I successfully set up CPU mining on Hyper-V with Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS and mined some test coins.
I dedicated 4 virtual processors (from total 8) and 8Gb RAM to the VPS (my processor is Intel i7-6700K at 4GHz).
It is strange for me that the CPU load is very low - about 12% of the total virtual CPUs.
I was expecting to get 100% load and I can’t explain why it is low, may be testnet difficulty is very low, I am not sure.
Do you have any ideas why CPU is not high loaded?
Do you have
in zcash.conf ?
thanks for your reply
I have gen=1 (I am mining some coins, like 40 for 24 hours)
second one - didn’t had it in zcash.conf
I tried with procgenlimit=numberofcores
also with procgenlimit=4
same result about 12% of virtual CPU load
On a 2 core Im getting 50% so I guess yours is a 4-6 core ?
Let me check on my 6 core and get back to you
My real CPU have 4 cores but Hyper-V allow me to choose up to 8 virtual CPUS which is strange
It should be
