1. Your minerstat plan

Before you are able to set up workers, you need to make sure that you have enough workers in your plan. We should point out two things.

- Billing and payments

2. Profile organization

There are different ways you can organize your minerstat profile in regard to what is the purpose of your mining farm. If you are using it on your own, you will only need to learn about setting things up from one profile. But, if you also have customers, we suggest you take advantage of a special feature that allows you to add customers.

3. Adding workers

If you have a larger operation (50 or more workers), we suggest you take advantage of our bulk add solutions to save time with adding workers. Bulk add is available on this link directly or through the workers’ list (click on Add new worker and then on Bulk add).

4. Installing software

Installing the software on multiple rigs can be a long procedure. Here are some hints that can help you make it faster.

Linux mining

You can flash Linux mining OS image on multiple USBs at once. When you do, don’t forget to change config.js files on each USB and enter the correct access key and worker’s name. There are different tools that allow you this - even Etcher or ImageUSB.

Windows mining

Instead of downloading the installer, download a portable version of Windows mining software and just copy/paste it to all of your Windows rigs.

5. Worker’s configuration

To update your worker’s config, we suggest you follow the next steps.

  1. Navigate to the worker’s config page.
  2. Select the workers you want to update.
  3. If you will change the mining client don’t forget to first change the Default mining client and then scroll down to update the mining client’s configs. You are able to click on the wallets and pools tags and replace them with the tags you defined in the first step. You can also paste your own configs and not use tags at all.
  4. Don't forget to save changes.

6. Overclocking and undervolting

The minerstat dashboard allows you to define your overclocking and undervolting profiles to achieve the best speeds and power consumptions on your rigs. Navigate to ClockTune page and create profiles you would like to use.

7. Monitoring settings

To assure your mining operation is running without interruptions, you can set up alerts and triggers. With alerts, you can monitor the following events on e-mail, Telegram, or your mobile app.

  • When the worker goes offline;
  • When the worker comes back online;
  • Hashrate drop;
  • Efficiency drop.

8. Profit switch

If you want to set up a profit switch for your rigs, we suggest you to first set it up on one and to set 2 or 3 coins for start. When you see that the profit switch is correctly in place and working, you can save the same settings of other workers by first loading the worker that already has the profit switch set to load the page with its settings. Then adding other workers to the target list and saving the changes for them.
