Limitations of Scope
The following features are possible on ethOS, but must be done without the support of ethOS developers or staff. Performing the below actions should be done at your own risk.
- CPU Mining and ASIC Management.
- Mining via getwork over the Internet (causes loss of work due to latency, packet loss, and stale shares).
- Solo-mining (requires downloading the blockchain and running a node on another system).
- Wireless networking (causes packet loss, regardless of operating system, especially in large deployments).
- GUI-based rig management (all required management is done through config files).
- Dual mining mutiple coins (causes instability, extra power use, and possible melted/damaged components).
- Dual-PSU systems (if any issue is resolved by using a single PSU, it is a hardware problem).
- Multi-Algo Switching (causes 10-20% chance of failure during switches, due to GPU crashes and power fluctuations).
- Mining coins below the “Top 30” minable coins list on CoinMarketCap (low-volume coins can crash quickly).
- VBIOS Flashing (has the potential to brick GPUs).
- Self-regulating reboots (does not fix any hardware, software, or configuration problem).
- Installing on HDDs or USB 2.0 drives (slow bootup may cause management script errors).
- Mining on Enterprise-Class GPUs (high cost/hash ratio GPUs will never ROI).
- Mixing AMD/NVIDIA in the same rig (they use different drivers that cannot work together).
- At least 8gb USB 3.0 / HDD / SSD
- 64-bit system
