Minig Help Needed

I’ve been trying to get Blago(in the Qbundle) to work with no avail. Basically it runs fine for about a minute’ish and stops. Most times the log just stops, once or twice it says error parsing JSON getBlocks in the middle of the file and keeps going. It seems to say that right before a new block, so maybe that’s right. I do have one that ends with this

05:23:40 *! GMI: get mining info failed:: 10060

I did try changing the port number down by 1 to see if windows was killing the app for some reason and it stayed running for 5 minutes or so, the log file for those attempts are nothing but errors about server info as expected. But it stayed running.

I’ve had the same issue with all the miners I’ve tried for other coins as well, even with all the computers firewalls turned off, well except NiceHash, that is the only non-burst mining that will stay running longer then 2 minutes.

I have tried Jminer and creepminer also. CreepMiner deletes my pool info from the config file every time I run it and when I fix it, it gives me

28.01.2018 06:47:56 (0, E:\dev\C++\creepMiner\src\network\Request.cpp, 67, Error): Error on sending request: Connection refused

28.01.2018 06:47:56 (0, E:\dev\C++\creepMiner\src\mining\Miner.cpp, 170, Error): Could not get block infos!

Ok, after looking and finding the log for Jminer, It doesn’t stop on its own, I have to stop it, but its log has some strange things in it. The pool URL isn’t what’s in the config file, I’ll upload both of them, it’s throwing an error on the URL then it gives info about the pool.

CONFIG

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- BURSTCOIN JMINER --------- THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL SOFTWARE, USE ON YOUR OWN RISK! -

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

jminer is a PoC (Proof of Capacity) miner with GPU support for Burstcoin (BURST)

(openCL will also work with CPU in needed)

Requirements:

- Java8 (64bit recommend to use more memory)

- openCL

PLEASE DONATE

jminer would not be possible without openCL kernels and java code provided by ‘burstDev’,

he really deserves some tips for that!

BURST-QHCJ-9HB5-PTGC-5Q8J9

Feel free to support future development of mining engine …

- PLOT-FILES ----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

plotPaths - list of plot paths separated with , e.g. D:/,C:/,E:/plots,F:/plots (in one line)

(required) the miner will treat every path as ‘physical’ drive and use one thread for it

scanPathsEveryRound - optional ‘true’ will check ‘plotPaths’ for changed plot files on every round

(default:true) ‘false’ will check only on start/restart

listPlotFiles - optional … list all plotFiles on start, If walletServer/soloServer is configured,

(default:false) it will show mined blocks and drive seeks/chunks of plotfile, too.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

plotPaths=E:/plots
scanPathsEveryRound=
listPlotFiles=true

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- MINING MODE ---------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

poolMining - ‘true’ for pool mining, ‘false’ for solo mining.

(default:true) ensure to configure the chosen mining-mode below.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

poolMining=true

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- MINING MODE - POOL ---------------------------------- ONLY NEEDED 4 POOL MINING -

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTICE:

ensure you already setup reward assignment

http://localhost:8125/rewardassignment.html

numericAccountId - first number in all plot-files

(required for pool)

poolServer - format is inclusive protocol and port e.g. ‘http://pool.com:8125

(required for pool)

walletServer - define local or online wallet, to receive and show last winner!

(optional) if empty, winner feature will be just disabled.

format is inclusive protocol and port e.g. ‘http://localhost:8125

online use e.g. ‘https://wallet.burst-team.us:8125

winnerRetriesOnAsync - number of retries to get winner from walletServer

(default:4)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- MINING MODE - SOLO ---------------------------------- ONLY NEEDED 4 SOLO MINING -

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

soloServer - WARN! soloServer should be http://localhost:8125 or http://127.0.0.1:8125

(default: Solo means you send your PASS on commit results!

http://localhost:8125) DO NOT try to use a online wallet or pool as Server!

passPhrase - secretPhrase/password of solo mining burst-account

(required for solo)

targetDeadline - min. deadline to be committed. e.g. 750000

(optinal)

triggerServer - emulates open wallet, to prevent it from

(default: false) falling asleep (not sure if needed at all)

recommitDeadlines - recommits deadlines below 1200 3 times in a interval of 5 sec.

(default: false) experimental feature to increase chance that deadline gets propagated

e.g. on short disconnect or connected peers busy etc.

soloServer=http://localhost:8125
passPhrase=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
targetDeadline=

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- OpenCL -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The miner uses openCL for most of the mining calculations, ensure it is setup correctly.

Instructions can be found e.g. here (thanks cryo):

https://github.com/bhamon/gpuPlotGenerator/blob/master/README.md

You could also use that instruction to find your platformId and deviceId if needed.

platformId - id of openCL platform on your system. one platform may have multiple

(default:0) devices, the miner currently uses just one (in general not the bottleneck)

deviceId - specifies the device used by OCLCecker, can be your first GPU,

(default:0) in most cases it will not be 100% used. (depends on capacity)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

platformId=
deviceId=

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- MINING ENGINE -------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

refreshInterval - interval of asking wallet/pool for mining info (in ms),

(default:2000) to check for new block

updateMiningInfo - restart round on new generationSignature for same round

(default=true) as long as equal miningInfo was not already finished

(it may happen that miningInfo changes, and changes back later)

connectionTimeout - increase the ‘connectionTimeout’ on network problems.

(default:12000) this timeout is used for all network requests.

if you use pool or online-wallet, the 12 sec. default may

cause timeout on committing nonces or getting mining info etc.

debug - setting ‘debug’ to true will log additional information of the mining process,

(default:false) that are not related to mining, but to miner internals.

writeLogFile - setting ‘writeLogFile’ to ‘true’ will write all logs from console to a file, too.

(default:false) the name of that file can be specified by ‘logFilePath’.

logFilePath - path (filename and optional directory, relative to miner location)

(default:log/jminer.log.txt)

logPatternConsole - only needed if you want to configure your own log pattern e.g.:

logPatternFile %blue(%d{HH:mm:ss.SSS}) %green(%msg%n)

would only show colored time and message

Docs: https://logback.qos.ch/manual/layouts.html#ClassicPatternLayout

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- MINING ENGINE - APPEARANCE / BEHAVIOR -------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

readProgressPerRound - defines how often the mining progress is shown per round

(default:9) thats the ‘xx% done …’ info.

byteUnitDecimal - switch between decimal units (true): TB/GB/MB (divided by 1000),

(default:true) or binary units (false) TiB/GiB/MiB (divided by 1024) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte

showDriveInfo - set this to ‘true’ to show info about every drive on finish reading it,

(default:false) this is useful to find the slow ones … can help to optimize your setup.

showSkippedDeadlines - set this to ‘true’ to show found deadlines below targetDeadline from

(default:true) this config or provided by pool (overwriting the targetDeadline specified in here)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

readProgressPerRound=
byteUnitDecimal=
showDriveInfo=
showSkippedDeadlines=

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- MINING ENGINE - MEMORY USAGE ----------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

chunkPartNonces - staggerSize defines number of nonces per chunk.

(default:320000) the miner will split chunks in smaller pieces called chunkParts.

this makes sense, to save memory and optimize speed.

in the best case chunkPart#1 will be checked before chunkPart#2 is

completely read … depending on the power of your GPU.

if staggersize is smaller than chunkPartNonces, staggersize will be used.

e.g. play with +/- 160000 steps

readerThreads - normally ‘0’ means, the miner takes one thread per drive (plotPath) this is recommend.

(default:0) choosing a other number of ‘readerThreads’ can be useful on memory issues.

For example, if you mine on 4 drives (plotPaths), you can reduce the memory usage

by setting ‘readerThreads=2’, this will reduce mining speed but save memory.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

chunkPartNonces=
readerThreads=

Any help would be great.

I know 100GB isn’t going to get me anything, 2 burst a month, if I can get this working I’ll plot more just don’t see the point if I can’t get the software to work. Once again any help would be great.

Thanks,
SgtDitty

P.S. It may just be my Windows install, it has been acting really stupid all around for about a month or so. May just be time for a format and re-install of windows.

I only have experience with Blago miner, but you say every single crypto miner gives you issues except for NiceHash?

If you’re having massive problems all over the board, perhaps the dependancies normally installed in windows are corrupted or??

You for sure don’t have any antivirus installed?
