MultiMiner uses a set of command-line miners on the backend in order to provide both hardware scanning and the the mining implementation.
These backend miners are automatically downloaded and kept up-to-date by MultiMiner.
BFGMiner is the primary backend miner for MultiMiner. When you run MultiMiner for the first time, BFGMiner will automatically be installed.
BFGMiner provides the hardware scanning feature found in MultiMiner, discovering available devices for mining including ASICs, FPGAs, GPUs, and CPUs.
BFGMiner is also the sole SHA-256 backend miner and provides the mining implementation for all SHA-2 ASICs, GPU and CPU mining.
Finally, BFGMiner is also the default Scrypt backend miner.
A variety of backend GPU miners are supported out-of-the-box by MultiMiner, including:
Additionally, the user can add any additional miner backend by simply copying it to a new folder under the
MultiMiner\Miners directory. Afterward the miner will be available in the GPU Miner Settings dialog.
Note that only forks of CGMiner, BFGMiner, and SGMiner are supported as the miner must support their standard RPC API for communications.
