Howdee folks! After installing PrimeCoin and letting it catch up, I found that I’m not getting any info (PPS) within the console window. Any thoughts? Cores are blazing away so I know its doing something. Thanks
You must be using version 12 of the high performance miner:
Changes in -hp12 (ann):
* IMPORTANT: Fix for multiple machines doing the same work if wallet is shared.
* New chain statistics in debug.log.
[u][b]* Removed 'primespersec' from the output of getmininginfo.[/b][/u]
* Removed 'chainspermin' metric.
* Replaced -sievepercentage parameter with -sievefilterprimes.
* New parameter -l1cachesize for specifying the size of sieve segments.
* Added new blocks/day metric which tries to estimate how many blocks will be found at current difficulty.
* Better automatic adjustment of primorial factor.
* New parameter -primorial for manual adjustment of primorial.
* Implemented early support for v0.2 proposal (needs to be enabled with -miningprotocol=2).
* David's fix for getwork.
* Updated to Bitcoin v0.8.6 codebase.
* Improved the checking of BiTwin chain candidates. As a consequence, short BiTwin chains (1 or 2 primes) are now counted correctly in the mining statistics. Primes/h is now much higher due to this.
* The Qt application is now titled Primecoin High Performance.
* Fixes for Mac OS X and the Clang compiler.
* Revised default sieve parameters.
* Added an automatic donation feature when a new block is found. The -donationpercentage allows a percentage of the block reward to be donated to an address. E.g. passing the command-line parameter -donationpercentage=1.5 will donate 1.5% of every block to the developer. Alternatively, this value can be set in primecoin.conf. Also, the default address can be changed using -donationaddress.
Okzx - you might be onto something. though the client doesnt say what version I’m using, I am using the latest high performance miner from the directory. Even though they removed that option, how will I know I’m successfully mining?
The chains per day would be your best bet. That is an estimate of how many 10 chains you should find per day. I do not believe that takes into consideration the fractional difficulty. So it does not indicate how many blocks you should find a day. After looking at it just now, that’s probably what the blocksperday means.
