XMRig High performance, open source, cross platform RandomX, CryptoNight and Argon2 CPU/GPU miner, with official support for Windows.

Mining backends

  • CPU (x64/x86/ARM)
  • OpenCL for AMD GPUs.
  • CUDA for NVIDIA GPUs via external CUDA plugin.



  • Binary releases:
  • Git tree:


The preferred way to configure the miner is the JSON config file as it is more flexible and human friendly. The command line interface does not cover all features, such as mining profiles for different algorithms. Important options can be changed during runtime without miner restart by editing the config file or executing API calls.

Command line options

“`Network: -o, –url=URL URL of mining server -a, –algo=ALGO mining algorithm –coin=COIN specify coin instead of algorithm -u, –user=USERNAME username for mining server -p, –pass=PASSWORD password for mining server -O, –userpass=U:P username:password pair for mining server -k, –keepalive send keepalived packet for prevent timeout (needs pool support) –nicehash enable support –rig-id=ID rig identifier for pool-side statistics (needs pool support) –tls enable SSL/TLS support (needs pool support) –tls-fingerprint=HEX pool TLS certificate fingerprint for strict certificate pinning –daemon use daemon RPC instead of pool for solo mining –daemon-poll-interval=N daemon poll interval in milliseconds (default: 1000) -r, –retries=N number of times to retry before switch to backup server (default: 5) -R, –retry-pause=N time to pause between retries (default: 5) –user-agent set custom user-agent string for pool –donate-level=N donate level, default 5%% (5 minutes in 100 minutes) –donate-over-proxy=N control donate over xmrig-proxy feature

CPU backend: –no-cpu disable CPU mining backend -t, –threads=N number of CPU threads -v, –av=N algorithm variation, 0 auto select –cpu-affinity set process affinity to CPU core(s), mask 0x3 for cores 0 and 1 –cpu-priority set process priority (0 idle, 2 normal to 5 highest) –cpu-max-threads-hint=N maximum CPU threads count (in percentage) hint for autoconfig –cpu-memory-pool=N number of 2 MB pages for persistent memory pool, -1 (auto), 0 (disable) –no-huge-pages disable huge pages support –asm=ASM ASM optimizations, possible values: auto, none, intel, ryzen, bulldozer –randomx-init=N threads count to initialize RandomX dataset –randomx-no-numa disable NUMA support for RandomX

API: –api-worker-id=ID custom worker-id for API –api-id=ID custom instance ID for API –http-host=HOST bind host for HTTP API (default: –http-port=N bind port for HTTP API –http-access-token=T access token for HTTP API –http-no-restricted enable full remote access to HTTP API (only if access token set)

OpenCL backend: –opencl enable OpenCL mining backend –opencl-devices=N comma separated list of OpenCL devices to use –opencl-platform=N OpenCL platform index or name –opencl-loader=PATH path to OpenCL-ICD-Loader (OpenCL.dll or –opencl-no-cache disable OpenCL cache –print-platforms print available OpenCL platforms and exit

CUDA backend: –cuda enable CUDA mining backend –cuda-loader=PATH path to CUDA plugin (xmrig-cuda.dll or –cuda-devices=N comma separated list of CUDA devices to use –cuda-bfactor-hint=N bfactor hint for autoconfig (0-12) –cuda-bsleep-hint=N bsleep hint for autoconfig –no-nvml disable NVML (NVIDIA Management Library) support

Logging: -S, –syslog use system log for output messages -l, –log-file=FILE log all output to a file –print-time=N print hashrate report every N seconds –health-print-time=N print health report every N seconds –no-color disable colored output

Misc: -c, –config=FILE load a JSON-format configuration file -B, –background run the miner in the background -V, –version output version information and exit -h, –help display this help and exit –dry-run test configuration and exit –export-topology export hwloc topology to a XML file and exit“`


  • Default donation 5% (5 minutes in 100 minutes) can be reduced to 1% via option donate-level or disabled in source code.
