Windows 0.5.2 alpha

This is an alpha, so it might contain bugs, pls report them if you hit any.
Launch options are described on the OP, or simply run zm.exe without any arguments to get a description.
If you get an error about missing VCRUNTIME140.dll you need to install the 'Visual C++ Redistributable for visual studio 2015'

Big thx to santan for providing access to a windows system.
add plz info about installation Visual C++ Redistributable for visual studio 2015 on first page.

Well I've been testing this today, and like many others I like it, certainly faster than EWBF - nice work DSTM - Thanks!

Only one rig is playing up, saying 'Application zm.exe has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware' ... I'll tweak Afterburner and see what happens.

I don't go for the fastest settings with full-on power, but settings that give a good bang per watt.

ZOTAC 1080ti 11gb 4-card Rig:
63% Power
+240 Core Clock
-229 Memory Clock
70% Fans
= Average 2600 sols @ 702w at the wall

ZOTAC 1070 8gb Mini 5-card Rig:
Power: 64%
Core Clock: +225
Memory Clock: -220
55% Fans
= Average 2065 sols @ 568w at the wall

Happy to have ditched EWBF for a faster miner with an active developer  Wink

Good job for this Windows version.
But, sorry to write that : I don't care about it ! I'm a Linux user.
Any project DSTM, for the next Linux version ?

Hey, thanks for the good work.

Actually testing it on 2 6x EVGA 1070 rigs. OC settings : PL -65% | Core +120 | Mem +500 | AVG 4.3 sol/W.

So far, the hashrate is improved by 4% compared to EWBF.

Quote
+ Does the temp controller overtake AB fan control, as I understand when OP says "It is recommended to set your fan speed to 100% when using this setting.", or am I totally wrong ? So far, it does not, and fans just run at max speed. I definitely don't want to use 100% fans, they usually run at 45% max, and I'm pretty fine with that.

No it doesn't. ZM's temperature controller is a proper PID-controller - it measures the temperature and adjust the performance continuously. Fans on the GPU use also some kind of controller. So you'll get 2 controlling loops with feedback. So what might happen is: zm lowers the performance -> fan gets slower -> temp rises again -> zm lowers the performance even more -> fan gets slower again .... and so on - something like this or something in between might happen. You don't have to set the fan speed to 100% however it should be set to something constant to avoid 2 controlling loops.

Quote
+ Is there a way to use different colors to separate displayed information ?

Currently not. What information is hard to read currently / should be highlighted?

Quote
+ Maybe worth implementing an auto-restart function, as during a 1h network maintenance, I found my rigs had exited the program. Short connection shortage restart as soon as it re-connects, but longer ones seem to just exit.

Currently zm retries for about 10min and gives up. This is hardcoded. It exits after 10min such that you'll get notified if you're using notifications on process exit.

Did you overclock your GPUs? No there is no log option, however zm checks all calls and prints an error message if something goes wrong.

It's stated on the OP.

Compatible with devices having Compute Capability 5.0 and greater i.e. it should run fine on Maxwell/Pascal GPUs.

--api needed

ZM supports telemetry via an web interface or by json-rpc, check the '--telemetry' option.

Hey guys , first review and problems:

First of all miner is better and more effective by 2-3 % than EWBF. I've been running it on several machines , got improved hashrate  (GTX 1060  3gb from 280 ~ to 300 ~ , GTX 1070 from 470 to 490 , GTX 1080 from 540 to 550 , gtx 1080 ti from 720 - 740  , all vary bettwen + - 1-5 sol/s)
Machines are working fine with ETHcontrol , or anykind that has some watchdog that either restarts miner or knows what to do. But so far they are running stable.


Problem :

I got one rig with 7 cards and it seems that it cannot work good with dstm miner. It has 5x 1070 , 2x 1060 3g


First of all , to run it properly I had to lower power limit ALOT on all cards

Standart settings at afterburner:  80 pl / +150 core / +540 memory  -----------> at this point miner and Ethcontrol comes in some loop that whenever miner is started it's always killed and restarted , because it hangs out too much time or shows 0 sol/s for cards (e.g. miner takes a lot of time to start and doesnt start at all)

Settings to start: 65 pl / +150 core / + 540 memory -----------> miner starts but this is what happens , after "1round of hashing good" it starts hashing super pooorly. I dont know what should be the case , all my rigs are identical , just this is the only one with more than 6 cards. All have same windows / drivers etc etc etc . CPU seems to be stuck at 100% at rig 1 though when I run ZM miner , probably some problems with more than 6 cards rig on win 10 ?


edit: I've tried a lot of different settings but in vain. Problems seems to be that  POWER for cards makes crazy jumps (35-80 % PL for example) . Only time it worked fine for arround 5 mins , was because power limit somehow settled down at exactly 80 % (what was set) and it was running okey. Making any changes to OC settings results in various jumps in power and thus cards start to hashing super poorly. This is the only thing i've discovered.

Thx for the report, this is very helpful.

I'm currently heavier on CPU load.
It looks like your CPU is to slow to provide enough work for the GPUs. CPU load increases with the total solution rate of your system - so this is most likely why your 7card rig is having troubles since it requires more cpu time. What CPU are you on?

It's intel 1151 , G3930  , it's not impressive but it's not on the downside of any processors.

edit. I got such processor on all my machines , and also planning to add up to total of 8 cards on each of them soon , so this might be huge problem to run ur miner @ them

Try using older versions of drivers, in Linux that had a huge impact on CPU usage.


--api needed
API is present, see my older conversation with dstm on how to read it.

Yes ofc, there were couple request I'll implement in my next version, currently I'm working on CPU usage reduction which both OS will benefit from.

Gave me 100 more sols on 6 x 1070 FE with same overclock. Same temp, +80, +100, +500  ~2800+/sols for Zencash
May try PL 90, if temp hold under 70
Nice job, dstm!

Yep, cool, I'll give it a try.

Maybe 1 colour for the ============ line could be easier to read.

I personally don't use it, maybe an opportunity to be a bit less of a lazy fuck, and get things sorted. But I admit that knowing EWBF's reconnecting no matter what makes me a bit more relax. Don't sweat it, we'll manage. You obviously have enough bread on your plate, at the moment...

HUGE thanks to you, for your work, your fast and systematic answers, good support is always much appreciated. More than happy to share my 2%. Hope it makes your work worth it.

How does it crash? Does the system freeze?                                                                                     
Is anybody else having stability issues?

Sometimes the system just instantly shuts down, no warning or error/BSOD.
Other times it seems the primary graphics card fails - nothing comes out of display and I need to press the power button/alt-f4 as windows is still running, then only when the Windows 10 shutting down screen comes on do I actually see anything appearing on the screen. This is the most common thing.


However, I turned the overclock settings even further down and I think I have found a stable point. I think there may be one graphics card in the rig which is a little less stable than the rest, as my 6x Gigabyte Windforce 1070s are running very smooth at 2938Sol/sec (around 490Sol/sec per card) while the 7x ASUS Dual OC 1070s are running at 3224Sol/sec (around 460Sol/sec per card) at about 3.41W/Sol.


The MSI Duke in my desktop delivers a very consistent 500Sol/sec, so between my 14 cards I am at 6662Sol/sec averaging just over 475Sol/sec per card.


All in all, very happy with how the miner is working. Even though the ASUS cards are not getting quite the same results, they're still performing better than they did with ewbf and at considerably lower W/Sol.

I have a "load-problem" under ubuntu 14.04 with 4 Nvidia Cards on CUDA9:
(used latest 0.52 Version)

2121 root      20   0 51,978g 396036 351052 S 23,4  9,8   0:56.68 ./zm --server .....

compared with the older ewbf-miner 23,4% nearly continous load on a quad-cpu is huge.
I costs nearly 8 Watts extra energy. Can you please check, why the cpu-usage is so high ?

my used commandline:

./zm --server luckpool.org --port 3057 --user xxx.yyy --pass x --time

Tested with --api and without --time i have the same results with the cpu-load

ZOTAC 1070 8gb Mini 5-card Rig:
Power: 64%
Core Clock: +225
Memory Clock: -220

Interesting that you are turning DOWN your memory clock. I see better results when I increase it it.

So you're getting around 413Sol per card at about 3.64Sol/W? Pretty sure you could improve that, but I don't know your electricity costs.

Here's my 7 card Asus DUAL OC GTX 1070 rig with
power at 90%,
voltage at +30,
core clock +96 and
memory +480:



I think that primary graphics card is getting a little unstable with overclocking the core. My other cards on that rig seem fine overclocked to +120.


My 6x Gigabyte Windforce GTX 1070s allow even greater overclocking but I still need to find a better Sol/W point.
They have:
power at 88%
voltage at +35%
Core clock at +144
Memory at +610

For some reason the telemetry won't load in the browser right now, but watching it on the screen I am at 2964Sol/sec with 3.14Sol/sec, averaging 494Sol/sec per card.
