Have fun with that. Hope you're real familiar with Ubuntu. smile.gif

anyone else thinking of mining GPUCoin tonight? relaunch is tonight and has an interesting idea behind it.

Yes I will have a guide on CleverMining up tomorrow thumb.gif

Probably a newb questions, but: 290 vs 290X comparable to 270 vs 270X?

Advance thank you for the CleverMining Guide!

And congratz for the promotion! cheers.gif

So I did a search for the CGMiner stuff, and followed the links/threads to setup my .conf and .bat files, but I have a questions. Is it necessary to run individual .conf/.bat files for each card (six in total) or can I have one .conf/.bat pair startup all six cards at once? I ask because the cmd window shows each device individually anyway, and that's all I'm really looking for.

I'm not giving up on PTS yet, just want to have this setup as a backup in case the world ends. biggrin.gif Thanks!!!

What cards?

You need to be more specific, your sig shows a 680...

One bat or conf per rig, I'd reccomend a bat first, then try to learn how to make a conf file, and maybe try cgwatcher.

Yeah, my miner is in my sig as 'Miner' biggrin.gif

I have six 270X cards. I have a .conf and a .bat set up for each card, then one bat set up to launch all six .bat files at once. So it kind of looks like this....:

launch.bat :
Code:
start mine_0.bat
start mine_1.bat
start mine_2.bat
start mine_3.bat
start mine_4.bat
start mine_5.bat

Individual .bat files (numerical of cgminer_X changes per device ID):
Code:
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
timeout /t 4
cgminer.exe --scrypt -c cgminer_0.conf

Individual .conf files (numerical of "device" changes per device ID):
Code:
{
"pools" : [
        {
                "url" : "stratum+tcp://us.clevermining.com:3333",
                "user" : "my BTC wallet",
                "pass" : "workerpassword"
        }
]
,
"xintensity" : "4",
"worksize" : "256",
"lookup-gap" : "2",
"thread-concurrency" : "8193",
"temp-cutoff" : "90",
"expiry" : "1",
"failover-only" : true,
"log" : "5",
"queue" : "0",
"scan-time" : "1",
"device" : "0",
"gpu-threads" : "2"
}


I assume there is a way to condense those 13 files into 2....right? Thanks again!! biggrin.gif

EDIT: I have tried:
Code:
"device" : "0","1","2","3","4","5"
but that just crashed and burned right away rolleyes.gif

EDIT: Like I mentioned, it works; the user interface just hints there is a more efficient way as it lists all devices in all windows.

Sure, need more sleep sorry biggrin.gif

Use a single conf and start cgminer.exe or whatever it is.
Code:
{
"pools" : [
        {
                "quota" : "50;stratum+tcp://us.clevermining.com:3333",
                "user" : "my BTC wallet",
                "pass" : "workerpassword"
        },
{
                "quota" : "50;stratum+tcp://useast.wafflepool.com:3333",
                "user" : "my BTC wallet",
                "pass" : "workerpassword"
        }
]
,
"xintensity" : "4,4,4,4,4,4",
"worksize" : "256",
"lookup-gap" : "2,2,2,2,2,2",
"thread-concurrency" : "8193,8193,8193,8193,8193,8193",
"temp-cutoff" : "90",
"expiry" : "1",
"load-balance" : "true",
"log" : "5",
"queue" : "0",
"scan-time" : "1",
"gpu-threads" : "2"
}

Try that and tell me how it goes, it sends 50% of the hashing power to clevermining and 50% to wafflepool...if say clevermining goes down, you don't lose time catching up from scratch since you've been sending shares to the second backup pool all along.

I like that strategy, but I do it with hashco.ws which mines other more profitable coins, cause they have lower total hash rate. (it's more profitable at times, but not so reliable)

Awesome!!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif Do i need the "device" tag though?
post #5670 of 6478
I have turned my miners onto clever mining. With all the rise and falls, I just cant seem to mine the right coin at the right time.

Anyway, PTS seems to be down in the dumps right now and again, will wait for diff to go waaaaay down.
