How to use all the threads in nheqminer?


#1

Anyone know how can I use use 8 threads instead 6 ?

when I start the miner I see this, but I would like to use all the threads I have

[22:05:34][0x00007f17c733e722] stratum | Starting miner
[22:05:34][0x00007f17c5507722] miner#2 | Starting thread #2
[22:05:34][0x00007f17c4d06722] miner#3 | Starting thread #3
[22:05:34][0x00007f17c6509722] miner#0 | Starting thread #0
[22:05:34][0x00007f17b7fff722] miner#4 | Starting thread #4
[22:05:34][0x00007f17c5d08722] miner#1 | Starting thread #1
[22:05:34][0x00007f17b77fe722] miner#5 | Starting thread #5


#2

On linux check in .zcash/zcash.conf the line :
genproclimit=X (with X number of threads)


#3

Add -t 8 to your start up command or batch file


#4

Start your miner using:

./nheqminer -u username.worker -p password -t 8

Replace username.worker with your username and worker, and replace password with your password. That should work.


#5

where does this password come from?


#6

Well only use password and username.worker if you're in a pool that requires an account like Suprnova. Those would be to start mining into your account. Otherwise you can just use -t 8 like @cascadiacrypto said.


#7

you will get an equivalent hash rate with 75-100% of cores in use; its recommended to use 75% so it won't bog the machine down. this is why neqminer does it by default.


#8

I've heard that but I don't think that's true because I have made tests using all the threads and using default options (75% of the threads) and the results are more or less the same (a bit better if using all the threads).


#9

thats pretty much what i just said.


#10

Can anyone give any guidance on how to start the miner? I'm totally stuck...


#11

apt-get update
apt-get install -y cmake build-essential libboost-all-dev screen git
git clone https://github.com/ocminer/nheqminer.git
cd nheqminer/nheqminer
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make
./nheqminer -u

where is your suprnova username followed by a dot, followed by your worker name
