I can't seem to get the power settings to change anything.

 

I am running a GTX3080 with additional phoenix parameters: -powlim -35 -cclock -200 -mclock +1200 -tt -80

 

logs show:

[96mEth speed: 86.820 MH/s, shares: 59/0/0, time: 0:48
[0mEth: New job #810a28b0 from eth-us-east.flexpool.io:4444; diff: 4000MH
[95mGPU1: 78C 90% 337W
 

From what I understand I should be around 230 watts with these settings so they don't seem like they are reducing my power levels at all.

 

edit: I don't think it's passing any of my command arguments through as I also added -tt -100 to set fan to run 100% and it doesn't do that either but seems to run based on temp curve.

 

Really hope someone will step in and help me with this!  Please

Same issue here, makes this completely unusable...

The overclocking won't work in this container. Since the only way to overclock nvidia gpu in linux is using nvidia-settings which requires X server running. Which is not the case in this docker. And it's not trivial thing to setup (at least for me :D)

 

You may try following this guide:

Got this to install no problem but getting 0.000 MH/s on the output log. Running a Reference 6800 on 20.45. 

 

Here's the log; any thoughts?

Trying this now, but it hasn't worked the first couple 'o times I did it: same  thread not responding error. I am trying a few variations on driver version to see if that helps.

 

One thing to note: I did see that, even if I don't change the driver version, it reinstalls the driver every time I run it. Is that a useful thing to note?

Richard - were you ever able to get your 6800 to work? I believe I'm having the same issue as you.

That would be because you're using a 4GB card. Phoenix Miner only mines ETH and the size of the DAG can't fit, so you get abysmal hashrates. 

 

My advice in this instance, download and setup a VM with either Nicehash OS, Hive OS or Simpleminer OS and assign the card to mine Ravencoin so you can still get a tiny bit.

I have a 6800XT and having the same issue. 

i suspect its an issue with the driver or phoenixminer. 

what ive noticed is 1 cpu thread gets stuck at 100%, 

followed by this in the logfile

[93mGPU1 not responding
[91mThread(s) not responding. Restarting.

 

mining a nvidia 1060 using t-rex works fine

im wondering if Phoenix Miner 5.7b fixes the issue, given that the container is running 5.6d, and the change notes for 5.7b mention:

 

-Implemented full hardware control for AMD RX6900/6800/6700 cards under Linux. Note that with these cards under Linux you need to specify relative core voltage: e.g. -cclock -50 will set the core voltage to be 50 mV under the default value

-Fixed an issue causing crashing with some RX6900/6800/6700 cards under Linux (there is no need to run these cards with -clkernel 0 anymore)

Not sure if this is still checked, but I was able to get the following to work:
AMD RX580 8GB

20.50 drivers (using AMD Driver Version entry on container settings)

Hello! I have an old r9 290 that I figured I would use for mining in my unraid rig. I have tried using the container, but I keep getting "No available GPUs for mining. Please check your drivers and/or hardware." I tried reading this whole thread and for a couple of days I've been at it, the closest I've gotten to running was following pronto's thread, I got the same results as him. Could you help me out with this?

 

PS: You have a typo in the error message available is written as avaiable :P

i can only speak for amd drivers, yes, everytime.

Hey everyone, sorry for my long absence. Have a lot of things going on and not enough free time. If I've missed any important posts please feel free to reply to this again and I'll revisit. 

 

I don't currently use this container due to lower profitability since I moved house and my energy price has gone up; and while I've still been maintaining it to the best of my ability, updates will be slow unless I find a way to automate them with new releases from the PhoenixMiner devs. (That's the excuse I'm going with in my head, I really just haven't had enough time to connect my rig back to my server and I'll probably end up selling most of my cards to pay bills anyway 😂)

 

In addition to that, AMD released version 21.40.1 of their drivers in an entirely different format (that they should have been using from the start) so it's going to take a chunk of time to get that working, which is time I don't have right now unfortunately. This container works with most versions between 18.20 and 21.30 at the moment (and semi-secretly has for a few months). When I get a spare few hours I'll see if I can get it going again. I also need to update OP and the readme on Docker Hub. For now the best source of accurate info is the Github readme.

I have both 6800 and 6600xt installed in the system. The container only mines with 6800. How can I tell the container to use the 6600xt as well?

Back on the 14th of Sept with @sonic6's help I was able to confirm that version 5.7b and earlier of the PhoenixMiner binary weren't compatible with this card. I've since updated it to 5.9d now that it's available and it may (probably) work now, I haven't got a 6600xt available to test it with.

By memory we determined that this card wasn't compatible, and with the direction the container ended up taking it's less likely to be compatible now than it was when @pronto was trying. Basically when hardware crosses that line where it basically becomes 'vintage', chances of getting it working with things like this container that rely on cutting edge software compatibility are slim. I did my best to get it working but even with a really old Ubuntu base image that supported compatible drivers it just wasn't working. 

I've always thought that message looked a bit strange haha. It's coded into the binary though which I can't change, I can filter the output but it's better if the PhoenixMiner developers just fix it.

Something is either misconfigured or malfunctioning, the AMD drivers should only be installed when the container is first run after being created / recreated (eg. after an update, or manually). Like I mentioned above, at present I don't use this container but I've just tested the functionality and it works on my server whereby if the drivers are already installed they don't get reinstalled unless the container is recreated. Please make sure you're up to date (I updated it the other day and it should show PhoenixMiner 5.9d in the logs) and have enough free space available for docker / aren't running a prune on cron/schedule.

I wish it was possible to have the AMD drivers work like the Nvidia ones, it would have saved me a lot of work 😅. It's not actually so much a 'people don't use them for that enough so it hasn't been done yet' issue, but an issue where AMD just designed their drivers with blinkers on and have gradually been playing catchup. So unfortunately it's just the way they designed it, the Nvidia drivers are just a more suitable design for purposes such as docker.

 

 

EDIT: Just introduced support for AMD drivers version 21.40.1, anyone who uses this container with AMD GPUs should take note of the driver version they are currently using and then try updating to this version of the drivers. If it works, stick to 21.40.1 as it's the most widely compatible and up to date version. If it doesn't, go back to the version you were on.
