What does it mean when one rig has a red background in my dashboard

If your rig has a red background it usually means it`s offline and/or it stopped submitting data to our platform. In cases like these we recommend manually restarting you rig and inspecting your components. If for some reason you think it`s another problem related to the platform, feel free to Contact Us and report any problems you are experiencing as detailed as you can.

This feature divides for two categories of miners:


1. Owner

You have a number of rigs or even a mining farm and cannot manage them, don't know how or you simply don't have the time.

Now you can share any number of rigs or all of them, with someone else that will take care of them. He can then help with the OC settings, reboot, changing the pool to mine another coin, etc.


Also when sharing the rigs, you have the option to specify a manager fee in %



2. The manager.

He is the one that manages the rigs shared with him by others, for a small fee (or even free, depending on the case)

He is able to manage his own rigs and the ones that he is given manager privileges.



NOTE:

The manager cannot change the pool definition of the owner (including the wallet). He has limitations in regards to the action he can apply on the managed rigs

Owner side


To share your rigs with another person go to Sharing and click on Share my rigs.


Specify a fee % and select the rigs you are going to share with the manager


Finish by clicking on Share my rigs.


You will then receive a Hash code, which you are going to give to the manager so that he can accept your rigs.




Manager Side


To accept the rigs from the owner, you need to register the Hash code given to you, in the Sharings Menu, on Register Manager Key.


Once that is done, you will be able to manage the shared rigs for a small fee % .


NOTE:

The manager cannot change the pool definition of the owner (including the wallet). He has limitations in regards to the action he can apply on the managed rigs

The feature, what it does, is selecting the pool you want, automatically, for each component or rig.


To make it do just that, you first need to create the profile you want with the filters you desire.


The filters for the auto-attach pool profile are:

  • algorithm – here you choose the algorithm you want to use, from the list the platform has to offer. Remember that new algorithms will always be added;
  • component model – here you choose what model your components are;

  • component vendor – the vendors of the components, either Nvidia or AMD;

  • rig name – here you choose the rigs you want the pool to be attached.


Last, you choose the pool you want your components or rigs to use.


After you made the choices you want for the profile, you only need to Apply the changes and Create the Profile.


You can also watch our guide on how to create the profile.

Also when adding new rigs to the account, the Auto-Attach will automatically add the pool profile, if it meets the requirements given by the added filters of the profile.

To bring the cards to a stable overclock, it is important that they are part of the same model if the cards are from AMD.


1. You can start by blocking the cards from mining and leaving only one to make the overclock settings, until it is stable.

- Once stable, make the same changes for the rest of the cards, and unblock them from mining. -


2. Start the rig with one card. Make the overclock settings until stable.

- Once stable, add the rest of the cards, making the same OC settings as the first card. -

All you need is a wallet for the coin you are trying to mine and some basic understanding of how it works. If you do not have a wallet, we would recommend to make an account on Poloniex for a wide selection.

Once you already have an account with us you have to start by burning the img file on your hdd, file that you can download from the download section in your dashboard. After this step proceed booting the rig and register it to the platform by using the license key shown on your rig screen. Once you completed this step you can go ahead and define the pools and assign them to your rig which will instruct it  to start mining.

If you have not opted for a prepaid solution in favor of a fee based one you are probably asking how is the fee calculated.
The answer is very simple, every 24h the system will choose random from your components and will mine the equivalent time with your package % fee. The process is totally random and automatic. Depending on the amount of components you can see one or more components fee mining at any giving time.

This is the revision number of a certain component, specifically video cards have different revision numbers when they are produced and thus some small settings may differ from one rev to another and small performance differences. Although some of these revisions have differences between them, it will not be a huge impact on the component performance.
