ASIC management and monitoring system that installs directly onto Bitmain© hardware.
Visit downloads to get started. See https://asdemo.asicseer.com/ for an example panel and join the #asicseer-help IRC channel.
ASICseer is currently running on 4,296 ASICs and helping to produce 5.6 megawatts worth of blockchain security.
- Free to use: Download and begin using immediately.
- ASICboost: ASICseer uses ASICboost to reduce power, then increases hashrate by 10-15% with the extra capacity.
- Frequency tuning: Get an additional 5-10% extra hashrate. ASICseer automatically tunes each chip to the best of its performance ability.
- Power management: Manage ASIC power by setting ASIC maximum watts. Decreasing saves power, increasing boosts hashrate.
- Enterprise-class control: Use VLAN ranges and groups to separate your customers if necessary. No proxies required.
- Overheat protection: ASICs automatically stop mining if they reach predefined temperature thresholds. Quickly see farm hotspots.
- Full-farm control: Control thousands of units (there is no limit) with a single Remote Config file. Adjust settings without rebooting ASICs.
- Power monitoring: Display and track real-time power usage. Manage billing with historical APIs.
- Multi-ASIC roll-out: One-liner installation scaling from a few to thousands of units. Safe and automatic installation, no need to install one-by-one.
- Accurate reporting: All ASICs report to a single unified web panel with detailed statistics, charts, and event reports. Quickly see problem ASICs.
- configmaker.com support: Input your ConfigMaker URL during installation to gain control of ASICs remotely.
- Remote configuration: Reboot, reset, blink lights, set rack location, fan control, change pools, and other settings remotely.
- Free 24/7 support: Free 24/7 lifetime support via the #asicseer-help IRC channel.
- Supports Popular ASICs: Immediate support for all Antminer S9/S9i/S9j models, with planned support for all Bitmain SHA256 miners.
- Easy update: Update to the latest version of ASICseer quickly and easily (even automatically, if you like).
- Stable: ASICseer performs best-effort maintenance and management fans and hashboards to increase uptime and stability.
- Secure: All data is sent and served over secure https connections. NTP exploit fixed. Optional Panel password protection is supported.
About ASICseer Development
ASICseer brings the same kind of management and monitoring solutions to ASICs that our GPU customers have grown to love from ethOS.
- ASICseer uses a sliding scale developer fee that charges 1% for every 5% improvement in mining efficiency.
- Most customers will end up paying a 2.5%-2.9% fee for a 20-30% improvement in either hashrate and/or power usage.
- The fee is calculated by mining a certain percentage of the time to the ASICseer development pools.

Limitation of Scope
The following features are possible on ASICs, but must be done without the support of ASICseer developers or staff. Performing the below actions should be done at your own risk.
- Wireless networking (causes packet loss, especially in large deployments).
- GUI-based ASIC management (all required management is done through config files).
- Dual-PSU systems (if any issue is resolved by using a single PSU, it is a hardware problem).
- Self-regulating reboots (does not fix any hardware, software, or configuration problem).
Firmware Limitations and Restoring your ASIC
Bitmain's latest firmwares restrict your ability to SSH to your ASIC. For now, if you need to restore your ASIC to factory settings, instead of upgrading to Bitmain's firmware,
use the "Restore via IP Report Button" functionality as described on Point 3 of Bitmain's factory restore guide.
Please also contact Bitmain and kindly let them know how important it is for you to have software that does not place limits or restrictions on your ability to interact with your purchased hardware.
