Re: rieMiner - Solo + pooled Riecoin mining

Rockhawk, how did you find the 128 MiB + 650 MiB*SieveWorkers terms for the memory estimation? It seems to work good enough for big Sieves, but the estimation is imprecise for very low Prime Table Limits as it estimates ~800 MiB, while I am able to run rieMiner (from the Light Branch) without swappi...

Re: Contacting gatra?

I just sent an email to gatra at riecoin dot org and info at riecoin dot org... This is probably the last chance for gatra to come back. If he does not answer before 2019, we can assume that he completely abandoned us and a new team definitively needs to be built. In this case, let's hope that Zappl...

Re: rieMiner - Solo + pooled Riecoin mining

I was just curious and ran the Benchmark without the precomputed data nor AVX, and surprisingly, there was no noticeable performance loss at all for the 2700X (after 100000 2-tuples)! In another hand, the lack of AVX did impact the performance in the 6700K, and the precomputed data too (but the chan...

Re: rieMiner - Solo + pooled Riecoin mining

rieMiner code is now virtually ready. I will let this week for testing and maybe minor changes. Also, I will start working on the version without optimizations (Light branch). For people that used rieMiner until now, you will note that the option names completely changed, you need to read the manual...

Re: 0.16 wallet and bounty news??

Yes, clo1 said For those who want to continue running 0.16.3 after block 1000000, lines 85 and 86 in chainparams.cpp need to be changed. Just make it something really big like 2000000 for now. I thought 1000000 would be enough when I first wrote it. I can update this in the riecointeam repository as...

Re: rieMiner - Solo + pooled Riecoin mining

Sure, I totally agree :D ! It would indeed be interesting to make a direct comparison with fastrie, but I would need to rewrite a Benchmark Mode for the latter, and honestly I do not really want to touch that code anymore... However, until you arrived, the rieMiner performance should have been the s...

Re: rieMiner - Solo + pooled Riecoin mining

Rockhawk, I merged your work, thank you a lot! I did not find issues other than that AMD specific slowdown.

czakis, this has been fixed.

Re: rieMiner - Solo + pooled Riecoin mining

Ah, this is a shame :|... Ok, good enough. Also, I did a MemTest and did not find any error after some passes. There really should not be any hardware error in this computer, so I am confident that there are bugs somewhere. I'm not going to have much more time to work on improvments for the rest of ...

Re: rieMiner - Solo + pooled Riecoin mining

Pttn, it might be worth switching your testing to this branch - let me know if you see any issues! Hmmm... For some reason, I mine much slower with your new code with my 2700X (AVX2), using the same configuration file (Sieve 2^32, actual mining at current Difficulty, 16 Threads, 3 Workers). Before ...
