How to reduce idle time!
Hey guys, I see that a lot of people are having issues with connection time outs and much idle time.
I found a quite simple "solution" to this, which you may not have thought of.

I have two GPU's that I mine with, using GUIMiner, now, I had the same issues you do, connection problems,
time outs, idle etc...

So I started running 4 miners on my two cards instead of one, currently Slush has two pool links going on:
mining.bitcoin.cz
api.bitcoin.cz

So set up your GPUs so they mine to BOTH addresses, if one drops out, it will transfer the Mhash/s to the one
that is still working, and vice versa. This will at least reduce idle time a great bit, and I haven't seen both links
time out at the same time yet Shocked

Peace!
Do a ping on both hostnames and you will find that it connects to the same IP. Pointing so many miners to them is not the solution! What you are effectively doing is DoSing the server since you are increasing its load. I advise you to have patience since the DDoS and increased load is currently overloading the servers so that's why your requests are getting timed out.

While you are right that it is increasing overall getwork request load, we don't really know for sure that it is pointing to the same location.  If there were no difference between them then slush would not have needed to add a new host name.  The resolved IP is most likely a load balancer which could be routing traffic selectively based on what the requested host name is in the HTTP GET request.  This is the same concept that allows you to host multiple websites with the same server & IP address.  We need slush to weigh in on this.

Actually mining.bitcoin.cz and api.bitcoin.cz is the same machine. But firstly we need to split traffic website/mining between two domains, then I can move one domain to another machine. I hope it will be possible tomorrow.

Maybe it is unusable, but not *wrong*. It works as was described before; worker is 'active' when last share was submitted in less than hour. I wanted to keep that just for compatibility with deepbit format, but I think 'last share' is better to follow.

Yes, i noticed all miners automatically connected and stopped throwing timeouts.
I assume that means mining2.bitcoin.cz will no longer be in use?

It would be best to use: api.bitcoin.cz

Is your IP whitelisted? Are you pointing your miner to api.bitcoin.cz?

I'm still up and running.

I assume you can log into your account online as you changed your password?

Ddi you see a message that your IP is whitelisted? Did you go to whatismyip to very that's the correct ip that should be listed?

On your gui miner, did you go to the Server dropdown box and choose other?

In the host name did you type api.bitcoin.cz? And of course carefully typing your username and password?

For clarification, are you talking about the website or the gui miner?

everything working great here.

one request though, if you could add total reward (confirmed + unconfirmed) to the json feed?  that would be really awesome. I check stats on the go from my phone.

Hey Slush when you get time, I noticed that in the JSON output I only get the first 24 workers reported.  The same 24 that are on the first page of the user account page.  When you have the time, can you get the remainder of the workers into the JSON feed?

Well, 1h is kinda an overkill it's, most of the times the user would like to know it "soon". The default value on slush pool was 30 min. I agree that last share is giving way more freedom.

Hey Slush when you have time do you think you can implement a wallet lock option like BTCGUILD? If the address is changed it can't withdraw for 24hours and a notice is sent to the registered email. Could by some time for anyone that has a compromised account.

Grats Slush.

Everything seems working again (without changing anything on my mining machines).

Do you think it's really necessary to switch to a new adress like api.bitcoin.cz. I would prefer not to, as you never should change a running system.

If necessary could you explain in detail please what steps are necessary when using GUIMiner. Do we have to change the content of the 'servers.ini' file in the guiminer folder? and what changes are advisable?

Thanks

Nice job slush! I registered yesterday because i have a dynamic ip isp (like everyone here in europe  Cheesy) and i was going to tell you that well having to pm you every time the new pm to white-list it is not a good idea  Grin But i see now that on the website the ip is automatically added as i visit it, so it work perfectly  Cheesy
