running ubuntu 18.04.1 with 13 RX570 (8GB) cards.

There is something seriously wrong with the Equihash 96.5 (Minexcoin) algo on v0.4
If I use the WORKBATCH:  HIGH setting, the hashrate slows down to a crawl, also of note is that the power draw of each GPU is around 40 watts (it's normally 95 watts when mining). Something just isn't working right with the HIGH setting.
If I use WORKBATCH:  MEDIUM, the reported hashrate (on http://eu.minexpool.nl) is around 10-15% higher then with v.034
However, it goes through these long periods where very little crypto is actually paid out from the pool. I don't understand how the listed balance for this rig is consistently really low, but yet the hashrate is high.

Switched back to v.034 for now.
v.034 doesn't have issues with '--set-work-batch HIGH ' , and it gets paid more from the pool than with v.04


the same thing Sad

I tried using v.041 today, but nothing has been fixed. Still having issues.
With 'WORKBATCH: HIGH'

It reports it's mining at 145 Ksols. However, according to the pool, the hashrate is much lower

Please fix this issue! There's nothing in the logs to indicate there's any sort of issue. lolminer continues to report high hash rates.
..and yes, the difficulty value is  -2457600. This number constantly changes to some random off-the-wall number.

Meanwhile the power draw of each of my cards are all over the place:

**yes, the SCLK value is a little low, I've stepped in down a notch with:
rocm_smi.py --setsclk 5

However, even if I use '--setclk 6', I see similar disparities between the power draw and hash rates.

Also, the MCLK rates sporadically change between different values {300, 1000, 1750..etc} Mhz for each of the cards. Every time I run this output the MCLK values change.


**********update**********
I've been running V0.41 for the last hour or so with 'WORKBATCH: MEDIUM' And the results are pretty impressive so far. There's a definite 15-20% increase in the average hash rate over v0.34. Everything looks pretty solid so far. Need to run it for a few days to see if this trend continues.

****************update 2*******************
After mining for a few hours, the balance that each rig below was contributing to the next 0.1MNX payout was roughly equal.
However, 6 hours later the hashrate on the lolminer rig was still high but is producing significantly less crypto.
The balance listed below between the two rigs should be roughly equal, but it's not even close.

Worker   Hashrate (Now)   Hashrate (AVG)           Diff.           Shares     Balance
nvidia   167.23 KSol/s           167.67 KSol/s           1495173   547.55   0.04332093  (EWBF Cuda Equihash miner)
amd     157.71 KSol/s           147.99 KSol/s           1462857   714.29   0.01504778  (lolminer v0.41)


Why is this happening? V0.34 had a lower hashrate but was producing more crypto in the long term.
This is the exact same behavior I saw with version v0.40

**lolminer v0.41 did fail twice during the time I was mining. Both failures were due to: 'Floating point exception(core dumped)'
**I have a script that restarts the miner in the event that it fails. So these failures resulted in only a minute or two of downtime.

switching back to v0.34...

at 2g amd does not work?


Depends - for mnx it works, for 144.5 not (on APUs it can work but is horribly slow)
This may change in the future, bit squeezing 144.5 in 2G is not so easy.


The minus diff issue indicates that some faulty shares are computed, whyever. Dies this also happen on MEDIUM? Seems highh us no good idea at the moment.

I have Windows 10, GPU RX 470 and RX 580 (4 Gb)

Version 0.4 did not work, version 0.41 earned immediately and without problems. The show on BTG showed an average of 12 sol / s at 470's and 14 sol at 580.
It works stably and without failures, DDR memory does not load, unlike MNX on version 0.38, when DDR memory in 4 Gb was not enough !!

Waiting for a powerful upsurge of the hash (like on MNX). Thank you for your work

no, no, to me the most important is mnx coin and it does not work, the miner crashes....i dont care about other coins.
- the best miner for now is lolminer v034

For AMD - MNX is not relevant now, too little course and high complexity

Hi there,

I just updated the miner to version 0.41

Here are the download links:

[Lin 64] Click me (0.41 for Linux)
[Win 64]  Click me (0.41 for Windows)


And here are the changes (hope I get all):

Windows Version:
- Switched from a mingW64 to a visual studio based build. This should remove the majority of the Windows bugs / random crashed Cheesy

Coins:
- Added support for HeptaCoin (HEPTA)

Api:
- Added some new fields (total sol/s and pool information where the RIG is connected)
- Fixed the Windows API stability bug

Features:
- The miner now supports automatic user names. The parameter "RIGNAME" (in config file) or -rigname= (in command line) set a name for the Rig. When now for any pool connection data at the "USER" field no "." is found the RIGNAME will be appended to the user name automatically. Instead when a "." is found, RIGNAME will be ignored.

- Extended the "DEVICES" parameter and also enables control of devices in command line. Now the miner is fully functional to be controled over cmd. Especially the user now can select "DEVICES":"AMD" or "DEVICES" : "NVIDIA" to restrict to GPUs for one vendor (see manual for more details).

- Added the options "TIMEPRINT" and "SHORTACCEPT" to modify the console output. (See manual in section "Modify the Statistics Output")

- Added the options "CONNECTION_ATTEMPTS" and "RECONNECTION_TIMER" to modify the behavior of the failover support (See manual in section "Adjusting the Failover Pool Function")

- lolMiner can now change the kernel file search directory ("KERNELSDIR") and for the user_config.json (-usercfg= in command line). The paths can be absolute or relative to the current work directory. This allows to install the executable in some system search path and the other required stuff in a complete different location.


Known issues:
- Windows defender sometimes recognizes lolMiner.exe as virus. This is a false positive and Windows defender is the only search engine that I am aware of that does so (only one out of 67 virus search engines tested)

- Windows version may crash when hitting
  • - better stop the miner by task manager or ctrl + c.

- The current mining code for Nvidia & MNX seems only to work well (fast) on GTX1080 cards. Unfortunately the older one does not work directly in miner framework. I will now be on vacation for a week but will try to fix this ASAP.

- The API can not be displayed in Chrome. No idea why, but Firefox and Internet Explorer did well, on Windows, Linux and Android mobile.

Awesome news, Thanks for add Heptacoin  Grin

The latest version doesn't seem to work for mining SAFE. I get this message - "Error: No coin profile find for coin SAFE".

v0.38 still works fine, so I can use that for now. Would be grateful for a fix Smiley

Are you using Windows or Linux? How many cards are in your rig? Are your RX480 cards 4GB or 8GB? Which pool are you connected to? It would help if you provided a bit more information so that we can start to narrow down where the issue lies.

On Linux systems, is it possible to to view how much GPU memory is being used for RX5xx or RX4xx cards? It would be nice if there were debug options included so we could verify how much GPU memory is actually being used. It would also be helpful to view how many instances of an algorithm are concurrently running.

However, 6 hours later the hashrate on the lolminer rig was still high but is producing significantly less crypto.
The balance listed below between the two rigs should be roughly equal, but it's not even close.

Worker   Hashrate (Now)   Hashrate (AVG)           Diff.           Shares     Balance

Why is this happening? V0.34 had a lower hashrate but was producing more crypto in the long term.
This is the exact same behavior I saw with version v0.40

**lolminer v0.41 did fail twice during the time I was mining. Both failures were due to: 'Floating point exception(core dumped)'
**I have a script that restarts the miner in the event that it fails. So these failures resulted in only a minute or two of downtime.

switching back to v0.34...


with lolminer 0.41 on AMD 79x0 http://eu.minexpool.nl takes a NEGATIVE difficulty time by time ! (yes, with minus sign!)
and real AVERAGE hashrates lower than 0.33 version values

but lolminer 0.41 interface shows a higher hashrates

I just want you to know I just arrived back from vacation and will start later today to catch comments up here and start working on the next code iteration. Hope to get rid of the minus sign bug and low hashrate on some GPUs asap.
