I'm not sure if -xpm option is working or not.
I have connected three computers to my server using -xpm option.
jhprimeminer -o http://server.address:9912 -u username -p password -m 61 -target 9 -bttarget 9 -xpm coinaddress
Total pps is around 79000 all together. I ran for a week, but never found a block.
Also, when I used to pool mine, I'd see something like it found some chains once in a while, but I never seen that message since soloing.
Can someone look into this?
Actually it worked! I just needed to wait for the 3,000 confirmations. Awesome!

Where can I find documentation for all the possible switch options like -t -d -bttarget -primes etc?

I have donwloaded jhPrimeminer_RdBBeta4.0d_x64.zip from https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq24hzo993afy9c/l7icP0KiuM (link from ypool)
and it crashes as soon as it starts.

I 've used the win7_only mpir.dll

from the problem details i get that : Fault Module Name: mpir.dll

Any ideas?

Is there a way to run this miner and only globally tax my CPU for 10 %.
I'd like to casually run it as a process on boot without worrying my desktop is going to explode.

I don't know why but with jhPrimeminer i noticed that it doesn't slow down my computer when it is running in the background. Slowing down for browsing and casual usage that is. I 'm not sure why this is happening but i 'm constantly running it now.

You can try making a batch file and executing the miner like this:
Code:
cmd /c start /LOW "%0" jhPrimeminer.exe -o http://ypool........
This will give the jhPrimeminer process low priority which means that in case other processes needs power they will get it. Originally the miner was written to have process/thread priority set to "BELOWNORMAL" but in some of the releases the developers may have changed this back to normal.
You also can control the number of CPU cores a process is assigned to by using the "/affinity" parameter. The following example will set the miner run on core 0,1,4,5:
Code:
cmd /c start /affinity 0x33 jhPrimeminer.exe

Good stuff, Thank you so much for taking the time to reply!
Before you replied I tried setting "-t 1" and that seemed to reduce the load on all my cores to 10-30%.

Is this also a workable solution? (Looks like it would still mine 1 XPM / Day with my 2500K)

I actually prefer working with all cores, but taxing them all to a minimum, or whatever setting ensures the lifespan of my CPU.

Anyway on this affinity setting "/affinity 0x33"
How do I know what this means? How does this translate into Core: 0, 1, 4, 5
How would I set it to only use Core 0 or Core 1 for example?

I wouldn't worry about CPU lifespan. In my 20+ year working with computers I never saw a burned CPU. (and I was obsessed with overclocking).
The number after /affinity parameters is a bitmask - every bit represents a CPU. Core 0 will be 0x1, Core 1 = 0x2, Core 1+2 = 0x3

That explains it. I guess mine is set either to low priority or belownormal then. Does this make any change anyway?

I 'm a noob to but it seems that you are mining with 6477 pps. A little bit slow but eventually you 'll find a share.  Tongue

 I was wondering if anyone can point me to a document describing the format and layout of the FoundShares.log file which rdebourbon's jhprimeminer produces? I'd like to extract and plot some data from mine if possible to analyse what my changes to settings are doing. I'm aware of the Unofficial jhprimeminer thread on here at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=257623.0 but can't seem to find what I'm looking for. If anyone can help I'd be very grateful.

Could anybody tell me what MNPS, PPS, WPS and ACC are?
I'm guessing PPS are Primes per second, but what about MNPS? It also seems to influence the overall mining yield.

Is there a better primorial than 61 for recent i7 CPUs?

Those number aren't proven very useful. they are indicators of different steps of the mining process. 
The Chain/day is more useful in telling how quick you could find 9-chains, a fraction (i.e. 1-difficulty) of which will be blocks. The value/h tells how this miner has been doing given the current reward policy -- higher means more reward from the pool.

Isn't the pps the main speed indicator? I remember a hardware comparison list and i think it was sorted based on pps. Not sure though.

No. It was a long time ago most people used pps, when no one understood the mining process much except Sunny King. these days cpd is used but different miners use slightly different definition of cpd.
the only reliable indicator is how many XPM you mine perday, after mining for some days when many a few blocks are found. It can take weeks to do so. this number is tied to the pool performance if you are not soloing.

I am using  rdb 4.0F2 with "-m 61 -target 9 -bttarget 9"

One of the machine has this
Code:
12/02/13- xxxxxxx[edited] - Diff: 9.988664 / 6.750000
Valid/Total shares: [ 3904 / 4209 ]  -  Best/Max diff: [ 10.000000 / 0.000000
Share Value - Total/Per Hour/Last Block: [ 714.894592 / 1.985197 / 0.000000 ]
 6ch/h:     8.13 - 2926 [ 914 / 835 / 1177 ]
 7ch/h:     3.23 - 1162 [ 347 / 370 / 445 ]
 8ch/h:     0.34 - 122 [ 43 / 37 / 42 ]
 9ch/h:     0.06 - 20 [ 5 / 11 / 4 ]
10ch/h:     0.00 - 0 [ 0 / 0 / 0 ]
MNPS:181.44   PPS:15071        WPS:6.578    ACC:2291
Current Primorial: 61 - Sieve Size: 1779500 - Prime Count: 43685

Why there is a 10ch/h line while no 10-chains have been found, as indicated by [0/0/0] ? Why is the max diff 10.000000 ? Did the miner find a 10chain but somehow it wasn't valid?
Is it related to "-target 9 -bttarget 9" option?


Actually what is the three numbers in [a / b / c] anyway?
