Monitoring the statistics can greatly improve the efficiency of your farm. But how exactly can you track it? How to do this?

It’s simple — hashrate, temperature, energy consumption, efficiency and stability can tell a lot about your potential problems. However, if you have hundreds or even thousands of GPU rigs or ASICs, analyzing all of this data can be challenging.

Thanks to this Statistic feature, you are able to do the following:
  • Figure out which devices generate income;
  • Understand which workers consume too much energy;
  • Monitor the workers’ problems (for instance, too frequent overheating) and find out how to solve them;
  • Detect devices with too low hashrate;
  • Fully understand the situation on the farm (or farms), even if you have a lot of devices.

Statistics on account
On the screenshots below you can see the examples of the Hive OS statistics. In the context of a farm, you can assess the overall situation and energy consumption:

Statistics on the account also include hashrate by algorithms, so you can identify how effective specific algorithms are (and then increase your profits by choosing those of them that bring the most income).

In addition to farm statistics, it also provides the following data on workers:
  • Temperature;
  • Hashrate by algorithm (or algorithms);
  • Energy consumption;
  • Fan speed.

As you can see, on this screen the level of electricity consumption remains almost unchanged. This means that the devices work stably and do not consume too much power. The temperature is also within normal limits. But regarding the hashrate by algorithms, not all the workers are equally effective.

Take a look at one more example with Hiveon ASIC S9:

OS provides statistics on your workers so that you can always find and solve any problems related to the operation and efficiency of your equipment in time.

Public statistics

Now the first place among coins is taken by ETH — 61% of users mine it. The second most popular coin is Nicehash-Ethash (8%), and the third one is ETC (7%). Please note that ETH is the most profitable coin, which explains its high rating.

Algorithms (GPUs)
According to the Hive OS statistics, ethash leads by a large margin — 77%. In second place is sha256, 6%. The third most popular algorithm is kawpow (4%).

GPU brands
Both AMD and Nvidia cards are popular. Most miners (57%) prefer AMD. Nvidia takes second place with 43%.

AMD models
The first place is taken by Radeon RX 580 8GB — 22%. The second one — by Radeon RX 570 4GB (21%). In third place is Radeon RX 470 4GB (14%), and in fourth and fifth — Radeon RX 580 4GB and Radeon RX 570 8GB, 12% each.

Previously, this rating included the RX 550 / 560 cards with 2GB of memory, but now these cards are practically not in demand due to their non-universality.

Nvidia models
The first place is occupied by P106–100 6GB (23%), the second one — by GeForce GTX 1070 8GB (13%), and the third one — by GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (11%). The fourth and the fifth places are taken by GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB and GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, 11% and 7% respectively.

With a good value for money ratio, the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB was once Nvidia’s leading card, with a 25% rating. But now its popularity has fallen by more than three times. Why? Due to the lack of memory, these cards cannot mine the most profitable coins (ETH and ETC).

Analyzing modern algorithms and prospects, it can be assumed that cards with 4GB of memory are going to be the next to leave. This is relevant to both Nvidia and AMD cards and means that you should already focus on options with a larger memory capacity (8GB or more).

Miners (GPUs)
At the moment, the most popular miner is phoenixminer — 37% . The second place is taken by claymore (36%), and the third one — by asicminer (6%).

ASIC models
As for ASICs, the leader is Antminer S9. The second place is occupied by Antminer L3+. In third place is Antminer T17.
