  • cool looks like ive got it all covered except the credentials. its the user and pw for what? not sure.

    also i get a lot of these:

    zac123: got no confirmation from pool! It is probably to busy, please set your submissionMaxRetry a bit higher if you see this (3m 2d 09:48:23)

    but i have it set to 10 at the mo. and from looking online this isnt anything to worry about

    so the wallet bit is just like this right?

    "wallet" : "https://wallet.burst.cryptoguru.org/"



  • I use my local wallet.
    But remember the port at the end :8125



  • i'm much happier since using creep miner on 0-100.burst-team.us

    must better results i feel.

    however i haven't been able to stop creepminer from crashing every now and then.

    i woke up this morning and checked it but the miner was not open on the desk top. from looking at the log files it looks like the last thing it did was at 10:30 last night. so its been off all night - no mining!

    i'm sure its just a setting thats not right. i already have an exception in windows defender. anything else you can think of?

    thanks
    zac



  • I run all my miners on Ubuntu for this reason.
    Lots of MS crap to mess up the miner is no good.
    On Ubuntu I almost never have the miner go down.



  • Also dont use the Beta Creep miner 1.8.*
    Use the 1.7.*


  • admin

    @zac123 Don't know why it died, but set it up with a looping batch file so if it dies, it'll restart:

    Creep.bat:
    :loop
    creepminer
    goto loop

    H.



  • I don't usually have any miner down and I almost only use windows, but surely I agree that killing all the things that shut you down on Windows is not straightforward for the most... I must say I never had any miner exiting without an error on Windows so what I usually do is just a bat with the EXE and a pause in the end so it catches the error for me.
    So when I do changes or something I catch the issues and usually if I kept solving them, at some point, I have a pretty stable system... That's how usually goes for me with Burst Software... On Linux is a bit more reliable on the code you are running, instead of the code that its "running for you"...

    @moverspool I totally get where you come from but I believe someone that knows how to manage Linux nowadays, knows how to keep any Windows version to rebooting so the @haitch bat should be enough for most Windows users to keep it working...

    ok thanks everyone for your help.

    it crashed this morning so i looked through the event log and found this at the same time of the crash:

    Faulting application name: creepMiner.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5b3f72f4

    i think the .bat idea is good. i'll do some research today and see if i can put one together.



  • ok so i'm trying to put together a .bat file as suggested. this is what i have so far:

    tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq creepMiner.EXE" /FO CSV > C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\search.log
    
    FINDSTR creepMiner.EXE C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\search.log > C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\found.log
    
    FOR /F %%A IN (C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\found.log) DO IF %%~zA EQU 0 GOTO end
    
    start C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\creepMiner.EXE
    
    :end
    
    del C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\search.log
    del C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\found.log
    

    i then run a scheduled task every five mins.

    problem is it seems to open up a new instance every time it runs regardless of whether the miner window is open or not

    creep.bat:

    @echo off
    :loop
    C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\creepMiner.EXE
    goto loop

    goto loop

    ok thanks. that looks a little simpler than mine. so i should schedule a task to run this? or just use this to start the miner?

    again tho, this just seems to ignore the fact that the miner is running and it opens up a new instance



  • @zac123 just use this to start the miner

    @zac123 just use this to start the miner

    ok done, lets do some burstin!! 🙂


  • admin

    @zac123 Just use it to launch the miner - if the miner dies for some reason it'll loop around and restart it.
