Title: [ANN] ptsweb.beeeeer.org - Protoshares mining sub-pool
Post by: xolokram on November 08, 2013, 10:34:43 pm
Hi,

this is the official announcement for my protoshares mining sub-pool for www.beeeeer.org (http://www.beeeeer.org)
i'm the guy who runs beeeeer.org (obviously)

SERVICE HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN
thanks to all supporters

Some stats/features:

Link:
ptsweb.beeeeer.org (http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org) <-- for your browser / see mining below

Client / Miner:

linux / github: source code here (https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer)
windows binary: v0.5 x32 HOTFIX-1 -> ptsminer_v05a_x32.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/10szy43zzf99xh8/ptsminer_v05a_x32.zip) (32 Bit, fast™!) up to 3 threads
windows binary: v0.5 x64 HOTFIX-1 -> ptsminer_v05a_x64.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/w1aukecc052a52p/ptsminer_v05a_x64.zip) (64 Bit, faster™!!)
windows binary: v0.7 x64 RC1 -> ptsminer_v07b_x64.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/gezxz50ncr90veg/ptsminer_v07b_x64_bundle.zip) (64 Bit, AVX/SSE/SPHLIB experimental, fastererer™!!!) *UPDATED-#3* incl. 'rejections-on-a-block-workaround-by-reconnecting'-fix
(containing GENERIC (INTEL&AMD) , SSE4 and AVX version (INTEL&AMD))

mac: try http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=234.msg3904#msg3904 (thx to spoonman)

build notes: compilation needs boost lib & yasm

some notes:
a) it's not possible to completely erase the rejection rate problem (especially at the current low blocktime)
b) important: i changed the hashrate counter to count only valid iterations of the mining process (which v0.1, 0.2 & 0.3, and propably alpha miner? don't do!!!), thus your displayed hashrate is lower now --- but due to the changes i made for the rejection rate the miner is more effictive --- long story short: please only compare v0.4 against v0.4+ or use the amount of submitted valid shares per hour (or similiar) regarding mining performance
c) i'll look into the occasional random crashs next... give me some time
d) "b" applies for v0.5 and higher too :)

v0.4 or lower
Code: [Select]
usage:
ptsminer -poolip=<_SHUT_DOWN_> -poolport=1337 -pooluser=<your-pts-payout-address> -genproclimit=<threads-to-use>
example:
ptsminer -poolip=<_SHUT_DOWN_> -poolport=1337 -pooluser=PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap -genproclimit=4

v0.5
Code: [Select]
usage:
ptsminer <your-pts-payout-address> <threads-to-use>
example:
ptsminer PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap 4

v0.6
github only

v0.7
Code: [Select]
choose <version> depending on your CPU and mining implementation you want to use

usage: ptsminer_<version>.exe <payout-address> <threads-to-use> [memory-option] [mode]

memory-option: integer value - memory usage
                20 -->    4 MB per thread (not recommended)

just fyi: i'll fix that asap...
ah i just noticed (thx to defragger) that the hashrate counter is not adding the counter when a new block just came in before a result was calculated
thus the hashrate will be lower for v0.2 than v0.1 --- in other words: currently only finished mining iterations are considered in the hashrate calculation.

Title: Re: [ANN] ptsweb.beeeeer.org - Protoshares mining sub-pool!
Post by: xolokram on November 08, 2013, 11:41:46 pm
64bit will take some time, because i'm currently not at my windows machine (and i'll have to adjust the compilation file first)
rough eta ~20 hours

just run multiple instances of the miner if you want to test the pool with more threads (yeah it's a ugly workaround)

The linux version seems to work well, 93%-100% valid. But the hashpermin is low, it started ~8-9hpm, has gone as low as 1.5hpm, and is now hovering consistently around 3.5-3.8 hpm. Linux 64bit, 8CPU, 16GB, 799% CPU, 34% MEM; 8 processes. 

Is that hashpermin about right? I was expecting ~20.

awesome job on the pool!!!

question : my protoshares-qt says "No block Source Available" , is this normal ? can i create address and join the pool ? or should i first wait for it to sync ?

Thanks!

Just to get your wallet synced, not for mining. dima1236 asked about it.

The directions for the pool in the OP work perfectly, if you have any problems, just ask! We need more miners and blocks found. I went from 65% rejected to about 5% with this pool.

xolokram, make a bitcointalk thread and spread the word.  :)

I get a lot less rejected on this pool. We'll see about the payout rate compared to the others.

Just checked and for me it seems that there is less rejects but hashrate is much lower than the other client (does it just hide rejected shares?) - overall the same :)

beeeeer.org has been out there for awhile in the crypto scene.  seems very reliable imo.
i'm adding my nodes now.  cheers! def see a much better quality pool, rejects level is almost non-existance.  must be something in the verification on the pool side...?  awesome. thanks.  again kuddos. mm, late night tea.

i was wondering that too about the rejects possibly hiding, but i think it's something he's done on his pool.

my stats:

there is no much space to hide rejects. i made a lot PTS tonight on beeeeer pool, it's working so much better than pts pool.

@LOW HASHRATE:
the console output is bugged, i missed the counter that is now skipped occasionally due to the rejection rate fix
the actual hash rate is just like before, nothing has changed in the mining code, except that the miner is now updated correctly, when the pool spreads new work to the miners
not like with v0.1, which was just mining on stale blocks

i will fix that with the next release (linux source code update on github in a few minutes now)
if someone is interested, i can show you this in the code @smith88 & feeleep & rando & co.

@64 BIT & xxrforone & lzr1900 & co.:
eta is about 11 hours on my side (i'm currently not on a windows machine) --- i think the other guy from the "nameless pool" (ptspool?) will be faster with compiling the miner today
but miners & pools are compatible (afaik)

you can already compile the miner for 64bit on linux machines, just use the common instructions for linux.
if you have a 64bit machine, a 64bit distribution, then you're compilation suite should be 64bit too and thus compile the 64bit version of the miner!

@LiteMine:
you're probably right - man, i hate this thread managing :) i need a PR manager :D

@donschoe:
like always, thx for the help

are you having connect issues now? uh oh, server having issues? probably sleeping. hope it fixes itself.
hah, nevermind, saw your post xolo :)

update: i see you are awake. so should i update my servers with a new client?  i'll stay awake for a bit more n wait. thanks for your work!

... also i am not seeing the connect issues as I was about 10 minutes ago.  May have been a local network prob

i just checked my logs on the pool, looks like there are no issues on my side currently (except for a restart on the web frontend sometime last night)
you should definitely switch to the new miner, the old one (incl. the original pts client) ist just bad regarding rejection rates (stale blocks)


btw if a payout states "reward = 0" (e.g. here (http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/payout/8607)), that specific block is an orphan unfortunately --- just fyi before someone asks
everyone who is/was mining on my old xpm pool should be aware of the gorgeous payout-info pages

if you are using v0.2 then everything should be fine

as long as you're also using:

Strange, just woke up expecting to see a bunch of PTS, but in the last 9 hours I only made a total of 5.  I am throwing over 200 cores at this pool.

When I look at the website, I see that I am submitting a lot of shares, but I am just not getting anything in payout.  Can someone check this out for me?

Post by: xolokram on November 09, 2013, 04:13:17 pm
no, the payouts are were not going to the big miners
the payouts are were going to no one at all (incl. the pool), because almost all blocks we find are we've found were orphans
i'll have to check the backend, i guess it had something to do with the stuck backend i fixed a few hours ago - i didn't thought it had such an big impact

I've just received my first 3 PTS from this pool, so I'm guessing we are not getting orphans anymore? Here's hoping!

I've still not received anything. Mining with about 50 cores.

Is the alpha miner alot faster than this miner is? I'm not getting anywhere near the 30 khs they are talking about over in the other thread (but i'm also running on linux not windows).

@joesmoe:
read the thread, the pool had some issues this morning (resulting in alot of orphaned blocks)
and there are no payouts atm because the pool hasn't found any new blocks yet -- we don't have 15k miners currently...

the lower hashrate is because of the bug (injected by the rejection fix) in the hashrate counter that was mentioned in this thread earlier

ps. updated 32&64bit windows binary incoming, stay tuned

hi

you'll need a protoshares address / wallet (get the client here  (https://www.dropbox.com/s/4c6mvgyqsajugbo/protoshares.zip)(official site seems to be down?!))

unfortunately, there are no mining/tweaking parameters yet --- i'll look into that when i have the time

Fairly new at this and must be doing something wrong. I downloaded the miner and edited the ptsminer_64bit_EDIT-ME to say   

ptsminer_64bit.exe -poolip=ptsmine.beeeeer.org -poolport=1337 -pooluser=[PgXywCLwGrZJhy2z1TXrJTxJ83VYesaDXp] -genproclimit=[3]

This is my address I added and not sure what the genproclimit is but perhaps its how many cpus being used?  I run this and this is what happens...

********************************************

********************************************           

Then it shuts down.

I also can not get the ProtoShares Wallet to get blocks. It says..

No block source available...

I tried adding

addnode 162.243.67.4 add
addnode 162.243.54.126 add
addnode 37.139.29.236 add
addnode 64.90.183.137 add
addnode 180.183.205.118 add

in the debug console area but still says that no block source and I an 4 days behind.

Any ideas?

Post by: xolokram on November 10, 2013, 07:57:45 am
hi,

first: i decreased the payout barrier from 3 PTS to 1 PTS, so you should receive more smaller payouts now. this will start with the next payout.
that means: your payout address has to reach 1 pts before a payout is initiated

if you've not received any payout yet, go to the payouts list, open the latest payout and check the value of your address in the "next" field, that's your current balance.

I'm aware of some problems: including rej.rate & crashs
although i've not encountered one crash on my side --- which makes it hard to debug
also the rejection rate seems to be around ~10-20% here, but i'll look into this (checking the server now)
and the unusual high rate of orphaned blocks bugs me... i'll check that... most recent blocks seem to be fine... cool!

@xspeed9190:
thank you for helping.

Hi, I'm pretty new to this.

Have been running this for a while using 2 desktops. On the weakest one I'm getting mostly "REJECTED" shares. I suppose this is normal.

Is there a log file or similar that displays total results on the individual desktops?

Hi,

my ptsminer v0.4 "next try hotfix"

Client / Miner:

linux / mac / github: source code here (https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer)
windows binary: ptsminer_v04_x32.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/yooy75kyof15qdr/ptsminer_v04_x32.zip) (32 Bit, supports up to 3 threads due to 32bit limitation)
windows binary: ptsminer_v04_x64.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/27ru4xilwf6lnf4/ptsminer_v04_x64.zip) (64 Bit - more threads & faster!!)

usage:
ptsminer -poolip=ptsmine.beeeeer.org -poolport=1337 -pooluser=[your-payout-address] -genproclimit=[threads-to-use]

website:
ptsweb.beeeeer.org (http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org)

some notes: !!! please read !!!
a) it's not possible to completely erase the rejection rate problem (especially at the current insane blocktime), but the patch/hotfix should reduce the problems!!
b) important: i changed the hashrate counter to count only valid iterations of the mining process (which v0.1, 0.2 & 0.3, and propably alpha miner? don't do!!!), thus your displayed hashrate is lower now --- but due to the changes i made for the rejection rate the miner is more effictive --- long story short: please only compare v0.4 against v0.4+ or the amount of submitted valid shares per hour (or similiar) regarding mining performance
c) i've added some changes to the MacOSX compilation file, can someone test if this works now? (i dont have a suitable test environment) macosx fix incoming
d) i'll look into the occasional random crashs next... give me some time

- xolokram

ps. there will be some downtime of the pool for a few minutes (in a few minutes) as i have to update the backend for the blockchain fork...
pps. i'm sorry about the inconvenience the last patch caused

if you use ptsminer you dont have to update anything (except switching to v0.4 :) what i recommend )

New client is working great!  Compiled the source for my Linux i5 and it's running well too.  Thanks for all your hard work!  Was getting 80% rejects before but with your new miner it's happy days :).  Just got payed out at the 1PTS threshold so all is well for me.

no, everything will be ok (hopefully, i updated the backend)
you dont have to update anything (but i recommend to use miner v0.4, if you've not switched yet)

@Nick:
thanks for the hint, i'll update the payout script & payouts
it looks like he's not mining currently

- xolokram

ps. i'll be back later today --- cross your fingers for the chainfork everyone

go to latest payout http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/payout/11873
hit ctrl+f search for your address until you find it in block "next" or "payout".

payout = your pts are sent to you and your balance is 0.
next = your balance if not paid out.

xolo - I like your pool, its been working good since you released it.

Questions about the fork
When will you switch over? Do miners need to do anything like restart all clients?

What do you think of the 2 hour notice to discuss the fork?

I mined for a few hours last night.  I see my addresses in the payout or next.  I used v3 client.  I have not received a a single PTS.  I'm now using v4 client.  Why am I not getting any payout?

Beeeeer pool already switched to new fork, miner clients are updated, make sure you use v0.4

Looks like the last block to payout was 1200.  I think there's been 23 blocks found since then (blocks lists up to 12122).  Maybe his payout script crashed :).  Do you see your address in any of the blocks listed here? http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/blocks

Thanks for the reply,
I see my address in two payouts pages (12000,11991 maybe also before i didn't check) but the amount in the balance is stuck at the same value but i was mining and sending shares as i am now.

As i am mining with only 1 cpu maybe it's just a not enough decimal places issue?

can at least one of you three four provide any useful information, like a pts address or something?
i mean srsly i can't do or check anything with the last 6 posts!

your submitted shares are bound to the recent block the pool finds.
and every block needs to be confirmed (120 subsequent blocks) by the protoshares network before being paid out to the miners!

@donschoe:
like always - thank you

@solaaire:
the web frontend is what i'm most proud of...... ;)

@gnarl:
backend is already updated.

@hasher:
segmentation fault --- well, there's a problem with the memory allocation/access.
can you check if your mining machine is running out of memory while mining??

@everybody complaining about the payouts:
please try to understand how the payout system works first, then complain!

i'll have to add some user stats obviously.

MY PTS address: Puk4cqPnGynvDGw9Mu1ubce1XPQmEw8B3c

I was mining last night for few hours and submitting shares on v01 and v02 client.  Now I'm using the v04 client.  The other thing I notice is my PTS client is updating very slowly.  It's at block 2104 so far.

Hi xolo,
excuse me if i sound like i was complaining, your work is great i was really thinking that the error is on my side.

My PTS adress is PvSMfZEqYn1ADURv8GoFfw8vTNAPT1c9dg
I was mining with v04 and gettin valid shares, on Blocks 12000,11991,11984 balance is stuck on the same 0.34 amount.
Actually in blocks detail i cannot see any of my shares counted, so maybe i was not mining after all not sure, if you can check the times i have accepted shares on my miner screen dated 2 hours ago, and in last blocks i can see my shares so maybe nothing to worry about.

I will check next payout.

block 2104?
you're probably on the wrong chain --- update your protoshares software (the one you use for your personal wallet/address) !!!!!!

maybe that's the problem for all of you four...

there has been a hard chainfork, forcing old clients to use a broken chain. new payouts are executed on the correct & new chain (with current block height = 12126) !

@gnarl:
thank you

wow, you three guys are quick ;)
also: you should use ptsminer v0.4 for your mining machines!! if you're not already doing this

I upgraded the miner ( to 0.4 ) just after you uploaded it and upgraded the wallet before the fork ( and re-downloaded the forked blockchain )..

Will see what happens next  :)

My client is now updated.  It's at block height 12130 so I must have the right client.  But still no PTS.  I'm using client v04.  I see my address in the payout section in 'next'.  Will I get any payout eventually?

PPLNS you'll get a payment as soon as your balance reaches 1 PTS
its not easy to see your total, but i like the interface so far

yes, but i didnt like the frontend and my hashrate was not that good (used it before any other pool and have never looked back - so i can't really compare)

Payments are processed for each block after 120 confirmations.

This server was never down and never will be.

I know this pool for quite some time now (used to mine XPM there) and it has the best infrastructure, including DDOS protection, payouts are pretty high and the owner (xolo) is some real dedicated guy (after his daughter went to bed).

any more questions? :p

Looking for feedback.  How is this pool guys?

Been very good so far.  Op was on top of the fork before it happened and has been active in the forum helping folks with issues.  So far the pool has been rock solid.  I am getting some crashes on my Linux ptsminer (maybe every couple hours) but that could be my system.

I wrote this crude restart_ptsminer.sh script that runs once a minute on cron to keep it going.

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin
RUNNING=`ps -ef |grep ptsminer|grep -v grep`
if [ "$RUNNING" == "" ]; then

Thanks for this.  If I'm reading this correctly then it looks like I'll never get to 1.0 PTS :(

how much hps you have ?
It shows in my previous post.

That's about what my i3 laptop delivers.
It will probably take you 2 days or so to mine one, but with a bit of patience you will definitely get some :)

Just put the miner in an endless loop.

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
while true; do
    ./ptsminer [-options]
    sleep 10

Yes, time to find a block mining solo: 61.77 days, Turnout: 0.6 PTS/day.

Yup, that works too but my way I don't need a shell open (retrospective lame benefit..I just didn't think of the endless loop at the time).

remember to change your payout address...

Hmmm, I haven't seen a payout in 12 hours.  I did stop for a few hours, but I have been back on for at least 4 hours and haven't seen a payout.  Looking at the last block (12190), I had 327 shares (.49 PTC).  Anyone else having issues?

No trouble at all with payouts.

Xolokram!! looks like you have THE pool for mining PTS, its getting one block after the next. Congratz!

I switched my fleet over last night when the other nameless pool went down. Glad I did. Just having trouble with the v4 of the miner. It crashes so I have reverted to v3 for the time being.

Thanks for all your hard work on the pool and miner.

I have Debian 7 64bit,  i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 8 cores, 32G Ram

I set -genproclimit=4 and hash is 21.4+
Changed to -genproclimit=8, hash increase a little 21.5+
Change again to -genproclimit=6, has the same with proclimit 8.

Does ptsminer software has max limit in genproclimit? or it just the hash display is not accurate? because I can see in my CPU process that it uses the core.

Any info?

Like the user above, I have the same issue. And I have been paid ZERO on all confirmed. not even 0.0001PTS like the user above. Anyone else having the same issue?

Are you sure you're using the correct miner?  connected to the right website (it's very hard to get the right number of e's when typing in the url)?  Have you enabled enough threads?

Have you seen your miner say the thing about shares being accepted?

Pretty sure I am....if I was connecting to the wrong website or have my shares not accepted, you would not be seeing the paste info above as my user ID will not appear on be^5's website.

EDIT : ptsminer_64bit.exe -poolip=ptsmine.beeeeer.org -poolport=1337 -pooluser=PebS8z8DBDPHVBBftk3QreUmfpWWwJ9Fb6 -genproclimit=5

and it is the 64bit version pasted on the first post of this thread.

EDIT 2 : hm, just got my first "payment" and I see the difference in data between all my previous zeros. Perhaps the "accept" on the cmd screen is not really "accept" in terms of doing actual work. (I don't know how to explain it -_-" )Am i making sense? If so, what were all those accepts? O_O

sorry, but what is wrong with some of you? on every user page and on the first post of this thread (which i recommend for everyone) it says:
Quote
your payouts will be executed, when blocks are confirmed & you reach at least 1.0 PTS

and in addition
Quote
check the latest confirmed payout ('next' field) for you current balance

please, before complaining: check your stats against these statesments

- xolokram

ps. sorry, i'm off to work now - i'll be back later today, looking into the problems (the actual problems, not of some users rumbling about "no" payouts) posted here
pps. if you want to show us your user stats, please just post the link, i dont want to see those lists in the thread, it's just painful

Could I trouble someone for the commands to pull down the source and compile on Ubuntu? (Sorry, linux noob) Thanks.  8)

(EDIT: I did try to pull down the master.zip but could not find install instructions in there...)

try this guide http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=798.0
and replace xolominer with ptsminer https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer

I wrote this crude restart_ptsminer.sh script that runs once a minute on cron to keep it going.

Just put the miner in an endless loop.

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
while true; do
    ./ptsminer [-options]
    sleep 10
done


Yup, that works too but my way I don't need a shell open (retrospective lame benefit..I just didn't think of the endless loop at the time).

I'm running them inside a screen session, so no problem with that :)

Confirmations are painfully slow now that the blocks are lasting longer.

Current confirmation time is between 10 and 14 hours due to slow blocktime varying between 5 and 7 minutes :(

Anyone know why I am paid 0.00 PTS on all these early shares?  Also, I have found nearly 1000 shares but only see a fraction of that here.  Address:  PqJVtLE1syCEXRhBsHntpotEj5oMFEfCTA
Did you reach the 1 PTS payout threshold?

try this guide http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=798.0
and replace xolominer with ptsminer https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer

I wrote this crude restart_ptsminer.sh script that runs once a minute on cron to keep it going.

Just put the miner in an endless loop.

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
while true; do
    ./ptsminer [-options]
    sleep 10
done


Yup, that works too but my way I don't need a shell open (retrospective lame benefit..I just didn't think of the endless loop at the time).

I'm running them inside a screen session, so no problem with that :)

Confirmations are painfully slow now that the blocks are lasting longer.

Current confirmation time is between 10 and 14 hours due to slow blocktime varying between 5 and 7 minutes :(

Anyone know why I am paid 0.00 PTS on all these early shares?  Also, I have found nearly 1000 shares but only see a fraction of that here.  Address:  PqJVtLE1syCEXRhBsHntpotEj5oMFEfCTA
Did you reach the 1 PTS payout threshold?

Like the user above, I have the same issue. And I have been paid ZERO on all confirmed. not even 0.0001PTS like the user above. Anyone else having the same issue?
Did you reach the 1 PTS payout threshold?

I also have a night, not a single payment
Did you reach the 1 PTS payout threshold?
no

I had the same problem so I generated a new address and started over after 12 hours.  I guess I lose all that work then. 

It's not that there is something "wrong with us" it's that some of this stuff is not obvious. Some of us are n00bs and are just trying to figure it out.

Thank you xolokram for all the hard work.  But please baby-step some of the confusing stuff down.  For instance how do i actually check what my current account balance is to see if it's near 1.0 PTS?  What does this mean -- it's cryptic to me: "check the latest confirmed payout ('next' field) for you current balance" -- I could next find any "next field".  Sorry if this sounds dumb but I'm not getting it.

sorry, but what is wrong with some of you? on every user page and on the first post of this thread (which i recommend for everyone) it says:
Quote
your payouts will be executed, when blocks are confirmed & you reach at least 1.0 PTS

and in addition
Quote
check the latest confirmed payout ('next' field) for you current balance

please, before complaining: check your stats against these statesments

- xolokram

ps. sorry, i'm off to work now - i'll be back later today, looking into the problems (the actual problems, not of some users rumbling about "no" payouts) posted here
pps. if you want to show us your user stats, please just post the link, i dont want to see those lists in the thread, it's just painful

@svd:
i think i will decrease it slowly, i dont want to have hundreds of payouts on every payout iteration.
so i think 0.5 will be next, probably followed by 0.3 or 0.2 and then 0.1 if necessary.

@btc2084:
ok, i'm sorry. i'm just a little bit angry that no one was able to ask "how do i see my current balance?", but everybody seems to be able to argue about "i have not been paid, i want it naaaooowww"!!

i'm thinking about a way to check for abandoned payout addresses and forcing a payout to this address without the payout treshold after a specific amount of idle time (X days)

ULTIMATE GUIDE TO YOUR CURRENT BALANCE:
1) go to the payout list -> http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/payouts
2) go to the latest payout (that's the one with the highest number, at the top of the page)
3) the next page your see (the payout information):
there are four fields you see which (can) contain (a lot of) addresses and associated values
these four fields are "prev", "add", "payout" and "next" (in this order)
4) go to the "next" field (doing so by searching for the term 'next', it should be at the end of the page)
5) now search for your personal address in this particular field
6) the value you see next to your address within the 'next' field is your current balance for all your submitted shares since your last payout

you can check this yourself: http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/user/Pv6sxYhTivSa6NA3Ak5oaNMS7nepEk29Ax
what does the most recent (the ones on the top of the page) say?
hint: the last part is the most important for you

@favdesu:
this is mostly caused by connection problems on the miner side, i think the bug bytemaster is relating to is something else, the original mining code (which ptsminer is using too) is crashing occasionally...



reminder to myself: change the 'PAID' label on the user stats to 'ADDED TO BALANCE' if just added and add a 'current balance' info for every user...

You need to wait until the blocks are confirmed by the network. This takes 120 blocks, at current block time of 5-7 min this may take 10-14 hours. There is nothing xolo can do about, you cant pay out blocks before they are confirmed.

Basic payout stats:

From the /user page on beeeeer.org, note it does not calculates the results of unconfirmed blocks.

is there anything out how much the pps on this pool is!? just curious ..

The payout system is "proportional". You get the % of shares you submitted. Example: Reward = 35 PTS, 15000 Shares are submitted to solve a block, you submitted 150 (1%) and you will get 1% of the reward = 0.35 PTS.

thank you, donschoe, you're really a great help.

i will decrease the payout treshold to 0.5 PTS now (this will kick in with the next payout) in roughly 2.5 hours

@flower1024:
this would take some time for the implementation & the monitoring is more time intensive. i will think about it, but I have a lot more things on my todo list (including the XPM pool), we'll see.

i know that proportional payout is not flawless, but what exactly do you mean by 'cheaters'? you just mean pool hopping?

pool hoppers ;)
its possile to calculate how much time each share on your pool takes. so you know the average time your pool needs to find a block at any given difficulty.

just mine 41% of this time - then switch to another pool or solo.

as soon as your pool finds a block repeat it again.

i did it with bitcoin a while ago and the effect is that any hopper gets much more and your honest miners suffer from small blocks (and have to do the work on the big blocks alone)

I wasn't question the payout really but it did sounded that way. I do however think some of the people here have the same question and perhaps I *think* I have figured it out how to ask the right way.

12173 2013-11-10 23:52:25 0 / 75323 -> 0 PTS / 35.65 -> PAID

I was "paid" 0 for this because I did no work on this block.

12116 2013-11-10 17:49:03 24 / 63729 -> 0.01343 PTS / 35.65 -> PAID

I was "paid" 0.01343 PTS because I worked 24/63729 on this block. 35.65/63727*24 = 0.01343

Now my question is if it was something that I did no work on, why is it showing up on my log? And going through my ptsminer, I see I have accepted a lot more work than what it actually shows on the website. If it is that case, does the accepted work on the ptsminer really means differently from the way it is calculated on the website? For 3 days of mining, i have less then 1PTS of balance on my account (not payout). Yes, I was aware of the 1PTS min before payout.

I hope my question is a little clearer now. Like someone who posted a couple before me, I am relatively new to this whole mining thing and still trying to figure things out as to what are the things that shows up on my screen really means and to make corrections if I am really doing something wrong.


EDIT : the new info on users looks a lot of user friendly. Thank you ^^ My previous might have become irreverent, if so, just ignore it.

if anyone else is having issues building for osx, here is what I had to do to get it to build.

1)   cd /tmp
2)   xcode-select –install
3)   sudo xcodebuild -license
4)   curl -O https://distfiles.macports.org/MacPorts/MacPorts-2.2.1.tar.bz2
5)   tar xf MacPorts-2.2.1.tar.bz2
6)   cd MacPorts-2.2.1/
7)   ./configure
8)   make
9)   sudo make install
10)   sudo port selfupdate
11)   sudo port install boost [email protected]+no_java openssl miniupnpc   (this takes awhile, almost an hour)
12)   git clone https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer
13)   cd ptsminer/src
14)   make –f makefile.osx

Edit: one of my co-workers needed to download the command line tool for Xcode. So if step 2 doesn't work, that maybe why.

0.5 is creating way too much 'dust' (with ~40 of ~600 paid user per payout every ~20 minutes).
i think a value between 2 and 5 PTS should be fine.

0.5 is creating way too much 'dust' (with ~40 of ~600 paid user per payout every ~20 minutes).
i think a value between 2 and 5 PTS should be fine.

ps. we can discuss this here, please keep calm & think about it before posting "i'll need my payoutz0r; dis sucks!!!!!11! LOL" ;)
I'll respect your decision but it will be a disincentive for people like me who don't run latest/high-end equipment. I was able to get my first payout of 0.5PTS after several hours of mining and I am happy with it. I'd definitely prefer the payout to be 0.5 and not increased, just because with my hardware, I might just have to stop mining soon and want the wasted hashpower to be minimal. A lower payout will give others an incentive to join your pool as opposed to other pools as well. Just my two cents.

Once you have time to do more than fiddle with parameters you should consider just adding a minimum time between payouts to the payout script.

I've only received like 20 PTS in 24 hours with 20 quod core cpu's running at it?

I wonder how many hpm you average quad core cpu gives?

my fx8320- 17-20hpm -8core
i3-mobile(2.5Ghz)-7-9hpm -4core

If some one gets stats post it here please too

Hey xolo,

I don't want to step on any toes, but does this seem normal?

http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/user/PvNDWHTzEke8Hhdyds52qgZEZ82RpUbUdW

They started out small and now they are raking in 10 PTS every block...

I don't mean to be a snitch....

woah when iam seeing my share rate with 10 x 2 cpu then this must like 3000 x 2cpu devices.. strange ...

True, they are taking about 12.5PTS per block, they are also finding a lot of blocks for us. So don't complain, it is in our favor to get most of the blocks on the network.

I'm also mining with low end hardware and just got my first 0.5 PTS.  I'd also prefer at least 0.5 payout.

Nice work, now everything works great :D
unfortunately not. the payout script stopped at payout #12351, i'll look into this issue asap.
dont panic, the blocks & payouts are safe, they are just not executed yet.


/edit:
ok, i know why it stopped, everything will be alright, i'll fix it. (until the next bug appears!)  :)
i changed the payout treshold back to 1.0 PTS

Hello!

I'm all new to this and was wondering from the stats i've gathered i see:


Last 100 payments:
Block   Date      Total   Add   Diff      Balance
12422   12.11. 0:41   0.92   +0.0104   0.00012097   0.9239
12421   12.11. 0:38   0.91   +0.009   0.00012097   0.9136
12419   12.11. 0:32   0.9   +0.0155   0.00012097   0.9046
12418   12.11. 0:27   0.88   +0.0182   0.00012097   0.8891
12417   12.11. 0:26   0.86   +0.0162   0.00012097   0.8709
12414   12.11. 0:03   0.85   +0.0263   0.00012097   0.8547
12413   12.11. 0:01   0.82   +0.0207   0.00012097   0.8284

Is the balance the ammount of protoshares i've mined so far? What are the numbers on the far right side?
Im mining away on 2 computers but my vallet doesn't seem to get any profit. (Started around 24 hours ago now.) How long does it usually take for the gathered ammount ot be transfered to the vallet?

Thanks in advance!

your personal payouts are executed, when you reach 1.0 pts (that's the value aka balance on the right side of Sy's stats)

@Sy:
can you add an information about the payout threshold to your stats?
(altough it's not 100% clear what exact value we'll use atm)

AHHHH good (or actually not so good for you  ;D)

the other 'lists' (payout & block) have a 's' added to the address, thus your miner is connecting with this address
PpVDcKeQ8N9n7yszmns3PuSW3t6AbwY843s

see http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/user/PpVDcKeQ8N9n7yszmns3PuSW3t6AbwY843s
PpVDcKeQ8N9n7yszmns3PuSW3t6AbwY843s is not a valid PTS address
i'm able to change that address (remove the 's' to fix the payout to this address), give me some time, i'm currently at work
but please change your miner configuration & reconnect to the server first

/edit: i just digged through the whole log history...

No more treshold, if add -> address is set and no next -> address a payout happened and i get payout -> address and mark it as paid.

So i don't have to change anything no matter what you set :)

I had to do a apt-get install cmake* and then cmake from the root fc-phenoex directory.  It seems to use the CMakeLists.txt file.  Then you need to do a cmake install_<something>. Sorry, not on the machine I built it on right now.

Xolokram,

If it wasn't someone with your reputation -- which not all user's know of -- the whole miner might seem like a big scam.  But we know you aren't in that business, at least most of us do.

I've been mining pts for I think two+ days and still nothing shows up in the wallet.

Update:  I upgraded to 2.0 Protoshares and all the pts balance showed up properly!  Sorry for the hassle, esp. when the issue had nothing to do with the pool.  It was the wallet problem the whole time.

@svd:
i think i will decrease it slowly, i dont want to have hundreds of payouts on every payout iteration.
so i think 0.5 will be next, probably followed by 0.3 or 0.2 and then 0.1 if necessary.

@btc2084:
ok, i'm sorry. i'm just a little bit angry that no one was able to ask "how do i see my current balance?", but everybody seems to be able to argue about "i have not been paid, i want it naaaooowww"!!

i'm thinking about a way to check for abandoned payout addresses and forcing a payout to this address without the payout treshold after a specific amount of idle time (X days)

ULTIMATE GUIDE TO YOUR CURRENT BALANCE:
1) go to the payout list -> http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/payouts
2) go to the latest payout (that's the one with the highest number, at the top of the page)
3) the next page your see (the payout information):
there are four fields you see which (can) contain (a lot of) addresses and associated values
these four fields are "prev", "add", "payout" and "next" (in this order)
4) go to the "next" field (doing so by searching for the term 'next', it should be at the end of the page)
5) now search for your personal address in this particular field
6) the value you see next to your address within the 'next' field is your current balance for all your submitted shares since your last payout

windows binary: v0.5 x64 -> ptsminer_v05_x64.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/rdq6bqsy7sg6vo4/ptsminer_v05_x64.zip) (64 Bit, experimental, faster™!!!!)

parameters are different now, check the usage example below


Code: [Select]

notes:
boost library required for compilation!

I can't test on OSX. Maybe someone can say if the compilation works on OSX?

known issues:
occasionally crashs when the connection is lost, put it in a loop to restart-on-fail!
32bit seems to suffer from a higher rejection rate, i'll look into this problem asap

it's all based on randomness and pure luck.

follow this:
http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=798.0

the guide is written for a primecoin miner, but it should work too.

the "Install xolominer dependencies" part is the most important for your situation right now
(you can dismiss some of the packages like libgmp3-dev if you dont want to install all of them)

hey, the new build (v0.5) looks quite faster but when using alongside cgminer (scrypt) it drops the hashrate 10-20%
I understand it's not necessarily a problem, just letting you know, the coyote miner does the same so I was using your client

I'm losing maybe 2-3% running 2 threads but when I was running 3 it was in the 10-20% range (on a quad core). I've had the same experience with all the pts miners though.

I have also had a few crashes since .5  whereas I hadn't had any crashes in prior versions. Otherwise it seems to be doing well.

it's experimental (especially the current network code). i guess i can fix the issue with other processes by lowering the priority of the threads, i'll look into the code later today.

@andhar

Difficulty rose from 0.00012097 to 0.00051405 somewhere in between blocks 16116 and  16143, so about 12 hours ago. I think this might explain the delay in confirmations as it takes 120 blocks to confirm, and if this increase got it to the intended block interval of 5 minutes that would mean it now takes 10 hours to confirm.

note; I'm just guessing.


Edit;  I just checked my user page and it appears all blocks older than about 5 hours have been confirmed, this might mean another increase in difficulty in a week.

HI,

Could you please readd the -url and -port option for version 0.5 ? I need it to go thru a proxy first and I insert the address there...

@BartV&GurungBoi&andhar:
stats on the web frontend are cached, and the caching algorithm is pretty simple (read: stupid) thus the user stats are not up-to-date all the time. i hope your personal stats are alright again?!

@Vzierx:
i just checked your account on beeeeer.org, but then i realised there are no real accounts on beeeeer.org, just payout addresses! mh, what should i do now? i guess you already read the first post of this thread, especially the part about the payout barrier?

@hiddenvalleyranch:
it's already planned.

@voffka05:
 ;D

@Snard:
this is a share that has been submitted and confirmed

@raynaldo:
i hope someone with enough computing power / test environments can help. which is better: windows or linux version of ptsminer?

@PMB:
hmpf, i'll put it on the todo list.....

@v0.5:
i found out that the mining is not so efficient on very high end hardware - using 32-64 threads, i'll try to improve this asap.

I think its has to do when network connection is lost or pool is restarted... and yes its kinda pain, i got to keep monitoring my 10 machines to see if they are working or not every few hours =\

Hope that gets sorted out soon

Yeah and the part that is frustrating is that it does not just crash the script, it puts up a fricken dialog box in Windows saying the app crashed that you have to click. Makes it hard to restart the process automatically. At this point I'm thinking about splitting the threads between two pools. It sucks PTS has not evolved enough to have backup pools in a common client yet. ::)

Is the speed difference between v04 and v05 great? I'm thinking of leaving the v04 mining through the nigh on my 20 VPS cores, so it won't crash after a couple of hours

Create the following 32bit DWORD and set it to 1:

 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\DontShowUI

That will stop the dialog and allow your loop'd batch file to work.

Brilliant, thank you sir!

Easiest way to do it. Create a file with notepad:

---
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting]
"DontShowUI"=dword:00000001
---

Save as anything.reg (make sure you change the default save from .txt) and then double click on it.

Correct. Again, the only tricky part is making sure it's saved as a filename.reg not a filename.reg.txt.

to get better performance with version 5 client run multiple instances

for example with a dual Xeon E5-2690 I get about 380 Col/min with 32 threads
but running two instances of ptsminer_64bits with 16 threads each yields 220 col/min

I also set the affinity of each process ( using procexp) so each instance runs from a single cpu, seems to add about 10+/- col/min

so 440 col/min vs 380

Hi

new ptsminer v0.5 EXPERIMENTAL/BEEEEER EDITION HOTFIX-1
for ptsweb.beeeeer.org (http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org)

linux / github: source code here (https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer)
windows binary: v0.5 x32 HOTFIX-1 -> ptsminer_v05a_x32.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/10szy43zzf99xh8/ptsminer_v05a_x32.zip) (32 Bit, experimental, faster™!!!!) up to 3 threads
windows binary: v0.5 x64 HOTFIX-1 -> ptsminer_v05a_x64.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/w1aukecc052a52p/ptsminer_v05a_x64.zip) (64 Bit, experimental, faster™!!!!)

parameters are different now, check the usage example below


Code: [Select]
usage:
ptsminer <your-pts-payout-address> <threads-to-use>
example:
ptsminer PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap 4


notes:
boost library required for compilation!

problems with compilation? adapt some of the things from --> HERE (http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=798.0) (thanks to donschoe, don't forget to DONATE!!)

I can't test on OSX. Maybe someone can say if the compilation works on OSX?

known issues:
miners with >24 threads should consider to use two instances with less threads instead of one instance for all threads
a high thread count seems to cause rejections, i'll look into this issue asap

Thank you xolo!!
I was lucky and found your commit before you posted it here. I have found that i have much less rejected shares if i use more threads. When i use 32threads - get about 30% rejected shares and for 64threads i get only about 8% rejected shares. I'll try even more threads.

i'll work on a patch for the server next
i think i'll have to increase the share target to reduce the workload for the server (aka increase the stability)
this will decrease your shares/min (just fyi), but col/min will stay the same

@gabaic:
please dont quote the whole post, it polutes the thread somehow (can you edit this?)
it's a new version with a fix for the network code, preventing crashs if the connection is lost

@LordHelma/Riverhead:
nice to hear

@support/help/compilation issues:
speaking about poluting the thread: this is not a chat!
i think we have to create a seperate "tech support" thread

Quick few questions and wondering if anyone can answer this:

PPS rate?
Fee?  2.5% - Is this still correct?
Is it really 501% faster?  Compared to ypool?
I cant work out HPM so how do I know its faster?

server workload is quite high currently, i'm working on a fix, keep calm

@NineLives:
there are not hps/hpm in v0.5 (which i recommend)
and no pts
srsly, please read at least the first post in this thread...

I understand dude but then how are we comparing.  You will have to excuse my knowledge but PPS info and how do I measure with other pools to commit all my current 259hpm with you?  What have I got to measure with.

I'm sorry my questions may sound annoying but I need to know.

Thanks allot.

@gabainc:
do me a favor and go back to ypool, they'll need you more than i do, kthxbye.

@down/rejects:
server workload was very high with 30k+ miners
told you (or at least i told the guys in the irc, but they demanded a higher sharetarget) :)
i decreased the sharetarget to reduce the workload!

@prophetx:
120 x <blocktime>
blocktime should be 5 minutes
but it's way less currently, check the irc channel, they will help you with up-to-date information, lots of clever people there (&trolls)

I found the new miner very resource intensive for my low-end G620 cpu, i guess this is intended for higher collision rate.

Post by: xolokram on November 15, 2013, 05:20:59 pm
i think i've found out why there are so many rejections on high amounts of threads, it's actually just stupid to send the work as share in the first place --- so the rejection is correct, but sending it to the server is unnecessary.

@GurungBoi:
i'm not limiting them, i just use a different share target, which reduces the shares/min

@wirel1:
i fixed a memory leak, i think this was causing some of the trouble we had last night.
net miner is still using normal priority & 512 mb per thread, if you want to change the priority, you'll have to do it manually.

@all:
speaking of problems, here's what i found out about the payout system:

before going berserk: read the following, try to understand it, read it again (!), and if you have something useful to say write it here (or PM me)

ok, so the server workload was really heavy the last hours, which broke the execution of the payout script, while the normal behavior would be
every X seconds do {
  check last payout & the following block (confirmed? orphan? etc. pp)
  calculate the payout & next value for all users
  send payout info to protoshares backend & execute payout
  save all information
}

due to the workload and connection problems last night the communication to the backend had some huge delays, which led to parallel executions of the payout script on the same block

long story short: payouts on some blocks had been executed multiple times

ok, that's bad. bad it's not very bad. why?
because the users that had the most advantage (high values in the payouts) kept mining at the pool, which means i can use the unconfirmed balance of these users to correct their balance.

so what's the problem?
slow miners in the broken payouts don't have enough mined yet (in the unconfirmed block), so they are able to run away with the bounty. let's see what the unconfirmed blocks will bring and i'll try to correct the remaining parts with the fees I've earned, because it was my mistake ... somehow

so why do you tell all this?
because honesty is important! i could have just said nothing (since no of the affected miners didn't noticed something strangely..........). but without honesty i could just go on and introduce "dynamic fees" or have a "hardware failure", or use "software" without ...............  <-- ok, sorry, enough, nvm :)

ok, so give of some numbers?
yes, here we go:

the blocks that have been executed multiple times:
16547: 17x  >:(
16794: 3x
16805: 2x
16806: 2x
16859: 2x
16878: 2x
16891: 2x
16903: 18x >:(
17035: 2x
17133: 10x  >:(

I've added the difference (negative balance) for the miners who had multiple payouts to the following payout:
http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/payout/17136
check the "diff" field
yes, some numbers there are quite high, but those miners are big miners with many mining machines, this means all unconfirmed blocks can pay for the negative balance and we'll not have a problem with these high values. it's the smaller values that are causing me some a headache.

i used all of my free time today to check/fix that sh--
although there's enough to do on the pool & miner side.

- xolokram

ps. the "leftover" value in the payouts is broken due to this bug, i'll fix that later manually

Post by: timegrinder on November 15, 2013, 09:57:48 pm
When you get a collision it does some work to check if it's a valid collision and then sends the data to the server as a potential share.

Unfortunately if the server goes down and you're working on a block it will keep working, keep finding collisions and then not send them anywhere.

So all in all what you've just seen there is lost potential shares in the pool block(s)

Can you tell the rest off us how to if its ok. I could allocate up to 1.5gb to each of my 8 threads... if that would make a 50% difference say,  I would gladly do so. Or at least, may you please release a 1024 mb/thread option.

Personally i hover somewhere around 150c/m, how long would i expect to wait for my first PTS?
Weeks, months?

No worries, i just got my first payout of 1.000xx something PTS. Have added a few  more machines i've got laying around and should soon reach 400c/m...
If only my Dual-CPU Quad-core 3GHz Xeon server didn't sound like a jet plane I'd add that as well...

the problem is that there's no accurate way to detect the efficacy of changes to your hashrate unless you wait for several payouts - and even then, you only get a snapshot of your changes from back then.

if you're more than a few percentage points of the pool, this goes faster and is more accurate short term, but there aren't many in that boat.

Lack of stats doesn't do well for trust of the pool operator :\  I would really prefer if he could fix the stats page ASAP

Coyote miner is another good alternative. http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=636.0 (http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=636.0)

@pool web frontend down:
sorry, my bad! :o
srsly, it was pure stupidity

@bad server performance / rej rate / submission delay:
i'll have to switch to a different server, the current one is not good enough (especially not for 10k, 20k or even 30k miners)
this shouldn't bother you too much, you'll likely not notice anything, except that it'll decrease the rejection rate... hopefully!!
i wasnt really able to do anything for the pool today (thus the long downtime of the web front end), and now it's really late here <-- this is my bad excuse for:
but i should be able to switch the server machine by tomorrow evening

@Riverhead:
thanks for helping

@automake:
yes, please, modify/advance/improve my miner.

Alternative statistics - http://54.219.131.208/pts/<your pool pts address> :)
- daily total
- hourly production

Note - this parses the ptsweb server's output - so if ptsweb is down, this is also down. This is also the cause of the latency.

Guys, you should really make use of the Amazon cloud (AWS) !!

Use the c3.4xlarge instances for low rejection rates (c3.8xlarge: 25% rejection, c3.4xlarge: 5-8% rejection) bundled with Ubuntu 13.10.
To access the instances use, e.g., WinSCP and Putty.
Upload the soucre code of the 0.5a miner, and execute the following commands, done.

sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev unzip mc
unzip ptspool-master.zip
cd ptspool-master/src
make -f makefile.unix
./ptsminer PaPbuU9pVGm6rGnMDe8a8MzWAxymf3RXUW 16

(Of course, I'd like to see my wallet adress here. lol)

Oh, btw, use the Amazon (autcion based) spot instances which you get at approx. 0.5USD right now (see AWS-Irland, and AWS-Singapore for example).

Happy mining.

It's not profitable at this point to do the AWS thing, even with the best spot prices. As far as the free tier goes, it provides marginal computing power and really just exists so people can learn how to setup and run EC2 instances for free. In that respect it could be really useful to you if you're interested in being able to do this sort of thing in the future without waiting for someone to post a guide. Amazon has page full of tutorials to show you how it all works as well if you don't want to just dive in head first without looking. http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/spot-tutorials/

What did you change? Just switched back to your pool with ~60 cores. More will follow.
Can you give me some info about using your miner on linux?

ok, server transfer done. everything -should- be ok now.

i increased the share target, so slow miners will get some sh/m too.

i decreased the payout barrier to 0.33 (should be low enough now)

i'm thinking about using this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1976.msg50002#msg50002)

sneak preview of v0.6 is available at github (for mac&linux, windows will have to wait for a binary)
including sphlib support (more col/min) & high-rejection rate fix (atm it's more of a workaround) for machines with lots of threads

Hey @xolokram, please add Intel AVX/SSE4 SHA512: https://github.com/moinakg/pcompress/tree/master/crypto/sha2
It's 30% faster than sphlib. + you should add command line argument to toggle sse4/avx, because cpuid on Amazon AWS reports about AVX, but actually Xen hypervisor doesn't support it.

Also could you please add total unconfirmed balance to the user stats page?

Hi All,

Im waiting for the protoshare-qt connect to the ps network to take my wallet up to date since 30 hours.
I can not start to joint to mine until it my wallet is not success.
I added all ip-s what I found on the forum.

Anyone can add the ip wha I should add my protoshare qt?????????

If you're pool mining (vs solo mining with the client) you don't need the protoshares-qt to be sync'd.  Just need the address to pass to the pool.  Your payouts will show up when the client finally gets a node or two and can sync.

WTH? Am I banned or something?
http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/user/Pu9jKnnjZvNZ52WrVLda84SLMb1grvTBR5

My shares don't appear anymore, despite the fact I've added several workers (maybe 10-15) for few hours, just to test. And my 0.3 pts were paid despite not reaching the 1 pts threashold.
Do you seriously think I'm operating a botnet or something?! With 15 computers?!
Please unban me!

Thanks.

Read back a few posts.  The payment threshold was lowered to 0.33 due to the diff change.  Your link looks just fine.  The payment rule at the top hasn't been updated so I can understand why it might seem odd if you weren't following this thread.

OK, sorry about this :) those guys really need a graphical interface or something better than their 70's text interface.
The user page still states "personal payouts are executed, when you reach at least 1.0 pts" btw.

@xolokram: I have a problem with the v0.5. I have to mine behind firewall therefore I have to route the traffic with haProxy package. :( :(
With 0.5 I can not do it because of wired options.

Can you send me an option for me?

0.4 is works but I don't want to loose the updated 0.5 version.

yep, short downtime, but should be ok now, sorry.

and sorry for the rare updates currently, i'm working on a new version for the miner mostly
i'm currently testing sphlib & the avx/sse support glitchboy mentioned (thanks for that)
also i added the memory option (but it looks like 512mb is still the best one (at least for me), but it's always good to have an option)

looks like everything is ok here in the thread, nothing to answer ... wth? ;D

Thanks for your great work.
Will you upload the new version to your git repo? I would love to test it.
The 256MB option is usefull for servers with a lot of cores but less RAM (i have a 24 core with only 8 GB).

xolo I am having an issue receiving payouts. I am mining PTS using your 0.5Windows miner and the linux miner. I had no problems with your XPM pool, and I have checked my payout address is correct. My local wallet says it is synched. Since yesterday I should have had 3 payouts according to the users page and the payouts page yet my wallet is showing 0.0PTS still.

Edit, Nevermind I checked the block numbers and my wallet was out of sync. After a close and reopen I got it sorted out.

/edit1:
 ;)

/edit2: i will just re-use this post

new ptsminer v0.7 EXPERIMENTAL/TOO LATE?/BEEEEER EDITION *UPDATED-#3*
for ptsweb.beeeeer.org (http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org) & #beeeeer.org @ Freenode

linux / github: source code here (https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer)
windows binary: v0.7 x64 RC1 -> ptsminer_v07b_x64.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/gezxz50ncr90veg/ptsminer_v07b_x64_bundle.zip) (64 Bit, experimental, fastererer™!!!!!!) *updated-#3* incl. 'rejections-on-a-block-workaround-by-reconnecting'-fix
(containing GENERIC (INTEL&AMD) , SSE4 and AVX version (INTEL&AMD))

new optional parameter, check the usage example below


Code: [Select]
choose <version> depending on your CPU and mining implementation you want to use

usage: ptsminer_<version>.exe <payout-address> <threads-to-use> [memory-option] [mode]

memory-option: integer value - memory usage
                20 -->    4 MB per thread (not recommended)
                21 -->    8 MB per thread (not recommended)
                22 -->   16 MB per thread (not recommended)
                23 -->   32 MB per thread (not recommended)
                24 -->   64 MB per thread (not recommended)
                25 -->  128 MB per thread
                26 -->  256 MB per thread
                27 -->  512 MB per thread (default)
                28 --> 1024 MB per thread
                29 --> 2048 MB per thread
                30 --> 4096 MB per thread

mode: string - mining implementation
                avx --> use AVX (ptsminer_avx.exe)
                sse4 --> use SSE4 (ptsminer_avx_*.exe & ptsminer_sse4.exe)
                sph --> use SPHLIB (ptsminer_avx_*.exe, ptsminer_sse4.exe, ptsminer_amd.exe & ptsminer_intel.exe)


examples:
ptsminer_avx.exe PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap 4
using AVX on 4 threads and 512 MByte RAM per thread (default)

ptsminer_sse4.exe PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap 8 28
using SSE4 on 8 threads and 1024 MByte RAM per thread

ptsminer_intel.exe PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap 2 25 sph
using SPHLIB on 2 threads and 128 MByte RAM per thread

ptsminer_avx.exe PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap 12 24 sph
using SPHLIB on 12 threads and 64 MByte RAM per thread


build notes:

boost library & YASM required for compilation!

currently the mode parameter has to be set manually on linux machines (fix will come later), no autodetection atm

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install yasm
i expect some problems with the compilation as i've not tested the miner on every linux / mingw distrubution out there... be patient, dont panic

compiler warnings on the SPHLIB files are alright (incl. sph_sha2.c, sph_sha2big.c & md_helper.c)

and next difficulty coming in fast...

problems with compilation? adapt some of the things from --> HERE (http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=798.0) (thanks to donschoe, don't forget to DONATE!!)

I can't test on OSX. Maybe someone can say if the compilation works on OSX??

KNOWN ISSUES:
1) on Amazon EC2 instances AVX is permitted (?!?) --> the miner crashs <-- SSE version is working fine, you'll have to set SSE4 mode manually
2) OSX compilation errors due to byteswap & *i-forgot-urghs* thread priority(?)

todo:

- xolokram

ps. cmake file is not up-to-date, i will fix that asap
pps. using 32 bit linux distribution could be problematic... will look into that later
note --- quick dirty 32 bit linux distribution workaround: replace "elf64" in makefile.unix by "elf"

Problems with 0.7 miner (github version 38047d66731), on Windows 7 64bit, AMD FX8350 CPU, CPM is about 30% lower than version 0.6.

Amazon EC2 compiles source okay (32 core instance), but crashes with illegal instruction + core dumps - probably due to new instructions being used?

I'm noticing an increase from ~80 c/m to ~100 c/m on my 4 core Xeon E31220. I'm also experiencing the crashing problem on my i7 920. I'm wondering if it's cause it doesn't have AVX, but does have SSE4 and it's trying to default to AVX?

KNOWN ISSUES:
1) on some machines the windows binary crashs right after the first share submission (see next posts), looking into that issue

I am having the same issue across most of my hardware, I know it's already known, but if you need any assistance with testing, drop me a line and I will be happy to help.  I can test on workstations with i7's, i5's, C2Qs, and Xeon servers with dual 51xx, E54xx, X53xx, X55xx, and X56xx series procs. (most running windows 64bit OS's) Just shy of 200 cores total.

Figure it's the least i can contribute.  :)

I have 0.7 mining fine on a Xbuntu i5 laptop. Just using the addy and 4 as parameters.

Went from ~51 c/m to ~78 c/m.  Not sure if those stats are comparable between versions.

Using the sphlib on my FX-8350 using 7 cores (1 saved for cgminer) I went from ~140 to ~180 c/m.  So far stable but only at 10 valid 0 reject.

Just my feedback on the v0.7. I compiled myself in ubuntu 13.10, it seems to run much slower on i7-4770k compared to v0.6 (about 1.1sh/m slower). But v0.7 runs faster on my i7-2600k. So weird.

uff wow, didnt expect that much feedback over the night :)

"Illegal instruction" is caused by AVX while being permitted (i guess it's a vps you're using?), SSE4 could work, but needs some adjustment on the code, because it will auto-prefer the AVX code.

on machines with SSE4, but no AVX, it -should- choose the SSE4 code. but it looks like that this detection fails somehow on some machines... *urghs*

and don't us the "sh/min" (shares/min) measure for comparison, it's highly depending on what the server is accepting at the moment, and this is fluctuating (col/min is a better measure)



thanks for all the (positive & negative) feedback

i should add a manual option to choose from sphlib, avx or sse4

0.7 AVX version works fine on 3570K & 4670K CPU's, but doesn't work on 3570 (without "K")
(http://sigma.berdyansk.net/avx3570k.png)

my i5 3570 (without "K" :D) works fine for me with avx/sse. running win7 64b

Managed to compile it under FreeBSD 9.2 x64.
Just had to change '#include <endian.h>' to '#include <machine/endian.h>' and comment out this low-priority stuff.
Mining @167c/m using an i7 2600k, 7 threads, 2048MB/thread. Pretty acceptable I guess.

Just my feedback on the v0.7. I compiled myself in ubuntu 13.10, it seems to run much slower on i7-4770k compared to v0.6 (about 1.1sh/m slower). But v0.7 runs faster on my i7-2600k. So weird.

Have exactly the same issue. My I7-4770 dropped from 85 c/m to 70 c/m running on 2 cores.

from v0.6 to v0.7? OS? VM or native?
does it state "using sphlib" or "using AVX/SSE" at the beginning of the miner?

i have a wild guess that the changes to the makefile (esp. -march=native) are not suitable for all distros/systems/configs

ps. @all: don't compare sh/m, use col/m

Xolokram my own pc running native ubuntu 13.10 running v0.6 get about 190c/m & 3.9sh/m. After running v0.7, its about 160+c/m & 2.8sh/m. At the beginning of the miner it says "using avx/sse". It's quite a big difference.

Just to put things in perspective my other pc i7-2600k also running native ubuntu13.10 in v0.6 about 160c/m, in v0.7 about 190c/m. Much improvement but sh/m drops.

I'm not absolutely sure, but I guess to remember that this error message was displayed before I installed 'yasm'. Did you install 'yasm' before compilation?

Yasm is a new dependency for the 0.7 miner.

I checked the ptsminer compilation on a CentOS 6.3 VM now. Following is the way it works...

Use the makefile.unix.no-chrono - fire up your favourite editor and change line 27 as follows:

Old:
   -l boost_thread$(BOOST_LIB_SUFFIX)

New:
   -l boost_thread-mt$(BOOST_LIB_SUFFIX)

Now compile using
make -f makefile.unix.no-chrono clean
make -f makefile.unix.no-chrono

Voilà! You should get a brand new ptsminer on CentOS.  ;-)

8GB ram

running v0.5 works fine (no memory option :( )

running v0.7 starts, i get a message saying no AVX, and then it switches to SPHLIB, then after receiving work it crashes.

not sure why its trying to failover to SPHLIB first instead of SSE4

DigitalOcean and HP Cloud both have Debian 13, however, WarriorVPS has only Ubuntu. Seeing as Debian and Ubuntu go, practically hand in hand, I see no issue. Anyone wanna sound off?

nearly 6 hours without block found!

Is there anything wrong?

Maybe I will move to another pool since I have no patience now.

Besides, I test v0.7 on Suse 11. It proves to be very useful.
And I have more memory to use, 8G per core. Can you offer a optimizaiton for this situation?

The 0.6 version of yasm is too old.
Then I test yasm v1.2. It's OK.
So, you can add this issue to help others.

got that. Really big.
But I thought maybe the decrease of pool's workers cause the pool, as a whole, become weak.
So we have to wait long time for a block.

MarcusDe,

Since this is the error:
    error: ‘be64toh’ was not declared in this scope
you need to make sure be64toh() is defined.

You can run "grep -r be64toh /usr/include/" to see what header file defines be64toh and add it to the top of sha512.c or sha612.h.

For example, my machine shows "/usr/include/endian.h", so I would add
   #include <endian.h>
to the top of sha512.c.

The solution/problem could be a little different, but missing the correct include is one of the more common reasons for this error.

@erko

Thanks for help!

Well, there is no endian.h and be64toh in (recursive saerch)
/usr/include
/usr/local/include
or anywhere else ;-/

OS is old suse enterprise, without support.
Any more ideas?

edit:
Heh, I found those defines in system which have them, I will try to put them manually in ptsminer files.
edit2:
Helped myself and others with problem like this:
in sha512.c added:
#include <byteswap.h>
#define be64toh(x) __bswap_64 (x)

Works, on defaults c/m moved from 190 to 200.

@xolokram
Hey xolo, that new miner is quite fast! Just one small problem: After 1 hour of mining, the miner will "forget" to hand in the collisions it finds. It still finds them, but it never gives them to your server....

So since it never hands them in, it lost shares right  :'(
That sucks, because there was a lot of collisions last night for me.

JHProtoMiner is also usually unable to connect or, when it can, it doesn't detect any collisions on beeeeer.  It does work on ypool and gets about 40-50 more c/m but I'd rather be mining on beeeer if I can.

you should at least check your miner('s connection) and probably restart it

which OS and which miner do you use?

I am also getting some crashing with v0.7

win7 64bit
q9550 (supposed to have sse4.1, but not being reported by cpuz)
8GB ram

running v0.5 works fine (no memory option :( )

running v0.7 starts, i get a message saying no AVX, and then it switches to SPHLIB, then after receiving work it crashes.

not sure why its trying to failover to SPHLIB first instead of SSE4

bringing this back up, did you fix the SSE4 issue for the windows miner yet?

also im seeing a 29% reject rate on one of my miners. what can cause that?

Hmm, the miner is showing over 1200 submitted shares but my user stats page is only showing around 300 of them. Is the stats page just slow to update? I've also noticed a huge dip in performance for seemingly no reason. Last night it was doing 125 c/m and 2.6 sh/m. Woke up this morning to check on it and its at 57 c/m and 0.9 sh/m.

EDIT: I just closed the miner and restarted it. Now its running at 145 c/m and 3.4 sh/m. Does it get slower and slower over time?

@gsrcrxsi / high rejection rate:
on v0.7: i'm currently experiencing this on my own, it looks like the rejects are coming in "chunks" with 5-6 rejects in a row, then everything is fine again.
is this was you're seeing too?

i don't have a hint right now what's the cause, i'll have to dig deeper through the server logs / mining code  >:(

/edit: and i just got home, i'll check the code now.

@cjrhoades / afr33sl4ve:
this is getting a little confusing, so you're using v0.5 and v0.7 ? both with the same problem.
and both of you encounter the "collision found" but -no- "submitted share -> <whatever>" line in the miner output?

if this happens and you dont see enough shares in the last blocks (user stats), then it looks like the submission is not reaching the server, thus you don't get an answer from the server about your submitted share. the miner itself counts every share that has been submitted regardless of the/an answer from the server about that submission.

also please be aware, that your most recent shares are currently not shown in the user stats, as these are bound to found blocks, and the last found blocks is 2.5 hours old

No, no. I'm getting rejections and collisions, however, they're all being submitted. I'm not having the no submissions issue.

I'm seeing, though, lower hashrates as time goes on, with both 0.5a and 0.7a.

this can happen if your miner loses the connection to the server due to a bug in the col/min counter (v0.7)
i'll commit a fix in a few minutes

v0.5 is strange, as this version doesnt have the mentioned bug. maybe your cpu is becomming hot and throttles down? can you check that please.

No. The shares are being submitted fine. Here's my concern.

After a fresh start:
(http://puu.sh/5r3gS)

After ~40 minutes:
(http://puu.sh/5r5tL.png)

After ~9 hours:
(http://puu.sh/5r2Zj)

Notice the big dip in performance over time? The longer the miner runs, the slower it gets. Closing and restarting it brings it back up to maximum speed.


also please be aware, that your most recent shares are currently not shown in the user stats, as these are bound to found blocks, and the last found blocks is 2.5 hours old

- xolokram

Ok, here's what I know. I've put in 1400-1500 shares so far. All the blocks shown in the user stats add up to ~900 shares. If it hasn't been updated for 2.5 hours, then during that time I would have had to put in ~550 shares and been doing around 3.6 sh/m to have that many missing. But I've been doing far less than that. So either its taking longer than that to update or some shares aren't being counted. Or my math is wrong in which case please ignore this. What I do know is that every time a collision is found I see "[MASTER] submitted share -> SHARE" so I know they're getting to you.

Post by: xolokram on November 23, 2013, 08:21:23 pm
so the "decreasing" performance is was just a stupid bug in the counter or to be more precise, like i mentioned before, the col/min & sh/min counter was not reset properly on a connection loss
i fixed that with the last github commit, i'll update the windows binary in a few minutes


if your miner states ~1400 shares and the last blocks contains less than that, then the submission didnt reach the server

/edit1:
OR

the only thing i can image of is that the pool software crashed sending some of the shares of the current round into nirvana (for all users) :(
let me check the time of the last restart of the pool software
(this should also be the cause of your connection loss & buggy col/min+sh/min reset)

You'd be correct. Same computer, different times. The 9ish hour long one actually came first. I started it up with similar performance to whats in the first screen shot, went to bed, and woke up with what you see there and took a screenshot. Later on I restarted it for additional screenshots to show the decreasing performance issue. Sorry if that happens to look shady.

Having some issues with the latest linux x64 build on any of the 3 cloud services I've tried (DC, AWS & HP). Didn't have these kind of issues a few days ago (pretty sure I was using v0.6 or lower).

I've tried Debian 7 and almost all versions of Ubuntu to no avail.

After downloading and installing the github function, I clone ptsminer from github, then cd to its directory, and when I attempt to makefile, this error occur:

Code: [Select]

g++ -c -O2  -fpermissive -o obj/cpuid.o cpuid.c

If anyone can link me to v0.6 / v0.5 or share a solution to this issue, that'd be highly appreciated!

With the new miner, after 10 - 15 mins it start getting REJECTIONS one after the other. I re-started it and then again, after 10 mins or so, the rejections started again.  I noticed this version is like 10% faster than the other one (120c/m vs. 110c/m), but the rejections rate went to high now.

As all ways, just letting you know.

On version 7+ what sort of performance increase should I see if I switch from 512 MB per thread (the default) to 1024 MB per thread?

Are we expecting like 5% to 10% or is it something like 40%+???  Thanks for any advice.

Thanks.


Am considering maxing out RAM to 32GB.  Is there a realistic expectation that v.7 would actually perform much better w/ greater RAM available than is used in the default settings?

xolokram, would you mind to pay the abandoned addresses? I had an address for each machine, like:
http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/user/PibtpUeHCXStrAkcD7buVmeyj9UPcEvwxE

But since about 9 days ago I'm mining using the same address for all the miners.

Thank you!

I ran a simple test on one i7 4770 machine.  Started an instance of 1 thread with 512 MB and another 1 thread instance with 1024 MB.  The 1024 MB seems to be doing more than double the amount of work. Not sure if I am reading this correctly, but it seems very impressive.

Sorry if this was worded poorly. Try again?

@xolokram

EDIT: I see you made a new miner for Windows, I'm testing it now, but just a heads up, the issue below still aplies to the 0.5a miner.

What's up?  :D I have some unfortunate news, the earlier "rejection" problem I listed is occurring again, this time using the 0.5a 64 bit miner!

The 0.5a version has never done this before but now it too is not sending the shares to the server...
I'm not sure if this is my internet, or the server... I am using a satellite connection with at least 700ms ping times, but this has never happened in the old 0.2 and 0.4 versions.

Other than that, I wouldn't mine at any other pool! Great job for a one man show xolo!

I also was trying to figure out what's optimal.  It would be nice if the app could auto-tune itself but my guess is that the defaults are already right for you: 4 cores, multithreaded is 8 threads; 8 x 512MB is 4GB ram required.  If you took 1GB ram per thread you'd be swapping all the time.  It's possible 4 threads at 1 GB might be better.  Why not try those two and let us know what works better?  i.e. appending one of these in your command line:

a) 8 27 or
b) 4 28

I found that I can use my machine okay if I just choose "7" threads (on my i7 4770 that has 8 threads avail.)

new windows version out (it's not final yet, still testing)
http://www.mediafire.com/download/52fdhw2c3ny81ti/ptsminer_v07a_x64_bundle_new.zip
now containing several binaries: generic (amd / intel), sse4 and avx
for more information please read: http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=234.msg9657#msg9657

Found a minor bug(or maybe just a documentation issue) with the new win64 binaries you provided. Specifically, the SSE4 binary.
If you just specify cores and ram (and not the instruction set), the SSE binary ignores the memory setting. For example:
ptsminer_sse4.exe %walletaddress% 4  = 4core, 512MB a core
ptsminer_sse4.exe %walletaddress% 4 28 = still does 4cores, 512MB a core
ptsminer_sse4.exe %walletaddress% 4 28 sse4 = 4 cores, 1024MB a core

The AVX binary seems to work fine with just cores and ram settings in my testing. I haven't noticed anything with the intel binary, since in my testing I was using the sph switch already.

This was tested on mainly non-AVX machines running Win7 x64 Ultimate/Pro, Server 2008R2, and 1 Server 2003x64 box.
Proc wise, here are the non-avx ones: 2 C2Q Q6600(SSE3), 1 C2Q Q9550, 1 C2E X7900(SSE3), 2 Xeon DP 5150's(SSE3), and 4 Xeon DP X5365's.

All of the above seem to exhibit the same issue, not a major deal, by any stretch. Note: I only tested using 26/27/28 memory settings and thread values of 2,3,4,6,8.

Side note: Interestingly enough, i do get decent gains using the sse4 binary over intel/sph on the SSE3 based procs. It doesn't seem to be as significant as the gains on the SSE4.1 based procs, but that may just be other factors such as less memory bandwidth, older chipset, etc.

Thanks again!

Post by: xolokram on November 24, 2013, 08:58:01 am
thank you joele

and thank you crz & flashoftheblades <-- give them some hugs (@irc)

@memory settings:
it's highly depending on your system and the bottlenecks that arise from tweaking this parameter; if memory & cpu is fast enough 1024 can be the best solution for you. my tests showed that decent systems are working best with the 512 option. other & older systems may switch to 256 mb (=older) or 2048 (=high-end) or even higher/lower.

@xornof:
thank you for the bug report, will fix this asap
like i said these are not the final v0.7 binaries :D

the advantage of the sse4 binary for sse3 cpus is caused by the auto-optimization which is enabled in the 4 binaries.
ptsminer_amd.exe & ptsminer_intel.exe include MMX, (3DNow), SSE and SSE2
ptsminer_sse4.exe includes MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3 and SSE4.x
ptsminer_avx.exe includes MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4.x and AVX
thus it looks like we're lucky and the code for the sse4 binary has been optimized using up to SSE3, giving you a small advantage over the _amd and _intel version (using SPHLIB)
if it would use SSE4 instructions (which is possible, because i compiled it with SSE4 support) too, it would crash on your SSE3 cpus

@miner: in general
there's still enough room for optimization, e.g. i found a sse3 version for the sha computation (but i'll have to check the code first). i'm not sure about the avx binary and bulldozer cpus, i think i should split this binary into avx-intel and avx-bulldozer to give the binaries a small extra boost.

also i'll have to re-enable the auto-detection for sse4/avx for the linux build.

but first i'll create the "payout abandoned addresses"-script today (later today, it's sunday, pts has to wait a little :) )

Thanks for the windows update. I'm seeing good gains on the sse4 version vs v0.5a on my Q9650 and Q9550 machines.

I noticed something odd. The memory option doesn't seem to be working. On my q9550 box, which has 8Gb ram (DDR2-800), using 27 or 28 results in the same 2GB of ram usage.

like i said these are not the final v0.7 binaries :D

No, thank you sharing your work with the community, we all really do appreciate it.

I have some baseline averages now that it has been a few days, pretty positive across the board.  I am seeing somewhere between 10-20% increase(in c/m) to the older SSE3 machines since .7 dropped. My SSE4.1 and AVX/SSE4 based machines are seeing between 20-40% (right at 40% in the case of my newer Xeon E5-4650 based 32core monsters)
DISCLAIMER: These numbers are just my observations, your results may vary...

Anyhow, i am rambling again.  :P I hope you save some personal time for you and yours, cheers! :)

See my post above, if you add the sse4 option to the end of your command(for the sse4 binary), it will then correctly pick up the memory option. I thought it was me at first, it drove me nuts until i discovered the workaround. xolokram is working on the bugfix.

In the meantime, To use 4 cores and 4GB RAM on the windows SSE4 binary,  use:
Code: [Select]
ptsminer_sse4.exe %walletaddress% 4 28 sse4

Hope that helps!

Hi,

i updated the windows binaries --- see the v0.7 post (http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=234.msg9657#msg9657) (& OP)
download: here (http://www.mediafire.com/download/dks3r25d1bibzc2/ptsminer_v07a_x64_bundle_newer.zip)


/edit: STOP, AVX VERSION IS NOT USING AVX AUTOMATICALLY @ WINDOWS, FIX INCOMING *fixed*

i think the pool will switch to a score-based payout system like this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1976.msg50002#msg50002) soon

ps. github update will follow soon
pps. i have the strange feeling, that the avx code is slower that the sse4 code?!? ok, seems to be just fluctuacting values, will check that with a longer testing period

Hey Xolo, have you seen this?:

The pool, as listed in the topic: "Mining pool list - Updating",
PTSPool:
web:54.238.185.113

Its miner on github goes to the miner of beeeeer pool. Is it strange?
I try to compile it, then when running, the parameter of PTSPool can't be used.
It's beeeeer's miner.

So where is PTSPool's miner?
Thank you!

That's odd

Cute, I get to 0.32 and the pool stops confirming shares :(

@anybody who know the answer

What was the verdict on the miner not submitting the collisions to the server?

btw, it is still happening on the latest release of 0.7 miner. I'm using the AVX version using 4 threads and 1 GB memory/thread. Though it also happens with the sse4 version too.

Is there a version I can use to mine overnight? I'd rather not leave the miner on all night only to see lots of unsubmitted collisions...


Sorry if it sounds like Im complaining xolo, I just want to let you know that it's still happening. Keep up the good work, best pts/xpm pool ever made!

EDIT: can I use the older version of the pts miner still? Or will the server not count the collisions it finds? (like version 0.5 or 0.4)

I may be speaking out of turn, but AFAIK, there was no problems continuing to use the .5a Hotfix1 version, it just doesnt have the AVX/SSE4 instruction set code. I go back and use it when i am troubleshooting an issue on the .7 miner(to eliminate hardware as a cause).  I generally don't see the need to go back to the .4 or earlier versions.

Hope that helps!

Thank you so much xornof! Waiting for your feedback!
Just got home,  I'll start looking at it in a few minutes... Will let everyone know what i find.


@xolo: FYI - I did get a chance to put the "newer" .7 RC2 windows binaries through the paces on most of my windows servers this afternoon, no issues so far. Thanks!

Thanks! You mention that the new 0.7 version gives you no issues in Windows... Is anyone else having this issue where the miner fails to send the collisions to the server?

@xolokram, do you, or a team of people including yourself, manually update the payout page? I've noticed that during the days hours for me (GMT -7), it updates far more often than during the night hours.

EDIT: Actually, I haven't noticed a single share pop up on mine for over 2 hours now.

EDIT 2: Too 2 hours, but a new one finally showed up. Is this normal behaviour?

No problems with the newest build. C/M count is stable, memory options working again, and rejection rates are w/i usual specs. 10-18% gains over v5. Here are some stats on my rigs.

i7 3930K at 4.7 (12Thread) : 300+ C/M
i7 820 (5T): 110  C/M
Largest Azure servers (8C/16GB, Ubuntu 13) with 8Threads: 100 C/M
i5 3337U (3T): ~75 C/M
i5 3470T (3T): ~90 C/M
Sandy/Ivy Bridge Celerons (2T): ~44 C/M





Thanks for sorting it out, Xolo!

nope, i've not seen the post. i guess they just linked to my github and the current version is using a hardcoded pool address, i should re-add a convenient method for parameters :)
but i've seen this
"YPool is officially boycotted until they fix the 'bug' preventing them from processing transactions. Please use other pools."
a little too late imho and i guess they won't give a fu--

@lordfirefox:
can you give us more details on your problem?

@Silver_Pharaoh:
v0.5 & v0.4 work too, i'm kinda riddled by your issue...

@xornof / hayz:
thanks for your help / information

@Gekko:
which OS?
let me re-check the no-chrono makefile

@afr33sl4ve:
it's 'normal', because the payouts depend on confirmations of the found blocks. thus if there's a gap between to found block because of the randomness (bad luck) then there will be a gap for the payouts too.

@xolokram

Don't feel bad bro, I'm stumped too. I used the 0.5 miner (not the 0.5a version) and it too failed to submit shares.

Since this has never happened before on the 0.5a and 0.5 miner, did you update your servers? Maybe something broke it. Or is it because I have a 800 ms ping time?


This won't be an issue if I can get some help to make a batch file to restart the miner every hour... Does anyone know how to do this using .bat files?

Less miner equals less block per day but more reward per block, avg payout is unchanged by number of miners if the timeframe is big enough - less miners mean longer timeframe, alot of miners shorter.

Not sure if this was posted already but www.coins-e.com exchange has started taking Protoshares (PTS).

Coins-e has new management now.  Some improvements are obvious: 2FA (two-factor authentication) now available and a new help desk software.  The site looks to be getting better.

Has there been a benchmark on the most optimal combination of thread vs memory allocated ? I'm currently mining at 5 thread with 4 GB each (I have 32 GB on my beast of alienware). For the moment each workers seem to pop-out 97 C/m on average.

Could I have a better yield with another config ?

AVX

@Moonover:
4 GB each is a overkill, the memory access will probably be your bottleneck, try 512 first, then 1024, and see if it increases your performance

thank you for clarification

Thanks ! Rough test showed an improved sh/m and c/m with 512mb.

512mb : 115 c/m + 5 sh/m
1024 mb: 113 c/m + 3.5 sh/m
4096 mb: 95.3 c/m + 3.2 sh/m

N00b question here, which is the most important, c/m or sh/m ?

I'm now testing how many thread I can put on without  slowing down my alienware too much ... 12 thread at 512mb seem to do it ...

Let see if my laptop catches fire during the night ...

c/m is more important for your overall performance
sh/m fluctuates depending on the pool configuration

please don't try to kill your hardware! :D
i don't know if it's a good idea to mine with a laptop

- xolokram

ps. there's a issue with the pool/new miner producing rejects for one round of received work (until the next work is received), this happens rarely, i'll work on that asap

Miner still fails to hand in shares, but it was pretty stable yesterday. Only 2 or so miner restarts.

Would a screen shot help at all? -- I'll edit this post and upload one when it crashes.
Even though there is very little difference on the screen?

If I don't catch the miner in time, eventually it will stop finding collision altogether until I restart it.

If you're running 12 threads, then that means you probably have either a Sandy Bridge-E or Ivy Bridge-E i7 in your laptop. Those c/m numbers seem a little low for 12 threads. Are you using the AVX binaries? That chip will support it. Also, I find it helpful to set the process priority to low, so it doesn't interfere with whatever you're doing in the foreground. Also like Xolo said, make sure you have good ventilation for your laptop, as we're not responsible for frying hardware.

Sorry, i got hung up in personal stuff and evil work crap and haven't had a chance to update. I ran into a couple snags on mavericks that i don't get in 10.7/10.8, but i have a little time tonight to work on it. I'll update as soon as i know more.

Is beeeeer down? I have reboot on linux and the client says only:

Having the same issues on 2 machines, my local machine, and on a VPS.  IP used: 54.201.26.128:1337  I've waited several days to see if it's a connection issue, but it doesn't clear up.  Any ideas?

Do all your machines use the same wallet id? I accidently put my primecoin wallet in my script and it would not connect to the server, after changing it to my pts wallet it worked fine.

(Why) Is ptsminer slower with higher RAM setting?

If I run ptsminer with standard settings (512 MB) I get about 475c/m or 15.3 sh/m.
If I run ptsminer with setting 28 (1024 MB) I get about 385c/m or 11.6sh/m.

@Gekko:
maybe your RAM access is the bottleneck
thus using more RAM keeps your CPU waiting for data

like jedixjarf said, maybe you're using the wrong parameter for your miner

Xolo, I finally figured out why my miner stops sending shares! See the pic below:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7OL6MIZst3YTTAtd2hDZWFILWc/edit?usp=sharing (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7OL6MIZst3YTTAtd2hDZWFILWc/edit?usp=sharing)

The miner found 2 collsions, but only sent one. After that, the miner doesn't send anymore collisions to the server, and it found the next collisions (that it doesn't send) within seconds of each other for some reason.
So it looks like my miner finds collisions to fast for it to send or something?

You're going to have to be a little more specific than that. You can just wait a while and see if the stat page updates. You should also be seeing the application finding collisions and saying that the share was submitted. Keep in mind, that unless you suspended the process to a screen session, then it probably stopped if you closed your SSH session.

@xolokram

Please disregard my post above, I have found a cheap fix to my miner :

echo Run PTS miner for 30 Mins...
TIMEOUT /T 1920 /NOBREAK

taskkill /F /IM ptsminer_avx_intel.exe
start ptsminer_avx_3cores_3gb.bat  (runs the miner .bat)
Run_Pts_3core.bat                            (runs this .bat again to kill and restart the miner)
pause >nul

Put this inside a .bat and it will launch and kill the miner every 30 minutes! Problem solved, no more "dropped shares" .

Keep up the good work Xolo, your doing great!

Use AVX for i5's.
Here's my command line to help you out:

ptsminer_avx_intel.exe PTS_address_here  4 28 avx
                                                                      |   |   |
                                                         # of cores |   |
                                   use 1024MB of RAM/thread |
                                                                   use AVX
Just replace PTS_address_here with your address and run it. this will work if you have a quad core i5 and at least 6 GB of RAM.

You may also want to try it with 512MB per core. Depending on your exact configuration, you may see better performance.

ptsminer_avx.exe PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap 12 24 sph
using SPHLIB on 12 threads and 64 MByte RAM per thread


But still when I run the (ptsminer_64bit_avxsse) it closes immediately. It has however added a bunch of other files n such in the folder I'm running the miner from.
I'm missing something aren't I? Because I'm fairly certain using the ( ProtoShares-0.2.0) miner will get me exactly 0 shares mined form here until doomsday.

are you running an avx processor?

Actually ....  :o AMD processor.... goddamnit I'm dumb and kept confusing my home specs with works specs.

If  RJ on the screen is accepted blocks so why i see this http://clip2net.com/s/6hDLUE i think its really was accepted only first vps

i just added a small workaround for the rejection problem on whole blocks (auto-reconnecting after 3 rejects in a row) to github.

thx for the information on AVX on EC2, i didn't know that.

to the people who PM me because they are 'not able' to reach the payout barrier, i'll think of a way to execute a manual payout (e.g. using the verify message feature of the miner). give me some time.

@grigower:
i dont understand what you're trying to ask or want to know.

Up to 0.18$/h.
How many collisions? no clue, I just look at how many PTS I got for how much I spent, and it was 50% profit (not huge in dollars, but huge in %..)

I'm on this pool with my windows machine but on coyote with the various free trial virtual machines, mainly just because I found instructions on how to get it running by copy/pasting 3 lines of code.

This isn't working for me on Azure though (newest Ubuntu). Is there any process for beer someone can share please? I'll probably switch over everything I have to this pool then to just be in one place.

I asked for collisions/m because i want to compare the different instances.
Maybe it is a good idea to buy 50 small instances instead of 10 larges instances.
I just put the compile/mining code in the autostart and made an image so it is no extra work for me.

How can I take the above code and make it into autostart?

I'm doing the tour of free offers and have the idea of making images down but didn't try AWS yet.  Other places where small is 1/4 the cost of large I have noticed a small advantage in using 4x small versus 1 large, something like 4.5-5 x4 versus 17-19 hpm (not sure how that translates to collisions).

Having 10+ different PuTTY open is annoying but I have found there are some multi-tab programs to manage them.

This seemed to work but I had to back out of vim because I didn't have permissions to save the file. I realized I needed to prefix the nano command with sudo then it worked... that is about the extent of my knowledge of linux  :)

When I restarted, I found I can use rcconf to check what is running and buildminer is starred, so I guess it is running, but then how do I peek in on it to see its performance?

edit: I'm lost on what to do now. I ran:

screen ./ptsminer <my_addr> -whatever

and it tells me there is no such directory now

Code: [Select]
cd ~/ptsminer/src
If not, clone ptsminer again.

Did I cd when? I thought I was setting up a file to run on autostart, but I want to make sure it is working. I basically followed the instructions with a few modifications and then when I logged onto the VM, I don't know how to check if I am mining or what.

edit: I just redid all the steps as described below and when I get to a blank new terminal after restart I did try to cd into that directory and it says:

Code: [Select]
-bash: cd: /home/azureuser/ptsminer/src: No such file or directory

---------

I just redid the steps on a new server on Azure after getting the old one manually running by the first suggestion.

First I opened a new file

Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/init.d/buildminer
(just added sudo because I didn't have permission without it)

I entered this into the startup script:

Code: [Select]
cd ~
rm -rf ~/ptsminer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y git make g++ build-essential libminiupnpc-dev libboost-$
git clone https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer
cd ~/ptsminer/src
make -f makefile.unix
screen ./ptsminer <my_addr> 1 27

I am running a small VM so set 1 for the 1 core. I left out the sse4 argument now because when I went in and manually typed this the miner would crash but work fine leaving it out and it wasn't in the first instructions.

I saved this then entered:

Code: [Select]
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/buildminer
sudo update-rc.d buildminer defaults

Again, I got errors without 'sudo' but it seemed to work with them.

Then I restart the server, log in and am at a command prompt. Is my miner working? How would I check?

I thought the idea is it is an autocompile/autostart script, so I can make an image of the server and just clone it a bunch of times.

htop showed me near minimum CPU load and the other command said "there is no screen to be attached".

I still have to start burning through my EC2 coupon so I will try your method with that or the other services I have setup already once I have more time later.

The method for coyote's pool stopped working once I got to Azure, so maybe it is Microsoft's fault..

hi,

it looks like the pool completely lost the connection to the protoshares network (necessary to create work for the miners)
starting to produce orphans and being unable to give up-to-date data :( i'm sorry about this inconvenience

i'm currently restarting/reconnecting everything and checking what caused all this

- xolokram

ps. ok, everything has been restarted, i guess some of the remaining blocks are orphans too  :-\
pps. looks like one of the more important nodes i use had a broken blockchain (using the vanilla protoshares client)
ppps. of course this happened while i was sleeping...

This coin is incredibly hard to mine, I have been mining on an off for 4 or 5 days on 2 intel core i5's with 4 threads each and I still only have 0.04345 PTS. I thought is was meant to be mine-able for anybody, at this rate its not going to be profitable at all! Especially with the sky high cost of electricity in the uk....waste if time imo

Dear Xolokram,

Is this a bug?  When my DSL modem was powered off and then on, ptsminer crashed. 

The last message I think I saw was that it would retry after 10-seconds but I think right after that the window closed and it generated a crash dump.

For people with spotty internet connectivity you might want to try unplugging the ethernet to see how the app responds.  It crashed on my Win 8.1 box.

Thanks for your continued bug fixing.

I just added the additional pool to a list, and have it waiting for 3 seconds for work when it tries to connect.  If the pool doesn't give it work it disconnects and tries connecting to the next pool.  Kind of ugly with the hard coded pool list, but it was a quick hack to get my miners back up and hopefully keep them up.

For me it seems that the reject rate it going up for miners which do not have that my cores.

I am currently using 2x 32 core AWS spot instances for testing throughput, an 8 core i7
and a couple of 3 core virtual machines.

The reject rate for the 32 core monsters is below 1%
Reject rate for the 8 core is below 2%

And the reject rate for the 3 core things is at about 15% !!!
(I have 11 of those, and ALL of them have high reject rates)

I think I can see some pattern in this...

Unfortunately I don't know enough of the underlying work distribution software,
but maybe I am not the only one experiencing this situation and it would be
great if there might be some fine-tuning possible?

Who has the same experience?

if this is true it can be a very helpful information actually

@btc2084:
as you see the rejects come in blockwise (ends on "work received"), there's a bug somewhere (in the miner i ---guess---)
this is a known issues, there's a dirty workaround in the latest github (not helpful for windows user i know)

I would be more interested in the number of rejections vs the percentage. Presumably, a larger number of cores can process a larger number of shares, so if it's a fixed amount of rejects no matter the core number, it would appear to be a smaller percentage with more cores.

That means we mined that block, but someone else mined a block as a child to the same parent as ours close to the same time, and the network accepted the other child and thus rejected ours.  Since our block didn't make it into the final chain, we get nothing for it.

or it could be indicative of protoshares client not connected to enough and/or the right peers, or another situation would be a lack of bandwidth and connected to too many peers.  in that case, it'd try to send to them all at once and they'd all get it slow.

I received block 28005 and 28039 from a peer in Germany, despite the pool being in New Jersey (and having over 100 connections in protoshare client).  I imagine it doesn't have very good connectivity (or not enough peers), or maybe it funnels everything through that Hetzner machine (which wouldnt be so hot with the +120-140ms).

re: the 3rd one, I don't think it's done intentionally, but, yeah, there's a... uh... slow quark pool that controls about 80-85% of the hashrate and orphans some godawful number of blocks

The more cores, the more PTS you can mine. Of course those cores should also have a reasonable performance.
Therefore it's depending on core speed (and numbers), not the number of servers.

33 rejects, 5088 valids on a Buffalo, NY server
29 rejects, 2433 valids on a Las Vegas, NV server
24 rejects, 1773 valids on a Las Vegas, NV server
0 rejects, 158 valids on a Scranton, PA server
2 rejects, 144 valids on a Dallas, TX server
1 reject, 74 valids on a Houston, TX server
42 rejects, 1745 valids on a Germany server

Now it's

92 rejects, 10377 valids on Buffalo, NY server (8 cores)
57 rejects, 5090 valids on Las Vegas, NV server (8 cores)
60 rejects, 4352 valids on Las Vegas, NV server (8 cores)
7 rejects, 1070 valids on Scranton, PA server (*8 cores) --  ed: it just seems like 4 cores.  gimp Xeon =(
10 rejects, 1128 valids on Dallas, TX server (4 cores)
5 rejects, 448 valids on Houston, TX server (varies)
69 rejects, 4053 valids on Germany server, (7 cores)
18 rejects, 1494 valids on Lenoir, NC server (8 cores)

these are all using the latest git pull, diff versions of ubuntu,  about half on 12.04 and the other half on 13.10

they're also all using the 1024mb memory option

oh, jfyi, that Dallas server is from burst.net...  any new customer can get a server for a month for $1 from them, w/ no strings attached (besides having to remember to cancel it in time)

I ran the Windows client for a bit and it started out with 457 accepted and 3 rejects... by the time I saw it to cancel it it was at 677 accepted and 77 rejects.

the linux client disconnects and reconnects if it gets 3 rejects in a row, the windows client doesnt

windows binaries are not yet updated, i'll do this later today
the reconnect on rejects is just a (dirty) workaround anyway

You may want to have a look at my ptstools (see my signature for web urls) for easier installation and monitoring your servers.
There is also a small puppet manifest available.

I am looking at my log and I received all the blocks solved by beeeeer from between 7-10 seconds after it reports them as being found on the website (which means that one or both of our clocks are off but also there shouldn't be a range of 7-10 seconds, shouldn't be greater than 1 second)

but for the one that was orphaned, 28296 2013-12-05 01:43:20, I received:

I guess the node reaction after block #28295 was received is relevant too:

so I think protoshare client connectivity is probably an issue here, for some of these

1. Which edition settings is best for me? (that is to say, i want to know the different between avx, sse4,intel and sphlib, and which is the fastest)
2. Is Hyper-threading useful for mining?(I can run 40 threads when ht is enabled, and 20 threads when ht is disabled)

2. 20 threads, 4GB per thread (30)

need I enable sph mode when I use AVX miner?

@xolokram:
please dirty-workaround the Windows version!  I switched back to your XPM pool until I can get an understanding if PTS mining is not just heating the room. :)

...

@btc2084:
as you see the rejects come in blockwise (ends on "work received"), there's a bug somewhere (in the miner i ---guess---)
this is a known issues, there's a dirty workaround in the latest github (not helpful for windows user i know)

@xolokram I'm sorry I should've been more specific...

28260 2013-12-04 23:45:23 7702 / 1237920 -> 0.14946 PTS / 24.02 PTS -> block waiting for confirmations
28212 2013-12-04 21:21:58 3417 / 572167 -> 0.15100 PTS / 25.28 PTS -> block waiting for confirmations

My question is why the drop in shares distributed. Does it have to do with the growing complexity? I'm a newb

The block rewards decreases after some (2000+) blocks. Its initial value was 50.

EDIT: Nevermind. Reopened the wallet client. Turns out the block chain wasn't updating at all. :\ The transaction is there. :D Thanks again!

I'm also having this issue.  Eventually the wallet client stops updating even though it still says its connected.  Nothing updates, but everything looks fine and says that's it's connected to the network, until I restart it and find that I'm X number of hours behind.  Then I see my recent payouts.  Trying to figure out what's going on.

hi,
I'm sorry for the late reply. i'm compiling the windows binaries right now, i'll update this (and the first) post when they're uploaded to mediafire

here's the hotfix #3: *CLICK* (http://www.mediafire.com/download/gezxz50ncr90veg/ptsminer_v07b_x64_bundle.zip) (Windows 64Bit Binaries)

@macos:
i dont have a test environment, but let me know if you're able to fix something with the osx makefile.

@drmyfore:
i think you'll have to test the best value for you on your own, as the performance the miner is depending on your cpu & ram
and hypter-threading's additional performance is fluctuating too

I am just curious because when I used to mine XPM every share found would show up in my stats and I would get paid based on its' value.  Now I have 3000 shares and only get paid on 10-20 of them.  What gives?

I just had 3 different servers, from 3 different IPs simultaneously start getting rejects a few moments ago.  The reconnect feature got things going again, but something's up on the pool end!

Probably because a lot of the time there aren't any nodes with incoming connections to connect to?...  I had a friend that had the same problem, not getting blockchain to update, just told him to addnode 5.9.24.81. 

It's at 135/500 connections right now.  I have it set for only 20 outbound connections.. but when it does lose one, it still takes up to a hundred or two tries on average to find a new node to connect to.

Hi,

Is the hash rate still bugged ?
I don't undestand. It is going faster when I use 1 thread than 48. Explain me please.
Should I use 48 instance of 1 thread instead of 1 instance of 48 thread ?

Thanks

@xolokram, thanks for the update. Here's the result on my Dell XPS 8700, Intel i7-4770 @ 3.40Ghz w/ 8GB RAM.

Note that I'm not sure the version number is correct for Hotfix#3.

I'm really clueless in the whole "Collision" thing but is it possible that someone is seeing the submission and somehow submitting to a different pool, "stealing" the submission and still somehow getting it in beforehand.  Does it seem right that so many are collisions?  If I am mining an not getting anything with PTS but collisions shouldn't I switch to another coin?

Thanks for the work Xolo. It does look like this fix corrected the REJECTION issues! :)

@BTC2084

I think the collisions are a good thing but I am confused on why I have so many collisions that result in shares submitted and only get paid on a few.  I am currently running 14 threads and am getting around 5000 collisions per day and only get paid on about 22 per day.

I think it works this way (although I have asked and nobody has responded):

 - Each collision results in either a SHARE or a REJECTED response.

 - Each SHARE represents your part of a Block or Chain (not sure of the correct terminology)

 - You do NOT get paid per SHARE.

 - You get paid on multiple SHARE submissions in the same Block or Chain.  If I submit 40 SHAREs in the same Block/Chain I might get paid .00156 but if I submit 250 SHAREs in the same Block/Chain I might get paid .0146 for the work that my miners did on that particular Block/Chain.

I am just guessing that this is how it works based on my experience.  It seems that as the difficulty has risen (and the value of PTS) the payouts have gotten few and far between.  But Xolo's pool is the best by far.  The dude is dedicated.

Feel free to correct me on any incorrect assumptions.

@Gilligan

Would be nice if we get credit for submitting even if we have collisions but still it seems like if it were possible to avoid them the pool would make more, right?  Thanks for sharing your perspective. I'm trying to understand it still.

I know I am being a bit paranoid when I suggest that so many collisions might be theft but it seems like they started suddenly and in the past not nearly as many occurred.

@xolokram, is it expected that nearly every stats post should include a "collision found"?

If it is "normal" perhaps the message could be shortened and the unique non-collisions should be shown -?

@BTC2084

I think the collisions are a good thing but I am confused on why I have so many collisions that result in shares submitted and only get paid on a few.  I am currently running 14 threads and am getting around 5000 collisions per day and only get paid on about 22 per day.

I think it works this way (although I have asked and nobody has responded):

 - Each collision results in either a SHARE or a REJECTED response.
 - Each SHARE represents your part of a Block or Chain (not sure of the correct terminology)
 - You do NOT get paid per SHARE.
 - You get paid on multiple SHARE submissions in the same Block or Chain.  If I submit 40 SHAREs in the same Block/Chain I might get paid .00156 but if I submit 250 SHAREs in the same Block/Chain I might get paid .0146 for the work that my miners did on that particular Block/Chain.

I am just guessing that this is how it works based on my experience.  It seems that as the difficulty has risen (and the value of PTS) the payouts have gotten few and far between.  But Xolo's pool is the best by far.  The dude is dedicated.

Feel free to correct me on any incorrect assumptions.

Gilligan, I think you are confusing shares/minute and collisions/minute. You only get paid for the shares. Collision = COULD BE A SHARE, COULD BE NOTHING. If it prints a new line, it's a share or reject. If you do perhaps 100 collisions per minute, you might get 5 shares per minute. The miner keeps a running tally of the number of shares. Every time a new line is printed that says either Share or reject, it gets added to the tally.

1. Collision - nothing is printed UNLESS... (see 2)
2. If the collision is a share, it prints "collision is found"
3. Same print, next line: "share submitted"
4. If it's a share, prints "SHARE" on the next line
5. If it's a rejected share, prints 'REJECTED" on the next line.

Now, if you're running 14 cores, only having 22 shares a day is laughably low. Figure out what's wrong.

These are my stats, from running my laptop getting ~1 share/minute, plus 20 cores on Azure (doing 250 or so c/m, probably 10+ish shares/min).

29758 2013-12-08 03:31:27 1465 / 1615041 -> 0.02180 PTS / 24.03 PTS -> block waiting for confirmations
29706 2013-12-08 00:38:29 1324 / 1453678 -> 0.02188 PTS / 24.02 PTS -> block waiting for confirmations
29656 2013-12-07 21:55:48 148 / 177692 -> 0.02000 PTS / 24.02 PTS -> block waiting for confirmations
29650 2013-12-07 21:34:19 77 / 79565 -> 0.02324 PTS / 24.02 PTS -> block waiting for confirmations

So, over 6 hours, I have about 3000 shares - 500 an hour, 8.25 a minute, roughly.

What CPU, have you checked on your miner to see what it's printing out, etc? I have ~6% rejected on my dual-core laptop, servers are all around 1%, maybe less rejected.

Another thing you could have wrong - did you incorrectly type in your wallet address on any of your miners?

It looks like almost everyone has a ratio ~30 collisions per share. Could be a little more/less. It's not that you're not being paid for 97% of your collisions, you need X amount of collisions (on average) to get a share. Or maybe 30(ish) collisions = 1 share.No way around it, and it's nothing to do with inefficiency. If everyone got 1 collision = 1 share, PTS would've been entirely mined out 2 weeks ago. The whole way cryptography works is, there's a lot of guessing if you don't know how to break the encryption. 99.99999999% of the work done is guesswork, but there's no way around it.

This is what I was trying to say.  The ratio is about 30:1.  That is all I needed to know.  As long as that is how it is for everyone I am good with it.

Thanks for breaking it down for me.

@zvs: I guess my question is: Why do I get such noisy looking output?  For newbs like me, I just want stats coming out of the miner that are meaningful, numbers I can compare with others for performance tuning, and to let me know if there is something wrong with the system.  With so many constant "collisions" I have no idea if things are working. It doesn't inspire confidence. The word collision, speaking figuratively, just doesn't sound like a positive thing. So the only thing I know is "something might not be working well here because word "COLLISION" is repeatedly being thrown up on the screen, therefore, perhaps I should be mining something else.

I went back to XPM for a while but the beeeeer.org xpm miner hasn't been respond any more either. :(  It sucks but I am considering going back to ypool.

Thanks for posting this, I had the same problem and the restart of the PTS wallet has fixed it.

On the other hand, it raises the question with the PTS wallet itself. Why is it showing the green check mark "synchronized" when in fact it is not.

PS Later I'm thinking it might have something to do with the fact that I changed my wireless connection earlier yesterday. Other coin wallets were also showing they were synchronized when in fact they were not.

as i was focusing on pts too much the last couple of weeks (the todos were piling up :) )

@zzz111:
it's ok, you can do that.

@Gilligan:
per round

a round (to find a block) takes usually several thousands shares
this is your portion of this specific round

beeeer's pts pool is paying you proportional on a block/round (not like the XPM pool, where you're paid per share)

After having trust issues with pts.rpool.net, i decided to switch back to b(e-5)r.

Just coming home from dropping my girlfriend to the airport and I found the 3 computers that i had started to mine there where showing between 12% and 20% Rejected shares. WTF

I had the new Update #3 software that is on listed on their site running. Is there something I should know about? 20% of the work the computers are doing rejected?

If it is a client issues, I would love to hear about a solution or a hint what I could do to bring down the REJECTED% Rate...

Yes higher but not by much.  When coyotepool was running, right before it was closed, I was making the same amount I have all together with your pool in half a day with 3x less the power I'm mining with now. I mine LTC at this same speed...

so are you comparing your hardware setups, software or (totally different) coins?
or all together?

all i see (from your screenshot):
you've recently made 0.00941 PTS in 6 hours
before that you've made 0.00965 PTS in 21 hours

i would call that an improvement  :o

- xolokram

/edit: ok, i see there are quite huge gaps in your stats so i guess you're not mining 24hours a day
what is your miner configuration for these two hardware setups???

Someone kept closing my miner before since it was on my home computer, which is why there's time gaps. I'm just saying with the exact same hardware/software, I can mine the same amount of LTC (higher difficulty) as I do here with PTS. All I want to do is mine another 8 PTS before the 24th so I can get myself a founders ID.

I'm more than sure I should be mining more than 0.00733 PTS in a few hours with 16GB RAM and 8CPU's from the cloud mining tutorial link you provided on the pool website.

EDIT: I followed this tutorial for the cloud mining a few hours ago https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=722.0 and started with the 16Gb RAM and 8 CPU's, running 12 threads.

And for my home PC I was running 8GB ram at 7 threads.

EDIT: Nevermind. Reopened the wallet client. Turns out the block chain wasn't updating at all. :\ The transaction is there. :D Thanks again!

I'm also having this issue.  Eventually the wallet client stops updating even though it still says its connected.  Nothing updates, but everything looks fine and says that's it's connected to the network, until I restart it and find that I'm X number of hours behind.  Then I see my recent payouts.  Trying to figure out what's going on.

Probably because a lot of the time there aren't any nodes with incoming connections to connect to?...  I had a friend that had the same problem, not getting blockchain to update, just told him to addnode 5.9.24.81. 

It's at 135/500 connections right now.  I have it set for only 20 outbound connections.. but when it does lose one, it still takes up to a hundred or two tries on average to find a new node to connect to.
Thanks for this - been trying to find a way to get the wallet to play nice all day. Where did you get that node IP from?

Ah, just now saw the post.  5.9.24.81 is my Hetzner machine.  I used to enjoy filling up the 'hub nodes' list on blockchain.info, but it also caused a lot of problems (people thinking I have lots of bitcoins cause I'm #1 on the list, people thinking I stole their bitcoins cause my IP showed on their transaction, people DDoS'ing me for whatever reason, etc) so I finally repurposed it about 2 weeks ago.  It was on quarks, now it's on protoshares.

..  and it uses the amazing chuck norris subclient

In the last 24 hours I've had a sudden drop of performance. My main miner is an i7-4770K and is only processing 1.5 shares a minute. Yesterday it was doing around 4 shares a minute. Has there been an increase in difficulty or something like that can explain it?

proportional, if all miners submit 80% of the shares on share target 3fff.. than on share target 7fff.. than your payout is the same

Hi all,

Looking for your help. Each time I try to open ptsminer (v05 or v07) it closes immediately. This happens both before and after I have edited the "EDIT-ME" bat file.

Any suggestions? Has anyone encountered this problem.

Thanks in advance

that looks fine, do you get any error message or output from the miner?

/edit: i can connect from my place with your .bat, just tested it

@drmyfore:
collision / minute <-- the actual work that's done to find a protoshares block (aka your performance, compare this to others)
shares / minute <-- the # of shares you're submitting, this is also depending on the server config (aka sharetarget, this is not a good measure to compare)

Is there another pool or port that I could add, it may be something in my network that I don't have access to change. I was mining with the protoshare wallet earlier on this machine and it was working OK with the following added to it:  -connect=168.63.12.227:80

Can I add that in the edit file?

cat /proc/cpuinfo or use cpu-id to see if they have avx or sse4.   

well, i can tell you the i7 2600 has avx & sse4, unsure about whatever xeon that is.  since it's a hexacore i think it also has avx (all the hexacore xeons do dont they?)

avx is better, theoretically.  i dont notice much diff between avx and sse4, either.   the diff between avx/sse4 and sph should be noticeable though, maybe over a longer period of time

some machines are more suited to something like quark, eg dual core Xeon L5420 which will max out at around 100 collisions on ptsminer vs 650khash/s on minerd...   1240v3 will get around 800khash/s but 170-180'ish collisions

@xolokram:  Might you be able to compile a "fat" binary and have the code just test to see what capabilities are available, and then have it run the right code?  That would be soooo much easier for users to get the best results, wouldn't it?

I have the same problem - I really have no idea what to use.

I found the wikipedia article that shows the following so I just assumed AVX is the best thing to run if my processor works with it. But it sure would be grand if the app would choose for us.

 "AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) is an advanced version of SSE announced by Intel featuring a widened data path from 128 bits to 256 bits and 3-operand instructions (up from 2). Intel released processors in early 2011 with AVX support.[4] AVX requires support from the operating system. AVX cannot be used on older operating systems like Windows XP or Windows Vista, even if the CPU supports AVX." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streaming_SIMD_Extensions

... differences between the executables:
ptsminer_avx_intel.exe
ptsminer_intel.exe
ptsminer_sse4.exe

And the parameters:
-avx
-sse4
-sph

Any advice on AMD processor ?

About the RAM, does the clockrate make a difference for you ?

More ram is better only if the ram is fast enough.

if you have a modern cpu you should use the avx version and it --should-- also activate avx on its own.
if you're unsure about your cpu then use the sse4 version and it --should-- also activate sse4 on its own, otherwise it will fallback (just like the avx version) to sphlib.

if you encounter multiple random crashs, then your cpu is not suitable for avx and sse4 at all (aka your cpu is old), then you should use the sph version.

@Harvester:
you should use the default of the ram usage parameter. if you're feeling lucky (aka you have very fast ram/cpu) and have enough ram then you can increase it. if you dont have enough ram, decrease it. but maxing it out with even more ram, just because you have enough ram is not very useful as the ram with rapidly become your new bottleneck for the computation.

@zvs:
thank you.

54.201.26.128 doesn't respond to pings at my location, either. Odd, because it's definitely up (miners are connecting and getting/submitting work off-site at current). Likeliness is the system the pool is sat on is just setup to reject ICMP echo requests and rather not that the server is down.

Have you tried running a miner against it, or is it just not responding to a standard ping?

With my standard bat file setup just like I have on my home PC, it doesn't connect and won't mine. I opened everything up on my local firewall but I am not sure if the location I am at is blocking that port (router settings, etc), that activity, or what-not.

I had to put a flag on the wallet app to get it to connect to a node by adding it to the run command, it mined all night, supposedly, but it actually didn't do anything. Very weird. When I checked on it this morning, it had a runtime error saying it asked it to shutdown in an odd manner. I checked the log file, it didn't have a hashrate.

I really want to set up this x64 miner but the damn thing won't connect still, no matter what I do.

that means proxy & jhProtominer (afaik) should be possible without problems

It is possible that the two miners have different calculation of the collisions. What matter is how much ProtoShares you get in 24 hours.

So it looks like it's working?  (these are the only two rejecteds I've seen, just thought I'd put them in for good measure)

But when I go to the address to check if I've got anything:

http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/user/Pq3v5ag52s5KKSgne44YeuPf7Yae1G2bSQ

I see a balance of 0.  Should I see a small balance with a lot of leading zeroes (such as 0.000001) yet?

I've been mining with cgminer and bfgminer successfully with "standard" pools, but been trying lately to do something with the CPU on my machine as well, and it mostly seems to be currencies where you don't have an 'account' as such, and don't have a nice web front end (such as coinotron, btcguild), and I've not really had a lot of luck; on beeeeer.org I've got XPM working OK, but wanted to get pts on the go as well.  Any help is appreciated.

Sorry, just don't want to leave it on for two days only to find that I've done something stupid.  As I say, the XPM miner is working fine on the beeeeer pool, and I have BTC and LTC mining going on here as well on other machines... so I'm not a complete donut.  But maybe half one!

Last question about ram influence on mining results. Is it better to use maximum amount? It's obvious to me.. but better asking :D
I've actually got lower performance by using the 1024mb option over the 512mb option. No idea why - there doesn't seem to be any clear correlation to me..

It is because you are above your max RAM amount so your system is using cache to balance.
Sorry, I don't think so - I have a dual core (2 core) system with 8GB of RAM. If I were to use the 512mb option, approximately 1024mb of RAM would be used by the miner. If I were to use the 1024mb option, approximately 2048mb were to be used by the miner. 2048mb is nowhere near the 8192mb of total RAM in my system, so the reason for my performance decrease is not that my system is using page/swap. :)

When the block you are working on gets found, you will receive a payout. It will be a percentage of the total block value, defined by how many shares you have mined. Blocks can take anywhere between 10 minutes and 4 hours to be found - your balance will be updated then.

As said to me, just wait for a bit.  I did 3-4 hours mining yesterday evening, and the balance didn't start showing up on my page until I had a look this morning (UK time).  Not sure what the lag was, but it was certainly over 6 hours between me starting and seeing anything.  Mining I've done this afternoon has already started to show up, so there is clearly some variance.

Exactly this.

Sometimes it can take literally minutes for the balance to update (a new block to be found). Sometimes it can take upwards of 6 hours. As with a lot of cryptocurrency mining - luck of the draw :P And patience!

For those reading my previous posts, testing with telnet using other ports showed that something in my network infrastructure is blocking my connection to their IP with port 1337.

Guys,

anyone tried to mine using beeeer.org pool using this specs
Dual Quad Core Server Xeon E5620 2.4GHz
16GB RAM
500GB Storage
10TB Bandwidth

average PTS mine per day with the said specs?

TIA,

Mike

this block

http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/block/32639

had 4115 shares per minute

a single e5620 would probably get about 1.5 shares/m?  so it would have received 0.0079017010935601 from that block. 

i dont have a protoshares calculator or anything, so dont know how many blocks this pool should average per day.  just from eyeballing it for a few mins, i guess around 14 avg after taking away some as orphans.  so 14 * 0.0079, around 0.11, based on 4115 sh/m.  the website usually reports 5000+ though.

uh, my guess would be .08-.10 a day, well, more like .07-.09, because I think 1.5 sh/m is overly generous

I was getting 0.186 PTS per day on one Xeon W3530 before the difficulty increase on the 22nd.  Now I'm getting 0.0516 PTS/day by my calculations :(

Might be time for the pool to change to 0.01 payout threshold?

Yep, this new difficulty increase was harsh. I'm 16 hours in with the HP Cloud on a 4XL server, 10 hours' worth paid out and that's only ~0.07. I might get 0.21 total, maybe a little more before the ~26.5 hours ($50) free runs up.

Kind of sad really.. $50 worth of server time, $5 worth of PTS. But free money is money.

This pool needs some more mining support!  I've been mining on here for more than a month, it is a little curious why not as many people mine here as other sites.

This pool needs some more mining support!  I've been mining on here for more than a month, it is a little curious why not as many people mine here as other sites.

  • Very reliable, hasn't gone down in a month
  • ypool got 14 out of the last 24 blocks, thats 58%!  This is risky for protoshares network, because if ypool get's hacked, a 51% attack can bring down the network?
  • the miner is as fast as any others (correct me if I'm wrong), which means you make at least the same on beeeer as anywhere else.
  • lower fees, ypool has 6% fee, beeer 3%
  • smaller automatic payout threshold, ypool's minimum is 1 PTS, beeeer's is 0.2, better for small miners.
  • Better, more advanced user interface!  ;)

How many prs did you mine in 1 month. Does it profitable or ROI is positive?...ive been playing around this one using digitalocean, dedicated server..still no profit...i think its much better to buy on exchange rather than mining...i dont want to pull down this thread but for the moment with the current price of pts

It was profitable for me, before the difficulty increase a few days ago.  It depends on your costs of course.

I just started with pts a couple days ago. Figures, just at difficulty increase but anyway I'm having fun.
Using the Azure free trial is pretty good. 2 extra large and a large widows machines.  The ubuntu server 10.3 won't run the miner for some reason.
The HP Cloud will run...but slow. I tried the 16 small instances idea, but it didn't work. Just gonna burn up the $50 with a 16 core.

If you did want to buy pts what's the absolute easiest way to go about it?
Found the buy pts subforum  :)

It would be helpful for new people working under linux to have the following instruction stated in first post:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install yasm -y git make g++ build-essential libminiupnpc-dev
sudo apt-get install -y libboost-all-dev libdb++-dev libgmp-dev libssl-dev dos2unix
git clone https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer
cd ~/ptsminer/src
make -f makefile.unix
./ptsminer <your PTS address> <number of threads>

Running CentOS 6.5, this command doesn't work for me.  I'm 99% (there's always that 1%...) certain I have all the dependencies required.  This is the output I receive:

Code: [Select]
make -f makefile.unix
g++ -c -O2  -fpermissive -o obj/cpuid.o cpuid.c
make: g++: Command not found
make: *** [obj/cpuid.o] Error 127

When I run ./osfinder.sh, it correctly recognizes my distro as RedHat.  The error references "cpuid.o", where that file doesn't seem to exist in the .zip I downloaded.

It's probably a PEBKAC issue, but I can't figure out why this won't compile!  Hopefully I provided all relevant info necessary.

edit:  I also have tried the following from Jabbaah found here (https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=234.msg9929#msg9929):

Quote
I checked the ptsminer compilation on a CentOS 6.3 VM now. Following is the way it works...

Use the makefile.unix.no-chrono - fire up your favourite editor and change line 27 as follows:

Old:
   -l boost_thread$(BOOST_LIB_SUFFIX)

New:
   -l boost_thread-mt$(BOOST_LIB_SUFFIX)

Now compile using
make -f makefile.unix.no-chrono clean
make -f makefile.unix.no-chrono

Voilà! You should get a brand new ptsminer on CentOS.  ;-)

I really hate to be that guy, but I believe I am doing things wrong, maybe something got lost in translation since English isn't my language because I have read the whole thread trying to figure out where my settings are wrong. I am a complete rookie at this, but I would like to learn. As for now I have mined for a day or so, but it seems like this work isn't getting where it should and it is probably  something I failed at. I don't have a super computer but thought that I atleast would be able to see something when searching for my user but nothing yet, reading the thread I have tried to go to the page and Ctrl+f search for my user but it's nowhere.

My user is: PsN4yAoZYbEfzN4gsAU7KCGvYAMF6KYC1u

I am running a i7 3770K with 16 GB, I am using the v0.7 version of your miner ( the AVX one)

@neverenough:
i can't find any substring of your address either in the payouts, since when are you mining? the first stats will appear when a block has been found (aka a round ends) you participated in!
what's the command line you use to start the miner?

@MrDiscordia:
g++ (the C++ compiler) is missing!

@skaffen:
it's 6% for ypool and ~1% for yv1900 (or whatever his nickname is), his commonly used miner is taking fees too...
i know that my ptsminer is not the most efficient one and the stats on the webfrontend looks crappy, but people dont seem to care about the network as long as there's profit (thinking about the transaction "bug" of jh's pts miner, >50% pools etc.pp.)

Is buying more RAM and using a greater RAM parameter actually supposed to help!??!

I bought 32GB -- dumb because I was running 8 threads and I can do that at 2GB per thread but not 4GB per thread b/c then there is no OS room left -- and my stupid computer system doesn't recognize the DD3-2400 Mhz (Pc3-19200) speed and drops down to 1333Mhz.  The older RAM was 1600 Mhz. 

At any rate, more RAM, slower speed -- it seems to be churning away at roughly the same 2.2 or now, 2.1, mh/s.

Is greater RAM actually supposed to make hashing PTS faster? Doesn't seem to make any difference.

As near as I can tell, more RAM (and higher RAM parameter) will help a bit, but it's highly dependent on how fast your RAM is, and the bus speed, and the timing, etc... If the data being stuffed into RAM is too large for the pipeline feeding it, it becomes a performance bottleneck, and slows you down. You can only test it and see what happens on your machine.

Not sure which source you're talking about, but in any of the cases I can think of, it wouldn't just be for 'Ubuntu server', it'd be for any version of Ubuntu.

I don't know what this ubuntu on a stick is, but maybe it's missing some repository information.

You don't need dos2unix to run ptsminer.  You could either add the repositories, or try libboost1.53-all-dev or libboost1.49-all-dev

I think I found it. I restarted ptsminer at some point and somehow the wallet address I gave it was missing 2 characters, so I guess I was generating protoshares for a nonexistent wallet.  :'(
What's weird is that the 2 characters weren't missing from the beginning or the end of the string; they were the 6th and 7th characters from the end.   ???  I always copy and paste the address from the protoshares wallet GUI so I can't imagine how characters were dropped from inside the string rather than one end or the other. Very strange. I've just lost some of my faith in Ubuntu copy and paste. I'll be carefully eyeballing every character of that address in the future.

Yep. That was the problem. I just restarted ptsminer with the correct address and almost immediately beeeeer showed a new block awaiting confirmation. It's the first new block since 12/18.

davidm, send me a signed message from the correct address using the original protoshares client so i can verify that you're the owner

When you say "the original protoshares client" do you mean protoshares-qt? How do I send a message with it?

And there's still something weird going on because there's still only that one new block and it's still awaiting confirmation 10 hours later.

yes, protoshares-qt.

But if anyone else wants to do it, his donation address is listed at the bottom of each of his posts:
  PTS: PbfspbvSWxYqrp3DpRH7bsrmEqzY3418Ap

Thanks again xolokram for all the updates. 

If you come up with a way to allow us to optionally submit feedback to the some system stats on our computer and mining speed I think it would be a wonderful addition.

I'd love to be able to opt in and provide computer model name / no / OS version / CPU & RAM along with average hashing speeds.  Because I'd love to see what comes back as best bang for the buck if somehow possible.

Are we getting killed by other pools when finding blocks (ie. ypool)?  I'm wondering if they just have a lot more workers than us, they are finding about 122 blocks per day.  The payout is good when we do find one, but when it's only 2-3 per day now it doesn't add up to much.

@hammerbrain:
what error message do you get?

@pool(+sdmented+doxymoron):
yep, pool is pretty small (<4%) and the ptsminer is not the most efficient one :(
size of the pool shouldnt be an issue (as long as it's not very small), because bigger pools means more people to share the reward with
most important thing is the efficiency of the miner, which is a little bit suffering on beeeeer's pts pool due to the current rejection problem
i'll try to sort out this problem in the near future (@sdmented: feel free to wait for that or help us now :) )

@all:
no pool fees atm (along with less tech support :) ) for the next few days
happy holidays

I'll look at it, if the loss isn't too much I may just move my stuff sooner rather than later.  Actually here very shortly I will have an extremely large number of machines.  I really hope you can figure it out and get close to the speed of ypool.  I'm not too concerned with the frequency of payouts being lower.  I just need the daily income to be relatively close to what I'm getting currently.

I got about 20% more c/m from that other mining client, but the pool charged (I believe) 2% more, plus the miner would reset itself somewhat frequently, so you'd lose an additional x% from the 'free 20 seconds' that occurs at the start & every time it does reset, in the end probably something like 7-8% fee.

Well, i used to get about 20% more that is, the one @ https://github.com/girino/ptsminer.git , is about 10-15% less, but I'm still trying some things with it

(eg, Q6600 @ 2.4MHz gets me 65c/m now instead of 60c/m, but that one was compiled with icc, which took quite a while.. oh,   i haven't tried it yet on something w/ avx, that should be more %)

i have noticed more rejects though, just in general from the last few days

Allthough the 2874960.0 c/m | 43440.0 sh/m sound pretty mouthwatering all my shares get rejected.
Could be the hoster blocking some things, yours is the only working miner. Without sse4 or avx flags i get regular mining speeds. Might there be a workaround?

@mcgun182

With 50 c/m or "collisions per minute" and 1 sh/m "shares per minute" you have a middle of the road, kinda older cpu. You need a more powerful cpu or A LOT of cpu's running simultaneously at that speed.

Try learning about cloud mining if just for the learning experience. Right now it will take you prolly three months for one pts.

I have a feature request for the client. I really miss log files! It should not be too complicated to implement?

Also, one of my miners is also on a dodgy wlan and will loose its connection a couple of seconds every now and then. The miner crashes if its not able to resolve the host. Would it be possible to get the miner to wait 30 seconds and retry the connection it its not able to resolve the pool host?

i think it's related to the increase in activity.  server probably cant handle it

@xolokram -

Suggestions for claiming memorycoins for pts earlier than block 32001?

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=1310.0

Any idea if you are going to start a MMC / Memorycoin pool also?

If you're using sse4 you might try wjchen's fork. He's done some tuning to the ASM code and you can get an extra 3% (at least i did on my chromebook, not sure how it does on a "real" machine.)

https://github.com/wjchen/ptsminer

I'll check with him if his changes can be applied to avx or if it's sse4 only.

Hi,

Why from the 20 PTS Reward, 18.60596848873208 is for just 1 address?

And all the rest 0.00XXXXX

Sorry if it is obvious... this is my first mining action... dont understand very well...

I´m talking about this payment: http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/payout/36254

Thanks!

using newest git version ptsminer on gentoo gnu/linux x86_64

I've upgraded gcc and compiling a new binary now, i'll give it a shot

xolokram,

If one would like to name protocol used by ptsminer in URI, what should be appropriate? Is be5r OK? Something like be5r://ptsmine.beeeeer.org:1337 looks reasonable?

Also what is intended function of fee_to_pay in login msg? Shall be set exactly as in current git version or has some flexibility?

(altough i'm probably too late for some of you)
happy new year
etc.pp.

@yvg:
it is/was a part of primecoin miner (which is the base source code of this miner)
it's ignored by the pts pool
will think about the URI thing

@noobster:
i know

@manobra:
that is a invalid protoshares address. the pool (and everyone else) is not able to send a payout to this address, but someone mined on it...
and it's not the payout for 1 found block, it's the sum of all payouts until then. check the "add" field for the payouts for one block.

Well.... if 18 PTS were mined to an invalid address.... what happens with these PTSs?

I already got 0.000284 PTS!!! Damm!!!!

@xolokram

Hey Xolo! My fellow miners convinced me to return to PTS mining, and as you know the miner doesn't like my rig.  :'(

Here's my new problem: I downloaded the newest PTS miner (update 3) but sometimes upon launching the miner using my .bat file (which is that dirty workaround I made) the miner crashes saying: "No such host known"

What's going on? I can access ptsweb.beeeeer.org just fine with my browser but with the miner, it's hit and miss....
Any idea's? (maybe make the miner continuously ignore that error and force reconnect??)

ugh I hate it when it takes 10 hours to find a block  :(

If it takes 1 hour I get 0.015 PTS
If it takes 10 hours I get 0.015 PTS
If it takes 2 years I get 0.015 PTS

@Silver_Pharaoh:
hi and welcome back
that problem sounds strange, are you losing your connection that often?
i'll look in this problem, but i honestly think it's more your connection than something with the pool/miner

@manobra:
nothing happens, until someone's able to give me a clear evidence of a typo (PM'ing me the correct address & a verifiable signature) or something like this
every now and then i post invalid mining addresses (there are more than just this one the pool) in this thread and hope for some useful answers... i guess it's time again to do this :)

Does that change the payout for blocks taking more shares? If I get more shares won't everyone else, causing me to get the same payout no matter the shares it took for the block?

A share is worth what a share is worth for that block  ;)
Divide your shares by the number of shares generated for that block to get your proportion of the payout.
There isn't a set "rate" that each share is worth, it all depends on how many shares are generated, and how many users are generating the shares for that block.

On your user page it shows you what your portion of the total payout is for each block.

Yes!!

Some times 10 shares sent = 0.00002 PTS (10 shares from a total of 3.444.777 shares) => 20 PTS divided by 3.444.777 x 10 = 0.00002)

At the same time, I can send 10 shares (from a total of 15.333 shares) => 20 PTS divided by 15.333 x 10 = 0.0122)

PS: These are fake numbers, it is just for you to understand de math!

Hope I help!

Happy new Year!!!

xolokram,

Any decision on URI naming? If no objection, I will use xram4:// to reflect comments made in sources, and major/minor version set as appropriate.

Now for others - I have yam M7i version with beeeeer protocol support, so if some will be interested in private testing - PM me and I will send you download link.

If testing will be OK I will add this support to main line and keep joint distribution.

Great, thanks.

So I decided to use xram4:// because of the protocol is already used for MMC that is not under be^5r domain.

It depends on our pool finding a block. When a new block is mined by the pool shares getdistributed. Sometimes this happens once per hour, other times once a day. Just an idea of the amount of variance involved.

I was mining for the last few days and it was just fine, however today i get loads of rejects again. about 30%

what is the reason for that? where the pool is located? maybe its because of latency I get like 190 ms... consider opening another pool in europe maybe? or loose miners.

thanks

It is possible there are more workers on the pool or the hash rate of the entire network got bigger. Both of these can increase the reject rate due to the mining of so called 'stale' blocks.

Hello, I am new to PTS ming. By looking through the thread, I am very disappointed to my hash rate, lower than most here. Here below are my results:

AMD FX-8350 running in the lastest Xubuntu system, with ptsminer compiled from source: 90-95 c/m.

I just got AMD FX-9590, tested in Win 8; tried ptsminer 0.7 and 0.5; 0.7 gives bad results: initially 110 c/m then slowly stablized at 70 c/m, while 0.5 gives about 110 c/m.

All hash rate are lower than here, so I am wondering whether these values are normal for AMD, then AMD worse than i7? or maybe I can try something to increase the rate?

Thank you for your help!

Aren't early shares of PTS supposed to yield memorycoin?

Uhm this pool does not store Protoshares and auto pays your shares at a threshold of 0.2 PTS.

...

You dont want to ask xolo to release the <0.2 PTS balances as MMC?

...

0.2 PTS yield 0.02 MMC.

...

0.02 MMC = 0.01 USD = 0.01 EUR = 0.00001 BTC = 0.00029 LTC.

...

I have a better idea: Get up to 2 free MMC here: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2065.0

I don't want Memorycoins instead of PTS. 

My understanding was that blocks of PTS 32000 and under "came with" Memorycoin when Memorycoin was released.

It is part of the incentive to mine PTS.

How to get MemoryCoins from your Protoshares wallet is only possible when you have direct access to the wallet.dat file. Mining with beeeeer pool does not give you your own wallet (file), therefore it's not possible.

But you can get your MemoryCoins as follows:

Backup your Protoshares wallet.dat file (either by the 'backupwallet' command in Debug window of the Qt-Wallet, or by simply copying the wallet.dat to another location on your filesystem. Then install the MemoryCoin wallet program on your local computer but do not yet start it. I usually use the Linux wallet programs where you have to copy the Protoshares wallet.dat (the copy only of course) in the ~/memorycoin subdirectory. On Windows it should be somewhere under C:\User\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\MemoryCoin - you have to create the MemoryCoin subdirectory and also note that the AppData directory is a hidden one on Windows which will only become visibile when changing the display options for Windows Explorer.

After having copied the wallet.dat to the correct location you can startup the MemoryCoin wallet and magically it will produce 10% MemoryCoin out of your Protoshares balance. Please also note that only the balance from sometime in December 2013 will taken into account, therefore you must use the wallet.dat from the Protoshares wallet software you used this time - even when you transferred those PTS to another account meanwhile.

Hope this helps to clarify how Protoshares and getting MemoryCoins from PTS is working. I tested this procedure already and I've got my share of MMC this way.

Hi,

sorry, btc2084, if i've overlooked your previous post.

i haven't looked into memorycoins atm.

the pool of course owns a protoshares wallet that should be convertable into a memorycoin wallet. but the pool "only" holds the unpaid payouts from the miners caused by the payout barrier, which is something like 250 PTS in total, thanks to the high demand of a very low payout barrier <-- sorry, i had to mention this :)

so we've like 25 MMC (just a guess, as this has to be checked for block #32000)

and we would have to find a way to convert everything (on a fair basis) for the several hundreds of payout address on the pool.

so my impression at the moment: it's a low priority issue
sorry, if this is not really statisfying.

@pooh20240:
you'll have to wait until the first round, you've participated in, ends (aka block has been found), which already happened now :)
so i guess you've seen it

@joelao95:
unfortunately yes, what i've seen so far is that Intel's CPUs are more efficient & faster than AMD's CPUs.

that few MMC would make a good donation for providing a pool by xolokram

@xolokram are there any known steps i could do to reduce the reject rate?

also for fellow miners i did notice one thing:

i have 4 core cpu and 4 gig mem and I get better results if I fire up more threads @ 512M (say like 7 gives 3,5GB) than only four (given 4 threads on cpu)

conlusion: use more threads to fill up unused memory

waiting for your thoughts on that =)

Signed.

waiting for your thoughts on that =)

That's intended. The more CPU power you put into mining, the higher the output. Configuring more RAM per CPU core only gives an advantage if you have very fast RAM in your machine. Testing this out is up to you. Anyway the difference is only very small. The big difference is the number of cores like you correctly stated already.

But the quad multicore cpu can handle more threads without any problem. My thought was not to provide more ram per thread, instead fire up more threads to fill up unused memory.

That's indeed interesting. One should think that 4 threads on a 4 core cpu is 100% load and cannot be more increased.

Is there is significant difference? How much collisions/minute is the difference (4 threads / 7 threads)?

I had the same problem with BTER, they're very sloooooow sometimes. It took a few hours then it was displayed and received by BTER. I even thought about scam, but they seem only to be verrrrrrry slow sometimes.

Give it some time and it will be received. Thumbs up.

they are probably using hundreds of servers.
if you wanna use a different pool, go on. i won't force or beg you to use my pool

yup, i experienced the same. bter seems to have some delay for their processing.

I just don't understand what's wrong with configuration and how comes they got such good performance as 100 times or more than mine.

Do we have a split in the coin chain? Just asking... when there is such a big pool running?

Maybe the pool has incredible unluck a last few days. I send 24000 cpm to the pool for one day and only 4 blocks were found. The difficulty is not rising the last few days too. One of the reason is because of ypool.net has grown too big for PTS.

cudapts working well for me, my first cuda app on my new card, nice way to test

GTX 660, 485 c/m with ptsminer running 330 c/m on 15 of 16 cores (dual socket xeon) as well

I think i need to go to 2 instances and numactl them for the cpu miner and squeeze a bit more out , as my 8 core xeon gets 220

Thanks to xolo for the pool and dave for cudapts  :D

I know that the difficulty explodes since 07-01 (maybe because of the new GPU miner). I just test your pool for one day so it's not easy to make some judgements too. I just share my opinion :). Since rpoot.net has more workers than beeer.org, I just have the impression that rpool.net is bigger, but they only find 5 blocks/day. So your pool is still more efficient.
Btw how could I see the total cpm of the pool ?

Thanks.

Sadly, no. Your processor does not support SSE4 but SS4a.

SSE4a: http://www.cpu-world.com/Glossary/S/SSE4a.html
SSE4: http://www.cpu-world.com/Glossary/S/SSE4.html

It looks like SSE4a was a 5-instruction set precursor to SSE4 by AMD ahead of Intels 54-instruction set. You'll have to run with sphlib.

is it somehow possible to modify the miner source to assign 768M of memory per thread?

i have searched through the code and found a snippet:
Code: [Select]
        void mineloop_start() {
                switch (COLLISION_TABLE_BITS) {
                        case 20: mineloop<(1<<20),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-20))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 21: mineloop<(1<<21),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-21))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 22: mineloop<(1<<22),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-22))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 23: mineloop<(1<<23),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-23))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 24: mineloop<(1<<24),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-24))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 25: mineloop<(1<<25),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-25))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 26: mineloop<(1<<26),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-26))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 27: mineloop<(1<<27),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-27))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 28: mineloop<(1<<28),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-28))),shamode>(); break;
                        case 29: mineloop<(1<<29),(0xFFFFFFFF<<(32-(32-29))),shamode>(); break;

                        default: break;

        }

I am adapting my version of ptsminer to work with opencl. I can't get the same performance as cudapts yet (on an amazon g2.2xlarge his version gets 550 cpm and mine gets 290 cpm, so lots of room to improve). But you are welcome to try it (on AMD GPUs, for example, where there's no CUDA), and of course, suggest improvements.

M7j version of yam miner available. It supports fast CPU mining for PTS, MMC, more mining pools and protocols.

To mine MemoryCoin with yam M7j use provided miner config template named yam-mmc.cfg as a base, check readme.txt for more details.
yam M7j optimised for mining MMC on CPUs with AES-NI support and has 5 different algo variations for HT, non-HT and GPU friendly setups.

yam M7j miner now supports PTS mining at beeeeer and includes fix for Win2003 and other older 64bit systems. Check readme.txt for details.

Yup, I was about to tell you that... You need to install some OpenCL SDK. AFAIK, you can use NVidia SDK when compiling, since the work is done by the driver, and the protocols are all standard. But I never tried it.

But you are welcome to try it (on AMD GPUs, for example, where there's no CUDA), and of course, suggest improvements.

Got 480 CPM on amazon g2.2xlarge. Still not as good as cudapts, but getting close!

Edit: After researching it, looks like I need the AMD App SDK. Downloading/installing..

No joy. :(

did you try the amd-opencl-dev package (apt-get install amd-opencl-dev)?
Just tried it now and sadly no joy. Installed fine but same errors.

Yup, I was about to tell you that... You need to install some OpenCL SDK. AFAIK, you can use NVidia SDK when compiling, since the work is done by the driver, and the protocols are all standard. But I never tried it.
I installed the AMD APP SDK but again, same set of errors.. Any other pointers? Would love to get your code running.

It's currently about 750-780.  480 is pretty good from OpenCL on Nvidia.

you need to add the SDK to the library path. try running something like:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/path/to/SDK/lib

where "/path/to/SDK/lib" is the place where the SDK installed the libOpenCL.so file. On NVidia its

/usr/local/cuda/lib/x86_64/

not sure where AMD installs it.

Code: [Select]

Ok, first error is easy and should be fixed on the repository. AMD SDK does not like "#pragma unroll (8)" directive. Just change all occurrences of this to just "#pragma unroll" in file opencl/OpenCLMomentumV4.cl

I reinstalled the AMD drivers from their website directly instead of the Debian repos.

Your precompiled binary says:

Quote
libboost_system.so.1.48.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm running Debian 7 so I currently have 1.49.0 installed, which would explain the binary not running. I'm still at a loss about the compiled miner, though..

If you look through this thread you'll notice that plenty of people have noticed that.

beer has good and bad days, like any pool. Just because we are slow in finding a block does not mean you get paid less. You get a share equal to the work you put in just like any other pool.



It could be thought like this:
- It takes 20 men (or women) to build a car and sell it for $20,000. Each man (or woman) gets paid $1,000 for their work. It takes 10 days to build this car and sell it.
- It takes 10 men (or women) to build a car and sell it for $20,000. Each man (or woman) gets paid $2,000 for their work, but now it takes 20 days to built the car and sell it because there are less people working on it.

In the first scenario, the men (or women) would each get $100 a day (or that equivalent) - $1,000 / 10 = $100.
In the second scenario, the men (or women) would also each get $100 a day (or that equivalent) - $2,000 / 20 = $100.



It takes longer to find a block than the larger pools because we don't have as many miners. But having less miners pays better per block because we don't have to share out the block reward to as many other miners as the big pools.

I went to see other pools and are in the same way seems.
I know that. But it is not just happening in beeeeer. The others are too slow ...

What I found odd was that even before he had more PTS per block and it is falling faster.

A certain pool *cough*ypool*cough* is dominating the PTS pools with it's absurd amount of miners. All the smaller pools are suffering because of it and with the advent of GPU mining, it just means they maintain their stronghold. Pools like rpool and 1gh are in the same boat as they have similar miner numbers as beer.

And yes you are correct - the only way to resolve this is to drink more beer... :)

I've removed the AMD card for now as I'm putting another nVidia in, but I will test again later tonight for you.

AMD Radeon HD6870, Debian 7, 4GB total RAM, Intel Core2Quad Q9550.

I did some new adjustments to the code. Now you can invoke the different versions of the algorithm from the command line by using: "-a gpuv2", "-a gpuv3" or "-a gpuv4".

gpuv2 is the less memory intensive. Try it with a small -m param ("-m 25" should do, my geforce 6400 accepts up to "-m 26").

Are you running 32 or 64 bit OS? My GeForce is on a 32bit ubuntu 12.04, and is the only GPU that complains about memory. I'm thinking maybe it's a memory addressing problem. Will try to instal a 64 bit OS there tonight.
