works fine on 18khash per card apart from the occasional shutdowns of the miner.

Right now working on 0.22. That one will bring a switch to bring back the 0.13 work loop as an option. This allows all for which the old version works better to switch to newer version and to profit from the other fixes.

Is this miner id for dual both cpu and gpu? I just want to try your mining in some of my rig,

I can not recommend doing this on CPU. Because if you use the CPU a lot the mining speed of GPU will go down. And power efficiency of CPU is much worse. Even an GTX 1030 does more sol/s then any CPU I know (well maybe except for 16+ core server CPUs ^^)

connected monitor, monitor emulator does not help!!

It seems we have two bugs with NVidia Windows driver here. One that makes the GPU to shut down completely (thats with zero monitor detected) and the second when there is no 3D App running lolMiner is not detected as program that requires the GPU to stay on 3D clock rates. I do not know if Nvidia workstation drivers may help here... we require a deeper investigation of this.

Card: 1x GTX 1050ti
         4x RX 480 8gb

I have no clue how to run it all, I made my experiment on bat file but the miner got some error..
Can you be more specific about the error? Best way is to run the miner with --list-devices to see the order of the OpenCL platforms. It should list at least two (one Nvidia CUDA, one Advances Micro Devices... ). Maybe even three if you have an Intel IGPU installed. Then best run two instances of the miner, one for the single GTX 1050ti and one for the RX cards (here all 4 can run in one instance). In the readme are some lines how to select platform and devices.

when i set this on rigs miner use cpu for mining not gpu ?
See the answer right above. With --device and --platform you can control the OpenCL driver which cards to use.

I hope you develop lolminer is the same top hashrate for Fury  Wink

Can not guaranty that Fury will be fastest in future versions, but I did not forget AMD for sure. 0.3 or 0.4 will come with performance tweaks, lets see how much I can do Smiley

After 24 hours all four Nvidia rigs stable on Linux, Windows 7, and Windows 10. Great job with .21!!
Still it is not perfectly bug free, but definitely a large step forwards. Will see if I can do better next versions Smiley

With version 0.21, titan xp works flawlessly : 24500 s/s.
Cpu load is now low (rounded to 0 for my xeon 18 cores : less than with any other previous version). In my pc, there is a vega mining cryptonigth and 17 cores of the xeon mining a cpu algo coin.

Congratulation dev!

So, this time a minor update I guess, but it may improve the user experience.

Time for version 0.22  

Here are the download links:
Linux 64: Click me (v0.22)
Windows 64: Click me (v0.22)

Lets see what I have for you today:

Introduce the ability to use configuration files
Use "--use-config <fileName>" to load your configuration from file instead of from command line. This also makes maintaining multiple copies of lolMiner easier. See the example file to see how these files are written.

Use "--enable-time-print" to perpend the current local time to the statistics output
Well do not have more for that, do I? Ok: if you enable this HH:MM:SS in your local system time is printed before the stats.

Enable v0.13 thread model by "--use-alt-mine-thread"
This will enable the work handling of lolMiner-mnx 0.13 but with all the other bug fixes and improvements still enabled. This will deactivate multi-gpu support, so only the first device listed in --device will be used. By default the Nvidia CPU load fix (hotfix) is enabled, see below how to disable this. This option will brings back support for Intel devices.

New expert switch "--set-sleep-duration <number>"
This switch controls the new thread model introduced by 0.21.  It sets the time span between polling the GPUs for completed work in microseconds. Lower values may stabilize the performance, but also increase CPU load for all vendors. Setting the value to 0 will make lolMiner-mnx use one full CPU core by 100% for handling all devices. If this is used with "--use-alt-mine-thread" it will disable the Nvidia hotfix. Higher values reduce CPU load but may reduce hash rate. Default is 1000 microseconds = 1 millisecond.

[Windows] Hibernating is now prevented
lolMiner-mnx now reports Windows that it does not want Windows to switch to power save, hibernate and switching screen of automatically.

Improved thread safety
I inserted some mutex so most critical parts that are shared can now be accessed only by one thread. This should improve stability and reduce double free errors that make the miner crash.

I will difinetly try this one today, thanks Lolliedieb for you hardwork, really appreciate it!   Wink

By the way, how about the speed? is it also increase it?

Thanks, that is awesome!

Worked like charm. For 5 seconds. Then the pool went down.

Will report more once I can run it again. Is it possible to combine the "set sleep duration" with the v0.13 thread model?

Anybody know what I could be doing wrong? My console just keeps saying "Warnign section 1"

My config file is basically the following:
Quote
### Device configuration
--platform 1                          # Insert the index of the platform you want to run on. Run lolMiner-mnx.exe --list-devices
                                      # to see all available platforms and the available devices for each platform
--device 0,1,2,3,4,5                            # Insert your devices to run the miner here. For multiple GPU pass a comma separated list, e.g.: 0,1 for using two GPUs 

--set-work-batch 2                   # Uncommend this line to set the work batch size. Default is 2 which is ideal for Nvidia customer GPUs.
                                      # For AMD GPUs try higher values, e.g. 8 or 12 to optimize performance. Higher values increase GPU memory use of lolMiner-mnx.


### Display log configuration
#--set-short-stats-interval 5         # Uncommend to set the time interval (seconds) between the short term performance output. Set 0 to disable the output.    
#--set-long-stats-interval 10         # Uncommend to set the time interval (seconds) between the long term performance output. Set 0 to disable the output.
                                      # The value will also determine the length of the benchmark mode
--enable-time-print                  # Uncommend to allow lolMiner-mnx to print the system time in HH:MM:SS format before each performance output.



### Expert parameters - handle with care
#--use-alt-mine-thread                # Enables the mine thread handling of lolMiner-mnx 0.13. This will disable multi-GPU support.
                                      # Therefore only the first number in --device is handled. The Nvidia load hotfix is enabled by default.
                  # Currently Intel devices are only working with this switch enabled.

#--set-sleep-duration 1000            # Sets the time span between polling the GPUs for completed work in microseconds. Lower values may stabilize
                                      # the performance, but also increase CPU load for all vendors. Setting the value to 0 will make lolMiner-mnx use one full
                                      # CPU core by 100% for handling all devices. If this is used with "--use-alt-mine-thread" it will disable the Nvidia hotfix.
                                      # Higher values reduce CPU load but may reduce hash speed. Default is 1000 microseconds = 1 millisecond.

Hello out there,

This is because somehow suprnova is down and I had a bug in the fallback routine for collecting dev fee ... my fault Sad

This version here will fix it for Linux:

I have suggested this before. But now with suprnovas mnx pool down it is more important than ever.

Would you PLEASE stop the miner from reconnecting endlessly?
Or just implement "--retries" argument for how many times you would like it to retry, like I suggested before.
The quickest solution is to not have the miner reconnect at all and just exit so we could do something, where now the miner just stops ALL mining and waits forever for the pool to be up again, and hopefully it does.

I really don't want to have a script pinging the pool I am using all day again, just so I can exit the miner if it goes down, to switch pools automatically.

By the way, how are the newer versions of the miner?

I am still using 0.12 as they update cut my hashrate in half when afk.
Also the filesize of the update is about 3 times they size of the previous, 0.12. Dunno about the newest versions though.

Well this is better in 0.2 versions ... they handle this much more graceful! But stratum connection will get a rework next versions. Would like to do fall-back pool and ssl support Smiley

By the way (see two posts above): With that versions it now should work on the pools that are still online!

So I am checking the fixed version now. Speed is a bit better than before, but still about 20% less than v0.13. It appears to be related to the CPU, any change to the CPU affinity in the task manager heavily affects the hashrate. Still, I did not have the problem with v0.13. I'll be sticking with the new version for now and see what it can do over time.

btw. Any chance to include a logfile, to see hashrates and how often the miner had to restart?

Windows 10 and version .21 now enables me to run 2 x 1070 at the same time which is great but they only do half the speed.

So two kards = half speed or two cards = same speed as with one? What happens with two distinc inszances of the miner vs one instance running both cards?
I can run two cards at full speed with v0.21 but as soon as I log out of teamviewer the hash rate halves straight away. If i log back in it goes back to full speed. Any ideas?

I'm also having the same issue. I do have dummy hdmi plugged in to the integrated video card. I hope this gets fixed soon.

Same problem. When connected through Teamviewer I get full hash. When disconnected hash drops to half. This is with a monitor connected, so that cannot be the problem.
