Dev needs to address these issues, but he's nowhere. I'm uninstalling, too risky

I made a little comparison between Bminer 5.4.0 and DSTM 0.6 (24h for both) on my GTX1080+GTX970 (MSI Gaming)...
The results is:
In the miners console my speed are:
- In Bminer: for GTX1080 - 600Sol, for GTX970 - 350Sol (950sol for both)
- In DSTM:  for GTX1080 - 580Sol, for GTX970 - 340Sol (920sol for both)
But my pool (Viabtc) report that hashrate after 24h is: 890-900sol for DSTM (as it should be with 2% devfee and 0.5% rejected shares) and only 850-860 for Bminer (with nofee or with) -10%!!!
And with bminer I have a little more rejected shares (1.2% vs 0.5% on DSTM).
On the bminer side is more stable work (with DSTM I need to reduce a little my VGAs clocks). In my opinion - bminer is a good and stable miner but in final result on the pool it is not as fast as it report in console, or it work for someone else more often than it should be and without my permission?...
Conclusion: for now I will stay with DSTM, but keep waiting for a new version of Bminer with more stable and honest hashrate, because I like this miner for its stable work. Good luck Reallbminer and don't give up!

What a load a horseshite ... you continue to be totally vague, despite repeated requests for actual details and explanations. You must think we're all stupid. Let's see:

The first communication checks the update and receives license information, including for example where to mine devfee. Because of security reasons, it would be very hard to eliminate this private communication.

Total BS. If that were true, all miners would require it. What security concerns? Explain it to the experts. I'm a dev myself. Let's hear it.

The follow-up communications only send runtime information of bminer, like the mining speed of each card and performance status. This may enable bminer to choose better optimization strategies.

Complete BS. You don't need to call back home to enable optimizations. Build them into the executable like any sane developer.

I understand your concerns about the private connection. In future, I will consider making the follow-up runtime communications transparent. Or alternatively, I can create an option to opt-out the communications.

Remove it. Can't you see it's the biggest reason why people hate you and your miner?

Right now it all screams that you are shady. Sorry, but the repeated times you were called out on this and failed to provide details to reassure users all point to hidden interests.

I've been working really hard to try to expose what's being sent back and forth to his servers, but he's gone to great lengths to protect it. So far, here's what I've found:

This is the communication that occurs as soon as you start the miner (there's also some unprintable characters which I omitted, I believe this is encrypted info that I won't be able to break):

I'm reasonably sure this is Nanopool's cert which he uses explicitly to prevent cert forging and MITM attacks on his devfee.

Just FYI,

I have noticed a number of occurrences that a GPU crash will cause a restart with all miners mining directly to the dev pool.

I do not mine to nanopool, as I mine to a local private pool.

I found this while trying to identify a GPU that was not stable in the rig.

I'd like to see those stats for excavator, keep up the good work.  Its well built, im pretty sure reporting is accurate and overall speeds should be pretty good.
...
Just started up Bminer 5.4.0 allowing devfee, so lets see what a week can do there. :-)
Sheet updated a week later, once again. But, I could use some help interpreting some of the numbers.

As you can clearly see on the Shares sheet, Nanopool reports quite a few more shares from Bminer than the others I've tested.

Now, maybe someone can explain to me why payments are being stretched out into more time? Is the difficulty increasing? If so, why wouldn't I be sending fewer shares?

Also, what shares is Bminer reporting in its log?
I grabbed a couple of lines as far back as my cmd session would allow, and then some of the latest lines.

It seems Bminer is nice and stable and keeps counting Accepted shares with a fairly low number of Rejected shares. But, this number of accepted shares is nowhere near the number of shares reported by Nanopool. Please, can someone explain the difference in numbers to me.

realbminer,

you need to add the gpu identifier to your reporting for shares. how is anyone supposed to troubleshoot when we can't identify which gpu is having invalid solutions

Code:

I have a 8x 1080ti rig and bminer is definitively working way better than DSTM and EWFB. On the pool EWFB was about 5,74 Sol/s Average speed... now I've been using bminer and it's about 5,93 Sol/s

With EWFB on SMOS I was getting around 5700-5740, which is around 717 sol/s per card. This is not bad but individually on my Windows machine I was getting around 735-750. I was wondering why I wasn't getting more or less same speed on SMOS and it seems to be the miner (same EWFB on Windows and on SMOS)

Now with bminer I'm getting around 5940 sol/s on console and around the same on the pool.

The whole rig is also consuming around 50-70w less!

One interesting thing I noticed is that using the command nvidia-smi the usage of the cards was going from 90 to 100% using DSTM or EWFB but with bminer is always at 100%

Posting here so it's easier for me to see replies and keep up with Bminer development.

(I run it on my SMOS rigs, but it's not in ETHOS yet so those rigs run EWBF/DSTM.)

So after testing Bminer more and more
i found out that the program isnt accurate and shows false numbers

the hashrate is not accurate
i mined using 2 rigs 1 with bminer with 6 gpus each at over 520~530 sols and 1 with dstm at 490 ~ 500sols

dstm stil mined more coins in comparision after 24hours

so either bminer shows false sols or bminer mines for someone else

this is my post from the other day


here is a test i ran for exactly 24 hours of mining

6X ZOTAC 1070 AMP EX
GPUs are OCd to 450 memory clock and 70 core clock with 120 power 100 volt
TEMP at 50~60

i mined ZCASH using BMINER @ 3100 sols 3.1KHs
every gpu was giving me over 500 sols and some ran at 520 sols
using miningpoolhub

i only mined .02708199 ZCASH ( around 11$ with current rate)
what to mine showed around 14~15$ by that time in 24h
the miner never stoped and never crashed it ran for a straight 24hours

is what i mined accurate?



this was an old test i ran by that time... my friend has .03 zcash coins mined incomparision


i dont want to throw out accusations but this is what i came up with after testing bminer

I've heard a lot of rumors on bminer

Do you trust bminer / use it?

Have you compared it w/ dstm and if so which one earned more (side by side comparison is needed not one after the other)


There seems to be a lot of hate against bminer, anyone have some good links to facts supporting X claim?

I think that won't be an accurate test because amount of mined coins could vary depending on the difficulty. What I personally did is put EWFB/DSTM to mine for 24 to 48 hours and check the average speed reported to the pool (make sure the pool/miner doesn't get down in that time) and then do the same with Bminer

I'm personally getting more average speed on the pool, aside from whatever it reports on the console. I'm even getting a bit less power consumption (using a wall plug to see this). I'm guessing this is because the cards are always at 100% so the power flow is more stable... but not sure.

However this is on SMOS (Linux)... on Windows bminer could be just worse than EWFB or DSTM. Actually on Windows I get more hashrate from EWFB/DSTM than on SMOS... so bminer might just be better than EWFB/DSTM only on Linux

several people have tried to compare side by side but they don't have enough hashrate to make it accurate. you should take 2 rigs and compare them for your youtube channel. just run them for 24 hours, swap dstm/bminer on each rig at the 12 hour mark and see what you find out. or do it for a 3 days etc.

i know bminer over reports on the console for sure. i've tried it for a few weeks on my 1070ti rig and it was stable/consistent, seemed like it could be a tad faster than dstm...but without running side by side at the same time, who knows lol.

side note, how is your mining room remodel going?

I second this idea, but if shady things are happening, Voskcoin would even need to obfuscate his rig names (so Bminer does not know they are Voskcoin rigs), and run them for longer than 24 hours side by side one on DSTM one Bminer, same hash rate, against the same pool, with seperate wallet address or User names, if for instance he chooses (Suprnova?), a truly blind study,  so as to insure that the Bminer coder does not give preferential treatment to Voskcoin rigs, since that has been somewhat speculated, that Bminer is tunneling into the rigs remotely and switching pools for longer than any Dev fee should account for...

for sure, don't make it obvious and use voskcoin in the miner name etc Cheesy to make it so its easy for someone to manipulate results.

ideally a week would be great for a mining trial, and i do believe that alternating the rigs from dstm and bminer every set amount of time would be more accurate. not all hardware is created equal after all.

i think flypool is the best pool to use for comparison honestly. stable and reliable... suprnova's dashboard is a disaster lol.

Hi to everyone, I'm new to mining but have huge background in hardware and computer science (programmer by day, crypto enthusiast by night).

Running single rig 5 x 1080 (Inno3D X2 model) for more then month.

OS: Windows Server 2016 (latest update, unnecessary services disabled, firewall tweaked).
NV Driver: 390.77 (CUDA - Force P2 state = Off)
AB settings:
PL: 73%
CC: +170
MemClock: + 550 (+500 no diffrence)
Pool: zcash.flypool.org
and super stable net, not a single disc. in days

Was running intermittently dstm's zm and this bminer, past few days in periods of 24-48 hours.
Starting test precisely at midnight and taking data next midnight.

Speeds
Bminer
Avg. per card ~540 Sol/s (~ rejected shares avg. 0.5%-1%)

Dstm
Avg. per card ~522 Sol/s (~ rejected shares avg. 0.5%-1%)

This readings are from miner API, also same is in console.


But on pool's dashboard, I noticed that bminer gives gradual decline in avg. hashrate and then in about ~12h same growth.
And also there are bigger spikes in valid shares but also bigger dips.

For dtms avg. hashrate chart looks more stable, and also avg. hashrate for 24h looks same as bminer, regardlessly that bminer reports bigger hashrate in console ~2700 vs 2620 (dtms).

And one more observation, payout time for dtms was 3 times (at 8h each) in 24 hours,
and for bminer that was in  25.1 and 26.6 hours.

For me something is fishy in bminer.
I don't like it because it keeps opening connection to some external server. I know it's convenient to have check for updates, but also is not having trojan horse (backdoor) on machine which is running 24/7.

Second, how do we know which shares are for dev fee?
In dtms miner with * are marked dev fee shares, someone could just do scrapping of console windows and at same time collecting data from pools API and then compare that really 2% of shares are dev fee not more.

I plan to make a tool to collect data from miner and pool and see which miner is really honest, or maybe just spend some time more and dev. my own CUDA miner and don't bother with these. (later is harder and more time consuming when you have full time job).

Look at the orange line:
Bminer 24h run

Dtms last 24h run
https://i.imgur.com/0AiZB9Q.png


Definitely need more testing, I'm really more concerned how much shares are going to dev, because we are payed for accepted share not for hashrate counter.

So realbminer how I know which shares are your's, should i configure packet analyzer on server and count my share your share and then compare share count on pool?
