Just a tip. A 'renice' of -5 helps to stabalize the output (at least on my 2-core system)

That's how bug fixing should be Wink

Concerning the output: The miner uses an asynchronous design. Everything (each GPU, networking etc.) is independent and separated. This design should scale well even on large systems. So you're right, the scheduler affects the output.

I think adding a power efficiency table would be a nice feature? Most ppl are used to EWBF style anyway.

Something like Sol/Watt ? Seems useful, I'll add it in my next release.

@dtsm so what makes your mining program better than any others? program is still pretty lacking for a 2 percent dev fee. how do we know your not going to do just like ewbf and grab the money and run and leave the miner up with a fee while still raking in the money. why did you choose a 2 percent dev fee? just cause that's what everyone else is doing? compared to claymores miners, not speed wise but as a whole, your program is way off from being worth 2 percent

I haven't done any comparisons beside performance. It seems to perform pretty well in comparison, however you should use whatever is more useful for you.

You can't, however I'm not planning to do this and I'll let you know ofc. if I won't have enough time for development in the future.

I haven't done any calculations, yes it's that simple.

Tried v0.4.1 on my 1080ti, cannot see significant  performance improvement at 200 watts.
If I set the power limit to 250watts, the miner said "cudaMemcpy 1 failed" and hanged.

It's the second time someone has reported a failure on memcpy. It seemed it was due to a bad riser. I'll check this part again, thx.

I checked the this part again. I'm not sure why it fails for you while doing PCIE data transfers. I'll include more debugging output into my next version. This should help to pin down the problem.                                                         
                                                                                                                               
Btw. if you compare the numbers ShowMeCoins posted for version 0.4 and version 0.4.1 - he has an speedup of about 1% for 0.4.1 on his system, that's about what I expected.

New Version 0.4.2

mp: more accurate time measurements
ui: calculate efficiency

Nvidia states that power usage readings have an accuracy to within +/- 5% of current power draw, be aware of this. I've balanced the sample rate, since reading the power usage too often consumes a significant amount of cpu time, I'm not sure if it also produces latencies on the PCIE-Bus. I'm using the average solution rate to calculate this value since that's the most accurate way to do it, be aware of this if you compare the values with other mining software. First values might be inaccurate since the solution rate is probabilistic, however it converges after some time, i.e. it gets more accurate the longer it runs.

LOL, so much text for a such small change Smiley However that's how the things are.

Just been mining a few hours with 0.4.2 and noticed it had stopped with a "msg buffer full" error.

I had been running 0.4.1 for longer and didn't have the error so not sure if it's something caused by the changes.

Rig is seven 1070s running on nanopool.

Performance for me is matching EWBF and seems a bit more consistent over time according to the stats from the pool.

Feature request: It'd be nice if the miner can restart itself/reboot the machine (maybe make it like -r option in Claymore miner) when something goes wrong (GPU crashes, etc.)
