- Using the same algo as user for devfee mining, so there is no difference in algo settings, power usage, etc..



Extra:
- Watchdog that monitors your GPU threads, if they stop hashing for a few minutes, miner restarts itself
- Hash monitor, if 5 minute average hash falls under the value you define, miner restarts itself
- Startup monitor, if miner can't init GPU's and start mining in a defined time, restarts itself or runs a user defined script
- Set system shutdown temperature, to protect your GPU's from overheating
- Restart (disable/enable) Vega gpu's before mining for maximum performance
- API for rig monitoring
- Set compute mode and disable crossfire on all cards
- Benchmark every algo locally without connecting to a pool

CONFIG.TXT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


You can use these options :
Note: use all lowercase characters

"cryptonight_type" : "normalv8, normalv7, normal, lite, litev7, heavy, bittubev2, artocash, alloy, marketcash, b2n, stellitev4, haven, fast, italo, mox, dark, festival"
"intensity" : 0-800, if set to 0 miner will try to find best settings for every video card
"worksize" : 1-256, if set, every video card will use this worksize, if not set, using auto detected value
"fragments" : 0,1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128 or 9999. It can boost your hashrate if you find the right value for your GPU.
"heavy_mode" : 1,2 or 3. Method for doing calculations on heavy algos (Heavy, Haven, FreeHaven, Italo, BitTube). Default is 1. 3 is experimental and the fastest, but most unstable.
"double_threads" : true or false, set it to true for best performance
"giveup_limit" : number, how many times to try connecting to a pool before switching to next pool from pools.txt
"timeout" : number - seconds, when is a connection to a pool treated as time out
"retry_time" : number - seconds, how much to wait before trying to reconnect to a pool
"reboot_script_gpu_watchdog" : filename to a batch file in miner directory, if set it turns off built in miner reset procedure on gpu failure, and instead runs this script
"reboot_script_min_rig_speed" : filename to a batch file in miner directory, if set it turns off built in miner reset procedure on min_rig_speed trigger, and instead runs this script
"main_pool_reconnect" : number - seconds (minimum is 3 minutes or 180 sec), how often to try to reconnect back to the main pool. Default is 10 minutes.
"min_rig_speed" : number - in H/S, it defines the minimum rig hashing speed we want to maintain. If 5 minute average hashing speed is less than this, miner restarts.
"min_rig_speed_duration" : number - in seconds (minimum is 30 sec), defines the time period for average hashing speed calculation, used with 'min_rig_speed' parameter
"target_temperature" : number between 0-99, miner will try to maintain this temperature on all found video cards (ADL must be enabled, works only on cards supporting OverdriveN)
"shutdown_temperature" : number between 0-100, if this temperature is reached, miner will shutdown system (ADL must be enabled)



=================================
Manual GPU setup (advanced)
=================================

To manually set up video cards, you must create a "gpu_conf" array in the config.txt file.

Example :

Code:
"gpu_conf" :
[
{ "id" : 0, "intensity" : 0 , "worksize" : 16, "threads" : 2},
{ "id" : 1, "intensity" : 0 , "worksize" : 16, "threads" : 2},
{ "id" : 2, "intensity" : 60, "worksize" : 8 , "threads" : 2},
{ "id" : 3, "intensity" : 55, "worksize" : 8 , "threads" : 2}
]


Additional parameters:

"fragments" : 0,1,2,4,8,16,32,64 or 128. It can boost your hashrate if you find the right value for your GPU
"heavy_mode" : 1,2 or 3. Method for doing calculations on heavy algos (Heavy, Haven, FreeHaven, Italo, BitTube). Default is 1.
"target_temperature" : 0-99, if set miner will try to maintain this temperature for this particular video card. If option 'target_temperature' on top of config.txt is set, this option WILL BE IGNORED. (ADL must be enabled, works only on cards supporting OverdriveN)
"target_fan_speed" : 0-6000, if set miner will try to set the video card fan speed to this speed. Setting is in RPM (rounds per minute) (ADL must be enabled)
"adl_type" : 1 or 2 , 1 - USE OVERDRIVEN , 2 - USE OVERDRIVE 5. Default is 1 if not set. Option 2 (Overdrive 5) is suitable for older cards
"persistent_memory" : true or false, if set miner will try to allocate extra memory for the video card, if it is available. CAUTION, MINER CAN BECOME UNSTABLE AND CRASH if using this option




--------------------------------------------------------------------------
POOLS.TXT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Example:

{
"pools" :
[
   {"pool" : "pool_1_address", "wallet" : "pool_1_wallet", "password" : "x"},
   {"pool" : "pool_2_address", "wallet" : "pool_2_wallet", "password" : "x"},
   {"pool" : "pool_3_address", "wallet" : "pool_3_wallet", "password" : "x"}
]
}

Pool on first position is the MAIN pool, others are counted as FAILOVER pools.

Additional parameters:

"worker" : worker name, not every pool supports this
"nicehash" : true or false, set this to true if you are using Nicehash
"keepalive" : true or false, not every pool supports this
"pool_use_tls": true or false, if true miner will use SSL/TLS to connect to pool
"job_timeout" : number in seconds, if no job is received for this period, miner will reconnect to the pool (Default is 20 minutes)
"max_difficulty" : number, if pool difficulty is above this value miner will reconnect to the pool
"cryptonight_type" : if defined, and --usealgoswitching is used, it indicates the algo for the pool.


A short explanation of "cryptonight_type" and how to use it :

{
"pools" :
[
   {"pool" : "pool_1_address", "wallet" : "pool_1_wallet", "password" : "x", "cryptonight_type" : "haven"},
   {"pool" : "pool_2_address", "wallet" : "pool_2_wallet", "password" : "x", "cryptonight_type" : "normalv8"},
   {"pool" : "pool_3_address", "wallet" : "pool_3_wallet", "password" : "x", "cryptonight_type" : "heavy"},
   {"pool" : "pool_4_address", "wallet" : "pool_4_wallet", "password" : "x", "cryptonight_type" : "fast"}
]
}

Set the algo used on the pool with the "cryptonight_type" parameter.
Set the --usealgoswitching parameter in start.bat

If needed, miner will re-init with the pool algo before switching to the pool.
For example if you are mining on pool_1 using haven algo, and you manually switch to the next pool, miner will re-init with normalv8 algo before connecting to pool_2.
Also if there are connection errors to pool_1, and miner automatically switches to the next pool, if the algos of pools aren't the same, miner will re-init with the defined cryptonight_type for pool_2.

IMPORTANT: Do not set 'cryptonight_type' parameter for pools if you are using a proxy for coin switching, or a pool with algo switching capabilities! (example Monero Ocean)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
START.BAT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are some options that must be set in start.bat, and not within config.txt or pools.txt.
For example if you want to create configurations for multiple coins, you must define a 'start.bat' like file for every coin.

Parameters:

--config filename (use config file other than config.txt)
--pools filename (use pools file other than pools.txt)
--logfile filename (enable logging to file)
--listdevices (list available devices)
--listdevicesreordered (list available devices ordered by busid)
--gpureorder (order devices by busid)
--adldisable (disable ADL)
--disablegpuwatchdog (disable gpu crash detection watchdog)
--resetfans (reset fans back to default settings on miner exit)
--enableduplicategpuid (enables the usage of the same gpu id in gpu_conf multiple times)
--sendallstales (send every stale share - may increase number of rejected shares)
--setcomputemode (sets AMD gpu's to compute mode & disables crossfire - run as admin)
--runbenchmark (benchmark your current algo settings offline)
--benchmarkduration (how long to run the benchmark in seconds, max is 3 minutes, def. is 1 min.)
--benchmarkalgos (benchmark all algos set in algos.txt and save results)
--resetvega (disable/enable Vega video cards before mining)
--startupscript filename (run custom batch script before mining)
--usealgoswitching (use miner in algo switching mode - pool must support it)
--usealgomapping value (type of algo mappings to use with algo switching: 1-short, 2-long, def. is short)
--algoswitchmintime value (minimum time to mine using same algo, in seconds, min is 3 minutes, def. is 10 min. - pool must support it)
--resetmineronalgoswitch (if used miner will restart on every algo switch)
--apienable (enable statistics API)
--apiport value (port where statistics API is reachable - default 21555)
--apirigname value (identifier name for your rig in statistics API)
--forcedshutdown (never try to free resources on restart/shutdown)
--gpuerrorsalert (notify when number of compute errors for any GPU reaches this value)
--maxstartuptime value(max time to init gpu's and start mining, min 10 sec, max 10 min, def. 2 min)
--maxstartuptimescript filename(run this script if maxstartuptime is exceeded)
--disablestartupmonitor (disable watchdog for miner startup interval)
--gpuwatchdogdisablemode (if enabled, watchdog will try to disable crashed gpu, instead of restarting miner)

When setting any of these parameters, DON'T use " or ' around the value!


To setup your video cards in cmd line :

These settings override the settings in config.txt
If you want to set everything in cmd line, you still need to have an empty config.txt file (which contains just : {}, or any other parameter like api etc etc )
First list devices (--listdevices or --listdevicesreordered if you are going to use --gpureorder), then you know the GPU id's and can set them up easy.

Parameters:

--ccryptonighttype value (algo to use)
--cgpuid value (gpu id, comma separated values, use --listdevices to see available)
--cgpuintensity value (gpu intensity, comma separated values)
--cgputhreads value (number of gpu threads, comma separated values)
--cgpuworksize value (gpu worksize, comma separated values)
--cgpufragments value(can be 0,1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128, comma separated values)
--cgpuheavymode value (mode for heavy algos (1, 2, 3), comma separated values)
--cgputargettemperature value (gpu temperature, comma separated values)
--cgputargetfanspeed value (gpu fan speed in RPM, comma separated values)
--cgpuadltype value (gpu adl to use (1 or 2), comma separated values)



To setup your main pool in cmd line :

If set here, this will be the MAIN pool, you can also add more pools in pools.txt config file.

Parameters:

--cworker value (worker name or rig id - pool must support it)
--cpool url:port (pool address:port without stratum prefix)
--cwallet address (user wallet address)
--cpassword value (pool password)
--ctls value (use SSL/TLS, true or false)
--cnicehash value (force nicehash, true or false)
--cjobtimeout value (number in seconds, if no job is received for this period, miner will reconnect to the pool)
--cmaxdifficulty value (number, if pool difficulty is above this value miner will reconnect to the pool)
--ckeepalive value (true or false, not every pool supports this)


Examples:

Use 1 GPU with id 0 , intensity 120, 2 threads on algo cryptonight v7 on nanopool:

SRBMiner-CN.exe --ccryptonighttype normalv8 --cgpuid 0 --cgpuintensity 120 --cgputhreads 2 --cpool xmr-eu1.nanopool.org:14444 --cwallet 4A5hJyu2FvuM2azexYssHW2odrNCNWVqLLmzCowrA57xGJLNufXfzVgcMpAy3YWpzZSAPALhVH4Ed7x o6RZYyw2bUtbm12g.donation


Use 5 GPUS with id 0,1,2,3,4 , intensities 56,56,55,58,55, 2 threads for each GPU, on algo cryptonight v8 on nanopool:

SRBMiner-CN.exe --ccryptonighttype normalv8 --cgpuid 0,1,2,3,4 --cgpuintensity 56,56,55,58,55 --cgputhreads 2,2,2,2,2 --cpool xmr-eu1.nanopool.org:14444 --cwallet 4A5hJyu2FvuM2azexYssHW2odrNCNWVqLLmzCowrA57xGJLNufXfzVgcMpAy3YWpzZSAPALhVH4Ed7x o6RZYyw2bUtbm12g.donation



--------------------------------------------------------------------------
ALGO SWITCHING MODE
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are 2 types of algo switching supported :

Proxy or pool controlled

This means the mining pool or proxy (software between your miner and the pool) decides what algo should be mined.
For example Monero Ocean pools support auto algo switching based on profitability. You can read everything about it on their FAQ page.

You can also use software which allows you to change the mining algorithm with a simple mouse click. One example is Hesido's Cryptonote Proxy tool.


Manually controlled

In this mode the user sets the algorithm (cryptonight_type) for every pool he has in pools.txt.
When manually changing pools (by pressing 'o' or 'p'), miner will automatically re-init with the algo he set in pools.txt for that particular pool.
This also means you can set failover pools using any of the supported algorithms.


To use the algo switching mode (--usealgoswitching parameter in .bat) with pool controlled method the pool must support the XMRig Proxy Stratum protocol extensions(https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig-proxy/blob/master/doc/STRATUM_EXT.md)


Steps that are common for both switching types:

1.] You can edit the file 'algos.txt', which contains entries for every algo you want the pool to send you jobs for (if using pool controlled switching).
If you are using the manually controlled algo switching, setting up this file is important because of the various configurations that every algo has.
The 'hashrate' parameter in this case isn't used.

You need to edit the 'hashrate' value if using pool controlled switching, and 'startup_script' if you are going to use it. (you can read what it is for under this text)
Also if you want, you can fully customize configs for every algo. You can find them in the 'Config' folder.


Short explanation of parameters in algos.txt:

+ "config" expects a filename to a config file where you set up everything for a specific algo (config-normalv8.txt is for CNV8 as you can guess).
So on every new algo switch SRBMiner will initialize settings specific for that algo.

+ "hashrate" is a parameter where you should write the total hashrate of your rig (in H/S) for that specific algo (you can easily find it out by running a benchmark for example).
This field is used by the pool in calculating what is the most profitable algo for you to mine.

+ "startup_script" can be used to run a script (batch file) before miner starts.
You can for example set clocks, voltages, etc. specific to that algo

You can easily benchmark the hashrates by running benchmark-algos.bat or by typing this into a command prompt:

Code:
SRBMiner-CN.exe --benchmarkalgos

This process will take a few minutes, and when finished it will create a file benchmark_results.txt with the hashrate for every algo you benchmarked.
Now you need to take and copy-paste those values into algos.txt under the right algorithm section.
The benchmarking procedure should be used only if using pool controlled algo switching.


2.] There is a 'pools-algoswitch.txt' file where i predefined a few pools on Monero Ocean (algo switching pool), where i put my donation address as an example wallet,
so you should change this wallett address to your own.

If you are using the manually controlled pool switching, then you would define your own pools here.
You just need to add one new parameter (cryptonight_type) to each pool entry.

Here is an example how 'pools-algoswitch.txt' could look like:

{
"pools" :
[
{"pool" : "pool_1_address", "wallet" : "pool_1_wallet", "password" : "x", "cryptonight_type" : "haven"},
{"pool" : "pool_2_address", "wallet" : "pool_2_wallet", "password" : "x", "cryptonight_type" : "normalv8"},
{"pool" : "pool_3_address", "wallet" : "pool_3_wallet", "password" : "x", "cryptonight_type" : "heavy"},
{"pool" : "pool_4_address", "wallet" : "pool_4_wallet", "password" : "x", "cryptonight_type" : "fast"}
]
}

Now that you have algos.txt and pools-algoswitch.txt set up, start the miner by running start-algo-switching.bat

If you are using the pool controlled algo switching, DON'T set cryptonight_type for that pool, because you could get into an endless loop of algo switching Smiley

TIPS:

There are two algo switching modes available : with or without miner restart.

The 'miner restart' mode is recommended for Vega video cards, because they tend to drop mining speed on algo switching sometimes.
Using the 'miner restart mode' with the --resetvega parameter you are ensuring always maximum mining speeds.

Example:

Code:
SRBMiner-CN.exe --config Config\config-normalv8.txt --pools pools-algoswitch.txt --usealgoswitching --resetmineronalgoswitch --resetvega


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


- Press 's' to see some basic stats
- Press 'h' to see hashing speed
- Press 'r' to reload pools
- Press 'p' to switch to the next pool
- Press 'o' to switch to the previous pool
- Press number from 0-9 to disable/enable from gpu0-gpu9, then shift+0 for gpu10, shift+1 for gpu11..etc. until gpu19 max (use US keyboard where SHIFT+1 = !, SHIFT+2 = @ ..etc..)



--------------------------------------------------------------------------
INFORMATION
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have to change the wallet address in sample config.txt file to your own, or you will donate some hashing power to me. (Thanks)

Tips:

) DON'T use your V7 settings for V8 algo, because the optimal worksize for V8 is 16 or 32.

) Here is a table maintained and edited by users with their settings for various cards : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pH326fwnYWC5Jef2FdF4KnJ4CLj0cwDDtGjrlgekk1A/edit#gid=514064850

) Guide to reaching 2k+ H/s with Vega64 on V8 algo : HERE [thanks GKumaran]

) Here's a nice little tip on how to increase your hashrate even more :
Example for Vega56 doing normalv7 algo :

1.Put --enableduplicategpuid in start.bat at the end of line ( SRBMiner-CN.exe --config config-normalv7.txt --pools pools-normalv7.txt  --sendallstales --enableduplicategpuid )
2.Set gpu in config-normalv7.txt :

Code:
{
"cryptonight_type" : "normalv7",
"intensity" : 0,
"double_threads" : true,
"gpu_conf" :
[
{
 "id" : 0,
 "intensity" : 122,
 "worksize" : 8,
 "threads" : 1
},
{
 "id" : 0,
 "intensity" : 124,
 "worksize" : 8,
 "threads" : 1
}
]
}


What was done here?  When using 2 threads , the best value for intensity is 123. By enabling the usage of duplicate gpu id, you make 2 separate threads for 1 gpu, but one has value 123-1, the other 123+1.
This method can be used on any GPU, you just need to experiment with the intensities.

) Some users report higher hash-rates with RX580 8GB on CN-Heavy algorithm when running GPU-Z in the background. Mileage may vary.

) If you want to use Claymore's Manager with SRBMiner, there is a tool for this made by RuMiner, check it out HERE

) If you want a dashboard with informations within your browser, user vitalyoff made a nice one in html+js. You can check it out HERE

) Another great dashboard with informations within your browser, with a tutorial how to set it up is HERE

) If you have the same cards, it doesn't mean that they all can handle the same intensity. Try setting every card separately in "gpu_conf". Experiment and find the best setting. Some cards even work better without the double_threads option turned on!

) If you get a "Error CL_MEM_OBJECT_ALLOCATION_FAILURE when calling clEnqueueNDRangeKernel" error, increase virtual memory.

) If you get something like "Warning: threadx hashing speed is 0 (x)", that probably means you need to lower your intensity. Auto intensity is not magical always, sorry.

) If you have hashrate fluctuations on some algo, try increasing your swap file even more (example 12x560 4g rig needs 90gb swap on heavy)

Good Job Mate! Low dev fee, even greater job! 😂

I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself.

Let me quote this for you from the first post :

POW V7 ready (means new Monero algo will work)


Cryptonight: Monero, Electroneum, Sumokoin, Karbowanec, Bytecoin, Turtlecoin, Dero and others.
Cryptonight Lite: Aeon

Supports Nicehash & SSL/TLS encrypted connections

you need to fix graft or add option to choose cryptonight / cryptonight v7 manually...graft gets false detected as v7(on castxmr /xmr stak too)

Hey. There is an error. I tried to run 6 cards RX550 2Gb. With intensity 12 all cards are launched. But the result is noticeably lower than on GG. At an intensity of 13, only 5 cards are mined. The result is close to GG. 6th can not mine. Launched in 2 threads. On gg I get 495-500 h / s

On gg I get 495-500 h / s

That one card can't handle intensity 13, so set every gpu :

"gpu_conf" :
[
{ "id" : 0, "intensity" : 13, "double_threads" : true},
{ "id" : 1, "intensity" : 13, "double_threads" : true},
{ "id" : 2, "intensity" : 13, "double_threads" : true},
{ "id" : 3, "intensity" : 13, "double_threads" : true},
{ "id" : 4, "intensity" : 13, "double_threads" : true},
{ "id" : 5, "intensity" : 12, "double_threads" : true},
]

That's exactly what I thought. BUT! the miner issues an error if I enable this option. Swears at the syntax error in the config file.

Thanks! Good job!

What about setting over/underclocking and under/overvoltaging? Maybe you add parameters to set clocks and voltages?

Temperature and fan control didn't work for R9 270X 4Gb.

Miner didn't work if i use gpu_conf section and left only gpu id#2 (270X).

Wrote "Error CL_INVALID_DEVICE when calling clCreateContext."

If I set gpu0 or gpu1 or all 3 cards miner starts to mine.

I can add gpu/mem clock parameters, that's not a problem, voltages we will see Smiley

can you put a screenshot how it looks when all three cards work, but 270x does not report temp/fans rpm ?
