How to get the miner auto start after it crash and window pops up a box with " zm is stop working "  ?

This is to prevent "... stopped working" window pop-up
https://www.raymond.cc/blog/disable-program-has-stopped-working-error-dialog-in-windows-server-2008/

After that the bat file would be

:here
zm ....................

goto :here

Normal windows software doesn't work on windows server, especially 2008.

No drivers or support for any pro hardware.

Open Solaris is a better choice.  It's very stable and supports anything out of the box.

I have a workstation for video editing w 2 Xeons and 4 GPUs running on opensolaris.

BeOS is decent too.  The fastest I've ever used.  Still insanely fast 22 years later on my raspberry pi.

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 OZ 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 ........
That does not make sense!
Mining ZEC requires calculating a lot of Blake2b hashes for the Equihash algorithm.

How to OC ?
MSI afterburner does not work

It does not start, it does not work completely, or it will not apply your boost to Core clocks?

If it does not apply only core clock, try to run Google Chrome along with DSTM miner and check if it works now.

So in Windows 10 this will keep it running?.   Perhaps dstm can add that to the compiled .exe so it won't fail overnight?  (I'll add it and check to see if it works)  thanks

use this script ( completly open source and free) by Acrefawn. It will take care of your rigs automatically, restart at set intervals or if errors happen. It's pretty great.
If you use it and it's helpful remember to support the dev after you tested it thoroughly.

Awesome this is one of the main troubles I face, and it is usually fixed with the old turn it off and on again. I'll test it out and see how it works Smiley

hi DSTM

please help me.

with reference to two rigs of mine that do over 3000 sols each.  

almost every morning when i wake up i notice no hashrate on pool monitor for these two rigs.  i then check miner and see  -  
connection closed by server   r 0
reconnecting


what do i do ?
i have done much troubleshooting with no luck.


regards



note:  i have other rigs under 3000sols on the same network that dont do this

do you mean difficulty should be mapped to a smaller range such that it's easier to read? Float is a datatype representing real numbers it's not related to the radix/base that's used for representation.

What I mean is that pools expect difficulty configuration as a number, so even I know where my performance sweet spot is - I cannot just paste it as a hint to the pool.
I am not sure if that is possible, but it would be appreciated.

Quote
- Current log makes little sense without further tools. (I would appreciate more details)
What details are you missing? And how is it related to tools you would not need otherwise?

The idea of logging change is to make it easier to spot problems. The log right now has the information you need, it is just clumped together.
For example I switched to mining pool hub and performance dropped 5-10% - I used python to split the information and found out they are seemingly randomly changing difficulty back to 0001....
I checked the shares and found out the coin switching is not nicely implemented by the pool.
Other card had performance problems due to fan not scaling (For some reason the fan speed was not scaled on temperature in 2D mode).
 - Here might be a good innovation. If you can read PerfCap Reason and accordingly to it would be better rather than temperature.
 - I suspect targeting a temperature will be a good workaround
Now I am trying to find sweet spots for Sol/W, because going as fast as possible is not always the best efficiency.

Quote
Anyway I am looking forward to new versions, but I am sticking with 0.5.7. Performance on 0.5.8 is worse for me CPU wise.
Now that's is a very useful information. If there are any regressions between the versions - pls report them - I can't fix them otherwise and they might appear in later versions too. How much did the cpu load increase for you?

Since you took the time to respond, I took the time to replicate my original problem.
Unfortunately I was not able to. I am now running at 0.5.8

How to OC ?
MSI afterburner does not work

Make sure you have OC enabled in 2D mode. Miner does not trigger rendering anything. I am on MSI Afterburner and it works.

connection closed by server   r 0
reconnecting
what do i do ?
i have done much troubleshooting with no luck.
note:  i have other rigs under 3000sols on the same network that dont do this

look for the connection it tries to open, perhaps it will help to know what is the miner connecting to. (My suspicion is that miner is trying to connect to something that is no longer responding)
In windows you can use install PSTools from sysinternals and use "Process Explorer" for convenience.
In linux netstat should be enough.

Mining ZEC requires calculating a lot of Blake2b hashes for the Equihash algorithm.

Correct me if I am wrong, but increasing lag between CPU and GPU would only increase the demand on memory on the GPU. The impact on average amount of solutions should not be impacted by it.
On a unrelated note - is it normal that the  miner takes so little GPU memory? (<500MB for me)
Don't count shares if you don't know their difficulty (value), count total Sol/s. I guess your pool show somewhere total hashrate of your workers, and that matters Wink

Soooo... if I have more hashpower am I getting more difficult shares or what? :S

Maybe (why not), but they will have higher value of course.

Try mining ZEC on Flypool, there is fixed difficulty, accurate hashrate reporting, nice graphs, so you can easily compare if your two cards mine more than just one. But you should let it run for at least 24h to get accurate average hashrate.

This based on luck. There is a guarantee you will find a share, but the amount of hashes it takes changes. Pools will report higher hash rate due to this. It is still ok to use pool hashrate.
Difficulty is used to balance workload. Higher difficulty will result in miner working in longer "cycles" which is beneficial to faster hardware.
Average solutions per second are the measurement of how your miner performs. Note that the reliance is always on the miner. That is why I am using pools as well.


2% fee on the miner and another % on the pool .. .cmon here..
Miner fee and Pool fee are unrelated as for the amounts it is 2% of my hashing power and 0.9% from the pool for my payment.

Hello guys!
Want to remind to all of you, that if somebody has any problems with stability of EWBF, DSTM, BMINER, CLAYMORE, CC miners or needs some extra control over your rigs please read carefully my message below.

I want to introduce you a script, which can solve most of your problems. It is a result of half a year hard work with my beta testers. Now it is clean of any bugs and ready to be introduced for the wide mining community.

1) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2071108.0
2) https://forum.z.cash/t/cmd-equihash-miner-autorun-autorestart-watchdog-for-ewbf-claymore-dstm/20640

It will definetely reduce your valuable time spent near your rigs, because this script will do all the work for you. Just start it and forget about your rigs, relax or do anything else. In case of any problem this script will restart your miner, or the rig, if necessary. It will notify you by Telegramm message about all problems and corrective actions taken. It is open source code (CMD/BAT, not an .exe or something like this), so anyone can check throug the code if needed.
Enjoy your life, let the script to monitor your rigs for you.

Hey guys i was switching back over to dstm to compare it vs bminer and i realized something odd.

For some reason it's slowing down my radeon cards mining and even my desktop?. claymore miner slows down from 49 down to 44~ and my desktop even feels laggy while using dstm miner.

When i was using Bminer this wouldn't happen and was wondering if anyone knew what may be the cause, my cpu is nowhere near overloaded so im genuinely curious.

Im using v 5.8 and im just preparing since there's a lot of mixes reviews about bminer and im not so sure about it.

Thanks

2% is a lot.. 0.05% is closer to reality for the few lines of code..

Hello all.

What happens when "contime" reset but uptime continue count?

Contime means time from last disconnect from pool server?

When appeared "error recv failed: 10054 " ? Due overclocking ?

I having exactly the same ZEC mining error "# recv failed: 10054" It disconnect every minute, Don't know what to do. Don't know why? Please help.
