GMiner v2.66: Download and configure - Quick start - Features

GMiner was created by a Russian group of specialists in the field of high performance computing and cryptography.
First version GMiner was released on September 21, 2018 and has been warmly received by users.
Thanks to its unique design and stability, in just six months, the miner became the favorite of Equihash algorithms.
The miner is focused on NVIDIA and AMD platforms and supports the most popular algorithms such as: Ethash, ProgPoW, KAWPOW, Equihash, CuckooCycle.
GMiner maintains a leading position in the mining of such coins as Beam, Grin, Cortex, Bitcoin Gold.
In 2020, the miner added support for Ethash, ProgPoW and KAWPOW algorithms with high performance relative to competitors.
The development team never stops at what has been achieved and achieves maximum performance of algorithms with minimum power consumption, these are the qualities that distinguish GMiner from competitors and win the hearts of users.

Miner Features:

  • the commission is charged continuously, and not at intervals (like most miners), which positively affects the profitability of the user on PPLNS pools
  • checking generated DAG, warning when GPU overclocking is very high for Ethash, Etchash, KAWPOW and ProgPoW algorithms, helps to overclock GPU without error
  • checking total CPU resources, warning when GPU overclocking is very high for Ethash, Etchash, 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 a different algorithm when mining Ethash + Zilliqa or Nicehash, which has a positive effect on user profitability
  • temperature control and GPU stop in case of overheating
  • watchdog - process-watcher of the state of the main systems of the miner, which will restart the miner in case of a crash or freeze
  • mechanism to restore a lost connection to the pool
  • maintaining reserve pools, the miner uses reserve pools until the connection with the main pool is restored
  • support for secure connections, server certificate verification (optional)
  • informative and readable output of statistics in the form of tables to the console
  • display of detailed information about 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
  • core frequency, memory frequency, core voltage, memory voltage, fan speed, overclocking with power limitation for Windows
  • secure DAG creation for Nvidia GPUs

Releases v2.66

  • fixed error –cclock for RX6700 / 6800/6900 under Windows
  • disable a sleeping computer while mining under Windows
  • improved compatibility with minerstat

Release v2.56

  • displays memory temperature for Nvidia cards under Windows (if GPU supports it)
  • displays memory temperature for AMD Windows and Linux cards (if GPU supports it)
  • removed algorithms cuckatoo31 / cuckatoo32

Release v2.55

  • kernel frequency lock function for Nvidia GPUs under Windows and Linux (–lock_cclock)

  • generates valid DAG in higher OC modes
  • DAG generation speed increased (up to 2x)

Release v2.53

  • fixed miner crashes when changing DAG for mining ETH + ZIL
  • fixed DAG caching on 6GB cards
  • apply lock_voltage before generating DAG (in 2.52 miner applied lock_voltage after generating DAG)

How do I set up Gminer?

An example of setting up Gminer for mining Ravencoin on the 2Miners pool.

miner.exe --algo kawpow --server --user YOUR_ADDRESS.RIG_ID --pass x

Here you need to replace 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.

Here is the setup process in video format. Don't forget to include Russian subtitles if necessary.

Fast start:

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

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 --user 3LsTTSsSy17xuoShcMHuRgGBxKn1AHgeVN --proto stratum

If you have a mixed installation, you can only run the miner on CUDA devices:
miner --algo ethash --server --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1 --opencl 0
or on OpenCL devices only:
miner --algo ethash --server --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1 --cuda 0
or on devices of your choice such as GPU0 GPU2 and GPU4:
miner --algo ethash --server --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 --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 --user 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5.worker1 --logfile c: \ log.txt
where "c: \ log.txt" is the path to the file with the miner's logs
