Hi AION fellows,
I would like to present you my github repo where I created a docker-compose setup for mining AION tokens on the testnet using Docker containers.
You can find the github repo at: https://github.com/sh39sxn/mining-aion-coins
You find the prebuild Docker Containers on Docker Hub:
Solo mining pool: https://hub.docker.com/r/sh39sxn/aion-solo-mining-pool/
CPU Aionminer: https://hub.docker.com/r/sh39sxn/aion-miner-gpu/
GPU SmartMiner: https://hub.docker.com/r/sh39sxn/aion-smartminer/
GPU Aionminer: https://hub.docker.com/r/sh39sxn/aion-miner-cpu/
If you have installed Docker and docker-compose on your host machine you only have to run “docker-compose up” and it will create a whole mining environment (4 Containers: solo mining pool, kernel, redis, cpu miner)
You can also just use/start one of the containers, e.g. the Kernel Container in order to use it with your GPU miner. The corresponding ports are opened to localhost.
At the moment I only configured a Container for mining tokens using CPU but I can extend it mining tokens with GPUs.
It was a lot of work and I hope it will help some of you mining tokens.
In my opinion using docker has many advantages like easier deployments etc. Just throw the old container away and start a new one if there is a new release or something is broken.
I would like to get your feedback
