Author Topic: Mining on two pools as a load balancer  (Read 1468 times)

Hello everyone,

as the us server of eligius is currently down, I was thinking about what the best way is to implement a load balancer.

I thought the easiest way would be to start 2 mining tools on 2 different pools. The hashrate per miner would then equally distributed on two pools, but as one pool goes offline, the hashrate on the other pool would then go to 100%.

Is there anything wrong with that approach. Are there any other advantages of multiple mining (I currently only have one gpu) or am I missing something and that is actually a really bad idea?

I am running 2 miners on one card pointed to eu and us eligius servers, but only phoenix or phatk miners can split gpu power 50:50

Just tried on Diablo miner, and it's a big no no, GPU usage drops from 98% to about 80%-90%, and hashing drops even lower.

In the Beginning there was CPU , then GPU , then FPGA then ASIC, what next I hear to ask ....

Running two miners on one GPU works for me as long as I split the hashrate 50-50. If I give one miner the -f60 tag so that the majority of the hash rate goes to one pool my gpu usage drops to 90% and I lose about 10% total hash rate. Any ideas? I would like one primary pool and one backup rather then two pools always with 50%
