Quick Start Guide

ASICseer is separated into read-only and read-write. Your Panel handles the read-only and your Remote Config File handles the read-write.

  1. Set up your Remote Config File using the Writing your Config guide. For example, you can change your pool information and Set your Custom Panel.
  2. Go to Downloads, paste your Remote Config File link into the provided field, and click "GENERATE INSTALL SCRIPT."
  3. Run the installation script on the same network as your ASICs. It will take about 10 minutes for ASICseer to install and for mining to resume.
  4. After the installation finishes, bookmark your Panel and visit it to view your farm.

Using ConfigMaker.com for your Remote Config File

  1. Go to ConfigMaker.com
  2. Set your custompanel (optional, but recommended), edit the config to suit your preferences.
  3. Press 'Save Changes' and bookmark your private text editor.
  4. Make changes to your ConfigMaker.com config to manage your ASICs.

Setting up your ConfigMaker config allows you to manage all of your ASICs remotely (even reboot). See Writing your Config for documentation.


Setting up your own Remote Config File

  1. Copy https://asicseer.com/config.txt and host it yourself on a remote server, vps, or shared hosting account that you control.
  2. Get the link to your Remote Config File like http://your-server.com/config.txt
    NOTE: The link http://your-server.com/config.txt is an example. You must use your own link.
  3. Set your custompanel (optional, but recommended), edit the config to suit your preferences.
  4. Make changes to your remotely hosted config to manage your ASICs.

Setting up your Remote Config File allows you to manage all of your ASICs remotely (even reboot). See Writing your Config for documentation.


Writing your Config

Your entire farm can be controlled with a single Remote Config File. Your Remote Config File is downloaded and applied to your ASIC every 10 minutes, so any changes can take up to 10 minutes to take effect. See https://asicseer.com/config.txt for an example config. Everything with a hashtag/poundsign is a comment, and is ignored by all scripts.

Note: All config settings, except for usernames, wallets, and passwords, are always lowercase.

The format for writing your config is worker setting value where:

Use global for the worker name to apply a setting to all ASICs on which you have installed the same Remote Config File.

poolname2,username2,poolpass2,sendworker2andpoolname3,username3,poolpass3,sendworker3 are the 2nd/3rd pools.

location and ipaddress can only only be applied to individual ASICs, you cannot use global or group for them.

ab34ef is an example worker name (use your own ASIC's worker names here, one per line).

group searches location for a string and applies your setting to any ASIC location that has a match. The below example will reboot ASICs with a location that has rowc in it, and will turn off mining on ASICs with a location that has rowd in it.

# group=rowc rebootasic 1
# group=rowd allowed no

Customizing your Worker Name / Location

To switch your worker name and assign a location, follow the below guide.

  1. In your config, set worker location newname (worker is your original 6-digit worker name and newname is your new worker name).
  2. Do not add a newname to your wallet like wallet.newname, this will not work.
  3. Do not use very long newname. The maximum length is 12 characters.
  4. Do not use the same newname for multiple ASICs.

After this procedure, your pool will see your new worker name, and your ASIC will have a new location assigned on your Panel.


Assigning Worker Names / Locations Automatically

If you use hostnames to manage your worker names and ASIC locations, ASICseer will use them to set Worker Names / Locations during installation.
If you have a big farm and don't know where any of your ASICs are located, ASICseer makes it easy to find them.

NOTE: It is important to do the below steps when your Internet is stable, and your ASICs are online and reporting.

  1. After installing ASICseer, go to your Panel. Then, physically go to your first Rack ("Rack A") and decide on an order for them.
  2. Reseat the ethernet cables on your ("Rack A") ASICs in order, one by one (unplug, wait a few seconds, replug, and go to the next ASIC).
  3. Wait at least 3 minutes.
  4. Your Panel will show s-timestamp in the "loc" column (the time your ASIC's Internet connection became reestablished).
  5. Click on "SET WORKERS" and copy-paste the location stanza into your Remote Config File.
  6. Rename each s-timestamp with names like: a1,a2,a3...
  7. Continue doing this for all rows and racks. As long as you reseat all ASICs in the order you prefer, ASICseer will order them correctly.

Managing Temperature

If any ASIC blade approaches maxtemp, ASICseer will increase fans to 100% and set all frequencies to stock. If any blade exceeds maxtemp, the miner will turn off until you reboot or reset the ASIC.

Follow the below steps to reduce the chances of your ASICs overheating:


Setting a Custom Panel

ASICseer assigns a 6-character Panel based on a hash of your external IP. This way, all ASICs on one network can report to the same Panel.

If your public IP changes, your Panel will change.

You can set your own Custom Panel with the custompanel parameter.
