Claymore’s Dual Ethereum

The feature of the app Claymore’s Dual Ethereum in the possibility of mining the cryptocurrency. They support dual mining of ETH+DCR, while working with Decree does not reduce the Ethereum hashrate.

Thanks to the revised software code of the miner, the efficiency of ether production increased by 3-5%. This was achieved through the optimization of the nuclei of the assembler and OpenCL code, reducing the number of overdue ball and making download the card.

FEATURES:

The main difference from Claymore”s Ethereum Classic — mode support dual mining Ethereum together Decret, Siacoin, Pascal and LBRY. However, the application has other useful features:

  • The absence of DAG-files.

  • Ability to work together on AMD and Nvidia video cards.

  • Protocol support Stratum to use pools without a proxy.

  • Automatic failover to the backup pool server.

  • Convenient management and control.

  • Detailed production statistics.

  • Overclocking of video cards thanks to the built-in function.

  • Support production forks of the air (ETC etc).

  • Miner versions for Linux and Windows.

Features of working with miner:

  • To work correctly with AMD graphics cards, you need to install drivers not lower than Catalyst 15.12.

  • Before installing them, you need to remove using a special utility from AMD earlier versions.

  • On a multi-graphics farm, you must manually set a minimum of 16 gigabytes of virtual memory.

  • The program is free, but 1% of the resources (2% came up with mining) is directed to the extraction of ether in favor of developers.

  • You can disable this option, but the resulting hashrate for the farm owner will not change.

  • The application supports only 64-bit systems and works with video cards with at least 2 gigabytes of memory.

Setting command line options

Click edit button to change this text. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

-epool    Ethereum pool address. Only Stratum protocol is supported for pools. Miner supports all pools that are compatible with Dwarfpool proxy and accept Ethereum wallet address directly.
   For solo mining, specify “http://” before address, note that this mode is not intended for proxy or HTTP pools, also “-allpools 1” will be set automatically in this mode.
   Note: The miner supports all Stratum versions for Ethereum, HTTP mode is necessary for solo mining only. 
   Using any proxies will reduce effective hashrate by at least 1%, so connect miner to Stratum pools directly. Using HTTP pools will reduce effective hashrate by at least 5%.
   Miner also supports SSL/TLS encryption for all data between miner and pool (if pool supports encryption over stratum), it significantly improves security.
   To enable encryption, use “ssl://” or “stratum+ssl://” prefix (or “tls” instead of “ssl”), for example: “-epool ssl://eu1.ethermine.org:5555”

-ewal    Your Ethereum wallet address. Also worker name and other options if pool supports it. 
   Pools that require “Login.Worker” instead of wallet address are not supported directly currently, but you can use “-allpools 1” option to mine there.

-epsw    Password for Ethereum pool, use “x” as password.

-eworker Worker name, it is required for some pools.

-esm   Ethereum Stratum mode. 0 – eth-proxy mode (for example, dwarpool.com), 1 – qtminer mode (for example, ethpool.org), 
   2 – miner-proxy mode (for example, coinotron.com), 3 – nicehash mode. 0 is default. 

-etha   Ethereum algorithm mode for AMD cards. 0 – optimized for fast cards, 1 – optimized for slow cards, 2 – for gpu-pro Linux drivers. -1 – autodetect (default, automatically selects between 0 and 1). 
   You can also set this option for every card individually, for example “-etha 0,1,0”.

-asm   (AMD cards only) enables assembler GPU kernels. In this mode some tuning is required even in ETH-only mode, use “-dcri” option or or “+/-” keys in runtime to set best speed.
   Specify “-asm 0” to disable this option. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-asm 0,1,0”. Default value is “1”.
   If ASM mode is enabled, miner must show “GPU #x: algorithm ASM” at startup.
   Check “FINE-TUNING” section below for additional notes.
   NEW: added alternative assembler kernels for Tahiti, Tonga, Ellesmere, Baffin cards for ETH-only mode. Use them if you get best speed at “-dcri 1” (i.e. you cannot find speed peak), use “-asm 2” option to enable this mode.

-oldkernels (AMD cards only) specify “-oldkernels 1” to use old-style GPU kernels from v10, they can be more stable for hard OC and custom BIOSes.

-ethi   Ethereum intensity. Default value is 8, you can decrease this value if you don’t want Windows to freeze or if you have problems with stability. The most low GPU load is “-ethi 0”.
   Also “-ethi” now can set intensity for every card individually, for example “-ethi 1,8,6”.
   You can also specify negative values, for example, “-ethi -8192”, it exactly means “global work size” parameter which is used in official miner.

-eres   this setting is related to Ethereum mining stability. Every next Ethereum epoch requires a bit more GPU memory, miner can crash during reallocating GPU buffer for new DAG. 
   To avoid it, miner reserves a bit larger GPU buffer at startup, so it can process several epochs without buffer reallocation.
   This setting defines how many epochs miner must foresee when it reserves GPU buffer, i.e. how many epochs will be processed without buffer reallocation. Default value is 2.

-allpools Specify “-allpools 1” if miner does not want to mine on specified pool (because it cannot mine devfee on that pool), but you agree to use some default pools for devfee mining. 
   Note that if devfee mining pools will stop, entire mining will be stopped too.

-allcoins Specify “-allcoins 1” to be able to mine Ethereum forks, in this mode miner will use some default pools for devfee Ethereum mining. 
   Note that if devfee mining pools will stop, entire mining will be stopped too. 
   Miner has to use two DAGs in this mode – one for Ethereum and one for Ethereum fork, it can cause crashes because DAGs have different sizes. 
   Therefore for this mode it is recommended to specify current Ethereum epoch (or a bit larger value), 
   for example, “-allcoins 47” means that miner will expect DAG size for epoch #47 and will allocate appropriate GPU buffer at starting, instead of reallocating bigger GPU buffer (may crash) when it starts devfee mining.
   Another option is to specify “-allcoins -1”, in this mode miner will start devfee round immediately after start and therefore will get current epoch for Ethereum, after that it will be able to mine Ethereum fork.
   If you mine ETC on some pool that does not accept wallet address but requires Username.Worker instead, the best way is to specify “-allcoins etc”, in this mode devfee mining will be on ETC pools and DAG won’t be recreated at all.

-etht   Time period between Ethereum HTTP requests for new job in solo mode, in milliseconds. Default value is 200ms.

-erate   send Ethereum hashrate to pool. Default value is “1”, set “-erate 0” if you don’t want to send hashrate.

-estale   send Ethereum stale shares to pool, it can increase effective hashrate a bit. Default value is “1”, set “-estale 0” if you don’t want to send stale shares.

-dpool    Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal pool address. Use “http://” prefix for HTTP pools, “stratum+tcp://” for Stratum pools. If prefix is missed, Stratum is assumed.
   Decred: both Stratum and HTTP are supported. Siacoin: both Stratum and HTTP are supported, though note that not all Stratum versions are supported currently. Lbry: only Stratum is supported.

-dwal   Your Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal wallet address or worker name, it depends on pool.

-dpsw    Password for Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal pool.

-di    GPU indexes, default is all available GPUs. For example, if you have four GPUs “-di 02” will enable only first and third GPUs (#0 and #2).
   You can also turn on/off cards in runtime with “0”…”9″ keys and check current statistics with “s” key.
   For systems with more than 10 GPUs: use letters to specify indexes more than 9, for example, “a” means index 10, “b” means index 11, etc; also “a”, “b”, and “c” keys allow you to turn on/off GPU #10, #11 and #12 in runtime.

-gser   this setting can improve stability on multi-GPU systems if miner hangs during startup. It serializes GPUs initalization routines. Use “-gser 1” to serailize some of routines and “-gser 2” to serialize all routines. 
   Using values higher than 2 allows you also to set custom delay between DAG generation on GPUs, for example, “-gser 5” means same as “-gser 2” and also adds 3sec delay between DAG generation (can be useful for buggy drivers and/or weak PSU).
   Default value is “0” (no serialization, fast initialization).

-mode   Select mining mode:
   “-mode 0” (default) means dual Ethereum + Decred/Siacoin/Lbry mining mode.
   “-mode 1” means Ethereum-only mining mode. You can set this mode for every card individually, for example, “-mode 1-02” will set mode “1” for first and third GPUs (#0 and #2).
   For systems with more than 10 GPUs: use letters to specify indexes more than 9, for example, “a” means index 10, “b” means index 11, etc.

-dcoin   select second coin to mine in dual mode. Possible options are “-dcoin dcr”, “-dcoin sc”, “-dcoin lbc”, “-dcoin pasc”, “-dcoin blake2s”, “-dcoin keccak”. Default value is “dcr”.

-dcri   Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal intensity, or Ethereum fine-tuning value in ETH-only ASM mode. Default value is 30, you can adjust this value to get the best Decred/Siacoin/Lbry mining speed without reducing Ethereum mining speed. 
   You can also specify values for every card, for example “-dcri 30,100,50”.
   You can change the intensity in runtime with “+” and “-” keys and also use “x” key to select single GPU for intensity adjustment.
   For example, by default (-dcri 30) 390 card shows 29MH/s for Ethereum and 440MH/s for Decred. Setting -dcri 70 causes 24MH/s for Ethereum and 850MH/s for Decred.
   Use this option in ETH-only ASM mode for fine tuning, read “FINE-TUNING” section below.
   If you did not specify “-dcri” option in ETH-only ASM mode, miner will detect best -dcri values automatically, you can also press “z” key to do it.

-dcrt   Time period between Decred/Siacoin HTTP requests for new job, in seconds. Default value is 5 seconds.

-ftime   failover main pool switch time, in minutes, see “Failover” section below. Default value is 30 minutes, set zero if there is no main pool.

-wd    watchdog option. Default value is “-wd 1”, it enables watchdog, miner will be closed (or restarted, see “-r” option) if any thread is not responding for 1 minute or OpenCL call failed.
   Specify “-wd 0” to disable watchdog.

-r   Restart miner mode. “-r 0” (default) – restart miner if something wrong with GPU. “-r -1” – disable automatic restarting. -r >20 – restart miner if something 
   wrong with GPU or by timer. For example, “-r 60” – restart miner every hour or when some GPU failed.
   “-r 1” closes miner and execute “reboot.bat” file (“reboot.bash” or “reboot.sh” for Linux version) in the miner directory (if exists) if some GPU failed. 
   So you can create “reboot.bat” file and perform some actions, for example, reboot system if you put this line there: “shutdown /r /t 5 /f”.

-minspeed   minimal speed for ETH, in MH/s. If miner cannot reach this speed for 5 minutes for any reason, miner will be restarted (or “reboot.bat” will be executed if “-r 1” is set). Default value is 0 (feature disabled).
   You can also specify negative values if you don’t want to restart miner due to pool connection issues; for example, “-minspeed -50” will restart miner only if it cannot reach 50Mh/s at good pool connection.

-retrydelay   delay, in seconds, between connection attempts. Default values is “20”. Specify “-retrydelay -1” if you don’t need reconnection, in this mode miner will exit if connection is lost.

-dbg   debug log and messages. “-dbg 0” – (default) create log file but don’t show debug messages. 
   “-dbg 1” – create log file and show debug messages. “-dbg -1” – no log file and no debug messages.

-logfile   debug log file name. After restart, miner will append new log data to the same file. If you want to clear old log data, file name must contain “noappend” string.
   If missed, default file name will be used. You can also use this option to specify folder for log files, use slash at the end to do it, for example, “-logfile logs\”.

-logsmaxsize   maximal size of debug log files, in MB. At every start the miner checks all files in its folder, selects all files that contain “_log.txt” string and removes oldest files if summary files size is larger than specified value. 
   Specify “-logsmaxsize 0” to cancel old logs removal. Default value is 1000 (i.e. about 1GB of log files are allowed).

-nofee   set “1” to cancel my developer fee at all. In this mode some optimizations are disabled so mining speed will be slower by about 3%. 
   By enabling this mode, I will lose 100% of my earnings, you will lose only about 2% of your earnings.
   So you have a choice: “fastest miner” or “completely free miner but a bit slower”.
   If you want both “fastest” and “completely free” you should find some other miner that meets your requirements, just don’t use this miner instead of claiming that I need 
   to cancel/reduce developer fee, saying that 1% developer fee is too much for this miner and so on.

-benchmark   benchmark mode, specify “-benchmark 1” to see hashrate for your hardware. You can also specify epoch number for benchmark, for example, “-benchmark 110”.

-li   low intensity mode. Reduces mining intensity, useful if your cards are overheated. Note that mining speed is reduced too. 
   More value means less heat and mining speed, for example, “-li 10” is less heat and mining speed than “-li 1”. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-li 3,10,50”.
   Default value is “0” – no low intensity mode.

-lidag   low intensity mode for DAG generation, it can help with OC or weak PSU. Supported values are 0, 1, 2, 3, more value means lower intensity. Example: “-lidag 1”.
   You can also specify values for every card, for example “-lidag 1,0,3”. Default value is “0” (no low intensity for DAG generation).

-ejobtimeout   job timeout for ETH, in minutes. If miner does not get new jobs for this time, it will disconnect from pool. Default value is 10.

-djobtimeout   job timeout for second coin in dual mode, in minutes. If miner does not get new jobs for this time, it will disconnect from pool. Default value is 30.

-tt   set target GPU temperature. For example, “-tt 80” means 80C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-tt 70,80,75”.
   You can also set static fan speed if you specify negative values, for example “-tt -50” sets 50% fan speed. Specify zero to disable control and hide GPU statistics.
   “-tt 1” (default) does not manage fans but shows GPU temperature and fan status every 30 seconds. Specify values 2..5 if it is too often.
   Note: for NVIDIA cards in Linux OS temperature management is not supported, only temperature monitoring is supported.
   Note: for Linux gpu-pro drivers, miner must have root access to manage fans, otherwise only monitoring will be available.

-ttdcr   reduce Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal intensity automatically if GPU temperature is above specified value. For example, “-ttdcr 80” reduces Decred intensity if GPU temperature is above 80C. 
   You can see current Decred intensity coefficients in detailed statistics (“s” key). So if you set “-dcri 50” but Decred/Siacoin intensity coefficient is 20% it means that GPU currently mines Decred/Siacoin at “-dcri 10”.
   You can also specify values for every card, for example “-ttdcr 80,85,80”. You also should specify non-zero value for “-tt” option to enable this option.
   It is a good idea to set “-ttdcr” value higher than “-tt” value by 3-5C.

-ttli   reduce entire mining intensity (for all coins) automatically if GPU temperature is above specified value. For example, “-ttli 80” reduces mining intensity if GPU temperature is above 80C.
   You can see if intensity was reduced in detailed statistics (“s” key).
   You can also specify values for every card, for example “-ttli 80,85,80”. You also should specify non-zero value for “-tt” option to enable this option.
   It is a good idea to set “-ttli” value higher than “-tt” value by 3-5C.

-tstop   set stop GPU temperature, miner will stop mining if GPU reaches specified temperature. For example, “-tstop 95” means 95C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-tstop 95,85,90”.
   This feature is disabled by default (“-tstop 0”). You also should specify non-zero value for “-tt” option to enable this option.
   If it turned off wrong card, it will close miner in 30 seconds.
   You can also specify negative value to close miner immediately instead of stopping GPU, for example, “-tstop -95” will close miner as soon as any GPU reach 95C temperature.

-tstart   set start temperature for overheated GPU that was previously stopped with “-tstop” option. For example, “-tstop 95 -tstart 50” disables GPU when it reaches 95C and re-enables it when it reaches 50C.
   You can also specify values for every card, for example “-tstart 50,55,50”. Note that “-tstart” option value must be less than “-tstop” option value.
   This feature is disabled by default (“-tstart 0”). You also should specify non-zero value for “-tt” option to enable this option.

-fanmax   set maximal fan speed, in percents, for example, “-fanmax 80” will set maximal fans speed to 80%. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-fanmax 50,60,70”.
   This option works only if miner manages cooling, i.e. when “-tt” option is used to specify target temperature. Default value is “100”.
   Note: for NVIDIA cards this option is supported in Windows only.

-fanmin   set minimal fan speed, in percents, for example, “-fanmin 50” will set minimal fans speed to 50%. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-fanmin 50,60,70”.
   This option works only if miner manages cooling, i.e. when “-tt” option is used to specify target temperature. Default value is “0”.
   Note: for NVIDIA cards this option is supported in Windows only.

-cclock   set target GPU core clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-cclock 1000,1050,1100,0”.
   For NVIDIA you can also specify delta clock by using “+” and “-” prefix, for example, “-cclock +300,-400,+0”.
   Note: for some drivers versions AMD blocked underclocking for some reason, you can overclock only.
   Note: this option changes clocks for all power states, so check voltage for all power states in WattMan or use -cvddc option.  
   By default, low power states have low voltage, setting high GPU clock for low power states without increasing voltage can cause driver crash.
   Note: for NVIDIA cards this option is supported in Windows only. 

-mclock   set target GPU memory clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-mclock 1200,1250,1200,0”.
   For NVIDIA you can also specify delta clock by using “+” and “-” prefix, for example, “-cclock +300,-400,+0”.
   Note: for some drivers versions AMD blocked underclocking for some reason, you can overclock only.
   Note: for NVIDIA cards this option is supported in Windows only.

-powlim set power limit, usually from -50 to 50. For example, “-powlim -20” means 80% power limit. If not specified, miner will not change power limit. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-powlim 20,-20,0,10”.
   Note: for NVIDIA cards this option is supported in Windows only.

-cvddc   set target GPU core voltage, multiplied by 1000. For example, “-cvddc 1050” means 1.05V. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-cvddc 900,950,1000,970”. Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows.
   Note: for NVIDIA cards this option is not supported.

-mvddc   set target GPU memory voltage, multiplied by 1000. For example, “-mvddc 1050” means 1.05V. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-mvddc 900,950,1000,970”. Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows.
   Note: for NVIDIA cards this option is not supported.

-mport   remote monitoring/management port. Default value is -3333 (read-only mode), specify “-mport 0” to disable remote monitoring/management feature. 
   Specify negative value to enable monitoring (get statistics) but disable management (restart, uploading files), for example, “-mport -3333” enables port 3333 for remote monitoring, but remote management will be blocked.
   You can also use your web browser to see current miner state, for example, type “localhost:3333” in web browser. 
   Warning: use negative option value or disable remote management entirely if you think that you can be attacked via this port!
   By default, miner will accept connections on specified port on all network adapters, but you can select desired network interface directly, for example, “-mport 127.0.0.1:3333” opens port on localhost only.

-mpsw   remote monitoring/management password. By default it is empty, so everyone can ask statistics or manage miner remotely if “-mport” option is set. You can set password for remote access (at least EthMan v3.0 is required to support passwords).

-colors enables or disables colored text in console. Default value is “1”, use “-colors 0” to disable coloring. Use 2…4 values to remove some of colors.

-v   displays miner version, sample usage: “-v 1”.

-altnum   alternative GPU indexing. This option does not change GPU order, but just changes GPU indexes that miner displays, it can be useful in some cases. Possible values are:
   0: default GPU indexing. For example, if you specify “-di 05” to select first and last GPUs of six GPUs installed, miner will display these two selected cards as “GPU0” and “GPU1”.
   1: same as “0”, but start indexes from one instead of zero. For example, if you specify “-di 05” to select first and last GPUs of six GPUs installed, miner will display these two selected cards as “GPU1” and “GPU2”.
   2: alternative GPU indexing. For example, if you specify “-di 05” to select first and last GPUs of six GPUs installed, miner will display these two selected cards as “GPU0” and “GPU5”.
   3: same as “2”, but start indexes from one instead of zero. For example, if you specify “-di 05” to select first and last GPUs of six GPUs installed, miner will display these two selected cards as “GPU1” and “GPU6”.
   Default value is “0”.

-platform   selects GPUs manufacturer. 1 – use AMD GPUs only. 2 – use NVIDIA GPUs only. 3 – use both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs. Default value is “3”.

-checkcert   only for SSL connection: verify pool certificate. Default value is “1” (verify), use “-checkcert 0” to skip certificate verification.

-epoolsfile   failover filename for ETH, default value is “epools.txt”.

-dpoolsfile   failover filename for seconds coin, default value is “dpools.txt”.

-y   enables Compute Mode and disables CrossFire for AMD cards. “-y 1” works as pressing “y” key when miner starts. This option works in Windows only.

-showdiff   use “-showdiff 1” to show difficulty for every ETH share and to display maximal found share difficulty when you press “s” key. Default value is “0”.

Configuration file

To control the mining of ether and decree, you can use the configuration file rather than the command-line parameters specified in the “batch”. If there is no special option, the application automatically checks the root folder for config.txt. The command line takes precedence. If the commands in it differ from the commands specified in config.txt, manners will ignore the lines from the file. Mining options must be specified on a new line. Lines starting with”; ” and ” # ” are ignored.

Fine tuning

Users are interested in how to optimally configure Claymore for double mining. The best way is to adjust the hashrate of the second crypto coin so that it does not affect the hashrate for the ether or the Ethereum classic. To do this, start dual mining and adjust the DCR speed by pressing the “+” and “-“buttons. The peak speed is very short, so you need to change the value very smoothly, one by one.

Known issue

  • Dual mining speed on AMD cards is not always stable.

  • A list of temperatures and of AMD graphics may vary when using drivers for Linux gpu-pro. This can be corrected by using the “-di ” key.

  • When working with LBC PoW, the hashrate of the ether in the double production mode is reduced.

  • The miner is recognized by Windows Defender as virus SOFTWARE. Therefore, it should be added to the exceptions.

  • Despite the closed source code, the program has an excellent reputation and is not seen to harm or steal passwords.

FAQ

– Miner works too slowly when I mine ETH/ETC but works fine when I mine some ETH fork.
  Check if you enabled “Compute Mode” in AMD drivers, also you can press “y” key to turn on “Compute Mode” in AMD drivers for all cards (Windows only).

– I cannot mine ETH/ETC with Nvidia 3GB card in Windows 10.
  Windows 10 internally allocates about 20% of GPU memory so applications can use only 80% of GPU memory. Use Windows 7 or Linux. 

– I see 0% devfee for all 2GB and 3GB cards in Windows 10, my rig has some 3GB cards and some 6GB cards, how is the fee calculated in this case?
  During devfee mining 3GB cards still mine for you. How does it work? Miner creates second connection for devfee mining, main connection still works and 3GB cards still find shares for it. 
  You can see these shares in the log file, all devfee shares contain “Devfee:” string, normal shares don’t contain this string and 3GB cards can find them during devfee mining as well.
  Note that devfee mining takes only 36 or 54 seconds per hour so it can take many hours to find normal shares during devfee mining.

– What is dwarfpool proxy (eth-proxy)?
Official Ethereum miner does not support Stratum protocol, it supports HTTP protocol only. It causes less profit because of delays.
A proxy was created to fix it, so official Ethereum miner is locally connected to the proxy by HTTP protocol, for local network delays due to HTTP protocol are small. Proxy is connected to the pool via Stratum protocol so it has small delays too. Currently most pools support Stratum and you have to use HTTP-to-Stratum proxy to make official miner work with pools properly. Of course you can try to connect official miner to a pool directly via HTTP but you will lose 10-20% shares because of a short block time in Ethereum.
This miner does not use HTTP protocol, it uses Stratum directly. So you should connect it directly to the pool at Stratum port and it will work a bit faster than official miner via proxy because there is no proxy between miner and pool.

– What command option X means?
  Read “Readme!!!.txt”, “COMMAND LINE OPTIONS” section.

– How to mine using pool X?
  Read “Readme!!!.txt”, “SAMPLE USAGE” section.

– Windows 10 marks miner as a virus.
  Read “Readme!!!.txt”, “KNOWN ISSUES” section.

– Can miner stop overheated GPU?
  Yes, see “-tstop” option.

– Why this command line doesn’t work (escaping ‘&’)?
  Char ‘&’ in command line means command separator, to use it in command line either quote string with “”, or escape ‘&’ (use ^& on Windows).
  No need to do this in *pools.txt or config.txt.
  Also all command line options must be in same line in .bat file, don’t split them to several lines, it won’t work.

– How to mine Decred or Sia ONLY with this Ethereum Dual miner?
  No way. It is Ethereum miner with extra bonus coins. To mine extra coins only use other miners.

– Why Ethereum hashrate in Dual mode is higher than in Single mode?
  Hardware feature, accept it as an extra bonus.

– Is 15.12 driver mandatory?
  Usually latest drivers work well. But there are some reports of people where they don’t. So 15.12 is recommended.

– Will newer drivers have higher/lower hashrate?
  Usually no, but it depends… Check for yourself.

– Why miner on Linux with stock card settings gives a bit lower hashrate than on Windows?
  This probably is the difference in time calculations on both platforms. In reality the accepted hashrate is usually the same.

– Why -cclock/-mclock options do not work?
  Sometimes they do not work. Use Afterburner or Trixx on Windows, atitweak and other tools on Linux instead.

– Why my GPU is 10C hotter in Dual mode?
  This is a price for the extra work done. It also consumes more power, so make sure your PSU has sufficient power.

– Can the temperature be lowered?
  Yes, see “-tt”, “-dcri”, “-ttdcr”, “-li”, “-ttli” options.

– How can I undervolt my cards on Linux?
  Usually only by flashing modified GPU BIOS. Unfortunately, no standard way of doing so.

– Why pool shows less hashrate than miner?
  On my test rigs I use miner with default settings and on pool I see about 4-5% less than miner shows (my hashrate is about 800MH/s if I turn on all rigs). 
  Miner shows “raw” hashrate, 2% is devfee in dual mode, other 2-3% can be related to the connection quality, current pool status/luck or/and may be something else. 
  Also, from my calculations miner loses about 0.5-1% because it cannot drop current GPU round when it gets new job, it is related to “-ethi” value, so I made it 8 by default instead of 16.
  But if on pool you see 10% less than miner shows all the time – something is wrong with your pool, your connection to internet or your hashrate is low and you did not wait enough time to see average hashrate for 24 hours. 
  Usually I use “ethpool” pool for tests.

– I see only one card via Remote Desktop Connection.
  It’s a problem of RDC, use TeamViewer or some other remote access software. Or try to use latest version of the miner.

– I see only one card instead of two in temperature management info.
  Disable CrossFire, don’t use Remote Desktop Connection. Or try to use latest version of the miner.

– Miner works in ETH-only mode but crashes in dual mode.
  Dual mode requires more power, so make sure PSU power is enough and check GPU clocks if you OC’ed them.

– Error “server: bind failed with error”.
  Specify “-mport 0” option.

– How can I get stats from miner as EthMan does?
  Check API.txt file for json protocol details.

– I cannot mine Ethereum with 2GB card.
  Yes, you cannot mine Ethereum or Ethereum Classic with 2GB cards anymore. But you can mine other Ethereum forks.

– I mine ETH fork on my 2GB cards. For devfee miner tries to mine ETH and it fails because ETH cannot be mined on 2GB cards.
– Use “-allcoins exp -allpools 1” options.

– On dual mining, if one of my miners has 6 cards, with 2 dual mining and 4 single mining, is devfee 1% or 2%? 
  As soon as you enable dual mining, devfee is 2% for all cards. But you can start two miner instances and split cards between them to get 1% on first instance and 2% on second.

– Miner freezes if I put cursor to its window in Windows 10 until any key is pressed. Sometimes miner freezes randomly until any key is pressed.
  You should make some changes in Windows:
  https://superuser.com/questions/555160/windows-command-prompt-freezing-on-focus
  https://superuser.com/questions/419717/windows-command-prompt-freezing-randomly?rq=1
  https://superuser.com/questions/1051821/command-prompt-random-pause?rq=1

– Sometimes miner cannot connect to devfee mining server at first attempt, does it cause longer devfee mining?
  No, during these connection attempts miner still mines for you. 

– I upgraded from v8.x (or earlier) to v9.x, I mine ETH-only and I see v9.x is slower than v8.x, why?
  In v9.x you should find best -dcri value even in ETH-only mode, check “FINE-TUNING” section. If you don’t want to do it, use “-asm 0” option to use old GPU kernels.

– How many cards are supported?
  Miner supports up to 32 GPUs.

– Miner crashed and I cannot restart it until reboot.
  Often when OpenCL fails, you have to reboot the system, not just restart miner. Sometimes even soft reboot won’t work and you have to press Reset button. It is because the fail is at drivers level, Windows does not like such things and drivers too.

– EthMan loses rigs with 12 GPUs.
  Sometimes systems with 12 GPUs and low-end CPU become slow for remote access, you can see problems with EthMan and other remote management software.
