DiabloD3, what are those settings -w 64 -v 36 compared to cgminer options? I tried -v 4 -w 64.. much slower.

What hardware, driver, and SDK? I tested this on 11.12 and SDK 2.6, normal options apply to everyone else.

windows x64, 3 x raden hd 6990, drivers 11.12 with I think SDK 2.6

Much slower than -v 2 -w 256 on that same combination?

-v 4 -w 64 is about 50mh slower each GPU, the same with -v 2 -w 256. I just wanted to know the settings with cgminer compared to your miner using -v 36. What is -v 36 anyway?

P.S. the best result is with -v 2 -w 128 so far

-v 4 on cgminer seems to be the same thing as -v 36 on mine.

Update: Added two often requested features: return to primary pool every 100 minutes when using multipool, and added a feature to automatically donate, use -b.

Windows Defender FAIL, it is telling me diablominer may be a virus and ask me to delete it. Danger level: average

Of course it's a false positive, diablominer is safe, but for MICROSOFT, it isn't.

Program:Win32/BitCoinMiner
Program:MacOS/BitCoinMiner
Program:Linux/BitCoinMiner
Program:Solaris/BitCoinMiner

So much fail.

Also it shows that microsoft consider miners as dangerous software

There has been an actual virus that distributes miners as their payloads, and the authors of the anti-viruses are too stupid to tag the right binaries (ie, the virus instead of the otherwise legitimate payload). The same has happened to cgminer, btw.

Update: Improved error handling for argument parsing, will now quit if you do not supply enough connection parameters, or try to use 0 with -D

BTW, anyone using the donate function, update to newest. That multipool bug apparently screws up donating too, it hops to the wrong pool to donate on.

Is there anyway to reduce the amount of graphics lag this causes in OS X? The latest version works perfectly on my iMac w/ a Radeon 4850 (getting 50mhash), but it makes everything so laggy i can only run it when afk.

Currently the only flag I'm using is -w 64 as that's recommended in the OP.

Try adding -f 120

Tweak the number up/down...higher you go = smoother desktop experience, but slower mining

If that's anywhere close to -f settings in GUIminer, -f 60 lets me watch GPU-accelerated HD videos without a problem. Even -f 55 is ok.

Add -f 60 or a higher number (-f should always be a divisor or multiple of 60)

Same goes for you, 55 isn't a divisor or multiple of 60. -f 60, 120, etc are nicer.

Yeah. There are some things hardwired in the driver to work around 60hz (the refresh rate of virtually every LCD monitor on DVI/HDMI/Displayport), instead of just being triggered either after the last iteration is done, or on the actual refresh rate. So, multiples and divisors of 60 seem to give higher hash rates and/or give better desktop latency.

-f 120 seems to have done the trick. hashrate drops by about 5-10mhash when I'm using the computer, but average goes back up to where it was before when I'm afk

thanks for the help  Grin

Update: I have changed how the vector argument works to better serve new and upcoming GPUs. It now uses comma separated values, and vectors up to 16 in length. It also now supports 3 length vectors as well.

If you used this -> switch to this...

-v 1 -> -v 1
-v 2 -> -v 2
-v 3 -> -v 2,1
-v 4 - > -v 2,2
-v 18 -> -v 1,1
-v 19 -> -v 1,1,1
-v 36 -> -v 4
-v 40 -> -v 4,4

What's the recommended -v argument for GCN?

No one knows yet. 1onevvolf has a thread going that is exploring this until I get mine.

Just got my Sapphire 7970 installed.  Been doing some testing.  Confirming what others have been seeing.  Stock clocks ~550mh/s.  1125/1375 OC is giving me ~671mh/s peak with ~655mh/s average.  Default miner settings.  11.12 drivers from the below address.  2.6 SDK of course.

What's the recommended -v argument for GCN?

I found that -v 1 works best, with the rest of the settings at default.

@DiabloD3: I like the vector changes! Much cleaner than what I cooked up. By the way, I found that -v 16 isn't working with the new changes. The nonce.sN components aren't correctly declared in hex when N > 9. Here's a fix:

Code:
              if(vectors[y] > 1) {
                for(int i = 0; i < vectors[y]; i++)
-                  end += replace.replace(lastVar, lastVar + ".s" + i).replaceAll("nonce", "nonce.s" + i) + "\n";
+                  end += replace.replace(lastVar, lastVar + ".s" + Integer.toHexString(i)).replaceAll("nonce", "nonce.s" + Integer.toHexString(i)) + "\n";
              } else {
                end += replace;
              }
