Hi all! I'm new around here! (as you can probably tell by my post count). I've been doing this for two days now. In the first 24hrs, I had 1 stale, and in the last 10 or so hours I've had 30. Is this normal? My overall stale percentage is only .33, but I was just wondering. Does it have something to do with pool volume? It seems to me, that during "peak" hours is when it's at it's worst.
I've read in another post somewhere that a .33% stale rating is near perfect, and above .40% is getting high.

This kind of thread should go in the mining section.

Anywhere below 1% is fine. Stale shares happens mainly when you are still working on a block that has just been solved by another miner.

My bad. Huh Close if necessary!
I know what causes the stales, it was just that there were almost none in the first day, and a bunch, seemingly excessive in the second. w/e

Variance n stuff. Don't over think it, you're still below problematic levels.
