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

Quote
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 ?


Most people are using zm on a natted network I guess, so there should be no general issue.
TCP keepalive is set to 50s in zm so a timeout of 360s isn't an issue.
What OS are you on?
What pool are you using?

Tried it on my gaming box today - single 1080ti.

 725ish sol/s vs EWBF at 760ish with the same settings.

 Might try it on one of my boxes with 1070 and 1080 cards later today, but so far I'm not seeing any reason to switch.

 I do prefer the "don't use dark colors on a black background" aspect of the interface - I HATE the default color choices Claymore and EWBF use on their miner programs that make them hard to read on a lot of my monitors.


I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

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

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?

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


The argument about ports is valid, it might be an issues for people with several 10000GPUs on nat-networks. However I guess they would use a proxy anyway.

It doesn't put more stress on the network, since there is roughly the same amount of data (depending on how the pool adjusts difficulty) going through the network, zm's bandwidth requirements are very low. It also doesn't put more stress on nat-routers, since they have to rewrite the same amount of data.

Pool side: right it puts more stress on pools since they have to manage more clients.

In general, if there are good arguments for an improvement/change, I'll think about them ofc, so this kind of discussions are welcome.

I'm getting about 5 per cent or so extra on dstm's miner, so all looking good so far! Smiley

To get more mainstream appeal to ewbf, you could look at things that make the screen 'look nice'. So for example, adding some colours, showing when you get an accepted or rejected shares, that kind of thing.

I know it shouldn't be important, but it does help having all this info readily available on the miner screen.

But great work, it gets the extra sols and that's the main thing for me! I only wish I knew how to do something like this!

Hello, currently testing your miner without telemetry.
Hope it will reconnect automatically after losing connection from pool.
Will leave it like this for a period of time.
Also would like to ask you, I'm using 384 and 385 drivers.
Is there any recommended driver to improve hashrate?
Can I use 388?
cheers

@dstm: First of all thanks for your hard work.

Secondly, your miner started erroring out after a few hours please see below. Any ideas?


Thx for reporting, this is a bug - will be fixed in next release.
Damn, it's getting worse and I'm not sure why. Its crashing like every 2 hours... Once it crashed the whole system starts lagging like there is no tomorrow. Does this happen with the linux version as well?

Is it crashing or do you get an recv error?

I get the recv error, zm does not exit just keeps running like there is no tomorrow. I assume after a while there is memory overflow or something and windows decides to die. It will pose a problem when I'm not home.


Hi @dstm , i just wanted to say that indeed your miner performs better that ewbf on a Win10 system of 2 GTX 980 Ti , but unfortunately i got the same error as this guy after approx 4 hours of BTCZ mining.
I didnt notice my CPU usage , but i was mining with XMRig simultaneously .
My system is overclocked on a custom water loop , CPU is an i7 5820K OCed @4,3 and both 980TI's are also OCed by MSI Afterburner at +135Core/+100Mem ( 85% TDP ) giving me a total of 930Sol/s ( approx 460 each ) with your fantastic miner Smiley .

The cards are EVGA GTX 980Ti Supeclocked , which means that they are also OCed by default compared to other GTX980Ti's

If TDP is at 110% i am getting a solid 1000-1020 Sol/s from both .

But since it crushed i was forced to go back to EWBF which -right now- gives me with the same settings a total of  :

Temp: GPU0: 73C GPU1: 71C
GPU0: 453 Sol/s GPU1: 445 Sol/s
Total speed: 898 Sol/s

Just for referrence, EWBF was maxing out at approx 960 Sol/s ( 110% TDP ) , +135Core/350Mem

I believe that we would all be grateful if you fix the problems mentioned by myself and the rest ppl , since you indeed have built a better Cuda Miner!!!
Congrats again!

375.66, 384.90, 387.12 perform equal on linux.
I had no time to test driver performance on windows yet.

Checksums are for the executable itself since e.g. pools might repackage zm.

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,
any news on 0.5.3 ?
would also like to use your miner but get quite often this reconn.. error

New Version 0.5.3
cpu: reduce cpu load
con: fix recon loop
con: network latency measurement
ui:  add accepted/rejected shares ratio
ui:  add network latency
ui:  add information about selected devices

I'm uploading this one earlier than planned since it contains two major improvements - slightly reduced cpu load and a fix for recon - thus it doesn't contain everything you requested/suggested yet.

I've added new stats to the terminal ui. There is more information for share transmission now - it looks now like this:
Code:
Sh: <shares per minute> <ratio accepted/rejected shares> <network latency in ms>

Thanks for a nice miner, I confirm the same 5% performance increase on 1060 as others have reported.
What are the plus signs in the output of the miner? Do they represent submitted shares?
Can we have the amount of submitted shares in the miner window as well, not just in the terminal?

It's the amount of found shares during the last round.

What's the miner window for you and what's the terminal? Looks like a typo Smiley
There are a lot numbers now Smiley I've added accepted/rejected ratio of shares.

thanks dstm for this new version 0.5.3 - no recon error so far !
nice that you added --time flag
would it be possible to add also a running time info in the webinterface and maybe even manufacture of each card like other miners like ccminer do ?

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/171026/9tonmy5x.jpg

Can someone explain (see screenshot) why my EVGA Cards show so different values for sols/w and watts than my Zotac Cards ?
They all running on 55% TDP and eg these 1070s are on nearly same results.
It seems to me that all my EVGAs are on wrong numbers cause even a powermeter displays values like the zotacs.

Thanks, I have figured it out now. Trying the latest version on a test rig. The readme file that came with it is comprehensive.
There is no intensity parameter or anything else that we can adjust ourselves for fine tuning? Not that it would be required, the windows interface is not lagging or anything like that.

Thank you for nice miner.

Is there any monitoring program for multiple rigs which is supporting your miner, like this one https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1448855.0

Any plans to add log file?

What kind of efficiency are people getting with this miner and 1080ti's?

I'm typically getting 3.6-3.8 sols per Watt with EWBF.

Hi broth...

I'm just running ur new version, I'm so far is amazing...

I got in shot when I saw the statics from my cards
I tested it with a gf970 and gf 1050ti

the increase in the 970s compare with the ewbf algo was of maybe 5% to 7% overclocking the cards
EWBF=290 sol/s    ZM 300 up to 310 sol/s

but the best performance was get it on the 1050ti with a increase of a 15% to 20% superclocking it compared with the ewbf algo.

EWBF =180 sol/s     ZM 200 up to 210sol/s


and the best part was getting the same watts consumption.

well done broth
