helpmetool is a script that queries your hardware and software for information. This information is then uploaded securely to the PiMP Troubleshooter, another web app from the PiMP family. This will give you all of the information about your system that you need to troubleshoot problems. You can then provide the helpme URL to the page that was uploaded so that your fellow PiMPs can take a look and help you solve your issues.
- Type helpme into the terminal on a PiMP rig.
- Copy the helpme URL from the terminal. (Control-Insert works on most terminals.)
- Paste the helpme URL into your browser and/or the live chat so you can get support.
- Now you can use the PiMP Troubleshooter app to view all of the information about your rig’s hardware, GPUs, PiMP and minerfarm software, services, configurations, logs and status.
Step 5: Find the information that leads you to fix a problem so you can get back to mining.
Note, you can also run the
helpmereport remotely using miner.farm. This will go to the rig, run helpme, and if it completes successfully, provide you the URL right in the Host Hardware Info section on your Farm Admin > Agent View screen.
