Great miner btw, better performances than dstm I have to say.  Smiley

The version 5.2.0 has been released. It brings a few improvements on NiceHash and Windows:

  • Introduced the option -logfile to append the logs into a file.
  • Minor optimization on Windows for cards that are mounted on the risers.
  • Improve compatibility for NiceHash.

Enjoy!

When are you gonna fix e-mail adresses?

I tested and it works for me. Can you take another look at https://www.bminer.me/examples/#escaping-characters-in-the-uri ?

I did it exactly like in the link but nanopool got workerFfoo0gmail.com as worker name...

This is exactly what I had on various pools and on various equihash coins (each time testing for at least 24 hours) with v5.1 and v5.0
Lets see if this v5.2 actually improved anything *in pool*

Update: first thing I do notice is so far no rejects, over multiple machines in about 15 minutes of mining. lets see what 24h test will show

bminer might report faster in the miner but on nanopool im seeing less than ewbf

first half of this is 1060 3gb on ewbf 2nd is with bminer

Been using bMiner now for about a week after using EWBF first and then DSTM.

Very stable and getting the most sols out of the 3 miners from bMiner although DSTM is a close second.

My 1060 6gb is running at 335-345 (avg is 339 id say) sols with OC. And yea the reject rate is very low like someone mentioned earlier.

All in all, good job to the dev and thanks!

5.2 seems to be worse ... I don't think 5.2 fixes the problem I reported earlier about Nicehash (and miningrigrentals). I still get lots of

Code:
Rejected share #152 ([1,"Share above target.",null])

and lots of

Code:
Rejected share #554 ([2,"Job not found.",null])

Sometimes 5-10 of them in a row. 5 rejected shares out of 85 is bad.

@realbminer: you may want to do some proper testing yourself on Nicehash, and on MiningRigRentals (with and without Nicehash as pool). Right now bminer is causing more harm than good when used on those.

Any advantages regarding Hashrate between 5.2 and 5.1? Actually i am running my 1070 Ti witch 500-510s, at60% PL, +260 Core, +595 Mem with 105-109 Power Consumption.

I have different results with nicehash. 12 hours of work with ver. 5.2 on 2 machines, 1.1 and 1.2% rejected shares, DSTM had slightly lower percentage (0.5-0.9%), but bminer has 6% faster hashrate, so it covers that up I think. USA server. 6x 1070 Ti's 3030 avg. hashrate, 4.3 sols/w, 2x 1070's, 968 avg hashrate, 3.89 sols/w

5.2 version has slightly higher speed, try it!

Anyone have this working on Titan XP cards? Works fine on 1080ti (about 4% faster than EWBF) but doesn't even start with Titans

Great work with the miner!
I've noticed the rejected shares go down drastically to about 1.2% on my machine anyways.
Pool side the hash rate looks sporadic, so its really hard to tell which miner averages a better over all rate.
I've got my 1070ti at about 550 sols/s and my 980 at about 330.
Compared to other miners I notice about 15-20 sols/s more between both cards, i'm enjoying it!

Note that I connected to Nicehash via miningrigrentals, not directly. That's where I get a lot of those rejected shares and errors. Setup a rig on miningrigrentals, add nicehash as pool to it, then connect bminer to miningrigrentals. The number of rejected shares shouldn't be different but bminer seems to get confused when nicehash changes nonces

Goodminer so far.

For the people who are trying to add -logfile to version 5.2

Add this: -logfile log.txt  Wink

Just tried again for fun -- still doesn't start for me on Windows 10. Not from batch file, nor on its own with any command arguments.

And that's with two different Windows 10 machines, one AMD Ryzen 7 1700, one intel i7 3770. Both with a GTX 1070.

Any way to debug this? I don't have anything strange running at the same time, as far as I can tell.

Just to confirm -- did you turn off windows defender? Windows Defender sometimes would deny the execution.

What happens if you directly click on bminer.exe?

Yes, I had tried disabling Windows Defender, despite it showing no indication that it cared about bminer.exe. Disabling Windows Defender had no effect.

If I double-click bminer.exe a cmd-style window appears for a couple seconds, then closes. It has no contents. There are no error messages or other outputs.

EDIT: same result with new 5.2.0 version.

Try installing Visual Basic libraries, .NET Framework libraries, and latest CUDA SDK. 99% it will fix this for you

I do some very basic, minimal compiling on these machines, such as compiling xmrig & xmr-stak. So I have the CUDA SDK, and some .NET/VB libraries. Can you suggest specifics on which ones I might be missing?

What are the outputs if you are running the executable directly?

first half of this is 1060 3gb on ewbf 2nd is with bminer


What commands did you use for tests?

What are the clocks and memory settings?

One common mistake is to disable devfee. As described in the documentation, disabling devfees will disable some of the optimizations which that results less hashrates on the pool side.

No output. When I run bminer.exe in cmd window, it just pauses, then goes back to the prompt. When I double-click it, an empty console window briefly appears, then disappears.

Looks like after a few minutes, it's settling in around 1.68 kS/s on my rig:

* four 1070s: three MSI Gaming Xs and a PNY reference design
* Gentoo Linux
* mining at zpool

The MSI cards are power-limited to 115W and underclocked by 100 MHz.  The PNY card is power-limited to 95W and running at stock speed.  Total power consumption for the rig is 525W.

With the EWBF miner, I was seeing 1.52 kS/s.  tpruvot's ccminer was running closer to 1.2, so even with a devfee, it looks like you're still coming out ahead.

I would strongly advise people to look at their mining pool hashrate for this miner and not the miners reported hashrate... Do the test...    Shocked
