YES! I confirm that 0.3.4 works with AMD Fiji (Fury).
You can add to your benchmark on first page:

AMD R9 Nano: 11.5k (stock clock, same result at 2G or HIGH).
AMD R9 Fury X: 12.3K
AMD Radeon Pro Duo: 23.8k

Great to hear that and thank you for the numbers Smiley Also good to know that the 2G / High deliver approx the same. That was purpose of the changes to bring this a bit closer together, so people with virtual memory problems do not lose any more so much hash speed when using lower work batch sizes.

How can I calculate profitability for this mining?

Every hour there are on average 20 Blocks found with 2.5 MNX each, so 50 MNX per hour created. Of this 40 go to miners and the other 10 to minex bank. So your income is approximately

(Your Hash / Network Hash) * 960 MNX / day

From that still you must subtract pool and miner fee.

For example with rigs doing 190k one has 0.1% of network hash rate and thus gets 0.96 - pool and miner fee per day.
Be careful with mining calculators, many existing forget the MNX going to the minex bank and thus overestimating the income.

Hello, Lolliedieb.

I am trying v 0.34, but the screen got drowned when I started up.
Is this normal? The executable file is "run_miner.cmd".

Also, is it possible to adjust the load with v 0.4?

Hi. I am new to mining. After a whole night of mining with this version, i got this error

https://i.imgur.com/qWyYkFQ.jpg

I am using 2 different AMD gpu, R9 280x and HD 5770 at workbatch of 8. Before I got my R9 280x, I've been mining with lolminer 0.31 and set the workbatch at auto with HD 5770 24/7 without a hiccup.

lolMiner-mnx

-- Announcement Thread --


Hi folks,
this is the thread for announcing lolMiner-mnx for mining MinexCoin (MNX) based on the Equihash 96/5 algorithm (please do not confuse this with Zcash / BitcoinGolds Equihash 200/9).

The current version of the miner is 0.34 beta (April 11, 2018)

Download Links:
[Lin 64] Click me (0.34, Linux) MD5 of package: 4b6a86481177fe4d09e4dcc71fe20828
[Win 64] Click me (0.34, Windows) MD5 of package: 27075cf216144bc4f47fc139b1fdb7e7

What is new (0.34)?

Windows only: A new watchdog.
This version of lolMiner comes with a watchdog script written in power shell. Basically it detects when the miner is stuck / has 0 sol/s and so on and can restart it if required. You can start it by clicking run_miner.cmd while the old run script is also on board.

To configure the new watchdog you have to edit the watchdog-lolminer-v0.34.ps1 file. Especially you should give the name of your config file in the beginning.

The watchdog is able to reboot the rig after a certain number of miner restarts. To enable this feature you have to set $global:allowReboot=$true in the header of the watchdog on line 18. For the reboot feature to be effective you should place the watchdog in your auto-start.

Also you can allow it do do a screen shot on every crash by setting  $global:allowScreenshot=$true on line 19. The parameter in line 18 controls the number of restarts before the watchdog closes itself or reboots the rig.

In order to handle 0 sol/s cases the watchdog will require admin rights on your computer when it starts. This allows the watchdog to reset your GPU drivers before a new restart attempt. Because of this we made the watchdog open source so you can verify it does no harm to your system.

Fixed a bug in stratum code:
Before the miner got stuck when the first pool in list was not avaiable. This is fixed now. Also the miner no longer closes when the first pool reports an authorization of miner problem, but it now tests all failover pools in a row before exiting due to missing authorization

Changed behavior of –exit-on-zero
Well … did not find a better headline for this. The parameter –exit-on-zero does not exist any more / has no effect. Instead when the miner detects that a GPU did not come back from a mining task properly it will print an error message and close. The same is true when a device does not finish a task for more then 30 seconds.

New internal stratum behavior
The stratum code now monitors for shares not tested (if they are below target) or not submitted. When there was no single share tested for a minute or no share submitted for 10 minutes, the miner will stop working and close itself, so the restart scripts or the Windows watchdog can restart it.

New parameter: --continue-on-error
This is the counterpart to the above two described changes. If this parameter is set the miner will continue working even when an error occurred.
New parameter: --stats-digits <number>
This will set the number of digits printed in statistics messages. E.g. if you set it to 0 the decimal delimiter and everything behind will be cut of. The default is 1.

Slight changes in work management
The change is something I wanted to test for 0.4. Basically it now tries to do the transfer from and to the cards asynchronously. Especially on AMD cards this helps reducing the difference in speed between –work-batch HIGH and AUTO and lower values. Higher is still mining faster but the difference to lower values is now smaller

New parameter: --disable-double-buffer
This is the counterpart to the work management change. For some drivers (the open source Clover OpenCL drivers on Linux) this is required because not all drivers support the change.  

New parameter: --disable-suprnova-for-fee
This parameter is meant to remove the suprnova pool from the list of fall-backs for the miners dev fee. Reason is that this pool is blocked in some countries and that the miner may get stuck on an ISP block of this pool.

lolMiner-mnx now got a license.txt file
Well that was required xD

lolMiner-mnx now displays proper AMD device names
Well its not yet perfect, but I think “Radeon RX 470/480; RX 570/580” is better then “Ellesmere” - but I may be wrong ^^

FAQ:
What coins can I mine with the miner?
lolMiner-mnx is a software for stratum pool mining with the Equihash 96/5 algorithm (MARS).  At the moment the only coin featuring this algorithm is MinexCoin (Symbol: MNX).

How to use the miner and what parameters it features?
The miner comes with a detailed description of all parameters in PDF form "lolMiner_readme.pdf".  Since it is 4 pages long (0.32) I won't cite it all here.

Is this miner for CPU / GPU, and for which vendors?
It can be run on any device that can execute OpenCL 1.1 code. So CPU (Intel / AMD) as well as GPU (Intel / Nvidia / AMD). We have to admit that our testing systems are mainly Intel CPU with Nvidia graphics machines, so this is the best tested situation.

Is there any fee on the miner?
Yes, on version 0.3 the dev fee of the miner was lowered to 1.5% that its mining in background. The hash-rate displayed by the miner is netto hash, so you see what you get. The promise is to lower the fee once MNX increases much in price. Also if in any future time the support and development of the miner stops I promise to do a fee-free build and maybe also release the sources.

What are the system requirements for lolMiner-mnx?
You will need an 64 bit system running any Linux distribution or Windows 7 / 8 / 10.
Moreover the miner requires that an OpenCL driver for the devices you want to mine one is installed on your system.
Note that lolMiner utilizes the hardware very well and stresses it a lot.

What hash-rate can I expect from device x?
This massively depends on OS, driver, the hardware itself. Here are some numbers from our testing systems that we collected when testing the miner. If you run it successfully please report in this thread so we can extend the list.

How to monitor fan setting and GPU temperatures in lolMiner-mnx?
Unfortunately that is not yet possible. We are searching for a way doing this vendor and OS independent. Hints how to do this are welcome!

Is there an API?
Not yet, but it is in development. (Hopefully in 0.4)

Are there known problems?
A known problem is that cards that are stressed too much will show 0 sol/s after some time, because they do not complete their OpenCL task and do not give back the handle to the mining software. Lower your OC or try to run the cards cooler when you experience this problems more often.

A second known problem is that the Linux version is much more stable then the Windows one although both versions share the same code. This is due to runtime problems that we still try to fix. If you have massive problems in Windows with the miner give the Linux version a try. A simple and easy to use alternative is HIVE OS, that ships with lolMiner from its 0.31 version. The OS is an easy to use OS for mining rigs on Linux base and offers you right now monitoring and automatic restart capabilities much beyond what most watchdogs can do. And it is also easy to configure and comes with recent graphic drivers. Give it a try.

Is this normal? The executable file is "run_miner.cmd".

Screen should turn off and right on again. That is because the cmd turns of the GPU driver and tries to turn it on again in the watch dog. This helped a bit better in case were 0 sol/s occur to recover without rebooting. If you do not want this, comment out line 257 ("resetGpus") in watchdog-lolminer-v0.34.ps1.

That may also solve the problem for people that use software over clock that is reset by this procedure.



Also, is it possible to adjust the load with v 0.4?

0.4 is almost a complete rewrite of everything because the current design is not bad but not flexible enough for what I want to do in future. Well ... I can give a try to implement that.




Well I think you were lucky you never had that with 0.31. The new watchdog script detects this graphical error messages, kills everything and should be able to get it back to live.

I see, thanks for the reply.
Because the placement of the windows will change, I will comment out the relevant section.

Well apparently, I did experience this in 0.31 that's why I switched to 0.34 thinking maybe it will solve the issue.
What I am saying that I had no problem with 0.31 mining only with HD 5770. But when I am mining together with R9 280x, the problem occur. So I switched to 0.34 hoping the issue will be solved. And no, the watchdog didn't restart the miner. I had to click the cancel button in order for the miner to be restarted. It sucks when this kind of error occur while I am sleeping, my miner got to be idle for a long period of time.

Too much overclock? These newer versions stress gpu more than previous versions, try with less overclock or limit power usage.
Just disable error reporting in windows, then miner will close without error message window.

Update Re: Version 0.34

9 rigs (mostly nvidia, mix of 1080ti 1070ti 1060 3 gb RX 580 8 gb) all running on lolminer 0.34 for approx 24 hours
OS: Windows 10

Not a single issue that I have observed.

No app crashes (version 0.33 crashed on about 1/3 of the rigs every few hours in a somewhat random way)

No 0 sol/s issue

My Hash Rates
1080ti 24500 sols/s
1070ti 18200 sols/s
1060   10000 sols/s
RX580  9900 sols/s

mild overclock on all rigs, nvidia typically 90% power, +100 core, +200 mem (slight variances depending on the card)

Summary of Version 0.34
Rock solid over 24 hours on 9 rigs  Smiley

Is there any way to show rejected shares or perhaps someone can enlighten me if I'm looking at this wrong? I'm running hiveos and its running stable forever now on this miner. However, I just checked the hashrate and coins mined and they don't match. For example, I'm hashing at a steady 84.5kH/s. My rewards are about .33 coins a day the last 2 days, which equates to about 75kH/s. That's a pretty big difference. Anyone know if there is a legitimate reason for this?

Rejected shares are displayedby the miner, i.e. suprnova sends "low difficulty share of ... (some number)" when a send share was rejected. When pool sends an error message its just displayed as it is and if itsresponding with share accepted false it should print "share rejected". As far as I know hive stores the log so you can look it up.

Well your income depends also on pool luck, so at what pool you have been? For example suprnova had 114% luck last 7 days, so one got 14% less income then expected for the week. Last day was better, single days last week were much worse, so the volatility is rather high regarding this aspect.

So in a perfect perfect world..where parking interest stays the same (I know it will not) and price of MNX dose not go up or down here is a calculation of compound yearly interest over 10 year period of parking...with only $200 investment

You can comment out line 257 of the watchdog. Then it will not be reset and your OC settings should remain as they were before.



@Mogul59: It seems it has a problem loading the config file / attaching it to the miners command line call. Can you share your lines 5 to 8 of watchdog-lolminer-v0.34.ps1 ?



By the way, short before the last weekend someone asked me if I could do a version of the miner with ksol/s instead of sol/s. Well not worth to make its own version out of this (or introducing a new parameter at the moment), but who likes to have that too, I build two new executables that do it in ksol-style:

Windows: https://drive.google.com/open?id=122hMmROp_iEPq3Tlrf7wyOjW67ruSYcl
Linux: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zVJovb2h8gXQHdnXxyUAje2r7FrtvXtg

Have fun with it Cheesy

How to run Watchdog?

Just double click on the run_miner.cmd file ... beforehand replace the example config file name in line 6 of the watchdog file by your filename. If you like to run it with OC also comment out line 257 of the watchdog.
Thats it Smiley
