Hai all Miner,

Just to share out a light weigh Linux based OS to all miner here.
Fully Support Support Nvidia GPU. (Include Overclock)
AMD GPU can use but lag of Overclock function.

Currently XMOS only support ETH mining client. using "ethminer" from github that been optimal for Nvidia GPU.
No Dev fee..

here the Ethminer link:-
https://github.com/ethereum-mining/ethminer

Here some information about the OS:-
I am using Linux 16.04 LTS USB Image create by "Cyclenerd" from github.
TQ Cyclenerd for the Great work. here the link on github.
https://github.com/Cyclenerd/ethereum_nvidia_miner

After using for few week, I did some "Bash Scripts" to tweak the Mining processor to be more smart and hope to get more share from POOL.
Future on XMOS:-
1. Plug and Play, for all Nvidia GPU.
2. Only need to change setting on 1 Config files, then everything is running. Simple and easy.
3. Running multi instances for each GPU.  (Ex:- if you have 6 GPU install, it will running 6 instances. all connect direct to the same POOL)
4. Auto Kill and restart Ethminer if no job receive from the POOL for 5 min. (EX:- Only kill 1 instances that was not job receive, no effect to other instances - be smart  Grin Grin)
5. Auto Restart the PC if detected "CUBA ERROR" from Ethminer (EX:- CUBA ERROR is cause by un-stable Overclock, have to find out the stable OC for the rings by yourself)
6. Nvidia GPU Overclock function. (Ex:- Can set diffident OC setting for each card)
7. Total size of the OS is 8GB only. Can write to any 8GB USB Stick and start mining. (EX:- Please use USB 3.0 for faster boot up time)
8. Easy understand Log file for easy troubleshooting.  
9. And the most important thing, it was FREE.

How to get XMOS

I am happy to receive any recommendations...

 Grin

XMOS Ver:2.0

Todo list:-

1. Wifi Support -( Done) But only with WPA and WPA2 security.
2. Keyboard Fix when direct connect to Mining Rings - (DONE)
3. Advance Options to start Ethminer - (DONE)
4. AMD Overclock and Under-clock -(Pending) Still finding the way to under Voltage it. But it running fine with direct Bios Mod.

Other what your all request...?

Other improvement on ver 2.0:-

1. Re-compiled custome kernel 4.11 using ROCm source (With AMD DAG Fix, My RX470 can stable at 30MH/s with Bios Mod)
2. Better Watchdog function.
3. Can Mix AMD and Nvidia GPU together.  
4. Slim and light weight image, still running on 8GB
5. Plug and Mine on most of the system.
============================================

To configure Wifi please follow this step:-

1. sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
2. Put in your wifi AP Name and Password.
3. Restart the system, it should work.


Report Hash Rate to pool..

Please add -RH option to advance ethminer options:-
Like This:-
COMMFLAG="--farm-recheck 2000 -SC 2 -RH"



Happy Mining ....  ^_^

Thank you for this contribution to the mining community : there is no such tools for NVidia GPUs users :-).

3 questions :
 1 - Are the sources available ?
 2 - Is there any fee ?
 3 - Can you explain the OC features for NVidia GPUs

Hi Zenfr,
Thank you for give me a change, hope every one like this OS.

For your question here the answer:-

1. For source code I will open up github soon.
2. No fee, totally free.
3. For Nvidia OC I am using Nvidia-Setting and Nvidia-smi.
They was a 3 type OC setting inside XMOS.
NV_OC="1"  Present Overclock setting. It will -100 to core and +500 to memory.
NV_OC="2"  same OC setting apply to all GPU install on the system.
NV_OC="3"  Each GPU having own OC Setting. Need to set OC setting 1 by 1 for each GPU

    You just need to put OC value on the conf files. That all.
    Ex for:-
    nvidia code: NV_CLOCK="-100"
    Your are set -100 to Nvidia Code. Same as MSI afterburner
    Nvidia memory: NV_MEM="1000"
    You are set +1000 to GPU memory. If you can get +500 stable on MSI afterburner, on Linux it was x 2 (1000).
    
Just to share current setting that I am using:-
This my mining ring running on biostar star TB250 Pro
Using 12 PCs MSI Nvidia 1050 TI card
Celeron processor
4GB memory
16GB USB Pendrive

NV_WATT="52.5"
NV_CLOCK="-180"
NV_MEM="1130"
NV_FAN="88"
    
Can download for try.

I can accept any  recommendations, and make the OS more user friendly.

Hi goen,

Tq for give me a try.

If you connect keyboard mouse and monitor on the mining rings, You need to press Control + Alt + F1 to enable the display.

XMOS is design for  simple and easy use. It was no need keyboard mouse monitor to connect when mining. Using putty is more easy and save cost.  Grin

U also can connect to the xmos using any web browser. It will call out the webase ssh as well, u can do port forward on router to that port.
HTTPS://<xmosip>:4200/

Inside the mining console, you can use Control + a + 1 ( or 2 or 3 or ... ) to select screen.

Try OC the memory to 4000MHz, most of the DDR 5 memory can stable at that speed.
And under voltage your card.
For GTX 1070 GPU can try this setting:-
Power limit:- 110 Watt
Core:- -180
Memory:- 1450 (Make it reach 4000MHz)

Please try out the best future about xmos.
Auto restart ethminer when no job for 5 min.
Auto reboot when detect CUDA ERROR
Running individual insane for each GPU.

HAPPY MINING...

Please do let me know what other thing that and improve the xmos.

overcool,

my second attemp of XMOS experiment today is to play with the OC.
it turn that OC clock speed is raising slowly.
at the first 3-5 minutes of mining, the speed is still at stock speed.
after 10 min it reach the peak but sometimes drift to lower speed a little bit.
maybe the system got a little hot i guess.
tried with single gtx1050ti OC version. drawing 105W from wall.

is there any monitoring software (client).
i need to be alerted when a miner is off or the rig is hang so i can check it immediately.
sound alarm on a monitoring client is the best notif in my scenario.
plus an email notif it will be perfect.

one question about this OS, how can i restart the miner only, without reboot the whole system?
i need to restart the miner after change the conf.

third experiment is to run 6-12 gpus in a single rig.

btw nice OS gan,

Hi goen,

TQ for the update.

Here the answer for ur question.

1. The system will auto apply the Overclock setting, 5 min after the system boot up.
2. For system monitor and alert system still on development. But currently the system won't hang.
 Because:- 1. When any GPU hang, the system will auto reboot. (Hard reboot).
                 2. If miner hang (No job for 5 min), it will kill the miner and start it agian.
3. After u change the conf, if only related to OC setting, you just need to use nvoc command to reapply the overclock setting. Command to close miner I will include in next release. Currently u can try like this:-
Use:- sudo killall ethermine<0-11>
Base on which GPU you want to close the miner.
Each GPU running on it own miner.
Please take notes, after the miner been kill, it will auto start back after 5 min. (No job)
To manually start back the miner use command  like this:-
/home/prospector/runlog/miner/startminer<0-11>.sh

Please try it up.

Happy mining.. TQ for try my OS.

Hi Overcool..

I just wanted to say thank you..

The watch dog feature is awesome.. Currently mining with 22 gtx 1060's

I was using Cyclenerd's miner (he did a great job with this) for about a month.. I'm happy your were able fork it.

Again, thanks for the features.. I hope to test out the AMD cards soon.



Here's a screen of the miners..

Hi Elite.Coin,

Tq for me a try,

Hope you will like the OS.

Current version of XMOS also can also mine with AMD GPU, AMDpro drive 17.30 already installed, but don't have overclock funtion. All watchdog function was running fine. For AMD GPU, Currently I am using Polarisbios edition to put all the stable setting in, and flash it to the AMD card. It will run direct to that setting, no need to overclock with software any more. Tested on RX470 with core 1250, and memory 2100, it running on 97watt stable with 27MHs.

Got time can try it up...

Happy mining ... ^_^

This looks nice. I will try it tonight on my test rig.

I am now using nvOC, but at this moment I am mining mostly Ethash and this XMOS looks very light weight.

Are there any plans to make an AMD supported version with overclock and undervolt options?

Hi georgekkenney,

You want to use a pi to control multiple of miner? I think it can be done..

Hi dev,
Need your clarification before trying. I have rx470 rig which overclocked using bios editor, etc under windows. Before using xmos, do i have to restore the overclock into default?

What about that setting 1250 and 2100, will it be ok on my gpu? I haven't tried to use that timing before, have no idea whether my gpus are capable at that.

One more thing, will it be oke to use mix gpu rig, amd and nvidia? Afaik, ethminer is not working on my mix gpu using -X option, but cmiiw.

Thanks & regards.

I like this software, but I think it will need some small improvements. It's very easy to setup and is booting super fast.

I have a few questions:
- Is it possible to make an option in the config to auto enable the screen after booting (instead of control + alt + F1)?
- Is there a way to change/set the resolution for the attached screen?
- How do I change the farm-recheck? Maybe it's an idea to add an advance mode in the config for the more experienced users.
- How do I change the overclock delay time? When everything is stable it can directly start after booting. I'd like to see this as an option in the config file too.
- How do I change/overwrite the Ethminer version? I'd like to do some tests with Ethminer 0.12.0rc1.

I hope you keep it clean and simple. Because with this light weight OS you can make the difference comparing to other Linux based OS Smiley
