Too low for 2x 8 core V1's. Are you running anything else on the server? the output of "docker ps" is only the one mining image?

The only other thing I have running are 2 1070s (GPUs) that are mining ETH. I didn't think it would matter since they're GPU bound, but I can try stopping them to see if it makes a difference. What H/s should I expect to get?

Maybe it's worth stopping those as well just to see. Here's the list Monero Mining Performance

If the eth mining is using CPU cache to manage GPU data maybe it's hurting hashrate? You can do stuff on cores in L1 and L2 but if you hit L3 cache it kills xmr mining on cpu.

Easy experiment right?

Ok, just stopped the eth mining and I'm at 750-860H/s. On the mining performance thread it shows 969H/s for the E5-2680 V3, but I have the V1 so I guess this looks alright?

I would use the E5-2670 V1 as close and so your number looks right.

That's good news since we at least know what the issue is.

NM I posted in the wrong thread......:oops:

EDIT:
Well instead of wasting a post here is a pic of two nodes of my first open compute server running 2x E5-2660V1 on each node for reference.

Bare metal on Ubuntu 17.04 server.

What's the pros and cons of using one of these:
servethehome/monero_cpu_minergate
servethehome/monero_cpu_moneropool
servethehome/monero_cpu_xmrpooldotnet
There others images?

There's one more 'stable' and with best performance??

No, they each use different pool - server - for connection. You have to choose one and register an account there (you can have an account at each one too). Each pool has it's attributes, like amount of pool fee, payment options, etc...

Because I'm using minergate, but does't look so stable, the hashrate varies frequently

I'm using minexmr.com, but that's not with a docker image. I started at minergate, but went away from them.

Regarding CPU mining, the docker image starts up threads based on cores and L3 cache. If I'm just playing around with it in a VM with 2 vcpus, it wants to start up 20 threads (due to detecting the 10 core 25M L3 cache Xeon CPU I have).

Does this reduce performance (competing for resources) or will it just go as fast as if it correctly identified only 2 cpus? (and 2 threads for example).

For me in azure the results are:

Average H/s with :lastest ->

F4 = 120-150 h/s
F2 = 50-55/s
A4_v2 = 42 h/s
A2_v2 = 22 h/s

Average H/s with :nproc ->

F4 = 160 h/s
F2 = 75 - 85 h/s
A4_v2 = ???
A2_v2 = 36 h/s

I started in the beginning of this thread, is there a minergate nproc image, or do I have to switch to dwarfpool?

It's not a big loss, I have ~3 bucks on minergate just curious.
monero.crypto-pool.fr as for now pays more than Dwarfpool

monero.crypto-pool.fr as for now pays more than Dwarfpool
Total Fee: 2% (Reverse 3% pool dev, 7% to core devs) for the above pool.

Dwarfpool is 1.5% and 0.01 XMR for autopayouts.

How is the .fr pool paying more than dwarfpool.com?

I ran for a few weeks. Dwarfpool was the best over time for me.

In May I've put two same servers on these pools - one on dwarf and one on monero.crypto-pool.fr.
Each with same hashrate 3300H/s. And on monero.crypto-pool.fr pool I've got on 0.02 xmr/day more then on dwarf. I assume this is due to bigger net hashrate on .fr pool (was about 13Mh) vs. dwarf (was about 8Mh)
