XMR-Stak-AMD bare minimum config.txt
* Number of GPUs that you have in your system. Each GPU will get its own CPU thread.
"gpu_thread_num" : 1,
* GPU configuration. You should play around with intensity and worksize as the fastest settings will vary.
* index - GPU index number usually starts from 0
* intensity - Number of parallel GPU threads (nothing to do with CPU threads)
* worksize - Number of local GPU threads (nothing to do with CPU threads)
* affine_to_cpu - This will affine the thread to a CPU. This can make a GPU miner play along nicer with a CPU miner.
"gpu_threads_conf" : [
{ "index" : 0, "intensity" : 1, "worksize" : 1, "affine_to_cpu" : false },
* Platform index. This will be 0 unless you have different OpenCL platform - eg. AMD and Intel.
"platform_index" : 0,
* TLS Settings
* If you need real security, make sure tls_secure_algo is enabled (otherwise MITM attack can downgrade encryption
* to trivially breakable stuff like DES and MD5), and verify the server's fingerprint through a trusted channel.
* use_tls - This option will make us connect using Transport Layer Security.
* tls_secure_algo - Use only secure algorithms. This will make us quit with an error if we can't negotiate a secure algo.
* tls_fingerprint - Server's SHA256 fingerprint. If this string is non-empty then we will check the server's cert against it.
"use_tls" : false,
"tls_secure_algo" : true,
"tls_fingerprint" : "",
* pool_address - Pool address should be in the form "". Only stratum pools are supported.
* wallet_address - Your wallet, or pool login.
* pool_password - Can be empty in most cases or "x".
"pool_address" : "",
"wallet_address" : "44AFFq5kSiGBoZ4NMDwYtN18obc8AemS33DBLWs3H7otXft3XjrpDtQGv7SqSsaBYBb98uNbr2VBBEt7f2wfn3RVGQBEP3A",
"pool_password" : "x",
* Network timeouts.
* Because of the way this client is written it doesn't need to constantly talk (keep-alive) to the server to make
* sure it is there. We detect a buggy / overloaded server by the call timeout. The default values will be ok for
* nearly all cases. If they aren't the pool has most likely overload issues. Low call timeout values are preferable -
* long timeouts mean that we waste hashes on potentially stale jobs. Connection report will tell you how long the
* server usually takes to process our calls.
* call_timeout - How long should we wait for a response from the server before we assume it is dead and drop the connection.
* retry_time - How long should we wait before another connection attempt.
* Both values are in seconds.
* giveup_limit - Limit how many times we try to reconnect to the pool. Zero means no limit. Note that stak miners
* don't mine while the connection is lost, so your computer's power usage goes down to idle.
"call_timeout" : 10,
"retry_time" : 10,
"giveup_limit" : 0,
* Output control.
* Since most people are used to miners printing all the time, that's what we do by default too. This is suboptimal
* really, since you cannot see errors under pages and pages of text and performance stats. Given that we have internal
* performance monitors, there is very little reason to spew out pages of text instead of concise reports.
* Press 'h' (hashrate), 'r' (results) or 'c' (connection) to print reports.
* verbose_level - 0 - Don't print anything.
* 1 - Print intro, connection event, disconnect event
* 2 - All of level 1, and new job (block) event if the difficulty is different from the last job
* 3 - All of level 1, and new job (block) event in all cases, result submission event.
* 4 - All of level 3, and automatic hashrate report printing
"verbose_level" : 3,
* Automatic hashrate report
* h_print_time - How often, in seconds, should we print a hashrate report if verbose_level is set to 4.
* This option has no effect if verbose_level is not 4.
"h_print_time" : 60,
* Daemon mode
* If you are running the process in the background and you don't need the keyboard reports, set this to true.
* This should solve the hashrate problems on some emulated terminals.
"daemon_mode" : false,
* Output file
* output_file - This option will log all output to a file.
"output_file" : "",
* Built-in web server
* I like checking my hashrate on my phone. Don't you?
* Keep in mind that you will need to set up port forwarding on your router if you want to access it from
* outside of your home network. Ports lower than 1024 on Linux systems will require root.
* httpd_port - Port we should listen on. Default, 0, will switch off the server.
"httpd_port" : 0,
* prefer_ipv4 - IPv6 preference. If the host is available on both IPv4 and IPv6 net, which one should be choose?
* This setting will only be needed in 2020's. No need to worry about it now.
"prefer_ipv4" : true,
