There's something going on with the pool!!!

I'm getting more rejected shares than accepted right now and it's only on slush's pool that this is happening.


I'm wondering if everyone is experiencing this, and that is why we are getting such shit block times right now.

It all looks normal on my miners.

I'm not getting rejected shares but a lot of stale shares don't know about others.

What other pools are you on if I may ask and how are they doing in this pool slow down. I noticed BTC Guild has paid over 30 blocks just today so far but not sure what a slower miner like me would be getting there since they have approx. 30,000 miners on right now.

Yeah they are stale shares, which translate into rejected...

I have a fall back onto Ghash.io, and then my backup backup pool is Ozco.in (I do it fur the lulz)

I have barely made anything from this pool in the past week.

I don't have that much hardware, but i'm seeing almost %75 less BTC being generated compared to other pools that I try.

Well it would seem that a restart on BFGminer has fixed the problem, but I've never had to do that before...

Hmmm... My big issue with revenue decline comes from the fact we aren't solving any blocks. I haven't done any digging, but some posts have said other pools are slow too...

If the entire network is actually slow that means perhaps the last difficulty adjustment was too aggressive. From what I understand, difficulty (technically) can move up or down, whatever it takes, with the end goal being that the next 2016 blocks take 2 weeks to mine. Not saying the last difficulty increase was flawed or too aggressive, but if this is a network-wide issue we should expect to see it reflected somehow in the next difficulty calculation.

Makes sense but they don't seem to know why this is happening and here is an exact copy off the BTC Guild site:

A block was paid out twice earlier today due to a severe slowdown in the bitcoin daemon used to scan for new blocks. This block has been removed from the payment history and the shifts since it was already paid once. Rewards will have decreased by 1 block for all users that were active between shifts 14027 and 14036. This should not materially affect overall rewards for any users. If a user's balance has gone negative as a result, it is highly unlikely their balance will remain negative by the time those shifts are closed due to additional block solves.

The exact reason the bitcoin daemon became so slow is not known, but secondary checks have been put into place to prevent a double payment from happening in the future.

That news post isn't related to other pools, it was a BTC Guild specific issue.  The problem was figured out (wallet file was too fragmented causing it to respond extremely slowly whenever new blocks are found on the network).  I thought that type of slowdown had been mostly corrected in bitcoin 0.8, but was wrong.

Also Bitminter and Eligius are reporting long rounds in the last 48h

What is this??? The end of the world???

By now I'll move 60% of my hashing power to a multipool for alt coins, and wait until the storm passes.

I'm not sure what you consider a slowdown, according to http://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty blocks are being found every 8.4 minutes. that is faster than the every 10 minutes that it is supposed to be. I've been on Slush since May '13. Slush used to be roughly 10% of the world's hashrate. Now, it is less than 5% so it should take longer to find blocks. as your hashrate goes down the Variance goes up. this means that we will see more very long blocks and very short blocks..

Lord, 731 terahashes, and we're only 5%??? Who is getting all the blocks, then? 'Cos we sure ain't. Surely someone out there is compiling a list of pools, with the best (ie. most profitable) pools at the top. I'm partial to CZ, but at some point, and as I aquire more miners, I'll probably switch over and try out a few other pools. Anyone know of such a list?

That's probably why right at the top of the page they state "An estimation of hashrate distribution...for various reasons will not be 100% accurate"
