as any one compare that to ewbf?
have no crashes on ewb. but on this miner likes to crash for no reason

This is due to overclocking - you have to readjust it slightly.

with reference to 12 GPU rigs:

i have noticed using DSTM on my 12 gpu rigs that GPU number 7 and 11 are on noticeably wamer than the others by 5-10degrees.

 I FIND THIS REALLY STRANGE.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

This is nothing unusual, the temperature might differ even if you're using the same vendor/model. You could also check the GPU-utilization like it's reported by 'nvidia-smi' to make sure there are not software issues.

hello @dstm can you explain way zm is stay connected 100% of time to > XXXXX.ip-94-23-20.eu < first part of address i was remove ... anyone who use dstm it can see it in network activitie ...

if is a way to get your fee next question is way it stay 100% connected ?!?!?! & is not use only when fee it need to be take see how claymore done it !

cheers

ZM uses an additional connection (in addition to your pool-connection) to submit the dev-shares. For this zm uses currently one of the flypool servers (eu1-zcash.flypool.org, us1-zcash.flypool.org, asia1-zcash.flypool.org). ZM does not establish any connections to private servers and uses only public pool servers to submit the dev-shares. This is especially important since using connections to private servers allows the mining software to track/collect data about it's users - it would also allow the mining software to 'steal' shares which solve whole blocks.

Well getting dev-share i get it. From tracing that extra ip what is use i already seen is part from public pool (www.ipaddress.com tools, a perfect place to find good info) & that was reason way i use your apps & not use bminer! what it use some strange ip, plus it use 2 extra NOT only 1 ...

But back to my initial point way miner it need to stay connect always? & it not use same technique like claymore use in his miner app aka: => dev share time => it connect to pool => it done what it need to be done => it disconnect letting run on initial pool, what it make to be very transparent & fine

about dev fee i undested perfectly developing it require something in return for any dev time, i will not goo on road if is big fee or small ... but make it transparent Smiley

cheers



I'm not aware how other mining software implements the developer fee however zm uses very fine grained periods this is why the connection is always established.

DSTM, any updates soon ?

I skipped 0.5.8 because nothing good for me and i'm  waiting new version with something new in performance level.

I'm currently focusing on some restructuring and failover pool support.

Well my exp here is
With 1080, im getting 565-570 Sols, on EWBF
With DSTM, about 550sols, - 2% fee = 540 sol = nah not gonna use DSTM

With my 1080Ti rigs, I see some slight improvement over EWBF, but If I take 2% fee into consideration, then Im at the same speed as with EWBF.


So....using DSTM Im not getting anything extra, in fact i would be losing $$.

ANd then, if it starts to crash, I have to redo my OC? and lower it = less Sols = even less$? Cheesy

Nah thanks. Kiss

Should we expect a slight increase in productivity due to restructuring? or reduce CPU load?

Could you look at CUDA 9.0, maybe it will be possible to slightly increase the performance?

Are there any ways to optimize for 1080 and 1080 Ti ?
Thank you very much for your work.

This is due to overclocking - you have to readjust it slightly.

I'd 100% agree with that.  Thankfully it doesn't crash/freeze the PC unlike other software I've used.  It just crashes the miner and kills it.  Much better solution IMO, and easier to restart it if needed.  Slight down clock does the trick.

I've had better luck with higher clocks (sometimes drastic) with dstm.  Course every Rig, PC and Software is different with each configuration slightly.  Just to see if there was a major difference again, I tried the EWBF with the --fee 0 option on one of my 1060's.  I was getting 305-308 sols average.  DSTM same settings 322 sols average.  So with a 6.5 dev fee I'm getting 8-11 more sols during mining.  Not much but quicker but still in the positive column to the tune of a few extra bucks a month (given the markets current drop in price).

Well, my GTX 1080 that is in my daily rig is watercooled. Doing 2000Mhz with 0.9v(85% TDP that would be), at max 37C. Efficiency over 4sol/w... I tried 2200MHz, which my card can do ez, but not getting more sols to be honest...

Thats nice!  I know my 1080TI can hit upwards of 800Sol around 1850-1900Mhz (it moves around) at 90% TDP if the temp is sub 50C.  Yeah my efficiency rides around 3.3-3.4 with the card on average.  Still good in my book.  Way better than when i started at only 680 Sols @ 100% TDP Smiley  It ends up being more efficient than my 1060's I got but least I topped out what my 2 small rigs can handle for cards and temp.  

Maybe I should look back into water cooling again.  Use to do it ages ago(14+ years), maybe its time to investigate it again.

One more problem, miner reduces hash rates until almost zero but does not automatically reload or adjust accordingly as pool switches coin.  Not sure how to explain it. What can I do to resolve this. It only happens with DSTM and if I'm asleep it remains low for hours until I reload  manually.
Also some gpus drop to a far lower intensity than others but do not recover.
Happens on nicehash and miningpoolhub so I'm convinced it's the miner.
I'm fine with paying dev fees as long as I have good product support..

How do you get 800+ @1900MHz, what card and what OC settings, can you share?

I am able to hit 790-805 @2015Mhz (270W)

That was with +200 or +230 Core +500 Mem, 100% TDP.  But the card had to be cool, sub 50C for it to get to that high.  It was fluxatuing +1900Mhz, sorry on that one.  Thought I grabbed a screen shot but looks like I didn't.  I'd have to double check tonight if I can get it that low temp again.  I thought it was crazy too when I looked at it but hey I'd take it, if the card could keep cool.  I personally don't run it there but was having fun playing around with it just recently.

I'm guessing only reason it clocks that high with the boost is due to the lower temps.  If I messed with the frequency curve in MSI Afterburner I'm sure it could be tweaked a little more.

well on my 1080ti's i can get 3.4-3.6sol/w. my cards are hot tho, up to 70C. Im getting about 685-695 sols with 80% tdp. If they were running at <50C, I bet you can get close to 4sol/w

Solo my card ran at 58-60C, though with the other card in the rig it sits at 64C with the 90% TDP. If I stuck my PC in the garage right now I'm sure I'd get fantastic temps since its about -10C or so out.

Side note: if you want to get rid of the developer fee, then take a look at this tutorial: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2773166.0

Happy mining.

Just curious, do you think the developers don't deserve to get paid or do you think the fee is to high?
I guess you could use the --nofee option as provided but it's my understanding the software slows down.

Anyway, I think these guys deserve to get paid for their work, I know I could not create these programs and because they make me money I am ok with it.

Do you think a pay once model would be better?  Apologies if this is not a correct topic for this thread.

Some clarification due to recent fee debate.

This is ofc something I was thinking about - speaking to my colleagues/friends, so called 'consultants' etc. Most of them suggest me to increase it especially on performance improvements. To make it short: I won't change it.

Claymore's Zcash mining software was stated a couple of times - the information wasn't always accurate so that's what Claymore states on his page:
"...current developer fee is 2% if you use secure SSL/TLS connection to mining pool ...If you use unsecure connection to mining pool, current developer fee is 2.5% ... If you don't agree with the dev fee - don't use this miner, or use "-nofee" option."
"-nofee   set "1" to cancel my developer fee at all. In this mode some recent optimizations are disabled so mining speed will be slower by about 5%."

I'm not sure if the statements about zm's accuracy were given by intention or by uncertainty - however it's important to me to clarify this: All numbers reported by zm including the developer fee are exact.

Keep up Smiley I believe lot's of us including me is bit jealous seeing that numbers you make Smiley We are just people. IDK what i would do being in your place, really...

Just dont abandon software and make it superior, there is some space t improve functionality/stability, and don't loose connection with us, users here.

BR

@dstm - could you please include Manufacturer info of the card, could be only in JSON, if you have mixed rig's it is pretty handy!

I tried my new 10x ASUS STRIX 1080ti OC cards today with 0.58 and got wonderful 740-760 Sol/s at 80% TDP@temperature 48-53 degrees celsius with each card Smiley Looking forward for 1080ti optimization!
