Proswitching question

Post by Jaiven » Sun May 09, 2021 11:04 pm

Hello, I am a bit confused with Proswitching and tried looking in the forums but didn't find a clear answer. I saw in a previous post someone stated Gminer is for ethash and equihash variant coins. So of I have c= omitted from mine_eth.bit does Proswitching enabled mine the eth and variant coins only? I ask because on the documentation page it is vague enough to make it sound like it switches to any coin which from what I was reading about these different algorithms would be bad based on your setup and what miner you are running. I'm just trying to make sure I am using Proswitching properly and to its full potential.

TLDR: I don't have "c=" in mine_eth.bat and only use=[worker name] like the tutorial tells me to. Am I doing it right for Proswitching?

Proswitching doesn't change algorithms. So if you are setup for equihash you can swap between whatever equihash. Ethash only has one coin, so it's just that coin.

--algo ethash --pers auto --server prohashing.com:3339 --user username --pass n=[Worker-Name],l=[RAM in GB]

this should be the minimum you need for ethash. Note you don't HAVE to set l, but for ethash it is better that you do.

Thank you Alynn,
What is the --pers auto command?

Sorry I should have removed that. It hurts nothing but is actually for equihash
