1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: PhoenixMiner 4.2c: fastest Ethereum/Ethash miner with lowest devfee (Win/Linux) on: June 29, 2019, 10:10:55 AM
I have a few nVidia 1080Ti mining the ETH. I noticed the hash rate decreased about 5% in the last few months. Is it due to the DAG file size similar to old AMD cards?
you are complaining about 5% drop in the hash rate while there are other coins that you can mine with your 1080ti that are nearly 100% more profitable than ETH   Roll Eyes Huh
Hello guys,

I have the same issue with 7 x GPU 1070. In the last months from 230 Mh dropped now to 215-216 Mh ... I don't know why and I want to solve somehow the hash rate problem if it is possible.

Thanks!

PhoenixMiner 4.1c added to https://www.minermonitoring.com/

Join our discord https://discord.gg/aGGaeqq

also, you can check the speed of the miner on different rigs using the benchmark page: https://minermonitoring.com/benchmark
I have some doubts on that benchmark:
GeForce GTX 1070   33.05 Mh/s   ethash   1493Mhz   4608MHz   96W   Win. (EthControl)   388.13   PM 4.1c - ETH

I'm running with:
60% power, -150 core clock and +780 mem clock and I have around 32.5 - 32.8 ... depends..and the power is about ~ 100 W / card
Ok, I know there is no additional info regarding card brand and other settings but it's quite strange, I run the cards higher and I don't get over 33 Mh/s  Huh

Regards and have a nice weekend!

Maybe its not the same memory type...AMD cards vary wildly depending on memory manufacturer, and although we can modify BIOS-es,
final result still depend a lot on memory manufacturer

Yes, agree with you, that's why I said there are others things between. We all want to "suck" all from this cards with minimum power Smiley
Anyway, with the new version, PhoenixMiner 4.2c I'm back with 230.xxx Mh/s (7 cards) on one rig (driver 391.35) and 229.xxx on the second one (driver 419.35 + all updates on windows - i will install again the driver with DDU, maybe will be a change because it was an update, if not I will change with an old driver).

Thank you PhoenixMiner for your response.
Yes, it is strange because only 2-3 cards have this issue, go under 32.xxx and on both rigs is the same. If it's how you said then all should have the same speed ... this is the theory Smiley
I will try to update also the driver, maybe ... I will change something or I will destroy everything Smiley)

thanks and regards!


I also recommend all cards are seated correctly in any associated risers. All cables firmly in place.
I will check also the connections but it is strange because on 2 rigs I have the same issue. From 230 mhs to 225 (hashrate decrease on 3 cards).
Thanks for info!

Hello guys!

I have one issue and I don't know where to start. Couple of weeks before(2-3 weeks before) everything was fine .
I have 2 rigs x 7 cards, 1070, win 10, driver 398.36 and Phoenix Miner 4.0b and the speed was 230-231 for each rig, it was perfect since I changed with that DAG from 2.9e version.
All cards was around 32.7-8 and now both are with 225-226 total and I don't understand why...2-3 cards are under 32...
I have:
power: 60%
clock: -150
memory: 780
Maybe if I will update the drivers I will solve the issue? But this is strange because if it is like this all the cards will be the same.
On both rigs to have the same issue, this is why I don't understand, the same speed... if there was an issue with the setup, maybe it was different :\

thanks and regards!  Wink

This miner fucks out on cuda


Hey dude.
From your posts I am convinced you don't have the brain to handle something like a miner.
You come across as a moron, and I believe it.
You should not mine,  try ping-pong or something that doesn't require intelligence.
I seriously doubt you know which end of a video card to plug into a computer.

Hope these words weren't too big for you, I tried to keep it simple.
Have someone read this to you.




Sorry I offended you , was a bit tired after struggling with miner crashes right through the night. You seem very in love with the word "I". Just a word of caution , please do not adress anybody in person like you type on the keyboard, people can be very dangerous, better only on the net, much safer this way.
Usually...almost on any forum / thread you want to find something helpful related to your issue, that's the idea. It's not the right place to argue/dispute such things.
In my opinion both of you start with your left leg, it's not fine when you start to swear/offend someone ... even if it's in real life or online Smiley
Just take chill and try to solve your issues with miner. I'm sure someone will help with the right info if you try to explain what's the issue, what error/behavior do you have with the miner.

Have a nice day !

Don't mine on the big stupid pools choose a smaller independent one like coinfoundry.org and use Claymore's miner it's the best miner
Very nice answer, I must admit  Smiley
When you make a statement usually you need to have some proof or evidence why it's as you said.
About small vs big pools the internet/forums is/are full of debates so ... it's your choice if you mine in a small or big pool
- On the long term it's the same, not a big diff (on big pools you get more small rewards, smaller pools are less frequent but larger rewards)
- It's important how they manage the pool
- Are they responsive when you need help
- Fees
- and other things ....
Also, I agree .... we need to spread the hashrate, and avoid concentrating in one pair of hands.

Regarding miner, in my opinion, Phoenix it's better than Claymore. For me the miner run very well and I have a better hashrate vs Claymore.
For 14x1070 I have 460-461 Mh on ETH with Phoenix vs Claymore with ~ 446 Mh so do the math ....

Hi,
have maybe someone .bat file for automatic relaunch PM if miner crashed or stopped working?


Just a few minutes to take a look on the first post and you will find out. It's that simple...

I saw this

-rmode <n> Selects the restart mode when a GPU crashes or freezes:
     0: disabled - miner will shut down instead of restarting
     1: restart with the same command line options - this is the default
     2: reboot (shut down miner and execute reboot.bat)

but when I download PM not include reboot.bat file.

You can just copy your start_miner.bat and rename it to reboot.bat. Same parameters Smiley

Ok I will try this advice, I hope to will be working this Smiley
4play,

If you want to restart your rig you should use -rmode 2 and to create a reboot.bat file and put this line command "shutdown /r /t 5 /f".
Also, you need to disable windows error reporting, if you search a few posts / pages back (page 115, post #2291) you will find some links and a bat file for tweaks.

Regards

This is my reboot file

Code:

REM IMPORTANT: Replace the ETH address with your own ETH wallet address in the -wal option (Rig001 is the name of the rig)

pause

I hope to this correct
It's enough if you put only "shutdown /r /t 5 /f" command (without comma) in your reboot.bat file (and of course...to have your reboot.bat file in the same directory with miner files and again....disable windows error reporting). You can test if you want ... try to OC a GPU a little bit more just to have an error.

1000x times tnx its working. Really tnx a lot Smiley
Hi,

No problem, don't worry.
I know you’ll do the same for someone else.

When the GPU cause the error. The windows has open the error dialog box , I had to close the box then the miner can be restart. Is there anyway to stop this step?

I had already close the error reporting service of window, and I didnt have this with claymore miner. I prefer to use phoenix but this step consume much of my time.
Hi,

You have this issue because you didn't disable the Error Reporting in Windows (maybe you didn't disable and you still have a glitch somewhere) and your "-rmode 1" or "-rmode 2" command in miner code and reboot.bat file won't work.
You can search on google or you can use some of this links
1_Click_Here
2_Click_Here
3_Click_Here

or, if you want more things to change/tweak on the rig you can use this little bat file ....

Works like a charm. Is there any Powerlimit command line for Nvidia?
Hi,

Why you don't want to use MSI Afterburner or Nvidia Inspector? Easy to use both.   
If the answer it's "yes" could you explain please...why?  Huh

so noone doing restart their rigs..and phoenix team didnt answer to me Sad 

i want to restart my rig when rig freezer..how can i do this?what i must write my my file?

when your whole rig freezes (unable to do anything in windows) you need a external piece of hardware to do it.
something like this cost $5 from aliexpress


ty for answer..but not whole rig..i want to restart my rig when gpu freeze or miner..claymore using -r 1...phoenix ? i am using  -rmode 2 but didnt work Sad

-r 1 does work in phoenix too, make sure you have a reboot.bat in the same folder with same parameters as start_miner.
but restarting the rig (computer u mean?) im not sure its possible with phoenix.
i've made a program myself to handle it.

Is there a way to name the rig besides putting it behind the wallet address?  My pool doesn't like that format...

-eworker rig1


ok ty bro..
Hi,

You don't need a program for that, use "-rmode 2" in your Phoenix miner line command and in the same folder you must have "reboot.bat" file with "shutdown /r /t 5 /f".

Pm 3.0c working on my rig 36h



Pm 3.0c working on my rig  i have this : GPU 4:unable to get fan speed - unknown error (999)

I settings OC lower but come back help DEV


Maybe it's not so important but you can try. I have one rig and it's working very well and on another one I had some problems.
I've tried with windows 10 1803, windows 10 1709 16299.192/402 and several drivers for nvidia.
I said..ok, let try to install 1709 untouched, win 10 1709 16299.19 and had the same issue - "unable to get fan speed - unknown error (999)" and every time was on PCI x16 and tried to change the GPU's between them but always the same ... first GPU.
With that windows 10 1709 16299.19 I said..let try to update, and now it's updated to 16299.431 (the same with the other rig that it's working without 999 error), the driver updated itself to 388.13 (previous was 387.92) and it's working for the moment. I'm still testing.

I will come back with feedback after another 1-2 days Wink

Regards
@Digital_Seytan
After 18 hours the system it's stable, without error "GPU X:unable to get fan speed - unknown error (999)"
Maybe some update from windows 10 1709 16299.431 solve a problem or something and get rid of that error.
I don't know what to say but you can try this option ... if you have time.

Just tried 3.0b and the first time I launched it my gtx 1080 started mining at 42mh when the best I could get before was 37mh. I reset my PC and now I'm back to 37mh, any idea how I could get the 42mh back?

I have proof, see card #3 here:

Don't panic, it's not the real speed. If you read some post behind you will see.

GPU3: unable to get fan speed - Unknown Error (999),what is the problem, the driver 390.65,PhoenixMiner_3.0b?Huh?
Hi! and Welcome to the club.
I've search a little bit on the internet and there are a lot of people with this error and  you will have also the nvlddmkm error event id 14 if you look in logs on windows.
Just a short history and why I think it's not the OC the principal issue because there are some with this issue without OC....

1. before Phoenix I've run with Claymore (my brother still use Claymore 11.6 and we have the same GPU's - 1070 G1 Gaming - Micron memory)
Short description on 1070 G1 Gaming OC
Claymore 11.6 - TDP 60%, 0 CC, +800 Memory with Afterburner and it's working flawlessly for weeks without a crash - 226 Mh/s for 7 GPUs 
Phoenix Miner - TDP 60%, -150CC, +780 Memory with Afterburner and it's working like 2-5 days and then restart - 230.1 Mh/s for 7 GPUs
I've lost days from my life to search about this issue and how to solve the problem ...
If you look on nvidia forum it's full of people with this issue and they are not mining, no OC...

2. I have 2 RGIs, same setup and same hardware (TDP 60%, -150CC, +780 Memory, Phoenix Miner 2.9e)
1st RIG - windows 10 1709 (10.0.16299.400 and something..460/462... :?) / nvidia 391.35 - 230.1 Mh and no problem with error 999, working ok.
On the second RIG was funny, windows 1803 and couple of drivers ... no way, restart after 20 min so I've choose to install again 1709, a version with January updates...just what I've found.

I've tried to:
- increase the virtual memory
- different drivers (5 or 6 drivers.... :@)
- something with replace of nvlddmkm.sy_ and use this command "EXPAND.EXE nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys" (search on google)
- TdrDelay in registry (also search on google)
- bios update fo MB
- disable SLI
- prefer maximum power (nvidia inspector)
- DSR factor x2 in nvidia control panel ... something what I've found on google for mining... I don't know if it's important or not but trust me...you will try everything just to get rid of that error Smiley)))

At the end, after 2 days of pain...find on geforce forum something about driver 387.92 to be the solution to nvlddmkm.sys error.

2nd RIG - windows 10 1709 (10.0.16299.192) / driver 387.92 / same overclock settings (60%/-150/+780) - run for 10-11 hours (I was happy finally!!!!) and after that the error appear again, no restart after another 2-3 hours but I wanted to try another driver.

Now, I'm on the same track but with and oldest driver (384.76), the driver from the Gigabyte website and install just the driver without hd audio, gf experinece, psysX, etc...and wait to see how it's working.
With other drivers I have the error from the begging, after 5-10 min of running... I'm sure it's something with windows and nvidia drivers.

What it's very strange ... it's ok on Claymore with +800 memory and working for weeks but I have this error with Phoenix even on +750...

Another problem, on the other rig it's working very well with 391.35, I have a restart after 3-4 days but...it's ok, I can lower the OC but I don't have that error.

I'm still searching how to solve this.

Regards.

Hello,

Silly question, do you have problems with windows 10 1803 and nvidia cards?
After some research on the internet, of course ... there are different opinions :/
On one rig I still have 1709 and it's ok but with 1803 it's a big problem, at least for me. No way to use the same settings as on windows 1709 (like 60% tdp, -100 core and +780-800 memory) now I have restart after restart (15-20 min and baang...restart) even with +750 memory. I don't know what's different...I've done a fresh install but it's the same, today I will install again but definitely 1709 and trying to postpone how much I can the 1803 update.

Have a nice day and regards
