The Lbry kernel is finally working... I should be able to get dual-mining in in a day or two.

thanks zawawa,nice soft.

First off, kudos to you, Mr. Yurio for taking on a project like this on your own.
Its nice and very motivational to see a person with your mindset and programing capabilities to start a project like this ( Looking at you Mr. Wolf  Smiley).

Since this has come a long way, I decided to start testing the 1.1.1. Alpha version.
I have done a few hours of tests, nothing special, it has not been running for days, so don't take my tests for granted.
All of the test have been done on a 6x Sapphire Nitro+ RX570 4GB ( Hynix ) machine, running Windows 10 Pro x64 build 1607 ( Default Microsoft Image - no updates ).
Testing has been done on XMR mining only, I've used same setting as I use in my SGminerGM, xmr-stack-amd and Claymore miners >>> RI:896 | W:8 | T:2
The settings are with power consumption in mind, the cards are running 1200 core / 2000 memory @900 - 920mV

Lets start with the good things:

- Good, competitive speed
- Decent amount of options to setup the cards ( didn't try overclocking )
- Friendly user interface
- Easy installation and config to use for beginners

Now for the bad part:

- Random crashes ( The app has stopped working windows error )
- Sometimes when changing the pool from devfee to my pool, or the other way around, the threads become unresponsive, it tries to restart but nothing happens - sometimes the machine crashes.
- Speed is not quite there yet, getting about 10- 15 h/s more on SGMiner GM ( about 970 - 975 h/s with same settings )
- Unresponsive GUI - takes a while for the page to refresh - probably infecting stability
- A bit higher power consumption than SGMiner GM, about 15-20w for the whole rig, not much of an issue, can be overlooked if the stability would improve
- Very high startup times - takes 40 sec for the devfee mining to start and another 2 min. for my mining to start - that's 2:40 to start mining from the start of miner - sorry, this is unacceptable - other miners start way faster and change between pools faster, you need to work on this

Things I would like to see in future releases:

- Stability! No.1 Concern
- faster start and pool / devfee change
- More configuration options ( ability to restart rig, not to restart threads if unstable, command prompt interface only etc. )
- Responsive GUI

All in all I would say you are making great progress, and this is becoming a really good miner.
Once the stability issues are solved and some features are added I will be happy to use it and show my support to You.
I will keep testing this on one rig any report further findings if I find any.

Thanks a lot and keep up the good work!

Pennywis3, are you use modded bioses for your cards? I can't reach your speed on my RX 580 8Gb with hynix memory even on 2250MHz...

Yes, I'm using custom made straps.

The cards go well beyond 1k h/s, but its not very power efficient to run them at such high clocks.

Thanks a lot and keep up the good work!

Thank YOU for such a detailed report!
I will definitely address stability issues and response times with stable releases of the current 1.1 branch.
I am planning to add more testing rigs to approximate various real-world settings more closely. We will see.
Power consumption is not something I looked into very closely at this point, but I will get to it once I am satisfied with the other aspects of the miner.

Dual ETH/LBC mining is working!
Lbry is still slow and I am planning a major optimization today, though.

zawawa, while you're work on the lbry dual mode, today half of time decred gives more profit on dual mode... Maybe after lbry you make decred too? And it's need to make "Most profitable" switch working.

Nice work,  When you're done with library can you do decred, would sure like to
give hashes to someone other then claymore. Cool

Big thanks to @zawawa for making this!

I began mining with MinersGate but they are stealing work. (accumulated work that just vanished and poor hashrates)

Who tried allready ethereum mining on GGS?
I tried my RX 580 8Gb cards and on Claymore's miner 10.1 speed is higher about 1-1,5% than GGS. Even in dual mode Claymore gives more speed about 0,5%
Maybe it's need to adjust settings for GGS? I tried on defaults T-1/I-2000/LWS-192. And tried to higher Intensity but it's almost not affects on eth speed...
I'm afraid that after adding dual eth modes in GGS, eth speed will be even lower...

Yeah, Ethash needs more work on threading.
Hopefully I will be done with ETH/LBC dual-mining today.
I had to do a massive rewrite, but it is coming along...

UPDATE!

After clearing CMOS, running DDU and installing fresh drivers ( 17.11.1 ) the miner is a lot more stable.
I guess it was my dirty drivers that were causing all the crashes and so on.

Keep up the good work Smiley

zawawa, i find another small bug in log. When GSS mines ethereum during start in log writes "Building CryptoNight kernel for GPU..."
And, it's need to add possibility to tune each thread, and select it's own algo for each GPU.

And strange... But i can't to reach speed of Claymore cryptonight miner on my 270X 4Gb.... And GGS don't read hardware sensors of 270X card.

Who can say settings for 270X for GGS? Best I can find is T-2/I-464/LWS-8.

zawawa, where are you?
tnx for answers. waiting ... still 8 cards can't work normal.


and ...:
1. Does your miner work without reward to the developer?  Shocked

I am not going to answer this one.  Wink

2. How can I find out about hardware errors? (For example, as in the Gateless Gate field HW)
3. How can I find out about the complexity of the shares?

To be implemented.

4. The numbers of video cards do not correspond to AfTerBurner or GPU-Z ... etc?
5. 8 graphics cards are not recognized correctly?
5 cards - http://piccy.info/view3/11802575/ab667f9e50fd2a8a37dd41c892364ace/
8 cards - http://piccy.info/view3/11802589/ef059b5ea9c4154c9cfb0178d4927bdb/

I will look into this.

6. How to connect to European pools without using the Custom tabs

GGS automatically chooses the server with the fastest response time.
In your case, a server outside Europe responded more quickly than European servers.

1. Why? I see at the beginning of the work you are rewarded, this is not a problem! I just want an understanding of how it works.
Or is there any problem with this? I am for making your work paid for on transparent terms.
In this case, I wrote to Mr. Claymore in the forum topic ... and was not happy with his attitude and comments about the theft, etc.

2. & 3. Thank you! Waiting so much!

4&5 - i send RIGS with the same videocards. RIG bigger then 6 cards dosnt recognize correctly.

6. Thank you! I See.

7. How, in your opinion, to regulate the complexity of the pools that it is allowed to do?

8. How is it fixed to set the fan speed for video cards?

Comments: If you enter Monero's purse and click - "view balance" - the site opens without an inscribed wallet.
And // about #7: In my case it turned out like this: in the Monero string of purse, write through "." the name of the worker and through the "+" complexity.

Dude, you created this account to be a pain in the ass on every developer in this forum, if you are not happy with fee, use genoil miner its free, stop bothering everyone ffs.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Sorry, but I think I'm not talking to you?
Besides, it seems to me, I did not even ask you to write your opinion about who, where, ... and what pain in the ass?

And, by the way, the informative nature of your message is just a pain in the ass for this forum.

I am alive! I am juggling with the last problem before dual-mining is fully functioning.
Never have I hated AMD drivers so much. LOL.

Now I think about it, Lbry might not have been the best choice for the first attempt at dual-mining. There is just too much register pressure, and Sir. Claymore may be dealing with that with the GCN assembly after all. Let me see if I have better luck with Pascal first...
