miniZ a fast and friendly Equihash <144,5> miner


#12

hello ,
even after 5 min temp still is not shown by miniz while using 6 gpu :
[ 0d 0h 5m09s] 473(473) 0>GTX 1080 Ti[0°C/ 0%] 39.21 I/s 78.6(78.6) Sol/s 1>GTX 1080 Ti[0°C/ 0%] 40.15 I/s 80.1(80.0) Sol/s 2>GTX 1080 Ti[0°C/ 0%] 39.93 I/s 78.9(79.2) Sol/s 3>GTX 1080 Ti[0°C/ 0%]*38.69 I/s 77.9(77.9) Sol/s 4>GTX 1080 Ti[0°C/ 0%] 39.75 I/s 79.3(79.3) Sol/s 5>GTX 1080 Ti[0°C/ 0%] 39.30 I/s 78.7(78.8) Sol/s

i tried with only one and then with 4 gpu and temperature was read immediately.

then i tried with 5 GPU and temperature is still not shown . in order to exclude a GPU dysfunction i tried first with gpu 0123 and then with gpu 4 & 5 . it worked fine.

so i run 2 different instances of miniz with 3 gpu each .

here is libnvidia-ml.so location :

/usr/local/cuda-10.0/targets/x86_64-linux/lib/stubs/libnvidia-ml.so
/usr/local/cuda-9.1/targets/x86_64-linux/lib/stubs/libnvidia-ml.so
/usr/lib/nvidia-410/libnvidia-ml.so

nvidia ldconfig :

[email protected]:~$ ldconfig -p | grep nvidia-ml
libnvidia-ml.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/nvidia-410/libnvidia-ml.so.1
libnvidia-ml.so.1 (libc6) => /usr/lib32/nvidia-410/libnvidia-ml.so.1
libnvidia-ml.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/nvidia-410/libnvidia-ml.so
libnvidia-ml.so (libc6) => /usr/lib32/nvidia-410/libnvidia-ml.so

I use nvidia driver 410.72

now with the both instances of miniz my outputs are :

1 )
[ 0d 0h 4m19s] 235(235)
0>GTX 1080 Ti [80°C/59%]*38.72 I/s 78.3(78.3) Sol/s 243.7W clk=1683MHz mclk=5005MHz Sol/W=0.32

2 )

while i launch the second instance i’ve got a error message :

************ miniZ v1.0g ************
Error: Bind has been failed
Bind: : Address already in use

[edit] i understood :slight_smile: bind address is the address for telemetry

miniz work very well anyway . i can mine with miniZ the same speed than if i had 9 GPU with ewbf’s miner .

the issue is the number of GPU. if u want to try on my rig i’ll be able to manage an ssh access next week end.

thank you very much for help.

hi everyone ,

Thank you very much bataverde , now this is fully functionnal.
I wish i had that such a reactive developper at work :slight_smile:

you can add :

GTX 1080Ti 11GB ~80-85 Sol/s


#16

Thank you rhum200. Glad to know all is running fine.
Are those values with and without OC? If you did some OC can you share your settings so that we can add them?
Cheers


#17

I did no OC in my cards, may be i could get a bigger hashrate.
Regarding to my card’s price i’d prefer to let them with original settings.
I’m too scared to overdamage them.


#18

Hi rhum200,

you might benefit in efficiency, usually people limit the power and introduce some modifications to the core and the memory clock. You need to do it with some care.

From our experience, sometimes we did hang the computer or the miner, but we never damaged the cards. We prevent them from overheating and never raise the voltage. In any case, we understand your fears since those are indeed expensive cards.

Thank you for the values. Just one more question :slight_smile: What is the long time average? It should have stabilized.


#19

please explain me where i can read “long time average”


#20

Thank you for your time. You can read 3h average in the console output. See here how http://miniz.ch/usage/#ConsoleOutput
Cheers


#21

so long time average is 493 using 6 cards.
82 sol/s per card

i had a core dump crash after 2 and half days mining i did not investigate about it because i saw it while i was at work . next crash i’ll take time look at system logs ( may be in cuda’s ) and report to you


#22

Hi rhum200, that card may need some tuning in the miner. We’ll see if we can do it.
Regarding the crash, we’ll investigate trying to reproduce the error. If it happens again, it would be great if you can report back. Thank you so much for your cooperation.

hello bataverde,

crash cames again 45 min ago, here is the end of console output :

#26

wow great work buddy!
Can anyone vouch for these figures?


#27

wow, time to try your miner! wosh it means ~40S/s for my two 1050 gpus!
how is the functionality of the rig during mining?
can it handle some more process or it will freeze?


#28

Im testing it now:
1050ti 4gb: 18.5S/s
1050 2gb: 16.5S/s

Total: 35Sol/s it means +5Sol compaired to EWBF!


#29

Hi FollowWings,
because the miner uses almost all GPU resources, everything running in parallel will certainly have an effect in performance.
However, the best is to try and see how it goes. :slight_smile:
Cheers


#30

Thanks for reporting!


#31

Hi everyone,

Like the previous version, we added support for RTX 20xx GPUs. If you happen to try miniZ on these GPUs, give us feedback so that we can keep improving the miner.

Use Cuda 10.0 versions with the RTX GPUs. Other GPUs should perform better with Cuda 8.0 versions.
