SRBMiner Cryptonight AMD GPU Miner
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Download V1.5.3:
Mega : Download SRB_Miner


ATTENTION:
From V1.4.0 the miner uses a separate pools.txt file, where you define your pools, wallet, etc.
Config from older versions that includes pool related data, won't be used!


Supports:

- Cryptonight
- Cryptonight V7
- Cryptonight Lite
- Cryptonight Lite V7
- Cryptonight Heavy
- Cryptonight Ipbc
- Cryptonight ArtoCash
- Cryptonight Alloy


Supports Nicehash, Nicehash V7 & SSL/TLS encrypted connections

For best results use Blockchain compute drivers (Get it from here) or Radeon Adrenalin 17 or newer drivers.
ADL tested & working with Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition Beta for Blockchain Compute Driver Version 17.30.1029


What can this miner offer you beside usual mining functionalities:


DevFee:
- Low DevFee (0.85%) -> every ~2 hours 1 minute mining for the dev
- Non-agressive DevFee mining -> if miner can't connect to DevFee pool, no problem, switching back to user pool ASAP


Performance:
- Only one parameter you have to play with : intensity (0 - 300)
- Leave intensity on 0, and miner will try to set a minimum start intensity automatically
- To get even better results, there is an option to use double threads


Extra:
- Watchdog that monitors your GPU threads, if they stop working, miner exists, and restart script starts miner again
- Set system shutdown temperature, to protect your GPU's from overheating
- Restart (disable/enable) all your VEGA gpu's with devcon before mining
- API for rig monitoring


Tips:
- If you leave intensity on 0 it will play safe, so in many cases you can increase that value to get better results
- For better results set double_threads to true, and leave intensity on 0
- If you get an error that says it can't create scratchpad buffer, you have to lower intensity
- Largest intensity setting won't always give you the best hashrate. Experiment and find the best setting for your GPU.



How to set it up ?
Read rest of the text , or watch this great tutorial video (Thanks Geek Mark)

The config file :

"cryptonight_type" : "NORMAL, NORMALV7, LITE, LITEV7, HEAVY, IPBC, ARTOCASH OR ALLOY"
"intensity" : A NUMBER BETWEEN 0-300,
"double_threads" : TRUE OR FALSE


Some examples for "cryptonight_type"

normal
+Electroneum
+ByteCoin
+Karbo
+DigitalNote
+Leviar

normalv7
+Monero
+Stellite
+Intense
+Graft
+Masari
+BBS

lite
+Aeon

litev7
+Turtlecoin
+Iridium

heavy
+Sumokoin
+Haven
+Loki

ipbc
+Ipbc

artocash
+Artocash

alloy
+Alloy


Optional parameters :

"giveup_limit" : HOW MANY TIMES TO TRY CONNECTING TO A POOL BEFORE SWITCHING TO NEXT POOL
"timeout" : WHEN IS A CONNECTION TO POOL TREATED AS TIMED OUT , IN SECONDS
"retry_time" : HOW MUCH TO WAIT TILL RECONNECTING WHEN DISCONNECTED FROM POOL, IN SECONDS
"reboot_script" : FILENAME, TURN OFF BUILT IN WATCHDOG AND INSTEAD RUN A USER DEFINED .BAT FILE ON GPU FAILURE (included windows restart .bat)
"restart_devices_on_startup" : IF TRUE IT WILL USE DEVCON TO DISABLE/ENABLE EVERY VEGA GPU IN YOUR MACHINE BEFORE MINING STARTS
"restart_devices_on_startup_script" : FILENAME, THIS SCRIPT RUNS AFTER VEGA GPU ENABLE/DISABLE PROCESS, GOOD FOR SETTING UP OVERCLOCKING

API:
"api_enabled" : TRUE OR FALSE
"api_rig_name" : IDENTIFIER FOR YOUR RIG
"api_port" : PORT ON WHICH THE REST API RUNS (DEFAULT IS 21555 IF NOT SET)


AMD Overdrive ADL supported GPUs can use :
"target_temperature" : A NUMBER BETWEEN 0-99, MINER WILL TRY TO MAINTAIN THIS TEMPERATURE FOR GPUS (ADL TYPE 1 (OVERDRIVEN) ONLY)
"shutdown_temperature" : A NUMBER BETWEEN 0-100, IF THIS TEMPERATURE IS REACHED, MINER WILL SHUTDOWN SYSTEM (ADL MUST BE ENABLED)



#SET GPU'S MANUALLY
#This example uses GPU devices with ID 0,1,3,4 and every GPU has it's own setting
"gpu_conf" :
[
{ "id" : 0, "intensity" : 80, "worksize" : 8, "threads" : 1},
{ "id" : 1, "intensity" : 40, "worksize" : 8, "threads" : 2},
{ "id" : 3, "intensity" : 30, "worksize" : 8, "threads" : 2},
{ "id" : 4, "intensity" : 90, "worksize" : 8, "threads" : 1}
]

Some additional parameters you can use in gpu_conf:

"kernel" : 0-4 , IF 0, MINER WILL SELECT MOST SUITABLE KERNEL, OTHERS ARE : 1-FOR GCN CARDS, 2-FOR PRE-GCN CARDS, 3-FOR PRE-GCN EXPERIMENTAL 1, 4-FOR PRE-GCN EXPERIMENTAL 2
"target_temperature" : A NUMBER BETWEEN 0-99, MINER WILL TRY TO MAINTAIN THIS TEMPERATURE FOR GPU. IF TARGET_TEMPERATURE OPTION NOT SET TO ZERO ON CONFIG TOP, THIS SETTING IS IGNORED (ADL TYPE 1 (OVERDRIVEN) ONLY)
"target_fan_speed" : A NUMBER BETWEEN 0-6000, THE RPM (ROUNDS PER MINUTE) SPEED FOR FAN. (ADL MUST BE ENABLED)
"adl_type" : 1 OR 2 , 1 - USE OVERDRIVEN , 2 - USE OVERDRIVE 5, DEFAULT IS 1 IF NOT SET, IF YOU DON'T HAVE TEMP OR CLOCKS DISPLAYED, TRY USING 2 (MOSTLY FOR OLDER CARDS)


So if you for ex. have 6 GPU's but want only to use 3, first run SRBPolaris-CN.exe --listdevices to list devices and their id's, that you can put in config file under gpu_conf part.

DON'T comment out or remove intensity and double_threads setting at the top of the config file, just leave it as-is, because when you use a per card setting, those settings will be ignored.



The pools file:

{
"pools" :
[
{"pool_use_tls" : false, "keepalive" : false, "pool" : "pool1address", "wallet" : "pool1wallet", "password" : "x"},
{"pool_use_tls" : false, "keepalive" : true, "pool" : "pool2address", "wallet" : "pool2wallet", "password" : "x"},
{"pool_use_tls" : false, "keepalive" : false, "pool" : "pool3address", "wallet" : "pool3wallet", "password" : "x"}
]
}


After setting up the config.txt file, just run start.bat
If you want to create a separate config and pools for a different coin, use --config and --pools parameter.


Options:

- Press 's' to see some basic stats
- Press 'h' to see hashing speed
- Press 'p' to fast switch to next pool from pools config file
- Press number from 0-9 to disable/enable from gpu0-gpu9, then shift+0 for gpu10, shift+1 for gpu11..etc. until gpu19 max (use US keyboard where SHIFT+1 = !, SHIFT+2 = @ ..etc..)


Parameters (go in .bat):

--config filename (use config file other than config.txt)
--pools filename (use pools file other than pools.txt)
--logfile filename (enable logging to file)
--listdevices (list available devices)
--listdevicesreordered (list available devices ordered by busid)
--gpureorder (order devices by busid)
--adldisable (disable ADL)
--disablegpuwatchdog (disable gpu crash detection)

Info:
You have to change the wallet address in sample config.txt file, if you leave it, you will donate some hashing power to me.
