  Claymore's CryptoNote Windows CPU Miner v4.0
Posted by: Monet - Yesterday, 05:19 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

Claymore's CryptoNote Windows CPU Miner
=========================

Current version: 4.0

- removed devfee, miner is completely free now.
- added "-pow7" option to support Monero hardfork, use "-pow7 1" value to enable it.


Link:
Claymore's CryptoNote Windows CPU Miner v4.0


This is POOL version.

This version is for Windows x64, Windows x86 is supported up to v3.4 only. No Linux support planned.

This version uses AES-NI if CPU supports it, but also works with older CPUs that don' support AES-NI.

Since v4.0 this miner is completely free and has no developer fee.



COMMAND LINE OPTIONS:

-o pool address. Both HTTP and Stratum protocol are supported. You can specify several "-o" parameters to use several pools, or use "pools.txt" file, or use both.
First pool specified via "-o" option is main pool: miner will switch to main pool every 30 minutes.
Miner also supports SSL/TLS encryption for all data between miner and pool (if pool supports encryption), it significantly improves security.
To enable encryption, use "ssl://" or "stratum+ssl://" prefix (or "tls" instead of "ssl").

-u your wallet address.

-p password, use "x" as password.

-t number of threads. "-t 0" - autoselection. Autoselection does not work fine in all cases, so try different values.
Optimal value depends mostly on L3 cache size.
For example, if your CPU has 8 MB of L3 cache (i7 CPUs), use "-t 4". For 6MB L3 cache (i5 CPUs) use "-t 3".

-pow7 option to support Monero hardfork, use "-pow7 1" value to enable it.

-lowcpu low CPU usage mode. In this mode only one CPU thread is used but the speed is much higher than in "-t 1" mode.
This mode is useful for mining in background when minimal CPU usage is required instead of maximal mining speed.
Possible values are "-lowcpu 1" or "-lowcpu 2". For example, on i7 4770 CPU "-lowcpu 2" shows about 180 h/s on a single CPU thread.
This option is available only for CPUs that support AES-NI.

-ee close miner if no more pools are available in the list. By default, miner tries all pools one by one, after last pool it tries first pool again and so on.
Use "-ee 1" to close miner when it tried all pools, so you can restart it from some script and do some additional actions related to internet connectins if necessary.

-dbg debug log and messages. "-dbg 0" (default) - create log file but don't show debug messages.
"-dbg 1" - create log file and show debug messages. "-dbg -1" - no log file and no debug messages.

-r Restart miner mode. "-r 0" (default) - restart miner if something wrong. "-r -1" - disable automatic restarting. -r >0 - restart miner if something
wrong or by timer. For example, "-r 60" - restart miner every hour or when some worker thread failed.

-retrydelay delay, in seconds, between connection attempts. Default values is "20". Specify "-retrydelay -1" if you don't need reconnection, in this mode miner will exit if connection is lost.

-ftime failover main pool switch time, in minutes, see "Failover" section below. Default value is 30 minutes, set zero if there is no main pool.

-mport remote monitoring/management port. Default value is -3333 (read-only mode), specify "-mport 0" to disable remote monitoring/management feature.
Specify negative value to enable monitoring (get statistics) but disable management (restart, uploading files), for example, "-mport -3333" enables port 3333 for remote monitoring, but remote management will be blocked.
You can also use your web browser to see current miner state, for example, type "localhost:3333" in web browser.
Warning: use negative option value or disable remote management entirely if you think that you can be attacked via this port!
By default, miner will accept connections on specified port on all network adapters, but you can select desired network interface directly, for example, "-mport 127.0.0.1:3333" opens port on localhost only.

-mpsw remote monitoring/management password. By default it is empty, so everyone can ask statistics or manage miner remotely if "-mport" option is set. You can set password for remote access (at least EthMan v3.0 is required to support passwords).

-colors enables or disables colored text in console. Default value is "1", use "-colors 0" to disable coloring. Use 2...4 values to remove some of colors.

-v displays miner version, sample usage: "-v 1".



CONFIGURATION FILE

You can use "config.txt" file instead of specifying options in command line.
If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config.txt" file for options.
If there is only one option in the command line, it must be configuration file name.
If there are two or more options in the command line, miner will take all options from the command line, not from configuration file.
Place one option per line, if first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.



SAMPLE USAGE

unsecure connection:
NsCpuCNMiner64.exe -o stratum+tcp://mine.moneropool.org:80 -u 449TGay4WWJPwsXrWZfkMoPtDbJp8xoSzFuyjRt3iaM4bRHdzw4qoDu26FdcGx67BMDS1r2bnp7f5hF 6xdPWWrD3Q3Wf7G6 -p x

SSL/TLS connection:
miningpoolhub (this pool detects encryption automatically so it uses same port as for unencrypted connection):
NsCpuCNMiner64.exe -o ssl://us-east.cryptonight-hub.miningpoolhub.com:20580 -u YourLogin.YourWorker -p x

Do not forget to specify your wallet address!



FAILOVER

Use "epools.txt" file to specify additional pools. This file has text format, one pool per line. Every pool has 3 connection attempts.
Miner disconnects automatically if pool does not send new jobs for a long time or if pool rejects too many shares.
If the first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
Do not change spacing, spaces between parameters and values are required for parsing.
If you need to specify "," character in parameter value, use two commas - ,, will be treated as one comma.
Pool specified in the command line is "main" pool, miner will try to return to it every 30 minutes if it has to use some different pool from the list.
If no pool was specified in the command line then first pool in the failover pools list is main pool.
You can change 30 minutes time period to some different value with "-ftime" option, or use "-ftime 0" to disable switching to main pool.



REMOTE MONITORING/MANAGEMENT

Miner supports remote monitoring/management via JSON protocol over raw TCP/IP sockets. You can also get recent console text lines via HTTP.
Start "EthMan.exe" from "Remote management" subfolder (Windows version only).
Check built-in help for more information. "API.txt" file contains more details about protocol.



PERFORMANCE

About 280 h/s on i7-4770 ("-t 4")
About 170 h/s on i5-4430 ("-t 3")
32bit version is slower than 64bit version in 1.5-2.0 times, about 190 h/s on i7-4770.



TROUBLESHOOTING

For most cases miner shows detailed error messages with explanations. To achieve maximal mining speed, start miner with admin rights once (miner must show "scfg: 1"),
it will configure system for optimal performance; then reboot computer to apply changes. For normal work no admin rights or other permissions are required. However,
if you use Windows UAC and start miner as admin in non-elevated mode miner will not work. Either create normal user and start miner there, or disable UAC.
Miner must show "FAST MODE ENABLED" message if everything is ok.
Sometimes reboot is necessary to clean RAM, otherwise miner can show "not enough memory" error.

Low speed in Windows 8.1 x64:

1. Make sure you are logged as admin. Create shortcut for NsCpuCNMiner64.exe on desktop.
2. Open shortcut properties, and specify command line parameters, for example:
C:\miner\NsCpuCNMiner64.exe -o stratum+tcp://mine.moneropool.org:80 -u 449TGay4WWJPwsXrWZfkMoPtDbJp8xoSzFuyjRt3iaM4bRHdzw4qoDu26FdcGx67BMDS1r2bnp7f5hF 6xdPWWrD3Q3Wf7G6 -p x
3. Press "Advanced" button, check "Run As Administrator". Also disable UAC and reboot (perhaps this step is not ncessary for your configuration).
4. Start shortcut, I get about 290 h/s on stock i7-4770 in Windows 8.1 x64.

  Claymore's CryptoNote AMD Miner v11.3
Posted by: Monet - 11-19-2019, 06:45 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

Claymore's CryptoNight AMD Miner.
=========================

Current version: 11.3:

- removed devfee, miner is completely free now.
- added "-pow7" option to support Monero hardfork, use "-pow7 1" value to enable it.
- reduced CPU usage for systems with a lot of GPUs.


Link:
Claymore's CryptoNote AMD Miner v11.3


This is POOL version.
Set the following environment variables, especially if you have 1-2GB cards:

GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 1
GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

For multi-GPU systems, set Virtual Memory size in Windows at least 16 GB:
"Computer Properties / Advanced System Settings / Performance / Advanced / Virtual Memory".

Since v11.3 this miner is completely free and has no developer fee.

This version is for recent AMD videocards only: 7xxx, 2xx, 3xx and 4xx, 1GB or more.

There are builds for Windows x64 and Linux x64. No 32-bit support. No NVidia support.



COMMAND LINE OPTIONS:

-xpool XMR pool address. Only Stratum protocol is supported.
Miner also supports SSL/TLS encryption for all data between miner and pool (if pool supports encryption), it significantly improves security.
To enable encryption, use "ssl://" or "stratum+ssl://" prefix (or "tls" instead of "ssl").

-xwal Your XMR wallet address. Also worker name and other options if pool supports it.
Pools that require "Login.Worker" instead of wallet address are not supported directly currently, but you can use "-allpools 1" option to mine there.

-xpsw Password for XMR pool, use "x" as password.

-pow7 option to support Monero hardfork, use "-pow7 1" value to enable it.



-r Restart miner mode. "-r 0" (default) - restart miner if something wrong with GPU. "-r -1" - disable automatic restarting. -r >20 - restart miner if something
wrong with GPU or by timer. For example, "-r 60" - restart miner every hour or when some GPU failed.
"-r 1" closes miner and execute "reboot.bat" file ("reboot.bash" or "reboot.sh" for Linux version) in the miner directory (if exists) if some GPU failed.
So you can create "reboot.bat" file and perform some actions, for example, reboot system if you put this line there: "shutdown /r /t 5 /f".


Note: for Linux gpu-pro drivers, miner must have root access to manage fans, otherwise only monitoring will be available.

-ttli reduce entire mining intensity (for all coins) automatically if GPU temperature is above specified value. For example, "-ttli 80" reduces mining intensity if GPU temperature is above 80C.
You can see if intensity was reduced in detailed statistics ("s" key).
You can also specify values for every card, for example "-ttli 80,85,80". You also should specify non-zero value for "-tt" option to enable this option.
It is a good idea to set "-ttli" value higher than "-tt" value by 3-5C.

-tstop set stop GPU temperature, miner will stop mining if GPU reaches specified temperature. For example, "-tstop 95" means 95C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-tstop 95,85,90".
This feature is disabled by default ("-tstop 0"). You also should specify non-zero value for "-tt" option to enable this option.
If it turned off wrong card, it will close miner in 30 seconds.
You can also specify negative value to close miner immediately instead of stopping GPU, for example, "-tstop -95" will close miner as soon as any GPU reach 95C temperature.

-fanmax set maximal fan speed, in percents, for example, "-fanmax 80" will set maximal fans speed to 80%. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-fanmax 50,60,70".
This option works only if miner manages cooling, i.e. when "-tt" option is used to specify target temperature. Default value is "100".

-fanmin set minimal fan speed, in percents, for example, "-fanmin 50" will set minimal fans speed to 50%. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-fanmin 50,60,70".
This option works only if miner manages cooling, i.e. when "-tt" option is used to specify target temperature. Default value is "0".

-cclock set target GPU core clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-cclock 1000,1050,1100,0".
Unfortunately, AMD blocked underclocking for some reason, you can overclock only.

-mclock set target GPU memory clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-mclock 1200,1250,1200,0".
Unfortunately, AMD blocked underclocking for some reason, you can overclock only.

-powlim set power limit, from -50 to 50. If not specified, miner will not change power limit. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-powlim 20,-20,0,10".

-cvddc set target GPU core voltage, multiplied by 1000. For example, "-cvddc 1050" means 1.05V. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-cvddc 900,950,1000,970". Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows.

-mvddc set target GPU memory voltage, multiplied by 1000. For example, "-mvddc 1050" means 1.05V. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-mvddc 900,950,1000,970". Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows.

-mport remote monitoring/management port. Default value is -3333 (read-only mode), specify "-mport 0" to disable remote monitoring/management feature.
Specify negative value to enable monitoring (get statistics) but disable management (restart, uploading files), for example, "-mport -3333" enables port 3333 for remote monitoring, but remote management will be blocked.
You can also use your web browser to see current miner state, for example, type "localhost:3333" in web browser.
Warning: use negative option value or disable remote management entirely if you think that you can be attacked via this port!
By default, miner will accept connections on specified port on all network adapters, but you can select desired network interface directly, for example, "-mport 127.0.0.1:3333" opens port on localhost only.

-mpsw remote monitoring/management password. By default it is empty, so everyone can ask statistics or manage miner remotely if "-mport" option is set. You can set password for remote access (at least EthMan v3.0 is required to support passwords).

-colors enables or disables colored text in console. Default value is "1", use "-colors 0" to disable coloring. Use 2...4 values to remove some of colors.

-v displays miner version, sample usage: "-v 1".

You can use "config.txt" file instead of specifying options in command line.
If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config.txt" file for options.
If there is only one option in the command line, it must be configuration file name.

You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.



SAMPLE USAGE

moneropool (unencrypted connection):
NsGpuCNMiner.exe -xpool stratum+tcp://mine.moneropool.org:80 -xwal 449TGay4WWJPwsXrWZfkMoPtDbJp8xoSzFuyjRt3iaM4bRHdzw4qoDu26FdcGx67BMDS1r2bnp7f5hF 6xdPWWrD3Q3Wf7G6 -xpsw x

miningpoolhub SSL/TLS connection (this pool detects encryption automatically so it uses same port as for unencrypted connection):
NsGpuCNMiner.exe -xpool ssl://us-east.cryptonight-hub.miningpoolhub.com:20580 -xwal YourLogin.YourWorker -xpsw x

suprnova SSL/TLS connection:
NsGpuCNMiner.exe -xpool ssl://xmr.suprnova.cc:5221 -xwal YourLogin.YourWorker -xpsw x

Do not forget to specify your wallet address!



FAILOVER

Use "epools.txt" file to specify additional pools. This file has text format, one pool per line. Every pool has 3 connection attempts.
Miner disconnects automatically if pool does not send new jobs for a long time or if pool rejects too many shares.
If the first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
Do not change spacing, spaces between parameters and values are required for parsing.
If you need to specify "," character in parameter value, use two commas - ,, will be treated as one comma.
You can reload "epools.txt" file in runtime by pressing "r" key.
Pool specified in the command line is "main" pool, miner will try to return to it every 30 minutes if it has to use some different pool from the list.
If no pool was specified in the command line then first pool in the failover pools list is main pool.
You can change 30 minutes time period to some different value with "-ftime" option, or use "-ftime 0" to disable switching to main pool.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.
You can also select current pool in runtime by pressing "e" key.



REMOTE MONITORING/MANAGEMENT

Miner supports remote monitoring/management via JSON protocol over raw TCP/IP sockets. You can also get recent console text lines via HTTP.
Start "EthMan.exe" from "Remote management" subfolder (Windows version only).
Check built-in help for more information. "API.txt" file contains more details about protocol.



KNOWN ISSUES

- Windows 10 Defender recognizes miner as a virus, some antiviruses do the same. Miner is not a virus, add it to Defender exceptions.
I write miners since 2014. Most of them are recognized as viruses by some paranoid antiviruses, perhaps because I pack my miners to protect them from disassembling, perhaps because some people include them into their botnets, or perhaps these antiviruses are not good, I don't know. For these years, a lot of people used my miners and nobody confirmed that my miner stole anything or did something bad.
Note that I can guarantee clean binaries only for official links in my posts on this forum (bitcointalk). If you downloaded miner from some other link - it really can be a virus.
However, my miners are closed-source so I cannot prove that they are not viruses. If you think that I write viruses instead of good miners - do not use this miner, or at least use it on systems without any valuable data.



TROUBLESHOOTING

1. Install Catalyst v15.12.
2. Disable overclocking.
3. Set environment variables as described above.
4. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB or more.
5. Reboot computer.
6. Check hardware, risers.

  Claymore's ZCash/BTG AMD GPU Miner v12.6 (Windows/Linux)
Posted by: Monet - 11-17-2019, 05:15 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

Claymore's ZCash/BTG AMD GPU Miner.
=========================

Latest version v12.6:

- added Vega cards support (ASM mode).
- added ASM mode for RX460/560 cards (+20% speed).
- new GPU sorting method for AMD cards. Now GPUs are sorted by physical bus index (it matches AfterBurner list of GPUs). Also the list of temperatures/fans matches the list of GPUs automatically.
Therefore "-di detect" and "-gmap" options are not necessary and not supported anymore.
WARNING: be careful if you use use separate overclock/temperature settings for every card, due to new sorting method GPUs can get different indexes!
- added fan/OC support for 17.7.2 (and higher) drivers.
- improved support for systems with more than 10 GPUs, check readme for "-di" option description for details.
- added pool selection in runtime ("e" key).
- a few minor improvements.


NOTES:
1. Reduce intensity ("-i" option) if miner is unstable or if you see bad speed.
2. It seems there is no way to get full speed on latest drivers for Fiji cards, at least in Windows. So don't use latest drivers for Fury, use 15.12 or 16.3.2, or use "-asm 0" for them if you use newer drivers.


LINKS:

MEGA: Claymore's Zcash/BTG v.12.6

This version is for pools.

Catalyst (Crimson) 15.12 is required for best performance and compatibility.
15.12 does not support some Fiji cards, use 16.3.2 for them.
For 4xx cards (Polaris) Crimson 16.12.2 is recommended.
NOTE: For best performance on Fiji cards you must use 15.12 or 16.3.2 drivers. For newest drivers speed will be slower!
You can get bad results for non-recommended drivers, or miner can fail on startup.
Set the following environment variables, especially if you have 1-2GB cards:

GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 1
GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

For multi-GPU systems, set Virtual Memory size in Windows at least 16 GB:
"Computer Properties / Advanced System Settings / Performance / Advanced / Virtual Memory".

This miner is free-to-use, however, current developer fee is 2% if you use secure SSL/TLS connection to mining pool, every hour the miner mines for 72 seconds for developer.
If you use unsecure connection to mining pool, current developer fee is 2.5%, every hour the miner mines for 90 seconds for developer.
If you don't agree with the dev fee - don't use this miner, or use "-nofee" option.
Attempts to cheat and remove dev fee will cause a bit slower mining speed (same as "-nofee 1") though miner will show same hashrate.
Miner cannot just stop if cheat is detected because creators of cheats would know that the cheat does not work and they would find new tricks. If miner does not show any errors or slowdowns, they are happy.

This version is for recent AMD videocards only: 7xxx, 2xx, 3xx and 4xx, 1GB or more.

There are builds for Windows x64 and Linux x64. No 32-bit support. No NVidia support.


COMMAND LINE OPTIONS:

-zpool ZCash pool address. Only Stratum protocol is supported.
Miner also supports SSL/TLS encryption for all data between miner and pool (if pool supports encryption), it significantly improves security.
To enable encryption, use "ssl://" or "stratum+ssl://" prefix (or "tls" instead of "ssl"), for example: "-zpool ssl://asia1-zcash flypool org:3443"

-zwal Your ZCash wallet address. Also worker name and other options if pool supports it.
Pools that require "Login.Worker" instead of wallet address are not supported directly currently, but you can use "-allpools 1" option to mine there.

-zpsw Password for ZCash pool, use "x" as password.

-a algoritm selection. Possible values: 0..2. 0 - autodetect. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-a 0,2,1". Default value is "0".

-asm try faster assembler algorithm implementation when possible, it is less compatible but faster. Specify "-asm 0" to disable this option.
You can also specify values for every card, for example "-asm 0,1,0". Default value is "1".
Assembler implementation is available for some cards only, miner displays "algorithm ASM" when it is available.

-i mining intensity. Possible values: 0...9. 0 - lowest intensity and CPU usage, 9 - maximal intensity. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-i 2,5,6". Default value is "6".
Note: reduce intensity if you get low speed or miner is unstable. Also check several values to find the best speed, for example, "-i 8" can be a bit faster than "-i 9" in some cases.

-old try to use "-old 1" if v12.0 works stable for you, but newer versions are unstable.

-allpools Specify "-allpools 1" if miner does not want to mine on specified pool (because it cannot mine devfee on that pool), but you agree to use some default pools for devfee mining.
Note that if devfee mining pools will stop, entire mining will be stopped too.

-di GPU indexes, default is all available GPUs. For example, if you have four GPUs "-di 02" will enable only first and third GPUs (#0 and #2).
You can also turn on/off cards in runtime with "0"..."9" keys and check current statistics with "s" key.
For systems with more than 10 GPUs: use letters to specify indexes more than 9, for example, "a" means index 10, "b" means index 11, etc.

-ftime failover main pool switch time, in minutes, see "Failover" section below. Default value is 30 minutes, set zero if there is no main pool.

-wd watchdog option. Default value is "-wd 1", it enables watchdog, miner will be closed (or restarted, see "-r" option) if any thread is not responding for 1 minute or OpenCL call failed.
Specify "-wd 0" to disable watchdog.

-r Restart miner mode. "-r 0" (default) - restart miner if something wrong with GPU. "-r -1" - disable automatic restarting. -r >20 - restart miner if something
wrong with GPU or by timer. For example, "-r 60" - restart miner every hour or when some GPU failed.
"-r 1" closes miner and execute "reboot.bat" file ("reboot.bash" or "reboot.sh" for Linux version) in the miner directory (if exists) if some GPU failed.
So you can create "reboot.bat" file and perform some actions, for example, reboot system if you put this line there: "shutdown /r /t 5 /f".

-retrydelay delay, in seconds, between connection attempts. Default values is "20". Specify "-retrydelay -1" if you don't need reconnection, in this mode miner will exit if connection is lost.

-dbg debug log and messages. "-dbg 0" - (default) create log file but don't show debug messages.
"-dbg 1" - create log file and show debug messages. "-dbg -1" - no log file and no debug messages.

-logfile debug log file name. After restart, miner will append new log data to the same file. If you want to clear old log data, file name must contain "noappend" string.
If missed, default file name will be used.

-nofee set "1" to cancel my developer fee at all. In this mode some recent optimizations are disabled so mining speed will be slower by about 5%.
By enabling this mode, I will lose 100% of my earnings, you will lose only 2.5% of your earnings.
So you have a choice: "fastest miner" or "completely free miner but a bit slower".
If you want both "fastest" and "completely free" you should find some other miner that meets your requirements, just don't use this miner instead of claiming that I need
to cancel/reduce developer fee, saying that 2% developer fee is too much for this miner and so on.

-benchmark benchmark mode, specify "-benchmark 1" to see hashrate for your hardware.

-li low intensity mode. Reduces mining intensity, useful if your cards are overheated. Note that mining speed is reduced too.
More value means less heat and mining speed, for example, "-li 10" is less heat and mining speed than "-li 1". You can also specify values for every card, for example "-li 3,10,50".
Default value is "0" - no low intensity mode.

-tt set target GPU temperature. For example, "-tt 80" means 80C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-tt 70,80,75".
You can also set static fan speed if you specify negative values, for example "-tt -50" sets 50% fan speed. Specify zero to disable control and hide GPU statistics.
"-tt 1" (default) does not manage fans but shows GPU temperature and fan status every 30 seconds. Specify values 2..5 if it is too often.
Note: for Linux gpu-pro drivers, miner must have root access to manage fans, otherwise only monitoring will be available.

-ttli reduce entire mining intensity (for all coins) automatically if GPU temperature is above specified value. For example, "-ttli 80" reduces mining intensity if GPU temperature is above 80C.
You can see if intensity was reduced in detailed statistics ("s" key).
You can also specify values for every card, for example "-ttli 80,85,80". You also should specify non-zero value for "-tt" option to enable this option.
It is a good idea to set "-ttli" value higher than "-tt" value by 3-5C.

-tstop set stop GPU temperature, miner will stop mining if GPU reaches specified temperature. For example, "-tstop 95" means 95C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-tstop 95,85,90".
This feature is disabled by default ("-tstop 0"). You also should specify non-zero value for "-tt" option to enable this option.
If it turned off wrong card, it will close miner in 30 seconds.
You can also specify negative value to close miner immediately instead of stopping GPU, for example, "-tstop -95" will close miner as soon as any GPU reach 95C temperature.

-fanmax set maximal fan speed, in percents, for example, "-fanmax 80" will set maximal fans speed to 80%. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-fanmax 50,60,70".
This option works only if miner manages cooling, i.e. when "-tt" option is used to specify target temperature. Default value is "100".

-fanmin set minimal fan speed, in percents, for example, "-fanmin 50" will set minimal fans speed to 50%. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-fanmin 50,60,70".
This option works only if miner manages cooling, i.e. when "-tt" option is used to specify target temperature. Default value is "0".

-cclock set target GPU core clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-cclock 1000,1050,1100,0".
Unfortunately, AMD blocked underclocking for some reason, you can overclock only.

-mclock set target GPU memory clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-mclock 1200,1250,1200,0".
Unfortunately, AMD blocked underclocking for some reason, you can overclock only.

-powlim set power limit, from -50 to 50. If not specified, miner will not change power limit. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-powlim 20,-20,0,10".

-cvddc set target GPU core voltage, multiplied by 1000. For example, "-cvddc 1050" means 1.05V. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-cvddc 900,950,1000,970". Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows.

-mvddc set target GPU memory voltage, multiplied by 1000. For example, "-mvddc 1050" means 1.05V. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-mvddc 900,950,1000,970". Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows.

-mport remote monitoring/management port. Default value is -3333 (read-only mode), specify "-mport 0" to disable remote monitoring/management feature.
Specify negative value to enable monitoring (get statistics) but disable management (restart, uploading files), for example, "-mport -3333" enables port 3333 for remote monitoring, but remote management will be blocked.
You can also use your web browser to see current miner state, for example, type "localhost:3333" in web browser.
Warning: use negative option value or disable remote management entirely if you think that you can be attacked via this port!
By default, miner will accept connections on specified port on all network adapters, but you can select desired network interface directly, for example, "-mport 127.0.0.1:3333" opens port on localhost only.

-mpsw remote monitoring/management password. By default it is empty, so everyone can ask statistics or manage miner remotely if "-mport" option is set. You can set password for remote access (at least EthMan v3.0 is required to support passwords).

-colors enables or disables colored text in console. Default value is "1", use "-colors 0" to disable coloring. Use 2...4 values to remove some of colors.

-v displays miner version, sample usage: "-v 1".


CONFIGURATION FILE

You can use "config.txt" file instead of specifying options in command line.
If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config.txt" file for options.
If there is only one option in the command line, it must be configuration file name.
If there are two or more options in the command line, miner will take all options from the command line, not from configuration file.
Place one option per line, if first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.


SAMPLE USAGE

flypool SSL/TLS connection:
ZecMiner64.exe -zpool ssl://eu1-zcash flypool org:3443 -zwal t1RjQjDbPQ9Syp97DHFyzvgZhcjgLTMwhaq.YourWorkerName -zpsw x

suprnova SSL/TLS connection:
ZecMiner64.exe -zpool ssl://zec suprnova cc:2242 -zwal YourLogin YourWorkerName -zpsw YourWorkerPassword

miningpoolhub SSL/TLS connection (this pool detects encryption automatically so it uses same port as for unencrypted connection):
ZecMiner64.exe -zpool ssl://us-east equihash-hub miningpoolhub com:20570 -zwal YourLogin.YourWorkerName -zpsw YourWorkerPassword

coinmine SSL/TLS connection:
ZecMiner64.exe -zpool ssl://zec coinmine pl:7017 -zwal YourLogin.YourWorkerName -zpsw YourWorkerPassword

flypool (unencrypted connection):
ZecMiner64.exe -zpool eu1-zcash flypool org:3333 -zwal t1RjQjDbPQ9Syp97DHFyzvgZhcjgLTMwhaq.YourWorkerName -zpsw x

coinmine (unencrypted connection):
ZecMiner64.exe -zpool zec coinmine pl:7007 -zwal YourLogin.YourWorkerName -zpsw YourWorkerPassword


FAILOVER

Use "epools.txt" file to specify additional pools. This file has text format, one pool per line. Every pool has 3 connection attempts.
Miner disconnects automatically if pool does not send new jobs for a long time or if pool rejects too many shares.
If the first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
Do not change spacing, spaces between parameters and values are required for parsing.
If you need to specify "," character in parameter value, use two commas - ,, will be treated as one comma.
You can reload "epools.txt" file in runtime by pressing "r" key.
Pool specified in the command line is "main" pool, miner will try to return to it every 30 minutes if it has to use some different pool from the list.
If no pool was specified in the command line then first pool in the failover pools list is main pool.
You can change 30 minutes time period to some different value with "-ftime" option, or use "-ftime 0" to disable switching to main pool.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.
You can also select current pool in runtime by pressing "e" key.



REMOTE MONITORING/MANAGEMENT

Miner supports remote monitoring/management via JSON protocol over raw TCP/IP sockets. You can also get recent console text lines via HTTP.
Start "EthMan.exe" from "Remote management" subfolder (Windows version only).
Check built-in help for more information. "API.txt" file contains more details about protocol.



KNOWN ISSUES

- Windows 10 Defender recognizes miner as a virus, some antiviruses do the same. Miner is not a virus, add it to Defender exceptions.
I write miners since 2014. Most of them are recognized as viruses by some paranoid antiviruses, perhaps because I pack my miners to protect them from disassembling, perhaps because some people include them into their botnets, or perhaps these antiviruses are not good, I don't know. For these years, a lot of people used my miners and nobody confirmed that my miner stole anything or did something bad.
Note that I can guarantee clean binaries only for official links in my posts on this forum (bitcointalk). If you downloaded miner from some other link - it really can be a virus.
However, my miners are closed-source so I cannot prove that they are not viruses. If you think that I write viruses instead of good miners - do not use this miner, or at least use it on systems without any valuable data.



TROUBLESHOOTING

1. Install Catalyst v15.12.
2. Disable overclocking.
3. Reduce intensity ("-i" option).
4. Set environment variables as described above.
5. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB or more.
6. Try "-old 1" option.
7. Reboot computer.
8. Check hardware, risers.



FAQ:

Q: It seems miner mines devfee more than 72 or 90 seconds.

Q: Why do I see more shares for devfee than in my mining for the same time?
A: Most pools support variable diff, they change "target share" after some time after connection. For example, you have very powerful rig, after connection you will send shares very often. It takes some CPU time to check your shares so after some time pool will send higher share target and miner will send less shares (but they will have more value). When pool updates share target you will see "Pool sets new share target" line in the miner. This way pool can adjust the number of shares that miner sends and balance its load.
So check the log or console text to see current target for main mining thread and for devfee thread. For example:
DevFee: Pool sets new share target: 0x0083126e (diff: 500H) - this is for devfee mining connection
Pool sets new share target: 0x0024fa4f (diff: 1772H) - this is for main mining connection
As you can see, target share for main mining is higher in about 3.5 times, so for main mining miner sends in 3 times less shares (but they have 3x more value) than for devfee mining.

Q: Miner freezes if I put cursor to its window in Windows 10 until any key is pressed. Sometimes miner freezes randomly until any key is pressed.
A: You should make some changes in Windows:

Q: Can I mix Polaris cards (RX 4xx/5xx) and Fury cards in same rig?
A: You will not get best speed for Polaris and Fury cards mixed in one rig in Windows. Possible solutions:
1. Split Polaris and Fury GPUs to different rigs.
2. Use Linux.
3. Use "-asm 0" option for Fury cards (leave "asm 1" for Polaris cards) though they will have less speed in this mode.

  NoDevFee - for Claymore`s Dual Ethereum and Phoenix miner v.15.0
Posted by: Monet - 11-13-2019, 06:15 AM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

NoDevFee - for Claymore`s Dual Ethereum and Phoenix miner
=========================

Latest version is v15.0 - Supercharged Edition:

- now miner supports up to #384 epoch (4GB DAG size). Note that previous versions support up to #299 epoch, you will not be able to use old versions after #299 epoch.
- added support for Navi cards (ETH-only mode).
- now miner sets environment variables automatically (required for 4GB AMD cards).
- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.


DOWNLOAD LINK: MEGA - NoDevFee_v.15.0

Dev Fee's - 0.05%

version is v14.7 - Supercharged Edition:

- now the miner driver does not require switching Windows to Test Mode. If you want to turn Test Mode off, use "-driver uninstall" option (with admin rights) and reboot,
then start miner with admin rights to install new driver automatically when necessary (or use "-driver install" option directly).
If you have any problems with signed driver you can use "-driver install_test" option, it uses old approach: enables Test Mode (reboot is required) and installs unsigned driver.
- added "-showpower" option for stats about GPU power consumption, press "s" to see it. Both AMD and Nvidia cards are supported, except Linux gpu-pro drivers and Radeon7 cards.
- updated Remote Manager to show total power consumption.
- fixed issue with "-logsmaxsize" option when "-logfile" option is used to specify directory for log files.
- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.

version is v14.6 - Supercharged Edition:

- now "-rxboost" option also supports old AMD cards (Hawaii, Tonga, Tahiti, Pitcairn), use "-rxboost 1" to improve hashrate up to 5% by applying some additional memory timings.
- now "-rxboost" option supports all AMD drivers.
- now "-strap" for AMD cards also supports AMD blockchain drivers.
- some changes to further reduce stale shares a bit.
- added "-minspeedtime" option.
- added statistics for shares accepting time (min/max/average), press "s" to see it.
- updated Remote Manager to show shares accepting time.
- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.

Version 14.0.0 Beta

features of the program
autostart with Windows
Commission for software developers (Claymore dual miner and Phoenix miner) returns to your wallet
Simplicity in setting (You do not need to own any special features in order to customize the mining)



cons of the program
supports only ETH
This is the first version of the program so there are possible bugs
Since we are still developing and we do not need much money from the commission, we take 25% of the miner's wallet. So, you get a commission at the rate of 0.25% when you are mining with Claymore Dual miner. And when mining with a Phoenix miner 0.16%.



in the future
monitor farm without white ip
Adding other Crypto-Currency
Adding other pools
Creating website
Improve stability and increase functionality



Suported pools
Ethermine.org
Nanopool.org

Dev Fee's - 0.05%


FEATURES:


- Supports applying optimized memory timings (straps) on-the-fly in Windows, without flashing VBIOS (currently Polaris, Vega, Nvidia 10xx cards only), up to 20% speedup. Best straps for Ethereum are included.
- Supports new "dual mining" mode: mining both Ethereum and Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak at the same time, with no impact on Ethereum mining speed. Ethereum-only mining mode is supported as well.
- Effective Ethereum mining speed is higher by 3-5% because of a completely different miner code - much less invalid and outdated shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels.
- Supports both AMD and nVidia cards, even mixed.
- No DAG files.
- Supports all Stratum versions for Ethereum: can be used directly without any proxies with all pools that support eth-proxy, qtminer or miner-proxy.
- Supports Ethereum and Siacoin solo mining.
- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Decred.
- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Siacoin.
- Supports Stratum for Lbry, Pascal, Blake2s, Keccak.
- Supports failover.
- Displays detailed mining information and hashrate for every card.
- Supports remote monitoring and management.
- Supports GPU selection, built-in GPU overclocking features and temperature management.
- Supports Ethereum forks (Expanse, etc).
- Windows and Linux versions.


This version is POOL/SOLO for Ethereum, POOL for Decred, POOL/SOLO for Siacoin, POOL for Lbry, POOL for Pascal, POOL for Blake2s, POOL for Keccak.

For old AMD cards, Catalyst (Crimson) 15.12 is required for best performance and compatibility.
For AMD 4xx/5xx cards (Polaris) you can use any recent drivers.
For AMD cards, set the following environment variables, especially if you have 2...4GB cards:

GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

This miner is free-to-use, however, current developer fee is 1%, every hour the miner mines for 36 seconds for developer.
For all 2GB cards and 3GB cards devfee is 0%, so on these cards you can mine all ETH forks without devfee, this miner is completely free in this case.
If some cards are 2...3GB and some >3GB, 2...3GB cards still mine for you during devfee time, only cards that have more than 3GB memory will be used for devfee mining. Miner displays appropriate messages during startup.
Second coin (Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak) is mined without developer fee.
So the developer fee is 0...1%, if you don't agree with the dev fee - don't use this miner, or use "-nofee" option.
Attempts to cheat and remove dev fee will cause a bit slower mining speed (same as "-nofee 1") though miner will show same hashrate.
Miner cannot just stop if cheat is detected because creators of cheats would know that the cheat does not work and they would find new tricks. If miner does not show any errors or slowdowns, they are happy.

This version is for recent AMD videocards only: 7xxx, 2xx and 3xx, 2GB or more. Recent nVidia videocards are supported as well.

CONFIGURATION FILE

You can use "config.txt" file instead of specifying options in command line.
If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config.txt" file for options.
If there is only one option in the command line, it must be configuration file name.
If there are two or more options in the command line, miner will take all options from the command line, not from configuration file.
Place one option per line, if first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.

If for Ethereum-only mining:

ethpool:
NoDevFee.exe -epool us1.ethpool.org:3333 -ewal 0xD69af2A796A737A103F12d2f0BCC563a13900E6F -epsw x

sparkpool:
NoDevFee.exe -epool eu.sparkpool.com:3333 -ewal 0xD69af2A796A737A103F12d2f0BCC563a13900E6F -epsw x

f2pool:
NoDevFee.exe -epool eth.f2pool.com:8008 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -eworker rig1

nanopool:
NoDevFee.exe -epool eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -eworker rig1

nicehash:
NoDevFee.exe -epool stratum+tcp://daggerhashimoto.eu.nicehash.com:3353 -ewal 1LmMNkiEvjapn5PRY8A9wypcWJveRrRGWr -epsw x -esm 3 -allpools 1 -estale 0

Ethereum forks mining:

NoDevFee.exe -epool exp-us.dwarfpool.com:8018 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -allcoins -1

FAILOVER

Use "epools.txt" and "dpools.txt" files to specify additional pools (you can use "-epoolsfile" and "-dpoolsfile" options to use different filenames).
These files have text format, one pool per line. Every pool has 3 connection attempts.
Miner disconnects automatically if pool does not send new jobs for a long time or if pool rejects too many shares.
If the first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
Do not change spacing, spaces between parameters and values are required for parsing.
If you need to specify "," character in parameter value, use two commas - ,, will be treated as one comma.
You can reload "epools.txt" and "dpools.txt" files in runtime by pressing "r" key.
Pool specified in the command line is "main" pool, miner will try to return to it every 30 minutes if it has to use some different pool from the list.
If no pool was specified in the command line then first pool in the failover pools list is main pool.
You can change 30 minutes time period to some different value with "-ftime" option, or use "-ftime 0" to disable switching to main pool.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt", "dpools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.
You can also select current pool in runtime by pressing "e" or "d" key.


REMOTE MONITORING/MANAGEMENT

Miner supports remote monitoring/management via JSON protocol over raw TCP/IP sockets. You can also get recent console text lines via HTTP.
Start "EthMan.exe" from "Remote management" subfolder (Windows version only).
Check built-in help for more information. "API.txt" file contains more details about protocol.


KNOWN ISSUES

- AMD cards: on some cards you can notice non-constant mining speed in dual mode, sometimes speed becomes a bit slower. This issue was mostly fixed in recent versions, but not completely.
- AMD cards: in Linux with gpu-pro drivers, the list of GPUs may differ from the list of temperatures. You can use -di to change order of GPUs to match both lists.
- nVidia cards: dual mode is not so effective as for AMD cards.
- Windows 10 Defender recognizes miner as a virus, some antiviruses do the same. Miner is not a virus, add it to Defender exceptions.
I write miners since 2014. Most of them are recognized as viruses by some paranoid antiviruses, perhaps because I pack my miners to protect them from disassembling, perhaps because some people include them into their botnets, or perhaps these antiviruses are not good, I don't know. For these years, a lot of people used my miners and nobody confirmed that my miner stole anything or did something bad.
Note that I can guarantee clean binaries only for official links in my posts on this forum (bitcointalk). If you downloaded miner from some other link - it really can be a virus.
However, my miners are closed-source so I cannot prove that they are not viruses. If you think that I write viruses instead of good miners - do not use this miner, or at least use it on systems without any valuable data.


TROUBLESHOOTING

1. Install Catalyst v15.12 for old AMD cards; for Fury, Polaris and Vega cards use latest blockchain drivers.
2. Disable overclocking.
3. Set environment variables as described above.
4. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB or more.
5. Reboot computer.
6. Check hardware, risers.
7. Set some timeout in .bat file before starting miner at system startup (30sec or even a minute), and try "-ethi 4" to check if it is more stable. It can help if miner is not stable on some system.

In case you are mining Monero make sure to update Cast XMR before that date. Also make sure that the algo for Monero is not explicitly set to CryptoNightV7 but set to auto detect with --algo=-1 to automatically switch from CryptoNightV7 to CryptoNightV8 when the upgrade is happening. Please also note that the CryptoNight V8 algo has added complexity which decreases the hashrate up to 7% for Vega GPUs.

Cast XMR Version 1.4.0 (2018/8/28)
- 3% performance improvement for CryptoNightTUBE-Heavy when mining BitTube (TUBE)
- support for Festival Coin (FEST) upcoming update which introduces a new CryptoNight variant: CryptoNightFEST. Use --algo=9 to continue mining Festival Coin after the network update happened

- --maxmem option is deprecated, will now be mapped to an corresponding intensity setting
- --forcecompute is deprecated, 'Compute Mode' of Polaris GPUs will be automatically detected. To overwrite use the --intensity option
- Default mining algo changed to CryptoNightV7, to still mine CryptoNight Classic add --algo=0
- Tested with Radeon Adrenalin Driver 18.4.1

Cast XMR Version 1.0.0 (2018/4/24)
- Support for Aeon (AEON) CryptoNight Lite variant set --algo=3 to mine
- Support for Turtlecoin (TRTL) CryptoNightV7 Lite variant set --algo=4 to mine
- Support for Interplanetary Broadcast Coin (IPBC) CryptoNight Lite IPBC variation set --algo=5 to mine
- Up to 3% performance improvement with new option --maxmem to allocate the maximum memory of the card. For Vega cards the "HBCC Memory Segment" has to be disabled in the Radeon Settings to use the option. Disadvantage is a higher risk of hash rate drops when the --maxmem option is used.

Cast XMR Version 0.9.1 (2018/03/22)
- 0.5% overall performance improvement for Vega based GPUs
- --ratewatchdog experimental option to monitor the hash rate, in case an occasional happening drop of the hash rate is detected the kernel will be resetted to restore the optimal hash rate
- fully tested CryptoNight variant (CryptoNightV7) for the Monero V7 Network Upgrade PoW Change which is now scheduled for the 6th April.
- In case you want to mine the Graft coin use the --algo=0 option, an automatic detection of the used CryptoNight variant is not possible for this coin. For all other known CryptoNight coins the hash variant seems to be detected correct
- In case you are mining with nicehash.com or any other automatic coin switching pool that has the Graft coin in the mix the --algo=0 option is advised to prevent invalid shares on the Graft coin. Be aware to remove the option when the Monero V7 network upgrade is happpening otherwise it then will clash with mining Monero!

Cast XMR Version 0.9.0 (2018/03/08)
- support for the Monero V7 network upgrade.
- the Monero PoW switch will be automatically detected, no restart of cast XMR is required. Only make sure to update cast XMR before the network upgrade is happening and that the used Monero pool supports the network upgrade
- no decrase in hash rate for other currencies was introduced by the change
- CryptoNightV7 will run at the same hash rate as CryptoNight
- for any case there is the new --algo option to force which CryptoNight variant to use:
- -1 = autodetect (default)
- 0 = CryptoNight
- 1 = CryptoNightV7 (Monero V7 network upgrade)

Cast XMR Version 0.8.5 (2018/02/07)
- 1% performance gain for Vega Frontier Edition with Blockchain driver (fastest GPU around)
- 1% performance improvement with current stock driver (18.1.1) for RX Vega 56/64 (40% to go to reach Blockchain driver performance)
- fix for random blocking console output
- GPU now always logs with its device id not the order they are listed in the -G argument
- --log option to log console output to a file
- remote access includes CORS support in HTTP header

  Claymore’s Miner Manager - Monitoring and managing mining by rigs v.15.0
Posted by: Monet - 11-10-2019, 12:18 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

Quote:Claymore’s Miner Manager - Monitoring and managing mining by rigs

Certainly some of you do not know that the Claymore miners, currently popular with the miners, such as the Claymore Zcash AMD GPU miner and the Claymore Dual miner, include the very handy Ethman Remote manager utility, which allows you to centrally control and monitor the rigs that are running miners from Claymore on the local network. In this article I will explain how to configure monitoring rigs using the Ethman Remote manager using the example of the Claymore Zcash AMD GPU miner.

So, if you have not installed the latest version of the miner from Claymore, then download and install it. Currently, the most profitable mining algorithm for mining is EquiHash, which produces such altcoins as Zcash (ZEC) and Zcash Classic (ZCL). Therefore, I give a link by which you can download the miner from Claymore for this particular algorithm. Download the latest version of the miner for this link. At the time of this writing, this is version v15.0

Download miner:

Claymore's Dual Miner Manager v.15.0


Claymore's Miner Manager main features:
Monitoring rigs parameters that are in the local network.
Editing miner configs.
Restart miners.
Setting the sound alert when stopping the mining process.
Automatic launch of a .bat file when stopping the mining process.

Now let's proceed directly to setting up the application for monitoring miners from Claymore
We launch the miner from Claymore with the help of the .bat file, which contains your settings for mining.
Go to the folder "Remote manager", which is located in the folder with the Claymore miner and run the program "EthMan.exe".
If your miner is running on the same computer as EthMan, then to add your mining rig to the program, simply click the "Add Miner" button, then enter the name of the rig, enter 127.0.0.1 in the IP address field, and enter in the Port input field: 3333, then click on OK.
Now, in the monitoring window, you can see all the main indicators that are transmitted by the miner to the EthMan program via the JSON API in real time: Name of the rig, IP and port, time of the miner, current hashrayt, temperature of all GPUs and fan rotation speed, mining pool, miner version.
If the miner is running on the computer on which you run the program for monitoring EthMan, then instead of IP 127.0.0.1 you should enter the IP address of your rig in the local network. (e.g. 192.168.1.1 or other).
In addition, you can change the port number of the miner to get statistics. To do this, in the .bat file of your miner simply add the additional parameter "-mport new port number", for example, "-mport 3444". And when adding a barn to the monitoring program, do not forget to specify this particular port later.
In order for the miner to give correct results, in the "Options" tab of the Claymore's Miner Manager specify the Main Coin Name: Zcash, Second Coin Name: -, Speed units: KH / s. Then click "Save Settings".
By default, the monitoring program on the 8000 port has an http web server installed, with which you can monitor the statistics of your rigs directly through the browser. To do this, simply enter in the address bar of your browser. 127.0.0.1:8000. the port can be changed in the settings of the monitoring program.

  Claymore's Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v15.0 (Windows/Linux)
Posted by: Monet - 11-08-2019, 06:50 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

Quote:Claymore's Dual Ethereum + Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner.
=========================

Latest version is v15.0 - Supercharged Edition:

- now miner supports up to #384 epoch (4GB DAG size). Note that previous versions support up to #299 epoch, you will not be able to use old versions after #299 epoch.
- added support for Navi cards (ETH-only mode).
- now miner sets environment variables automatically (required for 4GB AMD cards).
- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.


DOWNLOAD LINK: MEGA - Claymore's miner v15.0

version is v14.7 - Supercharged Edition:

- now the miner driver does not require switching Windows to Test Mode. If you want to turn Test Mode off, use "-driver uninstall" option (with admin rights) and reboot,
then start miner with admin rights to install new driver automatically when necessary (or use "-driver install" option directly).
If you have any problems with signed driver you can use "-driver install_test" option, it uses old approach: enables Test Mode (reboot is required) and installs unsigned driver.
- added "-showpower" option for stats about GPU power consumption, press "s" to see it. Both AMD and Nvidia cards are supported, except Linux gpu-pro drivers and Radeon7 cards.
- updated Remote Manager to show total power consumption.
- fixed issue with "-logsmaxsize" option when "-logfile" option is used to specify directory for log files.
- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.

version is v14.6 - Supercharged Edition:

- now "-rxboost" option also supports old AMD cards (Hawaii, Tonga, Tahiti, Pitcairn), use "-rxboost 1" to improve hashrate up to 5% by applying some additional memory timings.
- now "-rxboost" option supports all AMD drivers.
- now "-strap" for AMD cards also supports AMD blockchain drivers.
- some changes to further reduce stale shares a bit.
- added "-minspeedtime" option.
- added statistics for shares accepting time (min/max/average), press "s" to see it.
- updated Remote Manager to show shares accepting time.
- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.

FEATURES:

- Supports applying optimized memory timings (straps) on-the-fly in Windows, without flashing VBIOS (currently Polaris, Vega, Nvidia 10xx cards only), up to 20% speedup. Best straps for Ethereum are included.
- Supports new "dual mining" mode: mining both Ethereum and Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak at the same time, with no impact on Ethereum mining speed. Ethereum-only mining mode is supported as well.
- Effective Ethereum mining speed is higher by 3-5% because of a completely different miner code - much less invalid and outdated shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels.
- Supports both AMD and nVidia cards, even mixed.
- No DAG files.
- Supports all Stratum versions for Ethereum: can be used directly without any proxies with all pools that support eth-proxy, qtminer or miner-proxy.
- Supports Ethereum and Siacoin solo mining.
- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Decred.
- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Siacoin.
- Supports Stratum for Lbry, Pascal, Blake2s, Keccak.
- Supports failover.
- Displays detailed mining information and hashrate for every card.
- Supports remote monitoring and management.
- Supports GPU selection, built-in GPU overclocking features and temperature management.
- Supports Ethereum forks (Expanse, etc).
- Windows and Linux versions.


This version is POOL/SOLO for Ethereum, POOL for Decred, POOL/SOLO for Siacoin, POOL for Lbry, POOL for Pascal, POOL for Blake2s, POOL for Keccak.

For old AMD cards, Catalyst (Crimson) 15.12 is required for best performance and compatibility.
For AMD 4xx/5xx cards (Polaris) you can use any recent drivers.
For AMD cards, set the following environment variables, especially if you have 2...4GB cards:

GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

This miner is free-to-use, however, current developer fee is 1%, every hour the miner mines for 36 seconds for developer.
For all 2GB cards and 3GB cards devfee is 0%, so on these cards you can mine all ETH forks without devfee, this miner is completely free in this case.
If some cards are 2...3GB and some >3GB, 2...3GB cards still mine for you during devfee time, only cards that have more than 3GB memory will be used for devfee mining. Miner displays appropriate messages during startup.
Second coin (Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak) is mined without developer fee.
So the developer fee is 0...1%, if you don't agree with the dev fee - don't use this miner, or use "-nofee" option.
Attempts to cheat and remove dev fee will cause a bit slower mining speed (same as "-nofee 1") though miner will show same hashrate.
Miner cannot just stop if cheat is detected because creators of cheats would know that the cheat does not work and they would find new tricks. If miner does not show any errors or slowdowns, they are happy.

This version is for recent AMD videocards only: 7xxx, 2xx and 3xx, 2GB or more. Recent nVidia videocards are supported as well.

CONFIGURATION FILE

You can use "config.txt" file instead of specifying options in command line.
If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config.txt" file for options.
If there is only one option in the command line, it must be configuration file name.
If there are two or more options in the command line, miner will take all options from the command line, not from configuration file.
Place one option per line, if first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.

If for Ethereum-only mining:


ethpool:
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool us1.ethpool.org:3333 -ewal 0xD69af2A796A737A103F12d2f0BCC563a13900E6F -epsw x

sparkpool:
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu.sparkpool.com:3333 -ewal 0xD69af2A796A737A103F12d2f0BCC563a13900E6F -epsw x

f2pool:

Ethereum SOLO mining (assume geth is on 192.168.0.1:8545):

FAILOVER

Use "epools.txt" and "dpools.txt" files to specify additional pools (you can use "-epoolsfile" and "-dpoolsfile" options to use different filenames).
These files have text format, one pool per line. Every pool has 3 connection attempts.
Miner disconnects automatically if pool does not send new jobs for a long time or if pool rejects too many shares.
If the first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored.
Do not change spacing, spaces between parameters and values are required for parsing.
If you need to specify "," character in parameter value, use two commas - ,, will be treated as one comma.
You can reload "epools.txt" and "dpools.txt" files in runtime by pressing "r" key.
Pool specified in the command line is "main" pool, miner will try to return to it every 30 minutes if it has to use some different pool from the list.
If no pool was specified in the command line then first pool in the failover pools list is main pool.
You can change 30 minutes time period to some different value with "-ftime" option, or use "-ftime 0" to disable switching to main pool.
You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt", "dpools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.
You can also select current pool in runtime by pressing "e" or "d" key.


REMOTE MONITORING/MANAGEMENT

Miner supports remote monitoring/management via JSON protocol over raw TCP/IP sockets. You can also get recent console text lines via HTTP.
Start "EthMan.exe" from "Remote management" subfolder (Windows version only).
Check built-in help for more information. "API.txt" file contains more details about protocol.


KNOWN ISSUES

- AMD cards: on some cards you can notice non-constant mining speed in dual mode, sometimes speed becomes a bit slower. This issue was mostly fixed in recent versions, but not completely.
- AMD cards: in Linux with gpu-pro drivers, the list of GPUs may differ from the list of temperatures. You can use -di to change order of GPUs to match both lists.
- nVidia cards: dual mode is not so effective as for AMD cards.
- Windows 10 Defender recognizes miner as a virus, some antiviruses do the same. Miner is not a virus, add it to Defender exceptions.
I write miners since 2014. Most of them are recognized as viruses by some paranoid antiviruses, perhaps because I pack my miners to protect them from disassembling, perhaps because some people include them into their botnets, or perhaps these antiviruses are not good, I don't know. For these years, a lot of people used my miners and nobody confirmed that my miner stole anything or did something bad.
Note that I can guarantee clean binaries only for official links in my posts on this forum (bitcointalk). If you downloaded miner from some other link - it really can be a virus.
However, my miners are closed-source so I cannot prove that they are not viruses. If you think that I write viruses instead of good miners - do not use this miner, or at least use it on systems without any valuable data.


TROUBLESHOOTING

1. Install Catalyst v15.12 for old AMD cards; for Fury, Polaris and Vega cards use latest blockchain drivers.
2. Disable overclocking.
3. Set environment variables as described above.
4. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB or more.
5. Reboot computer.
6. Check hardware, risers.
7. Set some timeout in .bat file before starting miner at system startup (30sec or even a minute), and try "-ethi 4" to check if it is more stable. It can help if miner is not stable on some system.


FAQ

- Miner works too slowly when I mine ETH/ETC but works fine when I mine some ETH fork.
Check if you enabled "Compute Mode" in AMD drivers, also you can press "y" key to turn on "Compute Mode" in AMD drivers for all cards (Windows only).

- I cannot mine ETH/ETC with Nvidia 3GB card in Windows 10.
Windows 10 internally allocates about 20% of GPU memory so applications can use only 80% of GPU memory. Use Windows 7 or Linux.

  [ANN] sgminer v5.6.1 - optimized X11/X13/NeoScrypt/Lyra2RE/etc. kernel-switch miner
Posted by: Monet - 11-07-2019, 12:52 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

Hi,

At NiceHash (I'm sure you've already heard about us) we're running a multi-algo cloud mining service and multipool. Thus we're striving to get unified and feature-full GPU miner. That's why we've sponsored the integration of sph-miner + keccak (from cgminer) + x11_mod (from lasybear) + NIST5 algo and some more stuff into unified, runtime-kernel-switching new version of the original official sgminer. sgminer has since then been redefined from "scrypt-miner" to "GPU OpenCL miner" and thus strive to support wide range of algorithms for GPU mining. New algorithms are added over time as well as some new features.

For the record: I'm not a developer of sgminer and haven't contributed any coding for sgminer, but was active in proposing and coordinating new features development. All the credits go to the many sgminer developers, listed in arhiv. NiceHash organization took over the initiative to continue development on this widely spread open-source mining software, therefore the most recent source code and releases can be found in the information below.


RELEASES

Binaries downloads are available here:
https://mega.nz/#F!BOoVhaBZ!fymDAOaLYFGWBDm9vWqdMQ

Please note: sgminer is still in development, you should regularly, so there are might be still some open issues and minor bugs present.

Here is an example of multi-algorithm configuration (you can add many pool-specific options):

Code:
{
"pools" : [
{
"name" : "NiceHash_X11",
"url" : "stratum+tcp://stratum nicehash com:3336",
"user" : "btc_addr",
"pass" : "x",
"nfactor" : "10",
"algorithm" : "darkcoin-mod"
},
{
"name" : "NiceHash_X13",
"url" : "stratum+tcp://stratum nicehash com:3337",
"user" : "btc_addr",
"pass" : "x",
"nfactor" : "10",
"algorithm" : "marucoin-mod"
},
{
"name" : "NiceHash_SHA3",
"url" : "stratum+tcp://stratum nicehash com:3338",
"user" : "btc_addr",
"pass" : "x",
"nfactor" : "10",
"algorithm" : "maxcoin"
},
{
"name" : "NiceHash_Scrypt-N",
"url" : "stratum+tcp://stratum nicehash com:3335",
"user" : "btc_addr",
"pass" : "x",
"nfactor" : "11",
"algorithm" : "zuikkis"
},
{
"name" : "NiceHash_Scrypt",
"url" : "stratum+tcp://stratum nicehash com:3333",
"user" : "btc_addr",
"pass" : "x",
"nfactor" : "10",
"algorithm" : "zuikkis"
}
]
"failover-only" : true,
"failover-switch-delay" : "300",
"queue" : "0",
... other configuration settings ...

Of course you can choose any and as many pools you prefer, NiceHash pools were given just as an example. Your miner will be able to switch to different pools using different algorithms at runtime, without any interruption and without sgminer restart. You can also set GPU settings and some other settings at a per-pool level to get optimum performance on various pools with various algorithms with a single configuration file. Now you can mine Litecoin, Dogecoin, Vertcoin, Darkcoin, Maxcoin, MaruCoin ... you-name-it with a single unified sgminer.

Note: sgminer v5 intoduced new stratum extranonce subscription; some pools ignores connection when sgminer sends extranonce subscription request, therefore you just have to add "no-extranonce" : true setting to the pool config for pools, that doesn't support extranonce-subscribe - this kind of pools appears Dead even if they are suposed to be working fine (you should never use this setting on nicehash pools since nicehash stratum proxy provides better efficiency with extranonce subscription)

Code:
{
"url" : "stratum+tcp://some-pool:3333",
"no-extranonce" : true,
"user" : "username",
"pass" : "x",
}

Or if you're using command line options, example for quark mining:

Code:
sgminer --algorithm quarkcoin --no-extranonce -I 18 -g 1 -w 256 -o stratum+tcp://some-quark-pool:3333 -u ... -p ...

All interested developers, please, feel free to contribute to the code by simply pushing Pull request to the Github repository (see above).

Again, thanks to all the great developers of sgminer and kind regards
