Got my second right up and running, currently tuning the 1060's with Ethminer, genoil fork on VER0017 nvOC.

So far getting around 149MH/s total on 6 cards with these settings. Short term stability is their, long term us currently unknown.

Getting about 24.83MH/s on each.

5 cards:
PL: 125
Core: -100
Mem: 1700

1 card:
PL: 125
Core: -100
Mem: 1700

Anybody else have settings for their 1060s as I am curious to what others have gotten so far.

Besides stability for the OC, going to be stepping down the power to optimize it.

Besides stability for the OC, going to be stepping down the power to optimize it.
Depending on the mobo I can get 25/26 MHs per 1060 under genoil with the watchdog script with -75 and +1450 with power limit at 82W.
With Claymore I was able to crank it up to 170/1700/82 and get another 1-2 MHs per card and it was relatively stable but when it did crash it did not recover without intervention  so for now I'm going with Genoil and finding different ways to deal with the remaining instability (which to me means a reboot ever 1-2 days at the moment).

That is awesome to hear! I am right below the 25MH/s. With your powerlimit you suggested, I haven't gotten to but it gave me a good baseline. I was not aware the 1060's are that power efficient even under a heavy OC. My 1070s I could barely go below 115 with such heavy OC on it.

Biggest reason I want Genoil is the no fee attached to the miner compared to claymore.

What watchdog script you talking about? Or did you make it?

Claymore 9.7 is out and on my Windows10 machine I went from Dual Mining ETH: 94.5 MH/s and SC: 945 MH/s increased to ETH: 99 MH/s and SC: 990 MH/s.  No other changes and exactly the same OC.  We will see if it stays stable.  Possible addition to v18? 

I am just unable to keep my nvOC stable.  It keeps hanging and locking up the OS.  I am currently loading Windows 10 on my rig just to see if I have a hardware issue that I can't figure out.  If Windows 10 stays stable I don't know what I will do.  I REALLY like nvOC.  If I had another stick of ram laying around I would stick it in.  I will order one if I have to.

I just copied the content of the claymore 9.7 into 9.5 folder and run the miner. So far I'm getting 190mh/s mining eth from 6 nvidia gtx 1070 as for the 9.5 - the version on the 0017 onebash I was getting 183mh/s. Thinking this is a must to be implemented as soon as possible.

For everyone that have stability problems where the OS hangs or slows down to a halt, this is due to Xorg taking 100% of one of the cpu cores, as far as i can tell this usually only begins after some kind of soft crash from overclocking/undervolting, i've googled my ass off and found a few references of people claiming to have solved this problem by configuring Xorg to run from the integrated intel GPU and leaving the nvidia cards to pure computations, my linux know how is Very limited so this is more of a question for fullzero.

what do you think Fullzero?

your xorg.conf is most likely the problem

I would try re imaging a USB; although depending on your version you might not need to: what version are you using?

Also I don't recommend using dd to image USBs or SSDs; use etcher for linux instead.

Tried using hdd raw copy on win machine and etcher - same issue.

Tried burning the image on SSD and USB - same.

Using v0017 and latest oneBash

Could anyone provide me their xorg.conf which works with fan speed changing?

Thanks

v0017 should automatically restore your oneBash if it is altered.  There is a backup in the system already.

open the guake terminal and enter:

Code:
sudo cp '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup' '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

then logout and login

Powerstates are weird in Linux; usually don't change if you issue the command to change them.  I suspect this particular driver disallows nvidia-settings control over them.

Also you will need to use a higher OC offset to match the results from windows; as the OC curve is different in linux.

It seems like the power state will not change if the miner is running since the value is locked while in use by the miner, probably because the xserver p-state setting is initialized when linux loads but the miner changes the p-state settings after that which resets the values overriding the o/s default settings. Once that's done, you have to stop the miner, reset the p-state in nvidia config panel  and then run the miner again... but the problem is that oneBash changes the setting back when it loads.  I've tested setting the cards individually to 'prefer max performance' in nvidia's control panel while miner is running.  P-state doesn't change.  As soon as the miner, is closed the p-state will go up to max settings as you'd expect.

One way I think you could avoid this is by not setting power states in oneBash, but rather set them manually in the nvidia xserver settings so they are in place before oneBash runs.  I'm sure there's a way to automate the P-state through nvidia xserver config file, but I'd have to dig around to find out how precisely to do it.  That also means you'd have to remove the p-state config from the oneBash options to avoid it being changed back by the miner script.

In my tests different GPUs had different levels of responsiveness to the power state cmds.  Maybe the new driver will work better overall.

There is no explict power state implementation in oneBash; if it is changed it is due to internal workings of the nvidia api when either OC or powerlimit is applied.  It is possible that adding power state cmds before the launching of the mining client, but after the powerlimit and OC will work.




How tricky would it be to use the nvidia-settings commands from within oneBash to run the following command recursively for each card that's detected when it runs, rather than setting a specific power limit or clock offset?

Enable PowerMizer (Prefer Maximum Performance)

nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:0]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1'


essentially this, but with more efficient code because I never was good at foreach loops and such...

if [ $POWERLIMIT == "NO" ]
then
sudo nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:0]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1'
sudo nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:1]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1'
sudo nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:2]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1'
sudo nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:3]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1'
sudo nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:4]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1'
sudo nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:5]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1'
fi


On a side note, I updated to the most recent nvidia open source drivers (v. 381) and now my 1080 ti is recognized, so that's a plus.  Before it just listed as 'graphical device'

This is what I was alluding to before.

Have you tried this placing it: after the powerlimit and OC, but before launching the mining client?

I linked IAmNotAJeep's script post on the OP.

I use an 85 powerlimit with 1060s currently.  I usually only test every 5 watts, and 80 began to effect hashrate, maybe 82 is the OPT.

I will add claymore 9.7 to the next version.

I am guessing claymore implemented the new CUDA implementation in this version; if the performance is that different.

One card was giving problems so its mem OC is now 1625 and the others are 1700. After the change going solid for about 4 hours now. Also dropped Power to 100 watts per card now. (3 of them are set at a min of 90, so going to drop them here in a few hours to see if 3 will go at 90 watts)

what do you think Fullzero?

This change could possibly improve stability with higher OC on the primary GPU; but it would also introduce other problems into the system which don't currently exist. 

Using the Integrated graphics lowers the number of GPUs which can be supported; as it both uses more system resources and increases the load on the CPU significantly.

You might have noticed; other mining OSes which use this method only support 8x GPUs. 

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 have had a lot of requests for this; so here is a new oneBash and modded switch file which implement full integration of SALFTER_NICEHASH_PROFIT_SWITCHING

see the OP for links:

Replace your current oneBash with the new one.

extract switch and move it to the:
Code:
/home/m1

directory

(the one which opens when you click the Files icon on the left)

configure the following in 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:

remember to thank salfter if you use this  Smiley



Thanks for implementing this, but for some odd reason I keep getting two instances of the miner screen running which causes the system to crash, I will do some more testing to try and figure out what is going on.

EDIT: Actually the kill code does not seem to work causing multiple miner screens, this is how the system is crashing.

Are you using LOCAL or REMOTE?

Please walk me through how you got multiple instances running so I can recreate this myself.
