Simultaneous Mining with GPU and ASIC and CPU?



  • If I have a GPU and GekkoScience ASIC installed can I Mine two different things at once?


  • Staff

    PIMP is capable of running multiple mining applications at once; this should be no problem.


  • Beta Team

    I am trying to run GPU and CPU at once. GPU is working OK (sgminer.eth.conf) and I set up CPU with cpuminer-multi.xmr.pcfg. Both miners are running, but only sgminer shows the hash rate. CPU miner is running but it shows 0,00 hash rate. I am using moneropool.com. Please let me know what could be wrong.

    With thanks,

    HMM

    Attach to the running miner using screen, or simply start the miner in debug mode first ( pimp --debug miner# ). The logging for the miner will most likely be your best resource for information as to why the miner is not working as you believed.

    Thanks Anjin. I am running now in debug mode, and it shows hashes on 8 threads. A sample:

    [2018-02-07 17:49:00] 8 miner threads started, using 'cryptonight' algorithm.

    [2018-02-07 17:57:16] CPU #0: 19.06 H/s

    But in the Miner.Farm it shows as stopped (don´t show when in debug mode?) And when I started it before in normal mode, it showed 0,0 H/s. Is it working?

    One last question: how do I "attach to the running miner using screen"?

    With thanks for your help,

    HMM.


  • Staff

    When you start a miner, it binds the miner output to a 'screen' session. Screen is a tool that provides a pseudo terminal that can be moved around as you need it. 'screen -d -r' is a command I use a lot, it tells screen to detach a running screen, and reattached it to your session. You can read up on all the features of the screen command, it has lots of uses :)

    If you have only one miner running, and no other screen sessions. Just type 'screen -d -r'

    Watch the miner for a short period, and make sure its number agree with what your pool says first.


  • Beta Team

    Excellent. Thanks for the info. It is working, but Miner.farm shows 0.0 h/s. Any idea why?

    With thanks for your help,

    HMM


  • Staff

    Most likely not configured properly. The service seems to work and is up. It has little to differentiate between users, so it it’s working for one, it normally is working for all. If you message me the specifics, I can dig deeper. Like Miner farm, etc. perhaps find me on discord.


  • Beta Team

    Anjin: Definitely it is not working. It appears as running and in the screen and it shows the H/s for each CPU, but the pool (moneropool.com) is not receiving any Hashes. This is the configuration file I am using:

    GNU nano 2.8.7 File: /opt/confs/cpuminer-multi.xmr.pcfg Modified

    And this is the screen:

    [2018-02-08 20:45:12] CPU #6: 18.98 H/s

    And this is the minerfarm screen:

    ┌ = MINER.FARM agent console = ────────────────────────────────────────────────┐

    As you can see, the hash rate is 0.00Kh/s.

    Please let me know what I am doing wrong.

    With thanks,

    Hernan.

    Run pimpup and update the miner cpuminer-multi. See if this resolves it.


  • Beta Team

    I could not put cpuminer-xmr on monero pool to work. But now it is working fine on xmrpool. If you can find the problem with Monero, please let me know.

    Thanks for your help,

    Hernan
