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
https://i.imgur.com/OJqRuOq.png

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?

I was running bminer on flypool and my average sol/s went down to 830...while in the app it was always around 930. Also there were too many rejected shares. After i switched to DSTM may average went up to 890 which is as it should be...DSTM shows average of 905, but if you take away 2% the result on pool side is ok. Definetly DSTM is better at the moment.

I agree with you. Bminer is a fast miner, but as I said before - it is not 100% fair for user, and it seems that miner work for someone else more often than it should be. In my comparisons minimum 7-8% of ours hashpower are going to somebody's pockets, or the miner is not stable for sending shares 24hours, unfortunately(
I will stay with DSTM, which is 100% fair for me.
But if Realbminer can fix it - I will back again to bminer. Still waiting...

Switched from dstm last night to bminer just to give it a try. I'm using only 3x EVGA 1080's. bminer is reporting a 50-70 sol/s increase over dstm in SMoS, from about 1,680 (dstm) to 1,750 (bminer), however I cannot tell from the flypool graph if there is an actual increase. What IS apparent, there are far more invalid shares being reported with bminer. Link below shows: In the first 12 hours with dstm, only 1 invalid share, and in the second 12 hours with bminer there were 14 invalid shares. The big dip in the middle reflects where i made the switch from dstm to bminer. I do not yet know how this will affect my actual share of zec when i reach the 24 hour comparison, will be interesting.

well just that, disregarding any facts that can be found, kinda shows what is up with the software I guess.  I wouldnt really use it.  You can try excavator too.

When a con artist is under suspicion, their first line of defence is to ignore accusations, project confidence and change the subject.


I implore the community to keep asking questions and continue to seek answers. Individual research and investigations included.

If suspicion persists and the heat is turned up (by making more people aware of this issue), then we'll either get an acceptable explanation or we'll see the second line of defence for a con artist.

Tick, tock, tick tock...

P.S. the fact that many posters of this issue are newly registered may only mean that until now, they hadn't a motivation to register before (such is the reason for my registration).

I have been using this miner on BTCP and seem to be getting around 570-600 SOL/s on my GTX 1080 8GB on +125 Core and +500 Mem. The lowest is the card in my gaming PC and where I receive my video. My hash being reported on the pool has been equal to the hash in the cmd prompt. This is just my experience over the course of 3 days now.

yet again, realbminer ignores page after page of concerns and questions.

1. he won't remove the private connection
2. console over reports hashrate
3. rejected shares due to the same seed for the nonce every time a new job is sent by the pool

realbminer doesn't deserve a 2% dev fee. hes just doing cosmetic updates while the miner has many serious flaws.

i'm done with bminer

I have also noticed these strange issues. Although there is a constant high hashrate on the console, I see there is lot of variance on the pool site hashrate and they are lower. Sometimes for a short period it peaks and is increased but, for a short period. This was observed consistently across several pools. I have been using Bminer for a while however, with these observations and the dev not really addressing the issue that is a concern.

I will be returning back to the more obvious and consistent DSTM.

This is exactly what I experienced and exactly what I did, back on DSTM hashing away,

I really liked the interface of Bminer's stats, telling me I was getting more, I simply would like to experience those actual stats, I feel the GUI was giving false readings at this point...

Same.  Back on dstm unless issues are addressed.  Dev seems to have ZERO interest in doing so, so he will not get my 2%.

I am actively working on 6.0 and I hope I can release it out before next week. I am also working actively on a big release (after 6.0) which would bring additional hash algorithm supports in bminer.

I am not ignoring any of your concerns. During the last two weeks, I just focused more on the development and did not get time to monitor bitcointalk thread.

Here are my answers to questions about console hashrate, rejected shares, and private connections. I will also update FAQ because these questions have been raised many times.

# Why the reported hashrate of Bminer is higher than the reported hashrate from mining pools?

Bminer reports hashrate generated by your *hardware*, while a mining pool
estimates the hashrate based on the number of submitted shares. The Bminer
hashrate is different from the pool hashrate because:

1. The Bminer reported hashrate includes the devfee.

2. A small portion of the generated shares may get rejected or become stale due
   to network delay and transmission problems. Bminer reported hashrate will
   include such shares, but such shares will not contribute to the pool
   estimated hashrate.

3. Your pool hashrate is an estimate based on received shares, therefore it
   will vary a lot unless you control a significant amount of hashpower and you
   run it over a long period of time.

4. Some pools may calculate the estimated hashrate incorrectly.

Specially, if you turn on nofee option. You will see the same number of
hashrate but the underlying computation is slowed down due to disabled
optimizations.

# Why I see rejected shares when using Bminer?

There are many reasons for rejected shares. Two primary reasons for rejected
shares are:

1. Network latency: If your latency to the connected pool is too long, then a
   valid share may become stale and invalid during the transmission. This will
   cause the share being rejected. The solution to this problem is to choose a
   pool server that has low latency connection to your rig.

2. Overclocking: Aggressive overclocking setting may cause GPU to produce
   incorrect results and therefore generates invalid shares being rejected.

Software bugs in Bminer may also cause a small portion of rejected shares. We
will keep improving bminer and reduce the number of rejected shares.

# Why Bminer starts private connections to bminer.me

The first communication checks the update and receives license information,
including for example where to mine devfee. Note that in this communication
bminer *does not send out any information*, it only receives information from
bminer.me.

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. Starting from version 6.0.0, these
follow-up communications will become transparent.

I am actively working on 6.0 and I hope I can release it out before next week. I am also working actively on a big release (after 6.0) which would bring additional hash algorithm supports in bminer.

And there will be support for Algo Equihash 96/5 (Mars) for coin MinexCoin?
