I think you may have it set up incorrectly.
THis is how I do it on Virtual Box or VmWare :
In the Vm application give the VM OS all cores
When running the CPU miner on the backend within the VM, set the affinity of walton.exe to every other core. (Instructions about running backend & setting affinity on sticky)
Also has anyone tried the every second thread option and had increased hash rates ?
I have been using all threads. I will give it a go and see what it does for my cpu
I do, and it doesn't give me extra hash but it does reduce my cpu usage to 50%, saving energy and allwing me to use the pc for other things.
Just on that. Does that mean in VMware, where I select the number of threads to allocate to my VM when CPU mining, could i just select half the number of cores if I am using every second thread ?
I give the vm application all cores, then use affinity on walton.exe within the vm
People bought in expecting to be able to earn rewards from holding a MN, but the mining setup makes it very hard to earn rewards now and the future looks even worse. Also, there is very little rewards set aside for staking (except for GMNs which are impossible to get now).
I think WTC will succeed in spite of their mining setup, but it's definitely disappointing.
Disappointing? You must be insain. This is the best month (and still currently by far) the best mining returns ever (in real time)
I'm not sure if they can detect mining, but it wouldn't surprise me. My innod3d cards had a sticker informing me the warranty is invalid if used for mining, so i'd guess they can record stats. I'd still risk it though incase they're bluffing.
yes the best way is miner.stop() - this will keep your blocks in sync. You don't lose progress as you don't really have any progress. Once the block is won you move on and try for the next block.
did you follow the official guide or community guide on gpu mining? if not i have listed them below
Yeah, and it's weird, now when im mining, I can see the GPU being fully utilized, but there are no connections and the LCPEV is 0. so im not even sure if its mining at all. I think that it could be creating false blocks.
use msi afterburner to see if yuur gpu is working, not task manager
I think looking in the 021000 file is the best bet. I’ll make a post later about it and how to record over time.
I wonder if difficulty changes are affecting your hashrate like that?
I looked at this file for my 1080ti and it seems close 1080ti: 908964 Then on my 1070ti : 1070ti: 571356 but then i looked at my 1080: 4228129 and lost all faith in it lol
Why would I do that when they are all chewing on the same block?
It's enough to calculate the % difference between the cards, which was OP's question.
Because it’s inaccurate. He asked for difference. Yours would show % difference only, which you don’t state. In this case its similar, but overall on doff blocks ot likely isn’t. But in ball park
Seems my first percentage was a bit off. Going by your numbers for the overclocked 1070ti (620k) and the overclocked 1080ti (943) the 1080ti is 52.09% faster than the 1070ti.
Going by my numbers for 1 block the difference is 56.98%. I'm guessing the main difference between our numbers would be different overclock profiles.
Please keep posting them numbers and if possible include the OC settings for each card.
Well the 1080ti was at 70% power yesterday. (the previous results were about 6 days go). I've just resampled the 1080ti and it is at 800k/s. That's 100% power, +114, +500.
I think originally the only difference was +600mem. So i'm upping it back to than and i'll resample it tomorrow. (I'm not sure if average hashrate would change due to difficulty.. maybe? )
Each average sample has about 6000-8000 times which i just c&p from ming and use notepad++ to get rid of the junk.
The card is on its limit in regards to core so i can't go any higher and I reduced mem to 500 as it would sometimes lock up overnight, and hasn't since the reduciton.
It definitely isn't capped to the 256k that people originally thought. I collected about 5000 blocks worth of hash rate data and my 1080ti's seem to be averaging about 900k. What is strange however is that they don't get nearly as hot as mining other coins, so in some way it must not be using the GPU to its full extent
Some coins act like that. Its is due to the algorithm being run. Some are core heavy and some memory heavy. If you run nicehash you will notice some algotithms ramp your fans more than others - this is why.
Make a .bat file with the script below. You will see that power draw on this coin is very low. I had 250W mining other coins, here its just 60W
cd C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVSMI
.\nvidia-smi --query-gpu=index,gpu_name,power.draw,clocks.sm,clocks.mem,temperature.gpu,utilization.gpu --format=csv
TIMEOUT 5 > nul
For power draw i only ever look at the plug and total system. It’s a pretty low power coin as you say. 300W for ryzen 1700 o’c’d and 1080ti both mining
Nice query though 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I have followed the steps, I think :S the problem I get is that the start_gpu.bat file opens up for a split second and is then closed automatically. Same happens with firewall etc turned off
you can't have the cpu miner running at the same time. If you still see issues open it via cmd
cd c:/WTC (or wherever your folder is located)
Hi, I followed your instructions (thank you), but I am also getting a constant hash/seconds of 30278 over and over in the ming_run.exe window... Should I create a .bat and add the first/second quoted script from the OP?:
set /p hashrate=<0202001
echo %time%,%hashrate% >> hashrate_history.csv
echo %time%: %hashrate%
timeout /t 5 /nobreak > NUL
Is that why my hash rate keeps coming up the same? If so, where should i put that .bat above i quoted?
Lastly to be sure, where should the Start_gpu.bat file and Ming_run.exe file be located? In /WTC or in /WTC/Walton-GPU-64 or in /WTC/Walton-GPU-64/GPUMing_v0.2? Just leave them in original spot or move them into same folder? Does location even matter?
Thank you very, very much for your time!
