Well ... the crappy clone uses the ftdi_sio module for all BFL, Lacelot, Cairnsmore and Avalon products ...

That seems like some weird workaround, stopping support for those other devices ... or does the clone not handle USB correctly?

Of course it will have no negative effect on cgminer Smiley
Aside: of course cgminer has no x6500 support.

So ...

You would have to talk with fizzisist or TheSeven about that.

Hmmm, I should have read it better.

I will include the udev rule but if I blacklist ftdi_sio it seems that it will break bfgminer.

I am at home getting over the flu so I don't seem to be able to think straight!

cgminer's udev rules already covers the FTDI 0x6001 so you probably already have it there also Smiley

Someone (NOT Neil) send me an x6500 and I'll try adding support for it.

I've had 8 BAS for 3 or 4 days, but then opted to break them up over 4 Pi for redundancy. Time is money, Pi are cheap.  Cool

EDIT: Just thought what about a mobile interface?
curious, what kind of mobile interface are you thinking of? the current web UI scaling well in a mobile browser? an android app? an iphone/ipad app?

More towards smartphones etc nothing really detailed, stuff like the basic miner details etc. More for those who's PC is either being used or something along them lines, or even if they just can't be bothered to turn the PC on.

EDIT: Another suggestion (Which might be in the works) is having a set of graphs for the RPi information. Maybe have a seperate tab for it, as I sure that a fair few people would like to know what/how their RPi's are handling it.

At he moment the WebUI is getting a lot of attention, AngularJS (http://angularjs.org/) is being introduced as a proper application frame work and it has mobile extensions.

Backups and restores are also coming up in the next versions as well as better process management of the miners.

Neil

Brilliant, can't wait for it. Any ideas on when it will be?

Also is there an update processes to minimize miner downtime? Or can we update stuff like the WebUI without bringing down the whole miner?

Also have you thought about/are there snmp tools on it? Or is it something that we could install ourselves?

I was hoping to get a version out this weekend, but I have been a tad ill and I have only just started testing stuff with any real earnest.

Also is there an update processes to minimize miner downtime? Or can we update stuff like the WebUI without bringing down the whole miner?

Not his time, normal you can just pull from git (I will be including that in the WebUI soon too) but there are a lot of changes going on.  Some of the changes are to the OS even and not a matter of git pulling.

Also have you thought about/are there snmp tools on it? Or is it something that we could install ourselves?

SNMP is there, it is not much use though on the raspberry pi (the network interface is not even supported because it is not on the PCI bus, the pi does not even have a PCI bus).  What were you thinking that the functionality of SNMP anyways?  You may have a use that I was not thinking of.

Well for the SNMP I'm setting up an Icinga server in the near future, and it's basically so I can keep an eye on it in a central monitoring environment.

Well ... you'd really want to look at the cgminer API ... and one of the most useful fields there is "Last Valid Work" for each device.
So that would be custom monitoring anyway.
... and if you are unable to talk to the cgminer API, then something is wrong anyway.

I was looking at the pools page.

are the different pools in a load balance or are they in failover?

basicly I was trying to work out if it was possible to have a few pools listed and then be able to tick which is the primary pool and then have the others as failover. i would like to be able to change the primary pool without reentering the information.

for example right now PPCcoin is higher return so i would like to tick a ppc pool. then later switch back to btc as primary.

anyway i hope that makes sense. is it possible?

No you can't have different coins mining ... even as failover ... as per line 3 of the cgminer README

Well for the SNMP I'm setting up an Icinga server in the near future, and it's basically so I can keep an eye on it in a central monitoring environment.

Or the NRPE Agent, as Nagios is another good monitoring system. I found this, but have not got it all running yet: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nagios-nrpe/

I used to use NRPE on my Debian rigs when I used to GPU mine, to send me alerts when cgminer had stopped or the general "is it pingable". But I have to say, with Minepeon it's not really a concern much anymore, if cgminer crashes it just restarts it.

I would like to get the whole Nagios/NRPE setup, but it's just to satisfy the need to tinker, more stats and graphs. Grin

So for now I have just opted to use a Pi running Raspbian with apache, and run the miner.php included in cgminer source. Then I can at least have full overview of the mining farm on one page, and it works on mobile/tablet. Cool

In which case Big welcome to Thomas, cant wait to see what you come up with...

If this is even possible with the current setup, Rig Hash Rate falls below XXMh/s restart service.  I have trouble with one or three FPGA board getting sick in BFGMiner and it need a soft kick to get mining again.
