I have a question about running bitcoin in server mode. I have about 3 computers running as miner and currently I have allocated 1 to be the server. Would running this be the same as running 3 individual bitcoin in server mode for each computers? Reason being that they remain independent and should anyone go down ie. the server, the rest will still be able to mine. I am more concern about the robustness of the setup rather then the convenience of check 3 separate wallets.

Cheers!

If you're concerned about the server dying then perhaps you should have 3 separate wallets. Or a more robust server. Smiley

So are you saying that it doesn't affect the probability of mining a block when using 3 independent server compared to 1 server?

Your 3 miners will keep mining as long as they are up and communicating with a bitcoind (or mining pool) server that has network access. The probability of finding a block is no different.

No, if your server goes down the other 2 will not get any work to do.
but if you run 3 separate servers they will be competing with each other even if they each have a copy of the same wallet.
It's best to have the server be a stable non-mining machine or use a pool
I would personally connect to 3 pools and if one goes down the others could pick up the slack.

How about running separate wallets/bitcoin -server individually? Will that affect the probability and hence worst than 1 main server?

yep, they will be competing with each other by working separately on the same block.

I'd like to see how this guy got a block with only 1.5MH/s ...

Was mining for 2 days... Lucky?



You wont be competing against your self, you'd be rolling 3 dice at different times, instead of all 3 at once, none will prevent another from succeeding

None will prevent another from succeeding but each on its own has less chance than all 3 working together.
this is why mining pools work.
