If you are on here, you should be on the STH pool by now. Lower fees too.

I'd say we need to push the pool to 700KH/s+ and beat Sumominer

I'm at 70k so far.

Still trying to work out the best settings. Enabling all cores provides a significant performance boost on 10-core E5-2660v2 / E5-2680v2 compared to enabling 6 cores. No significant improvement for 8 cores enabled on E5-2660v1 vs 6 cores enabled.

For monero, 6 cores on either of those cpus is ideal for power and also provides near the performance of all-cores-enabled. Aeon seems to benefit more from the extra cores. Haven't found the sweet spot yet, will keep testing.

Once I have a better idea how much power this needs and the correct cores settings for bios, I can move over more monero miners to aeon.

Typical optimized results thus far:

Dual E5-2660v1 -- 2800h/s
Dual E5-2660v2 -- 3500h/s
Dual E5-2680v2 -- 4300h/s

Initial results point towards much higher power use compared to monero mining. Will see how that settles out before posting hard numbers.

Speaking of, are there some best practices / recommended settings / setup steps for mining Aeon in windows? My vega mining boxes need to run windows. Not currently mining anything on the cpus (single or dual e5v1 or v2 on these)

I have not done windows but those are some great numbers. 2x 10C / 20T E5-2630 V3's are just under 3.6KH/s. Fairly similar to what you are getting on the 10C similar clocked E5-2660 V2.

Yup : )

Pro tip: run one docker instance for your "real cores" and a separate one for your "hyperthreaded cores". On a dual cpu system with one numa node per cpu, that means 4 docker instances.

On the 2660v2 / 2680v2, 10 threads on each "real cores" instance, and 1 or 2 threads on each "hyperthreading" instance.

I was thinking about that but had not tried it yet.

@funkywizard

I tried on the E5-2699 V4 box which was best with 27 av=2 threads each.

1x CPU was 3280H/s with a 27 thread container
1x CPU two container is 2571 (22 physical cores) + 548H/s (5 HT threads)

Somewhat strange but seems better with 2 v. 4.

I had inconsistent results until I tried it. If I was lucky and "hit the right cores" it would be the same speed, but could just as easily be much lower. Extra docker instances made a solid difference there.

Ok since that is an odd 55MB L3 cache chip, I tried something different. 4x containers. 2x 27 av=2, 2x 1 av=1 (for that extra MB L3 cache)

6600H/s. Ever so slight of an improvement.

For what it's worth, on the hyperthread instance, I added all the hyperthread cores to the allowed threads, even though I only had a minimal number of allowed threads. May allow the task scheduler to move the hyperthread processes to whichever core has a bit of spare time, vs pinning them to a specific core.

Also, I'm only running 4 containers on 2-cpu systems. 2 per cpu.

Anyway, I'd be interested to see how this works on other cpus as well. Run av=2 on all the real cores, and av=1 to use up the remaining cache on the hyperthreading instance. On a dual e5-2660v2 or 2680v2 with all cores enabled, there would be 5MB cache left over after using 10 cores of av=2 on the "real cores". So could try up to 5 threads of av=1 on the second instance.

Equally, it may turn out you'd want to do the reverse -- 13-16 cores of av=1 and 4-6 cores of av=2 would use most/all the cores (hyperthreaded and otherwise) and also all the cache. Though I'm not sure how you'd balance it -- 10x av1 on all real cores, 6 av1 on 6 of the 10 hyperthreads, and 4 av2 on the other 4 hyperthreads?

Get's complicated in a hurry, but may squeeze a couple percent.

Just repointed my nodes at the STH pool 12.5 KH/s or so, 4x E5-2670 v1 dual socket nodes default config for xmr-stak

Is there a recommended proxy for the pool software used on the STH pool and AEON mining?

Code:

Looks like I added about 27KH/s today. Likely only for short-term but still pushing the pool towards 1MH/s.

Dual E5-2660 v1 with 5 active cores
[2017-12-12 18:25:48] speed 2.5s/60s/15m 2831.2 2829.6 2829.1 H/s max: 2858.9 H/s
I think my HP S6500 systems support setting 5 cores on E5-2660v1, I should try that out. Most of my v1 servers, the bios only allows setting an even number of cores. Go figure.
