I've been using MT.Red for the last 3 days OK, then all I am getting today is :-

Then I failover to my backup pool.

Anyone know whats up with MT.Red ?

I noticed one weird thing.
Sometimes the pool goes down for hours and when is again up (although I see other users connected) I cannot connect my workers again no matter what I do.
However, if i delete my workers and create them back (using the very same name and password) the pool promptly accepts me back.

I do not mind about pool being down sometimes, I have backup pools for that.
For a single_pool rig MtRed would be terrible, but for a rig with backup pools is just fine.

pa.mtred.com was available just fine during the outtage. I did not lose connectivity to the mtred pool. You just need to make sure your backups are set up correctly Wink

Had no idea, thanks. I am using only Beta though...the other two (Main/PA) are giving me too many rejects.

They need to change the title to this thread, take out the merged mining part. Does anyone get NMC from this? I'm not.

As for reliability, every just SET UP A BACKUP POOL. It seems like most pools tend to go down at some point.

Stratum test on pa.mtred.com:3333

From what i've seen its looking very performant, give it a test and let me know.

Woot! It's running pretty great for me. Looks like it's not updating my stats on the site yet though. Never mind, it's working now. Cheesy

Excellent I'll give it a go and see if it has nailed the high reject problem. Next stop, vardiff!

Is there a method of setting the difficulty or stratum at diff 1 is all there is?

It all has to be implemented on the pool side, be it higher difficulty or variable difficulty, so it's up to redditorrex.

As a followup, the stale rate is markedly lower than it used to be, which is great news since that was the main thing keeping me from mining here. Many stratum disconnects would also be a new problem since shares are lost on each disconnect, but so far there have been no disconnects.

What do disconnects look like in the log? I don't think I've ever seen "Stratum disconnect". So just curious.

A message saying:
Code:

The story so far after a few hours:
Code:
Pool: http://pa.mtred.com:3333
Does not have own long-poll support
 Queued work requests: 253
 Share submissions: 9268
 Accepted shares: 9263
 Rejected shares: 5
 Accepted difficulty shares: 9263
 Rejected difficulty shares: 5
 Reject ratio: 0.1%
 Efficiency (accepted / queued): 3661%
 Discarded work due to new blocks: 499
 Stale submissions discarded due to new blocks: 2
 Unable to get work from server occasions: 1
 Submitting work remotely delay occasions: 0
Reject ratio is a little higher than my regular pool, but that pool is also in my local city so a 50ms ping time whereas mtred is 240ms. However I used to get up to 2% rejects on mtred, which stopped me mining here, so this is a ludicrous improvement. Note there is one "Unable to get work from server occasions". That would have been a disconnect which would then have dropped some shares as mentioned in the previous post. At the moment the stats don't show how many of those shares were lost.

I'm sure current miners moving over to stratum would dramatically lower the server load. Now if higher diff share submission was added, the load on the server would drop even more and be able to tolerate even asic hashrate submissions.

What's with the high discarded work rate?
Normal, with new blocks you don't keep working on it, you throw it out to not create shares from stale work.

Sounds good, should have done it sooner.  I have had to restart it a few times, so thats probably adding a few stales.

I also just replaced the old pushpool server on mtred.com:8837 *the beta port with the new stratum-mining-proxy hotness.

I may also do the same for the main port in a few days, as we are nearing the end redesign of the web frontend.
