It seems cpu is much better on 5.3 but still my load average goes very high
12x1060
cpu :   Intel Core i5-6400


EWBF load average :
Code:
$cat /proc/loadavg
0.85 0.93 0.99 2/617 25347


dstm 5.3 Load Average:
Code:
$ cat /proc/loadavg
3.83 3.44 3.33 1/547 23514




CPU load looks high for an i5-6400. Could you pls paste the output of top sorted by cpu load?

Any plan to support equihash-192,7? (ZER)

I had some request to support different equihash variants. Currently I'm focusing on requests and general improvements (for 200,9) - so not sure about it.

When I run dstm those kworkers cpu usage goes high, with other miners they r normal.

Edit:

Fixed load average by raising power limit.

Guys, sorry for asking it, but could you tell me please what do those numbers mean: "192,7", "200,9"? Don't get it Sad

Not sure, but I think it the version numbers of some equihash variants.
All are variants of the same "father branch" from master equihash project and some coin is based on one of them and some other coins on some other of them.

I'm not sure why, but I'm not seeing the increase in performance that everyone else is with this miner.

My rig is 2x1080 (non-Ti), 2x1070, 2x1060.  Whattomine.com says this should be about 2450 sol/s.

zm = 2465 sol/s
ewbf = 2455 sol/s

That's less than a 1% difference and within a margin of error.  With the 2% fee on top of the zm miner, it totally isn't worth it.

BTW, I CANNOT overclock at all, the rig crashes even with the slightest amount of overclock on ANY of the cards, so that isn't an option.

Any ideas or is this just typical?

Have a look at nvOC easy-to-use Linux Nvidia Mining OS

I'm getting 300 sols with 1060
and 470 sols with 1070

Actually I am using Linux.  I'm not using that particular one, but I am using Ubuntu 16.04.

I was using ubuntu 16.04 untill I saw nvOC.
Its also based on 16.04, with so many more stuff for mining.

Yeah, the idea is nice, but I don't care too much for Unity and there are a lot of unnecessary services running in the background.  Needs a cleanup as it looks to be a bit of a mess right now with all the settings and options all over the place.

Exactly, nvOC is cleaned up and tailored for mining.
Have a look, I'm sure you will like it, You can install it on flash drive and give it a test drive

I tried out nvOC, but I was still getting the same speeds as my own custom Ubuntu distro.  I think I will just stick with my distro for now.

This still begs the question, Is what I am getting typical?  I'm not even seeing a 2% increase, actually less than 1% with ZM miner over EWBF's miner.

Tried pointing my mining rig to btg.suprnova but results in

Code:
Could not resolve hostname stratum+tcp://btg.suprnova.cc

even though I could resolve and ping btg.suprnova.cc.

You might check if you're cpu bound, however it's unlikely on this setup.
I'm developing zm on stock setting, so can't say anything about overclocking.

The --server parameter accepts hostnames, try btg.suprnova.cc (without the stratum+tcp:// prefix)

Right, you have to encode somehow an ssl connection, I've chosen a common prefix for it.
I've written it like this 'prefix hostname with 'ssl://' for encrypted connections' in the help output.
Not sure if this is confusing?

Doesn't look like it's CPU bound as I'm on a G4400 CPU and both cores are at less than 50% utilization.

"good" miner, w/o any correct statistic. I'm not sure, that you all, receiving on display what you have in reallity

after 1 GPU halted by overclock error, miner still show "total" as earler. and doesn't show any erorrs..
it's really, not a good

Since one of your GPUs crashed it stopped updating it's stats, there is no infrastructure to detect such situations currently so total numbers were still using the old values of the crashed GPU.

I wasn't aware so many of you are using overclocked/unstable systems, however I'm currently working on an GPU responsiveness infrastructure - so this kind of things will improve.
