New to PIMP, Issues setting/replacing ".pimpworker" in Claymore's Dual Miner

  • To Whom This May Concern,

    I was recently turned onto PIMP Linux after reading an online review and decided to give it a shot. I quickly fell in love and now have 2 systems running it as their operating system, and another in the making. With that said, I'm still new to Linux and very inexperienced with it.

    I found it pretty straightforward, and had no major issues or inconvenience setting it up. However, there is one issue in particular I've been struggling with.

    I run "Claymore's Dual Miner" setup for mining Ethereum, but cannot seem to correctly set my machine's name. According to the script, I should only have to replace ".pimpworker" but nothing seems to work. No matter what I attempt to call the miner, my Ethermine Dashboard still reports pimpworker.

    In the beginning, I could live with this. However, as I continue to create additional miners running PIMP this has turned into a nuisance. I would really love to be able to see the individual hashrates for each miner, rather than their combined total hashrate.

    Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to PiMP OS!

    As for your question... Claymore uses two options to report a worker ID to a pool. (It really depends on what the pool wants to use.)

    The first location is exactly where you described. You can affix your worker ID to the end of your wallet address as shown in the example config's USER1= section.

    # ETH Ethermine EU (USER1 is ETH wallet dot workername)

    The second location is in the FLAGS= section (further down the file, just past all the example pools), specifically the -eworker <worker_ID> part.

    FLAGS=-allpools 1 -logfile /var/log/claymore.dual.log -logsmaxsize 100MB -eworker Pimpworker -tt 75 -tstop 90

    Setting these to the same value will ensure that the pool, no matter which one it wants, will always get the right <worker_ID>.
