Thanks for testing, guys! Just restarted with some tweaks to var diff and logging, and fixed the stats issue.

Testing continues. Let me know if you have any issues at all on the test port. So far things are running very well and I'm considering setting this up on the main port very soon.

I forgot to mention the new version also has some decent reduction in CPU usage. It will be interesting to see the effect all these changes will have on CPU usage and reject rates.


Running good here.  One thing I'm seeing is the server can't seem to decide what difficulty to give.  Largest miner is ~2.6GH/s.  At startup, it's on difficulty 2.  Then it switches to 1.  Then it switches back to 2.  Right now it's on one.

I'm also confused why cgminer is submitting shares that are under difficulty.

M

It's changing between 2 and 4 for me. Reject rate is ~1.5% ~1.9%.

Rewards page isn't working correctly anymore, it seems to assume a 50 BTC block reward for the expected average.

Please add stratum to the main port.  I miss the statistics. Sad

Yes, some users will be on the boundary between two difficulties. This currently gives a lot of rejects in cgminer. But they do no harm and they will disappear in a later cgminer version when it starts using the new stratum way of handling difficulty.

Stratum was recently changed to better handle changing difficulty. We'll have to expect it can take some time before everyone have changed their implementations.

Rewards page isn't working correctly anymore, it seems to assume a 50 BTC block reward for the expected average.

Oops, will look into this.

Coming right up.

Stratum on the main port looks good so far with cgminer 2.9.5,

In case anyone is wondering why cgminer is still showing LP you have to restart it before it detects the stratum

Congrats on the upgrade Doc!

All the new changes are now live on the regular ports. Testport has shut down for now.

Variable difficulty ("var diff") settings: minimum 1, maximum 16, and default at 2 when your hashrate is unknown. The maximum will be increased when ASICs come out. The server will adjust your difficulty aiming for 20 submitted proofs of work per minute.

Port 8332 has getwork with difficulty 1 for now. This means you can still use leases from hashpower.com - var diff will be activated for getwork once hashpower supports var diff.

Port 8332 also has GBT with var diff.

Port 3333 and 5050 has Stratum with var diff. New work pushed at 30 second intervals.

If you want to use GBT or Stratum you may want to update your miner config and/or restart bfgminer/cgminer/poclbm to get it running with a new protocol.

BitMinter client will get support for other protocols later. It runs getwork with rollntime now and will use var diff once activated on the server.

Let me know if you have any questions or experience any problems.

Congrats on the upgrade Doc!

Thanks! That was a lot of work and many changes that just went live. Good to finally finish all that and see it running smoothly (knock on wood).

Doc,
Are you restarting pool? A lot of rejects and 503 open id login error?

PS: I just saw your post..Is DoS affecting mining or just web is attacked?

Seems a change on the server is causing miners to sometimes run crazy. Working on it.

Is merged mining still occurring with stratum?

I know other pools have dropped namecoin with stratum (btcguild and ozcoin for example).

Apologies for the bumpy ride.

Technical mumblings: There was an issue with longpoll (both getwork and gbt) because of a race condition. Seems it never triggered before I switched to a different java virtual machine. And of course it never triggered during testing, even with that JVM. Have to love those bugs that only occur in production.

I believe that issue should now be resolved.

Bad news is, I didn't know bfgminer requires mining.get_transactions to be implemented. Edit: it doesn't, actually.

So bfgminer is still acting up. But any miners running getwork or gbt should be fine again.

Working on the bfgminer issue.

Is merged mining still occurring with stratum?

Yes, merged mining happens whether you use stratum, gbt or getwork.

Great!  Gives you an edge over other pools.

Looks like bfgminer now is working onstratum.  I see less shares acceptedon  my console but the hashrate on bitminter looks right.  Is this the way its supposed to work.

Yeah, that's because of variable difficulty. When it says "Accepted f7564e7c Diff 16/4 GPU 0" that means this proof of work would be good enough when mining even at difficulty 16, but you are currently mining at difficulty 4. On the server this will count the same as 4 difficulty 1 proofs of work. So you will see the accepted count on the server go up by 4.

Have you considered something like CloudFlare to help protect the front end? It won't do anything for the mining ports, but it might help defend the website.

Just a thought. I mention CloudFlare specifically because it's free. $$
