Title: GetWork Miner 130 HPM on 3.4Ghz i7 3x faster than coyote pool miner
Post by: bytemaster on November 13, 2013, 06:24:42 pm
https://github.com/InvictusInnovations/coyote_miner

This miner is 4x faster than the miner I was using with my pool and might be faster than ypool.   Give it a shot.  It does not work with with my mining pool as I want to support standard pools and encourage decentralization.   

We are working on a new mining pool to work with this miner.

Enjoy!

So is this purely a solo miner?

For now, though pools can be built around it.

Do you plan on incorporating these changes into your current pool?

Also did you miss some folders in your src?

I'm seeing that as a quad, so 3.4 x 4 = 13.6.

120 HPM / 13.6 = ~8.8 HPM/GHz

Not too shabby.  I've been doing some tests and managed to pull a steady ~7 HPM/GHz.

You have to let it run longer than that for an accurate measure because not all seeds produce the same number of results.   Let it finish the benchmark to get an accurate comparison.  Those are cumulative averages, not independent samples.

Make sure you pull the latest, it was missing in an earlier checkin.

If it's running correctly, should there be some text output?

hey bytemaster any idea about this error?
http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=573.msg5661#msg5661

i found this random file on the net and put it in that directory and it seems to compile.

http://www.iis.ee.ethz.ch/~sha3/gmu_sha2/simvectors/md_helper.c.html

So maybe your repo is just missing that file?

When I run it without arguments, it benchmarks.  But when I try to connect to localhost, it reports this:

Quote
./gw_miner localhost x y
/root/coyote_miner/bitcoin.cpp(88): Throw in function boost::property_tree::ptree bitcoin::detail::client::request(const string&)
Dynamic exception type: boost::exception_detail::clone_impl<bitcoin::exception>
std::exception::what: bitcoin::exception
[bitcoin::bitcoin_msg_*] = Response returned with status code 500


I installed boost 1.53 development and debug so that should include all the boost libraries.  Any ideas?

EDIT: stopping and starting bitcoind a few times and trying again resolves the issue.

Also, occasionally it will display hashes, but still say "ACCEPTED: 0."  Is this normal?

It looked like I was able to mine to the same computer over IP, but even though it was reporting a hashrate it was using 0% of the cpu, so I switched to each computer mining to their own wallet.

I'm seeing something worrisome, though.  A bunch of miners will simultaneously show that they calculated the exact same hash!  I imagine this implies there is a ton of duplicated effort.  I've seen this quite a few times.  Is there a way to get them to work on different problems?  If I connect them to the same wallet through IP, would that fix it?

i7-4770 (4GB,1 Chip) - 121 hpm (cpm??)
i7-3770 (8GB,2 Chip) - 132 hpm
Core 2 Duo - T6600 - 21 hpm

Interesting that the i7-3770 should outperform the i7-4770, I put this down to its memory being spread out over 2 chips.

Older machines achieve a much lower cpm obviously, but I think at reasonable power usage levels - so hoping we'll see large pools of old computers from individual miners, rather than capital intensive commercial mining.

I tried that, the wallet is OK as always, and neither the miner have any output nor the %CPU gains.
Looks like the miner failed to connect to the wallet but did not crash.
Also I am using the latest version of wallet.

Inside your .conf file if you have -rpcport inside, delete it. Restart wallet and try the mining client again. Make it something like this.

Hello everyone. I'm trying to run a miner and it does not work. Wallet run like a server.
My conffile is:
server=1
rpcuser=login
rpcpassword=pass
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
My bat-file is:
gw_miner.exe 127.0.0.1  -u login -p pass
pause
Its not work. I have this:


You should run the miner as: gw_miner.exe 127.0.0.1  login pass
and not as: gw_miner.exe 127.0.0.1  -u login -p pass

Solo mining is not profitable, if you use this you should have your own mini farm.

I have 15 macs, that combined only have the expectation to earn 1 block per day.   If you solo mine right now with a high end machine you should expect one block every 2 weeks.  Of course the difficulty will rise over 2 weeks and orphans are high, so solo mining is more like one block every month+. 

I just pushed a patch to gain another 10%

This miner is 4x faster than the miner I was using with my pool and might be faster than ypool.   Give it a shot.  It does not work with with my mining pool as I want to support standard pools and encourage decentralization.   

We are working on a new mining pool to work with this miner.

Enjoy!

I git pulled and recompiled, trying it out now, seems to be a bit faster.  Can you tell me though, is it usual that this miner should use such small amount of memory? It's only using about 1.5 GB of memory, can i increase this amount? will increasing it add any benefit to mining speed?

Increasing memory will hurt performance, due to increased cache misses.

Hi,
Thanks for the update and the great work. Would you mind giving some basic guidelines how to build your miner for windows.

Weird, i thought that protoshares were supposed to be very memory heavy.  Will the 1.5 GB requirement increase as the difficulty goes up?  What would be the most ideal setup for mining protoshares then? What is more important fast RAM or RAM timings? Is a large CPU Cache important?

Thanks!

We targeted 1 GB of memory to do the proof of work and to limit the amount of parallelism that you could employ with that 1 GB.   Unless you have more than 8 cores, that is all the memory required.   If you have 32 cores, then you will need 4 GB of memory.   So it scales with CPU, but adding more memory in itself does not help beyond a certain point.

I've tried for solo mine.
I'm managed to go through connection problems, but have a few nodes with dual Xeon 2450L (32 threads total) and I have a very low CPU usage - between 25 and 60%
I suppose the miner is not optimized for such CPU count, can anything be done on this?

Too bad this isnt really worth it anymore, would have needed that one a week ago -.-

Even with my 14 (physical) machines i only get to 1600 hpm which results in a block every 4 days, thats too much to be comfortable - might not even be a single block within diff retarget.

Started 4 instances. Alas, didn't get the 99% flat line on CPU usage or nowhere near it.
Even with 4 instances, getting aroung 200 hpm total from all ~75% cpu usage. A single 3930k goes to 180 hpm.

Launch your

./gw_miner.exe localhost user pass


Ok that didn't help me. How do I get this thing to mine at all? I can only start the bench mark and that is useless. I'm a noob and geek illiterate, please make it simple. I'm using win8 64 bit version i5 cpu I want to solo mine.
