Is it still down or down again?

And I don't think you can use the Bitminter client for any other pool. You'd have to use a different miner to set up a backup pool.

Things are looking more stable again. Hopefully to stay that way.

Backup pools is one of the next features for BitMinter client. No ETA on that yet though, as there are a few other critical things that also need to be handled.

I think I'm moving on from BitMinter to Eclipse or BTCGuild now. It's a great pool when it's working, though.

Why move? Just have a backup pool (or two) defined on cgminer/bfgminer command line.

True, although my backup pool didn't switch over when everything went down today. Not sure if that was my fault or CGMiner's. However, I'm staying for now.

Not worth it. You'd be better off with a PPS pool as a back-up (such as 50BTC) because of short outage durations.

True, I understand that the probability of finding a block on my own is very low, but one of the reasons I'm doing mining is to really learn as much about bitcoin and its peer network as possible. So I think it would be fun to "gamble" a bit of this off time in solo mining.
The instructions I've found basically point to running the bitcoin wallet with server=1 in the .conf file, and pointing your workers at the ip of the machine running the bitcoin wallet.
I have a pair of ASIC Erupter Blades, which communicate on the getwork protocol. To mine with stratrum protocol on BitMinter, I'm using Slush's proxy (mining_proxy.py). Is it so that the bitcoin wallet when run as a server is able to give out jobs to miners via getwork ?  In this case it's acting like a mini-mining pool, isn't it ?

bitcoin-qt does not understand stratum. So Slush mining proxy is of no use. It implements the getwork protocol. I guess you can say that it acts like a mini-pool but it does not scale very well.

from http://mining.bitcoin.cz/stratum-mining

1 getwork job == 4.2 GH/sec

on top of server=1, you'll need to configure some security settings such as rpcallowip.

Bitminter API:

Is there any way to figure out how much I earned for each block via the API.

For example https://bitminter.com/api/pool/blocks?commodity=BTC&max=20

I can lookup the total income from the blocks, but I do not appear to be able to lookup how much of the income was allocated to me?

It understands getwork and GBT (getblocktemplate). There is talk about removing getwork. Pools use GBT to talk to bitcoind. I haven't tried but you could probably connect a mining client using GBT directly to it.

Not currently. I'll think about that for a future update. I am planning to expand the API quite a bit. All ideas are welcome. Smiley

That's basically the current balance, or did you mean something else?

Each transaction on your account has a category, even though it's not shown on the website yet. I am planning to show totals by category. So you could see how much your total mining income is, how much you donated in total, etc.

With today's connection woes, I got a full day of:
Code:
Aug 22 14:46:56 miner cgminer[1679]: Testing pool stratum+tcp://mint.bitminter.com:3333

Unfortunately, not more info is given in syslog. Is this a cgminer issue that it didn't switch to the backup pool or is this BitMinter related?

Ouch. Sad I would report that to the cgminer guys. One pool going down shouldn't prevent it from switching to backup pool, or switching back to BitMinter when the server comes back up.

- last_round_shares
- last_round_income
- last_round_start
- last_round_block  (height or ID of block that was discovered)

I'm using CGMiner and it didn't switch over to the backup either, but thankfully I was at my computer when everything went down so I changed it manually.

- Backup pools will pick up their connections faster when the primary pool goes down.

I guess, it really is time to update...

I believe I have fixed the website slowdowns that would cause Cloudflare errors. Let me know if you still see any.

There is also a new beta of BitMinter client out that should work better on BFL ASIC singles and minirigs. If you have such hardware, please give it a try. If there aren't any problems then this will soon be the next stable release.
