Hello everyone,
sorry to bother, but this question just can't get out of my mind.
I've got 3 servers now mining.(I don't have to pay for the electricity, of course)
One with 2 cores, one with 8 cores, and one with 16 cores.
I know CPU mining is much slower than GPU mining, but I have no choice Undecided
Anyway, the problem is:
My 8 core server, installed with Windows Server 2008 can hash up to 2XM/s

But my 16 core and 2 core server, installed with FreeBSD, can only hash about 4~5M/s in total...
http://i1102.photobucket.com/albums/g452/ollie0108/16.jpg
Is my setting wrong? Or it's because the OS are different?
Hope y'all can help me out Embarrassed
Thanks Tongue

Yea, that's doesn't sound right. Are you sure that the linux server is mining from both the 2 core and 16 core. With that slow mining, it almost seems that its only mining using the 2 core only.

I thought the thread number is same as the working cores?
How can I make sure Huh

does your install see all the cores ? (16)?  if so, did you throw it the -t 16 for 16 threads?

i get about 25mh/s on my dual QX9775's at 3.2 (8 threads)

I didn't throw -t 16 to it, but it seems like the program did that for me because it showed
[2011-08-18 10:17:38] 16 miner threads started, using SHA256 'c' algorithm.
Don't know if I got it wrong Undecided

And I just tried to throw -t 16 to it, doesn't change anything Sad
Are you using Jgarzik + FreeBSD also?
