I am glad it's understandable ... i am usually accused of being too detailed, which makes it complicated, so i've tried to be short, but yes - there are many more details worth explanation.

Despite his algorithms which are perhaps complicated, Slush's pool invites relaxing. Look how simple his page is. His math is elegant. He updates news almost never. I personally locked my payout address so security is not a problem. So basically, I never look. I get an email when there's a payout. Excellent.

I like the slush culture...once you understand it, and you set it and forget it, it's a great pool.

Do you even mine?

Certainly. I've overall been happy with slush's pool, but this is why I'm thinking about switching to another pool.  Here are the results from "ping -t stratum.bitcoin.cz":



The time-outs happen regularly.  The problem is NOT with my own internet connection.  I had another ping session running simultaneously (ping -t stratum.btcguild.com), and BTC Guild only had one time-out the entire time.  My location is USA.

ICMP is not guaranteed way to test connection over internet - many routers have ICMP limit, which causes the packet to be dropped
Check with mtr and there will be no losses on the last hop

Well after reading a lot more on this thread and a lot on other sites about their pools I've come to a conclusion that may not be a ground breaker for many but it is a conclusion anyway. It is very obvious there are and will always be those on or in any pool who wish to complain and become very upset with the pool. Every forum has these people complaining over and over how unfair the pool is and feel something is very wrong.

Ok, fair enough that's their opinion and we all have a right to our opinion. BUT, what I DON'T UNDERSTAND is if they are so dang unhappy about a pool - why don't they just leave it and stop causing problems and issues for those who are happy with the pool! It seems all pools are full of these people.

BETTER YET, why don,t they start their own pools if they think they have a better way? Why? Because they can't, they don't know how to even begin or the money to start so they just stay and complain.

Life is to short everyone - just enjoy and be happy that Slush pool is here for those of us to use who aren't smart enough to do it ourselves. Man I've learned so much in the past week I can't believe it and I WILL BE STAYING WITH SLUSH POOL for the duration because this pool seems fair and the other pools are no better if you read forums on them.

Like has been mention several times do some research then make your own decisions and just enjoy making what bitcoins you can - it's FUN.

Oh and this post has nothing to do with the above post on pings. I do think it is cool how they can take pictures of their computers and post them. Oh wait I just had a thought, am I considered as being a forum troll (if that is the right word) if so I will stop posting.   Grin Grin Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Good point. Sorry about making an unfair assumption.  Regardless, I'd still like to check the reliability of my connection to stratum.mining.cz.  I tried running mtr stratum.bitcoin.cz a couple of times, and it seems to resolve to different addresses each time.  Looks to me like some load balancing of some sort is going on, but it seems odd to me that it wouldn't just resolve to the closest geographical server to me every time.  Sometimes it's smeu01.bitcoin.cz, sometimes it's 192.198.107.178, and sometimes it's 54.225.68.97 (ec2-54-225-68-97.compute-1.amazonaws.com).

Do you think manually specifying 54.225.68.97:3333 in my miner would be a good idea?  54.225.68.97 seems to have the lowest latency for me.

If it works yes,

but keep in mind tomorrow something else may be better.

No connection is perfect.

It's not a good idea to use a static IP on my opinion.

The main reason to use load balancing is to distribute the load and failover to the remaining live servers in case of problems, which you will loose in this case.
Lowest latency does not mean 'best' ... what if the server is close but overloaded?

If you insist on fixed IP - it's recommended to at least add the hostname for failover

Yep, it works. I can successfully submit shares using all three of those addresses.

Of course I'll still have stratum.bitcoin.cz as a failover pool specified in the miner since that's the supported address.  I'm just trying to outsmart the load-balancer to get the best connection.

However, if I'm reading the output from mtr right, there is actually some loss at the last hop.  More so for 54.225.68.97 than the other two.  Maybe smeu01.bitcoin.cz is actually the best address for me even if it has the highest latency?

EDIT: Yeah, I realize this isn't a solution if the server is overloaded... But you said there shouldn't be any loss at the last hop?

For me all 3 hosts are perfect, so it's not the last hop being a problem for you, but the route it takes.

It seems (from my side) core.servermania.com has some rate limit rules, so those 0.8% may be false alarm for you, but not sure

With Amazon it also depends on their load balancer(s), which may be lagged from time to time when a new server joins or leaves, but the great thing with stratum is that it keeps the TCP connection (chached and) open and there is no need to find a new route until there is a problem.

smeu is a bit far from you, so putting it last, but in fact all 3 are OK on my opinion

Hello,

I have installed this software on a linux server. I have pointed some of my miners to this server. But, on the pool that I use (middlecoin), the hashrate does not shows up.

This software should be able to run for stratum pools, right? Also for script?

They must be upgrading something. The stats page is now missing our shares and rewards. I guess we can stop complaining about 'none' now :-D

I just came here from the pool page.  I had unconfirmed shares earlier, but that's now 0 on the "My account" page, with the confirmed being the same amount it was last night.  I've got 500 GH/s going in, and nothing shows?  There was 0.03+, or more, unconfirmed; now 0.0000000 ?  I hope this gets fixed, and I get back what was already there pending confirmation a few hours ago....
