    Ok, it was my mistake.. the affinity needed to be inside "" marks.

    Now its running perfectly, after i affined the idle cores for Cast XMR, i now get 600-612h/s on both CPUs. Flawless victory!

    Nice! Yeah, memory optimization is everything for Cryptonight based calcs. NUMA specifically addresses that. Same reason 5 year old HD79XX series GPU's still are viable: it's not about the actual GPU speed...it's about the memory optimizations.

    Does running the docker-mining-image inside a esxi VM (ubuntu) provides "impossible" results?
    I mean, is this something well known?
    Because I'm getting 674.5 H/s from a 4-Core VM on a IBM M4 host with 1xE5-2670V2, which looks very high/impossible, based on the numbers in the first post..

    EDIT

    getting similar performance also on bare metal (E3 1220V2)

    Code:
    dp@titan:~$ docker logs elegant_brown | tail -n 30

    Or I'm looking at the wrong numbers? :oops:

    I found another Socket 2011 MB laying around.
    I'm now indecise if put in 2x E5-2670V2 or 2xE5-2687W

    That would be

    Sandy Bridge 16c/32 thread 3.10-3.80GHz - 300W TDP
    vs
    Ivy Bridge 20c/40 thread 2.50-3.10Ghz - 230W TDP

    Does AEON scale better with cores or frequency?

    You are mining cryptonight-lite, its about 3.5x higher hashrate than the cryptonight algo. So just divide your hash rates by 3.5 and it will be approximately comparative to the results posted in this thread.

    Both? :) Actually, the amount of L3 cache available on each CPU. A quick looks shows the 2670V2 has 25MB vs 20MB on the 2687. 2670 should be able to run 5 more full power aeon threads.

    but AEON seems to also benefit from the IPC gains on new archs so the differences could be a wash?

    So, any news about this Intel vulnerability... will the patches affect MY HASHRATES?

    For CPU hashing - yes. I did a quick test today and Saw about a 15% reduction in hash rates. Not going to upgrade my kernels anytime soon ( the machines are not exposed to the Net and I have my wallet on a different machine so little risk there)

    What kernel version got upgraded? I’ll be sure to avoid that

    It will be in the upcoming 4.15 release and I believe most of the distros will back port it.

    I tested on Fedora with the patch backported to 4.14.

    15% reduction, that is a lot... i'm running windows, probably need to find a way to block auto updating completely.

    From what I understood so far how the patch works 15% performance drop seems pretty high. I would not have expected that for this kind of application :(

    Say hello, to new botnet. + almost 80Mh to monero nethash just in past few hours (I guess they are from botnets on js webminers)
    Monero becomes abotnet coin.

    I suspect this will be a temporary problem until the devs can optimize for the patch. Sucks nonetheless.

    Wow... Network is at 630MH/s today. IIRC just 2 weeks ago it was at 500MH/s. At this rate it'll be at 1GH/s by Spring if not earlier...

    it will be even bigger if developers don't take action to stop botnets.
    Roughly 300Mh sitting on private pools (mainly they are botnets based on coinhive javascript web miner software)

    Devs probably don't care. After all, they're earning .1% of the botnets income. Unless you're talking about the devs of Monero itself.
