The Ore Sniffer is a block that scans the area around it and marks the ore and minerals for you. When you place it down, it scans a 13x13x13 area around it. You can also configure what to display when you right click on the Ore Sniffer. (Toggle the ores/materials on and off, as well as distance). Everything should work fine on SMP.
