I hate to necro bump but I received a $100 AWS credit.
I should be able to run an instance for quite a while for this it sounds like.
Any rough ideas on cost so I can stop it before the credit runs out?

I ran 100 instances at $0.27/hour - so $27/hour. $648/day. $20K/mo.

Roughly how much per month does it cost you to run?


I have a couple questions.
I can use AWS (Amazon) is there an easy setup for that service if I choose to go that direction?

That's what I use. When setting up your instance (I used Linux AMI (HVM) instance), under user data, paste this script:

#! /bin/bash
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/yam_miner
tar zxvf yam-yvg1900-M7k-linux64-sandy-bridge.tgz
cd yam-yvg1900-M7k-linux64-sandy-bridge
cd linux64-sandy-bridge
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/your_yam_config
./yam --config yam-mmc.cfg

User data is automatically run when the instance starts up. Thus, it will automatically connect to a pool and start mining. Obviously, setup your yam-config file beforehand, then add both the yam miner and yamconfig to your dropbox and edit the script with those URLs. With new yam releases, you may need to edit the folders the script opens (cd yam-yvg1900-M7k-linux64-sandy-bridge -> cd yam-yvg1900-M7m-linux64-sandy-bridge for yam 'm' version).

cc2.8xlarge uses sandy bridge architecture. All of the c3.#xlarge use haswell. Change your yam miner and edit the script as needed, depending on which miner you use.

I get ~34hpm with cc2.8xlarge. Feel free to ask any other questions.

I'll create an AMI for that and explain how to use it.

No, there's no optimized version for that architecture.

I do not know about which of the 2 architectures you talk about, but it seems that for the Azure one, there is not even a working version...

What's the output of
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "model name"

The os you choose won't make a (big) difference

At DigitalOcean the output is: QEMU Virtual CPU version 1.0

So far the best combination is Ubutu with nehalem

++++++++++++++++

At windows Azure the output is AMD Opteron (tm) Processor 4171 HE

Any ideas about the best combination?

Yeah, it depends on the CPU your cloud service uses. I use Amazon's previous-generation CPUs, which are sandy bridge. If yours are the newest, Haswell will probably be the best yam version to use. You can post here what CPU you are using (example Xeon ####) and I can tell you what architecture it is.

So far I'm testing at DigitalOcean. I tried to find what kind of CPUs they use but failed.

I test on "Ubuntu 13.10 x64" and 4 CPUs. Sandy-bridge failed, Ivy failed, Generic WORKS!

Will test Haswell, barcelona and nehalem now.

Please let me know if I should test any of the rest.

Also please let me know if it makes sence to test on delian.

Will report with my results!

Thank you!

1.: threads=0 uses all available cores, no need to change
2.: no idea what cpu they use. i'd advise you to test several versions on one box before

the letter is like the version number, m > k

You need to download the file for your architecture and extract it. There's a yam-mmc.cfg inside the tar. Modify that file to use your addresses and upload it to your own dropbox account. Upload the tar too.
Then, modify the script to use your dropbox urls and the file/foldernames for your chosen architecture. You can add a cd ~ after #! /bin/bash to be sure it's happening in your home folder.

It seems that I start to wake up now... LOL!

So, I have to edit this adding my own addresses and I’m done:

threads = 0
mining-params = mmc:av=1&aesni=on&m=1024
mine = getwork://MTb1JHjoJCSJBjTLUgqeyJ1nXxYxBRJEUX@work.mmcpool.com:80:8880:8881:8882:8883/mmc
mine = getwork://MSkLPYJQuskzp8wNqvZCpiTNYw7pJ83zGe@mmcpool.1gh.com:8080:8081:8082:8083/mmc
mine = getwork://yvg1900.mmc_1:x@mmc.gpools.com:8080/mmc
#proxy = socks4a://127.0.0.1:9150
compact-stats = 1
print-timestamps = 0


Final questions

1. If I create a droplet with 4 CPUs do I have to edit the “threads = 0” or something else?

2. Since I’m creating clouds to services like DigitalOcean, HP Cloud and Windows Azure, will yam-yvg1900-M7m-linux64-sandy-bridge.tgz do for “my” architecture?

Big thank you to all of you that help!

Thanks but it looks like that some parts are missing there...

Are those all the commands I need from step 1? Most guides have "cd ~" lines and "apt-get update" lines.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/yam_miner AND https://www.dropbox.com/s/your_yam_config lead to invalid pages. Are you sure about those URLs?

How about the final commands that connect the droplet with the pool?

Is it better to use ubuntu or delian and what version?

Thank you so much!!!

Nah yam miner is pretty self contained, no need for any sudo apt-get update. As for the dropbox, use your OWN dropbox URLs, gotta put some work into it to get the desired results. If I gave you my URLs, with my yam-config, your miners would be connected and mining for my address. Set up your own yam-config ahead of time, add it to your own dropbox (or any upload site really, I just use dropbox for convenience), and replace the URL. Do the same with the newest yam miner.

Refer to this topic https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2609.0 for newest yam version, information, and support.

Sorry brother, I do not have the knowledge required to understand any of this... If I had the know-how, I wouldn’t ask for your help.

As far as I understand I have to replace https://www.dropbox.com/s/yam_miner with https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jvp4wwek8jpohj7/RlW6hzYqTz but then I have to change the 4th command from the k version to the m version and make it look like

cd yam-yvg1900-M7m-linux64-sandy-bridge

Is the k version better? Should I look for a k version yam miner?

Also I can’t find an example of a yam miner config file... Could you help with this one?

And what about the final commands that will connect the droplet to the pool? Could you please post them?

Help us, the less computer smart people to get involved. It will make the coin more popular which is good for the future of the coin and therefor it is good for those of you that already invest time and money in this.

Thank you!

Solo cloud mining with the built-in non-optimized miner is definitely not profitable.

I don't think pool mining would be, because the VPS CPUs probably don't support AES.

Ok, so isn't there a way for configuring a cloud to work with the optimized miner AND connect with a pool where you can have multiple workers (like http://mmc.gpools.com/ )?

I don't even care if this is profitable. I have lots of cloud credits to waste...

Come on! There are a lot of smart people here! Someone must know how to do this...

Thank you!

On Linux, with yam, it's pretty easy. First take both the yam miner and your yam config and put it in your dropbox. For this instance, this is using sandy bridge yam. Then:

#! /bin/bash
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/yam_miner
tar zxvf yam-yvg1900-M7k-linux64-sandy-bridge.tgz
cd yam-yvg1900-M7k-linux64-sandy-bridge
cd linux64-sandy-bridge
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/your_yam_config
./yam --config yam-mmc.cfg

Hello Everyone,
After some requests I have decided to release my latest guide, how to cloud mine memory coin. Memory coin is a coin that is rapidly increasing in popularity but has very few cloud mining guides out there for it, something which you could use to turn a profit.

To start, please sign up for Digital Ocean using this link: https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=3a96071d7d5f Remember if you sign up with this link and spend $10 then I'll give you a $4 refund.

Once you sign up, create a new droplet. Choose whatever size you want (starting with the $10/month option as the smallest) and then choose Debian 7.0 x64 as your OS. After you do that they will email you your username (which is always root with Digital Ocean, and your password).

Once you do that, then click root access on your droplet's page and use that to log into your droplet so that you can begin editing. You'll use the username and password that you were given.

Code: [Select]
cd ~
apt-get update && apt-get install -y git make g++ build-essential libminiupnpc-dev libdb++-dev libgmp-dev libssl-dev dos2unix libboost-all-dev

Part 2
Code: [Select]
cd ~
mkdir -p .memorycoin
echo 'rpcuser=memorycoinrpc
rpcpassword=[You'll want to enter a secure password here]
rpcport=1925
rpcallow=127.0.0.1
server=1

Part 3 (now we'll want to add some nodes)
Code: [Select]
addnode=180.183.156.250:1968
addnode=76.24.94.154
addnode=62.43.2.239
addnode=82.52.177.81
addnode=84.249.109.128
addnode=79.3.168.143:1968
addnode=94.122.229.201:1968
addnode=118.210.212.90:1968
addnode=70.112.30.253:1968
addnode=95.89.105.134:1968
addnode=209.12.233.40:14210
addnode=79.113.210.250:51653
addnode=62.142.165.113:49646
addnode=86.106.35.224:1968
addnode=89.210.201.182:59197
addnode=84.228.200.63:50831
addnode=81.174.50.66:51930
addnode=213.197.188.148:43212

Finish it up now
Code: [Select]
gen=1' > .memorycoin/memorycoin.conf

And now lets get it started - the last batch is all one line.
Code: [Select]
cd memorycoin/src && ./bitcoind --daemon && watch './bitcoind getinfo && ./bitcoind getmininginfo'

Now you just give it some time to connect to the servers (can take up to 15 minutes or sometimes more)

Now once you mine a block you can transfer the funds with this command.
Code: [Select]
./bitcoind sendtoaddress <enter your address here no spaces> <amount here no spaces> [comment] [comment-to]


That's all. PM me and post here if you have any questions and make sure to PM me to get your $4 back!
Thank you for guide but in guide there is wrong commands.

Replace :
Code: [Select]
cd memorycoin/src && ./bitcoind --daemon && watch './bitcoind getinfo && ./bitcoind getmininginfo'to
Code: [Select]
git clone https://github.com/memorycoin/memorycoin;cd memorycoin/src && ./memorycoind --daemon && watch './memorycoind getinfo && ./memorycoind getmininginfo'

Replace:
Code: [Select]
./bitcoind sendtoaddress <enter your address here no spaces> <amount here no spaces> [comment] [comment-to]
to
Code: [Select]
./memorycoind sendtoaddress <enter your address here no spaces> <amount here no spaces> [comment] [comment-to]
