Mining Overlord is a Python based program that periodically tests to see if a mining application (like cgminer or bfgminer) has stopped responding. This programs sole purpose it to maximize up-time for crypto coin mining operations. If it detects a non-response, it will restart the application automatically. It also features a configurable restart timer that automatically kills and relaunches the mining process at a set interval.

This program is cross-platform compatible and has been tested on:
Windows XP/Vista/7
Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 and Raspian)
Mac OS 12.04

It requires that Python 2.7.3 or above be installed on the host to run.

Currently, Mining Overlord only supports installations where one instance of the mining software is running.
