I am sure many have built several dedicated mining rigs without monitors attached.
How do you guys monitor the PCs to make sure the mining program is still running and not hanged?
I know I can use VNC to remotely login into the PC and check on it, but that requires me login into individual PCs.
I am in need of a way to monitor all mining clients all at once, whats the best way to do it?

Thanks, and happy mining!

Interesting. Both hung and hanged could work in this sentence, with the latter as more of a metaphor.

Check out bitcoinity.org and Ripple.

What parameters do you want to monitor ? Hashing speeds, temps or what else ?

You can see how the mining program is running by looking at your personal page on the pool's site.

I just want to know if the mining program is still running, and hash speed if possible.

On the pool's site, in the case of deepbit.net, I would be looking at the "Shares" column?

Yes. Also you can set timeout threshold and worker name will turn red if no share is received within that time.

I cant wait for Tycho to implement notification for when a miner is down. I just check his site on my iPhone once an hour now but itll be nice to be able to chill by the pool without having to check.

If you're using Linux clients, run all the miners in a Screen session, then you can ssh in and reattatch the screen to check on their status.

Tmux is a more modern alternative to screen that might be worth checking out.

Munin is good for this kind of stuff - you could monitor every rig from the comfort of your browser. Cdecker wrote a Munin plugin for monitoring Slush's pool, which would be fairly easy to adapt for other pools.  I've got Munin plugins for fan speeds and GPU temperatures, I've even got a plugin for MtGox prices :-) Munin is very easy to write plugins for.

You don't say what OS or OSs you need this for, but Munin runs on pretty much everything.

My pc in my basement has no mon/k/m at all.
Just one thing, dont attempt to disable the network connection and think your going to cycle it manually while remotly logged in Smiley I just did that. hah..
