We are pleased to announce support for monitoring CGminer in the latest version of LoadAvg! Now you can use LoadAvg as a full fledged monitoring framework for your linux based mining rigs.

What is LoadAvg ?

LoadAvg is a powerful way to manage load, memory, and resource usage on linux servers, cloud computers and virtual machines - and its open source so no price attached. With the addition of CGminer support, you can now use it as a monitoring tool.

We know it has a long way to go compared to other mining monitors, but when coupled with its large array of monitoring modules and its low resource usage, it makes for a great monitor that you can run on anything from a Raspberry Pi and up.


LoadAvg only requires PHP and a web based front end, like Nginx, Lightppd or Apache, and works online as well on mobile devices.

LoadAvg is still coming out of beta so we are adding features frequently. Since this is our first release with mining support, we know we have a long way to go there as well so look forward to your feedback!

How to get up and running

Installing LoadAvg is quite simple, you can grab it from github or directly from our downloads page and follow the instructions.

Once you have installed LoadAvg and its running, simply head to the module setting and enable the Mining module. Then add the Server IP and Port that CGminer is running on and you are good to go.

There are two values that you can set for montoring, Overload 1 and Overload 2, set both of these to -1 to disable them.

Overload 1 is the Low Hash – anything that hashes below this value will be flagged.

Overload 2 is the High Hash – anything that hashes above this value will be flagged.

Settings For CGminer

To get LoadAvg to work with CGminer you need to enable the CGminer api and listen mode. This is how we did it here (we are running on ckpool).

sudo cgminer -o stratum+tcp:// -u bitcoinaddress -p x --api-allow W:0/0 --api-listen

We have only tested it with CGminer so far, and only record basic information - will start to add more features in the coming releases.

Thats all folks

Since this is our first release with mining support, we know we have a long way to go so look forward to your feedback to help make it a useful tool!


the Team and LoadAvg
