Title: [ANN][Groestl/MyriadGroestl] Pool closed
Post by: srcxxx on June 15, 2014, 09:58:46 AM
grs-sgminer is a OpenCL optimized miner for coins using Groestl and MyriadGroestl algo (Groestlcoin, Diamond, Myriadcoin, Saffroncoin, etc).

Notice: cryptohunger.com:81 and grs-sgminer are going to be retired on 31 October 2014. Please migrate to boostpool.com before 30 September See details here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=770959).

Note: boostpool.com with auto payouts in BTC and GRS is currently in Beta (official release date: 22 September). No exchange fee until 22 September and BTC payouts are allowed (just use your BTC address to log in instead of GRS address). Details: boostpool.com (http://boostpool.com) BoostPool now has a separate BTC talk page (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=770959).

Speed with Groestl mining:

R9 290 - 20.5 MH/s (14.4MH/s if using standard sph-sgminer with 14.6 beta AMD drivers and 9.5MH/s on drivers prior to 14.6)
R9 270X - 10 MH/s
R9 280X - 16 MH/s (some only report 12MH/s, see details below. Probably you need 13.12 driver)

Speed with Myriad-Groestl (Myriadcoin, Saffroncoin, Futurecoin) mining:

R9 290 - 34.2 MH/s

Github: https://github.com/BoostPool/boost-sgminer (https://github.com/BoostPool/boost-sgminer)
Twitter (to get updates on new versions): https://twitter.com/CryptoHunger (https://twitter.com/CryptoHunger)


Version 1.4.0 (17 August 2014)
* Windows build (https://github.com/BoostPool/boost-sgminer/releases/download/1.4.0/grs-sgminer1_4_0.zip)
* switch between Groestlcoin and Myriadcoin-groestl on the fly without restarding the miner
* 5% more hashrate in optimized kernel

Version 1.3.1 (10 July 2014)
* Added support for a wide range of AMD videocards (more .bop files in the package)
* packed with 7zip now (http://http://www.7-zip.org/)

Version 1.3.0 (7 July 2014)
* Added myriadcoin groestl support (see example-myriad.conf)
* Removed "l4" suffix from .bop filenames

Version 1.2.5 (25 June 2014)
* Added R9 290 optimized Kernel for Tahiti, Pitcairn and Hawaii GPUs
* Shows a warning if "optimized" kernel is used with incorrect pool



* BAMT setup instructions (http://groestlcoin.org/forum/index.php?topic=12.0) (see step "6a").

*** Example command line ***
Groestlcoin (20.5 MH/s on R9 290): sgminer.exe -k optimized -o stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:50001 -u FnzMEE2fkX31J5EjheNMo8pq2672Q5kjGh -p xxx -I 22 -w 256

Myriadcoin (34.2 MH/s on R9 290): sgminer.exe -k myriadcoin-optimized -o stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:60001 -u MUbwYW4NmmkR4Ejg5v7tQye5DW5jSQVz3X -p xxx -I 22 -w 256

Diamondcoin (20.5 MH/s on R9 290): sgminer.exe -k optimized -o stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:50002 -u dSwcxqXiYrZehaiy6sKfQv1NyEtxTXrmrz -p xxx -I 22 -w 256 --normal-hashing true


*** Release highlights ***
* Built-in Diamondcoin support (via a "normal-hashing" per-pool parameter, see example.conf)
* Automatically sets proper difficulty multiplier (not required to write --difficulty-multiplier 0.0039062500 anymore)
* thread-concurrency and lookup-gap parameters are not used anymore
* Added "optimized" kernel, see below

Attention Diamondcoin miners:
* You need to specify --normal-hashing true parameter on the command line or in the .conf file (see example.conf)

!!! Optimized kernel binaries (about 5%-25% better hashrate than if you don't use them) !!!
You need to use "-k optimized" instead of "-k groestlcoin" in command line parameters.

Note: "optimized" kernel only works with these stratums:
   {
      "url" : "stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:50001",
      "user" : "FnzMEE2fkX31J5EjheNMo8pq2672Q5kjGh",

      "pass" : "xxx",
      "poolname" : "AidBitOptimized"
   }

Note: "myriadcoin-optimized" kernel only works with these stratums:
   {
      "url" : "stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:60001",
      "user" : "MUbwYW4NmmkR4Ejg5v7tQye5DW5jSQVz3X",

      "poolname" : "DigiByteOptimized"
   }

They do not work with any other pools. They do not work with cryptohunger.com:3333 either. You'll get HW errors and no accepted shares.
See statistics here: http://cryptohunger.com:81 (http://cryptohunger.com:81). Payouts every hour. Just use your wallet as login.

You can see your payouts list in CSV format here: http://cryptohunger.com/stats/ (http://cryptohunger.com/stats/)


Please use https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hTOUdJZrKqrNDXTIbXgNvJtj_fnpECREcs-eHxaGrZc/edit?usp=sharing (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hTOUdJZrKqrNDXTIbXgNvJtj_fnpECREcs-eHxaGrZc/edit?usp=sharing) to fill in your "Groestl" parameters.

Note: With Groestl and Myriad Groestl algorithms, you usually can overclock GPU quite significally. For example, I'm using 1170Mhz on R9 290 (where standard frequency is 1000Mhz).
This happens because these algorithms don't use power hungry memory exchange operations and thus GPU produces less heat and stays within TDP bounds.

Make sure you are using 14.6 AMD drivers for R9 290 and R9 270X. And make sure your are using 13.12 drivers for R9 280X (other driver versions give lower hashrate).
Note: you can compile .bin files in with one version of drivers and execute miner while another version is installed.

Notice: OpenCL source code for optimized groestl kernel is not open source.
I am ready to exclusively sell the source code and the cryptohunger.com pool for 10 BTC (opensource or keep to yourself the kernel; use the pool or close it and be the only one using the optimized kernel).

Please provide more details. Config/command line, screenshot of sgminer or printout. What's the rejection reason? Share below target?

If your sgminer tried to submit the share, it means hashing is working fine.
If you had a 100% hardware error rate, then it would mean it is not working.

Are you mining ATH on suprnova by any chance?

Thanks

You are mining diamond coin but haven't supplied the normal-hashing parameter. See 1st post in this topic.

You need to add --normal-hashing to your command line.

I'm on Xubuntu 12.04. Updated drivers to 14.6. I lost hashing power. Reverted to pevious drivers.

If you could provide name/model of video card, it would be great.

Looks like R9 280X works faster with older drivers.

While R9 290 and R9 270X definitely work better with 14.6.

It'd be nice to have some kind of list and I'm planning to do this.

What's important is that you can compile .bin files with one version of drivers and use the miner in another version of drivers.

I myself use BAMT and it has 13.12 drivers. But the .bin files that I compiled on Windows 14.6 work 80% faster.

Optimized kernel binaries are now available! See first post.

Extra hashrate for supported video cards.


Title: Re: [ANN][Groestl] Optimized OpenCL kernel Groestlcoin/Diamondcoin miner
Post by: pallas on June 16, 2014, 09:27:10 AM
srcxxx, may I suggest you remove the thread concurrency (and lookup gap, and vectors...) from the filename, so the files are ok for everyone, regardless?
I did this myself in sph-sgminer in the past, it's much convenient. The only downside is it's not compatible with scrypt.
I can provide details if you wish.

Sorry should have made that clearer. I'm running on R9 280x. I lost half a day installing those dam drivers to end up installing the previous one. 14.6 did nothing good for me.

See post https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=652849.msg7339919#msg7339919 above
Probably because R9 280X is just a rebranded 7970. So it is using some old AMD designs.

New models like R9 290 and R9 270X definitely work faster on 14.6 drivers.

This is when the compiled binaries become interesting (see above).

Hi!

Your parameters are not optimal.
Try to rename example.conf to sgminer.conf and run without command line params.
That example.conf is exactly my config file for R9 290

You need to increase intensity and increase gpu clock from default 947 to around 1050.

What are the righ settings for 290s? i only get 13mh/s per card i have the 14.6 beta drive win64, and this are my configurations:
Code:
-k groestlcoin -o stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:50003 -u AUQYw1YzJuyqT8H6As5qCLXEzUWskrJgYe -p x --lookup-gap 2 -I 19 -g 1 -w 128 --thread-concurrency 8192 --gpu-engine 0-0 --gpu-memclock 0 --auto-fan --gpu-fan 40-80 --temp-cutoff 92,92 --temp-overheat 85,85 --temp-target 75 --gpu-powertune 25

can you also post the righ confs for 7970 and yes i have tried docs.google.com/spreadsheets, another thing why i cant control the speed of my gpu fans?...

Hi!

Your parameters are not optimal.
Try to rename example.conf to sgminer.conf and run without command line params.
That example.conf is exactly my config file for R9 290

You need to increase intensity and increase gpu clock from default 947 to around 1050.

270x is only 7.8Mh(driver 14.6b,gpu 1180),how to running at 8.4Mh?

Hi!

Thank you for your tests!

Please try optimized kernel binary on your 270X. Will you get to 8.4MHs?

As for myriad-groestl, I know that it is not as fast. And that's why I'm not advertising myriad-groestl support.
But... I think I know how to make myriad-groestl perform better.
And planning to get to shortly.

You need to download the optimized kernel binary for 270X and use stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:50001

I cant get miner to start when using --normal-hashing in command line (W7 64bits). I am trying to mine diamond. Any help on this param?

Withou this command, miner is starting but get only rejects :(

Try to rename example.conf into sgminer.conf and run sgminer without parameters. Switch to diamond pool. Will it work now?

Please provide your full command line and I will double check.

Thanks

My .bat file: sgminer.exe -k groestlcoin -o stratum+tcp://groestlcoin.biz:3334 -u blablabla -p 1 -I 22 -g 1 --thread-concurrency 11200 --lookup-gap 0 -w 256 --normal-hashing

Should be: sgminer.exe -k groestlcoin -o stratum+tcp://groestlcoin.biz:3334 -u blablabla -p 1 -I 22 -g 1 --thread-concurrency 11200 --lookup-gap 0 -w 256 --normal-hashing true

Sure. I'm getting 16.7MH/s on R9 290 using "groestlcoin" kernel. "Optimized" is still faster, of course.

Version 1.2.4 of grs-sgminer is now avaiable. See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=652849 for details.

R9 290 speed increased from 17.1 MH/s to 17.9 MH/s. Other GPUs should get a similar boost.

* now you need to use "-k optimized" if you want to use the optimized kernel.
* lookup-gap and thread-concurrency parameters are now removed. They were only needed for scrypt mining anyways.

If you provided more info, like your command line, it would have been easier to pinpoint the problem.

I assume that you are using the wrong server. Optimized only works with cryptohunger.com ports 50001 and up. Please reread the 1st post.

Do you get any accepted shares in your sgminer?

What is your hashrate? What is your command line?

Looking for a good how-to for windows 7 and grs-sgminer.

I normally mine on ubuntu 12.04 but wanted to try out windows 7 see if I could improve the hashing of my 280x cards. I installed Windows 7 and 13.12 AMD drivers. Also downloaded sgr-sgminer and configured the conf file. Unfortunatelly only 3 cards are recognised out of 4 and none seem to be hashing.

Did I forget to install anything else?

I'm not sure what 0.8% fee you are referring to.

You are paid for your hashrate. The hashrate that is displayed in sgminer in "optimized" mode is already multiplied by the fee (so yes, the card is actually hashing a bit faster than what is displayed).

Hi!

I have two R9 290 rigs. One is 14.6 beta on Windows and the other is 13.12 on BAMT linux.
Windows is much faster (I just can't figure out how to update the driver on BAMT).

But in theory you should be getting the same speed in Ubuntu and Windows, since 13.12 are the best drivers for R9 280X.

Please provide more info. Like command line, the exact error you're getting, etc.

Thanks

Hi there,

I can provide more info tonight as I am in the office now. But the bottom end of my question was if, apart from windows 7 + drivers + sgminer was there any other software/dependencies that I needed to install to start mining?

For now I just wanted to make sure I've got all in place before even troubleshooting mining issues (which in theory I can normally figure out myself).

As a side note I am only getting 4.7Mh out of my 280x cards while mining DMD on ubuntu 12.04, reason why I was tempted to make a Windows 7 install see if hashing could be improved. What I've seen in the google doc shared document is that 280x cards get around 7Mh and depending the brand even up to 14Mh.

Right now I'm stuck in limbo because my linux install is on a USB Drive.  I installed Windows on a separate Hard Drive. As stated above things didn't work so I wanted to revert to my linux install. I unplugged my HD and plugged my USB Drive linux back and for some reason it doesn't want to boot. Anyways I need to make this work soon enough.

Your hashrate in sgminer is already multiplied by the pool fee. There is no other fee on top of it. There are no transaction fees either.
You are paid for the amount of MH/s you're getting in sgminer. Nothing less and nothing more.

All this is on ubuntu 12.04. Normally my cards are undervolted for other coins but for DMD I had to bring the voltage back to 1.2V in order to maximise hashing. Even had to overlock a bit from 1100Mhz to 1200Mhz.

For all people that have problems - I highly recommend that you try the example command lines. They work 100%.
Once you see that it does work, you can move on to playing with other settings.

As for the problem in your config...
You are using kernel "diamond". There is no such thing in grs-sgminer.
You should use kernel "groestl" or "optimized". For diamondcoin, you should set "normal-hashing" to true. Please read the 1st post for details.

"shares" : "0",
"kernel-path" : "/usr/local/bin"
}

And this is my hashrate:

Code:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[P]ool management [G]PU management [S]ettings [D]isplay options [Q]uit
 GPU 0:  62.0C 2282RPM | 4.772M/4.841Mh/s | R:  0.0% HW:0 WU:0.121/m I:13

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All this is on ubuntu 12.04. Normally my cards are undervolted for other coins but for DMD I had to bring the voltage back to 1.2V in order to maximise hashing. Even had to overlock a bit from 1100Mhz to 1200Mhz.

What you guys things? Seems low to me.

For all people that have problems - I highly recommend that you try the example command lines. They work 100%.
Once you see that it does work, you can move on to playing with other settings.

As for the problem in your config...
You are using kernel "diamond". There is no such thing in grs-sgminer.
You should use kernel "groestl" or "optimized". For diamondcoin, you should set "normal-hashing" to true. Please read the 1st post for details.

I did read the OP. I simply got confused with the miner names and didn't realise that grs was a fork of sph. I am currently using Danbi's sph-sgminer in which there is indeed a diamond kernel.

I guess I'll have to try out grs-sgminer see if that improves hashing. Just bored of having to continuously compile miners and all the related config that goes with them in order to make the rig autonomous.

As for the "normal-hashing" paramenter. It is not included in the example.conf file provided in the windows build as you mention in the OP. Should it be like this:?

Code:
"normal-hashing" : true,

Finally, and please don't take this the wrong way, but providing those binary files in the built is not a good idea for several reasons. One of them being that each GPU even same model GPUs behave differently due to the fact that each memory chip is different thus making your binary only truely efficient for your cards.

I didn't say memory was used nor that it was used in the miner. I said the memory chips (withing the GPUs) are all different thus each configuration is different. Part of those binaries data include how the GPU's memory chip perform thus if you make them with your own GPUs they will be 100% customized for your GPUs. 2 GPUs of the same brand and same model might very well not perform the same way because of the memory chips inside them. Hope it's clearer like this.

This is interesting information and that's why I'm asking if you can point me to some article on this. I really would like to know more about .bin files that AMD uses. NVidia .bin are really easy, they are clear text.

An interesting thing is that Piticarn and Tahiti binaries are interchangeable.

And you probably know how the .bin naming strategy is used in sgminer. So if you had two R9 290 from different brands in your mining rig, they'll still be using the same .bin. Not different.

I'll try to contribute to this discussion somewhat.
Just my experiences. Food for thought. When I am mining dark.
3 7950s two machines. One win 32 one win 64.
sgminer 4.1. x11 This is an example.
The Bin generated in the Win 7 64 machine I use in the
Win7 32 because its better. More kh around 400 by my observations.
If I let it generate in the win7 32 it drops. So I drag it over.
I've done this before scrypt mining as well. Some bins are better than others.
Whenever I mine ,whatever I mine, I use custom memory timed bios.All cards. all Tahiti.
Hynix memory on one. elpidia on the other two Ref sapphires. Tweaked for 1500
X11 Litecoin, dark ,diamond don't matter. In my opinion these Bios tweak it to the max.
My 7950s eat up other 7950s and efficient. Just amaze me really.
Bios where created edited By a user named Stilt. On the Lite coin forum.
I must have 200 bios. . 7950s 7970s some 280x all specific to the memory chips.
Now I'm hitting 13.70 on this win7 32 machine with a renamed Bop dropped in the directory.
All Stable. Kudos again OP.

I'm by no means an expert. I simply used my logic since when configuring a GPU in the .conf file it nearly always lead to having slightly different configuration values for 2 different cards (in order to maximise their potential) although they are identical brands/model. You can actually see it in the hashrate (above) of the 4 cards. You will notice that the 1st and last one are slightly hashing more than the 2nd and 3rd one. The 4 cards are 280x Windforce Gigabyte cards but 2 of them have Elpida chips while the 2 others have the Hynix chip.

Anyways, I also installed grs-sgminer. I keep getting all rejects. I've disabled tc, lookup-gap, changed to groestlcoin kernel, disabled difficulty multiplier and added the normal hashing parameter. This is my config:

Indeed. I did try the optimized kernel and it gave me ~3Mh more per card from the already 2.8Mh extra given by the standard kernel from sgr-sgminer.

Will the optimized kernel work with other pools at some point?

Notice for 7950 and 280X miners. And possibly for R9 270 and 270X.

If you want to achieve better hashrates, you might try to use the Hawaii optimized kernel.

For example, 7950 went from 12.880 to 13.700 using it (thank you Mister1k for this info).

What you need to do: download this file (https://mega.co.nz/#!FRZHhTTS!pkZZm61d7q1RkOmvL0N5sOEidbimabCGKRn0w0kcso8).

Rename it to groestlcoinTahiti256l4.bop and see if it gives you better speed.
Other cards might need the Piticarn or Cayman instead of Tahiti.

I'm sorry to say but looks like DMD payouts where not processed for a few days.
The problem is fixed now and you should be getting 0.1+ DMD payments frequently if you are mining.
I apologize for this screwup.

If you are one of the people that did not get proper payout - please send me a personal message with your wallet, hashrate and duration of mining. I'll check server logs and will send you the DMD owed manually.

Thanks!

Wtf, with 1.0.1 version it was working fine. I got 14.9 Mh/s per card (sapphire dual-x 280x)

With 1.2.4 version I got only 7 Mh/s on groestlcoin kernel. On optimized kernel I got 15.7 Mh/s, but the problem is my hashrate wasn't shown on the pool and I wasn't getting any coins  ??? (I was mining ATH on suprnova pool) When I changed kernel back to groestlcoin, it started to show my hashrate on the pool again.

So now I'm back to version 1.0.1

Yes, I also want to have proper statistics.

But the NOMP pool software is not created by me.
I offered the developer some BTC and hopefully it'll get added soon.

There's a feature request on github: https://github.com/zone117x/node-open-mining-portal/issues/295

For now, the payouts are happening every 10 minutes if you have 1 ATH, 1 DMD or 0.1 DMD.
You can calculate how much you are supposed to earn per day using calculators from coinwarz.com.

For example, one R9 290 should give 12 DMD per day. Something like five 0.1 DMD payouts per hour.


I have MPOS stratum running on grs.cryptohunger.com and I hate it.
It crashes at least once in a week.
And also there are 200,000 GRS in the wallet mined by all users I have in the pool.

So if my server gets hacked or broken, they'll all just disappear.

With NOMP - there are no risks. All mined coins are payed out completely during a pay cycle.

PS: I'm thinking of changing 10 minute payouts to per-hour payouts.

On other pools you'll be getting HW errors and 0 shares accepted.

Post by: srcxxx on June 25, 2014, 03:58:47 AM
Payouts have been changed to every hour.

You will receive a payment if you earned 1 ATH, 1 GRS, 1 DOKDO or 0.01 DMD.

If you have just started mining, please wait for 2-3 hours until your hourly earnings stabilize (because it usually takes 120-150 confirmations for a mined block, which is 2 - 2 and a half hours).

Once you've mined for 3 hours after starting on this pool for the 1st time, you should be getting roughly 1/24 of your daily income every hour.

Let me know if that is too far from truth.

Use http://www.coinwarz.com/cryptocurrency or http://whatmine.com/ to calculate your average income.

Thanks!

I have a question regarding those "incredible" hasrate increases though. I've set up an account at cryptohunger in order to test the new optimized kernel but noticed that the pool is not exclusively a DMD pool and all references are in GRS. It doesn't seem I am mining DMD in there although I've provided a DMD address. I suppose your pool is a multi groestlcoin pool. My question relates to whether the increased hashrate in cryptohunger pool with the optimized kernel would be equivalent if I was able to use that optimized kernel with say Danbi's pool?

It doesn't seem I am mining DMD in there although I've provided a DMD address. I suppose your pool is a multi groestlcoin pool. My question relates to whether the increased hashrate in cryptohunger pool with the optimized kernel would be equivalent if I was able to use that optimized kernel with say Danbi's pool?

Hi!

There is no account setup. Did you use grs.cryptohunger.com by any chance? Cause that's different. That's pure Groestlcoin pool and does not supprot optimized kernels.

You need to use cryptohunger.com:50002 and login with you DMD address. There is no account to set up.

As for Groestl references... It's just because I'm also the groestlcoin developer.

And as for the girl... I paid $400 usd for that photoshoot from my own pocket (see http://goo.gl/KE2xfO). So why not use it?

I created an account at cryptohunger.com  and yes I am using cryptohunger.com:50002 but your answer now makes me realize that it is in fact a P2Pool specially in vue to the fact that the login/user info is a coin address. Is that correct?

Sorry, what girl? Maybe you were answering to some one else. Anyways sweet pictures, sweet girl!! ;) although not sure how that relates to crytography...but who cares. Vitamins for the eyes!

If you don't want to mine on cryptohunger.com, you can still use grs-sgminer.
The "groestlcoin" kernel is slower (16.7MH/s or R9 290 vs 20MH/s on optimized kernel), but works with any pool.
grs-sgminer is still faster than sph-sgminer which only gives 14.4 MH/s on R9 290.

What about the power consumption of the optimized and unoptimized kernels?

Does anyone have some numbers for us? :P

Does anyone have some numbers for us? :P

Without modifying any settings except the kernel this is what I get:

Standard kernel: 4 x 280x = 695 Watts >> 14.5 Mh per card
Optimized kernel: 4 x 280x = 918 Watts >> 5 Mh per card

This is the total wattage reading from the watt meter at the wall so it also includes the rest (mobo, ram, cpu etc) but what is interesting is the relative difference.

Also note that in order to get the best of the standard kernel I would need to modify certain parameter in order to "optimize" the hashing.

EDIT:

After I optimize parameters with the stantard kernel I get:

Standard kernel: 4 x 280x = 790 Watts >> 7.7 Mh per card

EDIT 2:

Noticed I inverted hashing values above. It was supposed to be:

Standard kernel: 4 x 280x = 695 Watts >> 5 Mh per card
Optimized kernel: 4 x 280x = 918 Watts >> 14.5 Mh per card

My apologies. It actually seems that the same config for the optimized and standard kernel provide the optimum hashing. However in order to obtain the optimum hashing for the standard kernel I simply needed to switch pools to Danbi's. At cryptohunger's pool the hashing initially seemed to be inferior, that's why I thought I had to reconfigure certain parameters.

You can see my config above. I get equally 790 Watts for the standard kernel on Danbi's pool.

Yeah every card is different even if they are the same model and even the same brand. Mine are Gigabyte Windforce. Two are GV-R928XOC-3GD/F70 and two are GV-R928XOC-3GD/F60. 280x are in fact HD7970 rebranded.

You can't use the optimized kernel in solo mining though. Also, Thread Concurrency and look gap are not necessary anymore. Mem clock seems also high to me. Intensity works best with 22 in my case. That's for the 280x ?

Have you tried the OP's basic config or mine?

Hi!

the l4 / l8 is the sizeof(long). So looks like "long int" is 8 bytes on your system.
Are you using linux?

I assume that it works ok after renaming, so I can probably safely get rid of "l4" in the end in next release.

Hi!

Could you please let me know why are you solomining?
Is it some other coin? (I.e. not DMD, GRS, ATH, DOKDO) ?
Is it because if power consumption?

Because 280X should give you about 14MH - 17MH on 280X with optimized kernel.

Hello Srcxxx,

Yes using Ubuntu 12.04.

No, I am using 280x cards (or 7970 for that matter).

As stated in his previous post ATH payments are also processed every hour except when you start mining, the first payment will take place within 2/3 hours from mining. I have been mining DMD in cryptohunger pool since yesterday and I am receiving payments every hour now.

Auto pay doesn't seem to be working or is slow as molasses@ cryptohunger.
Two transactions in   7 hours from start of mining.waited 4 plus for first pay.

Any ideas ?  The whole groestl network way down. Coming back now.
I see a lot of unconfirmed block finds on Diamond.

I quote from srcxxx (post #82: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=652849.msg7500564#msg7500564):

"Payouts have been changed to every hour.

You will receive a payment if you earned 1 ATH, 1 GRS, 1 DOKDO or 0.01 DMD.

If you have just started mining, please wait for 2-3 hours until your hourly earnings stabilize (because it usually takes 120-150 confirmations for a mined block, which is 2 - 2 and a half hours).

Once you've mined for 3 hours after starting on this pool for the 1st time, you should be getting roughly 1/24 of your daily income every hour.

Let me know if that is too far from truth.

Use http://www.coinwarz.com/cryptocurrency or http://whatmine.com/ to calculate your average income.

Thanks!
"

I personally see no problem. Every payout is different every hour but the total in 24 hours corresponds to my hashing power (~60Mh) which roughtly corresponds to 25 DMD per day.

Yes I agree the website needs some more detailed stats and also needs to be a bit more polished. The Getting Started and API pages are also not complete.

Not sure why you are talking about blame though. That's a choice scrxxx did to select NOMP over MPOS and there is nothing wrong with that. Now, some people might like it some others might not, but then it become their choice to mine elsewhere. :)

What I see though is that most people tend to complaint quite quick whitout trying to figure out why things are the way they are. I have noticed in general that people don't simply read past posts or OP properly. Impatience. I also remember being like that myself.

Anyways, yes the pool needs to be polished and I beleive it's a priority.

Hi Guys!

First of all, thanks for your feedback. Both positive and negative.

Regarding the pool and the lack of statistics...
As I already said, I would like to have statistics myself. Pools like http://max.1gh.com/ and http://dwarfpool.com/tac have nice statistics and stuff.
But they are using some custom pool code and it is not open source. I.e. I don't have access to it.

MPOS is open source and I even have it running on grs.cryptohunger.com. But... I hate it.
Had too many troubles with it (BTW, I had to write my own stratum implementation for Groestlcoin which took 2 weeks).
So I am not going to use MPOS.

When you are just starting mining or switching to a new coin, you want statistics. I get that. But once you played with it for a few days, you just leave your rigs hashing and find something else to occupy your time. Just look at the 1.13 GH whale mining Dokdocoin (BTW, thanks for staying on my pool, whoever you are). I'm sure he is very sensitive to the amount of coins he gets every hour.

NOMP is a new project. It is growing fast. It is very good conceptually (very low server load, no risk for pool operator as all coins are completely paid out). Just about a month ago it didn't have worker statistics. Now it is added: http://cryptohunger.com:81/workers
There is a feature request for statistics in NOMP and I'm hoping it'll be added shortly.

I encourage you to give it a try with the "optimized" kernel. Leave it running say overnight.
In the morning check transactions in your wallet. There will be some coins sent to you every hour. That's your statistics.
If you are happy with it - please keep mining.
If you are not - no problem also. Use some other pool with "groestlcoin" kernel.
Yes, the non-optimized kernel is slower. But it is still faster than the sph-sgminer.

I am planning to continue working on grs-sgminer until there is stuff to optimize (currently I see 5 potential changes that might improve hashrate, that is without completely changing the algo, like ccMiner KillerGroestl's bit slicing).

This weekend I'm planning to get more hashrate for both the "groestlcoin" and "optimized" kernels.

Once it is ready, I'll post here and in twitter (https://twitter.com/CryptoHunger).

Also, if you are mining on cryptohunger.com:5000X, you will see a notification message pop up.

Keep on hashing!

Thanks!
srcxxx

@srcxxx

You asked why I am solo mining, As soon as my block gets confirmed it starts getting coin-age right?  Seems like an advantage over pool mining to me :)

Hi!

With a pool you'll be getting payouts every hour.
And the newly received coins will start accumulating coin age in your wallet every hour.

If you are solo mining, you don't get blocks on a regular basis.

Also, I doubt that a few more minutes of coin age will change much.

Plus there is additional hashrate in optimized kernel.

"But once you played with it for a few days, you just leave your rigs hashing and find something else to occupy your time."
Yes and no. Yes you are right. No, it's not a reason for not actively persuing improvements. People might not look at the pool every day, still people are investing in your pool and the future of the coin.

In anycase, for me what should be addressed in priority is the looks of the website. At least make it look like it's finished. Like I said the API and the Get Started pages seem to be incomplete and that for me is more of a problem than the current available stats. It doesn't give a good image. I rather see something little but well finished than a huge gas factory where flames are coming out of everywhere whole. You get my point.

As for the stats, well I guess patience is the word. The basic stats I would personally like to see are:
- estimated coin/day
- hashing history of addresses under graph form
- node uptime
- current coin difficulty
- payouts per address (this would give some more transparency to the project)

Anyways, good job. Keep it coming. BTW is it your job to code?

Thanks, I'm a professional C/C++ developer and specialize in 3D graphics.

As for the pool software... It's not really my thing.
I'm using what's available open source. NOMP is a community project here: https://github.com/zone117x/node-open-mining-portal

I don't think so. But it is your choice.

I think that the network is currently in a "not so good" state. And if you mine on a different pool, it'll probably be the same.

I guess I'm just saying that statistics may not look good for awhile.

I had similar problems with Groestlcoin when we hard-forked.

Ok. As long as the pool where people are mining is on the right fork then it should be ok...hopefully!.

Looks like the situation with DMD is ok now.

The number of orhpaned blocks is 228 and is not growing (http://cryptohunger.com:81/tbs).

I also checked the "getpeerinfo" and all nodes connected to the pool are 2.0.2.1.

You would be better off posting in the official thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=580725.1480

That is an issue the wallet has been experiencing since yesterday. The blockchain forked. Most are having the same problem unless you keep your wallet open, which is not viable for me.

grs-sgminer is a OpenCL optimized miner for Groestlcoin, Diamondcoin coins.

Speed with Groestl mining:

R9 290 - 20 MH/s (14.4MH/s if using standard sph-sgminer with 14.6 beta AMD drivers and 9.5MH/s on drivers prior to 14.6)
R9 270X - 10 MH/s
R9 280X - 16 MH/s (some only report 12MH/s, see details below. Probably you need 13.12 driver)

Github: https://github.com/srcxxx/grs-sgminer (https://github.com/srcxxx/grs-sgminer)
Twitter (to get updates on new versions): https://twitter.com/CryptoHunger (https://twitter.com/CryptoHunger)


Version 1.2.5 (third release, 25 June 2014)
* Windows build (https://github.com/srcxxx/grs-sgminer/releases/download/1.2.5/grs-sgminer1_2_5.zip)
* Added R9 290 optimized Kernel for Tahiti, Pitcairn and Hawaii GPUs
* Shows a warning if "optimized" kernel is used with incorrect pool




Hi srcxxx, many thanks for sharing your work with the community.  Version 1.2.5 worked as expected on r9 290 and r9 280x with catalyst 14.4.  When I switch to catalyst 13.12, I get the "Error: Compilation from LLVMIR binary to IL text failed!."  What can I do to correct the problem?

Hello scrxxx,

I've updated grs-sgminer to 1.2.5 today. I am getting the following error if I use the .bop file provided in the 1.2.5 version. It does this while loading (I guess for each gpu thread) and then sgminer starts fine. Cards start hashing ok too exept they hash less than with the 1.2.4 .bop file.

Code:

What are the righ settings for 290s? i only get 13mh/s per card i have the 14.6 beta drive win64, and this are my configurations:
Code:
-k groestlcoin -o stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:50003 -u AUQYw1YzJuyqT8H6As5qCLXEzUWskrJgYe -p x --lookup-gap 2 -I 19 -g 1 -w 128 --thread-concurrency 8192 --gpu-engine 0-0 --gpu-memclock 0 --auto-fan --gpu-fan 40-80 --temp-cutoff 92,92 --temp-overheat 85,85 --temp-target 75 --gpu-powertune 25

can you also post the righ confs for 7970 and yes i have tried docs.google.com/spreadsheets, another thing why i cant control the speed of my gpu fans?...

Hi!

Your parameters are not optimal.
Try to rename example.conf to sgminer.conf and run without command line params.
That example.conf is exactly my config file for R9 290

You need to increase intensity and increase gpu clock from default 947 to around 1050.

270x is only 7.8Mh(driver 14.6b,gpu 1180),how to running at 8.4Mh?

I don't know how you make 8.4Mh with 270x when I get 8.6mh with 270 dualx OC 1000/1400?

Quick question... Why is the Optimized kernel tied into exclusive pools. Something does not add up. Review the code on Github, a couple contributions and a hard coded link to a few sites with a multiplier.

At the end of the day what is your payout? If the code is an Optimization, it should be for all pools.

Are we missing something here? Some magic on the pool side?

Hi!

the l4 / l8 is the sizeof(long). So looks like "long int" is 8 bytes on your system.
Are you using linux?

I assume that it works ok after renaming, so I can probably safely get rid of "l4" in the end in next release.

What are your video cards? 7950?

Thanks

im on linux and this method worked for me too
i copied groestlcoinPitcairn256l4.bop to groestlcoinPitcairn256l8.bop

Specs:
OS = Ubuntu 12.04 64bit
GPU = 7850 1GB Pitcairn
driver =  14.6

Hashrates:
kernel groestlcoin = 6.1 Mh/s

My result on groestl:
radeon 5870 (900Mhz, driver ver. 13.12) on the original groestlcoin.cl - 6.535 Mh, and on the optimized groestlcoin.cl - 6.91 Mh = better in 6%
radeon 270x (1180Mhz, driver ver. 14.6b) on the original groestlcoin.cl - 7.5 Mh, and on the optimized groestlcoin.cl - 7.87 Mh = better in 5%
radeon 7850 (1050Mhz, driver ver. 14.6b) on the original groestlcoin.cl - 5.18 Mh, and on the optimized groestlcoin.cl - 5.4 Mh = better in 5%
Version 1.2.4 (second release):
radeon 270x (1180Mhz, driver ver. 14.6b) - 8.81 Mh;
radeon 7850 (1050Mhz, driver ver. 14.6b) - 6.24 Mh.

Second best original release by ~18-20%, but is rigidly attached to the pool Developer  :(
Version 1.2.5 (second release):
radeon 270x (1180Mhz, driver ver. 14.6b) - 10.2 Mh;
radeon 7850 (1050Mhz, driver ver. 14.6b) - 7.2 Mh.
...
More than 35% from the original acceleration - good, unfortunately it only works on developer pool ...
And when it will be possible to use it on older video cards 5870, 6850? ..

Heavily disappointed that the optimized only works on a specific pool. Also, why can you not run dmd without --normal-hashing true? I would like to be able to switch between grs and dmd pools at will without having to take that config in and out.

Yes me. Hint: Look at the name of the bop file provided, and now look at the error: l4 at the end of the file name is the culprit ;) simply change l4 to l8.

no error with 13.12 if using .bop file from v1.2.4


Hello Ladies and Gents,  I have the same problem but I solve the frontend error by copying the followings 10 files from the Catalyst 14.6 Beta RC2 into the main grs-sgminer folder.

The above 10 files are in the ..\Packages\Drivers\Display\WB6A_INF. 
Hashrate is slightly lower - 15.5mhs on optimized kernel .... 14.8mhs on groestl kernel, using  Sapphire 280x Toxic @ 1150 engine.  Memory speed is irrelevant on these kernel. Set it very low - the lower the better to reduce heat.  I set mine @ 150.

Setting memory clock at 150 Mhz doesn't change anything. The GPU's automatically brings the memclock back to 1500 MHz. At least it doesn't work for me.

Yeah, some people asked essentially the same question a few page back about the pool fee and so on.  srcxx never gives them a straight answer.  He only said somethings about " you getting paid for your hashrate....shown on sgminer..."     DEFINITELY NOOOOOOTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!

If you mine in these so called optimized pools,  you get robbed on 2 fronts. 

1) You only getting paid for 75% - 80% of your hashrate.   My rig of 5 R9 290 hashrate is about 100mhs on sgminer, but the pool reports a hashrate as high as 165mhs - the average is never less than 125mhs.  So I never get paid for the extra 25mhs to 65 mhs that the pool reported.

2)  You get wayyyys  less coin. <<< NOTE >>> srcxxx never discloses how much fee he charges for his pools.   @ 100mhs  I should get about 50- 60 diamond or 700-900 atheist coins.  The best I received for a 24hours mining is 45.2...... diamond coins or 560 something atheist coins.   If you do the math,  his pool fee is at least 10%.

And another thing when press for mining statistic,  he always give you the "software that I used is limited....lacking feature..." bull crap.  Hey srcxxx why don't you tell us upfront what is you pool fee and really give us the true hashrate instead of squimping.

Frankly,  I stop mining in his pool.  Yeah, you get a few extra meg of hash power, but you got rip off  big time.  Plus your mining equipments run must hotter and noisier ...  I can't stand the noise and heat generated from my rig. It's like scrypt mining all over again  --- DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE FEW EXTRA MEG OF HASH POWER  --- YOU BETTER OFF MINING SOME OTHER POOLS FOR MORE COINS RETURN.

1.) on http://cryptohunger.com:81/ it says:

"No extra pool fees (what you see in grs-sgminer is what you are paid for)
No transaction fees"

2.) you quote "you getting paid for your hashrate....shown on sgminer..." and you mentioned your sgminer is 100mhs, so this is the accurate hashrate

3.) at 100mhs and looking at mining calculator in coinwarz for 24 hrs mining you should get these amount of diamond coins at these difficulties:
   36.57 = 55 difficulty
   40.23 = 50 difficulty
   44.70 = 45 difficulty
   50.29 = 40 difficulty

4.) i would like more detailed mining statistics too but i have yet to find a NOMP that has one, this is NOMP source https://github.com/zone117x/node-open-mining-portal/
    maybe you can point to one that has this feature already?

5.) as for the extra heat/watts vs extra hash gained, i havent put this into consideration, ill need to make some calculations to see which is more profitable for me

with 7950 not working :( only rejections :(
same on 7970 not working :(

I recommend you read the OP. There are several things you should not forget:

1 - adding the normal-hashing parameter if mining DMD
2 - make sure you use the optimized kernel only with the 4 stratums mentionned in the OP. It will not work in other pools.
3 - use the default config posted in OP or available in the example.conf file that comes with the miner
4 - and most importantly, you should provide more detailed info. Saying you only get rejections is not very useful to figure out what you problem is. Perhaps posting your config file and a screenshot of sgminer or printout could be useful.

I don't see why with 7970 it cannot work. 280x is a 7970 rebranded so they should behave the same way. Only scrxxx can confirm this 100% though.

Hope this helps.

Although I understand your concern, I think that srcxxx has been quite clear on that, plus the pool does say there is no fee:

http://i.imgur.com/ENAM5NP.png

As for the hash rate, I beleive I am persoanlly getting paid for my hash power. You can not rely on what you see on the pool at a specific moment in time. What you see is not real time. There is a delay. This is valid for any pool. I am not even sure how you managed to calculate 125mhs on average. For that you would have needed to either refresh the page every 5 seconds or so during 24 hours and then make an average (whcih I don't think you did) or have access to the pool backend, which you dont have. The best way to see if you get paid properly is to mine for a full day, then add up all the transactions you got on a hourly basis. From there you can estimate the hashing power vs the average difficulty of that day. It should nornally match.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: after scrcxxx's posting in the DMD official Bitcointalk.org thread, there indeed seems to be a pool fee (see: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=580725.msg7611037#msg7611037)

Seems you are having the same issue than BusyBeee (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=652849.msg7556772#msg7556772)

1 - Try renaming the example.conf file to sgminer.conf first
2 - make sure you are using the correct kernel corresponding to the card.
3 - make sure you are using the 14.6 Beta drivers
4 - try again
5 - post your config as is please.

1- tried that..didnt work
2- kernel corresponding to the card? i am trying to use "optimized" kernel for diamondcoin
3- currently using 13.12 and dont wanna change unless absolutely necessary
4- will do ...curently on remote
5- using the example.cfg as you suggested ;) (minus oc settings)...didnt even change the payment address.

1 - What does "doesn't work" mean? Please be precise and provide an error code or anything that can be used to debug your problem.
2 - For 270x use groestlcoinPitcairn256l4.bop or groestlcoinTahiti256l4.bop
3 - As adviced by OP 14.6 Beta are the drivers to be used. Whethere or not it is a requirement to function that I can't tell. But others with 270x have been able to use the optimized kernel with their 270x cards.
4 - Noted.
5 - Read: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=652849.msg7411804#msg7411804
6 - Try using the .bop file from version 1.2.4. For some reason the .bop file of 1.2.5 gives me an error on my 280x cards. Not the same error though.

Finally have you tried using the normal kernel instead of the optimized one?

Optional but recommended: use your own address and try with only one pool to start with... ;)

If you need me - please PM.

I'm not reading this thread regularly and devoting all time to making a new OpenCL kernel.

I'm not aware of any problems and am mining DMD myself with 90 MH/s.

Possibly it is related to some troubles with the Diamondcoin network (BTW pool is using the latest 2.0.2.2 wallet).
The pool performs payouts based on the number of coins earned per hour. This is purely luck based.

If you feel the this pool is not transparent enough or is stealing your coins, please move to some other pool.
This is your decision.

Not sure where the problem is coming from, but I am mining in your pool, so naturally I come to you first. The network has been running ok apart from the assertion problem and the PoS on June 26. Since that, the network has been up and running. Consult with DMD team before making such statements.

As for the 2.0.2.2 wallet.... Well, I don't mean to be brutal here, but I was the VERY FIRST one to test it following the updated code by Danbi so I am pretty much aware of the update. Your pool went down for ~ an hour or so (on June 30 @ ~7.18am Bangkok time) when you tried to update the wallet (which is to be expected) and complained about the assertion problem which had been disscussed profusely all 4 days prior your pool's wallet update.

Quote

Payments are supposed to be done according to the hash power hourly. Yes solving blocks is luck based. So are you saying that we had no luck for over 6 hours? There was twice, no payment for ~6 hours in a row... I am not sure if this is luck related but if it is then everyone mining DMD in your pool should nornally have the exact same thing happen to them. If anyone reads this and mines at DMD at cryptohunger, could you please check you transaction on June 28 and July 1st?

community, please confirm or disprove this point:
on a pool of cryptohunger.com:81 first of payment occur in 3 hours, but on my supervision if to stop mining, that payments occur only in the last hour, and not as it should be the last 3 hours. is this true? I noticed it already 2 times.
basically I get every hour from 9 to 25 ATH depending on the difficulty, but if stop mining, that comes only 4+ ATH and all this for the last 3 hours.

"optimized" kernel will get myriad-groestl support shortly (you can already see me testing it on port 60002).

So it'll be possible to mine myriadcoin and saffroncoin (also futurecoin, but I think it is already dead).

R9 290 gives about 33.5 MH/s. Perhaps I'll be able to make it faster.

I'll keep you posted.

PS: Getting past 20 MH/s on Groestl appeared to be quite hard. I still am hoping that I can achieve at least 22MH/s on R9 290 using the current algorithm, but it'll probably be some time later.

Of course not. After all, this is a self moderated thread and I can just delete your messages if I feel like it. :-)
But as I said, I am not checking this thread daily. And if somebody needs my attention urgently (like if payouts are not working or stratum is offline) - just PM me.

I chose to ignore this PM of yours:

Why should I consult? I saw that there is a problem with DMD network.
I had the same problem when I was forking Groestlcoin.

That's true. But all pools go down for some time. Even danbi's.
I had the assert after updating to the new wallet and then had to find and redownload the blockchain.
To return to your question about DMD devs, I feel like they should devote a bit more time to testing.

Basically, I think that you are not missing any coins.
I was mining DMD myself on exactly this pool and did not get any other complaints.

As I said before, I'm running NOMP pool software and it pays out all the matured blocks completely without leaving anything in the running DMD wallet.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to rewind the graph to those dates. But please look at it next time you have problems.

As for these 6 missing hours, perhaps you had no internet connection or forgot about it and actually was mining some other coin or something similar to this.


Please don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against you personally.

It's just that replying to your messages and trying to explain myself is taking too much of my time and decreases my motivation to proceed with any improvements.

Also, I think it doesn't work in my favour and people who read this think that it is a scam or something like that and avoid.

I feel like you are not happy with the pool and non-transparency so I recommend that you return to danbi's pool.
If you think that I owe you 20 DMD or some other amount - let me know and I'll pay you.

Heavily disappointed that the optimized only works on a specific pool. Also, why can you not run dmd without --normal-hashing true? I would like to be able to switch between grs and dmd pools at will without having to take that config in and out.

Normal hashing parameter was introduced exactly for this reason. To be able to switch between grs and dmd pools in realtime.

See example.conf. You also should be able to specify normal-hashing true, false in command line if you are specifying two pools: dmd and grs

Memory speed is irrelevant on these kernel. Set it very low - the lower the better to reduce heat.  I set mine @ 150.

Setting memory clock at 150 Mhz doesn't change anything. The GPU's automatically brings the memclock back to 1500 MHz. At least it doesn't work for me.

Some cards cannot go as low as 150.
Try to find your minimum value. It could be 900 or 1150. You'll have to experiment

EDIT: after scrcxxx's posting in the DMD official Bitcointalk.org thread, there indeed seems to be a pool fee (see: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=580725.msg7611037#msg7611037)

Of course there is a fee. But there is one important difference!
The hashrate that you see in sgminer is already multiplied by it.
So there is no fee on top of what you see in sgminer. Period.

It is different from other pools. In other pools if you have 10.0 mhs in sgminer and 2% fee, you'll actually be paid for 9.8 mhs.

Transaction fees are even harder to account for.

If you are so curious to know what the pool fee is, you can figure out this value with at least two different ways on your own. (I'm not going to explain them here of course)

I'm setting up the fee in a way, so that it is interesting for you miners to mine on my pool instead of using non optimized kernel with other pools.

PS: in case you are wonderinv why I wrote so many messages in this thread today... :-) I'm at my son's tae kwon do grading and there are like 30 people besides my son. I'm happy my iPhone is with me..

grs-sgminer 1.3.0 is out. See first page for details.

If you do not plan to mine Saffroncoin or Myriadcoin, you can skip this release. Groestl mining speed is not changed.


Main improvement is addition of myriadcoin-groestl mining in "optimized" mode. Myriadcoin-groestl speed is:
R9 290 - 33 MH/s
R9 270X - 16 MH/s

You can mine Saffroncoin and Myriadcoin on the optimized pool. See example-myriad.conf.

Heavily disappointed that the optimized only works on a specific pool. Also, why can you not run dmd without --normal-hashing true? I would like to be able to switch between grs and dmd pools at will without having to take that config in and out.

Normal hashing parameter was introduced exactly for this reason. To be able to switch between grs and dmd pools in realtime.

See example.conf. You also should be able to specify normal-hashing true, false in command line if you are specifying two pools: dmd and grs


See that is the problem I am having. I have my rig setup under Mining Rig Rentals and don't have the option to put flags in depending on what pool I am mining at.

If I want to change it, I would need to restart the miner everytime with and without the parameter. Do you think setting it up as pool 1 and 2 with and without the parameter would work?

There must be some way to tell Groestlcoin algo pools from Diamondcoin algo pools.
Because the two coins use different merkle tree hashing (Groestlcoin uses single sha256, while Diamondcoin uses double sha256).

Perhaps it is possible to do something on the mining rig rentals site. Actually when I went to https://www.miningrigrentals.com/, there are no Diamond or Groestl algorithms.

They removed it from the front page with the addition of Fresh algorithm because it doesn't sell well with not many groestl coins out there.
https://www.miningrigrentals.com/rigs/groestl is the direct link to it now.

The problem is that on MRR you can enter 5 pools that you'd like to fall back to. The problem comes in because you still have to point your rig to MRR with the --normalhashing true command. So switching to a GRS coin wouldnt work because --normalhashing is still in there. Do you get what im saying?

Sorry this is hard to explain for some reason. It's basically 2 diff algorithms as far as MMR is concerned.

1) The only rig they have there right now is actually "myriad-groestl". This is not the same groestl as in DMD and GRS.

2) Yes, I understand exactly what you are saying.
The only thing that I have in mind is modifying the sgminer app to automatically guess the "normal-hashing" parameter for DMD pools. There are just a few of them after all, perhaps 5.

I believe that I have found a way to compile .BOP files for all AMD videocards, not just for 79X0, R9 290, R9 280X and R9 270X.

So if you had some problems with an old videocard, please re-download grs-sgminer 1.3.0 from here: https://github.com/srcxxx/grs-sgminer/releases/download/1.3.0/grs-sgminer1_3_0_M.7z

The file is compressed with 7-zip (http://www.7-zip.org) to reduce the filesize.

Note: there are no changes to the distributable rather than addition of .BOP files. So if everything is working fine, don't bother re-downloading.

PS: These .bop files were compiled in 14.6 beta. I'll also compile another set in 13.12, perhaps it'll be faster for some hardware (for example I think 7970 works better with 13.12 drivers).

Yes exactly, on my linux it does not, but i don't know for others persons...

I just reinstalled 14.6 beta drivers and my 7950 does work with these but indeed it was not with 13.12 drivers, i got the errors above
Your normal kernel works fine in 13.12 also, i only have my problem with the optimized version, maybe your 13.12 bop files will solve it

Thanks for the fast reply but sgminer's error demanded myriadcoin-groestlCypress256.bop and not myriad-groestlCypress256.bop.
I tried and renamed the bop file but it still doesnt work.
There are just a few bop files included which goes myriadcoin-groestl instead of myraid-groestl.. Whats the difference?

I think this is my screwup. I apologize.

myriad-groestl is supposed to be myriadcoin-groestl.

You can download full set of BOP files compiled on AMD drivers version 13.12 from here: https://mega.co.nz/#!IFZHCTRY!yo3CpPN_SLrYq0JU2mH1cKvqGcIZG7ZI4352s5nS8Bk (https://mega.co.nz/#!IFZHCTRY!yo3CpPN_SLrYq0JU2mH1cKvqGcIZG7ZI4352s5nS8Bk)

It may be faster for old videocards like 7950 and earlier.

Please reply to this thread with videocard model if 13.12 BOP was better for you.

I recommend that you try both if your video card is not the latest R9 series (like 58050 or 7950).

BOP file from 13.12 - speed is more than 2 times lower = 5+ Mh

radeon 6850 (800Mhz, driver ver. 13.12) - 3.03Mh = worse than the original 5%.
Why is that?
With which driver compiled bop files for old video-cards?

7950, 1.3.0, 14.6, ATH, -k optimized - works

BOP file from 13.12 - speed is more than 2 times lower = 5+ Mh
14.6 on 7950 = 13.9 Mh

Thank you for providing the info.

Could you share your config? Like what is the core clock?

noticed that your pool shows speed less than my miner 1.3.1
my speed 41.7 Mh, and pool during the day shows 28-30 Mh
it is much less my speed

UPD: on 1.3.0 speed correct

Hi!

Pool only shows very approximate values. For me it shows the hashrate +- 50%. That is normal.

It is important that the daily mining income is equal to the one calculated on whatmine.com or coinwarz. And I believe it should.

Thanks

do not agree.
on 1.3.1 pool stable shows the rate by a third less.
my speed 41.7 Mh. pool shows not more than 30 Mh.
on 1.3.0 pool shows 37-50 Mh
the difference is obvious.

today, when tried 1.3.1 noticed for the third time, that your pool does not pay for the last 3 hours mining, if to make a pause.
if the pool pays after 3 hours of a mining, that and payments have to go 3 hours after a stop. am I right?

hi, it should there be a problem with the new site because I mine for a week but I do not get anything in my wallet since 20/06.
I utilsait version 1 of the optimized kernel but I just upgrade to version 2 can be my problem be solved?

You need to provide more info.

Which coin you are mining, are you getting any Accepts? Do you see your wallet address in http://cryptohunger.com:81/workers?

Payouts are running every hour. So if you did not get payouts for one week - then something is definitely wrong.

I'm not sure what you are asking.

But when you start mining for the 1st time, the coins will only be paid out once the found block mature. Which is usually 2-3 hours.

Same happens when you stop mining. You still will be getting some coins for a few hours after you stop.

Yes, this seem quite low for the optimized kernel. I'm not sure about 30MH/s on R9 280X (I have 33MH/s on R9 280), but 21MH/s on 7950 seem to be low.

Please send your command line.

You are using -k myriadcoin-optimized, right?

Because if you are using just the normal -k myriadcoin-groestl, that's pretty much what you should be getting.

Code:
My result on groestl on old videocards:
radeon 5870 (900Mhz, driver ver. 13.12) on the original groestlcoin.cl - 6.535 Mh, and on the optimized groestlcoin.cl - 6.91 Mh = better in 6%;
radeon 6850 (800Mhz, driver ver. 13.12) on the original groestlcoin.cl - 3.22 Mh, and on the optimized groestlcoin.cl - 3.39 Mh = better in 5%;
Sgminer 1.3.1 with -k optimized:
radeon 5870 (900Mhz, driver ver. 13.12) - 6.22Mh = worse than the original 5%;
radeon 6850 (800Mhz, driver ver. 13.12) - 3.03Mh = worse than the original 5%.
Why is that?
With which driver compiled bop files for old video-cards?

Have you tried the "original" on your hardware? (I'm just not sure what you are quoting, is it your message or someone else's).

Perhaps you need to use 13.12 BOP or 14.6 BOP.

Provide more info, like your command line, speed with "-k groestlcoin" etc and perhaps we will figure it out.

I just uploaded BOPs compiled on 13.12 AMD driver. Download is here: https://mega.co.nz/#!9M4AxIZZ!XfkttSJYKdzWn-fEC8RidIy4oh9EQeGnGOy3IYbPBPo (https://mega.co.nz/#!9M4AxIZZ!XfkttSJYKdzWn-fEC8RidIy4oh9EQeGnGOy3IYbPBPo)
The previous 13.12 set (https://mega.co.nz/#!IFZHCTRY!yo3CpPN_SLrYq0JU2mH1cKvqGcIZG7ZI4352s5nS8Bk) was compiled in Linux. And looks like all files are 2 times larger in Linux than in Windows.

Could somebody (with 7950 or earlier videocards) try it and see if it is any better?
I think that the myriadcoin-groestlTahiti256.bop / groestcoinlTahiti256.bop from this ZIP may actually be very good.

Or if the speed is exactly the same as in Linux 13.12, it would also be good to know.

Thanks

The "-g 1" is not usual. If you remove it, would it influence the hashrate?

23.5% gain with optimized. Pretty good.

Could I ask you to try the 3 bop files in this zip package (https://mega.co.nz/#!hJoXgKZI!CDLUh7VM3jnbgsulb6SEuMFGZUH2ei1ZiXElDLAPBWI) and provide the hashrates for your 7950?

I wrote that 3 times checked payments after a stop. they are smaller than they should be and only 1 hour, instead of three.

-g 1 change nothing

14.6b = 21 Mh/s
1312l = 7.86 Mh/s
1312w = 18.75 Mh/s

I tested your 13.12 windows compiled bop files too and i get 9.8Mh/s with 7850 and 18,75Mh/s with 7950.
So i guess that "l" was for linux and that "w" for windows :D

Maybe i should try to test in windows later or that would help if someone else can...

Conclusion 1 : On linux, 14.6b drivers are way better for 7850 & 7950. Seems normal, the weird thing is rather people getting higher hashrate with 280x & old drivers.
Conclusion 2 : There are huge difference between linux and windows compiled bop files. Windows compiled files perform a lot better on linux than linux compiled files...wtf lol

14.7 RC1 driver is out. It is not better in terms of groestl algo mining. Perhaps even a bit slower (19.84 MH/s on 14.7 vs 20.03MH/s on 14.6).

I would not recommend you to update at this point unless you have some other reason. Let's wait for the official release...

Post by: DumDumz on July 14, 2014, 03:57:51 AM

with 7950 not working :( only rejections :(
same on 7970 not working :(

I recommend you read the OP. There are several things you should not forget:

1 - adding the normal-hashing parameter if mining DMD
2 - make sure you use the optimized kernel only with the 4 stratums mentionned in the OP. It will not work in other pools.
3 - use the default config posted in OP or available in the example.conf file that comes with the miner
4 - and most importantly, you should provide more detailed info. Saying you only get rejections is not very useful to figure out what you problem is. Perhaps posting your config file and a screenshot of sgminer or printout could be useful.

I don't see why with 7970 it cannot work. 280x is a 7970 rebranded so they should behave the same way. Only scrxxx can confirm this 100% though.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for your help buddy :)

7950 @ 1080/100 and drivers 14.6b = 21 Mh/s

I heard people with 280x have approx 30 Mh/s...

EDIT : Myriadcoin-groestl

Yes, this seem quite low for the optimized kernel. I'm not sure about 30MH/s on R9 280X (I have 33MH/s on R9 280), but 21MH/s on 7950 seem to be low.

Please send your command line.

You are using -k myriadcoin-optimized, right?

Because if you are using just the normal -k myriadcoin-groestl, that's pretty much what you should be getting.

Thanks

Have you documented the difference in AC consumption and temperatures?

What about the power consumption of the optimized and unoptimized kernels?

Does anyone have some numbers for us? :P

Without modifying any settings except the kernel this is what I get:

Standard kernel: 4 x 280x = 695 Watts >> 14.5 Mh per card
Optimized kernel: 4 x 280x = 918 Watts >> 5 Mh per card

This is the total wattage reading from the watt meter at the wall so it also includes the rest (mobo, ram, cpu etc) but what is interesting is the relative difference.

Also note that in order to get the best of the standard kernel I would need to modify certain parameter in order to "optimize" the hashing.

EDIT:

After I optimize parameters with the stantard kernel I get:

Standard kernel: 4 x 280x = 790 Watts >> 7.7 Mh per card

EDIT 2:

Noticed I inverted hashing values above. It was supposed to be:

Standard kernel: 4 x 280x = 695 Watts >> 5 Mh per card
Optimized kernel: 4 x 280x = 918 Watts >> 14.5 Mh per card



polanskiman,

I see you were monitoring this. How about your previous readings using sph-sgminer (both energy consumption and hashrates)? Much appreciated.

If I remember right I was getting around 4.7 Mh with sph-sgminer for a similar energy consumption than with the grs-sgminer optimised kernel. Perhaps even more.

I have now switched to NVIDIA's GTX 750Ti which is way more energy efficient. One 750Ti gives you 7.8 Mh for 50W which is 15.6 Mh for 100W (for 2 GPUs). A 280X give's 14.8 Mh (in my case) with the optimised kernel for 230 Watt. You get the point.

Glad I'm not mining here anymore and that I am not using AMD's 280X. Sold them.

Cool. Thanks for the data.

Got to love those 750Ti cards. I'll be replacing my 7950's sometime soon.

BTW, has anyone said anything on why the huge difference between the myriad-groestl and groestl hashrates? Myriad-groestl gets around 90% higher hashrates than groestl (and the diamond kernel too)!

myriad groestl is groestl and sha256
groestl is groest groestl

--> sha256 is super fast, so groestl takes most of the time --> myriad groestl nearly 2 times as fast as groestl

Hi guys!

Sorry for not being active on the thread. I'm on a 3 week business trip in USA/Europe until 1th of August.
If you need something from me - send PM (I'll get an email notification and reply).

I have worked on the groestl algo in the spare time and hoping that it will improve the hashrate even more, I'll know for sure in about 10 days from now.

In the meantime, I've added AidBit coin (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=683317) support at port 50005.

I cannot test if it works or not, as I don't have access to my rigs.

I am going to ask a friend of mine to test and let me know, then I'll post here.

Thanks

Do NOT mine AidBit yet. Something wrong with their network (reward jumped from 200 to 6 and difficulty is about 0.8).
See: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=683317.360
I will let you know when all problems are fixed.

Thanks

Update: I think all problems are now fixed with AidBit network.
I'm mining there and found 9 blocks so far. I'll wait until pool pays out the mining reward from those blocks and then will be able to say that AidBit is supported.
But I'm pretty sure it should be ok. So if you want, you can join the AidBit pool in BETA stage. (The difficulty is pretty low, around 5).

I believe it is safe to mine AID on my pool. Feel free to join. The blocks are confirmed. Payouts have not come through yet, but I am not expecting any problems. If there will be some problems with payouts, I'll pay you myself.

NOTE: AID Block matures in 500 minutes, so if you start mining right now - you'll only get reward in like 10 hours.

That would be about right since their reward is a dynamic reward based loosely on an 8:1 diff ratio (8 * dDiff, roughly, for now).

I used to be on correct fork and could see my transactions on their block explorer. Now they've modified the code AGAIN!!!

Just 12 minutes ago: https://github.com/AidBit/aidbit/commits/master

I updated AidBit daemon to https://github.com/AidBit/aidbit/commit/152026f3fc331268253f4c5f41cada4ec5366761
Which is an hour ago's version and it seems to be the same as the windows 1.0.1 beta 2 (http://www.aidbit.net/bin/AidBit-Setup-v1.0.1.0b2.exe)
So the pool is on correct fork (correct until AidBit dev makes another fix)

PS: Btw, I'm quite sympathetic to the troubles AidBit is going through. When DMD switched from POW to POS+POW they had similar problems and it took quite a bit of time to resolve all issues.

I was not aware of this new 1002 fork of Atheistcoin. Usually, developers notify pool operators about such things, but they never did.

I'm going to update the ATH coin right now.

Hi!

I still don't understand. Perhaps provide the exact details / screenshot.

Are talking about setting memory frequency say to 1400 and it appearing to be 150? If yes, then you probably have R9 290 and it automatially sets low memory frequncy, because memory is not used in Groestl algo.

try some lower values 1400, 1300, 1200 and so on
until you find out what minimum value is possible to set manually.
on my 280x it's 1000, any lower setting resets to default.
no matter what miner used


Yes I agree and was used to get memory clock between 1000 & 1500 Mhz, now it doesn't take into account gpu-memclock... must be specific to this miner! :)

A word of caution about AidBit. Their network is very unstable and devs make updates/forks a few times per day plus they have the problem with wallet getting stuck.
I try to do everything to be always on correct fork (I think I already did it like 8 times), but still some problems may occur.
Please mine at your own risk (I'm mining it myself with 2x R9 290).

Hopefully, it'll stabilise in the coming days.

Nothing for july 31..actually last payout was  9 pm july 30 on one machine.
Another machine after 8 hours 14 blocks and Nothing.

Something wrong with the DMD pool. No payouts for 31 july too.
Maybe pool on fork blockchain or only autopayouts?

Ive been on another pool for a couple hours And its auto payout is working but they are not going to the wallet.
I see them go out but not in. Strange.
Since yesterday the diff dropped in half,as well as the whole greostl
network is barely 2 gh.

just check if ur pool payouts are visible
in http://diamond.danbo.bg:2750/chain/Diamond

and if ur miners show same diff (around 60 now) as visible on
that pool which is 100% on right chain

There are some problems with payments on DMD after the hardfork, I'm looking into that...

The whole DMD blckchain is having troubles, read here for details: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=580725.2400

DMD transactions are sent out, but they are either not being confirmed or are confirmed very slowly.
I would recommend to not mine DMD for now until the network stabilises.

You might want to try saffroncoin on port 60002 (myriadcoin-groestl algorithm). They are going to have block reward halved in a few days.

OK, I am pretty sure that Diamondcoin on my pool is on the correct blockchain (transactions are visible in Diamond block explorer + when I synced Windows wallet as per steps on DMD OP, I can also see transactions).

I hope it will stay this way. We'll see.

As for the previous payouts... I have about 300 DMD that were not paid out while DMD blockchain was stuck. I'll pay them out manually once the network settles down.

PS: The automatic payment should be working ok now, for example see: http://diamond.danbo.bg:2750/tx/1ac84c0f2ee8970054fb18460948b7430efd7680ad021ae3689e4d1e9951ba11#i6

Thanx for the effort, srcxxx! I hope quite a few of those 300 are coming my way, mined about 95Mh/s for some 30h, only 1,7 in payouts...

Just wanted to let you know that I'm working on further optimizations almost every day. It is really hard to squeeze more MHs. I tried 2 other algorithms and both achieved worse results.
I'm hoping to get a 10%-30% speedup before I give up, so I'll keep on trying.

Today I was able to optimize the existing algo a tiny bit. Perhaps 1% - 3%.

Below are BOP files for R9 290 (Hawaii).
groestl (https://mega.co.nz/#!tABDVJzC!dWktORh81DyeyyskrD8hIBTJJw0Fx5uBko2Fqybjk6M)
myriad-groestl (https://mega.co.nz/#!hMpiTKLY!c8MuOTuUcS-a-Up48exefS0zvnZZUbt-IN8fQ4hUafA)

I'll try to optimize it a bit more and once finished, I'll do another release and include other videocards (1-3% is not worth a whole release).

Thanks

Hi all!

Some good news.

A new version of grs-sgminer will be released within a couple of days:
* merged optimized kernel (dynamic switching between groestl and myriad-groestl algo, no need to restart the miner)
* optimized kernel hashrate improved a bit (33.6 vs 32.9 on Myriad and 20.5 vs 19.8 on Groestl [R9 290 TriX @ 1170 Mhz])




Also TrinityCoin (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=695149) (myriad-groestl) has been added on port 60003. Not sure how profitable it is, probably not so much. But it is traded at bittrex (https://bittrex.com/Market/?MarketName=BTC-TTY).

BTW, if you know of any other groestl or myriadcoin worth mining - please let me know and I'll add it.




And finally, I've added links to the coins threads on the main page (http://cryptohunger.com:81/).
MYR, SFR, GRS and DMD have links to calculators. I did some calculations for a single R9 290 using optimized kernel.
BTC reward per day is:
0.00040709 if you mine GRS
0.00102124 if you mine DMD
0.00112975 if you mine Myriad
0.00539810 if you mine Saffron


PS: Let me know if you are interested in a multipool with payouts in BTC.

Thanks!

Hi!

With Groestl and Myriad Groestl algorithms, you usually need to overclock GPU quite significally. For example, I'm using 1170Mhz on R9 290 (where standard frequency is 1000Mhz).
This happens because these algorithms don't use power hungry memory exchange operations and thus GPU produces less heat and stays within TDP bounds.

I don't have 6970, so cannot check for sure.

What I'd recommend is to take your "old badman's sgminer 4.0" exact command line, change algorithm to "myriadcoin-optimized" and pool to stratum+tcp://cryptohunger.com:60001 and see what hashrate you'll get.
If it'll be less - then grs-sgminer is not well suited for 6970 videocards and It'll be great if you could post your results before stopping with grs-sgminer.

Thanks

Pretty new to Linux here but I have to say something at least.

I made a build from your github repository today.
It was the easiest, CLEANEST build I've done in my 3 months using Linux. (no errors/warnings)

It looks like you spent some time developing and delivering a quality product.

Nicely done  :)

Hi!

OK, looks like the kernel is not good for the old hardware that you mentioned.
So I don't recommend that you use grs-sgminer.
I'm quite surprised that just plain myriad-groestl is slower in grs-sgminer, because it is based on OpenCL kernel from sph-sgminer.
Anyways, I'm working on completely different groestl algo and hoping it'll be a lot faster.
In the meantime, I recommend that you use your old miner and some other pool.
I will post to coin threads once I have a faster miner.

Thanks for your time.

How many threads are launched per shader core? You mentioned that thread-concurrency is no longer used... but on 6xxx radeons that parameter is useful - maxing out at shaders*5
It seems by default when using simple myriad-groestl, your version is defaulting to shaders*2.

"thread concurrecy" is actually a buffer size, which is used only on scrypt, as far as I now.
surely not on groestl.

Title: grs-sgminer 1.4.0
Post by: srcxxx on August 16, 2014, 10:53:44 PM
Version 1.4.0 is out.

Download from: https://github.com/srcxxx/grs-sgminer/releases/download/1.4.0/grs-sgminer1_4_0.zip (https://github.com/srcxxx/grs-sgminer/releases/download/1.4.0/grs-sgminer1_4_0.zip)

* switch between Groestlcoin and Myriadcoin-groestl on the fly without restarding the miner
* 5% more hashrate in optimized kernel

Please keep your existing grs-sgminer 1.3.X just in case. There were quite a few changes and I hope I haven't screwed up anything.

If you have any problems, like crashing - please PM or post here.
If you don't have any problems - please post to this thread and let us know if it works faster (or not).
If not - you can still use prior version of grs-sgminer like 1.3, but of course I'd like to optimize the kernel so that it is always faster. And your feedback is very important here.



* I'm getting 20.5MH/s on groestl and 34.2MH/s on myriad-groestl [R9 290 TriX]. Previously I had 19.8MH/s and 32.9MH/s respectively on same hardware. I used exampleGrs.bat and exampleMyr.bat (included in .zip) in the speed tests.

* Looks like increasing the GPU core speed actually decreases the hashrate, I'll do some more tests and post the results.



I did some measurements with a watt-meter on my rig.
Two R9 290 TriX, Windows 7, Pentium G3220, SSD.

Idle:                           80 watt
exampleGrs.bat:            573 watt (20.45 Mhs) 246.5W per card; 12.05 watt per MHs
exampleGrsSlow.bat:      523 watt (16.67 Mhs) 221.5W per card; 13.28 watt per MHs
exampleMyr.bat:           580 watt (34.2 Mhs) 250.0W per card; 7.30 watt per MHs
exampleMyrSlow.bat:     508 watt (27.7 Mhs) 214.0W per card; 7.72 watt per MHs

Results show that optimized kernels use less watts per each megahash.
So if you don't want to switch to optimized kernels because they make more heat, just downclock your GPU so that it uses the same amount of electricity (while providing you with more megahashes).


Thanks

Near term plans:

1) Enrich http://cryptohunger.com:81/tbs with information on coin difficulty, best exchange rate, profitability [possibly also draw nice graphs in http://cryptohunger.com:81/stats]
2) Payout logs. Yes, many people asked for it and I kept saying that NOMP pools doesn't have this functionality. I think that official NOMP is not going to get this functionality any time soon. So I am going to write it myself. I'm not promising fancy looks, probably just plain text for now.

Both of the above will be open source additions to NOMP.
If you are interested in helping achieve 1) and 2) and you are a JavaScript programmer, please let me know. Perhaps we can settle on some BTC bounty (I'm not a JS programmer, so it'll take longer for me to do it on my own and having help would be great).

ps. Great job on v.1.4.0! Thank you!
Edit: Actually, people are having problems with standard kernel on v 1.4.0 (shares not getting accepted).
       For the time being, we reverted back to v1.3.1. Will post more info when we investigate.
       Thanks.

Atheistcoin and Trinitycoin removed (low exchange volume and no miners on the pool)

DigiByte mining will be added as soon as block 145,000 hits on their blockchain.

Near term plans:

1) Enrich http://cryptohunger.com:81/tbs with information on coin difficulty, best exchange rate, profitability [possibly also draw nice graphs in http://cryptohunger.com:81/stats]
2) Payout logs. Yes, many people asked for it and I kept saying that NOMP pools doesn't have this functionality. I think that official NOMP is not going to get this functionality any time soon. So I am going to write it myself. I'm not promising fancy looks, probably just plain text for now.

Check your anti virus quarantine.

when starting the new version with the assumption ur config is json, the opening screen displays "sgminer" then closes. this is a indication that ur av has seen sgminer.exe as a threat. I temp disable av to start and enable after it's running. I could be off base but this seems to be happening more often. av says less then five users have run this program "SGMINER.EXE" .this makes an assumption that if only a few are using it it is a potential threat. I chose to override it's false quarantine. at least for now.

Hi!

Thank you for this information. I compile sgminer.exe myself on my computer, I do not think it is infected. But I can do a clean windows install in VMWare and try compiling there.

Could you let me know the name of the Antivirus Software, that doesn't "like" grs-sgminer?

I checked the distribution package online and the results are quite positive: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/df92dc372f8d3b18564a1417b04a1ad4d4eef93ac55d29b8419a3c306468fa02/analysis/

http://i.snag.gy/6L3oO.jpg

There are 3 "bitcoin-miner" reports, but that's how it should be. Cause the application is actually doing exactly that: mining.

> the opening screen displays "sgminer" then closes
It is supposed to display some warning text before closing.
Could you start sgminer from command prompt and provide the text details?

Thanks

Now you can see your payouts history in http://cryptohunger.com/stats/ (http://cryptohunger.com/stats/)

Nothing fancy, just a CSV file. I'm thinking of adding a nicer HTML version of it showing your current hashrate and last 10 payouts (with most recent ones on top).

PS: If something is not working correctly, please PM.

Guys mining GRS and using grs-sgminer 1.4...

I have a proposal for you:

I am starting a multipool project, see http://boostpool.com/.
The multipool is selecting the most profitable coin using Groestl or GroestlMyriad algo (mostly Saffroncoin and Myriadcoin currently) and mines it.
During the day, all mined coins are exchanged into BTC and GRS are bought for this amount.
Then, once a day, the GRS are paid to miners.

I am still developing the frontend, where you'll be able to see your per-worker hashrate, daily payouts, etc.
Right now you can't see anything at all.
So I'm starting it as a Beta (since the mining part is working just fine). If you feel adventurous, I can guarantee you 50% more GRS per day than if you were mining straight GRS. My today's GRS profit was about 3X more than if mining straight GRS.

It might be profitable if you are mining other Groestl-algo coins, like DMD or DOKDO. But do your calculations yourself.

Any questions - let me know...

http://i.snag.gy/m8xKA.jpg

PS: If you are mining Myriad or Saffron, don't switch to multipool! You'll get less profit.

Thanks

Post by: srcxxx on September 01, 2014, 05:53:28 AM
Special offer for DOKDO miners... 2X more DOKDO per day.

What to do: point your grs-sgminer 1.4 to stratum+tcp://boostpool.com:3333.
Use your DOKDO wallet as login. Use your email as password.
Start mining and make sure you are getting "accepted" shares in sgminer.

I will pay you 2 times more in DOKDO than you were receiving currently for your hashrate.

If you are not sure about this, or think it is a scam - please email me at boostpool@gmail.com and I'll pay you 100% before you even start mining at boostpool and then another 100% next day.

PS: Digibyte mining is coming soon to port 60005. I've already set everything up, but do not mine yet! We are waiting for block 145,000. See: http://insight.dgb.cryptopoolmining.com/ for countdown. It will probably be quite profitable to mine it for a few hours when difficulty is low.

Thanks

I started mining DGB at this pool , I`m using a 280x 1080/1500 temp 65C and I get 24MH (kernel-groestlmyriad) using the latest 1.4 miner

is the 24MH good enough or is it possible to achieve more hashrate ?

Hi!

I don't have 280X unfortunately, but looks like you are not too far from the optimal performance.

Previous reports stated that 280X is about 70%-80% of R9 290 and my R9 290 is 34MHs.

I believe Windows with latest AMD drivers gives the best performance.

Other users mining with R9 280X, could you please comment on your hashrate?

Thanks

Note: boostpool.com with auto payouts in BTC and GRS is currently in Beta (official release date: 22 September). No exchange fee until 22 September and BTC payouts are allowed (just use your BTC address to log in instead of GRS address). Details: boostpool.com (http://boostpool.com)

i just pointed my GPU to boostpool with BTC as payout

stats page with blocks found would be nice so we can see if hashrate in the pool is enough to find block

i was mining at DGB cryptohunger with hashrate of 13 Mh/s
now in Boostpool it is 363 Kh/s which is 36 times slower, is that normal?

edit: nevermind, with GRS algo i was 7.8 Mh/s which is about 20x of hash now like you mentioned

Hi!

Welcome to boostpool!
I just processed payouts for yesterday and they've been great. 0.015294233 BTC per 1 MH/s. That's about 5-10 times more than usual!

Unfortunately, the DGB price is falling steadily and now is 26 satoshi instead of 33 yesterday.
But I'm still expecting a few more days of extra profit.

Hop in!

We're mining DigiByte, it is about 5X more profitable than anything else.

Automatic payouts got stuck.

Sorry about this.

I manually restarted the pool and now the coins should have been sent out.

PS: Please move from this pool to boostpool.com or other pools. There is an updated kernel for groestl coins, see my post above.
You might get better hashrate and lower fees there. I recommend you to seriously consider moving.

This pool is going to be closed soon...

DMD POW is down, see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=580725.0

So DMD pool is being permanently deleted from cryptohunger.

Please notice that this is not a problem of this pool, the whole network is down.

I understand that you probably are not going to be happy that your miners will stop working. But there is no point in burning electricity if a block can't be found anyways.
