Glad to see my bitching is finally starting to pay off. LOL  Grin Grin

Of course I'm just kidding.  Tongue

EDIT: The "Estimated Daily Reward" just took a big hit with the Difficulty jumping over 16%. Not the best news. Tongue

EDIT 2: By my own calculations, nothing to do with the pool estimate - my mining earnings mathematically dropped by over $5.00 a day. That kinda sucks.  Sad

get your furry self back to Kano.is

Good luck on the potential new job, furry guy!

But if you don't mind me asking, what does the new job have to do with what pool you mine on?

Maybe you're just looking for less variance here on Slush over Kano?

I moved from Kano's pool because I value voting for SegWit over a slight long term profitability advantage. But that's just me...

Thank you for the good wishes.

Well, the new job would allow me to add at least 2 more modern miners to my four S9's and three S7's (that I run when it's cold enough so I don't turn the heat in the house on.) I feel I would have a bigger impact on Kano pool with that. But I understand that's faulty logic and what hash I have now would be a help there regardless. (Don't really know why I was thinking that way to begin with.)  Huh

The second part, yes, I moved to Slush for less variance because I cash out at the end of each month to help with the power bill and other bills.
I've been an IT guy for 20+ years and I'm currently under-employed and under-paid working for a non-profit. So the new job would give me the freedom of not having to worry about the bills or how many coins I can earn each month. I'm waiting on an answer from one job interview and have another interview next week.

I will "probably" stick here a little longer - new job or not - but I do want to go back to Kano in the near future. I'm not a SegWit fan myself.  Grin

Best wishes and happy mining! Smiley

When changing the difficulty for one of my miners on Slushpool, how long will it take to come into effect? I have an S9 and am trying to decrease the bandwidth consumption. I understand if I increase the difficulty I should use less bandwidth because I will be submitting my shares and requesting work less frequently (am I right about this?).

Also, does anyone have any suggestions on how I can reduce my total bandwidth / traffic use if I have multiple (20+) S9's running on the same network? I will be using a cellular data plan, so it is important to minimize my data usage.

Thanks Smiley

I can't tell you about the difficulty settings as I have tried to change mine and have never gotten them set satisfactorily. So I just put them back at the minimum. Whatever vardif Slush talks about, I don't see it working or at least I'm not doing something right and there is almost no real information to make good judgement implementations - at least that's my take. Wink

As for reducing bandwidth for multiple miners, you may want to look into a proxy. I know Kano has one available for his pool and I would guess that Slush probably has one too. But I don't know how to implement it and really have no need as I'm only running 7 miners.
But I think a proxy is what you should look into.
Let us know what you find out. It could benefit others, myself included.

Good luck! Smiley

As wmabern suggested, a proxy will dramatically decrease your bandwidth. You can use ckpool (linux only) in ckproxy mode to put as many miners as you like to connect to one worker on your pool. The ckpool link is in my signature.

Any idea what's going at slushpool only 3 blocks found at 07-Feb-2015 with 171.7 PHS and no block for 12hours!

Is it bad bad luck or because the difficulty is higher or something is not right with the pool!

Thanks

Hi VentMine, you can set the minimum difficulty to 28 000 which should decrease the bandwidth consumption by half. Let us know if it helps.

Hi abonami, thanks for mining with us. Currently there is no reason to believe it is anything more than just a bad luck.
Therefore the best thing to do is to stay mining.

Yeah, that would be a mild way of saying it.  Tongue

It makes me wonder about the "quality" of hash pointed at the pool. But since we have no way of seeing what miners are hashing with what hash rate, we have no way of looking for any kind of pattern. Not that the pool members would be able to discover something "fishy", but at least with the additional information we would have a chance of spotting something out of the ordinary - if it was there.

--snip---

I had written a good bit more but decided it was probably best to keep my "mouth" shut. It would at least be nice to see what miner hits a block. But for some reason, I guess that it's for the best to keep that information confidential.

In the mean time, since there's no additional information to go by, I guess I'll stick with the company line: bad luck.  Tongue

I hope it turns around quickly.  Huh

Well after close to 10 hours we just found another block. Good luck is returning. Hurray! Shocked LOL

Hmm, not sure what to say about that as I'm not really an expert on how so called "low quality hash" can affect the pool. I suspect you're referring to botnets or deliberate sabotage or high latency miners or? I'm sure the pool admins can see aberrant behavior on the pool. They do mention in the FAQs that they actively look for botnet activity and other such low quality hash being pointed at the pool. I dunno, let's hope that is not the case. Without knowing more details or feedback from the pool admin(s) I'd say it was just plain simple probability - ie pool luck. Luckily Wink it has returned and the goddess of coin fortune has blessed us with a recent streak of high luck. *does a little dance* Smiley

You're most probably completely correct, of course. I just needed something to occupy my time while waiting for the next block. I like to think of it as my complaining jolted the wheels of fortune a little jarring the clogged up blocks loose!   Grin
Happy mining to you!!  Cheesy Cheesy

Hi Guys,

I have been running for 3 months with an S7 which ALWAYS shows a stable speed of 4700Gh (NEVER seen it lower)

BUT on Slushpool it ALWAYS averages about 4550Gh-4600Gh ??

I have the difficulty on Slush as standard 8....Would altering this make a difference ??

I also read some where that you can add 'details' to the 'Miner Configuration' to alter is difficulty at the miner, by adding +500/500 (for a dificulty of 500) or similar to adjust it there also ?

Ayone help

Thanks

An

Hi VentMine, you can set the minimum difficulty to 28 000 which should decrease the bandwidth consumption by half. Let us know if it helps.

Hi SlushPool, yes I've got it figured out now. At first I made a small change to the difficulty so I didn't notice a significant variance / bandwidth change. I've since moved it from difficulty 25,000 to 250,000 and it didn't take long to verify that it did indeed work wonders at reducing bandwidth. I'm now at diff 500,000 for my S9 (max difficulty) just to see how low a bandwidth I can get (without running my own proxy as CK mentioned above).

So my variance, as expected, has increased dramatically. Should I be worried about increased stale shares or anything that will reduce my average hashrate, considering I am working at a ridiculously high difficulty of 500,000? I'm imagining my S9 working on a difficult share for a while before it finally realizes the pool has a new block to work on (just want confirmation from a smart person).

Thanks

It doesn't work quite like that. The discards are reported mostly from your machine throwing away current work because it's received the signal from the pool that the block has changed and it has accepted the new work parameters.

Question is how much can we trust the pool own autodiff mechanism and do certain miners fail to work properly with this? When I check some S7s of mine they do seem to report appropriate difficulty - same for S9s.
