1% of CPU used on two different serwers (both Ubuntu, one EC2 and second dedicated server)


#1

Hi Guys,

Please check the screenshots from two different ubuntu machines:
FIRST SERVER:

SECOND SERVER:

Both are not using too much CPU but I've heard that the ZCash is CPU heavy? Any idea what am I missing?

The ~/zcash/src/zcash-cli getinfo produces for both a correct output:

Server #1:
{
"version" : 1000001,
"protocolversion" : 170002,
"walletversion" : 60000,
"balance" : 0.13180000,
"blocks" : 4260,
"timeoffset" : -2,
"connections" : 7,
"proxy" : "",
"difficulty" : 48.37731704,
"testnet" : true,
"keypoololdest" : 1476103685,
"keypoolsize" : 101,
"paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
"relayfee" : 0.00005000,
"errors" : "This is a pre-release test build - use at your own risk - do not use for mining or merchant applications"
}

Server #2:
{
"version" : 1000001,
"protocolversion" : 170002,
"walletversion" : 60000,
"balance" : 0.02000000,
"blocks" : 4260,
"timeoffset" : 0,
"connections" : 9,
"proxy" : "",
"difficulty" : 48.37731704,
"testnet" : true,
"keypoololdest" : 1476193389,
"keypoolsize" : 101,
"paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
"relayfee" : 0.00005000,
"errors" : "This is a pre-release test build - use at your own risk - do not use for mining or merchant applications"
}

Is it a normal behaviour of using only 1% CPU? I've checked the TOP CPU processes with """watch "ps aux | sort -nrk 3,3 | head -n 5"""".


#2

add gen=1 into your config file


#3

thanks, I will try. What does the "gen" mean? Why it's important?


#4

gen=0 means just running the wallet
gen=1 means start mining when running the daemon (wallet)

gen=generate

1=on
0=off
