Well this sucks.

I concur.  Wait, what are we talking about?  It doesn't matter, I still agree.....I think?

All stats re-enabled.  Did a super fancy online index generation on the main shares table.  We're cruisin' again!  The webpage should now be approximately eleventy-thousand times faster.

It is much, much faster now.  Thanks!

lol @ 140Gh in topic, isnt that a prime example of false advertising? Tongue

No, we were at 140ghs.  I can't stay on the forum 24/7 to update the topic.

Hopefully we can get the stats back up, but having the back end working perfectly is definitely more important!

Uhhhhh, whoah!  Thank you to whoever just injected 14GH/s to our pool!

14?  Looks more like 140!!!

We are sitting at 160gh/sec

This pool seems to be nice, and I like the monkey logo Smiley



Thanks!

Hopefully more people feel the same way and we can build our hash rate.  We are built to handle quite a bit more

Site is definitely faster!

Well we were VERY lucky on our first two blocks, so this kind of makes up for it. We've just barely hit the average.

Does it matter if you only have certain times during the day when you can mine?  I'm wondering about using one of the smaller pools, but if I can only contribute for a couple hours here and there during the day, do I still get a portion of the coin if they solved a block while I was not there?

Yes, some pools will penalize you for this as they perceive it to be 'pool hopping'.
12  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [~10GH] Bitcoinmonkey.com (BTC BOUNTY!,LP,PROP,HTTPS,NO FEES!,LOW STALES) on: July 16, 2011, 10:54:25 PM
Good point, I didn't even think about it that way.

It would be nice if we could average out how long a worker takes to submit a single share, add 20% to it, and do an alert system based off of that.  But that's probably way more difficult.
13  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [~10GH] Bitcoinmonkey.com (BTC BOUNTY!,LP,PROP,HTTPS,NO FEES!,LOW STALES) on: July 15, 2011, 02:58:07 AM
I think the shorter you average the worker stats the better so you can pick up on lost miners more quickly.  If you average it out over 30 minutes, that's thirty minutes to 0!  If it's averaged over five you can tell if you have problems sooner.
14  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Bitcoinmonkey.com (LP,HTTPS,NO FEES!,LOW STALES,4BTC BOUNTY!) on: July 14, 2011, 04:47:46 PM
Alright, I added Worker Totals.  For some reason the total MH/s for all workers was looking artificially low, and I suck at math, so I left it out for now.  Also fixed it so that it will still display your shares and stales even if your worker is idle.  The only way you know it's idle is when it says "0 MHashes/s".  I will style that page later on to make it more obvious a worker is idle.  Also, SMS notification of idle workers is on the to-do list, maybe with a small donation % required for the feature, something bitcoinaddict and I have been talking about.

I've noticed this about the worker mh/s rate.  I think it has to to with just random luck, because you may submit a share once every so many seconds with a worker, and lets say in one five minute period you submit 50 shares, but in the next 5 minute period you submit 45 shares, and then after that the next 5 minute period you submit 55 shares.  So in that case you could show anywhere from 95-105% of what you are actually submitting.  I don't know if the variance for a single miner can be that high, I would think it is rather constant, but with network communications involved also, that may be the reason the value fluctuates.  I don't know enough about the technical inner-workings of bitcoin to figure all of that out...

I went to 2 computer stores neither one had pci extender cables

You have to order them, cablesaurus has them or even newegg might still carry them. 
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How can I monitor how hot my video cards/processor are getting? on: July 13, 2011, 03:45:57 PM
I'm sorry, cables?  what do you mean?

He means PCI express extender cables, so you can separate the cards physically instead of having them all stacked on top of each other.  Typically you would do this without a case and you would have to MacGuyver something together to hold the cards in the air or something.

Is it safe to use second PSU to power GPU? Should I turn on PC first and then turn on PSU for GPU? Or in the reverse sequence?

I have a rig that has two 200w PSU's set up this way, i didn't use any fancy connector or anything like that.  I simply shorted the green and black wire on the second PSU to make it turn on, it's connected to the second video card only.  Rig has 2x5770's.  Why waste money on another PSU when you have extras sitting around?  Just make sure that you turn on the second PSU before the main PC, as long as you get it within a second or two you will be fine.  I usually insert my paperclip and then flip the switch on the main PSU, works like a charm.

Yeah, let's hook up an android phone to the server and use some clever programming with the SDK to send out SMS notifications! lol

Pool Update
Blkmond was not doing what it was supposed to do.  I don't know if you monkeys noticed or not, but there probably weren't long polling messages in your logs.  Not a surprise that it wasn't working considering comments from other pool operators.  I have replaced blkmond with a custom python script written by another member here on the boards.  It's working great for me, however it looks like you must restart your miners to get a fresh connection ready for LP pushes.  If you are the type of person who never reboots or has a dedicated rig, do us a favor and restart your miners real quick.  Thanks monkeys!

Good work, now I can work on getting even lower stales!  One percent was just too damn high LOL!

Excellent nice work man.  Yea as for sms I would deffinetly charge a fee or require a certain donation ammount much like btc guild.  The costs of the sms might not be much but they deffinetly add up over time.   Email notification might be something easier to implement as its just a sendmail command which could also charge a fee or donation for, and as many people have smart phones now a days it should suffice as well.   But anyhow no need to worry about that.  Great job on the stats and everything man.  I think it deffinetly bring more transparency to the pool which is what miners like/want.  At least I do.
There is a cool trick for SMS notifications where you just send an e-mail to the wireless provider's special SMS "gateway" or whatever you want to call it.  You would just have to fill out your number and your wireless provider so I could get the To: address correct.  No real cost to us, but a feature we think people would pay a small donation for.  That keeps us at a 0% base fee.

Yes, this is the way I was planning to have it implemented.  Unless we want to hook a cell phone up to the server LOL

Two guys walk in to a bar.  The third one ducks.  Ba-dum-bump.

No need to pay me.  I could really make you laugh if I could figure out how to post a mirror in a forum post......
