creepMiner - C++ Burst Miner (based on Uray's Miner)



  • @Creepsky No worries.

    Thanks for the tip on changing the mining intensity. Setting it to '1' brought the read times close to what I was seeing originally. Because I don't fully understand what the verifiers do, am I compromising my reads by running at a lower number?



  • @RatPatrol you can see the plot readers as work producer and the verifiers as worker.
    Every plot reader is reading parts from the plot files and putting the data onto a stack. The verifiers are taking this data and looking for good deadlines inside of them.

    There is never more work to do as maxBufferSizeMB (in MB); if a new work block would exceed this value, the plot readers are waiting.

    Every plot reader and every verifier represents exactly 1 thread. If you have too many threads running, the program can begin to slow down, because the threads (plot reader, verifier, wallet requests, and so on) are blocking each other for a short amount of time (can be ns, can be ms).

    So its safe to use whatever settings fits to your computer - if it runs fine, just use them :)



  • @Creepsky Got it. Thank you for the explanation!



  • Hey @Creepsky ,
    I have few problems with the miner.

    1. What went wrong here? It seems like there slipt a to long DL thru:
      0_1489236695638_creepBug.png

    2.The miner stops minig after a while:
    0_1489236964552_creepstuck.png

    3.Sometimes my PC becomes unusable while the miner is reading the drives, even though the CPU is only at 70%.

    90% of the time the miner works fine.



  • Hey @Daforce,

    1 comes from a fast block. The sent nonce was found for the last block, but the pool (or wallet) calculated it for the current block. This happens mainly because of latency and high CPU load on the pool (or wallet) side.

    Unfortunately there is not much I can do :-\ a new parameter in the API of the wallet or pool would fix this, but that's not in my hands. (/burst?requestType=submitNonce&accountId=...&nonce=...&blockheight=...).

    Actually, I also could simply hide the bad nonce/deadline (what I really should do, thanks for your report).

    2 is a bug that was fixed in the latest release (https://github.com/Creepsky/creepMiner/releases/tag/2.5.0).

    3 is interesting. One thing I can think of why this happens is that I set the priority of the plot read threads to a very high value. If you have a lot of readers, it can happen that the OS gives compute time only for the readers, but not the rest of the system.

    Also, here I refer to the latest version, where I set the priority down.
    If this doesn't help, you could set "mining"."maxPlotReaders" to a value > 0 and < the amount of your plot drives and/or change "mining"."intensity" to a lower value.



  • @Creepsky ok thanks, for the reply.
    I will try the new version and report back, how it runs :)



  • @Creepsky
    Ok, I let it run over night.

    1. Happend again.
      alt text
    2. Seems to be fixed
    3. Happend again, then I changed the plotreaders from 8 to 5, runs smooth for now.

  • Hi @zefux, thank you for reporting this error!

    There is an open issue on github for this bug.
    You can download (or compile if you are on Linux) the latest pre-release 1.5.2 to fix it.

    Please tell me if there is something wrong with the fix.



  • @Creepsky runs great now :) thank you



  • version 1.5.2 is out (changelog is in the first message of this thread).



  • @popoy17 I saw that you have a problem with missing dlls.
    I bundled the 32 bit exe with the wrong dlls. 1.5.2 x32 is now uploaded again with the correct libeay32MD.dll and ssleay32MD.dll.



  • @Creepsky thank you so much gonna try it now :)



  • @Creepsky i have a question about this ```
    //},
    "plots" : [
    "C:\plots",
    "/Users/uraymeiviar/Documents/plots"

    
    how to set if my directory of my plot is C:\Burst\x86\plots


  • @popoy17 change it to

    "plots" : [
        "C:\\Burst\\x86\\plots"
    ]
    


  • @Creepsky thanks for the immediate response i will try :)



  • @Creepsky said in creepMiner - C++ Burst Miner (based on Uray's Miner):

    C:\Burst\x86\plots

    0_1490551081959_Screenshot_1.jpg

    what should be the problem of this? plotfile has an invalid staggersize?



  • @Creepsky
    Man this miner does a nice job! I appreciate your Skills and hard work!
    I spent almost 10 hours straight playing with this app on a 6 x rx480 8gb ETH miner.
    Can almost dual mine ETH/Pasl (Claymore) and run this Burst miner app together!
    IMO if you could code some kind of controls where a guy can manually allocate resources to the miner, that could really help Burst coin and of coarse us miners. Would also likely increase your audience ten fold!

    Using the following settings,

    "maxBufferSizeMB" : 4096,
    "intensity" : 3,
    "maxPlotReaders" : 0,

    "F:\Burst\plots"
    "E:\Burst\plots",
    "D:\Burst\plots"

    With the GPU's idle, I saw 9-12% of memory used or diminished by Creepminer intermittently over all six GPUs. So enough to almost completely stop GPU mining, when it is mining with 100%.

    There seemed to be no software conflict between the two mining apps
    Love the app, Thank you!

    ETA: The 3 plots total 8.3 tb



  • @popoy17 is your staggersize 121? the miner excpects a staggersize that is a multiplier of the nonce-count. Can't remember why I did this, maybe because it was easier to code :)
    You can for example optimize your plot files what will set your staggersize automatically to the nonce-count.

    @mr-x wow, thank you so much for your feedback :)
    I'm working at the moment on the webinterface. One new feature will be the possibility to change the settings while the miner is running.

    The cuda part of the miner needs some otimization, still lot of work to do..



  • @Creepsky
    Ahh yes, I got to nosing around and found the goodies in the public folder, had my suspicions, cool!

    I have three identical optimized plot files, same reasoning, because it was easier, lol.

    Drive E:
    <numeric account id>_22869835_11424000_11424000

    Free space 5,529,534,464 bytes 5.14 GB

    The Creepminer was reading > 200mb/s at those settings. Although I noticed I have not been able to get below 2 day dl's with that miner, had suspicion something was wrong with my settings.

    I have previously been getting occasional 5-10 min dls, lots of dls under 24 hrs, also won 4 blocks and have averaged fairly good rewards from Tross pool over the past week with "Blago" (wallet miner), and actually won one of the blocks with " jminer snapshot " which I only ran briefly.

    I'm new to burst coin so I used the nonce calculator available in the forum, and was mostly concentrated on getting the GpuPlotGenerator settings so it seemed nice and stable.
    I have one more 3 tb hdd to plot but with the GPUs making over 2.00 a day each I have been hesitant to shut down the ETH mining for that long.
    Had to rob the PSU from my desktop (plotting PC) when a cheapy Zalman 1250 watt went rogue on a couple of new rx480s!

    Sounds like I have some more reading to do, and I am all ears!
    Sorry for the long post, I would dearly appreciate any input from you!
