Team Red Miner v0.6.1 released

https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Changes in v0.6.1
  • Added pool failover and load balancing.
  • Added better error messages when failing to allocate eth DAG buffers.
  • Added server name for TLS SNI.
  • Added automatic setting for environment variables for 4GB GPUs.
  • Extended maximum length of usernames and passwords (for some merged mining setups).
  • Added report of pool stats.
  • Changed initial pool auto detect mode to eth proxy.
  • Various fixes for submitting hashrate to pools.


It's been a long time coming, but we finally did it; we added pool failover support Smiley
We also added pool hashrate stats to help with tracking multi-pool use.
For the more advanced users, we also support load balancing pool strategies.  (See the --help output for more info)
If you want to try it out, there is an example start_multipool.sh/bat file included in the miner packages.

Hello. It seems that the load on the Grin29 Radeon VII is not optimal enough. the card's power consumption jumps back and forth. Are there plans to fix this in future versions?

Unfortunately that's just the nature of the cuckoo algos.
They start out with a very compute intensive first step and then the following steps are memory intensive.
So the power will go up during the compute parts and down during the memory parts.

Yes, I'm find it and enable allready. Now waiting for bug reproduction...

Questions on eth mining:
- if I have 8Gb cards but want to use A varinat of config. What best config would be for A? The same number as for B, or not?
- it's need to add option to force autoconfig only with A config.
- is there some command for setting intensity? For lowering mining intensity on some card.

Thanks for your work! Waiting updates.

You can specify configs for the cards like with the cn_config, but it's eth_config instead.  To make all cards run A mode, you can use --eth_config=A
You can set a specific mode and intensity with something like so: --eth_config=A300
You can also provide a list with one entry per card, like so: --eth_config=A300,B400,A,B

And it's need to optimize speed... On Phoenix with double kernels my RX 580 gives about 600KH/s (about 2%) more speed. Even if 0,65% dev fee not true, speed on TRM eth too low in compare with PM.

I'm guessing you haven't read any of the last ~20 posts in this thread.  You might want to go back and look through them a bit.
TL;DR: Phoenix miner reports hashrate ~2.9% higher than it actually gets.  So by your measurement, we're getting about 0.9% better actual hashrate (I.E. your pool hashrate will go up 0.9%).

kerney666, Today my rig, connected to nicehash with TRM eth start to recieve connections errors from pool and reconnect again and again but always connection refused by pool. I noticed this only after more than an hour of this errors while I had my way home...
I thought that my connection is dead, or pool on service... But closing miner and restart him solves the problem.
What it was?

Hi UnclWish,

We've seen things like this happen in the past when a pool has banned an IP, but that usually only happens if the miner does something like submit a lot of invalid shares.
Do you have a log of when this happened?
I'd be interested to see the part of the log when it stopped mining and started having this problem.
No, I haven't rejected shares. Only several. And I didn't change anything with connection, even didn't restarted it. So my IP stays the same.
How to enable logging? I make log and when problem repeats post it here.

You can enable logging by adding the following option to the command line:
--log_file=trm_log.txt

Where trm_log.txt is the name of the log file to write out.

Cuckarood29 will no longer be active on Grin's 2nd Hard Fork around Jan 15, 2020,
to be replaced by Cuckaroom29:

https://www.grin-forum.org/t/next-pow-cuckaroom-unveiled-at-grincon1

Cuckaroom miners can first be tested on floonet which hard forks around Dec 19.

Thanks for the heads-up, we'll do our best to support it by the fork.

please include the pool fail-over in the next release. This is a very important option.
Thanks.

Just to note that I do use this mine for all of my AMD GPUs

Hi Apprentice,

Apologies that we didn't get this done in this release.  We recognize that pool failover is an important feature, and we will be adding it in the next release.
To help us get it right, could you describe the failover and/or load balancing features you would like to see added?

Team Red Miner v0.6.0 released

https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Changes in v0.6.0
  • Added ethash algo support.
  • Relaxed ssl/tls cert chain verification.

We've added ethash algo support!

We've put a ton of effort into this release to deliver what we believe is the best ethash miner for AMD GPUs.
Performance advantage over existing miners will vary depending on GPU model and tuning and we've seen results ranging from +0 to +15%.
Vega and VII GPUs tend to see the most benefit, with Vega56s w/ Hynix mem and VIIs doing exceptionally well.
Polaris GPUs will typically see a very modest improvement in hashrate, but should also see some lowered power usage as well.

Please checkout the ETHASH_GENERAL_TUNING.txt doc in the miner release package for more details on tuning.

NOTE: We have observed some anomalous behavior with miner reported vs pool hashrates in competing miners.
We suggest that anyone comparing miners against each other should perform long (24hr+) tests and compare poolside hashrates only.
The more poolside shares that are taken into account during the test, the more accurate the results will be.
We will be posting more information on this soon, as well as tools for externally verifying miner hashrates.

As always, we encourage everyone to post their results and let us know how the miner performs Smiley

Team Red Miner v0.5.9 released

https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Changes in v0.5.9
  • Added x16rv2 for the upcoming Ravencoin fork.
  • Optimization work on x16r: +8-10% hashrate depending on clocks.
  • Optimization work on x16r: mem clock no longer as important.
  • Issue fix: kernels split into multiple binaries to fix linux amdgpu-pro driver issues.

We've added x16rv2 algo for the upcoming Ravencoin fork! (Also BitCash and a few others)
We've also put a ton of effort to squeeze out as much performance as we could for the x16* algos in this release, with an up to 10% speed-up.

While the biggest change in this release was the addition of x16rv2, there are also some fixes for CN algos to work around driver bugs/crashes.
If anyone was having issues with CN algos resulting in crashes in v0.5.8, we suggest trying v0.5.9.

Team Red Miner v0.5.8 released

https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Changes in v0.5.8
  • Added Chukwa-512 algo For Turtlecoin (trtl_chukwa).
  • Issue fix: kernels not loaded properly for Conceal.
  • Issue fix: added logic for pool reconnect on N rejected shares in a row (see --pool_max_rejects=N).

The main change in this release is that we've added support for the Chukwa algo for Turtle Coin!
This algo runs particularly well on the VIIs, so if you have some I suggest giving it a spin Smiley

Hello, @todxx ! If one card crashes, miner stops finding shares on all gpus, but continues getting jobs. is there a way to avoid this?




That is rather odd and should definitely not be happening.  Can you tell us a bit more about your setup? 
Which OS version are you using? What version drivers are you running? Which version of the miner are you running?
Do the stats still display when you press 's' ?  How do you know if it's just one GPU that crashes?

how to run ccx Huh what command line

Hi qwep1,

You can run CN conceal the same way as cnr, except use "cn_conceal" as the algorithm instead of "cnr".

Team Red Miner v0.5.7 released

https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Changes in v0.5.7
  • Added CN conceal algo for Conceal (CCX).
  • Added cuckarood29 algo for grin.


This release brings a couple new algos: CN conceal and cuckarood29!

CN conceal is a bit picky about memory timings, so please checkout the CN_MAX_YOU_VEGA.txt doc before switching your rigs to it.

How much memory is needed for cuckarood29?

Team Red Miner v0.5.7 released

https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Changes in v0.5.7
  • Added CN conceal algo for Conceal (CCX).
  • Added cuckarood29 algo for grin.


This release brings a couple new algos: CN conceal and cuckarood29!

Cuckarood29 is quite picky about memory timings.  Tight timings are needed to get good performance on this algo, however this algo is very memory heavy and timings that are stable on other algos may not be stable here.
For ballpark hashrates, we've seen 580s run between 3.5g/s and 3.8g/s, and Vega64s range between 6g/s and 7.4g/s depending on clocks and timings.

Team Red Miner v0.5.6 released

https://github.com/todxx/teamredminer/releases

Changes in v0.5.6
  • MTP improvements for Vega and Polaris (+1-3% hashrate, improved efficiency, esp Polaris)

As kerney666 already mentioned this release includes some improvements for MTP, getting both higher hashrate and consuming less power Smiley

MTP improvements and benchmarks

To people interested in MTP: we just released an improved version in v0.5.6, todxx will update the ann title shortly. In short, you should see a little more hash (1-3%) for a overall lower power draw than before. On most Polaris cards, the power draw has been reduced significantly.

Since the Zcoin official sgminer was released with benchmark nrs vs TRM, I took the time to produce our own benchmarks, hopefully with enough data so users easily can reproduce the tests.


TRM vs Zcoin official sgminer
-----------------------------
amdgpu-pro 18.50, listed clocks are powerplay table clocks, not effective clocks.

Note that high clocks have been chosen for benchmark purposes, the one exception
being the second test set with lower clocks for the Vega 64 LC. We do recommend
tuning down clocks rather than using the benchmark configurations below.

Negative power draw difference means lower power draw for TRM.

Hashrates are short term max speed hash rates, not long term averages affected by
pad rebuild pauses.

Note: for 580s, the nrs below might differ significantly between Windows and Linux.
This is related to driver implementations and has nothing to do with the miners.

GPU           CoreClk   MemClk   Sgminer     TRM         HR chg   Power draw diff
Vega 64 LC    1500      1107     3.33 MH/s   3.52 MH/s   + 5.7%   - 5W
Vega 64 LC    1150       500     2.32 MH/s   3.00 MH/s   +29.3%   +20W
Vega 56@64    1407      1107     2.94 MH/s   3.12 MH/s   + 6.1%   - 5W
Vega 56 Hynix 1407       945     2.97 MH/s   3.15 MH/s   + 6.1%   - 2W
570 Nitro+    1215      2050     1.59 MH/s   1.71 MH/s   + 7.5%   - 4W
580 Nitro+    1215      2050     1.77 MH/s   1.92 MH/s   + 8.5%   - 3W

Any info hashrate c31 for rx 580?

Depends on the card and tuning (also the OS you're running on), but ballpark range is 0.5 to 0.6 g/s.

WOW you guys, 1.35GPS on Radeon VII running C31... I really wish you guys would implement BEAM with uplift as you did grin for AMD cards. AMAZING JOB!!!

Thanks sharmanov Smiley

We're working on adding some other cuckoo cycle algos first, but we would eventually like to hit the equihash algos too.  It will probably be a while until we get there though.
