3 Miners

Post by jmarty71 » Sat Jun 12, 2021 6:35 pm

Hi - How can I set my 3 miners to look different? RIght now Prohashing is seeing 2 of my miners are the same but the scripts are different. Is it the "jmarty71"?

Command line parameters: --no-watchdog --pci-indexing -a ethash -o stratum+tcp://prohashing.com:3339 -p a=ethash,n=jmarty71,o=3080 -u jmarty71.2070 -w 2070 --api-bind-http 0.0.0.0:4028

Command line parameters: --no-watchdog --pci-indexing -a ethash -o stratum+tcp://prohashing.com:3339 -p a=ethash,n=jmarty71,o=3080 -u jmarty71.3080 -w 3080 --api-bind-http 0.0.0.0:4028

Yes, the n= in the password field is the name of the miner

So, I can change that without breaking anything? Since the u= is still jmarty71?

Yes, in fact it's encouraged to help with stat tracking on the dashboard. The -u argument is your username on Prohashing so the server knows which account you're working with and should be the same across all miners. The n= argument in the "-p" (password) argument is what the dashboard looks at in order to label each individual miner on the dashboard. For example, my CPU mines Monero and the computer is named editor9000 so in my password argument I use n=cpu_editor9000. My GPU mines Etchash so the name there is n=gpu_editor9000.

tl;dr If you give each miner a different name with "n=" then each one will look distinct on the dashboard in Prohashing and it won't break anything.
