    Step 1. Add a miner profile.

    Step 2. Test your config with pimp --test
    Start your miner and connect to the miners output console with the command pimp --test 1 and ensure the miner is performing as you expect. To detach from it, press Control+A, release, then D (the standard 'screen' detach command).

    Step 3. Customize your config file with edit
    Use the edit [filename] command to open a config in an editor and validate your changes.
    For example: edit sgminer.multi.conf

    Use edit without a filename to see a list of available files.
    When you save and exit (if JSON, it will check if the file is correctly formatted JSON and display any errors, if PCFG it will not), then allows you to re-edit if necessary.

    Step 4. Then, test the miner again with your changes by using: pimp --test 1 (or whatever ID you are using right now.)

    Step 5. Assign the rig to your miner.farm account by entering your miner.farm keys.
    By default your agent will show your miners progress on the PIMP farm at
    https://miner.farm/farmer/pimp. You can sign up for a FREE miner.farm account of your own with visual alerting, pool monitoring, reporting and much more for up to 2 miners. To put your agent on your own farm, get your API keys from your miner.farm account page, and enter them in the agent console.

    You can do it using the terminal by using the command: minerfarm -s [shortapikey] -l [longapikey]
    E.g. minerfarm -s slsSIAs -l SDKJksjdkwlzlzxkowosdf

    Or, You can do it using the Agent Console by using the minerfarm command, then pressing c.

    Step 6. Optional: Customize your GPU fans and clocks and power usage by using gputool. For more details about gputool please see the guide here: https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/31/gputool-how-to-overclock-nvidia-and-amd-gpus
