Do you support hardware watchdogs?

Yes, on our dedicated mining OS we support hardware watchdogs, which will reboot your rig in different critical situations that can be solved with a reboot, but the reboot command cannot be sent from the minerstat dashboard as the machine is not syncing with it anymore. Such situations can happen:

  • On total system crash with frozen screen;
  • On kernel panic;
  • If the machine is not mining, the agent reboots it, but if there is no syncing, the watchdog will reboot the machine.

We currently support the following hardware:

  • ANPIX USB WatchDog 5131:2007;
  • domybest USB Watchdog 1a86:7523;
  • ALLOYSEED USB Watchdog 0471:2379;
  • Open-dev USB Watchdogs.

A model number can be validated with lsusb command.

If you own a watchdog that isn’t on the list of supported hardware, you can get in touch with us and we will add support for it.
