Just for fun, spun up 8 of the tiny VPS droplets running Ubuntu 16.04 from digital ocean.

I had already successfully setup a Monero XMR Pool that was built with node.js from zone117x.

I would like to be able to track the stats for each worker, but as far as I know I can't set a worker name with xmr-stak-cpu like other miners

Ex: -u moneroaddresshere.WORKERNAME

Is there anyway for me to do this with xmr-stak-cpu? There's no point making a bunch of different monero wallets if the pool is run by me, I just want to see the differences in each VPS's performance


Append it after your payment address with a +


"wallet_address" : "YOUR_ADDRESS+WORKER_NAME"

most stratum pools should recognize this.

  • Did not work for me. Broke login. Pool is Monero Ocean, in case it matters.

  • Check out monero ocean's FAQ: moneroocean.stream/#/help/faq There it says that their worker "stop sign" is a "." to be put after your address. Or (and this works also for many other pools / crypro miners) to put your worker name in your miner's password section <miner_name>:<password>.

  • @catafish, thx. I stumbled on the answer. For monero ocean it's the latter suggestion - <miner_name>:<password>. Thanks for replying.
