Title: AMD OpenCL Momentum miner
Post by: NaN on January 26, 2014, 08:41:40 pm
This is a OpenCL Momentum miner for AMD GPUs. The performance is 6700+ c/m on a R9 [email protected], so that this seems to be the fastest released miner. Binaries are available for Windows and Linux.

NEW: First version of JSON-RPC Bitcredit solo miner: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ycqnadnjp8rhsp0/AADKNyWsn0oShLPtNGCBliWba?dl=0

DOWNLOAD v2.1: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0ijulsq12j3vxrb/AADkD4Snxy_AJD5oXTzZr1J_a?dl=0 This version has multi-pool support and pool-fallback, i.e. it connects to the next pool in a user specified list, if there is no connection to the current pool. Every 10 minutes it is checked whether a pool with higher priority is online again. Download and unpack the miner into a folder. Depending on the version of your installed Catalyst driver, copy the gpuhash_* files in the suitable subfolder into the binaries folder.  I recommend Catalyst 14.9 or newer for clpts, but Catalyst 14.12 seems to be slower than Catalyst 14.9. Catalyst 14.6 and 14.7 should work with the binaries for Catalyst 14.9.
DOWNLOAD v1.3: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/17dss1hon0338q6/AAAUUSvog-SsX_KDWJjAukzLa?dl=0

UPDATE 18: Version v2.1 of the miner is released and here is list of some changes:

known issues: The miner does not run if the installed Catalyst driver is too old or the wrong binaries are used. Some configurations crash during startup and the issue depends on the thread counts. The 32-bit Windows executable does not show this behaviour and works on 64-bit Windows. Otherwise, you might run several instances of the miner. The miner is not optimized to run on 5000 and 6000 series GPUs and needs at least ~900 MB free GPU memory per thread.

NOTE 1: When you post errors I appreciate some information about the operating system (Windows or Linux / 32bit or 64bit is sufficient) and the used Catalyst driver. Furthermore you should suppress the section between the stars of the output of the miner excluding the miner version (at the moment it hasn't any relevance but it will become important in the future). The Linux version is much faster than the Windows version on R9 290(X), which seems to be a driver issue.

NOTE 2: Please make sure that you are not using an outdated Catalyst version and read the README.


I would be grateful for donations to speed up the development of a version for Nvidia GPUs:

It works on the 290X Hawaii GPU but not the Pitcairn 270X.

yes. the kernels seem to be a little bit too short, so there is some additional latency, which can be hidden by additional instances

Fired up two instances, getting 2064c/m on first instance and 1260 on 2nd.

Post by: NaN on January 26, 2014, 10:02:26 pm
well, wait a few minutes so that the values can stabilize. the program averages over all collisions. normally both instances will get the same average so i would take your lowest value times 2 for a first guess when running two instances.

yeap first instance is down to 1727 while second is at 1277 solid.

i have no plan to support ypool.net (it's a good pool, but it became too large). i will support other pools/protocols as soon as there are enough fees or donations. but i think you can compare miners by comparing c/m after a few hours of runtime. the actual income is given by the pool's luck and payout policy.

well, it seems that you are trying to use your integrated graphics. this will not be very fast if it would work.
my compiler outputs binaries for BeaverCreek so at least compiling has to work for you. i guess this is a driver bug. in my opinion  drivers for APUs have a lot more bugs than the desktop drivers. which version of fglrx are you using?

I'm working on a windows version and it will be released as soon as my toolchain for windows binaries works (likely today or tomorrow).
The miner can only connect to beeeeer.org at the moment but i plan to add additional pools.
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: duckproto on January 28, 2014, 12:44:27 am
UPDATE 4: Windows binaries are released and the README is updated with some help. The 32bit-Windows binaries are not testet yet; thus feedback is appreciated. A bug for 5000 and 6000 series GPUs is fixed but the miner is still not optimized for those cards[/quote]

can't run two instances in windows - first instance gets 'cannot connect to server' when second instance starts.  unlike linux version, this can run both "0 1" cards @ 3800c/m using both cards.  can't run one instance as you get this eventually http://i.imgur.com/otoWQaJ.gif (http://i.imgur.com/otoWQaJ.gif)

If it is Linux, this could indicate that there is no running Xserver. please always provide some info about the used catalyst driver and the operating system (32bit windows / 64bit windows / 64bit-linux)

In your case i think that the miner tries to get the devices of the intel opencl platform and perhaps fails because the intel opencl implementation does not support any of your devices (-1 means CL_DEVICE_NOT_FOUND). I need more information to decide that.

I had the same error I removed the Intel OpenCL SDK on one system, on the other in device manager show hidden devices and remove driver for Intel 4600 video driver.

You can confirm that the Intel OpenCL driver is installed by running cgminer -n

That solved my issue.

Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: NaN on January 28, 2014, 03:30:54 am
Thanks for the feedback. I think that I simply remove the queries for other platforms. This would solve the issue, but in the long-term I rather want to support all vendors. Not exiting the miner on CL_DEVICE_NOT_FOUND would lead to some funny stuff with AMD GPUs on linux....

nvidia support will follow as soon as I have any devices on which I can do tests.

No, that is because of bad pool luck while you were mining in windows. beeeeer.org is a small pool with only a few generated blocks per day (mostly less than 10), but is has low fees (2.5%). Your windows output seems normal.

the mess on the startup are the messages of the compiler. i can suppress those messages but it makes debugging harder.

sometimes when computer startup, it need time to re-acquire IP from DHCP server, but if miner startup at this time, it will crash. It's better to try to reconnect after a while, instead of crash.

wow, that sounds bad. is your connection ok? Linux or Windows?

Win7 64bit, maybe connection not stable, like last issue, no one can gurrant connection 100% stable, it's better to handle it more robust.

second, I have 2 280x, it can't start 2 card in one instance, must run 2 instance
did you try to run the miner with <name of executable> <your address> 0 1?
if i use  Miner address 0 1, both cards not work. I must use Miner address 0, and Miner address 1 , seperately.

congrats to your mighty miner!
the hashrate is really great on 3 x 290X: 2504 cpm + 2529 cpm + 2549 cpm with ~ 2-%-rejects / 1075gpu+1250mem
Edit: the rejects are down to ~0.7 %

the two instances-solution is in my eyes not so well, because after a time the hashing settles down on the 2 instances - but the rejects go high on the second instance to ~ 8 %

oh... i tested the new software on my HD6990 - only ~800 cpm compared to the higher rate at pts.1gh.com ~1280 cpm / on one GPU of the card

please contact the pts-mining-pool to discuss a possible cooperation - http://pts.1gh.com
for your next step with joining other (smaller) pools with your miner

ok, thanks. this is a little bit strange... i need to think about it.
@duckproto: the 270X has 4GB RAM, or? with 2GB two instances should not work

both the 290 and 270 have 4GB each.

http://i.imgur.com/ykrZRpL.png (http://i.imgur.com/ykrZRpL.png)

I was shocked to see there are some R9 270X versions with 4GB of memory... all this time I've only ever seen the 2GB versions... I would not have searched that out without noticing what you were doing... I shall now go palm slap my face.

so if 1 instance takes 1200MB, two takes 2400MB, are you able to run three for 3600MB on your 4GB cards? and still increase results?

i know that the kernels aren't fast on 5000 and 6000 series gpu cards. the used memory access pattern makes no sense for these gpus. the results are on one gpu of the card, or?

i haven't tried this yet. but i do not believe this will result in any gains. running 2 instances is a possibility to increase cpm for some users until the kernels are further opimized

I would love to see this for 1GH, the paranoid side of me says no to Ypool until other pools level things out heh...

so far this seems to be running well, only encountered a problem when I hit a stale share after several hours, looks like the program froze, or maybe the screen stopped outputting, not really sure as I did the close window open new window fix... I should have captured the screen and checked with GPU-Z if things were still running...

it seems that your system has an intel opencl driver installed because it says there are two opencl platforms... perhaps that is the same problem other people encountered and you should try their workaround. that shouldn't be a bug of my miner if the workaround works.

UPDATE which catalyst version is installed on your system?
perhaps windows loads the intel opencl dynamic library instead of the AMD library. Maybe those libraries aren't compatible even for opencl 1.1 or 1.2.

its been running for several hours... but now I seem to be running into a new problem... when it comes time to mine for the author, it seems to do that just fine for the 35 seconds... but when it comes time to switch back to mining for the user, it seems to be having trouble trying to get back to working...

in picture one you can see its going back to mining for user for 30min... at first it seems to be working but then suddenly dies... and in picture two you can see the problem continues for quite some time and it was not improving, so I finally killed it, restarted it, and its working without an issue again... this is the same problem I ran into before... it seems to have an issue switching between the mining for author and mining for user again...

my gpu's seem to be working at 99% as normal, but you can see the shares per minute absolutely drop down to nothing... and this goes on for quite some time, I simply could only take so many pictures in scroll back heh...

@Darkbane: This is really strange. the miner even recognizes a dead tcp connection ("watchdog timer triggered") and tries to reconnect but no block arrives from the server. after that a corrupted block is received. the sharetarged should be 03ffff....ffffbeafde4d. I guess this is related to Windows 8.1. Do you have access to Windows 7 (this works) or Windows 8?
EDIT other users with Win7 also report this problem. I take a look at it. The linux version works without problems for me.

Yeah the weird part is, clearly its worked many many times since I have run this for almost 8 hours, but several times its done this exact same thing... I mean I'm assuming its worked many times, I think it said every 30-60min it will mine for the author? so its worked 20-40 times but every so often randomly it just hangs... the weird part is its still pegging the video card at 99% even though its just trying to reconnect?

so Ubuntu is good? I've been thinking about taking a stab at it on a bootable usb drive, but I just don't know an ubuntu for dummies guide that really teaches me what things mean along the way, versus "type this"...

I understand this is v0.1 so I'm certain you've got pages of things you plan to do already heh... it's just impressive the performance gain over other miners with the same GPU... being able to leave it unattended for days would put it well beyond the others.

I updated the miner to version 0.1.1, which should fix with the "doing no work" bug in Windows.

@darkbane: the miner used a corrupted block with a wrong share target. therefore it is very likely that the miner will find zero shares in a reasonable time because it has a very difficult share target. it looked like as some buffers got corrupted. most likely windows missed some resources because i used many asynchronous events but v0.1.1 implements better code.

Okay got it up and humming along... saw the v0.1.1 in the header, I appreciate that!

I'll check back on it in a few hours and let it run overnight just to keep pressing it.

I do not know to use LINUX, has been using WIN7 64. I do not know why, after 13.1 AMD drivers do not support more than 400 cards, including 270 270X drivers are needed in 13.1 in 7870 to support the mandatory installation of 6 cards. You see it can support 13.1 driver?

It retry repeatedly, restart miner can work again


I updated the miner to version 0.1.1, which should fix with the "doing no work" bug in Windows.

@darkbane: the miner used a corrupted block with a wrong share target. therefore it is very likely that the miner will find zero shares in a reasonable time because it has a very difficult share target. it looked like as some buffers got corrupted. most likely windows missed some resources because i used many asynchronous events but v0.1.1 implements better code.

This means that the miner isn't able to connect to the server. That's a different problem. It could be a boost related problem, i.e. boost::asio::connect somehow fails. Did your IP change before that happens? I'm trying to fix it
UPDATE newly released version v0.1.2 should fix it.

Plus 1 for 1Gh version.  With other PTS miners my 7990 did 2000 cpm which is not bad, almost as good as a 6990.  With your miner it does 3500 cpm with only 8% more power usage - that's pretty awesome coding.

I'm lucky enough to have gotten a CP1500PFCLCD when it came out, the digital display makes it real nice to let a system warm up to get a base reading, and then one by one you can add the cards or start using them, there will always be that few percent margin of error from the system but it's pretty darn close once you wait for temperature and fan speed to settle...

UPDATE 10: version v0.2 of the miner is released, which supports the pool on ypool.net. If you want to connect to beeeeer.org you should use v.0.1.2. The miner does NOT support the 1GH-pool yet because the pool does not implement the latest xpt-protocol but 1GH-pool support is still planned. EDIT There was a typo in the README. The usage of v0.2 is <exe-name> -u <username>.<worker> -p <pass> -t <GPU DeviceID list>

It sounds like your 290x is throttling. It may be overheating and doing so to prevent damage.

crazy idea, but is it possible your 290x is working so quick, you're simply running out of work to do... which might explain why it has a burst and then backs down as the work is done... on other coins I've been able to increase packet difficulty in the pools, but I've never seen any options in any of these pts pools to increase or decrease difficulty... could it be as simple as you ran out of work for that brief moment heh... I mean none of the miners seem to take full advantage of the memory cards have (it just seems to be a minimum required to start), in other miners we're able to set the threads and intensity to fine tune that sort of thing... some of the pts cpu miners seem to have the ability to increase memory use which in turn boosts performance a little... we could just be leaving a lot on the table in this early stage of gpu mining for it?

My GPU miner uses a completely different algorithm than CPU miners and more memory is not a big advantage. The work for the GPU is produced locally until a new block comes in. Therefore the GPU should never idle. But the current kernels are executed in less than 0.05s or even faster, so there should be some noticeable CPU overhead. Additionally, the current kernels aren't 100% optimized so that the GPU is not doing any significant work for about 0.05s per round. This explains the low power usage compared to scrypt miners. Furthermore, the r9 290(X) has a different memory interface than the other GPUs. This might explain why it is better to use two threads per GPU on these GPUs.

it is quite amazing how much higher the cpm rate is with your work compared to other miners... and with less power! (less power is my favorite part, the fan noise is a blessing, I've actually got mine down to 30% now) would more difficult work (or larger blocks, not sure what to call it really) benefit the program or does it all end up being relatively the same with the method being used?

EDIT... sound is also a huge reason why I use the CORSAIR AX760 (the non-i version)... the fan doesn't even spin up until well after 50% load... so when I use these R9 270 cards, it never spins up in hybrid mode...

nan it is possible to run 2 threads on 1 GPU?? haity 280x??
how i can test from command line?
thanks!!!

My experience with this:
i made a batch-file ".bat" on W7-64 - i started this 2 times on my R9 290X - but the summed hashrate of the two threads was ~5% lower compared to one running thread per gpu

You can try the command line parameter -t 0,0 which will spawn two threads on the first gpu. but i guess this won't be faster on a 280X than a single thread per gpu. but feel free to test

so we roughly know... using NaN's pts miner...

R9 270   = about 100 watt usage 1000 cpm
R9 270X = about 110 watt usage 1100 cpm
R9 280X = about 150 watt usage 1800 cpm
R9 290X = about 200 watt usage 2500 cpm

your results will vary as people change engine/memory speeds, as well as different manufacturers having different core settings with the cards they ship... your results will vary...

(edited to add the 280X)

Hi just want you to know that you have the fastest PTS miner .  Just imagine , initially i have 7970 running at 950 cpm . But upon upgrading my catalyst driver to latest version , the rate shoots up almost twice as fast at 1760 cpm. Thank you hope you can develop merge miner (with memorycoin)  as well :)

Try updating your AMD driver, that seems to be helping most people who run into that issue... I'm running R9 270 and R9 270X together using v0.1.2 with the AMD 13.251.0.0 (12/6/2013 version) and have been running solid for 48 hours now... on windows 8 64bit for me...

Well the way I do it is with a digital display on my UPS device... I start the system with no cards, get a base wattage, then I add 1 card and start using it, check the wattage... then I repeat this with 2 3 4 cards... and check to make sure the increase in-between each card is relatively the same...

alternatively if you don't want to rip your rig apart... start it up without mining... you'll get your base while the cards are in low power mode since they aren't being used... then start mining with just 1 card, take a reading, then start mining with 2 cards, take a reading, then mine with all 3 cards and take a reading... then check the wattage between each one and you can get a relatively accurate idea what its using when mining... just be sure to wait until you reach maximum operating temperature so the fan is going as fast as its going to go... should be able to see a pattern between each card...

looking at your total wattage... looks like a fair guess would probably be around 150 watts each...

Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: plane501 on February 01, 2014, 07:13:58 am
I released a fast OpenCL PTS-miner for AMD GPUs. The performance is 2300+ c/m on a R9 [email protected] and about 1100c/m on a 7870, so that this seems to be the fastest released miner. Binaries are available for Windows and 64bit-Linux.
DOWNLOAD v0.1.2: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/d5qvec5kxlug1bm/FR3Y_78Eag connects to the beeeeer.org pool, which has 2.5% pool fees. The developer fees for this version are 7/367 ~ 1.9%.
DOWNLOAD v0.2: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1ioh00043hqbsbk/wTptW3dr22 connects to the ypool.net pool, which has 5% pool fees. The developer fees for this version are 2.5% to make smaller pools more attractive. The developer fees are automatically transferred by ypool.net to the developer so the user's miner does not need to reconnect to support the developer.

UPDATE 10: version v0.2 of the miner is released, which supports the pool on ypool.net. If you want to connect to beeeeer.org you should use v.0.1.2. The miner does NOT support the 1GH-pool yet because the pool does not implement the latest xpt-protocol but 1GH-pool support is still planned. EDIT There was a typo in the README. The usage of v0.2 is <exe-name> -u <username>.<worker> -p <pass> -t <GPU DeviceID list>

known issues: The miner does not run if the installed Catalyst driver is too old. Multi-GPU support works for most users but sometimes the miner won't work if there are different cards installed. Then you have to run an instance of the miner on each card. The miner is not optimized to run on 5000 and 6000 series GPUs and needs about 1.2GB free GPU RAM.

NOTE 1: When you post errors I appreciate some information about the operating system (Windows or Linux / 32bit or 64bit is sufficient) and the used Catalyst driver. Furthermore you should suppress the section between the stars of the output of the miner excluding the miner version (at the moment it hasn't any relevance but it will become important in the future).

NOTE 2: Please make sure that you are not using an outdated Catalyst version and read the README.

270X shows 99% GPU Load (930/1500) @ 50% Fan Speed but when I monitor the 290X I see 930 Core and Memory changes from 1500 to 300 every 10-15 seconds and the GPU load shows as 0% (while putting out 2300-2400c/m) - go figure.  The 290X shows between 90W and 143W.

Same problem here,my 290's memory frequency changes from 1500 to 300 every 10-15 seconds too while 7950 runs solid @1080/1550 :o

The miner simply switches the payout-addresses so shares are send 35s to my address on beeeeer.org and 30min to the user's address. The shares found during the first minute after startup are send to the user.

what is with your software for 1GH-pool - is there really a problem with their protocol?

why not combine the beeeeer-pool-code with the ypool-code - to have an extra-fee like you have on beeeeer-pool and the mining-protocol of ypool?

are all three cards actually being used... you have to tell the program which gpu's to use on the command line... example...

clpts_x86-64.exe yourptsaddressheresoyougetpaid 0 1 2

the 0 1 2 tells it to use three graphics cards

0 = gpu 1
1 = gpu 2
2 = gpu 3


HOWEVER... if your video card is only 1GB, it will not work from what I understand, you need 2GB... is only one of your cards 2GB?

The miner does not work well with just 1GB RAM. Under Linux it won't work at all and under Windows it is slower than cards with more than 1GB RAM but I guess 700 cpm vs. 930 cpm is not bad for 1GB RAM
EDIT: Indeed, 700 cpm with three cards is bad.

hi Nan, so I understand now. I won't use my 7850 to mine PTS, just use 270x to mine. And 700 cpm are my 3x 7850's speed....that's awful.

So you get 700 cpm TOTAL for all three 7850?

Have you tried running 3 instances, 1 for each GPU?

Are you overclocking?  And more to the point is Schwede65?  May be it is not a like comparison.  I get 780 cpm on a standard 7850.

you didn't ask me directly - yeah, i'm overclocking as hell - all what the card does with msi-afterburner - not the voltage at the card
the cards are running cooler with NaN's-miner then scrypt-mining - using less energy (~70 - 75 % compared to scrypt-mining)
so - why not overclocking these little tiny cards, when they stay around 60 °C with 75 % fan-speed?
that gives more mined PTS:)

Good overclock you have there, I have a couple 290X which I will try to get to run at 2700 cpm on air. It should be doable, but I foresee temps >70.

Thanks for this! I tested it overnight on 4x 280X (3x ASUS DC2T and 1x Gigabyte Windforce 3X).

Total CPM: 8195 with 0.62% rejects...beautiful!

The temps are good, ranging from 68-72c on 40% fan speed in a hot room. 75%  fan speed on the Gigabyte card because it has horrible cooling.

Stock clocks on all cards with the DC2T's @ 1118mV and Windforce 3X @ 1200mV because it's a bitch. Could probably squeeze out a few more CPM so I will experiment with different clock speeds when I have the time for it.


I too would like to see optimized kernels for other cards in the future, so maybe if enough people makes donations to the dev he will be able to get whatever GPU he should need for testing. What he earns from dev fee on the miner is nothing.

I really like the idea of increasing the fee on the ypool version of your miner, to encourage the use of smaller pools like beer. I honestly think increasing the fee even more would be a good idea and a good thing for the PTS network.

If the 2 versions of your miner were beer and 1gh, then that would be great! We need to spread the hash rate around.

Another suggestion is to be able to setup a backup pool, so the miner for example would switch to 1gh should beer go down.
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: Schwede65 on February 05, 2014, 12:20:32 am
yeah, possible back-up-pool would be a great thing for the future!

one position to realize is the point, that the share-/hashrate of beeeeer-pool nearly doubled from the day your miner is at the front - i know it could be more to secure the network - but we have to start and see where it goes!

Exactly. I think we should spread the word about GPU mining at beer (and 1gh). Especially to current scrypt miners, as mining PTS is actually more profitable than certain coins. And this is not considering the value of owning ProtoShares for the upcoming stuff!

Thus I've pointed a few rigs at PTS and the rest at DGB (DigiByte).
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: montecristo83 on February 05, 2014, 12:50:14 pm
So I decided to put 4 GPUs in the same rig instead of separating them (was using cases). Mashed together an open rig with some spare wood and started mining. I wanted to squeeze out a few more CPM so I decided to overclock all of the cards. Undervolting them was to follow after that.

Here is an album showing the progress: http://imgur.com/a/eoOoi

Final result after approx. 1 hour 30 min is 8494 CPM where 3/4 cards got successfully overclocked and undervoltaged. Temps are staying awesome at 62-68C.

On my gaming rig I have 1 Sapphire Dual-X OC 280X. At 1065/1500 and stock voltage it hits 2029 CPM stable. 72C in a case is absolutely nothing to complain about! Going to try and overclock it some more later on.

Thanks for your feedback. I also reduced the number of workgroups, perhaps this causes the performance regression on non R9 290(X) cards. I'm working on improving the performance of non R9 290(X) cards, too.
EDIT: Could someone test this? You have to take e.g. version 0.1.2 and have to overwrite gpuhash_gcn with the gpuhash_gcn-file of v0.1.3.

Does anybody knows, how to tweak performance to get closer to 1800 col/m as some users are reporting.

I released a new version with large performance improvements. The syntax of the command line options of v0.1.x has changed and one has to specify the device IDs like in v0.2.x (see README). Furthermore, the command line option -a was introduced to select an algorithm. I guess that -a 0 or -a 2 should be fastest on R9 290(X) and -a 1 or -a 3 should be best for non-R9 290(X) cards.

The unroll messages indicate that it is working. but you somehow used the wrong command line arguments. Could you post your command to launch the miner or your .bat-file (username and password may be masked)? But I do not think the miner will run on any 7770 card because it needs more than 1GB GPU RAM. No idea whether your cards have 2GB RAM...

i have this VGA

and even if it works slower than others, i get 460-470 c/m with algorithm 1

with clock GPU at 1180 MHz

i may say the new miner has improved 20-30 c/m but i'm not so sure

I released a new version with large performance improvements. The syntax of the command line options of v0.1.x has changed and one has to specify the device IDs like in v0.2.x (see README). Furthermore, the command line option -a was introduced to select an algorithm. I guess that -a 0 or -a 2 should be fastest on R9 290(X) and -a 1 or -a 3 should be best for non-R9 290(X) cards.

clpts v0.1.4 win 64bit
Windows 8.1 64bit
AMD driver 13.251.0.0
two R9 270 2GB (975mhz / 1400mhz stock)
two R9 270X 4GB (1100mhz / 1400mhz stock)

30min test for each (previous cpm was on v0.1.2)

4463 to 5590 (-a 0)
4463 to 5827 (-a 1) -- update: after 2 hours I am getting 5840, rejections increased to 1.26%
4463 to 5579 (-a 2)
4463 to 5750 (-a 3)

so looks like a solid 25% increase across the board, 30% for option 1 on the R9 270 series cards works best as mentioned... now that I've done the 30min test for each option... I'll burn in for a couple hours on option 1 and check back in a couple hours...

do you think it would be a fair test if I ran 4 copies of clpts at the same time, one on each card? with each option? (thinking I could try all 4 options at once for several hours at the same time) or is it better to run one instance and check hours later to get a real read of the program? I'm not sure how its internals function if it would make any difference...

I did notice a roughly 20 watt increase over 4 cards, seems to be using slightly more memory on the cards.

You have to type -t 0,1,2,3,4,5. Perhaps I shall introduce something like -t 0-5 in the next release...

the readme file seems pretty straight forward, maybe see how well people of other languages interpret the examples clearly or not, I know sometimes things translate weird to me but are basic to those who speak it... but showing the whole command line seems to give enough to guess at to make things work. I always appreciate less options (when it comes to two ways to do the same one thing), means less things I must try to get it right.

To those using the new versions (where we just got a 25% or better boost for most it seems)... the miner was already leaps ahead of others, and this rockets it even further... I think it would be a nice gesture to donate an entire day or large portion to him for his efforts...

I suggest we have a mine for NaN day...

please message him for the best address to donate to if you do, as I just did 1.516 to him, he should update the readme and miner screen, just a friendly reminder here for him to update those heh ;)

Hello

 is it normal ? Gigabyte R9 280X X4 get 10000-11000col/M for ver 0.2.2

Thank you

Figured I'd register to share my experience with 7850, heads up to the dev if anything :)

1.2 is running @ ~870 c/m sometimes up to 900

1.4 is maxing out at 390

Thanks for a cool piece of software !

Ok, going to eat my hat here. It's now up to 1080 c/m. Though it did take about 2 hours to "accelerate".

I can't thank you enough NaN for the incredible miner + revisions!
My current rig has 4 x MSI R9 290, running Windows 8.1 and I'm
currently seeing 11821 c/m (gpu @ 1100 MHz, mem @ 1250 MHz,
power limit @ -15%). All my 290's run at 68C to 71C with fan @ 80%.

Now the above numbers are with just a single GPU thread. When I open
another cmd window and fire up the same exact clpts as the first window
it works, though at a little less than half of the first thread. I'm currently
seeing 10400 c/m in the first thread and 4600 c/m in the second thread.

I decided to kill both threads and start them at the same time and now I
can see that both are running the same c/m which together equal the same
c/m speed as a single thread. I was guessing (hoping) that utilizing the extra
memory on the gpus would help (via more threads) but it doesn't. Just want
to throw that out and ask others to not be too harsh on me... I'm new to this
mining thing :-)

Again NaN, I can't thank you enough!!!

That's a missing library search path. execute the following command: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH. After that start the miner.
EDIT: Could you use the address Pk3mHjZrW3HGmx5jMNaN1GhXT2WgXHjRCz if you wanna mine for me?

I am getting 6830 col/m on 5x Sapphire 7950 with stock settings. That is ~1370 col/m. I have Celeron with 4Gb Ram.

Does anybody knows, how to tweak performance to get closer to 1800 col/m as some users are reporting.

I am using Ubuntu 13.1 with the latest drivers and miner v0.1.3.
Please use v0.1.2 until the next version is released. This should be fastest on your GPU. I'm working on an update with huge performance gains.

v. 0.1.2 with some tweaks I managed to squeeze out 7250 col /m
v. 0.1.4 I am  getting 9300col/m whoa

Slightly decreasing memory clock and increasing engine clock, using  algorithm 1, I managed to increase speed to 10500. Whooha!

R9 R290, Catalyst 13.12, Powertune +20%, [email protected] and [email protected] with Linux-v0.1.4 running -a 0, two threads per GPU and no other load. So far, no one was able to reproduce this in Windows but it should be possible because even a 280X easily hits more than 2700cpm. Still wondering because yesterday a user with 2 R9 290X reported only about 6100 cpm.
Can I ask what you are using a version of the LINUX it?
I am using UBUNTU DESKTOP version
Only recognizes a GPU, only 2300C / M ,with 3800C/M so long way
Will there under LINUX how to modify the GPU CLOCK, MEM CLOCK, GPU fans

well thats interesting, decreasing memory mhz actually was a benefit? what were your stock settings and what did you adjust to? wondering if there is a magical percentage point between the two like when mining some other coins... usually I end up cranking the memory to max and adjusting engine after that...

I tested on Gentoo. The command line tool to modify frequencies is aticonfig, which should work after enabling AMD Overdrive (see --help). How many GPUs do you have? For one GPU I would use -t 0,0 and for two -t 0,0,1,1 etc.

Post by: crazycoin on February 10, 2014, 12:05:00 pm
Sorry for the confusion. It seems that I got benefit by increasing engine clock. Reducing memory clock did not increase col/m. But it has slightly reduced temp. As I don't have watt meter, I was a bit conservative with setting.
Main drivers of increased speed are algorithm and engine clock.

My card:
270x 1450   -a 1
280x 2450   -a 1
290 2600?   -a 1(-a others is slower)

all cards not overclocked,seems 290 too low, is there some special setting need for 290?

I released a new version with large performance improvements. The syntax of the command line options of v0.1.x has changed and one has to specify the device IDs like in v0.2.x (see README). Furthermore, the command line option -a was introduced to select an algorithm. I guess that -a 0 or -a 2 should be fastest on R9 290(X) and -a 1 or -a 3 should be best for non-R9 290(X) cards.

Sometime within the next couple days I'm going to give Gentoo (or another distro) a try and see if I get any performance improvements.

Currently - 290X (1150Mhz/1375Mhz) - ~3200 cpm on Win7.64

i have a question.

how old is "too old" for the drivers. 12.8 too old?

also, my cards are:

rig1:
7950
5970
12.8 drivers
win7 x64

rig2:
7870
12.8 drivers
win7 x64

rig3:
270x
14.1 drivers
win7 x64

will this miner work with all 3 setups?

I fear that you have to try it yourself. catalyst 12.4 is too old. Could you give a feedback whether catalyst 12.8 works?

If I am correct this should be the fglrx driver of Catalyst 12.9. This is too old

little off topic... just wanted to say I sold my first PTS today... I feel kinda giddy... tee-hee...

was quite a bit of a waiting process though, transactions sure weren't fast at the exchange, I got to 50 confirmations before they even recognized it almost 3 hours later, and thats with a transactions fee... usually it takes me under 10min when I send PTS to an individual and they confirm it... is this the typical exchange experience? (cryptsy - I've been reading horror stories)

bter.com worked well until a few days ago when they disabled PTS deposit without any notice. No idea whether I can access my coins in the near future... Now I'm using cryptsy and your donation arrived but I checked this the first time a few hours after your donation. One of my friends is using cryptsy since two month without issues. Anyhow you should be careful with any exchange and the fuckup at mt. gox is a good example. Don't risk too much.

yeah I'm terrified to send a large amount and do a big cash out... thats why I did a 1 coin test... but I always fear when I do the real move thats when it won't work after all I have read... if only there was a return policy with transferring coins... I'm not sure what is the bigger risk... buying mining equipment, or transferring to an exchange...

Wow that took forever, damn kernel issues followed with power issues....

Anyway, here are my Ubuntu results. R9 290X (1040/1250)

GPU 1 - [STATS] 2014-Feb-11 00:27:11 | 4153.40 c/m | 16.60 sh/m | VL: 119 (100.00%), RJ: 0 (0.00%), ST: 0 (0.00%)

Decided to run one command line on each GPU with 2 threads each just to measure individual performance. I'll run  -t 0,0,1,1 next.

This is a 1000cpm change over my Win7.64 Mining rig with the same specs.

Thanks a lot NaN!!

Interestingly, I used-t 0 is the speed of CPM 2380, with the-t 0,0 is CPM 2980, 7970 single card default frequency.

used -t 0 a 1 cpm 2380
used -t 0,0 a1 cpm 2920
used -t 0,0,0 a1 cpm 300

7970 925/1250 win7 64bit singe.

But this will set the speed multi-card declined 4 280x set-t 0,0,1,1 10200 from 11400 down to why there is a single card and multi-card upgrade will fall?

To run the miner on all four cards you have to use -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3. additionally you could add -a 1, which should be faster than -a 0 (which are the defaults) on  7970. There is no option "a".

Yes, I used the -a 1 command, but in a multi-card rate declines and this is what I can not understand, my single cards rose to 7970 from 2380 to 2920 CPM, why it would fall under the multi-card

Hi,

This app is really nice but i have a problem on one computer. With the same drivers as every other, i have less cpm that on other. Tested on a fresh install on another part of my hard drive, it's working full power. The problem is on my personal install and don't want to format everyting. I'm running ubuntu 13.10.
I have try to clean, purge the drivers and reinstall but still less cpm that on a fresh install.

Do you have an idea what file i should check to have full cpm power like on a fresh install ?

I know the problem, the next single card is behind the 7970 fix release, other multi-card is still using the original 2.2 version, re-download the new version of the normal speed of 4 280x at 14000 CPM .WIN7 64

I am a bit confused over the correct scrypt to use.

Can you please show yours?

I am using 3 280X cards running @ 1150/1500 and I get 7880 cpm in a single screen. When I open a second thread I get 2330 cpm on that thread and the first thread slowly goes lower and lower untill it goes under the 7880 total cpm together. Should I use the -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 command? And also add -a 1 or not at all?

Still playing with running 2 threads under Win8.1x64 w/R9 290's.
While I have noticed that -a 1 provides the best results on my gpu's,
so far running -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3 hasn't shown much more c/m's BUT
it has shown a huge increase in CPU usage. Using a single thread per
GPU my CPU would sit around 2% utilization, however when running
two threads per GPU my CPU is now at 63% utilization. I suspect that
clpts is having internal conflicts when running 2 threads under Win8.1x64.
Just reporting findings to help the community out. MANY thanks NaN for
the awesome software (again)!

Still playing with running 2 threads under Win8.1x64 w/R9 290's.
While I have noticed that -a 1 provides the best results on my gpu's,
so far running -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3 hasn't shown much more c/m's BUT
it has shown a huge increase in CPU usage. Using a single thread per
GPU my CPU would sit around 2% utilization, however when running
two threads per GPU my CPU is now at 63% utilization. I suspect that
clpts is having internal conflicts when running 2 threads under Win8.1x64.
Just reporting findings to help the community out. MANY thanks NaN for
the awesome software (again)!

I had the same CPU leap under windows 8.1 64bit as well... I just thought it was my crummy 270X cards, but now that you mention its a problem for the 290X there might be something to this... normally I am under 1% cpu usage for clpts, but when I launch a second copy on the same cards, I leap to 40% cpu usage split between the two instances...

Does anyone have a link to a good ubuntu install with directions for a bootable usb flash drive, so I may try booting my system under ubuntu to try the other version out... so far I have failed and found malware or installs that did not seem to jive with the directions they put out there... I mean there has to be a simple image out there that'll fit on a 16GB flash drive just waiting to be written...

(I should say a current ubuntu install, I've found many old ones but I'm trying to find ones that will work out of the bat for a complete linux novice with R9 drivers)

Heh, thank you to the person who PM'd me quickly with the link below... you can download the pen drive program, as well as the 13.10 iso quickly... I guess they were right, I really did over think it by searching out specific things instead of just going to ubuntu directly.

Listen to this. I have 3 280X.

 1 Gigabyte 280X windforce OC
 2 Sapphire 280X regular model.

The -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 -a 1 scrypt did not work well enough for my setup. I reached 8400 CPM with it.
I think I found out why.

 The sapphires run now each in their own window @ 3496 & 3457 CPM each using 2 threads and -a 1 algorith

 The Gigabyte does not like that. It stays around the 1.400 cpm mark. I do use it for the monitor but ok.
 So i delete the -a 1 scrypt; 1600 cpm. MEH
 So I take it back to basics: 1 thread and no algorith choice.
 Now it runs happily at 2.600 cpm.

 ODD

So one 280X is not the other 280X and for PTS mining I would RIGHT NOW recommend the Sapphire regular version of the 280X. BUT just because of my own experience. I like the Gigabytes but I can't find the optimal configuration yet.

 I am happily chugging away at 9700 cpm in total now with these 3 cards
 And @ 1150 shares per hour.

 Not too shabby. With the right cards a full rig of 280Xs (5 pieces) would ramp up to 16.500 cpm and 1.800+ spm.

Wow! That's VERY impressive indeed! I have 4 x MSI R9 290 Gaming cards running
Win8.1x64 with tweaked settings from AfterBurner and I'm only getting ~12300 c/m

currently run the -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3 which doesn't get me much more c/m but severely
increases my CPU usage for some reason. I'm assuming you are running Windows as
well since you mentioned "run in their own window" or are you running Linux and just
have multiple terminals open? Much thanks for this info!

if you have a 280 gpu with no monitor connected, you can run -t 0,0 (2 threads).
with monitor connected you better run -t 0 (1 threads)
So i have to run -t 0,0,1 (3 threads) because at device 1 there is my monitor....

-t 0,0,1 gives me 6200 cpm with 2x 280x

I'm using CAD software, and I get some lag, I need to decrease the intensity.

Note: I'm using 1x280x - Sapphire Dual-X, and using 2 threads makes cpm drop to around 1400. Seems that there are different results for 280x

Just wanna check if my values are okay or not:

I got actually 2 R9 290, producing about 6400 cpm, but only ~24 spm. Is this okay? I'm just asking because Hukkel said 16900 cpm will make about 1800 spm... that would make 600+ spm for my 6400 cpm (if I wasn't to sleepy to calcuate that :D):/

My 4 x R9 290's are getting 12270 c/m (collisions / min) and ypool is reporting 1360 s/h (shares / hour).
I think Hukkei meant to say 1800+ s/h (shares / hour), not 1800 s/m (shares / min). You might be missing
the hour & minutes conversion since your 24 s/m is really 1440 s/h.

Hi NaN. I have 4*R9 290x running on Xubuntu 64 and they are round 16000 cpm for two days. Today I replaced my old motherboard and restart the miner. It hits 16000 cpm than decreases gradually about 100 cpm per sec. After it hit around 8000 cpm, the computer freezes. I restart the computer and try to run the miner. The miner isn't be able to start anymore. Do you have any idea about it? My catalyst is the latest version from amd.

I also tried the old version and it didn't work too.

Seriously??? I know the 290X is a wee bit faster than the 290 (more shaders) but I've over clocked
my 4 x 290's to 1125/1350 and running -t 0,1,2,3,4 -a 1 and only getting 12300 c/m and 46 sh/m.
Is the 290x really THAT much faster or are we seeing a big difference between using clpts on linux
versus windows? If it weren't for the over clocking ease of windows I would definitely be on linux!!

Yes seriously. clpts runs better on Linux. I was only getting about 3000cpm per 290X on Windows, around 3200 if I overclocked.

I just created some shell scripts, one sets both GPUs to 1150/1400 and the other sets my fans to 100%. I have one that also prints the GPU temp, but I don't know how accurate that is lol.

Make in the pool 3 different workers and make 3 different .bat files. Each for one gfx card and one worker.

so -t 0,0 worker1 in the first, -t 1,1 in the second etc etc.

Make sure you turn crossfire off.

Which version do you use? I guess that you're using an old one. Use v0.1.4 or v0.2.2. If your monitor is attached to GPU 0, then I would use -t 0,1,1,2,2 and I would try -t 0,1,2 too. -a 1 should be fastest.

The numbers after -t are the DeviceIDs, which are shown during startup (DeviceID x). For each number in the list the miner starts one thread. Normally, the first GPU has DeviceID 0 so that -t 0 mines with one thread on the first card and -t 1 means that the miner uses one thread on the second card, etc. Thus, -t 2,2 means that the miner should launch two threads on the third GPU. It might increase your performance but at least the Windows driver of R9 290(X) seems to be broken and only the Linux driver functions with full speed. Just try whether  -t 0,1,1,2,2,3,3 or -t 0,1,2,3 give you better performance if you are using four GPUs.

Try to play around with the settings because 75xx cpm seems too low. Overclocking is most likely possible because of the low power usage. Most important is GPU core frequency but be aware of the pitfalls when overclocking Tahiti GPUs.

increase in speed. Wow.. thank you NaN! Now I'm delving into tweaking the GPU clock, memory,
fan, etc. I've read extensively about aticonfig and I can seem to get it to work on the first (default)
adapter, but every time I try to use the --adapter parameter it seems to only be setting/getting the
first (default) GPU. For example, aticonfig --adapter="all" --odgt  returns four values but they are
all the same. I'm suing kernel 3.8.0-35 and catalyst 13.12. Is this a good combo? Perhaps there
are other (GUI) utilities out there? Much appreciated!

Is your time correct (execute date to get the time)? I have no idea how Ubuntu handles time zones. Windows sets the hardware clock to local time but Linux normally assumes UTC.

Has anyone successfully set the GPU voltage using cgminer under linux for a R9 290(X)?
I have my gpu clock, memory, and fan settings where I want them to be but I wouldn't
mind under-volting the GPU to save a little energy and heat. I *believe* cgminer wants
an exact voltage and not a delta but I could be wrong. I don't know what the normal
voltage is for a R9 290 and every attempt to enter an absolute value like 1.25 fails (out
of boundary). Many thanks in advance!

So tinkering around with clpts... I was wondering... can you run six gpu's on windows, since everyone says its almost impossible without heavy modifications to windows and/or the drivers...

since I see a lot of fuss over people being able to run five with difficulty, and so many have to use some weird trick or tip to get six to work... so I ran to a friends, borrowed two video cards, and now I have an answer!

yes you can run six gpu's on windows 8.1 64bit...

I didn't need to do anything fancy for windows... hooked up to the risers and turned it on... came up right away...

Now I should mention, it was more challenging to get the BIOS to recognize all six cards, than windows... I had to disable several things in the BIOS, change all the pcie 16x slots to pcie 1x... and of course disable the onboard graphics (which I actually had been using since it was nice to mine full bore on the cards and use the onboard for daily work with no flickering).

my friend just called and asked when I'll have the cards back, I wish this was like borrowing a garden hose and he'd forget... he doesn't want to go all night without full mining, the sickness we all share!

I think the reason this was so easy, they were all the same GPU chipset, the pitcairn, a mix of 270 and 270X cards... I now wish I had a 7th one to test and see if I could get all seven to work together at once... I think this is the reason I love coin mining, its just one big hobby to tinker around with things and see what you can do.

Yes the idea is good. But you get them cheaper on Ebay. Plain regular risers or USB3.0 ones that are very nice in terms of use of space.

If you buy the ASRock H81 BTC mobo you don't need powered risers as the mobo has 2 4 pin molex connectors you can connect the PSU to so the extra 75W comes from them.



For the Linux users; is it possible to run more than 5 cards there? Win8 has a max of 5 and only for the HD79** series there is a custom driver available to run 6.

three his 280x ,win7 13.1dirver.just get 57xx, it's too bad. use -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 .
 if add -a 1, the miner can not run. 
so, help me!
Which version do you use? I guess that you're using an old one. Use v0.1.4 or v0.2.2. If your monitor is attached to GPU 0, then I would use -t 0,1,1,2,2 and I would try -t 0,1,2 too. -a 1 should be fastest.

Hello NaN, I thought 0,1,2.... is the number of card ? because for 4 card i use 0,1,2,3.
What exactly is his number? eg for a single card I put t 0? it would change something to put 0,1,2 for a single card?
The numbers after -t are the DeviceIDs, which are shown during startup (DeviceID x). For each number in the list the miner starts one thread. Normally, the first GPU has DeviceID 0 so that -t 0 mines with one thread on the first card and -t 1 means that the miner uses one thread on the second card, etc. Thus, -t 2,2 means that the miner should launch two threads on the third GPU. It might increase your performance but at least the Windows driver of R9 290(X) seems to be broken and only the Linux driver functions with full speed. Just try whether  -t 0,1,1,2,2,3,3 or -t 0,1,2,3 give you better performance if you are using four GPUs.

thank you NaN for the explicatio, when i try -t 0,1,1,2,2,3,3 i dont know why but i have invalid password or usernam worker.

I have beter result with version x86 that x64, i have windows 64 bits.

I have been in that same situation for the last two days. I found some good clocks that provide a rather good performance boost in-terms of c/m. I have my 290X's running at 1150/1150. The core increase raised my c/m by ~400, the problem is that I am having some heating issues (80C - 85C - 90C spikes)...I'll try to figure out a way to undervolt on linux, I'll post my solution here if I find anything. If you find something please share.

At the moment I have multiple .sh files that I execute after a system reboot. One sets the fan speed to 100%, and then overclocks my GPUs, one to initialize the miner, and the last one to monitor temps.

Edit: I found this http://sourceforge.net/projects/amdovdrvctrl/?source=navbar (http://sourceforge.net/projects/amdovdrvctrl/?source=navbar), I'll give it a try once I get home. It was last update Dec 13 2013.

question to the developer:

what about a back-up-pool-solution
now i'm awake and it is possible to change the beeeeeer-pool to ypool
but it is a problem when i'm not on

maybe there could be a switch after 2 mins without work at one pool - then the miner changes the pool
it is only a bit longer path to set like in cgminer to have the back-up-pools

the big work is not to set the bat-line, but to code this functionally ;)

Post by: mbender71 on February 13, 2014, 04:19:33 pm
Now THAT is quite the find! I can't wait to give that a shot when I get home as well!
Right now my solution is to run cgminer in a shell in which I immediately disable all
the GPU's by hand (haven't figured out a way to do that in a cgminer.conf). This allows
me to monitor GPU temps and FAN speeds... plus have control over other GPU parameters
if I want, but again this is mostly to monitor. The cgminer.conf I run when I start cgminer
has all my tweaks. Just thought I'd pass this out as a work around, albeit a little messy.

I have a question for NaN about this but in a different light.
Since we can start two threads on our GPUs (those that can)
would it be possible to mine at Ypool and Beeeeer at the same
time by running clpts-v0.1.x as one thread on all the GPUs and
then clots-v.02.x as one thread on all the GPUs. I would think
it's possible though you'd be mining half speed to each pool BUT
you'd be covering both bases at the same time. Just an idea/thought
that came to mind.... please, no flames :-)

running 6 gpu on one motherboard is very easy to burn your ATX connector on mother board since each pcie slot will draw 75w from motherboard. if you want to put more than 4 cards on same motherboard ,you need to use powered riser for pcie

I am using powered risers... they are the USB style with the nice molex on the little board that comes with it... you can also get a PSU like the AXi series from corsair and monitor what each power cord does for each GPU or other connection... its neat... you'll soon see you draw a lot less from PCIe slots than you think on average, most of the power goes through that little cord plugged into the GPU... some GPU's from sapphire now come with two 8pin plugs so almost all power goes through the PSU direct...

switching to Linux yesterday the multiple threads work great for that little *oomph*

(multiple thread) on Ypool and then run the remaining GPUs (multiple thread) on
Beeeer, essentially devoting a GPU card to a pool. This is great for those with even
amount of GPU cards which I will NOT have when my fifth arrives today....

Whats the problem with running an ODD number of GPUs?
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: mbender71 on February 13, 2014, 06:47:34 pm
None at all. I was just saying that if wanted to mine at two different pools
at the same time by running two separate threads on each GPU (one to Ypool
and one to Beeeeer) then ODD number is just fine. If you wanted to devote
GPU's to the both pools and have an ODD number of GPUs then obviously you'll
have one extra card to either pool..... UNLESS you split that one ODD card with
two threads with each thread going to a different pool. It's just configurations
and honestly I'm not sure if there are gains at ALL to be made by mine both
simultaneously. Technically you would be mining against yourself since everyone
is searching for the same "next block" (unless they are sneakily doing the 51%+
flaw) but at least you're guaranteed some share time instead of loosing all your
share time if the block is not found. In a perfect world if only two pools existed
then you'd be getting shares for each block found.... but....... :-) :-)

Can confirm behaviours that others have seen.  Using Win7x64 and latest versions of 0.1.x and 0.2.x.  for 7850 and 7990 cards I use about 1% CPU with -t 0.  with -t 0,0 CPU increases to 50% and CPM is less than -t 0.  Also see miner using 500MB mem sometimes.  Not a big deal as am perfectly happy with results from -t 0.

it pains me that I can't get the 64bit version of ubuntu installed on my intel board... I want to try ubuntu and clpts but it looks like the only linux version is 64bit so the 32bit ubuntu I have now will do me no good! jealousy!

Obviously, the miner cannot connect to ypool.net. Is your internet connection OK?

my internet connection is OK, I can use other miners(such as yam's CPU miner or abs123's gpu miner ) connect to ypool.net.
only this miner doesn't work.
I alse tried v0.1, It cannot connect to beeeeer.org too,

I'm in china, dose Great Fire Wall block something?

From my post a day or so ago :

I think I finally have my 4 x MSI R9 290 rig setup under Ubuntu running clpts v0.2.2
with all the tweaks for now. Currently mining on Ypool at the moment and getting :

collisions/min : 15130
shares/hr : 1730

The total rig is pulling 1100w with a 20" box fan running on low to keep air circulating.


What is your cpm with 4 R9 290?

Nice!! Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of buying a couple R9 290 if I can't find any cheap 290X. The problem is that even R9 290 are in the $600 range......:(
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: mbender71 on February 14, 2014, 01:49:02 pm
No problem! Actually I managed to snag another MSI R9 290 from NewEgg earlier this
week and it came in yesterday. Yeah, the price gouging is getting rough as I paid $25
more for this single one than I did the other 4 from the same seller! I also got rid of
the 20" box fan and purchased 4 200mm 110 cfm fans to lower the noise level.

So now the rig is as follows:

5 x MSI R9 290 running Ubuntu 13.04 & clpts v0.2.2.
Currently mining on Ypool at the moment and getting :

collisions/min : 18908
shares/hr : 2192

The total rig is pulling 1300w.

Yea I got lucky and I managed to get these 4x R9 290X for $599 ea off Amazon.

Aside from my 4x R9 290X I have 3 GTX 780 which are pulling a measly 6500 cpm together....I bought those last year before I planned on mining. *shrug*

Now I'm just creeping around Amazon, Newegg, Tigerdirect, and Ebay until i find some rightly priced R9 290(x).

Edit: What temp are your cards running at? I just bought some 1x to 16x powered PCIE adapters and I think I'm going to pull out all but one of my GPU(s) from the case. The second card is making my top card run at 80C - 85C at all times with Fans @ 100%.....while second card stays at 60C-65C.
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: mbender71 on February 14, 2014, 03:26:35 pm
You indeed ARE a lucky person to have grabbed those 290X's for so cheap! Everyone
is in the mining craze (which is good/bad) and so many of the cards are hard to get,
well except for the 290X as the price is so high that profitability isn't there for the
performance.

First question is if you bought a reference cooler design or did you buy a GPU card
with an advanced cooler design, such as MSI Gamer card with twin fans and special
radiator? The reference design cooling system is awful and it will be very hard to
keep them cool while running high performance tweaks. Fortunately, NaN has very
optimized software that provides GREAT performance with much less power consumption
than cgminer (not a super fair comparison since one is MOMENTUM mining and the other
is SCRYPT mining). NaN keeps pushing the envelope though and each revision is faster
but does consume a little more power. Still WAY better than SCRYPT performance though.

The key to high performance is great power supplies (I use two Seasonic 860 Platinums)
using the proper PSU coupler (amazon for $29) and more importantly a good plan for
cooling. First step is to forget mining inside a case. Get yourself large plastic crates or a
wireframe rack. Next is to space out the GPUs properly! The farther apart they are, the
better. Actually the BEST thing you can do is make sure there is nothing in front of the
intake fans on the GPUs, that is the fans are pulling in fresh room air and NOT preheated
air from the GPU next to it. Having all the GPU's next to each other produces the cascading
heat effect where the GPU on the furthest right runs super cool as nothing is in front of it.
The next GPU gets pre-heated air from the GPU to the right of it, and so on and so on until
the furthest card on the left is running super hot. Same principal applies in cases but from
top to bottom.

Having said that, use some ingenuity to keep those GPU's cool! My goal is to keep them
under 80C while running full steam and better yet, keep them 70C or lower. It *CAN* be
done but requires some thinking *smile*. Keep the GPU fans running 85% or higher as
that is your first line of defense (closest to gpu/radiator) to keeping temps down. Sure it's
loud but you're mining.... PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT.... second line of defense it to keep
cool air in front of the GPU fans.

Good luck!

Hey I was just thinking about this... 2191 is your shares per HOUR right? which comes out to roughly 36 a MINUTE? this seems awfully low to me if I am reading it right... I was tinkering around with 6 x R9 270 cards and was getting 8600 cpm and 33 shares per minute... and thats after it was running overnight for a good 12 hours so it wasn't a quick burst...

I'm wondering if there some difference in whats displayed in windows 64bit 0.1.4 at beeeeer and the version you are running on ubuntu over at ypool? I mean am I accurate, or are you accurate? if we're both accurate, something can't be right lol.

[STATS] 2014-Feb-14 17:54:47 | 8593.08 c/m | 33.35 sh/m | VL: 603 (97.89%), RJ: 13 (2.11%), ST: 0 (0.00%)

am I translating the sh/m correctly into sh/h ? 33.35 x 60 minutes = 2001 shares/hr for me?

which would mean at half the cpm I am almost equal to your shares?

Sometimes I wish english was my first language, I always feel like I am wrong.

(answer found: turns out ypool and beeeeer have different difficulty settings, so shares won't always match)

Post by: NaN on February 15, 2014, 12:23:14 am
beeeeer.org and ypool.net have different share difficulties, so everything is ok. At the moment the beeeeer client shows a share target of 0x00fff..., which translates to <shares per minute> ~ <cpm> / 256 and for ypool we currently have <shares/h> ~< cpm> / 512 * 60 ignoring statistical uncertainties. Please note that the share difficulty can be changed any time by the pool operator.

Well that makes the math much easier... so essentially the shares/minute/hour seems to average out to equal CPM based upon the difficulty of 256/512... so we really should only be judging by the CPM as a comparison when we're trading numbers with folks?

I have 4 r9 290x running on ubuntu 12.10. The driver is 13.12 linux. I tried to run clptes but have an error message.

error in xptMiner/clInit.cpp, line 96: Method clGetDeviceIDs(...) failed (errorcode -1)

Any idea to fix it?

I think I've seen this error before after the AMD drivers crash. First I would check to
see if the AMD drivers are seeing all of your video cards properly :

aticonfig --list-adapters

If you see your adapters then I suggest shutting down your machine and restarting.
Strange things happen when the AMD drivers fail and the only way to get things back
on track is a shutdown/restart of the box. Hope this helps a little.

Beeeeer Vs YPool

A little off topic but not so much when NaN's incredible miner only works on these two pools.
I used to mine @ Be^5r a week ago but it seems like they are either offline higher than usual
and now the time between solved blocks is increasing (perhaps due to less miners and technical
difficulties like DDoS). YPool has been pretty darn steady the past three days until yesterday when
clpts says it disconnected, will wait 45 seconds, and then just exit out to the command line.

NaN : How do you handle disconnects from the server? Do you only try one time after 45 seconds
         and then just exit out? Last night it happened twice to me and fortunately insomnia had me
         restart clpts by hand. Perhaps I should script it to keep trying. I seem to recall someone else
         asking about fail-over as well and I suspect this is due to the issues these two pools are having
         lately.

Everyone : Which pool do you prefer using, YPool or Be^5r? YPool works so well but I dislike pools
                 that are too large in fear of block control.

I think I saw this somewhere on this thread;

I have a 5770 on Ubuntu that I've been trying to test before putting my 290's on it. I cannot get the miner to work on the 5770. This is normal right? I was trying and failing but then remembered I thought I read in here that HD 5 series cards won't work on Ubuntu but will work in windows. I am curious as I did have it working with this miner in Windows.

So just to clarify can the 5770 mine using this miner in Ubuntu?

1094 with success. I think it can go a step lower still, but I'm testing this way, and it's made some good different in C and Watts. But 60C isn't hot man, here I'm running it at 70C!

Yes 60C is not "hot" I guess, but 50C is better ;)

once you add in energy savings too that is the bonus, once you pay for hardware, only cost is energy... reduce cost increase return... thank you for your information, now I just have to figure out the safe way to change BIOS as it seems these cards are locked and using a windows program does not work...

So I'm using Catalyst 13.12 and 2x R9 290X with the following -t 0,0,1,1 -a 1 (tried 0,2,3)


And I'm hovering around 6200-6300 C/M. If I launch more than 1 window the first window will slowly begin loosing C/M. It seems I cannot run Multi Thread on the 290X any suggestions?


It spawns 4 workers but the performance is the same as if I just ran -t 0,1.

did you run with 2Thread and -a 1 ??
This is what I'm using right now:

-p x -t 0,1,3 -a 1
Change Driver and try
-px -t 0.0,1,1,3 -a 1
Will do. Should also mention this card is not overclocked, mostly because when I do I don't see a CPM change. Just continues to chill at 2647.
hrm

I'm running a 7970 in Windows 7 with -t 0 -a 3 @ 2700cpm, underclocked to hell and voltage approaching performance level 1 levels

the 270 is -t 1 -a 1 @ 1500cpm and also underclocked, temps @ 52oC and 57oC respectively

but I was thinking -t was something else, so i haven't even tried the 7970 with 2 threads or whatever?  nfc.       too lazy to right now

win7 64 amd13.12
280x 3100, but 290 only 2800?

I released a fast OpenCL PTS-miner for AMD GPUs. The performance is 3100+ c/m on a R9 280X and 1300+ c/m on a 7870, so that this seems to be the fastest released miner. Binaries are available for Windows and 64bit-Linux.
DOWNLOAD v0.1.x: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/d5qvec5kxlug1bm/FR3Y_78Eag connects to the beeeeer.org pool, which has 2.5% pool fees. The developer fees for this version are 7/367 ~ 1.9%.
DOWNLOAD v0.2.x: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1ioh00043hqbsbk/wTptW3dr22 connects to the ypool.net pool, which has 5% pool fees. The developer fees for this version are 2.5% to make smaller pools more attractive. The developer fees are automatically transferred by ypool.net to the developer so the user's miner does not need to reconnect to support the developer.

UPDATE 10: version v0.2 of the miner is released, which supports the pool on ypool.net. If you want to connect to beeeeer.org you should use v.0.1.2. The miner does NOT support the 1GH-pool yet because the pool does not implement the latest xpt-protocol but 1GH-pool support is still planned. EDIT There was a typo in the README. The usage of v0.2 is <exe-name> -u <username>.<worker> -p <pass> -t <GPU DeviceID list>

UPDATE 12: I released a new version with large performance improvements. The syntax of the command line options of v0.1.x has changed and one has to specify the device IDs like in v0.2.x (see README). Furthermore, the command line option -a was introduced to select an algorithm. I guess that -a 0 or -a 2 should be fastest on R9 290(X) and -a 1 or -a 3 should be best for non-R9 290(X) cards.

known issues: The miner does not run if the installed Catalyst driver is too old. Multi-GPU support works for most users but sometimes the miner won't work if there are different cards installed. Then you have to run an instance of the miner on each card. The miner is not optimized to run on 5000 and 6000 series GPUs and needs about 1.2GB free GPU RAM.

NOTE 1: When you post errors I appreciate some information about the operating system (Windows or Linux / 32bit or 64bit is sufficient) and the used Catalyst driver. Furthermore you should suppress the section between the stars of the output of the miner excluding the miner version (at the moment it hasn't any relevance but it will become important in the future).

NOTE 2: Please make sure that you are not using an outdated Catalyst version and read the README.


I would be grateful for donations to speed up the development of a version for Nvidia GPUs and 1GH-pool support:

With Linux you will get much more out of the R9 290. Most likely this a Windows Catalyst driver issue.

Whoa! Didn't discover the recent release until yesterday. Thanks for this massive boost in performance! This is amazing stuff.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I'm using W7 x64, 4 GB RAM, Catalyst 14.1 beta (same performance as 13.12).

5 280X cards in total: (3x R9 280X ASUS DC2T, 1x R9 Gigabyte Windforce 3X and 1x Sapphire Dual-X OC). Total CPM jumped from 10900 CPM to 17100 CPM (~3400 CPM each) with 2 threads but without any extra flags. Each card is running 1100/1500 @ stock voltage right now. Will try with -a 1 and so on.

I did run into an issue that others might need the solution for. On rig #1 (W7 x64 / 4GB RAM), when running 2 threads on all 4 cards the miner would either shutdown, crash or freeze my PC. It would run 3 cards with 2 threads each, but once the 4th card attempted to use 2 threads an error message including some message about memory would pop up.

I eventually realized that the problem was my page file. The initial size was set to 6141MB and the max 8192MB. I doubled both of these values and was able to run all 4 cards with 2 threads each and no issues!

Sent a small amount of PTS for your continued invested time in this project of yours. Will continue doing so as the PTS keeps rolling in. 8)

-a 0 is indeed fastest for R9 290 in Linux.

Think there will be a fix for the Windows side of things?  At the moment I have my mining rig on linux only because how much better your miner performs on the OS with 290x's.  The lack of overclocking utilities and support for the Hawaii cards on linux is pretty underwhelming though.

Does anyone know how to change GPU voltages on nix for Hawaii cards or even how to monitor current voltages?  At the moment all I can control are clocks/mem/powertune/fan.

A strange thing: if i run my dual 280x right after login (win7x64) with -t 0,0,1,1 it runs fine with 7070 cpm and not "lagged" monitor at gpu 1. if i run cgminer (scrypt) before (and stop this of course), then i can not run at -t 0,0,1,1. Monitor gets heavy lag and mouse is not usable any more, very hard to close miner-window, cpm is down at ~4000. Problem is only the GPU with monitor attached, other one is fine, So i have to run with -t 0,0,1 (3 threads) only after scrypting. Maybe cgminer leaves a mess in gpu, maybe it´s a memory allocation problem in gpu-memory because of graphics? I´m a noob, but is it possible to init gpu (-memory) after start of your miner?

having a similiar problem here with Win7 64, R9 270x and 13.12 driver. if i start the miner directly after login i get 1350 cpm. If i start the miner after cgminer was launched and stoped i get around 560 cpm...i don´t care about that, but it might be interesting for other people testing and wondering about the low hash rate.

I have previously reported some windows updates changed some of the performance of the 0.1.4 version... but I got mistaken by the fact that I am using the second GPU for my monitor... and the AMD driver has a "flaw" (in my opinion...) that when the first card to be detected over the PCIe has no Display adapter connected to the RAMDAC... it does not "turn on the full potential of the GPU"...

Workaround:
Simple connect a display there.. you don't use.. or plug-in and plug-out the other card display just to "activate" the RAMDAC...

I had no time to investigate further yet... just reporting.
My drivers are 13.12 (win 7 x86_64)

Just to be sure it's not related to my GPU type, i am using:
PCIe 1: R9 270X
PCIe 2: nothing
PCIe 3: R9 290X (monitor connected)

MOtherboard: ASUS GENE II


NOTE: I guess that while there is no way to say to old BIOS (like X58 chipsets like mine) which is the "main" adapter... where you use your display screen... this will be a problem. But it lacks fixing... as for my logic.. it's considered a driver bug.. to identify the GPU as non-fully-functional...

I mean if you walk away from a computer and the monitor turns off, why keep things running and wasting energy, it is a brilliant energy saving feature 99% of people benefit from, except miners... you need a dummy plug that will trick it into thinking there is an actual monitor plugged in... I'm assuming your 270 card probably came with a DVI to VGA adapter of some sort, most seem to, you can use the website below and some simple resistors from an electronics store.

http://rumorscity.com/2013/12/06/how-to-create-dummy-plugs-for-your-graphics-cards/

some people who use certain powered risers, won't need this as the pcboard they connector to their cards will have this built in as a feature...

This is a great article and find but unfortunately it doesn't apply to those with R9 290(x). Perhaps someone will come up with a solution
for those of us with linux + r9 290(x) in the near future. I do know someone that used this mod and it worked great!

First, congrats for your  very good work. I think the 2.5% fee helps to motivate ;)

Second, I've ran into an issue with 0.2.2 (Didn't test with previous versions) : I can't launch more than 8 threads inside one clpts, have to launch 2 times. Seems related to the lenght of the command line, when I put more than 8 threads, clpts can't authenticate (showing me a weird one char login).

My login is 8 chars, my password 1 char.

Probably a minor issue but if you can have a look, it's probably a 30s fix ;)

Thank you

Not an easy task if you're not familiar with linux, but not impossible. I would suggest YouTube videos on someone setting up Ubuntu mining rigs with AMD cards.. if I recall there is one guy that does a pretty good job though he's geared towards LiteCoin... just do the steps UP to the install of cgminer. Going the Linux route is not the non-techie type. Stick to windows if you want quick & fast install. Good luck!

I apologize if this was all the information you needed. Starting up the miner is the easy part. I was assuming that you
just installed Ubuntu and you haven't installed the AMD catalyst drivers and assured that xorg.conf was setup correctly
(which is kind of the pain in the neck part). If you have 'aticonfig --list-adapters' working and reporting all your GPU's

You have registered on Ypool, then you go to the "workers" tab and create a worker which you give a name and a password.

You insert the name and password into the scrypt. That is all.

I have a 5770 on Ubuntu that I've been trying to test before putting my 290's on it. I cannot get the miner to work on the 5770. This is normal right?

I am curious as I did have it working with this miner in Windows.

So just to clarify can the 5770 mine using this miner in Ubuntu?

i had to move some cards around, since ptsgpu won't let me specify the devices to run it on, but will actually work with things like 5830.

so I run this on my 7970, 270's, etc.. and run ptsgpu on the older cards

my .bat is  clpts_x86-64.exe -u xxxxxx.pts_1 -p xxxxx -t 0,1

everything was working fine the past few day until tonight. i was getting ~1750 col/m on these settings.

I am on a 7970, running clpts_x86-64 -u user.1 -p 1 -t 0 -a 3,3

it gets 2800 collisions/m

i guess it can probably go higher, but i haven't really tinkered with the algorithm settings any, or card settings

it's running @ 1100 core 1300 memory , 1.063v, 61oC in ~76oF ambient

ed: and i need to read the readme file, because i'm not even sure if i'm using the -t and -a modifiers properly, scratch.  i thought -t specified the device #

Yes you have -t and -a backwards... -t 3,3 -a 1

this will run two threads on the number 3 GPU... if you have another card to run this on, it might look like 3,3,4 to run two threads on GPU 3 and 1 thread on GPU 4... all depends what you have... I see you must be using gpu 0,1,2 for another miner? just have to get the right GPU ID for the right card...

I've found the -a 1 to be the best setting, but try all of them to see what works best for your card (0,1,2,3), -a 0 is more for the 290 crowd I guess... and yes please read the readme file it has the basic examples folks should be using. :)

haha, yeah, this is much better.  now it's -t 0,0 and -a 1... getting 3500cpm (only a 30 second reading so could be off 10% or so but still much faster than before)

Please use the latest version, i.e. 0.1.4 for beeeeer.org and 0.2.2 for ypool.net
EDIT Is another miner running on your computer?

Checked environment variables and GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT was set at 0. Changed it to 100 percent. Everything is working now. 0.2.2 is giving my 7970 ~2925 col/m. Much faster now!

Thanks for your help!

Maybe remember if somebody has same error to check that setting. Thanks again.

Sorry to hear about your troubles, but like I said before in my reply to you, this is NOT an easy operating system to just
pick up (from from Windows). You'll have to do lots of research to do this right and my advice that you look on YouTube for
a video to setup a Linux Miner + LiteCoin was the best... really!! Not a lot of hand holding on this forum I'm afraid. If you want
linux that bad you're gonna have to work for it like the rest of us.... or just stick to windows :-) Good luck!

THEORETICAL QUESTION

Which would be more efficient, or would it even matter at all :

1) Ypool : run clpts-v0.2.2 with all of your GPUs at once in one window (two threads each GPU)
    (i.e. one instance of clpts-v0.2.2)

or

2) Ypool : run clpts-v0.2.2 for EACH GPU in a separate window (two threads each GPU)
    (i.e. "n" instances of clpts-v0.2.2)

In the first scenario you have ONE worker on Ypool and on the second you have "n" number of workers.
I guess the question is really geared towards NaN who knows the in's out's of how the AMD drivers thread
and also about how Ypool (or any pool for that matter) distributes blocks to solve. Thanks in advance!

Well. I set up a cgminer bat yesterday and accidentally put GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 0 and my GPU would not mine at all even with the PTS miner. It ends up in the environment variables in Windows 7, so its a command that will apply to different programs if you set it for one.

Normally, this error indicates that no X server is running or that the driver does not function properly. Did you run sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial (after that you have to reboot) and what does dmesg | grep -i fglrx tell you? Is a X server running (i.e. does ps -A | grep X return anything)? Otherwise you have to execute the binary as root.

I found this guide on editing your bios to undervolt AMD GPU's on linux. Someone should give it a try and share your results, of course know that this is at your own risk. I am extremely busy with my work and school schedule so I most likely won't get to it this week.

http://www.cryptobadger.com/2013/10/undervolting-in-linux-via-modified-bios/ (http://www.cryptobadger.com/2013/10/undervolting-in-linux-via-modified-bios/)

This is a great article and find but unfortunately it doesn't apply to those with R9 290(x). Perhaps someone will come up with a solution
for those of us with linux + r9 290(x) in the near future. I do know someone that used this mod and it worked great!

Silly question.

I am running clptsv0.2.2 om ypool.

When I left for work my 280X was running at 2,900 c/m. Now it is only at 2,200 c/m. I restarted it and no difference. didn't change the bat file or anything. Actually my 270, 270X, both 7850's also are running under what they were before.

Would the change in difficulty on ypool affect the c/m? Or might I have something else going on?

Thanks

Has anyone successfully set the GPU voltage using cgminer under linux for a R9 290(X)?
I have my gpu clock, memory, and fan settings where I want them to be but I wouldn't
mind under-volting the GPU to save a little energy and heat. I *believe* cgminer wants
an exact voltage and not a delta but I could be wrong. I don't know what the normal
voltage is for a R9 290 and every attempt to enter an absolute value like 1.25 fails (out
of boundary). Many thanks in advance!

I have been in that same situation for the last two days. I found some good clocks that provide a rather good performance boost in-terms of c/m. I have my 290X's running at 1150/1150. The core increase raised my c/m by ~400, the problem is that I am having some heating issues (80C - 85C - 90C spikes)...I'll try to figure out a way to undervolt on linux, I'll post my solution here if I find anything. If you find something please share.

At the moment I have multiple .sh files that I execute after a system reboot. One sets the fan speed to 100%, and then overclocks my GPUs, one to initialize the miner, and the last one to monitor temps.

Edit: I found this http://sourceforge.net/projects/amdovdrvctrl/?source=navbar (http://sourceforge.net/projects/amdovdrvctrl/?source=navbar), I'll give it a try once I get home. It was last update Dec 13 2013.

Think I found the sweet-spot for my cards. The R9 280X ASUS DC2T's are amazing! These results are from 24-48 hours of mining.

W7 64
4GB RAM

3x 280X ASUS DC2T @ 1160/1600 and 1x 280X Gigabyte Windforce 3X @ 1100/1500 with the flags -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3 -a 2. Total = 14374 CPM. (Avg is ~3593 CPM.)

Temps are ranging from 62C to 72C at 60% fan-speed with ambient at 25C-30C depending on the time of day. If running 4 instances, one for each card, each card would hit 3300-3400 CPM (why?).

My single 280X Sapphire Dual-X @ 1100/1500 hits 3362 CPM. It has low ASIC rating and fans that apparently are prone to fail; I'm just gonna leave this as is.

R9 270X 4GB   <--- 4GB version...

anyone with these 4GB cards, running two threads per card???

out of curiosity I decided to start doing it, and it works out pretty good... its got the memory (with room to spare) to run both threads and I've gotten a roughly 300cpm increase on each card, so I thought I would ask around... I had only been using the 280X cards with two threads, and was wondering why I never saw anyone mention the 4GB 270X cards with two threads, I know most 270 series come with only 2GB and won't do this, but for those with them, what are your results?

guess I will find out in 8 hours how well the results hold...

UPDATE :: well after 8 hours it seems I am getting a 428 cpm increase per card and holding... I guess you really can squeeze a lot out of a 4GB 270X card... almost 2000 cpm per card... (wish the other cards weren't 2GB now)

Is this the correct way to OC? I just used this for my 290x and set the clocks as 1150,1150. I was asked to confirm it and did so using the command supplied. It then displayed overdrive was enabled.

My CPM hasn't changed at all though. Was about 3900 before hand and still is. Using flags -a 0 -t 0,0

how to set the fan speed to 100%? with multiple GPU Fan speed? @ubuntu 12.04

Hint : cgminer..... aticonfig does NOT work under linux with more than one GPU

It works, just use the following.

export DISPLAY=:0
aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 100"

export DISPLAY=:0.1
aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 100"

"export DISPLAY=:0.X" --> Change X to whatever GPU you want to change the fan speed on.

Would this work for overclocking cards like 270's with aticonfig?

I still don't have a proper method for undervolting on Linux. I use the following to overclock core and memory.

aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-setclocks=1140,1500

just change adapter number for different GPU's, also [Core, Memory]

I get the following when using aticonfig to try to overclock my 270's... It may because they are on the same system as my 290x's.

Code: [Select]
sudo aticonfig --adapter=1 --od-setclocks=1150,1500
invalid input. Please use the following format
"--od-setclocks=<NewCoreClock>,<NewMemoryClock>,<PowerState>,<Performance Level>"

are you sure the BIOS has 1150 as a valid range on a 270 (non-x) card? I think mine were capped at 1050 in the BIOS... have you tried just raising slightly above regular clock speeds and keep adding on top of that as it works?

hi NaN!

we know difficult for protoshares is rised to 0.017247.
just a simple question.
When difficult rise, with same config, cpm go down?
or when difficult rise the cpm remain the same, but i get minus shares/hour?

thank you for the answer!

CPM will stay the same at all difficulties. Share difficulty is defined by the pool and will also stay the same. What will change is how hard it is to get a block.

i just can control 0 GPU ‘s fan speed
but

can not control?

according to your latest screenshot, you didn't even do what he suggested

so what more can be said?

well, OK, I'm curious as to why you've increased the voltage and powerlimit in afterburner.   with those settings, you should be undervolting

ed:   :-\

ok, run at 1100-1250 instead, you shouldnt need to raise voltage for that either, but who knows.  depends on the card I guess.

then run

clpts_x86-64 -u xxx -p xxx -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 -a 1

if you still get super slow speeds, fix your drivers

i get 3600 c/m with a 7970 in windows 7

ed2:  oh, for starters, both the screenshots in here are using the wrong version of catalyst

ed3:  and in screenshot 1, uh, is your PSU good enough to run that?  lol.

That's not a miner bug. Most likely there is no running Xserver or OpenCL is not installed correctly. Do you use the newest version because older versions could have such behaviour if a Intel OpenCL platform was installed?

I wasn't implying it was a miner bug. I was able to get the miner to fire up on a 5770, even though it couldn't do anything. But when I put the 290 in the machine, then I get this code. I reinstalled the drivers, but same thing. I get this error. So I've got something wrong with the software installation otherwise. Been Googling for two days now. Nothing seems to work.

Hi znakistu, I have very similar config just like you. My two 7970 are Sapphire ref. design cards. I flashed them to GHz bios (with default voltage 1.162v), which mean now they both have 1050/6000(effective), and yours are 1055/6000. Just wondering how stable have you run under that voltage, 1094mv? I am thinking to undervolt it but not sure how to test it, because the ref. design, my cards are now 85 oC and 82 oC. Hoping I can under volt it and give me some temp down. Can you share me your experience?

@NaN, our 7970/280X are all at sweet point with your num. 2 algorithm... It is weird. I tested each alg. one by one.

There is no reason to install the SDK with 13.12. The OpenCL libraries are included. Only install if you want to compile, and even then
be VERY careful as I did try to install the SDK and compile but the SDK version didn't match well with the 13.12 drivers.

I'm running debian7 with amd 13.12 but only getting 7700c/m from my 3 280x, using multiple threads doesn't seem to improve rate, I'm using -a 1

Also CPU usage is very high 

Seems people are getting better results on windows ...

I wasn't implying it was a miner bug. I was able to get the miner to fire up on a 5770, even though it couldn't do anything. But when I put the 290 in the machine, then I get this code. I reinstalled the drivers, but same thing. I get this error. So I've got something wrong with the software installation otherwise. Been Googling for two days now. Nothing seems to work. This is the full error. Running AMD 13.12 drivers. And AMD APP SDK 2.9

error in xptMiner/clInit.cpp, line 96: Method clGetDeviceIDs(...) failed (errorcode -1)

Had a few work colleague fix this for me. 

I was just told AMD forgot some stuff when they released 13.12 and that was causing the problem. 

Instead of patching it, just use the AMD 14.1 beta instead and it should work.
ouch...

Ouch meaning what? Sucked he had to have someone else fix it? Or that 14.1 drivers suck?

No, "ouch" because AMD f***ed it up. I hoped that those times were over... That is not the only problem with the Catalyst drivers (e.g. the 290(X) performance inconsistency in Windows and Linux)

Rewrite your xorg.conf by running sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial -f and reboot.

I did this. No dice. Then I uninstalled and re-installed the 14.1 Catalyst drivers 3 times tonight hoping it would work. Still getting the same message. Error -1 on line 96 whatever that means. My 290 is fine, I can mine in windows, but I want to get this working in Linux. I'm really liking Linux other than this issue.

Well, crud. Seems my miner will not start in Linux. Stupid error code. There's nothing on the web about this either. The card shows up fine when running aticonfig --list-adapters. Everything else works as well it seems. I need some ideas if anyone has something for me to try?

Here are the code lines I'm trying to start in the Terminal. Maybe there's something wrong here. I am on water. Could the absence of a fan be the culprit? I know on Windows I had to add a line to get it to work. Sure its different in Linux if this is the issue. Anyway, here's the code:

#!/bin/bash

./clpts -u username.minername -p password -t 0 -a 1

The error indicates that something is wrong with OpenCL. I would check whether the AMD APP SDK is correctly uninstalled and I would try another driver installed via apt-get.

I've been reluctant to try the 14.1 drivers because of the significant performance impacts seen with scrypt miners.  I know my performance on the ASUS R9-290XOC is crap (550KH/s) compared to where it should be.

In clpts I'm getting around 3250c/m with the R9-290X under Windows 8.1 and the 13.x AMD drivers.

How much better is it under Linux?

Overclocked 7970's / 280X's are getting 3500CPM on Windows so needless to say there's an issue with the Hawaii cards.  My 290X's on Linux net me 4500 CPM each @ 1125/1400.

I've seen people post 4100-4500 cpm under ubuntu for the R9 290X... they all noticed a huge gain when they switched from windows... I think folks have made the same comment on other cards, but its been less noticeable for most cards, but the 290 series sure does not like windows for some reason...

little off topic... anyone looking to get some smaller cards, I am selling cards to upgrade to other cards... so if you're looking for some smaller R9 270 2GB series cards check out my posting in the other forum here, powered risers can also be included... :)

That's a huge performance difference, especially with the hit PTS earnings have taken with all the new miners jumping in ypool.  I need the machine running windows (Server 2012r2 actually) during the day.  I'll have to experiment with SMOS tomorrow and see if it supports the MB and NIC.

I've read all the pages in one night and summarized some performance results (which card gets how many CPMs) from the discussion. And wanted to share it. I wish I could upload it in more elegant way (web friendly), but unfortunately I couldn't manage it. If someone can transform it in a web form it'd be great.

my 7970 can get 3700 cpm in windows 7, r7-260 (2gb) around 1300, and r9 270 (2gb) around 1700

too bad clpts doesn't have a backup pool, it's probably worse than most of the other gpu miners if you tested efficiency over a 24hr period

ed: this is with catalyst 14.1

btw, i also found it much faster to run 3 separate instances of clpts in my machine with the r7-260, r9 270, r9 270....  it went from about 4500 cpm to *4700 or so (ok, I guess that's not "much" faster, but faster anyway)

-t is for threads

you should be using 0,0,1,1,2,2 on three 280X cards...

this runs two threads per GPU... any card with 3GB or 4GB can run two threads...

0 = GPU 1
1 = GPU 2
2 = GPU 3
3 = GPU 4
4 = GPU 5

if you have ONE video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0
if you have ONE video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0
if you have ONE video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0

if you have TWO video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0,1
if you have TWO video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1
if you have TWO video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1

if you have THREE video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0,1,2
if you have THREE video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2
if you have THREE video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2

if you have FOUR video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0,1,2,3
if you have FOUR video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3
if you have FOUR video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3

if you have FIVE video card with 2GB of memory it would be -t 0,1,2,3,4
if you have FIVE video card with 3GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4
if you have FIVE video card with 4GB of memory it would be -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4

R9 270 2GB = 1 THREAD PER GPU
R9 270X 2GB = 1 THREAD PER GPU
R9 270X 4GB = 2 THREAD PER GPU
R9 280X 3GB = 2 THREAD PER GPU
R9 290 4GB = 2 THREAD PER GPU (currently performs best under linux)
R9 290X 4GB = 2 THREAD PER GPU (currently performs best under linux)

I wasn't implying it was a miner bug. I was able to get the miner to fire up on a 5770, even though it couldn't do anything. But when I put the 290 in the machine, then I get this code. I reinstalled the drivers, but same thing. I get this error. So I've got something wrong with the software installation otherwise. Been Googling for two days now. Nothing seems to work. This is the full error. Running AMD 13.12 drivers. And AMD APP SDK 2.9

Had a few work colleague fix this for me. 

I was just told AMD forgot some stuff when they released 13.12 and that was causing the problem. 

Instead of patching it, just use the AMD 14.1 beta instead and it should work.

Seems they didn't fix it in 14.1 either. I'm getting the exact same error in 14.1.

@battleaxe: Your GPU is not recognized by the OpenCL implementation. I guess that the easiest way to fix the driver is to do a clean install of Ubuntu and after that only install the Catalyst driver 13.12 WITHOUT the APP SDK. To install the driver you have to download the driver from the AMD website and create a package for your Ubuntu version. After that install the packet using apt-get.

@lir111: What are your command line options?


Ouch meaning what? Sucked he had to have someone else fix it? Or that 14.1 drivers suck?
No, "ouch" because AMD f***ed it up. I hoped that those times were over... That is not the only problem with the Catalyst drivers (e.g. the 290(X) performance inconsistency in Windows and Linux)

I so hope the Windows issue is resolved for the 290x's.  Not sure how long I can stomach Linux's lack of undervolting/clocking tools for these cards.  I can't even see what voltage my cards are running at... :(

Has anyone tried mining with the 14.1 drivers on windows with the 290x's?

I've been reluctant to try the 14.1 drivers because of the significant performance impacts seen with scrypt miners.  I know my performance on the ASUS R9-290XOC is crap (550KH/s) compared to where it should be.

In clpts I'm getting around 3250c/m with the R9-290X under Windows 8.1 and the 13.x AMD drivers.

How much better is it under Linux?

Im getting 4133 cpm per card with my powercolor 290x's

I've ran into an issue with 0.2.2 (Didn't test with previous versions) : I can't launch more than 8 threads inside one clpts, have to launch 2 times. Seems related to the lenght of the command line, when I put more than 8 threads, clpts can't authenticate (showing me a weird one char login).

My login is 8 chars, my password 1 char.

Probably a minor issue but if you can have a look, it's probably a 30s fix ;)

If you have undervolted your video card, that is the MOST likely reason why the miner keeps crashing when trying to run multiple threads as it requires more power, but you can't provide it since you've lowered the voltage, the display drivers stop working and the miner does as a result... or one card will stop working while the others continue to run... I went through that exact experience when I was trying to find the best voltage to use... you simply need to increase the voltage on each card until you no longer have this problem.... each card may be slightly different with voltage requirements, but I would recommend raising all of them to an equal amount...

Make sure that you run sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial after the installation and reboot after that. --buildpkg Ubuntu/saucy has to be replaced by the name of your Ubuntu distro e.g. --buildpkg Ubuntu/raring.

hey, having a bit of an issue with the miner.
currently have two 280x cards in my system.
both have exactly the same clocks, and get virtually the same hash on every miner i have used sofar.
however, using the beer miner from here, one of my cards gets 3400c/m, while the other only gets 800c/m
any ideas why this might be happening?
tried using one instance, two seperate instances, doesnt make any difference...
the following is what i have in my bat file.
clpts_x86-64 PYXryJqS1vvzwutrdr7msEcBvt3tnH3ZQQ -t 0,0,1,1 -a 1

Post by: NaN on February 21, 2014, 10:48:58 pm
try -t 0,1 first. after that -t 0,0,1 and -t 0,1,1. My guess is that one of the threads creates high cpu load.
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: dyckah on February 21, 2014, 10:58:42 pm
running -t 0,1,1 does bump me up to 5900c/m on one instance, or if i go with two instances, 3400c/m and 2500c/m
however, cpu load never went up above 15% on the other one, running on a qx9650 @ 4.0ghz
why such high variance on two cards running exactly the same clocks?
even if just running cards by themself, one at a time, -t 0,0 gets 800c/m, -t 1,1 gets 3400c/m

looks like we really will need multi-pool and fall-back, I'm reading ypool is having extreme issues from what others are posting, and beeeeer has rejections rising up into the double digits suddenly... any chance the fall-back can be set to try another pool if a certain level of rejection rate is reached... I'm used to 1.5% give or take, but I'm up to 10% today and others are stuck well into the 20% or more range... not that I really see many PTS pools out there...

NaN. I just wanted to let you know that I got it working using your last advice. Sending some PTS your way soon as I make something on this thing. :) Thank you!

Okay. Now can someone tell me how to overclock this thing in Linux? I'm fine with using the Terminal to set the OC so I just need your commands if someone wouldn't mind helping me.

Use the CGminer Command ,google how use it.

I did. It didn't work for some reason. Man this thing has been so much trouble. At least its working now. But I know my GPU can clock way higher than 945/1250, so I know I could do much better.

Hi, tnx for the best gpu miner ;)
can u make version for http://ptspool.com/ (http://ptspool.com/)?
I want to mine in http://ptspool.com/ but can not use the miner.
I'm trying with "-o 112.124.13.238:28988" but can not connect.
ptspool.com also support xpt so you just need to give the option "-o" to select the pool.

Hey,

thanks for your great miner.

What exactly do i need to mine on Linux?

I am using mainly linux (servers and notebook) so i have no issues with configuring linux but the 290x machine is my gaming pc and runs with windows 8.1 . I want a simple linux installation that runs on a USB device so i can mine at night with the 290x.

Things seem to calmer with Ypool today.  I've been get disconnected many times last night and the night before.


are the ypool miners getting extreme rejection rates like over at beeeer the last two days?

http://mrx.im/pts.php

looks like in 15 hours from the time of this edit, the difficulty will double on PTS?

does clpts have a 10 second timer on if shares are rejected or not? because with heavy server load it seems to take more than 10 seconds for shares found to get submitted and maybe thats why the rejection rate is so high because its hitting the 10 second timer? just taking a stab trying to solve this issue...

Don't believe so.  Unfortunately CLPTS for YPool doesn't report an overall rejection rate. :'(

Invalid share
Reason: Share data time overflow


^ I get this for every share I find on my windows 7 machine running 2x R9 280X, this isn't seen on any of my Linux rigs. Your windows Beeeeer version works properly though. Maybe a pool issue?

allows you to change voltage unless your card is factory locked in which case the BIOS will have to be edited?

depends... do you have a 2GB or 4GB...

2GB use 1 thread
4GB use 2 thread

I've found -a 1 to be the best but some folks say they've tried the others and have different results, so the best thing to do, try each one for a half hour and see which one did best for you...

Which makes no sense since OD is activated because both cards (r9 290) are OC and works perfectly. Fan speed is also manually adjusted by command.

Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: Mr305 on February 25, 2014, 01:31:56 pm
I say YES,
because mt.gox is offline the BTC is broken, butI think in a few weeks is going up again. So you need at the Moment 37 PTS for 1 BTC, Bitstamp take the lead I think.
I have 1x HD7870 2GB 1500 CPM and 1x R9 270X 4GB 1900 CPM. Tomorrow I get 2 Sapphire 280X makes ca. 7000 CPM, I jave Money to Invest so no Problem for me, but In Germany the electricity
is expensive. With 10000 CPM you make in 30 Days ca. 33 PTS. So its time to make a lot of PTS. When you have 1 Card, forget everything its Gold Rush. When you have a few Rigs and Money to invest you can make Profit. The Time of the BTC comes, in Berlin is the first Germanys BTC Cash Terminal. You can pay with BTC, but you cant MINE BTC.
Is there another good COIN? Dogecoin, Primecoin I dont know.....

PTS is great I think. Kind Regards from Germany

I used to be on W8.1 and switched to linux to "insta gain" 1k cm/card. Anyway when on Windows I was able to tweak the voltage of both the cards (saphhire and gigabyte) using MSI AB. So I was wondering why I can't on linux whereas it seems people are ok with that on their side. But I guess r9 29x and not well supported. Only 7xxx and r9 up to 28x series at this time...

Hm, ypool is heavily DDOSed today and something does not work because the miner shows 0 cpm. I do not know whether this is a bug in the miner. Could you send me additional information about your system via PM so I can investigate this issue?
A workaround would be to modify your script so that it restarts the miner every time it exits: while true; do ./clpts -u aloec1.pts -p x -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3 -a 0; done
EDIT I forgot a 'do'

Hi, thank you for this miner. With ubuntu i have a problem.

After few time the miner stop to work. I have "Connection to server lost - Reconnect in 45 seconds" but the miner close in my console without try reconnect.

If you can help me please.

Today I tried power meter to compare PTS and scrypt mining. I have in one rig 3x7950 and 1x7970 and in PTS mining they consume 800W with scrypt 900W.
In the second rig I have 3x280x and with PTS mining it consumes 560W, with scrypt 760W.
All of my cards are tuned via BIOS and undervolted. Undervolting gives you 30W and 5-7 degrees Celsius less per card, which is acceptable for the labor to edit BIOS-es.
My 280x are running at 1020/1500 with 1131mv, even to overclock them to 1090/1500 with 1225mv it doesn't give me more CPM.

Having only reference cards (2x r9 290 from sapphire and gigabyte), I can tell on my side:

- gpu clock: 1125
- mem clock: 1300 (but 1270 seems more stable)
- undervolt: -44mV in MSI AB
- fan speed: 63% (ambient room temp around 20-21 degres Celcius) to maintain temp of the cards around 63 degres celcius

A bit loud but works well xD

There is no clear-cut answer to that as it all depends on your GPU(s). Literarlly,
even between same make/brand/model the ASICs can very. Also, make sure you
have the powersupply(s) to handle the increase as jumping up clocks a little makes
BIG differences in power draw... which is why it's smart to under-volt but then again
if you're under linux (like myself) then the capability doesn't quite exist..

Having said that, my MSI R9 290 Gaming GPUs are over clocked to 1050Mhz/1350Mhz
with PowerTune @ 20% and I keep the fans on constant 85%. The rig run stable though
gets a little toasty with temp ranges from 74C to 81C. It would have been worse had I not
taken off the factory thermal grease and replaced with mucho better grease. Any clocks past
that I found to be unstable given my make/brand/model of GPU.

LAST IMPORTANT NOTE : I run clpts at those clocks. If you try those clocks with cgminer for
other scrypt mining, you better have 350W+ for each card. NaN's clpts is very efficient and
doesn't run as hot as cgminer's less efficient algo. Good luck!

I'm seriously impressed that you can get GPU memory clocks that high, specially with stock voltages. I'm also seriously impressed that you can run the GPU clock at 1100 and keep the card so cool at such a low fan speed, and all of that at 250W per card. Is this really a R9 290?

Do you guys have any ideas of my problem...

Basically, when I pair up my 7850 and 7950, I can run the 7950 on its own and it gives me around 2500 CPM when I have set it to 1,1 cores. When I pair up my 7950 with another 7950, both of them produce around 700 CPM when I set them to 0,0 and 1,1 respectively. When set these back to 0 and 1 - i.e. single cores, I get them to produce around 1800 CPM.... Any ideas what is wrong? Both the 7950s have 3GB memory. My 7850 has only 2GB memory so I run it on single core but it still produces a respectable 1200CPM

I finally got it all working and overclocked. I'm getting 4150cpm with these settings on stock volts. This set of script will overclock your 290/or 290x.

The first line is the core clock, memory clock, powerlevel, and powertune I believe. The max was 2 on the last number. I tried that but a 1 worked better for me so I stuck with that. If I'm doing something that will blow up my card, someone let me know. Temps are under 50c on core all the time and the VRM sinks are barely warm to the touch. When I was on Windows my VRM's were under 50c on VRM1 and under 40 on VRM2, so I should be good.

Here's my OC config if someone wants to try it on theirs:

aticonfig --adapter=1 --od-setclocks=1110,1415,150,1

aticonfig --adapter=1 --od-commitclocks
aticonfig --adapter=1 --od-gettemperature
aticonfig --adapter=1 --od-getclocks

this is for Linux of course.

Try chaging to adapter 0 instead of 1. Mine would only work with "1", but its in the 0 slot. I have no idea why, so yours might react totally different. IDK.

so it might look like this instead: (or you could even try 2 I suppose also) you may also need lower values. I seem to have a decent card here.

Hate to break the news to you folks but the aticonfig/amdconfig does NOT work for more than one
adapter. Sure there is the --adapter=x or --adapter=all but it only ever works for the default card.
Must be a bug in the software and perhaps next ATI Catalyst will fix it.

aticonfig --adapter=1 --od-setclocks=1110,1415,150,1

It is know that powertune values can vary from -20% to 20%. What do I have to expect if I use the following; Any chance cards will consumme less power without reducing stock clocks?

aticonfig --adapter=all --od-setclocks=x,y,90,1

I'm running stock clocks and stock voltage (but all cards are powertune certified and have unlock Bios).

I'm working on it, but the R9 290(X) weakness in Windows is not my fault. It is something driver related.

can you release a version without pool restriction?
everyday ypool will be down at least 50% of time (due to ddos, according to the moderator from ypool) and I also don't like ypool's restriction of minimal 1 pst for automatic payout
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: NaN on February 27, 2014, 11:12:46 pm
Again, I'm working on it. This requires some major code rewrites.
Edit I'm testing one version with only one protocol now. Additionally protocols will be implemented soon.

Post by: lilunxm12 on February 27, 2014, 11:23:47 pm
I didn't noticed that it involves some major code rewrites. I was assuming it's a piece of cake since pools use the same xpt protocol.
Sorry NaN

Post by: NaN on February 27, 2014, 11:36:57 pm
I meant the pool fallback and I'm targeting more stable code because I do not have enough time to support people all the day. I have only a xpt6 version, which ypool does use. But all other pools use xpt5. I hacked something together but I'm not sure whether this is stable because 1GH has major problems with this version. Only ptspool.com seems to be ok but shows sometimes strange behaviour, too.

this argument would hold more water if the people you were 'supporting' werent paying you  much more than you'd make as a salaryman or an hourly wage doing the same type of work.  how about a 'i'm busy' instead?  surely you dont expect people to increase the 'donation' rate

for all the ppl complaining, just switch miners.  i have on all but one gpu (cause i'm like .15 short of a payout, hah)

You should state your words more accurately...

"You think PTS will be canceled and you think that there is no reason to mine them... "

Please take time to understand that undervaluing other's ideas as less profitable ways of making money does not always represent what you think to be obvious.

Scrypt 50% premined ... will get distributed over all iceland population in 20 days or so.. until there price will go high.. .. after.. it will drop like a lead stone..

Diff is very high right now.. and it's difficult to get coins.. and there are too many pools that make even more difficult to get centralized distribution of coins..

DACs are still there and many will come. PTS will eventually speed up again.. once the diff goes down.. due the lack of mining effort after the low interest.

You are assuming too much if you guys think that PTS is dead... just an advice... I am not telling you that it is the most profitable coin... just telling you that the coin will still be doing some nasty stuff...

So I'm running the miner on Win7 either the beer or ypool the latest 1.4+ 2.2+ using 13.12 and 3x R9 290X. After 3-5 hours  (or sometimes right away)the CPM will just start to slow down and drop till it reaches nothing. If I restart the miner it will go back to normal and the same thing will happen. Any idea's on how to fix this issue? It's annoying me to hell.

The output of the program will also just list the CPM and the falling numbers right after another and nothing else.

Post some more details.. for me it looks fine.
Is it something related to your ISP/router/scheduler? Can you try it from a different ISP? Place?

It's quite strange the 5/6 hours time frame... try to check what could be happening by that window of time. Are you mining both pools same time and having the same exact issue at the exact same time?

Also investigate since when you are having this issue..

Basic skills of troubleshooting does not involve any technical skills.. only.. parts exclusions...

It's not always 5-6 hours sometimes it's shorter sometimes it's longer sometimes within a few min. I Just used that as an example. It seems like it's totally random when it happens. I had the output for the monitor on a display port cable then I thought perhaps there's an issue with recognizing a monitor after it turns itself off then I swapped to a dvi and it seemed to work fine for a while then the issue came back.

I'm really puzzled by this as it doesn't make any sense as to why it will just mess up like this.

Just keep a third window.. pinging the mining host you are miming to.. and you will see if it is something because of you.. or not.

NOTE: LOG it, with timestamps.. cause it's going to be a big output! And use different workers for different GPUs performances..

I started up my miner yesterday for an hour and my 7970 is only getting ~1600 col/min where it was getting ~2900col/min before. Windows 7 64, HD7970 . Anyone know why this happened? If difficulty drops, I'd like to mine again but would like to at the col/min levels I was getting before.

Your software can support other pools such as

These pools are supported xpt protocol
You can charge the cost of the software

Oh, I published the binaries instead of the LLVMIR code... Perhaps you can just use the old gpuhash_* files. I'm working on a fix. edit: fixed

That looks fine. The login messages are in your case due to developer fee ("[INFO] @ 12:37:13 | mining 36s for developer" and "[INFO] @ 12:37:44 | mining 30min for user". After your snippet there should be no login messages for half an hour. Some pools sometimes close the connection but then "connection closed" appears.

Perhaps this issue is caused by the driver. Which driver version do you use? I used Catalyst 14.2 beta to compile to LLVMIR because with the latest drivers people got some nasty warnings when using the older versions. As workaround you can try to use the old gpuhash_* files.

But the 7950 speed is down,from 5800 to 4200,2* 7950,looks the 14.3 get down,used 0.22 the same.which driver is good for 1.0 on 7950?

I do not have access to non R9 290 cards (the day after tomorrow I will have one). If the old gpuhash files have faster performance then it is an issue of the new code, but I only removed some overhead and I didn't change the algorithm. Otherwise the newer drivers caused the performance drop. Or did I misunderstand you and both versions are slower with Catalyst 14.3?

I will wait before switching 'til you get your hands on a Tahiti card and fix perf if needed.

The new version v1.0 with multi-pool support and pool fallback. I'm sorry that the miner is late but I had not much time in the last weeks.

Thanks man...

Does it need the new beta AMD SDK?

I am getting this now.. (with previous miner I had to do nothing):

If I switch the "gpuhash_*" files for the "clpts-v0.1.4_win_x86-64" version... they work fine. Same performance.. my best run over the 290X is using -a 1 (not 0)

No stratum/getwork support? I was hoping for those so I could use the this miner for NoirShares as well. Would you be interested in supporting NoirShares along with PTS? It's the same PoW algo, but it's lacking xpt pools.

i have hd7970 3gb on ypool.net win7 64x 1000 mhz core and 1325 mhz memory and newest beta driver from amd

with v0.2.2 was the sharerate 175-180 share/h option a1 and 1 thread

with v1.0a now i get 250-275 share/h preference is the same

the miner reconect the pool every 15 minutes? Thats right?

after 8 hours 2421 c/m v1.0a


nrs or stratum support would be great
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: NaN on March 26, 2014, 06:48:25 pm
I'm working on stratum support. Which pool do you use because the miner should reconnect by itself only every 30min but then twice within 36s if you do not use ypool? If ypool is used then the miner does not reconnect by itself unless the server closes the connection or an error occurs. As I mentioned earlier some servers close the connection occasionally.

To give some feedback:
Running fine, but only at catalyst 14.3beta (as told before).
I got 7150 cpm with 2x 280x @ default clock, win7-64 at ypool (-t 0,0,1,1 -a 2)
Thank you for the good work!  :)

i'm using ypool.net too. is about separately every 15 minutes, I think

clpts_x86-64.exe -o 6 -u workername.1 -p x -t 0.0 -a 1


and 15min late

That's not an issue of the miner because the connection is closed by ypool.net.

It is the same "issue" with the old miner, but it did not report any reconnects because it is based on the jhProtominer code.

./clpts:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version "GLIBCXX_3.4.19' not found(required by ./clpts)


So I have to use 290 in ubuntu with version 0.22

Is it some driver version error?

The new version v1.0 with multi-pool support and pool fallback. I'm sorry that the miner is late but I had not much time in the last weeks.

Is failover the only new update to the miner? Because my col/min dropped about 30% with this new one and share/min was even lower.
Which graphics card do you use and what is your driver? On my 280x the Catalyst 13.12 was much faster than Catalyst 14.2 beta and 14.3 beta. I removed some overhead so that I expect that the new version should be a little bit faster than the old one. Also let it run long enough to get good statistics.

i was using v.022 flawless @linux but when i try to launch clpts-v1.0a_linux_x86-64_Catalyst14 the miner just opens and closes .My .sh file
#!/bin/bash

./clpts -o 0,6 -u ozzy.PTS_1 -p x -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 -a 2

what am i doing wrong?

You're using a pool that requires a valid payout address (-o 0). The correct syntax would be
./clpts -o 0,6 <payout-address> -u ozzy.PTS_1 -p x -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 -a 2

I used C++11 for the new miner. Is your glibc up to date? Perhaps I should revert to boost and statically link it. Which distro do you use?
EDIT: Oh, the correct syntax is

As you may have noticed there are different files for Catalyst 13.12 and Catalyst 14.x drivers. You have to use the *Catalyst13 files for Catalyst 13.12

NaN wanted you to understand that in his download links... there are 2 set of files (miner+gpu_hash files), ones are for 13.12 drivers.. the other for the beta 14.x version. So you should download the correct version to run over the correct driver you are using.

The gpu_hash switch trick was before he posted that fix.

You have libstdc++6-4.4 installed and probably have multiple sources.. with different names of the same package... try to remove all the libstdc++ and dependent packages and then install them again.. but using only one source. This is not a miner problem.. it's an OS config know how...

If you are uncomfortable with ubunto.. try other OSs you are ok with... you have fedora, centos, windows.. etc etc...

Otherwise.. post more details. (the more you can get)

Hi folks....

You have to understand that if you want help you have to give back something.. just saying that it does not work.. doesn't help anyone nor it will be enough for anyone from the community to help.

Try to be logic... when you have a problem.. share the errors, configs, when problem started to happen, when it did not.. etc etc...

There are no magic within devs...  they are all hard working geeks =)

Did you try to use v1.1? If it does not work I can give you a statically linked version of the miner so there are no dependencies on OS-libraries. The disadvantage is that the binaries become several MB large.

I used C++11 for the new miner. Is your glibc up to date? Perhaps I should revert to boost and statically link it. Which distro do you use?
EDIT: Oh, the correct syntax is
./clpts -o 0,6 Pezz4JUPfpAFTSSwWgp1TMpCcS1YvEqVsn -u ozzy.PTS_1 -p x -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 -a 2
yea i also tried the ./clpts -o 0,6 Pezz4JUPfpAFTSSwWgp1TMpCcS1YvEqVsn -u ozzy.PTS_1 -p x -t 0,0,1,1,2,2 -a 2

but it didnt work .And i dont know if i have the latest c++11 i dont know much about linux (i am using ubuntu 12.04 )

Which Catalyst version is installed? Are there multiple cards installed (I'm wondering what * - Default adapter means)? If there are multiple cards you have to run sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial and then reboot. Furthermore, is there a running X-server because OpenCL does only work without X-server, if there is a not too old Catalyst version installed and if the application is run with sudo (that is not best practice because of security reasons)? Could you post the output of dmesg | grep -i fglrx?
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: Alec246 on April 01, 2014, 12:30:47 am
Just one card. The Motherboard also has an onboard adapter, which is not in use. So I don't think it has any influence.

Catalyst 14.3 Beta.

How do I know if X-Server is running?

Could you tell me what this line of command does? I just want to know what I'm messing with!

Thanks
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS miner released
Post by: NaN on April 01, 2014, 12:46:55 am
Is the onboard adapter a AMD or Intel adapter? Perhaps you can PM me your xorg.conf.
If ps -A | grep X shows any non-void output then a X-server is running. Did you install one Catalyst version first and then another? This could wreck the driver if the old version is not removed cleanly. Another possibility is that you did not install all necessary packages before installing the driver. This guide helps http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Saucy_Installation_Guide but make sure you use the right code-name of your Ubuntu version.

Switch to linux. Run cgminer/sgminer and set your powertune to +20, now do incremental overclocking until you find your stable clocks. I currently run at 1100/1250 (Core/Memory) and I get about ~4500 c/m per 290X.

If you used the 64bit binary (clpts), then you could try to set the DISPLAY variable via export DISPLAY=:0 and to run the miner with sudo. This is required if there is no running X server.

upcpu pool supports NRS now, would you please add this pool into clpts?

the pool server is xnrspool.ucpool.net port:8080 ~ 8087

thanks.

Normally I'd rather not mess with a running system, but is the upgrade to Catalyst14 really that big of an improvement?

You must have a "test" system.. then.. you move to the miners..

And indeed it's better..

After changing to latest... Catalyst available.. I got...
290X (2 thread) - 4679 col/m (from 4579 for 30 min)...
270X (1 thread) - 2465 col/m (from 2279 for 30 min)...

still stabilizing...


EDIT: I have a X58 Board overclocked... and I found it.. limiting in terms of some CPU+GPU memory intensive communication... so.. I get probably lower results than others...

NaN... great work.. I found this version.. of catalyst 14 with more room for improvement than with catalyst 13... I think they got the power usage better... so.. more room for overclocking... under same col/m performance.

I am still not sure if there something "way badly behaving" with the CPU+GPU communication under PTS/NRS... with the Bitcoin miners.. I get much higher temps.. and less stress over CPU.. much higher TEMPs.. but better (lower) with Catalyst 14 again... so.. I might guess there is more efficient code.. running over the driver.. still.. there is room for improvement from AMD...

Looking at the comm.. of the driver.. there are too much repetition... from AMD compared with NVIDIA... this is... what I found to be the main "lack of HP force" from AMD compared with NVIDIA.. but apart from that.. the drivers.. history.. are way better! I think.. that.. AMD is trying to play the APU card with this issue in time... to overcome their excessive communication.. (in my opinion). NVIDIA.. is somehow playing this type of game since versions 500.. already...

well.. I like what I see.. =) heeeee =)

I think I've also got some bandwidth issues with my 280X, as a tradeoff my temperature and power usage is very low in comparison to full load of the gpu.

I setup a cheap motherboard + cpu in a remote and cool part of my house and I'm dangling the gpu outside of the case with an pci-riser-cable, so those 2 factors combined might be limiting me to well below the 5000 value mentioned in the first post. Then again I'm running without any overclock, don't know if that has a large impact on the collision-speed.

No, there should be no pci-e bandwidth limitations because only a few bytes and the program code is transferred over pci-e. The quoted performance was for a factory overclocked 280X, so subtract 10% to get a performance estimate for a reference card. I used Catalyst 13.12 because Catalyst 14.4 was slower. Could you post your command line options?

Yes.. i acknowledge that.. NaN.. but my overclock simply... slowed down my timings plus some errors/instability I might be having... due to high voltage.. CPU+GPU latency... to get better CPU+RAM throughput... and CPU overclock... so.. in my case.. and my board.. I know I have some limitations.. but.. I have done some tests over the other boards (Zxx) and the performance quite goes further up.. with same GPU cards...

Another big detail.. is that I am using a test system with a CPU+BOARD+RAM.. that is running for............ well.. since 2009... 24/7... only the CPU changed...  once... free upgrade... to xeon. So.. it might have some issues.. It's ok.. for a 30 day... loop (system restart + WC water refill + windows updates + other hardware experiences)..


I might have a new test board.. by August.. or September... for free.. so by then.. I will have updated performance metrics... tests... tuning.. etc... one thing is for sure.. I have never had.. a system that could last so much!.. nor I think I will have it again.. 5 years!! and counting!

keep up... catalyst 14 is only good for 290X.. or 290.. the others.. are still optimized for catalyst 13... but.. things... will change.. =) new specs... of 3xx series... will come by end of 2014 =) I found them promising.. since AMD.. understood  finally! that DP.. has to go UP UP UP..

I've installed Catalyst 14, downloaded the correct version of clpts for catalyst 14 and I'm now averaging over 5000 c/m.

So a huge improvement compared to using Catalyst13, almost doubling what I got with 1.1 before, thanks.

Yeah, I thought it was strange that you weren't getting a higher average then me. AMD linux drivers are not faster than the windows counterparts and I'm not overclocking my 280X, so it had to be something else.

NaN, do NVIDIA/AMD cards... profit from DMA access for multicard miner implementation?.. will have tons of memory for memory allocation. plus.. threads can be NUMA so... is it possible to design NRS/PTS algos with advantage on this?

SHA is more unlike i know.. but scrypt might have it's advantages...

EDIT: can you share with me a profiled data of your miner running over a 290/290X card? or do you want me to do run it?.. I would like to see if there is place for implementing something like this.. if you are interested.. give me a ping.

you have 4 optional codes to use with the miner.. using -a flag... you have 0, 1, 2 or 3...

Usually 0 is for 290/290X and 1 for others... but it depends a bit on the OS/Board/CPU... your setup in general..

I get around 9.406 sh/m (4768 col/m) over the 290X.. but I would say.. this is not the usual value.. you should get above 5200 col/m... I have something preventing.. my card to pump... (acknowledged).

While among many things I might think that could impact mining for algos that do not depend on CPU memory. I am still thinking that my explanation to why some have ~5200 and we have about ~4700 with a 290X cards.... is PCIe tech...

PCIe 3.0 has better encoding than PCIe 2.. thus.. costs less cpu cycles.. and makes GPU data to offload better CPU command instructions. I can't prove this right now.. but as I already did some experiments.. over boards that had PCIe 3.. I remember my results.. and they where.. easy better.. for SHA it might not make much difference.. but for scrypt and alike algos.. it makes.

Remember.. it's not the throughput that matter in crypto.. its the latency and command efficiency per Hz or pipeline cycle.

I also have PCIe 2.0.. does anyone has PCIe 2.0 and 5200 col/s with a 290X to prove me wrong.. =) Thanks

No, there should be no pci-e bandwidth limitations because only a few bytes and the program code is transferred over pci-e. The quoted performance was for a factory overclocked 280X, so subtract 10% to get a performance estimate for a reference card. I used Catalyst 13.12 because Catalyst 14.4 was slower. Could you post your command line options?

As NaN said, it is very unlikely pci-e bandwidth is the issue. Quite possible it may have something to do with gpu and memory clocks, the relation between those two seem to be very important. I'm averaging closer to 5100 than 5200 for each of my 280X cards, but have not messed with overclocking and such, mostly because I haven't found an easy way to do it on a headless linux system.

And I agree... not bandwith.... latency (EDIT: to be more precise.. it's not latency.. is efficiency in this case...)!.. PCIe 3 has less overhead than PCIe 2... that causes CPU to use more o less.. cpu cycles to command processes to do things over PCIe communication (in average).
The more GPUs you have for example.. the more PCIe overhead you will have. THis of course is very low... but my indication is that it causes some differences... My 290X already did >210% of what my 270X does (PCIe3.0)... now it does <200% (195% at the moment).. using the same miners and GPU clocks.. only CPU/board/ram was different. Shame I can't do testes right now.. with the new miner...

But.. a few more months.. and a new board.. and CPU will come =) let's be patient =)

I'm not seeing a very heavy cpu-load for clpts though, even though I'm not using pci-3 for every card. Oh I've tried the "-a 1" option again and that does seem to be a lot faster than -a 0, but it also takes longer to get up to speed and fluctuates more.

It looks like I'm now averaging very close to 5200 c/m, with my 280Xs, with some up and down swings.

yes.. I found the same about -a 1 and -a 0... but still 0 is faster for 290X

But regarding cpu-load... you will not see it.. that's not how it works.. just because you don't have cpu load.. does not mean.. an application is not being the most efficient.. possible.. it's all about other things... like code.. and what tech are you using about hardware... number nowdays.. just serve to sell hardware.. you need more.. to understand how you get to a result.. actually.. you need just one thing.. math...  =)

While among many things I might think that could impact mining for algos that do not depend on CPU memory. I am still thinking that my explanation to why some have ~5200 and we have about ~4700 with a 290X cards.... is PCIe tech...

PCIe 3.0 has better encoding than PCIe 2.. thus.. costs less cpu cycles.. and makes GPU data to offload better CPU command instructions. I can't prove this right now.. but as I already did some experiments.. over boards that had PCIe 3.. I remember my results.. and they where.. easy better.. for SHA it might not make much difference.. but for scrypt and alike algos.. it makes.

Remember.. it's not the throughput that matter in crypto.. its the latency and command efficiency per Hz or pipeline cycle.

I also have PCIe 2.0.. does anyone has PCIe 2.0 and 5200 col/s with a 290X to prove me wrong.. =) Thanks

Hello, may be you are right, however, I do not think so.
My 2x280x cards is working on mode x1 v1.1. with 30cm extenders ( to pcie x16, second to pcie x1) with old mainboard.
Making  ~9980 -:- 10060 c/m, i.e. ~4990-:-5030 c/m on each card.
I'm not saying that there is no logic in what you're saying, but in practice it doesn't matter, important operations are performed inside the video cards.
Rather may affect the rejected/discard percent of work.
However I don't have a chance to check it, don't have a new hardware ;)

you works with linux?

I tested very long then the option-a3. and I'm surprised this is very stable and just as fast as option-a1. Maybe something even faster. exactly I can not say unfortunately.
because the diff has changed dramatically. I tested now again the-a1 option. for c / m is almost always identical only sh / m changed. I hope the diff is now equal times.

@Ykw
From some hours I am running on coin that I don't want to break the miner :)
However this experiment I've done in the past, no big difference on running separate process (one instances to each device).
I remember that I got a little worst collision summary than one instance on all devices (-t 0,0,1,1.....e.t.c.).

@Mario241077
You are right, overclocking the CPU/Bus, gives little advantage...
Also if you like experiments, try to give more high process priority, and see the results ;)

I am at the moment on Windows Server 2012, the miner for this coin that mining  now, no source code or build for Linux :-(
Anyway, I didn't run clpts miner under Linux, I had some issues with the libraries there...
Don't believe there is a big difference Linux VS Windows, my experience with other miners indicates that...
No remember where, I saw that "-a 1" option is for optimizing 280x, "-a 2" is for 290x, but may be wrong....

I did the experiment for you :)
So, on screenshot you can see the vga1 that is connected on pcie 16x first cmd window, on second cmd window is vga2 on pcie 1x.
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3YMX5z3l5htQ21UbGgtZzZ3Vlk/edit?pli=1
There is, however, one catch ;)
The vga1 is sapphire 280x dual oc elpida memomry
Vga2 is Asus 280x  direct cu 2 Hynix memory ;)
I think that Asus is better vga ;)
Anyway, in principle, there is no difference from that of which slot the card is attached.

Very nice... thanks for the time...

There is only one chance to know for sure.. switch cards..

My 290X does not change much with memory... frequency.. but timming would be a different matter... so.. i can give some credit for what you say.. but still... not sure if the huge difference is only card... assuming you have all frequencies the same..

As I mentioned many times, the "slowness" of R9 290(X) seems to be caused by the driver. Every kernel executes much faster than on a R9 280X, but the card (or the driver) is not able to overlap the execution of the kernels like it is the case with the 280X. On Windows the 3 kernels are completely processed sequentially, so the Linux version is faster because at least one kernel is able to overlap with another kernel. Perhaps a different set of kernels which only need less than 1GB memory will circumvent this behaviour, but I can't give any guarantees because the R9 290(X) has different ACEs than the 280X, too.

Has Mantle the ability to get higher performance? Can it be compiled for this? Or does it need to be "ported" to this SDK?
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS/NRS miner released
Post by: NaN on May 08, 2014, 07:14:57 pm
Mantle is an API for the graphics pipeline and we are doing compute workloads. Besides, the best API does not help if the driver is slow.

That seems to be a driver error because the memory addresses are negative. But I'm wondering why the addresses are 32bit long. Do you use a 64bit Windows (I guess 8.1) and which Catalyst driver do you use?

@NaN,
Obviously with 5 card modification works, at least that is written in the previous  billyboy402 post :)
So, this is driver error, you can’t use more than 5 card on one mainboard, driver not support this.
(try to find in forum modified ati driver (edited inf file) that support 6 cards)

That is my previous question: in  is this configuration with six card, works with other miners with other coin mining?

This ART value is important for NAN
the lower is better

you need min 1200 shares for an optimal result, more is better for correct average value on. you reach only after a very long time and many shares. let it run

    EDIT: I think Mario241077 is right here.. it takes a lot more time to stabilize.. but at the end.. the result is better, in average I would say (still testing with GPU usage for main adapter).

NOTE: Just noticed that I need no more to switch displays to activate the GPUs without screen connected. =) I am not sure if it was with this new beta. Very handy. This might have been introduced with the Mantle version.

Disclaimer: My results might differ a bit in max/min ration because I am also using CPU to other purposes.. but leaving at least 50% of the logical cores free. I will try to set the max I see and the min.. after stabilization. The results include using the 290X for the display adapter.

you need about 1200 shares for an optimal result

Yes.. for -a 3 specially... for the -a 1 and 0 it was somehow quicker to stabilize or the result approaches faster to the stable one (more than 4h running.. with max/min values)..

I can confirm a very big boost in performance from the 14.6 Catalyst on ubuntu linux, last I checked I was getting over 5900 c/m for each 280X with -a 0, it still hasn't stabilized yet, while I was averaging around 5200 c/m with the 14.4 catalyst version.

What is the ART over the miner?

How is it measured...
Title: Re: fast AMD OpenCL PTS/NRS miner released
Post by: Ykw on June 10, 2014, 03:45:43 am
For the ones that use the GPU for multiple purposes... (and only for 290/X models) i found out that using "-a 3" it's actually a more performer mode for mining... but also more prioritizing for the same realm. Giving you little usage for other multipurpose activities: games, video accelerated streaming... and everything that uses about less than 50% of your the GPU.

I found that the best option for multipurpose/mining is "-a 0".... as I have been using till now without problems. The observation taken is simple:

"The mining is running over the background.. and when I start watching a film with GPU acceleration, it crackles a bit until it adapts to the new workload.. then it settles just right for it.." - using for example "splash PRO EX".

Using "-a 3" you will experience a millisecond lag.. periodically... let's say.. less than half second period, where your eye experience a freeze over the frame.

Is this true for newer versions of CPU/BOARDS/RAM etc?... I have a X58 with XEON 4Cores and 1600 DDR3.

Disclaimer... This is a result of several software and hardware experiences.. ones more noticeable than others... but.. they all conclude that the most adaptable choice is the one I mention (-a 0).

Just found something very appealing for users of 290/X.... and above...

Summer is coming and I am waiting for my AC upgrade... in order to run overclocked GPUs and CPUs.. without burning at home.. so.. super experiments.. come to place.. where you try to lower the temps at all cost!

I have set the 290X (via AMD driver).. to -50% power.. and -47.x% GPU clock... and xarammmmm the results! AMAZIMG!!!

This is... brutal efficiency! Temps when from 72 ºC -> 60 ºC (on die with over 28ºC temps ambient)!! The current AMPs went even further!.. 82 -> 60 ºC!!! Power consumption varies.. as the card is constantly changing clocks... but.. in average.. is a lot less.. I would say.. 40% less power consumption.. So.. guys..! more viability to 290/X GPUs than with the older ones.. the 270X can't do the same...

But I would like to ear from your results... mines are like this:

Code: [Select]
13:37:17 | 4256 c/m | 8.366 sh/m | VL: 5742 (98.98%) | RJ: 56 (0.97%) | ST: 3 (0.05%) | ART: 52.5 ms

Do you use two threads per GPU (i.e. -t 0,0)? Does the GPU throttle and do you run Catalyst 13.12 or the newest Catalyst 14.6 (which is faster than Catalyst 13.12)?

the program will crash and quit .

why ?
me too. Pls advise.
I'm working on clpts-1.3, which should fix this issue. But as workaround one could use two instances of clpts, i.e. the first instance running on GPU 0 and 1, and the second on GPU 2 and 3.

one of my rids only four 280X ,and it can run with  the command like this

clpts_x86-64 -o 6 -u xxx.xxx:xxx -t 0,1,2,2,3,3 -a 0

but when i change it to this

clpts_x86-64 -o 6 -u xxx.xxx:xxx -t 0,1,1,2,2,3,3 -a 0  or
clpts_x86-64 -o 6 -u xxx.xxx:xxx -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3 -a 0

the program will crash and quit .

why ?

good news and Thank a lot....
please fix the speed reduce and can not return its right hash after re-connecting pool. Because sometime my rigs lose connection to pool, and only get 1/2 speed after getting network again. I have to re-start your miner manually.

I released clpts-v1.3. It resolves some issues and supports GPUs with 1GB RAM (see https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2598.0 and read the README  ;D)

Good work man!

could you check a readme file file on -g parameter, clearly said i check the readme and don`t understand how to run(( i will use old one what have -t parameter
also it will be good to have an example.but in all archives.
also i would like to know what is current speed on amd 290? - my shows 4300

Performance numbers without details on OS, Catalyst version and configuration are pretty useless, but 4300 cpm is slow if the newest drivers are used and if the GPU does not run into thermal throttling. The Linux and Windows drivers have totally different characteristics.

I hope that I can explain the use of the -g parameter with some examples. It controls the number of threads which are run on each GPU. Let's assume that you used -t 0,0 previously. That means that you run 2 threads on the device with ID 0. Therefore the new syntax would be -d 0 -g 2. -t 0,0,1,1,2,2,3,3 is equivalent to -d 0-3 -g 2 and -t 0,0,0,1,2,3,3 would become -d 0-3 -g 3,1,1,2. Using the newest Catalyst version on Windows, I have observed that spawning 4 threads per R9 290 and -a 2 gives a significant performance boost (-g 4 -a 2). Please note that the -d parameter is optional. If it is not specified than all AMD GPUs are used by clpts. You can still use the -t parameter but people with many GPUs per rig reported problems and something like -t 0,0,0,0,1,1,1,1 instead of -d 0,1 -g 4 is not convenient.

Ok so if i have 3 gpu in the rig my option will be so
-d 0-3 -a 2 -g 4,4,4

i have win 7 64 catalist 14.6 8 gb ram
with new parameters i write upper i have 5000 cpm om card(stock 947/1250 elpida)
and what cpm did you get?

@Mario241077: Thanks for sharing your performance numbers. Does the R9 290X crash if you use -g 4 -a 2? -a 0 and -a 1 use more than 1GB RAM per thread and will therefore crash with -g 4. -a 2 and -a 3 use ~900MB RAM per thread. P.S. You may combine the two instances by using -d 0-1 -g 2,4 -a 0,2 so that the 7970 runs with -g 2 -a 0 and the 290x with -g 4 -a 2. You will get separate stats for each card and you can compare the ART value (less is better) to find your optimal config because it has less variance than the cpm value and the share rate.

yes if i use -a 2, on this card is my on this card is my screen

following happens! the memory of my PC loads up, the CPU goes to full load and the screen freezes! After a while I can move the mouse and the batch close.

PS: two separate batchs per card is faster

I'll still post the results

Your using the wrong binary. Most likely you have an older Catalyst 13.x driver installed. Download the *_Catalyst13 binary for your OS. If your driver is too old the miner will crash (Catalyst 13.12 and 13.11beta should work), but I recommend Catalyst 14.6 or newer because it's faster.

You may combine the two instances by using -d 0-1 -g 2,4 -a 0,2 so that the 7970 runs with -g 2 -a 0 and the 290x with -g 4 -a 2. You will get separate stats for each card and you can compare the ART value (less is better) to find your optimal config because it has less variance than the cpm value and the share rate.

yes if i use -a 2, on this card is my on this card is my screen

following happens! the memory of my PC loads up, the CPU goes to full load and the screen freezes! After a while I can move the mouse and the batch close.

PS: two separate batchs per card is faster

I'll still post the results
Ok, I only tested my R9 290 without an attached screen.

i think thats the problem... but so is my HD 7970 much faster

ypool had dropouts so I can post the results later ...

but two batch is faster, one per card..

You have overlooked my previous post:
Your using the wrong binary. Most likely you have an older Catalyst 13.x driver installed. Download the *_Catalyst13 binary for your OS. If your driver is too old the miner will crash (Catalyst 13.12 and 13.11beta should work), but I recommend Catalyst 14.6 or newer because it's faster.

I am using "AMD-Catalyst-14.7-RC1-Windows-July9" driver, I think it's a beta driver.

EDIT:  I install 14.7 RC3, and it worked, Thank you for the help.

Can someone show the proper setting for 290x with clpts 1.3?
I got around 6k cpm for 280x.But only around 5k5 cpm for 290x.
290x looks like the worse deal I've made.
