Why does a miner need the Hive OS operating system?

Why does a miner need an operating system? Everything is simple — it greatly simplifies the mining process itself and the management of ASICs and GPU rigs (which is especially important if you have a large farm), helps to increase the efficiency of devices and solves many different problems like accidental hardware reboots.

Sounds interesting? Sure. Considering your mining needs, the Hive OS operating system was created. Take a look at its main characteristics: 

  • With Hive OS you can monitor the hashrate, temperature of your devices, power consumption, statuses of each device, and so on.
  • You can also apply various functions in bulk, and send commands to thousands of devices at once.
  • Hive OS allows you to create a schedule to automatically execute commands, change wallets or pools, and so on.
  • Hive OS can be launched with a few clicks.
  • Devices can be sorted, grouped and filtered.

And now take a look at the most useful features of Hive OS in a little more detail.

Overclocking of devices

In simple words, overclocking is "pushing" the hardware out of the factory settings for better productivity and increased revenue. Overclocking can also be used to reduce power consumption. Using Hive OS, you can create overclocking profiles and, in this way, improve your devices.

RX Boost

With the help of the RX Boost function, you can achieve maximum speed when mining with memory intensive algorithms on AMD RX 400/500 video cards (the Polaris family).

Integration of miners

Hive OS supports the most popular miners, but if the option you want is still not on the list, you can integrate it yourself.

Hashrate watchdog

Hive OS will independently track the performance of your ASICs or GPU rigs — you won’t have to spend your time on this. If the efficiency of one of the devices drops, the watchdog is triggered. The device restarts and returns to the desired performance level.

Temperature control

With Hive OS you can easily control the temperature of your devices. First of all, even if you have hundreds of devices, you can easily monitor all of them at the same time — this is possible thanks to the heatmap. If one of the workers gets close to the critical temperature, you will immediately notice this.

Secondly, in Hive OS, apart from the hashrate watchdog, there is also a temperature watchdog. If the hardware reaches a critical temperature, this watchdog reboots the system or stops the mining process.

Thirdly, to prevent critical temperatures, Hive OS ensures automatic fan control so that your workers' temperatures are always kept at the right level.

Process automation

With the Scheduler function you can create various events (for example, command execution, application of an overclocking profile, and so on). Then, by selecting an event and setting up the time and frequency of repetition, you can automate some of the mining processes.


With the help of the Hive OS statistics you can easily monitor your hardware and track the performance of your devices at different algorithms, temperatures, and so on. In addition, Hive OS will provide you with statistics on electricity consumption both for the entire farm and for each individual device.

Notifications in Telegram and Discord

With Hive OS you'll always know what's going on with your devices — this is possible thanks to the notifications that you can receive both in Telegram and Discord. What events can you receive notifications about? Critical errors, poor performance, and so on — you will be aware of all important events.

But, of course, these are not all the useful functions of Hive OS — in this article were described the most important and popular ones. You can find out more here.
