Ethereum CUDA Miner
Docker container for Ethereum mining with CUDA.
Simple and easy to run, if you have a Nvidia GPU and want to mine eth.
Note This image builds the Genoil ethminer, which is faster than the standard opencl ethminer. https://github.com/Genoil/cpp-ethereum
- Nvidia drivers for your GPU, you can get them here: Nvidia drivers
- nvidia-docker (so docker can access your GPU) install instructions here: nvidia-docker
How to run
nvidia-docker run -it online2311/docker-ethminer ARG1 ARG2 ... # Example nvidia-docker run -it online2311/docker-ethminer \ -S eth.f2pool.com:8008 -SP 1 -L sequential \ -O 0xA28d0439Daa02b64f0fCf16541e7CDCD2facb691.ZhangJing
Note --farm-recheck and -U are set by default
Note Be sure to change the -O argument to your mining address and email. The format goes like this "address.worker/email"
Genoil's ethminer 0.9.41-genoil-1.1.7 ===================================================================== Forked from github.com/ethereum/cpp-ethereum CUDA kernel ported from Tim Hughes' OpenCL kernel With contributions from nicehash, nerdralph, RoBiK and sp_ Please consider a donation to: ETH: 0xA28d0439Daa02b64f0fCf16541e7CDCD2facb691 Usage ethminer [OPTIONS] Options: Work farming mode: -F,--farm <url> Put into mining farm mode with the work server at URL (default: http://127.0.0.1:8545) -FF,-FO, --farm-failover, --stratum-failover <url> Failover getwork/stratum URL (default: disabled) --farm-retries <n> Number of retries until switch to failover (default: 3) -S, --stratum <host:port> Put into stratum mode with the stratum server at host:port -FS, --failover-stratum <host:port> Failover stratum server at host:port -O, --userpass <username.workername:password> Stratum login credentials -FO, --failover-userpass <username.workername:password> Failover stratum login credentials (optional, will use normal credentials when omitted) --work-timeout <n> reconnect/failover after n seconds of working on the same (stratum) job. Defaults to 180. Don't set lower than max. avg. block time -SC, --stratum-client <n> Stratum client version. Defaults to 1 (async client). Use 2 to use the new synchronous client. -SP, --stratum-protocol <n> Choose which stratum protocol to use: 0: official stratum spec: ethpool, ethermine, coinotron, mph, nanopool (default) 1: eth-proxy compatible: dwarfpool, f2pool, nanopool 2: EthereumStratum/1.0.0: nicehash -SE, --stratum-email <s> Email address used in eth-proxy (optional) --farm-recheck <n> Leave n ms between checks for changed work (default: 500). When using stratum, use a high value (i.e. 2000) to get more stable hashrate output Benchmarking mode: -M [<n>],--benchmark [<n>] Benchmark for mining and exit; Optionally specify block number to benchmark against specific DAG. --benchmark-warmup <seconds> Set the duration of warmup for the benchmark tests (default: 3). --benchmark-trial <seconds> Set the duration for each trial for the benchmark tests (default: 3). --benchmark-trials <n> Set the duration of warmup for the benchmark tests (default: 5). Simulation mode: -Z [<n>],--simulation [<n>] Mining test mode. Used to validate kernel optimizations. Optionally specify block number. Mining configuration: -G,--opencl When mining use the GPU via OpenCL. -U,--cuda When mining use the GPU via CUDA. -X,--cuda-opencl Use OpenCL + CUDA in a system with mixed AMD/Nvidia cards. May require setting --opencl-platform 1 --opencl-platform <n> When mining using -G/--opencl use OpenCL platform n (default: 0). --opencl-device <n> When mining using -G/--opencl use OpenCL device n (default: 0). --opencl-devices <0 1 ..n> Select which OpenCL devices to mine on. Default is to use all -t, --mining-threads <n> Limit number of CPU/GPU miners to n (default: use everything available on selected platform) --allow-opencl-cpu Allows CPU to be considered as an OpenCL device if the OpenCL platform supports it. --list-devices List the detected OpenCL/CUDA devices and exit. Should be combined with -G or -U flag -L, --dag-load-mode <mode> DAG generation mode. parallel - load DAG on all GPUs at the same time (default) sequential - load DAG on GPUs one after another. Use this when the miner crashes during DAG generation single <n> - generate DAG on device n, then copy to other devices --cl-extragpu-mem Set the memory (in MB) you believe your GPU requires for stuff other than mining. default: 0 --cl-local-work Set the OpenCL local work size. Default is 64 --cl-global-work Set the OpenCL global work size as a multiple of the local work size. Default is 4096 * 64 --cuda-extragpu-mem Set the memory (in MB) you believe your GPU requires for stuff other than mining. Windows rendering e.t.c.. --cuda-block-size Set the CUDA block work size. Default is 128 --cuda-grid-size Set the CUDA grid size. Default is 8192 --cuda-streams Set the number of CUDA streams. Default is 2 --cuda-schedule <mode> Set the schedule mode for CUDA threads waiting for CUDA devices to finish work. Default is 'sync'. Possible values are: auto - Uses a heuristic based on the number of active CUDA contexts in the process C and the number of logical processors in the system P. If C > P, then yield else spin. spin - Instruct CUDA to actively spin when waiting for results from the device. yield - Instruct CUDA to yield its thread when waiting for results from the device. sync - Instruct CUDA to block the CPU thread on a synchronization primitive when waiting for the results from the device. --cuda-devices <0 1 ..n> Select which CUDA GPUs to mine on. Default is to use all General Options: -v,--verbosity <0 - 9> Set the log verbosity from 0 to 9 (default: 8). -V,--version Show the version and exit. -h,--help Show this help message and exit.
