Information UPDATE: MAINTENANCE WORK ON SKYWIRE
Posted by: skyguy - Yesterday, 05:58 AM - Forum: Miscellaneous - No Replies

We migrated the discovery node and currently we are running some tests so that everything is working as expected.

We need everyone to pay attention to this announcement and the others that will follow as we will ask everyone to switch to the new discovery node after the tests are done.

Shortly after this the whitelisting system will also be available on whitelist.skycoin.com for registration.

We ask again for your patience and understanding in this migration process .
Thank you!!!

Please join @SkywirePSA to get the latest announcements as we will keep you updated through this channel!!!

Is anyone else having trouble accessing the whitelisting page?  I have not been able to get in for two days... at least.  Eventually it times out.  Hope this is the correct place to post this.  If not, I'm positive someone... everyone will let me know.

  DIY Skyminer on raspberry pi devices
Posted by: mfnx - 07-11-2019, 11:15 AM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (3)

INTRO

I wrote some simple scripts to setup your skiminer on raspberries pi, available on github.

Here is a short and extremely easy tutorial to set up your skyminer using raspberry pi (RB) devices. I used Raspberries pi 3 B+ with OS raspbian lite.


FLASH YOUR SD CARD

I downloaded the official OS raspbian lite. I chose the lite version because we don't need a desktop environment, the install is faster, and occupies les space (less than 1Gb).

Flash your SD card from:

Before removing the SD card from your pc/mac, you can activate ssh by adding a file named ssh (no extension) to the visible part of the SD card. Upon the next reboot of your RB, ssh will be activated. From windows, use MobaXterm, PuTTY or similar to connect to your RB with ssh. If you can't figure out how to do this, connect a monitor and a keyboard to your RB and proceed to the next step.


FIRST BOOT AFTER INSTALL

Let's boot the RB.

If you did not activate ssh, you can simply connect a monitor (HDMI) and a keyboard (USB) to the RB. In that case, you first log in with user pi and password raspberry. Also, you can now activate ssh from your RB:

Code:
sudo touch /boot/ssh
reboot

Upon reboot, you will be able to connect to your RB with ssh as described above and get rid of the monitor and keyboard. You can continue the installation process without ssh. However, I recommend you use ssh in order to overcome problems like bad configured keyboards. Also, it's really more comfortable to use ssh.

You can now connect to your RB from any device connected to your local network. For Linux/Mac, open a terminal and write:

Code:
ssh pi@<IP_OF_YOUR_RB>

For windows, use MobaXterm, PuTTY or similar.

From here on, it doesn't matter whether you connect through ssh or use the RB with monitor and keyboard setup. Let's log into our RB.

The default password for the user pi is raspberry. Once logged in, you can reset that password with:

Code:
sudo passwd pi

Also, reset the password of the root, as we will need the root in the coming sections:

Code:
sudo passwd root

Other useful commands:

Code:
sudo -i # or simply su to become root
sudo raspi-config # to setup basic stuff like wifi connection, timezone, keyboard, etc


SKYWIRE MANAGER AND NODES

One RB must run the skywire manager which manages the skywire nodes. That same RB can also run a node. The installation described below is exactly the same for each RB. However, you have to choose which RB will run the manager:

  1. Choose the RB which will run the manager
  2. Make sure the RB is connected to your local network (with wifi or ethernet)
  3. From a browser on any device connected to your local network, go to your router (typically 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1)
  4. Locate your RB and set its IP as static
  5. Write the static IP down. Let's call it STATIC_IP (we'll refer to it later).
This is important! It makes sure that the IP of your RB which runs the manager (i.e. STATIC_IP) does not change. That way, the other RB nodes will be able to find the manager easily.


INSTALLATION

This is actually the easiest part! Log into your RB providing your user (pi) and password, download the install scripts from github, and execute them. Once logged in:

Code:
# first install git to download the scripts from github
sudo apt-get install git

# cd to the directory we want to download the scripts
cd /home/pi # for example

# download the scripts
git clone https://github.com/MFnx/skywire.git
cd skywire # cd into the downloaded skywire folder

# become root
sudo -i

# execute the install script
bash setup.sh --all --manager-ip STATIC_IP # STATIC_IP is the IP you wrote down before

At the end, your RB will reboot. You can now remove the folder /home/pi/skywire if you want to. Do the same for each RB, using the same STATIC_IP every time. The skywire services are run automatically upon each rebooot of your RB (give it a minute or two), so you won't have to do that manually.


SKYWIRE MANAGER

You can access the skywire manager from a browser on any device connected to your local network. Just enter STATIC_IP:8000. There you'll be able to monitor your nodes (you'll find the public and private keys there).

Z-ENEMY VER 1.10 (PUBLIC)

For Windows (Cuda 9.1)
zealot/enemy-1.10 (z-enemy) From: Dk & Enemy

Fixed compatibility issues that resulted in performance degradation with some non-yiimp pools. Now you'll see the expected hashrate on them (suprnova).

Kernels speed improvements : (1.09a vs 1.10) +1-2% total (all algos) and (1.09b vs 1.10) +1-2% for x16r &x16s.

- Support & impove new algo : Tribus (-a tribus) , recommended intensity for Tribus 20-21. +5% speed vs 1.09b ( Service release)


First time or troubleshooting x16:
- First time users - ver. 1.12 works on Cuda 9.1&9.2 and it is recommended to make sure you've updated your NVIDIA drivers. You can find drivers here ver., 398+++
- Next important thing is intensity. We recommend intensity -19 at first, however if your PC has 8GB or more, fast SSD, and big swap file on it you may use -20/21.
- X16r algo is very wild and eratic. *Very important* Make sure to have enough power reserve on PSU. Please be sure you have a minimum 20% headroom on your PSU or set your PL on 70-80% usage.
- Using +core and +mem is useful but, use no OC at first until you verify stability. 


Performance and fine tuning x16: 
- This release z-enemy 1.12 is reported to be more stable when it using higher PL (90-110%) and +core and +memory overclocking, feel free to experiment with it.
- Updating drivers can provide more gains
- Recommended intensity is 20, set 21 only if you know what you are doing. ( 16GB RAM or/and good SWAP file on SSD) Use caution
- Recommended memory 0 or +
- Recommended core +50+150 ( 1800-1900MHz 1080 Ti)
- Overclock slowly and allow plenty of time to verify stability (12-24hrs) before making anymore adjustments. x16r is a very chaotic algorithm so just because it works for 1 hr doesn't mean you can't crash over longer time. Sometimes hash order can lead to 2000+mhz and crash system. Keep in mind – overclocking is always at your own risk!
- Yiimp pools recommend manual diff (-p d=16) - for small farms or (-p d=48 ) - for good farms like 5-6 1080 Ti If you need to name your rigs as well as set diff you may try -p rigname,d=16

Diff x16 can be calculated by mutliplying the following:
Number of 1060's multiplied by 3-4
Number of 70ti's or 80's multiply by 4-8
Number of 80ti's multiply by 6-12

example: If you have 3 1060's then diff would be 9-12
if you have 8 70ti's then your diff would be 48-96


Dev fee:
- low dev fee 1% 
- Dev fee will start randomly when miner is first started. After 1% of time mined then automatically switches back to user pool.

Information about x16: 

Every block contain 16 random algos.

All algos have FastMedium and Slow speeds so depending on the order and what speeds they are will determine your hashrate at any given time.

Fast: Blake (Blk),Bmw512(Bmw), Keccak (Kck), Skein(Ske), Shabal(Shb), Sha512(Sha)
Medium: Jh512 (Jh5), Luffa (Luf), Cube(Cub), Shavite (Shv), Fugue (Fug), Whirlpool (Wrl)
Slow: Groestl (Gro), Simd (Smd), Echo (Ech), Hamsi (Ham)

Example:
Block 181085, difficulty 20228.532 
Hashorder: EchFugBmwShaJh5FugShvEchSmdBmwHamWrlJh5KckSkeHam

Means first algo is Slow Echo (Ech)> next Medium Fugue (Fug) > …> last Hamsi (Ham). The more fast algos in a block is what drives miner speed to the moon! (more MH)


Samples:

Yiimp pools:

z-enemy -a phi -o stratum+tcp ://pool bsod pw:6667 -u LQCifDiNVXjM_your_wallet_CUqZJBa75p11 -p x

z-enemy -a x16r -o stratum+tcp ://yiimp eu:3636 -u RWgpF9GefjD_your_wallet_1gQmQjpYtYt.GTX950 -p d=3 -i 19

z-enemy -a bitcore -o stratum+tcp://yiimp eu:3556 -u 1D2dKSprpK_your_wallet_1wa8b2LnJ826uf -p x -i 20

Suprnova pool:

z-enemy -a x16r -o stratum+tcp //rvn suprnova cc:6667 -u your_Login.your_worker_name -p x -i 20


FAQ:

I cannot start miner, it says I'm missing msvcr120.dll?
Download and reinstall drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx

My miner crashed - cuda error in funk `cuda_check_cpu_setTarget` why ?
This error is caused by overclocking, lower your GPU and VRAM clocks.

Latest drivers recommended?
Yes however, sometimes a new driver can cause an issue and using a previous version may work better. You will need to verify. We recommend at least NVIDIA drivers of 390+++ or 398.xx

What is restart-fix.reg in windows download folder?
This file will fix pop-up window and lets the miner restart after crash. Run once.

How many GPU's can I run?
We have confirmed reports on 19 cards

Is there an easy way to auto restart miner if it crashes? 
Yes, check our samples *.cmd file in windows build. Like:
Confusedtart
z-enemy -a phi -o stratum+tcp://pool bsod pw:6667 -u LQCifDiNV_YOUR_WALLET_F3CUqZJBa75123 -p x
goto start

Does z-enemy 1.12 not support api?
Yes, try --api-remote and/or --api-allow= ( simple 0/0 )

z-enemy no supports ccminer.conf default value loading from .conf file ?
z-enemy support config.json

  SRBMiner Cryptonight AMD GPU Miner V1.9.0 - native algo switching
Posted by: Monet - 06-27-2019, 07:48 AM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

SRBMiner Cryptonight AMD GPU Miner V1.9.0

Windows only

Download V1.9.0:

Mega :
Download SRB_Miner

If you have a Vega, and want to mine V7 algos, use Adrenaline 18.6.1 drivers, if you want to mine Heavy algos, use Adrenaline 18.3.4

Supports Nicehash & SSL/TLS encrypted connections
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================
Significant hashrate increase (up to 15%) on VEGA56/64/FE/VII
Small hashrate increase on RX cards

ATTENTION:

From V1.4.0 the miner uses a separate pools.txt file, where you define your pools, wallet, etc.
Config from older versions that includes pool related data, won’t be used!

Supported algos:

Cryptonight [normal]
Cryptonight Lite [lite]
Cryptonight V7 [normalv7]
Cryptonight Lite V7 [litev7]
Cryptonight Heavy [heavy]
Cryptonight Haven [haven]
Cryptonight Fast [fast]
Cryptonight BitTubeV2 [bittubev2]
Cryptonight StelliteV4 [stellitev4]
Cryptonight ArtoCash [artocash]
Cryptonight Alloy [alloy]
Cryptonight B2N [b2n]
Cryptonight MarketCash [marketcash]
Cryptonight Italo [italo]
Supports Nicehash, Nicehash V7 & SSL/TLS encrypted connections

DevFee:

Low DevFee (0.85%) ; every ~2 hours 1 minute mining for the dev
Non-agressive DevFee mining ; if miner can’t connect to DevFee pool, no problem, switching back to user pool ASAP

Extra:

Watchdog that monitors your GPU threads, if they stop hashing for a few minutes, miner restarts itself
Hash monitor, if 5 minute average hash falls under the value you define, miner restarts itself
Set system shutdown temperature, to protect your GPU’s from overheating
Restart (disable/enable) Vega gpu’s with devcon before mining
API for rig monitoring

Tips:

If you leave intensity on 0 it will play safe, so in many cases you can increase that value to get better results
For better results set double_threads to true, and leave intensity on 0
If you get an error that says it can’t create scratchpad buffer, you have to lower intensity
Largest intensity setting won’t always give you the best hashrate. Experiment and find the best setting for your GPU.

Update infos :

Don’t copy newer version of miner over old one, or if you do make sure you delete .srb files from Cache folder before running it!

SRB-RESTARTER
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SRB-Restarter is a tool that monitors the main SRBMiner process, and if it's not running for some reason (like an app crash for example), it will run the script you specify (restart miner).

Only 3 parameters :

--interval value_in_seconds [def. is 10]
Specifies how often to check is the SRBMiner process running

--instance number
Use it if you run multiple SRBMiner instances on the same machine, example is below
You must use the following file naming :
SRBMiner-CN-n.exe where n is the instance number

--run filename [name of .bat file to run]
Name of .bat you want to run if SRBMiner process in not running


Note:
Miner is considered 'not running' after 2 checks!

Examples:

1.
SRB-Restarter.exe
[This will set interval to 10 seconds, and start.bat if SRBMiner process is not running. It will monitor for a process named SRBMiner-CN.exe]

2.
SRB-Restarter.exe --interval 5 --run turtle-coin.bat

GPU MINING


Native overclocking
Use the Native overclocking to control the clock speed, voltage, power and fan 
properties of your GPU's. Awesome Miner provides the unique feature of
performing overclocking operations for both AMD and nVidia GPU's without using
any external applications.

In addition to the native overclocking feature, clocking can also be performed via
remote control of MSI Afterburner.

The overclocking can automatically be applied at a large scale across an entire
mining farm based on the current mining algorithm.
Profit switching
The Profit switching feature will optimize the mining for maximum profitability 
based on statistics from both standard mining pools and multi-coin pools. Access all
popular mining pools with just a click to get started with the profit based mining
right away.

Use the benchmark to let Awesome Miner test multiple mining algorithms and
mining software and measure the hashrate and power usage for each of them to
optimize the profit switching decisions.

Power consumption
The current Power consumption is displayed for both AMD and nVidia GPU's,
independent of which mining software being used. The mining profit is calculated
and displayed in real time based on the current power consumption, hashrate and
the current mining pool.

Any crypto currency, Any software
Includes support for over 40 of the most popular mining software. Several hundred
crypto currencies are included with statistics and revenue information. Full
flexibility to add and deploy any custom mining software, algorithm, crypto
currency and mining pool.

GPU monitoring

Bitmain Antminer is a very popular ASIC miner and all Antminer models are fully 
supported, including features for automatic configuration of Privileged API access,
firmware upgrades and configuration of default pools.

Awesome Miner can also interact with custom Antminer firmware provided by
Braiins-OS and AsicFW.

Automation and SSH
Automate the mining operations by defining triggers and macros where the ASIC
miner can be instructed to perform operations like changing mining pool or
rebooting the ASIC miner. Any SSH command can be sent to an ASIC miner, for
example to force a reboot or shudown.

Profit switching
Profit switching on ASIC miners uses profitability information for mining pools and
coins to prioritize mining on the most profitable pool.


FEATURES


Notifications and Recovery
Use the predefined rules or define custom rules to take full control of the mining 
operations. Detection of high temperatures, slow mining progress, hanging miners
and disconnected miners. Automatic restart of miners, with fully customizable
triggers and actions. Define custom rules to automate tasks and setup schedules.

Notifications are displayed in the user interface and can also be sent by e-mail or
web hooks. With a Cloud Services subscription also as Telegram App notifications
and SMS messages.

API
Use the HTTP API to interact with Awesome Miner from external applications and 
get access to monitoring information about the miners. Use the API to provision
and control the mining via external applications.

Use the powerful built-in C# script engine to create customized triggers and actions.
Develop custom C# scripts for monitoring and performing mining and pool
operations.

Dashboard & Mining history
The dashboard gives an overview of all running miners and their total performance,
revenue, profit and power consumption.

View long-term mining history, generate charts and export CSV-data to Excel for
even more powerful data processing and visualization.

Organize miners
Organize your miners using miner groups to make management of larger number
of miners easier. Operations can be performed either on individual miners or on
one or many groups of miners.

Define and assign tags to miners to filter and make it easier to identify properties of
a miner.

Templates
Use templates to apply a predefined configuration to one or many miners in
a single operation.

Balance monitoring
Monitor your assests using Coin wallet balance feature and the Pool balance
feature for the most popular mining pools.

  Claymore's Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v14.7 (Windows/Linux)
Posted by: Monet - 06-24-2019, 07:04 AM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

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

Latest 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.


DOWNLOAD LINK: MEGA - Download Claymore's Miner v14.7

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:
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eth.f2pool.com:8008 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -eworker rig1

nanopool:
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -eworker rig1

nicehash:
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool stratum+tcp://daggerhashimoto.eu.nicehash.com:3353 -ewal 1LmMNkiEvjapn5PRY8A9wypcWJveRrRGWr -epsw x -esm 3 -allpools 1 -estale 0

Ethereum forks mining:

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool exp-us.dwarfpool.com:8018 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -allcoins -1

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 v5.6.0 - optimized X11/X13/NeoScrypt/Lyra2RE/etc. kernel-switch miner
Posted by: Monet - 06-22-2019, 07:42 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

Quote: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!jUcHXQiB!cWSlLt6spjeSkh2E68tH_g

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

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

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 v14.7

Download miner:

Claymore's Dual Miner Manager v14.7

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.
