What is APMinerTool?

APMinerTool - is a mining farm monitoring software that can scan multiple LAN IP segments at the same time and can monitor ASIC operation status in batch. The software supports alert settings, IP ranges, firmware, etc.

Features

  • Batch monitoring of the state of the ASIC.
  • Mass configuration of devices (in batches).
  • Firmware update (in batches).
  • Batch restart.
  • Supports simultaneous scanning of multiple IP segment miners on the local network.

How to setup APMinerTool

Step 1 - Download the program

Download the program from the official source - antpool website. apminertool_download

Extract the archive with the program to any folder. apminertool_zip

Double click on the file APMinerTool.exe to open the software. apminertool_files

Step 2 - Run IP Scanner

First thing you need to do is find the IP of your ASIC. This can be done in this program, or you can use a lighter utility - IP Reporter.

Click "Start Scan" and then press and hold the "IP report" button on each ASIC for 3-5 seconds to start adding devices.

After you connected the device to the network and power supply, the IP obtained during the device setup is in DHCP mode and the IP address is not fixed. If you have many devices, you can set fixed IP addresses in batch mode for easy management.

Example: the router assigns a mode DHCP: 101-254. Just click the "start scan" button.

The scan will take about 30 seconds. When it is complete, a window should appear informing you that the process is complete: apminertool_finished

The utility will display information about what it found. apminertool_list

Enter the static IP address you want to set for the miner in the next fill IP field:

apminertool_set_ip

Step 3 - Configure the utility

Enter the pool address and password in batch mode in the "Pool Configuration" section.

apminertool_pool_address

In the "Worker" field, select the name of the worker (for tracking statistics. The name can be anything. For example, "Antminer"). In the field on the right, select the type of coin to be mined.

Check out the list of available devices. The important part here is that you can see which devices are out of order due to the high temperature.

Troubleshooting

Does not work?

Follow the five-step ASIC troubleshooting guide:

  1. Check your network or internet connection.
  2. Check or reset your router or switch.
  3. Check miner’s network configuration and IP conflicts.
  4. Reboot the miner.
  5. Repair control board or reset to factory settings.

Does the software not see the ASIC?

In such cases, resetting the settings on the miner and in the router helps.

How do I restore factory settings? If you need to restore factory settings for a specific device, you can click the “Reset” button, a pop-up window will appear with a hint, click “Ok”.
