Mining yields, and thus financial returns depend on how efficiently mining rigs are utilized. The key challenge is to monitor all of them 24/7 to ensure the optimal performance under the key operating criteria. This is true regardless of whether you have just a couple of rigs working in the back of your garage or you have hundred or more of these working in a dedicated farm. With a larger number of rigs in a farm, the monitoring challenge is naturally more demanding and can have also larger impact not only on the mining yield but also on the lifespan of the equipment.
EthMonitoring and EthControlThere are two programs that can help you monitor your rigs efficiently. These are run by the same app:
- EthMonitoring - offering extremely stable monitoring capacity high-performance mining rigs
- EthControl - providing tools for active portfolio management in mining farms running a large number of computers
EthMonitoring is developed to provide superior reliability in monitoring performance of mining rigs. EthMonitoring is compatible with the most commonly used softwares like Claymore Dual miner, CCMiner, EthMiner and more. Instant notifications about your rigs health status and overviews are also available remotely.
Running and controlling multiple rigs can be tricky and without specialized monitoring tools, it can consume a lot of resources to change a simple wallet or pool address. EthControl enables to change and update all the rigs in only a few clicks. EthControl is currently available only for Windows miners. EthMonitoring is available for both Linux and Windows. EthControl for Linux will be released in the near term.
EthMonitoring provides data and visualizes in graph form the following key parameters:
- Hashrate (mh/s, sol/s)
- Power consumption;
- Revenue (per rig and total)
- Profit (per rig and total)
The presentation of mining rigs information in a mobile app is focused and simple to follow for users at all levels. Also, switching between different pools is fast and easy, allowing to adjust portfolio allocations between coins, responding to changes on the market. Notifications are delivered instantly in real time. There are various sound alarm options available to customise different events’ notifications for better recognition.
