I get a SSL connect error after I enter the Bounty pool URL and my address.
How can I solve this?

What was your URL? It should be https://vanitypool.appspot.com/

Please help me understand this:

Just started experimenting with samr7/oclvanityminer and have dedicated a 5850 to the task. According to the calculator, I'll earn a little over .11BTC per day with this card doing normal (non-vanity) mining.

It's currently hashing around 20.20 Mkey/s and working on this problem:

"1vanity" Reward: 0.079600 Value: 0.000323 BTC/MkeyHr.

So that's 0.000323 * 20.20 * 24 = 0.1565904 BTC, right? So I should be earning more than I would if I mined straight? But then they take 20 percent out first or does that figure already have the 20 percent taken out?

It also says 50% in 8.0h, I take that to mean there's a 50 percent chance it will find the solution in 8 hours. So approximately 100% (statistically) in 16 hours, that means the reward (0.796) for 16 hours average work?  So 24/16 * 0.0796 BTC = 0.1194 BTC which is not close to 0.1565904 BTC. Where is my math failing?

Does my Mkey/s look reasonable for that card?

If I flip a coin once, it has a 50% chance of landing on heads. That doesn't mean that the second flip has a 100% chance of landing on heads. 50% chance in the first eight hours and a 50% chance in the second eight hours = 75% chance in 16 hours.

You earn nothing if you don't find the person a vanity address; you earn the reward just once if you do. The value calculation is just to help you decide if it's worth trying.

Does my Mkey/s look reasonable for that card?
That is a reasonable hashrate for your card. You can increase both the GPU core overclock and GPU RAM overclock to the maximum possible to extract the highest hashrate.

I was interested in this too and realized there was very little out there to help people figure this out, so I wrote some scripts to do the calculations for me: http://fizzisist.com/mining-value

As for the statistical stuff, the BTC/Mkey stuff is the number you should be using. This is the expected earnings on average with the current pool of work. It doesn't matter how long you mine for (although as you mine for longer time, your earnings will approach that of the average, yet can be subject to huge statistical variance over short time periods). Bitcoin solo mining has the same problem, so pools were invented. Unfortunately, vanity pool isn't a pool in the same sense, so you still have quite a bit of variance, although MUCH less than solo mining bitcoins.

Hi wigglyuk,

Do you use an HTTP proxy?

Oclvanitygen uses libcurl, and unfortunately it won't read your proxy settings for MSIE or Firefox.  If you need to set a proxy, you can set the http_proxy or HTTPS_PROXY environment variables.  For example:

Code:
H:\>set HTTPS_PROXY="http://172.16.0.1:8080/"
H:\>oclvanityminer -u https://vanitypool.appspot.com -a 1XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I finally had a chance to look at the source and apparently the units of the "value" shown are simply BTC/Mkey, but multiplied by 3600, or in code:

Code:
wip->value = (reward * 1000000.0 * 3600.0) / difficulty;

This is not BTC/MKeyHr, this is a meaningless number. More correctly, you could say the units are BTC*s/Mkey*hr. I suggest removing the 3600 and just displaying the value as BTC/Mkey. If the number is too small (too many decimals to be easily readable), change it to BTC/Gkey, since most people are calculating at least a Gkey every minute. If you would like to go one step further, you can show BTC/hr as:

Code:
3600 * rate * reward / difficulty

Where rate is the calculated Mkey/s for your hardware (so vg_output_timing() will have to been called already).

Hi fizzisist,

You're right, it's an entirely arbitrary and not 100% correctly labelled unit.  I just wanted it to display some semi-comparable notion of value.  The idea was to create something along the lines of kilowatt-hours, whereas the proper unit would be megajoules, but the power company doesn't publish their electricity rates per megajoule.

Anyway, I'll take your patch on GitHub to convert the display unit to GKeys.  Thanks!

i get >20 on a 5830 running at 980/1025 1280x1024

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

I find it strange that I get 25 Mkey/s on Windows 7, but only 20 Mkey/s on linux. I tried upgrading to the bleeding edge xorg PPA and that made no difference.

Great! I completely understood where you were coming from once I switched it to BTC/Mkey and all the values displayed as 0.000000! BTC/Gkey is definitely better than BTC/Mkey. BTC/MkeyHr isn't that confusing (bitcoindaddy figured it out above), but it's unclear enough.

I'm more happy to see the "Total value" line, especially when there are a lot of patterns available from a single public key, like there are right now! Thanks for pulling that in!

thanks worked perfectly.
Is it possible to run two devices at once or can I only do this by opening oclvanityminer twice?
and how can I select a particular pattern to mine?

thats simple, ati drivers for linux are same as winblows; crap, on linux even alot more!
try upgrade to the latest fglrx and picking the right SDK, good luck Wink

openssl                                1.0.1-4ubuntu5.5

On windows - I think the executable is statically linked with SSL? It's the latest version of oclvanityminer64
