Maintenance 2014.07.18 14:00 UTC. Expected mining downtime 1 to 5 min.

Mining server needs a bit more work. Miners will get disconnected for a short moment. I expect you probably won't really notice this.

Hi All,

    I'm kind of new to this; so I've been playing around with optimizing my miners for about a month. I was looking for tips for settings for my Antminer S2 miners, and just the other day, I came across this:

  http://www.norgzpool.net.au/antminer.html

    I used his formula for pseudo_share calculations, and rounded it up from 1187.84 to 1188. I'm sure that most of y'all reading this are yawning by now, but after setting the maximum difficulty to 1188 for these on the Bitminter "Workers" page for "My Account", I am seeing some hashing speeds I would not have expected. I am seeing peaks of over 2.5 Th/s for my two Antminer S2 miners combined. If I look on the web interface for either miner, I sometimes see peaks of 1.5 Th/s just for a single miner.

    Before I had tried this, I was seeing peaks of about 1.15 Th/s per miner, with low spots in the mid 750 Gh/s. It was the low spots I was hoping to tweak higher.

    For you other Antminer S2 owners, I'd like to know what settings you use that you are happiest with.

With power like that you'd do well to set a minimum difficulty for that worker.  For a 700GH unit I use a minimum difficulty of 256.

All this does is make sure the big units chew on the harder stuff, but it kinda stops them getting clogged up with easy stuff.  Apparently this helps with payments.

No doubt DrHaribo can clarify more.

Looks interesting.  In what file/config do you put this share & pseudo_share setting?

It doesn't really help with payments. Higher difficulty means you use less bandwidth (less network traffic), but also your variance will go up. That means the daily variance in your earnings will vary more, depending on your luck in finding proofs of work, than if you had a lower difficulty.

The mining server will automatically adjust your difficulty to a level that is a good trade-off between bandwidth usage and variance. Normally it starts you on difficulty 4 (currently) and ramps up the difficulty from there. By setting a minimum difficulty you can make the first minute or two of mining smoother by starting directly at a difficulty that fits your miner. The minimum difficulty is also useful for broken mining clients (like on the Dragon ASICs) that use a difficulty from their web interface configuration and ignore the difficulty the server is telling it to use (a complete violation of the Stratum protocol). In this case make sure you set the minimum difficulty for your Bitminter worker to the same difficulty in the Dragon web interface. Otherwise you may lose most of your work and mining income. And/or ask the manufacturer to repair their software.

General advice, set your minimum difficulty to your hashrate in GH/s divided by 1.4.

Info on difficulty, work submits per minute and the easy mode perk:

Ok thanks.

Right now i have to receive 2 S3(882 GH/s total), and i will buy 2 more.

So: 882 / 1.4 = 630 difficulty?? where do i have to enter that value?? On my antminer interface i suppose?

Minersbox (formerly Minerscube) looks like a total scam. Don't give your coins to scammers.

It should not be confused with ASICMiner Cube, which is a real product.

When you are buying mining hardware please remember that most offers are scams. Most mining hardware "companies" are scams. Not a few. Most. The safe route is to buy from companies that have delivered in the past and where the customers have been happy. If you pre-order from a company that has never delivered anything before, then you have to be very careful and do some research. Most of those are scams, remember?

If their WHOIS listing is anonymous ("privacy protect", "whois guard", etc), their website has no contact information, their machines are faster than all competitors, their machines use a fraction of the electricity of competing products, their prices are way too low, their webpage has a paypal logo but they don't actually accept paypal payments (see their FAQ), their emails to potential customers (which you can read elsewhere on bitcointalk) reveal that they don't know which proof-of-work algorithm bitcoin uses, they don't seem to understand what an ASIC is, and they give some crazy stories to explain the other suspicious aspects..... add all this up and you should realize it's a scam. Not just a scam, but a poorly presented scam by an inexperienced con man.

Even if you wanted to get scammed, there are better ASIC scams out there.


Good point of view as for the icing on the cake; form your point of view, what would be the trustworthy h/w one should buy?

Did we make an instant block?  0% cdf


block number 310997


the stats on it are weird   unknown miner no time needed  it is getting confirms so it should be good.

I watched this clock over as it happened, It was the same time the NMC block was found, I thought it was a site error, But I also see it confirming as well  Huh

Recording of some data for the block at height 310997 was delayed. It's now listed with much more work than was actually spent, meaning the calculated CDF and average hashrate for the round are also too high. The next block we find will come out with numbers too low. I'll correct the work amounts recorded on the blocks manually after that.

Note that this is only an issue for statistics. It doesn't affect payouts in any way.

General advice, set your minimum difficulty to your hashrate in GH/s divided by 1.4.

    I had tried this formula before, resulting in "741", and it works great for my Dragon miner, but the Antminer S2 miners had a wider variance than the Dragon did; so that is what lead me to searching for tweaks for the S2 miners. Even with the ever increasing Bitminter Pool hashrate, using "1188" as my minimum difficulty for the S2 miners has increased my average overall score over what the S2 miners were generating using "741" previously. Sure, it's just by decimals, but this is a game of decimals, right?  Wink

Looks interesting.  In what file/config do you put this share & pseudo_share setting?

    On the Bitminter web-site, click on the "My Account" tab, and select "Workers" from the drop-down menu. Next to each worker's name is a cogwheel icon. Click on it, and set the minimum difficulty there.
