Trying to mine Zclassic on ny1.minez.zone:3054 get the following error:

https://minez.zone

Press CTRL+C to quit ...#  zm 0.5.4

#  GPU0  connected to: ny1.minez.zone:3054
#  GPU0  server set difficulty to: 0000ccccccccccccd0000000...

Tried 0.5.5, same error

Press CTRL+C to quit ...#  zm 0.5.5

Thx, will check if there are any major differences for 01000020.

Since updating to 0.5.5, on Windows 10 (clean install), when the miner encounters various errors, the error will sometimes appear in a Windows message box and blocks the miner from continuing to mine until I hit "Ok." Was this version accidentally built as Debug instead of Release (i.e. in Visual Studio)?!?!!

I'm not using the visual studio ide or it's buid system, the release process is automated - it wasn't build with debugging symbols enabled.

This might be useful

Miner works 5-6 minutes, then crashes at the same settings with ewbf. Gtx 1080x8

This is most likely due to overclocking. You have to readjust it - zm puts a different load on your GPUs.

but ewbf working with this settings. if I slow down, there is no reason to use dtms

I had to lower my clocks just a little bit but its still faster than ewbf, test it out.

I completely removed the overclock from my cards, and i still get issues after a few seconds after launch, i think there is something else, and it's across 10 rigs so...

I was wondering how do you deal with intensity inside your miner ? to decide how hard you go on the GPU's ? maybe if you include custom setting per gpu we could find the sweet spot for any GPU depending on making & brand. You miner seems to push extremely hard the gpu's, and maybe "lower" tier ones even of the same model could need some tweakings even if they're not overclocked i dunno. For example i have EVGA's cards that work with your miner as stated in a post before that i consider to be higher tier than the other rigs that use KFA2's, they're both 1070 but the KFA's perform lower than the EVGA's but the rigs consume less power so it all balance out.

Concerning intensity: There is no such thing like intensity which I'm setting to make the GPUs run faster, if this is what you're thinking about. The performance depends mainly on how well you've designed your algorithm and how well the program that implements it is able to utilize the GPU.

If I understood you right, zm fails on cudaMemcpy on some of your rigs. Does a particular GPU fail or do they fail all at once?

I think that we need more work on polishing and  killing bugs dstm, cause still we have some questions about stability
if the question of stability really important, then your miner lose, unfortunately at the moment

Idk about that. If your rig is solid there shouldnt be any issues. Im at 7 days straight uptime on a 1060 rig.

ZM had never stability issues (except a reconnection bug). Some users use it for about 3 months without issues this is also the case on my systems.

I notice ZM sometimes freezes when I clic in the terminal.

Now, I avoid to click inside and I click on the top of the window to get the terminal in front

It is pretty obvious when I use ipad with distant desktop app.

Most of the time it's GPU 0,1,2 that fail (probably because the load is distributed sequentially across all the GPU's, so the miner crash even before loading up all the gpu's), but it's across a whole 10 rigs of 6x1070, also to note they work perfectly on EWBF, hence why i was thinking ZM may push them harder than they can handle, but if nothing can be done "intensity" wise i guess i have to abandon the idea to use your miner on those specific rigs, and only keep the EVGA's one using it... It's also weird that even with no overclock the miner crash as fast than with OC.

I like using this miner but I would like to know how can I exclude specific card from mining? The problem is that on second rig I have one gt730 and one 1070 and miner wont work because of this one low end card. I would like to disable it and keep mining with 1070. Can you let me know what parameter to use for that?
Thanks.

I have tried dstm v0.5.4 and v0.5.5 for several weeks on my two rigs with Acrefawn autostart premium script (which BTW is great, saved me many sols). On one rig (6 x 1070 Asus Dual) I got on average 2800 sols. Comparing to EWBF it is almost 100 sols more. On second rig with mixed configuration (Palit 1060 , Strix 1070, Strix 1080Ti, Palit 1070) 1850 sols - no difference comparing to EWBF. My experience confirms that dstm is the best on gtx 1070. Initially I was very pleased with additional sols but frequent crashes forced me to revert to EWBF. I got crashes even without OC. Crashes are no problem with Acrefawn script but they reduce the sols performance advantage. I like dstm and it is promising but wait for further stability improvements and better sols performance.

I have same problem like others with crushing, before i have used dstms miner for a while but now i have problem with stability (OC and no-OC) and i have go back to ebwf. I have used rig with 8x1070 strix.

EWBF is still better I have to say. The short term gains were never worth it compared to the stability.

actually there is..
I do not know what is the reason.
there is no stability issue with gtx 1070 - all working smooth
and there is with 1080ti - miner crashes after 3-4 hours of work.however  with the same setting ewbf is working ok.
maybe there is some little bug which causes instability in really rare cases, but it is there..

Are you using 0.5.5?
