16 Core CPU Benchmark


#1

Hello,
I have set a Blade HP Proliant BL460C,
I also have set Línux Debian 8.5.0 64bits.
Then I have set VMWare12.5 with a Debian 8.5.0 64bits guess.
The zcash beta 2, configuration was successfully, like it
is very well explained at:

https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/Beta-Guide

I would like to know if:
zctestseie6wxgio.onion works when you set at
zcash.conf instead of betatestnet.z.cash.

Because the miner started two hours ago and
still my balance is 0.00000000

The number of blocks are bigger than a few
minutes ago, when I set at rpc-console the
following command:

./src/zcash-cli getinfo

I have generated the t-addr and the z-addr addresses successfully and easy.

I also know that I must set at this moment the t-addr at:

sorry I have only 2 hyperlinks, because I am newbe, reply to get the link or must read a bit.

will be written as reply: 1.1

to play with some beta coins.

Also I want to set my server Benchmark at:

sorry I have only 2 hyperlinks, because I am newbe, reply to get the link or must read a bit.

will be written as reply: 1.2

With 32 GB DDR3 1333 16cores 2.26Ghz I got when I run
zcash-cli zcbenchmark solveequihash 20:

I have a dude to calcualate the media because at:

https://benchmark.minezcash.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

there it says this:

Then calculate the average time of those results (total time / 20) to
get your 'solve equihash' time. It's important to note that there are 2 hashes per solve

the total sums of this amounts of time result: 2544,857011

Please, can anybody say to me if I need to divide per 20 or what?

Thank you very much.

What did you set your genproclimit equal to?

genproclimit = n

Assigns the number of cores you are using. Your numbers are all over the place, but it definitely does not look like you were mining on 16.

2544.85/20 = 127.24 seconds/equihash, you are barely scraping by. Remember the avg block time is 150 seconds.

Try

$ genproclimit = 4

and

$ ./src/zcash-cli zcbenchmark solveequihash 10

To get some fast results to see if you were using 1 core of 16 cores originally (you should be able to tell be the average)

Hello abromide,

At first place, thank you very much by your fast answer.

The HP Proliant BL460C g6 has twh processors intel core i7 L5520 xeon,
each processor has 4 cores then 8 threads, as the blade has two processors
2 processors x 8 threads = 16

When I set the command to build the software I set as the following:
./zcutil/build.sh -j16

I use a guess os, debian 8.5.0 64bits on VMware-Workstation-Full-12.5.0-4352439.x86_64

I'll try what you have said and then will come back.

Thank you a lot.


#5

genproclimit = phisical core -> 8 in your case


#6

OK. Thank you very much, I'll be back when Bechmark finish to post the results here and at:

benchmark.minezcash.com/


#7

Hello,
I have set at the beguining when you start the daemon:
./src/zcashd -daemon -genproclimit=8
Previously I have modify at VMWare two processors and four Cores each processor, total 8 Cores.
32 GB DDR3 1333

Then the command give to me this data:
./src/zcash-cli zcbenchmark solveequihash 10
[
{
"runningtime" : 150.51054900
},
{
"runningtime" : 84.44800800
},
{
"runningtime" : 83.66003700
},
{
"runningtime" : 25.27579100
},
{
"runningtime" : 53.97605600
},
{
"runningtime" : 85.30003000
},
{
"runningtime" : 53.83076600
},
{
"runningtime" : 54.99874100
},
{
"runningtime" : 24.87689700
},
{
"runningtime" : 24.58746800
}
]

If you sum all time you get: 641,464343
641,464343 / 10 = 64,1464343

Isn't it bad result, is it?

Thank you very much by the software, replies, explanations, etc

Looks pretty good, you're in a really safe range for getting an average of 2 equihash per block :slight_smile:

Were you using the machine solely for mining or were you doing other things on it during the test?


#10

Thank you very much, zcashio. Now I have write the data of two VM in two differents computers.
You can easily to see at:

Hello abromide, thank you very much by your help.
Finally I got a good result, didn't I?

At:

https://benchmark.minezcash.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

You can see the two computers which I will dedicate to cpu mining vcash.
At 6700K I have other three VM running, I have one VM with Debian 8.5.0 x64
with GenyMotion to virtualice Android and get WhatsApp, this has 8 threads,
4 cores, running and 6GB ddr4/2133 because GenyMotion runs on VirtualBox,
then I have to have enabled the option Virtualice Vt-x at VMware at proccesors
options. But it runs fast like the light.

The second are Wallets like Bitcoin, Litecoin, XMR, ColossusCoin and ETC and ESP2,
It runs on VM Windows 8.1 x64 with 8 threads, 4 cores and 8GB ddr4/2133. It runs
very well too, for example bitcoind.exe load and unload very easy and relatively fast
too, it is because I have a WD 4TB Hdd Sata 3 to Sata3 conection connected, but
when I won more $$$ with vcash I would like to buy 4TB ssd.

The third VM is Windows 10 x64, with 16GB ddr4/2133, 2 cores, 4 threads.
I use it to email, office, vs2015, internet, etc. I am very happy with this
setup too.

The fourth is a small VM with Windows 8.1 and HP Photosmart C4280
software installed and device connected and on. To digitalize documents an now
a lot of oldy photographs of my family when younger.

The fifth and recently added VM vcash, with Debian 8.5.0 64bits, 8GB ddr4/2133 Skill,
4 cores, 8 threads and I happily run beta 2 of vcash.

=====================================================================

By the other hand, the Blade HP BL460C G6 with 2x Intel L5520
I had powered off it. But now I have powered on again to maintain a VM with:
Debian 8.5.0 64bits 8GB ddr3/1333MHz 1 Proccesor * 4 Cores = 8 threads

This blade only is dedicated to play with vcash, when I got any coin at my z-address or
my t-address. While I have done some adjusts to quantity of ram or number of cores to get
the best bechmark as you can happily observe at:

https://benchmark.minezcash.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

A pleasure to dedicate a moment an a few words to you.
Thank you very much.

Hello community,
Here I would like to show to you a small and smoth few pictures which you can observe
useful data like the ºC of CPU's, WorkLoads per Thread, also they were taken with
a VM with Debian 8.5.0 64bits configured with 4 Cores and 8GB ddr3/1333MHz,
the host OS is too Debian 8.5.0 64bits and VM running on VMWare 12.5.
Smothly, smothly.
I hope you like them very much.
