The problem is something else. Let me explain my situation. I have 7 rigs at home out of which 1 was running your miner and other were on claymore. I have another 20 rigs at my warehouse, all running claymore. All 27 rigs are on us1 servers of ethermine. At night all my home rig had connection issue but my warehouse rigs were fine. My internet connection was good as I was able to mine on other pools. us1 servers of ethermine was good as all my warehouse rigs were doing fine. It seems that us1 and eu servers of ethermine were blocking my IP after using your miner.

I dont know what happen but us1 servers of ethermine was good yesterday.
   We have used three different ISPs to analyze the problem and we think we found what is causing it. Basically their servers are extremely busy and sometimes they refuse new connections (the devfee requires a different connection to the pool). This affects all miners but what seems to make matters a bit worse for us is the short default reconnect period of 7 seconds. So in version 2.5 we've increased the reconnect period to 20 seconds and added some failover devfee pools. However the network hashrate is increasing so fast that the pools are going to be strained for some time. It is best to have a least a few failover pools to avoid downtime as much as possible.

This realy makes phoenix miner hardly usable now, it makes your IP blocked for ethermine (specific pool location). Even my nvidia claymores stops mining..... 

Quite strange is that it wasnt issue before.

8hr update. i know it's early but i have a few observations. i'll keep updating as i go.

6x RX 570
2x RX 580

Baseline:
Claymore v10.0
222 MH/s
long term pool averages very close to this
1080-1090W from the wall
cards hold 70C with the -tt 70 argument

Phoenix:
v2.4
228 MH/s
power consumption is up to 1090-1100W from the wall
cards are running hotter (79C on some cards) due to no fan control yet, i'm stuck with BIOS control (dont want any other software on the machine, Wattman is a nightmare, and MSI afterburner doesnt seem to work at all)
pool average so far has been trending low ~220 MH/s
this average reported in the terminal window as well as on nanopool.
stale share % is low. 2.18% as reported by Phoenix.

maybe just a bit of bad luck, i'll let it ride and see how it does. seems like a solid product. as long as the dev fee doesnt increase, and the mentioned features get added soon, this will be my new miner software.

is our ip beeing temp banned from ethminer pools cuz of devfee hopping? plz fix. add more time for devfee but more hours till it pops up to avoid it or use other pool for it if possible ty

https://www.reddit.com/r/EtherMining/comments/7to4cs/ethermine_servers_having_issues/


and now not even asia1 server works for me.. wtf\

so i was connected fine to asia1 server, then devfee poped up and said cant connect to asia1. server on wich i was in same console. i think indeed devfee gets us banned on pools or smt.

not 1 pool is working for me wich is impossible, so yeah us phoenix miners are beeing banned at ethermine pools.

switched pools now ok, why we get banned from ethermine?

Same experience as many people here. The miner appears to hash as well as a finely tuned Claymore right out of the box, but (and this is a huge BUT) being blocked on multiple pool servers and losing many hours of uptime for this negates any potential benefit.

I also don't appear to be able to run Phoenix at all anymore after these server issues for some reason. Same config/bat files as I've been using for the last few days, but it starts up and fails right after detecting GPUs. The last line of the log is "main ADL library initialized".

I well and truly wish this was working better because competition is nice and it has definite potential.

Please use the same GPU indexing across the app. miner.exe -list reports GPU indexes 1,2,3,4 whereas miner.exe -di requires 0123.
It would be less confusing if all indexes start from 0, just like in all other miners.

i have changed from ethermine to nanopool. It seems ok now. When devfee start mining, it connect to ethermine pool and disconnect immediately.

UPDATE on Jan 1, 2018: The problem is fully resolved, thanks to ehtermine.org. You can mine Ethereum (including on ethermine and ethpool pools) with all versions of PhoenixMiner. Here is the old message for reference:

Quote
Please avoid using PhoenixMiner on ehtermine or ethpool. It appears that they have something against our miner and this is quite unfortunate because we were using them for devfee.  Sad If you want to use ethermine or ehtpool, please use another miner for now to avoid connection issues. All other pools seem to work fine but the devfee is messing the things up when mining Ethereum. The new version of PhoenixMiner without any usage of ehtermine/ethpool for devfee will be posted here in less than an hour.

Please take our deep apologies about these problems but we had no way to foresee that as we have tested PhoenixMiner privately for many weeks before releasing the first version and we haven't had any issues with them at that time.   Huh

If you mine any coin other than Ethereum you are not affected by this. With the new version, the problem will go away for all other pools except ethermine/ethpool.

PhoenixMiner 2.5d is released (see the first post of the theme for details). If you are using older version of PhoenixMiner and you want to mine Ethereum, you must upgrade to 2.5d to avoid connection issues. Here is the download link:

https://mega.nz/#F!2VskDJrI!lsQsz1CdDe8x5cH3L8QaBw

New in version 2.5d:
  • Removed the usage of ethermine/ethpool for devfee to avoid connection issues
  • Added -eres command-line option to allocate DAG buffers big enough for 2 or more DAG epochs after the current one
  • New OpenCL initialization code for better stability on DAG generation in multi-GPU rigs
  • Stop mining if the connection can't be restored after some time to avoid wasting electricity
  • Recognize failed connection attempt even if the pool doesn't close the socket
  • Longer reconnect delay
  • Several other small changes and impovments, mainly for stability

Yes, new account user posting about PhoenixMiner, hot damn! (Old one got hacked).

I have been using 2.4 for some time, a good 8-10 hours yesterday and got hit with the IP block aswell, I reached out to ethermine.org and just got this reply back:

"The dev fee mining of the Phoenix miner on ethermine triggered our botnet detection and caused a temporary IP block. We have now adjusted our botnet detection system which resolved the problem. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. In general we encourage mining software devs to reach out to us prior to making their software generally available in order to avoid such issues. From the point of view of a mining pool dev-fee miners look exactly the same as botnets."

It appears that the issue even with 2.4 should be resolved in that case, but as a DEV please reach out to them and work with them to solve issues like this.

You most likely did not see this problem as there were too few actually using your miners.

Thank you for sharing this. This seems quite plausible but we don't think that the solution is that simple. After all what's to stop the author(s) of actual botnet to pretend to be miners and ask for directions how to avoid being blocked by their pools?  Roll Eyes

At the moment it seems that all ethermine pools stopped blocking our miner (at least the latest version) but we would advise to use other miner software on these pools for at least 12 hours. This would give us more time to confirm that the problem is really solved.

Hi there,

Just made an account to let you all know that its working great for +21h now with PIRL with 2.4

https://imgur.com/Sfdk7Cf

Better hashrate than Claymore/Ethermine and no error so far. Thanks a lot for this miner!

2.5D seem to have hash rate inconsistensies compared to 2.4 . sometimes hash rate drop big time for some cards, 5mhs or so , compared to 2.4

Can you try and do it on minerpool, please?
