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

I'm beginning to think the same thing but it's more than that, when you first run it you get really nice looking numbers, then after a couple of hours, what you say sets in.

Here is the comparison of DSTM vs BMiner.

First line is DSTM that had been running for a few days
Next line is Bminer after 3 hours.  I saw grossly deviating current hash as well.

This was a GTX 950 that I just happened to have, but the two sets of number are on the same computer with the same hardware, etc.

Code:
Current Hashrate    Average Hashrate
      0H/s              155.9H/s
      80H/s             147.9H/s

As a final test, I'm going to leave it running in -nofee mode while I do some other work on a different miner

Can you run your numbers again with devfee turned on?

The miner will disable a number of optimizations if you disable devfee, resulting in slower hashrate.

Maybe I mis spoke - those numbers above are *with devfee turned ON* and are what FlyPool is reporting, not the miner software.  Probably the biggest problem is that the radically changing instant hash rate, I see it cycle up and down by huge margins like over 100h/s in this case and this is just a small GPU.

I'm running in -nofee mode right now just to see what happens

The mining pool is estimating your hashrate based on the number of shares that the miner has submitted.

Given that you have only one GPU, it will take a while to stabilize. I would suggest running both miners for at least 24 hours to get the results.

ok, will do that and report any adjustments.  I've never had to do that with any other miner software so far...

But it doesn't really matter, because this is just a test anyway

Software reports hashrates are up from the other miner software that I've ran in comparison, but that really doesn't tell you anything, what counts is what the pools shows.

ps. can you talk to awesomeminer.com to see if they can support your miner - please?? Smiley

i tried it for 7hrs, with dev fee on. i'll give it another shot.. but i have to say after 7hrs this miner was close to 70mh/s off the reported average rate. i even swapped it to an identical card with the same settings to make sure it wasn't that card. i'll see tomorrow what it says..

Looks like a slight improvement on DTSM  I tested using 3 1070's and 2 1070 ti's

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.

My GTX 1060 jumped from 330 Sol/s to 340 Sol/s after updating... Definitely worth.

Well, I've managed to solve my problem:
Code:
Get error: The semaphore timeout period has expired, resseting in 5 seconds.
Connection failed due to External host closed the connection"
by updating to 5.2.0

Did some tests, compared to DSTM.
Settings: 4x EVGA 1070Ti on 63%, core +200, mem +700

DSTM showed 2070 Sol/s. Average last 4h hashrate on Miningspeed 2060 Sol/s
Bminer 5.2.0, 2140 Sol/s. Average last 4h hashrate on Miningspeed 2130 Sol/s  (0.2% rejected shares)

Looks very promising till now.
Thanks!

@realbminer , i had a minor issue with 5.1.0 on linux, one of the cards hang and bminer exited and didn't restart although the default setting is -watchdog=true, whats the deal here?

It is possible. When a card crashes you might have to reboot or even hard reboot to recover from hardware failures.

See https://www.bminer.me/faq/#bminer-crashed-and-it-cannot-be-restarted-until-rebooting-the-machine for detailed explanations.

One of my machines stopped sending shares for some reason, miner reported hashing speeds in command prompt, but there were no "accepted share" messages and no hashrate on poolside, after manual miner restart all came back to normal. Can't give you any details because I didn't set up logging into a file, but I did it now, so if that happens again, I'll provide a log.

I had kind of the same problem (see my post above).
Solved it with version 5.2.0.
But could be a completely different problem.

How did you achieve that speed, my 1060 only does 270~315 with a lot of power increase as it goes higher. pls show me how and thanks

It would be nice to tweak the miner output a little, like make it more organized and readable. Also adding temperature and fan speed readouts would be nice.

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?

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.

Hello, the same here. When I run bminer.exe without parameters it pauses for a maybe half a second then quits to the console. No output. I've got Visual Studio 2017 installed, so the libraries you mentioned are in place. What could be missing? Windows 10 x64. I've got number of miners, no problems. Card configuration: MSI 1080 GamingX, MSI 1060 Armor 6G.

Just try adding a pause command after the arguments in your .bat file.

bminer -ArgumnentsHere -AndHere
pause


Edit:
run this for help with a list of available commands, pretty self explanatory lol

bminer -help
pause

Going to run some multi hour benchmarks on my 1070ti and my 980 individually on the competitive miners and hopefully put my mind at ease with these huge fluctuations and massive dips pool side.

Please let me know your results for the 1070 ti's. Mine are now running 510 sols/s for 125W on dstm and would like to know if bminer can get better results. Thank you
