:uk: :man_astronaut: WEB INTERFACE UPDATE 06 May 2019 :man_astronaut:

Force Algo Switch added to the Overclocking Panel

Added the option to disable overclock switching based on the algorithm.
Added the ability to apply overclock settings from the list.


New items added to the Worker Overview Page.

Functionality enhancement by adding new elements such as logic filters, workers pending update filter and pages to the worker list.

Added AND / OR / NOT logic filtering for workers

Set up smarter filters with the help of operands such as AND / OR / NOT.

Added a filter for workers pending update

With this filter, users can select workers that can be updated to the latest version of the client.

Added paging to workers list

Users with a large number of workers are now able to view their worker list through a paging system. The number of workers per page can be set from 25 to 5000.


Added new Worker options header to the control panel.

Next to disabling the GUI on boot, both Maintenance mode and Push interval options were added.
Push interval allows you to change the time interval between sending statistics to the server. It changes the responsiveness of the server and traffic generated by the rig. This option may be of interest to users with a prepaid volume of Internet traffic.
Maintenance mode - this mode is designed for worker maintenance. Enabling this will disable miner launching, applying OCs, etc. This mode is exceptionally handy for flashing Nvidia cards, for example.


New miner: miniZ

Added miniZ miner. miniZ is a fast and friendly Equihash 144/5, 150/5, 192/7, 96/5 CUDA miner.


Tags order control

Enhanced tags by adding order control.


New balance refill method

Added a quicker and easier payment method. You generate an address in preferred crypto and send your crypto directly to this address when you need to fill your balance.


Nvidia flash VBIOS tool

Added the ability to flash Nvidia cards from the Hive OS Linux client.
Please make sure that the BIOS version corresponds to your video card model, whether this operation is actually beneficial for your card(s) and, it goes without saying, that you know exactly what you’re doing.
You could, otherwise, potentially “brick” your card, with a possible warranty void making recovery only being possible at a certified service center or only with special equipment.
The Hive OS team isn’t responsible for any potentially negative results of this operation (equipment failure, degradation, etc.)


List of Popular Overclocks

We’re sure some of you might remember this functionality back in the good ol’ Hive 1.0 days, right? Well, without further ado, we (re)present it back to Hive 2.0 in a new, revised and most of all, sexy form.
Here, you’ll find popular OC settings amongst users, for numerous algos and cards.


New GPU managing tool - GPU Hub

This is our new ultimate feature; GPU Hub.
By using this feature you can create your own repository of VBIOS at Hive cloud, use mass flashing for whole rigs or farms and much more.

Web interface OC hotfix

A web interface hotfix has been released that fixes errors with overclocking settings.
Added overclocking editing button for the entire rig (former behavior).
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5

Overclocking buttons opposite the card change only the individual settings of that card.


#8

:man_astronaut: WEB INTERFACE UPDATE 25 May 2019 :man_astronaut:

RXboost feature added

The new REF, Refresh Rate field was added to the AMD OC settings tab. This parameter allows you to apply the so-called rxboost tweak. Read more here


The default value is applied when the Refresh Rate field is left blank.
To apply the same value to all cards, enter it once. To apply different REF values to multiple cards, separate each entered value by a space.

New startup option for ASIC

Sets initial voltage and core frequency for reducing power usage on tuning start.

Detailed activity log for “config applied” event

More details added in rig activity, users are now able to see what changed, be it OC or Flight Sheet.

Improved paging support

Added the function to switch to a specific page
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5
Optimized page navigation with filters and sorting. Fixed search for workers on farms.

#9

:man_astronaut: WEB INTERFACE UPDATE June 04, 2019 :man_astronaut:

Added Discord bot

Under your account settings in section Notifications, you can find a new channel - Discord
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5
So now you can use an alternative notification channel. Follow the instructions to setup Discord bot.

Updated Schedules

Not so long ago, “Schedules” feature was added for testing. Obvious errors were fixed and functionality was expanded.
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5
You can create your own plan to mine what and when.
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5
A detailed scheduler guide will be shared soon.

Added Error filters to worker list

New error filters were added
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5
New error filters are; overheated, overloaded


and more - low accepted share ratio, missing GPUs/boards, zero hash rate, without flight sheets

Other minor fixes

  • Updated translations (ru,eng)
#10

:man_astronaut: WEB INTERFACE UPDATE June 09, 2019 :man_astronaut:

Sushi miner support

With this update we added support for Sushi miner from Sushipool.
Sushi miner has two instances - for CUDA and for OpenCL platforms designed for mining Nimiq
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5

Watchdog by LA and GPU lost detection

New triggers have been added to the Hive software watchdog.
by LA (stands for “load averages”) and GPU lost detection.


LA, under normal conditions, should not exceed the number of processor cores * 2.
Very high LA in many cases may indicate the presence on the rig of hardware problems, driver fail, etc. So our users now can set this trigger to reboot rig by setting value in Reboot if LA >=.
Also as additional trigger you can use Reboot if GPU is offline which reboot rig if GPU driver stop responding.

Delay on miner start

As there may potentially be high levels of system load during the OS boot on some systems, adding the miner start to the mix, may cause the system to “hang”. With this addition to the worker options, a delay can be set before the miner start triggers, helping reduce the likelihood of such hangs.

:man_astronaut: WEB INTERFACE UPDATE June 24, 2019 :man_astronaut:

Major changes in this update

  • Power consumption statistics
  • Active schedule indication
  • Added “Go to … page” to workers and cards list
  • GPU Hub improvement

Power consumption statistics

Now you can see your power consumption cost on HiveOS dashboard
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5
Also there is the new graph of power consumption at “Stats” menu.


And of course to proper cost of power consumption you need enter price for electricity, enter some compensation for other hardware or power efficiency of PSU.

Compensation for other hardware or power efficiency of PSU can be entered as for farm (in Farm settings) and as for worker individually (in Worker settings)

Active schedule indication

To worker’s page if there is exists active schedule added indication of schedule.


Added “Go to … page” to worker and cards list

To worker list and cards list (GPU Hub) added ability “Go to … page” to quickly jump to the desired page
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5

GPU Hub improvement

Downloadable BIOS from the video card can be immediately added to the storage
