Tested by InBlue:

(Inblue launched multiple biblepayd daemons with different -datadir switches) and then: I accessed the second CLI like this:

./biblepay-cli -datadir=/home/inblue/.biblepaycore2

getmininginfo

(I put the listen=0 in the conf file)

RESULTS

All values are taken after about half an hour of mining. Type of computer: 10-CPU Xeon Skylake.

Note: that for the pool to register more than one instance, every instance has to be a different worker.

Running 1 biblepayd at genproclimit 20:
HPS: 52k
HPS2: 29k


Running 2 biblepayd at genproclimit 10 each:
HPS: 29k + 28k = 57k
HPS2: 30k + 30k = 60k


Running 4 biblepayd at genproclimit 5 each:
HPS: 15k + 14.5k + 14.5k + 14.5k = 58.5k
HPS2: 19k + 22k + 19k + 20k = 80k


Running 10 biblepayd at genproclimit 2 each:
HPS: 6k x 10 = 60k
HPS2: 12k x 10 = 120k


So the conclusion is obvious - the HPS is about the same regardless of the number of daemons, but HPS2 rises considerably.

The next test I did was running 10 daemons on 10 separate 1-CPU machines (the CPU is the same as in the 10-CPU machine) and also genproclimit 2 as before.

This scenario gives:

  • HPS: 10k x 10 = 100k
  • HPS2: 17k x 10 = 170k

So this is even more than if you run 10 daemons on the same machine, which is 60k HPS and 120k HPS2, as noted above.


Summary

Solo mining
One 10-CPU machine with 1 miner gives 52k HPS.
One 10-CPU machine with 10 miners gives 60k HPS.
Ten 1-CPU machines with 1 miner each give 100k HPS.
Pool mining
One 10-CPU machine with 1 miner gives 29k HPS2.
One 10-CPU machine with 10 miners gives 120k HPS2.
Ten 1-CPU machines with 1 miner each give 170k HPS2.
