I have a some older technology Getwork miners working through a Stratum Proxy hashing on Slush.  Running around 50 to 70 GH combined

I had one recent round, 21228, where I had no reward for any shares.  What is up?  The value formula indicates the reward should have been 0.0013 BTC.  "The reward earned by a given user is given by the following formula:
(25 BTC + block fees - 2% fee) * (shares found by user's workers) / (total shares in current round)"

Not much loss but it seems like something is wrong or I don't understand the BTC reward algorithm, or I don't undestand reward reporting.

It happened again.  I can see that I mined all the way through round 21233.  Never switched to the backup pool.  My shares for round 21233 are proportionally correct for the duration of the block.  No apparent dropouts from the Stratum Proxy.  Every thing looks correct except BTC reward for Round 21233 is ZERO!.  What's up with that?  Again, very little lost but it should have given me at least 0.0025 or so BTC for that round.  Something wrong with this one.  The exponential decay function could not have zero'ed my shares which were 1/10,000 of the total.  1/10,000 of 25 BTC is 0.0025, not zero.

What kind of hardware? Blades? Wondering if there's a problem with the Stratum proxy... I'm not getting 0 rewards but I am seeing my miners get skimmed on their reported hash.

When you look on your account page are the hashes reported accurate to what your miners show locally??

When you look on your account page are the hashes reported accurate to what your miners show locally??

Running 2 AsicMinerCubes:  For example, available in groupbuy here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=375247.0.  Each cube running as a separate worker.

Running Slush Stratum Proxy on local PC which looks to be running fine.

Hash rate reported on Slush pool stats for the two cubes agrees with hash rate reported locally on the cubes and the hash rates indicate the units are running at top speed, no lagging.  I am getting top rated performance from each of the cubes.

If there was a problem with the Stratum Proxy on round 21233 then it corrected pretty quickly since I got the correct ratio of My Shares vs. Total Shares, i.e. similar ratio compared to the other two long duration rounds that did reward BTC. 

Round 21231:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  Paid out
Round 21233:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  No Reward
Round 21234:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  Paid out

If there was a problem with the Stratum Proxy on round 21233 then it corrected pretty quickly since I got the correct ratio of My Shares vs. Total Shares, i.e. similar ratio compared to the other two long duration rounds that did reward BTC.  

Round 21231:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  Paid out
Round 21233:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  No Reward
Round 21234:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  Paid out

This is simply not true.
More exact ratios your/total look like this:

21231 0.000140854
21232 0.000145024
21233 0.000094876
21234 0.000093542
21235 0.000155251
21236 0.000140362

You can see a dropout at the end of 33 and begining of 34. That is the reason.

[edit]
Mining must have been out for about 1.5 hours at the end of 21233 and ~4 hours at the beginning of the following round.

Running 2 AsicMinerCubes:  For example, available in groupbuy here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=375247.0.  Each cube running as a separate worker.

Running Slush Stratum Proxy on local PC which looks to be running fine.

Hash rate reported on Slush pool stats for the two cubes agrees with hash rate reported locally on the cubes and the hash rates indicate the units are running at top speed, no lagging.  I am getting top rated performance from each of the cubes.

If there was a problem with the Stratum Proxy on round 21233 then it corrected pretty quickly since I got the correct ratio of My Shares vs. Total Shares, i.e. similar ratio compared to the other two long duration rounds that did reward BTC.  

Round 21231:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  Paid out
Round 21233:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  No Reward
Round 21234:  Roughly 1:10,000   My Shares to Total Shares,  Paid out

This is simply not true.
More exact ratios your/total look like this:

21231 0.000140854
21232 0.000145024
21233 0.000094876
21234 0.000093542
21235 0.000155251
21236 0.000140362

You can see a dropout at the end of 33 and begining of 34. That is the reason.

[edit]
Mining must have been out for about 1.5 hours at the end of 21233 and ~4 hours at the beginning of the following round.

Case solved.  I believe you are correct sir!  Must be something still wrong with my Stratum Proxy. 

The exponential decay function was a killer making the first 2/3 of that round worthless to me because I missed the last 1/3.    On the next round, missing the first 1/3 did not seem to cost me anything in payout.   Makes me think I could have missed the first 2/3 of that round and still received roughly the same payout.

The exponential decay function is a hard master, punishing those who miss the end of a round and rewarding of those who work the end of a round.

My shares for round 21233 are proportionally correct for the duration of the block.

Yes, that's why it was implemented - (IF) you are a pool hopper you loose almost immediately.

It's not 1/3 or 2/3 of the round - it's a matter of ~20-30 min, so for a 11h round you may miss 10:30 of it and get the full reward (joining at the end) or miss the last 6% of it and loose all the reward you had

Why is it that I make 10-20% more on SHORTER rounds?

But the hash rate or the pool is the same? Are the rewards not assigned based on hashing power?

Shorter rounds increase variance since you'll get fewer shares in and each share is worth more.

Have you noticed this increase over only a few short rounds (say, less than ten) or over many short rounds (lets say more than 20)? Also, how are you defining short? 0.01 x network difficulty, or 0.1  x network difficulty, or something else?

Our luck is horrible lately. Will we hit a point where this horrible luck becomes the new "normal"? I would think whatever it benchmarks against will adjust because we've been seeing longer rounds for a few days now.

Well, the 30 day average is still at 97%, so it isn't off by that much in the longer term. 

Don't worry... it will come back.  It always does.

Your share of the reward per round has dropped with an increase in the pool hashrate, but you can expect more rounds per unit time. Your expected reward per day is unaffected by pool size, only by your hashrate and the network difficulty.

Definitely makes sense to expect more rounds per unit of time with more power behind the pool, however, that is clearly not how things are playing out in the real-world.

I agree that it's been frustrating to see the round times take so long lately, but I'm not sure how that may be a fault of a pool - other than the overall hashrate...which we'd all have to pay for out of our rewards (as we've seen) if it's as high as some of the other pools. I've been watching who has been finding blocks and it's consistently three other pools that keep popping up over the past few hours (Eligius found three in 8 minutes about 40 minutes ago!! But twice the hash rate as Slush). I've found though that it kind of ebbs and flows and we get into a lucky streak from time to time as well. I have occasionally wondered what the difference would be between mining here and mining at another pool. I suspect it might average out, but I have no way of knowing for sure. I also suspect that if someone else had tried to figure that out themselves, but is reading this now, then they probably didn't see an advantage with sticking with another pool.

Anyone have any intel/data/info on that?

I think it's exactly what it seems to be: exceptionally bad short-term luck. After sitting through this many bad days I do expect things to turn around, and for that reason I'm not considering other pools as an option. It eventually has to normalize, but this is certainly one hell of a crappy run.

@InfiniteGrim - In what timeframe? Mine have dropped slightly over the past two weeks, but nothing like that!

@J_Dubbs, I agree.
