CPU Mining XMR – Monero revisited

We’ll be revisiting this topic because I just discovered that the wolf miner apparently is no longer or has been absorbed into something else.  So here’s another quick way to get started.  XMRIG has both support for linux and windows.  I’m using this primarily on ubuntu machines.

Download

Usage

Basic example

xmrig.exe -o pool.monero.hashvault.pro:5555 -u YOUR_WALLET -p x -k

Failover

xmrig.exe -o pool.monero.hashvault.pro:5555 -u YOUR_WALLET1 -p x -k -o pool.supportxmr.com:5555 -u YOUR_WALLET2 -p x -k

For failover you can add multiple pools, maximum count not limited.

Options

  -a, --algo=ALGO          cryptonight (default) or cryptonight-lite
  -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
      --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
      --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

Since version 0.8.0.

  • --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.

Common Issues

HUGE PAGES unavailable

  • Run XMRig as Administrator.
  • Since version 0.8.0 XMRig automatically enables SeLockMemoryPrivilege for current user, but reboot or sign out still required. Manual instruction.

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).

Mining on Windows 10

We currently have one full time miner that is running windows 10.  While I much prefer a Linux system to mine with. Until I get the device drivers for the RX 550 and RX 560 to work I’m stuck with windows.  The windows 10 miner in question currently has 3 RX 550 and 1 RX 560 mining with SG Miner 5.5.5.  With its current settings its averaging 1.15x H/s.  I think there is probably still some room for improvement without overclocking/flashing bios etc.  Using Minergate software to mine with it worked but was pretty unstable.  Every few hours would randomly drop a GPU sometimes two.  Yes a reboot brought everything back.  Its the lost productivity I have a problem with and that’s where we switched over to SG Miner 5.5.5.  It is more stable but doesn’t seem like its going to be as stable as the linux systems have been thus far.  On another note on some GPUs I have observed that Minergate while very easy to get going may only hash at half the rate I get with SG Miner on a linux system.

HitBtc Exchange – Be wary.

I have been using HITBTC for a few months now to but/sell XDN.  The exchange itself seems to function well.  Then I had a question and contacted support.  Weeks go by with 0 response.  Then finally I get an email saying please resubmit your request using their new trouble ticket system.  By then I’ve figured out the answer on my own.

Then there was a problem which they acknowledge that users are unable to deposit XDN….weeks go by problem still not fixed.  This caused me to miss out on being able to sell XDN at the highest prices that I personally have ever seen XDN reach.

Later I enable 2FA authentication which works fine until I have to wipe my phone.  There is a backup code that you are supposed to use which was also on my phone when it was wiped….my fault completely.  Contact support for assistance…..weeks go by….NOTHING.  No response whatsoever.   So now I am unable to access my account.

Conclusion HITBTC when it works is great.  If you ever run into an issue then you are on your own.  If the issue is their problem it may be weeks or months being fixed.  Kinda makes me think they are more interested in taking your $$ than providing a fully usable service.  As for me I will be looking at other exchanges to trade crypto currency on.

AMD RX 460 XMR Mining on Ubuntu 16.04 with SGMiner-GM

Last night got the software installed and started mining XMR using SGMiner.  base settings produced an average rate of approximately 268H/s.  Still trying to optimize settings but am now averaging about 301H/s.  At current market prices etc this translates to $35-40/month for this GPU.  Later I will try to post a guide of how I got it to work.  On paper anyway it is easier to be profitable with the RX series because they use less power than other cards.

XMR GPU Analysis – The rest of the list.

Again this was compiled using info from www.monerobenchmarks.info  Thanks!!  I had looked for a way to contact them and didn’t see a way to do so on their website.  Got a bit of time so rather than a multi-part post here’s the rest of the list.  If anyone would like to submit a GPU I’d be happy to add it to the list the submission form is at the bottom of this page…yes after the whole list.  At some point probably will cut the list back to the top 100 or so which will one shorten the list and two eliminate older equipment which may not be available or may not be profitable any more.

AMD RX 550 Mining

My new RX 550 video card arrived yesterday.  Last night I installed it in a ubuntu 14.04 machine.  The latest drivers don’t really seem to install on 14.04…so upgraded to 16.04.  So far so good. Installed the AMD GPU Pro drivers for 16.04.  They install just fine but clinfo shows no available OpenCL platforms.  After a bit of research I find there is a bug in the AMD GPU Pro drivers for ubuntu AND that bug is the RX 550.  So for now the card is mining XMR using Minergate on windows 10 pro.  Not happy about having to use windows to mine this card but until the next version of AMD GPU Pro it is what it is.

I went with minergate over claymore because claymore automatically takes a percentage off the top before the pool fees.
