[Question] How can I use a Raspberry Pi 3B+ or 4 to obtain ASIC data

Mon May 17, 2021 1:23 am

Hey guys,

I got myself an old ASIC miner just for fun, an AntMiner S9, and I was wondering if there's any way to set up a Raspberry Pi 3B+ or 4, to gather status from the miner? status like, hash rate, active / inactive, and other possible data that could be gathered.

I've been playing around the log files in the ASIC html page itself and it provides logs that would look like a dmesg report from a linux computer. Which leads me to believe it's a linux system, and if so, it may be accessible. The system itself has an old firmware and It wasn't upgraded to the firmware from 2019 that blocks ssh transmissions... I have successfully ssh'd into it... I just don't know exactly what to look for.

I was hoping more experienced fellas could help out here?

Thanks in advance!

Never actively done anything with them but the O/S they run is based on https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer and that had an API with lots of options.

Maybe try those on your version?

Unfortunately, these things are now more expensive than my heating system to run so the whole idea got dropped years ago...
Is a computer language with goto's totally Wirth-less?
