The pool seems to be solo mining a lot. The majority of my shares from today have gone into solo mining. Why not put them into eligius or something like that instead?

The pool seems to be solo mining a lot. The majority of my shares from today have gone into solo mining. Why not put them into eligius or something like that instead?

Solo happens in the following 2 conditions:
* the target pools don't give multiclone enough work quickly enough to distribute to its users to prevent 'miner idle's
* a multiclone user's miner is misbehaving (hasn't been submitting enough valid shares relative to the getworks requested)


That said, for the past ~day, we've only got ~3% stale and ~3% solo.
Code:
bash-4.1$ grep "submitting share.*" log/037 | wc -l
101286
bash-4.1$ grep "submitting share.*incorrect" log/037 | wc -l
3215
bash-4.1$ grep "submitting share.*solo" log/037 | wc -l
2998

With a 1.25 efficiency (of the confirmed shares, which is what my new miner has got for the past week since the problems were resolved), you still come out (1-.03-.03)*1.25 = 1.175 -> 17.5% ahead of the 'ideal' non-hopping case.

I have some ideas on things that might help reduce solo that I might get to this weekend...

Solo mining:

Would it be beneficial if you set everyone to mine on the solo? I mean, if a block was achieved with us, then that could be quite a few coins right?

All that would accomplish is turn multiclone into Yet Another Proportional Pool.  Pointless.  Solo is there so that workers do something quasi-useful when the pool can't give it anything better.  There's still a chance we'll find something on solo mining, which is why we do that rather than miners idling.


Also, the getwork daemon died and prevented any work getting distributed earlier today due to a perl threading issue from the original code that it looks like the original Multipool was fighting with, too.  I think I fixed it, but it's happened before and I thought I fixed it that time too.

This time, I wrote some code to just relaunch the damn threads when they crash.  Things should be working again, and this should provide some better stability than 'lets hope Nick notices the server is messed up and manually restarts it' Smiley

Hey nick, I know you don't know all the answers.. But you've been pretty good at it so far.

I thought because the price had dropped so low, we would mine more, but it was considerably less. Why is that?


Also, when I suggested to mine just on solo, I meant until we get the block and then go back to normal. I didn't mean forever.

Ah I got a question too:

When I refreshed my stats page this morning I noticed 40k shares had 'come in', which is nice.
I did also notice that efficiency dropped from 1.19ish to 1.099 which isn't so good (740462 shares total)

Any idea what happened there?

My GF thinks I'm useless, if you think otherwise and can proof it to her, please do so and donate:

payments sent

I think I'm going to shut this down -- compatibility with virtually all pools has broken, and multiclone just isn't a profitable way to mine anymore since I don't have time to fix it.
