Fan speed percentage can be adjusted, but we recommend keeping the default setting. The server will adjust the fan speed automatically if the fan speed percentage has yet been selected.

2. Set the options according to the following table.

Option

Description

Mining address

Enter the address of your desired pool.

The E9 miners can be set up with three mining pools, with decreasing priority from the first pool (pool 1) to the third pool (pool 3). The pools with low priority will only be used if all higher priority pools are offline.

Name

Your worker ID on the selected pool.

Password

The password for your selected worker.

3. Click Save after the configuration.

IV. Monitoring Your Miner

To check the operating status of your miner (taking E9 151.5T as an example)

1. Click the dashboard marked below to check the miner status.

E9 miner dashboard

Note: The E9 server is with a fixed frequency of 450 MHz. The firmware will stop running when the Temp (Outlet) reaches 80℃, and there will be an error message “over max temp, PCB temp (real-time temp)” shown on the bottom of the kernel log page. Meanwhile, the server temperature on the dashboard interface turns abnormal and shows “Temp is too high.”

2. Monitor your miner according to the descriptions in the following table:

Option

Description

Number of chips
