Are any poclbm processes actually running and staying idle or are they simply not starting in the first place?
I must apologize for my lack of Linux skills, I have no idea how to monitor running processes under Linux and therefore no idea how to check if they start at all.

My GF thinks I'm useless, if you think otherwise and can proof it to her, please do so and donate:

Hey Bloodred would it possible to add an option to set the CPU affinity for the poclbm processes?
Java can't do that, but on Windows 7 you can use the start command to force affinity. I'll upload some .bat files shortly.

@Folax Sadly I don't know how to do that either, I don't have much Linux experience and have even forgotten most of that.

I don't have much experience with Linux either... but if I remember right you can type "top" in to a command prompt and it will show you the top processes. I don't remember the command to show all the processes though.

In Ubuntu you would select from the drop down menus at the top:  System -> Administration -> System Monitor

Processes shows running tasks,
Resources shows (among other things) network utilization.

Why don't you try running poclbm on its own and see if it runs OK.  This way you eliminate one variable (CP).  Be sure to pass it the correct parameters.

Nice program for the low price i figured id get it and play with it is their anyway to track how many hashes im getting out of my cards.  And i got 3 gpus but only 2 are being used by it and mtred keeps giving a error even tho some times it works.

[Miner2] mtred.com:8337 Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC 0 2
[Miner2] mtred.com:8337 Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC 1 2
[Miner2] mtred.com:8337 Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC 2 2

type info in the command window. it will give you your average hash rate in your current pool, not to be confused with your actual hash rate at that instant, so the number might be smaller than expected. i believe that's how it works at least

can you connect to any other pools?

it sounds like you removed the code to tell CP to use all 3 of your gpu's. each gpu needs a miner= line in the cfg file for CP to use it. what exactly did removing the other 2 fix for you? the connection issue with mtred is unrelated to how many gpu's you use

OK, I got it kinda got it working using the start command with the start w/ logging bat. It's setting the affinity but logging isn't working. I have no idea what I'm doing... lol so hopefully you can come up with one that works.

Lol i figured it out was a mistake on me when i made the 3rd acount on mtred i had a typo.

Try adding this in a new .bat file (or just run it from cmd while in the CherryPicking directory):
Code:
@echo off
start /affinity 1 java -jar CherryPicking.jar -logging -stats
exit
This should force affinity to CPU0. Note that 1 isn't the CPU number, it's a bitmask.

Thanks Bloodred! It works perfectly.

When I added Device=0,1 to use both my cards, it says "0,1 is not a number, using 0".

What am I doing wrong here?

From the read me:

Device - a number which tells the hopper which device it should start mining with. Default is 0 and you probably only need to change it to 1 if poclbm sees your CPU as device 0.


I don't even use that argument... in my settings I just have:

;Device=

and it works fine. Try it like that or with Device=0 and see if all your cards are working.

You only need to put device=0. It will use any gpu starting with 0 and going up to however many gpus you have. You don't need to explicity tell it to use anything. Leaving it blank at device= will default to 0 anyway

That only tells CherryPicking what device to start mining with and really has no use if your GPUs start with device 0. It's only useful if your CPU is identified as device 0. To add more GPUs, add a Miner= line in each pool .cfg for each GPU with the required mining credentials to mine on that pool. CherryPicking will use as many GPUs as there are valid Miner= lines. Note that I highly recommend having the same number of Miner lines in all your pool .cfg files.

im using your cfg zip but these 4 pools dont seem to work but i can get to them by the website.

* 15unitedminers
* Update error or pool considered invalid (lagging or down)

* 16BitcoinPool
* Update error or pool considered invalid (lagging or down)

* 17btcserv
* Update error or pool considered invalid (lagging or down)

* 9nofee

So, I've checked the pools out.

unitedminers seems to have flaky at best performance, there's something wrong on their side (lots of network timeouts and such). Not much I can do about that.

BitcoinPool works for me with the exact same .cfg from the archive, are you sure you haven't changed/deleted something by accident?

btcserv have changed their hash rate display from MHash/s to GHash/s, here is the new .cfg (will be added to the archive but just copy-paste the content for the time being). Note that there is a JSON .cfg available for btcserv as well, which you should use if it works well for you as it causes much, much less unneeded traffic for the server. This is simply provided as an alternative:
Code:
;BTCSERV
;Home Page: http:/btcserv.net
Type=PROP
Host=btcserv.net
Port=8335
JSON=http://btcserv.net
HashEx1=</span>[ \.0-9]+GHash/s <span>
HashEx2=[ \.0-9]+
HashRemove=
SharesEx1=</span>[ ,0-9]+shares <span>
SharesEx2=[ ,0-9]+
SharesRemove= ,
Div=1

nofee have both changed their URL and seem to be doing shady stuff with the statistics, namely randomly reporting hash rates of 0 which makes CherryPicking consider the pool invalid (mining on a pool where you're the only miner is solo mining and cannot bring you any profit). I don't know if this is an error on their end or intentional in order to mess with hoppers, in any case we have to wait a few days to see if it clears up, if not I'll see if there's something I could do to bypass their limitations. Here's the .cfg that accounts for the URL change:
Code:
;NoFeeMining.com
Type=PROP
Host=nofeemining.appspot.com
Port=8332
JSON=http://nofeemining.appspot.com/api.php
HashEx1="poolspeed":\d+\.?\d*
HashEx2=\d+\.?\d*
SharesEx1="poolRoundShares":\d+
SharesEx2=\d+
Div=1

I changed/updated my nofee .cfg a few days ago and it worked fine for about a day before the errors started again so maybe it will clear up...

What about LowCost? They seem to be delaying their stats or something, since CP always start mining on it around 0.8 or something like that.
