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

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

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

htop <3

anyway, how are the rejection rates?
has someone tested the 'dirty' workaround commit @github yet?

I forgot to mention sudo. Sorry.

Enter "htop" to check the CPU load and do "sudo screen -x" to enter the screen session.

Did you cd into the directory?

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

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

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

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

---------

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

First I opened a new file

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

I entered this into the startup script:

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

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

I saved this then entered:

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

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

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

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

Edit: Sorry, didn't read the posts before your last one.

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

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

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

screen ./ptsminer <my_addr> -whatever

and it tells me there is no such directory now

Code: [Select]
nano /etc/init.d/buildminer

Insert this code:

Code: [Select]
cd ~
rm -rf ~/ptsminer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y git make g++ build-essential libminiupnpc-dev libboost-all-dev libdb++-dev libgmp-dev libssl-dev dos2unix yasm screen htop
git clone https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer
cd ~/ptsminer/src
make -f makefile.unix
screen ./ptsminer PZbcpbARni1kLsxrwj8NHNiD44n69EMaMa 8 27 sse4

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

Reboot. Enjoy  ;)

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

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

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

Thanks.
Anyway i tested it and the AVX (in fact all c3x instances) have negative ROI for me. They are just too expensive.
Hmm, It's still worth it for me...

Hmm what do you pay per instance/hour and how many collisions/m do you get?
Up to 0.18$/h.
How many collisions? no clue, I just look at how many PTS I got for how much I spent, and it was 50% profit (not huge in dollars, but huge in %..)
I haven't got any spot instance all week end though :/

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

Thanks, that got it going for me. It seemed to stall for way too long on the first work received but seems okay once I did Ctrl+C to stop and restarted.
