Good that my whole post got deleted  Roll Eyes

Writing it here again, then....

You would definitely get more ppl using your miner than EWBF's miner, if you reduced the fee to 1% or at least made it configurable with standard fee of 2%, but with configurable range of 1% up. I am not saying you should develop for free, but the fee has to be justified. Who wants to give you 2%, fine, who does not, he can then configure it to 1%, lets say.
Makes sense right ?

Otherwise, the Sol/s gain you get, using your miner over EWBF's miner + your fee of 2%(while EWBF's fee is configurable and can even be 0% with --fee 0) is just not justified. We gain sol/s, but we lose 2%(sometimes even more as reported elsewhere) on fees.

So, u want more ppl to use your miner? You want me to use it? Then think about what I just suggested.  Wink

I saw your other post but didn't notice it was deleted ..

Good luck getting the Dev to lower the fee, a few of us have asked in the past, the Dev is Greedy, he will call it some thing else but he is ... I not afraid to tell him or anyone either an have, I don't mind paying a fee, in fact I agree we should pay some thing... my whole point is like you said you get more if you give .... less if you don't even if it looks like you are .... so if some thing better comes a long most will drop using dstm's miner if the Dev does it right like EWBF's miner did.  

an sense EWBF's is no longer being updated, an i want full use of my NV GPU mining Zec, i have to use dstm's miner sense it is about the best one to use right now and kept updated but not that great .. again i don't mine the Fee, it's the greed I do mind an being told it's not greed when it is ....an if the updates for  EWBF's miner picked back up, i would use it again. an Ive been pushing dstm's and was one of them who got support added to Awesome miner ..

and Ive wondered how the fee works with this miner. is it so many seconds a hours or are we mining and that extra hash we seem to get Goes to the DEV .. i haven't seen much explained about the Fee on how the fee works ...an yea Claymroe and EWBF's let you adjust it or turn it off . I leave it on with those miner because i know I  can turn it off but I do wonder am i really getting extra hash with this miner or does it go to the DEV all the time ...

Does the recent Meltdown and Spectre OS patches affect the DSTM Miner's performance?
Has anybody done any before/after benchmarks?

From what, I read the recent Meltdown patch (KPTI) affects any programs that call the Kernel frequently such as netwoking, SSD disk access and CUDA memory copy operations from host to GPU.

How often does the DSTM Miner call the Kernel, anyway ?

I'm looking into this on both Operating-Systems. Not all OS-patches are finished currently... so yes, I'm aware of the of the increased systemcall time.
Does the dstm miner perform the Blake2b hash on the CPU and transfer the results to the GPU by calling the CUDA driver and the Kernel each time ?
If "yes" then it can be affected by the increased systemcall time due to the OS Meltdown patches.

As far I know dstm miner only mines ZEC and can't dual mine unless you use a program like Awesome miner . I don't think the Meltdown patch will affect it ... but CM eth dual miner possible could sense it can dual mine Blake2b coin types. Ofc i don't know shit lol .....I understand what you mean !!! Smiley .... that's just a example or answer to a problem that might happen that's not limited to one coin .  i just wanted to add to it ........

Also the gain using top hardware(1080ti) is very minimal(sometimes null and then you have to count the 2% fee) over EWBF's miner. Maybe you could improve that as well to attract more ppl with top hardware.

So, u want more ppl to use your miner? You want me to use it? Then think about what I just suggested.  Wink

Write your own miner, reduce fee to 1%, and then watch how others will say, 1% is too much, make it 0,5%, you will do that and people will say, disable the dev fee completely, since 0,5% is too much. It is not him who is greedy, it is you actually you and all other people, that ask for reducing fee.

Get 1% more for you means almost nothing, if you are not mining on 20+ 1080 Ti, but for him, it would meant a lot. Try do some math...

So all of you, stop whining, you won't get rich anyway even with 2% more. And stop being smartasses, to tell the developer what he should do with his miner,... if you really think you know better, make your own, or hire someone who will make one for you.

This one is overall fastest and most stable, still actively developed, I guess it is ok to be "more expensive"  Wink

NO actually i wouldn't and was one of those who pushed Claymore into adding the --nofee flag to his miners and I leave the fee on with CM's miners an don't use the flag ... so the DEV here is being Greedy ..  an sometimes you have to make a point, to get something done and if i could code like these guys can i would offer it free an ask for donations but wouldn't require it . so i won't  stop whining as you call it when i see  in justice being done to some extent an i don't want it free . I guess I'm what you call a Progressive who believes in helping everyone .

Justice, justice?! There is no right for mining, and there is no obligation to make software free or for reasonable price. It is his miner, he can set whatever dev fee he wants. And your justice, that should rather be called freedom, is that you don't have to use that miner if you do not agree with the "price".

do mean mine on nicehash with dstm's  ? .


stratum+tcp://equihash.usa.nicehash.com:3357

or for SSL connection:

stratum+ssl://equihash.usa.nicehash.com:33357

either port works.

as for nice hash bot i haven't used it  a while i can make more not using it but there used to be a way to add custom software miners ...

nop he want to can use nicehash legacy app with dtsm but for that it require some deep file modification & some much more coding, depend how much nicehash team was hard lock there app Wink
But best for him is to goo on https://github.com/nicehash/NiceHashMinerLegacy & open a new Issue & request Dstm to be add

Is there a way to get the device name from API? I can see the device name while accessing the miner with a web browser, but it is not included if I perform a API call.
What API?
What exports this API function?

I'm trying to access the API of the dstm miner and parse the information about hashrates etc.
My question is: is it possible to get the device name of each individual GPU from the dstm API?
As I said, the device name is shown in the web interface of the miner, but when performing a API request I only get the GPU ID and not the name.

I'll add pci-bus information and the device name in the next release.

You are awesome! Thank You!

I can't seem to find it - is there an intensity setting for this miner?

I have a machine mining with three 1080s that I need to use for some work several hours each day.
With EWBF I would turn the intensity down a bit and the machine was fully functional... then I'd turn it back up when done working.

With this miner, the machine is unusable so I have to shut it off completely for the hours I'm working.

Is there an adjustment I'm not finding?

There is no intensity settings, but it was already requested few times. Anyway, I'm working 8 hours per day on computer mining on 1060 6GB with DSTM, three full hd monitors connected and it is usable except the Microsoft Excel 2016. But for that one, you can turn off hardware acceleration and then it works fine. Of course, if you work in Photoshop or 3D Max, this might be problem.

This is exactly the point and you are completely wrong.
For him it shouldnt really matter as his miner would be used and is used by thousands if not millions of ppl. he is doing thousands of $$$$ every day and thats what he needs ? no. It was called "greed" and it is that. Simple as that.
Leaving 2% is fine, but it also should be adjustable. If someone wants to give 2% then fine, if not adjust it then to whatever. Even with --fee 0 he would be stil lgetting thousands of $$$ a day cuz not everyone disables/fiddles with fee and cuz of some ppl just want to pay him. So no, he wouldnt "banktrupt". But 2 % is just too much to justify the extra gain(if any) over EWBF's miner. Like I said, with my setup of 1080ti's its not making any noticable perfomance difference + i know theres 2% fee, which is sometimes even higher(use google to see)! Its just not worth using it. Maybe if I had 1070/ti's then maybe .....

If more ppl pushed on him he would make it variable. No pushing = no changes...

The dev is free to set whatever fee level he wants and we are just as equally free to not use the miner, or to say we feel the fee is too high relative to performance, reliability, etc. Really, what's got your panties all in a wad?
