I found a bug in the error handler where, if an error occurs on retry, it throws that blocking error message and stops mining Sad Gonna fix that...

Also, just wondering: is there a way to set up poclbm to spit out a verbose log, perhaps with a config file?

Well, poclbm has a -verbose switch, but when I use that it forces the stats refresh rate to 60 seconds instead of the 1 second it's set to right now, and you can't customize it at all. I'm not a huge fan of that, so I want to try to get a working python environment so I can tweak the code for my own purposes. (I also want to have a flag to dump platforms and devices and then exit, which you can't quite do right now, that's why detecting hardware takes a little while)

I've released version 0.2 of SlushMiner on my SourceForge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/slushminer) with some big backend changes and a few interface improvements:

  • The backend code has been completely restructured, making it much easier to maintain and allowing me to release the source code without making myself look bad Grin The source isn't quite ready yet, I need to clean up and comment everything but once it's uploaded I'll post here
  • Worker information can be manually overridden in case Slush's Pool website goes down (like it has been lately). He's got mining working but the site itself is down, so this will allow SlushMiner to work without the login
  • A new Charts tab with line charts for hashrate, share rates, and rejection rate
  • Automatic new version checking (disabled by default, you can turn this on in the Settings tab)
  • Custom refresh intervals for miner program, currency markets, and pool stats

There's a few other smaller improvements, you can find them on my website. Let me know what you think!

I've moved the entire SlushMiner project over to SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/slushminer. I've uploaded all of the source code to the built-in Git repository, there's a few basic wiki pages, and SF has a tickets system if anyone has any problems with the software.

Just installed and running now.  getting respectable hash rate vs Guiminer, within 5 Mhash/s.
Will let you know how it preforms over night.

Interesting, I wonder if there will be a lot more single pool miners in the future

ok, ran over night, still chuggin along like a champ.

Overall the interface is nice, the integration with Slush account statistics and balance is great.

Will continue to use over Guiminer.  Thank you for working on this.

What a good way to make my first official post on the forum.

This is a great tool. To be honest, I was quite intimidated by cgminer. I had GUIMiner running, and that's great too - but I really like the integration with the account stats.

ok, noticed a small issue.

on the Mining stats tab, the Total line is only summing the rejected shares, resulting in 100% rejection rate being displayed.
and on the line above, the rate reflects a static 15%.

<added> and as you can see in the screen shot, the titlebar reflects the wrong info as well.

Yeah, I saw that problem too, it's because I started making the counts "pretty" (adding thousands separators) but when I total everything up it's not handling those numbers properly. It's on my fix list for the next version Smiley

I've released version 0.2.1 of SlushMiner on my SourceForge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/slushminer), this is mostly a bug fix and performance improvement release:

  • Fixed problems with chart zooming and increased range
  • New version checking will now actually respect user setting (was previously always on)
  • Maximum limit removed from miner refresh rate
  • Chart data is removed after a specified number of hours (keeps memory usage from getting too high)
  • Website pulls and chart updates are paused while the main form is minimized, everything gets updated when the form is restored

    Minor bug fixes:
  • JSON parsing when the user's current culture uses commas as decimal separators
  • Total stats calculations when accepted or rejected share counts go over 1,000 (thousands separator causing problems)
  • Currency exchange information is now displayed and updated all the time

Hi,

your program is only for GPU's? How about FPGA and ASIC's (virtual com port)?

Thanks

hey joshua! also a member of slush, i'll download this and give it a whirl later tonight. is this just a front-end for another client or a stand-alone program? i ask because i'd like to be able to use BMIT (bitcoin miners in tray) eventually for it's auto-restart features.

Currently SlushMiner only works with POCLBM, which as far as I know only works with OpenCL (usually GPU's). I plan on building some kind of addon system to work with other programs in the near future, so other people could write addons to work with other mining software.

Hi,

I'm new to Bitcoin Mining but does this work with CUDA mining?

Thanks
