XMR-Stak-Nvidia miner running in docker

XMR-Stak-Nvidia miner running in docker

XMR-Stak is a universal Stratum pool miner. This is the NVIDIA GPU mining version; there is also an AMD GPU version, and a CPU version.

Docker® containers are often used to seamlessly deploy CPU-based applications on multiple machines. But Docker Engine does not natively support NVIDIA GPUs with containers.

I have dockerized the Nvidia GPU-mining version, so it is now running in nvidia-docker.

Containerizing GPU applications provides several benefits, among them:

  • Reproducible builds
  • Ease of deployment
  • Isolation of individual devices
  • Run across heterogeneous driver/toolkit environments
  • Requires only the NVIDIA driver to be installed
  • Enables “fire and forget” GPU applications
  • Facilitate collaboration
