Mining Logs

Here is the plan:

 - Every miner creates a log file
 - Collect all log files on your webserver
 - Analyse and display log files

Enable logging in /etc/rc.local

 /root/veriumMiner/cpuminer -o bla -u blabla --no-color >> /root/veriumMiner/verium_hostname.log &

by piping ( >> ) the output to a file. Better use the option --no-color .

SSH into the webserver. Before you can automatically collect all the logs, create a ssh key without a password.


Just hit return, don't enter a password!

Then copy the ssh key to each miner

 ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/ [email protected]

Configure the user and IP and here you have to enter the password for it.

Now create a shell script


and enter a line for every miner like

 rsync -avze ssh [email protected]:/root/veriumMiner/verium_hostname.log /wwwhome/verium_hostname.log

then don't forget to make it executeable

 chmod +x

Now you can do as much statistics with the log files as you like using php webscripts or maybe a perl script.


Temperature Logging

On the Odroid I find its temperature here

 sudo cat /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp

but this file cannot be copied directly by rsync.

So we set up a cron job to execute a script


with a couple of these lines (you might want to take a few samples)

 cat /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp >> ~/hostname.temp
 sleep 1

and make it executeable.

 chmod +x

Create the cronjob by

 crontab -e

and add the line # m h dom mon dow command

  • /10 * * * * /root/

Now we collect the temp logs along with the others

 rsync -avze ssh [email protected]:/root/hostname.temp /wwwhome/verium_hostname.temp
