We have been working hard on the next generation of the Miner.farm service. Continuously evolving the platform and services based on the needs of miners everywhere. Version 3 is a complete rewrite from the bottom up, including all infrastructure services. The new architecture is scalable, responsive, and dependable. Backward compatible with all existing versions of PiMP, making the most requested new features simply plug and play.
miner.farm 3 preview – account page:
ALL NEW Integrated account management: miner.farm and PIMPOS keys all in one easy to find location, along with a complete history of transactions and changes to your account. We are finally able to bring you total control of your information, keys and farms all in one place!
Accounts will be able to have more than one farm, allowing you to more neatly divide your operation into production and development, or manage multiple farms for different customers. Resellers will be able to build up and transfer farms to their customers (based on additional Resellers package, details TBA!).
PIMPOS Key management is simple and direct. Reset your own key – no more waiting between reimages!
miner.farm 3 preview – farm admin page
Introducing the ALL NEW Farm Admin page, where you can manage settings, agents and configurations for each farm.
In addition to the familiar Subscription information, Preferences settings and Farm Keys panes, the Agent controls have moved here, keeping your main Farm View uncluttered and simplifying control of your rigs. Clicking on one in the list displays a modal with the controls you have today in miner.farm, plus new features tba 🙂
A new Miner Configs tool will be here; it will allow you to import and export configurations from agents to your Library, and edit them as needed. This is a long requested feature in miner.farm, and we are excited to finally be able to bring it to you!
miner.farm 3 preview – miner page:
We have moved the miner controls to an easy to get to panel, and are now displaying power usage per miner! This is valuable information for making crucial mining decisions. You can set a baseline power usage for the rig itself, and it is added to the reported card values. This total is also reported at the agent level in Farm View.
PiMP OS Platform Roadmap
PiMP OS 2.8 is coming, based on the brand new Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver with the latest AMD, NVIDIA, and CUDA drivers. PiMP dev and beta team are working around the clock to smooth out every last bug and provide the stability and worry-free reliability that you have come to expect with PiMP OS.
Currently, PiMP OS offers outstanding hashrates on AMD cards with a simple One Click Strap mod and gputool overclock. For NVIDIA all you need is gputool. This is all included in current versions of PiMP.
Moving forward, we plan to use this kernel+driver platform as the base for 3.0. We will be showcasing upcoming headline features for 3.0 in the coming months. Notably we will be providing a backup/restore feature to make rig deployment even faster and easier. Make sure to check the changelog every couple weeks!

july pimpup preview: gputool gets a lot smarter
gputool gets a makeover with a ton of formatting and guidance prompting, easier to read output, better error checking, human-readable gputool –update, and the centerpiece: you will be able to define your gpus in the gpu-config file based on busid, so your settings can follow the cards when you’re working on your rigs.
