VERY Happy to have discovered this coin!

Amazingly Fast Transfers! Typical Wallet to Wallet transfers are ready to spend in 30 seconds! Similar speed of a debit card!

Still early in it's emission life. Only about 40% mined so far.

I'm throwing all my mining rig CPU's at it! They weren't doing anything anyway, so why not?

I've got 8 Xeons and tinkering with Xeon Phi's for this one, sugarmaker looks like it might work on KNC/KNL co processors. Server boards seem better in terms of performance for the native quad channel compatibility

Out of curiosity, about what kind of performance gain are you seeing going from dual to quad channel?

As I understand it, this algo is all about fitting in and using L2/L3 cache for peak performance.

Approximately 1.5-2MB cache per thread.

Should be out within 48 hours.

We are going to release miniZ 1.0f in a few hours! Hopefully it will be on time for the new ZHashOS release  Smiley

Hey miniZ!

Thanks for the heads up!

Sure! We can wait a little bit.

Looking forward to your release!

Working on a new release of ZhashOS with new Nvidia drivers that will support RTX 20XX GPU's.

Will include Gminer 1.08 and a few bug fixes as well.

Should be out within 48 hours.

Here is a little more detail about our watchdog function we built into ZhashOS.

When ever a GPU crashes, we log the details in our zhash.log file including "which" GPU had the problem and what it was.

This makes much easier to diagnose the problem GPU and address it precisely.

Here is one such entry in our log file to explain.

Code:
11-08-2018 19:34:15  GPU:0 has low Utilization:17
11-08-2018 19:35:45  GPU:0 has low Utilization:48
11-08-2018 19:35:46  Watchdog has detected a GPU failure. Restarting Miner

As you can see here, when a GPU makes multiple "problem" log entries within a 2 minute time frame, we know it is/has crashed and we take appropriate action to restart it.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: miniZ, a new fast and friendly Equihash <144,5> Cuda miner. on: November 10, 2018, 03:28:01 AM
Hi, Just thought you would like to know it does work with ZhashOS using Nvidia 348.111 driver.

Really like the UI report information. Sol rate was a little slower using the same O/C settings for EWBF.

I was seeing 35.5-36 Sol/s with 1070ti @ 104w, +240cc, +1290mc. I would normally see 36-42 Sol/s.

But I only ran it for a few minutes as it is late here.

I'll try to see if the app can allow a higher O/C bump tomorrow and let you know.

I think you are off to a really good start, but will need to get more optimization to be head on competitive.

Looking forward to your continued efforts!

Just wanted to give you a update on this post and to correct a error in it. I indicated that it worked with a 348.111 driver.

I have now corrected that post to show it is the 384.111 driver that it works with.

When I posted, it was late for me and I was pretty tired at the moment.

My sincere apologies for taking so long in recognizing the error. 

I just discovered it now as I was viewing your website looking to see what version Cuda you are compiled with and noticed the 348.111 statement.

I sincerely hope this error has not caused you or anyone any difficulties. From what I can see here, no one has mentioned anything about it and it is very unlikely anyone would be using a driver that old for mining anyway.

So what version Cuda are you compiling with?

I am in the process of compiling/testing both 390.87 & 410.73 drivers and I now am seeing a slight Sol rate increase between a competitor's cuda 8.0 and cuda 9.1 versions.

So I wanted to let you know that if you are compiling with cuda 8.0, you may want to offer a cuda 9.1 or higher version as well.

This may be a piece of the puzzle in improving your Sol rate even further.

Hope this Helps

Fair enough, I can understand your position.

But please remember this conversation the next time you have to "administrate" your OS.

Not the hardware or the miner app or the coin/pool setup. Just the OS.

And then please calculate all the "costs" of your time for doing it.

That 1% fee will become a real bargain.

IMHO, If you have to spend more than 60 seconds extra a month, then this is the better deal.

is there a benchmarked benefit to mine on this instead of win10?

Nothing Benchmarked.

I just recently posted a extensive reply showing where ZhashOS is more power efficient than the OP's setup by over 80 watts. Has a lot of pictures detailing the test and results.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5057989.msg47505668#msg47505668

Which as a side note, I'm currently researching reducing power consumption even further.

In regards to Win10, AFAIK, Win10 requires a hard or SSD drive and virtual memory in order to run.

ZhashOS requires neither.

A OS with a running hard/SSD drive with virtual memory on it being accessed IS going to consume more power than a OS without one. It is as simple as that.

I also have several reports where new "first time" users have been able to get mining on ZhashOS within minutes of first boot.

So you have to ask yourself...what is your time worth to you?

For most people of mining caliber, it is pretty darn expensive.

I want my pc & rigs to be a appliance that just flat works.

I haven't had a OS update in years and I've NEVER had a virus.

I turn my appliance on and it JUST...FLAT...WORKS!

My time is to precious to me to allow it to do anything else....

According to wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_operating_systems#Public_servers_on_the_Internet

The 2015 W3COOK top 1 million Web Servers Survey, Shows Linux owns 96.6% of the market share.

There is a reason why Linux is the top choice of web server sysadmins....reliability!

And I view mining to be of a similar reliability need.

Exactly how much money are you making when the rig is down?

Not to say Linux is perfect, Nothing is perfect that is human made.

But having sysadmin'd both OS's, I have chosen Linux for it's reliability.

And I have enjoyed the extra time that choice has afforded me.

Hi, getting a low hash with this miner, around 25 sol/s per card (1080ti 11Gb) is this right?

Thanks

hmmm, which algo? that seems way to low if it is 144_5. I tested Gminer 1.07 on a 1070ti and got 60 Sol/s in ZhashOS with it.

I set:

Power: 120 watts
cc: 240
mc: 1292

I think a 1080ti likes around 170 watts though.

Lapa_nni, I'm not the wallet expert here. But you need to give more information for some one to be of any help.

Which Wallet?
What is the error message?

If no one reply's here, I would suggest you go to discord and post in the Russian forum. I am sure someone there could get you assistance. https://discordapp.com/invite/u3dkbFs

Bitcoin Gold fell hardly to its almost bottom.
So, it's time to get start accumulating Bitcoin GOld, in my opinion, after looking at the coin's price chart.

It keeps coming up as the most profitable coin to mine at the moment. Even if you don't think it will go up by much, it is still worth mining it.

Hey Fellow Miners, Just a FYI, ZhashOS Release 3 is out.

You can mine BTG with ZhashOS.

ZhashOS is very power efficient. Here is a link where I just posted a extensive reply showing where ZhashOS used LESS POWER than the OP's setup by over 80 watts. Has a lot of pictures detailing the test and results.

Good job!

Great to see that miniZ miner is implemented in the new ZhashOS release.

Because of the fast pace of new releases from miners, it would be nice to implement a friendly way for users to update them to the latest release. This would help ZhashOS to always have the best mining performance.

Latest release miniZ v1.0e available @ https://miniz.ch/download/



Yes, Thank you for your suggestion! I agree. However, we are still advancing development of this OS.

Plenty of new features are in the works still. So releases will be coming out fairly regularly.

Once that slows down, we will start releasing packages for updates.

FollowWings thought he was going to have to stop mining in ZhashOS and switch to windows in order to watch a youtube video.

I told him it would very likely work with ZhashOS.

So he eventually tried it in ZhashOS and he was amazed that it was able to display the 4k video with only about a 10% reduction in mining speed.

He was not able to do that in windows because it would crash the miner with his rig. Not so with ZhashOS.

PS: He took the pic with his phone, so it came out sideways. But you get the idea.

I had a some spare time today, so I decided to temporarily slap together a test rig similar to the OP's setup.

I couldn't get it exact but very close and I WAS able to fairly duplicate the power draw from the GPU's to show that ZhashOS is using LESS power as I stated before.

I had to gather a few GPU's from other rigs to do this for the moment. This test rig is using a celeron G3930 CPU. Same as the OP's. I couldn't gather 4 1070ti's, but I was able to gather 2 1070ti's and 2 1070's. BUT I set all the GPU's to draw 148 watts in the ZhashOS SetupWiz application.

So my GPU's were drawing MORE than the 564 Watts the OP was drawing. I did this to make sure I wasn't using less from the GPU's.

I also took 16MP pictures so you will be able to zoom in via "Ctrl +" in your browser to see the details if you like.

OK, so 1st pic is showing ZhashOS booted into the GUI desktop and idling. It is drawing a mere 52 watts. Power actually bounced between 52-54 watts while I was taking some pictures.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/1BootedIdle.jpg

2nd pic is showing nvidia-smi showing the 4 gpus idling but consuming 32 of the 52 watts ZhashOS is using. So theoretically bare naked ZhashOS booted would draw ~20 watts.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/2NvidiaSmi.jpg

3rd pic is a closeup of the nvidia-smi screen showing a clearer view. As a side note, I just realized I left a dummy plug in GPU3, which ZhashOS thought I wanted to be in dual monitor mode and assigned some extra memory and power usage to it. I probably would have been 2-4 watts lower than the 52 watts at idle without it. Oh well, that's what happens when you rush.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/3SmiCloseup.jpg

4th pic is a closeup of the power meter for clarity.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/4MeterCloseup.jpg

5th pic is a closeup of the SetupWiz screen. Here you will see I set the GPU's 0-3 to draw 148 watts and set a mild overclock. This was a temporary test setup. I didn't want to spend a lot of time on tuning it in.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/5ZhashOSWizSettings.jpg

6th pic Shows it in action mining using EWBF. There is a window below the miner showing GPU measurements updating once every 10 seconds. Activating this is a checkbox setting in SetupWiz.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/6mining.jpg

7th pic shows a closeup on the mining in action for a clearer view.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/7miningCloseup.jpg

8th pic shows a closeup of the meter for clarity.

http://zhashos.altcap.biz/power/8miningMeterCloseup.jpg

So this clearly shows ZhashOS is not just like any other OS. We heavily focused on power efficiency when we assembled this mining OS. So that ended up saving over 80 watts over the OP's setup even while we set the GPU's to consume slightly more power.

FYI, 83 watts x 24 hours x 30 days = 59,760 watt hours (~60 kwh)

60 kwh x $0.145 kwh = $8.70 savings per month. Of coarse it will be even more if you pay more for power.

We estimate our dev fee would be LESS than $1.00 for this rig for the full mining month. This IS a "Money Good" proposition and a excellent "value" in this bear market we are currently in.



ZhashOS forum: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4481713.msg40261859#msg40261859
How do you explain this power economy ?
I tested yesterday the last version of your OS and the perfs was exactly the same as with Ubuntu, Cuda 8 and EWBF 0.6.
I not mesured the power consumption, but I think i is the same to (exept at the beginng when the fan are in high power with your OS).

Hashrate should be the same between the two. Where we excel is in power consumption. Which is now actually more important in this bear market we are in.

The answer is very simple but not as easy to accomplish.

The foundational OS is built to be resource gentle. Similar as google built Android ( which is foundationally built on Linux) to be resource gentle.

If you compare the download and install size of ubuntu vs ZhashOS, you will see we are about 1/4 the size. Our download is around 500 MB and it can install into a small as a 2GB pendrive.

We have stripped away a lot of unnecessary bloat that ubuntu carry's. Plus we also stripped away a lot of the unnecessary running services and processes that ubuntu runs. Plus we are built to run from a pendrive so we have no need for a harddrive and need ZERO virtual memory (swap file).

You add this all up and ZhashOS can use LESS power than other bloated OS's.

Also, we do run the fans at your target max speed that you have set in the SetupWiz for the first 3 minutes. We do this to wait for the GPU to get into operating temperature. We then activate smart fan afterwards and adjust the fan speed downward to learn where it is best set to. Doing it this way is much gentler on the GPU chip.

No sense in slowing down a fan to below were it is going to have to run and possibly allow a GPU to go over target temperature while SmartFan is "learning" where it needs to be set to.

Don't know where you have set the target max fan speed to. I normally set mine around 60-65% on most of my rigs. Unless, I'm really cranking up the power for a Hot Coin at the moment.

Hope this Helps
