Just a heads up.  A small "bug" shows the Antminer R1-LTC as performing 1.2GH/s vs the reality of MH/s.  The firmware is using its custom cgminer 4.8.0


This bug is actually in the Antminers themselves. Both L3 and L3+ is reporting GH/s when it's actually MH/s. Awesome Miner detects that it's L3/L3+ and compensates for this. So when you use L3/L3+, it looks fine in Awesome Miner.

Now with R1-LTC it's probably the same thing, the Antminers report incorrectly and Awesome Miner needs to compensate. Could you send me the API report for one of these miners (toolbar: Tools -> API Report), and I will be able to see the name of this miner. Then I can add a rule to compensate the hashrate on this one as well.

Not sure if i've missed this in the thread but is there a walkthrough of;
a) adding a customer miner e.g. ccminer 2.2
b) adding a new algo to profit switching using said custom miner

Cheers, apologies if i've missed it.
a) If it's not a profit switching scenario: If you open the properties of your Managed Miner, you will see that Automatic download is enabled by default. In this scenario, Awesome Miner will download and setup the mining software for you, in this case ccminer 2.1. If you change to Specify Path manually instead, you can point to your ccminer 2.2 executable instead, and Awesome Miner will use this one.

If you need to do this on multiple computers, you can also use this feature to push the ccminer 2.2 software to all of them:
http://awesomeminer.com/help/uploadsoftware.aspx

b) For profit switching scenario: Instead of configuring each Managed Miner like this, you define similar settings for you Profit profile. Go to Options dialog, Profit profile section, modify the profile you use, for example nVidia GPU, select ccminer and click Configure. Now you have the same option to change from Automatic download to specifying your own software path where you can point to another version of ccminer.

Sorry if this info it's already out there, i couldn't find it.

How to deal with different Overclock configurations by algos for auto-switch with Nvidia cards (also amd)?

Except for few ones, they are totally different and no adjustment would ruin the performance for every coin.
This feature is not supported, but has been requested before and makes perfect sense to add. Awesome Miner can do overclocking, but not as part of changing algorithm or pool.

Some mining software like sgminer and Claymore can do this via command line or by using Device Profiles in Awesome Miner.

After having tried hard to do this for a while here is my understanding:

You can add a custom miner and you can add a custom algo, however using them for profit switching with a custom coin is not possible.  
Adding a new algo is not useful for profit switching because any custom coin that goes with the new algo does not update its difficulty/price/block_reward

One possibility is profit switching (among hardcoded coins only) by replacing the original ccminer with a custom ccminer, but then you have totally lost the use of the original ccminer for all algos. So your new ccminer better be superior to the original ccminer for all the coins you're mining

So yes custom miner/algo/coins are possible but if your goal is to input a new coin, enter the hash rate of the new algo, point it to a custom ccminer and have it in the profit switching mix you can't do it.

Would that be correct Patrike? please confirm.

Another issue is, even if you're OK with using the custom ccminer for all coins and you're OK with manually updating difficulty/price/block_reward for the new coin regularly, it is still not useful for profit switching because you may only specify one global hash rate for the new algo for all your rigs. So assuming your rigs are not identical, the hash rate will be incorrect for all but one rig. Therefore profit switching that new coin, even with the above restrictions, would be pointless for more than one rig.

I bought the software for 500 miners and works very well.
For now we have antminers for BTC and in a few weeks LTC/X11.-
The rigs for altcoins also works very well, with the nvidia 10xx series and the radeon RX series.-

Thanks!!

I've  made some improvements in this area in the development version 3.2.1. See the following post for more details:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=676942.msg20341208#msg20341208

With the new version, you can add your own algorithms, and then add it for zpool and you will get profitability information. However, if you add a new coin that Awesome Miner cannot find, you will not get any automatic profit information.

The concept you describe about having support for multiple versions of ccminer for the profit switcher is the next step for me to implement. This has been requested a lot recently.

Thanks for the API report. I've made a small change to support this in the next release.

I'm looking to purchase a 40 miner license but first I wanted to check on something:

When using the MSI Afterburner control, is there any way to get Awesome Miner to either restore the defaults or use different overclock values when mining vs when NOT mining?  The mining rigs I have are used by people for gaming whenever they are not mining and I can't have a low-power high-memclock profile active when trying to play games on them.  I have NVIDIA cards or I would just use the miner's built-in overclocking.

I am pretty sure this is not the case with this software YET, from my limited experience it seems the GPU OC/UV side of it are more of a monitor thing than anything. I actually run a looping batch file that sets my OC/UV values on my rigs, because when you get to a point of having a lot of rigs, its a little difficult to know when one is having a gpu resetting on you and if you dont catch it at lets say 3am, then your running that rig at 100% tdp and such x amount of hours tell you wake up and catch it. So i currently use a script that injects my settings every 5 minutes around the clock to the gpu's....

If you know anything about code, maybe there is a way you can write a script that would say if x software is not running, inject these values, otherwise inject these values... which would detect it not running and run the system at default.

Just wanted to post this up... I am looking for suggestion on videos that you THINK that need to be done to walk new people down the road on the setup and use of the awesome miner software. I know there is a lot of info on the website on how to setup the miner, but as a fairly brand new miner myself when i first viewed all the info on the page it was written in a way that unless you had some knowledge of the mining scene it could be a bit overwelming and pushed me away from using the software for a while, but im back and have been running it for a few days and want to continue to use and it grow the community by building a database of help for others. I already have a list of things im already working on building guides/videos for, but i wanted to post up this so if there is something i have not thought about i can add it to the list and try to get a video out for it.

I have also published support for awesome miner over on the steemit side of things, to try and help guide some folks from over there to the software as well figured it was a good way for me to document all the videos and guides i create for the software in the near future in one location, so if someone comes onto the page int he future and ask a question, you can just link them to xyz video and it would answer their questions in a video and text platform.

Just keep your ears on the future updates, i know the creator is working on improving the OC/UV section, i recommended to him to add the ability to set OC/UV profiles for each algo, so when your running a profit switch miner it can tune to the best settings for each algo on the fly and he seemed to like that idea, so unsure if he is working on that yet or not, but mentioned he has plans to improve it.

Definitely, I'm getting back into mining after quitting for ~4 years and re-learning everything with all the new software and tools out there - OC profiles for each algo would be very welcome.

Great, I appreciate your effort to address these issues.

I'm using 3.2.1 and it has good improvements but having to use zpool to get coin info is not ideal for various reasons, also zpool does not cover most coins.

I've  made some improvements in this area in the development version 3.2.1. See the following post for more details:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=676942.msg20341208#msg20341208

With the new version, you can add your own algorithms, and then add it for zpool and you will get profitability information. However, if you add a new coin that Awesome Miner cannot find, you will not get any automatic profit information.

The concept you describe about having support for multiple versions of ccminer for the profit switcher is the next step for me to implement. This has been requested a lot recently.


Great, I appreciate your effort to address these issues.

I'm using 3.2.1 and it has good improvements but having to use zpool to get coin info is not ideal for various reasons, also zpool does not cover most coins.


Its not really zpool that the software is getting the info from, its whattomine that most of it is pulled from, so the limitations fall on the use of that website as the source data. I hope the dev adds the ability to add new coins in the future and give us the ability to add our own api url links for the data being pulled for the coins. This would allow massive customization on being able to add new coins and maintain a good correct profit number, because there is are dozens of websites to pull these api sources from on the day of release for each coin..

Not sure if i've missed this in the thread but is there a walkthrough of;
a) adding a customer miner e.g. ccminer 2.2
b) adding a new algo to profit switching using said custom miner

Cheers, apologies if i've missed it.
a) If it's not a profit switching scenario: If you open the properties of your Managed Miner, you will see that Automatic download is enabled by default. In this scenario, Awesome Miner will download and setup the mining software for you, in this case ccminer 2.1. If you change to Specify Path manually instead, you can point to your ccminer 2.2 executable instead, and Awesome Miner will use this one.

If you need to do this on multiple computers, you can also use this feature to push the ccminer 2.2 software to all of them:
http://awesomeminer.com/help/uploadsoftware.aspx

b) For profit switching scenario: Instead of configuring each Managed Miner like this, you define similar settings for you Profit profile. Go to Options dialog, Profit profile section, modify the profile you use, for example nVidia GPU, select ccminer and click Configure. Now you have the same option to change from Automatic download to specifying your own software path where you can point to another version of ccminer.


After having tried hard to do this for a while here is my understanding:

You can add a custom miner and you can add a custom algo, however using them for profit switching with a custom coin is not possible.  
Adding a new algo is not useful for profit switching because any custom coin that goes with the new algo does not update its difficulty/price/block_reward

One possibility is profit switching (among hardcoded coins only) by replacing the original ccminer with a custom ccminer, but then you have totally lost the use of the original ccminer for all algos. So your new ccminer better be superior to the original ccminer for all the coins you're mining

So yes custom miner/algo/coins are possible but if your goal is to input a new coin, enter the hash rate of the new algo, point it to a custom ccminer and have it in the profit switching mix you can't do it.

Would that be correct Patrike? please confirm.

Another issue is, even if you're OK with using the custom ccminer for all coins and you're OK with manually updating difficulty/price/block_reward for the new coin regularly, it is still not useful for profit switching because you may only specify one global hash rate for the new algo for all your rigs. So assuming your rigs are not identical, the hash rate will be incorrect for all but one rig. Therefore profit switching that new coin, even with the above restrictions, would be pointless for more than one rig.

This would allow massive customization on being able to add new coins and maintain a good correct profit number, because there is are dozens of websites to pull these api sources from on the day of release for each coin..

The method that Patrike prosposed above for profit switching would require zpool to pull the info (by using "unspecified xx algo" as the coin)
If you wanted to use whattomine (that has many times the number of zpool coins) you cannot currently add any of their covered coins that are not already hard coded in AM for profit switching as of 3.2.1
But I definitely agree it would be a great improvement to have option to add coins through api url or at least start by allowing all current whattomine coins to be recognized

Hi, guys, can somebody tell me, how to configure automatic switching from one of predefined pools (GAME, Litecoin, DGB) to another based on current coin profit? Im talking about Asic L3+.

Hello,

I have the same question. I don't understand how work profit switching with ASIC.
We need to configure pools like zpool or nicehash in ASIC and it switch automatically on the best coin ?
Or it change automatically the priority pool ?

Thanks.
