I've actually noticed a bigger difference based on the duration of the round and I'm right around 2ghash.  I'll average about .07 on most rounds, but on shorter round, generally under 5 minutes, I'll average around .03.

The only reason I haven't said anything sooner is because this conversation has come up before.  And it was generally attributed to pool hoppers.

If the hoppers contributed to the total share of the initial 5 minutes, they increased pool's hashrate thus contributed to the success of finding the block.

But where do those hoppers go leaving the pool? solo?


Im not exactly sure as I've never actually hopped myself.  But I'm fairly sure they come onto the pool at the beginning of a block.  And they will stay there until the current block reaches a preset amount of shares.  Once they hit that number of shares, they move on to another pool that is just starting a block.

If they are on Slush's pool, and he finds a block within a couple minutes, I would imagine that they would hang around for the next block to see if they can cash in on that one too, but eventually they will reach that preset number of shares (or possibly preset block running time?) and move on to another pool.

Looks like the pool, and website, just went down.  Hopefully it's nothing serious...

If hoppers contribute to solving blocks faster and are losing shares on long rounds it's durable. Slush wanted to switch to DGM at some point as I remember. Anyway he does it, I'm cool. Super reliable service for the longest time now. I'm guessing he does not sleep much. But I'll shut up b4 somebody will call me a fanboy again. Cheers!

Is something wrong with the way btc is being awarded? I got 0 btc for the last two rounds even though slush's site says I have an average of 2Ghash/sec. Since the max capacity for what I have is 2Ghash, that means they must have been working?

I believe the hoppers move to PPS pools

They move to any pool where the expected value of a share = 1/D at any given point in a round, for example: PPLNS, DGM, SMPPS, PPS.

If they don't understand variance or can't accept variance, they'll go PPS and pay the fee or SMPPS and deal with the negative buffer issues later.

If they understand variance and can accept it, they'll go with either a DGM they suits their preferences or PPLNS.

A while back I was complaining that my pool payouts would never catch up with the blocks my miners have generated. Well, the ratio looks much better now. 7 blocks to 326 BTC paid out plus Namecoins. Seems I was wrong. Looks like you really just need to keep mining long enough for it to equal out.

Yeah, it is pretty random.  But generally over time, it tends to even out.

Im at 4 blocks found and around 240 btc paid out...

Lol I'd start solo mining, and hope that variance and luck catch up with me.

Is this the best place to make requests/suggestions to the pool operator?
It would be cool to have an option for email notification of a dead miner. Like an adjustable timer for a miner not producing any shares...

Also, thanks for doing a great job keeping the pool up and running so consistently.  Smiley
