Top-20 Prime Gaps for all merits: http://primerecords.dk/primegaps/gaps20all.htm (http://primerecords.dk/primegaps/gaps20all.htm)

Gapcoin broke records of 544 first known occurrence prime gaps:

http://www.trnicely.net/gaps/g6k.html (http://www.trnicely.net/gaps/g6k.html)



Specifications:

  • PoW: custom, prime gaps
  • Block target time 2.5 minutes
  • Block reward proportional to the current difficulty
  • Block reward halving every 420000 (about 2 years)
  • Cap: about 10 - 30 million GAP
  • Difficulty adjusts every block and increases logarithmic (it will probably take years to get to 50)

Fair launch:

  • Gapcoin was not designed to enrich the early adopters or the coin creators! The more people mine Gapcoin, the more coins per block will be produced. (Coin supply will increase logarithmic with the difficulty, this means it will grow in the beginning, but later, it won't change much.)
  • There won't be any premine!
  • To avoid instamine, the reward of the first 1152 blocks (about 48 hours) will increase quadratically to its absolute value: the current difficulty. Block reward will be 1/1152^2 * blockheight^2 * difficulty for the first 1152 blocks. This should guarantee that the difficulty is stable until the blocks yield a worthwhile amount of coins.
  • Source code will be available before launch (excluding the PoW function), so everyone can setup their own environment, compile the software, and check if everything works.
  • Windows and Linux binaries will be distributed in an encrypted container before launch, the password will be revealed at launch.

Launch date: Tue Oct 21 2014 - 18:00 UTC

The formula π(x) is known as the prime-counting function, which graph shows the prime gap distribution as well.

algo?

searching for large prime gaps

a novel one, apparently. You can't use any existing miners.

This is in development for some months now if i am correct. Nice to see it is going to finally launch.

One question though. You say that you are going to give source and binaries 2 days before launch. So what stops someone to start the coin? Ok i read what i should have read :D

P.S. You should probably start already thinking about pools since after a few days casual miners wont be able to mine anything.

Yes pre announcement thread was here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=647681

Binaries will be distributed in an encrypted container, the password will be revealed at launch.

The source code will not contain the neccesary Proof of Work functionality, its only to set up and test compile environment.

You have to install gmp and mpfr libraries:

That worked great! TY!

I know not wat i do though :(

Wat do I do after that?

Counting down to your launch though!

Also: "The source code will not contain the neccesary Proof of Work functionality, its only to set up and test compile environment."

-You gonna push this on launch? Or just binaries?

Have you contacted pool operators/worked with pool code so that this is a possibility at launch?

Have you worked with GPU miner devs to develop a GPU algo for your PoW code?

Also, when I'm more sober, gonna check out your website so I can learn wats different from riecoin/primecoin :D

If you compiled everything successfully, that's it for now.
Just wait for the launch.  ;)

Yes, the entire source code will be published at launch.

This is in progress, but probably we won't have a pool right at the start.

Also Gapcoin is currently CPU only.

No, the PoW code isn't pushed. Compile - yes, Mine this coin - no.

Mpfr configure error is sometimes based on a incompatible gmp library version.
you could try to compile and install the newest versions from their websites:

https://gmplib.org/ (https://gmplib.org/)
http://www.mpfr.org/ (http://www.mpfr.org/)


Will i be able to mine this coin from wallet itself or i must use the mining software??

Both are possible.

What is more profitable, solo mining or RPC mining?

It should theoretically be equal, because Gapcoin and GapMinder using the same PoW / mining code base.
At the end it will depend on your system.

How do I get my windows client to mine this?

help > debug window > console

setgenerate true


or in the .conf file you could have gen=1

my gapcoin.conf is as follows v v v

server=1
gen=1
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
addnode=212.227.143.155
addnode=104.131.69.82
addnode=95.215.44.9
addnode=155.254.36.179
addnode=199.127.226.192
rpcuser=gapcoinMiner
rpcpassword=PASSWORD

if you have the following set as your gapcoin.conf, mining will automatically take place once the wallet is opened.

hmm, it's possible. i don't know how an orphaned block "acts" in the wallet  ??? it left not a single trace, just gone. i thought, orphaned blocks have to be confirmed first before they show their ugly face. in this case, time was to short to get confirmed.

Looking to setup a pool for this, was wondering how to setup the stratum support.

Dev, are you working on any source code for stratum pool support?

Essentially I saw in the original post and on official website that a pool is more friendly to setup for this coin as oppose to RIC or XPM. I thought I read it to be as easy as scrypt, however, being that this coin has its own algo, I doubt the stratum support is there just yet. Just curious how one would go about this.

Thanks in advance!

First of all, Gapcoin follows Riecoin's way and uses enough Miller-Rabin tests with random bases to avoid composite numbers being accepted as Prove of Work, like Primecoin mistakenly could.

I'm doing some reading on the three links I found on your website.

Also, looking forward to difficulty 35.4245 :D

Do you have any expectations of what kind of hardware would need to be involved with this in order to get the difficulty to that level?

In Primecoin a fermat liar could be accepted as PoW.

PoW.cpp:
Code:
130   /* start has to be a prime */                                                 
131   if (!mpz_probab_prime_p(mpz_start, 25)) {                                     
132                                                                                 
133     mpz_clear(mpz_start);                                                       
134     return false;                                                               
135   }                                                                             
136                                                                                 
137   mpz_init(mpz_end);                                                           
138   mpz_nextprime(mpz_end, mpz_start);

mpz_nextprime also uses 25 miller rabin test:

mpz/nextprime.c:
Code:
107     /* Miller-Rabin test */                                                     
108     if (mpz_millerrabin (p, 25))                                               
109       goto done;

Every client uses 25 miller rabin test with random bases, to prove the primality of a prime gap.
That should ensure that pseudo primes gets detected by the network.

I'm doing some reading on the three links I found on your website.

Also, looking forward to difficulty 35.4245 :D

Do you have any expectations of what kind of hardware would need to be involved with this in order to get the difficulty to that level?

Probably GPU and/or FPGA miners.

You can use the setgenerate rpc call:

Code:
setgenerate generate ( genproclimit ) ( sievesize ) ( sieveprimes ) ( shift )

Set 'generate' true or false to turn generation on or off.
Generation is limited to 'genproclimit' processors, -1 is unlimited.
See the getgenerate call for the current setting.

Arguments:
1. generate         (boolean, required) Set to true to turn on generation, off to turn off.
2. genproclimit     (numeric, optional) Set the processor limit for when generation is on. Can be -1 for unlimited.
                    Note: in -regtest mode, genproclimit controls how many blocks are generated immediately.
3. sievesize        (numeric, optional) Sets the size of the prime sieve.
4. sieveprimes      (numeric, optional) Sets the amount of primes used in the sieve.
5. shift            (numeric, optional) Sets the header shift.
                    Note: sieve size can only have 2^shift size.

Note: shift also should be in range [14, 512]

Shift, should be the most sensitive parameter, because it controls the bit size of the primes.
Second would be sieve primes.

Hey j0nn9. I am using some computers mining with gapminer on another computer and it seems to work. So i got 'share found' which as far as i can understand it shoud be block found on the daemon of the other pc. But it seems that i didnt found anything.

So my question is, can gapminer indeed mine on another computer's daemon or i am doing something wrong and i am just wasting the miners power? They seem to get work and mining... Could it just be an orphaned?

Yes, it should be possible to mine with gapminer on another computer.
If gapcoind accepted the block, you should see something like this: "Found Share 20.798565  =>  accepted"
otherwise: "Found Share 20.798565  =>  stale!"

When your share (block) was accepted, it can still be orphan.

Almost forgot to mention, Gapcoin has two new RPC calls:

Code:
listbestprimes amount (min merit)

Returns a sorted list of the best prime gap merits.

Arguments:
1. amount        (numeric). number of prime gaps to display
2. merit         (numeric, default = 16). minimum merit to display

Code:
listprimerecords merit

Returns a list of all prime gaps with the given integer merit.

Arguments:
1. merit        (numeric 1,2,3..) the prime gap merit.

Note: The above rpc-calls can take a long time to respond.

I got the miner to build on mingw64, but it crashes after submitting a share but before the share message is placed in the log. It looks like something with the line

    info_msg("Found Share: %0.10F  =>  %s\n",
             ((double) cur->get_pow().difficulty()) / TWO_POW48,
             (accepted ? "accepted" : "stale!"));

in shareprocessor.cpp causes the crash, since it stopped crashing (on testnet at least) once i turned it into just
info_msg("found share\n");

Or is it just totally random? There are people in the richlist that have 100+ coins. How did they manage to do that?

Theoretically you will find a gap with merit m (~difficulty) within e^m prime gaps:

e^20.45 = 760890487,  so you will need to calculate about 760890487 primes to find a new block.

If your primes per second are 25000 then you will need 760890487/25000 = 30435 seconds, which are about 8:30 hours.
So you will finde ~ 2.8 blocks per day.

The rpc-call getmininginfo has a new value called gapsperday, which is calculated using the above formula.

Theoretically you will find a gap with merit m (~difficulty) within e^m prime gaps:

e^20.45 = 760890487,  so you will need to calculate about 760890487 primes to find a new block.

If your primes per second are 25000 then you will need 760890487/25000 = 30435 seconds, which are about 8:30 hours.
So you will finde ~ 2.8 blocks per day.

The rpc-call getmininginfo has a new value called gapsperday, which is calculated using the above formula.


My stats, 2 machines:

Primes per sec combined: 43k

Gaps/day combined: 5

Blocks found since launch: 4 :(

Yay, statistics!

thats  21.6% chance each hour and
average of 5.18 blocks per day
i've found 7 blocks with my 2 systems in 1.5 days, so that's pretty on par.

Keep trying.

When you compile the miner on your own it uses spectial compile flags for tuning, like:

Code:
-march=native

"Native" means that the code produced will run only on the CPU which compiled it.

The published binaries were not built with that type of optimation, meaning they will run on both amd and intel.

Thank you for the linux one! :D

One question about the algo and the records. So we have to reach  35.4245 difficulty.
Does that means that if hashrate never gets bigger we wont find record prime gaps?Even if we mine for much more time?
What  hashrate should the network have  so that we can reach that difficulty? I want to realize how fast we can actually reach that. Will it take some months or a year or 10 years?

Of course i understand that better miners will come out and pools will help but i want to have a comparison.

It's not neccesary that the difficulty reaches 35.4245, we already have two ~28 merit gaps:

Code:
[
    {
        "time" : "2014-10-21 19:41:01 UTC",
        "epoch" : 1413920461,
        "height" : 240,

        "gaplen" : 5346,
        "merit" : 28.02997943
    },
    {
        "time" : "2014-10-22 06:07:49 UTC",
        "epoch" : 1413958069,
        "height" : 737,
        "ismine" : false,
        "mineraddress" : "Gcagtj5wCDHai4tJqJqTLTFwLBDaJnAA5u",
        "gapstart" : "94715185144650972004538857957041135176651988819124169310707053830636479917687941569",
        "gapend" : "94715185144650972004538857957041135176651988819124169310707053830636479917687947043",
        "gaplen" : 5474,
        "merit" : 28.65064563
    }
]

You can use the "listbestprimes" rpc-call to list the gaps with the currently greatest merit.

Within the test networks the greatest merits were mostly about 9 times greater than the difficulty,
so we hopefully only need to reach a difficulty of  27.

It seems that virustotal shows a false positive for the 32 bit windows-qt binaries:

This is not unusual, antivirus software tend to falsely detect bitcoin and altccoin binaries, because scammers often
use them to distribute malware.

To be safe it's recommended to check the md5 sums after downloading.

OK I think I figured out why I'm pretty much a statistical outlier at this point.

I've had 3-4 orphans in the last 10 hours, probably more, is there any reason for this?

It's been to the point where I've sat there and watched the client not keep up with the chain, and sit there not updating until is solved the block, then sat there for another 10 minutes until it updated.

Since miner is as efficient as the the Core miner you dont need to run the miner. And since you have gen=1 at your conf you should already mining.

Go at your wallet, at Help then at Debug window and then at Console   and write:   getmininginfo

"generate" should be true and "primespersec" is your hashrate...

According to this you should get 6 blocks per day or 121.51 gapcoins per day. But right now difficulty dropped. If it gets at the same level as yesterday's peak expect 35% less.

LOL all the miners find are orphans. Two more in the last couple hours. It lags like ten blocks behind the block explorer before it even says it found a block, then it finds one because it doesn't keep up with the main chain, then sits there for a while longer until it decides to sync with the main chain.

I wonder what I'm doing wrong?

Anyone else have anything even close to this happening?

I guess I'll try a different OS.

pps are your primes per second. 34280 is actually pretty good, what cpu are you mining on?
Maybe we can create a hardware comparison page on the website.

I've been working to implement the algo in stratum for the last few days so I can get a pool up but it's not easy, and will take at least a few more days. It's been one hell of a C++ / C learning experience however!

Is anyone working on a non rpc miner?

Post by: j0nn9 on October 24, 2014, 09:25:59 PM

The current nodes, should be enough. They also are hard coded into Gapcoin.
So it should automatically connect to the network even without the nodes in your config.
Once it connects, it loads more nodes and connects to them.
This means that except for the initial connection, you end up connecting to random nodes on the network.

I had something similar, and found that my comps were kinda finding blocks, but most were orphans due to not keeping up with the network (comparing my top block to the block explorer top block). I've been watching my network connections, thinking it might have something to do with losing connectivity to nodes so it just stays on some blocks for longer than it's supposed to.

I added all the nodes in the OP too, but I haven't found any blocks that I know of since I started watching it. I've got 43k pps, so they're usually quite a few hours inbetween.

I did find two legit blocks today though, so big win from the last few days when I ended up with 1 block on the 23rd, 1 block on the 22nd, and 3 on the 21st.

It is quite soon for a better exchange. Lets see if a pool pops in a few days or maybe weeks. Meanwhile we have to bring more people with CPUs to mine...I wanna see diff going higher first.

I believe that GPU wont come so fast. But not sure.

It's a nice experiment but unless this coin is used for something it will die...

It's already difficult to mine, people won't join unless it hit a good exchange or you can do something with it.

I think the dev team should work on the usefulness of the coin then exchanges will follow.

Its quite easy to mine actually. What do you expect? To mine with a laptop and get 20 dollars per day?

And yes it is an experiment. I like that it will possibly make some records and this will probably bring more people interested in computer science/mathematics etc to bitcoin.

Yeah, we need a pool.
But in the meantime: the wallet has some problems while compiling, but the precompiled binary works. The standalone miner has some problems while compiling, but the precompiled binary doesn't work. The miner simply finishes without errors/messages. I'm testing it on actual Mint with all dependencies installed

Gapcoin has the listed nodes hard coded, but if you did not add them to your config, it uses them only for the initial connection and then connects to random nodes.

So yes, it could be that you got some weak one.

Adding the listed nodes could help, but if everyone connects to them, then they will become the "weak nodes" because of the heavy network load.

Quite surprising that more people are not actively mining this, guess crypto currency has become more about the 'money' and less about the math and science.

Should certainly be a lot more interest in Gapcoin when a working pool is up and running though I'm guessing.

j0nn9 i would propose that you write on the title of the OP something like that 'New Math Algo - CPU only'

also 'decentralized' is pretty much obvious since it is a bitcoin based cryptocoin...

My title would probably be: [ANN][GAP] Gapcoin-Searching for Prime Gaps-New Math Algo-CPU only-Zero Premine

Many people are searching for CPU coins and are interested in new algos but the title wont probably attract them.


Also is there thinking about decreasing time required for block reward halving? Since rewards are actually getting raised a bit with diff and since today is not 2009 anymore i would argue that 2 years for halving is rather much. I would propose a quite fast halving time of 6 months or even more aggressive like 3 months. My thinking is that this way it would trigger more speculating and faster. And even if it is too steep and probably create bubble situations it would also probably generate enough pressure so that we can have  nice hashrate peaks rather early and try to break some records. 2 years halving time seems a bit rather stagnating especially in a crypto world that everythig changes every half a year.

I would like to see some chat on that matter. Especially now that the coin is 5 days old and noone is going to have the upper hand.

- http://labs.runabove.com/power8/ - has $32 of free credit currently - Steadfast resources S with 1 x CPU seem to be the best option at $9

- http://www.hpcloud.com/cloud-credit - "Get a $300 cloud credit when you try HP Helion Public Cloud"

Looking forward to finding some new Prime Gaps.   :)

Don't joke! It's an ad not a mining pool!!

Just informing everyone of how to obtain some 'free' cloud mining for when we have a working pool.

It's probably worth mining on windows azure instances in the wallet right now to support the network and to perhaps find a few extra blocks.

Anyone working on getting Gapcoin on a real exchange? (Bittrex would be nice)

Anynews on Pool?

please if you get GPU working be nice and share don't mine on your own for 10days... (probably too much to ask)

Found 2 blocks in 16hrs :)

55000 ppd

It is quite soon for a better exchange. Lets see if a pool pops in a few days or maybe weeks. Meanwhile we have to bring more people with CPUs to mine...I wanna see diff going higher first.

I believe that GPU wont come so fast. But not sure.

It's a nice experiment but unless this coin is used for something it will die...

It's already difficult to mine, people won't join unless it hit a good exchange or you can do something with it.

I think the dev team should work on the usefulness of the coin then exchanges will follow.  

Wait You exchanger. no pool for coin.

I guess gapcoin needs another block explorer:

And a rich list:

I can also set up a faucet, but someone else needs to fill it.

Seems like you discovered a bug.

But the proper way to use this rpc call is:

Code:
listreceivedbyaddress ( minconf includeempty )

List balances by receiving address.

Arguments:
1. minconf       (numeric, optional, default=1) The minimum number of confirmations before payments are included.
2. includeempty  (numeric, optional, dafault=false) Whether to include addresses that haven't received any payments.

Result:
[
  {
    "address" : "receivingaddress",  (string) The receiving address
    "account" : "accountname",       (string) The account of the receiving address. The default account is "".
    "amount" : x.xxx,                  (numeric) The total amount in btc received by the address
    "confirmations" : n                (numeric) The number of confirmations of the most recent transaction included
  }
  ,...
]

Examples:
> gapcoin-cli listreceivedbyaddress
> gapcoin-cli listreceivedbyaddress 6 true


With the right arguments, it doesn't shows an error.

Yes, it should be accurate, did you mined some orphans?
You could try adding these nodes to your config:

Code:
addnode=212.227.143.155
addnode=104.131.69.82
addnode=95.215.44.9

I found lots of orphans using linux mint. Now, I just switched over to windows 12 hours ago on one machine, found 2 blocks. PPS is faster for that g3220 processor too, by about 15%.

But, also i did the addnodes yesterday too on mint machine, and got 2 blocks on a 4820k too though .. so who knows.

Unknown if I've got orphans though.

I'm using windows 7 for my wallet.  I have another win7 machine running the rpc miner with no problems.  When I try to introduce the rpc miner to a 3rd windows machine, it seems that it cannot connect to the wallet.  I get the same message printed over and over again -

Code:

Any idea why?

It seems that it connects, but Gapcoin is not responding in time.
Is it a very slow pc?

Currently you cannot change the timeout. This will be changed in the next release.
But you can also mine with the wallet, it should be equal.

No, its not a slow PC, I built it less than a year ago - AMD A10-6800K @ 4.4 GHz w/ 12GB ram.  This is the wallet PC.  I have my GPU BAMT rig and another win 7 PC successfully connected using the RPC miners.  I have tried on 2 different win 7 pc's with the RPC miner (each would be the 2nd windows instance to try to connect).  Each time the 2nd windows client tries to connect, i get the error above.

good, two folds the more you mine the more I make (all of us actually, you too, study source code for proof), hence don't just use 4 use 8 of them, lets push difficulty sky high

nice, network primes per second has gone up was 5 now 8 (PPS) almost doubled in one day, you are going to give primecoin run for their money

that is all for now, change nothing. maybe a PHP pool, and you all should rush to get coins because at higher difficulty you will need serious CPU power (and later GPU farm)

 8)

want my prediction ? it's gonna be 4$ per GAP , in venue with powerful boolberry, and this is just for starters. I could not do boolberry, fortunately caught you in time.

do you know that with sufficiently large primes gap, it's findings can compromise RSA ? not a catastrophe in itself because keys can be made very large but imagine media attention

Not even 1k per thread seems rather bad. Sandy bridge processors can get nearly 10k per thread.

Make no mistake about it, this is a GPU coin for AMD R9 and Nvidia Maxwell GPUs.

The algorithm used for this coin falls in the sweet spot as afar as GPU register usage is concerned for modular arithmetic implementation (512-bit or less). Also, sieving is much faster on these GPUs.

What would be interesting to work out is which of the three is the most energy efficient method of discovering primes in relation to the hardware required to build the network, regardless of the hardware that the algorithm is used on.

According to the user Supercomputing, not yet. Currently it is CPU only, but it seems like that won't last forever. So maybe in a few weeks/months the 280x will fit when someone develops the software, but for now it's CPU only.

In a few days from now, assuming that there is not one out there already.

I will not have time this coming weekend. But during the following weekend, I will integrate Gapcoin mining with the open source Primecoin miner below. Less than an hour's worth of work:

you might have to add (--threads x) at the end of your bat file, where x is the number of cpu threads you have (or cores)
for a 6 core cpu it would be "gapminer -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4200 -u username.worker -x password --threads 6"

I wonder how long it will take for the pool to find its first blocks  ;D
I ended up pointing all my hash to the pool  ::)

Thank you very much for your help.

Wait noticed that on one CPU speed when mining Solo 6000pps, 3000 at the pool at all so?

you might have to add (--threads x) at the end of your bat file, where x is the number of cpu threads you have (or cores)
for a 6 core cpu it would be "gapminer -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4200 -u username.worker -x password --threads 6"

I wrote -t2 and did not put a space ;D, thx you.

miner works on a pool My Hashrate

How long have to wait until the information is displayed? thx  ::)
Had the same problem with pool miner built from source (no shares being submitted). It turns out that build instructions contain the link to the solo miner (https://github.com/gapcoin/GapMiner.git instead of https://github.com/noncepool/GapMiner.git). Source dowloaded using the second link builds and works perfectly.

Sorry, Fixed!

The pool miner does not work very well, too many stale shares.

Yes the miner is not ideal, wasn't really designed for pool mining, doesn't support long polling, or work restart after x time, if there are no new network blocks for many minutes it will start sending stales. You still might be better off still solo mining for now until a more robust miner becomes available.

Is nonce-pool not accepting any work from the old miner for windows? We don't have a windows build yet for the new one....so should we not use it at all or can we use it with a restart command after x amount of time. I also don't see my work on dashboard after several minutes, is this because the pool is not accepting work from original miner? Thanks.

Are you using the nonce-pool miner or the solo-miner?  I'm mining just fine on windows and linux using the rev 1 nonce-pool miner.

According to the user Supercomputing, not yet. Currently it is CPU only, but it seems like that won't last forever. So maybe in a few weeks/months the 280x will fit when someone develops the software, but for now it's CPU only.
In a few days from now, assuming that there is not one out there already.

I will not have time this coming weekend. But during the following weekend, I will integrate Gapcoin mining with the open source Primecoin miner below. Less than an hour's worth of work:
https://github.com/eXtremal-ik7/xpmclient

I've done a blockchain analysis and can confirm there has been no gpu action at play. I'll keep monitoring..

I also just made a topic on peercoin/primecoin altcoin section since its kinda relative.

Thank you!  :-*

+1 - Great job dev!

Thanks!  :D

Wow a lot of high profile people are here. I will notify Dave and join the fun too ;D

I sent him already although he didnt respond ;)

I also just made a topic on peercoin/primecoin altcoin section since its kinda relative.

Finally i will probably make a topic on Greek subforum tomorrow. I would propose you do the same ;)

I wanna be part of some record breakings !

Thanks. So I don't need to bother him anymore. Btw somehow Dave isn't much active anymore for a while. Did he earn enough with XMR so he becomes bored with crypto ;D.

Take a look at the OP - there is a cloud mining guide there.  Now this is meant to set up the wallet, not the miner - but you could simply change the download link and file names.  I'm a total linux noob, but I was able to set up 5 cloud servers using this as a template.

Cloud based Linux Guide for CPU mining Gapcoin at: http://gap.nonce-pool.com/ - Ubuntu x64 - 14.04 LTS - Recommended.

Sign-up with cloud based Linux server hosting, such as Digital Ocean, VULTR or RunAbove and set-up your new servers.

To login to your cloud server you need to download putty.exe (for windows) - http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Simply double click on putty.exe to start PuTTY and enter your server's IP address and click on OK to logon

When clicking on OK you may be presented with a server authentication warning screen. Just click on (or type) Yes to continue.

Now you need to enter your username and password. Login as: root and with your password.

Note that when you type your password the command prompt probably won't move along - just continue to type and press the enter key to login.

N.B. On a Linux based OS open a new terminal by pressing CTRL + ALT + T and at the command prompt type: ssh root@YOUR SERVERS IP ADDRESS

Rev. 3 EDIT:

----- COPY and PASTE each section / line of TEXT below individually into the Terminal -----

Code:
sudo apt-get update

Set-up a SWAP file due to low RAM on some instances:

Code:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16

Code:
sudo mkswap /swapfile

Code:
sudo swapon /swapfile

Code:
sudo apt-get install p7zip-full

wget github.com/gapcoin/GapMiner/releases/download/gapminer-noncepool-linux-rev2/gapminer-noncepool-rev2.zip

Code:
wget github.com/gapcoin/GapMiner/releases/download/rev3/gapminer-linux-rev3.zip

7z x gapminer-noncepool-rev2.zip

Code:
7z x gapminer-linux-rev3.zip

Code:
sudo apt-get install screen

Code:
screen

In screen mode hit the Space Bar twice to return to the command prompt.

gapminer-noncepool/64/gapminer -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4200 -u YOURusername.YOURworker -x x --retries -1 -t NUMBER OF CPU THREADS

Code:
64/gapminer -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4200 -u YOURusername.YOURworker -x x --retries -1 -t NUMBER OF CPU THREADS

----- COPY and PASTE each section / line of TEXT above individually into the Terminal -----

and press the Enter key to start mining. DONE !


N.B. You can use (press and hold) CTRL + A + D to get out of the screen session. Then type exit and press enter to close the terminal, although continue mining Gapcoin.

If you log back in to the terminal type: screen -r and enter to check that your still mining Gapcoin.

Indeed. Everyone set their miners running and lets find some new prime gaps. Difficulty up towards 35+ should start to churn up some new records.

When mining Primecoin, you can easily betray the pool by modifying your miner to search only for smaller prime chains.
With Gapcoin, this is not possible.

In detail:

When you searching for prime chains, you use a sieve for filtering prime candidates.
If you search for a 10 chain, you sieve 10 times and eliminate all prime chain candidates that are smaller than 10.
The primecoin pool then for example credits you for submitted 10-chain candidates that are only 7,8 or 9-chains.

If you now sieve only 7 times, you will get a lot more 7-chain candidates.
Not only is your calculating effort less, you will also find 7-chains that would not have been 10 chain candidates.
The important point is, your chance of finding 10 chains drops while your chances of finding 7 chains rises.

Pool operators have to implement something to handle such "betrayers".
With Gapcoin you don't have this additional effort.

The difficulty is just the minimum size of a gap to generate a block. The miner will also find larger gaps - the largest one found so far was a lot larger than needed.

Your chances of breaking the record are always the same, no matter what difficulty!

Perhaps you could post the errors that your getting or I'll try to test it over the weekend. TBH I'm mining Slimcoin at RunAbove at present and mining Gapcoin at both DO and VULTR.

Solo mining works at RunAbove, so it will just be a matter of reproducing the 'error' with rev2 capminer and making it compatible with the P8 chip set.

For two days I worked on this problem. Eventually scanned the harddrive with WinHEX and found all the fragments 01D63081D30201010420 on disk, immediately after they begin private key. Then I entered these data in written in Python script that appealed to each of these places on the drive was reading data and recode them in the desired format. Private key + address. Turned out to be a large file, I'll run a search and found there is a lost private key by address. Victory!

Hi guys!When I try to mine solo,the miner shows me what it couldn't connect to server
waiting for gapcoind...
Is something wrong with my configuration of .bat file?
My .bat file looks like "gapminer.exe --host 127.0.0.1 --port 31397 --user myuser --pwd mypassword --threads 7"
I have created .conf file in AppData folder and using username and pass from this file.

Cheers!

what is your .conf ? Apart from pass and username ofc...

And just to be sure you are running gapcoind too right?

btw you can mine directly with gapcoind with setgenerate true . As far as i know gapminer still isnt faster than core miner...

When I try to open gapminerd,it closes.For sure this is the reason...But how can I check why it closes?

Try creating a file byte again, just take the data from the downloaded file, and test.

Still syncing, problem lies in block verification, its too slow.

You could not possibly sync 10 days in couple of minutes, mine is still syncing, 2 days behind, over 1 hour.

Sure that might work on other coins but not on GAP. Block verification is slow, we need to fix this.

someone already pointed out that GPU miner can be constructed by merging

A) https://github.com/gapcoin/Gapcoin-PoWCore  

and

B) https://github.com/madMAx43v3r/xpmclient/tree/master/gpu/fermat.cl

and

C) https://github.com/madMAx43v3r/xpmclient/tree/master/gpu/sieve.cl

not trivial! but certainly no phd in CS needed, hard work and diligence for sure (and sleepless nights)

I would say and based on experience with XPM , such a miner should be released in the open to push difficulty very high at the early start, would be nice to see very large primes being processed by the network

great coin overall one of the best thing that arrived on the scene as of late

 8)

I m almost sure that right now whoever is doing between 1,500,000 to 3,000,000 PPS is doing it thru cloud service (and paying nice premium ain't cheap)  buy 10 Instances on AWS and you have the same PPS, its good so it means someone trusts value of it is gonna go up n fold from AWS prices that they are paying right now

At the moment you could still buy cheaper @polo, so why not sell for 30k.

But with rising difficulty you wont be able to buy this cheap soon.

Rev. 3 - Gapminer - Cloud Mining Update:

Remember to close your existing Gapminer when logging back into your cloud instance before updating to Rev 3.

Code:
sudo killall gapminer

Cloud based Linux Guide for CPU mining Gapcoin at: http://gap.nonce-pool.com/ - Ubuntu x64 - 14.04 LTS - Recommended.

Sign-up with cloud based Linux server hosting, such as Digital Ocean, VULTR or RunAbove and set-up your new servers.

To login to your cloud server you need to download putty.exe (for windows) - http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Simply double click on putty.exe to start PuTTY and enter your server's IP address and click on OK to logon

When clicking on OK you may be presented with a server authentication warning screen. Just click on (or type) Yes to continue.

Now you need to enter your username and password. Login as: root and with your password.

Note that when you type your password the command prompt probably won't move along - just continue to type and press the enter key to login.

N.B. On a Linux based OS open a new terminal by pressing CTRL + ALT + T and at the command prompt type: ssh root@YOUR SERVERS IP ADDRESS

Rev. 3 EDIT:

----- COPY and PASTE each section / line of TEXT below individually into the Terminal -----

Code:
sudo apt-get update

Set-up a SWAP file due to low RAM on some instances:

Code:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16

Code:
sudo mkswap /swapfile

Code:
sudo swapon /swapfile

Code:
sudo apt-get install p7zip-full

wget github.com/gapcoin/GapMiner/releases/download/gapminer-noncepool-linux-rev2/gapminer-noncepool-rev2.zip

Code:
wget github.com/gapcoin/GapMiner/releases/download/rev3/gapminer-linux-rev3.zip

7z x gapminer-noncepool-rev2.zip

Code:
7z x gapminer-linux-rev3.zip

Code:
sudo apt-get install screen

Code:
screen

In screen mode hit the Space Bar twice to return to the command prompt.

gapminer-noncepool/64/gapminer -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4200 -u YOURusername.YOURworker -x x --retries -1 -t NUMBER OF CPU THREADS

Code:
64/gapminer -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4200 -u YOURusername.YOURworker -x x --retries -1 -t NUMBER OF CPU THREADS

----- COPY and PASTE each section / line of TEXT above individually into the Terminal -----

and press the Enter key to start mining. DONE !


N.B. You can use (press and hold) CTRL + A + D to get out of the screen session. Then type exit and press enter to close the terminal, although continue mining Gapcoin.

If you log back in to the terminal type: screen -r and enter to check that your still mining Gapcoin.

- Digital Ocean (https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=3893cccaf65f) $10 with promo code SSD2014 or OMGSSD10 - VULTR (https://www.vultr.com/?ref=6812809) $5 free when you register and an additional $5 if you use Bitcoin. See: https://www.vultr.com/news/45/Now-Accepting-Bitcoin! (https://www.vultr.com/news/45/Now-Accepting-Bitcoin!)

Thanks!


Again, remember to close your existing Gapminer when logging back into your cloud instance before updating to Rev. 3.

Code:
sudo killall gapminer

The biggest wallet has only 5k GAPs. More people know about this coin, more valuable it will become.

Not a Polo fan, and I also don't want to support a low sell price, I suggest that 30k sat should be an absolute mininmum.

At the moment you could still buy cheaper @polo, so why not sell for 30k.

But with rising difficulty you wont be able to buy this cheap soon.

+1.
The biggest wallet has only 5k GAPs. More people know about this coin, more valuable it will become.

I do not know what you are mining on but 5k GAPs is a serious amount of coins.
Around 11,000 coins are mined every 24h.

another positive development 447 workers engaged GAP on the pool as of this moment, once GPU miner is released expect this number to double really quick and difficulty rise.. think twice before selling now  8)

observing all this with amazement, it is all interesting how reward was structured although rising difficulty will balance higher reward per block

Hi All,

To me the primes/s metric looks to be useless.  It is a counter which is only incremented when a composite isn't found which makes it a valid comparison only for the same sieve parameters.

Example; assume that there are on average 100 non-composite number in the gap to test, your chance of finding a block is primes/s divide by 100 multiplied by the chance of a gap.

Now lets increase the efficiency of the sieve (add more primes) so that you only have 80 non-composite numbers to test.  The equation used above is now wrong by 25% and your reported primes/s has hardly changed at all.

This also means profit calculators based on primes/s are not accurate if you change 's' or 'r' when mining.

Using 10g/s or 15g/s would be a better method to calculating profits as it includes a way of seeing the effects of sieve efficiency.

Regards,

At the moment its a useful metric as everyone is using the same implementation. I agree this needs to be changed soon.

Yes I have seen even bigger fish with other coins. Remember that a lot of people have far more resources than typical miners like us.
Btw I have great news. The main designer from Shadowcoin, who also designed a lot of others coins (IOC, CLOAK..) has agreed with me to redesign the GAP website and make the new logo. I will keep you inform.

this could indeed be GPU's in operation, he is scoring large number of blocks and consistent, he overrode others with 1 to 3 million and is trying to "corner" supply quick.. not good

that or he/she launched 100,000 PPS x 10 x 8 = 80 servers x 50 cents per hour each... (40$ an hour!, ~1000$ a day) AWS .. that would be down right brave

another forensic observation is "he/she" is donating, this can only mean a group of individuals trying to raise difficulty level for the "good of the coin" which makes sense if they don't pull back suddenly

With spot instances its a lot cheaper than that. One c3-8xlarge is ~25 cents per hour für ~135,000 pps.

Thats ~15$ per hour with on average about 5 Blocks. Actually profitable!

at 25c my instance was killed after 2 hours (trust me I tried) at 40cents it was killed, had to redo setup (this was few days back) so conservative is 50cents or 55 cents I was getting approximately 108K PPS consistent

even at 25 cents.. (if survived and autolycus is surviving without interruption) it is still a lot of money, so something else is going on there

I doubt he is operating at 25 cents , thats very low for AWS double that as said

Try us-east-1e.

Also there is a beautiful api you can use. If it gets terminated just let it automatically spawn a new one in a different data center. Copy the miner and start it using a automated small script.


Let me guess: Not optimized for avx, using stock libgmp.

-O3 -march=corei7-avx -mtune=corei7-avx

+tune for libgmp.

this could indeed be GPU's in operation, he is scoring large number of blocks and consistent, he overrode others with 1 to 3 million and is trying to "corner" supply quick.. not good

that or he/she launched 100,000 PPS x 10 x 8 = 80 servers x 50 cents per hour each... (40$ a hour!) AWS .. that would be down right brave

116 left   Autolycus   11/03/2014 00:21:05   22.4675   22.4678   28,325   83,020   127,856   451.39

With spot instances its a lot cheaper than that. One c3-8xlarge is ~25 cents per hour für ~135,000 pps.


at 25c my instance was killed after 2 hours (trust me I tried) at 40cents it was killed, had to redo setup (this was few days back) so conservative is 50cents or 55 cents I was getting approximately 108K PPS consistent

even at 25 cents.. (if survived and autolycus is surviving without interupption) it is still a lot of money, so something else is going on there

Try us-east-1e.

Also there is a beautiful api you can use. If it gets terminated just let it automatically spawn a new one in a different data center. Copy the miner and start it using a small script.



thanks! makes sense, would 1/2 my cost if successful, but from experience and I have done this before with primecoin in the beginning , it will go between 25 to 55 cents and costs pile up... also noticed one is much better off with solo mining at this level of computing as I did parallel test pool/solo , solo comes on the top , blocks are found.. so I don't really understand logic behind 8 mil PPS in the pool as you can "get to blocks" faster in solo and win that way , whatever wining word means here  8)

Let me guess: Not optimized for avx, using stock libgmp.

-O3 -march=corei7-avx -mtune=corei7-avx

+tune for libgmp.

And you are at ~144K pps





awesome! you probably added few blocks for me just now.. be right back

ok..

not much effect, optimizing for libgmp next...

yes, sudo killall gapminer; make clean;   building libgmp next and wiring, report soonish

shoot.. gcc 4.8 uses older version of gmp/mpfr compiling my own verison quick linking with gmp 6.0.0 and latest mpfr..

might as well gcc 4.9 ... funny I think someone was doing what I am doing now..

building gcc 4.9 with 32 cores ... what I won't do for GAP lol

no problem appreciate it.. this will be fastest gcc build , its ok.. although I could use 40 extra kilos of PPS  8)

it truly is however about GPU miner.. I feel we will have it in less that 2 or 3 weeks, it is important it is opened sourced and no freaking bounty or fee.. this so we reach high difficulty all of us very soon..

btw this is slightly easier to read and contains foundational code for fermat decomposition and sieve

https://github.com/eXtremal-ik7/xpmminer

will take a specialist though versed in OpenCL and GAP POW ... above needs RPC for pool, as this would be the best option iif opened sourced if hidden it will be attacked solo and you will see this in the increase of block counts in the rapid fashion (if GPU farm) that would be bad

Pool is severely under-reporting my hashrate. I'm running 6 servers with each running at 40,000pp/s for a 240,000pp/s total, being reported as 130,000pp/s on the site. Absolutely ridiculous.

Yes the pool is a bit overloaded for the rpc miner, we are working on a stratum server and hope to have it ready in a couple of  days.

We will be raising the pool difficulty shortly to reduce the server load.

Note: everyone's hashrate will show lower for now until we have a chance to fix the stats. (Not that they are that accurate anyway)

tried 8 threads , but the speed went almost 32000. I saw at harware mining comparation section that there are some older CPUs , which give much more speed , because of this I was curious about the speed...

noticed that total network primes per second has reached close to 35 million

disconnected from the pool altogether

A) pool bumped own difficulty threshold up
B) they can not handle number of workers and shares can and will be lost

if in 24 hour cycle I don't detected any blocks on solo, I am out (AWS) till GPU miner

also noticed price increase per GAP, but this is just increase not the price, real price will happen if this continues in time

is that a gpu miner?

What makes  you think its a GPU miner ?? Stop the FUD.
Stop your fud on stopping the fud.
ps i know there are some gpu mining this and thats no fud.
you have to have a doctorate in computers and C++ and it can be done.

You need a doctorate, eh ? Get lost stupid.
Then why didn't you do it?  ;D

block arrived.. on approximately 3 x 117K PPS a block every 6 hours.. but I feel I am running out of time + expensive

you people have something very cool on your hands.. care for it

start working on GPU miner (Open CL) Routines here is what is needed and fast: to combine gapcoin POW and Open CL (best would be with NVIDIA routines)

feel you should rethink your approach, although let me tell you that a block at a given difficulty level will yield you n-blocks at the current level (price wise)

here why I think this is coin is of much higher value than either XPM (primecoin) or BTC (bitcoin) if the difficulty level goes beyond 30 value of mining will exceed financial reward

my worry is that a developer(s) will hoard GPU mining software for GAP but difficulty of the problem (prime gap finding) is so high that they will only get so far and there will be in English "stop gap" that is no matter what computing power it wont yield reward desired

as we speak another block has arrived.. not turning off AWS as yet...

Hi!

A couple of questions: doesn't proof of work verification necessary involve testing all numbers in the gap? Even using a sieve, wouldn't it become too slow?
If merit is about gap size/log(p), but max gap size is O(log^2(p)), then max merit is O(log(p)). So in order to get more merit, you'll eventually need larger primes, otherwise you'll have an upper bound for the merit! How do you handle this?
I'm really interested in seeing how would this work.

Best regards,
Gatra

Another thing to consider:

If expected average merit and max merit depend on the size of the primes, wouldn't I get an advantage by mining a pool using smaller primes? (restricting myself to smaller "shifts") Smaller primes mean faster computations, so more chances of getting a share, but at the expense of less changes of getting an actual block!

If this is true, then pools would have to someway incentivize larger "shifts".

pool @Gatra simply could not handle RPC requests (changing now to stratum) also their hardware spec is not up to par, overall )and many said that) problem is so important we need more pools. I don't think artificial adjustments as to size of primes and shift in the reward calculation will be necessary if there is more than one pool, and even with one pool look at the price of GAP.. it is more than great and that given how purposefully or not people convert crypto to FIAT.. no idea why but it ain't me

ps. not convert to FIAT but convert to BTC.. because many hope that BTC to be dominant force. in years/decades to come. (I don't think it will, because it will focus too narrow but many do)

but here is where I stop

someone should elaborate on @Gatra (creator of Riecoin) more intricate questions, it is phenomenal he is looking at this development (in gap)

whats up with the pool @Nonce ? i keep getting Stales

and this msg: curl_easy_perform()failed: time out was reached



Yes the pool is a bit overloaded for the rpc miner, we are working on a stratum server and hope to have it ready in a couple of  days.

We will be raising the pool difficulty shortly to reduce the server load.

Note: everyone's hashrate will show lower for now until we have a chance to fix the stats. (Not that they are that accurate anyway)

ok thanks... seems ok at the moment. even tho the volume of workers is even higher than earlier.

Verification is quite fast. Even a 7k gap is verified within seconds.
With O(log(p)) the max. merit is already above 256, with a larger shift difficulty can raise further. I don't see any limit here.

Its a bit of a tradeoff here. Larger shifts allow for larger, more efficient sieves, while lower ones speed up the fermat tests. I figured out the optimum is somewhere between 20 (the default value) and 26. Its only a minor improvement anyway.

Hey Gatra,

yes, proof of work verification involves testing all numbers in the gap.

It is a simple gmp call:

Code:
130   /* start has to be a prime */                                                 
131   if (!mpz_probab_prime_p(mpz_start, 25)) {                                     
132                                                                                 
133     mpz_clear(mpz_start);                                                       
134     return false;                                                               
135   }                                                                             
136                                                                                 
137   mpz_init(mpz_end);                                                           
138   mpz_nextprime(mpz_end, mpz_start);

The time for one verification is currently about 0.008 seconds (on a Intel i5-2500K)

If merit is about gap size/log(p), but max gap size is O(log^2(p)), then max merit is O(log(p)). So in order to get more merit, you'll eventually need larger primes, otherwise you'll have an upper bound for the merit! How do you handle this?

This is no problem, you can control the prime bit size with the shift field within the block header.
The largest prime can theoretically have a bit size of 256 + 2^16
Gapcoin also has a (compile time) opt-in restriction for the max allowed shift amount.
The main nodes currently only allows shifts up to 512.

Let me explain it to you:

Difficulty increases just like with every other coin. But as the effort needed to find gaps increases exponentially with higher merit, the log of actual difficulty is shown.

Vanitygen assumes the private key magic bytes are (public key) + 128, which is not true for lots of coins. For Gap its +59.

go to vanitygen.c

Line 399
   privtype = 128 + addrtype;

change to
   privtype = 59 + addrtype;

then hit make again

Now it generates valid private keys

Prime numbers are interesting for lots of mathematicians around the globe,
and they're also important to every day cryptography (see RSA).

Researches about prime gaps could not only lead to new breakthroughs in the bounded gap,
it may also help proving the Twin Prime Conjecture and maybe even the millennium problem,
the Riemann hypothesis. Who knows?

It's that time of the month.  AWS bills are due in a few days.  Happens with all cpu coins.  Those EC2 costs start adding up.  People sell to pay the bill.  When people realize it's not profitable to mine dumping at those prices they'll either stop mining or dumping.

This coin is too young and inexpensive to be worried about  the price at this time.  I think that whoever sold at 0.00012001 will regret it.

Seems like more of a statement to me, like someone's trying to say that there's a GPU miner and they're looking to take the market to pasture.

I mean .. there's not so much profit to be had on this market like you said, selling now seems like a loss .. unless .. GPU miner.

W/e only .38 BTC value dump anyways, too little to tell.

Hope whoever was lucky enough to catch the sell is happy they're a proud owner of what is now 1.2% of the currency, and a top twenty owner for sure :D

Even though I doubt that somebody secretly wrote one already, the beauty of this coin is that a GPU miner would likely benefit us all, even if we had no interest in GAP coin... But, especially if we had interest in GAP coin.

I believe the offer is to flush out anyone with high performance miner (notice I didn't mention general purpose stream processors).

Hi there,

just wanted to inform you, that I started working on a GPU miner.
At the moment i can't say how long it will take.

Just playing around with eXtremal's (madMAx's) code.
Till now, the results are pretty promising:
On a R9 280 the fermat test gives a 30x - 40x speed increase in comparison to a single cpu core and gmp.

The sieve in Gapcoin only runs about 2-3% of the time,
so at the moment I will only port the primality testing to the GPU.

And of course I will open source it, once it's finished.


Thanks for all your great support so far,
I will keep you informed about the process.

Yes, it's not a perfect situation,
but consider Gapcoin is only two weeks old.

More pools will follow.

I'll email them, asking to add this coin, all you have to do is post the name of the pool/operator so I can google/search for it.

A scorpion asks a frog to carry him over a river. The frog is afraid of being stung during the trip, but the scorpion argues that if it stung the frog, both would sink and the scorpion would drown. The frog agrees and begins carrying the scorpion, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both. When asked why, the scorpion points out that this is its nature.

tl;dr: Dumpers gonna dump  ;D

I see a difficulty below 17. Thats <100k pps total.

Let me show you how to optimize the miner:

My I7-4770k with 8 threads, stock-miner:
pps: 31821 / 31160  10g/h 4473 / 3429  15g/h 0 / 0

Now go on and build your own libgmp from source. When done, run the tune utility for optimum results. Copy your final libgmp.so.10 to /usr/local/lib/.

Now we're at:
pps: 34039 / 34041  10g/h 6077 / 4479  15g/h 0 / 0

Optimizing sieve size:
open src/main.cpp

line 252:
  1048576);

to
   8 * 1048576);


and line 256
  500000);

to
  15000000);

make sure to also change the shift, otherwise you wont be able to submit most blocks! You could specify it on command line, but this is safer:

line 128:
  uint16_t shift = (opts->has_shift() ?  atoi(opts->get_shift().c_str()) : 20);

change to:
  uint16_t shift = (opts->has_shift() ?  atoi(opts->get_shift().c_str()) : 23);


Now its mining at
pps: 38276 / 37068  10g/h 5156 / 5265  15g/h 0 / 0


Lets also add the tuning for Haswell AVX2:
open Makefile and set

OTFLAGS   = -march=core-avx2 -mtune=core-avx2 -O3
(if you have a haswell, of cause)

Results:
pps: 39691 / 39553  10g/h 6059 / 5635  15g/h 0 / 0

Let me show you how to optimize the miner:


Thanks to riecoin my gmp is already custom compiled and tuned.  I only mentioned testnet as the diffidently was high and was increasing at a steady rate.

Interesting that you get some performance out of SIMD with the code as is.  One of the first things I did was to compile with "-ftree-vectorize -mavx2 -ftree-vectorizer-verbose=5" to see what auto-vectorising found.  It didn't find much (any?) to vectorise as most of the size of the loops aren't know at compile time (there are trick you can use however) or a non-uniform step being used.

Regards,

PS.  The fact that GCC couldn't vectorise what should be very conducive to vectorising is a good avenue to work on for speed-ups.

Its not only the vector extensions that are added, its switching between march=native to everything up to core-avx2. And O2 to O3. I dont know what exactly did the trick, has to be something thats added here.

Hi there,

i've managed to build a experimental gpu miner.
It got me about 200,000 pps with one R9 280x without any overclocking or powertune.

Currently the miner is very experimental and needs to be tested,
therefore I published the source code on github.

The miner is a hybrid version of eXtremals fermat test and GapMiners sieve.
The sieving is calculated on the cpu and the fermat tests are running on the GPU.
Currently it is very (host) memory hungry about 1GB and you have to use one instance
per gpu device.

You can get it with:

Code:
git clone https://github.com/gapcoin/GapMiner.git -b gpu-miner
cd GapMiner
git submodule init
git submodule update

It was built against amd app sdk v2.9 but maybe works with other versions too.
You can edit the Makefile to change the sdk destination directory.

I will merge nonce-pools stratum changes, and probably fix some bugs
at the weekend, and then create some binaries within the next week.

Code:
git clone https://github.com/gapcoin/GapMiner.git -b gpu-miner
cd GapMiner
git submodule init
git submodule update

Wow, that was QUICK! I'm pretty impressed by it!

done, next "Source files not found or empty" error (I did copy *.cl from gpu folder to bin...) bin has: benchmarks.cl  fermat.cl  gapminer  procs.cl

Got the GPU miner working with a AMD Radeon R7 250 2GB DDR3 on Ubuntu Linux.

Its doing around 40000 pps (including the dual core CPU) - just need to disable one (or both) of the CPU cores and get the GPU overclocked. Sure that the GPU can do a lot more pps overclocked - without the 100% CPU clogging the processes.

Having previously installed both bfgminer and sph_miner prerequisites on my testing box - I found I was missing the following packages:

sudo apt-get install libgmp-dev

sudo apt-get install libmpfr-dev

sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

sudo apt-get install libglu-dev

We have merged the new gpu miner changes into the gpu-miner branch of our source. We urge gpu miners to use the stratum port which has vardiff enabled.

This seems to increase the gpu miners pps a bit with a higher share difficulty.

yep that's experimental  ;D initializing uint4 as uint2 is indeed experimental
(however it isn't obvious that opencl and cuda use the same definition for these structures...)

It seems that the 1st instance has a lock on the kernel.bin file? Anybody get more than 1 GPU working at a time yet?


[EDIT] OK I created a separate directory 'Gapminer1' and copied gapminer and the gpu directory into it.  I can now get a 2nd instance running, but I cannot specify which GPU to use and it starts mining on GPU0 - which is already being used.  I tried adding '-g 1' to the end of my params but no luck.  Has anybody been able to get more than 1 GPU running?

Wow, I'm only getting 105,000 - 123,000 with my 7970.  Are you OCing this?  What does your startup script look like?

[EDIT] - Now using the stratum miner and up to ~130,000 PPS - still nowhere near your 320K   :-[

Hi there,

II know I said next week, but i managed to build some experimental gpu miner binaries ;D.
I created a new release which includes the stratum changes from nonce-pool,
and some bug fixes regarding the device selection.

But still, the binaries and source code are very experimental!

All binaries are linked against AMD APP SDK v2.9
You can get it here: http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/opencl-zone/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/ (http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/opencl-zone/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/)

the most other dependent libraries are linked static.

Has anybody been able to get a 2nd GPU running concurrently with their first?  I've tried specifying the GPU device ID '-d 1' on my 2nd instance of the program, but it doesn't seem to matter.  The program always defaults back to GPU 0.  Anybody get this to work yet?

You have to use one instance per gpu.
Use --gpu-dev <id>, to select the right one.

The miner does not stop mining the sieve until the original one is verified by a slow  mpz_nextprime() call.  When your miner is significantly faster than the PoW function you tend to find lots of shares before the PoW can stop the sieve from mining.

Cant actually involve more than 1 card a rig , even with this option :
--gpu-dev 0,1,2,3,4
One miner instance for each gpu
Yes Ive tried so ,and suppose to work but the speeds are different for each card ...
Which cpu do you have on a farm?
Im with celeron, sadly...

Hi there,

II know I said next week, but i managed to build some experimental gpu miner binaries ;D.
I created a new release which includes the stratum changes from nonce-pool,
and some bug fixes regarding the device selection.

But still, the binaries and source code are very experimental!

Works, pointed at the nonce-pool for now - thanks. I am getting some stale shares however - how can I troubleshoot that?


Sorry for another post, card 0 is a 280x and only using around 80-90% of gpu...   card 1 is a 290 and sits at 100% all the time but sometimes goes to 0 then back to 100, I guess this is a code thing... is there anything I Can provide to help improve?

@bsunau7

Thanks for the info and I will implement a small sieve for validation and use a single exponentiation test at each end point; it should be at least 100x faster and less than 1/(2128) probability of it being a larger gap.

There was talk on GMP mailing lists about speeding up gmp_nextprime in a very similar manner, sieve the start/end gap before running expensive MR tests.    As the gap has been pre-sieved you might just be able to MR test the non-composite in the mining sieve and get the same result.

I personally didn't bother with the PoW validation code as for larger gaps it just isn't called enough to matter.

Also you can tweak the pprocessor->process() to terminate the sieve early which will cure the stales and get you to the next "block" a few seconds faster at the risk of having a slightly wrong difficulty (in effect a non issue).

PS.  Just pushed testnet to >8 might slow down your stale shares some (I am only getting only 75-90% stale at this difficulty).

ok got passed OpenCL compiler error, now this

( replaced

// uint4 q[2] = {0, 0};
    uint4 q[2] = {0, 0, 0, 0};
)

yep that's experimental  ;D initializing uint4 as uint2 is indeed experimental
(however it isn't obvious that opencl and cuda use the same definition for these structures...)

so NVIDIA users are shut out from this software for the time being ?  8)

tried old ubuntu box with a 6870 and:

Code:
[2014-11-07 20:14:01] pps: -2147483648 / -2147483648  10g/h -2147483648 / -21474                                                  83648  15g/h -2147483648 / -2147483648
[2014-11-07 20:14:11] pps: 0 / 0  10g/h 0 / 0  15g/h 0 / 0

Seemed to always be 0 and never submit share, issue with legacy gpu?

Thanks will test some other cards this weekend if able.

~150k-200k each, without OC , Windows, I would imagine that can be tweaked higher with current miners and improvements, also on a relative slow CPU - 8150

Didn't try to tweak it much.

I created 2 different folders one 280x (device 0) and one 270x (device 1). I have in 280x folder --use-gpu 0. I have in 270x folder --use-gpu 1.

The 280x runs fine. I start the bat in 270x (gpu 1) and the bat runs gpu 0, the 280x.

Can someone enlighten me please.

The Miner currently uses the cpu for sieving, and is very memory hungry,
maybe you run out of memory and parts of the program where moved onto the disk (pagefile).

The memory consumption is so high, because a very lage sieve is used, with many primes,
and also a queue is used to keep the cpu busy while the gpu is processing the fermat tests.

You can alter a few parameters to reduce the memory load:

Code:
  -s  --sieve-size        the prime sieve size

  -w  --work-items        gpu work items (default 2048)

  -a  --max-primes        maximum sieve primes (for use with gpu)

  -z  --queue-size        the gpu waiting queue size (memory intensive)

The Sieve dynamically adjusts the sieve primes,
so that it opimaly generaets a new set of prime candidates while the gpu is testing a previous set.
The queue must have a minimum size of 2.

Hi Guys,

Here is a little fix which increased my block count (got your attention)?

Added TCP keep alives with a sub 5 minute period to the wallet.  Three lines of code in net.cpp and netbase.cpp and a tweak of the Linux kernel.

 #ifdef WIN32
     u_long fNonblock = 1;

Add into /etc/sysctl.conf

Code:
net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_time = 240
net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_intvl = 15
net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_probes = 9

Then "sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf" to make it take effect.

I went from spending half my time in 45 minute limbo land mining dead blocks due to the wallet hanging to no issues in the last 24 hours (no wasted mining).

Just quick and dirty hack (this is code for "It could have been done in a nicer way") which seems to have sorted out a big source pain for my little 4-core mining rig.

Oh, this might also address stratum mining issues this coin seems to have.  Monotonic coins don't go 15+ minutes without a transactions (i.e network traffic) so they would not see this issue.

You are right! we thought it was just us, very weird, we dropped the difficulty a little bit on 4205 and seems to have cured the work stopping.

Looks like your miner stopped to work, there are not accepted shares.
Do you use port 4205?

It's solo mining.

P\S to devs, i guess -z 10 solve the problem.

Actually I think 10 is the default,

We have been messing with the -z --queue-size locally with the previous port 4205 higher difficulty.

Currently...
-z 10 stops mining in about 5 minutes,
-z 4 ran for 45 minutes before we stopped it to try some other numbers.
-z 6 stopped in about 5 minutes

back to testing -z 4
15 minutes and counting...

I'll admit that I am not always the brightest and this has been asked a ton.

I created 2 different folders one 280x (device 0) and one 270x (device 1). I have in 280x folder --use-gpu 0. I have in 270x folder --use-gpu 1.

The 280x runs fine. I start the bat in 270x (gpu 1) and the bat runs gpu 0, the 280x.

Can someone enlighten me please.

-d 0 and -d 1 and --use-gpu without any numbers

Awesome man. I really appreciate that.

Got them up and running.

Can someone help me i get this eror http://postimg.org/image/i3evcadmn/

Thx in advance
delete stratum option and change port

it's working thx and how can in use all my 5 cards because it's working just Gpu[0]

Just in case you have not got them going, the answer was right in the quote.

Use an instance for each card.

-z 10 was about 30 minutes and than stopped.

-z 4 workin about 1.5 hours (continue mining) and 2 blocks were found in solo mode.

I didnt. GPU is still buggy it seems or people dont know how to configure it. I am still getting a few blocks per day. Once network hashrate gets like 25% more then i will consider stopping too.

What bothers me as i have told before is that i would prefer a more aggresive block reward halving instead of the 2 years one in order sto stimulate more speculation.

And at least some basic marketing, not about gapcoin being the future of the cryptos but about proposing people to try it and be part of some record breaking which generally help crypto exposure...

Any ideas ?

I was triyng setting my AMD Sapphire 280X rig to it yestarday. I was able setting mining with the rig stable only with 2 cards. Obviously the GPU miner requires more powerful CPU than celeron , because of this I considered not to use the rig for GAP...

I didn't stop, my rate of finding blocks hasn't changed in the last 24hrs and I am still profitable (even with the price drop).

I would be very interested in how many coins a solo GPU miner is finding per day; pps numbers are difficult to use when a non-standard sieve is being used.

are't you all positive bunch  8) shelf life of a crypto coin (any crypto coin) is beyond any exchange shelf life

seeing here some parallels with XPM , in terms of sell off. same people must be doing it, however difficulty level is holding up and primes are being found and at a high rate, don't think fpga yet as price is blocking someone from starting design/manufacturing process. for me GAP and XPM future lies years if not decades in advance, not poloniex short trades, both are very innovative in terms of computing number theory problems in the distributed fashion with a reward attached to it, just a little over year ago no one would even think about doing this, so you all have span of little over 1 year of history, unless developer steps aside which I have a gut feeling he won't GAP blockchain is going to grow as well as difficulty of network overall, public at large is still unaware (public at large is unaware about crypto in general!) media has 0 press releases on the subject and rest are some miners that got on AWS quick and sold it quick to recoup AWS cost + some tiny profit.. this is very weak strategy

I am a bit bitter self.. but only because I can not use GPU miner (NVIDIA system) but I should blame it on myself and attach IDE with C++ bring source cod up and adjust for that card.. instead of waiting for the world to deliver it to me

thank you for your attention

What are the optimal parameters
 
-s  --sieve-size        the prime sieve size

  -w  --work-items        gpu work items (default 2048)

  -a  --max-primes        maximum sieve primes (for use with gpu)

  -z  --queue-size        the gpu waiting queue size (memory intensive)



The current parameters should be pretty optimal.
To give you a range:

Code:
-s   form 100,000 to 100,000,000 default 15,000,000
-w   from  32 to 32000 default 2048
-a   from  1,000,000 to  100,000,000 default 30,000,000
-z   from 2 to 30 default 10

Dev Is it possible to reduce the load on the processor >:(

Currently only the primality testing runs on the GPU, the sieving still runs on the CPU.
Although it is possible to port the sieve to the GPU, it will probably take more time.

I could reuse eXtremal's fermat test almost without any changes,
but since Primecoin and Gapcoins sieving differs it will need a more deeper look into the opencl code.

Thats not a solution. We need more people to be interested in the coin.

I have proposed a more aggressive reward halving (this will be the last time i propose it) but i havent see anyone talking against or for it. No chat at all.

Another thing sure is needed is someone to build a small 'advertising campaign'. Send emails to crypto related news websites, ask other exchanges to add the coin, ask vendors to accept it, some twitter work etc... Generally someone for 'public image' and organising the community...

Maybe we should gather a bounty and give like 5-10 gaps for everyone who will translate the OP on his mother language if there isnt one already.


Its a good thing that difficulty is raising though :)

Well, then let's talk about the reward halving:

It wouldn't be much work to change it,
it's just that everyone would have to switch to the new client / wallet before the first halving takes place.

So, what do you think about halving the reward

  • every year
  • every half year
  • every three months


Also, I will give 25 GAP for everyone who will translate the OP into his mother language.

I would like to have more people arguing about the matter. What miners have to say? What other holders have to say?

Also guys, i dont think its wise to give 50 gaps for every translation. I mean there are other ideas that can use funds.  Like a giveaway of gaps by tweeting something. A small bounty for people making some art/infographics/funny pictures about gapcoin. Probably a bounty for a second pool. A bounty for merchants that will accept gapcoin (they should probably need to have some trust and wait at least like a month to get the bounty)

Also i think we should popularize a phrase or something. I was thinking something like  'We dont need you to buy gapcoin. We need you to mine gapcoin!' because after all i personally want to be part of a record breaking!

but that's just my opinion.


Also, I think there is currently someone working on a new design of the website and the logo.
I'll set a bounty of 250 GAP, for a new and innovative designed website and logo.

Thank you! 25 GAP Sent.

Send another 25 GAP.

I like to give 88 Gap for a cuda miner. Anyone who like that can add a few gap for the dev who make it possible.

I'll add another 100 GAP for working cuda-miner binaries,
I would do it myself but i don't have any nvidia cards.

  • every year
  • every half year
  • every three months

I would prefer the second option,
but that's just my opinion.

OK, so my graphics skills are basically non existent, or I would do this myself.  I had an idea for a GAP logo/slogan/whatever.  Instead of the famous London Underground 'Mind the Gap' logo, I thought of 'Mine the GAP'.  Anybody wanting to run with this, please do!

Well, then let's talk about the reward halving:

It wouldn't be much work to change it,
it's just that everyone would have to switch to the new client / wallet before the first halving takes place.

So, what do you think about halving the reward

  • every year
  • every half year
  • every three months


How about monthly 5-10% reduction ? Sudden halving is not good for any coin in my opinion.

Hi there,

nonce-pool confirmed me, that they can verify any block found against a pool user.


So, i will set a few new bounties:

  • 100 GAP for the first merit within the top 20
  • 150 GAP for the first merit within the top 10
  • 250 GAP for the first merit within the top 5
  • 500 GAP for the first merit, which breaks the world record


I also think there should be a bounty for a second pool, so I'll add 100 GAP for that.

Maybe too much work at once for the gpu.

You could try to change some of these parameters,
I would start to try -w 256

Code:

-w   from  32 to 32000 default 2048

Well, then let's talk about the reward halving:

It wouldn't be much work to change it,
it's just that everyone would have to switch to the new client / wallet before the first halving takes place.

So, what do you think about halving the reward

  • every year
  • every half year
  • every three months


How about monthly 5-10% reduction ? Sudden halving is not good for any coin in my opinion.

An other option would be to reduce the the reward every block,
so that it effectively halves every half year.

What do you think about that?

I'd vote for keeping it the same; no change.

The difficulty/reward curve is already negative, any devaluation will be short term at best and kill the coin at worst (i.e. removing any economic incentive to mine).

Maybe just have a gradual reduction per block to match the 2 year halving. This solves the abrupt halving issue, prevents market shock, and keeps true to original spec.

To increase demand, can try to get people interested in the science to purchase, supporting mining.

What could be wrong? I'm mining it with CPU and it's all right..

Maybe too much work at once for the gpu.

You could try to change some of these parameters,
I would start to try -w 256

Code:
-s   form 100,000 to 100,000,000 default 15,000,000
-w   from  32 to 32000 default 2048
-a   from  1,000,000 to  100,000,000 default 30,000,000
-z   from 2 to 30 default 10

I having the exact same 0pps problem. I have tried changing -w and if I set it to anything <2048 the miner crashes

The same to me. But I'll try other parameters.

setting -w < default causes miner crash, setting it > default causes several

at the beginning and zeroes later.
I've tried some combinations of -s, -a, -z on the max, min or halfway values, but changing them changes nothing.

Setting -w at very high values (like 50,000) causes things like this:

Hi,

Just found out, that a bug causing the miner to crash for -w values below 2048.
I'll publish a new release later this evening.

Hi there,

we had a little discussion about changing the block reward halving,
but it didn't lead to a conclusion. So, let's start a voting about it.

Every option is represented by Gapcoin address.
Every 0.00000001 GAP (1 Satoshi) counts as one vote.

The Gapcoin address with the most GAP will win the voting.
Then we will make a hard fork (or not) according to the chosen option.


The options are: halving the block reward

  • every 2 years (no changes, no hard fork)   GSJw8qfMBTrX1p9rRexuek4zXjb8ay3Nev
  • every year   GZHgCFHCwQYZhSqmGAJ7rKLYyo8fBEkgdj
  • every half year   GRNwEjBXhr3ccYV78LKRuzjt9howGVwx9c
  • every three months   GLjNmmTZiSxTyFHXAFBjXefmFNWUhTfXjk


Or reducing the block reward every block to effectively halve:

  • every 2 years   GU4oUgmeAC7T9DkgmrD1TjqcgHsdgXAhVU
  • every year   GHxr8JUNtaenHvrgqmt9oXTtZA8dA8DnBH
  • every half year   GRPwr2TiDNNBBUWa36os4Srppy4QdXxa9i
  • every three months   GKKcAv7UyJNLWsSPEwLRuYLBJjkRKvdp5k


The voting will end in one week (18.11.2014 10:00 PM UTC)

After the end of the voting, the funds of these addresses will be added to the
bounty for the first merit which breaks the world record.

I have Windows 7 (64), driver VGA 13.11, AMD APP SDK v2.9 my computer - AMD FX 8150 + R9 280X+ HD 7970+R9 270X = pps 700 000-750 000, CPU load in 70%.

What is your system?
CPU load or GPU load?
The one I'm testing on is: Mint 17 (64), catalyst 14.4, SDK 2.9, CPU Athlon, GPU Radeon 6850. GPU load about 70-80% and pps 0 (I'm not using CPU).

I like to announce a modified version of the CPU-Miner. It's on average about 1000% faster. Yes, no typo, +1000%.

The trick is to only search for gaps that meet the criteria (pool = is a share, solo = is a block) and quickly discard others. 10g/h and 15g/h are not calculated anymore.

The source is available here:
https://bchain.info/gapminer_dcct_mod.zip (https://bchain.info/gapminer_dcct_mod.zip)

Check and compile yourself (just "make" will do the trick).

I hope to see new large gaps and expect some donations (could have just used it myself!):

GeXwYgVQKZWnctitxuJrvNMMZXWv3nd5RM

When using the pool make sure to point it at the port for GPU-mining (=higher target, less load on the pool).

Good job! 10x faster on my CPU. I'm starting CPU-mining, but I'd appreciate the solution of my GPU problem too :)

well, hopefully NOT! It's a best moment to leave windows and switch to any other system. Don't be a slave of Microsoft - compile what you need, when you want, at two (or one) keyboard commands!

You are on the right track, but still about 3x slower than optimal. I am averaging about 1.5 blocks an hour on 2 x Intel Core i7-4770K processors. It is nice to see that someone is enhancing the miner.

You are on the right track, but still about 3x slower than optimal. I am averaging about 1.5 blocks an hour on 2 x Intel Core i7-4770K processors. It is nice to see that someone is enhancing the miner.



But will you release your miner?

Not yet as my implementation of the GPU miner is deadly and will surely kill the coin without a doubt. The coin is too young and let us give it some time to grow. I have mined enough BTCs and XPMs therefore I am going to shelve it at this time.

nice... this should give nice distribution and awareness of this crypto.. very very nice

there is someone doing 26,858,338 PPS there is always a danger of massive dump and some point from this entity, however distribution and rising difficulty will nicely offset this

rich list should fall to the poor list in due time  8) great and funny all this

also at the same time BTC will climb to 1000$ a pop should impact (in the positive) all substantial crypto and GAP is one of them

for your info I tend to well guess BTC pricing and foresaw recent decline.. now watch in the opposite and this time price of BTC will shoot waaay pass 1K

one outstanding "problem" is GPU miner support for NVIDIA cards. many have them especially because of its low amp requirements , when accomplished should see many doing past 10K PPS easily, also cutting the tip of the rich list  8)

that 26K entity very likely is doing AMD farm.. because AWS prices spiked in the recent

Actually that would be me.  Not GPU.  AWS and new miner.  I'll let them run another five hours.  Might add more.  Not worried about the cost.  Maybe we'll break some records.

Edit:

It would be nice if we had another pool to spread the hashrate.  Maybe I'll solo mine.

Edit:

It would be nice if we had another pool to spread the hashrate.  Maybe I'll solo mine.

very cool, another pool would add to distribution in my view one of THE very important factors for success of a crypto coin in general

aaaaactually you want more miners like tens of thousands.. you should see some nice press releases after that (record breaking) but than again if YOU break the record.. you will go down in the history because I am sure you will be listed, XPM does the same  thing with CC (block signature)

nice... this should give nice distribution and awareness of this crypto.. very very nice

there is someone doing 26,858,338 PPS there is always a danger of massive dump and some point from this entity, however distribution and rising difficulty will nicely offset this

rich list should fall to the poor list in due time  8) great and funny all this

also at the same time BTC will climb to 1000$ a pop should impact (in the positive) all substantial crypto and GAP is one of them

for your info I tend to well guess BTC pricing and foresaw recent decline.. now watch in the opposite and this time price of BTC will shoot waaay pass 1K

one outstanding "problem" is GPU miner support for NVIDIA cards. many have them especially because of its low amp requirements , when accomplished should see many doing past 10K PPS easily, also cutting the tip of the rich list  8)

How hard exactly is it to set a record?
Assuming current net hash-rate how long would it take?

 Just curious, seems like it may be a long time

Try solo  ;)
With the new miner you will get much higher primes per seconds when mining solo.

Yes, ths version doesn't crash. But changing -w to 256, 128, 64, 32 or 4096 changes nothing :( the gpu load is high but pps are zero...

I have Windows 7 (64), driver VGA 13.11, AMD APP SDK v2.9 my computer - AMD FX 8150 + R9 280X+ HD 7970+R9 270X = pps 700 000-750 000, CPU load in 70%.

What is your system?
CPU load or GPU load?
The one I'm testing on is: Mint 17 (64), catalyst 14.4, SDK 2.9, CPU Athlon, GPU Radeon 6850. GPU load about 70-80% and pps 0 (I'm not using CPU).

CPU load for one computer (35%) and second (55%), GPU load 80-90%. After how to reconfigure bat file removed kernel.bin?
I not use -w

I like to announce a modified version of the CPU-Miner. It's on average about 1000% faster. Yes, no typo, +1000%.

The trick is to only search for gaps that meet the criteria (pool = is a share, solo = is a block) and quickly discard others. 10g/h and 15g/h are not calculated anymore.


BUGGER!

That was the main trick I was using on my CPU miner!  Guess my run of "cheap" coins is over.

Now you know why I was asking about how many coins the GPU miner was finding, I needed a metric to gauge relative performance.

Good luck, I'll mine for a day or two and see what a difficulty > 23 does to my take home.

You are on the right track, but still about 3x slower than optimal. I am averaging about 1.5 blocks an hour on 2 x Intel Core i7-4770K processors. It is nice to see that someone is enhancing the miner.

Oh yeah. Look who we have here to speak. The one who's well-known for lying.

making GPU miner work with sieve algorithm will take care of that, mine with CPU while you can

what would be really nice is to attract fpga to encode the algo, now that would be something, for that time has to pass I think, imagine size of primes then.. would scare cryptologists  for sure

Just cause you were in the settings of the pool. Thank you for answering :)

Here are my settings bat file for R9 270X: gapminer-gpu.exe -d 0 -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4200 -u user.1 -x password -t 20 --stratum --use-gpu

Working? Remove the --stratum in your connection string.

how to set 4VGAs run together?

only VGA #0 run (with or without "-d 0")
gapminer-gpu.exe -d 0 -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4200 -u user.1 -x password -t 20 --stratum --use-gpu

You need to run a separate instance for each GPU - so you would have 4 start.bat files

gapminer-gpu.exe -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4205 -u user.1 -x password -t 1 --use-gpu -d 0
gapminer-gpu.exe -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4205 -u user.1 -x password -t 1 --use-gpu -d 1
gapminer-gpu.exe -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4205 -u user.1 -x password -t 1 --use-gpu -d 2
gapminer-gpu.exe -o http://mine3.gap.nonce-pool.com -p 4205 -u user.1 -x password -t 1 --use-gpu -d 3

Notice I removed the --stratum and changed your thread count to 1 - this is the CPU threads for the overhead calculations.  I also changed the port # to the higher difficulty port to reduce stress on the pool.

Does the difficulty differ on each ports? Why some of you are setting higher threads number? I was setting 1 or no thread number at all... but still havn't solved my problem with 0 pps on GPU.

yes, port 4200 is the standard (low) difficulty for CPU.  4205 is slightly higher difficulty for windows GPU and 3385 is the stratum port.  As for 0 PPS - it sounds like your GPU(s) are not doing any actual work.  Are you seeing any errors when you start up the miner?  Maybe post a screenshot of the start-up output.

Your thread settings will depend on the core/thread count that your CPU can handle.  If you have a 4 core CPU and 4 GPUs then you want 1 core for each.  If you have an 8 core CPU, then you can increase this to 2 threads per GPU.  The GPU miner is still very CPU intensive, so you don't want to overload it.  I find that I can only support 2 GPUs on my linux miner - even though I have 4 cards :(

If the processor is a good, work all the cards to near 80%
I have so where should the FX 8150: 7970 - 280000 pps, R9 280x - 260 000 pps, R9 270x - 180 000 pps and one computer 720 000 pps.

Its better to use the cpu-miner at the moment. Even if gpu mining is a little faster - it consumes lots of extra energy.

The GPU miner is still very CPU intensive
I've stopped all other processes that use more than few percents CPU, and, yes, gpu miner uses a lot of cpu: one core and a half of second core. GPU load 90%, but still zeroes



EDIT: I've managed to make my GPU work... but only solo, it can't work with the pool. But... solo mining my one CPU has about 60,000 pps and GPU only 3,000 LOL

GAP is dead, supercomputing abusing it with a private cpu/gpu miner, no volume on poloniex, several large botnets active...

I'll focus my CPU power on Riecoin, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=446703 , we are about to break world record in 5 days.

No, the most logical explanation for the increased difficulty is that an individual in control of massive CPU power has decided to use it for Gapcoin mining. I am only interested in algorithmic breakthroughs and not financial profit. But I strongly believe that such a breakthrough may come from the mining community in general because of the financial incentives.

Primecoin, Riecoin, and Gapcoin all have the potential to provide the scientific community with a deeper understanding of prime numbers. And I hope that all these coins live long and prosperous lifes.

Notice I removed the --stratum and changed your thread count to 1 - this is the CPU threads for the overhead calculations.  I also changed the port # to the higher difficulty port to reduce stress on the pool.

Does the difficulty differ on each ports? Why some of you are setting higher threads number? I was setting 1 or no thread number at all... but still havn't solved my problem with 0 pps on GPU.

yes, port 4200 is the standard (low) difficulty for CPU.  4205 is slightly higher difficulty for windows GPU and 3385 is the stratum port.  As for 0 PPS - it sounds like your GPU(s) are not doing any actual work.  Are you seeing any errors when you start up the miner?  Maybe post a screenshot of the start-up output.

Your thread settings will depend on the core/thread count that your CPU can handle.  If you have a 4 core CPU and 4 GPUs then you want 1 core for each.  If you have an 8 core CPU, then you can increase this to 2 threads per GPU.  The GPU miner is still very CPU intensive, so you don't want to overload it.  I find that I can only support 2 GPUs on my linux miner - even though I have 4 cards :(

hello, thank you, so it works similarly to folding when each gpu needs some cpu
this is the output, no errors at all, I'm running with extra-verbose option:

The GPU miner is still very CPU intensive
I've stopped all other processes that use more than few percents CPU, and, yes, gpu miner uses a lot of cpu: one core and a half of second core. GPU load 90%, but still zeroes



EDIT: I've managed to make my GPU work... but only solo, it can't work with the pool. But... solo mining my one CPU has about 60,000 pps and GPU only 3,000 LOL

Have you tried changing your threads to 1 instead of 20?  I'm not sure how the miner would react to this.  I don't think your system really has 20 CPU cores...

GAP is dead, supercomputing abusing it with a private cpu/gpu miner, no volume on poloniex, several large botnets active...

I'll focus my CPU power on Riecoin, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=446703 , we are about to break world record in 5 days.

Supercomputing's posts have already been identified as FUD, I highly doubt such a miner exists. Even the logs he posted aren't real.

As you offer no proof for your claims "large botnet", "no volume", and you also have a negative Trust here, you wont be taken seriously.

If you can show evidence that the logs are false using the block explorer, then I will contribute 10,000 GAPs to be awarded to the miner who breaks the world record. But if you are unable to do so, then you have to contribute 10,000 GAPs to the fund. Fair enough, or are you going to now come up with some excuse like the rest?

Sure I have tried! This was one of my first ideas. There was no reaction, it looked like exactly the same way as giving any other thread number: working fine, zero pps.
The only change was switching to solo mining - the GPU started working then... but at so low pps that I've decided to switch off and stay pool mining with CPUs. Anyway - I don't understand it. CPU has a bit better pps when solo mining, but I'm taking the risk of not-finding a block at all, okay it's clear. But the GPU works while solomining, and doesn't work at all when pool mining?

Thats easy. You want to proof your miner exists - and is considerably faster. But all I see in your logs is public information anyone could extract from the blockchain. Not even if these blocks are yours.

And still you have to explain why your miner is "deadly" as you call it, and its speed wont be compensated by an increased difficulty.



You are unable to provide any evidence that the logs are false - take your choice from a list of donation addresses below:


The options are: halving the block reward

  • every 2 years (no changes, no hard fork)   GSJw8qfMBTrX1p9rRexuek4zXjb8ay3Nev
  • every year   GZHgCFHCwQYZhSqmGAJ7rKLYyo8fBEkgdj
  • every half year   GRNwEjBXhr3ccYV78LKRuzjt9howGVwx9c
  • every three months   GLjNmmTZiSxTyFHXAFBjXefmFNWUhTfXjk


Or reducing the block reward every block to effectively halve:

  • every 2 years   GU4oUgmeAC7T9DkgmrD1TjqcgHsdgXAhVU
  • every year   GHxr8JUNtaenHvrgqmt9oXTtZA8dA8DnBH
  • every half year   GRPwr2TiDNNBBUWa36os4Srppy4QdXxa9i
  • every three months   GKKcAv7UyJNLWsSPEwLRuYLBJjkRKvdp5k


The voting will end in one week (18.11.2014 10:00 PM UTC)

After the end of the voting, the funds of these addresses will be added to the
bounty for the first merit which breaks the world record.

Barts is 67xx / 68xx AMD , I could not get a 6870(Barts) working and had similar results, maybe because they are legacy and missing something?

Dude, for real, did you expect to be welcomed if you come here and basically say "look, my miner is waaaay faster, but I'm not giving it to you, cause then this coin would be dead (for unknown reasons)"?  ;D

Just hilarious to see you get angry ;) Ok, I'll stop. We are fine here.

Some of us are here to break the record, and not using the fastest miner for this is a waste of energy and money. Some people will just stop mining. Or wasting energy. I don't think this is what you are aiming towards.




No worries, I will help Gapcoin break the world record. I still need to optimize the GPU miner for Nvidia (Maxwell) with 2GB of VRAM. For now it only works on R9 cards with 3+ GB of VRAM.

There are more optimizations which can be leveraged into the miner making the existence of an even better miner more than plausible.

If you don't believe them, so be it, but no need to be nasty about it.

Things like this are possible, maybe the catalysts cause such things too. During folding with it for Curecoin I've experienced that this GPU didn't want to work under Mint 17 with new catalysts at all, and I had to use Mint 13 with old catalyst, and then it worked at level comparable to my other GPUs. Now tried the same, but the dependecy problem starts growing from package to package when using older system and I've gave up.

I guess the new cpu miner is not a good idea cause of botnets. It's a two sides of coin again.

And the difference of everyone mining with 10x speed vs 1x is eactly what?

Difference is that CPU-botnets is being profitable again and rise diffs. Or you think botnets is good ? Maybe only for the new Prime record...

no connection anymore. unable to load "gap.nonce-pool.com" (tried different browser, no connestion). tried different miners (cpu+gpu) to connect to the pool, only cpu-solomining with gap-wallet works.

mining other coins still works fine, internet works fine but all things 'round gap don't work...
any ideas? please help!  :-\

Wow, an idiot moderator deleted my previous post. I'll post it again, lets see if they ban my account.

GAP is dead, supercomputing abusing it with a private cpu/gpu miner, no volume on poloniex, several large botnets active...

Guys, i am still trying to understand all about the algo of this coin.

I do understand how the difficulty works : when the difficulty increase, gap and prime size increase too.

But how are calculated the prime we have to find ?
Are they random ?

Starting point is derived from the block you are mining so effectively the starting point is random.  The "absolute end point" is defined by the "shift" which you get to pick.  People only mine part of the "space" which is defined by the sieve size.

Difficulty is logarithmic, it is on the gapcoin website, so a difficulty or 23 is significantly harder than one of 22.

Summary; random range of numbers are scanned looking for a run (currently a few thousand) of composite numbers.

In addition, please see the proof-of-work verification code for restrictions - see lines 99 onwards:
https://github.com/gapcoin/Gapcoin-PoWCore/blob/master/src/PoW.cpp

Also, because the merit of the gap is the ratio of the gap size relative to the natural logarithm of the smaller prime, the size of the prime does not have to increase by much as the difficulty increases.

Not sure if anyone else thinks this is a good idea, but can we replace those 10 & 15 gap metrics with something else?

I am using primes/s and candidates/s eg:

Code:
[2014-11-15 10:59:11] pps: 14669 / 14287  candidates/s 63998895
[2014-11-15 10:59:41] pps: 13121 / 14136  candidates/s 63321793
[2014-11-15 11:00:11] pps: 13572 / 14100  candidates/s 63159069

This is just the number of "numbers" scanned, in effect how fast numbers are skipped/tested.  I just accumulate sievesize for every call of run_sieve.

It is the only way I can see of measuring performance across different miners and different parameters (tuning parameters is why I added it to mine).

The creator said he'd submit it to the recordkeeper for publishing.  Maybe it would be a good idea for @gapcoin to tweet to Wired or Scientific American magazine.  It's certainly an interesting use for an altcoin.

It's quite hard to mine now, when the pool shows 2x more estimated than it really gives, but OK. I'm holding, and I really wish the best to this coin! Let the market react to the useful coin, even once! The community is bored with speculative clones. The coins that do something useful like gapcoin are the hope! I hope that diff will go linearly with price (I hope the investors are NOT idiots).

Sorry, we thought we had the stats pretty close until the release of the new miner, although it is like 10x faster is is not nearly as efficient as finding blocks on the pool their has been about 2x as many shares increase versus blocks found since it's release.

I don't fully understand how the sieve and all works but I would imagine it is much better at finding blocks while solo mining.

I totally agree.  As a coder myself - I write business applications - boring  :P.  I would be totally stoked to write a bit of code that is threatening to break a world record within a month of its initial release.  @j0nn9 - Much respect man.  I love seeing new algos and chasing the rush of the next coin, but this one really captures the imagination.  I'll be mining it at least until we hit the elusive world record.  At this point I don't even care about the price - its more about the chase for the top spot on the prime gap list.

I don't fully understand how the sieve and all works but I would imagine it is much better at finding blocks while solo mining.

The issue is because the new miner quickly dismisses primes below the asked for difficulty. Because you only ask for 13 merit shares your miners have to crunch far more primes instead of dismiss them. This means you will get far more shares with little increase in chance of finding a block. The 2 options I am considering for the pool I am to writing is.

1) Dynamically increase the pool difficulty depending on the current Network difficulty.
2) Add a difficulty switch to the miner. Depending on difficulty depends on how much each of their shares are worth.

Either way, you will need to increase pool difficulty in relation to network difficulty or you will just become less efficient.

Watching this coin!  

Congrats on the record in such a short time.. impressive

regarding the emission curve, definitely would not want to see it shortened. although what about the possibility of a linear emission curve? wouldn't that be the fairest method of coin distribution? who says the reward absolutely needs to halve?? arguably, a reduced block reward, combined with much higher difficulty in 2 years is unfair to future adopters.

Could you explain:   "Cap: about 10 - 30 million GAP"

That's a wide range. What determines the Cap?

Is that cap hard coded into the coin (like Bitcoin's 21 million), or is this figure of "10-30 million" an estimate?  If an estimate, how are you calculating it?

Could it go over 30 million?

Thanks

Yes.  Blocks have variable rewards based on difficulty, so hard to tell exactly what the final amount of coins will be.

I noticed something interesting today and wanted to see if anyone else has had the same experience.

On my i7 cpu I've been using dcct's miner using 7 of its 8 threads. Around 24 hours ago I had to utilize this machine for other work (non cup intensive work) so I set the miner to use only 3 of the 8 threads. I forgot to change it back to 7 before bed but when I woke up I was happy with the results so I let it go another 12 hours.

Now, around 24 hours later, my rate of finding blocks is around 1 for every 200. Normally with 7 threads I was getting around 1 block for every 600.

Using 3 threads I'm at around 490k pps. With 7 threads I'm at around 740k pps.

Going to let it run like this for another few days and will see if it keeps up as the sample size is too small to make a conclusion at this point.

Anyone else have this experience using a lower thread setting?

Hi there,

just want to remind about the ongoing voting:

Voting about changing the block reward halving:

Every option is represented by Gapcoin address.
Every 0.00000001 GAP (1 Satoshi) counts as one vote.

The Gapcoin address with the most GAP will win the voting.
Then we will make a hard fork (or not) according to the chosen option.


The options are: halving the block reward

  • every 2 years (no changes, no hard fork)   GSJw8qfMBTrX1p9rRexuek4zXjb8ay3Nev
  • every year   GZHgCFHCwQYZhSqmGAJ7rKLYyo8fBEkgdj
  • every half year   GRNwEjBXhr3ccYV78LKRuzjt9howGVwx9c
  • every three months   GLjNmmTZiSxTyFHXAFBjXefmFNWUhTfXjk


Or reducing the block reward every block to effectively halve:

  • every 2 years   GU4oUgmeAC7T9DkgmrD1TjqcgHsdgXAhVU
  • every year   GHxr8JUNtaenHvrgqmt9oXTtZA8dA8DnBH
  • every half year   GRPwr2TiDNNBBUWa36os4Srppy4QdXxa9i
  • every three months   GKKcAv7UyJNLWsSPEwLRuYLBJjkRKvdp5k

The voting will end in one week (18.11.2014 10:00 PM UTC)

After the end of the voting, the funds of these addresses will be added to the
bounty for the first merit which breaks the world record.

Current status: http://coinia.net/gapcoin/voiting.php (http://coinia.net/gapcoin/voiting.php)

Sounds like a run of good luck to me.  What I've been doing on windows is setting the priority on the gapminer process to 'low'.  This way I don't see any performance decrease on my system when running other applications.  When the CPU is not needed, it revs gapminer back up to full power.

PS: We also got listed in The Top-20 Prime Gaps for all merits  ;D
http://primerecords.dk/primegaps/gaps20all.htm (http://primerecords.dk/primegaps/gaps20all.htm)

Let's fill the entire list with Gapcoin!

I see 6 bounties on the OP

I am pledging 15 gaps for each bounty there is and will be created until i say i dont :P

So where can i send some gapcoins for the bounties?

I just created an address for each bounty:
(the first merit bounty was already paid)

  • working cuda miner binaries + source code   GdtFcBN2xix3pNVZV7EjWuLS1Tkp6jw56B
  • second running pool   GbZMaSMvzgYUpLHLRCcsxhVeBLvf9GUo3n
  • first merit within the top 10   GaTLAKiA8jVsFTdcUFL1uDNGKvaBzbQDbf
  • first merit within the top 5   GPqdXdMGJjaZk2EZYgbxPb692jsBpzUoCf
  • first merit, which breaks the world record   GNxcqXsAQMN1ShU3M5kmQko13zhzvciMRE

Once the requirement for a bounty is fulfilled, the among of the respective address will be credit to the finder / developer.

Sent :)

There isn't a cuda miner yet - that's why there is still a bounty.  The bounty that was paid was for the first merit within the top 20.

Voting about changing the block reward halving:

Every option is represented by Gapcoin address.
Every 0.00000001 GAP (1 Satoshi) counts as one vote.

The Gapcoin address with the most GAP will win the voting.
Then we will make a hard fork (or not) according to the chosen option.


The options are: halving the block reward

  • every 2 years (no changes, no hard fork)   GSJw8qfMBTrX1p9rRexuek4zXjb8ay3Nev
  • every year   GZHgCFHCwQYZhSqmGAJ7rKLYyo8fBEkgdj
  • every half year   GRNwEjBXhr3ccYV78LKRuzjt9howGVwx9c
  • every three months   GLjNmmTZiSxTyFHXAFBjXefmFNWUhTfXjk


Or reducing the block reward every block to effectively halve:

  • every 2 years   GU4oUgmeAC7T9DkgmrD1TjqcgHsdgXAhVU
  • every year   GHxr8JUNtaenHvrgqmt9oXTtZA8dA8DnBH
  • every half year   GRPwr2TiDNNBBUWa36os4Srppy4QdXxa9i
  • every three months   GKKcAv7UyJNLWsSPEwLRuYLBJjkRKvdp5k

The voting will end in one week (18.11.2014 10:00 PM UTC)

After the end of the voting, the funds of these addresses will be added to the
bounty for the first merit which breaks the world record.
