I'm having some odd issues since a while.

Running 3 BlueFuries and 1 BiFury USB miners (WinXP SP3), my cgminer started crashing every few days some weeks ago.
Looking at the Task Manager, I found out its RAM usage is increasing all the time, presumably running into some kind of RAM limitations (it's an older centrino notebook with 1.5GB of RAM).
After a day, I see it at about 60MB use of RAM, a day later it's at ~150MB, another day later roughly 350MB+ (which is about the area when it becomes very crash-prone, including using any of its basic menu functions that then can easily crash the application).
Generally its RAM consumption increases at about 4KB/sec.

The BiFury firmware was updated to V1.3 90deg version, which didn't change anything basically. The cgminer directory and executable are manually excluded from any antivirus scan that could interfere.

Could it be recent cgminer versions have some form of memory leak when operating this combo? I remember running just the 3 BlueFury devices for weeks (cgminer 3.8.4) never had this issue.
Only after adding the BiFury, I experienced this behaviour, so I think it's possible that it comes from the BiFury code portion running.
(so far I ran 3.8.4, 3.8.5 (BiFury added), 3.9, 3.10 and now 3.12).

Since the notebook is old, however, and if noone else is seeing such issues.... Could be my hardware of course. It's running pretty cool and the Notebook hardware basically is mostly idling along, so at least it's clearly not running into heat issues. Miners are cooled with a big USB fan and operated off an external powered USB hub.

I'm not running your hardware so there may be memory leak associated with your driver, I don't know.  But I'm running 29 BE's on Win7 w/512MB RAM with no issues on CGMiner 3.11.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.

A: Top-posting.

Hi,

I got some LIBUSB_ERROR_TIMEOUT errors while using cgminer 3.12.0 with :
- Windows 7 (64) ;
- Powered USB hub ;
- USB fan ;
- 1x Bi*Fury ;
- 1x Bitfury BF1 ;

This setup can run for some hours (2-3) with this output :
Code:
BF1 0:                | 2.175G/2.166Gh/s | A:3278 R:42 HW:230 WU: 30.5/m
BXF 0:  49.4C         | 5.275G/5.232Gh/s | A:7828 R:48 HW:  0 WU: 73.6/m

At some time, both USB miners stop working. Output is then :
Code:
BF1 0:                |  3.000/2.014Gh/s | A:1444 R:20 HW:114 WU:28.1/m
BXF 0:  51.6C         | 30.81K/4.756Gh/s | A:3486 R:50 HW:  0 WU:66.5/m
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2014-02-01 20:04:38] BXF 0: Error -7 sending BXFWork sent 0 of 163
[2014-02-01 20:04:40] BXF 0: Error -7 sending BXFWork sent 0 of 163
[...]

Both the Bi*Fury and the Bitfury BF1 can run alone for days without errors. The problem occurs if I try to plug only 1 of the USB miners on the hub and the other on another USB connector (directly on the motherboard).
With cgminer 3.12.0, I can run for hours, but with an older version (3.8.4) I only could only run them together for minutes.

I will try to take some time to run them on my rpi instead (maybe some bugs with usblib on Windows ?), but if anyone has any clue on how to avoid the problem...

I had this happen a while back. My windoze 7 machine with 12 gb of ram would run out of memory and eventually blue screen after about two weeks plus. Win XP and NT2000 in about a week would BSod as well. Drove me nuts. Found out in resource monitor that killing java.exe would allow the machine modified mem usage not to expand. So java was leaking, and though it was not using an an unusually high amount of ram it was also not letting go of what it had used making it modified. Solved by going to Sun Microsystems site and using their utility to uninstall previous versions of java and installing the newest one. Hope this helps.  Smiley

Hm, I don't even have Java installed on that machine, so that can't be the problem in my case...

You don't need Java.  But if you have it make sure it's up to date as it's one of the most vulnerable spots for virus and worm exploits.

Watch out, os2, Kano is about to call you a low life because you don't use the supported hardware.  Have you tried any of the other mining software? you will find much more helpful developers on ANY other mining solution.

Best of luck dealing with this DOUCHEBAG.

I have cgminer-3.10.0 on Fedora 19 with AntMiner.  (I had to add --enable-bitfury to configure for it to compile - otherwise it would miss mcp2210.c.)  It is mining at 600Mh/s, not the vaunted 1.6Gh/s, and it is barely warm (unlike the block erupters, which get quite hot in operation).

(5s):631.4M (avg):378.7Mh/s | A:349  R:9  HW:32  WU:0.0/m

Also, it is detected as USB1.1, not 2.0 (other 2.0 devices plugged into the port are detected as 2.0).

There is no official Antminer U1 support in cgminer yet, since the creators of Antminer never contacted the cgminer devs with code and/or hardware before it was released.  The developers just recently received units they can develop for, and so Antminer support is likely eventually forthcoming.  There are some forks of cgminer out there that have implemented an Antminer driver already though, though you'll have to look around for 'em and they're generally unsupported.

Ah, well I am impressed that with no software changes it does the work of 2 Block Erupters at less than half the power.  So with a little code merging and/or waiting, it should do the work of 5 Block Erupters.
Someone want to point me to the best current cgminer code for them please?

Sure, happy to... it's right here:

Dropping GPU support was well documented in this thread and even given about a years warning.
Is there a legitimate reason why you can't read?

Oh, that's a genius approach... attack me because I didn't read this 716 page thread.

You are a jackass.
...
Maybe you could change the FIRST PAGE to reflect the fact that you have RECENTLY abandoned GPU's and Scrypt?   JACKASS!
As stated by others, since you don't bother to keep up on what has been happening with cgminer, simply read every title of every post ...

So anyway, your solution to software that has been provided to you for years for free to make you money, is to call the main developer of that free software that you have used for years ... an idiot.

You sir are indeed a lowlife.

Do you read a wall of text each time you visit a 720 page thread?  No?  Then FUCK YOU DOUCHEBAG!


For anyone else looking for a solution that anticipated the future you should try BFGMINER or SGMINER.

Honest to god, why would ANYONE support an asshat like Kano?  It's beyond me.








could you please stop spamming this thread? go away an whine somewhere else...

Almost no one does.
Have you ever donated to me for the free software you've used (for years)? I'd doubt it.
A few people do on occasion.

The main way I get anything from my work on cgminer is from the hardware I receive from the companies who make it or the people who want me to add/improve support for specific hardware.
Every single time that has of course been FPGA/ASIC BTC mining hardware.

GPU mining on BTC is a complete loss to anyone doing it and a waste of time.

The fact that you would rant and rave like a lunatic, because the free software you use, no longer wishes to support alt-coins, is beyond ridiculous.
Then you run off to the thread of a guy who spreads lies with abandon, all over BTC, and has done so for years, and call ck an idiot there.
Again - indeed you are a lowlife.

Your posts in here, that everyone can see and read at the moment, simply make you out to being one of the biggest lowlifes on the forum at the moment - and I'd not be surprised if most would agree with me on that.

Yea, actually I did.  And advocated for it's use.  Evangelized.  Helped others in it's use in this very thread among others.

  And you spit at me because I chose not to read 720 pages.

Fuck you, douchbag.

And just FYI there are hundreds of coins these days.  Enjoy living in the past with the great Satoshi.  I can't imagine your stupidity in abandoning all the people who are the former user base of the now tarnished cgminer.

And now you choose to support a developer who uses his pools hash rate to attack and destroy the alt coins you want to promote? shutdown a alt/scamcoin?

Edit: Trying to make a my statement more accurate.  My point was not to accuse Luke-Jr of wrongdoing, but that he may not exactly be an Altcoin proponent either.

So what is the process for adding new parts to this?  We've got the Coincraft A1 in the wild, and some of the simpler DIY boards are just USB-SPI bridges.  Zefir did some great work on the bitmine cgminer branch, but the base code was a bit dated.  Do we fork/branch, port the A1 bits, then see what it takes to pull/merge it back?

Long term getting code for new devices into master cgminer code will guarantee the best long term support for the devices. Clean up the code to merge with current cgminer git master code using the driver model all other devices follow, following the code style for content/code style, make sure the code doesn't try to change other aspects of core cgminer code that affect all other users, and push it onto git, asking for a git pull request. The code will be reviewed, a few changes will likely be recommended, and after the changes are made, I'd be happy to just pull the code in as is into cgminer. All maintenance and development becomes the responsibility of the person pushing the code for that driver, but if done in a seamless way, no changes to any of the rest of cgminer will likely ever have any detrimental effect on the code, so only improvements and bugfixes will be required. The other option is to send one of the developers, i.e. myself or kano, a piece of the hardware, along with sample code, and we will make the code mergeable with current cgminer and develop and maintain it further. I personally am currently drowning in code and hardware so there will likely be delays if this is done to me specifically unless the code is very close to mergeable anyway.

Just coz you say something over and over again, doesn't make the fact that you attacked and shut down an altcoin with your pool suddenly become false.
I'm sure your silly religion says that if you lie about something it's wrong to do that ... consider that next time when you lie about something.
You do it quite regularly, so you may not notice it, but if you do notice, remember that it's wrong to do it and try not to.
Also your fake god doesn't make sure everything you say is true - you do need to blame yourself for all your actions.
It's better, in your case, to think along the lines of everything you say is a lie, then it will relate to reality more.
Though, reality is something you have trouble with ... so that may not help either.

Here - I'll give you an example to mull over ... and if you can see the problem, there might be some hope for you in the future ...

Alright.  That seems fair enough.  We'll take a crack at it, and if it look to be too much for our timeframe, we'll poke a couple developers.  Thanks for clearing that up.
