I've just set up a gpu miner using poclbm. However, when I run python poclbm.py the only device it picks up is my graphics card. I would also like to contribute my cpu to the workload too.
I notice that in the bitcoin daemon I can set generate to "true". With it false, bitcoind getinfo shows "hashespersec" of zero, but it gets a value when true. I should also mention that when poclbm is running, I am seeing a hashrate of ~22Mh/s from poclbm which seems about right for the card I'm using.. its an Nvidia GT260 (I think - don't actually trust the drivers!).
So my questions are:
Firstly, with the generate set to false, is my gpu miner via poclbm actually working - should I see a non-zero value in hashespersec?
If I set generate to true, with poclbm running, do I get any benefit from the cpu, or should I be running a seperate cpu miner via RPC?
Should poclbm be picking up my cpu as well? - its a Xeon Q9550.
Finally, would I see any benefit from using cuba rather than opencl?
Thanks for any advice
