UselethMiner

Post by macminergod »

UselethMiner is an ETHASH CPU & GPU miner


Download UselethMiner


Note: Install requires OpenSSL as prerequisite if you get an SSL error, see below.



Usage:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/uselethminer/uselethminer account.worker@server.com:3333


So using Unmineable:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/uselethminer/uselethminer ETH:ADDRESS.WORKER@ethash.unmineable.com:3333

Or for Mac Apple M1 Max / Ultra / ARM:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/uselethminer/uselethminer ETH:ETH:ADDRESS.WORKER@ethash.unmineable.com:3333 --flavor armv8af --size 64 -t 20 --flavor-gpu metal --size-gpu 128


The above parameters for MacOS M1 Ultra: Using CPU Mining Algo armv8af with 64 CPU Block Size, GPU for arm and 128 GPU Chung size.


speaks EthereumStratum/1.0.0, with automatic failover
comes with an aggregating (potentially encrypted) proxy you can also use for GPU/ASICs
runs on Linux (x86-64), Windows (x86-64) and macOS (x86-64 and arm64)
can auto-scale CPU usage based on machine load, so you can run it in the background
has JSON-RPC/TCP control
has a 1% devfee (for both miner and proxy)
may be profitable
may be useleth

Re: UselethMiner

Post by TR3B »

Hey there! I'm super confused about uselethminer.

Commands only run when I use the full path from ~

Code: Select all

/usr/local/uselethminer/uselethminer COMMANDSHERE
But when I cd into that dir and run a command it does not... weird, anyways...

To see all available commands:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/uselethminer/uselethminer uselethminer
Fine but then running any configuration...

Code: Select all

/usr/local/uselethminer/uselethminer 0x07D91907b1F0F78591C2E3291ed87E465Bd1Eaa8.eth-us-east1@nanopool.org:9433 -f armv8af -s 88 -fg metal
It just idles...

Code: Select all

UselethMiner v0.23
[SYSTEM] Apple M1 Max, 10 threads, arm64, 64 GB RAM
[CFETHASH][CPU] Selecting: ARMv8A (Full) (from commandline)
[CFETHASH][GPU] Selecting: Metal (from commandline)
[CONTROLLER][RPC] Listening on 127.0.0.1:3326
It would be great if we could create a config file for uselethminer to make this easier to switch between pools?
Either way has anyone got this to work?

For anyone getting this:


[CONTROLLER][BUG] Thread varying cannot be used if (also) GPU mining, it kills performance for an unknown reason


You're using the wrong parameter. Try:


--flavor armv8af --size 64 -t 20 --flavor-gpu metal --size-gpu 128
