Hey guys, I lurk and have been poking around but I don't know python so I haven't been able to look at it as much as I would like. 

Anywho, I have a development/feature idea and feel free to relocate to somewhere else if they are supposed to go somewhere else but it is for papampi's wtm auto switcher.  It works well, but I was thinking about something that could possibly help in certain situations.

Let me know if I am being an idiot and/or overthinking this. 

I timed the switch between coins when a new coin is found and used that to extrapolate from the set switching interval (default 3min) that in order to overcome switching losses from downtime that I would need to set the minimum difference to 9% (up from 7 default).  Now the situation I just observed casually was ZCL holding at about 7.5% greater profit than the current coin for roughly 15 minutes (5 checks) before going to 15% higher and the rig actually switched.  My idea would be a degrading minimum switching percentage kinda like what miningpoolhub does with their switching algo.  The reasoning behind it is that with every subsequent check where the coin doesn't switch would actually lead to a lower minimum difference required to overcome those switching losses.  You want the switching minimum to be high in the beginning so you aren't chasing a 7.5% increase with a 9% loss from switching.  In my case. the actual 3-minute switching loss would be 8.4 initially and drops to 4.7% by switching every 6 minutes.  3.1 every 9, and on and on.  Would it be hard to implement setting an initial minimum switching and then set a degrading percentage that it goes down by every 3 minutes until it goes to a lower minimum switching level?  In my case, i would like after a few iterations of being on the same coin that it would go down to say 1% difference and would switch easily.  Then start back over at the upper minimum switching percentage and degrade all over again.

Thanks guys,

Ryansgt

I think there was a bug in wtm script with cpuminer, I fixed it but forgot to change dev version for it
Can you check and see if you have this line :

Code:
if  [[ $ALGO_SPECIFIC_OC == "NO" && $plusCPU == "NO" ]] || [[ $ALGO_SPECIFIC_OC == "YES"  &&  $CURRENT_COIN_ALGORITHM == $TOP_COIN_ALGORITHM ]]; then
   

If yes change it to :

Code:
if  [[ $ALGO_SPECIFIC_OC == "NO" ]] || [[ $ALGO_SPECIFIC_OC == "YES"  &&  $CURRENT_COIN_ALGORITHM == $TOP_COIN_ALGORITHM ]]; then

Restart wtm and 3main and see how it goes.

Code:
pkill -f 8wtm
pkill -e screen
pkill -f 3main

Thanks for looking Papampi.
But what directory and what file should I search for this piece of code?

Edit: I found it.  Smiley It was in 8wtm_auto_switch in the home folder.
I have made the change and at first glance it appears to have solved the issue.
I started it with ETH and I now see a switch to lyra2v2 and MONA coin.
If this is correct I should see some amount of MONA in the balance on MPH soon enough.
I will report what my results are.
Thanks again for your help!


Ok an update. The WTM switching is working great right now.
I am about to move the changes over to my other rigs to see what the overall effect is on profit.
I need to tune the OC's and power numbers some because I see quite a delta between coins.
Equihash coins run right at the 180W level I have for the 1080.
Neoscrypt seems to run around 140W so I have upped the intensity a bit to see what effect it has.
There has likely been a discussion here about the WTM settings for power and clock tuning but I haven't found it yet if anyone can point me to it.
Thanks again for all the help!

I would suggest you to verify checksum of the downloaded zip and use winrar to extract it.

I guess it was added in the later version of updates.

You can get all new coins from here :

1bash :

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/papampi/nvOC_by_fullzero_Community_Release/19-2.1/1bash


0miner :

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/papampi/nvOC_by_fullzero_Community_Release/19-2.1/0miner


Else, you can just add the ella parts from 1bash and 0miner, search for ELLA and copy the relevant parts.

to 1bash

Quote
#Ellaism ELLA
ELLA_WORKER="$WORKERNAME"
ELLA_ADDRESS="replace_with_your_address"
ELLA_POOL="replace_with_pool_address"
ELLA_PORT="replace_with_pool_port"
ELLA_EXTENSION_ARGUMENTS=""    # add any additional Claymore miner arguments here

to 0 miner

Quote
if [ $COIN == "ELLA" ]
then
  ELLAADDR="$ELLA_ADDRESS/$ELLA_WORKER"
  if [ $DOT_POOL_FORMAT_or_FORWARD_SLASH_POOL_FORMAT == "DOT" ]
  then
    ELLAADDR="$ELLA_ADDRESS.$ELLA_WORKER"
  fi
  if [ $ETHASH_MINER == "GENOIL" ]
  then
    HCD='/home/m1/miners/Genoil-U/ethminer'
    screen -dmSL miner $HCD -S $ELLA_POOL:$ELLA_PORT -O $ELLAADDR:x -SP 1 -U $ELLA_EXTENSION_ARGUMENTS
  fi
  if [ $ETHASH_MINER == "ETHMINER" ]
  then
    HCD='/home/m1/miners/ethminer/latest/ethminer'
    screen -dmSL miner $HCD -S $ELLA_POOL:$ELLA_PORT -O $ELLAADDR:x -SP 1 -U $ELLA_EXTENSION_ARGUMENTS
  fi
  if [ $ETHASH_MINER == "CLAYMORE" ]
  then
    HCD=/home/m1/miners/claymore/$CLAYMORE_VERSION/ethdcrminer64
    screen -dmSL miner $HCD -epool $ELLA_POOL:$ELLA_PORT -ewal $ELLAADDR -epsw x -mode 1 -allpools 1 -dbg -1 $ELLA_EXTENSION_ARGUMENTS
  fi
fi

Hope it helps.

Thanks, Powershell is reporting the checksum is wrong. I've tried downloading about 10 times using each different source, using different downloader programs (including just straight through Chrome) and can't get anything that will  extract, except for nvOC_v0019.zip. I've tried 7zip and Winrar to extract, but the incorrect checksums kind of mean the archive program doesn't matter at this point.

I've noticed recently Verge (Lyra2rev2 algo) XVG coin shooting up to three times the profit of other coins on WTM auto switcher by papampi so i wanted to provide this short guide to add XVG coin to nvOC.  I am using v0019-2.0, so i apologize if it's already included in the latest build.

Firstly, when you setup WTM you must uncheck the "Groestl" algo, as Verge coin allows for multiple algo mining.  WTM will only report out current profits for Groestl algo and not Lyra2rev2, which we want to mine.  If you don't uncheck Groestl algo, XVG coin will always be at the bottom of the WTM profit checking list and will never auto switch.  Once you have your WTM configured correctly, hit calculate, and follow the instructions in 1bash to add it (add in .json after coins).  Then add "XVG" to the list of coins for WTM to profit check.

Add "XVG" to list of coins for WTM to profit check (example below)
Code:
WTM_AUTO_SWITCH_COINS="ZEC;ZEN;ZCL;ETH;ETC;MONA;VTC;ZCOIN;BTG;FTC;XVG;XMR" ### coins to check profit or make the switch with format "ZEC;ETH;ETC;XMR"

Next add the following code to 1bash
Code:
# XVG ## No Need to add stratum+tcp:// to server address
XVG_WORKER="$WORKERNAME"
XVG_ADDRESS="BTC wallet address"        
XVG_POOL="lyra2v2.mine.zpool.ca"      
XVG_PORT="4533"
XVG_INTENSITY="0"

Add "-o $COIN == XVG" to this portion of code if you are using algo specific OC settings (these are my settings for GTX 1070)
Code:
# lyra2vRev2
  if [ $COIN == "MONA" -o $COIN == "VTC" -o $COIN == "XVG" ]
  then
    ALGORITHM="LYRA2REV2"
    POWERLIMIT_WATTS=130
    __CORE_OVERCLOCK=125
    MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=600
  fi

Add the following code to 0miner
Code:
if [ $COIN == "XVG" ]
then
  HCD='/home/m1/ASccminer/ccminer'
  ADDR="$XVG_ADDRESS"
  screen -dmSL miner $HCD -a lyra2v2 -o stratum+tcp://$XVG_POOL:$XVG_PORT -u $ADDR -p c=XVG -i $XVG_INTENSITY
fi

I confirmed this works on Zpool as i was generating BTC (Zpool converts mined coins to BTC).

Thanks for such nice illustration on how to add this coin, I guess it was probably already there but with different algo, am not sure though.

Your presentation is pushing me to ask you if you can write up some tutorials on how to do things on nvOC (only if you up for it)  Smiley

Let me know if you are interested.

You can contact PM me here or on our official discord channel : https://discord.gg/8YDFEvY

Honestly damNmad you read my mind.  I like doing this kind of stuff (i'm an engineer) and i'm anal as hell about everything.  I'd like to put together a post on hardware setups for mining rigs and converting a trio rig to a 6 x card rig (this is what i did) as that was lacking information.  I'd like to do some testing to prove out some of my theories on things.  But let me see what i can put together in about a week or so regarding adding coins.

Also fyi, i revised the post you quoted because I learned later that Zpool doesn't actually mine that specific coin (XVG), it mines a group of Lrya2rev2 algo coins.  So i switched to suprnova pool and revised to code to utilize that server instead as it mines that coin directly.

I'm not an engeneer and i do this before ...Just a technician that read all bash and python scripts. If users takes a little time to read the scripts like you we could reduce our support time.
I wrote it on 2 january 2018 :
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg27353620#msg27353620

Because you seem to mine XVG, and because you are engeneer could you try this python WTM_SWITCHER script discribed in my post:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg29824880#msg29824880

For Zpool problem, it was quote here :

Hey guys, I lurk and have been poking around but I don't know python so I haven't been able to look at it as much as I would like. 

Anywho, I have a development/feature idea and feel free to relocate to somewhere else if they are supposed to go somewhere else but it is for papampi's wtm auto switcher.  It works well, but I was thinking about something that could possibly help in certain situations.

Let me know if I am being an idiot and/or overthinking this. 

I timed the switch between coins when a new coin is found and used that to extrapolate from the set switching interval (default 3min) that in order to overcome switching losses from downtime that I would need to set the minimum difference to 9% (up from 7 default).  Now the situation I just observed casually was ZCL holding at about 7.5% greater profit than the current coin for roughly 15 minutes (5 checks) before going to 15% higher and the rig actually switched.  My idea would be a degrading minimum switching percentage kinda like what miningpoolhub does with their switching algo.  The reasoning behind it is that with every subsequent check where the coin doesn't switch would actually lead to a lower minimum difference required to overcome those switching losses.  You want the switching minimum to be high in the beginning so you aren't chasing a 7.5% increase with a 9% loss from switching.  In my case. the actual 3-minute switching loss would be 8.4 initially and drops to 4.7% by switching every 6 minutes.  3.1 every 9, and on and on.  Would it be hard to implement setting an initial minimum switching and then set a degrading percentage that it goes down by every 3 minutes until it goes to a lower minimum switching level?  In my case, i would like after a few iterations of being on the same coin that it would go down to say 1% difference and would switch easily.  Then start back over at the upper minimum switching percentage and degrade all over again.

Thanks guys,

Ryansgt

I think I understand what you want to do, but your explanation is too vague.

I will try to summarize more simply:
you want a fluctuant checking time for the script that will be modified according to additional and / or specific parameters of each coins you choose ?

Could you explain more clearly through three examples of Coins please?
For example, imagine a scenario that fluctuates between ETH, ZEN, GBX or FTC and XVG. Describe each step separately as a list.

I am not a python developer, and unfortunately, I think that papampi is not very comfortable with this language either. Papampi forked Scott Alfter's MPH script to use Whatomine.com.
But maybe users will know how to give you what you want.

Hey guys, I lurk and have been poking around but I don't know python so I haven't been able to look at it as much as I would like.  

Anywho, I have a development/feature idea and feel free to relocate to somewhere else if they are supposed to go somewhere else but it is for papampi's wtm auto switcher.  It works well, but I was thinking about something that could possibly help in certain situations.

Let me know if I am being an idiot and/or overthinking this.  

I timed the switch between coins when a new coin is found and used that to extrapolate from the set switching interval (default 3min) that in order to overcome switching losses from downtime that I would need to set the minimum difference to 9% (up from 7 default).  Now the situation I just observed casually was ZCL holding at about 7.5% greater profit than the current coin for roughly 15 minutes (5 checks) before going to 15% higher and the rig actually switched.  My idea would be a degrading minimum switching percentage kinda like what miningpoolhub does with their switching algo.  The reasoning behind it is that with every subsequent check where the coin doesn't switch would actually lead to a lower minimum difference required to overcome those switching losses.  You want the switching minimum to be high in the beginning so you aren't chasing a 7.5% increase with a 9% loss from switching.  In my case. the actual 3-minute switching loss would be 8.4 initially and drops to 4.7% by switching every 6 minutes.  3.1 every 9, and on and on.  Would it be hard to implement setting an initial minimum switching and then set a degrading percentage that it goes down by every 3 minutes until it goes to a lower minimum switching level?  In my case, i would like after a few iterations of being on the same coin that it would go down to say 1% difference and would switch easily.  Then start back over at the upper minimum switching percentage and degrade all over again.

Thanks guys,

Ryansgt

I think I understand what you want to do, but your explanation is too vague.

I will try to summarize more simply:
you want a fluctuant checking time for the script that will be modified according to additional and / or specific parameters of each coins you choose ?

Could you explain more clearly through three examples of Coins please?
For example, imagine a scenario that fluctuates between ETH, ZEN, GBX or FTC and XVG. Describe each step separately as a list.

I am not a python developer, and unfortunately, I think that papampi is not very comfortable with this language either. Papampi forked Scott Alfter's MPH script to use Whatomine.com.
But maybe users will know how to give you what you want.

Actually wtm switcher started as a fork of damNmad smartminer, but in time it totally changed to a new code with help of many users.

Oops, The correction is now recognized and memorized.
Sorry for this bad information.

I'm not an engeneer and i do this before ...Just a technician that read all bash and python scripts. If users takes a little time to read the scripts like you we could reduce our support time.
I wrote it on 2 january 2018 :
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg27353620#msg27353620

But you omise to mention that Groestl algo must be inactivated if you are using WTM switch.

Because you seem to mine XVG, and because you are engeneer could you try this python WTM_SWITCHER script discribed in my post:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg29824880#msg29824880

For Zpool problem, it was quote here :
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg28435458#msg28435458

You can propose all you want if it's not already proposed BUT Please use forum search engine before. it works well

Happy Minning mate.

I'm confused by your response, as it sounds your making some rash assumptions on my part.  I did use the search tool and found your posts.  I wasn't asking for support, i was providing it to users because using the code you posted DID NOT WORK.  Which is why i re-posted.  But since your so smart...maybe you can figure out what is wrong with it and let us know Smiley  You know because us "engeneer" technician types need help

I've since gone back and corrected it to use Suprnova, and if you took the time to read my post (and not immediately go into troll mode) i did say that you need to disable Groestl on the WTM website.  Which i also found using the search function.  Look at the bigger picture buddy, don't try to knock people trying to help.

Happy trolling....mate

With the help from the devs here I have the WTM switcher running pretty well.
Still working on some OC issues with my 1060s on a couple of algos but I'm getting support there as well.  Smiley

I noticed that when a coin switch occurs the XMR cpu mining I have enabled stops, opens a new tab in guake and starts again.
Is there some way to stop this from happening?
I don't think I am losing a lot of hash but it does fill the screen with a lot of of unused tabs.
Thanks.

When damNmad algo OC is enabled and coin algo switches, wtm restart 3main so that new OC takes effect and when 3main restarts it restarts  cpu miner, gpu miner, ...
I can make cpu miner to run in screen mode just like others so it won't open new guake tab on every restart for nvOC v19-2.1

I have two rigs both mining ZCL on Supernova and this has happened twice that both rigs will freeze within a minute of eachother. I saw the first time while being connected via teamviewer that the server "disconnects" briefly within the miner and that watchdog will then re-start the 3main, get hung up and freeze. I assume this is what happened again. I would point to a hardware issue, but both separately going down at the same time with no telegram errors? Too much of a coincidence. I don't have any of the cards overclocked at this point, both systems were up for almost two days before the last freeze.

This keeps happening over and over again. I am going to try a new mining pool, but I've liked SuperNova. I have zero issues with it on my personal desktop with two 1070 Ti's on windows and using Awesome Miner.

Any thoughts would be great.
Hello urnzwy! Do you have Asrock H110 Pro Btc+ motherboard?
I have two rigs with this motherboard. When one freezes the other one looses the internet connection.

Hi all,

Trying to download nvOC-V0019-2.0.img.tar.gz however every copy I've got (direct and gdrive) have given an error from 7zip saying the file must be broken when I try to extract it.

Any issues or a good source to get it from?


I would suggest you to verify checksum of the downloaded zip and use winrar to extract it.

Please check this page :

https://nvoc-mining-os.com/downloads/download-page-nvidea/

Thanks, Powershell is reporting the checksum is wrong. I've tried downloading about 10 times using each different source, using different downloader programs (including just straight through Chrome) and can't get anything that will  extract, except for nvOC_v0019.zip. I've tried 7zip and Winrar to extract, but the incorrect checksums kind of mean the archive program doesn't matter at this point.

PS C:\Users\maclean\Downloads\Compressed> Get-FileHash .\nvOC-V0019-2.0.img.tar.gz -Algorithm SHA256

Algorithm       Hash                                                                   Path
---------       ----                                                                   ----
SHA256          BA8A952ABCBD5561630B6F7DBAB57FA09C3221B664B9F3F8D55F050C65FD1C0B       C:\Users\maclean\Downloads\Co...


PS C:\Users\maclean\Downloads\Compressed>

That's odd!!

Are you on windows 10? Can you try this please :

Quote
How to check the SHA256 hash code using windows command prompt (you can also check other hashing algorithm codes too) :

* Open command prompt, navigate to the directory where you have the target file

* Type this command & wait for a while to generate the hash (does take some time)

             certUtil -hashfile fileToCheck SHA256

Have tried downloading again. NinjaDownloader reports it has downloaded correctly.

Running that command has given me 42dc4a51037e50a658e3717e020bf178f76d6113a3cc27e01ce08c186126dacc I've got the same broken file error in 7zip and winrar is saying checksum error.

Downloading with Chrome never seems to complete, drops out around 2G mostly. I'm on 40/100 fibre Internet so shouldn't be that.

That sounds like a great solution Papampi. Thanks for the support.
