An update coming down the pipes for next release....
Fan failure protection w/ webgui output in big red letters when a potential fan failure has been detected!!!!

Up till now, my monitoring script has dynamically adjusted clocks up n down depending on environmental temperatures that increased / decreased gradually. It would attempt to clock the unit down as temps rose but this happened at the rate of KNC's monitoring script which is 1 poll per minute. A fan failure would easily go up in temperature much quicker than decreasing 25mhz ever 1 minute on respective dies would account for.
In the process of coding this I also found fault w/ KNC's waas command not actually being able to set a die OFF, rather bfgminer would have to be restarted and the advanced.conf file held a null value of any desired dies to be set as "OFF".
So... what Ive come up with is a small rewrite of setting dies to OFF logic(now all dies set to off while mining will invoke a bfgminer restart).
Next, onto the fan fail protection conditions...
1. If either of the DCDC temps of any die have detected as being above the user set threshold by 10C or more then the dies will be turn OFF.
OR
2. If either of the DCDC temps of any die have reached 115C or higher then that die will be set OFF.

After all dies which meet the condition above have been set to OFF, bfgminer will be issued a restart command.
A warning in big red letters on the STATUS page of webgui will warn about a possible fan failure detection.

To clear the warning the pi must be rebooted(I figured in the case of a genuine fan failure, the pi will be turned off along w/ the miner to service the cube w/ the failed fan).

*note.... if the 115C threshold ends up being an issue for anyone running their titans this hot well... A: your Titan will not last long B: I can always change this upward, but Im willing only to go up to 120C or so.

I will post when this release will be live.

Hello gentarkin!I think your idea of fan fail message on the lcd screen is a good idea because i use lcd screen.But i have a question :Is there a possibility to change the way that the cubes are detected by the controller?I still have problem with my titan who isn't working anymore since 2 months now just because cubes are not detected anymore.on the four cubes ,just one recognized by the controller in the dcdc's average temperature  column but not in the temperature column of the status page.i can't fix the problem and have no idea anymore....

I want to make sure everyone knows that I just released my software called "Yobit pump alert". THis is custom software that uses an algo to detect the start of a pump here on yobit, the second it starts. YOu can even filter the coins you see by price. Most pumps start less than 100 sats , so you can easily filter the cheap coins, so they are the only ones displayed Smiley https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1945937.msg20241953#msg20241953

Frenchy, does any cube show up in that port on your controller? If no, then it could be a bad port on your controller. You can remove the lcd screen and use that as a port. Also its possible that its a bad ribbon cable. Try another Ribbon cable in that port. Also does that cube work in another port?

Ok, included in the next version will also be code to show possible fan-fail detection message & what cubes ... on the LCD display =)
The LCD display will revert to default after pi is rebooted.

I think this is a good addition to notify of fan failure and in my case of unattended miners its great to have over heat protections built in

Gentarkin and I have talked and decided to focus more heavily on developing the premium version. The free version will always be atleast 1 version behind from now on. The premium version users will always get the latest version , the minute its released. V.99b will be released very shortly to the premium users. My website is in the middle of changing host providers, so its down for a few hours. When v.99b is released I will post it on my premium page and email everyone that has paid for a premium version.

V.99b will include the following changes and will be released soon:

Major changes in this release:
FAN-FAIL protection - The way this works is, if any die DCDC's are detected 10C over the user specified temp threshold(and DCDC protection is enabled) OR DCDC's are over 115C(and DCDC protection is enabled) then those dies will be shut off & bfgminer restarted. A warning in big red letters will be thrown up on the STATUS page of webgui, also if using the LCD, its message will switch to "Poss. Fan-Fail!". Both the STATUS page message & LCD message will say what cube(as labeled per webgui advanced page) was flagged as having a possible fan failure.
To clear fan-fail message on status page & LCD... a reboot of the pi will be needed.

there is no way to physically detect an actual fan failure as it seems there is no sort of fan monitoring / control on these boards, so thats why I came up w/ the rule based fan failure detection.

Minor changes:
1. More options in DCDC dropdown menu
2. Added wall watts estimation to ADVANCED page. Assumes 85% PSU effeciency plus power required for pi, controllerboard & fans.
3. Replaced default KNC version message on LCD w/ GenTarkin's Mod version information

Minor fixes:
1. Refined hostname(minername) handling & backupname file handling
2. Removed bfgminer.sh from git & builds to avoid overwriting peoples custom command line arguments for bfgminer.

Thank you. We were dividing our time on both and less was getting done. We had to come to a decision on what to do. People still will have a free version, but it will take a backseat, and the premium version with all the latest goodies will come first.

Just want to thank you and Gentarkin for continuing to improve this mod!  I have installed the latest premium V.99b to all 3 Titan Controllers and they are all running well so far.  I do noticed a bit more hashrate fluctuation, but that's probably expected since it has been hot where I am at and the new software is doing a better job of keeping the cubes at a safe temperature.

May I make a suggest for the next firmware release?  How about adding some kind of scheduler to turn off bfgminer/mining at certain configurable hours, when it is hot or when the electricity rate is at the highest during peak hours?  This is more for future consideration if Litecoin difficulty continues to rise faster than the norm.  We can turn off mining when it is unprofitable and turn it back on when it is profitable.

Ya I do like the idea. Im on a special plan from the electric company. For the whole year I pay 5cents kh/r. Now during the months of July and August  between 2pm-7pm cost is 58 cents kw/hr, so My miners go off. So this might be helpful

Im happy your happy w/ the firmware! Thanks for your purchase!
Im already testing code for the next release of v.99c =)

Regarding ur suggestions:

Thats quite easy to do, power off the rig... LOL =P

No, but seriously... my code already has temperature adjustment built in, hence the DCDC threshold setting. It will autoclock up / down for you =)
A schedule of turning off & on is really not needed. I used to think I could outsmart elec company by mining during offpeak hours and not much at all during peak hours. In the end all calculations came out extremely close.... so really, thats kinda pointless.

Ive had several requests for scheduling features or clock settings / scheduling based on expected temps. It takes way more work to impliment then I think is worth it. I think may people forget that the temperature based clock is already built in, and the other folk dont really think about what they are asking .... in the end its like asking someone to reinvent the wheel.

I do appreciate the suggestions tho =)

Turn them off manually! thats MONTHS ur talking about. Theres no way to have the pi completely shut down the entire miner and its really really not a good idea to just have the pi power down meanwhile all the cubes are up n running n idling around.

That is unless when the pi is powered off, the controller board is smart enough to know this and it tells everything to shut down. But I doubt thats the case. LOL

Just a heads up to all who use my firmware:

Next release is already planned and in testing...
New features:
1. implimented KNCminion webgui interface extension w/ link on status page
2. Auto bypassing of dies that cause soft / hard reset spamming
   *note: once a die is added to the list for auto bypass that means its "health" will no longer be monitored. MEANING... no further attempts to reset it will be made if it stops hashing.
   *note: when a die makes it on the auto bypass list a message will appear in webgui ADVANCED page showing you which die and offer an option to clear all the dies in that list.
   *note: when issuing the clear command, those dies very well may make it in that list again, the clear is mostly designed for those who swap around cubes on their controllers.
 
3. other misc fixes n stuff =P

one request this goes with your first item here can you modify the bfgscrypt to allow monitoring of the stats via software i think by default its only open to a loopback address so it can only monitor itself. I have a vpn and i monitor my offsite miners using cgwatcher i am able to monitor all my antminers and my A2 without issue but I think by default the KnC's are only set to allow access for monitoring to there own IP and not open to the entire network this should be really easy to change i just don't know where to poke around. Maybe something you can allow to be enabled from the web interface as an option where you disable the writing to the SD card?
