Hey,

so I've recently added a second GPU but my hash rate has remained the same, using ewbf and ccminer my hashrate has doubled as expected

anything I need to change in the config?

config:

[
   {"time":0,"commands":[
      {"id":1,"method":"algorithm.add","params":["lbry","lbry.suprnova.cc:6256","xxxx"]}
   ]},
   {"time":3,"commands":[
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["0","0"]},
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["0","0"]}
   ]},
   {"time":10,"loop":10,"commands":[
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.print.speed","params":["0"]},
      {"id":1,"method":"worker.print.speed","params":["1"]},
      {"id":1,"method":"algorithm.print.speeds","params":["0"]}
   ]}
]


I'm using v1.2.10a


You need to create a worker for the second gpu and not 2 workers for the same gpu

Code:
[
{"time":0,"commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"algorithm.add","params":["lbry","lbry.suprnova.cc:6256","xxxx"]}
]},
{"time":3,"commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["0","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["1","0"]}
]},
{"time":10,"loop":10,"commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"worker.print.speed","params":["0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"worker.print.speed","params":["1"]},
{"id":1,"method":"algorithm.print.speeds","params":["0"]}
]}
]

That's wrong, worker.add is [algorithm.id, device.id].

Correct approach:
Code:
[
{"time":0,"commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"algorithm.add","params":["lbry","lbry.suprnova.cc:6256","xxxx"]}
]},
{"time":3,"commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["0","0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"worker.add","params":["0","1"]}
]},
{"time":10,"loop":10,"commands":[
{"id":1,"method":"worker.print.speed","params":["0"]},
{"id":1,"method":"worker.print.speed","params":["1"]},
{"id":1,"method":"algorithm.print.speeds","params":["0"]}
]}

Here comes a new version! Sorry for the delay...

https://github.com/nicehash/excavator/releases/tag/v1.2.11a

- added support for TITAN Xp
- added algorithm CUDA lyra2rev2
- added API method message
- bug fixes & improvements

Personally, I worked really hard to make AMD support as reliable as possible.
It took me forever to fix all these bugs, but I think it's worth it. Enjoy!

@zawawa are you guys planning to expose some parameters for equihash for fine tuning?
I am aware that excavator is a few % slower than EWBF but the slowdown seems to be exponential.
On the hardware i tested.
gigabyte 1060 3GB: 84% TDP, ~10sol/s slower (3-4%)
asus 1070 8GB: 79% TDP, ~20sol/s slower (5-6%)
msi 1080 8GB: 90% TDP, ~60sol/s slower (10-12%)

I have one machine that uses 1x 1080 and 3x 1060 3GB with equihash, on excavator (2 workers per card), i get around ~1330 sol/s, while on EWBF its around ~1420 sol/s with the same TDP/OC settings.

Is there anything i can do on the excavator side to improve this?

Nice Software, thank you.

Looking foward for full AMD support. 

Will this miner also get auto switch algo support  on nicehash at some point?

If your Linux version is ready ... what about a nicehash distro similar to simplemining.net, so i can flash just a USB Drive, power up my rig/rigs, login to my nicehash account and config my rig/rigs and here we go.....
   


Any recommendation for AMD RX570?(driver/bios mod etc.) Currently Running with 17.7.1 and https://anorak.tech/ powersave biosmod for my Sapphire RX570 4GB Nitro+ and using Trixx to adjust memclock/Fan Speed.

ETH only 23,8-24,8 MH/s  for each GPU with  1100/1900MHz(25,8 MH/s with Claymore)  but with eth+dcr mode im getting only  15-18 MH/s for ETH and 350 MH/s for DCR on each gpu(Claymore 25,8MH/s / 750MH/s).

Thanks a lot, I'll try this on my Titan Xp rig, I was waiting for this one for a long time.

I'll use it with the latest Nicehash Legacy miner.

Shouldn't take that long, but you never know.
We will see...

NHML does not use Excavator.

Hello,

maybe a stupid question, but I am quite new to this. I was trying to mine ZCash with excavator with my GTX 660 Ti (in Windows 7). I was not able so I want to ask if it is possible to mine with that? And if yes, where and how? Thanks.

Yep, just find that out.

I think NHM Alpha 2.0.0.8 use it, I'll try later, after Bitcoin fork kicks on.

Excavator is already running on Linux. I will polish the Linux port this week and see how that goes.

You might want to ask djeZo as I really haven't touched the CUDA side of excavator.
He and I did exchange ideas about hardware acceleration for NVIDIA cards, and that is definitely something I could work on after I am done with the Linux port.

Why were the command line parameters cut? It is common practice, and much easier to utilise miners via comand line params.
