Huh, was it completly down?

Because from here it looks like I was mining on bitminter all the time,
backup pools have no shares listed in cgminer ... hmm.

Oh and I have cgminer 2.4.3 so its probably all my fault lol.
Going to upgrade now Cheesy

One of my rigs hung in there for 2h while others were in backup pools, I guess you got lucky.

Doc, how hard is it to restart the backend? If its just a matter of ssh-ing in to the server and restarting the db or something, maybe you should consider making a "killswitch" and giving one or two trusted users access to it. They may not even need full ssh access, just a trigger. It will not resolve all possible problems of course, but someone else being able to restart the backend could be enough to help you  sleep a bit more easily and not get stressed out just because you leave your laptop for a few hours.

Hmmm. That is an awesome idea, thank you. I will think about a good way to implement this.

No, it wasn't completely down, but it wasn't accepting new connections. If you were running a miner supporting persistent HTTP connections and that already had a connection it could be able to keep mining perhaps the whole time the pool was having issues. I think by the time I fixed it half the hash power was still there.

by the time you had fixed it around 630ghash was still there, so was my 1ghs bamt miner Smiley. (i dont know if luck or the http mining thing).

But nice that you fixed it so fast and your the first pool which has a very userfriendly client, just put in your acount and click mine. Friends of my are now considering mining on bitminter to because its so easy to use Smiley


(1 small last question, bitminter doesnt support gpu's from the AMD A4/A6/A8 series, only get 1mhash from that cpu on windows what should be around 50-100mhash)

Glad you like the miner. Very nice if you can bring some friends over. We have moved to the top of the 2nd tier pools. We need a big push now to get to the 1st tier pools.

(1 small last question, bitminter doesnt support gpu's from the AMD A4/A6/A8 series, only get 1mhash from that cpu on windows what should be around 50-100mhash)

The miner works with any GPU that has OpenCL drivers. Maybe you need to install Catalyst drivers to get it working? Those computers should show both a CPU and GPU in the miner (separately).

ill check it out, but on first hand diablo didnt notice it to... (only the 5870/5970 i had put in the mining pc). I thought by using an AMD A8 cpu i could use it for the extra mhash (but the msi A75A-G35 was the main choice because it had 3 slots between the 2 x16 slots, so even with a big cooler you have spare slot Smiley)

Ill check it out on windows and maybe i can do something on linux, BAMT is also not noticing it Sad

Maybe the GPU built into the CPU is disabled when using a discrete GPU and that's why it is not detected?

Anyone have any experience mining on both at the same time?

i think it has something to do with the dual graphics thing, and my monitors are connected to the videocard. Ill try with a resistor in the vga port of the motherboard (dummyplug function) Maybe its working then Smiley

wait 5-10minutes, then you got another 1ghash from me Smiley. (5970 + 5870 bamt miner, just finished building now setting up miners)

Its called variation:
http://bitcoin.sipa.be/

If you see how much variation there is in the total network's block finding "luck", perhaps you will realize how futile  it is to try different pools for a few days that generally have less than 10% of the total networks hashrate.  Organofconti has done extensive statistical analysis of some major pools over many months and his conclusions are not always conclusive because there isnt always enough data.

Some trouble with namecoind locking up during the night. Looks like we may have lost 4 namecoin blocks. That's why the namecoin CDF is so high as I write this. I'm running the latest version from their website without any patches or modifications. Not much I can do about this. I have restarted it and it seems to be running fine again now.

Luckily bitcoind is stable as a rock. I never saw it crash or lock up. We could use some better luck though.

wait 5-10minutes, then you got another 1ghash from me Smiley. (5970 + 5870 bamt miner, just finished building now setting up miners)

Very good Smiley and just in time.. hopefully we'll have another mint race coming up. Details coming soon! Smiley

5970 worked out to be faulty, oven couldn't help him.

not 1ghs, but around 800mhash (put the non 24/7 5870 in it with the nice overclocking)

Now around 4ghash 24/7 at the pool, noticed the reward is low compared to expected average...

https://bitminter.com/stats/rewards

lower graph...

But nice pool with nice client as i said (although i use cgminer/gui poclbm/phoenix)

A very clear majority wanted the change for the PPLNS reward system from N = 1x Difficulty to N = 2x Difficulty.

This change is now in effect.

What does this mean for you as a miner:

 
  • Variance is reduced. Pay from a block will be spread out over more work, so the highs and lows that a proof of work might get paid will be more evened out. This gives you more stable pay, especially if you don't mine 24/7.
  • Payout time is increased. Since you can get paid for blocks found over a longer period of time, this also means it takes longer from work is done until it is fully paid. Before this it took about 3.5 hours for work to be fully paid, after the change it will take 7 hours assuming the same hashrate.

Quick website fix. Some miners noticed the livestats was showing shift at 100% complete when it was 50% complete. This is of course due to the recent change in shift size. Now fixed - refresh the page and it should be correct.

great pool guys.  running 2.2 gh

Thank you, sir, and welcome to BitMinter Smiley

Hurray! Smiley I'm actually a big fan of N=shares over the last 24h so anything that gets the pool closer to this is great  Grin
Not running much MHs yet though, my main rig is down until next week Sad
