Hi,
As per the title I need to do this but I don't know how. Can I configure it within a script. I'm using Linuxcoin. Thanks a mill.  Smiley

Im not sure how about linux, but in windows you simply run a second instance of poclobm with a lower- f param, such as one with -f30 and -f4,  it will default run mostly on the lower f pool, but upon failure it will switch concentration to the other pool

If you are using poclbm, the new version (updated today) you just put the pools one after another with a space in between. It doesn't require any extra tags.

The older version which you probably have, will use either --SERVERS or --BACKUP/FALLBACK and then you just put the 2nd pool there.

It's better to be pissed off, than to be pissed on.

I know with guiminer (I have never used linuxcoin, so if this not applicable sorry, at least I tried to help) you can set poclbm to --failover user:pass@server:port and you can tweak it with --tolerance N where N is the number of failed connections for your primary. There is also a setting that changes the retry count but I never mess with that.

1.  Set up a machine that can log into your other miners from a remote location (eg., using ssh)

2.  Set up scripts on that machine to rename your mining scripts on your miners

3.  Monitor your miners either via scripts written with the above paradigm or on BTC Poolwatch

4.  If you see things going wrong, log in (1) and fire off your changeover scripts (2)

It all depends on how much rolling your own you want to do.
