When I type start_mining, there is no visible indication that anything is happening. Can anyone help with with advice on how to see a visual indication that something is happening?

Note, balance says 0. Typing stop_mining says "Mining stopped in Daemon"

I am using a remote node with monero-wallet-cli.

In the following post Why do monerod and monero-wallet-cli have mine commands?, it says that the show_hr command can be used but this relies on monerod running which, given that I am using a remote node, it doesn't apply.

  • show_hr (heck try 'help' from the daemon) with CPU mining, wait at least 6 months to see if you got a jackpot winning lottery ticket. My advice is to NOT use the daemon miner and use a CPU miner and point to a pool. Been a while, but you need a fully local node and fully sync'd to mine from daemon. Can't point to a remote daemon. – Dave Jun 28 '18 at 19:34
  • @Dave It should be possible to mine locally using a Remote Node. See coinguides.org/remote-nodes-monero-wallet-gui-cli – James Jun 29 '18 at 9:58
  • Mining locally using a remote Node does NOT work. However, see @Dave comments in the accepted answer below. You can use ./monerod --offline – James Jul 2 '18 at 14:36

Check the daemon (monerod) logs. When the node is mining, it prints logs to show it's mining.

it says that the show_hr command can be used but this relies on monerod running which, given that I am using a remote node, it doesn't apply.

The mining is happening on the daemon monerod (remote or local) and show_hr will indeed show you your mining hashrate.

  • If I execute ./ monerod then it starts syncing the blockchain which I don't want to do as its currently 41GB and I don't have the space. How can I run monerod without syncing the blockchain? – James Jun 29 '18 at 9:36
  • ./monerod --offline – jtgrassie Jun 29 '18 at 12:00
  • ./monerod --offline (THIS WORKS!) – James Jul 2 '18 at 14:35
