GitHub: DOWNLOAD XMRig v6.4.0

XMRig – High-performance open source cross-platform miner RandomX, CryptoNight, KawPow, AstroBWT and Argon2, with official Windows and Linux support. A program for mining coins on the RandomX and CryptoNight algorithms. Suitable for both AMD and Nvidia video cards and processors. The program has a commission to the developer in the form of 1-5%. In this step-by-step instruction, we will tell you how to set up the commission and body shirts for different coins.

Changes v6.4.0:

  • #1862 RandomX: removed rx/loki algorithm.
  • #1890 Added argon2/chukwav2 algorithm.
  • #1895 #1897 Added benchmark and stress test.
  • #1864 RandomX: improved software AES performance.
  • #1870 RandomX: fixed unexpected resume due to disconnect during dataset init.
  • #1872 RandomX: fixed randomx_create_vm call.
  • #1875 RandomX: fixed crash on x86.
  • #1876 RandomX: added huge-pages-jit config parameter.
  • #1881 Fixed possible race condition in hashrate counting code.
  • #1882 #1886 #1887 #1893 General code improvements.
  • #1885 Added more precise hashrate calculation.
  • #1889 Fixed libuv performance issue on Linux.

Support:

  • CPU (x64/x86/ARM)
  • OpenCL for AMD GPUs.
  • CUDA for NVIDIA GPUs via external CUDA plugin.

Usage and Customization

The preferred way to set up a miner is through a JSON configuration file as it is more flexible and user friendly. The CLI does not cover all features, such as mining profiles for different algorithms. Important parameters can be changed at runtime without restarting the miner by editing the configuration file or making API calls.

Fast start

In order to mine coins you need:

  • Download program
  • unzip to any convenient place
  • edit the .bat file with the desired coin (change the wallet to your own)

Configuring xmrig for Monero mining

To mine coins on the randomx algorithm, we need to create or edit a ready-made batch file for the coin you need. These are basic settings, which are sufficient for mining. We’ll look at the secondary settings later.

Decoding the contents of the batch file

Настройка батника xmrig для майнинга Monero
  1. xmrig – this key will indicate which program will be launched. We leave it as it is. For Nvidia, specify xmrig-nvidia
  2. -a randomx – specify the algorithm. For Monero, leave this one. For coins on the cryptonight-lite algorithm, we indicate it
  3. -o pool.supportxmr.com – we indicate the address of your pool. In this example, we have supportxmr, because at the time of writing, it has received the most positive reviews
  4. 5555 – after the pool address, specify the pool port with a colon. dwarfpool has 8050
  5. -u 4ALcw9nTAStZSshoWVUJakZ6tLwTDhixhQUQNJkCn4t3fG3MMK19WZM44HnQRvjqmz4LkkA8t565v7iBwQXx2r34HNroSAZ – after the -u key, we indicate the address of your digital wallet. Get it on the cryptocurrency exchange, or install a cold wallet
  6. –donate-level=1 настраиваем комиссию майнера. По умолчанию она составляет 5%. level=1 означает 1%

An example of a batch file for NiceHash:

xmrig -a randomx -o randomxmonero.eu.nicehash.com:3380 -u 1Pz3EcHsRuJkraNRACUrBrLaxiTPP1VHJZ.rig1 pause

An example of a batch file for AMD:

:start
xmrig -a randomx -o xmr-eu1.nanopool.org:14444 -u 44tLjmXrQNrWJ5NBsEj2R77ZBEgDa3fEe9GLpSf2FRmhexPvfYDUAB7EXX1Hdb3aMQ9FLqdJ56yaAhiXoRsceGJCRS3Jxkn.5d3c802ee0f8e12e4eb9792722b7816a42178aa29ef7477c138ddb940c55648d.rig1 -p x --donate-level=1 --opencl
goto start

An example of a batch file for Nvidia:

:start
xmrig -a randomx -o pool.supportxmr.com:5555 -u 44tLjmXrQNrWJ5NBsEj2R77ZBEgDa3fEe9GLpSf2FRmhexPvfYDUAB7EXX1Hdb3aMQ9FLqdJ56yaAhiXoRsceGJCRS3Jxkn.5d3c802ee0f8e12e4eb9792722b7816a42178aa29ef7477c138ddb940c55648d.rig1 -p x --donate-level=1 --cuda
