I just hope that slush's current web host doesn't back down on their promise and closes his account when a big DDoS attack comes - and it will come.

I looked at hetzner's site and I could not believe they're offering servers with 16 GB of RAM for just 49 Euros.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Slush - Can you assure us that no BitCoins or NameCoins were lost in the disk crash?

I can't speak for anyone else here but I know you have to run this pool on a strict budget what with the depressed price of BitCoins these days. I understand some downtime is always a possibility.

I don't think it would be proper server ECC memory at that price, perhaps some 8GB g-skill modules. But I could be wrong who knows Smiley

I'm not much of a server guy myself, but I'm told with the way it's setup and the features it offers, it would be able to handle large scale DDOS attacks.  Might be worth looking into at least.  
Oh - link: http://aws.amazon.com/

I worked with EC2 in my previous job, of course I considered it. Unfortunately they handle DDoS in similar way like Linode.

No coins were lost, I'm doing regular backups outside datacenter and I did also manual backup before shutting down the server. However payouts are now stopped, I need to recalculate few rounds manually before I'll start them again, sorry.

I had nice time with OVH technical support, it was really pleasure to work with them. The best part is that it was NOT a hardware issue, but a bug in VMWare which *looked* like hardware issue, which has been fixed by tuning kernel options. This also explain why RAID "didn't work". Really painful 17 hours of waiting to their response! However it's fixed on 90% now.

Quote from: slush
they forget to setup RAID during server installation

Well, to be honest, they did setup RAID on the server, but it isn't visible on software layer (and even in their disk recovery tool in rescue mode), so I decided that RAID is missing by mistake.

bulanula: Payouts are not enabled yet, they'll be back in few hours. I need to check last rounds if their rewards were not affected by outages and recalculate possible issues. Thanks for patience.

Sure, take your time. I just want to widthraw all my total ( unconfirmed + confirmed too ) NMC and BTC funds I did so far before I start my rigs again so as to pay electricity this month etc.

Thank you !

Well I for one is still have the same problem as last couple of days with the pool and website only working for short periods.
Now the miners just fell back to secondary pools and the website stopped working again...

Yeah, my miners reconnected briefly then got stuck on "server error" and then temporarily down for maintinence then switched to backup. Ohh well, guess there are still some more kinks to workout...

I'm an idiot, because I has been trying another mysql configuration on separate virtual machine - and forgot to setup same kernel parameters there as on production database. So I accidentally shot down machine on the same vmware bug again. So outage was just a server restart, because I was on console when it happen. I'm sorry for downtime.

Problems in long polilng connection. You get few of this when I restart long polling daemon, but your miner should then reconnect. I don't see any issue with longpolling on my side now.

No doubt it's not ECC memory, but even so I guess you can get by without ECC, no?

What shocked me though was the price disparity. States side a server like that would cost you several hundred dollars. Heck a core i7 860 with 4 GB costs you over $140/month - and this is the best deal I found.

Update: It's official at the 49 euro price the memory is non ECC. To get ECC RAM  you have to go with their EX6 package.
