lolMiner

-- Announcement Thread --


Hi there,
this is the announcement thread for lolMiner 0.5, a multi algorithm Equihash miner with focus on AMD GPUs (OpenCL based).
Note it will run on most Nvidia GPUs, too but the speed and stability may vary. Hope to improve this in the future.

Currently with this miner you can mine 4 different algorithms:
         Algorithm    Req GPU Mem    Coins that use it
Equihash96/5
500MB
Minex Coin (MNX)
Equihash144/5
3G
E.g. ANON, BTG, BTCZ,XSG, ZEL and many more!  
Equihash192/7
4G
Zero (ZER), Genesis (GENX) & Zero Classic
Equihash210/9
1G
Aion Mainnet

Download:

From Dropbox:
[Lin 64] Click me (0.5 Linux)
[Win 64] Click me (0.5 Windows)
(More Mirrors to come)

Usage:

The first way to use the miner is from command line interface. The syntax is

Code:
Linux: ./lolMiner --coin <shortCut> --pool <poolAddr> --port <portNumber> --user <Wallet or user name> --pass <userPassword>
Windows: lolMiner.exe --coin <shortCut> --pool <poolAddr> --port <portNumber> --user <Wallet or user name> --pass <userPassword>

Here the <shortCut> parameter is a short name for the coin you want to mine. For example inserting AION will configure the miner to mine AION, MNX for MinexCoin and so on.
For more shortcuts and more options please read the lolMiner_manual.pdf shipped with the miner.
lolMiner 0.5 supports fail-over pools, configuration files (easy sharing between Rigs and easy switching between coins), automatic worker names, a simple statistics reading API, logging to text file and many more features.


Estimated Performance:

Most of this measurements were reported by community members in this thread. Results may vary a bit depending on clocks, driver version and operation systems:

GPU              
   Equi 96/5
   Equi 210/9
   Equi 144/5
   Equi 192/7
Vega64
~24.000 sol/s
~155.0 sol/s
  ~37 sol/s
~22.5 sol/s
580      
~13.800 sol/s
~107.5 sol/s
  ~25 sol/s
~15.5 sol/s
560      
  ~6.900 sol/s
    ~54 sol/s
~12.5 sol/s
 ~7.5 sol/s
(More data to come when available)

Known issues and troubleshooting:

Problem: The miner crashed at startup when creating memory buffers or miner ends up with 0 sol/s from start.
Solution: The AMD driver requires on start as many MB of system memory as it will need on all started GPUs together. Increase the fixed page file size (Windows) or swap partition size (Linux) to give the rig more virtual memory.

Problem: The miner gets unstable or slow when using more then 4-5 GPUs
Solution: Start two instances and use the --devices parameter (command line) or "DEVICES" (config file) to point one instance to the first n GPUs and the second to the next. For most systems that will work better.

I'll test this new version and report the AMD results I get once the Windows option is available for testing.  Keep up the good work and don't forget to get some sleep.

I just added the Windows binary  Cheesy

Only thing I observed there is that the API in Windows seems to be a bit unstable - at least the Api shut down from time to time (this does not affect mining itself). I will look into that Smiley

Is there any sense to mine Equihash 144.5 coins on AMD GPUs?
Or this algo is not profitable on AMD GPUs?

I just updated the files, fixing a glitch that made the miner hang on startup on some systems.

Nice, when Aion 210.9?

When 144.5 AMD code got quicker Wink

speed for Equihash  144,5 is around 10-15 sol  for now is true, need dev tune up.

for Equihash  96,5 (MNX) must be 1000-1100 sol

Is there a way to see the intensity setting and a way to adjust it?
Running miner on 1080ti even with only 50% TPD it is using 250 watts per card..power usage is off the hook.

The 10 sol/s for 570 and Equihash 144.5 seem normal (for 96.5 it should be 10k), but the hangup is not - for how long did it mine before crash?

Windows version is not working for me.
The program self opens continually, thousands of times, eating all the computer resources & finally you have to do a hard reset.

What options do you search for? Anything specific?


at least, I would have appreciated the following options (which were present in v0.34):
-max-connection-Attempts
-set-reconnection-timer
-enable-time-print
some options that I will appreciate:
possibility to generate a log file
set maximum temperature threshold
