Is it possible to use Nicehash Multi Algorithm Switching? (No.)
Sorry PiMPS but looks like nicehash doesn't see this fit to keep developing. More importantly, these methods were great with those algorithms that worked with sgminer5, but now, with many different miner programs needed for linux, autoswitching is not possible at this time.
Here is the Official Reply from Nicehash:
The 4xxx ports have been deprecated a long time ago. In order to do proper algo switching under Linux you should use SMA protocol, described here: https://www.nicehash.com/software-developers
This is the same protocol that is used by NiceHash Miner Legacy https://github.com/nicehash/NiceHashMinerLegacy - you can implement same backend logic, just port to Linux, shouldn't be that hard.
More importantly, different algos use the hardware so differently, that you would want to change clock and power configuration before switching anyway, so we implemented "miner flipping" on miner.farm.
This method ensures that miner will be stopped and the new miner will be started when you are changing profiles.
