Further off-topic discussion of Windows will be split/deleted or something.
Please keep this thread at least remotely related to BFGMiner...
Thanks

Hey man on topic lol

my bad


any word on the S 5 support yet we need a lot of stuff fixed in that degree with the S5 firmware and this would make for a breath of fresh air and would be very interesting to see how well it works in a  S5.

I know real live has a lot to do with not be able to get it done.
I hope all things are ok there (The wife) .I was just operated on my self .


just asking don't shot .

GenTarkin in the kncminer thread has been doing a great job of upgrading the titan firmware. He included the latest BFGMiner 5.2 in his upgrades.

However I am having some problems with 5.2 when running load balance, I had to switch back to 5.1 knc img

it seems like the buffer isn't getting properly flushed after a new block is found. It just spews out a bunch of shares that get rejected

5.1 rejects run 2-3%
5.2 rejects run about 20%

also, sometimes in 5.1 it gets into a state where every share is stale but when submitted they are accepted, adjusting expiry to say 600 secs has no effect

any idea what's going on here, is there a bug or configuration error??

thx

No, bisect means the output from the git bisect command.

If you run Windows, you can start a session on my webserver: http://luke.dashjr.org/tmp/code/webisect/webisect.php

No, bisect means the output from the git bisect command.

If you run Windows, you can start a session on my webserver: http://luke.dashjr.org/tmp/code/webisect/webisect.php

I am not real familiar with git & bisect is more than I want to get into at this time, the bug starts right at the 5.1 to 5.2 upgrade with 1 commit in between.  I reverted that commit and the bug is still there.

In the mean time I'll just stick with 5.1, it's been working pretty good

I'll delete some of these posts to tidy things up

thx

Is this a correct setup if I want to solo mine against my own wallet?

Code:
bfgminer.exe --stratum-port 8330 -o http://localhost:8332 -u user -p x --generate-to 1QBajsQ8wGHkBgJEhHikKvm1kqvtJdYE53

The reason I ask is that my hashing from the client is all Diff x/1 where x can be anything from 1 through 128k.  When I mine against a pool, the Diff adjusts.

No, just run BFGMiner without any options. If your hardware needs to connect via stratum, add just the --stratum-port 8330 option.

Hey Luke,

Thanks for your reply.  So I can run just:

Code:
bfgminer.exe --stratum-port 8330

I'm missing something doing it this way, I get bad address.

or

some thing like this i run my own proxy on two PIs one for sha256 and one for Scrpt mining  and could not get them to work on a Http port , so i had to run it thu the startum port .


bfgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://your PC address like this 1092.168.1.12:3333 -u x -p x --generate-to 1QBajsQ8wGHkBgJEhHikKvm1kqvtJdYE53    


but there is more soft ware I'm sure you may need, just not sure what it is.

I already have the BitCoin Core wallet configured, I'm just trying to use BFGMiner as a stratum connection to the wallet as well as a proxy for all of my AntMiner hardware.  I was just trying to see if my configuration was correct as my diff was 1/1...  It's cool, I'm just hashing on CKPool anyway now.

Hi Luke,

First of all, thanks a lot for the great miner software that you have shared with us. I have been using BFGMiner 5.2.0 in the last 3 weeks to manage my 2 Antminer U3'. I only found one annoying issue so far (if that would be indeed an issue) that I have already reported on your github repository. So there is no critical issue on your software that I experience so far.

I am just a hobbyist with a little budget so I would like to get the best performance out of my 2 Antminer U3'. After all attempts so far, I have finally managed to control their all-time average hash rate. However, I cannot figure out how to manage their effective hash rate. I hope you could explain in more detail about this.

As far as I understood, the effective hash rate has little to do with the miners, perhaps it is only related to the hardware error. I think it has more to do with BFGMiner and the pool that it is connected to. Is that correct? If so, how could we control it so that we can speed it up or slow it down? What are the parameters affecting it?

For your reference, below are what I have observed and what I would expect to happen related to those questions.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Cheers,

Anto


Set all-time average hash rate to 55 GH/s on each miner, I got 50 GH/s effective hash rate.




Increased all-time average hash rate to 60 GH/s on each miner 2 days ago, I still get 50 GH/s effective hash rate. I would expect to get higher effective hash rate with 5 GH/s more, very low hardware error and 0 rejected+stale shares.





The graph on Eligius pool site confirms that there is no increase on the hash rate.

I am looking forward in getting gridseed 80 chip to mine scrypt coins!
Does version 5.2.0 (windows version built) support this if not then which version?

Reading description of Bfgminer, I am not sure if SCRYPT need being specified in software in order using gridseed!
Would great in knowing settings such in *.bat file
- enable scrypt support
- stratum plus other setting leading server, users.worker and password
- other setting that would recognize two blade of gridseed device

Run this in Command Prompt. You need to first open BFGMiner directory before running this or you should specify the path(eg:- D:\Bitcoin\bfgminer\bfgminer.exe <remaining parameters>).

Code:
bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://pool1:port -u worker -p password -o stratum+tcp://pool2:port -u worker -p password -S noauto -S gridseed:all --set-device gridseed:clock=835

Hi Luke,

Both of my Antminer U3' crashed again today after running with 60 GH/s all-time average hash rate, non-continuously (stop for 10 minutes every 11 hours and 50 minutes with cron job). I just started to under-clock them to 200 MHz (x0782) at 0.75 V (x750) and managed them with a single BFGMiner process. I plan to run them continuously and I will keep reducing the hash rate until I get them running stable,  or just trash them if the stable hash rate will be below 80 GH/s.

As far as I understood, the effective hash rate has little to do with the miners, perhaps it is only related to the hardware error. I think it has more to do with BFGMiner and the pool that it is connected to. Is that correct? If so, how could we control it so that we can speed it up or slow it down? What are the parameters affecting it?

In relation to my questions above, I get more confused with the all-time effective average hash rate figure. It does not seem to be related to the all-time average hash rate figure as it remains at around 50 GH/s no matter what the all-time average hash rate is on. With the above settings (voltage=x750, clock=x0782), I got the figures as shown on screenshot below. I expect that the all-time effective average hash rate would be a certain percentage below the all-time average hash rate. It does not look that way. Is this all-time effective average hash rate reliable?

As I mentioned above, as soon as both miners crash again I will lower down the all-time average hash rate. Let's see how the all-time effective average hash rate figure will look like.

Cheers,

Anto

Hi Luke,

Perhaps you can just ignore my previous questions. But I would really appreciate if you could have a look on the Feature request - Provide warning indicator when the miner is dying on your github repository that I just raised, and think about it when you have spare time.

Cheers,

Anto
