newbie here... Smiley


does anyone have a quick intro on how to get excavator working with ethermine.org pool? I have a win10 and a gtx 1070.

figure it needs a batch file just like genoil's miner?


thanks

@djeZo/@zawawa , is there any recommended settings for nvidia/dagger additional params: Number of blocks/Number of threads per block/Number of parallel hashes per warp/Number of streams ? I tried to play with them but no noticeable difference and my speeds are far slower than the stated. Also it takes some time(few minutes) for the miner to get to the highest speed, is that normal?

I'm running at 51 Mh/s

One EVGA 1070 SC +/- 29 Mh/s
One EVGA 1060 SC 6 Gb +/- 22 Mh/s

Both running on Micron memory.

If I go +600 Mhz I get artifacts.

So I have set mine at +400.

Readjust worker.reset timed command to happen later so that DAG generation time has no effect on end speed - then real speed is shown almost instantly.

Hello guys Smiley
I'm new in mining thing and i'm little lost here.
After the last update I get this error even after disabling drivers signature and running the miner in admin mode.
There are something that I have to do to fix this issue?
The hashrate was ~27Mh/s before
Sorry for my grammar, I'm not native.
Thank you.

Hi everyone, i am very happy to announce that my GUI for Excavator is finally ready!   Roll Eyes

Few screenshots so you would have an idea how it looks



To anyone that would be willing to try it, you can find the GUI with instructions on how to use it over here: https://github.com/cTn-dev/Excavator-GUI

Currently it has only been tested on Nvidia cards (sadly i don't own an AMD gpu).
If people will like the GUI, ill try to save up some funds to buy one AMD card to properly implement and test everything on AMD side aswell.

If you have any questions, please let me know, happy mining! :-)

Many people like me couldn't configure the miner properly. There is no proper explanation and limited stratum support. I think much better way  using claymore and ewbf.

To everyone asking when some new protocol will be added to Excavator. The answer is NEVER.

But pools are welcome to update their protocols. Here are documentations.

For SIA: https://siamining.com/stratum

For EthereumStratum: https://github.com/nicehash/Specifications/blob/master/EthereumStratum_NiceHash_v1.0.0.txt

Contrary to their implementations, we actually make documentation, everything is well explained and there are examples.

surely I'm misunderstanding, but are you saying you don't want to interface with existing pool/stratum protocols and instead made your own , and expect everyone else to adapt to you?

Legacy signature from 2011: 
All rates with Phoenix 1.50 / PhatK
5850 - 400 MH/s  |  5850 - 355 MH/s | 5830 - 310 MH/s  |  GTX570 - 115 MH/s | 5770 - 210 MH/s | 5770 - 200 MH/s

The main purpose is directing people to specific pools like suprnova and nicehash.

What kind of configuration issues are you running into?
I personally find the provided documentation on github more than sufficient, granted its little bit more complex but its definitely more robust when it comes to features.
You can also use the GUI utilities provided by Nicehash or me to do the configuration (if you don't want to fiddle with the command/config files).

If I want to give fee for some extra features, there are some miners that have been already made.  If there is a point that makes you to create something for this miner, it isn't good enough like others.

Nope. The main purpose is security. Most pools have a bad implementation of the stratum protocol.

Hi, i also made a video showing how to mine zcash and ethereum with excavator and the new gui, hopefully it can help some new miners get started.

It is a pity that this is just a "local executor". I expected that you would create a full-fledged tool for remote control of the excavator. It could not be started because it requires the executable excavator file in the application folder.

I was waiting for your application, but my hopes did not justify :-(

Point me a link to your gui? The one with remote monitoring and remote control? I want to test it! Its first release for god sake.

Come oon:) suprnova got less than 0.09% of the hash and nicehash got less then 0.005%, so either no one cares for security or either 99.9% are stupid. Either way whats the point of having 0.01% secured? Honestly I really like the flexibility of excavator I would use if i had an option to choose where to mine even if there is a dev fee. I'm sure i'm not alone.

You're not alone but I don't think any number of us are going to change the developer's mind unfortunately.

djeZo actually has a pretty good reason to promote his own protocol: It is simply more efficient with a reduced number of duplicates. I would love to support other protocols, but I don't think I would be able to convince him to adopt what he perceives to be technically inferior solutions...
