Title: Claymore's CryptoNote GPU Miner v9.7
Post by: Claymore on June 04, 2014, 03:24:35 PM
Claymore's CryptoNight GPU Miner.
=========================

CPU version is here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=647251.0 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=647251.0)

Current version: 9.7:

- reduced devfee, it's 2% now if you use secure SSL/TLS connection, currently miningpoolhub pool supports encrypted connections, see Readme for samples.
- added "allpools" option, use it if your pool requires Username.Worker instead of wallet address, or if you mine some fork of Monero.
- now all options can be stored in "config.txt" file.
- changed format of "pools.txt", now you can specify own settings for every failover pool. Since format was changed, failover pools file was renamed to "epools.txt".
- now "r" key reloads failover pools file, "s" shows current statistics, with digit keys you can disable/enable GPUs.
- improved support for EthMan, now all commands are supported.
- now remote management is working in read-only mode by default.
- added SSL/TLS encryption support for better security, see "-o" option description in Readme file for details.
- improved "-tt" and "-r" options.
- added "-fanmin", "-fanmax", "-tstop", "-powlim", "-cvddc", "-mvddc" options.
- added HTTP support for remote port.
- added "-retrydelay" option.
- added "-ftime" option.
- a lot of minor improvements.

This is POOL version.

Catalyst 15.12 is required for best performance and compatibility.

Set "GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT" environment variable as "100".

For multi-GPU systems, set Virtual Memory size in Windows at least 16 GB:
"Computer Properties / Advanced System Settings / Performance / Advanced / Virtual Memory".

This miner is free-to-use, however, current developer fee is 2% if you use secure SSL/TLS connection to mining pool, miner mines 49 rounds for you and 1 round for developer.
If you use unsecure connection to mining pool, current developer fee is 2.5%, miner mines 39 rounds for you and 1 round for developer.
If you don't agree with the dev fee - don't use this miner, or use "-nofee" option.
Attempts to cheat and remove dev fee will cause a bit slower mining speed (same as "-nofee 1") though miner will show same hashrate.

This version is for recent AMD videocards only: 7xxx and 2xx, also 6xxx and 5xxx. No nVidia support.
This version is for Windows x64 only. No 32-bit support.
Linux version also requires AMD APP SDK installed. Linux version has been tested in Cent 6.5 and Ubuntu 14.04.
Miner has built-in GPU overclocking features and temperature management, also it supports remote monitoring/management.



COMMAND LINE OPTIONS:

-o    pool address. Both HTTP and Stratum protocol are supported. You can specify several "-o" parameters to use several pools, or use "epools.txt" file, or use both.
   Miner also supports Stratum with SSL/TLS encryption for all data between miner and pool (if pool supports encryption), it significantly improves security.
   To enable encryption, use "ssl://" or "stratum+ssl://" prefix (or "tls" instead of "ssl"), for example: "-o ssl://us-east.cryptonight-hub.miningpoolhub.com:20580"

-u    your wallet address. If your pool requires Username.Worker instead of wallet address, add "-allpools 1" option if miner shows an error.

-p    password, use "x" as password.

-allpools Specify "-allpools 1" if miner does not want to mine on specified pool (because it cannot mine devfee on that pool), but you agree to use some default pools for devfee mining.
   Note that if devfee mining pools will stop, entire mining will be stopped too.

-di    GPU indexes, default is all available GPUs. For example, if you have four GPUs "-di 02" will enable only first and third GPUs (#0 and #2).
   You can also turn on/off cards in runtime with "0"..."9" keys and check current statistics with "s" key.

-a   Select algorithm:
   "-a 0" (default) means autoselection.
   "-a 1" fastest mining mode for 290/290x and 270/270x cards.
   "-a 2" low power consumption mode for 290/290x cards. A bit less speed (1%) but less power consumption (10-15%).
   "-a 3" fastest mining for old cards (6xxx and 5xxx).
   "-a 4" fastest mining for recent cards (280x, 270/270x etc).
   You can also specify mode for every card separately, for example, "-a 1234".
   It is very important for good mining speed to select correct "-a" and "-h" values for your cards.
   For old cards 5xxx and 6xxx use "-a 3" mode only, otherwise you can get "LowDifficultyShare" errors from pool.

-ftime   failover main pool switch time, in minutes, see "Failover" section below. Default value is 30 minutes, set zero if there is no main pool.

-wd    watchdog option. Use "-wd 1" to enable watchdog, miner will be closed if any thread is not responding for 1 minute or OpenCL call failed,
   so you can restart it from some script if some GPU does not respond.

-ee    close miner if no more pools are available in the list. By default, miner tries all pools one by one, after last pool it tries first pool again and so on.
Use "-ee 1" to close miner when it tried all pools, so you can restart it from some script and do some additional actions related to internet connectins if necessary.

-retrydelay   delay, in seconds, between connection attempts. Default values is "20". Specify "-retrydelay -1" if you don't need reconnection, in this mode miner will exit if connection is lost.

-dbg   debug log and messages. "-dbg 0" (default) - create log file but don't show debug messages.
   "-dbg 1" - create log file and show debug messages. "-dbg -1" - no log file and no debug messages.

-r   Restart miner mode. "-r 0" (default) - restart miner if something wrong with GPU. "-r -1" - disable automatic restarting. -r >20 - restart miner if something
   wrong with GPU or by timer. For example, "-r 60" - restart miner every hour or when some GPU failed.
   "-r 1" closes miner and execute "reboot.bat" file ("reboot.bash" or "reboot.sh" for Linux version) in the miner directory (if exists) if some GPU failed.
   So you can create "reboot.bat" file and perform some actions, for example, reboot system if you put this line there: "shutdown /r /t 5 /f".

-li   Low intensity mode. Specify "-li 1" if you don't want Windows to freeze.

-nofee: set "1" to cancel my developer fee at all. In this mode some recent optimizations are disabled so mining speed will be slower by about 5%.
   By enabling this mode, I will lose 100% of my earnings, you will lose only 2.5% of your earnings.
   So you have a choice: "fastest miner" or "completely free miner but a bit slower".
   If you want both "fastest" and "completely free" you should find some other miner that meets your requirements, just don't use this miner instead of claiming that I need
   to cancel/reduce developer fee, saying that 2.5% developer fee is too much for this miner and so on.

-tt   set target GPU temperature. For example, "-tt 80" means 80C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-tt 70,80,75".
   You can also set static fan speed if you specify negative values, for example "-tt -50" sets 50% fan speed. Specify zero to disable control and hide GPU statistics.
   "-tt 1" (default) does not manage fans but shows GPU temperature and fan status every 30 seconds. Specify values 2..5 if it is too often.

-tstop   set stop GPU temperature, miner will stop mining if GPU reaches specified temperature. For example, "-tstop 95" means 95C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-tstop 95,85,90".
   This feature is disabled by default ("-tstop 0"). You also should specify non-zero value for "-tt" option to enable this option.
   NOTE: Check "KNOWN ISSUES" section. GPU indexes in temperature control sometimes don't match GPU indexes in mining!
   If it turned off wrong card, it will close miner in 30 seconds.
   You can also specify negative value to close miner immediately instead of stopping GPU, for example, "-tstop -95" will close miner as soon as any GPU reach 95C temperature.


-h   number of hashes that GPU processes during one round (HashCnt). If not specified, default value is used. For many cases you can increase performance by adjusting this parameter value.
   For example, "-h 832" means HashCnt=832 for all cards. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-h 640,832,1376,0", zero value means autoselection.
   Values must be divisible by 32, otherwise near value that is divisible by 32 will be selected.
   Use "m", "+" and "-" keys to find the best value. One hash takes about 2MB of GPU memory, too big value may cause unstable mining and in many cases max value is not the best.
   For example, for 280x card the best value is 832. For 290x card the best value is 1376.
   For most popular cards miner sets the best value automatically, but there are many cards and I don't have them all, so you can find the best "-h" value by yourself.
   Press "m" key to see current hashrate for every GPU round, then use "+" and "-" keys to increase/reduce "-h" value. You can also press "0"..."9" keys to select active card.
   Sometimes changing "HashCnt" by "+" and "-" keys causes problems with OpenCL, in this case you need to restart miner and change "-h" values in command line directly.

-fanmax   set maximal fan speed, in percents, for example, "-fanmax 80" will set maximal fans speed to 80%. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-fanmax 50,60,70".
   This option works only if miner manages cooling, i.e. when "-tt" option is used to specify target temperature. Default value is "100".

-fanmin   set minimal fan speed, in percents, for example, "-fanmin 50" will set minimal fans speed to 50%. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-fanmin 50,60,70".
   This option works only if miner manages cooling, i.e. when "-tt" option is used to specify target temperature. Default value is "0".

-cclock   set target GPU core clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-cclock 1000,1050,1100,0".

-mclock   set target GPU memory clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-mclock 1200,1250,1200,0".

-powlim set power limit, from -50 to 50. If not specified, miner will not change power limit. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-powlim 20,-20,0,10".

-cvddc   set target GPU core voltage, multiplied by 1000. For example, "-cvddc 1050" means 1.05V. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-cvddc 900,950,1000,970". Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows.

-mvddc   set target GPU memory voltage, multiplied by 1000. For example, "-mvddc 1050" means 1.05V. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-mvddc 900,950,1000,970". Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows.

-mport   remote monitoring/management port. Default value is -3333 (read-mode), specify "-mport 0" to disable remote monitoring/management feature.
   Specify negative value to enable monitoring (get statistics) but disable management (restart, uploading files), for example, "-mport -3333" enables port 3333 for remote monitoring, but remote management will be blocked.
   You can also use your web browser to see current miner state, for example, type "localhost:3333" in web browser.
   Warning: use negative option value or disable remote management entirely if you think that you can be attacked via this port!

-colors enables or disables colored text in console. Default value is "1", use "-colors 0" to disable coloring.

-v   displays miner version, sample usage: "-v 1".



CONFIGURATION FILE

You can use "config.txt" file instead of specifying options in command line.
If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config.txt" file for options.
If there is only one option in the command line, it must be configuration file name.
If there are two or more options in the command line, miner will take all options from the command line, not from configuration file.
Place one option per line, if first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.



SAMPLE USAGE

 moneropool (unencrypted connection):
   NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://mine.moneropool.org:80 -u 449TGay4WWJPwsXrWZfkMoPtDbJp8xoSzFuyjRt3iaM4bRHdzw4qoDu26FdcGx67BMDS1r2bnp7f5hF 6xdPWWrD3Q3Wf7G6 -p x

 miningpoolhub SSL/TLS connection (this pool detects encryption automatically so it uses same port as for unencrypted connection):
   NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o ssl://us-east.cryptonight-hub.miningpoolhub.com:20580 -u YourLogin.YourWorker -p x

 suprnova SSL/TLS connection:
   NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o ssl://xmr.suprnova.cc:5221 -u YourLogin.YourWorker -p x

Do not forget to specify your wallet address!



FAILOVER

Use "epools.txt" file to specify additional pools. This file has text format, one pool per line. Every pool has 3 connection attempts.
Miner disconnects automatically if pool does not send new jobs for a long time or if pool rejects too many shares.
If the first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
Do not change spacing, spaces between parameters and values are required for parsing.
If you need to specify "," character in parameter value, use two commas - ,, will be treated as one comma.
You can reload "epools.txt" file in runtime by pressing "r" key.
Pool specified in the command line is "main" pool, miner will try to return to it every 30 minutes if it has to use some different pool from the list.
If no pool was specified in the command line then first pool in the failover pools list is main pool.
You can change 30 minutes time period to some different value with "-ftime" option, or use "-ftime 0" to disable switching to main pool.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.



PERFORMANCE

About 810 h/s on stock 290X (Hynix memory).
About 710 h/s on stock 290X (Elpida memory).
About 690 h/s on stock 290  (Elpida memory).
About 550 h/s on stock 280X (Hynix memory).
About 440 h/s on stock 270X (Elpida memory).
About 410 h/s on stock 270  (Elpida memory).


TROUBLESHOOTING

1. Install Catalyst v15.12.
2. Disable overclocking.
3. Set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100.
4. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB.
5. Reboot computer.



TUNING

For 290X/290/280X/270X/270 you can leave default parameters, i.e. do not specify "-a" and "-h", miner will apply best settings automatically.

For other cards, guide how to get maximal speed:

1. Try "-a 1", "-a 3", "-a 4" and select best mode, press "m" key to see immediate hashrate.
2. Remember "HashCnt" value when miner starts, then specify "-h" parameter with this value, remember hashrate and change "-h" parameter step by step by 32 in both directions (less and more).
   Select best value based on immediate hashrate.



FAQ:

Q: I see too many devfee shares, it looks like devfee is 50%!

A: It's not true, please learn some theory about pool mining.
Some pools use vardiff - they change share target according miner speed. If miner is slow, pool set lower target share, and vice versa. It allows miner to send shares regularly, both fast and slow miners will send similar number of shares per minute, pool will not be overloaded by shares from fast miners and it will not lose slow miners that cannot find valuable shares often. By the way, when you mine solo the share target is block target (very high) so you will find shares very rarely but they will solve blocks and therefore will have maximal value.
Low share target means that miner will find a lot of cheaper shares, high share target means that miner will find fewer shares but they will be more valuable.
When share is found, miner displays share target, for example:

SHARE FOUND (target 10000)

or

DevFee: SHARE FOUND (target 1000)

Compare current targets for main and devfee connections. From example above, 10 devfee shares at target 1000 cost as one share at target 10000.
But devfee mining is very slow and therefore pool uses x10 lower target. So you see a lot of devfee shares but they are much cheaper than main shares.

http://monero.crypto-pool.fr/

Recently optimized. Fixed the code. Auto-restart. Less orphan, more blocks, more Monero.

EDIT :
For GPU the address is :

stratum+tcp://monero.crypto-pool.fr:6666


Example :

Type this in a command prompt or make a batch file :

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
C:\Path_to_miner\NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://monero.crypto-pool.fr:6666 -u your_address_here -p x

Or if it doesn't work, try :

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
C:\Path_to_miner\NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o monero.crypto-pool.fr:1111 -u your_address_here -p x

See my signature for tutorial ;)

This miner isn't that much fast than some of the cpu's out there. A high/mid end AMD or Intel can match some of these speeds.

Is the power consumption low with this miner?

The only one that has more than 10% has 60% of the network and you can't even use GPU miner on it as they don't have HTTP support.

Definitely at this early stage of release. It would need to be 3x or more of hash rate to be considered efficient enough.

Strange. It works for me with simpleminer. Did you try to connect on any port besides 1111? Because if you try to connect to a stratum port with the HTTP protocol your IP is banned for up to 1 hour.

Getting 890 H/s with 3x280x.


Having some problems with another rig though (5x 280x).

the miner tells me setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 is not set although it most certainly is.

The performance shows as I get only some 550 H/s out of 5 GPUs.

What am I missing?

PS: I don't pay for electricity and the CPUs in my mining rigs are crap so for me this is a welcome possibility to mine MRO...uh wait, XRM ;)

Is this in the miner? the GPU settings? Windows settings?

Make a batch file with the following content and run it from the folder where you unzipped the miner:

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o mine.moneropool.org:1111 -u 47..... -p x

Does it tell you the pool hashrate? or does it say "Not found" for your address?

If it is the former can you see stats on this page? http://mine.moneropool.org:8117/stats

If you can't see that page it may be that you have port 8117 blocked or your IP is still somehow banned.

At 650H/s you should get 3.12 XMR/day = 96.72 XMR/mo = $182.32/mo. So basically break even at current prices.

This program appears to encorporate open source licenced code... do you plan on releasing source code, or are you okay with being sued for every penny you make off the project?

Violating open source licenses is seriously uncool.

That's a fairly vague accusation.  Can you back it up with more detail?

Also, there are many types of open-source licenses;  BSD/MIT-style licenses do not require redistribution of the source code, only an appropriate statement in the copyright notice.  GPL-style licenses do.

For example, the Cryptonote (monero, etc.) sources are all under an MIT/X11 license, which is very permissive:

In contrast, the sources for cpuminer/cpuminer-multi are under the GPL:

Ya, don't mind me on this one. I deleted my post quite promptly for a reason (before any replies were actually posted yet) - some reversing suggested GPL licenced code, but I decided I didn't have enough evidence to make the claim of licence infringment yet.

These issues will hopefully be resolved when stratum support is added (<24 hours).

so which one of these is the most profitable?

...and if there are merge mining options we are really missing out by not implementing it as soon as posible.

Just mine MRO. The others are not worth your time for a few % more profit. And pretty sure MRO is most profitable..

1. MRO was first
2. QCN was originally a relaunch of Monero
3. QCN has added no improvements to the code
4. MRO has contributed many bug fixes, 20x improvements in hashing speed, the pool software, has a reasonable fee so the blockchain can't be spammed, etc.

Profit calculator on whatmine.com shows out of the CryptoNight coins that QCN and FCN are more profitable than XMR most of the times.
The volumes for QCN and FCN are very low. Good luck selling much for those pumped prices.

Another comparison (excluding pool/exchange fees/taxes):

Processor: 4820k, 4 cores w/ AES accel, 126w resting, 171w mining, 45w used for mining. Delivers 180 hash/sec. 4 hash/watt. Cost: $324 New. Hash/$ = .56 . Monthly Power cost (me): $5.185. Net @ 4.47M# = (.002532BTC/MRO * 29.18MRO/Month * $645.97/BTC) = $47.73. Net = $42.54. ROI = 7.6 months

GPU: r9 290, stock clocks, 216w used for mining (Comp w/ GPU mining - Comp w/ no GPU hooked to pwr.), 437.5 h/s. 2.02 hash/watt. Cost: ~$420 New. Hash/$ = 1.04 . Monthly Power cost (me): $24.4. Net @ 4.47M# = (.002532BTC/MRO * 70.92MRO/Month * $645.97/BTC) = $91.6. ROI = 4.6 months

GPU has about a 1.65:1 edge over the CPU for ROI
CPU has about a 1.97:1 edge over the GPU for hash/watt operating costs
GPU has about a 1.86:1 edge over the CPU for Hash/$ investment

Really interesting numbers .. too close to call it for either one at this point. Every update or optimization changes these numbers and there's been lots, for at least the CPU over the last month. Anyone know any other PoW that has such a small gap between CPU's and GPU's?


Edit: Forgot to mention this is on windows, you probably see much better numbers for at least the CPU on linux

Also Monero is a Bytecoin clone which:

Had an unfair launch

citation needed.  the whole point of BMR was to fix the BCN premine.

Quote
Has a too steep emission curve

I am more sympathetic to this complaint, but I have to ask:  Too steep for what purpose?  Because of divisibility, it really doesn't matter how many coins are out there.   A good coin will always cost roughly the same to buy or to mine.  Getting the coins out quickly means price is lower, so they are easy to buy, which improves dispersion.  That should allow the denominated economy to grow more quickly.

The whole idea of MRO "fair launch" is failed because of several large botnets. E.g., https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=639375.0

So Monero developers are not competent to make anything valuabel for CryptoNote at all. And the beneficiaries of the Monero launch are botnet owners. At least Bytecoin developers stake in mined coins can be seen as their reward and a way to stabilize the market, while the botnet dumpers are dangerous for Monero and all CryptoNote.

Aaaand, there was no premine, there was no scam. New evidence suggests so (see Bytecoin thread, pages 102 and on).

I doubt there are two many bots on Monero, I'm 2.5 Khashes at of 3600 Khashes It is showing as network speed. I could be like 7.5 Khashes if I went all in. So, I'm one guy in a residential property. And Right now I'm 1/1440 of the whole network with 2.5 Khashes.  I could be 1/480 of the whole network. So, there may be some bots but doubt it's that much.

Currently only pool version of GPU miner is available, but you can create private pool and mine solo with this miner.

Ah ok ok !

thx

Let's do some optimizations now. I get the same 120 h/s from my 7850, same as the first version  ;D
It don't stress the card though, it consumes the same as an i7 4770, but an i7 4770 easily reaches 160 h/s.

The whole idea of MRO "fair launch" is failed because of several large botnets. E.g., https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=639375.0

So Monero developers are not competent to make anything valuabel for CryptoNote at all. And the beneficiaries of the Monero launch are botnet owners. At least Bytecoin developers stake in mined coins can be seen as their reward and a way to stabilize the market, while the botnet dumpers are dangerous for Monero and all CryptoNote.

Aaaand, there was no premine, there was no scam. New evidence suggests so (see Bytecoin thread, pages 102 and on).

If monero is fail because of botnets why isnt Bytecoin too because of botnets?

Aaaand 80% of mined coins bytecoins were mine before this coin ever announced here or elsewhere on the internet. So yes its premined. But anyway, with 150 billions coins already mined at 5 satoshi price its already at about 5m$ cap. Price of BCN will never go past a few satoshis. And noone serious would invest in something a few people hold more than 80% ready to dump... BCN was probably started as a test coin and it should have stayed there...but someone decided to make a few BTC and made it public...

I know I post too many updates today :)
However, v1.2 is available now:

- Fixed bug for pools that use variable targets for shares.
- Fixed bugs in Stratum code.

This version must be stable. If it crashes on your system, check "troubleshooting" section in OP.

Money is where your heart is. Bytecoin is not received by the community. It is useless.

Your post says nothing about how large the botnet is or it is just your imagination. Or you are one of the botnet owners? ;)

If the botnet story is true, so ...

+ Even botnet owners do not care about Bytecoin although they do no pay mining cost.
+ To botnet owners, Bytecoin is just another junk coin

Your argument makes me think that Bytecoin devs are biggest genuine dumpers because they hold lots of coins which botnet owners take years to mine. You said so ;)

Bytecoin is 83% premined in 2 years before launch. It is reported everywhere

http://weeklyglobalresearch.wordpress.com/2014/05/27/research-report-the-most-ethical-and-genuine-altcoins/

Bytecoin devs try to draw a picture that fills with invisible miners and ghost users or unknown saints to make fools think that their coin is legit. Good luck

So Bytecoin is a neither scam nor heavy premined

http://www.lowereastsidetours.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/1374532175_Miley-Cyrus-Utilizes-Tray_1.gif

Bytecoin is done. I respect the dev team for creating the first buggy reference implementation of CryptoNote. I wish them the best

I did not change anything in GPU part so versions 1.0/1.1/1.2 are the same in RAM requirements. The main problem is in OpenCL driver, to assign big size of GPU RAM it also requires a lot of available RAM for some reason though it doesn't use it at all. So Virtual Memory (VM) helps a lot, it is not used actually but it makes OpenCL driver work correctly.
With Catalyst 13.12, GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100, 4 GB of RAM and 16 GB of VM I can make it work on 4 290X 4GB. But I did not test 5 or 6 cards.

What RAM size is installed?
Assume you use Catalyst 13.12 and GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100, so miner at starting shows "3072 MB available" for every card.

Yes. I have used Catalyst 13.12 and "setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100"
I have 2 GB RAM installed. Windows 7 64 bit. Do I need more RAM?

Probably yes, try to install 4GB and see if it helps. It seems to make OpenCL driver happy you need to have at least 4GB of RAM if your cards have 4GB.
Though it doesn't work without VM 16GB anyway for me, without VM I cannot make work even one 290X with 4GB RAM installed. But 16GB of VM did the trick. Also it depends on Catalyst version, I tested everything on 13.12 only. On system with 8 GB I can run one 290X and one 280X without VM at all, so RAM size installed is important too in some cases.

the program doesnt crash, only 2 7950's running in that rig and only 3 280x's running in the other rig. and just one card randomly stops hasing and the hash rate slowly drops until it only shows one card working, afterburner shows the card at 0% until i restart the miner and then its fine for awhile, i cant say for sure on the time span of how long it takes, can be very random. last night it went for over 13 hours without an issue, as of the past hour i have needed to restart the program for the 7950's 3 times already.

To be exact :

Claymore take 5% of your hashing power.
The pool take (95%*98%)-95%=1.9% of your hashing power.
Both take together 6.9% (not 7%) of your hashing power.

So Claymore fees represent 62% of the total fees and the pool represent 38% of the total fees.

I'm just clarifying things, don't mind me. I just like when it is precise.

Miner requires a lot of GPU RAM. For full speed 3GB is required for 290/290X/280X and 2GB for 270/270X.
If miner cannot find 2 GB it will work with 1 GB but much slower.

Note that if something is wrong with memory allocation miner won't work a bit slower, it will work much slower (in 1.5 - 2 times), so if someone has 400h/s instead of 450h/s - memory allocation is not the reason.

Are you sure you use 13.12? When I install 13.12 after 14.4 Catalyst still shows "14.x" version, so I have to start AMD Clean-up utility firstly to remove 14.x, and then install 13.12.

The problem is not in memory, the problem is in OpenCL stability when almost all available GPU RAM is used. I cannot reproduce this problem on my rigs for some reason, so it will take some time to find a workaround (if possible).

Tried it on my old laptop. Pity that it is stuck on outdated Samsung AMD 12 drivers. Anyways it sort of worked with a few accepted shares every now and again, miner doesn't give a hash rate though. Its a 7670m btw. (and yes I've set more than 16gb of virtual memory). After a while it stops working though. Support for other driver version would be nice.

Copying the AMD opencl files from the 13.12 driver package to the same folder as the GPU miner gets me 810h/s and less error messages, while still on 14.4 driver

Keep your new driver, download the old 13.12 driver from
http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop/previous?os=Windows%207%20-%2064
and only run the first step of the installer, that unzips the files to the c:\amd folder, then exit the installation.
Then copy the amdocl* and amd_opencl* to the GPU miner folder from
c:\AMD\Support\13-12_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql\Packages\Drivers\Display\WB6A_INF\B165829\

Testing older AMD drivers, by putting the AMD OpenCL (amd_opencl*.dll and amdocl*.dll )files in the same folder as the miner:

13.4 - Gives out of memory errors (GPU memory allocation failed)
13.9 - Similar performance as 13.12
13.12 - Baseline
14.4 - A lot slower, about 25% and gives error codes at startup
14.6 beta - A lot slower, about 25% and complains about "bad performance mode" at startup

Hello,

Today i test some state on CPU Corei7 and GPU 7970/280x  on Stock speed.

Still CPU mining is more profitable then GPU.  Correct me if i wrong.

Running AMD driver 14.4 gets me 580 h/s.

Copying the AMD opencl files from the 13.12 driver package to the same folder as the GPU miner gets me 810h/s and less error messages, while still on 14.4 driver

Keep your new driver, download the old 13.12 driver from
http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop/previous?os=Windows%207%20-%2064
and only run the first step of the installer, that unzips the files to the c:\amd folder, then exit the installation.
Then copy the amdocl* and amd_opencl* to the GPU miner folder from
c:\AMD\Support\13-12_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql\Packages\Drivers\Display\WB6A_INF\B165829\

Would be nice to have the files included with the miner, but I guess there is a small copyright issue...

What cards are you using? Is that 810 h/s per card?

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
C:\Path_to_miner\NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://monero.crypto-pool.fr:6666 -u your_address_here -p x





if I want it to be send direct to an exchange adress is this possible when I write the adress in the command-line or what should I do with the payment_ID?

That doesn't make sense at all.  BTW, why are you only getting 74.85 for your CPU?  That's way low.

But by your own shares, you should get a bit more then 3 times the coins for the GPU.

How do you know how much you made for each?  Do you have two wallet addresses and use a different one for each?

My suggestion only as a test would be to generate 2 new wallet addresses for a different coin you have not mined in the last day such as Quazar (QCN).  Setup and run both the CPU and GPU at the same time for that other coin for say 1 hour.  After an hour switch back to XMR and then wait until the coins come in from QCN.  This will prove exactly how much differernce there is without the chance of polluting your results since you have already been mining XMR.

OR

Just generate 2 brand new wallet addresses for XMR and use them for the test.  Just make sure you haven't used either address before.  This will give you clean results.

Carlo

yes,i have the same problem.I mine at monero.com and gpu miner shows 1606kh/s and i should be getting  8.25xmr-% dev fee+%2 miner fee:7.6xmr  with current difficulty but i only got 6.8 xmr today.Either miner values are not correct or pool takes more than %2.

The pool's displayed hashrate is an estimate based on the shares you have submitted. The miner's hashrate is correct. The pool also doesn't include the devfee in your hashrate.

Did you account for orphans? Look at your pool and see what the percentage of orphans is. Subtract that percentage, and you probably will end up close to what you got paid.

Miner shows raw rate and this value is correct. Pool shows final rate so it is always lower.
Also pool does not accept outdated shares (1-2%) though it does not return any errors about it so you don't see it in miner.
Also don't forget about "Outdated share found - skip" messages - it's about 3-5% of shares.

Hi everyone.

I opened a new pool for duckNote :

duck.crypto-pool.fr (http://duck.crypto-pool.fr/)

It is as great as monero.crypto-pool.fr (http://monero.crypto-pool.fr/) because it has all improvements & fix.

The address is : stratum+tcp://duck.crypto-pool.fr:6677

Have a try ;)

You are using some variation of non-13.12 driver.  I've actually had a rig or 2 working on the 14.4s with clPTS before.. so it still may work for you (but slower).

Either way, 800 h/s is low for 4 7950s.  Each 7950 is capable of 300h/s+.  All of my 5 card 7950 rigs do 1.3k+ @ 1100/1500, but they are also on the 13.12s.

gigabyte WF3 280x seem to be very terrible at this algo..... barley do 300 which i believe is odd as my asus 280x's can do 360h/s easy...... wonder if it has something to do with the cards being voltage locked from factory, which leaves very little OC room....

With 3 290s I'm getting just shy of 1600h/s with 1200/1500. I guess this miner is not pushing the cards so much in its current state as I can't get anywhere near this high of an overclock usually.

To me something seems off with either the profit calculator estimates, pools, the miner, or everything combined. Since I'm hashing at 1600h/s, yet every day I receive 30% less than what is supposed to be. Even with the miner fee and pool fee + lost shares, that can't be 30-35% less? Also it seems stock elpida 280x cards suffer from poor hashrate (260~ vs 364 hynix) that is a considerable loss, just like in scrypt coins, and overcloking the elpida cards doesn't seem to bring more than 30h/s more, still far off from a otherwise identical 280x with hynix vram. You can OC the gpu's considerably higher than say scrypt coins, yet overclocking seems to have very little effect to hash rate and power consumption on a 280x & 290. Seems like some parts of the cards are hardly utilized at all.

Hi,

I have these warnings when I start my miner, can somebody help me, what is wrong?
..
..
..
Is this this an issue of my GPU driver?

I am using MSI 7950 Twin Frozr and I think the speed of the 4 GPU's is 800 h/s, is this normal or low for 4 cards?

You are using some variation of non-13.12 driver.  I've actually had a rig or 2 working on the 14.4s with clPTS before.. so it still may work for you (but slower).

Either way, 800 h/s is low for 4 7950s.  Each 7950 is capable of 300h/s+.  All of my 5 card 7950 rigs do 1.3k+ @ 1100/1500, but they are also on the 13.12s. 

THANK YOU for the replies, let me install 13.12 and add 1100/1500.

Ok, so I have installed 13.12 Catalyst on my 4-MSI 7950 and my settings below:

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://mine.moneropool.org:80 -u (address) -p x --gpu-engine 1000 --gpu-memclock 1500

This setting gives me a total of 1100 h/s .......and 275 h/s each, can I still push this to 300 h/s? I don't know how....


Also for 3 - R9 290s are getting a total of 1280 h/s with settings below:

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://mine.moneropool.org:80 -u (address) -p x

Actually no memclock and gpu engine settings, please post your settings here if you can get higher than mine.

Are you running 290's or 290x?  I can't get mine stable at those clocks, driver crashes and system locks up.  I'm running mine at 1100/1300 and getting 450h/s

I'm noticing quite a reduction in hashrate on the pool I'm mining with than what the mining app is saying I'm hashing at.  I should be hashing at a total around 12000 h/s but I never see the total on the site go higher than 8000 h/s.

Is there really such a high rate of rejects and stales?

It's a ram bound algo, 290s use up a bit over 3gb when mining it...the 280x doesn't have enough ram to saturate all shaders.

I also more than not, see a lower hashrate than what the actual miner shows ( actual hashrate according to miner: 1605~ give or take 10/s).
I would guess this is just because the diff is set so high, that the shares come in at such long intervals, making the estimates drop. Still it should show a hashrate considerably over your actual speed every once in a while. Which it does for me, but rarely (I see 1.15 - 1.30KH/sec majority of the time, it even goes as low as 0.75KH/sec). Also the pools I tried, like moneropool.com among others, are frequently disconnecting and reconnecting all gpu's in random intervals ( every 5-40 min). Albeit not all at once, so I would think the issue is not my connection but a problem on the poolside/miner client.

Running 290s, I'm using Stilt bios with an extra 38mv and powertune at 20. My cards are watercooled but they are running even cooler than x11 so I'm sure they would be fine on air as well.

I'm running sapphire 290 tri-x cards so can't use stilts bios on my cards :(  I'll have a bit more play and see if I can squeeze anything more out of mine.

I've noticed on gpuz that the memory clock drops right down, does XMR mining use the cards memory much or is it like keccak and uses very little?

for those who have cards randomly drop in single/Multi card rigs where the gpu usage drops to 0% and H/s rate slowly drops on its ass, it has something to do with
"thread hung during OpenCL call"......... if that makes any sense to anyone. try different driver/openCL versions and if possible list ya findings here so a work around/fix can be made...

Raising mem-clocks from 1600Mhz to 1800Mhz resulted in an 8% hashrate increase for my rig (3x 280x Toxic). 1000 h/s --> 1080 h/s. (1100;1600 ---> 1100;1800)
To me it looks like performance moves proportionally to changes in clocks.
Doing 1103 h/s now with 1140; 1800. Been running stable for 6h+

This is true, but power consumption increases dramatically.
I do not know whether it is worth

I notice something else.
Today is better as statistics.
Apparently they did any improvements because now shows just in a pool and miner

All is there a way to turn the fan intensity up the miner is Great but my cards keep over heating and the computer crashes..2* 280x's

also will there be a linux version soon i hate using windows

Many Thanks

I cannot really comment about that because I do not have a monitor for power consumption.

I have strange feelings about this GPU miner so I don't use anymore this shit!!  I tried  with one r9 280x for two days (with Catalyst v13.12 and got 344h/s)
First day on moneropool.org and got 0.55 monero
Second day on moneropool.com  and got 0.52 monero
 On the same pools i used also, one AMD FX 8350 (240-245h/s) and i got for each day 1.24 monero ....

Have a nice day all of you!!
Cheers!

Very easy to do that although this miner cannot change fan speed. You just download MSI Afterburner and chagne fan speed manually by your choice. My 280x always stay around 55 - 62 celsius degree temp ( environment temp around 32 celsius degree - Vietnam)

Okay, let's configure like mine : Win7 64bit, VM 24GB, Catalyst 13.12, AfterBurner 3.0.1.
Set unlock mem and core in AfterBurner, set Fan speed constant at 90% and mining at moneropool.org with port 5555.
I think your problem is in ATI Driver, you should uninstall all ATI driver and its relative ( delete is good choice ) and reinstall if after restart. DirectX will not help anything

any thoughts on how to get 280x's stable with this gpu miner yet?

and why gigabyte 280x's seem to suffer very low hash rate, eg struggle to break 300h/s when compared to an asus 280x that does 360 with ease.

I see same thing on 290, and clock is stable on 280X. Some algos don't use memory heavily so driver reduces mem clock, it must not cause less mining speed if driver knows what it's doing. The questions is why it reduces clock for 290 only.

Because the power saving features on R9 290 are more advanced  than in previous generation : the gpu and mem frequency are fastly adapted to the present charge.
For X11 mining (before recent optimizations), I obtained some minor performance increase with disabling this power management behaviour : in MSI afterburner, using unofficial overclocking with disabling powerplay : this forces always max clock.

I get periodic disconnects from mining, at which point I have to manually restart. It would be good if the software could be updated to detect this and automatically restart. Also, support for multiple pools (i.e. failover) would be helpful. Last but not least, optimizations to performance are almost certainly still available. Are there plans to open source this eventually? Or do we just need to wait for ccMiner and sgminer to create their own Cryptonight code?

If i'm not wrong, you're using port 80 as default as pool recommended ? Forget that port, change to another port like 5555 (moneropool) or 6666 (crypto-pool.fr), it will work well with more hashrate accuracy than port 80

It doesn't automatically try to reconnect? I have to restart the pool sometimes (often a few times a day) when the daemon gets stuck..

disconnects has nothing to do with the miner. monero.org and. fr having ddos attacks since yesterday

R9 280x Windforce Rev2. I do it with default clock 1100/1500. Stop OC your CoreClock cuz it will not stable and increase very little hashrate compare with power consumption. I suggest use default for best performance. If you want to OC, just increase a little with MemClock. FORGET TO OC CORE, IT'S NOT GOOD AT ALL.

do you have stock bios, or modded bios btw?
and do yours stay at 99/100% usage or do they bounce around alittle?

Edit.
both cards running at stock clocks with only +20% to power, one does 292 and the other does 288h/s.
very low considering my asus 280x both combined do 730H/s :-/

Cannot confirm your experience with overclocking. My Rig has been running stable with 1140/1800 clocks for 28 hours now. Each 280x toxic is hashing with like 360h/s.
Don't know about changes in power consumption, but I don't really care cause its free anyway ;)

i use stock bios, no OC, no powertune. My card performance info (stable constant all next info) : Core 1100, Mem 1500, Mem use 99%, fan speed 90%, temp around 55 - 60 ( environment around 30 celsius degree)
 I think Claymore build this miner base on ATI 280x factory default parameter, so that if you change or try to change any element parameter of your cards, it will lead to wrong data reply with miner algo. So the result is hashrate drop down or card works unstable.

i believe that its also dependent on the type of memory the card has been build with. as we know Hynix is what 15% faster then Elpida memory which is where iam starting to believe my issue is actually comeing from with low hash rates. weather that is something that can be overcome with fine greater tuneing to the miner itself by claymore or weather it can be adjusted to be stable via memclocks i cant say. how ever OC works well on 280x's and 7 series and even 6 series gpus. my 2 asus 280x's are OCed and are 100% stable for days. my 2 7950's produce 606h/s between them so that 303 H/s per card, and thats under OC, my 6950 modded to 6970 specs does 120h/s with a mild overclock and has also been stable for days. the cards i have listed are hynix/other based memory built in and when compared to my gb 280x's they all OC very well and are stable where the GB dont seem to be very stable even at stock clocks, which as i suggested i believe is due to the cheaper memory type that was used....

R9 280x GPU dropping activity SOLVED:

I found the problem was in relation with my PSU, i was pushing 6 GPU R9 280x with 2 PSU: 1300 watt + 1000w PSU.

I removed 2 x GPU and used only one PSU of 1300watt which can fullfill 4 x GPU (Rosewill 1300w PSU). Right now im mining with Claymore on my 4 x R9 280x with one good PSU 1300w without any problem of VM memory leak or GPU activity.

My 1000w PSU ETG was removed and ill add an extra 530w PSU to support the motherboard connections.

All people with over 4 x GPU and with lower PSU amp and watts, should try removing some GPU cards, one by one

A 7950 in one rig that has two other 280x has video driver crashes even with stock BIOSes. The problem is that this results in the mining program closing. Is there a way to automatically start it when it closes or any other ideas? No problems with the rig until now.

Remove drivers with driver cleaner in safe mode, let it clean and restart as it suggests, then install for instance 14.4

i dont think thats the issue. as i have 1 280x running solo on a 1000w gold rated psu and it was still dropping like a bitch. so power is not the issue. only wal that i have found around it is by installing amd SDK 2.9, did that over 14 hours ago and still no crash compared to haveing it crash/drop gpu cards every few hours. i know it has something to do with open Cl thread call or something, i made mention to it several pages back. i will continue to run my cards with the SDK pack and see how it goes over the next few days....

DEV please help.. how fixed memory clock on 290 and 290x

what issue are you having with the memclocks?

all 290 and 290x have look pictures..  http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/aliaksandr-kavaleuski/view/1148794

every 0.5 seconds memory frequency from 150 to 1300 non stop.. i have 6 rigs whit 290 and 290x all have this problem


Same here!?

patriot1889 you used "setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100" and now it is permamently saved in windows registry and others miners doesnt't accept it
now you will have to reinstall system or remove this keys from system registry

Hmm I used that a long time ago and mined most algos successfully after that, with many different drivers?

Yes, Zembal, I have also used that before so I don't think that's it. But thanks for the suggestion :)

I'll try driver cleaner and a reinstall.

R9 280x GPU dropping activity SOLVED:

I found the problem was in relation with my PSU, i was pushing 6 GPU R9 280x with 2 PSU: 1300 watt + 1000w PSU.

I removed 2 x GPU and used only one PSU of 1300watt which can fullfill 4 x GPU (Rosewill 1300w PSU). Right now im mining with Claymore on my 4 x R9 280x with one good PSU 1300w without any problem of VM memory leak or GPU activity.

My 1000w PSU ETG was removed and ill add an extra 530w PSU to support the motherboard connections.

All people with over 4 x GPU and with lower PSU amp and watts, should try removing some GPU cards, one by one

i was about to say the same thing i did the something and no more problem for 2 days now using one PSU 1200 Watt for 3 280x toxic but my hash rate  still 295 for card etc.

Cleaned the driver, no change.

Going to have a go with PiMP to see if it's somehow knackered my GPUs or if its the OS. Downloading now.

overclock your R9 280x:

R9 280x with ELPIDA Memory: 1150 core / 1500 mem (+20% powerlimit)
R9 280x with HYNIX Memory: 1150 core / 1600 mem (0% powerlimit)

method does not work. OC value do not work. the issue with cards dropping is related to "thread hung during OpenCL call"... this has already been confirmed by claymore.... PSU isnt the issue and it seems the SDK pack only seems to slow the drop issue down somewhat. So this is a driver issue dependent on card types as well, seems to affect ELPIDA cards worse. GB 280x both built with ELPIDA and running off gold 1000w psus each drop cards randomly, compared to asus DCT2 built with hynix and heavily overclocked have yet to drop a card or crash since the gpu miner was released and they are run off a toughpower 775w bronze PSU....... so psu is not the likely issue.

GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT is an environment variable, not a registry key...

http://windows7themes.net/en-us/how-to-change-environment-variables-in-windows-7/

Tried this, made no difference. I've tried PiMP, no difference.

Some good news however... I've managed to get my cards hashing back at the same clocks with nearly the same hashrate. I did this by removing my undervolting.

Anyone have any ideas on how this miner could've messed up the voltage on my cards? or if you can think of anything else that could have done it?

I'm going to leave them hashing away like this for now, try and get it working stable. Then I'll tackle my undervolt again. It has been working for over 6 months perfectly fine before I used this (so it's not an unstable undervolt), very strange.


Just a quick update for anyone that is interested/has any ideas. Thanks for all the suggestions so far guys, much appreciated :)

i have tried different versions of drivers, working stock clocks all clean installs and still can not get a stable setup. i have also tried disableing monitoring programs and other programs and still not stable. most times its a driver crash even at stock clocks, or it just stops hashing. getting abit beyond a joke atm. anyone else have any bright ideas??? only thing worth noteing driver 13.9 seems to give a few extra hashs

hello claymore. This gpu maner is very good. But it mined only in mro and qcn.I want to mine bbr \acn\duck etc. the miner show"MRO/QCN/BCN/FCN addresses are supported only...." .So I  can't mine new currency in claymore gpu maner.

I thought it is not difficulty to make it .  they are in same Algorithm.

need your new version support mining new currency。
 
thank you

I only got around 280H/s
Drivers are recommended, Win7 x64 with 8 GB ram, fresh install.

 What I've noticed, is that for my 7950 cards best H/s are attained when I set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 80 for all cards (7870,7950,290). Otherwise there is too much video memory allocated for 7950 (some 2.6GB), which results in decreased performance. Optimal value seems to be 1797MB for 7950. Cannot check the values for 7970 as I don't have one.

I tested the miner with the following cards and got these results:
HD6970=110 H/s
HD6950=110 H/s

@880core/1250mem

So, it works on the 69xx's series ok and it should work on the 58xx's/5970 fine.

I should have said the 2GB version of the 5870, rare card.

Yes, it looks like you are right
If I set 92 then I got 324 , setting to 95 got 331, anything below or higher than that gives me below 300 H/s
Also I noticed next: I cannot clock my card even 1 MHz, immediately I got around 280H/s

But still it is below author performance around 370 H/s

Anyone can point me to a pool with decent hashrate?

http://monero.crypto-pool.fr/

Recently optimized. Fixed the code. Auto-restart. Less orphan, more blocks, more Monero.

EDIT :
For GPU the address is :

stratum+tcp://monero.crypto-pool.fr:6666


Example :

Type this in a command prompt or make a batch file :

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
C:\Path_to_miner\NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://monero.crypto-pool.fr:6666 -u your_address_here -p x

Or if it doesn't work, try :

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
C:\Path_to_miner\NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o monero.crypto-pool.fr:1111 -u your_address_here -p x

See my signature for tutorial ;)



I join the pool monero.crypto-pool.fr,but I found that they payout to wallet so slowly.
I mined about 59XMR at lastday,Only got about 20XMR in the past 24 hours,what a fuck experience!

I can accpet timeline for payout as they pool's dashboard say "I make payout only every 3 Hour a go for reduce nomber of transaction many users with low hashrate as difficulty for speend monero ( more transaction IN)", but I can't accpet about upon.

Yes I have it too. Solution would be to force GPU's to constant full power, via a third-party program - maybe MSI Afterburner? But unless someone comes with a easy fix for the memory drop, I am content as it is.

Anyone can point me to a pool with decent hashrate?

http://monero.crypto-pool.fr/

Recently optimized. Fixed the code. Auto-restart. Less orphan, more blocks, more Monero.

EDIT :
For GPU the address is :

stratum+tcp://monero.crypto-pool.fr:6666


Example :

Type this in a command prompt or make a batch file :

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
C:\Path_to_miner\NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://monero.crypto-pool.fr:6666 -u your_address_here -p x

Or if it doesn't work, try :

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
C:\Path_to_miner\NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o monero.crypto-pool.fr:1111 -u your_address_here -p x

See my signature for tutorial ;)



I join the pool monero.crypto-pool.fr,but I found that they payout to wallet so slowly.
I mined about 59XMR at lastday,Only got about 20XMR in the past 24 hours,what a fuck experience!

I can accpet timeline for payout as they pool's dashboard say "I make payout only every 3 Hour a go for reduce nomber of transaction many users with low hashrate as difficulty for speend monero ( more transaction IN)", but I can't accpet about upon.

Don't forget that with the last pump, Diff rise from 200M to 400M in three days...

oh not!
How many XMR I had mined was base on the mined number showed on  pool's dashboard  lookup by my wallet address, not by any calculator ! I think  it's not cause by diff rise.

And now,I redirect my hashrate to  other pool's (mine.moneropool.org) ,all things be right now, they payout so quickly,and payout number just is dashboard showed mined number by my wallet address!

Hello,

Version 2.0 is total unusable for my sapphire 280x, driver is crashed after 3 minutes work.
Second vga, asus is working well.
I guess that Sapphire is with elpida, asus is with hynix memory.
I have found it when make two cmd with option -di 0, second cmd -di 1.
Always crashed instance with sapphire vga.

Other question: why is need to put the page file 16g + ?
What is dependence between RAM and page file (virtual memory is page file), even the RAM is free up to 70 % for 4G installed memory?
I cannot see any operations with page file when miner is working.

One more thing: your miner is with closed source (this is understandable because of your profit have guarantee), so please try to compile Linux binaries.

Thanks in advance.

Page file is required to make AMD OpenCL driver happy. Memory is not used but it is required for some reason when miner allocates 2-3 GB of GPU RAM for every card. And anyway it is unstable on a few percents of systems for some reason, I don't have any solution for now.
Linux version will available later, right now I have to postpone it.

What I've noticed, is that for my 7950 cards best H/s are attained when I set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 80 for all cards (7870,7950,290). Otherwise there is too much video memory allocated for 7950 (some 2.6GB), which results in decreased performance. Optimal value seems to be 1797MB for 7950. Cannot check the values for 7970 as I don't have one.
Confirming this.


7950@1200/1500, windows 8.1, 14.6 drivers and opencl dll's from 13.12
       Max percent at 100, around 310h/s
       Max percent at 80, around 335h/s

Good find Aney!  8)
No matter what I set in GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT, my 290 always allocates 2600MB :/

We need ability to use fail-over pools.
And there is one bug: my miners under cellular modem, and some how there is 2 things:
1. Somehow, miner works ok, but later it can't establish connection to the pool and keep trying - trying - trying. I exit miner and start it again - and all ok.
2. Somehow miner works ok, but later it sais something like can't make dev shares and keep saying it forever. If I restart miner, all ok - connection to pool established, mining ok, dev mining ok.
I think this 2 cases is some problem in connection part of miner. Can you make exit if it fails for 100 attemps for example? I can do some script like   call.miner->miner ->call.miner->miner etc. and it will work perfectly, if you don't want to search for error in algoritm of recconection to pool.

its random which card crashs. some think it could be psu related which iam currently testing. will also be further testing other drivers to see if it has any affect... btw what cards are you running and what brand of memory? hynix or elpdia

Post by: Durgar on June 16, 2014, 03:54:48 PM
I don't think cards crashing has anything to do with a powersupply, because:

A. The algo draws about 40% less watts, compared to scrypt, and I don't experience crashes with scrypt, xpm, keccak, etc.

B. I never caught the 290's crashing in the one week period that I mined XMR.

C. I spotted 280x with hynix crashing twice so far in that weeks period, while 280x with elpida ram might hash anything from a hour to six before it finally drops to idle clocks and does nothing but wastes energy.

D. Clocks have no effect to the rate of crashing (unless absurbly high, duh) I can set it bone stock, oc, or underclock and it crashes all the same.

My conclusion in the brief time I mined this coin - elpida 280x cards crash all the time, and have worse hashrates than their hynix counterparts (and thats even clock to clock)
Profit estimates and what you get in reality, are far off. Even when the pools aren't constantly down from ddosing. I don't know why, but I'm guessing a whole lot of shares get blown in the wind, thanks to wonky pools that don't seem to find shares, or they get orphaned, or what ever else is happening under the curtains.

Overall mining XMR with crashing elpida cards seems to be a chore of babysitting the client, or risk comming back to check on it the next day, only to find out it's been sitting idle whole night!
Oh and the current gui wallet seems to be more like a duct tape do-it-yourself, for yourself, rather than something for public use. (I'm used to Qt wallets)




PS: The wallet synching, while wastly improved, compared to the ridiculous time it took to get 24h's worth of updating, still makes my internet connection totally unusable.
Redemption to this was to download a bandwidth limiter and choke the upload link, that it totally saturates. Of course limiting the download speed isn't such a bad idea either.

it would appear the gpu dropping issue has been slowed down, but is still there.

How much does this affect performance?



badly, as it drops gpu's randomly in single and multicard rigs. the usage goes to 0% and it stops hashing and the miner needs to be manually restarted..... yet to figure a fix around for it or a way to automatically restart the miner when the usage drops to 0%.... :-/

Do you get one card which keeps crashing? I have 5 cards in one of my rigs and I NEVER crash when mining X11 and X13 coins... When I mine monero, it crashes

its random which card crashs. some think it could be psu related which iam currently testing. will also be further testing other drivers to see if it has any affect... btw what cards are you running and what brand of memory? hynix or elpdia

all the ddos has slowed my testing thou :-\

no idea what memory but the cards vary... have a mixture of 7950, 7970 and 280x... the one that crashes is the 7970s

Well done Claymore :)

Can I add a simple script to re-run the NsGpuCNMiner. exe after it has stopped.

Put in new text file .txt

###
@echo off
cd "X:\path_to_your_monero_start_.cmd" (or NsGpuCNMiner.exe)
tasklist | findstr NsGpuCNMiner.exe || call "(X):\path_to_your_monero_start_.cmd" (or NsGpuCNMiner.exe with all necessary parameters -do not forget new option /-wd 1/ :) )
###
Rename file to whatever.cmd

Search in google how to: "windows scheduled task every minute"

Configure task scheduler to repeat this whatever.cmd on every 5 mins. (I think that 5 minutes. is minimal repeat time for windows scheduled jobs).

And you are in business :)

I know that there are many other different methods, this is my and share it with you :)

(By the way, I have some observations why in some configurations obtained video cards drivers crash, but I need a more detailed observation to share it.)


Cheers!

I am using the new miner but it has stopped for no reason twice... it doesn't freeze as you can see that blinking underscore... but it doesn't submit any shares anymore... thats the first problem. The 2nd problem is my graphics cards are still hot like they are working when they aren't submitting anymore shares. Any ideas? How do I get the miner to actually stop when it isn't actually submitting any shares? Its not like the WiFi is disconnected either... it is like it is waiting to submit the next share but doesn't do it... And that is from a 5 graphics card rig

Same here. Even with the -wd flag set it doesn't shut shut down the miner - it just hangs in mid-work. Seemed to happen randomly for me. Once after about a 15 minutes. Another time after about 2 hours. Switched back to 1.2.

Incidently, anay's suggestion about lowering the GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT to 80 worked magic for me. My 3x7950's went from 730 h/s to 890 h/s on that change alone.

As others have already pointed out, v2.1 stops submitting shares after a random amount of time, and unlike previous version that stopped functioning only on my 280x's not 290's, this one stops working with all cards in a random amount of time (sometimes it won't even make it 10 minutes) Not only does it stop submitting shares, but it leaves the clocks at high powered state, i.e. it's drawing same amount as if it was mining, yet nothing happens. Sometimes -wd 1 kills the tasks, sometimes it doesn't. Cmd box shows last share submitted msg and nothing else after that. No error messages, gpu drivers haven't crashed, and the miner client is still responsive, but does not generate any msgs - no "new job received etc, nothing, nada, zilch (pools also show zero hash rate)
In this sate basically all it does is piss away electricity at full speed, like a locomotive with no driver and no destination.

Something like that, similar to cg/sgminer and check to see if it is primary pool is alive and auto switch back without dropping any hashes.

What amd driver? Do you have a robust enough rig to your 280's? Free cpu threads and enough ram. I have these, with 16GB DDR3 and have not encountered any such problems

I keep getting complaints by the miner to up my pagefile settings to at least 16 GB while it is already set to 32 GB for 4 x 280x.

This happens with 2.2 beta as well as with older versions. It runs fine for a while and then drops out with the above complaint.

Any hints? thank you

Thanks for your reply.

It's a classical scrypt mining rig with 4 x 280x Vapor-Xs

driver is 13.12, RAM is 8 GB. The CPU is a little weak, it's an Intel G3220 at 3.0 GHz.

PSUs are 1000 W + 800 W Platinum Fractal Design (certainly not the cause for an error about virtual memory though)

Rig has been running all kinds of Algos, from Scrypt to X13 for 7 months without any issues at all.

I will upgrade the memory and see what happens.

I am about to deploy CN mining on the other 20 GPUs so I'd like to weed out all issues first.

Unlike v2.1, this one hasn't crashed so far, but again 280x with elpida doesn't seem to be running right after a while, as I checked, I saw these anomalies http://bayimg.com/AAOieaafM (http://bayimg.com/AAOieaafM) and http://bayimg.com/aAOIgAafm (http://bayimg.com/aAOIgAafm)

v2.2 is available:

- Fixed bugs.

Thanks for the updated miner, is there a way to swap back to the primary pool once it becomes active again?

I can add option to disconnect from current pool and try to connect to first pool in the list every hour.

That would be fantastic if possible. I keep finding my miners on different pools every time I check them.

Can you set "-dbg 2" option, increase console buffer height (in console settings) up to 5000 lines and when you see this problem send me text from console? You can send PM me, I want to track down this problem, but I cannot reproduce it on my rigs.

Slowly I am migrating all rigs to XMR.

One rig in particular keeps me scratching my bald head.

This is what happens on a 4 x 280x MSI Gaming rig:

http://i.imgur.com/Wjv8QyN.png (http://imgur.com/Wjv8QyN)

Unlike all others memory usage is only about 5xx MB per GPU and I am getting only 550 H/s for the complete rig while other 4 GPU rigs run at 1300 H/s + and show around 2000 MB of memory utilization.

then I noticed this while GPU-Z shows them with the correct 3072 MB video ram.

http://i.imgur.com/vo21s57.png (http://imgur.com/vo21s57)


Any idea what could be causing this?

Drivers are 13.12, Windows 8.1, pagefile set at 32 GB

 Maybe the problem is that 280x cards are supposed to have 3GB of video memory, and yours indicate 2GB available.

Hi Guys!

First Claymore THANKS! I think you are doing a really great job both with this miner and the XPM one. (I really hope you make enough for the effort and time you put in!)

I have one test rig where this miner runs flawlessly.. (I can confirm it is working on 6870,6850 @ 70-100 H/s/card only 3 GB memory dual core.)

I wanted to try it on a "real" rig.

win7, catalyst 13.12 , 4x 79xx..  6 GB .. newest 2.2 version (got it also with 2.1)

But I get this error I have not seen anyone else reporting...

Anyone with an idea what I could do?

@Clayore: you probably have the best chance of guessing or knowing what kould be wrong. Please if you have any "feeling" whatsoever.

Hope someone can help!

It's GPU memory allocation error, I will update miner so it will show more detailed message. Try to set Virtual Memory (pagefile) 16GB or larger as described in readme.

I havent tried yet but cant you just use this version to solo mine ? I cant see anything restricting it  ???
It's gotten to the point where I am seriously considering moving off cryptonight unless I can solo. The pools are constantly down, not paying out etc...

I think you can solomine by building your own private pool from github source, run that pool at your own computer and point your GPU miner to it. This way might sound complicated but it worth to do it.

I continue with my testing :

BCN this time (no DDOS on pool so far)

CPU on minergate (with merge mining) : between 900H/s and 1200H/s seen by pool : 57K after 6 hours
GPU with pool (extrempool) : ~2400H/s : 46K after 6 hours.

I really don't understand why ther is such a difference.
I already tested with MRO on two different pool (cryptopool-fr and wolf), on QCN, and now with BCN. I always have less or barely more with GPU than with cpu on minergate..instead of 2 times more at least.


Next test : cpu and GPU on the same pool, with two differents address to control if the problem is pool or miner (i think it's pool, but i have to verify)


I asked dev for a version wich can mine to minergate's pool (even without merge mining - and still with a fee for him), but he doesn't want.

DEV please help.. how fixed memory clock on 290 and 290x

what issue are you having with the memclocks?

all 290 and 290x have look pictures..  http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/aliaksandr-kavaleuski/view/1148794

every 0.5 seconds memory frequency from 150 to 1300 non stop.. i have 6 rigs whit 290 and 290x all have this problem


I am mining with 290s also. You do not need high memclock to mine with this program. Set your memclock to 150 and your Engine to 947 to be most efficient and you're good to go.

If you need more help I can send you my .bat file

on my 5750 1g cards, it can run.
otherwise, It runs on 5 & 6 serires cards is very slow...

exact same cards as you, good luck getting the gigabytes up past 320-330, seems to be their limit due to poor ram quality. and asus DC2 can do 400h/s easy. the gb ones also have a habit of dropping out more then most as i have found....

Probably it's because of the Elpida. A lot of people here complained about big differences in performance between cards with one thing in common so far, the ram type.
It seems that Elpida is vastly under performing.

For BCN, 9 hours later, total is ~70K for gpu and 57K for cpu on minergate. I should have more than 100K with GPU.

So, minergate see my miner, but less of what my miner can do (400H/s instead of 500), because the miner spend a lot of time trying to mine for the dev. - and 0 H/s for the dev obviously, and that not the goal.

Dev, for making a minergate version of your miner, you "just have" to make a version that send a login + mdp instead of a wallet address (i mean, for the dev fee) or mining for the devfee on a pool of your choice instead of mining on the same as user - for connecting to minergate, i found a workaround.

Hi Guys!

First Claymore THANKS! I think you are doing a really great job both with this miner and the XPM one. (I really hope you make enough for the effort and time you put in!)

I have one test rig where this miner runs flawlessly.. (I can confirm it is working on 6870,6850 @ 70-100 H/s/card only 3 GB memory dual core.)

I wanted to try it on a "real" rig.

win7, catalyst 13.12 , 4x 79xx..  6 GB .. newest 2.2 version (got it also with 2.1)

06/17/14-02:11:28 - SHARE FOUND (target 5000) - (GPU 0)
GPU 0, GpuMiner k1a failed -4
GPU 0, GpuMiner k1a failed -4

06/17/14-02:11:28 - SHARE FOUND (target 5000) - (GPU 0)
Error in server response
: {"id":1,"jsonrpc":"2.0","error":{"code":-1,"message":"Lowdifficultyshare"}}

GPU 0, GpuMiner k1a failed -4

But I get this error I have not seen anyone else reporting...

Anyone with an idea what I could do?

@Clayore: you probably have the best chance of guessing or knowing what kould be wrong. Please if you have any "feeling" whatsoever.

Hope someone can help!

It's GPU memory allocation error, I will update miner so it will show more detailed message. Try to set Virtual Memory (pagefile) 16GB or larger as described in readme.

This error appears very often when rig have low RAM (2-4 Gb), even when size of pagefile is more then 16G (24 for example). Can you fix this?

Running 3 270s with 1120/1500 averaging 730h/s for all three.

Edit: Just updated to 2.2 and that puts me at 820ish it seems. Nice :)

Edit: 830ish.

This is not a problem of miner, it does not use a lot of RAM or page-file. It is problem of AMD OpenCL driver and I cannot find any workaround so far.

Two pages back I posted the same problem with another rig.

For some odd reason some of my rigs show the wrong available memory for my 280x GPUs that have 3072 MB.

Below is the screenshot of a 5 card rig (3 x MSI 280x Gaming, 2 x Asus DC2 Top 280x). The rig has 8 MB RAM, pagefile set at 48.000 MB and has been running all other algos without a hitch in more than 7 months.
I wouldn't bother about the info in the screenshot below but each GPU only delivers about 150 h/s whereas my other 280x rigs do 320-350 H/s/GPU.

What am i supposed to do?

Side by side comparison of 2 rigs, all with 280x, above MSI and Asus, below 4 x Sapphire Vapor-x, rest of the hardware identical. All GPUs have 3073 MB VRAM.

Do you take in account that on extreme pool your shares "wait" 60 blocks to mature? afaik on minergate shares are immediately sent toy your account

For BCN, 9 hours later, total is ~70K for gpu and 57K for cpu on minergate. I should have more than 100K with GPU.

I managed to connect claymore to minergate, it works, but of course devfee can't connect to it.
Quote
DevFee: Failed to invoke login, retry in 5sec...
So, minergate see my miner, but less of what my miner can do (400H/s instead of 500), because the miner spend a lot of time trying to mine for the dev. - and 0 H/s for the dev obviously, and that not the goal.

Dev, for making a minergate version of your miner, you "just have" to make a version that send a login + mdp instead of a wallet address (i mean, for the dev fee) or mining for the devfee on a pool of your choice instead of mining on the same as user - for connecting to minergate, i found a workaround.

I received several msg asking me to give my workaround for connecting claymore to minergate.
I can give you the solution i found, but it's just for the proof of concept.

Claymore can't connect to the pool for devfee, so the miner try to reconnect every 5 sec, and after some amount of time, stop mining with a message.(something like 5 minutes or so)
Claymore can't merge mine neither, we will need a special miner for that (i think).

But mining on minergate with claymore would be already very good. The best thing you can do if you also want to, is to ask the dev if he could make a version which can.
Claymore is closed source, with 5% fee. I have no problems with that, but please listen to us !

Problem with the pool. Look at your miner and you'll see that you aren't actually mining (unless you're using the latest version in which you should check the backup pool to see if it swapped).

But anyway, he doesn't mine 100% after a few hours. Been running the miner for days now and it's solid and on the pool all the time.

Try restarting the miner than, dunno what to tell ya. But I know that Claymore isn't stealing, at least not by taking over the miners completely :P

Also, depending on how you set up your GPUs they could be just stuck at 100% capacity without actually doing any work, for anyone.

Yes I use vmprotect. Do you know a lot about it to state that it's the reason of problems with GPUs? If so, let me know more details, I will be glad to check it.
I always test both original and vmprotect versions on my systems and I never saw any differences for several months in different miners and other software I created.
For CryptoNote miner, for example, both versions don't work until I set pagefile 16GB.
If you have problems with vmprotect - miner will not start on your system at all because it does its job at starting only. If you see at least one line in console after starting - everything works properly.
The problem is in AMD drivers, they don't want to work with large memory sizes. Drivers just don't allow OpenCL app to allocate a lot of GPU memory at once. For example, 290X card has 4GB but OpenCL gives me less than 1GB at once by default. GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT variable is a solution (I can assign up to 3GB), but buggy solution as you can see. And AMD found a solution - today I tried Catalyst 14.6 and even with GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT I cannot allocate more than 1GB at once now. So they solved the problem ;) I have a couple of ideas about possible workaround, I hope it will help, new version will be available soon. Anyway, working with AMD OpenCL is some kind of magic which is much more unstable than vmprotect.

Hi vanja_z, welcome to the forum,

 

  Currently OpenCL users are limited to 25% of device memory,

 

I don't know where you get this from, perhaps it's a rumor, but it's certainly not correct.

(there is a 512MB limit per allocation call but you can allocate as much as you like)

 

I do predominately scientific computing and often need very large and fast memory so I am mostly using the 7970. On the 7970, I often allocate a single contiguous buffer that uses just shy of 3GB, the device limit. It's very simple, all you do is allocate in chunks of 512MB or less and make sure the chunks are rounded to about 0x4000 bytes, then they will be placed contiguously. Example, allocating 2GB you might have kernel buffers like

 

__kernel(global float *A, global float *B, global float *C, global float *D){}

 

Since this is C language and A,B,C,D are memory pointers, you can use A to reference all of memory.

Here is a printout from a typical program start:

 

open:devices 3 gpus, 1 cpu, device(0) = Tahiti

start(cl):ndevs=3 gpus=1 time=57.136

<readback of actual allocation map>

buffer 0 start 01D1E000 to 21D1E000 size=20000000  Gap = 00000

buffer 1 start 21D1E000 to 41D1E000 size=20000000  Gap = 00000

buffer 2 start 41D1E000 to 61D1E000 size=20000000  Gap = 00000

buffer 3 start 61D1E000 to 81D1E000 size=20000000  Gap = 00000

buffer 4 start 81D1E000 to A1D1E000 size=20000000  Gap = 00000

buffer 5 start A1D1E000 to B0E1E000 size=0F100000  Gap = 00000

buffer 6 start B0E1E000 to BF21E000 size=0E400000  Gap = 00000

buffer 7 start BF21E000 to BFE1E000 size=00C00000  Gap = ----  (last address on GPU is BFFFFFFC)

 

The last couple of buffers are different size for an unrelated reason. Note, I have not used GPU_MAX_ALLOC

type parameters and have never seen a need to. This also works on Cayman, and Barts devices but I prefer

Tahiti because the memory is so large and fast. Sorry, I don't know much about Nvida devices because I

usually choose hardware based on specifications.

 

Hope it helps."

I already use this trick, starting from first version :) And it works, but not on all systems as you can see, especially on multi-GPU systems. So I will try to improve this trick a bit.

Starting both Claymor miners is tricky if you have Kaspersky antivirus.  In both cases if Kaspersky is active aplication starts and computer hangs or even print BSOD.
Work around is to disable Kaspersky, start app then reenable protection. But in version 2.1 of GPU ( and sometimes CPU miner) after re-enabling protection process crash and stops. And sometimes only restart help!
So if you use some kind of software protection: change it... it looks like it is more damage then good thing from that.

And if I may to say: there is nothing so special in Catalyst 13.12. I install latest drivers and didnot loose even one hash/sec... So if someone has problems with 13.12 then tray later version...

Not so accurate...with my 290 I see a big big difference, because of the memory allocation bug of opencl.

The 2.2 version works on 6970 with 2GB ram, returning 120h/s
But it seems GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT  doesn't work  - the program always allocates the max 2048MB of memory. It has same behaviour on 290 - no matter the number i enter for alloc_percent it always allocates 2560MB

You don't need exactly a pagefile 16 g +.
Opencl allows use to only 2 g of the video card.
Windows occupies the pagefile as a mirror of RAM.
I mean if you are running only Windows occupied RAM is example from 500g to 1g , miner for 2 cards gets 1 g for Windows + 2x2g for each of cards, or a total of 5 g.
Leave a spare 2 g.
In other words, 8 g pagefile are sufficient for a machine with 2 video cards and 4g RAM.
This amount will increase proportional if you increase the number of cards as forecast a 2 g for each card.
Try and see :)
Too big amount of pagefile may have negative effect, decrease performance of system.

driver 14.6 beta seems to yield more stable results so far, useage does not seem to bounce around anymore, how ever it yields lower hash rates.... about 50H/S lower then 13.12 drivers on dual card setup so 25H/S loss per card at stock clocks. gpu max allocate seems to have no affect on newest version of drivers weather its set at 80 or 100 and even set to run via cmd prompt, seems to not register on the miner and it enters bad performance mode.

small update with the gb 280x's x2 built with elpida memory... still running stable useing 14.6 beta drivers, now the speed has stabilized it works out at about 50h/s per card lost so instead of about 630-650 combined its now 550h/s at stock clocks, i have uped the OC to 1200/1500 to achieve 599h/s so nearly 300 per card under heavy OC..... despite the heavy OC still stable...
so far driver 13.12 produces higher speeds of around 630-650h/s but is unstable and drops gpu's randomly, where as driver 14.6 beta seems to lower the speed alot, comparable to a mid range cpu and produces 550h/s and appears to be more stable. the speed issue could be due to you cant use gpu_max_allocate on 14.6 drivers causeing the miner to enter bad performance mode. Might be something to look into claymore, maybe rebuild the miner to work better with the newer driver as it seems to have better stability on the more poorer built cards... eg the ones that use elpida memory.....

I might be just lucky, but I am seeing an improvement (about 20mh/s). I have a PowerColor 280x 14.6 beta drivers. It is overclocked (just has it has always been) to Core-1100 Mem-1500. Running super stable 290-300 h/s.

Start with if you have elpida or hynix memory, that might be the difference, it was with my R9 290's. With this coin and several before it

So I spent five hours last night trying to get this to work with no luck.

I have an ASRock Extreme 4, Sempron 145, 8GB of RAM, 3x290s.

I uninstalled my 14.4 catalyst drivers through the control panel and then installed 13.12. I change my page file sizes for initial size: and maximum size: to be 18000, 17000, 16000, and 16500. None of these could make the miner work.

Is there a better way to uninstall the drivers maybe? Not sure how people are just getting this to work on the first try.

Post by: grendel25 on June 19, 2014, 07:26:33 PM
two-part post here.  1) my experience and 2) a solo mining question:

1.  I just loaded up the 2.2 miner a few days ago and started mining on 4x 7970 (2x Asus Matrix and 2x Sapphire dual x).  I get about 1460 h/s on this 7970 rig.  My other rig is just two 280X (1x Sapphire Toxic and 1x Asus top2cu) and it runs at 745 h/s.  So, both rigs are pretty close to what the OP claims as nominal performance values.  Both rigs just run whatever drivers Windows 8.1 loads up.  I don't use any special 12.2 or 14.x drivers.  I run no extra settings on the 7970 rig.. i just let them run at whatever stock is.  For the 280x, I set the --gpu-engine 1100 and --gpu-memclock 1500.  I'm not at home so I don't have my .bat info but it's pretty much just the basic stuff posted above.  Here is the gist of it, copied from Cr@zyheo above:

Code:
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
:BEGIN
start "CryptoNote" /low /wait NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://whateverminingpool.com:17777 -p x -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -wd 1
timeout /t 30
GOTO BEGIN
exit

My problem isn't with hashes or local performance.  My problem seems to be more related to pool performance and MRO payout which of course gets into profit.  I've estimated I should be getting 5 or 6 MRO daily but that doesn't seem to be panning out... maybe more like 4 MRO.  There seems to be a lot of randomness in poos selection or pool switching so that leads me to #2:

2.  Can anyone point me to a tutorial on how to setup a private pool so that I may test on solo mining with this 2.2 GPU miner?  Of if you want to PM me details or links that is fine too.  

Thanks for any help with part two of my post.  Hope part one helped anyone out there.

Edit:  I found this... but can't access it at the moment:   https://github.com/zone117x/node-cryptonote-pool

I would go to control panel, remove ANYTHING ATI/AMD related, make sure you get it all. Delete any folders related to AT/AMD video card on your system os drive, might even run CCleaner's registry cleaner a few times as well. Reboot. Reinstall new beta drivers, reboot. Start the miner up again making sure no OCing software is running or enabled.

I can't mine more than serveral hours (14-16) even with 128Gb VM

CPU AMD Athlone 270x
4Gb RAM
win 8.1 cat 13.12  GPU Miner v2.2
GPU/MEM 1030/1500 vCore decrease from 1.2 to 1.1
6 VGA

To fix it first time I set VM 16->128
Then I try to increase VM more, but it did not matter.
I set VM 128->16 then again 16->128. and miner work again)

So I left my 2 rigs running overnight last night but I when I woke up, I got this error and the miner stopped:

SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE DEVFEE CONNECTION. MINING STOPPED.

Any ideas how this error can be resolved? I have already checked and my WiFi connection is perfectly fine on both rigs.

Any ideas ?

If the miner can't mine for the devfee, it try again every 5 sec.
After a while, it just stop.

Maybe your pool was down for a (too) long time. You can force the miner to restart every x minute to avoid  that (make a .bat with a loop)

Are there any performance updates to wait for also ? Seems EC2 mining is still a big part of cryptonite  :-[ Network hashrate instantly increases by 10-15% once the price spikes.

You can add several pool in the command line (-o pool:port -u wallet -p x -o pool2:port -u wallet -p x )
OR
you can enter several pool in your pool.txt file (as the one wich come with the miner)
on each line, you put a pool address, and you specify one in your commande line + wallet + password

please read OP, and what the miner says at start : you need the 13.12 drivers to get the best performances.
On 13.12, i get 380H/s on a R9 280X. Only 280 with the same model of card and 14.6.

If I'm not mistaken you can not be using 14.6 drivers (beta) and the command is:

Setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 80

To whom it might concern,

Claymore sent me several PM's and one alternative beta miner of V3.x.
For now he suspects that me activating my miners remotely ("RDC'ing") from my vacation location actually might be the fault for the k1a-error code.

Yeah, no watercooling  :D MSI Gaming cards with fans @ 50%. I do run them on 950Mhz @ 0.9v as they are super energy efficient on those clocks and I only loose about 5-7% performance compared to 1080Mhz.

For all versions I am drawing 530w from the wall and the gpu's temps are about 68C. GPU_MAX set to 80 (85 was about the same). For me, XMR mining is 10-15 degrees cooler and draws about a third less power than scrypt or scrypt-n. No longer heating my basement!

Guys could use some help

6x280x Pentium Haswell 4GB RAM = 1930h/s
5x280x Pentium Haswell 2GB RAM = 2200h/s

the 6x280x rig is slower, is the CPU the problem? is there any -ss option for the miner? anyone with 6xgpus can help?

thank you

Ok, Did some thorough comparisons on my MSI 280x's at different core speeds and 3.0 vs 3.1.



R9 280x @ 70% fans on Miner 3.0


430Khash @ 950Mhz/887Mv/47c/ = 101W
460Khash @ 1040Mhz/956Mv/50c/ = 113W
466Khash @ 1080Mhz 988Mv/51c/ = 123W


R9 280x @ 70% fans on Miner 3.1


433Khash @ 950Mhz/887Mv/46c/ = 90W
457Khash @ 1040Mhz/956Mv/49c/ = 108W
463Khash @ 1080Mhz 988Mv/50c/ = 114W

Well, I think -1% of mining speed worth -10% of power. If you don't like it - use v3.0.

I just cant make my sapphires dual x 280x to work like it should.
4x280x is hashing at 1450hs.
Tryed to run just one and result is 360-365hs.
Win 7, 8gb, drivers r 13.12, virtual mem set to 16gb.
Interesting thing is that i have same results on 1100mhz and on 950mhz gpu core clock.
How can ppl run Asus on 450+ hs?

Hey just to give an update:

Tried 13.10 that MSI recommends on their website. No luck

Also tried 14.4 recommended from amd and no luck.

I wonder if its on our end or the programs end?

If anyone who has a 280x working well know of any tricks to try?

I read here 80 is best for some people... I find my miner too unstable at 100... Does 100 consume more power than 85 or does it not make any difference?

What does GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT actually do?

Marvellous, getting 1800h/s with my r9 290 cards! 29% increase!

The memclock on the cards were jumping between 100 (idle) and 1500MHz batshit crazy on 2.2 but seems a lot more stable now.

For those who wonder:

3x r9 290 gigabyte reference with elpida
8gb ram
have not manually set anything (virtual memory nor gpu alloc)
catalyst 13.12
win7 64


The only thing I really lack is temp and fan control, --auto-fan on c/sgminer is just too awesome with my rig being outside with shifting ambient temperature.

That means that elpida is not a problem.
My 270x with elpida runs at 330hs.
Looks like problem is just with 280x, only Asus runs great.

So I spent five hours last night trying to get this to work with no luck.

I have an ASRock Extreme 4, Sempron 145, 8GB of RAM, 3x290s.

I uninstalled my 14.4 catalyst drivers through the control panel and then installed 13.12. I change my page file sizes for initial size: and maximum size: to be 18000, 17000, 16000, and 16500. None of these could make the miner work.

Is there a better way to uninstall the drivers maybe? Not sure how people are just getting this to work on the first try.

I was able to get farther on this with version 3.1, but the computer was hashing at a slow rate and eventually rebooted itself.

What is the best way to remove drivers before installing the older ones? Maybe I'm doing that wrong.

ok just tried that but the result was the same. my pc starts locking up because it's using my primary. can i specify intensity with -i?

Maybe it thinks your main is 02, 03 or 04.

Try each one of those instead maybe?

I was experiencing stutter even when not using my primary gpu.

*edit same thing with 3.1, k1a failed -52 error

PM me full log.

Hey really appreciated for the fast response Claymore.

I sent the full log from trying 3.0 - this was what I had in the folder.

Let me know if you want the log for 3.1 - maybe I tested it on my other rig, I have two. Remotely operated, from my vacation location nonetheless.




Log for 3.1 from the other rig PM'd aswell

To whom it might concern,

Claymore sent me several PM's and one alternative beta miner of V3.x.
For now he suspects that me activating my miners remotely ("RDC'ing") from my vacation location actually might be the fault for the k1a-error code.

Will update if anything happens

Update -

Claymore pointed out that I only had replaced the .exe in an old folder and the new 3.1 .exe did not work with the old .bin -file. Solution - always start new version from own new folder.

It can take a long time before the hashrate on the pool is displayed correctly.
It is only an estimate based on what you send to the pool the past hour.

If you just connected, the hashrate cannot be correct, you must wait some time.

When using pools.txt, when is the miner switching pool - on first failure? Is there switch telling how much retries before switching?

On first failure, and you can test it easily, just drop internet connection and see.

Guys, I'm using version 3.1 miner which shows me 1,851 h/s on the screen but on the pool
http://monero.crypto-pool.fr/#
webpage my miner shows only 850 h/s ...
Why the big discrepancy? I can understand +/- 5% or even 10% but less than half.. its ridiculous, right?

It can take a long time before the hashrate on the pool is displayed correctly.
It is only an estimate based on what you send to the pool the past hour.

If you just connected, the hashrate cannot be correct, you must wait some time.


Thanks for the reply, and sorry for the cross-post, I admit I got testy when I couldn't see my correct hashrate display ( despite I've been mining for half a day in that pool!)

anyway it has since resolved. I think it must have been a temporary glitch in the pool's system. but i'll be keeping a watchful eye just the same.

cheers! :)

heavily underclocked and undervolted 5x 280xs = 1950 h/s

win 8.1 with 14.6b1  ;D\

not bad for a 750w rig.

I also have my secret rig (well, not anymore i guess after this post :P) that's heavily underclocked and undervolted and does 1850h/s at 600w on gold rated psu.

5x 280x dualx oc's on win 7 x64 with 13.12 (modded for 5gpu setup)

I'd like to experiment more with the settings but its just so much work for 1 rig (I had switched to nvidia long ago so all my other rigs are nvidia, but Claymore has made me see red again)

Cheers! Claymore, u da man! XD

Claymore - Any ideas on why some of our 280x are not hashing correctly?

edit: I've also noticed that the miner will start strong but after lets say something like 8 hours it slows down to fraction of the starting hashrate. I have also had freezes where it appears that it is mining but in fact is not.

Just some notes on  my experience. Hopefully feedback helps! Thanks a ton for your work Claymore!

Could you make 3 things:
1. Can you write, on what pool r we mining now?
2. Can you give option for minimum speed? If for example 3 minutes hash speed<that I specify, close miner.
3. Programmable amount of mining time? for example, each hour close miner, so we can rerun it ones more by script.

If you don't overclock cards it must show same hashrate. If you see big degradation - send me the log.

On 7950 MSI TF3 card was 340 hash/s, now is around 400 hash/s
On R9 280X Powercolor turboduo was 325 hash/s, now 354 hash/s def clock


Better results achieved on cheaper cards and 7xxx series.

Thank you very much for the reply! I will send a log if I see this happen again.

If there is anything you think I could try to fix my 280x issue I would gladly try it and report back here. It seems a couple people are having issues with their 280x's. I have another computer I will set up with the card to see if maybe it is my motherboard or some other hardware on my current machine that is causing the problem.

Claymore - IF I can help in any way troubleshooting this let me know.

Thanks again everyone!

Claymore's MRO/QCN/FCN/BCN GPU Miner.
=========================

Current version: 3.1:

- Improved mining speed by about 20% for all cards.
- Improved stability.
- Fixed some bugs.
- Reduced power consumption (compared to v3.0).

Link:
https://mega.co.nz/#F!e4JVEAIJ!l1iF4z10fMyJzY5-LnyC2A (https://mega.co.nz/#F!e4JVEAIJ!l1iF4z10fMyJzY5-LnyC2A)

This is POOL version.

Catalyst 13.12 is required for best performance and compatibility.

Set "GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT" environment variable as "100".

For multi-GPU systems, set Virtual Memory size in Windows at least 16 GB:
"Computer Properties / Advanced System Settings / Performance / Advanced / Virtual Memory".

This miner is free-to-use, however, current developer fee is 5%, miner mines 19 rounds for you and 1 round for developer.

This version is for recent AMD videocards only: 7xxx and 2xx, perhaps it also works on 6xxx. No nVidia support.

This version is for Windows x64 only. No Windows x32 support. No Linux support.

This version has no GPU temperature and overclocking management.

COMMAND LINE OPTIONS:

-o    pool address. Both HTTP and Stratum protocol are supported. You can specify several "-o" parameters to use several pools, or use "pools.txt" file.

-u    your wallet address.

-p    password, use "x" as password.

-di    GPU indexes, default is all available GPUs. For example, if you have four GPUs "-di 02" will enable only first and third GPUs.

-wd    watchdog option. Use "-wd 1" to enable watchdog, miner will be closed if any thread is not responding for 1 minute, so you can restart it from some script if
some GPU does not respond.

-ee    close miner if no more pools are available in the list. By default, miner tries all pools one by one, after last pool it tries first pool again and so on.
Use "-ee 1" to close miner when it tried all pools, so you can restart it from some script and do some additional actions related to internet connectins if necessary.

-dbg   debug log and messages. "-dbg 0" (default) - create log file but don't show debug messages.
   "-dbg 1" - create log file and show debug messages. "-dbg -1" - no log file and no debug messages.

SAMPLE USAGE

NsGpuCNMiner.exe -o stratum+tcp://monero.crypto-pool.fr:6666 -u 449TGay4WWJPwsXrWZfkMoPtDbJp8xoSzFuyjRt3iaM4bRHdzw4qoDu26FdcGx67BMDS1r2bnp7f5hF 6xdPWWrD3Q3Wf7G6 -p x

Do not forget to specify your wallet address!

FAILOVER

Use "pools.txt" to specify several pools. This file has text format, one address per line. If the first character of a line is ";" this line will be ignored.

PERFORMANCE

About 600 h/s on stock 290X.
About 450 h/s on stock 280X.
About 300 h/s on stock 270X.

TROUBLESHOOTING

1. Install Catalyst v13.12.
2. Disable overclocking.
3. Set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100.
4. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB.
5. Reboot computer.

ADDITIONAL

Claculate profit: http://monero.crypto-pool.fr/#community (http://monero.crypto-pool.fr/#community) in chat type "!calc 1000" to check profit for 1000 h/s; there are also "!worth" and "!price" commands.


Does anyone have a link to this that works?  Thanks! :)

1. Install Catalyst v13.12.
2. Disable overclocking.
3. Set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100.
4. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB.
5. Reboot computer.



Not sure if it matters but... what OS are you on?  I'm on windows 8.1 pro 64 bit and have the virtual mem set to 16 GB, also have 4 GB ram on the mobo.  I used the stock windows drivers so I don't use the recommended driver above but still get 450 h/s.  I don't do any OC.  Make sure you reboot your computer.  You may even want to disable/enable all your GPUs through the device manager.  Just open device manager (okay this is if you in Windows) right click your display adapter, disable and then enable it.  but really... rebooting normally does the same thing.  Good luck, let us know if it tunes up better.  6x 280X toxics should be 2700 h/s like you said.

SO I have some more input on the 280x hashrate situation.

I tried the 280x in another computer I had laying around and it did not recognize the full ammount of video ram in the claymore miner. It gave me the following output on starting.

"Tahiti, 2048MB, 32 units" Where I should have 3072MB.

Now in my main machine that the 280x is usually in I get the correct ammount of videoRAM of 3072.

"Tahiti, 3072MB, 32 units"

My 270x gives me this,

"pitcairn, 2048MB, 20 Units


So the miner seems to notice the card and everything. Perhaps I will try to exact drivers used on Claymores machine.

Does anyone know the EXACT driver revision Claymore uses?

- MEGA link problems: you can also download miner here: http://moneropool.org (http://moneropool.org) Though I did not check it I think it's the same file.

- Sources: my miners are closed sources, I don't open sources.

- Bad performance on 280X - start miner, wait 1 minute and send me the log file in PM, describe what CPU, Windows, RAM size, Catalyst you use, some details about GPUs (manufacturer, model name). Make sure you start miner directly, not remotely. Also try to remove all GPUs except one and send me the log for this configuration.

Post by: trogdorjw73 on June 21, 2014, 06:59:45 PM
A couple of comments on this for Claymore:

1) Have you noticed that this miner works better on AMD platforms than on Intel platforms? Maybe there's something else at play, but I have three FX-8320 rigs with 3x280X in each, and they all get around 1350 H/s. Then I have one rig with i5-4670K (which is often a bit faster on mining than the AMD rigs) and it only gets ~1100 H/s. The GPU usage also fluctuates a lot, like from 80% to 95% where the AMD rigs are all pretty consistently at 97-99% load.

2) It seems you've focused pretty much exclusively on performance with GCN cards. Is that because the older 6900 and 5800 series cards suck at the required calculations, or is it just a lack of time/hardware/whatever? My 6970 cards will do 500KH/s on Scrypt, which isn't that far off of the 600KH/s I get with a 7950; X11 hashing is a similar ratio. With the CryptoNote miner I get 200 H/s per 6970 compared to around 350 H/s with 7950. It would be nice to see improved performance on older GPUs like the 6900 series, but I understand if that's not possible.

3) Any chance of a BBR (Keccak Wild) miner, or is that not possible right now?

A couple of comments on this for Claymore:

1) Have you noticed that this miner works better on AMD platforms than on Intel platforms? Maybe there's something else at play, but I have three FX-8320 rigs with 3x280X in each, and they all get around 1350 H/s. Then I have one rig with i5-4670K (which is often a bit faster on mining than the AMD rigs) and it only gets ~1100 H/s. The GPU usage also fluctuates a lot, like from 80% to 95% where the AMD rigs are all pretty consistently at 97-99% load.

1. I have only Intel-based rigs and they all show good performance as described in readme. I don't have AMD-based systems.
2. I don't have old cards, also I don't have time for old cards, it would take a lot of time to support two generations instead of one GCN, may be I will do it but later.
3. Right now I don't have BBR miner. It takes a lot of time and efforts to create new efficient miner, BBR PoW is completely different from CryptoNote coins.

- MEGA link problems: you can also download miner here: http://moneropool.org (http://moneropool.org) Though I did not check it I think it's the same file.

- Sources: my miners are closed sources, I don't open sources.

- Bad performance on 280X - start miner, wait 1 minute and send me the log file in PM, describe what CPU, Windows, RAM size, Catalyst you use, some details about GPUs (manufacturer, model name). Make sure you start miner directly, not remotely. Also try to remove all GPUs except one and send me the log for this configuration.

Sent you my details. Let me know if you need anything more or if you would like me to test anything.

Again, your involvement with the crew of people who use this miner is outstanding and I am appreciative. I hope this 280x problem is an easy fix :)

i think and maybe i'm wrong the problem with old cards is just the intensity which is too high, mining cryptonote with those card is too unstable , i've some multi gpu rigs with 5970's , what ever clock ratio/mem i apply, randomly 1 or 2 gpu crash after a while , same thing happens in other algo's when high intensity is set, so gpu stop mining without driver crash

so maybe adding the ability to set intensity in future updates will at least give us better results, who knows

Claymore added an option Watchdog -wd1 which shuts down the miner if one of the threads stops working which happens quite often on my rigs.

do you guys know of any secure and free app for windows that can relaunch the EXE/BAT of the miner if it shuts down? like cgwatcher? but for exe/bat

Hmm, weird.

my 280x/7950 combo rig is slower than my 7950 rig.

at 900/1200, i thought the 280x/7950 should be a bit faster, but apparently not.

Maybe you should consider expanding failover capabilities by also adding username and password information to pools.txt file. That would allow us to also mine other currencies when pools are not accessible, and also to fine tune our pool -  wallet combinations if desired.

Strangely enough my mining speed decreases from ~1800 to ~1600hash after about 30 minutes of mining. The same problem is present on rigs with different configurations.
GPU usage stays at 99%. After restarting the miner the speed will go instantly up to 1800hash and start decreasing from there again.
This started today after moving from XMR to QCN  ::)

Now I will check performance issue on some 280x cards.

That would be really great.
My 7950 cards are hitting a higher hash than my 280X cards :(
Only the newer types 280X Vapor-X (with the 3 fans) get over 450 hashes, the older 280X Vapor-X cards (with 2 fans) only get 360 max.

Is the first pool in pools.txt main pool, or it only applies to the first one in command line?

Can you make in next version that it's possible to put -u address -p pass also in pools.txt file, and not only email and password? If -u and -p are specified in pools.txt for a given pool then that would have higher priority then -u and -p in command line.

First one is not so easy for testing, because of 30 minutes wait.

The second thing I already tried, I set pool with -u address - p pass, but it said something like incorrect command or smth.

I disabled bug reporting and it seems to be a lot more stable in 3.2.  I'm not having the negative results such as lower hashes which others are reporting.  I actually have a slight increase.   2x 280 rig is at 905 h/s and 4x 7970 is at 1780 h/s  (was 900 h/s and 1775 h/s previously).

Claymore,

can you please check your miner on 6GPU rigs? i tried on both of my rigs with diffrent hardware your miner with 5 and then with 6 280xs. same drivers.

on both rigs

5x280x=2200h/s
6x280x=1900h/s.

is this the cpu? on both rigs its pentium haswell
can you make any fix or improvment?

thank you.

300 Core - Occasional spikes to 500.
150 Memory - Occasional spikes to 1500.

All in all, really quite under-utilized.

This happens with multiple rigs, on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. Single card & multi-card systems. I'm always getting ~340-370 per 280x.

Contents of .bat file:
Code:
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 85
:BEGIN
start "CryptoNote" /low /wait "c:\Miners\Claymore CryptoNote GPU Miner v3.1 Beta - POOL\NsGpuCNMiner.exe" -o POOL -p x -u ADDRESS -wd 1 -ee 1 -dbg -1
timeout /t 10

exit

I've also tried various settings of GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT, with a reboot in between each value change.

500/1500 core/mem while you are mining?  That's awful.  Core should be 950-1200 constantly depending on what video card you have a good average is typically 1000-1050 core clock.  You should also use the "-di" command.  usage for me is -di 23  in order to use the second and third card.  starts from 0 and counts up so if you want to use your first two cards it would be -di 01   since you have multiple cards.. I don't know if that means that some aren't 280x.

edit: i've never seen a difference in changing the MAX_ALLOC... i just leave it at 100... idk why... for good luck I guess

If you have Kaspersky, or Malwarebytes, up to execute bat file Kaspersky will delete miner.exe file.
That is something Claymore must find solution because it is to boring to pause Kaspersky any time you need to exe Claymore miner

But be carefully what you are mining: currently state is
ducknote and quazar coin can be withdrawal to wallet , but they dont come from wallet to Bittrex
you cannot withdrawal monero
only fantom coin goes to market without any problem

Try set to 92-95

- Sources: my miners are closed sources, I don't open sources.

The cryptocurrency community was founded and is based around open-source software. That is a principle I firmly believe in.

I also do not believe you should do something for nothing.

HOWEVER, looking at the dev fees, and the amount of traffic on each cryptonight algo... I would assume that the large population of those mining are now using your miner... which means... you are making a killing.

I can't blame you for doing this... however, I do not see the point other than pure greed as to why you would continue to charge a 5% dev fee, when it is widely known that there are quite a few devs working on the OPEN-SOURCE gpu miners (cbuchner1 has one, albeit his own private stash... cuda only kids). There are many working on the AMD open source miner.


All I'm saying is... you catch more flies with honey, than you do with vinegar.

I don't expect you to do something for free, I wouldn't... but at the same time... don't be greedy. If you're going to charge a dev-fee... you might as well give us the version you're using that is all tweaked out and kicks out a shit-ton of hashes. Everyone knows devs keep the best for themselves, but it makes more sense for a dev who charges a fee with his software to give everyone the best, because that means he's getting more of a return when the dev-fee mining kicks in.

Personally I would feel 2%~3% fee would be more acceptable, as this miner isn't exactly close to the hypothetical hast rates and has too many stales shares at times.

So, will the FCN MM ports on minergate work with 3.2 fine? Or is even MM working with this new miner version?

Solve my issue with making sure the -u was needed to put the email account for minergate in the bat file. Thanks for the no help crypto world.... :P

On to a new issue: My 7970 isn't doing 450 h/s, but 370 h/s. I did gpu allocate at 100%. What settings are optimal to run is close to 450 h/s?
sure mm ports work, but you cant withdraw your coins...
i did a test, and first withdraw was in wallet in seconds, now they wont let me withdraw anymore.
plz be aware when mining at minergate...

I can withdraw FCN and XDN fine, but not XMR/MRO. I'll test throughout the day and see what happens.

So far, there a lot of negative comments/experience from others also. Always a risk with new pools that aren't completely established yet.

I am seeing a slight drop in hashrate from 3.0 to 3.2, anyone else seeing this?

3.0  472-476
3.2  456-460

Is this because of the power enhancements made in 3.1?

So the miner was seemingly stable for me, but I have yet to have it up for more than 12 hours without the miner stopping and rendering the computer completely unresponsive until a reboot.

It also goes offline from my VNC service.

Sometimes it works fine for up to 16 hours, sometimes it crashes after just a few minutes.

I'm on win 7, got 13.12 drivers, 16GB virtual memory, GPU MAX ALLOC 100 just as previously suggested.

I'm using 3x Gigabyte 290 reference cards with Elpida memories.

Excerpt from the logfile after computer gets unresponsive and miner stops sending shares:

On multiple computers the exe for this has apparently been deleted..  WTF?  Does it self delete?  It seems odd that I'd have some malware that would do this on multiple machines
Getting cleaned by anti-virus maybe?  Mining software is often flagged by AV as possibly malicious.

Yep, that was it..  Avast was running in "silent" mode, so it never even notified me.  Unfortunately I didn't discover this until I had unplugged my comp and used another one to change all my passwords to frequently used websites.

450 h/s in v3.2, 460 h/s in v3.3. Stock clocks and bios, 280x powercolor, hynix memory, no riser. It seems I have to check this problem only remotely with logs, so it will take more time to find the reason.

As a few of you may know, the majority of XMR pools have been DDOS attacked over the weekend, and as such, pool owners are doing everything they can to stabilize them.

You WILL see errors from time to time, as you may also see hashrate drops due to changing pools if you have a fail-over setup.

v3.3 is available:

- Improved mining speed up to 5%, depends on card, I get 650 h/s on stock 290x.
- Improved stability.

It seems I fixed issue with bad performance on 280x, though not sure, on my 280x it works fine.


I guess if you're going to keep updating as much as you are, then I do not see a problem with the 5% dev fee. You've updated more than any dev I've seen so far.

What I'd REALLY like to see, is an nvidia miner if you could come up with that. ;)

Other than that, I plan on ordering a ton of 270's (non-X) to mount into a rig. Don't suppose you could come up with a linux version of this?

Bet you could improve 10% or more by setting gpu clock to 1200 and dropping memclock.

Doesn't seem to be too dependent on memory speed.

Same here on one of the amd rigs...4x280x doing 1495h/s (maybe a cpu bottleneck?)

On one of the rigs I get an app crash, and it won't mine no matter what.

Have you been following the cudaminer/ccminer thread?  Someone got cryptonight currency working in ccminer but at slow speeds.  Right after that, Cbuchner posted that he got it working too but even faster... not sure how fast but it's exciting.  As I understand, there could be something for XMR in ccminer soon.

Yup, that is correct. I had to find that one on my own also, but that is exactly how to make MM work on there.

Hey Claymore,
             Why are you hesitant to make the miner work with AMD 14.6 driver? Seems like most miners out there gain a performance of some sort from it.

I have a dummy rig I can set up to give you TeamViewer or some other remote access to if this would help solve the problem 280x problems.

Thanks, but it won't help. I can buy a couple 280x more, but who knows if at least one will have this problem. I will do it if I'm unable to find the reason.


Try Gigabyte cards  ;) I have MSI,ASUS,Sapphire and a few Gigabytes. The one rig with Gigabytes in it is about 25-30% slower and also kinda unstable. I saw someone else here  also mentioning low speeds on Gigabytes.
Do you know why there is such a drastic performance gap between 280x vs 290 ? Is it because of optimization or is the 512bit memory bus giving it such a big advantage ?

When i start miner 3.2 - speed 830 h/s Mining time: 00:02
After:
speed 820 h/s Mining time: 00:08
....
speed 780 h/s Mining time: 00:12
....
speed 700 h/s Mining time: 00:16
...
and etc.

After miner restart it repeats... - speed 830 h/s Mining time: 00:02
speed 820 h/s Mining time: 00:08
....
speed 780 h/s Mining time: 00:12
....
speed 700 h/s Mining time: 00:16
...
and etc.

Why?
What my real speed?

I have the same problem and it happens with my 3x290,3x290, and 4x290 rigs. The hash rate slowly drops over time. I follows the directions to a T including redoing the entire windows OS and then installing on catalyst 13.12 and this piece of software. Not sure how others are getting stable 290s settings.

Occasionally I'll find them having been rebooted with windows saying it had an unexpected error and have to start the miner again too. So not too stable.

Claymore, please fix the pool switching in this thing. Pool ops are starting to call it the "Claymore effect." Pool goes down for a tenth of a second, and all the Claymore miners disappear. Since almost every bit of code used in an XMR pool is buggy as shit, it needs to be restarted every few hours.

I test 14.6 for every version and check its performance in details. It is not faster than 13.12. I can release two versions for 13.12 and for 14.6, but actually it's very easy to make miner use 13.12 even if you have installed 14.6:

Guys, I confirm the problem and it was at our end. We had a hardware failure yesterday on the main data center. Automatically switched to reserving DC, but unfortunately it's running too old monero daemons, so all blocks were submitted ok and all shares were calculated correctly, but we received much less XMR than expected.
Fixed tonight.
I'm very sorry for that issue. We do our best to improve MinerGate and provide better service for you.

Hey I know you didn't say you updated 3.4 to deal with some of the 280x problems and it appears to have to do with those cards with Elpida memory. Do you (or does anyone for that matter) think this may be fixable with a BOIS firmware update on the card?

I hurt myself the other day and I'm immobile right now, looking for ways to sort this out. Thanks guys! ;)

I have 10 rigs + other 3 rigs friend of mine, all of them are 4xGPU, 280x (Sapphire, Asus) 7970 (Sapphire), all sorts of cards combined,
but I never had a problem with ver. 3.x, which is most people stating in here.
For tweaking I'm using MSI afterburner, if you have low hashrates and clocks are jumping,
just try to give more volts.
I did not made any other adjustments.
And as well I'm mining with 2-3 threads with CPU on those rigs.
It's running full throttle and nothing is lagging, everything is running stable.
So I can say there is no problem at all with Claymore miner.

I would love to try any method to get this working. What voltage increase should I attempt?

I also would like to note that I do not have problems with the clock speeds bouncing around. Just lower than usual hashrate.
~360 h/s

edit: If you could check to see what memory type (elpida?) your cards run that would help me out too.

if you tell me how to check what kind of memory I have,
then I can take a look, and I will tell you then.
because I have no idea how to check that.

and about that voltage, it depend on card, for some is 1,1V enough, another need at least 1,163V

it is total mismatch in my rigs, some of riser are powered, some are not, some are long, some, short, some usb,
some mobos are with molex connectors, some without,
but you know how is it like, if something is working, then dont touch, or even breath :)

But miner stops after 3-4 h. mining and miner proceeds mining after restart.
Drivers not crashed.
HD 5850 jointly with HD 6850.

because this miner is clearly not designed for old cards, be happy that it works, and dev has not intention to provide support for those gpu's, it's sad, because, they perform as well as new gen cards on other algo's

imho claymore miner use fixed intensity, 5xxx & 6xxx cards don't appreciate it, it's like using -i 21 with a 5xxx card on scrypt mining, hashrate will drop

Voltages did not help with hashrate. I am now thinking it has to do with 280x specifically elpida memory.

There was a guy called "THE STILT", he did miracles with 7950/7970/280x bioses and vga memory timings, correcting bios (modding) he pulled out better hashrates from cards with elpida memory.

Don't know if he is still in business, but hoping he could help.

Claymore do u have any 280x with elpida vram chips to test our problem?
In other algos we use to lower the difference trought different setings for thread concurency and intensity, and gpu-vram clock.
Here we cant do nothing about that and it is allmost 25% difference.

709 H/s per 290x here, problem is after 16 hours of mining at minergate at 3.098 H/s i was able to make only 1,64 XMR (Monero Coin)

I switched to stratum+tcp://monero.graymines.net:3333 for the last 17 hours, 100% uptime and very fast, but still no block found on that pool cause im alone mining there, so if you people seeking for an stable monero pool, this one is a good one: stratum+tcp://monero.graymines.net:3333 (http://stratum+tcp://monero.graymines.net:3333)...

but still want to know how many XMR are you people making at minergate per day and your hash rate please

My rig: 4 x R9 290x 709 H/s per card at stock clock (1000 Mhz - 1250 Mhz)

@mirny GPU-Z - Graphics card tab (the default tab that opens) on the left hand side 10 or so rows down is the field "Memory Type"
Mine says GDDR5 (Elpida). I would assume yours will say GDDR5 (Hynix).


I have an update for people as well with the 280x issue. I have found a repository of STILT's BIOS for the 280 cards here:

https://mega.co.nz/#!45pk0ZiB!UXqe0mwS4HepxmIKAOpNtWNNRyoci_jD-bo49DTRb6o


Also, I confirmed that the flash was successful using GPU-Z and the card performed slightly worse and REALLY bogged my system up so that it was definitely unusable while mining. SO STILT'S BIOS is not working for me. Or perhaps the BIOS was not actually STILT's but the flash was successful according to the difference in BIOS enumeration and the fact that the BIOS loaded. I tried another BIOS I found online and it wouldn't even flash.

Anyways, that's all for my update. Anyone else having issues with the 280x feel free to try the link I provided and see if the BIOS in there works for you. I used the ATI flash utility to flash it. That I found here:

Hello, sorry to say but v3.4 still seems to have the Monero pool disconnect issue, been testing it against my pool (cryptonotepool.org.uk) so I see from both ends :)

Running cpuminer-multi and GPUminer 3.4 on same Win8x64 PC, with 270X

The stratum stops responding for about 10 secs whilst it waits for the daemon to backup its blockchain. Claymore miner doesnt report disconnect at this point, but stops hashing shares, 30 minutes later it says "no new job received for 20min", despite having received jobs for last 30min and not doing anything with them :) I then restarted the pool which caused a proper stratum disconnect, which Claymore registered, reconnected and then waited 30min before reconnecting and receiving new jobs, but not hashing any shares. Throughout that period cpuminer-multi only complained when the pool was restarted and it had to reconnect.

Looks to me like the problem is caused by it being unable to submit a share, but I'm not sure, since there is a logfile here are relevant excerpts, please let me know if you need more details.

Thanks! :)


Hashing away happily for over 8hrs until this last round, which is when daemon freezes but the pool stratum is still running

I should add, I believe from what other miners have told me that if any backup pools are configured then it will start submitting shares again after starting a new pool connection, so its not as bad as it looks here.

now I see, I had old version of GPU-Z, so I've seen just GDDR5 in memory type,
so I can tell you now, that most of cards are with Hynix memory, just two Sapphires are with Elpida memory.
All ASUSes 280x, Sapphires 7970 have Hynix, but Sapphires 280x, comes with both types of memory.

@kqpahv
I don't know your clocks, but when you set memclock to 1700 it shoud be better,
let me know then, because I have one GB 7970 and with stock (1375) or even 1500 Mhz it was slow,
but after that increase, I start to get normal hashes.

Thanks for the suggestion but that utter crap Elpida memory Gigabyte always uses will never be able to do 1700Mhz  ;D At least not on my cards.

After some research I can confirm that the reason of bad performance is Elpida memory type on GPU, not only 280x is affected but all cards.
I compared several 290x cards with Elpida and Hynix memory:
Stock 290x Elpida - 650 h/s.
Stock 290x Hynix - 740 h/s!
The bottleneck of CryptoNote PoW implementation on GPU is memory latency, Hynix memory is really much faster than Elpida. Latest GPU-Z shows memory type so you can check it easily.

Yea, it's really cool news!
Claymore, say please, and how much memory do you have (2, 4, 8 gb)? And what is bandwidth hynix in mhz 1600, or more?

Thanks! OK. And what is type of memory hynix? DDR3-1333 mhz, or DDR3-1600 mhz?
Maybe it's not the most memory, and its type of frequency?
For example there is a Corsair memory frequency DDR3-2400mhz.
Maybe the more mhz is better, 2400, than 1600, what do you think about it?

Minergate added MCN.
Currently 3.4 miner not support MCN.


it was a problem of the pool instead of miner.

Yeah, i got 1160 h/s for 3 - R9 290 on 14.4 (Win 8.1 64 bit).  So almost 400 h/s each one  :(

It's very easy to make miner use 13.12 even if you have installed 14.x:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=638915.msg7196535#msg7196535
Just copy "amd_opencl64.dll" and "amdocl64.dll" from v13.12 to miner folder.
Probably I need to put it to OP.

I have 3 rigs with 14.6, with the 13.2 opencl files in miner directory, 470H/s per 280x,2260H/s with 6X 270

Hey,

thanks for all your hard work.

I've been using the 3.3 version a bit and it seems hashrate on my 270s dropped by 1%. I think it's because overclocking is disabled?

Switched back to 3.1 and I'm back to my normal hashrate (1kh for 3 270s). Also cards are a bit cooler.

Can you bring back that feature?

Nothing changes with 13.12 drivers in miner folder. I got hynix memory. I will try set on swap 16 gb and test it. Btw can we mine without swap, i got 16 gb physical memory and ssd, so swap for me also is not good ?

I set 16 gb swap and nothing changes...

I have a few rigs running 4x7950 (msi) and get around 1900h/s, 475h/s per card with 1120/1250.  I also have a few rigs running 6x290 (sapphire) with 1100/1300 getting around 3900h/s, 650h/s per card.

I have tried upping memory but see very little changes in speed compared to say scrypt mining so performance/power suits myself best with those clocks.

is it normal that I have 493 h/s on 7950 with 14.6 driver?..


No thats not normal  ;D Thats too good to be true...
Nvidia performace is still crap compared to AMD  ;)

yes, I saw others results and I understood that my hashrate is to big, but...
http://i62.fastpic.ru/big/2014/0626/a8/c0fa6b05a14511952a161884b7fa48a8.png
I have only Asus 7950 (1150/1600) - I assure you guys
And as I can see in pool stats - that is real speed

1150/1600 - That's a cause. So nothing special...

6x290 @ 1100/1300 http://i.imgur.com/uOxc0Sl.png

3.1 miner was very stable for myself, have updated them to 3.4 miner and it looks as stable but with the added bonus of going back to main pool.  All rigs are running windows 7x64, 13.12 cats, 8GB RAM and 16GB pagefile.  For the 6 card rigs I'm using the 13.12 mod https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=11761.0 (https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=11761.0), that trick has also worked on one of my rigs with 4x7950 and 1x 280x.

I was running one of my rigs with an 8GB pagefile for a while without realising, changed it to 16GB and got the same hashrate, so not sure what that was about.

... let me get this right.

You're asking people to pay you for some trivial hacking so that they can not pay Claymore for some actual hard work, and thus, reduce the chance that Claymore will continue to enhance his software in the future?

There are many words to describe this kind of behavior.  Few of them are appropriate for a public forum, but you deserve all of the contempt you get.

(I'd advise anyone considering it to exercise extreme caution before executing that binary, but you probably figured that out already from the fact that the developers have no apparent ethics to start with.)

different difficulties?  I know I'm on a pool that runs 100K diff and looks slow but it all averages out to be the same.  all that matters is the h/s and that the pool is working

Strange, I cant get my 7950's above 420h whatever the clocks are  ::) And I am using the exact same driver.
Hell, even my 280x's which are 15% faster than a 7950 only do 460h. I can get Asus Matrix cards up to 515h @ 1150/1800 but I really dont like running them that high  ::)

you do realize claymore will just get around it on the next major update right?

just release the next miner with a speed update worthy to make sure everyone updates to get around this bypass program. if a whole 5% is such a big deal to you then you really shouldnt be mineing in the first place as its fee's everywhere you go, from pools, markets/exchanges all the way to USD/btc etc...... why is 5% such a big deal a the end of the day. it really isnt all that noticeable in the daily take......

1. I have enough experience in such games. Miner will work with your proxy, but it will cheat too, in several hours it will start to eat some shares, just 5-10% and it won't show anything about it. You can bypass detection of your proxy in miner in your new version but you will have to spend a lot of time to confirm that it works. And prove it to your customers. Since you have to have public "trial" version I will notice it and new version of miner will detect your miner again, and so on. Have fun :)
2. There are at least two other ways to disable dev fee, both are not too complex, so if some people really wants it I'm sure they have done it already without your "commercial software". Good luck in your business...

1. - May be, may be... ;D :D ;) But all connections are under control. Today, tests begin.
2. - This "commercial software" not only for your miner. It will develop.
For example: redirect from closed port and other variants.


It can become free, but i want to receive a certain stimulation at the first stage.

If you want some stimulation go do some real work and create a better CN miner and I will be happy to give you a cut. Right now you are like a filthy dog stealing from others and even bragging about it in here.

- Two builds: for Catalyst 13.12 and for Catalyst 14.6.
- Added "-a" option to select mining mode.
- Added warning message if some GPU thread hangs (use "-wd 1" to close miner automatically).

Ah my bad, my bad. I didn't read the entire title of the files cause I lowered my resolution so much so I completely missed why the v4 two miners are different, I'm using Catalyst 13.12 so its no wonder the catalyst 14.6 version of the miner didn't work.

You know I actually don't mind the dev fee (kudos to you for figuring out how to make a semi-honest buck in crypto), but now you've made it feel like a challenge.  I'm guessing there's a '% 20' in the code somewhere...

well version 4.0 and drivers 14.6 on 6950's seems to be way touchy, driver crash and thread hangs 98% of the time..... will test 4.0 on 13.12 drivers and report results.
asus 280x's 2x achieve 1068H/s at 1190-1800 and stable on 4.0 miner with 13.12 drivers.
x2 7950's achieve 950h/s at 1145-1250 and stable with 4.0 miner with 13.12 drivers.
X2 Gb 280x's with elpida memory do 791 at stock clocks and stable with 4.0 miner and 14.6 drivers. have yet to OC to gain higher results....

Edit*
Asus 6950 runs 90% stable with v3.4 miner with 13.12 drivers. 200H/s at stock clocks, 925-1200 nets 215h/s stable.
x2 GB 280x's do 401H/s each netting 802h/s at 1170-1500, OC'ed. High OC seems to not really be worth it given the small gain's from the much higher clocks... althou its stable for now.

Works fine on a HD 6950 with 2GB of memory, but the 1GB version crashes. Seems like the old cards have to have 2GB memory  or more to run proper with the new 4.0 miner.

My 5970 with 1gb of memory works fine

Technically that's a 2GB card, 2x 1GB 5870's.

Is your 6950 a 1GB or 2GB version? I have no problems with a 2GB 6950, but the 1GB version I do. The 6970 have has no issues.

monero.crypto-pool.fr --> Pool Efficiency: 113%

It means that we find more blocks on average than other pools or solo miners.

I would definitely mine at you pool again, if you have merge mining.

Do you have plans in the future to do that?

Hi.

I am mining since several hours with a hashrate of 8.5 kh/s but i don't have any XMR in my balance or wallet .

What happen ?    the blocks request a long time to be found  ?? ???

I assume you are on a standard CryptoNote pool, do you see your total hashes submitted increasing but not receiving any XMR? Most likely cause is pool not finding a block, you can see under the "pool blocks" menu - you will only receive XMR for green blocks that you have mined on. Small pool only finding a few blocks a day isnt bad, you still get paid much the same over a few days, just make sure you have backup pools configured in case of downtime.

If there are blocks mined but you have no XMR then something else is wrong, maybe pool admin can help you, or if you try mining on my pool http://cryptonotepool.org.uk and pm me in IRC (#monero - CryptoNotePoolUK) then I can check the pool logs for you and see if we can find the problem.

EDIT : it seems that merged mining lower the overall hashing speed resulting in lower gain...

That's impossible. Miners give zero shits what you tell them to hash, they just hash away. If it would lower the hashing speed, that's a problem with your implementation - not a problem with merged mining.

I detect this "software" easily and can improve detection in every new version, so I don't recommend to use it ;)

Not gonna help - what happens when someone makes a version run on another server? Or, worse, they open source it and there are a ton of servers? You can't blacklist them all.

It is a lot of fees.

Still, It fees dumping cost of crypto because them at once sell.

I'm against someone who can't even type a fucking sentence without sounding like a moron... let alone try to jip someone on their hard work... or try to steal everyone else's hash-rate or mining earnings... or whatever.

I'm not even going to dignify this little shit's software with a download and analysis. Run it through virus-total all you want. I can tell just from the looks of it, it's a cheap visual-basic program with a keylogger, and port-forwarding.

I could have written this program in my sleep when I was 15yrs old.

Your computer skills are shit, your English is shit, and your ETHICS are SHIT.

Go fuck yourself with a cactus.

I vote he gets the ban-hammer.




Claymore - I love fairy tales and do not like evasive answers. Test have 10 minutes - total hashes 206k - target 142k, devhashes 10k - target 18k. On hash - 5%, оn target - more then 10%. Draw conclusions.


Hmm... would like to see an actual screenshot of this... because I've ran his miner for days on end, and even did the math, and it still came less than 5%.

Sounds like you're just not happy with a working miner.

In that case, go play around with your pet rock.

Hmm... would like to see an actual screenshot of this... because I've ran his miner for days on end, and even did the math, and it still came less than 5%.

Sounds like you're just not happy with a working miner.

In that case, go play around with your pet rock.


boom baby lol.....

And my programm will be updated  ;D

5% fee - mining, 2% fee - pool, 5% - of exchange

Total:12%
It is a lot of fees.

Still, It fees dumping cost of crypto because them at once sell.

I against such situations.

I'm against someone who can't even type a fucking sentence without sounding like a moron... let alone try to jip someone on their hard work... or try to steal everyone else's hash-rate or mining earnings... or whatever.

I'm not even going to dignify this little shit's software with a download and analysis. Run it through virus-total all you want. I can tell just from the looks of it, it's a cheap visual-basic program with a keylogger, and port-forwarding.

I could have written this program in my sleep when I was 15yrs old.

Your computer skills are shit, your English is shit, and your ETHICS are SHIT.

Go fuck yourself with a cactus.

I vote he gets the ban-hammer.


Not supporting him, as he probably can't code for shit - but don't bash people for probably not speaking English natively.

And let's be fair - anyone bypassing Claymore's fee now isn't being unfair in the slightest. What he's getting paid is STUPID disproportionate to the amount of work. $10k or $20k would be plenty. He's no doubt made more than $100k at peak XMR prices and is showing no signs of stopping. Maybe he's dumping, maybe he's not, but he IS hurting Monero.

I'm sorry, but I used to think that way, until I've seen Claymore pump out more than 5 updates in the past week alone. Which is more than I can say for any other miner dev out there... unless they edited their git files late at night drunk and screwed it to hell.

What you're failing to see here Wolf0, is that he's not using open-source software, and he's definitely not using a branch of someone else's software. (If he is, that's his problem.)

The fact of the matter is, he's the first and ONLY AMD GPU MINER RELEASE that has come out for Cryptonight algo.

What you want, is a cookie. What I want, is to mine, and keep the dev happy, and have him keep improving the program.

He has good reason to. The faster he can get his miner to mine, the faster all the users can mine, the more money he makes. Makes perfect sense to be in his shoes.

Do I TOTALLY agree with how he does it? No. Do I think he made a very smart financial move? Hell yes. Did he hide it? Did he steal it? No.


As far as bashing someone who can't speak English natively... speaking is entirely different from writing my friend.
I've seen someone who couldn't speak a proper sentence in English (foreign student) to save their life write a 600 page term paper without a single error... and even beat me.

I'm not bashing him for not being able to speak it... but I am bashing him for coming into a thread for English language, trying to give people a virus, potentially harm computers, steal coins, or who know's what.

As said before, i understand the fee thing. Without any open source out there, it's normal for Claymore to make some money for his work - and it's a great work.

But yes, 5% is huge.

Now, the miner is widely used, and i guess his revenue as grown exponantially, maybe it's time to low a bit this fee ?
If he doesn't, we will surely see in a very near future tools or how-to to remove and/or not pay the fee at all.

I've done several speed optimizations, I believe four, in a day. And yeah, it sucks that nobody donates, so I'm not bitching about his fee. I'm saying, he posted this on June 4th. Today is the 30th. Do you really, REALLY think that $100,000+ USD is fair compensation - even if he was working, say, 8h/day minus weekends?

1. Do you really think that I earned 100K$ on this miner? :) I got in many times less. Anyway, it is good but not huge amount for me, I have a good experience in some areas and my hour rate is expensive. You can confirm my experience easily. It seems you are good developer - create faster AMD miner (or with same speed) and I will reduce/remove dev fee, competition is the most natural way of regulation. But of course talking/calculation about my fee is a lot easier than making miner-competitor.
2. Do you really think that I created this miner on June 4th, within one day? :)

I think at the peak, you would have probably made ~$100k worth or XMR. I don't think it would be hard to create a faster one off of existing code - but all new code takes time. About 2, you do make a good point - probably took you a while before that.

You're going to start an arms race soon - a lot of people are upset about 5% on such a widely used miner. Both pools and individuals are responding to this. Sure, you can ban pools, but they can set up proxies faster than you can get people to update.

just remove the fee or pools will
-- Claymore fees cut --
50% of Claymore fees will be taken and given back to miners. Starting now.
Mining is becoming harder and harder. Profit is getting lower and lower while fees remain the same.
It is not sustainable for a private GPU miner to keep such high fees while most of miners aren't making any profit.
 -- Dev donation --
10% of pool gain will be given to devs.
We are not going to add fees to miners so we'll make donation from our gain.
     http://i.picresize.com/images/2014/06/29/betxH.png (http://monero.crypto-pool.fr)
please cut 100% of Claymore fees

To be clear, I didn't cut the Claymore fees because most people were opposed to it on IRC.
Everyone want lower fees but they feel that taking it from Claymore is stealing.

So the only that can really lower fees is the dev himself.

You guys bitch too much about dev fees, but cry like hell when nobody donates because you worked so hard.

1. Wolf0, you used an open-source program to make your miner. Claymore wrote his own. When you can write your own, and see how long it takes for it to be written, and maintain/update it as often as he has, and do all this in good faith that the community will donate to you... then you would have a leg to stand on in this argument.

The only reason I am defending claymore at the moment, is because 1.. he was the first to write it... 2.. his time is valuable... and 3.. 5%, after doing all the math, is NOT that much.

All you pool devs take 0.5-3% in mining fees... now take into account how many miners you have on  your pool... and how often you find blocks... you can't say shit about how much he makes off his dev fees.

If I mined at one of your pools for 20 hours... he gets 1 hour, split into small sessions over that period of time... mined for himself... and it BARELY affects my hashrate to the pool... and YOU are still getting paid.


All you open-source devs... you want to bitch about it so much? Make something better, and stop complaining. The man said he would reduce or remove the dev fees completely if someone can make a faster miner.

He wrote his own code, so guess what you're stuck doing.

Port that shit over from the cpu-miner like tsiv did for ccminer. Shouldn't be too hard, cgminer was all originally based off a cpu-miner.

people crying about fees  ::)

I did the next best thing...not mining xmr. If it is profitable enough for you i dont see a problem. My problem with cn coins is miner fee + pool fees + rejected shares + orphaned blocks + unreliable pools(or not finding blocks at all) + price droping = not even half of what profitability calc say i should get.

first pool have break the ice as blocking fees for showing it can be done.
it is now only matter of time other pools to ban the fee, permanenty
you will soon see first good pool blocking fees rising with their hashrates to the roof.
whos pool will it be?

I can stop mantaining my miners and don't release new ones, the only reason I do this job is dev fee.
It seems you would prefer not to have CryptoNote AMD GPU miner at all, it's up to you. The only reason you have it is dev fee.
There is another solution - create private miner and mine coins on a lot of aws servers, get 30-50% of ALL coins. You know this way works for BBR.
Is it better than my approach? I can do similar thing, but I don't like it and I'm not going to do it, that's what I call unfair. IMO, dev fee is much better.

running a pool is far from beeing easy, it's quite a load of stress, of devotion, of beeing involved, answer miners emails/requests..
so complaining about fee is really not welcome..
beside what most people think, fee should NOT be 0%, but 1 or 2%..

about developing a full mining tool, or even using some open sources to build/make better another mining tool, it's about the same : time, complain, stress..

so accept fees.. this is really welcome..

I think people have to make a compromise. Claymore will not remove fees.
Fees are not really the problem. High-fees are the problem. It makes people feel it's unfair.

People accept 2% fees on pool, what about lowering the miner fees to 2% too ?
