can someone explain pool difficulty to me?


I have 12963MH/s from my one worker, and I set 9-16gh/s from the pool's dropdown menu and it says difficulty 8

my stratum proxy says also says

"proxy getwork_listener._on_submit # [0ms] Share from 'worker1' accepted, diff 8"



can someone explain what the benefit of this is? vs a difficulty of 1?

how does this effect my payout, how does it help the pool, pros cons etc

See:
The adjustable difficulty is really for [high hashing devices] because those high-throughput devices would clog the server. By setting a higher difficulty, the machine deals with fewer shares but they are worth n*1 shares in [the pool's] stats.

Yes but in this case Google search doesn't return what you are looking... pool difficulty setting would...

Heh, google.com gives different results to google.co.uk - go figure.  First hit on .co.uk was the answer using that same search.

Yes google customises results of the searches according to the state and user. I hate this "new" option...

Pool skipped storing the block #237278, unfortunately the monitoring didn't woke me up at night. To fix it and be as fair as possible, I added the block reward into round 18141 (closed by block #237286) and recalculated block rewards. That's the reason for such high block value of #237286 ...

Thank you Slush!

Might be worth getting a UPS - will keep you up for half an hour or so - maybe enough to see you through short outages...

I noticed every once in a while (like the last block) there will be almost 10BTC worth of transfer fees! I think it's awesome but does anyone know why that happens? a typo when someone did a transfer? or are people just being very nice to miners Tongue

The transaction that really fattened up that block was this one:
http://blockchain.info/tx/4b596c0fde12b98bad2cc8bb8d5b985ab3fdd7b986c49b231d85d7751dad4b40

It had a 9 BTC transaction fee associated with it.

I must have gone through a dozen of these. Different brands, different models. My conclusion: They're alwarys dead by the time you need them. Apparently we just haven't gotten that far along with battery technology to make a reliable backup unit. The only advancement they do is to make the alarm more annoying and more difficult to deactivate. Either that or the guys at the supply depot recognise my adress and they're like:
 "This guys again! Hey Joe, lets go find him another reject unit."

Go to BIOS. Setup power on if the power is lost. Don't set it up to last state. Set it to power on. I have all my machines setup this way. But it might heppen that you don't have this option.

Ive tried many and the only reliable brand for me over years and years has been APC.

Slush, I think there was a problem calculating block rewards for block 237396.   I only got a reward of 0.00003098 and it should have been in the range of 0.004 or greater..   Here are my rewards and shares for the last 4 blocks:

#           Block found at           Duration   Total shares   Your shares     Your BTC reward   Block #   Block value            Validity
18153   2013-05-22 19:33:54   2:16:21   18220901           1570             0.00501036           237404   25.42343650    100 confirmations left
18152   2013-05-22 17:17:33   3:04:10   24434822           4918             0.00003098           237396   25.10420001    92 confirmations left
18151   2013-05-22 14:13:23   0:16:44   2234190           530             0.00618735           237373   25.20905000    69 confirmations left
18150   2013-05-22 13:56:39   1:26:03   11420206           1855             0.00462750           237371   25.29270000    67 confirmations left

my own calculations based on my shares vs total shares shows the reward should have been much greater for that block.  Not sure what happened, can you take a look when you have a chance?

Well your shares are looking off. It seems like you had a problem at the end of a block 18152 and start of a block 18153. For 18152 you should have about 6360 shares and for 18153 you should have 4770. So it is clear what happened. You stop mining or you had connection problems. You do know how scoring system works right? If not look back it is explained(last time) from page 429 on. If you have additional questions let me know.

thanks for the info, I believe I did have a loss of connection for a brief period during that time, so that makes sense I guess.

And because of my lack of cognitive processing it took about 5 pages to get me to understand. So if you cant get it from that please ask more questions. Basically take the phase of the mood at 3pm then put in a constant for the size of your best friend's cat. divide that by the number of people in your home town during the year of your mothers birth. now multiply that all by your hash rate, divide by the total number of points and then multiply that by the total reward minus 2%. It really is that simple.  Shocked

Before anyone yells at me it's a joke and I'm picking on myself.
