Something seems to be wrong here:
PC1 (Workstation): 1x Xeon Quadcore 3 Ghz, Win 7 -> 74-106 PPS
PC2 (Server): 2x Xeon Quadcore 2,4 Ghz, Ubuntu -> 1-15 PPS
PC3 (Server): 2x Xeon Quadcore 2,4 Ghz, Ubuntu -> 1-15 PPS
PC4:(Notebook) 1x i5 Mobile Dualcore 2,5 Ghz, Win 7 -> 3-14 PPS
While I can imagine that PC4 is simply that slow, PC2&3 should be much faster then PC1. CPU is at 100% and Primecoin the only thing running.
Does anyone have an idea what´s wrong here?
- What does primespersec mean? Does this number judge how fast you will mine coins?
Basically, yes. You have to have luck to find a block. But your chances are higher when this value is higher.
- When I mine coins like this, do they just show up where it says balance?
- If CPU usage is at 100% is there any danger in just leaving my computer on all the time, like overheating?
You should ofcourse check your CPU temp. But normally this shouldn't be a problem. If your cooler is adequate, everything is fine.
Set up PC5 (Server) with 2x Xeon X5355 2,67Ghz (Quadcore) and Win 2k8R2. Same problem here only 1-40 PPS. Way to low for 8 physical (16 virtual) cores. Wondering what could be the problem?
