Hey guys. New to mining so I'm not sure if these very large values are concerning or not.

https://ibb.co/ftNMtb

Not sure if this image will show... it might be "you need to post a bit before you can" situation.

If it is and you cant see the screen shot my most concerning value is DiffA# on Pool 0 shows = 2,748,234,968

Chain 6 HW# is = 8495

Temps for all three chips are as follows = 72 (chain 6 chip), 66, 66
Fan 3 = 4,320
Fan 6 = 5,160

It has been running for 10 days 1 hour.

If someone can help me understand that be great. Thanks.

Thanks Raymond.

Is there a link or manual that explains the different categories and what they actually mean or refer to?
What are potential limits for these various categories?

Other then keeping temps in not above the 70s and having all zeros in the ASIC Status I'm pretty green.

There's really isn't, I wish there was. Search this forum, you'll find that it's safe to run these things quite a bit higher than 70* Celsius. Honestly as long as it's hashing pretty close to its specified rate and not running more than 80C (my limit, others run quite a bit higher) or so just leave it be and let it make BTC Smiley

Some here run at 90C all the time. Presumably that temperature is fine for these chips.

Thanks fellas.

By all means I'm not touching a thing I just would like to be more educated on the hardware and how to monitor it for long term stability and not be reactionary if something were to happen.

Anyhow I will do a bit more searching around. If I find anything worth noting I will plug it in to this thread.

If I'm not mistaken, "DiffA#" is the total combined difficulty of accepted shares.  For example, in your screenshot the current difficulty shows 11.7K, so an accepted share would add 11.7K to the "DiffA#" reading.  Over time this number should get quite large.  Everything in your screenshot looks great.  If anything, your temps are even a little cooler than they need to be.

DiffA is a good thing.  you want that number to be as high as possible.

HW errors are consistent with run time - look at the HW percentage. Normal for how long you have been running.

Temps and Fan speeds are fine.

Thanks guys for the positive feedback. I appreciate the breakdown, every piece of detail helps with the knowledge base.

I'm concerned about:

 
Miner is running FINE....sweet

But the stales and rejects are insane bad...BAD CONNECTIVITY to POOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I have a hardline connection to my Xfinity modem to the S9. I get 150Mbps on download and 11Mbps on upload from a wireless connection on 2.4G.
Not sure why I would have connectivity issues??

Are there any logs on the S9 I could post that would show this in more detail to confirm this?

Dont listen to this. There is nothing wrong with any of your stats.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

Thanks for the reply... I wish we did not have conflicting info on the same post.
But, I guess that would only be possible in a perfect world.

How there is not a document that simply states what all the categories are of the S9, what they specifically stand for...and where they should be running for optimization and when there are reaching limits. That would be grand.

The connectivity to the pool is not necessarily on your end - it could be the pool. I have seen other people with pool connection problems, particularly with antpool since it is in China and the traffic has to traverse the "great firewall of China". If possible, use a pool that is geographically close to you, that will help to ensure that you have good connectivity to the pool that you are using.
