Mining Monero with xmr-stak 2.4 in a machine with NVIDIA video card under Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Here are all the steps you need to begin mining Monero crypto coin with XMR-STAK 2.4. We can use our ASUS ROG POSEIDON GTX 1080Ti Platinum Edition to mine along with our processor AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X (16 cores with 32 threads with 3.4GHz base frequency and boost to 4GHz). As you’ll see our processor has better performance with cryptonight v7 than our GPU.

STEP 1) Install all the needed software

  1. Install linux distro – Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
  2. Install NVIDIA proprietary driver
  3. Install NVIDIA CURA Toolkit
  4. Build XMR-STAK

This step is a matter of another howto, you can check all the step and detail explanations here – Install xmr-stak 2.4 in a machine with NVIDIA video card under Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Skip it if you just followed the above howto and you want to see an example of how to mine the Monero coins with XMR-STAK using CPU and GPU power.

STEP 2) First run of XMR-STAK

If you followed our howto above you should have installed XMR-STAK in “~/xmr-stak/build/bin”, so all the examples will be run from this directory.

myuser@srv:~/xmr-stak/build/bin$ ./xmr-stak

You could use monero7 or cryptonight_v7to mine Monero. The pool we use is under “Pool address:” – pool.monero.spacepools.org:3333 You cannot mine crypto without to be part of a pool of other mining “people”, because the difficulty is too big for solo mining! So choose your mining pool carefully – by the “Total Pool Fee”, which for the Spacepools is 0.1% and the stability of the pool.
The username is your MONERO wallet address (we changed our to invalid 111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111, DO NOT USE THIS ADDRESS) – check this to see how you can generate monero wallet address – Generate a new Monero address (wallet). The password in most cases is your email address, with which you could change some account information in the pool web page.

It is good to see

Result accepted by the pool.

it means your discovered a hash and you are going to be awarded by the pool for your mining share! As many as “accepted results” as good as for you!

As you can see our ASUS ROG POSEIDON GTX 1080Ti Platinum Edition without any overclocking has 771.5 H/s of Cryptonight v7 algorithm!
Our AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X (16 cores with 32 threads with 3.4GHz base frequency and boost to 4GHz) without any overclocking has 1295.1 of Cryptonight v7 algorithm! The performance of the CPU is almost double the performance of the GPU.
Our motherboard is ASUS ROG ZENITH EXTREME with 4x8Gbytes (G.Skill Trident Z RGB DIMM Kit 32GB F4-3200C14Q-32GTZR) of RAM running in fourth channel mode.

There are three control keys to display additional information of your XMR-STAK. Press one of the key during the program execution. In the above first run we used “h” and “r”.

'h' - hashrate
'r' - results
'c' - connection

The difficult is constant 50000 and you see we have multiple results, so we can try to higher it with another port (check for this the configuration page of the pool – https://dwarfpool.com/xmr/). The stats is “Earning in last 24 hours: 0.00753535 XMR”, “Current balance: 0.00732356 XMR” and ” Unconfirmed: 0.00078419 XMR” (in most cases all of it will be confirmed successfully), so the total monero we mined is “0.00810775 XMR” for these 14 hours with our machine and the estimate for the next 24 hours is “0.01440000 XMR” (for the current price you’ll earn 1.832300 USD for 24hours with this machine).

The GPU is using 143W and here is the used GPU RAM 10711MiB out of 11173MiB by xmr-stak.
All CPU cores are running at 3680.374 Mhz. The uptime is

myuser@srv:~/xmr-stak/build/bin$ uptime
 03:48:37 up 18:28,  3 users,  load average: 16.04, 16.05, 14.39

After the first run there will be created 4 files in your current directory of the xmr-stak binary:

The configuration files are

  • config.txt – the general config
  • pools.txt – configuration for what coin your are mining and which pool you are using. You can tune the rig naming and additional pools.
  • nvidia.txt – configuration for GPU miner part – GPU threads, blocks and affine_to_cpu. Definitely check this out.
  • cpu.txt – configuration for the cpu miner part – Thread configuration for each thread – a line for each core. CPU affinity, power mode and more.

These files are generated on the first run with default values and then you could quit the xmr-stak and edit the files with text editor.

* Options of the XMR-STAK program

As you can see all the algo you can use with this program – new and classic (the old) criptonight coins to mine like Monero, Electroneum, IntenseCoin and many more!
