#62

Post your config. It’s hard to say without it
Also post your - linux kernel and drivers version


#63

Can someone post his whole config?

Кто нибудь может показать полный конфиг?

у меня главная проблема это
[2018-10-20 21:24:33] : File is empty or too short - config.txt.

xmr-stak exited, waiting to cooldown a bit

  • GPU configuration. You should play around with intensity and worksize as the fastest settings will vary.
  • index - GPU index number usually starts from 0
  • intensity - Number of parallel GPU threads (nothing to do with CPU threads)
  • worksize - Number of local GPU threads (nothing to do with CPU threads)
  • affine_to_cpu - This will affine the thread to a CPU. This can make a GPU miner play along nicer with a CPU miner.
  • strided_index - switch memory pattern used for the scratch pad memory
  •             2 = chunked memory, chunk size is controlled by 'mem_chunk'
    
  •                 required: intensity must be a multiple of worksize
    
  •             1 or true  = use 16byte contiguous memory per thread, the next memory block has offset of intensity blocks
    
  •                         (for cryptonight_v8 and monero it is equal to strided_index = 0)
    
  •             0 or false = use a contiguous block of memory per thread
    
  • mem_chunk - range 0 to 18: set the number of elements (16byte) per chunk
  •             this value is only used if 'strided_index' == 2
    
  •             element count is computed with the equation: 2 to the power of 'mem_chunk' e.g. 4 means a chunk of 16 elements(256byte)
    
  • unroll - allow to control how often the POW main loop is unrolled; valid range [1;128) - for most OpenCL implementations it must be a power of two.
  • comp_mode - Compatibility enable/disable the automatic guard around compute kernel which allows
  •             to use a intensity which is not the multiple of the worksize.
    
  •             If you set false and the intensity is not multiple of the worksize the miner can crash:
    
  •             in this case set the intensity to a multiple of the worksize or activate comp_mode.

  • Thread configuration for each thread. Make sure it matches the number above.
  • low_power_mode - This can either be a boolean (true or false), or a number between 1 to 5. When set to true,
  •              this mode will double the cache usage, and double the single thread performance. It will
    
  •              consume much less power (as less cores are working), but will max out at around 80-85% of
    
  •              the maximum performance. When set to a number N greater than 1, this mode will increase the
    
  •              cache usage and single thread performance by N times.
    
  • no_prefetch - Some systems can gain up to extra 5% here, but sometimes it will have no difference or make
  •              things slower.
    
  • asm - Allow to switch to a assembler version of cryptonight_v8; allowed value [auto, off, intel_avx, amd_avx]
  •                - auto: xmr-stak will automatically detect the asm type (default)
    
  •                - off: disable the usage of optimized assembler
    
  •                - intel_avx: supports Intel cpus with avx instructions e.g. Xeon v2, Core i7/i5/i3 3xxx, Pentium G2xxx, Celeron G1xxx
    
  •                - amd_avx: supports AMD cpus with avx instructions e.g. AMD Ryzen 1xxx and 2xxx series
    
  • affine_to_cpu - This can be either false (no affinity), or the CPU core number. Note that on hyperthreading
  •              systems it is better to assign threads to physical cores. On Windows this usually means selecting
    
  •              even or odd numbered cpu numbers. For Linux it will be usually the lower CPU numbers, so for a 4
    
  •              physical core CPU you should select cpu numbers 0-3.
    
  • On the first run the miner will look at your system and suggest a basic configuration that will work,
  • you can try to tweak it from there to get the best performance.
  • A filled out configuration should look like this:
  • “cpu_threads_conf” :
  • [
  •  { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "asm" : "auto", "affine_to_cpu" : 0 },

как узнать кто сыпет реджекты?


#66

В окне майнера r нажать.
Там вроде пишет причину реджектов.


#67

my hiveos says xmr-stak exited,waiting to cooldown a bit

file is empty or too short - config.txt

has anyone has same problem as me?

im on 0.5-79


#68

напиши мне в telegram: @helpBiosEditor помогу всё настроить.


#69

@barry8212 - is this latest post working? I am struggling too :frowning:


#70

What overclocking settings are you using?


#71

Nope i am still not mining XMR


#72

how is the config? i use single thread works fine but double threan doesn’t work


#73

Hi guys

Could someone that allready mine Monero after the fork, please post screenshoots of how to set this up, i still can`t mine Monero :frowning:

For those who knows how to do this, please help…

Jan-Erik, Norway


#74

what is you GPU? i can mine both in 580 570 550, but best performanace still in 570 580

Привет всем! Пробую на XMR-Stack 2.5 fireice-uk запустить криптонайт-хэвен под хайв на картах 1063 с параметрами:

“threads” : 21, “blocks” : 36,
“bfactor” : 0, “bsleep” : 0,
“affine_to_cpu” : false, “sync_mode” : 3, “mem_mode” : 1,

майнер ругается Error: out of memory
как так? 21 * 36 * 2 = 1512 мб это половина от набортной памяти!!! Кто какие параметры наилучшие подобрал для 1063 для CN Heavy / Heaven???
