    Nice Update for Miniz! I use it for equihash since a long time. Would like try it for ETH but it missing something.

    I have a Nvidia 1060 with Hynix GDDR5 memory. These card hash 19 MH instead of 24 like all other 1060. Trex miner and phonix miner have a Bootstrap or memory tweak option. When activate this option, I get 24 MH.

    If you could add this, I,ll be able to use mini Z.

     

    Thx!

      Hi Frederic Gagnon,

      Thank you for your suggestion and for your preference!

      Which OS are you using? For Linux this should be fairly easy to implement.

      Cheers

    Hello guys!

    I have this code

    QByteArray postData;
    postData.append("method=getstat");
    
    QNetworkRequest request(QUrl("http://127.0.0.1:20000/"));
    request.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentTypeHeader, "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
    m_http_api_gpu_miner_manager->post(request, postData);

    but i always get an error:

    QNetworkReply::RemoteHostClosedError

    How i can fix this error?

    PS. Also, I saw that the Chrome browser can’t get a response through a request like localhost_url/?method=getstat like my code, but the IE browser does it without problems.

      Hi Till,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      Could you try this:

      QTcpSocket socket;
      socket.connectToHost("127.0.0.1", 20000);
      socket.write(" getstat");
      socket.waitForReadyRead(3000);
      QString data= socket.readAll();
      qDebug() << data.mid(data.indexOf('{'));

      Let us know how it goes.
      Cheers

    QString data= socket.readAll();

    returns an empty string.

    Maybe i need send to socket some JSON or something else (not simple string ” getstat”)?

    • Till says:

      ADD: PS. I know that my code probably works because I use it to work with other miners (both versions via Socket and HTTP requests).

      • miniZ says:

        Hi Till,

        Thank you for the feedback.

        Strange, it worked for us, but maybe it is because we tested on linux…

        At the moment miniZ will reply only with the json string. It does not send the http headers, so QT doesn’t work when using QNetworkRequest.

        We’ll include http headers in the next version!

        Cheers

    Hi, so I did everything for my 3060 and I also did  –tune=5 and  the result was 34.80 MH/s, can’t go more than that, it must go up to 40MH/s.

    I’m running it on linux 5.4.0-hiveos btw.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Sheraim,
      With driver 460.39 it may reach 40 MH/s.
      With recent drivers ~35MH/s is OK.
      Maybe we’ll be able to make a small improvement for the next version.
      Cheers
