Enhancement request...

Would it be possible to hide unused pools in the Options -> Online Services (Predefined Online Services) dialogue?

When only using a couple of predefined pools for profit switching, that list is getting rather lengthy with all the algos and pools currently available. Makes for a lot of scrolling to set options on each algo (that are unique to the algo) on each pool being used.

Thanks,

You would not want to consider integration with MiningRigRenals on the same as with Nicehashe? It would be very cool, a complete package of all mining))).
Awesome Miner actually had some basic support for MRR many years ago, but it was removed because it didn't work perfectly and it wasn't many users using it anyway. Is MRR popular these days? I've not used it myself since 2014.

I can not vouch for all people, so I can not say whether it is popular or not.
I can say for sure, if the MRR functionality worked correctly and made a profit from this, then there would be people who took advantage of it.
And for you it would be an additional advertisement for your product.

Cannot use rig names on Aeternity with Bminer. It doesnt even add it to the command line, but adds a weird :x to the command line instead. So when i look at it it shows

Address:x@ae(pooladdress) instead of Address.Rigname@ae(pooladdress)

Patrike,

your build-in GPU clocking feature. Does it support more than 8+ Cards over the Afterburner Remote?

I want to upgrade my rigs to more cards, but need to be sure I can somehow clock them all. Afterburner only can clock 8 cards and NViadia Inspector cant handle Voltage and Fans for the new RTX cards.
Awesome Miner clocking will be more like nVidia Inspector in this case, but for both AMD and nVidia of course.

Currently also with the limitation of Voltage and Fan speed not possible to set on nVidia 2000-series. nVidia redesigned their 2000-series API support and it looks like MSI Afterburner uses nVidia features not known to anyone else to be able to set the fan on these cards. I will investigate a bit more for solutions here, but it may take a little while before it becomes public knowledge how to set the fan properties on the 2000-series.

Please also see the PM I sent you.

If you disable most of the pools from the Profit Switcher, you can actually click on the column header "Profit switching" to see only the few pools you have enabled on top of the list.

1) I will remove the 'x' part here. It's a default password Awesome Miner adds to most mining software as some of them requires a password to be passed even if it's not configured.

2) Can you please open the Pool Properties and enter the wallet information in the Worker field instead?

That does work. But, the sort order gets messed up. Any chance that when "Profit switching" is clicked, the sort order could be set to "Profit switching", then "Service", then "Algorithm"?

Patrike,
The latest Bminer 13.0 have great improvement of hash rate for the grin mining.

However, as mine grin on the sparkpool, need use email address and "/" for the worker name. default "." will not work correctly on the sparkpool.

in the Bminer bat file it's write something like that:

@echo OFF
REM Change the following address to your GRIN addr.
SET ADDRESS=mine%%40bminer.me
SET USERNAME=%ADDRESS%%%2Fworker
SET POOL=grin.sparkpool.com:6666
SET SCHEME=cuckaroo29
SET PWD=x

REM If you're passing in emails, the '@' characters need to be escaped (%

%40)
REM If the pool use / to annoate rigs, the '/' charaactrs need to be escape

(%%2F)
START "Bminer: When Crypto-mining Made Fast" bminer.exe -uri %SCHEME%://

%USERNAME%:%PWD%@%POOL% -api 127.0.0.1:1880


and when run the bat file directly  in windows, the Bminer will run correctly and work fine for the sparkpool.

However, when I want to config it in the awesome miner, whatever I defined in the pool or customer command line (try to add worker name). the Bminer will auto stop and quit ,will never run correctly.

Have to run the bat file and then add as external miner in awesome miner.

Could you please help to check and try to fix this in the next release (also for the Bminer 13.0 update)

thanks

It should be possible to set the Worker Name field in the Pool Properties to:
123abc@qq.com%2F[MinerWorker]

%2F is a way to escape slash '/' in an URL. You may also have to replace the @-sign in the mail address with %40. Awesome Miner will automatically replace [MinerWorker] with the miner specific worker name.

I will make sure next version of Awesome Miner handles this better out-of-the-box.

I will take a look if it's possible to make this with a reasonable effort. What are the settings you need to change frequently for these Online Services entries?

Yes, It  worked, I used the worker name "123abc@qq.com%2" and "F" as separator in the customer pool define, and then it's worked for grin sparkpool.

after check , pool side also OK.

thanks

Thanks,

I will take a look if it's possible to make this with a reasonable effort. What are the settings you need to change frequently for these Online Services entries?

I was using the "Password (optional)" setting to define a difficulty level (entering "c=BTC,d=##") for each algo on each pool. But have since discovered that I can set that using the "Additional command line arguments" setting in the "Profit Profile" page ("-p c=BTC,d=##") for each algo regardless of which pool. Much easier.

So, only settings I now play with in the "Online Services" page is the "Profit Factor" (some pools have variable fees per algo.)

Therefore, if it's not an easy job to change the sort order, then no worries. No longer a big issue.

Thanks,
...jim

How long does it take for the "Online Services" tab, "Actual Payout" to start showing something other than 100% (for pools other than Nicehash)?

Since ZergPools return, it has stayed at 100%. Other pools are showing various percentages.

Please can you check worker name, worker password, wallet address mapping for TT-Miner? It seems a little strange - for 2miners & mintpond I have to use the -worker argument to set worker. It defaults to wallet I think if not

Any way to stop awesome miner from creating firewall rules for every mining software?
I don't want everyone on my LAN to have access to the mining software on my miners.

Local connections usually work even if you don't allow the program, is there any particular reason for awesome miner to create firewall rules?
There are currently no setting to prevent this behavior in Awesome Miner.

Awesome Miner is registering the mining software as an allowed application. Mining software must be able to make outgoing pool connections and also open an API port where Awesome Miner connects for monitoring information. If an application isn't registered to the Windows firewall it may be blocked and Windows almost always shows a dialog where the user must accept the application.

If you try to start almost any mining software outside of Awesome Miner (a software that Awesome Miner didn't register already) you will see that Windows Defender Firewall will show a warning dialog - unless Defender is completely disabled.

In Windows Defender Firewall you also have a setting called "Block all incoming connections, including those in the list of allowed apps". That might be the one you are looking for in your specific scenario.

As for the inbound rules, I understand is good to have them to prevent the popups but there is no need to have them as "allow the connection" rules, because the monitoring connections are local we could have them as "block the connection" rules and the monitoring would still work correctly(as far as I have tested over the years) without allowing other LAN devices access to the mining software.

The "Block all incoming connections, including those in the list of allowed apps" might seem enough for most use cases but I have mining computers that serve other content so I need access to some of their ports.

Please consider adding an option so we can decide whether to create the rules as allow or block rules, thank you.
Can this be solved by using the setting to block all incoming connections, but then explicitly configure Windows Defender to open up a few ports that you need?

Even if you only monitor mining software locally, Windows will still complain and show the Blocked dialog when you launch the mining software unless it's an allowed application. This is the reason why Awesome Miner adds the mining software as allowed as it's very difficult to run mining operations without it.
Block all incoming connections takes precedence over any other rule.

I manually changed the allow rules created by awesome miner for the mining software to block rules. Have been mining since I originally asked about this without any issue or popup (picture of my rules linked). The problem is that when new software is added/updated new rules will be created by awesome miner as allowed rules.
https://imgur.com/a/w7YBXdZ

If you make this an option you could just leave the default as it is now(allowed rules), just in case "blocked" rules might break anything for someone.

Patrike,

I want to upgrade my rigs to more cards, but need to be sure I can somehow clock them all. Afterburner only can clock 8 cards and NViadia Inspector cant handle Voltage and Fans for the new RTX cards.

additionally for your information (though I have not owned any RTX cards, so I can only speak for Pascal series), I have a few rigs which I recently expanded to more than 8 cards and there has been no problems for them to be clocked via Afterburner Remote Agent through AM.

Code:
OS: Win 7 64bit
Driver: 399.24
MSI AB: 4.5.0

In AM, it sends through clocking commands and were seemly executed perfectly as AM's GPU Tab returned the readings accordingly to the clocking profiles.

e.g. (for 12 cards rig)
Code:
23/01/2019 8:11:14 AM.722 [017] [S]Executing GPU clocking command: /setmacm, powerLimit0=65&coreClockBoost0=50000&memoryClockBoost0=600000&fanSpeed0=90&powerLimit1=65&coreClockBoost1=50000&memoryClockBoost1=600000&fanSpeed1=90&powerLimit2=65&coreClockBoost2=50000&memoryClockBoost2=600000&fanSpeed2=90&powerLimit3=65&coreClockBoost3=50000&memoryClockBoost3=600000&fanSpeed3=90&powerLimit4=65&coreClockBoost4=50000&memoryClockBoost4=600000&fanSpeed4=90&powerLimit5=65&coreClockBoost5=50000&memoryClockBoost5=600000&fanSpeed5=90&powerLimit6=65&coreClockBoost6=50000&memoryClockBoost6=600000&fanSpeed6=90&powerLimit7=65&coreClockBoost7=50000&memoryClockBoost7=600000&fanSpeed7=90&powerLimit8=65&coreClockBoost8=50000&memoryClockBoost8=600000&fanSpeed8=90&powerLimit9=65&coreClockBoost9=50000&memoryClockBoost9=600000&fanSpeed9=90&powerLimit10=65&coreClockBoost10=50000&memoryClockBoost10=600000&fanSpeed10=90&powerLimit11=65&coreClockBoost11=50000&memoryClockBoost11=600000&fanSpeed11=90

Except for Ethereum and a few more, you should either use one of the Worker name or the Wallet address and almost always only the Worker name - even if what you enter looks like a wallet. This may also depend on what the specific pool expects.

The miner unique worker name (like .1, .2) can be added to the Properties of the miner, using "Add to worker name".

If you still run into this problem, please share the details of your Pool and Miner configuration. Thanks!

If an application isn't registered to the Windows firewall it may be blocked and Windows almost always shows a dialog where the user must accept the application.

If you try to start almost any mining software outside of Awesome Miner (a software that Awesome Miner didn't register already) you will see that Windows Defender Firewall will show a warning dialog - unless Defender is completely disabled.

In Windows Defender Firewall you also have a setting called "Block all incoming connections, including those in the list of allowed apps". That might be the one you are looking for in your specific scenario.

As for the inbound rules, I understand is good to have them to prevent the popups but there is no need to have them as "allow the connection" rules, because the monitoring connections are local we could have them as "block the connection" rules and the monitoring would still work correctly(as far as I have tested over the years) without allowing other LAN devices access to the mining software.

The "Block all incoming connections, including those in the list of allowed apps" might seem enough for most use cases but I have mining computers that serve other content so I need access to some of their ports.

Please consider adding an option so we can decide whether to create the rules as allow or block rules, thank you.
Can this be solved by using the setting to block all incoming connections, but then explicitly configure Windows Defender to open up a few ports that you need?

Even if you only monitor mining software locally, Windows will still complain and show the Blocked dialog when you launch the mining software unless it's an allowed application. This is the reason why Awesome Miner adds the mining software as allowed as it's very difficult to run mining operations without it.
Block all incoming connections takes precedence over any other rule.

I manually changed the allow rules created by awesome miner for the mining software to block rules. Have been mining since I originally asked about this without any issue or popup (picture of my rules linked). The problem is that when new software is added/updated new rules will be created by awesome miner as allowed rules.

If you make this an option you could just leave the default as it is now(allowed rules), just in case "blocked" rules might break anything for someone.
Thanks for the update.

I've made a quick implementation to support this case. I've introduced a new setting that you can set directly in the Awesome Miner configuration file as I don't want to expose this in the user interface.

1) Once the next version of Awesome Miner is available, install it, run it once and then exit the application.
2) Open the configuration file (%appdata%\AwesomeMiner\ConfigData.xml) and search for "ConfigureWindowsDefenderAllowedApps".
3) Change the property from true to false and save the file.
