Updated post with more info. All three were taken down less than a week ago. I guess they're back again.

slush: down
eligius: down
btcguild: INTERMITTENT  (Eleuth has a lot of practice at combating DDos and apparently one of the easier to work with upstream providers for filtering) imho...
ars: DOWN
deepbit: DOWN...


If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Once again....when a pool's website goes down, that's when it stops being shown in that chart-- not when the actual mining pool goes down, so it's basically like renaming existing resources as "Other". Big deal.

I know this. Miner's from each pool will have to report back whether they're still up or not.

The big three are getting hit at the moment. BTCguild, Deepbit, and Slush are down.

Insert; Stupid, very lacking chat here...

  Yes, the chart is certainly not an accurate measure of whether pools are operating or not. I personally mine at some of the ones that show as 'other' but have not added a 'heartbeat' report for the chart. And, why should they?

  But the current DDos situation is very real.......

Also, if everyone's miners switched to different pools and/or solo when shit like this happens, wouldn't that still keep the network safe?

Yes, but the DDOS from a week ago shows that most people didn't do either of those.

A friendly reminder, pool-hopper or not, a local proxy such as BitHopper or CherryPicking, configured with multiple backup pools, is a great way to help miners mitigate attacks like this.

I've been busy chugging along at other pools while Deepbit and Eligius remain offline for the duration of this attack.

That's odd because mine are down.  Going solo.

Not noticing anything hugely unusual @ http://blockchain.info/pools . The global hash rate is down, but it doesn't look like an attempted 51% attack.

Last night, I finally got around to setting up a CPU miner with port 8333 forwarded in the wake of last week's attack. It should be caught up to the block-chain within half an hour. The connection is intermittant though: if nobody uses the computer for an hour, it goes to sleep (was originally 20 minutes).

Edit: I decided to go with to go with the most power efficient "family" computer (running win7, bitcoin is running under a limited user) after finding out another computer I was considering using draws 170W at full load and probably runs at a slower speed.

The pool operators should allow miners to provide the pool with an ip address where the pool can dial the miner to establish a connection...with a bit of software running on the miner's machine, it would allow the pool to initiate outbound connections to the members of the pool and operate though a bank of ip addresses that shield the pool from these DDOS attacks.

If the pools don't do something like this, then people will start resorting to setting up their own smaller, private pools if these DDOSes continue.

1. dynamic ip's.
2. If ddos if massive enough ip filters wont help.
3. There is lots and lots of small pools, everything is fine.
