Love the pool. Good work. Just making sure our mining is voting for the asset layer hard fork. I don't see anything about this on the website. Thanks!

Singapore server online. Still working on improving those loading times, they should be better now but sometimes it's not so fast Smiley

We aren't currently generating our own blocks actually, difficulty got so high it made more sense to spread the hashrate to get lower variance. But I'll still keep them updated, of course, thanks for the reminder!

Payout times changed to once every 20 minutes per server, hopefully that's OK. I want to keep the amount of owed coins smaller.

The payout rate has been temporarily dropped, as I was investigating a problem with extra shares being credited to people. Just look at those graphs on Helsinki or Virginia, lots of people have huge inexplicable spikes upwards. I'm hoping the drain is finally plugged now, watching it closely.

EDIT: It's indeed looking better, as I guess you can see from the lack of payout delays. Payout rate starts climbing back to 100% now

As a result of the changes ensuring no extra shares get counted, all the stratum ports now automatically restart multiple times per day in a continuous rotation. Connections are automatically routed to the slowest port, so the chance that such a restart causes even a second of idling is low. But most miner programs today are too dumb to return from a backup pool on their own. These automatic restarts can trigger the switch to a backup pool, so if you have other pools than Elitehash servers defined, it might get annoying to track if rigs gets stuck on backups too often. Please let me know if this has become a bigger issue - the automatic restarts have been there since the beginning, but with much less frequency until now.

I've toned down the automatic restarts, clearly it wasn't a good approach. Now the needless restarts are kept to a minimum, while rejects are being more closely monitored with automatic restarts of specific ports in case of problems. Overall reject rate is again below 1%, which is the target. It can be higher than elsewhere on this pool, but the high payout rate acts as compensation.

Rejects have been over 1% today, my new approach is to increase the payout rate in situations like this. It's working as intended, can't avoid the higher reject rates totally, but the higher payout rates should compensate. For a moment I thought about making the rate go up automatically in such situations, but that would so ripe for exploitation it's better done manually.

Worker lists and Paris server were added this month. Not sure where the miners are going, as Raven is still at the top in WhatToMine. I'm a bit hesitant to add every new coin, at least until they've been proven somehow.

Payout rate is going up now, to help gather more miners & also because higher rates really are easier to sustain with a smaller pool. Suggestions for improvements are welcome, as always. A payout list with txids is coming, but I don't have any other big improvements planned now.

I'm about to make a switch to this stratum server I made from scratch. It's replacing 17k lines of code I didn't write with a neat, 400 line package that isn't hard to understand, at least for me.

The dip in the hashrate graph is from my 1st test with actual miners (in the Helsinki server), which to not much surprise uncovered a bug or two Smiley Everyone was sent the *full* amount of what they should have earned during that 4 hours of bugged share counting, calculated from the previous 4 hours: https://ravencoin.network/tx/3143984c32d0ec6148fc8f171e795f262b150e676cd188c38fc571f0756cbaba. In addition to the ~50% or so of shares that weren't lost due to these bugs.

The switch should be transparent to miners, but the end result should be definitely noticeable: share difficulties won't be absurdly high anymore. During the last test, I had a constant 32 for 4 hours.

(For anyone interested, the bug was related to duplicated stratum message IDs. Easy to fix by adding an ID translator.)

The new stratum server is now working great, still a bit of extra latency but it's not really causing noticeable rejects. Should be relatively easy to fix now. Connections to Helsinki & Paris were a bit unstable this past week, but now they are stable. Got the CPU usage down to 1% and fixed this pesky problem with stale connections.

Raven is now the only pool on Elitehash, as I'm reworking the code for better scalability. Worst bugs have been fixed during the summer, and I'm sorry against any hashrate loss due to them. I sent a covering payout for most, and will do a final check of the history after I've done this final rework. There could still be a hiccup or two, but I think I've learned from a lot of mistakes here Smiley

In the meantine, Raven payout rate is steadily increasing again, and it might even go over 100% soon!

Elitehash naturally supports the algorithm change for Raven, on October 01

Miners still have to change their config files, so the port number should probably change. Everyone just has to edit those configs, there's no way around it. Changing the port number is a good way to filter out those miners who didn't react and stil try to mine x16r. They'd be shown as rejected hashrate otherwise.
