First off thanks for all the work Fullzero!  

I've been fighting with Win10 on my rig for a month.  Can't get it to recognize any more than 3 of my 1070 cards, and one always is disabled with an error.  So I've decided to dump Win10.

I've just got nvoc 0017 running with my old USB 2.0 stick on my ASUS Prime Z270-A with 6 Geforce GTX 1070s rig and I am not sure now how to get the mining started.  

I guess I was under the impression that it would start automatically on boot but I must have missed something in the setup.  It's just sitting there with the terminal screen open.  

Also in the Nvidia X server settings it's also only recognizing 3 of the 1070 gpus.  I'm hoping this is something that can be easily worked out as I'd hate to think that 3 of the 6 1070's I have only had for a month are bad.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If you had the same problem with windows only recognizing 3 out of 6 GPUs; this indicates there is most likely a hardware problem.

Have you tried swapping your risers?

How are you powering your risers?

What kind of risers are you using?

If you run with only 3x GPUs and it works:

swap out the 3 working GPUs with the 3 that aren't being recognized and see if they work.


Actually hardware wise I've already change motherboards thinking it was the MSI Z170A SLI Plus that I started out with.  I sent it back to Amazon earlier this week and ordered the Asus.

The risers are directly powered by the SATA cable from the PSU.  These are the risers... https://www.amazon.com/Extender-Powered-Extension-Adapter-Card-Currency/dp/B072MFBYCM/ref=sr_1_10?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1499386958&sr=1-10&keywords=PCIe%2BPowered%2BRiser%2BAdapter%2BCard%2B-%2BUSB%2B3.0%2BPCIe%2B1x%2Bto%2B16x%2BExtender%2BCard%2B-%2B6-Pin%2BPCI-E%2Bto%2BSATA%2BPower%2BCable&th=1

Yes I have swapped them around many time, but when I was on win10, haven't yet with nvoc as I just got it going tonight.  All of them worked in that testing.

Just a side note here....  I shut down the rig after I posted the first post and just powered it back a few mins ago.  Getting this scrolling on the terminal now...

bash: /media/m1/1263-A96E/oneBash: Permission denied
dos2unix: /media/m1/1263-A96E/oneBash: No such file or directory
dos2unix: Skipping /media/m1/1263-A96E/oneBash, not a regular file.

I have to laugh at myself cause I've obviously dorked something up I guess.

This usually means there is a problem with the image.

I would re image the USB key.

Let me know if that works.

hi, it is not problems of image.
these are problems of the FAT32 file system which falls after each incorrect reset. You can find such line in dmesg:

120.350515] FAT-fs (sda1): Volume was not properly unmounted. Some data may be corrupt. Please run fsck.
I don't trust FAT32 and have transferred oneBash to other place.
At me it is impossible to stabilize my system in any way. I observe a large number of restarts which I can't analyse.
Syslog doesn't contain anything useful.

I need methodology of a solution. How to find the reason of a collapse of an operating system and restart. What video card exceeds admissible values and is unstable? I think it it will be interesting to many. Thank you very much!


I had a problem with the fat32 partition on my images.  I just had to reimage it... use HDD Raw Copy.  It doesn't ALWAYS work, but it does most of the time.  Also, make sure your flash drive or hard drive is bigger than 16gb.  I ran into a problem with mine where the drive was just a hair shy of the required size for the image and that caused partition file table problems that made the first part unreadable.

You could also use gparted to try to repair the partition which works sometimes.  Or use TestDisk if you're savvy with partition file table manipulation at all.

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Download





It isn't important at all as you do image what software and in what operating system. At the first loading everything is read perfectly!
Important the fact that after incorrect completion of nvOC (for example the system is too overclocked) data on FAT32 /dev/sda1 are damaged and you are stimulated every time to repair this partition and to do mount, remount. look above how many restarts of nvOC at me happen in days. Every time is a potential problem of damage of FAT32. IMHO needs to refuse this partition, to transfer oneBash to other directory and to modify it, using gnome (local) or ssh, sftp (remote).

Of course I will try to find the stable and balanced configuration of my system. I plunge into Linux more and more and I look for analysis techniques of system dumps.
           All of good luck!

With the 12x biostar nearly here, I don't think this is the right change to make.  If the biostar can actually run 12x GPUs then I will for sure; not make this alteration.  If it can only support 9x or less GPUs then I will consider making the change.

Speaking of 12gpu motherboards, I've got an ASRock 13 GPU board arriving next week.  Any thoughts on how to configure nvOC with an ASRock to get as many as possible of the GPUs running NVidia?  (my current board is an ASRock z270 that loads 6 GPUs without too much trouble, but the new board is H110, not Z270)  I've got 9 GPUs on hand to try - 8 1070s and a 980 ti.

In theory v0017+ can support 14 GPUs (13 + 1 via m2 adapter with that ASRock mobo).

But the chipset might not currently be supported and there are likely other system changes needed.  I need one of those mobos to test.  Where did you order one from?

I got mine from Newegg.. according to ASRock, Newegg is expecting another shipment to arrive next week so you might want to setup an autonotify on the website.
He also did not provide any other distributors that I could check for stock, so newegg might be the only source for them right now.

I can't thank enough fullZero (Hero as always Smiley) for this really easy nvOC (valuable support) and other community members sharing their valuable time and info, it really really helped a lot of new miners like me to start and learn mining with out much hassle.
Although I've started mining very recently and mostly use google for all the information, it is going so far so good except for the following three things (tried googling but getting irrelevant information - all non nvOC stuff)

I would really appreciate your answers with explanation from our community.

1) Profitability switcher (from latest bash file)


I would like to know how it works? does it works with some particular coins only? What role Algo play in between and how to select a particular Algo?

for eg; in my case I'm mining ETH (dwarf pool) + SIA (Nano), does it help me to gain more with switching, if so can I get the code for it with little explanation.

I might consider myself noob in this case, But I would like to understand how it works and I would like to use it to increase my gains.

2) Using Nice Hash pools

How can I use Nice hash pools with nvOC?

I would like to mine DCR with "stratum+tcp://decred.eu.nicehash.com:3354", can someone please point me to right direction on how to mine and check shares per hour.

I think nice hash uses BTC address, I've tried it to mine with my BTC address (failed when I used DCR address), it was connecting fine and mining well but don't know how to check at what rate its mining (shares per hour etc).

3) DUAL Mining ETH_DCR

I've been using DUAL mining from past month on Ubuntu (not on nvOC), I couldn't figure out how to use pools like suprnova "dcr.suprnova.cc:3252" pool for DCR while dual mining with ETHEREUM (nano)

I do have account on suprnova with worker setup, but not sure how do use that worker with nvOC, can someone please guide me through it.

I would really really appreciate your help regarding this.

Good luck with your mining Smiley

Thanks.

Hi!

Are you already discussed about "ERROR: Looks like GPU0 (or 1 or any) are stopped. Restart attempt" ?
I have this error on one of my 1050Ti cards in about 10 minutes after start Zcash mining.
No overclocking. Just as it is. And after card error all system hangs up deadly if I'm trying to close terminal window. If don't - mining continues but without one card.
And this rig works under win10 for days and weeks w/o problems!

So.. how to fix it?

I don't disagree with you that oneBash on a fat32 part instead of exFat isn't ideal for a linux o/s to read.  I've run into problems today where my oneBash file was just empty entirely and so nvOC wouldn't boot.  

Copying oneBash to /home/m1/ on boot might be a more elegant solution to avoid these partition issues, or just avoid that partition entirely by downloading pastebin text directly to /home/m1.

Even windows doesn't like fat32 partitions that small... it forces you to format it in fat instead, so its no surprise that linux doesn't play nice with it I guess.

You bet..

If you get a second, i posted a while back about an issue I'm having in 0017 where one card runs at 66% capacity while the others are at 100%.  I'm just wondering if that's something you've seen before, and if there might be a straight forward solution to it.  If not, I'll probably just wait until I swap boards in a few days to mess with it since otherwise it's running solid as a rock with all 6 gpus.



Is the hashrate lower with the GPU running at 66%?

Hey FZ - just wanted to let you know I resolved the issue with my underpowered GPU... turns out having 2 risers on one SATA power line is frowned upon... once I put all the GPUs on their own lines the system is back up at 100%

Even windows doesn't like fat32 partitions that small... it forces you to format it in fat instead, so its no surprise that linux doesn't play nice with it I guess.

Most likely the problem is a combination of slow media (although it is possible to have the same problem with fast media) and too short of a timeout in this area of 2unix

Code:
sudo dos2unix /media/m1/1263-A96E/oneBash

sleep 2

bash '/media/m1/1263-A96E/oneBash'

I will increase the timeout in v0018 and most likely this will not be a problem.



I will make the following changes for v0018:

  The windows partition will be NTFS.

  On first boot (and only first boot) the following will occur:

    oneBash will be copied to '/home/m1/oneBash'

    dos2unix will run on '/home/m1/oneBash'

    the timeout afterwards will be 15 seconds

    the windows partition will be zeroized (and will not mount on the next boot)

With 1080 or 1080ti that is best; especially if they are AM models.  I haven't heard of anyone needing to do this with 1070s or 1060s; what type of GPUs are you using?

What are is your powerlimit / mobo / CPU / all GPUs / what COIN are you mining / what mining client are you using?

I can't thank enough fullZero (Hero as always Smiley) for this really easy nvOC (valuable support) and other community members sharing their valuable time and info, it really really helped a lot of new miners like me to start and learn mining with out much hassle.
Although I've started mining very recently and mostly use google for all the information, it is going so far so good except for the following three things (tried googling but getting irrelevant information - all non nvOC stuff)

I would really appreciate your answers with explanation from our community.

1) Profitability switcher (from latest bash file)


I would like to know how it works? does it works with some particular coins only? What role Algo play in between and how to select a particular Algo?

for eg; in my case I'm mining ETH (dwarf pool) + SIA (Nano), does it help me to gain more with switching, if so can I get the code for it with little explanation.

I might consider myself noob in this case, But I would like to understand how it works and I would like to use it to increase my gains.

2) Using Nice Hash pools

How can I use Nice hash pools with nvOC?

I would like to mine DCR with "stratum+tcp://decred.eu.nicehash.com:3354", can someone please point me to right direction on how to mine and check shares per hour.

I think nice hash uses BTC address, I've tried it to mine with my BTC address (failed when I used DCR address), it was connecting fine and mining well but don't know how to check at what rate its mining (shares per hour etc).

3) DUAL Mining ETH_DCR

I've been using DUAL mining from past month on Ubuntu (not on nvOC), I couldn't figure out how to use pools like suprnova "dcr.suprnova.cc:3252" pool for DCR while dual mining with ETHEREUM (nano)

I do have account on suprnova with worker setup, but not sure how do use that worker with nvOC, can someone please guide me through it.

I would really really appreciate your help regarding this.

Good luck with your mining Smiley

Thanks.

First configure this section of oneBash:

Code:
SALFTER_NICEHASH_PROFIT_SWITCHING="YES"

# LOCAL will attach the mining process to the guake terminal
# REMOTE will leave it unattached / ready for SSH
LOCALorREMOTE="LOCAL"       # LOCAL  or  REMOTE

CURRENCY=USD
POWER_COST=0.10
MINIMUM_PROFIT=0.0
# this is salfters BTC address:
PAYMENT_ADDRESS=1TipsGocnz2N5qgAm9f7JLrsMqkb3oXe2
WORKER_NAME=nv$IP_AS_WORKER

daggerhashimoto_POWERLIMIT_WATTS=125
__daggerhashimoto_CORE_OVERCLOCK=100
daggerhashimoto_MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=100
_______daggerhashimoto_FAN_SPEED=75

equihash_POWERLIMIT_WATTS=125
__equihash_CORE_OVERCLOCK=100
equihash_MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=100
_______equihash_FAN_SPEED=75

neoscrypt_POWERLIMIT_WATTS=125
__neoscrypt_CORE_OVERCLOCK=100
neoscrypt_MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=100
_______neoscrypt_FAN_SPEED=75

lyra2rev2_POWERLIMIT_WATTS=125
__lyra2rev2_CORE_OVERCLOCK=100
lyra2rev2_MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=100
_______lyra2rev2_FAN_SPEED=75

lbry_POWERLIMIT_WATTS=125
__lbry_CORE_OVERCLOCK=100
lbry_MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=100
_______lbry_FAN_SPEED=75

pascal_POWERLIMIT_WATTS=125
__pascal_CORE_OVERCLOCK=100
pascal_MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=100
_______pascal_FAN_SPEED=75

ensure:

Code:
SALFTER_NICEHASH_PROFIT_SWITCHING="YES"

and replace salfters BTC address with your own:
Code:
PAYMENT_ADDRESS=1TipsGocnz2N5qgAm9f7JLrsMqkb3oXe2

salfter implemented this for nicehash only.  It makes a call to a nicehash api and receives the current profitability data. 

Using your input power cost (and what I am guessing are salfters benchmarks for each algo using 2x 1070s) it calculates which coin is currently the most profitable to mine.

It then stops any mining process, and starts a new one with the most profitable coin and your OC settings for that coin.


2

You can use the SALFTER_NICEHASH_PROFIT_SWITCHING, or you can use the:

Code:
NICE_ETHASH

COIN selection

I still need to add all the other nicehash algos as normal COIN selections.

Nicehash does use a BTC payout address, when using the NICE_ETHASH COIN selection set this in this area of the oneBash settings:

Code:
# if YES ensure you update BTC_ADDRESS
VTC_AUTOCONVERT_TO_BTC="YES"        #YES  NO
VTC_WORKER="nv$IP_AS_WORKER"
VTC_ADDRESS="VsvtYL2mz3YFM3fpt5pb28zHodTbnJodRc"
VTC_POOL="stratum+tcp://lyra2v2.mine.zpool.ca:4533"

BTC_ADDRESS="18Y5HYe3BAwAhTAkFLbD52o8NqtrN3DtpF"

# NICE_ETHASH autoconverts to BTC: ensure you update BTC_ADDRESS if you use NICE_ETHASH
NICE_ETHASH_WORKER="nv$IP_AS_WORKER"
NICE_ETHASH_POOL="stratum+tcp://daggerhashimoto.usa.nicehash.com:3353"
GENOIL_NICE_ETHASH_POOL="daggerhashimoto.usa.nicehash.com:3353"
NICE_ETHASH_EXTENTION_ARGUMENTS=""   # add any additional claymore arguments desired here

this line:

Code:
BTC_ADDRESS="18Y5HYe3BAwAhTAkFLbD52o8NqtrN3DtpF"


3


at the top of oneBash ensure COIN is set to:
Code:
COIN="DUAL_ETH_DCR"

then set your ETH settings here:

Code:
ETHERMINEdotORG="NO"

CLAYMORE_VERSION="9_5"    # choose 9_5  or  9_4  or  8_0

GENOILorCLAYMORE="GENOIL"  # choose GENOIL  or  CLAYMORE


ETH_WORKER="nv$IP_AS_WORKER"
ETH_ADDRESS="0xe12bdd454997e443ec0cae6bebb6bb3c74242aae"
ETH_POOL="eth-us-east1.nanopool.org:9999"
ETH_EXTENTION_ARGUMENTS=""    # add any additional claymore arguments desired here


then set your DCR settings here:
Code:
DCR_WORKER="nv$IP_AS_WORKER"
DCR_ADDRESS="fullzero22"
DCR_POOL="stratum+tcp://dcr.suprnova.cc:3252"

Note that with supernova you need to set the workername beforehand, so I recommend changing the workername to whatever you have set already rather than making a new worker with the auto generated workername.

replace:  DCR_ADDRESS="fullzero22" with  your supernova username


Let me know if all this makes sense.

Hi!

Are you already discussed about "ERROR: Looks like GPU0 (or 1 or any) are stopped. Restart attempt" ?
I have this error on one of my 1050Ti cards in about 10 minutes after start Zcash mining.
No overclocking. Just as it is. And after card error all system hangs up deadly if I'm trying to close terminal window. If don't - mining continues but without one card.
And this rig works under win10 for days and weeks w/o problems!

So.. how to fix it?

What are is your powerlimit / mobo / CPU / all GPUs / what COIN are you mining / what mining client are you using?
All default. Didn't touch anything. Powerlimit 100, all GPUs, Zcash on EWBF 0.3.4b from github.

I think I've figured out why my profitability switcher was having problems with some coins.  I noticed it when I tried switching my rig from Genoil back to Claymore (I'm having trouble getting Genoil to run for more than 24 hours without crashing)...the script would run, and I'd end up with two or more instances of the Claymore miner running.

pgrep and pkill, when called with the -f option (to look at the whole command line), need to have "+" escaped for some reason...most likely the pattern is processed as a regular expression and not a simple string.  Any miner command string that included "stratum+tcp" (that's basically all of them except the equihash and Genoil daggerhashimoto miners) thus wasn't searchable or killable.

I've committed a fix that should take care of that.  It also prepends the search string with "^" to match on the miner process itself, not the screen process that spawned it.  (Killing the miner will automatically kill the parent screen process.)

Thanks for links.    Smiley

You bet..

If you get a second, i posted a while back about an issue I'm having in 0017 where one card runs at 66% capacity while the others are at 100%.  I'm just wondering if that's something you've seen before, and if there might be a straight forward solution to it.  If not, I'll probably just wait until I swap boards in a few days to mess with it since otherwise it's running solid as a rock with all 6 gpus.



Is the hashrate lower with the GPU running at 66%?

Hey FZ - just wanted to let you know I resolved the issue with my underpowered GPU... turns out having 2 risers on one SATA power line is frowned upon... once I put all the GPUs on their own lines the system is back up at 100%


With 1080 or 1080ti that is best; especially if they are AM models.  I haven't heard of anyone needing to do this with 1070s or 1060s; what type of GPUs are you using?


I've got:
2x asus dual 1070
3x EVGA superclock 1070
1x Nvidia 1070 FE in the x16 slot

Asrock z270 Killer SLI/AC mobo (no external power to mobo for pcie (no option for it))
dual 750w PSUs - 1x evga and 1x thermaltake
64gb USB 3 stick

No 1080s in this rig atm, though I had a 1080 ti in there yesterday in the x16 slot so no riser but the problems I've had arose with all 1070s

Before, I had it setup so that:
2 risers were powered on one molex power line
2 riser on 1 SATA lines
3x 1070 each on its own power line (450w); and
mobo/cpu all on the EVGA 750w psu; [all of that should be well within the acceptable range of draw from the PSU]

Then the other 3 1070 GPUs and 1 riser on molex were powered by the 750w thermaltake [again, well within the total power load taking overhead into account]

New setup splits the risers between the PSUs 2 go to separate lines on the EVGA, the other 3 on separate lines on the thermaltake, all on SATA power cables except 1 (though that shouldn't make a difference), and the risers are powered by the same PSU as the GPU main power is coming from whereas before they weren't.
the mobo/cpu are still on the primary EVGA PSU, and the thermaltake is connected by a Y splitter ATX cable.

The result is that the more even power load resolved the problem, though I can't be absolutely certain it was solved by splitting the risers to different lines exclusively.

In theory 14x; I may need to update some system files the new Biostar and ASRock monster mobos.

see:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg20018178#msg20018178


I have received a shipping notification for the Biostar; but I still need one of the ASRock H110 Pro BTC+ to test / ensure support:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157781

If a member has one arriving early this week (before Wednesday preferably):

I am offering double the newegg price for one + $20 for USPS Priority Mail Flatrate Box shipping (with insurance) to me:

$285 in BTC

Unless your Trust exceeds mine; I will pay upon receipt: I am also willing to use most trusted forum members as escrow if desired.

What are is your powerlimit / mobo / CPU / all GPUs / what COIN are you mining / what mining client are you using?
All default. Didn't touch anything. Powerlimit 100, all GPUs, Zcash on EWBF 0.3.4b from github.

not sure what you mean by this:
Quote
EWBF 0.3.4b from github.

EWBF releases his client via google drive and MEGA links.

Did you for some reason change the EWBF clients on nvOC?


A 1050ti has a max powerlimit of 75, setting a powerlimit of 100; sets no powerlimit as the cmd is invalid.

What mobo / CPU / all 1050tis?


If 3.4 is giving you problems you can try 3.3 by changing:

Code:
EWBF_VERSION="3_4"

to
Code:
EWBF_VERSION="3_3"

How many GPUs are you using?

Are you using risers, if so what kind are they, and how are you powering them?

If you are powering 1050tis using risers without using 6 pin pcie direct to the risers; they will never be stable.

Please test and ensure with confidence; that it is rock solid: then I will integrate these changes. 

It would be helpful if you did so with the integrated oneBash + switch version I made (swap the relevant part of switch with your updated code); so I can be sure it works as intended.

Which driver version are you using?

Also do you know which GPU model was the one that was insufficiently powered?
