System Changelog and News

:rocket: WEB INTERFACE UPDATE August 19, 2019 :rocket:

Major changes in this update:

  • autotags
  • Multi algo wallets for multipools
  • overall farms statistics
  • marking errors in ASICs
  • new merge overclock algorithm
  • display of workers without flight sheets
  • display autofan enabled workers
  • new notifications to messengers
  • other small fixes and improvements

Autotags

We present a new feature - Autotags. How does it works?
When you create a farm, you can enable the Autotags feature and when doing so, all workers inside a farm will be tagged automatically. Rigs are tagged by GPU information and ASICs by model name.
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5

You can also find this option in farm settings


or in worker settiings

Multi algo wallets for multipools

Another long-awaited feature is a general wallet for multipools such as Nicehash, Zpool, Zergpool, MPH and others where the same address is used for different algorithms (usually BTC).
For example, Nicehash. If you mine on Nicehash, you have one BTC wallet, but depending on the profit shift, you’ll be switching between different nicehash pools. Before this update, you had to create a wallet for each Nicehash supported algorithm you mine on. Now, this is no longer needed.
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5

Major changes in this update:

  • Gminer dual mode
  • Maintenance mode w/o drivers

Gminer dual mode

Starting with v1.75, Gminer began supporting dual mode (currently ethash as primary algorithm and eaglesong as secondary). We have added this feature to the interface.
Setup your Flight Sheet. Select coins, wallets and pools for main and dual coin.


Check miner settings, set dual balance (dual intensity)

Start miner and check results.

Catch your profit!

Maintenance mode w/o drivers

Maintenance mode has been extended with a new mode - maintenance mode without loading drivers.
This mode may be needed for very difficult situations with video cards, for example, unbricking after an unsuccessful BIOS flashing.

:rocket: WEB INTERFACE UPDATE November 28, 2019 :rocket:

Major changes in this update:

  • NoncerPro Kadena Miner
  • Sorting farms by tags

NoncerPro Kadena Miner

We’ve added a new GPU miner for mining KDA / Kadena - NoncerPro Kadena GPU Miner.

… and on AMD cards too

Sorting farms by tags

We’ve added sorting by tags for farms. It’s a small improvement for big bosses )

:rocket: WEB INTERFACE UPDATE December 21, 2019 :rocket:

Major changes in this update:

  • NhEqMiner VerusHash
  • Improved hashrate watchdog
  • Schedules: hourly recurrence

NhEqMiner VerusHash

We’ve added a new CPU miner to mine VRSC / Verus coin - NhEqMiner VerusHash
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5
Example Miner settings:


Miner in action:

Improved hashrate watchdog

We’ve added new functionality to hashrate watchdog. You can now choose between hashrate reported by miner or specific algo.
Hashrate watchdog by miner was implemented a long time ago.


Using switch “Watchdog mode” you can switch between modes - “Miners” or “Algos”

Since most mining software support multiple algorithms, hashrate watchdog by miner was not universal.
To rectify this, we’ve added hashrate watchdog based on specific algorithm to improve hashrate watchdog


Choose algorithm and put estimated hashrate for this worker for the algorithm in question

Schedules: Hourly recurrence

We’ve added new unit of recurrence for Schedules - Hourly.

So now you can plan your action every N hour(s)

Billing Improvements & Fixes :moneybag:

:gift: Improvements

Added payouts statistics from Hiveon pool for Hive OS usage.

The countdown “5 days before farm locks” now starts from $1 debt.

To avoid annoying outages, we made it possible to activate the countdown to blocking the farm only if the debt exceeds $1

CPU-only rigs only $0,3/mo per rig

With RandomX, VerusHash, YesPower and some other algorithms now CPU- mining back!
Some guys bought a lot of used servers from HP, Dell, IBM and so on with Xeon, Opteron, etc on board
We provide our system for CPU mining on such devices at a very attractive price.
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5
We’re ready to present our special tariff for CPU-only rigs for only $0.30/mo per rig
CPU rig - it’s PC without modern GPU’s for mining. Standard conditions applicable: up to 4 for free and starting from 5th rig $0.30/mo per each rig

:pill: Billing Fixes

All charges that were made on free rigs while switching to Hiveon pool will be reverted until January 25th.

Those charges that you keep in the web interface at present, until 01/25/20 will be deducted provided that your rigs satisfy the conditions for free (mining Ethereum on our Hiveon pool or mining other coins anywhere).
%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5

If your rigs satisfy the conditions for free, then you should not worry and repay these charges yourself - they will be canceled.

All incorrect charges will be refunded and marked in your account.

Updated AMD GPUs OC dialogue

For best AMD GPUs overclocking experience especially for new AMD GPUs generation cards such as Vega and Navi we’re added new fields to AMD OC dialogue such as VDDCI (memory controller interface voltage), MVDD (memory chips voltage) and Power Limit (allows you to limit the power used by the core).

Memory controller interface VDDCI and memory chips voltage MVDD sets in mV and currently applicable only for Navi family cards.
The default value for VDDCI is 850 mV. The permissible range is 750-850 mV.
The default value for MVDD is 1350 mV. The permissible range is 1250-1350 mV.
:warning: Use this parameters only if you understand what you are doing otherwise you can get a very unstable system.

Power Limit (PL) sets in Watts and allows you to limit the power used by the core graphics card.
In most cases, AMD cards are not required if the frequency and core voltage are set.
Currently applicable only to Vega and Navi GPUs family

Hive OS web interface updates, 17.06.2020

What’s new?

  • A wide selection of 2.0 firmware settings for ASIC Antminers of the 17th series: set up frequencies, voltage, critical temperatures, automatic switching of the profiles, etc. Turn on the chips and boards protection against short circuit — it can be caused by manufacturing defects.

  • Filter devices by the currently used flight sheet:

  • Downgrade the Hive OS version for ASICs:

When selecting a version, you can also see what functions will become unavailable after the downgrade:

  • In Schedules you can select a timezone that will be used for automatic execution of the required task:

Do not forget to check the time of the next operation of Scheduler:

  • Now you can receive notifications about the “loss” of GPU or board directly to the Telegram bot — you will miss nothing!

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 (0.6-149@200722 and 0.6-150@200729).
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%.
