To check that your miner is configured correctly, you should look for the following clues:
Miner is submitting shares in the mining software. For most of the miners, the submission rate should be around 1 share every 2-3 seconds.
Your Scoring Hash Rate on your Dashboard is a non 0 value.
You see block rewards on the Statistics page for every closed round (solved block). This may be zero if you stopped mining during the round.
