I need to find the command that lets me check my hash rate from monero-wallet-cli. Further, what is considered a good hash rate? I am running 2 threads.

The daemon mines, the wallet does not. The command to start mining from the wallet is a convenience function, which merely asks the daemon to start mining, and there is no convenience function to ask for hash rate reporting.

In the daemon, you can check hash rate either with show_hr as Guest said, or status. show_hr will continuously log hash rate, while status is a one off.

When using the GUI wallet, the daemon hash rate is reported in the "Mining" tab.

Hello I assume you mining with the daemon (wallet) then show_hr is the command
