Integration of Hiveon ETH pool and new features of the Hive OS web-interface

We have updated the web-interface of Hive OS. What’s new?

The most important update — Hiveon ETH pool is now integrated into the web-interface of Hive OS!

Now, instead of switching to the page of the pool, you can check all the essential information right in the dashboard of Hive OS:

  • Payouts;
  • Hashrate;
  • Shares of the pool (valid, stale and invalid);
  • Statistics;
  • Workers’ statuses (online/offline).

View video demonstration: external link

Integration of the pool is not the only update:

  • Now it is even easier for you to filter your devices — we added a filter by the firmware for GPUs and ASICs:

  • If you need to provide someone (for instance, your administrator) with a link to a particular worker, you can simply switch to that worker and click its name:

  • On the page of every GPU worker it is now possible to check the CPU temperature:

Besides, you can set up the threshold value of the CPU temperature in order to protect your devices from overheating:

Hiveon ETC pool has been integrated to Hive’s web interface!

The most important update — Hiveon ETC pool has been integrated to Hive OS’ web interface!
Here’s a video on all the newly implemented features.

You can now check on all essential information right from Hive’s dashboard — No longer needing to switch to the pool’s page.

You’ll always be aware of your pool income and payments. You get access to the following information:

  • The last payout (and date thereof);
  • The expected daily and weekly payouts;
  • Estimated earnings per day/week;
  • The total paid balance amount;
  • The total unpaid balance (including the % reached to payout);
  • A real-time graph of your income.

You’re also able to see the number of active workers here.

You can check the real-time poolside accepted hashrate:

You can also monitor the pool’s valid, stale and invalid shares (per day, week or month):

In case you mine two coins (ETC and ETH), you can switch between them with one click. You can also monitor the hashrate, payouts, energy consumption and number of workers for two coins at the same time:

What else?

Now you can do the following on Hive’s web-interface too:

  • Choose what type of messages to remove:

  • Change the order of miners when creating / editing a flight sheet. If there are two or more of them, you can do it by ordinary drag-and-drop:

  • Change the order of the repositories’ list in the farm’s advanced settings (also by drag-and-drop):

  • Select a lot of workers at once — to do this, press down the Shift button down and highlight to select all desired rigs:

And last but not least, you can now use the “pill” for the Nvidia 1080 rev 1 cards too.

Hive OS web-interface update: improved monitoring and new filters

Meet another update of the Hive OS web interface!

Now, right on the dashboard, you can also monitor the memory temperature for the AMD VEGA and NAVI cards. This will help to protect your devices from overheating and downtime, and you — from the loss of profit.

  • You can specify the threshold temperature values for memory and core separately. If you leave these fields empty, the default values will be applied after you click the Save button. They are 72℃ for the core and 90℃ for the memory:

  • When the specified value is exceeded, the temperature “turns” in the appropriate color so that you immediately notice overheating:

  • In the list of rigs (as well as in the list of cards inside the worker), the core and memory temperatures are displayed as a hint:

Apart from this, we added a new filter by miner to which tuning is applied. On the list such a miner will be marked with the color yellow — this will simplify the search process:

Autofan: improvements & new features

The Autofan module has been improved and new features have been added since the latest Linux GPU client updates ([email protected] and [email protected]).
New updates to the web interface bring these new options highlighted in red and orange squares below.

  • Target MEM TEMP
    This feature is only used by AMD Vega and Navi series cards.
    This rule is triggered if the GPU core temperature doesn’t exceed the set target temperature, in turn not allowing the memory temperature to exceed the set threshold.
    For example; When Navi series GPUs exceed memory temperatures of 104C, they start throttling. With this feature, you’ll be able to keep your cards at optimal temperatures.

  • Smart mode
    This mode changes the target temperature depending on the fan speed. If it’s very hot, the coolers don’t work 100% and keep a higher temperature. And vice versa, if it’s cold, the fan speed is a little higher so that there is airflow. The ratio is 1° for every 10% of the fan speed from 50%.

New Hive OS Statistics features

Great news! Hive OS statistics have been upgraded:

We added a graph for error messages and all the necessary filters:

  • All (all the messages)
  • Info (informational messages)
  • File (messages about BIOS downloaded from the card)
  • Danger (messages about critical errors)
  • Warning (messages with warnings)
  • Success (actions performed with no errors).

Now it will be much more convenient for you to work with messages — new tools make it easy to organize them.

  • Graphs are now also available in the Detail View mode. Thus, you can always check any messages in more detail. You will also be able to see the time period, when the messages were received:

  • A new tool was added — SMA (Simple Moving Average). By launching SMA, you will add one more line to the graph — smoothed, with average values:

  • We also added a zoom function — now you can view statistics graphs in great detail. This is especially useful for the Detail View, if the time difference between several messages is very small and they are located close to each other on the graph. Using zoom is very easy — just select an area and then move the slider at the bottom of the screen:

Also, now you can edit or delete the miner tuning directly from the launched flight sheet.

Hive OS Web Interface Update

The web interface of Hive OS became even more convenient:

  • New options of setting up the detailed view in the list of workers — select the data for output on your own:

For ASICs, you can configure the following data combinations: chips’ temperature + hashrate, boards’ temperature + hashrate, boards’ temperature + chips’ temperature.

The following combinations are available for GPU rigs: temperature + fan speed, temperature + hashrate, hashrate + fan speed.

You can also turn on coloring of temperature values ​​depending on how much the specified threshold is exceeded. Exceeding the temperature threshold by 1° is indicated in yellow. By 2° — in orange, and by 3° — in red. If you have not turned on coloring, the temperature will be marked in red at the moment the set threshold is reached. For example, if the threshold is 80°, the temperature will turn red already at 80° (and when coloring is on — at 83°).

  • Monitor the temperature of the boards and chips of each of your ASICs:

  • Set the target temperature not only for chips, but also for boards:

  • We added a new Telegram notification option — receive messages when the target board temperature is exceeded:

  • We have improved worker filters — now they are divided into sections for greater convenience. The selected filters are displayed when collapsed:

  • We also added DNS over HTTPS (DoH) — a protocol for performing DNS resolution over HTTPS. DoH improves user privacy and security by preventing interception and manipulation of DNS data.

Possible values:

  • Disabled — DNS server obtained via DHCP or manually specified is used.
  • Enabled for Hive — use DoH only for name resolution of Hive servers.
  • Enabled globally — used by DoH to resolve all names.

Web interface update of April 13, 2021: new functionality added

We’ve added new functionality with this web interface update:

  • GPU Tweakers
  • Core Clock Lock support for Nvidia

Please note that in order for these new functionalities work on your rig, you need at least Hive OS GPU client version v0.6-202 or later

GPU Tweakers

We’ve added the “GPU Tweakers” functionality to the OC panel, that’s designed to use special tools for fine-tuning your GPUs. This is a long-awaited feature of our users, especially for AMD Vega GPUs owners, because the first tool that we added to tweakers is AMDMemTweak.

Now you can add memory tweaks for your Vega GPUs in OC settings

We added typical settings to the tooltip and by clicking on it, it will be copied over to your settings

Hovering your mouse over it, enables you to view all GPU Tweakers setting

General overclock view/panel has changed slightly to a new look

Core Clock Lock support for Nvidia

The latest Nvidia graphics processors, Turing and Ampere, have a new core frequency locking funciton, allowing you to achieve better results in terms of stability and power consumption compared to controlling the core frequency through frequency offsets.
In fact, blocking the core frequency is setting the absolute value of the frequency

How it’s can be set in Hive OS?

Setting a value above 500 in the Core frequency field means setting the absolute value

Setting a negative value or less than 500 is the same as setting the frequency offset.

Example of applying Core Clock Locking


Thus, you can significantly reduce the power consumption of your rig without losing hashrate

You can try these values for locking Core Clock Frequency

We’ve added a new functionality with this web interface update:

  • New options for Nvidia OC.
  • New miner - BzMiner.
  • Favorite Farms and Workers.
  • “Create a new worker”'s new look.
  • Redesigned the drop-down list of workers.

New options for Nvidia Overclocking

New options added to Nvidia Overclocking. Force P0 state and Idle state. Both options require Hive Linux client [email protected] and higher. Please note that restarting the miner is required for the changes to take effect.

Using this option forcibly turns on the performance mode P0.
P0 is a fixed maximum power mode, note that it also raises the memory base clock by 400MHz, so keep this in mind when setting memory overclocking.
P2 is an adaptive power mode that can decrease and increase frequencies, which can lead to failures at the time of a sharp decrease/increase in load, for example, switching to a failover pool or regenerating the DAG file.
For mining versions of GPUs, setting the P0 mode is not needed, so this mode for them, in most cases is the default mode. GPUs designed for gaming work in P2 mode by default.

Enabling the “Reduce idle power consumption” option will significantly reduce power consumption during idle time (when mining is stopped).

Nvidias OC panel’s new look

Also added tooltips for some parameters and corrected a few terms.

New miner - BzMiner

New miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs added.
Currently miner supports ethash and etchash algorithms. Miner devfee is 0.5%.

Updating the web interface

We want you to be comfortable using Hive OS. Therefore, we cannot be stopped in the search for the most effective solutions! :rocket:

In this update, we have brought the following new features and improvements to life:

Major changes:

:zap: Dual mode for T-Rex miner
:zap: Integration of the new miner TeamBlackMiner

Other

:zap: Made minor improvements when creating a new rig / ASIC
:zap: Improved visual experience when working with lists of favorite farms / rigs

Further on, in more detail about the main changes.

Dual mode for T-Rex miner

Starting from the miner version v0.24.0, the dual mining feature has been added to the T-Rex miner.
What does this mean and how does it work? As you know, Nvidia began to block mining in ordinary game cards, which is reflected in a two-fold decrease in the efficiency of mining in relation to unblocked solutions. Miner developers are constantly improving their blocking bypass algorithms, but a significant part of the resources are still unavailable. In this regard, the developers of the T-Rex miner have created a special dual mining mode, which allows you to use the resources of the video card by 100% while mining two coins at the same time.
The following modes are available:

  • ETH + RVN (requires a video card with 8GB or more)
  • ETH + ERG (requires a video card with 8GB or more)
  • ETH + CFX (10GB or more video card required)

More info can be found here

Also, starting from version 0.24.2, it became possible to mine ZIL coin by switching from ETH mining during Zilliqa PoW window.

To make it easier for users to configure these modes, we updated the T-Rex miner setup form and added the output of the hash rate of the second algorithm to the dashboard.

Updated form for T-Rex miner settings

:hammer_and_wrench: In this web interface update we have added new features:

:zap: Added DanilaMiner integration
:zap: Added dual-mode setup and stats for lolMiner

Here’s a little more detail;

DanilaMiner Integration

This miner has been successfully integrated by the developers as a custom miner. The Hiveon team decided to support the project by adding built-in integration of this miner, which should make it even easier to set up, update and mine the TON coin.

lolMiner: dual-mode setup and statistics

The miner currently has several operational options that fall under the so-called dual-mode:

  • split-mining, where cards with 4Gb mine ETCs and cards with 6Gb or more mine ETH
  • switching to PoW Zilliqa (ZIL) at a time when all the main time is mining ETH or ETC

This will also allow you to add new dual modes, which will appear in future versions of the miner
