Okay guys I looked in the spreadsheet for GTS 450 code, still cannot run the miner (it runs for a microsecond and then closes)

Code:
cudaminer.exe -i 0 -D -H 1 -C 2 -l F24x8 -o stratum+tcp://xxx.xxx.com:3333 -O id.worker:worker pass


I can easily run the 7 Dec release on this code:

Code:
cudaminer.exe -i 0 -l auto -m 1 -o stratum+tcp://xxx.xxx.com:3333 -O id.worker:worker pass

cudaminer.exe -i 0 -l auto -m 1 -o stratum+tcp://xxx.xxx.com:3333 -O id.worker:worker pass

in bold is intensity, you have set this at zero, set it to 13 and see what happens, also id drop the flag -l auto, just let it figure it out itself then set it to what it targeted at.

Changed -i and -l auto codes as you said, doesn't start up (same microsecond startup)
Code:
cudaminer.exe -i 13 -D -H 1 -C 2 -o stratum+tcp://xxx.xxx.com:3333 -O id.worker:worker pass



One thing a lot of people get wrong is targeting

is your cudaminer file in C:/ root? if it was your bat would look something like this

START C:/cudaminer/cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://xxx.xxx.com:3333 -O id.worker:worker pass

if your file is in C you could run that right now for autotuning

I just created the bat file in the folder like I did in previous release (and still mining with it), never needed to specify path.

Although I did try with path too, still doesn't start. I think it's error in the code, since miner does fire up for a millisecond when I hit the bat file.

Hi,


I've 4x nVidia Quadro K6000 cards and I am running the cudaMiner in autotune mode(if that's the mode in which it runs if no extra flags are specified).

One thing which I've noticed is that, one of the GPU out of 4 gives hash rate of 485kh/s while other 3 ranges from 280-370kh/s. I am getting a total avg of 1450 kh/s. Is this hash rate good at all? How to make the other 3 work on 485 kh/s as well?

Do anyone have any suggestion with manual config to get better result? UI response is of no use to me. Just suggest me the settings that would give maximum performance.

At last, I would like to thank OP for the cudaMiner. As far as I've read, it seems to be only one which makes nVidia cards any useful.

Regards.

Try adding -D to see which config it picks for the cards, and then applying the one that gives the highest hashrate to all of them. After that you can play around with -H 0/1/2. Otherwise from previous posts, you should try the -l config of (amount of smx units enabled on card)x32, which for k6000 should be -l T15x32, or maybe the kepler kernel with K15x32
Thanks bro. The -l with T15x32 boosted the performance. Now getting about 1600 kh/s and all the GPUs are hashing in near about same rate. nVidia GPU's surely suck for mining. This one is such a high-end GPU and such poor performance. Not sure I'll continue this. The trial run's result will decide if its going any further. Thanks again for your help though.

-l T15x32 is the right start.  Try T15x64 and see if it runs, but it will probably either crash or give you completely outlandish results.  I've been unable to get that config running on a Tesla, though I may still poke at it a little more.

What you'll find, though, is that the Quadro is a terrible ROI for mining:  -T15x32 will only use about 2GB of the DRAM on your card (and using more provides no additional benefits).  The ratio of registers and FLOPS to DRAM on the Quadro isn't optimal for mining.  Lower-end cards with less memory perform similarly (or better because they often run at a slightly higher clock rate).  The 780 Ti, for example, has roughly the same compute horsepower but with only 3GB of DRAM, and it's a pretty speedy beast.  Well, at least, in the range of nvidia cards. Smiley

I'm a little surprised you're not seeing about 40-50kh/s more on each of your cards, but that may be in the noise.  Are you running one instance of CudaMiner across all four?  You might try running four independent instances if your drivers handle it.

Indeed, I was looking at resources and the RAM is so underutilized. Currently, fans are running at 40% speed. Occasionally rises up but pretty much stable near there. Yeah I am running just a single instance for all four.

So as per your suggestion, I should run 4 instance for one card each or 4 instance running on 4 cards each? I believe the later will fry the GPU...lol

I actually did get near about same boost. Previously was getting 1400'ish, now getting 1600'ish hashing rates. So ~200 kh/s increased breaking down to 50 kh/s per card. Before running with manual config, one card would do at much faster and others were doing pretty slow. Now, all are working at pretty much same pace.

One instance per card, specify which one it should run on with the -d operator, -d 0, -d 1 for the next cudaminer etc, I guess you'd have to make 4 folders for that too.
Also, do you have double precision disabled? Supposedly that gives a small boost

sort of new to this.. below is my low gpu usuage bat file. I want my gpu to not run so hot and high any thing else i need to add?
it still gives me about 246 kh/s on a gtx 670 with 67c. anyway to make the miner use less gpu when im home so i can play some LoL =]

So after running my GTX 560 Ti for 2days staight at a solid 280khash on the new 12/18 software, cudaminer out of nowhere spiked the hashrate up to about 450 and the card started giving hardware errors as it can't run that high.

I got the notification from my.mining pool that a worker was down, so I RDP to the machine close out cudaminer and restart my script, no changes made at all.

Now all of a sudden cudaminer is saying, "unable to query CUDA driver version.  Is an nVidia driver installed."
This of course isn't true.

Seeing as how this happened the very first time I ran cudaminer I simply tried to reinstall the driver.  When that didn't work I tried downgrading the driver and still no luck.  I even installed the CUDA development kit and that didn't work either.  I can no longer get cudaminer to launch any of the 3 versions that I have previously used.

I'm very confused at the moment.  The only thing crossing my mind is that maybe when I RDP to the machine the graphic settings are changing for remote desktop and the CUDA driver is being disabled and therefore cannot relaunch.

Anyone ever tried to restart cudaminer via RDP before?
Bigger question is why did cudaminer decide to randomly jump to 450khash after 2 straight days mining at 280?

Thoughts, comments, help, all appreciated.  5k doge to anyone that can help me find a solution.

Lots doge you rich coins wow cudaminer wow doge happy coin.

what does the -H1 parallelizatoin do?

and why do you have -i 0  , what does that do? vs. -i 1

With the -H flag at 1, the SHAish parts of the app are done multi-threaded on the CPU.

The -i flag says whether the app may load the GPU as much as possible (0) or keep some headroom for the user interface (1).

Thanks! Yea, running at -i 0 makes my comp a little slow but its ok

I'm on GTX 660Ti with settings:
-H 1 -i 0 -C 1 -D -l K7x32

With K14x16 I get ~265 khash/sec
With K7x32 I get ~269 khash/sec

Awesome update! Now my 660ti have 295khash/sec.

Might I ask your settings?

what are your other settings? did you overclock? I'm on stock and can't pass 270 khash/s

Driver crashed? happens to me if I try to push my oc to high, does it still happen after reboot?

Haven't used RDP but I am using chrome remote desktop and haven't had issues.


I am able to get up to about 322kH/s (jumps around 315-326 I'm logged in via chromeRD) under win8 pro using  -H 1 -i 0 -C 2 -D -l K31x6 if you (or anyone else with a 660Ti) wanna try that.

I don't think the -C option does anything for kepler right now though.

Edit: I'm slow

That's weird, I get 255 khash/s with those settings.
How or why did you choose K31x6? I'm not sure what the numbers mean beyond K = Kepler

Is there some command to find optimal settings for my comp?

Ok, tried overclocking for the first time in my life. GTX 660 Ti

I've cracked the 300 khash/s barrier! with

-H 1 -i 0 -C 1 -D -l K7x32


Thanks everyone for the help.

I completely agree that it was indeed a driver crash that caused the initial hardware errors.  I had them happen several times during testing to get the perfect khash on this card.

However the "unable to query CUDA driver" still happens after reboot.

Semi-idle question:  Is there community interest in sponsoring some more optimization of the cudaminer code for Kepler GK104 and GK110-based cards?

(I ask about sponsoring, because part of what I have in mind is picking up a new card or two to use for benchmarking.  I'm thinking in particular of trying to optimize for the GK110-based 780 and 780Ti, but I'd also like to make sure my results generalize.  Unfortunately, I'm not a gamer, so outside of using them for research in my day job - where I already have some - I don't have any real use for shiny video cards. :-)

In honesty, I think I threw my best optimization ideas at the version most of you are already running.  *grins*  But there's probably another 5% here and there, which could translate into, say, at least a 10-20kh/sec boost on faster cards.

I got the notification from my.mining pool that a worker was down, so I RDP to the machine close out cudaminer and restart my script, no changes made at all.

Now all of a sudden cudaminer is saying, "unable to query CUDA driver version.  Is an nVidia driver installed."
This of course isn't true.

Seeing as how this happened the very first time I ran cudaminer I simply tried to reinstall the driver.  When that didn't work I tried downgrading the driver and still no luck.  I even installed the CUDA development kit and that didn't work either.  I can no longer get cudaminer to launch any of the 3 versions that I have previously used.

I'm very confused at the moment.  The only thing crossing my mind is that maybe when I RDP to the machine the graphic settings are changing for remote desktop and the CUDA driver is being disabled and therefore cannot relaunch.

Anyone ever tried to restart cudaminer via RDP before?
Bigger question is why did cudaminer decide to randomly jump to 450khash after 2 straight days mining at 280?

Thoughts, comments, help, all appreciated.  5k doge to anyone that can help me find a solution.

Lots doge you rich coins wow cudaminer wow doge happy coin.


Driver crashed? happens to me if I try to push my oc to high, does it still happen after reboot?

Haven't used RDP but I am using chrome remote desktop and haven't had issues.

WOOOT!!!!!  kernels10 you have been awarded 5k doge.  My conclusion about RDP was 100% accurate and I was able to verify that via chrome remote desktop.

I used RDP to install chrome remote desktop, exited RDP, entered through chrome remote desktop and the scripts started up perfectly.  What this verified is that at least on the GTX 560 Ti RDP does indeed kill the CUDA nVidia drivers upon connection; therefore making it impossible to restart cudaminer.

I'm curious if this is the case with all Microsoft RDP sessions.

A Treatise on CUDAMiner
Thanks CBuchner for creating Cudaminer!
If this helped please upvote for other puppy miners!
I've added popular cards and configs to the bottom.
Disclaimer: I'm like every other shibe.. I can make mistakes, if something doesn't look right, please, please correct me! Thanks!
Some edits: A Minor Observation. -c 1 performs better than -c 2 generally.
Hi! So you're looking to Mine using your Nvidia Card, don't know how to setup CUDA Miner?
The basic format for CUDA Miner's .bat file will be.
Stratum (For HTTP: Replace stratum+tcp with http):
Ex: cudaminer -H 0 -i 1 -l auto -C 2 -o stratum+tcp://xyz.yourpool.com:porthere -u username.worker -p password
What each flag does:
[-H] scrypt also has a small SHA256 component to it: 0 hashes this single threaded on the CPU. 1 to enable multithreaded hashing on the CPU. 2 offloads everything to the GPU (default)
[-i] list of flags (0 or 1) to enable interactive desktop performance on individual cards. Use this to remove lag at the cost of some hashing performance. Do not use large launch configs for devices that shall run in interactive mode - it's best to use autotune!
This setting set at 0 will cause your GPU to run at 100% and most likely will cause lag while even tabbing through your browser! Set at 1 if you're trying to use your PC while mining.
[-l] specify the kernel launch configuration per device. This replaces autotune or heuristic selection. You can pass the strings "auto" or just a kernel prefix like L or F or K or T to autotune for a specific card generation or a kernel prefix plus a lauch configuration like F28x8 if you know what kernel runs best (from a previous autotune).
[-C] list of flags (0 or 1 or 2) to enable use of the texture cache for reading from the scrypt scratchpad. 1 uses a 1D cache, whereas 2 uses a 2D texture layout. Cached operation has proven to be slightly faster than noncached operation on most GPUs.
In Depth & Getting the most out of your card:
Well, let me start off with a checklist.
Do you have the latest version of CUDA Miner?
If Yes then Move on.. If no (Or you're not sure), then go here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=167229.0
Do you have the latest drivers installed for your video card?
If yes.. carry on! If not.. http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx
Well then, now that that's done...
A few things you'll need to know before going on..
What video card do you have?
If you know.. Carry on. If you're not sure.. Then Install GPU-Z to find out!
http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/SysInfo/GPU-Z/
Now that you know what video card you have, you'll have to find out what compute version it is using. Find your video card on this chart. (For ease, use ctrl + F on windows and then type in the # of your card)

Now.. Moving on and now that you know what version you have..
We now can find out what Kernel CUDA Miner is best suited to using! Available kernel prefixes are: L - Legacy cards (compute 1.x) F - Fermi cards (Compute 2.x) S - Kepler cards (currently compiled for Compute 1.2) - formerly best for Kepler K - Kepler cards (Compute 3.0) - based on Dave Andersen's work. Now best for Kepler. T - Titan, GTX 780 and GK208 based cards (Compute 3.5) X - Experimental kernel. Currently requires Compute 3.5 (Copied from the CUDAMiner Readme) For Legacy Cards you're best off using auto.
Now find the # of SM(X) units for your card here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units
Fermi is limited to 16 Warps per SM Unit Kepler is limited to 32 Warps per SMX Unit.
If you're on Fermi, with The 560 Ti which has 8 SM units your .bat file will look something like: cudaminer -H 0 -i 1 -l F8x16 -C 2 -o stratum+tcp://xyz.yourpool.com:porthere -u username.worker -p password
If you're using Kepler, with the 660 (Seems to be a popular card), which has 5 SMX Units your .bat will look like: cudaminer -H 0 -i 1 -l K5x32 -C 2 -o stratum+tcp://xyz.yourpool.com:porthere -u username.worker -p password
Titan should be the same as Kepler. (Although someone else may know more on this topic..)
Ta-Da!
To get the most out of your card, you can tweak the -H and -C with 0 1 or 2. I would not recommend using -i 0 if you are trying to browse the web while using your computer, things can stutter, a lot, and annoy you.
WOW! Much hash. http://s15.postimg.org/onsy6sdjf/doge2.jpg
General Mining Tips:
Be sure to find a good pool of course! Try to find a PPLNS Pool with 0-1% fee. I'm not going to suggest any, I don't want to seem biased. There are many good pools! (Thanks Crazypotatoes on doges.org for suggesting this)
Use GPU-Z to monitor temperatures on your card. If it gets too hot you may want to shut it down. Mining doges isn't worth it at the expense of your computer and or video card. (Crazypotatoes again)
Use MSI Afterburner to increase your fan speeds. (Don't Overclock if you're not sure about what you're doing. There are many guides on this but I don't think its worth it if you're not sure what you're touching.) (Yep Crazypotatoes)
Some cards and configs:
560 Ti: -H 0 -i 1 -l F8x16 -C 1 -m 1
660: -H 0 -i 1 -l K5x32 -C 1 -m 1
670:-H 0 -i 1 -l K7x32 -C 1 -m 1
780: -H 1 -i 1 -l T9x20 -C 2 or -H 1 -i 1 -l T12x32 -c 1
Thanks!
