Default Anyone cloud mine cryptonight algo on VPS? I Need advice...

I have a good amount of VPS's running VPN's and would like to mine XMR (cryptonight algo) with CPU with a nice value of 19 to give the VPN priority. Does anyone have a tutorial you can point me to. Right now I'm thinking of running XMR STAK CPU on CENTOS 6 since CENTOS is what I have running on all my servers already...

Do you have to have a separate cloud mining server set up for each VPN?

I have about 15 VPS's, each with a allotted CPU. It'll be a real slow trickle of hashes but the servers arent used for anything besides the VPN.

I'll set the nice value to 19 on the mining software and -20 on the VPN to give the VPN priority with the cpu.

I also have to figure out how screen works...

It looks like XMR-STAK 2.1.0 is the best miner for this set up.

Im about to SSH into this Samsung Galaxy S4 I root and installed Linux on to test it out before I start messing with my production servers.

Edit: that idea failed. some of the packages needed to compile are x64 only and not available for arm7 version of CentOS

I got this server mining... So far the highest hash rate I've got is 2.5h/s.... My GPU's get 700h/s each...

I have no idea how I set this thing up... It's Linux and nothing was like the instructions said. The files I needed were named different and in different locations than in the instructions... But I got it

Aspkin, this would be a good lick for you, you probably have too many servers to even set up tho...

cloud mining is almost dead ,i was mining in the speed of 200 kh/s

but once the network owner finds out you are completely screwed you will lose everything instead of that better buy some rigs and start mining
ps) i have lost around $30k-40k doing cloud mining

You were sued for $30-$40k cloud mining off a VPS? Isn't it free to mine?

Don't think he meant "sued", more like "caught". And yes it IS free to mine, but people might not have the same sentiment when your using up there servers cpu power for your personal gain

After testing for a few days... This isn't a viable concept. I thought maybe I could get these servers I have hosting my VPN's to pay for themselves, but it isnt enough hashes to even justify using the bandwidth.

@xenix

You mean a rig like this?


7x Zotac GTX 1070 AMP Extreme + 2x Zotac GTX 1070 ti AMP Edition

You have a 1300w and 1600w PSU for that? How do you connect them?

x2 EVGA 1000w Supernova G2's... Motherboard is a ASUS Z270-A with 7 PCIE slots. Then I use the two M.2 Slots with a M.2 to PICE adapter for the 8th and 9th card.

Nice, did you custom build that rig case or buy it like that?

Do the fans really provide enough cooling no matter how much you OC the cards?

No... I got the case off eBay. Its the one for 8 cards but I moved the cards closer together and used zipties to get the extra card in there. The fans dont do much but keep the air moving. The fans are cheap Roswell fans I got a 4pk of for like 15$ off amazon and all 7 of them combined only use 10 watts. The GPU's I have, Zotac 1070's stay cooler than most cards. They havent got above 63C so the external fans on the case arent really needed, temp isnt a facter when overclocking these cards. The Zotac 1070 AMP Extremes can take a maximum overclock setting with the power set at 50-52% and the 1070 ti's power set at 65% with no effect on hash rate.

If I were to get the ASUS 19 card mining expert mother board. I'm pretty sure I could get 12-13 1070 ti's in this case. But then I would need high power external fans because the cards would be so close together.

I should be getting another one of those cases and two Zotac 1070ti's in the mail today to begin my second rig. I already have the mother board (another Z270-A), PSU's (EVGA 1000w G2's), CPU (Intel G4400), 120gb SSD, and 8gb memory stick. I was planning on adding 3 cards a month then buying the ASUS Mining Expert 19 PCIE slot mother board to get at least 12 1070ti's in this one. 21 cards would put me at 700M/h. So rig #3 will put me well over 1G/h.

This is what I've been doing with the PP $ I can't withdraw...

1,000Kh/s = 1Mh/s You must have meant 100Mh/s... Which you would need 3 GTX 1070 Ti's for. They get 33-34Mh/s per card overclocked and only use 110-120 watts of power each.
Which would net you $100 a week at current prices mining ETH....

Approx cost is <$2k for 3 GPU rig. My 9 card rig cost me >$5k

cards = $449 x 3= $1,347
mother board = $150
1 EVAG 1000w G2 PSU = $175
8gb Memory = $90
Intel G-44 CPU = $50
x3 Risers = $30
120gb ssd = $75

Your better off going with a 1070. They have 8gb of memory and will be able to mine for years to come. ETH's Dag file is 3gb right now. Soon the 4gb GPU's like the GTX 1050 and 4gb 1060 will not work any more for ETH because they will not have enough memory.

Also if every thing goes to hell you will have a easier time reselling a 1070 to a gamer.


I'd go for the Zotac GTX 1070 Ti mini for $449. Zotac>EVGA>Gigabyte is the order of best brands. You will get the best hash rate to power ratio off the GTX 1070 Ti. Nvidia is easier to set up than AMD. Nvidia works straight out the box and are easy to over clock.

In all reality you will not want to stop buying GPU's once you start so your best bet is to get the ASUS B250 mining expert 19 PCIe slot mother board off rip. That way you can add up to 13 GPU's in Windows on that board. Its also cheaper to add more GPU's than buy every thing else you'd need to make another rig.

You need 8GB of DDR4 Memory.

At least a dual core Intel Pentium G-4400 CPU. (you can mine Monero or Electronium (cryptonight algo) off CPU so you could think about getting a 4.1GHz I3 possessor too if its worth it to you) I have the G-4400 and am mining Electronium with my CPU's on my 2 rigs. I'm making about 100 ETN a month. ETN is at 8 cents at current price but its new and could easily see $1 this year. A I3 prossessor with 4 cores and 6mb of catche would mine better but its 3x the price of a dual core G-44.

Your also going to want to be able to remote access into your rig with Teamviewer or VNC and that needs to run off the onboard video not GPU. I have to set my Cryptonight miner to only use 1 core of my dual core G-44 because of this.

For power I would go with EVGA. Dont get Corsair... Desktop PSU's arent made to run 24/7 and EVGA makes a better PSU. I would get the 1000w EVGA G2 or G3. They come with 6 VGA power rails so you could power x6 8 pin or dual 8 pin cards per PSU. (Zotac 1070Ti mini is a single 8 pin card) (AMP edition and AMP extreme are dual 8 pin cards) For dual 8 pin cards you would need a 8 pin to dual 8pin Y-splitter. You could go with a server PSU that is made to run 24/7 but they don't have the 5 year manufacturer warranty that EVGA power supplies have. You only want to use 2/3 of max power of the PSU. So if you had x2 EVGA 1000w G2's = 2000w you wouldnt want to run them at more than 1500w 24/7.

You also have to think about the power from the wall. Most outlets are only 15amps. You can only run one 12 GPU rig off a 15a breaker so you would need to put each rig in a different room or per fuse box breaker.

I think that covers it. If you needed something else ask.

I'm working on my second rig. Got 2 Zotac GTX 1070 Ti's now but going to add 10 more to make a 12 card rig. I have the funds to buy 4 more Zotac 1070 Ti's but every where is sold out for retail $469. Only resellers have cards now. Hopefully I will be able to get the cards in two weeks when one of my suppliers restocks, but they took pre orders so not sure if I can get them.

I'm making $340 a week right now off those rigs. ETH $1000 🚀🚀🚀📈🌛
Minus $100 a month for power. In the month of Dec. I used 925.5kWh @ $0.11

yep, but those fans are pushing air so its blowing hot air out that door into the hallway. Were I live in the South East U.S. a lot of people have never even seen snow in their life time. So it doesn't get much colder than 45 degrees. Summer will be a real b1tch...
