Current Version


The current version is the first relay version of Dredge Control and has the version number 0.7

An overview of the previous range of functions can be found below see link

Dredge Control was developed to control and monitor crypto-miner software on a console basis.
Dredge Control provides the framework for digital mining work. It doesn't matter if the Miner works solo or pool.
Comparable to pictures in a museum, the frame is Dredge Control and the pictures are the console based Miner.as: "Ethminer, Claymore Miner, CCMiner, ZM etc."


Important: I do not favour a miner, everyone is treated equally. So if your mining software is not listed by name, it doesn't matter.

At the moment the monitoring data evaluation (hash rate, runtime, GPU´s etc.) is limited to the Ethminer, which will change with the next versions. Then there will be several Miner Profiles and after configuration of the Miner file the corresponding profile for the evaluation will be stored in Dredge Control, so that not only all console-based Miners can be controlled by Dredge Control, but also monitored.
Monitoring the mining process is extremely important to avoid downtime and mining revenue losses.
Depending on the configuration, the mining software is controlled manually or automatically after starting Dredge Control.

The console outputs (internal or external) monitor the following things:

Is there a connection to the network?
Is the mining software working?
The runtime of the mining software.
