Better, faster, stronger
I finally managed to put a number of tracking spreadsheets I have into template form. I’ve got four that I use on a regular basis. Download links below.

Ansible Miner Setup
Here we go: an Ansible role for setting up an Ubuntu host as a crypto currency miner.
- XMR + XDN
Looks like CUDA 9.0 on Linux breaks the latest release of ccminer-cryptonight
You want avoid the update for the time being. Trust me.
This is why enterprises don’t immediately upgrade.

Poor Man's GPUs
Pay attention to your thermal envelopes and thermals of whatever you’re running for your mining (CPU/GPU/FPGA/ASIC). You’d be surprised how simply changing the MINER can also affect the thermals of a system.
Turns out swaping the mining software I use on one rig doubles performance because the MINER is more efficient on the GPU.
Lots of variables goes into mining. Pay Attention.
