This is monitoring and management platform for GPU mining rig and ASICs. You can see all your rigs in one place, monitor hashrates, online status, GPU errors, reboot them, manage wallets. Overclock AMD and Nvidia GPUs from the web. Based on Linux distribution.

Miners installed: GPUs tested: ASICs tested: Other features: Watchdogs support:
Up to 3 rigs TEST FOR FREE
Price per rig $3
Free rigs are for testing and "home mining". Starting from 4 rigs you PAY FOR ALL 4. E.g. For 4 rigs the price is 4 * $3 = $12 per month, for 20 rigs it's 20 * $3 per month. Please don't create clone accounts as they will be banned.

How to write disk image

In Windows you can use HDD Raw Copy Tool. Also you can find it in "downloads". Alternatively there are Win32 Disk Imager, Etcher, Rufus and others.

Linux and Mac users can use "dd" or any other tool to write RAW image to disk. Something like dd if=hive-xxx.img of=/dev/sdb bs=10M status=progress. But be careful finding out output disk "of", use fdisk -l to list your partitions.

SSDs are much more reliable and advised to use in production environments. If you want your USB flash drive please run logs-off after installation.

Common booting problems forum thread.

Shell Commands

Once you boot you will be able to run some commands.

miner shows running miner screen. miner start | stop starts or stops currently configured miner obviously.

agent-screen shows hive client agent.

selfupgrade manually upgrade hive from repository to the latest version.

hello say hello to server again. To refresh IP addresses, configs etc. Normally it's run on startup.

firstrun -f force rig setup, you will enter ID and password again. Use this if you need to reconfigure rig from start.

wifi to setup WiFi if it's present.

Ctrl+A, D detach from screen, miners or agents so they will be working in background.

Ctrl+C stop any running program, but don't stop miner or agent, instead detach from screen.

How do I connect to the rig

Use ssh user@192.168.0.xxx from Linux or Mac. Windows users can use Putty ssh client. Default password is "1". Once you are in run sudo -s to become root user. Start or stop miners, agent, etc only from root user.

If you prefer graphic UI, VNC server is there for you. Use VNC Viewer or any other VNC client to connect to your IP address vnc://192.168.0.xxx:5900.

There is a Shellinabox server running on the rig. You may open https://192.168.0.xxx:4200/ in browser and access shell from the web.

Default login is user password 1.

And of course you can connect monitor to the first GPU in 16x slot if there some serious problems.

Security forum thread.

I see "HIVE" in console and then blank screen

It seems that you've plugged your monitor to the internal GPU on the motherboard. Please connect it to the first external GPU, which is usually 16x port.

I have AMD and NVIDIA GPUs can I use them at the same time on one rig?

Yes, absolutely. The only thing you need to follow is to put NVIDIA in the first 16x slot as the main GPU. Otherwise the X server will crash and there will be no OC for NVIDIAs.

My cards are without display ports, mining edition.

You still can try iGPU to connect monitor. Or just boot without it and connect through the network, but you'll have to know rig IP (printed at boot time also).

0.5-16 2017-12-25
  • Miner start problem after reboot seems to be resolved. The issue is related to slow flash drives.
  • xorg.conf for Nvidia is generated more wisely now. If you had GPUs with pci ids like 3c:00:0. 8b:00:0 (etc.) this will help you.

0.5-14 2017-12-22
  • dstm 0.5.7
  • Claymore CryptoNote 11.0

  • AMD undervolting now works from panel! Please set core voltage like 900 with DMP desired level.
  • Added cryptonight.usa.nicehash.com and daggerhashimoto.usa.nicehash.com to /etc/hosts because Claymore DevFee could not miner there and crashed
  • ccminer recompiled for event more CPU platforms like old AMD Phenom II
  • ccminer could show hashrate even when GPU was hang, now stats detect this by zero temp on that card
  • amd-info more convenient way to show AMD clocks
  • rocm-smi more another utility for AMD clocks
  • Turn Off LEDs on Nvidias from OC dialog. May not work on some cards.
  • Latest drivers amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261 and NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-387.34. DOES NOT AUTOUPDATE, ONLY WITH NEW IMAGE

  • Fixed bug with non starting miner, overwriting config update upgrade
  • Added EWBF custom settings field
  • Changed behavior on naming rigs. If you had rig named with only numbers like "1", then the WORKER_NAME was prefixed with "hive1". It was confusing so this is not true anymore, it will stay "1".
0.5-01 IMAGE RELEASE "Catdog" 2017-10-27
  • Second miner. You can launch 2 miners at the same time. Maybe you will want CPU miner or separate miners for AMD and Nvidia cards.
  • New miners: ethminer, sgminer-gm, dstm, xmr-stak-cpu.
  • AMD driver 17.40 with DAG fix, OC+downvolt still do not work together. ROCm kernel removed to save space.
  • Nvidia GPU order is now the same as PCI bus id, so order in miner and rig admin is the same now, much easier to overclock
  • Internal GPU detection, now you can use monitor on internal GPU with Nvidias
  • miner will start only after Nvidia OC will be applied
  • miners rotates 5 logs now between restarts so you can examine previous runs
  • Trying to handle nvidia-smi hangs, maybe a reason for agent stop
  • Hive FAT partition will be visible in Windows, some versions had problems

  • ewbf "API bind error" solved, no more "Miner Offline" after restart
0.4-13 IMAGE RELEASE 2017-10-07
  • DAG fix for AMD. New image has dual boot now, kernel 4.10 by default (without fix) and ROCm patched kernel 4.11 (with DAG fix). The down side of fix is that when you set Core or Mem clock then downvolting will NOT work. Though you can flash VBIOS with proper frequencies and set DPM downvolting states from the web.
  • Downgraded AMD drivers to 16.60 for DPM (downvolting) to work.
  • Changed AMD OC power management. Removed Voltage Index and added DPM Core States for downvolting.
  • Added "Tuning" button in rig profile. Now you can override any individual setting from the wallet.
  • Added miner "restart", "last log" and "show config" buttons
  • Motherboard model and kernel version in the rig profile now

  • Force reboot script, helps a lot with hanging GPUs where standard reboot does not work, run sreboot to try
  • Fixed GPU stats order for mixed setups
  • /hive-config is now on FAT partition, you can set ID and pass from your ugly Windows)
  • VNC password is stored in /hive-config/vnc-password.txt now. And you can disable VNC.
  • Added pci=noaer iommu=soft options to grub bootloader, no more flooding errors on the screen. IOMMU motherboards (like GA-970A-DS3P) will work from the box.
