Two of the first three threads in this board are about gaining pool redundancy by dubious means.  For the love of all that is holy, use the flexible mining proxy instead.  It does that, and a whole lot more.

Any idea how many workers it can handle on what kind of hardware? The only server I've got access to right now (with access to outside web anyway, which is the feature I want it for) is shared hosting and I don't know what kind of performance I'm likely to get there...

My guess is lots.  I'm running an ancient Athlon XP 1800, and my 5 miners with about 800 Mhash/sec total power don't even make a dent on it.

Still a single point of failure. Only now its the proxy server instead of the pool.

But what if you put a proxy in front of your proxy?

Or additionally created a DNS round-robin for several?

Or what if you had 9 firewalls?

Or.... or... or...  Roll Eyes

Also, single point of failure is directly related to what you're trying to prevent....

Clearly, using your own proxy is not a single point of failure in relation to DDoS against Deepbit.  It's actually a robust system in comparison to one-miner-one-pool.

If your proxy is being DDoSed offline.... you have other issues.

Speculating about the faults of a system by using faults of other unrelated systems is silly. Smiley

Yeah proxy >>>>> no proxy for redundancy/failover.  Calling it a single point of failure is an absurd criticism when you are already configured with a pool that is a single point of failure that is failing VERY often at this point. 

Other single points of failure
1) Your internet
2) the power grid
3) your birth
