Operating Systems

I am using Windows and my console output is a mess.

When you run miniZ, you have various arguments available that enable you to customize your console output and get the information about what is going on with your mining.

The use of colors makes it easier for the user to check the information (check here to see how it looks like). However, if you are not using Windows 10, it is likely that the console output gets all cluttered and unreadable.

The easiest solution is to use the --nocolor argument when running miniZ. This will help clean up the console. The downside is that you get rid of colors too.

If you like to have a more colorful output, you should know that you can install another console on Windows. We tried ConEmu terminal emulator and it worked fine. There are others available, which should also work OK. 

Happy mining!

Efficiency

How to tune miniZ performance at low power? (--f11)

miniZ includes a command line argument for improving performance at lower power values. When you’re adjusting your power and OC setting values you can play around with the optimization option --f11. This is useful for Equihash 144,5 algo only.

You can set it to levels [0-3], however 0 and 1 are the interesting ones. --f11=1 is the default value and the best for stock settings.

Usually, at low power --f11=0 produces better efficiency.

For the 1070 Ti  (pl:90 W, core clk: +240, mem clock: -300) we get:

With --f11=1 (default):
[ 0d 2h31m48s] 0>GTX 1070 Ti 100% [49°C/45%]*25.85 I/s 51.6(51.7)Sol/s  88( 89.2)W

With --f11=0:
[ 0d 3h 2m54s] 0>GTX 1070 Ti 99.8% [49°C/45%]*26.32 I/s 52.6(52.6)Sol/s  90( 89.5)W

As you can see, in this case there is a significant performance improvement by setting --f11=0. You should check this for your own settings and GPUs.

For other command line arguments check Usage page.

Happy mining!

GPUs

miniZ with NVIDIA mining series

Some of you were unable to run miniZ with the NVIDIA mining series cards, on Windows. These cards require an older driver (≥382.53, depending on card and brand) that is not compatible with cuda 9.2 (see Table 1).

We made available a version compiled with cuda 8.0 for Windows for you to use with these GPUs.

Both Linux and Windows miniZ cuda 8.0 versions should run fine with the P106-100 and P104-100 GPUs across different brands.

Download here.

Your feedback is important. Leave us a message below letting us know how it went.

Mining Pools

Mining ZEL, BTCZ, BTG to 2miners

To be able to mine with miniZ to 2miners pool you only need to specify btg, btcz, or zel.

There is no need to write the whole server name and port number (european server). miniZ will autocomplete for you:

miniZ.exe --url wallet.worker@btcz --log --gpu-line --extra

If you are mining solo just write: solo-btg, solo-btcz, or solo-zel.
miniZ.exe --url wallet.worker@solo-zel --log --gpu-line --templimit 70 --extra

For BTG, if you are using a non european server you need to write: us-btg or us-solo-btg (us server) or asia-btg or asia-solo-btg (asia server).
miniZ.exe --url wallet.worker@asia-solo-btg --log --gpu-line --templimit 70 --extra

For more information on options and usage examples read here.
