how can you run 14 GTX cards with Windows 10 ?

I'm not, I'm running 14 rigs x5 cards each.


Holy fuckin shit.. really?  wow.  lol.. sorry.  Smiley

Hi.

Tried out your miner. It is, in fact, about 10% faster than EWBF. However, it has a nasty bug that forced me to go back to EWBF.

I mine ZEC on nanopool, recently they've had some service disruptions. So, if pool drops connection, EWBF simply tries to reconnect and succeeds finally, while dstm's ZM miner goes into "0 connection closed by server - reconnecting..." infinite loop, scrolling text very fast and never actually resumes mining.

Using Linux version under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Thanks!

Thx for reporting, this is a know bug, NameTaken had similar issues.
It will be fixed in the next release - this path is unlikely to hit, zm 0.5.2 should reconnect properly in almost all cases.
Woke up today to find all my rigs had stopped working due to this.

Sry for this, I'll release 0.5.3 earlier than planed due to this - however it won't contain all the requested adjustments. I'm expecting to release it tomorrow.

Hi dstm's developer,

I found a "bug", if telemetry fails at boot, for example when a power lose / power restore situation occurs, the miner won't start. System reboots on power fails, and miner start on boot, but for the router is not started yet...

Could you fix this?
Thank you.



I'm not sure I understand it correctly - could you pls explain this a bit more.

I think what he means is that when telemetry fails to start due to whatever reason, miner won't start either. I noticed that as well, for me though it wasn't a problem.

Right, zm exits if it can't bind the telemetry server to a socket. I designed it this way to make sure your telemetry settings are correct before it starts mining.

What proxies do you guys use (if any)? Not really fan of connection per card architecture, forgive me dstm.

Just tried it on 4x1060
The rig is running 24/7 ethereum with +500mem, but pretty quickly dies with dstm...
The problem is it doesn't die gracefully...

That's the purpose of this thread, if there is anything that needs improvement or is more usable for you this is the right place to ask.

I’m not quite familiar with the technicalities of mining algorithms, but what is advantage/disadvantage of connection per card architecture vs otherwise? Could this be the reason for increased cpu usage?

I don't see much improvement, i already get this speed with EWBF

Update, I see improvement, hope to be stable also.

Suggestions :

 - telemetry, i would like to see the uptime, info about pool ( connected/disconnected )
 - I think you can get more power from 1080 TI Smiley

Thanks

More pool info is needed, basically some more verbose info about it. Would be great.

Nice miner, switched over from EWBF on my 7 x 1080 Ti rig and 1 x 1080 Ti desktop. Went from 5275 sol/s to 5375 sol/s with less power consumption (2.75 sol/W to 2.85 sol/W). I also like the web view with averages rather than just snapshot of current status. More helpful to see longer term results for comparison on browser, I can always look at current speeds at miner window.

Curiously my overclocked cards draw less power now on same power target. I don't really mind since they now output more sols on less wattage, but I'd rather push them even harder with more power if possible. Is there a specific reason to limit power consumption or is it just due to software architecture?

Anyway well done dstm and looking forward to further improvements!

Hi dstm,

first of all, nice miner. It works quite good but I have some troubles with my setup.

It seems like the CPU is bottlenecking the miner.

I've just upgraded from 6 1080 ti to 6 1080 ti + 3 1070 single board setup, so a total of 9 cards on one board.
With 6 I've noticed a 2-5% + over EWBF.
With 9 cards on the other hand, the sols drop way behind EWBF ( -900-1000 sols ).
I've noticed, that my little Intel Celeron G3900 is always maxed out, so I'm sure that this is the cause of this issue.

Is there an improvement planned?

In last version the NAT changes are not really works.
i got all few minutes lost connections in and endless loop.

my regulary NAT timeout ist 360 or 600 seconds - that is enough for
a router.

Can you please check your keepalive (tcp based!) coding,
and verify that the miner is working with general settings on natted router ?

Let me try to educate Cheesy Say you have 20 rigs with 5 cards each. 100 cards. With ewbf or other miners, it would use 20 connections since there is one per rig. Now, with dstm miner 100 cards = 100 connections. Only 5 times more, right? Now imagine 10 guys with 100 cards = 1000 cards = 1000 connections to pool server. Pool servers could detect this as attack and start dropping or throttling connections... Also, there is only 64k ports and server can take around 60k connections per second (in theory).

Thats why I am not fan of this approach (not meaning to be mean or discourage dstm, again sorry man), because it stresses network more, and pool servers too. That is one of the reason some big miners use proxy, to decrease network infrastructure and pool server load.

Someone correct me if this is BS, but with years in sysadmin and networking, it should be legit Wink

Right, you're cpu bound.
I've reduced the cpu load slightly (about 8-10 %), it's under testing currently.
