So I see on the What is a worker? post that a worker is "simply an identifier for you to use so that you can track different machines within your account".
For someone that just started maintaining bitcoin systems for others and only configures the Antiminers I wanted to get some clarification that may help me understand better.
Note: I have not ever registered for a wallet account (e.g. Antminer, etc.) and only maintain a farm for someone else and was given the detail to plug in per each miner.
Correlated sub questions for context to help understand what I'm trying to get my head around here
Is a Worker any random name you make up right then in the Antminer
Workerfield, or do you set these up with your associated Antminer account and then once on the pool start dropping in the names you registered on your account?
I assume once you use one specific Worker name that you will get an error if you try to use that same name on that same pool from another miner device?
The pool is a URL with a port number and the Worker seems to be a private name you use on your account connected to this public URL pool but the Workers in this context are like the private bitcoin miner nodes—if someone else on that same URL pool from another account uses the same Worker name as another account's Worker name, then that does not make any difference—only no duplicates on same account only, right?
