Mega : Download SRB_Miner

If you have a Vega, and want to mine V7 algos, use Adrenaline 18.6.1 drivers, if you want to mine Heavy algos, use Adrenaline 18.3.4

Supports Nicehash & SSL/TLS encrypted connections
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================
Significant hashrate increase (up to 15%) on VEGA56/64/FE/VII
Small hashrate increase on RX cards

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!

Supported algos:

Cryptonight [normal]
Cryptonight Lite [lite]
Cryptonight V7 [normalv7]
Cryptonight Lite V7 [litev7]
Cryptonight Heavy [heavy]
Cryptonight Haven [haven]
Cryptonight Fast [fast]
Cryptonight BitTubeV2 [bittubev2]
Cryptonight StelliteV4 [stellitev4]
Cryptonight ArtoCash [artocash]
Cryptonight Alloy [alloy]
Cryptonight B2N [b2n]
Cryptonight MarketCash [marketcash]
Cryptonight Italo [italo]
Supports Nicehash, Nicehash V7 & SSL/TLS encrypted connections

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

Extra:

Watchdog that monitors your GPU threads, if they stop hashing for a few minutes, miner restarts itself
Hash monitor, if 5 minute average hash falls under the value you define, miner restarts itself
Set system shutdown temperature, to protect your GPU’s from overheating
Restart (disable/enable) 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.

Update infos :

Don’t copy newer version of miner over old one, or if you do make sure you delete .srb files from Cache folder before running it!

SRB-RESTARTER

SRB-Restarter is a tool that monitors the main SRBMiner process, and if it’s not running for some reason (like an app crash for example), it will run the script you specify (restart miner).

Only 3 parameters :

–interval value_in_seconds [def. is 10]
Specifies how often to check is the SRBMiner process running

–instance number
Use it if you run multiple SRBMiner instances on the same machine, example is below
You must use the following file naming :
SRBMiner-CN-n.exe where n is the instance number

–run filename [name of .bat file to run]
Name of .bat you want to run if SRBMiner process in not running

Note:
Miner is considered ‘not running’ after 2 checks!

Examples:

SRB-Restarter.exe
[This will set interval to 10 seconds, and start.bat if SRBMiner process is not running. It will monitor for a process named SRBMiner-CN.exe]

SRB-Restarter.exe --interval 5 --run turtle-coin.bat
[This will set interval to 5 seconds and run turtle-coin.bat if SRBMiner process is not running. It will monitor for a process named SRBMiner-CN.exe]

SRB-Restarter.exe --interval 30 --run start-heavy.bat --instance 1
[This will set interval to 30 seconds and run start-heavy.bat if SRBMiner process is not running. It will monitor for a process named SRBMiner-CN-1.exe]

V1.9.0

  • Added gpu ramp-up (slow start) possibility, so your PSU won’t get suddenly overloaded (–enablegpurampup)
  • Added low mode tweak profiles
  • Added parameter --precompileblocks, which can set the number of blocks that get precompiled on CN/R algo
  • Miner will try to restart if CN/R precompilation process takes more than 10 minutes for a gpu
  • Minor bug fixes

V1.8.9

  • Added tweaking profiles for RX 550/560, RX 470/480/570/580/590 - for some small fine tuning of existing vbios straps
  • Profiles 1-6 for Vegas are now a little lighter, 7-10 stayed same
  • Added embedded binaries for some gpu’s
  • Added parameter --nobinaries, use it to disable usage of embedded binaries
  • Fixed some bugs in GPU detection code
  • Added more info to log when using tweaking profiles
  • Added watchdog for too many invalid job results, switches to next pool if more than 5 within the same connection
  • Usage of external tweaking tool is now allowed, so you can now fine tune a profile even more if you know how
  • Minor bug fixes

V1.8.8

  • Reduced CPU usage up to ~50%, can be noticed on algos with small scratchpad
  • User is now informed about tweaking status on the screen too, not just in log
  • No more --gpureorder, device ordering by bus id is now the default/only display mode
  • Added parameter --watchdogrounds , which controls after how many rounds will watchdog trigger
  • min_rig_speed_duration default is 1 minute now, because of the new --watchdogrounds parameter
  • Fixed a few cosmetical things on web stats

V1.8.7

  • Improvements with tweak profile 10 on Vega64 with Samsung memory
  • Fixed a bug with pool reconnect on job timeout
  • job_timeout is now disabled by default, to enable it set a value > 0

  • Added info in api/web stats about tweak profile
  • Made hashrate display on web stats page bigger
  • In guided setup mode changed max wallet and password length to 200 so address+payment id can be used

  • Changed --maxnosharesent default value from 15 minutes to 30
  • Logging is now disabled by default in the example start.bat
  • Added parameter --preparedata, which could pontentially make a small speed increase on weak GPU’s, but also could make it worse. All algos except webchain
