Unfortunately my CPU is at 100% always and a GTX 1060 @ around 240 Sol, but that can be because I have only a Celeron CPU and that is maybe too slow for your miner. But generally we need as less power as possible. If your app do not do other things than mining then please have a look for loops inside your source code, because a 100% CPU is often the result of a loop without a minimal sleep if you are using c or c++. That was tested on a fresh restarted server and the nvidia driver was also not blocking, tested with nvidia inspector. generally a miner would not need more than 10% for all. My watchdog written in Go do not need more than 1% and also get all data via nvml and looks a bit more readable:

Typically, running 2 GPUs does not consume that much of CPU usage. Your CPU is a power one: Xeon 8 cores, so yes 30% is a way high.
I havent tested this miner yet, but I think the CPU usage will be even much more if we mine with 6 x GPUs or 8 x GPUs rather than that of only 2 x GPUs.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me what I should modify the mine.bat fiile??

@echo OFFREM Change the following address to your Zcash taddr.
SET ADDRESS= 
SET USERNAME=%ADDRESS%.w
SET POOL=asia1-zcash.flypool.org:3333
SET SCHEME=stratum
START "Bminer: When Crypto-mining Made Fast" bminer.exe -uri %SCHEME%://%USERNAME%@%POOL%

I am new...

What I should change username and Scheme???

I know I need to change my taddr and pool

other than taddr and pool, what else I have to change??

Thanks for advance Smiley

Best Regards,
Joe Smiley

At least you have to set the address and the pool. the username is just the address + worker name like in your example %ADDRESS%.w where %ADDRESS% is the address variable and ".w" is the workername. the SCHEME depends on your pool. If you use ssl then just change to "stratum+ssl" otherwise it is fine. But I would remove the "START" because otherwise you are unable to see any error when the miner stops, because it will open a new window.

Thanks for reply!

p.s. Could you tell me what I should add in the batch file?  If I want to use web browser to monitor it? I know I have to use the -api but I am not sure the syntax...

Thanks Smiley

More miners is always good Smiley
Gonna try this one.
Hope you expand Bminer to include various equihash coins.

Support for Minex (MNX)?
MNX uses the MARS algorithm.

OMG its using Equihash with diffrent start params...
Quote
Coin parameters
Total amount: 19 000 000
Block rewards: 2.5
Hashing algorithm: Mars (Equihash based)
https://minexcoin.com/html/download/wpeng.pdf
+1 for MARS algo Wink

I did not test it but when you look into the documentation then just add the param "-api 127.0.0.1:1880" or if you do not want access local then "0.0.0.0:1880" or which ever network you have configured. "0.0.0.0" means all networks so there you have to take care more for security so that no other can access it. The port number after the ":" can be any but greater than 1000 if not already used.

Scanning a miner for virus/backdoor is not an easy task because most virus scanner mark programs as virus when they use crypto libraries and miner like monero for CPU are often used by hackers to earn money these days.

Tested it , Has the Hashrate boost as advertised but the cpu usage isn't worth it
Pc becomes unresponsive as the cpu in by mining rig is only single core and miner crashes
Things look brigher on my Regular Usage PC with a single card , Nice boost of around 10 -18%
Can't say much more for now as only have run it for around a hour , Switiching back to zcoin mining as the power usage of lyra2z algo is really less
anyways Good Work sir , Waiting for decrease in cpu usage

did you check any hidden CPU mining activities? :-)
I don't see many people using this miner yet... worry it have some backdoor Smiley

Only because 2 scanner say that it is not clean does not mean that is is not clean. all big players say it is clean. Falcon is based on machine learning so you never can be sure if it is trained wrong and the other was just heuristic. But of course when you have a new virus with a new signature then you never can be sure. no scanner will find it when it uses random source code and vm/scanner detection etc.

it seems a bit faster and a bit cooler

typically cooler cards means more efficient, less power consumed for a bit more hash..

now observing for stability.

at home I have better performance than ewbf on my 1080.

but when I use it on my rig of 7x1070, the miner crashes after a few minutes and restarts, did you have this problem?

it seems faster than ewbf but see the stability.

go to the moon !!

me too... it is crashed on 3 X 1080ti Z170 system within 5 minutes....
and it used over 40% cpu power on my 4790K CPU with 32GB RAM....
While ZWBF used 2-3% only....

I do worry it have some hidden CPU mining program.... and I giveup and use back ZWBF already...

A newby and a new miner ...... mmm...

I won't be using this for now, to much risk for a few more hash....
