wait for  windows version too.
i check it
zcash - 280sol on GTX 1060 3Gb, same as in another miner.
with overclock - 290sol

I dont understand miners used windows for mining.
Linux is better os for any good miner soft and it's stable os. Windows is for novices (windoze-only nicehash etc)

I run both and I had more crash (well I had zero with Windows 10) with Linux.
Both have cons and pros.
That "noob" OS thing is just silly IMO.

Btw, nicehash doesnt work very well with your miner. (extranounce support is missing)

Thx for the numbers, Sol/W looks pretty good.                                                                                  

Dev fee is exactly 2%. If you can't reproduce this number on your pool after running it long enough you should ask your pool why you're missing 3% - 3% are significant. This is why I'm calculating an average, it's there so that you can check the pool numbers.

I'll add extranounce support in the next version.
API will be there in one of the next releases.

Hello @dstm

I really like your miner, it's really stable compared with EBWF's, and when it does crash (my hardware issue), it does so softly, allowing me to do a restart of the system. With EBWF's I couldn't kill it not even with -9. I had to power cycle the hardware.
However I do have the following issues:
- When using more than 10 GPUs the CPU is overloaded.
  * if it helps I can live with a longer time between refreshes, say 15 - 30 seconds
  * when that happens most of the share get rejected as invalid, see pool screenshot
  * do you think you can improve the CPU load performance, if not do you have any suggestion on what upgrade I should focus on? Cores, speed?
      + by my calculations I would need to use an i5 or i7 to be able to scale to 19 GPUs
- an API would be immensely appreciated
 * No more having to stay logged in to monitor when one GPU died (and I could track down which one is the culprit)
 * Get better statistics for optimization purposes.

Hardware:
- Asus B250 Mining Expert
- 10 x GTX 1070
- Intel Celeron G3900
- 2 GB DDR4 2133
- nvdia-smi -pl 90

On the left 12 x GTX 1070 GPUs, on the right 10 x GTX 1070 GPUs.

Hi zzz.to.the.moon thx for reporting, this is really welcome since it speedups development.

When using more than 10 GPUs the CPU is overloaded.
Judging from you htop output: the miner is using about 38% cpu on your system, most of your cpu load is on the kernel side, it's most likely caused by the drivers. If some of your GPUs are crashing you might get unpredictable behavior.

This happens most likely because the shares arrive the pool too late because of the cpu load issues you're having.

I'm constantly improving CPU and GPU side, however it's pretty well optimized now.                                            
A high single-core performance is not required, the miner is written such that it scales well with the amount of available cores.

This is what I'm getting on a 10GPU system (6*1070 + 4*1080Ti) with an i3-7300T (a 35W CPU).
Code:
1  [||||||||||                                      18.2%]   Tasks: 112, 279 thr; 2 running
2  [||||||||||                                      16.6%]   Load average: 0.80 0.57 0.27
3  [||||||||||||||||||||||||||||                    51.0%]   Uptime: 00:53:42
4  [|||||||||                                       15.3%]

It depends on the speed of your GPUs - the overall speed of all GPUs on your system determine the CPU load. Judging from the htop results I'm getting on an i3-7300T an i3 should be able to drive 19GPUs, however I'm not sure if there are differences in the number of PCIE-lanes between the CPUs.

I've implemented the set_extranonce rpc. Its tested and works properly. I'm planning do some more changes before uploading a new version. If somebody needs extranonce support now, I'll upload a separate version.

Thanks!

Have you tried overclocking your 1070s higher?  I also recommend the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. I was able to overclock dual 1080 ti's on my gaming rig and it mines pretty good.  I also have it connected to a liquid cooling system so it stays cool.

Hmm, is there some problem on 0.4.5 in reconnecting back to pool.

Dont know has internet gone down on that or was pool playing somthing. But it doesn't reconnect back until miner is closed and restarted. (internet was working when pressed ctrl+c to stop miner)

All of my nodes have been doing like this, just flooding terminal on that connection closed at wery fast pace:

Flypool seems to have huge performance issues currently.
The miner should reconnect as soon as flypools network is reachable again.
I'll check if there is something that needs improvement in this situations.

I'll check this part again. It seems to be unlikely that you've restarted all your nodes right after flypools network was up again.

wait for  windows version too.

I dont understand miners used windows for mining.
Linux is better os for any good miner soft and it's stable os. Windows is for novices (windoze-only nicehash etc)


such a clueless comment. Linux fanboy ?

mmm, nope. I own both and I have less problems with Windows. You also have plenty of advantages like tons of utilities (eg:After Burner), more mining software and of course, a lot more support. It is
also a lot faster and easier to diagnose problems IMO.

I am not a Widows fanbiy , all my servers (non mining related) are on centOS.
