WildRig Multi 0.25.2 beta

DISCLAIMER(mostly for AMD miners):
Mining almost all these algorithms that WildRig Multi support isn't the same thing as mining Cryptonight family or Ethereum. These algo's more power consuming and core intensive, especially something like x16r. So please, make sure your PSU's are good enough, GPU's are rock stable and voltage for them set well. Low core voltage won't work here in most cases. If you get any instability - start from stock and find your optimal settings.

HiveOS: check update for HiveOS, it should provide latest version.

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • not all algorithms working on NVIDIA gpu's right now, and not all of them are optimized(see Release Notes)
  • broken honeycomb algoithm, last working version is 0.17.6
  • any report is welcome!

SUPPORTED GPU's:
AMD:

  • GCN 2nd gen: R7 260, R9 290, R9 295X2, R7 360, R9 390

BENCHMARKS:
Table here was too old, will be updated in future and only for some main algorithms.

OPTIMAL PARAMETERS:
Since version 0.15.2 parameters --opencl-threads and --opencl-launch set automatically when you put auto. If you want to try different values to find probably better performance, you can start from values shown below each GPU initialization line.
E.g. lines below means --opencl-threads 2 --opencl-launch 21x0. Where --opencl-launch consist of Intensity x Worksize.
Code: (log)
[2019-02-08 14:20:05] GPU #1 [BusID: #4] [Ellesmere] Radeon RX 570 Series
[2019-02-08 14:20:05] threads: 2, intensity: 21, worksize: 0/256, cu: 32, memory: 4096Mb

HINTS:

  • some algo's can boost if use parameter --opencl-threads set to 2, or even 3(e.g. phi and skunkhash, but can be unstable)
  • higher intensity not always more hashrate, try both more and less value than auto
  • try different worksize, e.g. 64 or 128 instead of mostly used 0(same as 256).

DEV-FEE:

  • by default is 1%
  • lyra2TDC, sha256csm, x17r and wildkeccak algorithms are 2%

TODO:

  • extend statistics per GPU(amount of found, rejected and stale shares)
  • improve API, show zero statistics for inactive gpu's if use --opencl-devices parameter
  • implement executing custom command when watchdog catch the gpu hang

Example of command-line start(with loop if miner crash):

Code: (bat)
@echo off

:loop

wildrig.exe --print-full --algo algo --opencl-threads auto --opencl-launch auto --url pool port --user wallet --pass password

if ERRORLEVEL 1000 goto custom
timeout /t 5
goto loop

:custom
echo Some error happened, put custom command here
timeout /t 5
goto loop
