Foreman has been updated with the following new features, improvements, and bug fixes:
Two Factor Authentication
Two Factor Authentication has been added to Foreman, providing users with an additional mechanism to further secure their accounts. The settings to enable this can be found here:
Clients can enable this for their company, requiring that all users on the shared dashboard enable Two Factor Authentication for access. This can be found under Company Settings.
The Factory Reset operation has been added to the dashboard, which will revert selected ASICs back to their manufacturer settings and then automatically change pools to the user-defined configuration.
This can be performed directly on a single miner, as a bulk operation, or via a trigger. As of November 2020, it can be performed against the following manufacturers, but this list will continue to be expanded:
When available, the MAC address for an ASIC will be presented on the Foreman dashboard, providing users with an additional method to identify their miners.
What's New Notifications
Curious what's new? See it directly from the dashboard, and get notified when things change:
Whatsminer Firmware Support
Support has been added for the new Whatsminer ASIC firmwares, enabling users to perform reboots and pool changes directly from the Foreman dashboard!
Vnish-based Firmware Support
Official support has been added for vnish-based ASIC firmware, including the Nicehash and AsicDip forks.
Minute of Day Trigger
A new trigger has been created that enables users to trigger an action at a specific time of day (example: change pools to 2miners at midnight, and then change pools to ethermine at 10 AM).
Google Cloud Storage
Foreman applications are now distributed via Google Cloud Storage, which will reduce metrics downtime when updates are being applied.
The backend caching mechanism has been drastically redesigned, greatly reducing API and page loading times.
Gracefully Handle 'nan' Avalon Responses
Avalon ASICs that are not hashing and returning 'nan' for their current hash rate will now successfully be patched to '0', enabling metrics to continue being published to the dashboard.
Automatically Cancel Stuck Commands
Pickaxe remote commands that take more than 60 minutes to complete will now automatically be aborted and marked as failed.
