It does what you mentioned in the last section of your second to last post.

https://github.com/generalfault/stratum-mining/blob/master/conf/config_sample.py

scroll down to the Pool Difficulty Settings

It actually checks every 300 secs to see if the miner is doing at least one share per a 30 seconds. Was on a phone before when I posted, so sorry for not meeting the aggressive citation and link checking for your needs.

The sample configuration file you're mentioning reveals that the software you're pointing to can be set to do dynamic difficulty setting in the way that it seeks to obtain one share each 30 s from the client and does check/retarget every 300 s.
(It than checks whether the client sends approximately one share per 30 seconds, with a preset tolerance. Tolerance both up and down. That is, not "if the miner is doing at least one share per a 30 seconds".)

I've not seen any mention of Slush's pool using dynamic difficulty, however. In the list "Comparison..." that I've mentioned, Slush's pool is listed as "User", which I understand the way that only the user (client) can set the share difficulty used.

So my opinion continues to be that this (dynamic difficulty and any accompanying time intervals) doesn't apply to Slush's pool.

BTW, I've met nothing about the first 30 seconds after connection, that had started this thread, on the way.

bahhh... I hate crappy luck.  Like a few others have mentioned, I just upped my hashing power with some erupters but thanks to this slump, im not seeing much of a return.  Oh JOY!  Roll Eyes

So, isn't there a bug when this appears regularly?
Eg. some clients trying to send shares with bad nbits or whatever (I know this looks like nonsens Smiley, well simply shares [edit]of high enouhg difficulty[/edit] that are unacceptable as blocks for some reason),  so doing unusable work?
Do very long rounds appear after retargetting at other pools also?

Could be a problem with the pool - from my experience tho' slush is usually on things like a rash.

We do seem to have bad luck after a big diff increase - people panick and switch pools for a few days while the hard core carry on. Then things get back to normal for another 8 or 9 days. Then it starts again with another diff increase.

I'm blaming it on the 4Th/s that abandoned us after the Difficulty increase. I don't think it should affect Luck, but it sure feels like it does. I mean with less mining, you are bound to find fewer blocks.

I hope and pray that the 4 Th/s never comes back ever again. It vanished after causing the difficulty to skyrocket. I am sure the pool luck will improve in the hours to come.

huh? i really doubt that they stopped mining, i suspect that they just moved to a competing pool, or went private. Unknown keeps growing. I'm pretty sure that they are still affecting difficulty.

It just moved to another pool is all -- difficulty would've gone up no matter where they were mining, and it would be nice to have them back with us.

It has nothing to do with it. coincidence that's all. that 4TH worth of computing power jumped pool because of bad luck in the first place.
