Best of Both Worlds
-------------------

I hate long blocks, like everyone, and I hate pool hopping, because it never works.
So, here is what I did. Your mileage may vary.

For all my miners, I added ghash.io as a failover pool, Slush is primary.

Then, on the configuration page for the Antminer S3 miners, I changed 'Pool Balance' from Failover to Balance.
Initially this did not work so great, and Ghash was rejecting a lot of shares. After
looking around a bit, the reason became clear. Slush was sending me work with a
difficulty of around 128 +/-, and Ghash was sending me work with a difficulty of
1024. 50% of a S3 is not up to that.

The good news is that Ghash allows you to set the difficulty of your work. So, I went
to the workers section and set all of my miners to 128, then rebooted them all. The
rejections went way down.

Next, I let them run about 10 minutes so Slush could score them, and again updated
their difficulty to match what Slush was using.

All 8 of the S3 miners are now showing about 200 GH/s +/- on both Slush and Ghash.
Perfect.

The Antminer S2 does not have the balance option, but I wanted it to do the same thing.

So I found this link searching on Google:
http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/20992/can-i-set-up-cgminer-to-mine-in-different-pools-by-a-defined-ratio

I suppose it will work for anyone using CGMiner, but just tried it on my S2.
I changed the quota numbers to 50 for Slush, 50 for Ghash.

Don't forget to add the last line: "load-balance" : true,

Oh, and on the S2, you will find the config files in /config instead of /etc/config, and the pw is admin, not root like on the S1 and S3.

Anyway, now all 9 miners are balancing successfully between Slush and Ghash. I have 9 legs on a roller coaster and the other 9 on a freight train ... doesn't sound healthy, but so far, so good.

200Gh/s? You must have made a mistake. I get 440Gh/s per S3 across all of them.

I have 8 S1s and load balance by pointing 4 to slush and 4 to GHash. Seems a lot easier, but thanks for the info.

Sounds like an interesting plan.
Do you have any figures to share ?
I've found that on average Slush pays about 10 times what Ghash pay per block.
With a little over 2THs I receive approx $0.60 per block from Ghash.  I get approx $6.00 per block from Slush.
So obliviously Ghash would have to solve 10 times more blocks that Slush for the same payout.
In the recent past Slush has been killing Ghash, but the last weeks or so not so much.
I found this site which shows the historical work of different pools.
http://organofcorti.blogspot.com.au/

Interesting info and it might help if your shopping for different pools..

Remember bigger is not always better.

hi bobsav2121
thanks for the info
was wondering in total payout x block solved, is it higher or lower than other pool, such as eligius, btcguild or even ghash

I've mined at all of the pools above and of course slush. Asking which provides the greatest payout is like asking which is the best store to buy a fast-pick lottery ticket from - other than minor fee variations they're all pretty much the same in the long run, but will vary week-to-week.

/* I have 8 S1s and load balance by pointing 4 to slush and 4 to GHash. Seems a lot easier, but thanks for the info. */

That is definitely easier, I just wanted to figure out how the balancing worked because of the S2 in the middle.
Now I know how to point 8 miners evenly at 3 pools, but there really is not another pool that excites me. I hate
the payouts on Eligius and just never made any money on BTCGuild, so for now will keep the split between Slush
and Ghash.

It all comes down to luck but I do ok on BTCGuild. I myself have mined on various pools but I'll be setting up on Slush as a backup soon.

I have my miners spread thinly over slush and eligius. Ghash confuses me. I like nice old fashioned mining that is plain and simple to use. None of this cloud stuff and swapping for ghs.

gHASH Will convert your mined scrypt coins to Bitcoin automatically if you set it up that way.
Just check the option at the bottom of the multipool page.

I think we had a 26 hour one about a year ago.

A block took well over a less than a week ago. I forget how long it took but I think it went over 30 hours.
