Bzminer Basic Commands

To modify or optimize your miner, can add the following commands where needed.

-a, -a2selection of algorithm for main and dual mining;
--disabledisables the specified video cards from mining. A space is used as a separator. Use the device ID in the format pci_bus:pci_device (eg --disable 1:0 3:0). Use the --devices command to find the device IDs. In HiveOS, this parameter is set in the add. configuration;
-wthis field specifies the address of your wallet or the address of the account on the pool;
--w2to specify the second address if you mine in dual mode;
--pool_password, --pool_password2password, use x by default;
-w, --worker, --worker2worker name (rig ). It is set either as a separate parameter or through a dot after the wallet address;
--cpu-priority the level of CPU utilization during mining on a video card. The default is set to 2. If the processor does not pull, you can set 0. The maximum value is 5;
--reconnect-on-fail-sharesreconnect the miner to the pool in case of receiving rejected shares from the pool ;
--nvidia 1mine only on Nvidia devices;
--amd 1mine only on AMD devices;
-h, --helpdisplay all available commands.

Bzminer Overclocking

Please use these commands with caution. I take no responsibility with there use.

--oc_lock_core_clockLock core overclock value. You can also set different values ​​for video cards by specifying their ID, for example --oc_lock_core_clock 1000 1200 1300 (1000 for video card with ID0, 1200 for video card with ID1, 1300 for video card with ID2);
--oc_lock_memory_clockLock overclock value in memory. You can also set different values ​​for video cards separated by a space;
--oc_core_clock_offsetsets the core clock frequency of the video card in MHz. A space-separated value can be specified for multiple cards;
--oc_memory_clock_offsetsets the graphics card memory frequency in MHz. You can specify a value for several cards through a space;
--oc_power_limitspecifying the power limit (video card consumption), in watts. Through a space, you can specify a value unique for each card. For example --oc_power_limit 140 150 160 150.
