    Just in time... My servers are barely earning their power cost right now... :(

    Thanks for the update, has the donate.h file been adjusted so that the donation level is 0?

    My dual 2660v2's hash at 1010 h/s with one 4GB stick. My server originally came with 256GB, I didn't notice any difference apart from less power usage after removing all the sticks. I also underclocked the remaining stick of memory.

    As for numa nodes, I tried to understand what it meant and couldn't get my head around it, so I just run one instance of XMRig and set 'cpu-affinity' to null and it auto configured it and works great. I'm not sure why people try to work out all the affinity manually if XMrig just picks the best setting automatically.

    From what I've learnt the actual mining workload takes place within the L3 cache as opposed to the RAM. The most important setting I found was telling XMRig to use 23 threads as opposed to 24. I'm running XMrig 2.5.0, haven't bothered to update to 2.5.1 or 2.5.2 as there's issues. 2.5.0 also supports the hardfork.

    Updated the images to xmrig 2.5.2 for the hard fork. Please use this one going forward.

    Patrick,

    QQ does the universal docker image also support GPU's or is it strictly cpu only?

    I’m interested in GPU support as well. Back in September of last year I had a huge issue getting my Vegas to run on Ubuntu. Lost a lot of time with the amdpro graphics issues.

    Currently setting up 4 workstations with GPUs. I only own a single nvidia 1060. A rx580 and Vega 56

    Although most of my crypto gains have been huge via trading on gdax. I actually traded up a bunch of ETH! Increased my holdings by 30% watching the controlled bitmex leverage shorting going on.

    I’m ready to mine again!! Looking at the CLI is much more interesting than the book in gdax.

    I have recently setup docker on a cluster of Odroid XU4 boards and am trying to run the docker image from the blog post to use minergate and cpus to mine xmr. How do I know if it is working? Can anyone here be of assistance? If I can figure out the power consumption and hashrate on this guy I may buy 3 or 4 more to fill up my 24 port switch....if it is going to be worth it.

    Same here, pool doesn't change for me , it still mines at dwarfpool

    general question, what is the XMR hashrate expected from 4 x E7 8870 V1, ??? I am getting about 1150 H/S

    Not sure what you are saying, but I couldn't change the pool when I specified the 'pool=' in the docker command as provided in the example on the first post.

    regards

    Hi, first time on STH but been a lurker for years; great website, love the benchmarks, love your direction, love the open source.

    I just wanted to confirm, I have the same problem with a bunch of physical and virtual machine - my usual choice is nanopool and I kinda' hate dwarfpool mainly because doesn't even show all my miners so I don't know if they are mining in fact even if the miner is reporting OK.

    Point being that for a long time if you set any nanopool pool in the universal container (previously working) just hangs and throws an error like it's stuck with the dwarfish stuff. So have to default for dwarfpool... hate it, really.

    Here is the command:
    Code:
    docker run -it -e username=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXTHEWALLETADDRESSXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -e workerid=PC -e pool=xmr-eu2.nanopool.org -e startport=14444 -e numthreads=4 --cpuset-cpus="0-3" servethehome/universal_cryptonight:latest

    Here are the last bits, and that's the point the miner freezes, nothing else gets displayed:

    Code:
    [100%] Built target xmrig
    $donate is empty
     * VERSIONS:     XMRig/2.6.2 libuv/1.18.0 gcc/7.3.0

    Just as a heads-up this has been updated for the hardfork. You just need to docker pull the image again and restart the miners.
