This guide applies to all ANTMINER models.
When you log into your miner’s web interface and open the Miner Status page, you might see many unfamiliar abbreviations and numbers. This guide aims to explain these abbreviations and figures to give you a better understanding of what the Miner Status page is telling you.
The “Summary” Section
In this section, you will find a summary of the miner’s overall performance.
- Elapsed: This indicates how long the miner has been running. For example, 17 days, 16 hours, 8 minutes, and 51 seconds. Note: a miner takes about 20 minutes to start running stably.
- GH/S (RT): This denotes your miner’s real-time hash rate.
- GH/S (avg): This refers to your miner’s average hash rate during the elapsed time. Note that different miner models have different hash rates.
- FoundBlocks: This is the number of blocks that your miner has helped the pool to solve.
- LocalWork: This signifies the work available to your miner from the mining pool.
- Utility: This is the number of shares/contributions your miner submits per minute.
- WU: Stands for Work unit.
- BestShare: This shows the difficulty value corresponding to the lowest hash value that your miner has put out so far.
The “Pools” Section
This section provides details about the mining pools you’re connected to.
- URL: This is your mining pool server address.
- User: This is your mining pool’s worker name.
- Status: Indicates pool status. “Alive” means the miner can connect to the server. “Dead” means the miner is unable to connect to the server. As long as one of the statuses is “Alive”, no action is required.
- Diff: This denotes mining difficulty.
- Accepted shares: These are the works submitted by your worker that the pool accepted.
- Discarded: These are shares that were never submitted to the pool.
- Stale: This is the work that your miner submitted for a block that was already solved.
- LSDiff and LSTime: Last Share Difficulty and the time since the last share.
- DiffA#: Difficulty of the last “A”ccepted share.
- DiffR#: Difficulty of the last “R”ejected share.
- DiffS#: Difficulty of the last “S”tale share.
The “ANTMINER” Section
This section offers specific details about the miner’s hardware.
- Chain#: This is the chain number of the control board connected to a hash board.
- ASIC#: This is the number of working chips on a connected hash board.
- Frequency: This denotes the hash board frequency.
- GH/s (ideal): This is the ideal or expected hash rate.
- GH/s (RT): This is the real-time hash rate.
- HW: These are HW errors or faults, which are normal and expected in a good working miner.
- Temp chip: This indicates the ASIC chip’s temperature.
- Temp PCB: This represents the PCB temperature.
- ASIC status: “0” indicates a normal status. If you see an “X”, it means that a certain chip is not working.
- Fan: This shows the fan speed at rpm.
Understanding the information on the Miner Status page is crucial to monitor your miner’s performance and troubleshooting potential issues. Now that you’re equipped with this knowledge, you can confidently manage your ANTMINER.
