Any options or commands that can enable an output to view whats actually being hashed? To view the code, so to speak. I know its either ccminer or cgminer that has this option. Its just the geek in me that likes to see whats going on.

Is there a consensus regarding this miner? Is it really much better than ewbf? Do we have an organized comparison between the two in various conditions for various cards?

The comparison is that this miner is clearly an unstable beta version, an I lost 3 hours of mining today... again.
And we are paying 2% fee on top of that, to participate to a beta test...

It happens because very smart boy - dstm hardcoded fee pool in this miner. When pool (flypool) is down miner is out of work. So I lost more than hour on my farms it is much more than fee. Now I switched to EWBF - it is less vulnerable to such a treats.

Bye bye dstm..

I was trying to figure out what went wrong, it's been stable AF, running few weeks straight and then suddenly all those emails saying that miner has gone offline.

Few hours downtime is not that bad compared to all those months EWBF's made ~7% less.

With my 1070s, I have 460 sols instead of 440. So that's ~4.5% for me.
Today, with a 3 hours hole and the 2% fees, that makes 14.5% less...

I don't understand why the mining would need to stop if it can't connect to flypool. I mean, the fee shares are lost anyway.
So, what communication with pool owners? Just cut the crap

Looks like the dev fees are priority number one here, that sure works perfectly!

this morning there was an outage in EU affecting several pool providers that had the EU servers there: suprnova, flypool, ethermine, miningspeed, hence an almost 3 hour downtime.

We already know that.
The problem here is that the server for the dev fee is hardcoded (eu flypool).
So, if eu flypool is down, you can't mine anywhere with zm.

Was it so hard for you to visit pool website and realize, that EU nodes are down? Then was it so hard for you to edit your miner with US pool address and continue mining? No one shouldn't do this instead of you, for whatever fee...

Guys! is that so hard to understand that you can edit whatever you want, it won't work!
it is HARDCODED
zm try to connect to eu server anyway, for the DEV FEE

I'm as noob as you here, but at least read the last 2 pages before posting shit

To avoid misinterpretations of my previous statement:

ZM's reliability is of high priority.
There is no doubt - this needs improvement.
I'm thinking about a better solution to this ofc.
This requires some communication with pool owners and some testing.
I'll provide an update as soon as possible.
Sry for the downtime.

NP  just make it more clear what you mean this software seems awesome or better then EWBF's CUDA Zcash miner ...so until you get it working again please take your time fixing it and ignore some of the others an me for that fact ..... an fix it : ) ...the good thing i guess no one seems to care about the Fee they just want it working because it does work good, when it is working ... or better then EWBF's CUDA Zcash miner .

I do have one request add some color to the screen ...Smiley .....

Yeah, make us pay to beta test and ignore us... that's the best way to go!
If people change their miner for a 4% gain, they certainly care for 2% fee as well.

Some more information about the downtime:

OVH hosting went down for a couple of hours today. They are one of the biggest hosting service in Europe - multiple pools went down because of this in Europe.

Concerning zm's developer fee implementation:                                                                                 
It's not easy to differentiate between a server outage and someone simply blocking network access to dev fee servers for a user space program. This is why zm behaves like this. Nevertheless expected downtime due to this is still very low.

There are multiple technical solutions to this.                                                                               
Failover servers is one possibility, however they have to be chosen carefully such that they are distributed among different hosting providers.

Another possibility is to differentiate between a server outage and someone trying to bypass dev fee. Such an implementation would allow to simply disable dev fee as long as the corresponding server is down. However this would require zm to communicate with it's own servers.

A third possibility is to extend zm such that it's able to solve blocks without the need of a pool. This one requires the most work - I'm currently not sure about the constraints of this solution, however it might also be useful for some users.

For users that have concerns about zm's current reliability because of this. Pls use a different mining software - it's your choice ofc.

Well, after reading this, it's clear that you fees are your number one concern.
You do not care about the down time as long as your fees are not stolen.

This kind of reasoning will get you hacked, this is just a matter of time.
