Unfortunately I can't post to the "mining" forum, "eligius" thread. Maybe someone can forward this message to it?

I am having problems with eligius - every few minutes (really very often!) I get the following messages:

[22/06/2011 00:31:32] Warning: work queue empty, miner is idle
[22/06/2011 00:31:40] Disconnected from server
[22/06/2011 00:32:08] Failed to connect, retrying...
[22/06/2011 00:32:17] Connected to server

I am running on linux, have to graphic cards installed. One is mining with eligius, one with deepbit (just to compare the pools). And I run only into troubles with eligius, no matter which card I use. Phoenix says something like 0.9% stale, while eligius shows me ~4% stales. Probably because of the disconnects.

Is there any parameter I can use to improve my askrate? Right now, I use:

Code:
./phoenix.py -u http://x:x@mining.eligius.st:8337 -k phatk DEVICE=0 VECTORS BFI_INT AGGRESSION=9

Thanks for your help!

For trying out askrate, put ;askrate=10 for example after the url for the pool like this:

Code:
./phoenix.py -u http://x:x@mining.eligius.st:8337;askrate=10 -k phatk DEVICE=0 VECTORS BFI_INT AGGRESSION=9


But the problem you have could also be related to the server being overloaded at the moment from too many users trying to connect.

You shouldn't need ASKRATE if long polling is supported.

Come try out mineco instead: https://mineco.in

I tried mineco.in right away. But I get a little bit nervous: after about 160 shares my stats are still showing that I didn't submit any shares at all (and still mining @0Mhash/s).

Are the stats so slowly refreshing? After all the page tells me that the hashrate should be calculated over the last 10 minutes.

Sorry, this command line does not work:
No device specified or device not found, use DEVICE=ID to specify one of the following

But putting the arguments -u to the end works:
Code:
./phoenix.py DEVICE=0 VECTORS BFI_INT AGGRESSION=9 -k phatk -u http://x:x@mining.eligius.st:8337;askrate=10

Let's see what happens the next few hours. Thanks!

Yep the stats will take a little while to update. Leave it running for 30 minutes or so. If your miner is happy then the server will catch up soon!
