Any way to overclock an asic such as a BFL 5Ghs?
Flash it, but you need to purchase certain hardware and download software to do it. There are forum threads here showing you how.

Just did mine.  Humming nicely at ~8.5Gh/s now.  Life is good.

Thanks Smiley
Thanks!  That would be me (in case anyone wants to get in touch with me via the forums).

Now I can't wait for the next version to test out all my deployment code Smiley

I've just started mining with half a dozen USB Erupters on Slush's pool (Ubuntu 11.10). Cgminer periodically stops/crashes. When it does, I can't enter anything into terminal, so have to start a new terminal and restart cgminer. I've gone through the readme but can't figure out a way to make it restart automatically when this happens.

Any tips apreciated

are you using active cooling on the USB erupters?  if not that might be the source of your crashing.  (just a guess, I don't do linux)

I mine at Kano's Pool because it pays the best and is completely transparent!  Come join me!

I found https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=68901.0 yesterday. Pooling to bitminter and slush's nicely with the new config file.

Yeah. My fan only only arrived today, so we'll see if that helps, but I'm sceptical. The whole thing stops all at once, whereas with overheating I would have expected individual Erupters to stop without necessarily shutting cgminer down


This https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=51622.msg615755#msg615755    is the closest I've found to any sort of automated reconnection. I think it's for a screen thing or something, which I'm not familiar with. I don't know how to alter or implement that script for auto-restart of failed cgminer

How can I do 75%/45 minutes pool 0 , 25%/15 minutes pool 1 , is that round robin.

You cannot.

That degree of control no one has been able to prove to me there are any circumstances that it serves any useful purpose, so I never bothered to implement such tight scheduling over pool share submission. Optimising your share submission to not lose work and/or sharing to minimise variance are all you need.

I believe what you want looks like:
cgminer --rotate 15 -o http://pool0:port -u pool0username -p pool0password  -o http://pool0:port -u pool0username -p pool0password  -o http://pool0:port -u pool0username -p pool0password -o http://pool1:port -u pool1usernmae -p pool1password

This would be the only real reason, I guess:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=78031.0

In other words, if you are mining at two pools and one is large and one is small, you actually might be increasing you variance (vs just mining at the large pool alone) if you mine at them 50/50.

But to be super useful, you'd want something like "BALANCE" combined with some API options to change the ratios on the fly so that some outside script could periodically use pool APIs to determine total hashrate and then use cgminer API to tweak the ratios appropriately.

seems like i have to go back to bfgminer Sad tried cm1 with --icarus-options with different configs baud:4:1 baud:2:1 baud:1:1 and still crashes... it seems its the dynamic bitstream...

oh well... thanks for the efforts... when i figure out how to change the bitstream to makomk it should be ok to come back Sad

Yep there are multiple CM1 bitstreams.
Since I don't have a CM1 I've not tried to handle the non-Icarus bitstreams.
Send me a CM1 and I'll get it working ...
