I am a fan on Hiveos right now. Recently I altered the hashrate watchdog script to work with the USB watchdog so that way we do hard resets instead of using a command.

Please check out my video if you like subscribe.
This is the video guide I made:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfCnabAjHn0

First thing is to plug in your USB watchdog correctly.

Turn on the Miner and SSH into it.

Edit the file /hive/bin/wd

Replace: nohup bash -c 'sreboot'
with: /hive/opt/qinheng/hl340 reset
different watchdogs will use a different script

Then restart the service with this command: systemctl restart hive-watchdog.service

And done.

You can test by setting the hashrate watchdog to an unrealistic expectation and then wait and watch the USB watchdog work.

If you have any feedback let me know thanks! and I hope this was helpful to the few of you out there

What if hiveos hangs without sending a reboot command? Most of the time my rigs just go offline, without any logs or rebooting sent.

I have had the same issue, which is why I invested in these USB watchdogs.

The USB Watchdog has to get pinged by the rig. Otherwise it will auto-reset the miner.
So if your miner hangs or is frozen/unresponsive then the USB watchdog won't get pinged.
The ping essentially restarts the internal timer on the USB watchdog.
Which will result in a reset once the internal timer in the miner runs out.

Also check out this video I made it explains things in more detail.

Let me know if you need me to further elaborate  Grin
