Can you give example of batch file?

timeout 15
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
zm --server eu1-zcash.flypool.org --port 3333 --cuda_devices 0 1 2 3 4 --user t1JjQf4RUWSNxmEzsr2sbTJE34ghtAQ5ztE.gsmp106 --pass x --templimit 81 --log 2 --pec


you asked this?


Some of the options are wrong in this example.


To get a description of the available options just launch zm.exe without any arguments and you'll get this output:             
Code:
ZM 0.5.2, dstm's ZCASH Cuda Miner

Usage:
 zm --server hostname --port port_nr --user user_name
    [--pass password] [options]...

 Stratum:
    --server         Stratum server hostname
                     prefix hostname with 'ssl://' for encrypted
                     connections - e.g. ssl://mypool.com
    --port           Stratum server port number
    --user           Username / Workername
    --pass           Worker password

 Options:
    --help           Print this help
    --dev            Space separated list of cuda devices
    --list-devices   List available cuda devices
    --time           Enable output of timestamps

    --temp-target    In C - If set, enables temperature controller.
                     The performance of each GPU will be continuously
                     adjusted such that the temperature stays around
                     this value. It is recommended to set your fan speed
                     to 100% when using this setting.

    --telemetry      [=ip:port]. Starts telemetry server. Telemetry data
                     can be accessed using a web browser(http) or by json-rpc.
                     If no arguments are given the server listens on
                     127.0.0.1:2222 - Example: --telemetry=0.0.0.0:2222
                     Valid port range [1025-65535]
 Example:
    zm --server servername.com --port 1234 --user username


This is also described on the opening post of this thread.
However I'll write a readme and some example batch files to make it easier for windows users.

I read it. but until the file was created, the system did not start (after that everything worked!

Hey dstm testing the Win build now, very cool. So far so good, actually beating latest EWBF by a percent or so. Impressive.
The output seems pretty crude but I like it. I assume those + indicate shares? Gonna let it run over night and see if it's actually represents the same increase on the pool.
Running a 1080Ti and a 1080, getting avg. 750 and 575 Sol/s respectively with ~235W and ~180W power draw (Roughly 3,2 Sol/W on both cards).

Thanks for all the continued work, dstm.

I'm keen to get testing the new Windows version today and will post some results.

Early results after a few minutes mining Zencash on an MSI Duke GTX 1070, Power @ 75%, Core Clock +122, Memory Clock +512 shows:

Sol/W: 2.91 Avg 498.3 Sol/s


Compared to ewbf on the exact same overclock settings:
Sol/W: 2.75 Avg 479 Sol/s

So far so good on a single GPU setup (this is my main desktop PC). When running on 7x Asus DUAL OC GTX 1070s I get complete system crashes/reboots (no BSOD, just instant shut down) and very volatile power consumption.

Running zm on my desktop shows very smooth power consumption. CPU usage by the executable is about 2%.

I have another rig of 6x Gigabyte Windforce GTX 1070s I still need to test zm on and will report if it operates like the 7 card rig (unusable until I figure out why it crashes) or like the desktop, which so far is showing a 4% improvement over ewbf.

I'm sure there's room for some additional tweaking of overclock settings too.

Hi, my 1st post in the forum.
First of all thanks to dstm for this miner.
Tried the windows version to mine BitcoinZ (equihash algo) on pool.miningspeed.com but shares rejected.
Perhaps only works with Zec?
Just an FYI. Cheers...

dstm, Sorry for being persistent, but is there any way to use your miner with a proxy? EWBF, ccminer and, basically, any other miner I've used worked flawlessly with my HTTP proxy server.

Don't hesitate to ask Smiley

Could you please describe in more detail how you setup your proxy - I'll try to reproduce why it isn't working.
Sure. I'm using latest 3proxy, my current config looks like this

Has all internet access pass trough the proxy? i.e. is everything else blocked?

crude output:
just make your terminal window larger and output will be ordered, such that it doesn't break long lines

Yes the '+' are submitted shares.

I couldn't make a 6x 1080Ti rig to work on Zm

Total hashrate was hovering around 3000 sol/s. On EWBF I have around 4300 sol/s

So it looks like this is not working for ZenCash? I've got better performance than EWBF, but it seems the pool is not accepting the shares. Any insight?

It's fine, I meant it's just quite original. Crude was perhaps a bad word.

In any case, I would suggest changing the Sh/s to Sh/m as it is much easier to calculate using a minute as a base. Or give an switch option to change it.
Another suggestion is to have some confirmation in the console when starting the miner that the correct device is being used/selected, like EWBF does (lists all devices and marks in green the one in use, and red those not selected).

Third is not really a suggestion but an observation, quite high CPU usage on the miner that is using the 1080/1080Ti cards.
I started the miner on a single 1060 as well but the CPU usage isn't very high here.

So far so good!

Also, some output recommendations:

-Latency in ms

-Accepted shares/Rejected shares (and possibly %)

Zen should work, it's tested.

If you get rejected shares or some pool isn't working properly pls report the pool-url and the way you started zm such that I'm able to test it.

Nope, there are some basic service ports opened (i.e. 23, 80, 443 etc. + a couple of special ports, like 20017, which I'm using in a config I've posted earlier), but everything else is closed.
So if there's a need to connect to some exotic pool ports like 3333 etc., I have to individually re-route specific miners through the proxy.

zm.exe --server us.miningspeed.com --user zneRT7DDbLKq16dZwPdPYo5NkfEuFCBLt8n --pass x --port 3062

Hashing was fine, pool just wasn't accepting shares.

After I reset and changed pool to eu.miningspeed.com, I then got about 90% of shares rejected also. Seemed like 100% accepted on us.miningspeed.com, but they wouldn't show up on the pool website. The website is saying 0 shares.

Thanks!

What latency exactly?

Accepted/Rejected shares are accesibale accessible via the webui or json-rpc.

The first block of our pool (https://zpool.guru) is found with DSTM  Grin
I just have a test with you pool : with a 200 sol/s miner, no share, O, null.
I stop the test after few minutes.
In the same time, few minutes, with SuprNova, I get a lot od shares.
Why I get 0 share with your pool, smallest than suprnova ?

I update you on the official post : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2262047.msg23207497.0
