Title: mc2miner 0.1e - Optimized CPU/GPU Miner
Post by: mc2miner on January 05, 2014, 05:05:24 pm
INTRODUCTION

mc2miner is a MemoryCoin 2.0 miner for CPU with high performance. GPU mining is also supported. It can be used on any mining pool which implement the HTTP getwork protocol.


COMMAND LINE ARGUMENTS

--url URLSpecify the URL of the pool. The URL should starts with "http://". The pool should implement the HTTP getwork protocol. The default value is "http://work.mmcpool.com".
--threads numberSpecify the thread number for CPU mining. To achieve maximum performance, we recommend setting the thread number equivalent to your CPU thread numer, that is, for hyperthreading cores, it is counted as two threads. If you also do GPU mining on the same machine, consider setting this value by the thread number of CPU minus one, to achieve better performance of the GPU miner.
--noavxUse SSE4 instruction set instead of AVX (default). This is for those machine who does not support AVX and will slightly decrease the miner performance (~3%).
--idleTry to make the mining process in background. In current implementations we use idle priority on Windows and idle scheduler on Linux. Currently this option has no effect for GPU mining.
--gpu idUse the GPU specified by id instead of the CPU for mining. The id starts from zero. To get a full list of the GPU devices supported in your system, set id to "-1". Currently this option is not supported in Linux versions.
your wallet addressYour MMC wallet address.

You can check if your miner is actually connected to your account on the pool site in Workers area.

First 30 seconds after start and 30 seconds more for evey running hour miner will mine for its developers to support further performance, functionality and compatibility enhancements.


CHANGELOG

0.1eadded GPU mining for Windows
0.1dsupport AMD CPUs now (personally I don't have one so I can't test)
0.1cfixed hanging when threads >8 in the linux version
added "start_mining" script to auto detect instruction set and processor core number in the linux version
0.1badded linux support
use mmcpool.com as default mining pool (use --url to change)
use work/min instead of share/min, invariant to network difficulty
minor bug fixes
0.1ainitial version

Djemi, No, he is not yvg1900 :)

But as soon as we have another miner dev, I will jump in, too.

MMC support in yam will come. I am not checking which pool is technically advanced enough to be first picked.

The best one was xram.co, but unfortunately it is closed. So we will see which one will be flrxible enough to do technically right things.

To be fair: it's about a 20% increase for Intel CPUs.

WARNING: THIS 'ALPHA' VERSION STEALS 21 OR MORE SECONDS OF YOUR CPU TIME.

No improvement really. I5 2500k is running at the same speeds.

From the reply seems more speedups on high-end CPUS ("no improvement" on i5, ~20% on i7, lot more on "24 thread server")
Is there any MMC pools who support XPT protocol? Seems better than HTTP getwork.
I don't have a MAC :(

For me it is as a miracle, do you think can optimize it more?

That maybe caused by your CPU/OS not supporting specific instruction set. At least AESNI should be supported. If AVX is not supported, try adding --noavx parameter to use SSE4 instead.

Great work!  I am seeing 4.7/s where I was seeing 3.5/sec on a 4770k.  I am also running a dual opteron with a total of 32 cores.  I am getting 7/sec.  Any chance you are working on an AMD version?  Orare the performance benefits AESNI based?

It hangs after 5s on Ubuntu, CPU is dual L5639 so it should be supported..

Edit: 8 threads works fine, anything above that makes it hang.
Edit2: Solution is just start 3 instances, so they will use 24 threads total

to see if your system supports `aes` and `avx`. if `avx` is not supported, you can use `sse4_1` by adding the `--noavx` parameter

Your CPU does not support the AVX instruction set: http://ark.intel.com/products/47920/
Using SSE4 is slower than AVX by 3% in average

I've spent some time optimizing the algorithms, now performs 20% faster than the original CPU miner (~3.5HPM on my i7).
Now it's the alpha test version, and only supports CPU with AESNI and AVX or SSE4 (use --noavx parameter) instruction sets.

Thanks. 5000MMC on its way to you. Keep up the good work.
This is exactly what you need to do with your money freetrade. I think you should create a few bounties, such as payment gateway etc

Very impressive!

On an i7 3770, I'm seeing 2.85 h/m (bundled 32bit miner) to 3.95 h/m . . 72% improvement.

You're helping to make CPUs more competitive and that's vital to the success of the whole project. Thank you.

Chrome reports "mc2miner-0.1d-win64.zip is malicious, and Chrome has blocked it." It downloads correctly on IE. Must be rapidshare.

Thanks. 5000MMC on its way to you. Keep up the good work.
Try not to include 25 seconds of donation CPU time in the next version after receiving ~$2k -- I know that you just got the tip. ;)

Intel I5 2500k stock clock gets 1.6H/m with --noavx.
LINUX Dual L5639 now gets 7.89 H/m [[up from 6.0]] --noavx --threads 256

AMD CPUs gain 8-14% using --noavx

Linux noob question:  How would I copy and install this to my Linux cloud server?  I am currently using minerd at MMC Pool, following these instructions: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=1638.0

But I would like to upgrade to this miner.

Thanks!

Linux noob question:  How would I copy and install this to my Linux cloud server?  I am currently using minerd at MMC Pool

download the file as "filename.tar.gz", then
# scp filename.tar.gz [email protected]
no need to compile and install, as it is binary...

Thanks!  I'm actually on windows here, but my cloud server is Linux.  I want to get it onto the Linux server.  When I copied the other program I used
Code: [Select]
git clone https://github.com/glitchman/mmcminer.
Naturally, that won't work here as this file is on rapidshare.  I tried
Code: [Select]
wget http://rapidshare.com/share/3BACFA7FD98BE772D770BBFFC2C900E3/mc2miner-0.1d-linux64.tar.gz which makes a something called mc2miner-0.1d-linux64.tar.gz (it's listed in red when I look at the directory).  Now what?  Or what do I need to change some syntax?

Thanks!

Hi, you could follow these steps:

1) download the file to windows
2) install a sftp client (such as https://filezilla-project.org/‎)
3) connect to your remote server (the protocal is sftp) with your login credentials
4) upload to your server

maybe not the optimal but it works..

.tar.gz is an archive file, extract it using
tar -xvzf filename.tar.gz

In the edited OP he states that it mines for 30 seconds to start and 30 seconds every hour.

This new version is also causing my Win 7 64 bit PC to crash also. MC2Miner is the only program running on it. When I switch back the delta version I get no problems.

And that's about 0.83% of your CPU time!

Well, its good to have it stated upfront nice and clear, and not hidden.
So, its just the users choice after all!

How are you guys configuring this? Through a bat file or run command? I am a little lost. I have a  bunch of dual xeon e5410's but they do not support AES-I and was recommended this would be a good miner to use but I not sure how to change any of the values within the mc2miner.exe

Any will work. just feed it the correct parameters through cd "DIR" and run the miner executable with your specifics.

Also, use a batch file, it is easier to save your config.

Here is the error I am getting. Tried with and without AES-I even though I know my CPU's don't support it. Tried different threads also, works fine on my i7-2600k desktop running win7 64.
