Title: [XPM]unofficial jhPrimeminer thread
Post by: x3maniac on July 17, 2013, 02:18:18 AM
as per request from users at ypool.net the 1st and only pool mining for XPM!! I have compiled a unofficial jhPrimeminer for x64 and added some new custom codes.

[Information]
This is a custom mining software for mining at http://ypool.net.
As far as i know http://ypool.net is the only pool for Primecoin (XPM) and is very well maintained by user testix and jh000.

[FAQ]
The pool had few days to work out it's kinks and it is finding block and payout are correct.

[Miner Software]
So far only the 32bit has been compiled by author. the 64bit version works but varies. some had great success and some doesn't.

cabin updated build with the latest share values:
11ch   100
10ch   80
9ch   16
8ch   1
7ch   0.03125
6ch   0.000976

The builds I know about are:

[Mumus:]
V7.1 64bit - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.1.zip
v7.1 64bit AVX - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.1-AVX.zip
v6.0 32bit - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-32bit.zip

[Cabin]
It is quite similar to the Mumus build but does not do the large divisor test anymore since others have said this part is buggy and wastes a bit of time. It also has the -h parameter which specifies what length of chain to search for (default 9 which is the case for all current miners) and it removes some unused fermat test branches and other calculations.
64 bit - https://www.dropbox.com/s/szayx15skhevv7x/jhPrimeminer.zip

[rdebourbon]
This is an optimized version of Mumus 7.1 build with my sieve updates and a few other performance increases. Block rate should be as good as / better than Mumus. Use same as you would Mumus V7.1
64 bit - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zij7j205ucsmj3n/s3NKCVo8mL/jhPrimeMiner_RdBBeta3.zip

as per request from users at ypool.net the 1st and only pool mining for XPM!! I have compiled a unofficial jhPrimeminer for x64 and added some new custom codes.

http://test.dsync.net/jhPrimeminer.exe

added valid share counter and total share counter
compiled in x64 for windows
more to come

Is this version 0.2.1 or newer?

Works like a charm.

EDIT: Not happy with the results. I ran a mining hosting business for ypool's output in results, and earnings has dropped dramatically, as systems grew.


I respect ypool's owners and people contributing to it, but I just don't see it being profitable anymore for me.

In fact, I am earning more XPM, with less resources than what I was throwing at ypool.

I found something better, and moved on :)

http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/ and http://quttera.com/detailed_report/ypool.net currently think the URL is OK

So, just need to consider the fairly long wait for payouts with the pools 3400 block confirmations for Primecoin etc.

Looking for reports from existing ypool.net Feathercoin miners...

I just noticed my main desktop got stuck at a point where it was not reporting new work or primes/s. Now, I'm going to have to go and check all of my other machines as well. It'd be nice if shares had a time stamp on them to report their acceptance.

After having my jhPrimeminer freeze on my main computer I decided to check the rest of my rigs running it. 4/5 of them had stopped hashing / priming overnight. Two of them refused to return primes/s, but were still running at 100% cpu, one returned getwork failure error 0, and the last was returning 100% rejected shares. I restarted all of them after posting earlier, come back, and now my desktop is returning 100% rejected shares. I just restarted that and I'll watch over it here a little more closely to see if it keeps running.

Timestamps on shares for the client and workers online for the website are absolute must haves.

2.1 from ypool website.

EDIT: One hour later, my desktop is reporting 100% rejected shares again. I'm going to check all of my other rigs here shortly and if they've stopped mining I'm going back to solo mining.

.zip / .exe passed scans on virustotal and joti:

Virustotal is a great service to see if something has been accidentally infected. But if you wanted to send someone malware, you'd be really stupid to send something that Virustotal finds, since just about everybody checks that. So for that purpose it is useless.

You probably knew that, but I'm just putting it out there for the newbies. Just in case anyone thinks Virustotal can detect malware universally (it can't; it just checks against a list of known ones).

It's also cool to provide sources, but compiled .lib files could contain malware. Would be better to link to their source or reference their repo.

Rejections are a decent amount.  Ive had like 400 out of 1100 rejected.  Nice to have a pool.  Its only going to get better.

Title: jhPrimeminer 0.31 is out!
Post by: de_xt on July 22, 2013, 03:12:34 PM
A new version (0.31) is out today!

From github history:

Code:
New network protocol, speed improvements

I added a new binary based protocol similar to Stratum, called
'x.pushthrough'. Compared to the previous getwork() implementation it
reduces traffic by more than 90% and number of connects per minute by
98%. It has some other nice features which will be described in detail
in the coming specification.

I also started to tweak some OpenSSL functions to get more speed, the
miner should be about 20-30% faster now.

Let's give it a try... ;)

Whenever I build these from source using MS Visual Studio Express 2012 it always comes out way slower than the binaries others produce. Is there some compiler flag that need to be added? I'm doing Release x64 builds.

Edit: Actually the branch from hg5fm fixes the problem and runs great when I compile my own.. my bad!

Edit2: I love the new stats as well:

Ex. jhPrimeMiner.exe -s 100000 -t 2 -o http://ypool.net:10034 -u cabin.xpm_1 -p x

Updated Binary July 30th: https://www.dropbox.com/s/szayx15skhevv7x/jhPrimeminer.zip

Source changes from Mumu: https://www.dropbox.com/s/32tvjs9xays96ir/primecoinMiner_diffMumu.zip

I post it here only so that someone could maybe do a win32 build. It was really just me experimenting though so use at your own risk. All the previous authors know more about prime searching than me for sure. This is my recommended settings if you have 2 cores:

jhPrimeMiner.exe -h 8 -s 1500000 -o http://ypool.net:10034 -u cabin.xpm_1 -p x

If you have a newer/larger CPU I might try this:

jhPrimeMiner.exe -h 9 -s 1500000 -o http://ypool.net:10034 -u cabin.xpm_1 -p x

After the recent server change your stats should be something like this on a duo core:

---- New Block: 89766 - Diff: 9.25412 / 5.800000 PrimorialMultiplier: 37
---- Total/Valid shares: [ 185 / 189 ] 6CH_count: 53 - 7CH_count: 6 - Max: 8.42722

What do you mean on "antivirus went off"? I've just submitted the .exe file from the zip to some online antivirus scanners and found no problems. http://r.virscan.org/report/1dd9f52c4f970778a2a156de36655e03.html

Added even more optimizations and Share Value information based on the newest change in the pool.

You mean v0.33 alpha?  What matters more than # of shares though is their quality.

Have you made the tests running both of them on a longer period and compared the Share Value per hour?
The share/h is less relevant now. You can have a lower hare/h but higher val/h on long run.

Errm, why does this thing close immediatly for me?
64Bit W8 Pro, launched normal, and every other option but closes upon opening...

EDIT: Okay, I made a .bat, but now it "Has stopped working" upon launching...
am I missing something?
Also, what do you guess a good number for a Phenon ii x4 965BE (@4.3Ghz if that matters), I currently have it at 2.000.000.0.

EDIT 2: I think I found the problem, if you don't define a Pass/Udername, it crashes, I'm going to make an account on ypool for a minute..

EDIT 3: SHE's ALIVE! ~32.000 PPS, is that alright for my CPU?

Absolutely! I have around 55 k on my i7 2600k. So it's definitely normal result.

Last Update July 30th: https://www.dropbox.com/s/szayx15skhevv7x/jhPrimeminer.zip

I've tried some different settings that worked well for me:

jhPrimeMiner.exe -h 8 -s 1500000 -o http://ypool.net:10034 -u cabin.xpm_1 -p x

---- New Block: 89831 - Diff: 9.25495 / 5.800000 PrimorialMultiplier: 41
---- Total/Valid shares: [ 236 / 240 ] 6CH_count: 68 - 7CH_count: 7 - Max: 8.42722
═══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════
Val/h 7.69 - SPH: 74.62 - 5ch/h: 275 - PPS: 1406 Best: 5.09 Avg: 5.24


But I'll be away and won't be doing any more builds for a while so if the -h proves useful maybe Mumus can add it into his builds. nSieveDepth is used in the sieve weave at the bottom of prime.cpp:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/32tvjs9xays96ir/primecoinMiner_diffMumu.zip

also there is a line:
//printf("U");

that would print out when the sieve needs to be torn down and rebuilt.. I suspect this sucks tons of time and I've been trying to minimize it with various combinations of settings.

But I'll be away and won't be doing any more builds for a while so if the -h an -d params prove useful maybe Mumus can add them into his builds. They are both used in the sieve weave at the bottom here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/f39cxsus0u6xary/prime2.cpp
nSieveDepth and nSieveDivisor

also there is a line:
//printf("U");

that would print out when the sieve needs to be torn down and rebuilt.. I suspect this sucks tons of time and I've been trying to minimize it with various combinations of settings.

I'll review the code and I'll include what I think it's important. I'm planning to do also an auto adjustment on the SievePercentage (you call it nSieveDivisor).


Title: Re: [XPM]unofficial jhPrimeminer thread
Post by: mumus on July 29, 2013, 08:37:06 PM
The most recent version (v3) includes the following:

Add -d (SievePercentage) & -primes (SievePrimeLimit) command line parameters that can be used for more tweaking.
SievePercentage  ranges from 1 - 100, recommended is around 10 (default is 8). It limits how many base primes are used to filter out candidate multipliers in the sieve

The idea of SievePrimeLimit was taken from the latest official jhPrimeMiner source. The default value is equal to MaxSieveSize which I still recommend.

Changed the sampling time for the multiplier auto adjustment to 10 sec.

Download link for the 64bit binaries: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tauj21tvm06xk7y/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v3.zip (https://www.dropbox.com/s/tauj21tvm06xk7y/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v3.zip)
Source: https://github.com/hg5fm/jhPrimeminer (https://github.com/hg5fm/jhPrimeminer)

SievePercentage is similar to cabin's '-d' (SieveDivisor) parameter but it's using percentage instead of division of the sieve size. (ex: '-d 100' is equivalent to '-d 1' in cabins build,  50 = 2,  25=4 and so on)

Currently yes, only pool mining. Solo mining support is planned.

hehe, ok, that was fast, I'm sorry
I have an optimization that I wanted to apply, so that's why I wanted sources.
I'll just give it to you so you can include it in next versions: in prime2.cpp
this:
Code:
nSolvedMultiplier = ((fixedInverseU64) * (pU64 + 1ULL)) % pU64;
is the same as this:
Code:
nSolvedMultiplier = fixedInverseU64;
because pU64 is obviously 0 modulo pU64, and fixedInverseU64 is already less than pU64

Those are the txid for the 2 blocks I mined last week.

Just stating I feel much more confortable running source code I compiled myself and has proven quite efficient, given my cpu power, than running precomîled binaries working for a pool, with a x10 speed increase. :D

Post by: spoid on July 30, 2013, 12:33:32 AM
this is confusing. so do I use what mumus posted or the latest version from the ypool website? i'm trying to find out by benchmarking, but they changed the complete share system while I was at it... D: the mumus version finds way more shares and shows more info, so I'm going with that one for now.

Also, Kouye, when compiling yourself, do you have to change lots of parameters with specific knowledge about your CPU, or do programs simply run better on the machine/architecture they have been compiled on and you just follow some standard windows compiling tutorial?

It works in the other case too: if nBiTwinSeq is odd, you can do this:

Code:
nSolvedMultiplier = pU64 - fixedInverseU64;
because what we want is ( (-1) * fixedInverseU64 ) modulo pU64

If somebody want to give a try I made some modifications to the jhPrimeminer and I think  at least 2 times faster than the current release.
Source https://github.com/hg5fm/jhPrimeminer
Compiled 64bit version with all the dependencies https://github.com/hg5fm/jhPrimeminer/blob/master/src/jhPrimeminer-GMP.zip

dude chrome hates it, it wouldnt even let me download it and when i tried using firefox my antivirus went off.

I just moved the binaries to dropbox. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP.zip
What do you mean on "antivirus went off"? I've just submitted the .exe file from the zip to some online antivirus scanners and found no problems. http://r.virscan.org/report/1dd9f52c4f970778a2a156de36655e03.html

Added even more optimizations and Share Value information based on the newest change in the pool.
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP.zip (only 64bit, the 32bit is too slow)
More details and the source on https://github.com/hg5fm/jhPrimeminer



Anyone was able to make one for 32 bit?  thanks

I can build a 32bit version if you want but the one I compiled last time is like 5 times more slower than the 64bit version, so I'm not sure it's faster than the official 32bit client.

Done. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-32bit.zip
But, again, on my quad core i7 I have about 30k PPS with the 64bit version and only 3.5K PPS with the 32bit version. This means it's about 8x slower.
If anybody else has suggestions are welcome to comment. I guess the problem is with the 32bit version of the mpir library.

Thanks Mumus.. it runs a little bit faster than the original client for 32 bit..but the speed of getting shares need more monitoring. ;)

First off, thanks for a great miner version!

I do have a small issue with it, however, 5 and 6 chain share values are reported incorrectly in the miner.
5 length chains are worth 0.003 (miner reports 0.015625)
6 length chains are worth 0.1 (miner reports 0.125)

It seems 7 and 8 length chains are reported correctly, however, at 1 and 10 share value respectively.

In any event, great work on this miner, and keep it up!

The formula we  used in jhPrimeminer for calculating the share value is:
shareValue = pow(8, floor(shareDifficulty) - 7)

I will clarify with jh00 if this formula is still correct.

No problem at all, formulaically determining share value makes the most sense anyway. I just noticed the discrepancy through observation between the ypool site and my i7 at home.

Hi,
I just built another version with the following improvements:
1. Fixed the crash problem when the client disconnects from the pool
2. Included more code optimizations from SunnyKing's and Mikaekh's primecoin client. Thanks again. You may show your appreciations to them as well and to all who contributed (mtrlt, gara, etc.)
3. More tweaks to improve Share value rate.

Hopefully this version will be faster. I can't tell exact numbers because I didn't made a long run tests yet. Again when comparing versions use the same settings though this one may perform better with different sievesize and sievepercentage, and also use long run tests where let's say you have an equal number of 7+ difficulty shares.
I would like to have some feedback here.

Download from here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v4.zip

Edit: please note that the default values for the parameter -s and -d was changed.

Running on default settings first, immediately showing far higher 6ch/h #'s, hitting nothing but 6&7 value shares.  

This is right off the bat, so I will report back after many hours. I'm curious to see what this build will do with my previous settings.

Thanks for the update!

Update : Using default sievesize with -d 10 is working best for my i7 860/3.22/Win7/64.

Hopefully this version will be faster. I can't tell exact numbers because I didn't made a long run tests yet. Again when comparing versions use the same settings though this one may perform better with different sievesize and sievepercentage, and also use long run tests where let's say you have an equal number of 7+ difficulty shares.
I would like to have some feedback here.

Thank you very much... but... could you make a 32bit version?

Thanks in advance again

I've just updated the 32bit zip with the latest version.

Hi,
I just built another version with the following improvements:
1. Fixed the crash problem when the client disconnects from the pool

Here's my results of an overnight run with the latest build, default settings, stock clock i7 3770k:

http://i.imgur.com/I3LjhgO.jpg

Here are my rough personal increases:
SPH: +30%
VPH: +30%
4CH/H: +30%
5CH/H: +50%
6CH/H: +100%
7CH/H: +150%

Last 2 pages of personal stats on ypool (50 blocks) runs from 0.017 to 0.029 per block, this is the only active worker.

In short, great job! I look forward to more updates and to getting home from vacation so I can overclock my i7 (been meaning to, just been lazy and on vacation)

Hi,
New version. I hope I'm not driving crazy anybody.
No major changes in this version regarding to speed just maybe a little optimization to find higher difficulty shares (means less lower).
The Share Value calculation was fixed to be the same with the pool. Previous versions counted more value for each share so you can expect lower val/h . I know, this will make hard to compare to the previous version. Also the chain counters were changed. This means, for example when you find a 7diff share it won't be counter to the 6ch, 8 wont be counted to 6 and 7 and so on. So expect lower values also here.

Thanks for all your work mumus!

One thing I noticed -- If I run jhPrimeminer.exe overnight, my PPS seems to go down from when it initially ran (from 44k -> 29k), is this something others are experiencing? Could it just be due to something like CPU throttling for heat? When I restart, my PPS goes back up to the top. This was also with v4, just started with v5 :D

5ch/h: 528.74 - 6ch/h: 39.05

I've using -d 8 -s 2000000 at the moment, looks like I'm far off the mark.

EDIT - although looking at your output it looks more like v4 output rather than v5, my results above are on v5


Title: Re: [XPM]unofficial jhPrimeminer thread
Post by: bitwarrior on August 02, 2013, 07:56:21 AM
You might try putting -s 3000000   and leaving all the rest by default , it might give some increase on the share counts.. im using the v5 ... it is really way behind what v4 has offered.

I hope they have a better update than this on their next release.. and pls dont forget the 32 bit binaries ;)

https://www.dropbox.com/s/z8s7wbm0sg3mvnq/jhPrimeminer.zippy

Ex. jhPrimeMiner.exe -s 100000 -t 2 -o http://ypool.net:10034 -u cabin.xpm_1 -p x

On a 2.9Ghz Intel Duo E7500 I see:
Shares/h: 35.80 - 5ch/h: 179.02 - PPS: 1429 - Best: 4.940110 - Max: 6.566634

Note that the PPS stat now shows primes per second again, not attempts per second.


Is it best version for my i3-2125? Can you tell me best settings for it?

P.S. How much I have to pay, if you agree to unlock your miner for solo mining? Or maybe I will have to ask the pool developers or both you and pool?

I like the new interface of v5, though.

This is to Mumus

I have an 8 core Amd 8350 running v 4 on 4 cores and v5 on the other 4 cores.

Having run it now for about 45 minutes I found on V4 18 6ch shares, no 7ch
On the v5 instance I have gotten only 10 6ch shares and no 7ch.

Although the time is maybe short, that is a significant difference in speed and V4 is clearly more efficient than V5. However I like the V5 interface...

Te PPS on both is about 15000

Just my 2 cents. Hope it helps......

Thanks for the hard work....

Update: 2 hours mining

V4 = 34 shares  PPS = 17500
v5 = 32 shares PPS = 10500

I switch from V4 to V5 about the time the pool stopped taking 5ch shares, so I'm not sure if it was better or not...

During the last 20 hours, my XPM/block has varied greatly, while my share/block has steadily decreased.  The odd thing is that the 2 don't go together. (see below)

http://i.imgur.com/7O6UZxn.jpg

I didn't know how to have 2 'y' axis datum points, so the XPM was multiplied by 10000.  Actual XPM per block range .006381-.076052.

Hi,
Regarding to the best settings I can't really help. Peoples in the chat room may be able to help you more. I set as default for the miner the best I could find with my CPU but this seems to vary for everybody. I didn't had enough time to make testing with v5 where the val/h calculations was corrected and also the pool difficulty was raised to 6. All of this can influence the overall performance.
Regarding to solo mining, you don't have to pay. We've talked about and it's planned to be implemented.
Lately I just simply don't have enough time. (job/kids)

Just from this night. But can't do it with ugly original client !!! Who is sucker now? Again it's owner and builder original XPM wallet client! Never updated from him and never do any for good miner...

P.S. Ofc I take just 0.04 from my ~12 and I have just 5 XPM total for now... Not good deal... But still beter from 0 XPM...

The one thing I've noticed about v5 to v4 is if you have a very fast machine (overclocked 3770k or overclocked 3930k or E5645 Xeon), with the default settings, it seems to find lots of 7's, 8's and 9's than v4 although much less shares overall.  V4 got a random high chain, it's more commonplace in v5 with those machines.  That said, v4 got more shares, which seems to be better for the lower end machines (I have some quad core APU's and a laptop i7 sandy brdige) that like v4 much better, perhaps because they weren't going to get those high chains anyway.

Could be a settings thing.  I'll explore early next week when I have some time.

NOOB.

With all the programs like CGminer, BFG miner, Diablo, easyminer, etc, how can you expect the wallet to have the best mining solution?

Sunny was kind enough to include a miner with his wallet, mainly because it was a radical change from other coins and none of the current miners would work.

So, did Sunny ever say he was such an uber-programmer that no one could improve on his design? Nope.  There's just the NOOB crying cause he wasn't smart enough to figure this out before.

Maybe you need to read up on HOW orphan block are formed so you are at least an INFORMED NOOB, instead of the CLUELESS NOOB you currently are.

V4 cant count. Check how many shares you have and check how many 6chains for example. It counts twice the number of 6chains vs actual shares. We would need the pool to count so we really know how it is going.
Edit:
Just checked some more. 14 shares submitted. 25 6chains and 8 7chains. Actual value is 10 6chains and 4 7chains.

My XPM earned per day was higher (w/v4 before and after v5 test) and that's the stat I pay the most attention to.

The actual valid shares were lower (than reported in the stats on v4, but still higher than v5), you are correct, but 7ch & 8ch counts were observably much higher in rate under v4 on my rig and reflected in earned XPM during the v4 runs.

Again, this is simply my personal experience on my rig, ymmv.

You are probably right in the lost cause area, but, he's correct, he found a block through the pool.  The majority his whining centers on July 13/14 when he 'mined' 9 orphans.

From his statements, he must have been mining on V0.1.0 as he states he upgraded the client (V0.1.1 came out July 13th, so he didn't upgrade right away) and they all 'disappeared'

7857 blocks were mined on the 13th, 6918 on the 14th.  So, ~6x the normal rate.  With all the bot nets, I'd bet there were tons of orphaned blocks, especially if someone was running an out of date i3.

What I find most hilarious though is the fact that I told him ~6 days ago to use ypool and either cabin's or mumus' build, but he kept whining for days before finally switching and now is bragging over his find.

In addition, he keeps referring to $300 lost.  If he had mined them on the 13th or 14th, he would have had them in hand no later than the 15th.  The XPM value at the beginning of the 15th was .0021 and climbed to .0043 before starting to fall to .0034.  This greedy schmuck would have sold right then and there thinking it was headed back to .0021.  But his $300 claim would have come from the 19th when the price spiked .017 briefly before falling.  Hindsight is 20/20 but he wants you to think he'd have been smart enough to sell at the peak (when he's not even smart enough to understand what an orphaned block is).

So, yea, maybe he's a lost cause, but sometimes you have to rub the puppy's nose in it's shit for it to understand.

  Rough tests:

Baseline C2Q(40 hours):
11.5kPPS, 60SPH, 4.3VPH, 235-5ch/h, 17-6ch/h, 1.5-7ch/h

-s 200000 C2Q(1 hour):
15.9kpps, 44SPH, 2.3VPH, 140-5ch/h, 14.6-6ch/h, 0-7ch/h

-s 400000 C2Q(1 hour):
14.3kPPS, 65SPH, 2.9VPH, 270-5ch/h, 17.5 6ch/h, 0-7ch/h

-s 600000 C2Q(1 hour):
13.1kPPS, 49SPH, 2.6VPH, 232-5ch/h, 6.33-6ch/h, 1.27-7ch/h

Used mumus' V4 on a fairly matched pair of C2Q Q6600's.  Looks like luck plays a huge part, longer tests needed.

Initial analysis: More PPS, mostly less SPH, less VPH.

With higher sieve size (-s) and higher sieve percentage (-d)  there is a higher chance to get longer chain but if they are to high then the test/s (PPS) are lower so this means less chance. The secret is to find the balance which differs for each environment. But this can be done just using longer test periods. (because the nature of randomness to get longer chains). I'm also trying to find a way to automatically balance every parameter but there are too many, each affecting the performance in a little bit different way.

V4 cant count. Check how many shares you have and check how many 6chains for example. It counts twice the number of 6chains vs actual shares. We would need the pool to count so we really know how it is going.
Edit:
Just checked some more. 14 shares submitted. 25 6chains and 8 7chains. Actual value is 10 6chains and 4 7chains.

You're right. In V4 the calculation for the Val/h used the old formula which gave higher value for lower difficulty shares, and the counting of the 6,7,8 chains was different where I increased the counter of the lower chains when I found a higher one. I mean for example when a 8 length chain was found also the 6 and 7 counters were increased. I also introduced in v4 some kind of rescanning feature (I thought this will increase the chances to find  a share) which had a bug resulting an increased value in the 5+ chain counters.
So in V4 these problems were fixed, and as a result the numbers are lower. After all when comparing what matters is the earned XPM/day, using the same settings and same machines with both version. Personally I don't have the resource and the patience to do these kind of long running tests. I always have a new idea the I have to try.

Hi to the programmers (or anybody else who can help)

I am trying to build the miners ( all versions) and get the consistant error, when building)  as follows.

1>prime2.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol ___gmpz_mul
..
...
..

etc (25 errors total)

All seem to be about the MPIR libraries

I can not find the gmpz_mul but only the mpz_mul, which is in the mpirI.h file. I alos cna not find any reference to the variables.

Is there some setup I must do or which I have omitted with the mpir library?

When I set the verbose flag on it says the following

1>  Unused libraries:
1>    lib\openssl\ssleay32MT.lib
1>    lib\mpir\mpirxx.lib
1>    lib\mpir\mpir.lib
..
..

Please help. I am a fair noob on this, but I would like to learn. (BTW I have googled)


Followup:

I think I found it. The project must be compiled in X64 but the project was set to default Win32. Builds and compiles now, however, what mpri libraries are now win32 and which are x64? Why cant mpri libraries be simpler and standard provided? A hell of a lot of forced changes by compiler ... makes things suspicious... Maybe some more refinements?

mumus, how about trying to collect data on certain CPU's automatically, like, have the miner detect the cpu type (EX: i5 3570k) and collect enough information (for example if 100 people were to use an i5 3570k to mine primecoins, after you collect data from them, you can find out the best settings using that data and either relay the results to everyone, or have the miner automatically adjust to the best settings every xx blocks?)

I've been testing v4 and v5 on a Win7 64 i7 950 (4 core) and a Ubuntu 64 Opteron 365 (8 core) under wine.

The Win7 on v5 appears to be running OK with similar(ish) results to v4, although it is very difficult to compare the two.

However, the Ubuntu on v5 produces hardly any shares at all and nothing in the 7 ch/h. I tried -s from 200,000 all the way up to 5 million with even worse results. I'm back to v4 on Ubuntu and currently running at 14 Val/h.

The Win 7 on v5 is showing about 4 Val/h default settings.

Can I directly compare Val/h between v4 and v5?

Keep up the great work on this !!!!!!

Well, using identical settings on V4 and V5 and 4 days of testing V4 wins in terms of XPM/day (V4 day 1: 12.96, V5 day 2: 9.05, V5 day 3: 9.43, V4 day 4: 10.86)  V5 wins in terms of difficulty: 2 blocks found in 2 days vs 1 in 3 days.  So, as it stands, virtual tossup, but I give the win to V4.

Sieve size and percentage tuning can help somewhat but I never managed to get performance of 8 processes with single one.

1 day on pool = 12XPM (24 CPU threads, 60GB RAM)
1 day on solo mining = 34XPM (8 threads, 60GB RAM)

make your conclusions ;)

btw I'm doing both at the same time (32 cores in total), so one complements the other

Nice results. Which miner are you using on solo?

Are those Xeons your using?

yup, 2 xeons with hyperthreading

I noticed my Xeon E5-1620 runs better with -4, -s 600000 and -d 16 vs -t 8 -s 2000000 or 1500000 and -d 8.
Can it be that Hyper threading hurts mining performance?

My i7-2700K runs better with -t 4 than -t 8. Thermal throttling at t8 forces it to downclock for one, the PPS remains nearly the same.

define "found a block" I've been mining for 5 days and havn't found any blocks, but still managed to pull down XPM (and even withdrew it just fine).

Also, note I didn't release a 5-x64-sse2, that's what mumus released. Same with the 4-x64-sse2. These are simply alternate compiles of the same code that he already released.

From my personal testing, I have not found the avx build to be any better than the sse2 builds.

Can anyone give me an idea on the sort of return I should be seeing.  I have an i5 2500k 3.3Ghz, I've had it running using 3 threads for almost 24hours now and have earned just under 1 XPM. I'm using -d 10 and haven't changed the -s, should I change this?  How does -s work?

I'm using v4 of mumus miner at the moment, I seem to get better earnings per block from that than v5, but that may just be my misinterpretation. 

Also can anyone explain the stats on the personal stats page of the ypool webpage?

- What bearing does overall share value have?
- The Share value figure at the top - how does that equate to how much you get paid?

Sorry if this sounds noobish, I've read this entire thread and can't get any clear definition from here or the pool website.

Cheers,

Beanhead

Hi folks!
What about a new version?
V6 - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6.zip
32bit: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-32bit.zip
Changes:
1. Initial Auto tuning related to L1 cache size. It takes about 4 min after the minder was started. For some configurations can double the seeped.
2. Keyboard shortcuts for those that likes to play with the numbers.
3. Round sieve percentage - Similar feature that was introduced in mikaelh's hp8 primecoin client. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=255782.0
Basically the parameter sets how much time is spent in the sieve and how much time is spent on checking the candidates produced by the sieve.

Enjoy.

Edit: Both the miner and the mpir.dll Compiled with AVX flag - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-AVX.zip
Edit2: The jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-AVX.zip now contains the vcredist_x64.exe which is required to run the miner. It can be downloaded also from MS: http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/B/16B06F60-3B20-4FF2-B699-5E9B7962F9AE/VSU3/vcredist_x64.exe

Edit3: The AVX version is the same miner compiled to support the AVX instruction set from the newer CPUs. You can check if your CPU support AVX using CPUZ. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html. From my initial testing I couldn't find any significant speed difference between AVX and the regular one, probably because the code wasn't written to use it. If somebody can come out with a proof that it's worth using AVX then let us know.

Not correct, with the increasing difficulty more than half of the 9ch shares that are submitted don't solve a block. Nevertheless the pool rewards all shares between 9.0 and 9.999 the same.

I tried AVX on Windows 7 with an i5 3570k and got the msvcr110.dll mentioned above, installed the Visual C++ package and don't see the error anymore but it force closes on startup :(

Is it possible to run the AVX version on Ubuntu? I tried it with an i7 3820 but get the msvcr110.dll error, not sure how to fix this through WINE.

Running both with default settings. Tried tuning settings on v4 before but never found anything significantly better than default. Performance varies much depending on number of processes/threads.

AVX not working :/, first calls out MXVCR110.dll missing, when I d/l and add it then I get "The application was unable to start correctly (0x000007b)"

Loving the regular build, after 5 hours I'm up from 370 to 523 shares per block and XPM per block went from .017729 avg to .023547 avg.

Did you google and install "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 3"

In earlier version of the miner/pool the share value calculation was different. After the pool changed the share value calculation I've updated also the miner (v5+)

Hi folks!
What about a new version?
V6 - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6.zip
32bit: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-32bit.zip
Changes:
1. Initial Auto tuning related to L1 cache size. It takes about 4 min after the minder was started. For some configurations can double the seeped.
2. Keyboard shortcuts for those that likes to play with the numbers.
3. Round sieve percentage - Similar feature that was introduced in mikaelh's hp8 primecoin client. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=255782.0
Basically the parameter sets how much time is spent in the sieve and how much time is spent on checking the candidates produced by the sieve.

Enjoy.

Edit: Both the miner and the mpir.dll Compiled with AVX flag - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-AVX.zip
Edit2: The jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-AVX.zip now contains the vcredist_x64.exe which is required to run the miner. It can be downloaded also from MS: http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/B/16B06F60-3B20-4FF2-B699-5E9B7962F9AE/VSU3/vcredist_x64.exe

Edit3: The AVX version is the same miner compiled to support the AVX instruction set from the newer CPUs. You can check if your CPU support AVX using CPUZ. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html. From my initial testing I couldn't find any significant speed difference between AVX and the regular one, probably because the code wasn't written to use it. If somebody can come out with a proof that it's worth using AVX then let us know.

Source code is now updated on https://github.com/hg5fm/jhPrimeminer/

With a i5-2500 @3.3GHz v5 and v6 are slower than v4... I don't know why?  ???

I have a i5-2500k, I ran v6 avx build last night, overall I got more XPM per hour (got about 0.75 xpm in 8.5 hours, compared to 1xpm in the previous 24 hours), but maybe this was luck as I got 3 8ch shares and have never had any of these with v4 or v5. I did also seem to get more 7ch shares, but again maybe this is just luck.  It is hard to compare v4 as the stats were messed up with that version (shares were being double counted by the miner).

I think I am getting less 6ch shares with v6 as my share count on the ypool stats page has dropped from 110-130 to the 60-70's, again hard to judge with variance etc, but this stat started to drop as soon as I started using v6, so without the luck of finding the 8ch shares last night I think I would be earning less.  I'll keep v6 running for 24hrs in total and report back.

Purely luck. Came here to post my own lucky streak last night with a crappy CPU (removed).

As you can see, I mined 348 x 6ch shares overnight for a total value of 34.8. I hit the jackpot twice with 9ch value shares, for a total of 200 share value. If I'm not mistaken, each "step up" in share value is 15x more rare, so generally you need to mine 3375 6ch shares before hitting any 9ch shares.

The expected value from mining this long would be:

348 x 0.1 = 34.8
23.2 x 1 = 23.2
1.55 x 10 = 15.5
0.1 x 100 = 10

Total = 83.5

Instead I mined a total value of 250.8. It's all random variance (you can also call it luck).

That's some nice luck you had there Sterling!  Thanks for the clarification.

I'm so used to mining litecoins using a PPS pool, the variance with XPM is something I'm not used to.

So I'm suddenly having problems with running 64bit executables on OSX through wine. Is anyone else having problems?

Details:
Running OSX 10.8.4 on a MBP.
$ uname -a
Darwin [...] 12.4.0 Darwin Kernel Version 12.4.0: Wed May  1 17:57:12 PDT 2013; root:xnu-2050.24.15~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64
Installed wine through MacPorts with no noticeable errors.
Running wine 1.7.0


So my kernel is 64 bit, but when I run wine on the new (or the older) miner, it says:
err:process:create_process starting 64-bit process L"[...]/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6_64bit\\jhPrimeminer.exe" not supported in 32-bit wineprefix
wine: Bad EXE format for Z:[...]\jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6_64bit\jhPrimeminer.exe.

It's strange, because I'm 99% sure that I was able to run the 64 bit version of the earlier miners (v2 and v3) without any problems. I've tried deleting the ~/.wine folder, reinstalling wine and i get the same error.

I've googled around a bit but nothing I try seems to work. I even went so far as trying to compile from source, but gave up due to compile errors, but I may give it another shot.

Any help would be appreciated.

I really don't know anything about wine, but looking at the error message above, do you need to download a 64-bit version of wine? or use a flag in wine to denote your running a 64-bit app?  Pure guesswork from me I'm afraid.

From what I understand (I could be wrong), wine should be installed through macports as 64 bit, which should be able to run 64bit or 32 bit exes without any other input. I've tried using the WINEARCH and WINEPREFIX flags, but they don't change the outcome:
$ WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine64/ wine jhPrimeminer [args]
Gives the same error even when the wine prefix dir is a new directory.

I had had similar problem with previous x64 builds on Ubuntu until I removed all wine packages, deleted all its prefixes and built latest wine from source. Looks like something was broken in wine installation.

It seems to run fine on my Ubuntu box.
But guess I'll try to find and remove all the wine related files I can find, and then build from source again.

Might be wrong here, but mumus said there was an error in val/h calculation in v4. You should verify that your xpm/hr is relatively constant (minus difficulty increase).

@Sterling, It's hard for me to tell if my xpm/hr is constant, because I have three machines that are workers for the same account, so I can't really tell what is coming from where on ypool.

Hi Mumus

Firstly I am a noob in programming c and, since I wanted to learn, I though "what the hell, might as well try this"

So I am trying to understand you code and algorithm and came on a possible error. I think I am using V5

At the end of the bool CSieveOfEratosthenes::Weave()

you have

{
                const unsigned long lCompositeCunningham1 = pCompositeCunningham1A | pCompositeCunningham1B;
                const unsigned long lCompositeCunningham2 = pCompositeCunningham2A | pCompositeCunningham2B;

                pCandidateCunningham1 = ~lCompositeCunningham1;
                pCandidates = ~(lCompositeCunningham1 & lCompositeCunningham2 & lCompositeBiTwin);
            }
The way that I see it is you do not have a "pCandidateCunningham2 = ~lCompositeCunningham2;" This means in my opinion that you are not checking for the second series.

 Is this correct?

Get a cpu tool and make sure 1. the temps are ok (adjust fan speeds and so on) and 2. you run at the best your cpu can handle (advice: within normal boundaries, for example the turbo speed officially supported by the cpu)

This code was taken from the primecoin client optimized by mikaelh published on https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=255782.0, where he did a very nice job optimizing the code.
I didn't took the time yet to fully understand what exactly he did there. I guess it's better to ask him directly.  In any case I will also check if what you wrote is correct.

This is happening in v6 running through wine on my linux box (Ubuntu 13.04). This is the same machine that were the load is dropping.
I am working around that problem by killing and restarting the miner every half hour, BTW).

The miner seems to be running, but it keeps throwing an error:

err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x140061040 "?" wait timed out in thread 002f, blocked by 0032, retrying (60 sec)

Any idea why?

I've tried to test also on a 12 core Linux (Ubuntu 12.10) machine using wine and I didn't got so far. It's crashing all the time so I'm also restarting using a script. The problem that I have only 1Gb RAM + 1Gb swap, and it seems that it is killed because of low memory. Under windows I can't see that has any memory leak and usually it uses about 30Mb (depending on the parameters). More investigation is needed. the problem that I'm less familiar to work under Linux especially when it comes to coding.

I can fairly safely rule out memory issues. I have 48 GB in that machine with around 32 GB free. Is it possible that it is related to storage in the L1 cache? I am also using the computer for other work stuff (it's my work desktop). I no almost nothing about L1, so this probably sounds dumb.

Actually, I'm having the same problem with v6 as I previously had with v5, where it runs fine for a while, but then drops down to about 40% load. Also, my Val/h is much lower then before, previously it was around 17-18 with v4 and with v6 after an hour or so it's hovering around 5. Any idea what is going on mumus?

Make sure you aren't throttling down because of heat issues.

You might helped by making a swap file in case you run out of memory.

I don't think that is a problem either, the 8 cores are all within 57 to 66 C. I don't think that should be a problem.

Looks like it happens when the jhPrimeminer client disconnects from the pool and doesn't comes bask to mining on reconnect. I will try to fix it asap.

Yes, but no one else in the pool is getting anywhere near those stats.  That is a serious amount of horse power to get that kind of figure.  The closest is about 11000, but those two combined are 32000!  Looks out of place in the list of other miners.  Maybe I'm just being paranoid. Maybe there is a GPU version out there? Maybe he owns a server farm? Maybe we are all mining for him? Maybe  it isn't even him? Maybe I should shut up lol.

How effing stupid are you?  HOW are we mining for him???  In a quick look, he's found 9 out of last 30 blocks.  1.41-1.52 average per block x 30 blocks = 42.3-45.6 XPM.  If he'd been mining solo that'd be well over 90!  Sure looks to me like HE's mining for US.  (Prob shouldn't tell him, he'll quit the pool and then where are we?)

So what if he's running a VPS farm with 400 CPUs?  I know I am close to break-even, have earned 97XPM through the pool and my stats say I've found 9 blocks.  So I would have been bettter off if I'd been solo, but I'd not have had a constant income.  It's a trade off.

Thank you for the nice comments, I meant no ill will to Mumus or anyone else by my comments, I was theorising and you obviously missed my point.  There is no escaping that those stats do stand out.

The following is how sad and stupid I am,

How do we know that the compiled version that we have all downloaded contains the same source code as what has been posted on github?  Unless someone has taken the time to disassemble it? Then we don't.

So in theory, and I am not suggest this is the case, there could be some code in the miner we are all running that submits the odd share here or there to an account other than the one specified when you run it.  The odd share here or there times a couple of thousand miners? You do the maths.

This is how it is potentially possible that we are mining for him. What a ridiculously stupid idea though.

Again I was theorising around the possibilities of that vast power advantage those two users appear to have over everyone else.  It may not even be Mumus, and in which case the theory above is completely null and void.

that's exactly what I thought... it's a proprietary protocol and a proprietary miner, open sourced, yes, but we have no idea if the compiled version is the open source one... that discrepancy in the share count is eye catching.

 :) No hard feelings. I can understand your thinking and feelings.
I wish I could have one of those accounts.
But getting these result is no such a big deal. Using 50-100 instances of VPS can make this easily, when somebody has the guts to invest. Just check the other forum ("Primecoin High Performance"), some peoples are using enormous computing power to do solo mining. Actually these users with big hashing power just helps the pool to have less variance,  getting more  consistent income and less dependent on luck.
If you want to solve your concerns that the binary somehow submit shares to my account you may ask someone who trust to compile the code and publish it. jh00 can be one of them. I think everybody trusts him. Also with a sniffer or connection monitor (tcpview) can be easily discovered if the binaries behaves strangely. BTW, the idea is not that stupid, could be easily implemented, but I'm sure some of you already checked the binaries and would be discovered already. Anyway who don't trust the binaries used the code to compile for themselves.

Hi Mumus,

I hope you really mean "no hard feelings" as it definitely wasn't my intention to offend.  You have spent a lot of time and effort in to developing this miner, and myself and everyone else really appreciate it.  As soon as I have some XPM in my wallet I'll make a donation for your efforts.

I'm a suspicious person by nature though, lol.

You're absolutely right though, a wireshark trace or compiling the binaries from the source (after checking the code of course) would resolve any doubts.

I for one, although suspicious, am also lazy so am using the compiled binaries that you posted!  ;D

Thanks for your understanding and open mind.

Cheers,

Beanhead.

You know that this is pure luck. I was in the both sides, and I still I prefer using the pool.
I'm nut sure that the jhPrimeminer is faster or better than mikalh's HP9 primecoin client. I never compared them and it's hard to compare without running with enough computer power and over a longer period of time.

I hope you really mean "no hard feelings" as it definitely wasn't my intention to offend.  You have spent a lot of time and effort in to developing this miner, and myself and everyone else really appreciate it.  As soon as I have some XPM in my wallet I'll make a donation for your efforts.

I'm a suspicious person by nature though, lol.

You're absolutely right though, a wireshark trace or compiling the binaries from the source (after checking the code of course) would resolve any doubts.

I for one, although suspicious, am also lazy so am using the compiled binaries that you posted!  ;D

Thanks for your understanding and open mind.

Cheers,

Beanhead.

Just to be correct, I didn't developed the miner. I just put some pieces together to be more efficient.

Just for the record,official 0.4 was out a few days ago. Changelog:

Code:
Extended sieve algorithm. Now we also search for chains where origin a
is:
a = fixedMultiplier * pr# * 2^n
instead of just
a = fixedMultiplier * pr#
The advantage is that when sieving for chains, we need to sieve *2, *4,
*8, *16, *32, ... anyway. Therefore we can reuse the result of the
previous sieve in the next stage as the new base for chains. In other
words, we init the sieve as usual. Scan the multipliers. Then when
finished, we multiply the fixedMultiplier by 2 and only re-sieve the
highest factor of the chain.
In theory this decreases sieve time by 1 / chainlength. In practice the
actual time we save is about 1 / 5 currently due to higher memory
requirement and not perfectly optimized sieving. The downside is that we
often encounter duplicate candidates, but this can be fixed.

Other changes:
I added a fast but wasteful memory allocator for mpz. It reduces
malloc/free time for mpz to nearly zero.

mumus, just wondering, will you make an optimized version of 0.4 as well? I am doubting whether to use yours or the newer 0.4.

As far as I see the official 0.4 version should contain most of the optimizations and even more. (See the changes on https://github.com/jh000/jhPrimeminer)
I haven't tried to run it for longer period (I'm running tests for my ideas) but it definitely worth a try.

Hi Mumus,

Is there any chance you can have an option to solo mine?

Over a 5 day period my desktop i7 found 3 blocks (2 on v5, 1 on v6) for the pool and I only got 14 XPM for my efforts  >:(

It would be really good if I could solo mine with your miner.

You know that this is pure luck. I was in the both sides, and I still I prefer using the pool.
I'm nut sure that the jhPrimeminer is faster or better than mikalh's HP9 primecoin client. I never compared them and it's hard to compare without running with enough computer power and over a longer period of time.
Yes, we can only tell after numerous days of testing and probably just luck. Started running hp9 and found a block after 8 hours although I have been running hp9 in the past for over 2-3 days without finding anything. I'll probably stick to a mixture of solo and pool.

Thanks.

mumus, is there an IRC chatroom on freenode that people in this thread and use for discussion?  

I'm thinking of starting a mining hardware comparison page or something for primecoin.

With my A10-4600m, using the following settings for V6 AVX: -s 200000 -d 16 -t 4
I am managing between 25000-19000 PPS with 9.1 Val/h.. whatever that means.

The strange thing about the performance of my A10, is that i must disable Primorial Multiplier Auto Tunning, or it goes from its start up value of 67 (which is good for this cpu, as far as I can tell), down to 19.. which lowers PPS and Val/h.

Also, the startup tuning seems odd.  At parts of it, i have much higher PPS, but after awhile, it slows down... and its final value always seems to be slower.  Is there anyway we could get flags to disable the auto tuning, and manually program the L1cache value?  Also, another flag to disable Primorial Multiplier Auto Tunning on startup.  It simply doesn't work for my CPU.

I'm not sure what Val/h is, but my Core2 Duo downstairs is getting about the same, with much lower PPS.

If those two accounts on ypool do belong to you mumus, I am interested to hear what hardware you are mining with.

v6 AVX has been a champ for me on this machine.  I've gone from the 1900 PPS i could muster out of HP9, to this 20000 PPS setup, and I somehow managed to mine not 1, but two blocks lastnight!

I may not be able to answer all your questions, but I can do this one. Val/h is "share value per hour". And Share Values are exactly what they sound like, the value of each found and submitted share (6ch = 0.1, 7ch = 1, etc)

For Windows v6 and Linux v4. These are just my test results and others will probably be different.

I suggest you do your own tests to find out what works best on your kit.

Yes, only works through wine on Linux. Performance is poor through wine so I solo mine now on Linux.

Mumus,

just fyi, your v6 is much faster then the current .4 version. I dont know where the differences are, but my shares in the pool more then halved since the change earlier today. And its not luck as it are more then 50 computers running which so far had a pretty steady rate even though it's off course slowly declining.

Personally I rarely on any chat room, with a full time job and 3 kids I just simply can't.
The performance you have is indeed not so good. First the -s 200000 is too low I think. I got poor performance every time I set lower than 500000. I'm usually using 2000000.
Regarding to PPS I rarely using as a reference. First I'm checking the 4ch/h and I'm trying to tune to max. Then based on longer test period I try to go for maxing out 5ch/h or 6ch/h, depending how fast is the computer. on a slow machine 6ch/h  must be measured for too long time to overcome the random factor.
The startup tuning works well with higher sieve size and higher SievePercentage. No wonder that it's odd for -s 200000 -d 16.
Those two accounts you mentioned (unfortunately) doesn't belongs to me as I also write in one of my previous post. Regarding to hardware I use i7 3770 for development and I've just started some testing on AMD Opteron 4180 which meantime doesn't performs so well. I expected much more per core.
Right now I'm working on a new release with some of the features that you requested and I'll publish the code but I don't want to build the binaries yet. Some more testing needs to be done.

I confirm this. On wine, v4 does better than any other miner, including hp9. Also, more than 6 threads per process cause decrease in performance. Probably I could get more rate with hp9 but running 8 instances of it on my 48-core node would be pain in the ass (8 virtual machines, 8 wallets, 8 blockchain copies etc.)

P.S. Unfortunately, jhPrimeminer crashes when I try to point it to my local node with getwork.

Hi,
A minor release to fix some of the problems we encountered lately and some features mostly for advanced users. As usual this version is not well tested, (time issue). The source is on github.
1. Implemented some kind of heartbeat monitoring, if a thread get stuck it's automatically restarted. Hopefully this will resolve the problem some of you reported that after a while the mining speed is dropped.
2. By default the initial cache auto tuning is disabled. It can be enabled using the "-tune true" command line parameter or by pressing the 'c' button in the miner.
3. The size of L1CacheElements that the above mentioned auto tuning used to set, is by default 256000 and can be set using the '-c' parameter (must be between 64000 - 2000000 and multiply of 32)
4. The auto tuning for the round sieve percentage can be also disabled by specifying a fixed value for the primorialMultiplier with the '-m' parameter (must be between 5 - 1009 and should be a prime number)

I intentionally left out these new parameters from the help because these are intended for more advanced users.
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.zip
I won't post the AVX version because I think it has no performance gain. In case somebody saw any improvement with AVX let me know.

v4mumusv6miner
inspired by this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=…2704#msg2902704

both of the mumusminer accounts are one person. i did this because i can't see the xpm per worker and wanted to find out which version made more. v4 has found about 15 less blocks but has made more primecoins so far. v6 has stayed pretty close in xpm income to v4 but with a lot more solved blocks. based on the total xpm income for the past 36 hours, i have to say v4 makes the miner more primecoins and v6 solves a LOT more blocks for the pool.

there is an equal amount of processing power allocated to each version. both versions of the miner are running with default settings.

i am not mumu. those accounts are not getting shares from mumus version
of the pool miner. they are results from the actual miners running on windows machines that i set up myself.

you can check the results for newer blocks to see if the xpm payout ever becomes higher for v6 than for v4. i've only seen this happen a couple times in the past day or so, but the v4 income per block has been dropping the past couple of hours so it could change...especially if ypool increases the share value for higher chain counts.

i would post this in bitcointalk forums but i'd have to register an account and get out of newbie jail. if anyone reads this and feels like copying it to that thread, feel free to do so.

And later in the same thread:

to compare numbers:

v4 has 41 blocks found and 409 primecoins credited to the account.
--basically even with solo mining if i add the donation to the total

v6 has 51 blocks found and 370 credited to the account
--obviously this version is MUCH better at finding blocks and better for the pool over all. unfortunately, the share handling is killing this miner's profit potential.

Strictly speaking, the highlighted can be put under doubt. Standard deviation for 46 found blocks is about 0.5*sqrt(46) = 3.39. For 99.7% confidence interval it's 3*SD = 10.17, so the two values are within error. Need some more testing.

mumus, is there an IRC chatroom on freenode that people in this thread and use for discussion?  

I'm thinking of starting a mining hardware comparison page or something for primecoin.

With my A10-4600m, using the following settings for V6 AVX: -s 200000 -d 16 -t 4
I am managing between 25000-19000 PPS with 9.1 Val/h.. whatever that means.

The strange thing about the performance of my A10, is that i must disable Primorial Multiplier Auto Tunning, or it goes from its start up value of 67 (which is good for this cpu, as far as I can tell), down to 19.. which lowers PPS and Val/h.

Also, the startup tuning seems odd.  At parts of it, i have much higher PPS, but after awhile, it slows down... and its final value always seems to be slower.  Is there anyway we could get flags to disable the auto tuning, and manually program the L1cache value?  Also, another flag to disable Primorial Multiplier Auto Tunning on startup.  It simply doesn't work for my CPU.

I'm not sure what Val/h is, but my Core2 Duo downstairs is getting about the same, with much lower PPS.

If those two accounts on ypool do belong to you mumus, I am interested to hear what hardware you are mining with.

v6 AVX has been a champ for me on this machine.  I've gone from the 1900 PPS i could muster out of HP9, to this 20000 PPS setup, and I somehow managed to mine not 1, but two blocks lastnight!
Personally I rarely on any chat room, with a full time job and 3 kids I just simply can't.
The performance you have is indeed not so good. First the -s 200000 is too low I think. I got poor performance every time I set lower than 500000. I'm usually using 2000000.
Regarding to PPS I rarely using as a reference. First I'm checking the 4ch/h and I'm trying to tune to max. Then based on longer test period I try to go for maxing out 5ch/h or 6ch/h, depending how fast is the computer. on a slow machine 6ch/h  must be measured for too long time to overcome the random factor.
The startup tuning works well with higher sieve size and higher SievePercentage. No wonder that it's odd for -s 200000 -d 16.
Those two accounts you mentioned (unfortunately) doesn't belongs to me as I also write in one of my previous post. Regarding to hardware I use i7 3770 for development and I've just started some testing on AMD Opteron 4180 which meantime doesn't performs so well. I expected much more per core.
Right now I'm working on a new release with some of the features that you requested and I'll publish the code but I don't want to build the binaries yet. Some more testing needs to be done.

Thanks for getting back to me.  I benchmarked my A10-4600m at various points, but the fastest i have managed 4ch was at the above settings.

A few examples:

-s 200000 -d 16 -t 4:
Val/h 3.283 - PPS: 23282 - 4ch/h: 1786.01 - 5ch/h: 140.29 - 6ch/h: 12.93 - Last 4ch/h: 1346.97 - Last 5ch/h: 0.00

That was an extended length of time, almost a day, after a few hours (restarted), i can manage more along the lines of 2100 4ch/h.. so, I am not sure if its variance, or a leak causing a slow down.  v6 AVX offers me a rather large performance gain over v5 with the same settings (unsure why).

If I enable Primorial Multiplier Auto Tunning with that serv and -d setting, then my performance drops of drasticly:
Sieve/Test ratio: 85.7 / 14.3 %  - New PrimorialMultiplier: 37 (this is about where it settles to tune in at)

Val/h 0.000 - PPS: 11012 - 4ch/h: 1725.09 - 5ch/h: 175.43 - 6ch/h: 0.00 - Last 4 ch/h: 897.87 - Last 5ch/h: 0.00

Sometimes my PPS will drop as low as 800 or worse, and my shares per round dip to almost nothing.  My CoreDuo is beating at my A10 in those instances!?


-s 1200000 -d 16 -t 4:

Primorial Multiplier Auto Tunning Disabled:
Val/h 0.861 - PPS: 10702 - 4ch/h: 1308.35 - 5ch/h: 94.68 - 6ch/h: 8.61 - Last 4ch/h: 0.00 - Last 5ch/h: 448.99

That rate wasn't a quick benchmark either.  I let it run for almost 45mins. T_T

Primorial Multiplier Auto Tunning enabled:
Sieve/Test ratio: 85.4 / 14.6 %  - New PrimorialMultiplier: 67
Val/h 0.589 - PPS: 7439 - 4ch/h: 1355.81 - 5ch/h: 106.11 - 6ch/h: 5.89 - Last 4ch/h: 448.99 - Last 5ch/h: 0.00

Once again, things get worse with this enabled.  Bulldozer+ cores must be a bitch to tune with these settings.  Can AVX be compiled and optimized for AMD in your binaries, or is Intel simply getting better optimizations at the compiler level?  I know this is a laptop cpu, but something seems off (I did check, I'm not running any power saving features.  I'll do some checking against v5 and v6 non-AVX tomorrow (I haven't tired v6 non-AVX).

Weird stuff... I'm using v6 and the last 3 shares as soon as I find one I get disconnected.

08/11/13 - 16:08:09 - SHARE FOUND !!! (Th#: 2) ---  DIFF: 6.717313 - VAL: 0.100    >6
xpt: Disconnected, auto reconnect in 30 seconds
Sieve/Test ratio: 74.7 / 25.3 %  - New PrimorialMultiplier: 59
Sieve/Test ratio: 100.0 / 0.0 %  - New PrimorialMultiplier: 61
Sieve/Test ratio: 0.0 / 100.0 %  - New PrimorialMultiplier: 59
Sieve/Test ratio: 0.0 / 100.0 %  - New PrimorialMultiplier: 53
Sieve/Test ratio: 0.0 / 100.0 %  - New PrimorialMultiplier: 47
Sieve/Test ratio: 0.0 / 100.0 %  - New PrimorialMultiplier: 43

Anybody saw something similar?


Edit: It keeps happening now all the time, already like 5 times now at least and maybe some more times I didn't saw it.

This same thing was happening to me..IDk whats the deal.. I dont think it has to do with your internet connection.

The pool was getting DoSSed earlier or something.  Seems to have cleared up now.

Hi,
A minor release to fix some of the problems we encountered lately and some features mostly for advanced users. As usual this version is not well tested, (time issue). The source is on github.
1. Implemented some kind of heartbeat monitoring, if a thread get stuck it's automatically restarted. Hopefully this will resolve the problem some of you reported that after a while the mining speed is dropped.
2. By default the initial cache auto tuning is disabled. It can be enabled using the "-tune true" command line parameter or by pressing the 'c' button in the miner.
3. The size of L1CacheElements that the above mentioned auto tuning used to set, is by default 256000 and can be set using the '-c' parameter (must be between 64000 - 2000000 and multiply of 32)
4. The auto tuning for the round sieve percentage can be also disabled by specifying a fixed value for the primorialMultiplier with the '-m' parameter (must be between 5 - 1009 and should be a prime number)

I intentionally left out these new parameters from the help because these are intended for more advanced users.
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.zip
I won't post the AVX version because I think it has no performance gain. In case somebody saw any improvement with AVX let me know.
32bit - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7-32bit.zip

Edit: the 32 bit version is broken, don't use it until I'll find out what's the problem with it.
I saw performance gains with AVX....please compile it with AVX included!

This parameter used to be automatically adjusted in the miner. I can't say that a lower or higher is better because it depends on other parameters. I've added this parameter for users that already found the optimal value with one specific configuration and they want to preset and don't want the auto tuning to mess with it.

Just noticed this for all interested:

http://community.ypool.net/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=58

And later in the same thread:
Quote
to compare numbers:

v4 has 41 blocks found and 409 primecoins credited to the account.
--basically even with solo mining if i add the donation to the total

v6 has 51 blocks found and 370 credited to the account
--obviously this version is MUCH better at finding blocks and better for the pool over all. unfortunately, the share handling is killing this miner's profit potential.

Strictly speaking, the highlighted can be put under doubt. Standard deviation for 46 found blocks is about 0.5*sqrt(46) = 3.39. For 99.7% confidence interval it's 3*SD = 10.17, so the two values are within error. Need some more testing.

If these statistics are representative, then could we attribute them to any new functions added/omitted along with any new enhancements?

Confirming there looks to be some sort of memory leak in v6, on one server without AVX I just restarted the process as it was using 11GB memory and only ~25% of the allocated threads. The other server with AVX was using 8GB RAM and same story, using only ~25% of allocated threads.

After restarting the processes they're both mining with full thread utilisation and using < 200MB memory.

Sorry I should've mentioned I'm running v6 through wine on Ubuntu. I'll give it a go through Windows once I get some more memory into my Windows machine. I don't remember v4 having this problem, but I see v7 is out now so I'll try that first and see if I have the same problem.

Awesome, i'll give this a good ol' knock around.

I had another great idea for a feature.  If you could add a button press, that'd just output all current settings (maybe even in command line format), that'd be killer.  We could tweak it, then output a useable command line to setup those settings in a .bat instantly.

I'm running v7 in a i5-2500 @3.3GHz and the question is...

could someone tell me which is the best configuration for the program adjustable parameters? (or at least... which configuration do you prefer or seems to get better results?)

You must have it installed on your sysytem. I tried to install vc++ redistributable which has msvcr110.dll but somehow it only installs a msvcr110_clr0400.dll. Then I downloaded a msvcr110.dll and put in the directory but the miner couldn't start  "correctly".

Hi
Several users complained about some memory leaks in v5+ so finally I catch them and hopefully it's fixed in this minor update.
V7.1 64bit - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.1.zip
v7.1 64bit AVX - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.1-AVX.zip
Sorry no 32bit yet.  I still didn't managed to understand why the same code compiled for 32bit is crashing. Its something related to std::map  (if somebody has more experience in this territory).

Some minor features is also included:
-Printing the total share value that was submitted and confirmed by the pool
-The current settings can be printed by pressing the 's' key

Thanks for fixing the memory leak. I didn't really notice too much of a leak - after running it for 24 hours, it only consumed around 560MB of ram, which is really nothing - on a desktop - but I can see the implications of this leak on a VPS, seeing as you're heavily restricted in terms of resources available.

Been getting a little more than 1 XPM a day on an i7 @ 2.3 (laptop). I'm running 6 cores most of the day and 8 overnight.

Just checked on yPool and it's actually a little over 5 days - even worse!

(Supposedly) dedicated 8-core opteron box @ 'Server4You' for 90 bucks/month.  Signed up after a recommendation from another forum member (who was likely full of s*it just to pull referrals).

Stats look like:
SPH: 18.10 - Val/h 4.7566 - 4ch/h: 3299 - 5ch/h: 308 - 6ch/h: 32.48 - 7ch/h: 1.86 - PPS: 11137

Does that sound right for <0.2 XPM/day?

This is using jh v4 under wine, v6 was much worse than this.  

Needless to say I cancelled the server but still have it for another 25 days - $90 bucks wasted :( ah well live & learn! :)

So as you know primecoind crashes fairly frequently...  The really poor performance with jh v4 is because:

# crontab -l | grep prime
* * * * * /root/primecoind -server -daemon -gen

Oops.  

Good news is that while I've been looking at the poor stats from jh wondering why it's so slow the last 5 days, primecoind actually got a block :P

V4 didn't had the memory leak problem, but it's val/h calculation is outdated. The pool changed the share value calculation and this is reflected in v5+. So what you see in v4 as val/h in reality is slightly lower.

Hello my friend´s i read all the pages of the topic and i want to ask a few questions.
 I have an intel core i5 3210 m 2.5 ghz with turbo boost up to 3.1 ghz.
1 What is the best version of jhPrimeminer for my micro?
2 What is the best configuration for it?
3 Can i do solo mining o i got to mine in yPool?

I will apreciate answers. Please leave primecoin or bitcoin adress for thank you for your advices.
Thank´s for wrote the topic and thank´s for your time. See you soon and have a nice day.

Pd: I forgot to mention i use windows 7 ultimate 64 bits in my computer.

You can do solo mining and pool mining as well. For solo use the latest form the thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=255782.0 Solo mining with this hardware can be frustrating with the current difficulty. You may get nothing for a weak or so, depends on luck.
For mining on yPool you can use the jhPrimeminer v7.1 I've posted earlier in this thread. The default settings are used to give a relatively good performance, but for fine tuning for your system you will have to do your own tests, except if somebody here has the exact system and found a better configuration already. As a reference always use val/h and test runs should be at least a couple of hours.
The settings of jhPrimeminer are very similar to the primecoin client that is used for solo mining. You can learn about more on the above mentioned thread.

Im testing the v7.1 inside a ESXi Windows 2008 64bit VM (Running on a i7 920) w/ 4 cores assigned. However it seems that this wont produce any share at all. PPS values are ~15k. Anyone experiencing the same probs??

Heres an output example after leaving it running like 40 mins

That shows you've submitted 13 valid shares so it's doing something.
Try making a new worker and see if yPool shows the worker as active.

Actually no valid share was submitted. I just see a bug in the printing "Total/Valid Shares:" should be  13/0 and not 0/13.
Anyway there must be some misconfiguration there or maybe network problem or something. The Val/h is very low for 4CPU except if the VM resources are limited by the host.
Jabroni, can you see what are the error messages you had for each share submission?

@mumus: You should make your own "mumus' jhPrimeminer" thread, that way you can just update the main post with new releases instead of having people beg for them because they can't/won't read previous posts.

I'm in no way requesting it because I'm one of those lazy people.
Nope.
Not even a little.
Ok, maybe a little.

Network problem dont think so, ypool webpage is reachable.
Worker validates on startup fine and i dont see any disconnect messages
Tried setting a new worker and still wont get any share at all
ESXi is mine, and I see resources are avaialable (and I actually see full usage on the vsphere client when I run the jhprimeminer).

Right now im running it again and outputting the results to a text file to see what it gets... Ill update my post in bout 1 hr with the result of it

UPDATE

This was the reason

Code:
SHARE FOUND !!! (Th#: 3) --- DIFF: 6.709006 - val 0.100     >6
Invalid share
Reason: Share data time overflow

And after some googling found out the time was off on the esxi, and was causing the shares to be reject.... Still it isnt normal getting that number of shares for that CPU isnt it ?? 

My stats after a 40min run

Run a Netalyzr test. (http://n3.netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/)

Also, just because you can "see" a webpage doesn't mean you can access it with a different tool.  Seeing the page is via HTTP (port 80), mining it requires a different port.

If anyone is feeling in an adventurous mood; I've been working on a port of mumus version 6 for other systems than windows. So far I've managed to get it running on FreeBSD 9.2 and MacOSX. It seems to work but there will mostly like be bugs a plenty. I won't supply any binaries unless asked, as I'm new here. For all intents and purposes this isn't really a port yet as its mostly just a bunch of ifdefs around windows specific code. I've modified the keybinds (as the the arrow keys etc behave a little differently in terminals), other than that the code should be pretty much mint mumus V6. As for performance, you should perhaps expect some performance improvements compared to the wine version if you're on a 64 bit system.

Anyway, if you're interested you can grab the source code at:

<abandoned and deleted>

You need OpenSSL and LIBGMP to compile it, I've added the most common paths for libraries in my rudimentary makefile, but there will probably be cases where you need to change the LIBPATHS and/or INCLUDEPATHS variable(s). Basically, at this point you're lucky if you can get it running. For example I've been unsuccessful in compiling it on ubuntu.

To build:
download and install openssl (http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.1e.tar.gz) and gmp (http://ftp://ftp.gmplib.org/pub/gmp-5.1.2/gmp-5.1.2.tar.bz2) if you don't have them already
<abandoned and deleted>
cd jhPrimeminer
make
..watch a million warnings blow by

If you're lucky you'll have a binary named jhprimeminer in your current folder. Run it (same command line syntax as mumus v6 on windows).

Feedback is welcome.

40 minutes is really too short a time to test anything regarding this coin.  When I was checking the -s option, I'd let it run for 24 hours at a time and could still see +/- 20% over that time frame.  This isn't a simple hash you can count, it's not easy to look at it and go "Oh, this works better!" after 5-10 min.

I'm running an i7 laptop and 2 C2Quads and I'm getting between 74 and 92 shares per block with a combined VPH of ~13.

I've been mining on ypool for a couple weeks using jhPrimeminer on my i3 and got about 10 XPM.  I decided to try solo mining again (did VERY well the first week or two) using hp9 and in less than 12 hours I found a block for 10 XPM!  I know it's luck, but I think I'll try my luck some more! :)

I think that the "solo mining" here is refereed as "solo" where you run your wallet on 1 computer and others available connect to it, instead of running different wallets to all nodes you have.

The solo mining you give as answer is well know (or can be found great deal of examples).

And what for solo miner?

If anyone wants to try it out, I put the binary up for download. It's a 64bit binary. I'm running on opensuse, so I don't know about libraries working with this if you are on ubuntu-based systems. And just so you know, I don't know much about giving out binaries or what I'm doing. Just putting it there if someone wants to play around.

Hey! Thanks for your diff! Silly me had forgotten to remove the boost dependency in one file. I've made some changes to the makefile and source files so it should compile without those changes now *knock on wood*.


I've compiled a few binaries for linux and freebsd here: http:/goo.gl/kamnG2 they're all staticly linked so shouldn't require any extra libraries

I've compiled a bunch of binaries with various cpu optimizations for a few platforms here: http://(FORUM WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN CLICKING UNKNOWN LINKS!) goo.gl /kamnG2 they're all staticly linked so shouldn't require any extra libraries

Cool, so it seems this runs slower than the 7.1 version. Were you planning on making changes up to that revision? probably mumus will i guess.

Really? It's slower than 7.1 in 32 bit wine for you? What system and cpu do you use? I guess I could update it when I have the time

I was running the 64 bit wine one, but i am just going by what pps says and it does fluctuate a lot. This one was running around the 15k-20k range, and the 7.1 seemed to hover around 30k, but i really don't know much about how this works, so maybe that's invalid. Running on an AMD A6-3650.

I was running the 64 bit wine one, but i am just going by what pps says and it does fluctuate a lot. This one was running around the 15k-20k range, and the 7.1 seemed to hover around 30k, but i really don't know much about how this works, so maybe that's invalid. Running on an AMD A6-3650.

I see. Did you compile it yourself or use one of my binaries (which one)? I might remove the binaries since I didn't recompile gmp every time. I'd recommend compiling it yourself. :)

Are you using stock settings? I have a A6-3400m which actually is quite similar to your chip. Mine likes less than 1M sieve size. Trying to tune it.

Hi
Several users complained about some memory leaks in v5+ so finally I catch them and hopefully it's fixed in this minor update.
V7.1 64bit - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.1.zip
v7.1 64bit AVX - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.1-AVX.zip
Sorry no 32bit yet.  I still didn't managed to understand why the same code compiled for 32bit is crashing. Its something related to std::map  (if somebody has more experience in this territory).

Some minor features is also included:
-Printing the total share value that was submitted and confirmed by the pool
-The current settings can be printed by pressing the 's' key
good stuff mumu, cheers.

Wondering if there is a windows 32bit V7 or 7.1 yet? I want to be able to adjust my L1 cache size on my older laptop. Still running v6 on it. Im still playing with settings but I got my i5 2410M 2.3ghz running v7.1 a fairly consistent 13-15 val/h. Found 2 9-chains in the last 24 hours as well.

since v.7.1 im on a luck streak
24 hours with 4x 9-chain and 1x 10-chain ...
val ~ 70/h ... but it is still luck ...

best miner ever, though.

Nope, haven't been around much. Not sure what to change. I'll look into <1M sieve. Edit: I mean yes, I was using stock.

Im testing the v7.1 inside a ESXi Windows 2008 64bit VM (Running on a i7 920) w/ 4 cores assigned. However it seems that this wont produce any share at all. PPS values are ~15k. Anyone experiencing the same probs??

Heres an output example after leaving it running like 40 mins

Code:
---------------------------------------------------------------

And if i check on the ypool webpage the worker hasnt submitted a single valid share


v7.1 has submitted nothing but invalid shares for me (same errors etc).

Switched to v6 and instantly the problem is gone.

Hey! Thanks for your diff! Silly me had forgotten to remove the boost dependency in one file. I've made some changes to the makefile and source files so it should compile without those changes now *knock on wood*.


I've compiled a few binaries for linux and freebsd here: http:/(FORUM WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN CLICKING UNKNOWN LINKS!) goo.gl /kamnG2 they're all staticly linked so shouldn't require any extra libraries

Just compiled on ubuntu64 server, had to install libgmp-dev and change the lib file to
Quote
LIBS = -lgmp -lgmpxx -lcrypto -lssl -lpthread -lboost_system -lboost_timer -lboost_chrono
it compiled fine afterwards and its running around 20% faster than wine so far.

Odd, I just tried on a fresh ubuntu64 install and I didn't need to link boost to compile it (need to add -lrt though). Nice to hear that someone has gotten an improvement out of it anyway. :)

Edit: got rid of the manual -lrt

I tried my own compiled one and the a8-ss38 one you posted. Maybe it's because the wine64 runs pretty good compared to regular wine? Well, don't use me as a basis, cause I'm new to the primecoin mining, too. I don't know what's good and what's bad. :)
Maybe I need to compile my own version of libgpm. I'm just running the one the system came with.

Thanks, btw and good work. I'm sure a lot of people would love to run this in linux. Maybe when I get some xpm confirmed, I can tip you. :)

I have quite a few computers mining primecoin now - from Dual Core Intel chips to 3rd gen i5/i7's, and even older dual processor quad core intel servers.  I thought I would add a new AMD 8320 to the mix.  8 cores running at least at 3.5 ghz should work out fairly well, right?

Well my first problem is that the 7.1 avx version crashes.  No big deal, I can just run the regular version.  Problem 2 is that each time it finds a share, it gives the message Invalid Share - Invalid data time overflow.  Then I moved to the original one from ypool - same problem, but in addition to the data time overflow messages, some times I get other ones like duplicate share.  So I downgraded to the v6 version.  Although I can run both the AVX and normal versions of v6 - and my shares are actually accepted - my latest problem is that it seems VERY slow.  I am getting about 1,600-2,000 4 chains/hr.  My other computers are averaging 4,000 to 6,000 4 chains an hour.

The only setting I am using is the number of threads and it matches the processor cores - 8.  Is anyone else using this processor - FX-8320 and is having better luck than I am?  When my value per hour is around 2 and I have other computers that are over 20, something just doesn't seem right.

Im actually getting that cpu later on when I get a new mb. I dont know exactly what causes the crashes or invalid shares but I hope its fixed in v8. Id check out v5 with AVX back on page 10 and see if it runs faster.

Mine have been pretty good, I haven't done a good job of keeping track but to give you an idea I started with GMP v5 on a 2.3 GHertz i7 laptop (6 threads dedicated to mining) and have 4.28 in my balance and 2.05 in my unconfirmed. My guess is 1-1.5 XPM per day or so.

I'm so so about it. I got terribly unlucky waiting over 2 weeks for a block on the HP builds staying up to date on every release so I went to Ypool. I likely would have made more XPM solo mining but I just couldn't risk a GPU miner coming out and never having the same ability to make up for my lost time making no XPM with the three processors I have here. Tuning this miner is a bitch. I've gone through dozens of combinations and used every indicator at my disposal to test mining effectiveness. Nothing is set in stone and most of it is luck however I find anything that isn't a server, or high end processor likes a sieve size under 1000000. That's my experience. It's late so I probably made no sense.

I haven't tried these optimizations that much but I would say if you got no other alternative, try V4 posted here.

Try these, I found them effective with my optimizations -primes 100000 and -s 100000 with -d 8
But I am sticking with solo for now.  Hope that helps you out :]

I ran 7.1 all day today running on all eight threads without any lag issues, but in the past I've had problems with lag when running on all threads, which is why I usually run it with 6. I don't think it should surprise anyone that your computer lags when it's trying to run at max capacity.

That's just it though, I did not experience this slowdown with V3, V4, V5 or V6.  I never tried V7 but V7.1 near killed it.  I tried it on 3 different comps with the same result so I'm back to V6 for now.

You could use an utility called screen, it allows you to run a process in a virtual terminal that you can detach and attach to, and watch some process running in it. Like

Code:
screen jhprimeminer -o ypool.net -u blabla -p bla
then press CTRL+A+D when its running to detach, to reattach it again you can type screen -rd, that wont solve your piping problem (not sure why that isnt working), but you can attach to it at any point and watch the output at least. :)

You don't have AVX so I suggest 7.1 instead of the 7.1 AVX

Leave it on stock settings overnight. Don't forget to press C after your auto tune has stabilized (after about 20 min). Pressing C will auto tune your L1 Cache. Write the results down and be sure to include that all other settings were on stock.

Still about 2x speedup for v4 even after subtracting 5ch+ shares from 4ch.

If anyone is feeling in an adventurous mood; I've been working on a port of mumus version 6 for other systems than windows. So far I've managed to get it running on FreeBSD 9.2 and MacOSX. It seems to work but there will mostly like be bugs a plenty. I won't supply any binaries unless asked, as I'm new here. For all intents and purposes this isn't really a port yet as its mostly just a bunch of ifdefs around windows specific code. I've modified the keybinds (as the the arrow keys etc behave a little differently in terminals), other than that the code should be pretty much mint mumus V6. As for performance, you should perhaps expect some performance improvements compared to the wine version if you're on a 64 bit system.

Anyway, if you're interested you can grab the source code at:

https://github.com/erkmos/jhPrimeminer

You need OpenSSL and LIBGMP to compile it, I've added the most common paths for libraries in my rudimentary makefile, but there will probably be cases where you need to change the LIBPATHS and/or INCLUDEPATHS variable(s). Basically, at this point you're lucky if you can get it running. For example I've been unsuccessful in compiling it on ubuntu.

To build:
download and install openssl and libgmp if you don't have them already
git clone https://github.com/erkmos/jhPrimeminer (if you don't have git you can download a zipfile with the code from github)
cd jhPrimeminer
make
..watch a million warnings blow by

If you're lucky you'll have a binary named jhprimeminer in your current folder. Run it (same command line syntax as mumus v6 on windows).

Feedback is welcome.

It worked first time on Ubuntu 12.0.4. Nice one.

I'm using screen to run it in the background so I can log off and on without affecting it.

Thanks.

I have i7 3770k, so should i download the AVX version?

Haswell, Sandy Bridge, and Ivy Bridge should all support it along with x86 AMD processors from the FX line and Bulldozer and Piledriver.  I could be wrong so don't quote me on that. I'm literally too lazy to google it. So the same as you :P

With my Ivy Bridge I get a crash with the AVX build. My Sandy Bridge CPU works fine with the AVX build.

I have quite a few computers mining primecoin now - from Dual Core Intel chips to 3rd gen i5/i7's, and even older dual processor quad core intel servers.  I thought I would add a new AMD 8320 to the mix.  8 cores running at least at 3.5 ghz should work out fairly well, right?

Well my first problem is that the 7.1 avx version crashes.  No big deal, I can just run the regular version.  Problem 2 is that each time it finds a share, it gives the message Invalid Share - Invalid data time overflow.  Then I moved to the original one from ypool - same problem, but in addition to the data time overflow messages, some times I get other ones like duplicate share.  So I downgraded to the v6 version.  Although I can run both the AVX and normal versions of v6 - and my shares are actually accepted - my latest problem is that it seems VERY slow.  I am getting about 1,600-2,000 4 chains/hr.  My other computers are averaging 4,000 to 6,000 4 chains an hour.

The only setting I am using is the number of threads and it matches the processor cores - 8.  Is anyone else using this processor - FX-8320 and is having better luck than I am?  When my value per hour is around 2 and I have other computers that are over 20, something just doesn't seem right.

-Randy

I have the same problem on my A10-4600m.  The best version that I have found is V6 AVX.

Code:
Val/h 4.464 - PPS: 12620 - 4ch/h: 2168.17 - 5ch/h: 164.26 - 6ch/h: 14.46 - Last
4ch/h: 2244.95 - Last 5ch/h: 897.98

I'm actually getting about 25000PPS, but I can't get that performance with Pale Moon x64 running with a butt load of tabs.

I tweaked the heck out of of 7.1 AVX and hit 30000 PPS, but I couldn't get my 4ch/h to the same level that I get with V6 AVX.  With the same settings, V6 non-AVX is slower, so AVX is making a positive difference for me.

-s 200000 -d 16 -t 4 is my command line (I do only have 4 cores), and I must disable multiplier tuning right away, and set it to 73 to get this performance.  I can't manage anything better with this and Windows 7.  I wonder if my machine would run better with Windows 8 (since Windows 7 seems to be hitching all of the time since I downgraded???).  Also, I open up task manager and change the process priority to normal (setting it to above normal lags the hell out of everything and doesn't seem to produce a real increase in performance).

I wonder if we can compile a few versions that are optimized for AMD?  Would that make a difference?

Try adding -L/opt/local/lib to your LIBPATHS and -I/opt/local/include to INCLUDEPATHS variables in Makefile.

P.S. You should try Homebrew (http://brew.sh/) its much better than macports.

I have upgraded to this miner on all 3 of my rigs and am seeing a 10% increase in PPS across the board consistantly, My PPS doesnt seem to bounce around near as much, and Im finding 7 + 8 primechains seemingly 2-3x as often as with mumus 7.1

I can confirm the 10% increase in PPS with the three clients I switched out so far.  I can't comment on number of shares, or chains, as I did a poor job of tracking it beforehand.  rdebourbon is looking for feedback, so if anyone else runs this, let us know how it goes for you (rdebourbon has asked that you let it run at least 4 hours to be fair with the way things jump around --- and the luck factor).

This is an optimized version of Mumus 7.1 build with my sieve updates and a few other performance increases. Block rate should be as good as / better than Mumus. Use same as you would Mumus V7.1

Please send feedback via yPool chat/messages.

I also use this build. Works very well. My i7 got its first block on it in > a month with it.

Just switched over, but I can confirm an increased PPS of just under 10%. It is using a much lower Primorial Multiplier, and I got rid of a 2 million sieve value that I was manually putting in so it can use its autoadjust features. Will keep a close eye on it for value in YPool, but it looks like I'm finding many more shares so far, at least in the first few minutes.

You think it's better than solo?

I started solo mining with hp9 defaults today...I post back with my findings. I'll then try this miner to compare.

I solo mined a few days with HP8 and got nothing. I think that the issues with YPool were more that the miner wasn't optimized compared to the HPx line, and that that has been resolved with the miners in this thread. Still, I think that competition in mining is good, YPool is dangerously close to being able to 51% XPM, so if you have the power I'd say go for it.

v4 connected, but my PPS is down and Primorial Multiplier is way up. Open to any tweaking suggestions, though with the way that they changed the share values this might be a good thing.

rdebourbon's version still works, pool was just down for a minute while they changed things. I would love to see an 'unofficial' version that reads the share value from the server too :)

Can confirm, back on rdebourbon, but I'm concerned that it is the version they tweaked the share value for and will not be generating as good a return because it finds smaller primes. Any thoughts?

So far compared to 7.1 it's quite a bit more effective. Although right now I have my AMD Turion X2 and A6-3400m beating one of the top i3s ever made in the i3 3225.

Now time to compare to Ypool (if I can't see a trend across all 3 this will call for longer test periods).

Val/h and PPS are significantly lower for me when using the new Ypool provided miner as compared to the newest beta miner posted in this thread.


EDIT: By significantly lower I mean averaging 14.7 val/h with forum beta version and 0.53 val/h average with Ypool version over a now totaled 6 hour test period either way. This is with an ivy bridge i3 3225. I have not tested my two AMD mobile processors long enough on Ypool's new version to come to a conclusion.

I got the same error on OSX.

Try to install libgmp3-dev

I use MacPorts as my package manager and I have the 'gmp' (@5.0.5) installed already.

Try adding -L/opt/local/lib to your LIBPATHS and -I/opt/local/include to INCLUDEPATHS variables in Makefile.

P.S. You should try Homebrew (http://brew.sh/) its much better than macports.

So I just updated to the newest version (since this morning) and it compiled on the first try with some warnings.

My educated guess says no, for compatibility reasons. On the plus side, even if it does or doesn't have AVX support, I'm getting 2x my previous number of shares with this newer miner.

That is because the Ypool miner is calculating val/h with the new values, and this miner is using the old values. You would want to compare the number of 6+ ch that you find over a certain amount of time to figure out which is faster. I'm guessing jhPrimeMiner, but you can't just look at the val/h.

What settings do I change to increase the chance of getting 8+ size chains?
I am interested in this as well.

Thank you. My 6 ch is about 17 on Ypool miner and 31 on the beta with more 7 ch and 8 ch than the stock miner. It's a definitive win for the latest beta build (not Mumus but the other guy's build). Find it in the thread here people. Sorry I'm lazy and it's 3am here. Bed time.

Hi,
I am running jhprimeminer the precompiled linux version by bengtåke (http://goo.gl /kamnG2) or clintar (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/105316582/jhprimeminer.gz) (not trough wine!).
I am running it on my VPS Ubuntu 13.04 x64 linux server and I noticed a big difference in pps when:
 - I run it foreground = average 3000-4000 pps (EDITED)
 - or when is it running the background = average 1000-2000 pps (EDITED)

So if I leave my ssh session open and the jhprimeminer is running in foreground I get double speed.
But I can't have it open all the time...

I also tried to run it as a daemon (daemonize),
and also used renice commend to se the priority to -20 (maximum).
With no significant improvement.

Does anybody know why is this happening and if it is possible to run it at full speed even if it's in the background?


EDIT: I corrected the wrong pps for fg and bg (swapped them)

I don't understand. From what you say, it runs faster in the background.

I'm running a build from erkmos natively on ubunutu. I've only run it in the foreground, but if running in the back ground makes it faster, i'll do that. That said, I can't think of any reason that running in the background would be that much faster. Assuming the printing to the console is negligible.

I think you are confusing which is faster. At first it looks like you are saying background is faster, then the opposite. By background, do you mean in screen detached?


Title: Re: [XPM]unofficial jhPrimeminer thread
Post by: ikilled on August 20, 2013, 08:48:51 PM
Sorry,
the one in the background is mining slower than the one in the foreground.

So, for example if i run jhprimeminer in foreground in the terminal:
./jhprimeminer -o http://... -u user.1 -p pass
it will mine faster than if I run it in the background (with the & at the end):
./jhprimeminer -o http://... -u user.1 -p pass >> jhprimeminer.log &

Maybe I am wrong...
I'm basing my findings by looking at the jhprimeminer's output when running in the foreground (in the ssh client window while logged in)
and  running in the background (I redirect the output to a file >> jhprimeminer.log) and logging out of shell.

One weird thing I notices is that this log file "jhprimeminer.log" is updating very slowly.

v6.0 32bit - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-32bit.zip

Cabin
It is quite similar to the Mumus build but does not do the large divisor test anymore since others have said this part is buggy and wastes a bit of time. It also has the -h parameter which specifies what length of chain to search for (default 9 which is the case for all current miners) and it removes some unused fermat test branches and other calculations.
64 bit - https://www.dropbox.com/s/szayx15skhevv7x/jhPrimeminer.zip

rdebourbon
This is an optimized version of Mumus 7.1 build with my sieve updates and a few other performance increases. Block rate should be as good as / better than Mumus. Use same as you would Mumus V7.1

I am using the opportunity to ask everyone working on an unofficial build of jhPrimeminer to avoid having hardcoded share values. The server does send the share value (when a share is accepted) to the miner for a few weeks now. Take a look at this commit: https://github.com/jh000/jhPrimeminer/commit/3c93c1e68d05ebf41893306d179e0ccb869f8741
The share value can be retrieved in this function:
xptClient_processPacket_shareAck(xptClient_t* xptClient);

I might need to do a few more changes to the share values, maybe even make them dynamic. Having them hardcoded only adds confusion on the user side whenever the values are changed.

can someone message me with a list of all the miner / locations where to get it so i can update the front page  ;D

I updated my build with the latest share values:
11ch   100
10ch   80
9ch   16
8ch   1
7ch   0.03125
6ch   0.000976

The builds I know about are:

Mumus:
V7.1 64bit - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.1.zip
v7.1 64bit AVX - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v7.1-AVX.zip
v6.0 32bit - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1189851/jhPrimeminer-GMP-v6-32bit.zip

Cabin
It is quite similar to the Mumus build but does not do the large divisor test anymore since others have said this part is buggy and wastes a bit of time. It also has the -h parameter which specifies what length of chain to search for (default 9 which is the case for all current miners) and it removes some unused fermat test branches and other calculations.
64 bit - https://www.dropbox.com/s/szayx15skhevv7x/jhPrimeminer.zip

rdebourbon
This is an optimized version of Mumus 7.1 build with my sieve updates and a few other performance increases. Block rate should be as good as / better than Mumus. Use same as you would Mumus V7.1
64 bit - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zij7j205ucsmj3n/s3NKCVo8mL/jhPrimeMiner_RdBBeta3.zip


updated thanks for the info!

Thanks. I am trying your jhPrimeMiner_RdBBeta3.zip above. It still uses the old values for the chains found (i.e. 0.1 for 6chain, 1 for 7chain etc.).

Post by: clintar on August 21, 2013, 05:43:53 AM
Sorry,
the one in the background is mining slower than the one in the foreground.

So, for example if i run jhprimeminer in foreground in the terminal:
./jhprimeminer -o http://... -u user.1 -p pass
it will mine faster than if I run it in the background (with the & at the end):
./jhprimeminer -o http://... -u user.1 -p pass >> jhprimeminer.log &

Maybe I am wrong...
I'm basing my findings by looking at the jhprimeminer's output when running in the foreground (in the ssh client window while logged in)
and  running in the background (I redirect the output to a file >> jhprimeminer.log) and logging out of shell.

One weird thing I notices is that this log file "jhprimeminer.log" is updating very slowly.
It probably has something to do with the way it's outputting. I get weird characters on screen in my client, so it's probably having a hard time interacting with the terminal. You can try using screen instead of the &

Thanks, yep probably is because of the way how I am redirecting the output.

Now i forcibly disconnected the ssh sessinon (without quitting jhprimeminer and exit-ing) , leaving the jhprimeminer running.
I found out how to read output from any process running (from another ssh session) - with this command:
http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/58550/how-to-view-the-output-of-a-running-process-in-another-bash-session
Now I can see that the pps is normal - as it I would run it in the foreground. :)

I've heard that.. unfortunately I don't know why my build would be different. I've seen two versions of mpir.dll floating around... maybe try the dll from mumus's build?

Rdebourbon also removed the problematic fastdiv test so his build will be similar to mine too. My only other speed change is noticing CPrimalityTestParams.fFermatTest is always false, and so you can follow the code and eliminate function params and if branches that are never used.

Post by: gigawatt on August 21, 2013, 04:48:15 PM
Hi,
I am running jhprimeminer the precompiled linux version by bengtåke (http://goo.gl /kamnG2) or clintar (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/105316582/jhprimeminer.gz) (not trough wine!).
I am running it on my VPS Ubuntu 13.04 x64 linux server and I noticed a big difference in pps when:
 - I run it foreground = average 3000-4000 pps (EDITED)
 - or when is it running the background = average 1000-2000 pps (EDITED)

So if I leave my ssh session open and the jhprimeminer is running in foreground I get double speed.
But I can't have it open all the time...

I also tried to run it as a daemon (daemonize),
and also used renice commend to se the priority to -20 (maximum).
With no significant improvement.

Does anybody know why is this happening and if it is possible to run it at full speed even if it's in the background?


EDIT: I corrected the wrong pps for fg and bg (swapped them)

I ran into this problem when I was originally working with jhPrimeminer on a headless linux box.  The problem seems to be with wine: if you run a console application in the background and attempt to capture the output, the wineconsole process eats 50% of the CPU.

The only solutions I've come up with are 1) nohup the miner and never see the output or 2) output directly to screen and never disconnect.  :\


On an unrelated note, the reason you see so many extra characters in the log files (and the reason they're so hard to grep) are because of all the control characters.

I had to tell MalwareBytes to quit quarantining this, too. My guess is someone's using it in a botnet.

Someone popped into the ypool.net chat yesterday and was pretty pissed off that he had downloaded some 'loaded warez' that opened up a hidden miner for Primecoin.  Then on mcxNow I saw some fools daring each other to download a 'GPU Primecoin BETA miner' which was so obviously malware!  I would say that these two things are related.

So yeah, my guess is that all miners will soon be detected as a virus with all major AV vendors, thanks to the actions of f*cktard's who think that they can get rich out of mining with botnets (which consist of kids using mom and dad's laptop  -- THINK OF THE POWER!).

I wanted to let you know rdebourbon, but after using Beta 3.1, my performance plummeted (like, 0.6 Val/h in 8 hrs testing, all other chain values appeared normal vs beta 3 O_o) and I had to go back to Beta 3.  I know you said you only made display changes, but my cpu's performance can't possibility be attributed to bad luck with that kind of drop.  I changed it back to beta 3 and my performance immediately recovered.  I used the exact same .bat file on both setups.

I wanted to let you know rdebourbon, but after using Beta 3.1, my performance plummeted (like, 0.6 Val/h in 8 hrs testing, all other chain values appeared normal vs beta 3 O_o) and I had to go back to Beta 3.  I know you said you only made display changes, but my cpu's performance can't possibility be attributed to bad luck with that kind of drop.  I changed it back to beta 3 and my performance immediately recovered.  I used the exact same .bat file on both setups.

The pool changed share values. rdeBeta 3.1 fixed the share value display to reflect these yPool changes. For example 6 chain shares used to be worth .1 and now they are worth .00096

I've posted a new beta v3.1 that removes the hard coded share values. Share value now only reported on block summary.

I've also created a single dropbox folder for all my releases now - so only a single link to check:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq24hzo993afy9c/l7icP0KiuM

No performance difference to beta v3 only the display update.

Due to many requests I've done AVX and XP-x64 builds of 3.1.. These are both available in the same dropbox folder as before. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq24hzo993afy9c/l7icP0KiuM

I can't test the AVX build directly so do not know if its working properly.. XP-x64 should be good though.

Let me know if there's any issues..

Anyone know why this takes more CPU time when you nohup it?

I've got it running on two threads - when running normally, it uses 200% CPU, but when I nohup it with the exact same parameters it uses 300%.

Can't figure it out...

How is XP-x64 different from regular x64?  Is XP an instruction set?

I think I've figured out what is going on - the miner is constantly doing a readline() from the console for accepting user commands, if you detach the process this causes the CPU to spike massively. For increased performance and ease of use, I recommend ditching the readline() at runtime, just have the options settable only via command line args :)

I think the big difference is when running 32bit wine. Mine seemed to perform pretty well using wine64. Probably not as well as the linux version, but close.

Difficulty doesn't seem to have numerically changed that much in a coupe of weeks, but two weeks ago I mined 20 coins in a weekend solo. Last week zero. Yesterday switched to pool mining and so far got not even 0.5 XPM mined in 1.5 days!

Seems like tiny numerical changes in difficulty mean big big changes in computational effort required.

anyone else get -worse- performance on 64bit linux by compiling the sources yourself for linux? If i compile the source and run the linux ELF binary i get about 4500 pps, if I run version 7.1 (need to update so i get the right share value shown though) through 64-bit wine I get about 7200 pps.... although with the linux version it actually takes about 5 minutes to "auto-configure" the sieving while the windows version doesn't say anything about this to me, that is the configuring part, it does say that auto-config is on.

Just curious...

You should probably check 6, preferably 7+ chains per hour over a couple of hours for a descent comparison. Primes per second has been proven to be an inaccurate performance index numerous times ;)

You can also use 4 and 5 chains per hour to determine possibilities for higher chains.
For instance, one of my machines with an AMD Phenom II X4 910 pulls about 5195.19 4ch/h and 499.58 5ch/h.
Using the following maths, you can get a decent idea of higher chains:
Code:
5195.19 / 499.58 = 10.399 (truncated for ease)
6ch.h: 499.58 / 10.399 = 48.04 (41.90 is my real measurement)
7ch: 48.04 / 10.399 = 4.62 (3.95 is real number)
8ch: 4.62 / 10.399 = 0.44 (0.62 is real number)
and so on

I have seen twice that my newly found 8-chains share not showing in "share value" display on the upper right of the ypool's page. Both times the display responded to 6-chains and 7-chains like clockwork. So it was not a problem with network or pool's down time. The XPM column in the personal stat page didn't have any change more than 0.001 after the above 8-chains were found.  Not all 8-chains are missing. Often they do get counted.  (Because my 8-chain/h is less than 1, most times it is the 6-chain/7-chains that contribute to the XPM column. So once an 8-chain is found you can see the result in  the XPM column, if it gets counted.)

I am wondering what was happening. I am using one of the unofficial miners. Is it possible that the miner is secretly sending some of the more valuabe shares to another account?

More than likely what is happening (and you can verify this by keeping an eye on your miner's output) is that those shares end up invalid for some reason. Most often (for me) the cause of this is finding a share right as a block is solved, causing the share to become outdated.

The auto configure I think is messed up, and if you are using a version that fits it on start up, you might want to do a git pull in the directory and compile it again. He got rid of it auto tuning and it still accept your -c to manually set the L1CacheSize. I suggest checking what your cpu l1 data cache size per cpu is and use that for -c and see if it's better. Was much better for me.

What it looks like to me is that if you get a large chain, it doesn't register as a share, but makes subsequent shares worth more for a while

Seems to be a lot better than running under wine, at least the 64bit version. I only have access to a 32bit virtual machine atm that i compiled it on, and it didn't seem to perform very well, but try it out and let us know how it does. It's still rough. Keyboard input is weird. Have to type a letter and hit enter, and some don't map the same as the wine version. he'll be working on it tomorrow i think.

BTW, your 32bit version could not be run under wine.

There's been no other reports of these types of issues.. However, it must be noted that over the last 48hours jh00 has done several reboots to apply the beginnings of a new reward system - and each of those reboots has caused all miners to disconnect..

Rde, if you could make it easy to see in the miner how many shares were found and how many were submitted of each type: 6ch, 7ch, 8 ch. This would make it clear how bad the issue is or if it's even an issue. Also it would make it possible to compare it to the other builds.

My miner is cabin's build of your beta3 miner. I think another possibility for the missing shares is that somehow the server drops more shares for the larger chains. When I observed the missing 8-chains I don't see 6-chains and 7-chains missing so it was not like the server is down. I did see blocks being found at a high rate  by ypool.
It would be useful if the peronal stat page of ypool can show how many each kind of shares are found for every block for the last 10 blocks.

    The stats have been confusing a lot of people with the changes being made to the pool..

    The key to remember is that the block summary shows all chains found of the specified length irrespective of whether they were a valid share or not.

    In your example, the last block had 2 6ch. Determined by looking at total reward for last block.
    Also in your example assuming the 8ch and 7ch were all valid (36 shares), the remaining 130 shares would have to be 6ch.. Given the minimum pool difficulty is now 6.5 you'd expect about half the 6ch to be under difficulty.. Which is pretty much bang on in your example..

    I see nothing obviously wrong there, purely that the stats are not as clear and concise as they could be.. I've been trying to get feedback about which stats people actually want.. From what you've described a decent per block breakdown of chains/shares is more important than lifetime chain counts.. Is this sentiment shared by all?

    Hope that helps..

      ══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════
      New Block: 132649 - Diff: 9.789643 / 6.500000
      Total/Valid shares: [ 166 / 164 ]  -  Max diff: 8.045575
       6ch/h:    61.31 - 278 [ 48 / 60 / 170 ]
       7ch/h:     7.72 - 35 [ 6 / 4 / 25 ]
       8ch/h:     0.22 - 1 [ 0 / 1 / 0 ]
      Share Value submitted - Last Block/Total: 0.003904 / 2.343606
      Current Primorial Value: 47
      ══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

      Can you explain on this example?

      What hapeend with share 8ch?
      What 48 and 60 mean in 6 ch stats?
      Why total shares are only 166, if it's clear that 6ch+7ch+8ch is what more then 166?[/li][/list]

      Thank you!

      The stats have been confusing a lot of people with the changes being made to the pool..

      i personally dont want it to show 160 6ch if only 60 were accepted :B also on the next version can you put it like this Valid/Total rather than Total/Valid (because 46/50 makes more sense than 50/46 in my head :D)

      Thank you for your explanation, rdebourbon! Keep up the good work.

      Actually lifetime stats would be great, not per block. Something like this:
      6ch - found 120, accepted by pool 60
      7ch - found 11, accepted by pool 10
      8 ch - found 2, accepted by pool 1

      Not sure if this anything to do with the error but it does for me, using the linux/*nix sources built myself if I start doing a bunch of other stuff like compiling programs at the same time jhPrimeminer is running then this error starts and I have to restart jhPrimeminer to continue mining else it just stays at new Primorial Multiplier 2.

      Any chance of a basic API, perhaps one that outputs JSON? I'd like to build some sort of basic monitoring because at the moment the only way to check how a miners doing is by ssh'ing to the system and checking the output logs. It becomes somewhat tricky with so many miners!

      Also, I tried the Linux 64-bit rde beta 3 posted a page or two back and I see this error message:

      ./jhprimeminer: error while loading shared libraries: libgmpxx.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

      Am I missing a package or something? I'm on Ubuntu 64-bit.

      I get a lot of warnings (I could post the build log). and when I run the binary it won't submit valid shares.

      I havent tried it on 5, but i dont see why it shouldn't, provided you have the dependencies (which may well be named differently compared to centos 6).
      Expect LOTS of warnings, this is largely due to the code being ported from windows, I am still tidying it up.

      I read through the warnings and looked at the .cpp files in question, none of them seemed to be an issue. this is what a few google searches indicated to me.

      I tried to compile on Ubuntu last night, and that binary did not work either. I have all the dependencies otherwise the binary would not compile and execute right?

      on centOs I have compiled twice, the second time with shared openssl lib files I got from here: ftp://ftp.pca.dfn.de/pub/tools/net/openssl/source/openssl-1.0.1e.tar.gz (recommended by mikaelh) and with newer gmp.

      We are moving the Pool to a stronger server. For some people the website is already up. The pool port for miners is still down however. Most of the work has already be done so it cant be that long until everything will work as usual again.

      I need mumus v7.1 for 32bit windows (that can be run under linux wine).

      Anyone can provide me that version?

      newly compiled 32bit linux version from https://github.com/tandyuk/jhprimeminer

      his addresses to donate to/thank him are

      https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/105316582/jhprimeminerRDEBeta3-32.gz

      Here's a 64bit version, too

      https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/105316582/jhprimeminer-RDEbeta3.gz

      Seems to be a lot better than running under wine, at least the 64bit version. I only have access to a 32bit virtual machine atm that i compiled it on, and it didn't seem to perform very well, but try it out and let us know how it does. It's still rough. Keyboard input is weird. Have to type a letter and hit enter, and some don't map the same as the wine version. he'll be working on it tomorrow i think.

      Just to report that I was able to compile this code for Mac OS X by simply removing "-std=c++0x" from the Makefile. Works great here (28K PPS on my mac mini, while windows version under wine had only 9K PPS).

      Also commenting the lines that start the input thread in src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp solve the performance problem of running in the background (not sure if someone already did it, the thread is to long to read everything).

      So you believe, that all people who claim to have found blocks with Sunnys releases are liars?

      I bet 10 XPM that you didn't know how to use the wallet for mining and while the blockchain was loading you did "listtransactions" and saw a lot of orphans passing by (and disappearing without you noticing)

      I know well who he is, he had bad luck and wasn't smart enough to understand that's all it was.  I had several orphaned blocks during the time he was whining, but since *I* didn't have 9 in a row, he got pissy and cried scamcoin.  I noticed he's still mining though.   Hypocrits are SO fun to deal with ;)

      Yes. There is Tandy's Linux build. This is version 3.2 based on hp10 optimizations. Look at the previous page for the link.

      It works great on both of my Ubuntu VMs.

      Just put up a new build of my linux miner
      https://github.com/tandyuk/jhPrimeminer

      This version has some heavy changes (although not related to actual mining), so it needs thoroughly testing.
      I will be working on my web interface over the next few days, and releasing a simplified version for anyone who wants their miners reporting to their own server.

      Is mining primecoin still profitable compared to other alts?
      I'm solo mining and I have gotten 14 blocks in 20 days.  ~7xpm per day or ~.0280BTC at current exchange rate.  Not bad for CPU mining.

      Single cpu, right? 2500k?
      I might go back to solo if it is that good, but I really wanna try beeeer...
      No, I have 5 CPUs.  2400, 2500k, Q6600, Q8200 and i7 Q740 laptop.  The 2500k found 6 of the blocks, the 2400 3, the Q's 2 each and the laptop 1...(I just double checked and the laptop found a block this morning, so now 2)

      I've posted v3.3 of my miner today.  It can be downloaded from here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq24hzo993afy9c/l7icP0KiuM

      This is mainly a bug fix release. Fixes include:
      2/100% primorial decrement overflow
      Over aggressive thread watchdog
      Chain counters now only show chains which could be valid shares. Also changed to Valid/Total instead of Total/Valid as per many requests.
      Fixed a memory leak on new block detection.
      Removed original primorial multiplier adjuster that kept changing primorial even after a user chose to disable round sieve adjuster.
      BiTwin filter was incorrectly checking CC2 length instead of CC1 for odd length BiTwins.
      Fixed GetWork mode (currently disabled on yPool though).
      Added back a removed setting that actually helped some CPUs with cache / memory performance.

      Thanks for the update but ypool has just changed reward system again to give more weight to the shorter chains. One of the changes seems to be that the acceptable 6-chains start from 6.0 now.

      The new 3.3 miner appears to reject diff<6.5 6-chains, at least that is what the statistics say. Can you confirm it?

      Unfrtunate timing.

      edit: It seems that the miner is ineeded counting the diff<6.5 6-chains becuase the counter increases when say a 6.2 diff chain is found. I thought it didn't becuase 3.3 is now reporting about 50% less 6-chains/h than 3.2.

      Yes yPool have just changed share value again.. The miner is linked to pool difficulty so all 6ch are more valid. Val/hr also calculates based on the server responses for accepted shares so won't need tweaking..

      I will point out that a bug in 3.2 meant that it would target bitwins 1 less than target if target was odd.. So 3.2 was filtering on 8ch bitwins not 9ch.. This did return more candidates for testing and naturally resulted in more shares.. But is less optimal for blocks.. 3.3 will return less candidates (lower ACC) which will mean more SPS.. Better for finding blocks. Overtime I expect the income will be the same as 3.3 should have a better 9ch rate..

      Hope that helps..

      It might be a bit early to tell for sure, but it looks like the new 3.3 version might be paying out less at ypool.  I normally have 120-130 XPM in my unconfirmed - usually more towards 130, but I have been watching it gradually go down.  As of right now it is 118.  It may not be the best metric to use, but something to keep an eye on.  With the recent share value change, that is another wildcard in the equation.

      Thanks for feedback.. Because of the bitwin fix I would expect less lower shares with 3.3.. However it should have a better block rate.. It's a little hard to know for sure at the moment as not only have the share values changed as you pointed out, but yPool has been suffering a huge amount of orphaned blocks that has really been hurting payout..

      Please do keep me posted.

      You could go back to 3.2 to see if the rate goes back up again. But I think the change is mainly due to the new reward system. You probably were over-rewarded by ypool's previous reward system.

      Or run with -bttarget 8 as thats effectively what 3.2 was doing.. You may well get more shares but will reduce blocks..

      Do you mean v3.2 doesn't find 9-chains? I have found quite  a few 9s with it. Sometimes the miner didn't find 9s I just restart the miner to sort of fix it. Or is it that 3.2 finds unproportionally more 8s?

      The sieve is actually a combination of three filters .. A full length cc1 filter, a full length cc2 filter and bitwin filter.. All 3 are meant to target block length.. In 3.2 the bitwin filter has a bug that means odd length targets are filtered on the previous even target..

      Currently network difficulty is 9.. So 3.2 was filtering for 9ch cc1 & cc2, but the bitwin filter was filtering on 8ch bitwins not 9ch..

      As the length increases the number of potential candidates diminishes rapidly, meaning a faster sieve but a longer search.. Because yPool accepts any chain of at least 6ch, the "extra" bitwins that 3.2 returned would equal additional shares that 3.3 would not find because it would filter then out much earlier in the process..

      Both miners are heavily optimized, and will find 9ch and more.. But while 3.2 may have a higher share rate.. 3.3 has a higher block rate..

      Is there any way to check the current balance of your account on Beeeer, or do you just wait until you get paid out?
      You can see it on the payout pages.
      But it's not very convenient.

      Thanks. Even on the latest payout, my address is not there though? Where exactly am I supposed to see it?

      **EDIT: I get it now. Thanks for your help :)

      Sy on ppcointalk made this really cool stats page: http://xpm.syware.de/?address=0 Put your payout address in the URL.

      great  ;D

      Due to the issues some people have been having with my jsonrpc mod, I have made some changes to my repo.

      https://github.com/tandyuk/jhPrimeminer

      The master branch is now a plain fork of Rdebourbon's 3.3 for linux.
      This can be downloaded using "git clone https://github.com/tandyuk/jhPrimeminer.git"
      All the extra headers have been removed, and I have updated the readme and makefiles accordingly.

      My json rpc code has been moved to its own branch, and can be downloaded by instead using
      "git clone --branch jsonrpc https://github.com/tandyuk/jhPrimeminer.git"

      Stock settings are good, try compiling your own optimized binaries for linux first. Then worry about tuning the miner.
      Mikaelh's stock hp10 settings are rock solid, but more focused on findings blocks or 9-10 chains, so it won't be as good for pool mining where smaller chains count.

      Hi, i'm not sure if tandyuk follows this thread, but i'd like to suggest a small patch to his code. I had problem when reconnecting after my network went down. The code seems to wait for 30 secs before reconnecting only on the first try, then tries again indefinitely without waiting and thus consumes lots of machine resources needlessly, and never reconnects at all. Adding "Sleep(30*1000)" at the end of the reconnect loop, just as it's done in main() when it first connects, solved it (at least on Mac OSX, will try on windows/cygwin on monday, at work). The patch follows:

      Code:
      diff --git a/src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp b/src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp
      index f91e0ae..c66e314 100644
      --- a/src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp
      +++ b/src/primecoinMiner/main.cpp
      @@ -1442,6 +1442,8 @@
        workData.xptClient = xptClient_connect(&jsonRequestTarget, commandlineInput.numThreads);
        if( workData.xptClient )
        break;
      + std::cout << "Failed to reconnect, retry in 30 seconds" << std::endl;
      + Sleep(1000*30);
        }
        }
        // has the block data changed?

      Is there a way to incorporate that into the code?

      thanks in advance,
      Girino.

      There is some strange:
      Having two processors: AMD phenom 2 x6 1090t and AMD FX-8320. Phenom giving for 1/3 more shares (using 5 cores), than FX using 7 cores. Why? FX is so slow?
      No overheat. Tested on jhPrimeminer 3.3, 7.1 (with AVX for 8320). Result is the same.

      I've posted v3.3 of my miner today.  It can be downloaded from here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq24hzo993afy9c/l7icP0KiuM

      This is mainly a bug fix release. Fixes include:
      2/100% primorial decrement overflow
      Over aggressive thread watchdog
      Chain counters now only show chains which could be valid shares. Also changed to Valid/Total instead of Total/Valid as per many requests.
      Fixed a memory leak on new block detection.
      Removed original primorial multiplier adjuster that kept changing primorial even after a user chose to disable round sieve adjuster.
      BiTwin filter was incorrectly checking CC2 length instead of CC1 for odd length BiTwins.
      Fixed GetWork mode (currently disabled on yPool though).
      Added back a removed setting that actually helped some CPUs with cache / memory performance.

      these all appear to be for 64bit

      is there a miner for 32 bit systems?

      I have been out of the loop for about a month.

      I have the same question. Now there is also http://www.rpool.net/

      Are any of these any better then ypool? Why do people like them so much? Do you really mine more XPM then on ypool?

      I would never go back to ypool my XPM per day doubled overnight on beeeer .. Oh one day it tripled!

      Over 30 days on ypool I was lucky to get 2-3 XPM a day due to their aggressive weighting system, basicly if you dont hit 9 chains and above your payout is sh*t
      So I switched to beeeeer my XPM is now 6-7 XPM a day one lucky day I got 9!

      So screw you ypool!

      If you don't hit 9ch then your hardware is so weak that you find no blocks. If you find no blocks for the pool then why would somebody give you 6-7 XPMs/day for no value you bring? How can it work on beeeeer: you find no blocks and they give you 6-7 XPMs for that? Is beeeeer charity or what?

      In my case I've found 3 blocks for ypool since Sep 23. Ypool paid out about 20 XPM using their value system. It's about right, but still I've found more XPM then ypool paid out to me. I would actually prefer even more agressive values system, something like solo mining:

      found block: 1.0 value
      9ch, 8ch, 7ch, 6ch: 0 value.

      I know, I know:) I'm just trying to say that share value system on ypool is not something that I see beeeeer improved.

      But maybe beeeeer miner is faster then rdebourbond's 3.3 miner? Or maybe beeeeer pool just finds more blocks/CPU then ypool?

      I'm not saying beeeeer or rpool.net is bad, I just want to understand the reason why people prefer it over ypool.

      There are thousands of small miners. They find blocks just as fast as a miner who has thousands machines. If the pool under-pays the small miners, the small miners contribute their time to the block finders most of the time.

      "Small miner" argument doesn't really work here. Pool pays him like he's finding block every 1-2 days (6-7xpms/day) but in his words he rarely finds 9ch, so he doesn't really find blocks that often. It means pool hugely overpays him, probably out of pocket of people who find blocks.

      Ypool (at one point) was like soloing at diff=9.0. What is the point of joining a pool to solo?

      I never said I dont find blocks, I do! I have 2 FX8350 8 cores @ 4.8ghz 16 threads.. what I was saying if you dont hit 9 chains on ypool your payout is shit! anyway beer is implementing cprsb today so the system is changing maybe even better for everybody and the pool

      In the last few days I often have my jhPrimeminer (rdb3.3 x64) stop producing shares. YPool would claim those miners dead, and those miners only have a val/h line printed out every a few seconds. The miners seem disconnected. Anyone having similar problem, too?

      I actually had my Linux miner (Tandy's build) disconnect twice with the same issue, so I had to restart it. Other 5 miners seemed fine. I have both rde's 3.3 miners on Windows and Tandy's miners on Ubuntu.

      Still this doesn't seem very unusual for me. This happened before.

      It did happen to me before but only once in a several days. In the last two days all machines have it multiple times a day. I thought ypool was DDOS'ed or something. Even rdb3.2 has the problem now. The 3.2 is supposed to over-react in detecting disconnection and re-connecting the pool.

      The other interesting question in the topic of ypool vs beeeeer vs rpool.

      Are beeeeer or rpool miners any good? I know many people put a lot of work into what turned out to be rdebourbon's v3.3 miner. It has many optimizations and fine tuning so we mine more coins with the same CPU resources. How do other miners compare? Are they even in the same league?

      You have to get more than several 9-chains before you draw conclusion because ypool put much higher weights on 9-chains to calculate share values. Theoretically after a long time all pools should all give return dimilar to soloing minus pool fees.  Many people only mine one day or two with one machine and find they don't get paid much on ypool because they haven't got any 9-chains. Actually when they eventually find some 9-chains the numbers aren't that bad.

      That said, however after almost two month's mining on ypool  I got about 75% reward for the blocks I had found for the pool. That ratio is less than I expected.  I am going to mine on beeeeer.com for a month and compare results.

      I've posted v3.3 of my miner today.  It can be downloaded from here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq24hzo993afy9c/l7icP0KiuM

      This is mainly a bug fix release. Fixes include:
      2/100% primorial decrement overflow
      Over aggressive thread watchdog
      Chain counters now only show chains which could be valid shares. Also changed to Valid/Total instead of Total/Valid as per many requests.
      Fixed a memory leak on new block detection.
      Removed original primorial multiplier adjuster that kept changing primorial even after a user chose to disable round sieve adjuster.
      BiTwin filter was incorrectly checking CC2 length instead of CC1 for odd length BiTwins.
      Fixed GetWork mode (currently disabled on yPool though).
      Added back a removed setting that actually helped some CPUs with cache / memory performance.
      Sorry guys, but does this miner work with wine?
      I tryed it on centos 6 but I didn't manage to succeed in making it work.

      My miners die after several tens of minutes recently. I have tried rdb 4.0, 3.3, 3.2. The 3.3 and 3.2 used to run days without any problem.

      Also the rate of finding 7-chains has seemed to go down by a lot. I can't get good statistics because miners die too often.

      Thanks for pointing this out! I was unaware the beta had been promoted to default until I saw this the other day!

      Anyway, I've released v4.0F today, its got a handy little performance increase in it, as well as a good reduction in memory footprint (almost halved!). It also includes a potential bugfix to the GetBlockTemplate code submitted by JH00..

      Usage is same as other v4.0s although you should let the auto tune run again if updating to v4.0F. The only parameter of concern to most users now is -m - which is used to set the primorial. Set it to a value that finds you best number of long chains.. I default to 43, you may want 37/47/53/61/similar. Don't go below 29 IMO.

      As with v4.0E, this version creates a plain text Foundshares.log which captures details of any shares you find. If you feel generous and wish to share the file with me I would really appreciate it as it helps develop the miner .. Please feel free to inspect the file yourself to make sure it does not contain any sensitive data..

      Happy mining!

      EDIT: All my builds are available in the same dropbox as before: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq24hzo993afy9c/l7icP0KiuM

      Thanks for giving it a try - am somewhat surprised that you had a disconnect/crash/exit after ~20mins. Can you clarify what you mean by "over-often reconnect of V3.2"? Is this a case of needing "NOHUP"?

      Also, if you're interested, v4f can be used to solo off the wallet via GetBlockTemplate :) There may still be a scaling issue when trying to have hundreds of cores mine off a single wallet.. but for smaller setups it seems to work well..

      From the console,  it appears that v3.2 tries to reconnect  when no new blocks had been detected for a while.  This is very welcome when the miner hangs there spending 100% CPU and perhaps getting no new work which I am facing. But I guess many people felt the reconnection was too often -- it perhaps happened when there was no real disconnection, too -- especially the reconnection also came with a 30 seconds pause.  I remember that the v3.3 release note said one of the improvement was that the over-zealous reconnection feature was removed.  So I am hoping the feature is still available.

      I have tried to use a script to kill the miner automatically after an hour and restart it. As it turned out somehow the performance of the miner was severely affected. So that route was out.

      Also, if you're interested, v4f can be used to solo off the wallet via GetBlockTemplate :) There may still be a scaling issue when trying to have hundreds of cores mine off a single wallet.. but for smaller setups it seems to work well..

      Is there documentation to descrie how it is done?

      I'll look back over the 3.2/3.3 changes to refresh my memory, but I do not recall any specific reconnection amendments. The primary changes were with the thread watchdog which too often felt a thread had "died" even though it was actively processing.. If you were seeing loads of network related messages with 30sec messages, it implies you were being disconnected from the pool and very often - something that is also strange in its own right..  The underlying network code has not changed from v3.3 to v4.0, so you should be able to test on v3.3 and see if you get the messages you are refering too.

      As for the solo mining, you first need to enable the RPC server in the wallet, and setup all the RPC user/password/port/ipallow options to allow network RPC mining requests.. this thread should help with the principles behind doing that: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=323859.0

      Once that is working, start the miner with the following syntax (substituting values to match your setup)

      jhPrimeMiner.exe -o http://YourServer:rpcport -u rpcusername -p rpcpassword -xpm payoutAddress

      You can also add primorial / sieve size / primes arguments as per normal pool mining.. Personally, I'd only add the primorial -m option with your favourite primorial..

      Thanks for giving it a try - am somewhat surprised that you had a disconnect/crash/exit after ~20mins. Can you clarify what you mean by "over-often reconnect of V3.2"? Is this a case of needing "NOHUP"?

      From the console,  it appears that v3.2 tries to reconnect  when no new blocks had been detected for a while.  This is very welcome when the miner hangs there spending 100% CPU and perhaps getting no new work which I am facing.

      Do you mean v3.2? The message is terse, something like "xpt .... reconnect in 30 seconds".

      Is the block sent through the blockchain? Is there a traction fee?

      The error you are describing is definitely a network disconnect.. Something you shouldn't see very often .. As I said in last message, the networking code has not really changed between 3.3 & 4.0, so I would expect the same behaviour between the 2..

      Back to the original ~20mins exit/crash/issue - was the entire display frozen, or was it purely waiting for a block update to display? v4.0 does not include the updates between blocks - so if a long block is encountered it can appear "frozen".. although 20mins is a very long time to not get an update.. Can I ask you to try again, and if it appears frozen to press S to see if the app is still responsive?

      The block is mined into specified XPM wallet address exactly the same as if mined within wallet.. No traction fees incurred.

      I have compared with v4.0E and v3.3 and they had similar problems. The stranged thing was that before mid-October v3.3 was very stable. Now I can't even get v3.3 to work properly. I find much less 7-chains.

      I actually did it. What happened was that several hours after I had started the miner I found the 7-chain/h number reported by the last new-block message shown in the console to be 6.8, which was much higher that normal. Then I noticed that only 2 (two) 7-chains have been found. I expected much more. I pressed s and saw there have been 2 hours 43 minutes since the miner had been started. I looked at the block number in the last new-block message  and found the block number was more than 100 behind the latest block found on ypool. That definitely  proved that the miner had been stuck for a long time. And the 6.8 7c/h with 2 chains found means the miner found the last block at 60/6.8*2 =~ 20min . The log showed two 7 chains. The miner usually find about 40 6-chains and 4 7-chains when everything worked. hope this helps.

      Thats utterly bizarre.. I've had no such similar complaints from other users of v3.3 or v4.0.. Could it be something on your network interfering with the socket connections to/from the pool? ie do you have multiple miners behind a single NAT'd firewall that could be losing state?

      JH00 did say that the XPM protocol supported "ping" - I will look to enable this in the next version so we can try isolate the issue you are experiencing.. At this point, I have to be honest but I think its something external to the miner code..

      Surely something has changed. I don't think it is 4.0-speific. I have an old post in this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=257623.msg3328322#msg3328322 when 3.3 and 3.2 started to have problems. It could be something with my networks but I have no issue at all with any other applications. Beeeeer.org's miner worked well (except it had rejection rate of ~10% that everyone has, which could mask netowrk problems. But that miner never hangs). After my last post I started v3.3. Just now it's 9 hours later and I see it is dead -- the console has the Chains/H lines updating but no new-block message. ypool log shows that my miner stopped finding shares some hours ago.

      OK about 12 hours since I started the miner .. Just now I find the miner printing out many identical
      Code:
      Sieve/Test ratio: 0.0 / 0.0% - New PrimorialMultiplier: 2
      lines.
      From ypool block history the miner went into that state about three hours ago. I am impressed that it kept alive for 9 hours.

      Your strange problem came up in the yPool dev chat last night, and someone behind multiple layers of NAT (even ISP side) identified the issue as the same one they recently encountered! The fix for him was to implement the XPT ping function - which he kindly provided a source change for.. I'm in the process of reviewing the update, and once complete I will post a new build to my dropbox.

      I'll try post a notification here when the build is available, but in case I don't get a chance to do so please keep an eye on the dropbox.. I'm hopeful it will provide the fix to your networking issue..

      That is correct, it's the XPM wallet address you wish to mine into.

      Yes it means you can solo mine without the server generating. No need for gen=1, but you will need server=1 & rpc options.

      Currently no way to get collective stats on the group. There is potential for this being added though via tandyuks ongoing stats reporting work.

      OK it's been 9 hours and the 4.0-F2 is still alive.
      However I am getting less than 30% of 7-chains per hour. I used to get 3.8-4.5 7-chains/h on this i5 3210M laptop with 4 cores. Now I am getting 1.0. This performance problem started since early October on v3.3 and v3.2 (without any upgrading on the miner side).

      Great news. Go Tandy! I can't wait for 4.0 linux build.

      I'm still using 3.3 on my linux machines. If somebody wants to use it until 4.0 is ready please search this thread for instructions.

      I upgraded my Windows machines to 4.0 and it feels like it's noticably faster. I didn't compare stats, but my impression is that 4.0 finds definitely more coins.

      Thank you rde and Tandy for great work!

      Great news that it stays connected now..

      Advice for increasing shares:

      1. Try another primorial: The default is 43 - which works for some. I reduced it from my initial default of 61 due to some older CPUs struggling with the Fermat Testing for the larger primorial - but as you're on an i5 - I'd set it back to 61 via -m. Your MNPS will drop somewhat, and it will need to retune the sievesize/prime count for the new primorial, so dont start with a -s or -d as its likely to be less than optimal.

      2. The default at the moment is to retarget to 10, as we're above a predetermined threshold where some early maths suggested the chance of finding a suitable 9ch was less than a 10ch.. Personally I seem to be finding more blocks on target 10 - but it does hurt share counts. If you want a better val.hr reset target & bttarget back to 9. Mumus was experimenting with different target/bttarget values and did get some interesting results - so a split approach may be worth trying: target 10 bttarget 9 or vice versa.
      (NOTE: for those reading this that may be solo mining, I'd still recommend 10 over 9.. but YMMV!)

      So in summary, try launching the miner with this syntax for better val/hr on current difficulty:
      Code:
      jhPrimeMiner.exe -o http://ypool.net:10034 -u workername -p workerpass -m 61 -target 9 -bttarget 9

      As with previous releases of my miner, tandyuk is working on the port. Based on progress he made yesterday I'm hoping there will be some news later today..

      Any news on Tandy's linux build?

      OK 13 hours later not only the miner is still working but also that the 7-ch/h number has come back to about 70% of peak performance, the difference could well be mostly variance.
      Mining on ypool is an option for me again. Thanks. Sending some xpm your way as a small token.

      Yes, actually.. This is on the cards.. tandy now has write access to my repository on github, so I expect that as we go forward the two forks will merge into one..

      today ypool went down briefly and the miner was still running

      so there wasn't a connection and it was trying to reconnect, but still running and a few shares found but lost, said shares were not accepted by server or something like that.

      so i was wondering if I could make it so that it stops mining but tries to reconnect, seems a waste to use the power and gain nothing.  or were those shares found right as it lost connection?

      I am using jhPrimeminer on 64 bit machine and it was working fine until the crash of ypool.net

      Total pps is around 79000 all together. I ran for a week, but never found a block.

      You can try making a batch file and executing the miner like this:
      Code:
      cmd /c start /LOW "%0" jhPrimeminer.exe -o http://ypool........
      This will give the jhPrimeminer process low priority which means that in case other processes needs power they will get it. Originally the miner was written to have process/thread priority set to "BELOWNORMAL" but in some of the releases the developers may have changed this back to normal.
      You also can control the number of CPU cores a process is assigned to by using the "/affinity" parameter. The following example will set the miner run on core 0,1,4,5:
      Code:
      cmd /c start /affinity 0x33 jhPrimeminer.exe

      Good stuff, Thank you so much for taking the time to reply!
      Before you replied I tried setting "-t 1" and that seemed to reduce the load on all my cores to 10-30%.

      Is this also a workable solution? (Looks like it would still mine 1 XPM / Day with my 2500K)

      I actually prefer working with all cores, but taxing them all to a minimum, or whatever setting ensures the lifespan of my CPU.

      Anyway on this affinity setting "/affinity 0x33"
      How do I know what this means? How does this translate into Core: 0, 1, 4, 5
      How would I set it to only use Core 0 or Core 1 for example?

      I wouldn't worry about CPU lifespan. In my 20+ year working with computers I never saw a burned CPU. (and I was obsessed with overclocking).
      The number after /affinity parameters is a bitmask - every bit represents a CPU. Core 0 will be 0x1, Core 1 = 0x2, Core 1+2 = 0x3

      Those number aren't proven very useful. they are indicators of different steps of the mining process. 
      The Chain/day is more useful in telling how quick you could find 9-chains, a fraction (i.e. 1-difficulty) of which will be blocks. The value/h tells how this miner has been doing given the current reward policy -- higher means more reward from the pool.

      Isn't the pps the main speed indicator? I remember a hardware comparison list and i think it was sorted based on pps. Not sure though.

      No. It was a long time ago most people used pps, when no one understood the mining process much except Sunny King. these days cpd is used but different miners use slightly different definition of cpd.
      the only reliable indicator is how many XPM you mine perday, after mining for some days when many a few blocks are found. It can take weeks to do so. this number is tied to the pool performance if you are not soloing.

      I am using  rdb 4.0F2 with "-m 61 -target 9 -bttarget 9"

      One of the machine has this
      Code:
      12/02/13- xxxxxxx[edited] - Diff: 9.988664 / 6.750000
      Valid/Total shares: [ 3904 / 4209 ]  -  Best/Max diff: [ 10.000000 / 0.000000
      Share Value - Total/Per Hour/Last Block: [ 714.894592 / 1.985197 / 0.000000 ]
       6ch/h:     8.13 - 2926 [ 914 / 835 / 1177 ]
       7ch/h:     3.23 - 1162 [ 347 / 370 / 445 ]
       8ch/h:     0.34 - 122 [ 43 / 37 / 42 ]
       9ch/h:     0.06 - 20 [ 5 / 11 / 4 ]
      10ch/h:     0.00 - 0 [ 0 / 0 / 0 ]
      MNPS:181.44   PPS:15071        WPS:6.578    ACC:2291
      Current Primorial: 61 - Sieve Size: 1779500 - Prime Count: 43685

      Why there is a 10ch/h line while no 10-chains have been found, as indicated by [0/0/0] ? Why is the max diff 10.000000 ? Did the miner find a 10chain but somehow it wasn't valid?
      Is it related to "-target 9 -bttarget 9" option?


      Actually what is the three numbers in [a / b / c] anyway?

      Actually, it seems to do that everytime you find a block (10-chain). Well, it does for me.
      If you look at your pool account, you should see it as a "Found block" and receive the income accordingly.

      I didn''t see a new block found on the pool side.
      20 9-chains and no 10-chain. Is it just bad luch or the command line makes the miner only look for 9 chains?

      Those number aren't proven very useful. they are indicators of different steps of the mining process. 
      The Chain/day is more useful in telling how quick you could find 9-chains, a fraction (i.e. 1-difficulty) of which will be blocks. The value/h tells how this miner has been doing given the current reward policy -- higher means more reward from the pool.

      I mean is it possible for a miner that mines with 5k pps to actually mine more coins from a miner that mines with 10k pps?

      Check the details of the error message and see if a file mpir.dll is mentioned.
      Probably you have the wrong mpir.dll install for your cpu.

      You could try adding "-target 9 -bttarget 9" to your config, I've seen an increase with it (well, I think so, it's kinda hard to tell with this coin since there's no "hashrate" per se).
      I think it focuses your miner on finding 9-chains instead of 10 since you find a much greater deal of those than 10-chains, and they are still worth a lot.
      As for the multiple -m, not sure about this, I've not seen many people use that config before.

      The main problem is that you can't tell by the live stats when your miner does better.  :-\
      It seems that primes/ sec aren't a reliable measure.

      Indeed, "share value per hour" is better, but you find a few 9-chain or a 10-chain and it jumps quite higher, so while it's better it's still unreliable for performance measurement.

      In other words is it possible that I am using two XEON 5639 with 24 threads and it could actual not perform as well as a new generation XEON with less  threads. I have access to all kinds of processors and can post info I just know how to look for that info and what  part of it is useful.
      I can of course look at this information with the standard XPM wallet but not with JHPrimeminer. Once I start the batch file with these parameters I don't know how to gauge performance.

       chain/day makes assumption and different miners use slightly different difinition of cpd. Even with the same cpd you would get different return on different pools because their reward policies are different.  The best parameter is how many XPMs you make perdat on average.

      Some of the pools reward heavily the block finder. So in order to get a fair comparison for long term mining speed you would need to wait your miner to find a few blocks before drawing conclusion. That takes time unless you have several of the same machines to bundle together. Then you have parameter space to explore for each miner software.
       
      You need to be methodical and careful to do it right.

      First of thanks for the reply
      Ok this makes sense I am using Ypool. I can segment an account I guess and see how long it takes to get 1 XPM for each type of CPU as a baseline. It would at least provide a rough estimate.
      Right now I can say one server with Dual 5639 I get one XPM per 24 hour period. I think this is pretty decent but I don't have anything else to compare it to.

      yPool has a detection facility on the server side which automatically tries to determine your client side targeting option to prevent share abuse via a lower target.. I've noticed that occasionally this would reject shares if you had not sent "enough" higher length shares..

      As you're targeting 9 - and the network is now @ 10, the server side check is likely going to become more of a problem for you.. I'd discuss with jh00 if the problem persists.

      edit: typo

      That's correct, any chains higher than the share target encountered will be sent back to the server.. The key bit is the initial filtering phase.. Targeting 10 will filter out some "valid" 9 chains, but it will also increase sieving speed.. Overall your XPM mined should remain the same as everyone is affected in the same manner

      Does anyone have a working OSX binary and could upload it somewhere? I've got a quite a few macs here but am unable to compile.

      Just a heads up, you should really vet any binaries anyone offers you whether here or anywhere.

      That being said, I did not put any malicious code into this binary. It was compiled on OS X 10.8.5, I would assume it works on 10.9 also, but I haven't tested it.

      Here's a binary for OS X I compiled:

      http://69.67.252.135/jhPrimeminerOSX.zip (http://69.67.252.135/jhPrimeminerOSX.zip)

      Here is the method I used to compile it on OS X:

      Code:
      Install Xcode from Appstore
       
      Install Xcode Command Line tools (Open the Xcode application, go to the Preferences window, to the Downloads section, and click the Install button next to Command Line Tools)
       
      Install Macports (http://www.macports.org/install.php)

      From command line:

      sudo xcodebuild -license
       
      sudo port install openssl gmp git-core
       
      git clone https://github.com/tandyuk/jhPrimeminer.git
       
      cd jhPrimeminer
       
      nano Makefile  (remove “std=c++0x” from second line)
       
      make

      It will compile with about 3 million warnings, but it will compile. ;)

      Now I get many errors like this for 6- and 7-chains

      Code:
      Invalid share
      Reason: Share target too low

      Why is it? I am using rdebourbon 4.0F2  with command option -m 61 -target 9 -bttarget 9

      yPool has a detection facility on the server side which automatically tries to determine your client side targeting option to prevent share abuse via a lower target.. I've noticed that occasionally this would reject shares if you had not sent "enough" higher length shares..

      As you're targeting 9 - and the network is now @ 10, the server side check is likely going to become more of a problem for you.. I'd discuss with jh00 if the problem persists.

      All my miners are losing most 6 chains and  some 7 chains.  The output is like this -

      Valid/Total shares: [ 59 / 185 ]  -  Best/Max diff: [ 9.075941 / 0.000000 ]

      Is there anything we can do about share target too low?

      Is rdebourbon's version the only one that supports the -xpm switch? I've tried downloading it but his dropbox account appears to be temporarily locked down.

      I'm trying to set up a private pool where several machines mine from the same wallet. I've done the exact same thing to solo mine all sorts of scrypt coins, but I can't get primeminer to connect to my local wallet. I have the following parameters in the primecoin.conf:

      rpcuser=[myuser]
      rpcpassword=[mypw]
      rpcallowip=*
      rpcport=8332
      server=1

      And I'm running the following command with another version of prime miner:

      jhPrimeminer.exe -o [ip_of_wallet_machine]:8332 -u [myuser] -p [mypw] -xpm [mywalletaddress]

      I get an error message that the -xpm switch is unknown, or something to that effect. When I eliminate the -xpm, the program crashes as soon as I run it.

      I've read multiple posts where others have set this up with no problem, maybe its rdebourbon's version that will only solo mine like this? Does anyone have a copy of his latest they could throw up on another dropbox? Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

      1) which miner besides tadyuk´s one can be compiled on linux?

      2) are there any help for all the miner arguments available?

      3) does tadyuk´s miner supports the -target 9 -bttarget9 arguments? I can´see them in the help of the miner when i start he miner without any arguments.

      thanks and cheers,

      I'd feel bad if I didn't say something, but yPool is a total ripoff. I have access to a number of machines and have mined there as well as solo mined, and I made less than half with yPool than I did solo. Not sure if it is bad coding or an intentional ripoff, but if it makes any sense to try to solo, do that.

      I'm solo mining xpm with 10 computers using jhprimeminer -xpm option. However, all of them are connected to one server with Primecoin client.
      I just realized that the all the computers are solving the same blocks.
      New Block: 332966
      The numbers are all the same across all the computers, and I just got an orphan block.
      Are they solving different parts of that block, or are they solving the same thing redundantly, producing an orphan block? I hope it's the first case. Other wise, I'm just wasting the energy. :(

      One way make sure that all the miners has unique work is to specify different addresses in the -xpm parameter.

      About your first question, not sure. Depends on computer time also.
      You only need to use the getnewaddress. No need for separate accounts.

      After I generated new address with getnewaddress on the same account, I changed the address that comes after -xpm option for each computer. However, the number that comes after "New Block:" are still the same across the all the computers. Is each computer supposed to solve different block number?
      Also, I notice that it takes a long time (a day or more) for jhprimeminer to catch up to 10ch even 9ch every time I restart the process. Does it mean whenever I restart the process, I'm wasting time for jhprimeminer to catch up? Does jhprimeminer need to solve lower ch in order to get to higher ch, or is there a chance for jhprimeminer to solve 10ch before lower ch? .

      The block number should be the same for all miners (for everybody in the primecoin network). What is important is that the internal algorithm is working on a different hash to find prime chains.
      Regarding to your other questions I would suggest to read a little about the algorithm behind the miner from the document that was published by the creator of primecoin http://primecoin.org/static/primecoin-paper.pdf
      When the miner is running you are not wasting time. Lower ch (prime chain) is a byproduct of searching for the right chain length set by the network (difficulty).

      Is there any chance that versions from rdebourbon and tandyuk get merged so both windows and linux version get updated at the same time?

      Yes, actually.. This is on the cards.. tandy now has write access to my repository on github, so I expect that as we go forward the two forks will merge into one..

      Hi,
      I really wanted to run a private server, with a few Linux workers behind it. I got tired of waiting, so I decided to waste a few days of my holiday vacation, and become a merge monkey, I pulled down tandyuk's and rdebourbon's latest from git hub, and with the help of smartgit, and meld, I eventually got something that compiled.  I have been running it for about a week now, and it is fairly stable with the primecoin-qt wallet as a server, and has mined a few blocks. But it crashes with primecoind as a server.

      I consider this an alpha test version, the -xpm option is functional.

      There are some features that are not working, and there was the following commit, in tandyuk's master branch that I am now sure that I should have backed out:

      -------------------------------------------------------------
      commit 5a5f8f58534f1bbed0c2810268e799d6f23b3305
      Author: James Tandy <james@jamestandy.com>
      Date:   Sat Sep 14 23:56:30 2013 +0100

          Commit for other devs to take a look,
          
          I dont recommend trying to use this build for mining!
      --------------------------------------------------------------

      This one removed the automatic cache tuning from the linux version, among other things. I am thinking about re-doing the merge again without this commit.  (if I have the time )

      Guidance from tandyuk or rdebourbon would be welcome.

      Merges are on github  for access & review:

      https://github.com/jrovins/jhprimeminer

      Note: this is an experimental version, no binaries available, build from the source, and use at your own risk.

      How can I throttle the mining process to make my CPU still usable, let's say i want to dedicate 50% or 75% of its power to XPM mining.

      I have an Ivybridge i5. I know I can throttle the mining with "-t 3" or "-t 2" down to less threads, but is there a way to throttle the mining process equally on each thread?

      I used to use this back when I was doing distributed computing stuff.  Just tried it out on jhPrimeminer, and it works fine.

      When I want to control the CPU number and the priority of a process I use the following command:
      Code:
      cmd.exe /C start /affinity 0x1 /BELOWNORMAL jhPrimeminer
      In this example the process will run on 1 cpu with lower priority than normal. you can get more info by executing "start /?" in command prompt

      Or just open the task manager and change the process' priority there.

      In case anyone's wondering, unlike setting priority or limiting the number of threads, BES (http://mion.faireal.net/BES/) will actually limit the process CPU usage, so if I have 4 threads running on my 4-core i5, setting BES to limit 50% will cause the miner to consume 50% total CPU with all 4 threads, which will typically be 50% usage on each core.

      Something I noticed with the way I set my miners' process priorities (I'm using TaskInfo persistent priority) is that the miners' threads still run at priorities higher than 1 (like 3 or 4,) which causes a problem with certain software I'm running that have threads at priority 1 for some reason.  Instead of dedicating an entire core to this stupid software, I can just limit my miner by 2-5%, leaving enough for those priority 1 threads to fit in, while still giving most of the CPU cycles to the miner.

      How can I run AVX version with 7i 2700k (Sandy bridge AVX1.0)? Miner crashs all the time when I run the program ( jhPrimeminer-T17v8-AVX, jhPrimeminer-T17v2-AVX, jhPrimeminer-T16v2-AVX) Not AVX versions works fine. Windows 7 64x

      I actually did it. What happened was that several hours after I had started the miner I found the 7-chain/h number reported by the last new-block message shown in the console to be 6.8, which was much higher that normal. Then I noticed that only 2 (two) 7-chains have been found. I expected much more. I pressed s and saw there have been 2 hours 43 minutes since the miner had been started. I looked at the block number in the last new-block message  and found the block number was more than 100 behind the latest block found on ypool. That definitely  proved that the miner had been stuck for a long time. And the 6.8 7c/h with 2 chains found means the miner found the last block at 60/6.8*2 =~ 20min . The log showed two 7 chains. The miner usually find about 40 6-chains and 4 7-chains when everything worked. hope this helps.


      I am seeing something like this too,    After long times connected,  in my case ~ 4days  7hours,  I see the last block reported being 361823 yet Ypool is reporting data from 362213.
      The CPU is humming along at 100%   If I turn SPS messaging on I get  a steadily declining values per hour the pps and SPS seem to fluctuate,  the ACC also seem to fluctuate between 836 and 854, And NPS also appears random  I don't get any new blocks reporting being found,  no disconnection message.      I've been watching it like 40 minutes now.

      I've tried one  diagnostic test, I manually disconnected my wireless connection the miner doesn't seem to notice.   I reconnect,  the miner doesn't seem to notice that either.

      This isn't the first time I've seen this happen,  more like the third time,  I've been using JHprimeminer-T17 for a few weeks now.

      Thanks for any interest, or solutions.

      hello peeps
      im a freshmen (or noob whatever you prefer :P ) on XPM mining
      searching around this thread & some google search didnt enlight me at all,
      is there any guide for setup jhPrimeminer ?
      i mean im doing somethin very wrong
      i have the following cpu workers

      1x i7-980x
      2x amd opteron he 4171 (dual)
      1x Q6600

      with these setting
      -m 41 -m2 44 -m3 46 -m4 48 -target 9 -bttarget 9 -s 2000000 -c 512000

      tryed also -m 61 for the 980x

      and roughly i make 0,4-0,5 XPM per day

      is so hard to mine it ? or im doing something deadly wrong ??

      1. Im wondering that your connection isn't refused at all. Since Difficulty is at 10.4 now, it could happen that yPool detects your low target settings and refuses your shares. But if its not refused just leave it that way as it should generate more shares then.

      2. Im currently making ~6 Shares/hour average summarized on all my machines mining at yPool, which is ~1.2 XPM/day if my calculations are correct. You can test it using the formula:
      Code:
      XPM/Share  =
      (
       (
        (999/Difficulty²)*(1-Fee)
       )/Difficulty
      )/100
      With yPool-Fee currently being 0,03 and Difficulty as stated by yPool.

      Multiply the result with your total Shares/h and multiply that by 24(hours) again to get your XPM/Day.

      But considering the machines you stated, I think your values are pretty much the maximum you can get out of them.

      I just switched one of my XPM miners from jhprimeminer16v2-avx to 17v8-avx and noticed a decrease in PPS and share/hr.
      Used to sit around 1-2 sh/hr jumping up to 20s. a couple of times per week. Now it only puts out .01 sh/hr and it was never that low.

      All my other miners on 16v2-avx continue to put out better PPS and sh/hr.

      Anyone else experience this?

      https://mega.co.nz/#F!SMdjBZjA!ft7TBVIedEg820_3GFzEAQ Rdb's miner is the only one that works for private pools on Windows, correct?

      Warning to all miners using Rdebourbon's 4.0F2 miner - he has never released source code and its impossible to tell if some blocks found are being siphoned off to his xpm wallet address.


      While I know that this practice has been done by others I can definitively state that beta4 does nothing covert. I infact took a poll from users regarding the share logging (which is useful for dev purposes) and when faced with incredible negative reactions for any code that "phones home" I took the stance of logging a simple text file..

      With regards the source for "beta4" - I did say I would release it when complete, or if I found I was not getting enough time to work on it.. so as a show of good faith I have uploaded the beta4 source as a new branch to my GitHub. It can be found here -> https://github.com/rdebourbon/jhPrimeminer/tree/beta4

      The primary reason I was holding back on the release was the restructured sieve code seems to be far simpler to port to AVX/GPU (Both CUDA & OpenCL) and to be perfectly honest, I want (wanted) the accolade of being the guy who "cracked" GPU mining for XPM.. While I have part complete implementations of these versions (AVX & GPU), I have not released these yet as they do not currently build/work.

      My current situation personally is not yielding as much time to work on this project as I would like, so its better that others get a chance to review and improve on the beta4 code..

      Wow! If this would work, It could change the edge of the way primecoins are mined nowadays; single people could do this in a profitable way again, at least in the beginnings. ;)

      The question is, how powerfull is it? Have you already been able to perform single benchmarks or unit tests on it? Or is it too early to tell?

      You will have to pull it an build it yourself. ( Follow the instructions in the README file)

      Several folks have tried it solo, and there are no problems.
      I'ts still has some debug enabled, which will be cleaned up as soon as I have some time.

      The master branch was more like tandyuk's version, there is a second branch with the tuning threads re-enabled. They both work.

      A few weeks ago I was finding blocks about once evety 3 ot 4 days solo, but now since the difficulty increase, I haven't seen a block since 1/24/14 (6+ DAYS)

      @PeaMine, you need to install GMP dev package before trying to build. After installing the devel package, it need to be available either in /usr/local/include or /usr/include

      I have it installed and also tried compiling in /usr/include/ and had the same issue.

      actually, it seems that the Makefile is broken, since the miner uses mpir (that's a "fork" from GMP lib), and it contains all the needed sources for it to compile (openssl, etc). I'll try to fix that.

      EDIT: actually I don't know how to make it "linux proof". and I have no linux machine to test on... don't know if you need GMP or if mpir works... try removing the <gmpxx.h> and <gmp.h> lines inside "global.h" file

      Hi. I use jhPrimeminer-T18-AVX on 2 rigs. First one have Valid/Total Shares 48/48. Second one have Valid/Total Shares 96/103. So ~12% of shares is invalid:

      Quote
      Invalid share
      Reason: Share failed Primecoin's CheckPrimeProofOfWork()

      Second PC is 24h Prime95 stable.

      Does it mean, that jhPrimeminer triggers some kind of fault on my second PC?

      Hello Artemka, and welcom to the forums! :)

      At first I'd suggest you to keep the system running for a little more time. To get a usefull impression of what output you will receive you should leave it running at least for one week I'd say. I've started mining about 1 1/2 months ago and noticed an average pattern of Chain lenght decrease by 10 when incresing the length by 1.

      This means, If you do ~13 7-chains/h, you will propably make ~1,3 8-chains, 0,13 9-chains, 0,013 10-chains and so on. Based on my calculater and going out from a value of 13 7-chains/h, you would make around ~7,93 Shares/hour on the long term, based on yPool share values.

      This again would be ~114 USD or ~84 € per month based on current exchange rates per XPM and weighting the current difficulty of ~10,42.

      But that is just some calculation geekism right now. ;)

      I really recommend you to leave the system running for some time and recalculate the value again when you know your real output.

      Hey kozmos,

      as I already stated in my previous post, the production rate of the next higher chain level is reduced by factor 10-15 - based on personal observations. I'd expect you to have an average output rate of ~3 Shares/h => 72 shares/day => ~0,6 XPM per day atm, when running your miner continously.

      Tips on tweaking I can't provide, to be honest I wasn't able to establish a general pattern for setting up mining machines til now. Usually the default setup using primoral 61 and Sievesize 1M-1,5M always worked best for me.

      You are solo mining. There won't be any pay unless you hit a block, which these days will take a single computer several years I guess.
      You should join a pool if you want to get paid incrementally.

      Hey All,

      Just a quick update to let you know I've uploaded a new beta version 4.0G to the new mega.co.nz home for my miner (after dropbox suspended my public folder).

      New mega.co.nz home:
      https://mega.co.nz/#F!FA9jVJoC!avbe9C3WMdlroM8gbJG7Ew

      This new version should be between 10-15% faster than 4.0F and adds support for the upcoming mining version 2 (-miningVersion argument). In simple terms the new mining version requires the header hash to be a probable prime..

      I'll be posting updated source to GitHub later.

      Cheers!

      If your computer is from the 90's, that might be a good guess. On a current, fast PC it's closer to 3-4 weeks.

      @rde: Nice. Took you a while though. :P

      Yeah.. lets just say the past few months have been very busy for me personally.. :)

      BTW - I've put out another test version since the earlier message.. v4G2.. It should be about 3-5% faster than the plain v4G.. I've changed the default sieve size as an experiment in this build.. and it should not be changed from this default.. so the only tunable args are primorial & prime count..

      Same mega.co.nz folder as before..

      Happy mining!

      21 March 2014 - I've released a new beta of v4.0 - Build H4. Same mega.co.nz folder as before:
      https://mega.co.nz/#F!FA9jVJoC!avbe9C3WMdlroM8gbJG7Ew (https://mega.co.nz/#F!FA9jVJoC!avbe9C3WMdlroM8gbJG7Ew)

      IMPORTANT NOTE:
      ===============
      This is a binary only BETA release and includes a fixed donation/dev fee of 2%.
      This donation applies if pool mining on yPool or solo mining.
      The final release (ie when source pushed to GitHub) will make this donation optional.

      BREAKING CHANGES:
      ================T=
      I have removed the -target and -bttarget options as they no longer provide much benefit.

      I have removed the -tune option - see below.

      I have updated the way the -d option works. If not specified on the command line a value is chosen to match your selected
         primorial. If a value is specified that value will be used.
         
      GENERAL NOTES:
      ==============
      I have completely disabled the auto tuner until further notice. I'm working on a couple of new ideas that will hopefully
         provide a faster and more accurate auto tune for both pool & solo. (The old auto tune was really only applicable to solo).
      The latest updates have been largely focused at pool mining performance, so the solo performance may be slightly impacted
         compared to previous builds. I am intending to return to solo performance as soon as the current pool performance issues
         are resolved and the current code has been ported to linux. Currently in my tests this build is 40-50% faster on raw MNPS
         than other pool miners, and pool Val/Hr is almost double compared to previous versions of my V4.0.
         
      Simple manual optimization process:
      1. *DO NOT* specify a primes count.
      2. Start miner with default sieve size and your desired primorial.
      3. If solo mining adjust primes up/down by 1000 (left arrow/right arrow) until the ACC value per block
         does not differ by more than 10 when adding/subtracting 1000primes. (As an idea on my dev PC, Primorial 61 uses
         around 48000 primes on solo)
      4. Adjust sieve size (-/+) to largest value with a WPS value just exceeding 20. If your PC is slow and you cannot exceed
         20 WPS with a sieve size greater than 500000 then target 10 WPS.
      5. Record primes if solo mining (rounded to nearest thousand)
      6. Record Sieve size (rounded up to nearest multiple of 16384)
      7. Quit miner, adjust launch parameters as needed and restart.

      As always if you have any questions/comments/issues please do not hesitate to contact me.

      Happy Mining!!

      Hiya,
          Thanks!! What's the % improvement of 4.0 over 3.3? And any Linux version ?

      Hiya,
          Thanks!! What's the % improvement of 4.0 over 3.3? And any Linux version ?

      I stopped benchmarking against 3.3 quite early on (4.0d) as other miners had moved on and 3.3 was not as quick.As a result I can't give an accurate answer. based on other miners derived from 3.3 I'd estimate v4.0h to be 50% faster on MNPS. It's hard to know val/hr increase as v4 had been focused more on solo/block solving till recently. I can definitely say it is better all round though.

      I'm porting to Linux at the moment and should have a release soon.  Source for v4f is on my github.

      Good evening guys, well lol i'm a newbie and I need some help with this.

      I'm using Intel 3930K @ 4.4GHZ for XMP mining and I wonder if my following results using jhPrimeminer are fine or need to be tweaked?

      http://i1293.photobucket.com/albums/b595/Kozmos81/FADY-PC/2014-02-11_19-52-09_zps3bc583b1.png



      Plus, how to know my daily XPM production rate from that image? :-\


      Hey kozmos,

      as I already stated in my previous post, the production rate of the next higher chain level is reduced by factor 10-15 - based on personal observations. I'd expect you to have an average output rate of ~3 Shares/h => 72 shares/day => ~0,6 XPM per day atm, when running your miner continously.

      Tips on tweaking I can't provide, to be honest I wasn't able to establish a general pattern for setting up mining machines til now. Usually the default setup using primoral 61 and Sievesize 1M-1,5M always worked best for me.

      Hello admiral and thx a lot for your answer :) I will read your comments in this topic so I can understand the way of how XPM is working



      can you help me with my scheenshot? How much XPM i can get per day?

      Just a quick update I've got an initial port of v4H running on a Linux virtual machine. . Obviously this is not an ideal benchmarking environment but the speed per thread seems to be at least on a par with my native windows miner on same physical machine. . Chain rates are as expected and I've even been very lucky and found a couple of 9ch and a 10ch.. For some this may seem ordinary,  but my dev pc has a normal 9ch rate of 1/day. .

      Any way I've got a tiny bit of cosmetic clean up to do and will be putting out binaries for more public testing soon. I'm currently using gmp 5, so there may be some easy  performance gains to be realised by switching to gmp 6..That's next after the resolution of the auto tuner. .

      Happy mining!

      I've posted jhPrimeMiner_RdBBeta4.0I_Linux.tar.gz to my mega.co.nz folder https://mega.co.nz/#F!FA9jVJoC!avbe9C3WMdlroM8gbJG7Ew (https://mega.co.nz/#F!FA9jVJoC!avbe9C3WMdlroM8gbJG7Ew)

      This tar.gz archive has a few different versions of the miner compiled and ready for testing - use the one appropriate for your CPU.. As with V4H for Windows, this is still a BETA binary release only. Source code will be posted to Github in the next week or so depending on my schedule..

      Please let me know if you have any issues with the miner!

      Happy Mining!

      Progress report 31March2014.
      1 bug found and fixed in Linux port.  New build v4Ib available in mega folder.

      Bug only affected pool mining and was an issue with reconnecting when pool servers restarted.

      Thanks to all the beta testers so far.

      New BETA v4.0J (Win & Linux)
      ======================

      I've posted a new build of my miner this morning to the mega.co.nz folder. This is mainly an update for linux compatibility issues, but does include a cache optimisation that yields a neat little boost in raw sieve speed (~5-10%).

      I will be posting a trial build of v4J with GMP6 statically linked later today, but this is very much a trial build.. I have not run extensive tests with the GMP6 - although on my test PC it does appear to work as expected.

      Happy Mining!

      I don't see a readme in your miner.
      At a minimum you'd have:
      JhPrimeMiner.exe -o http://ypool.net:10034  -u yourworker -p yourpassword

      If you're using the computer for other things you may want to reduce the thread count. To do this add -t x where x is less than total cores in computer.

      If Wps is very high > 100 consider a bigger sieve size.  Default size is approximately 2 Mill.  If Wps < 30 consider smaller sieve size.  Try keep sieve Size a multiple of 16384. Change sieve size with -s xxxxx

      Finally use as high a  primorial as gives a decent mnps. I recommend 61 its been very lucky for me.  Change primorial with -m xx

      That's it really. .

      Hi there,

      I have set the sieve to 16 Million (16384000) to get my WPS down and this works for the first stat.

      However, it seems to reset and my WPS jumps back to 177.

      Has anyone else seen this problem ?

      Hi there,

      I've seen nearly the same problem.

      with sieve size 16384000 the smallest WPS i can reach is 211.

      With the new updates you should no longer aim for WPS 20. Just use the default sieve and increase it if you wish. There is also an auto-tune option enabled by default which will run for like 4 hours

      Hi guys,

      New xpm  miner here :)

      And a bit confused !

      I use a Core i5 2500K processor for mining, do i use jhPrimeminer_RdBBeta4.0J_Win_SSE_Test2 or jhPrimeminer_RdBBeta4.0J_Win_AVX_Test2 for my processor ?

      Is there anything specific i need to add tot my batch file ?

      Thanks,

      You should definitely use the AVX version. As for the .bat file, after the .exe you should have something like -o http://relay.ypool.net -u yourworkernae -p x -m 61 -t numbersofthreads

      Hey All,

      Just a quick update to let you know I've uploaded a new beta version 4.0G to the new mega.co.nz home for my miner (after dropbox suspended my public folder).

      New mega.co.nz home:
      https://mega.co.nz/#F!FA9jVJoC!avbe9C3WMdlroM8gbJG7Ew

      This new version should be between 10-15% faster than 4.0F and adds support for the upcoming mining version 2 (-miningVersion argument). In simple terms the new mining version requires the header hash to be a probable prime..

      I'll be posting updated source to GitHub later.

      Cheers!
      rdebourbon, Hi!
      Could you please explain why AMD FX-4300 @ 4.3GHz (-t 4, MNPS=280) slower then AMD Athlon II 280 @ 3.6Ghz (-t 2, MNPS=297). Tried on jhPrimeminer_RdBBeta4.0J_x64 for Athlon;
      jhPrimeminer_RdBBeta4.0J_x64-AVX and jhPrimeminer_RdBBeta4.0J_x64 for FX-4300

      Thank you in advance.

      Without doing more exhaustive tests I couldn't say for certain, but I suspect the issue will be on-die cache differences within the CPUs..

      A quick look at CPU-World (I didn't go any further so data could be wrong) indicates that despite the higher core count, the L1 data cache is smaller (half the size!) on the FX-4300 compared to the Athlon II..

      FX-4300:
      2 x 64 KB 2-way set associative shared instruction caches
      4 x 16 KB 4-way set associative data caches

      Athlon II 280:
      2 x 64 KB 2-way set associative instruction caches
      2 x 64 KB 2-way set associative data caches

      If this is true, it will result in a higher L1 miss ratio - which could account for the performance difference. Having said all that, I'd be a bit surprised if that was the sole reason for a such a drastic difference in performance..

      Hi,

      I'm testing this using my laptop with an Intel CORE i7 vPro, whatever that means. I'm using jhPrimeminer_RdB v4.0J (Linux), the AVX version.
      I tried a few settings, and I read the optimization instructions, but I'm not sure I understood everything correctly. These were some of my results:

      MNPS:998.96   PPS:14106        WPS:143.802  ACC:98     
      Current Primorial: 43 - Sieve Size: 2097152 - Prime Count: Variable

      MNPS:899.89   PPS:12706        WPS:129.540  ACC:98     
      Current Primorial: 43 - Sieve Size: 262144 - Prime Count: Variable

      MNPS:917.90   PPS:21042        WPS:132.134  ACC:159     
      Current Primorial: 61 - Sieve Size: 2597152 - Prime Count: Variable

      MNPS:947.95   PPS:13448        WPS:136.458  ACC:98     
      Current Primorial: 43 - Sieve Size: 597152 - Prime Count: Variable

      MNPS:784.21   PPS:18014        WPS:112.889  ACC:159     
      Current Primorial: 61 - Sieve Size: 297152 - Prime Count: Variable

      MNPS:776.80   PPS:18027        WPS:111.821  ACC:161     
      Current Primorial: 61 - Sieve Size: 262144 - Prime Count: Variable

      MNPS:1011.78  PPS:14306        WPS:145.648  ACC:98     
      Current Primorial: 43 - Sieve Size: 2097152 - Prime Count: Variable

      This last setting is just running the program on defaults. The idea is to maximize the MNPS, right? So far it seems that no tweaking yields the best results. Is this correct?
      I'd appreciate suggestions for improvement :)

      How to calculate potential average yield from solo mining using the client stats?
      Also, how do you compare the performance of this client to the official wallet mining ability?

      Thanks.
