Hmmm, looks like it's almost time to take a break while waiting for the BFL 60 -- or at least get a Raspberry hooked up.  Profitability after energy cost on my FPGAs is down to a couple bucks a day.

What is the reason for invalid rounds?

Today I had a hour and half long round end up invalid so it's not such a huge deal but I have also seen a 4 hour long round going invalid. That's a good chunk of the day gone bad.

I'm not complaining, I just want to know what happens and why a round ends up invalid and what is the justification of it?

We all don't know...most of the time it gets valid eventually, so let's wait, but sometimes you are hours busy with mining and it ends up invalid...that's not nice

I switched about 90% of my miners to a different pool today while all this gets straightened out.  I've mind for 2.5 years with slush, and kept about 10% still here now to see how it behaves, but have been bothered with the shares being marked invalid, then back to valid later (in the good cases).

I'm sure it is nothing, but just didn't want to take the chance.

I see. I never check back to see if invalids turn valid again but I'll check this time. Thanks for sharing the info.

Though 253746 is showing invalid on the Pool page, it is valid for Slush on Blockchain.  Happening a lot lately -- must be a bug in the server code.

Why do some rounds take 4 hours while others take 7 minutes? Isn't difficulty a set rate and typically I see pool's power either the same or higher. So why does it differ so much? Is this a pool dependant thing or just Bitcoin?

Solving a bitcoin block is basically a lottery - the first pool to return a valid hash of difficulty greater than or equal to the difficulty level "wins" the block.   Since there are multiple pools (and solo miners) each time one of them solves a block and returns it, everyone has to start over attempting to solve the next block, and the lottery starts all over again.     

Now hanging out on Atomic-Trade.com...

I get it. So one round is more than one block I suppose. Bigger the pool, better chance of solving it fast?

Yeah, one round is the length of time it takes for our specific pool to find a new block.  Can take 6 minutes sometimes and 6 hours others.  Our luck has been bad today unfortunately =(.  You're correct!  The more people hashing away, the greater the probability of our pool finding a new block. The reward however is lessened and distributed amongst more miners.

Hmm... my reward for round 19746 is about half of its normal value. How about you?

I bet my Avalons didn't stop mining.

I'm new here and to mining so maybe a n00b question but why does Slush's pool consistently show a lower average hash rate then my cgminer readout?

It was correct up until I got above 9gh now @ 12gh slush's pool consistently reports 10gh-11gh... cgminer has it @ 11.95 to 12.3 @ all times while the 5s average has a big swing in which the lowest hash rate seems to be the one recorded as THE average on slush's pool.

Normal?

Slush, Is there any problems with the pool? Im getting high pings and its not on my end.  It causes my miners to go idle very frequently. Ive done a quick trace route and output is below. Looks like on last 7 hops are around 100ms which is too high.

Could you look into that please?
