I suppose I wasn't clear enough. Modded BIOS'es for Claymore's may not work well with excavator, and you need to flash back the BIOS to the stock one first. You can mod the BIOS for excavator, but please keep in mind that excavator may require different settings.

Ok, but whats the point of stock if i still dont have hardware acceleration?

With in 10 mins my speed slowly increased and settled on 27.3mh/s on RX 480 8gb with modded timigns. With claymor i got 29.2-29.4 with same clocks.

You should be able to get 29Mh/s quite easily with excavator. I will share my settings soon.



Anucian before the month of July better for Nvidia?

about linux version will be compatible with stratum eth-proxy pool like ethermine.org?
cause atm example your sgminer not working with it, i'm try to fix it but i'm stuck after authentication.

I meant this!

excavator Release v1.2.5 alpha
https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/releases/tag/v1.2.5a

  • added hardware acceleration for Radeon RX 460/470/480/560/570/580
  • added daggerhashimoto (a.k.a. Ethash) OpenCL kernel for NiceHash
  • added algorithm details (pool stats)
  • added system details to info API
  • added optional HTTP API auth token
  • wrong OpenCL.dll fix attempt
  • improved OpenCL hardware management
  • added algorithm CUDA lbry

This is a big release with Ethash/daggerhashimoto, lbry, and hardware acceleration.
I will stay around for a while to answer questions and to post some tips and benchmarks.
Enjoy!

Great work!
Do you have an ETA for the Linux version?
+1 I am still waiting and I will be able to provide competitive claymore benchmark.

Nice, why ethash only on nicehash?

It works on all pools that have implemented EthereumStratum protocol. Which is basically a proper stratum protocol not some jaba-daba-shit created before where you could submit duplicates, because all miners were assigned same work to work on.

You can read RFC here: https://github.com/nicehash/Specifications/blob/master/EthereumStratum_NiceHash_v1.0.0.txt

To my knowledge, suprnova also implemented this and got much better results, because miners cannot cheat anymore.

Thanks for clarification, i though that it is only working on nicehash pool.

But would be nice others protocol support, Some of the great pools (and other coins like Musicoin) did not use nicehash stratum protocol

the results of the new version are pretty good, keep good work zawawa

The commandline switch /? or /nvidia doesn't work.
It just starts the miner always. So what and which are the proper commandline switches.

Obviously the old ones from 1.1.3a not working anymore
Also how to set username and password for other pool?

As I said the parameter doesn't work. and there is no hint in any of your documentation about username or password.
Maybe you can enlighten the blind then where to find this specific info in your docs if it exists..if ...

So how should the command file should look like for other pools using login and password?
Even commandlineswitch /nvidia which is mentioned on the help doesn't work. So you documentation is either crap or not well done.

@ionlng
For me it works with json file and I use their restart scrypt just edit the json to mine what you like
excavator.exe -c %COMMAND_FILE%

zcash.json
[
   {"time":0,"commands":[
      {"id":1,"method":"algorithm.add","params":["equihash","eu1-zcash.flypool.org:3333","t1aayCdxghMsbHTMYZqLrR8jWgFhdiCnDbY.rig6"]}
   ]},
   {"time":3,"commands":[
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["0","0"]},

NVIDIA information: https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/tree/master/nvidia

API information: https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/tree/master/api

And of course, to make sense of all, carefully read first README on excavator's github page.

Again there is no hint or information on how to set username and password if you want to mine on other pool.

In old excavator it was -s server -u username -p password

What is it now..that is my question..i asked 3 times by now^^ lol is that so hard to get the point?

It is, here: https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/tree/master/api#algorithm-add

And there is also example json file in root folder where you only need to modify data with your own.

How do I select which cards are used for mining? By default only the 1st card in the rig is used and the others are idling. Is it the "-cd" parameter in the main .bat file? I can't find anything about this in the documentation.
And I'm also getting lots of rejected shares when mining lbry on suprnova. The reason is always "low difficulty share". I don't have nearly as many (pretty much none at all) on the same rig with the same pool when I'm using alexis ccminer.

Using start-up commanding file. See example default_command_file.json.

File contains a JSON array of all actions that would happen during runtime of Excavator. Each array item has two mandatory fields and one optional. Mandatory is 'time' which tells you after how many seconds since start of Excavator commands should execute and 'commands' which is a JSON array of commands you can find in API section.

Optionally you can specify 'loop' which repeat commands every 'loop' seconds. When creating algorithms and workers, note that IDs of returned objects always run from 0 and on, so first algorithm always has ID 0, second 1 etc.

You will want to figure out ID of each card; use telnet to connect to Excavator then send command

{"id":1,"method":"device.list","params":[]}
to retreive all available devices and their IDs.


After you have your commanding file ready, use '-c' command line switch to provide file name when starting Excavator.

As for rejects; we tested on NiceHash only and it worked fine.

No wonder I couldn't find it..different place it was ..yeah yeah the little nuts and bolts.
Thanks anyway.

Do you have an ETA for the Linux version?

My admittedly optimistic estimate is one week from now. We will see...
