Stared on 2x USB erupters + 1x BFL 30GH/s
What should I expect? ;]
Thanks.

Hopefully... nothing untoward \o/

Anyway I sneaked up fresh binary packages anyway with the -1 suffix since it's an obvious bugfix, but not big enough to warrant a new version.

Do you see a message just before one of them goes zombie about any usb errors in particular?
I've downloaded the latest 3.6.6. cgminer-nogpu.exe but it still gives me a couple of zombies after 10 minutes and also continuous timeouts on another AMU which is NOT one of the zombies.

I've now restarted with a logfile - see below for the exact details.

Another thing I noticed, which may or may not be important:- When I first ran cgminer-nogpu after changing from 3.3.1, I didn't bother to power the hubs off/on, and when cgminer-nogpu started up it turned off all the green LEDs on all 34 erupters - i.e. it found them all - but it was only showing 33 erupters (0-32).  Cgwatcher was reporting 33 devices also.  As far as I could see, shares were being processed from all the AMUs (green flashes) - so what happened to the missing device?  I powered off/on after that and got all 34 devices working as normal.  Not sure if it's important, but I thought it worth mentioning as I haven't seen this behaviour before, as cgwatcher has always reported the correct number of devices, even if they were not showing on the cgminer screen.

Ah, just about to post, and now I have errors and a logfile. Here's an extract:

Just realised that that last run was without the --debug option.  Trying again with --debug and logging turned on :/

3.6.6 reports two zombies (literally) after about 20 minutes. I'll restart it shortly with logging on.

3.6.6 is almost identical to the experimental .exe you last downloaded.

OK, thanks for the info. Behavior seems about the same. Working fine with logging, only running with log for about half an hour so far though.

It's still bizarre that it would not go zombie with logging on only. Either way it will be nice to know what error specifically causes cgminer to consider the device dead. All we can do is keep watching and maybe capture something on the log.

My 3.6.6 test with logging on has run for just under 24 hours  - log size is 1.16GB. Nothing unusual happened - no errors of any kind that I can see, but I haven't read every line of the log.    Smiley

13 AMUs and one BAL, Win 7 64.

I'll shut it down shortly to try your new "little buglet" fix.

So I'm assuming that turning debugging on is having some subtle effect on timing, slowing down writes to the device or something like that, and is indirectly making your devices more stable. So that gives me some other avenues to check out. Give the bugfix a try and I'll make some other binaries trying other shit out, thanks.

Yes, that's how it feels to me.

The bugfix version is up and running now, without logging. It's been fine for the first 10 minutes. If it fails, I'll restart it with logging on.

Edit: AMU 8 went zombie 14 minutes into the run. I'll rerun with logging and see if anything shows up.

If the latest buglet fix does not fix the problem, here are some other binaries to try with various experiments.

Nope, more important to try the other experiments please.

OK. The logged "little buglet" version has been fine for 32 minutes - shutting it down now to try the other stuff.

I've been using cgminer-nogpu. Are these all replacement candidates for it?

Edit: Ah, they must be, judging by the file size. I had been comparing them to an earlier smaller cgminer-nogpu.

Anyway, now running the 4444 version as cgminer-nogpu within 3.6.6 and no problems in the first few minutes.

Edit: I left the room for a while and when I came back AMUs 3,4,5,6 and 12 were zombies. Elapsed time of run about one hour but I don't know exactly when the failures happened.
I'll try the allrw version next.

I can confirm aigeezer's experience so far, and a bit more:

cgminer-4444 : 6 zombies in 1.5 hours
cgminer-allrw : 1 zombie after 9 minutes

logfiles (without --debug) here if required:
 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/44240170/logfile-4444.txt
 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/44240170/logfile-allrw.txt

And so, on to the next one...

Yup, my allrw has one zombie now, AMU 11, after an hour unattended. Not sure when it happened.

Crowdsource debugging - wish I'd had that back in the day.

Trying allwrites next.

Edit: update, 4 zombies in quick succession after about 20 minutes using allwrites (AMU 9-12). On to the "oh" test.

Edit: update, 1 zombie after 7 minutes using "oh" (AMU 10).

I guess I'll turn logging on, superstitiously hoping that will keep the zombie horde at bay until there's some new development.

Yep - There were no zombies when I had logging and --debug on with the new "bugfix" build.  May be that's the way to go.

Edit: Two more results, both no-go's:

cgminer-allwrites : 3 zombies in 38 minutes
cgminer-oh         : 1 zombie in 5 minutes

I have a question because i dont get it to work.

I just setup some USB Erupters for mining PPC instead of PPC.

This is the command line i use right now:
cgminer -o http://stratum.d7.lt:3333 -u user -p pass

Everything runs ok but my GPU also starts to mine. What do i add to disable my GPU from mining ?

Nono, if it's working fine for you, stick with it. These are attempts to find the problem with aigeezer's

Thanks very much for trying all those, guys. I'll see what else I can come up with, but this will be the only way I'll be able to find it since you can reproduce it so easily.
