I realize that there are already answers to the question, but I don't think they are detailed enough.
For my use case, I have 4-5 gaming PCs, some desktop and some laptop, laying around the house. I would like to create my own pool and put them all to work.
A previous answer states that you simply run geth on a master machine and then run ethminer on your other machines which are pointing to the master. That's great, but how do the other machines know which account they are mining for? Also, is there a way to track productivity on a per-machine basis. I would like to know how much output I am getting from each machine.
Thanks in advance!
