English PhoenixMiner 5.0b: fastest Ethereum/Ethash miner with lowest devfee (Win/Linux)

PhoenixMiner · May 27, 2020 · 2531 hits

IMPORTANT! All owners of AMD cards with 4 GB RAM must upgrade to PhoenixMiner 5.0b or later version to continue mining after DAG epoch 350 (i.e. about the start of June 2020 for ETC, and the middle of July 2020 for ETH).

Changes in version 5.0b (since 4.9c): Added support for mining with 4 GB AMD cards beyond the DAG epoch 350. Depending on the OS and driver versions, you will be able to use 4 GB AMD cards until epoch 372-373 under Windows, and 380 under Linux. Added new -dagrestart command-line option to work around the problems with DAG allocation on 4 GB AMD cards under some driver versions. See Readme.txt for more information. Added support for latest AMD drivers 20.4.2 under Windows and 20.10-1048554 under Linux Many other small improvements and fixes

PhoenixMiner 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.

PhoenixMiner also supports Ubqhash for mining UBQ, ProgPOW for mining BCI, and dual mining Ethash/Ubqhash with Blake2s.

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.

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.

Changes in latest version 4.9c : Added support for AMD RX5500 cards Added support for the latest AMD Windows drivers 19.12.3 Adding support for AMD Linux drivers 19.50-967956 Adding option -rate 2 to use the command name "eth_submitHashRate" instead of "eth_submitHashrate" when solo mining Fixed the problem with loading NVML with the latest Nvidia drivers Fixed a problem that was introduced in 4.8c causing mismatching of the cards when using more than one value in -cclock or any other command-line argument with more than one value (i.e. when using different values for each card) Added an HTML version of the documentation for better navigation and readability Other small improvements and fixes.

Changes in version 4.8c: Added support for the latest AMD drivers under Linux 19.30-934563 and for mining with RX5700 cards under Linux. Note that drivers are quite buggy and most of the overclocking options don't work, as well as most of the hardware monitoring options. Added a new flexible way for setting GPU-specific options with selectors. Example: -cclock 1-3:1090,4:1300 -mclock nvidia:+450,amd:2000,*:1900,gtx*1070*ti:+200 See Readme.txt for more information. Added command-line option -gbase to set 0-base or 1-based GPU indexes (the default is 1). With -gbase 1 (the default), the first GPU is GPU1, then GPU2, etc. With -gbase 0 the first GPU is GPU0, second - GPU1, etc. Note that this also changes the indexes that are used with all command line options that accept GPU indexes (e.g. -gpus) as well as these used with the interactive commands on the miner shell window Validated support for the latest AMD Windows drivers 19.11.3 (but they already work with 4.7c because there were no significant changes in the OpenCL driver) Other small improvements and fixes.

Pool options:

  1. Command-line arguments

Note that PhoenixMiner supports most of the command-line options of Claymore's dual Ethereum miner so you can use the same command line options as the ones you would have used with Claymore's miner.

-pool Ethash pool address (prepend the host name with ssl:// for SSL pool, or http:// for solo mining) -wal Ethash wallet (some pools require appending of user name and/or worker) -pass Ethash password (most pools don't require it, use 'x' as password if unsure) -worker Ethash worker name (most pools accept it as part of wallet) -proto Selects the kind of stratum protocol for the ethash pool: 1: miner-proxy stratum spec (e.g. coinotron) 2: eth-proxy (e.g. dwarfpool, nanopool) - this is the default, works for most pools 3: qtminer (e.g. ethpool) 4: EthereumStratum/1.0.0 (e.g. nicehash) 5: EthereumStratum/2.0.0 -coin Ethash coin to use for devfee to avoid switching DAGs:

  1. Configuration files

Note that PhoenixMiner supports the same configuration files as Claymore's dual Ethereum miner so you can use your existing configuration files without any changes.

Instead of using command-line options, you can also control PhoenixMiner with configuration files. If you run PhoenixMiner.exe without any options, it will search for the file config.txt in the current directory and will read its command-line options from it. If you want, you can use file with another name by specifying its name as the only command-line option when running PhoenixMiner.exe.

You will find an example config.txt file in the PhoenixMiner's directory.

Instead of specifying the pool(s) directly on the command line, you can use another configuration file for this, named epools.txt. There you can specify one pool per line (you will find an example epools.txt file in the PhoenixMiner's directory).

For the dual mining pools, you can use the dpools.txt file, which has the same format as epools.txt but for the secondary coin. You will find an example epools.txt file in the PhoenixMiner's directory. Note that unlike the epools.txt, which is loaded each time when the miner starts, the dpools.txt file is only read if you specify a dual mining pool on the command line with -dpool, or at least add the -dcoin blake2s command-line option.

The advantages of using config.txt and epools.txt/dpools.txt files are:

  • If you have multiple rigs, you can copy and paste all settings with these files
  • If you control your rigs via remote control, you can change pools and even the miner options by uploading new epools.txt files to the miner, or by uploading new config.txt file and restarting the miner.
  1. Remote monitoring and management

Phoenix miner is fully compatible with Claymore's dual miner protocol for remote monitoring and management. This means that you can use any tools that are build to support Claymore's dual miner, including the "Remote manager" application that is part of Claymore's dual miner package.

We are working on much more powerful and secure remote monitoring and control functionality and control center application, which will allow better control over your remote or local rigs and some unique features to increase your mining profits.
