this is a terrible idea on pools that use a score based system.
More or less (for score based: sure.. for the others... maybe, maybe not
)... I'm still in the testing phase, having a look at this pool and that pool... plus I'm testing out a own pushpoold
I'll agree that it probably isn't the best way earning wise. But I'm happy to have a central place where i can steer the miners to a specific pool and not having to log in to every miner and kill/restart them (most of the miners are cpu workers anyway...)
Very cool. A proxy solution is a great idea. Now it just needs to maintain state. I wonder how much extra performance you could eek out by prefetching work in order to feed your nodes a steady, low-latency stream?
Maintaining state with a stateless protocol is somehow... urgs
Still not sure how that can be solved (without restrictions like 'every miner has to have a unique username')
Prefetching sound's like an interesting idea, not sure if (or how much) it makes much sense with the more or less short living data packets? (But since I was thinking about playing around with a queuing backend like it's (probably) used for bitp.it I'll definatly have a look in it)
