I'm wondering if there's any way for a solo miner to keep track of stats, like one would have access to as part of a pool. For example, if I had 5 machines each contributing 500 Mh/s for a total of 2500 Mh/s solo effort, and I wanted to pull up a quick stat page on my smartphone while at work and away from the miners to check and make sure that the hash rates are where they are supposed to be. Is this something that is possible to author for a solo mining effort?

AFAIK BAMT does that nice and easy, with an awesome web GUI

If you love me, you'd give me a Satoshi!

Solo mining with 2500 mhash/s ?Cheesy

Hope you are joking ...

There is nothing wrong with soloing at 2.5GH, as long as the risks are understood.
At my luckiest, I solved two blocks ~28 hours apart with 3GH (difficulty was ~1.4M). Grin

As far as BAMT goes, it will just show 0 accepts and 0 rejects until it solves a block at current difficulty.  1/0 = congrats!  0/0 = not yet.  0/1 = [lots of cursing]

I see the value of Bitcoin, so I don't worry about the price...

But BAMT will show his rigs are still running, right?

Accepts and rejects are not quite what I was aiming for, because my miners may be at 0 Mh/s and I would have no idea. I'm after something that can broadcast hash rates in real time.

Also, the 2500 Mh/s was just thrown out as an example, but that doesn't sound implausible as a solo hash rate.

If you solo mine directly against bitcoin, you'll only see a result when you find an actual block (rarely). If you want your miners to be reporting success more frequently, you'll have to essentially setup your own private pool then.  Run pushpool or one of the newer pool servers that will sit between your miners and bitcoin to hand out difficulty 1 work and track shares, etc.

With only 2500mh/s, there's going to be huge variances, and especially since difficulty is still changing. I only have 1 rig, I wouldn't even think for a second to do solo mining. Unless you'll be doing solo mining for a long time, don't expect to gain anything statistically.

Run p2pool. That way you can set a username for each miner, and there are charts generated automatically. Best of all it's solo mining with the variance of a 360 GH/s pool.
