P4man, nice numbers! Smiley

I'm still hoping pool-wide rejects will go down. It might help when miners connect directly to the new server instead of going through the old one. Since the switch, we've gone from 493 connections down to 433 through the tunnel from old to new server. Going down slowly. It may be that some miners need to be restarted to force them the resolve the hostname again and get the correct server.

So we're at Hetzner now, Doc? Nice, just 8 hops away.
Round trip time of 62 ms is nothing to be scoffed at.
Stales are looking quite promising as well.

Yep, at Hetzner. They have some very nice prices. Now we just have to get the hash rate up. The new server is idling too much. Grin

Congrats on the expedient and painless migration.

Thanks, it was a big relief! Smiley

I guess that means if you are American you may now get long poll messages 0.05 seconds later. Except the server is much faster, so it's probably faster than before, also for Americans.

My pings from the southwest USA are now about 125ms.  Not sure what they were before, but that's still not bad at all.  Also, the website is blazing fast compared to what it used to be.  Thanks for all the hard work Doc!

P.S. I've never mined anywhere else...I love BitMinter!  Donated 1 BTC to 15SSRJdHfhjcRU7woXR9sYKPUXNS4ScaaB

Im not even sure what scoffing means, but I scoff at it:
to scoff == to ridicule, to make fun of, to mock

"nothing to be scoffed at" == it's pretty good

Don't look now but we just hit 150! 
I guess "bronan" was just waiting for the new server.

Stupid hot febuary is killing my hashing rate.  Yeah I didn't think to turn the AC on before I left for work because it is FEBUARY!

cgminer's auto-gpu keeping the cards "cool" but hashing power going down, down, down.

Virginia.  Usaully it is not hot but this winter has been really mild for the most part.  Today it is a high of 71.

4 rigs @ 870W = 3.5KW.  I am not sure what the air temp in my garage is but it must be high because every couple minutes cgminer drops the clocks on a GPU trying to keep them under thermal limit.  Man I wish I had IP access to my garage door opener.  Could open it wait 30 seconds, and close it. Should drop temps 5-10.

Holy jesus that site is ugly. Looks like its been run through the Geo-cities-izer machine a few times too many.

The dude does that on purpose. Wink  :p

The point was D&T could use the X10 protocol to control the garage door. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X10_%28industry_standard%29

Got I hate them.  My hypothesis is that the efficiency (and thus # of getworks per share) for some accounts is very low, significantly lower than entire rest of pool.  Which means GH per GH they put a larger load on the server.  20 GH @ 10% efficiency is like another 200GH load on the server (in terms of getwork generation).

It's obvious that CPU miners require a whole damned lot of getworks to mercifully complete one before it's gone stale.
I just wish to see them shot. Either you are able to achieve reasonable efficiency or the pools aren't interested in talking to you.
My guess is "reasonable" could be as low as 10% to allow for really slow GPUs.

OTOH, it's not that easy for one pool to fight against botnets - the owners retaliated to previous attempts with DDoS attacks which they can freely perform at will.
We'd need a coalition of major pools setting a deadline and removing CPU-mining support "for the sake of server loads", without even explicitly mentioning botnets.
Remember that cyber-thugs are still nothing more than thugs when push comes to shove.

That sounds like a great idea to me.  Does anybody here have authoritative contacts at other pools that we could ask to hop on board with phasing out CPU mining?

Even the slowest GPU should be much faster.

Average time between LP is ~300 seconds.  Lets me conservative and say 200 seconds.  If you can complete 4 billion hashes in 200 seconds you will on average have 1 share per LP.  Now some LP may be shorter but an equal number will be longer.  You are look at lower bound of 50% efficiency (2 getworks per share) in the long run..  4 billion  / 200 = 20 MH/s.  A 6750 is what 130 MH/s.  

Are there any GPU which are economical that get less than say 100 MH/s?  40 MH/s?

On edit: looks like there are some options between 40 MH/s & 100 MH/s.  However even 40 MH/s should be able to stay above 50 efficiency.  If some worker account is <50% efficiency over a large period of time it likely a botnet.  The less efficiency an account is the more load it puts (in terms of getworks) compared to a "normal" account with similar hashrate.
