WARNING TO CGMINER USERS
A bug has been reported by two users so far with cgminer 2.8.1.  This bug is so far only being shown to affect workers that are very fast (> 4 GH/s).  There seems to be a bug in cgminer 2.8.1's difficulty targetting, and when a miner either hits difficulty=4, or is supposed to hit difficulty=8 (not yet confirmed which part is causing the problem), it is having drastically reduced share submissions.

If you are having this problem, downgrade to a 2.7.x version of cgminer and use the stratum proxy, or regular getwork pools.  I've posted on the cgminer thread and am waiting for a response from ckolivas.
There is a hotfix update of cgminer to version 2.8.2 which fixes this bug. Anyone mining on btcguild with cgminer 2.8.0 or 2.8.1 is strongly encouraged to update.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight - trap all small miners into your stupid pool in order to prevent blockchain from becoming bloated. Fuck you!

I swear - if someone gives me a button which would permanently eliminate current and any future pool owners, I'd press
it right now. What next showoff of your power we can expect? Miners with less than 1 GHash/sec can't join? Fuck you!

You're welcome to fuck off and mine solo.  If 0.10 BTC is too much for a miner to accumulate before needing to withdraw, then maybe they should reconsider mining, since they're obviously losing money by doing so.  I gave recommended numbers, not mandatory amounts.

Liked it better that way!

Looks like cgminer's stratum support doesnt work properly on windows yet. You can bypass it by using http and --fix-protocol options but that defeats the purpose and you may as well use 2.7.7. Linux users stratum should work fine (I use it myself).

You're welcome to fuck off and mine solo.

Sure, but not before I withdraw my BTCs from your pool. I don't need them, but I ain't gonna leave any for you.

If 0.10 BTC is too much for a miner to accumulate before needing to withdraw, then maybe they should reconsider mining, since they're obviously losing money by doing so.

That's not your fucking business. Leave profit-oriented suggestions for profit-oriented scumbags like you are.

What I don't understand is why someone hasn't kicked this guy off the forums he is obviously a troll looking to stir up some shit.  If you don't understand how PPS works or pools work or why your slow card isn't creating hundreds of BTC for you perhaps you should do you homework and ask the right questions.  I have been mining BTC for over a year now and I have been with BTC Guild for almost that entire time. Eleuthria has been informative, professional and an all around stand up guy!  I am a loyal BTC Guild miner for life... keep up the good work eleuthria I appreciate you.

And I've updated cgminer yet again. Hopefully 2.8.3 should be the one that brings stable stratum mining with cgminer to the masses.

Thanks for the consistent updates when rolling out the stratum support.  Great to see the bugs getting reported and fixed in a 24 hour window normally.

The Stratum pools (Chicago, Dallas, and Germany) will be doing rolling restarts tomorrow at 10 AM (PDT, 5 PM GMT).  This will be adding back the "Block Solved" counters, and they will only be counting BTC blocks.  After the fix, the Hall of Fame will be resetting the Blocks Found counter.  Your old stats will be made visible at the bottom of the page just so you can look at your old number if you feel the need Smiley.

This will be the first restart of Stratum pools in over 2 weeks.  Everything has gone better than expected, with the only hiccups being some bugs in the first releases of cgminer to support Stratum.  The pool loads have gone to record low numbers, and this evening we've had a few peaks above 800 GH/s on the Stratum pools.  Bring on ASIC mining, the Stratum pools are ready for more power!

The expected downtime is around 3 seconds per server, with a 30 second window between restarting each server.  The Stratum based pools restart significantly faster than the old PoolServerJ servers, so downtime will be minimal.

EDIT/UPDATE:  Just to clarify, these restarts will be happening SATURDAY at 10 AM PDT/5 PM GMT.  The word "tomorrow" is a bit ambiguous since it's almost Saturday in PDT time, and it's already Saturday for most the world.

Rolling restarts are over.  All stratum servers are up and running after a few seconds of downtime to update the software.

Not sure if this has been asked and answered already, if it has I apologize.

Will the current (non stratum) interface be removed at some point?  I've been mining for a little over a year at BTC Guild with a non standard FPGA setup (6 PCIe FPGA dev boards, only 2250 MH/s total) using my own software to get and send work to the pool (since my FPGA interfaces aren't supported by the popular mining apps).

If there's a plan to move to stratum only connections, I'll assume you'll give everybody a heads up before the old protocol is shutdown?  That kind of news would get me off my butt and motivate me to actually revise my software to work with the new protocol  Grin.

There are no plans to eliminate the non-stratum interface entirely.  However, as more people move to Stratum, I may eventually change DNS entries and merge multiple pool servers together, eventually pointing all of the getwork connections to a single server.  In this scenario, you would eventually lose the ability to run multiple BTC Guild servers as failovers, aside from one in the US and one in Germany.

Since I colocate my servers in Chicago and Dallas with multiple servers in each, this may never happen since it would not save me anything on operating costs, outside of possibly freeing up enough amps to fit another server in the rack without going over my limit.

The Stratum pool in Chicago will become the default pool, since our Chicago connection is significantly higher quality than the one in Dallas TX.  Chicago has had only 1 minute of downtime in 2012 which may have been outside of my switch in the DC, but I was never able to confirm due to the shortness of the outage.

Sorry, which one is chicago? (DNS name?)

Is it possible to specify the stratum server directly to cgminer without having it switch off the getwork pool?

Every DNS except for de.btcguild.com (and a few other very old European based DNS entries) point to Chicago currently, unless you connect to dallas.btcguild.com port 9332.

Right now I'm not allowing a direct stratum connection because it's running on different ports depending on which server it's on.  Once I have a chance to clean up all the stale ports so that it's consistent between all servers I'll publish a list of direct stratum DNS:port combinations.

With all the changes lately, I was wondering if I'm still connected to the optimal server(s). Is stratum.btcguild.com ok to connect to? Also, is the "private" pool from a while back still valid? It works, I am still using it for the backup backup pool for non-stratum rigs, just wanted to make sure.

Thanks again.

Yes, stratum.btcguild.com is ok (it's Dallas, forgot to list that one).  I don't like to point people there anymore because it's not on port 8332 like the others, so unless you know the port you can't get onto it.

The "private" server is still around, though it's not protected like it was before.  I had to take down the EC2 instances because the costs were completely insane on bandwidth.  With the absolutely terrible luck for the last 4 weeks straight, I can't afford to be spending an extra $600/mo on EC2 bandwidth.  Once stratum support is close to universal, I might try using it again.
