Bug report:

Not sure if there is a place I should report bugs or if this bug has been reported but I can't be bothered to find out so I figured reporting it here is better than nothing.

Bug:
MH/s between GPU0 and GPU1 is flipped. Everything else is correctly matching the right GPU but apparently my 6950 is giving me 25MH/s and my 6450 is giving me 369MH/s. I upgraded from version 2.7.5 where this issue didn't exist.
I have not tested just running one of my cards or with more than 2 cards.
6950 appears in the top line and 6450 appears in the bottom line. while the MH/s are reversed.

Setup:
CGminer 2.9.7
Windows 8
GPU0 6950 unlocked xfx xxx
GPU1 6450 gigabyte passive
MSI motherboard with 2x pci-e 16x 8x 6950 in top slot

I've uploaded some fresh debug builds for windows here for those who want to try and help me get debug information:

http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/debug/

These builds have optimisations disabled to hopefully try and get meaningful debug information out of them. It's annoying how hard windows builds are to debug...

Oh and the libcurl dll included in the 2.10.0 archive is already one with the fix from 2.9.7 (even though it's a different size) so there's no point trying a different dll if you are getting crashes.

I got my very first crash on 2.9.7 this morning.  Win7 32 bit.

I just updated to 2.10.  My crashes have been few and far between.  So I'm not even sure it's a CGMiner problem or not.  I'll keep an eye on it and see if I have any reproducible problems.

Thanks for your effort,
Sam

Yeah, 2.9.7 crashed on me as well this morning.  I don't know why, just got a nice Windows error and close program.  Trying 2.10.0 now.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

I'm saw the same thing today, simultaneous crash on all rigs upon Stratum detection of a new block.

Thought it was Windo'hs Update at first, but that's disabled on rigs that still crashed.

Nice! I should have been doing this the whole time. I am running it like this now and will let you know if it crashes again. So far it's been going 6 hours and no problems yet.

Yeah, 2.9.7 crashed on me as well this morning.  I don't know why, just got a nice Windows error and close program.  Trying 2.10.0 now.


Was that 2.9.7 or 2.9.7-1?

I have a bunch of modminers running on ubuntu and on the new version 2.10.0 the display is showing each fpga individually and I can't see all of them.  Also the accept share display isn't showing due to the fact that there is to many devices.  Is there anyway to fix this.  Thanks.

compact mode, or use more remote monitoring with something like miner.php

How do you run compact mode?  I never had to use this option before.

Yeah I noticed the same.  All of mine crashed at the same time upon detection of a new block.

BTW, thanks ckolivas for the debugger.  I'll be sure to give that a go in case any of my rigs crash again.

From the command line:
--compact           Use compact display without per device statistics

Or from the menu while it's running, press D for display and you'll see it there.
It does get rid of all the device stats tho.

Sure. Unfortunately 9 times out of 10 I don't get useful information from windows crashes even with the debug version  Undecided

I like the debug version of cgminer aimed to collect some info on crash.
It doesn't crash Smiley

There's an interesting thought, and it's not the first time this has been encountered - it could well be the optimised build that leads to crashes only.

Thanks for all this effort to find out ....

anyway, as GPU mining is not profitable anymore, I'm using my rig to heat my office room with "zero profit mining" ...... until summer ... then it will be time to shut off this nice hobby... until coin price jumps.

As a windows (BFL) miner and the issues described I'm curious as to the difficulty to set up the following configuration....

Win OS running Virtual Box which runs a Linux OS, running CGminer?

Thoughts? Easy to configure COM ports etc.? Performance Concerns?

I might give it a go in any case but it could be a "work around" of sorts for windows based miners for the time being?
