Anyone who wishes to share thier mining information should be careful not to post private information like passwords when doing so.

Good point let me add it on top as warning.

Is this good performance?

It looks like you are running on a single thread, add genproclimit=4 (change the number to your number of processors) to your zcash.conf file. And also add equihashsolver=tromp you should see a 10x increase at least.

Thanks Shawn :+1:, i will give it a try

Is there something else I need to check/configure to be sure that it's doing something?
