(Out of the newbie area at last!)

When Slush's pool was DDoS'ed I signed to BitMinter as backup. I noticed that the rate of namecoin mining there is about 10 times faster, which tempted me to continue mining there (not that it's a really good excuse, but psychologically it feels I'm getting more "stuff").

Anyone can explain why BitMinter can mine so much more namecoins?

All of bitminter's hashrate goes towards merged mining. Slush is only doing merged mining on his getwork nodes, which are currently only 10% of his pool (merged mining does not happen on his Stratum nodes), but profits are distributed to everyone (both getwork and stratum workers) in the pool.

This is why namecoin income on Slush is only 10% of what it would be "normally", and agrees with what you have observed.

I appreciate the extra income namecoin can provide, but for me pool stability is more important.


Well the getwork miners are actually closer to 4% of the pool, and some (many?) of us haven't bothered to fill in a NMC wallet.

If some don't have an NMC wallet, their share of NMC is distributed to the ones who do which would bump up the namecoin income percentage from 4%. Over the past few weeks the migration from getwork to stratum here continues to be fairly rapid.

[...]Your stale rate seems actually a little higher to me.

So do I. Circa about 50% higher then before few days.

The past week I can't stay connected. cgminer is not switching to backup pools either, its all rejected shares the first time. Today it crashed cgminer on all 11 of my pc's. It just showed the program stopped responding message. I just gone done redirecting them to slush's pool a couple hours ago to see if things were working again. Guess not.. I was very impressed before, I had no issues since switching to stratum except for the past 10 days or so.

Update your CGminer

Or fix his internet.

I'm using an old CGMiner 2.10.3 on one machine and CGMiner 3.0 on the other.  No connection issues since the DDoS attack stopped.

I hope you will use a proportional method for the blocks during the error... If it gona be a long one... My workers can't connect to stratum and getwork and I'm on a backup pool... They should come back automatic but I'm not sure how long it takes for them to detect that your pool is back...
