lolMiner is a mining software for a large number of cryptocurrency algorithms on video cards, including for Ethash, Etchash, Beam, as well as for the most popular variants of Cuckoo Cycle and Equihash.
lolMiner is based on OpenCL and was originally focused on mining with AMD graphics cards, but now it also supports mining with Nvidia, as well as mining with mixed AMD and Nvidia configurations. The key advantages of lolMiner are: wide compatibility with video cards of various types and brands, fair display of the hash rate and prompt online support.
Basic parameters in command line
Configure the algorithm to mine
There are two ways in lolMiner how to specify the algorithm you want to mine. You need to choose one of them to start mining.
The first option is –algo (-a) followed by one of the following algorithm names
|C30CTX||Cuckaroo 30 Cortex|
Note that you always can call
lolMiner --list-algos to get a list of all supported algorithms as well as the fee height. Also the list will inform you if the algorithms supports / requires the personalization option (–pers) that is required for some of the Equihash algorithms.
The 2nd way to configure lolMiner is via the parameter –coin (-c). This parameter does set more detailed settings for selected profiles and allows special functions, e.g. algorithm switchers or combination of an algorithm with the right personalization.
Available entries for –coin are:
|AION||Selecting Equihash 210/9 and right settings to mine Aion|
|AUTO144_5||Mine Equihash 144/5 and allow the pool to select the personalization|
|AUTO192_7||Mine Equihash 192/7 and allow the pool to select the personalization|
|BEAM||Mine Beam and switch algorithm on Beam Hash II / III fork height|
|BTCZ||Mine Equihash 144/5 with personalization for BitcoinZ|
|BTG||Mine Equihash 144/5 with personalization for Bitcoin Gold|
|ETC||Select settings & stratum to mine Ethereum Classic|
|ETH||Select settings & stratum to mine Ethereum|
|CTXC||Select settings & stratum to mine Cortex Ai|
|EXCC||Select settings & stratum to mine Exchange Coin|
|GRIN-C29M||Select settings & stratum to mine Grin C29|
|GRIN-C32||Select settings & stratum to mine Grin C32|
|MWC-C29D||Select settings & stratum to mine MWC C29|
|MWC-C31||Select settings & stratum to mine MWC C31|
|XSG||Mine Equihash 144/5 with personalization for Snow Gem|
|YEC||Mine Equihash 192/7 with personalization for YCash|
|ZCL||Mine Equihash 192/7 with personalization for Zclassic|
|ZEL||Mine Zelhash & stratum to mine FLUX (ZEL)|
|ZER||Mine Equihash 192/7 with personalization for Zero|
Note that you always can call
lolMiner --list-coins to get a list of all supported coin configurations as well as the fee height.
The parameter to select the mining pool to connect to is given by –pool. Note that this option takes the address as well as the port in the format
<pool address>:<pool port>.
The user name or wallet will be passed with the parameter –user. In case you pool requires a password to log in you can add the optional parameter –pass.
To configure fail-over pools the options –pool –user and –pass can be passed multiple times to the miner. They will be processed in order, so the first occurrence belongs to the primary connection, the second to the first fail-over and so on. When the miner looses connection to the primary pool too often (5 times in a short period of time), it will try to connect with the second set of credentials.
