By BruceleeonPhoenixMiner is fast (arguably the fastest) Ethash (ETH, ETC, Muiscoin, EXP, UBQ, etc.) miner that supports
both AMD and Nvidia cards (including in mixed mining rigs). It runs under Windows x64 and Linux x64
and has a developer fee of 0.65% (the lowest in the industry). This means that every 90
minutes the miner will mine for us, its developers, for 35 seconds.
The speed is generally faster than Claymore's Ethereum miner in eth only mode
(we have measured about 0.4-1.3% speed improvement but your results may be slightly lower or
higher depending on the GPUs). To achieve highest possible speed on AMD cards it may be needed
to manually adjust the GPU tune factor (a number from 8 to about 400, which can be changed
interactively with the + and - keys while the miner is running).
If you have used Claymore's Dual Ethereum miner, you can switch to PhoenixMiner with
minimal hassle as we support most of Claymore's command-line options and confirguration
files with the notable exception of the dual mining feature (yet).
Please note that PhoenixMiner is extensively tested on many mining rigs but there still may be some bugs.
Additionally, we are actively working on bringing many new features in the future releases.
If you encounter any problems or have feature requests, please post them here (in this thread).
We will do our best to answer in timely fashion.
Supports new "dual mining" mode: mining both Ethereum and Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal at the same time, with no impact on Ethereum mining speed. Ethereum-only mining mode is supported as well. Effective Ethereum mining speed is higher by 3-5% because of a completely different miner code - much less invalid and outdated shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels. Supports both AMD and nVidia cards, even mixed. No DAG files. Supports all Stratum versions for Ethereum: can be used directly without any proxies with all pools that support eth-proxy, qtminer or miner-proxy. Supports Ethereum and Siacoin solo mining. Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Decred. Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Siacoin. Supports Stratum for Lbry, Pascal, Blake2s, Keccak. Supports failover. Displays detailed mining information and hashrate for every card. Supports remote monitoring and management. Supports GPU selection, built-in GPU overclocking features and temperature management. Supports Ethereum forks (Expanse, etc). Windows and Linux versions.
By BruceleeonThis utility can work with Claymore's Ethereum Dual miner v4.3 or higher.
Remote monitoring: hashrates, GPUs temperature, fan speeds, current pool names, etc. Remote management: restart miners, apply "epools.txt", "dpools.txt" and "config.txt" files. Simple webserver. Notes:
You can send same file to several miners at once.
Before sending a file, all strings %NAME% will be replaced with miner names.
For example, you send epools.txt which contains this line:
POOL: eth-eu.dwarfpool.com:8008, WALLET: 0xD69af2A796A737A103F12d2f0BCC563a13900E6F/%NAME%, PSW: x
Every miner will get own epools.txt with their names, for example:
POOL: eth-eu.dwarfpool.com:8008, WALLET: 0xD69af2A796A737A103F12d2f0BCC563a13900E6F/Rig1, PSW: x
Quick start guide:
Press "Add Miner" button, specify miner IP and port for remote management (default is 3333). Add all your miners in the same way. You can see statistics now and manage miners remotely. In miner properties you can specify hashrate of miner and warning temperature, manager will warn you if something goes wrong. Table columns help:
"Name" - miner name.
"IP:port" - miner IP and port for remote management.
"Running time" - miner running time, also number of miner restarts.
"Ethereum Stats" - current miner speed for Ethereum, number of accepted shares,
number of rejected shares, number of incorrectly calculated shares, rejected/accepted ratio.
"Decred Stats: - same statistics for Decred.
"GPU Temperature" - GPU temperatures and fans speed.
"Pool" - current Ethereum and Decred pools, number of failovers.
"Version" - miner version.
"Comments" - miner comments that you can set in the miner properties dialog.
