Notes

Antivirus Software Reports
CryptoDredge is not a piece of malicious software. You may try to add an exception in antivirus software you use.

Rejected Shares
There are many reasons for rejected shares. The primary reasons are:

  • high network latency

  • overloaded mining server

  • aggressive graphics card overclocking
Watchdog
If you are using a third-party watchdog, you can disable the built-in watchdog by using --no-watchdog option.

Example:
Code:
CryptoDredge -a <ALGO> -o stratum+tcp://<POOL> -u <WALLET_ADDRESS> --no-watchdog

Several Instances After a While
It seems that you are using an own restart mechanism of CryptoDredge (see the Watchdog item).

Crash Reporting
If the built-in watchdog is enabled then CryptoDredge will generate and send us the report. You can disable error reporting with --no-crashreport option. Allowing CryptoDredge to send us automatic reports helps us prioritize what to fix and improve in the future versions.

Crash reports won't include any personal information about you, but they might include:

  • Operating System version

  • Driver version

  • Miner configuration

  • Application crash data
MTP Algorithm

System Requirements:

  • GPUs with at least 5 GB of memory

  • There are no special CPU and RAM requirements, 4 GB must be sufficient
In comparison to other algorithms, MTP requires transferring large amounts of data to the pool. This may be a problem for limited and slow connections.

The miner has to do some extra work every time that the pool sends a new "job", so an average hashrate will be a bit slow.

Developer fee is 2% for MTP.

Argon2d (NIM) Algorithm

If you encounter many "invalid share: invalid pow" errors from the pool, set --hashrate option to calculate the start difficulty.

Features:
To get help just start zm without any arguments

Code:

ZM 0.6.2, dstm's ZCASH/Equihash Cuda Miner

Usage:
zm --server hostname --port port_nr --user user_name
[--pass password] [options]...

zm --cfg-file[=path]

Stratum:
--server Stratum server hostname
prefix hostname with 'ssl://' for encrypted
connections - e.g. ssl://mypool.com
--port Stratum server port number
--user Username
--pass Worker password

Options:
--help Print this help
--list-devices List available cuda devices

--dev Space separated list of cuda devices to use.
If this option is not given all available devices
are used.

--time Enable output of timestamps
--color colorize the output

--logfile [=path] Append logs to the file named by 'path'
If 'path' is not given append to 'zm.log' in
current working directory.
--noreconnect Disable automatic reconnection on network errors.

--temp-target =dev_id:temp-target[,dev_id:temp-target] ...
In C - If set, enables temperature controller.
The workload of each GPU will be continuously
adjusted such that the temperature stays around
this value. It is recommended to set your fan speed
to a constant value when using this setting.
Example: --temp-target=0:65,2:70

--intensity =dev_id:intensity[,dev_id:intensity] ...
Reduce the load which is put on the GPU - valid
intensity range ]1.0-0.0[.
Example: --intensity=0:0.893,2:0.8

--telemetry [=ip[Image: clear.png]ort]. Starts telemetry server. Telemetry data
can be accessed using a web browser(http) or by json-rpc.
If no arguments are given the server listens on
127.0.0.1:2222 - Example: --telemetry=0.0.0.0:2222
Valid port range [1025-65535]

--cfg-file [=path] Use configuration file. All additional command
line options are ignored - configuration is done only
through configuration file. If 'path' is not given
use 'zm.cfg' in current working directory.

--pool =hostname,port_nr,user_name[,pass]
Setup additional failover pools.

Example:
zm --server servername.com --port 1234 --user username

Brick Pi Skyminer Setup brickwall
Posted by: nodejunky - 06-13-2019, 04:28 PM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (4)

Hey everyone!

I've tried every method I can find with no luck but, I'm so close to having a full cluster of Pi's but I seem to be slipping up somewhere, I'm going to use the guide by adhaelon I tried it quickly with 2 Pi's but could not get them to connect with them.

Maybe my router setup is not good.

I will be using the pre-configured Raspian-skywire image on 32gb EVO+ SD's.

My hardware is:

8 x Raspberry Pi's (a few different versions)
2 x Netgear 5 port gigabit switches
1 x Netgear D6200 router (not my main internet router)

Is there any updates I should consider to the guide by adhaelon 

Any pointers much appreciated is there an IRC or Live chat room where someone could assist me?

I have a Hub 5 type A in the process of getting openWRT onto it but will need to use the D6200 for now if possible.

Thanks for reading my ramble so stressed tried so many methods! 

Cheers!

  NoDevFee - for Claymore`s Dual Ethereum and Phoenix miner
Posted by: Monet - 06-12-2019, 07:28 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

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

Version 14.0.0 Beta


[b]features of the program
[/b]


  • 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)

[b]cons of the program[/b]

  • 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%.

[b]in the future[/b]

  • monitor farm without white ip

  • Adding other Crypto-Currency

  • Adding other pools

  • Creating website

  • Improve stability and increase functionality

[b]Suported pools[/b]

  • Ethermine.org

  • Nanopool.org

  • f2pool.com

  • dwarfpool.com

  • nicehash.com

[b]DOWNLOAD LINK: MEGA - [/b]https://mega.nz/#F!nZ1wSKwJ!i6Q2HKNvJ4JhCCWqY55gqQ

Dev Fee's - 0.05%


[b]FEATURES:[/b]

- 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.

[b]CONFIGURATION FILE[/b]

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

[b]FAILOVER[/b]

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.


[b]REMOTE MONITORING/MANAGEMENT[/b]

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.


[b]KNOWN ISSUES[/b]

- 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.


[b]TROUBLESHOOTING[/b]

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
- subtle performance improvements
- Tested with Radeon Adrenalin Driver 18.5.1

Cast XMR Version 1.3.0 (2018/6/29)
- Performance improvement for job switches with multiple GPUs
- Support for BitTube (TUBE) V4 Pow Update which introduces the new algo CryptoNightTUBE-Heavy aka CN Saber. Stay on --algo=5 to switch automatically from CryptoNightIPBC-Lite to CryptoNightTUBE-Heavy when the update is happening (approx. 2nd July). Please note that the hash rate will drop as it is a switch from a Lite to a Heavy variant.

Cast XMR Version 1.2.5 (2018/6/19)
- Support for CryptoNight-Fast introduced with the Masari (MSR) update. Set --algo=8 to mine Masari (MSR). CryptoNight-Fast will produce higher hash rates than classic CryptoNight, typical hash rates are:

- Vega56, 945 Mhz MemClock: 3700 Hashes/s
- VegaFE, 1025 Mhz MemClock: 3900 Hashes/s
- RX 470/570, 2250 Mhz MemClock: 1550 Hashes/s

Cast XMR Version 1.2.0 (2018/6/12)
- Fix for "unauthenticated shares" pool error
- Support for the upcoming Haven (XHV) V3 update. In case you are mining Haven set --algo=7 now. Cast will then automatically switch to CryptoNightXHV-Heavy when the network update is happening.

Cast XMR Version 1.1.5 (2018/6/7)
- Fix for mixed up device order
- Support for Stellite (XTL) V4 Update. Add --algo=6 in case you are mining Stellite. It will automatically switch to CryptoNightXTL when the network update is happening.
- Stability fixes

Cast XMR Version 1.1.0 (2018/6/1)
- All new --intensity option to specify the memory allocation in the range of 0 to 10, upto 12 for Vega Frontier Edition. The default setting will correspond with the settings of version 1.0 and are displayed at startup.

- Includes the switch-radeon-gpu command line tool to restart GPUs, switch on/off HBCC, Compute Mode and Large Pages
- Nicehash supports now up to 24 GPUs
- --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 0.9.6 (2018/04/17)
- CryptoNight-Heavy fix for very low hash rates when HBCC Memory Segment is enabled
- HBCC Memory Segment performance hint for Vega64 when mining CryptoNightV7
- Improvement for 4GB versions of RX 470/480/570/580 when mining CryptoNightV7

Cast XMR Version 0.9.5 (2018/04/14)

- Sumokoin (SUMO)
- Haven (XHV)

Cast XMR Version 0.9.2 (2018/03/29)
- Improvements for RX Vegas that achieve 99% the performance of the Blockchain Compute Beta driver with the latest standard Radeon Driver 18.3.4

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. Read more about it here
- 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

  [ANN]Bminer: a fast Equihash/Ethash/CuckooCycle miner for AMD/NVIDIA GPUs 15.4.0
Posted by: Monet - 06-09-2019, 12:27 AM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

Bminer is a highly optimized cryptocurrency miner that runs on modern AMD/NVIDIA GPUs (Maxwell and Pascal, i.e. GPUs that have compute capability 5.0 or above). Bminer is one of the fastest publicly available miners today -- we use various techniques including tiling and pipelining to realize the full potentials of the hardware.

Bminer also comes with REST APIs to facilitate production deployments (e.g., mining farms).


Bminer supports mining Equihash-based coins (e.g., Zcash) with 2% of devfee.
Bminer supports mining Zhash / Equihash 144,5 based coins (e.g. BitcoinGold, BitcoinZ) with 2% of devfee.
Bminer supports mining Ethash-based coins (e.g., Ethereum) with 0.65% of devfee.
Bminer also supports dual mining mode - mining Ethash-based coins (e.g. Ethereum) and Blake14r-based coins (e.g. Decred) / Blake2s-based coins (e.g. Verge) at the same time. Devfee for the dual mining mode is 1.3%, and the second coin (e.g. Decred/Verge) is mined without devfee.
Bminer supports mining Tensority-based coins (e.g.,) with 2% of devfee.

GPU Tuning

BTM + ETH

  • Suitable `secondary intensity` depends on the ratio of `core performance / memory bandwidth`

  • GPU with relative low memory bandwidth, eg. 1070ti, could tune down the `di`. Otherwise tune up.

  • The ratio changes with different `core`, `tdp`, `memory` settings when overclock GPU.
BTM

  • Bytom mining performance depend heavily on GPU core, instead of GPU memory.

  • Miner can gain beffer hashrate if tuning down GPU memory frequency.

  • For example, using MSI Afterburner to turn down GPU memory to -500.

  Claymore's Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v14.6 (Windows/Linux)
Posted by: Monet - 06-06-2019, 08:04 PM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - No Replies

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

Latest 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.


DOWNLOAD LINK: MEGA - Download Claymore's Dual Ethereum Miner v14.6


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. 

FAQ #2:

1. Please read Readme.txt or original post of this thread for command line samples, options description and FAQ.

Speed

In short, JCE is:

Crazy fast on non-AES 64-bits, usually 35-40% faster than other miners
Compared to other 32-bits miners, still faster on non-AES 32-bits, sometimes beating even the other miners 64-bits versions
And still faster on non-AES 32-bits Cryptonight-Heavy, with usually +50% speed.
Barely faster than the other best on AES 64-bits, beating them by ~1%, +2.8% on V7 fork, +4% on Cryptonight-Heavy
Also a lot faster on AES 32-bits, but it’s a rare case (mostly seen on Intel Atom tablets)
Here’s a benchmark against three other common miners.

XMRStak means: the released Unified binary from github (not recompiled myself)
XMRig means: the respective best released binary gcc (32-bits) and msvc (64-bits) from github (not recompiled myself)

Getting started

If you’re new at mining Cryptonight, here’s the simplest way:

Choose the coin to mine, see the list below. The most common is Monero.
Get a wallet, that’s a ~95 character long identifier. If you don’t have one yet, you can create it
Choose a pool to mine on, and its port. For example Pool pool minexmr com and port 4444
Edit the start.bat that’s shipped in the .zip
Change the example POOL by yours
Change the example PORT by yours
Change the example WALLET by yours
You can leave the default password x
(Optional) If your coin is exotic, maybe you also need to change FORK=0 to another number. See the list in the start bat
Run start bat

Basic topics

Need .net 4.0 and >

Q. Is it free (as in beer, as in freedom)?
No and no. It has fees, and is not open source. But the program itself is free to distribute.

Q. How much cost the fees?
Current fees are:

2.0% when using at least one mining thread with non-AES architecture, or 32-bits
0.5% when using only 64-bits AES architecture
The fees are twice higher in non-AES mode and/or 32-bits because JCE offers a huge performance gain here.

Q. Will it work on my computer?
Minimum is Windows Vista 32-bits, or Linux, with a SSE2 capable CPU. 64-bits is faster, prefer it.
For best performance, Large Pages must be enabled, JCE will try to auto-configure them, but it may work or not depending on your Windows version and security configuration.

Q. What currency can I mine? On which pools?
You can mine any coin on any pool.
If your coin is listed, all is automatic.

Run the miner with --coins parameter to get the up-to-date list. Current list is:

Otherwise, if your coin is not listed, or your wallet not recognized, use the --any parameter, plus the --variation N parameter, with N the fork number, see list below. The fork detection is automatic on known coins, but manual on unknown coins. The coin list is periodically updated.

Q. Is Nicehash supported?
Yes, see list above. The Nicehash-specific Nonce is then automatically enabled.

Q. Is SSL supported?
Yes, with parameter --ssl

Q. I get only bad shares, what happens?
Your coin has probably forked. Add --variation N parameter, with N as listed below, until you find the one that works.

Advanced topics

Q. Are there requirements or dependencies?
No. JCE is just a big standalone executable.

Q. Is there a Linux version?
Yes, starting from version 0.29

Q. Is there a GPU version?
Not yet.

Q. Is there a 32-bits version?
Yes, both 32 and 64 are always in the same release, for both Linux and Windows.

Q. How many threads can I setup?
Maximum is 64 threads on 64 CPUs.

Q. Do I get a discount on fees if I use SSL?
I’m not Claymore.

Q. What is that value logged when I find a share?
The amount of hashes your pool will credit you. This is not the amount of crypto-coins.

Q. Can I plug it to a stratum proxy?
No, it must mine on a real pool on Internet.
