Not sure.  Been mining most of morning on 2 pc's 3 threads each...First I got an error message and could not find node, then it took a while for hashing to begin, then my miner shut down???? and now I check mininginfo and I find 0 hashes.  What?????  All morning mining and nothing to show for it but headaches.  Oh well.... hope somebody is making some money out there, because at this rate, I'll never make any coins!



{
"blocks" : 827,
"currentblocksize" : 0,
"currentblocktx" : 0,
"difficulty" : 0.00000095,
"errors" : "",
"generate" : false,
"genproclimit" : -1,
"hashespermin" : 0,
"pooledtx" : 0,
"testnet" : false
}

Sheesh  .. Is it me or are others having trouble?

It's not just you.  I ran all night on a couple of servers, found nothing.  Little depressing. lol.

tried switching directly from 3 processes to 2, crashed protoshares-qt

tried switching mining off, then switching from 3 processes to 2, crashed protoshares-qt

does "genproclimit" : 1, mean limited to 1 process? I selected 3. also, hash rate dropped from 2.99 to 2.08

(windows client, xp 64 bit)

genproclimit refers to the number of mining processes you are running.

This is a bug I have experienced as well.. I will work with FreeTrade to get this addressed and also build a standalone miner that doesn't crash!

Thank you, standalone like a modified cpuminer would be superb, with linux to windows availability.  I will look into it as well and will message you if I get something together soon.

I modified the getwork byte order to avoid unnecessary swapping... I already have a rough cpuminer but it is not ready for distribution yet.   It will be out in a week hopefully with better mining performance and lower memory usage.

Been mining here all morning trying to find something. Still no dice.

Noticed the following -

{
"blocks" : 1161,
"currentblocksize" : 1000,
"currentblocktx" : 0,
"difficulty" : 0.00000095,
"errors" : "",
"generate" : false,
"genproclimit" : 3,
"hashespermin" : 52.235554,
"pooledtx" : 0,
"testnet" : false
}

So I did the following instead
setgenerate true 3

And now it shows this:
{
"blocks" : 1161,
"currentblocksize" : 1000,
"currentblocktx" : 0,
"difficulty" : 0.00000095,
"errors" : "",
"generate" : true,
"genproclimit" : 3,
"hashespermin" : 12.347789,
"pooledtx" : 0,
"testnet" : false
}

Wonder if thats what I was missing?

This may be a noob question but how are you on "blocks 1161" when mine currently says that there are only 1089?

{
"blocks" : 1089,
"currentblocksize" : 1226,
"currentblocktx" : 1,
"difficulty" : 0.00000095,
"errors" : "",
"generate" : true,
"genproclimit" : 3,

}

Maybe that's what you downloaded to.

Here is the most recent one
{
"blocks" : 1444,
"currentblocksize" : 1844,
"currentblocktx" : 1,
"difficulty" : 0.00000095,
"errors" : "",
"generate" : true,
"genproclimit" : 3,
"hashespermin" : 10.18785409,
"pooledtx" : 1,
"testnet" : false
}

Windows Server Standard 2003 - qt client crashes when selecting any number of mining processes, 2 ghz xeon, 2 gb ram, dell poweredge 2900 server

setgenerate true 1 also crashes protoshares

Yes I think it just decided to give up mining on block 1089 as it was still on the same block an hour later, probably bored of not finding anything and gave up lol

Have restarted it now and it seems fine, thanks!

2 GB of RAM is very tough to mine on with current implementations, especially if the OS and other services are using any of the RAM.

Hi,

I am not sure it is working.

Can someone send me something (a very small amount) on my address ?
Ppfk7DMY7wCpFfLUnSVijGwruPq3Y3WJF9

I'll give it back if needed.

Thx
