CNRig

GitHub release GitHub Release Date GitHub license

CNRig is a high performance CryptoNight CPU miner for Linux. Based on the formidable XMRig, its distinguishing features are automatic updates and compatibility with old distributions.

Table of contents

Features

  • Automatic updates.
  • Binary compatible with many Linux distributions.
  • High performance.
  • Support for backup (failover) mining server.
  • CryptoNight-Lite support for AEON.
  • CryptoNight-Heavy support for SUMO.
  • Smart automatic CPU configuration.
  • Nicehash support
  • It's open source software.

Download

wget -O cnrig https://github.com/cnrig/cnrig/releases/download/v0.1.5-release/cnrig-0.1.5-linux-x86_64
chmod +x cnrig
./cnrig

Usage

Use config.xmrig.com to generate, edit or share configurations.

Options

  -a, --algo=ALGO          cryptonight (default), cryptonight-lite or cryptonight-heavy
  -o, --url=URL            URL of mining server
  -O, --userpass=U:P       username:password pair for mining server
  -u, --user=USERNAME      username for mining server
  -p, --pass=PASSWORD      password for mining server
  -t, --threads=N          number of miner threads
  -v, --av=N               algorithm variation, 0 auto select
  -k, --keepalive          send keepalived for prevent timeout (need pool support)
  -r, --retries=N          number of times to retry before switch to backup server (default: 5)
  -R, --retry-pause=N      time to pause between retries (default: 5)
      --cpu-affinity       set process affinity to CPU core(s), mask 0x3 for cores 0 and 1
      --cpu-priority       set process priority (0 idle, 2 normal to 5 highest)
      --no-huge-pages      disable huge pages support
      --no-color           disable colored output
      --no-auto-update     disable automatic updates
      --variant            algorithm PoW variant
      --donate-level=N     donate level, default 5% (5 minutes in 100 minutes)
      --user-agent         set custom user-agent string for pool
  -B, --background         run the miner in the background
  -c, --config=FILE        load a JSON-format configuration file
  -l, --log-file=FILE      log all output to a file
  -S, --syslog             use system log for output messages
      --max-cpu-usage=N    maximum CPU usage for automatic threads mode (default 75)
      --safe               safe adjust threads and av settings for current CPU
      --nicehash           enable nicehash/xmrig-proxy support
      --print-time=N       print hashrate report every N seconds
      --api-port=N         port for the miner API
      --api-access-token=T access token for API
      --api-worker-id=ID   custom worker-id for API
  -h, --help               display this help and exit
  -V, --version            output version information and exit

Also you can use configuration via config file, default config.json. You can load multiple config files and combine it with command line options.

Algorithm variations

  • --av=1 For CPUs with hardware AES.
  • --av=2 Lower power mode (double hash) of 1.
  • --av=3 Software AES implementation.
  • --av=4 Lower power mode (double hash) of 3.

Compatibility

CNRig is compiled 100% statically and should work on a wide variety of Linux distributions, It has been tested with:

Distro Kernel Compatible
Ubuntu 18.04 4.15 Yes
Ubuntu 10.04 2.6.32 Yes
CentOS 6 2.6.32 Yes
CentOS 5 2.6.18 Yes

Common Issues

Other information

  • No HTTP support, only stratum protocol support.
  • No TLS support.
  • Default donation 5% (5 minutes in 100 minutes) can be reduced to 1% via command line option --donate-level.

CPU mining performance

  • Intel i7-7700 - 307 H/s (4 threads)
  • AMD Ryzen 7 1700X - 560 H/s (8 threads)

Please note performance is highly dependent on system load. The numbers above are obtained on an idle system. Tasks heavily using a processor cache, such as video playback, can greatly degrade hashrate. Optimal number of threads depends on the size of the L3 cache of a processor, 1 thread requires 2 MB of cache.

Maximum performance checklist

  • Idle operating system.
  • Do not exceed optimal thread count.
  • Use modern CPUs with AES-NI instruction set.
  • Try setup optimal cpu affinity.
  • Enable fast memory (Large/Huge pages).
