Awesome Miner is compatible with all standard compliant ASIC miners, which includes almost every popular ASIC miner on the market. All Antminers are supported, including S7, S9, L3, L3+, R4, T9 and D3. Antminer D3 is supported from Awesome Miner Four.0.Two.

Other ASIC’s miners supported includes, but isn’t limited to: iBeLink, Avalon 721 / 741, Innosilicon A2 and Baikal. One limitation on the Baikal miner is that switch of both pool and algorithm overheen the management interface (API) isn’t supported. This limitation is not te Awesome Miner, but ter the Baikal miner itself.

Is profit switching supported for my miner?

Profit switching is supported on ASIC mining, GPU and CPU mining. Learn more about Profit Switching

Can I monitor the mining from my clever phone or laptop?

To get effortless access to monitoring information at any time using any device, the Awesome Miner Cloud Services can be used, where Awesome Miner will be pushing monitoring statistics to the cloud. The common mining operations like switching pool and commencing or stopping a miner are also supported via the cloud web interface.

No firewall configuration is required to use Cloud Services.

Is the pool Prohashing supported?

Awesome Miner itself can be used with any mining pool.

To display juist profit information and use the profit switcher, Awesome Miner vereiste know the current profitability of the pool, and not all pools and coins have integrated support for this. Learn more about supported sources for profit information.

Prohashing is very special spil it uses the password field to specify algorithm information, and the Pool URL is always “prohashing.com:3333” no matter of what is being mined. Because of this special vormgeving of prohashing, it’s not possible for any software to look at the Pool URL and see which coin or algorithm is being mined – all of them look identical. This is a major drawback te the vormgeving of prohashing and it will for that reason never be supported with profit information from Awesome Miner.

Is EthOS supported?

EthOS is Linux based and uses the Claymore Ethereum miner. Awesome Miner can connect to any Claymore Ethereum miner spil an Outward Miner if the API of the Claymore Ethereum miner is enabled.

To enable the API of Claymore Ethereum miner, make sure the mining process on EthOS is embarked with the instruction line argument: -mport 3333

Is my operating system supported?

Getting began

How do I get embarked with my Antminer or other ASIC miners?

The very first step is to add them spil Outward Miners ter Awesome Miner. Go after the guide about adding Outward Miners. The guide describes both how to add a single miner and how to scan the network for all miners.

By default, Antminers are configured with Restricted API access, which only makes it possible to monitor the mining statistics, but not performing operations like switching pool. Awesome Miner can help with configuring your Antminers to run with Privileged API access instead. See Configure privileged API access for Antminer

Other ASIC miners have similar concepts for API access, where the API configuration voorwaarde be defined to permit Awesome Miner to connect. On Avalon miners, the settings can be found te the configuration interface via: Status -> CGMiner Configuration.

For general information about API access configuration for miners, see Enable API access on ASIC miners

How do I get began with GPU mining?

Use the concept of Managed Miners, where the mining process is initiated, monitored and fully managed by Awesome Miner.

To only run mining on the laptop where Awesome Miner is running, no extra software is required. To run mining on remote computers, Awesome Miner Remote Tuut voorwaarde be installed on all the remote computers.

Awesome Miner Remote Tuut provides very few configuration parameters and almost no user interface. The Awesome Miner main application is always used to setup miners, pools and all other configuration. Te Awesome Miner a Managed Miner can be defined to either run locally on the same laptop spil the Awesome Miner application, or run on a remote laptop that runs Remote Juut.

How do I monitor my miners located on a remote webpagina?

Awesome Miner requires a standard TCP/IP network connection te order to access the miners. If the miners are located on a remote webpagina, the preferred solution is to setup a VPN network. Albeit it’s possible to not use VPN and simply configure a router for port forwarding, it’s not considered a good solution from a security point of view.

Another solution is to have Awesome Miner running on the remote webpagina and access it via Remote Desktop. To get effortless access to monitoring information at any time using any device, the Awesome Miner Cloud Services can be used, where Awesome Miner will be pushing monitoring statistics to the cloud.

Configuration

How do I liquidate miners and pools?

Te the Options dialog, the miners can be found te either Managed Miners or Outer Miners section. The pools can be found ter the Pools section. From thesis configuration sections, miners and pools can be added, modified and liquidated.

How to switch the default pools that my Antminers revert to after reboot?

Antminers have Trio default pools defined, and the behavior of Antminers is to revert back to thesis pools when a hard reboot is made. When switching the current pool where the Antminer is mining, the default pools are not switched.

Awesome Miner can configure the default pools spil well. Select one or many Antminers and use the toolbar Implements -> Antminer -> Default Pools, to define the Trio default pools.

How do I use my custom-made mining software with Awesome Miner?

The Managed Software feature can also be used to define your own mining software. One screenplay is that Awesome Miner includes a specific version of Ccminer, but you want to use another edition of Ccminer. By using the Managed Software feature it’s possible to specify custom-made algorithm support for this miner and the required instruction line arguments required to launch it.

How do I configure Ethereum Dual mining?
How do I add and configure my pool ter Awesome Miner?

The primary source of information is the web webpagina for the mining pool itself. Information like URL and how to specify Worker name is of most importance. Some mining algorithms also uses the concept of Wallets, that may have to be specified if required by the pool.

Pools can be added via the Add Pool button te the toolbar of Awesome Miner. To edit or eliminate a pool, use the Options dialog, Pools section.

See Mining pool configuration for information how to configure pools.

How can I see coin and profit information te the list of all miners?
How can I switch inbetween different configurations for Managed Miners?
What is the best practice for benchmarking GPU’s?

The benchmarking is performed on a single GPU at a time, and if all GPU’s are identical, there is no need to benchmark more than one.

It’s recommended to define hashrates based on what a single GPU can perform. To display profit information for a finish mining rekentuig, use the Group profiles te Options dialog, Profit profile section. A Group profile can define how many of each GPU (represented by a Profit profile) the system has. See Benchmark of algorithm hashrates for more details.

How do I disable a GPU from mining?

Awesome Miner doesn’t have any built-in feature to do this. The individual mining software used (Ccminer, Claymore miner) all have their own parameters to configure this, but the GPU order is not always the same across them. This makes it difficult for Awesome Miner to know which GPU to disable te general. Please refer to the documentation of the mining software for details about instruction line parameters.

How to commence a miner automatically after reboot?

There is a check opbergruimte to enable automaat embark te the Properties dialog for both Managed Miners and Managed Profit Miners.

The Properties can either be access via right clicking on the miner ter the list of miners, or via Options dialog, Managed Miners section.

General

Is the license vanaf GPU or vanaf rekentuig?

The license defines how many mining processes (e.g. Cgminer, Claymore Miner) that can be ready and monitored.

For ASIC miners like Antminers, one miner will consume one license.

GPU mining: Te most cases one license is consumed vanaf mining laptop, spil long spil only once example of the mining software (e.g. Ccminer, Claymore Miner) is running. Te screenplays where a single mining laptop is running numerous mining software, for example Claymore Miner is running on Trio GPU’s and Ccminer is running on another Trio GPU’s, there will be a total of two licenses consumed. If CPU mining is running on the same laptop, an extra license for the CPU mining software will be consumed spil well.

How can I get access to the development versions of Awesome Miner?

Development versions are intended for users that want to attempt the latest features before they are made available te the official releases. Development versions are not intended to be deployed at large scale spil they have not bot tested spil much spil the official releases.

The get access to development versions, open the Options dialog ter Awesome Miner. Ter the General section, enable Check for development versions. Then go to the Menukaart and click Check for updates

Where is my payouts from the mining?

Awesome Miner is not a mining pool. Awesome Miner is not responsible for any payouts from the mining operations.

For questions about payouts from mining pools, please refer to the web webpagina for the mining pool being used. Please note that the frequency of the payouts are also specific for each mining pool.

Can I trust this software?

Yes. Awesome Miner doesn’t contain any virus, spyware or adware.

Since the launch te 2014, Awesome Miner has bot adopted by many users running both petite scale and large scale mining operations. Awesome Miner is developed by the Swedish software company IntelliBreeze Software AB.

Users have bot discussing Awesome Miner for more than three years ter the official BitcoinTalk thread for Awesome Miner, making Awesome Miner a well known solution for management and monitoring of mining operations.

Troubleshooting

My GPU mining software fails to begin

Awesome Miner is automatically downloading and kicking off mining software like Claymore Ethereum miner and Ccminer my default. Some security software and anti-virus software may prevent this operation and simply liquidate the downloaded software.

On possible solution is to specify the folders where Awesome Miner downloads the mining software spil exceptions. How this is configured depends on the security software being used. Awesome Miner main application downloads software to the folder:

Awesome Miner Remote Smeris downlods software to the folder:

An alternative is to by hand download the mining software, and open the Properties of the Managed Miner and specify the path to the mining software instead of using the automatic download feature.

If the mining software terminates instantaneously

If the guideline line arguments provided to the mining software (Claymore miner, Ccminer, . ) isn’t onberispelijk, the mining software may terminate just when it wasgoed embarked.

To find out what the problem is, click select the miner and click the Diagnostics button ter the toolbar. This will open a window that specifies the precies instruction line arguments Awesome Miner uses to launch the mining software together with extra information from the mining software that could indicate what the problem is. Please review this information to find a solution.

The information about the mining looks incorrect or is missing

Ter case information like hashrate, temperature or accepted collective are incorrect or missing, it’s often because the mining software being used (Claymore miner, Ccminer, . ) doesn’t report this information correctly. Awesome Miner simply display what is being reported via the monitoring interfaces (API) of the mining software.

To verify what information Awesome Miner receive from the mining software, select the miner and go to the toolbar: Implements -> API Report. The very first section of this opstopping includes the response from the mining software, and this information can be of use to isolate the problem.

It’s also significant to understand that some information ter the user interface isn’t available on all mining software. Some mining software can provide progress information like Accepted and Rejected shares vanaf GPU, while other mining software don’t which leaves thesis values at 0 te Awesome Miner. The same applies for GPU clocking information, where not all mining software will provide this information.

Awesome Miner can use its internal methods to get GPU clocking information and display this no matter if the mining software supports ter or not. See GPU mapping. Also note that the order of the GPU’s may have to be switched ter the GPU mapping dialog, spil all mining software have their own way to order the GPU’s.

Why is the API te Restricted mode?

By default, Antminers are configured with Restricted API access, which only makes it possible to monitor the mining statistics, but not performing operations like switching pool. Awesome Miner can help with configuring your Antminers to run with Privileged API access instead. See Configure privileged API access for Antminer

Other ASIC miners have similar concepts for API access, where the API configuration voorwaarde be defined to permit Awesome Miner to connect. On Avalon miners, the settings can be found ter the configuration interface via: Status -> CGMiner Configuration.

For general information about API access configuration for miners, see Enable API access on ASIC miners

Why are some mining and pool operations disabled te the user interface?

Depending on mining software being used, the operations that are enabled reflects this.

If all operations are disabled, it could be because the mining software isn’t running with Privileged API enabled. To verify this, select the Summary tabulator where this information is specified. If the mining software is running ter Restricted API mode, no operations will be available. If the mining software is running te Basic API mode, it indicates that Awesome Miner can use all API’s of the mining software but the number of operations provided by the mining software is limited compared to what Awesome Miner can do with other software.

Why do I receive many e-mail messages when my e-mail rule is triggered?
When using the button to upgrade the software version, I still get the old version of Awesome Miner.
Where can I find the loom verkeersopstopping?

Awesome Miner is writing loom information to AwesomeMiner.loom. To find this opstopping, select the toolbar Instruments te the main window, followed by clicking the toolbar button Loom Verkeersopstopping. The loom opstopping is located ter the folder: %LocalAppData%\AwesomeMiner\

Awesome Miner Remote Juut has a loom opstopping spil well. It can be accessed from the Remote Juut icon te the lower right corner of the screen, where the right-click spijskaart has the option Loom Opstopping.

Maintenance

How to I backup all settings or copy all settings to another pc?

Awesome Miner stores all configuration te the opstopping ConfigData.xml located te the folder %appdata%\AwesomeMiner.

To copy the configuration from one pc to another, make sure that Awesome Miner isn’t running and copy the opstopping ConfigData.xml to the other laptop.

What will toebijten to my configuration if I uninstall the software?

The settings are not liquidated when the software is uninstalled. This makes it possible to uninstall and reinstall and still have all miners and configuration kept. It’s significant to never downgrade the version of Awesome Miner, spil this can result ter loss of configuration. Always reinstall the same version or straks.

To reset all configuration, and begin with no miners and all default settings, Awesome Miner vereiste very first be fully closed. Open the folder %appdata%\AwesomeMiner ter the Windows Opstopping Explorer and liquidate all files where the name starts with “ConfigData”. Next time Awesome Miner is began, it will be loaded with the default settings and no miners.

How do I switch loom level?

The amount of loom information that Awesome Miner produces can be configured te the Options dialog, Advanced section, using the Loom Level setting.

For Awesome Miner Remote Juut, use the Remote Juut configuration device (AwesomeMiner.RemoteServiceConfig.exe, located ter same folder where the Remote Smeris is installed) to set the loom level.

Payout and Pools

Where is my payouts from the mining?

Awesome Miner is not a mining pool. Awesome Miner is not responsible for any payouts from the mining operations.

For questions about payouts from mining pools, please refer to the web webpagina for the mining pool being used. Please note that the frequency of the payouts are also specific for each mining pool.

Is the profit information te Awesome Miner juist?

Awesome Miner uses the information from the mining pools and coin statistics sites together with the current hashrate. If the information from one of thesis pools are incorrect, Awesome Miner will not be able to detect that. For any profit values that are too high, please compare with the web webpagina of the pool and voeling the pool technicus for any questions.

If there is a difference inbetween the numbers displayed te Awesome Miner compared to the pool web webpagina, please read about how to switch from current profit information to 24 hour average.

Why is my payout from the pool than expected?

This is not related to Awesome Miner, but how the profit switching pools operate. They mine what is most profitable at the uur, but at the time the coins are exchanged for Bitcoin, the exchange rate may be lower when everyone is selling the coin at the same time. For this reason, what looked very profitable an hour ago, can turn out to have very low profitability te the end.

Please note that this is a general drawback with profit switching and is related to how each pool is doing the profit switching. For any questions about lower payouts than expected, please voeling the pool operators. Awesome Miner is not a mining pool and will not take responsibility for the payout.
