I've written a script that can be used with the btcguild api to query worker progress and detect any idle workers. The script has the capability of sending an email, if configured. It is defaulted to gmail's SMTP server, but you can use whatever SMTP you want.

Currently it will just print out what it receives. It's a small script so it has the most flexibility when you customize it for your own needs.


  • chmod +x
  • ./ APIKEY

Example Output:

worker1 42.95 0.0151% 6 seconds
worker2 276.79 0.0515% 52 seconds
worker3 257.7 0.0424% 35 seconds
worker4 305.42 0.0666% 5 seconds
worker5 262.47 0.0727% 6 seconds
total 1145.33 0.2483%

There are a few ways you could use this script... 1) install a cron and have it run every 30 minutes, or 2) write a bash script (see below) that loops and sleeps to execute this script

while true; do ./ APIKEY && sleep 1800; done

I am aware that btcguild supports idle notification already, but 1) just for donators, and 2) this is a bit more flexible
