-a, --address Nimiq wallet address [string] [required] -n, --name Device name [string] -s, --server Pool server address multiple addresses or a single string Example: -s=nimiq.icemining.ca eu.nimpool.io Default: eu.nimpool.io [array] -p, --port Pool(s) server port Default: 8444 [array] -m, --mode Mining mode Can be dumb or nano(dumb is similar to stratum) Default: nano [string] -d, --devices Active GPUs Example: -d=0 1 3 Default: All available GPUs [array] -t, --threads Number of threads per GPU Example: -t=2 or -t=2 2 4 Default: 1 [array] -b, --batchsize batchsize per thread. Example: -b=100 or -b=100 120 200 Default: auto based on available device memory [array] -i, --api Enable/Disable API Default: false [boolean] -o, --apiport API port Default: 3000 [number] --opt, --optimizer Enable/Disable parameters optimizer Miner will still run the optimizer if it can't find gpu.json file. Default: false [boolean] --diff, --difficulty Start difficulty Default: Disabled [number] -u, --usebin Save and load kernel binaries Default: True [boolean] -h, --help Show help [boolean] -v, --version Show version number [boolean]
In addition to the above command line options, there is a miner.conf file which has the exact same options. If you uncomment any config option, it will be used as the default value for that option in the next run. Config options can still be overridden by command line options.
If you are using Windows, the minimum virtual memory must be set to the total amount of allocated gpu memory. So if you have 6 x 1080 tis and want to use 8GB on each card, you will need 48 GB of virtual memory. This only applies to Windows.
If you are running the noncerpro.exe file directly, make sure you have set UV_THREADPOOL_SIZE to atleast 32;
Download the binary packge for Windows/Linux, edit mine.bat/mine.sh file and insert your own wallet address and run it.
You can control the amount of memory allocation per thread by using --batchsize option. Here is how it works:
Allocated memory per thread = batchsize * 100 * 512 KB. For example batchsize 81 will try to allocate about 4 GB of memory.
Notice that this allocation is per thread, so if you have more than one thread you must adjust the batchsize accordingly.
From version 2.0.0, efficient multiple threads on a single device is supported via --threads option. Usually the best performance is with --threads=2. Sample for rx 580 on linux:
--threads=2 --batchsize=80 core state:p3, core clock:1090, mem clock 2200, amdmemtweak: --ref=30(Linux) 242 kh/s
Argon2d is highly dependent on memory bandwidth and memory clock. Try settings the memory clock as high as possible. Other parameters must be adjusted based on the specific card and OS.
This miner has a fixed 2% dev fee. That means 2 minutes in every 100 minutes, miner will run with the donation wallet address.
V1.0.1 and prior versions had 1% fee.
