Zcash - 1.0.0-rc2 using option equihashsolver=tromp


#1

Trying to receive my H/s with the new rc2 with cmd:

zcash-cli zcbenchmark solveequihash 10

But CPU idle a lot -> 20% usage (tested on 2 different Server on a hyper-v partition). Using the settings:

cat ~/.zcash/zcash.conf
testnet=1
addnode=betatestnet.z.cash
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
gen=0
genproclimit=8
equihashsolver=tromp

Is this behaviour normal?

And the results are not really fast:

[
{
"runningtime" : 36.39379900
},
{
"runningtime" : 63.20548900
},
{
"runningtime" : 52.21494200
},
{
"runningtime" : 18.43399900
},
{
"runningtime" : 37.41880200
},
{
"runningtime" : 71.36738400
},
{
"runningtime" : 51.50500800
},
{
"runningtime" : 19.01770600
},
{
"runningtime" : 52.68153300
},
{
"runningtime" : 86.84699500
}
]

When I start mining (zcash-cli setgenerate true) every 8 vCPU are used 100%.

Thanks

got it, if someone else got this problem. Forget use zcbenchmark solveequihash 10, and start the daemon with -showmetrics=1.
