Gminer v2.70: Miner (AMD / NVIDIA) [Download & Configure]

gminer Mining software

Gminer Is a popular miner that is in demand in the cryptocurrency community. Its main highlight lies in the support for many algorithms and, accordingly, cryptocurrencies. Thanks to its unique design and stability, in just six months, gminer became the favorite of Equihash algorithms. The program is suitable for video cards from Nvidia and AMD, but most of the algorithms are focused on Nvidia video cards.

  • Here are the most effective algorithms that are very popular: Equihash, Ethash, CuckooCycle, KAWPOW, ProgPoW.
  • GMiner maintains a leading position in the mining of such coins as Beam, Grin, Cortex, Bitcoin Gold.

The development of the miner never stands still because the development team is constantly improving it with frequent updates in order to achieve the highest performance of the algorithms with the lowest power consumption. Therefore, GMiner stands out from its competitors and conquers users.

Miner Features: Gminer

  • The commission is charged continuously, and not at intervals (like most miners), which positively affects the profitability of the user on PPLNS pools
  • Generated DAG check, warning when GPU overclocking is very high for Ethash, Etcash, KAWPOW and ProgPoW algorithms, helps to overclock GPU without errors
  • Checking total CPU resources, warning when GPU overclocking is very high for Ethash, Etcash, KAWPOW and ProgPoW algorithms, helps to overclock GPU without errors
  • DAG caching, if the GPU has enough memory, DAG files are not recalculated when switching to another algorithm when mining Ethash + Zilliqa or Nicehash, which has a positive effect on user profitability
  • Temperature monitoring and stopping the GPU in case of overheating
  • Watchdog timer is a process observing the state of the main systems of the miner, which will restart the miner in case of a crash or freeze
  • Mechanism for restoring a lost pool connection
  • Support for reserve pools, the miner uses reserve pools until the connection with the main pool is restored
  • Support for secure connections, server certificate verification (optional)
  • Outputting informative and readable tabular statistics to the console
  • Displays detailed information for each device (temperature, power consumption, cooler load, memory frequency, processor frequency, energy efficiency)
  • Parallel output of information to the console and to a file on disk
  • Built-in statistics server - remote monitoring of the miner in the browser
  • Memory settings for Nvidia GPUs with GDDR5X and GDDR5 memory

Below is a list of algorithms that are supported by the mining program (miner) Gminer. The program commission is shown for each of the algorithms. This commission usually does not exceed a few percent and is used by the developers of the miner to maintain and improve its work, as well as to add new functions. The commission is taken due to the fact that the program mines a short period of time (usually no more than a minute) every hour to the developer's wallet.

  • eth, ethash - 0.65%
  • etc, etchash - 0.65%
  • kawpow, rvn, ravencoin - 1%
  • cuckatoo32, grin32 - 2%
  • cortex - 5%
  • beamhash - 2%
  • equihash144_5 - 2%

  • cuckaroo29s, swap - 2%
  • cuckarood29v, monerov - 10%
  • bfc - 3%
  • vds - 2%

And here is the recommended amount of video card memory for Gminer to work on different algorithms.

  • Cuckaroo29 - 3.8Gb;
  • Cuckatoo31 - 7.68 Gb;
  • Cuckoo29 - 3.8 Gb;
  • Equihash 96.5 - 0.75 Gb;
  • Equihash 144.5 - 1.75 Gb;

How to start mining: Gminer

Let's show an example of setting up Gminer for mining Ravencoin on the 2Miners pool. The text below is the correct content of the file.

miner.exe --algo kawpow --server rvn.2miners.com:6060 --user YOUR_ADDRESS.RIG_ID --pass x
pause

Here you need to change YOUR_ADDRESS to your wallet address to receive coins. An example address is RHUC17zAVjNqXDtkqwLPRvQ2XgoRZsXeeG. You also need to change RIG_ID, that is, the desired farm name. Here we use no more than 32 Latin characters, numbers, as well as the symbols "-" and "_". For example rig-1.

Ethash

To start Ethash, enter at the command line:
miner --algo ethash --server eth.2miners.com:2020 --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1
--Algo - mining algorithm, in this case ethash
--Server - address and port of the pool, in this case the pool is eth.2miners.com, port is 2020
-User - Ethash wallet and the name of the worker, in this case the wallet is 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5, the worker is worker1

Ethash and Etchash

For the Ethash and Etchash algorithms, there are 2 options for the stratum protocol (proxy and stratum), to explicitly specify the protocol use the "-proto" parameter, for example, to use the Nicehash pool, enter in the command line:
miner --algo ethash --server daggerhashimoto.usa.nicehash.com:3353 --user 3LsTTSsSy17xuoShcMHuRgGBxKn1AHgeVN --proto stratum

If you have a mixed installation, you can only run the miner on CUDA devices:
miner --algo ethash --server eth.2miners.com:2020 --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1 --opencl 0
or on OpenCL devices only:
miner --algo ethash --server eth.2miners.com:2020 --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1 --cuda 0
or on devices of your choice such as GPU0 GPU2 and GPU4:
miner --algo ethash --server eth.2miners.com:2020 --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1 --devices 0 2 4
the list of available GPUs can be seen by invoking the following command:
miner --list_devices

To set the temperature limits for GPU0, GPU2 and GPU4, upon reaching which mining on this device will be suspended until it cools:
miner --algo ethash --server eth.2miners.com:2020 --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1 --devices 0 2 4 --templimit 80 70 65
where 80 is the temperature limit for GPU0, 70 is the temperature limit for GPU2, 65 is the temperature limit for GPU4.

To save the miner's logs to a file for later analysis:
miner --algo ethash --server eth.2miners.com:2020 --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1 --logfile c: \ log.txt
where "c: \ log.txt" is the path to the file with the miner's logs
