All I can guess is some kind of routing issue.  I'm connecting from California, and I've been testing out poclbm for NMC stale rates.  The most my logs show are a single comm error that sometimes shows up a second before a longpoll, never has to do more than 1 retry.

Did one restart just to see if anything changes for the few people having issues.

I'm still getting allot of error's.  But my hashrate and shares per minute are still good so I'm not really worried about it.  I'm just reporting information.

The web site is very intermittent too.
Thanks for checking,
Sam

Sounds like you're having a routing issue, 100%.  On my end (and I'm halfway across the country, so it's not a local test), I've yet to have errors and the website has been loading instantly.  Nothing I can really do about that.  Could be local on your end, could be your ISP, or could be a random router between you and the server acting up.

Well, I took my own advice and ran DNS Benchmark and found some better performing DNS servers and updated them in my firewall/gateway.  Now I'm not getting the connection errors.  I would have thought that once the miner had the IP address of it's destination that it wouldn't do another query unless it got an error?

Not sure if that was the  problem or just a coincidence.  But things are running more smoothly now.
Thanks,
Sam

I would have thought that once the miner had the IP address of it's destination that it wouldn't do another query unless it got an error?

If that was true, the miner wouldn't follow DNS changes, e.g. for failing over to an alternative pool address while the original still resolves & works somewhat, even if only poorly. It's better if the miner doesn't make any assumptions since doing a DNS resolve is usually very fast and otherwise, if the shit hits the fan, it would probably do so harder if it blindly kept using a cached IP.

Also, see all the load balancing done by pool operators via DNS, unreliable as it may be.

Hey eleuthria, thanks for the Hall of Fame 26th Row....I appreciate it.

You might want to check out the 'Blocks Found' portion, as when I was in top 25 of 'Blocks found', it read "2" (as I found 2 blocks), but now that I am below 25, using the 26th row, it shows "2.00 mh/s".
Just thought I'd give you a heads up.

Thanks again.

Whoops, fixed Smiley.  I haven't found any blocks since the last reset, so I didn't see the typo/copy paste error.

The only PPS pool with a lower fee is ABC Pool at this time.  No merged mining and they state the 0% is an introductory offer.  A few people have posted on the forums stating that even with the 0% fees, the performance and invalid rate (pay for stales isn't exactly true) makes the fee difference negligible in terms of miner payout, before NMC is even factored into miner earnings.

Very nice post. Is there another 900+ post user that is as oblivious to stickies and thread titles in the 'Pool' section as you Roll Eyes ?

Looking for any new suggestions as the weekend approaches for me.  Current plans are:

1) Miner offline notifications will be returning to some users, slowly rolling out to the whole pool.  Will likely be adding SMS notifications on top of emails.
2) Mining Teams
3) NMC added to the API

Mining Teams = useless
SMS = most important if works for all countries also UK etc.
NMC API = important as well

Thanks !

Definate connection problems here.

My miners keep switching over to my failover pool - fans keep spinning up and down.

API updated.  All the fields that have a value for NMC use the same name, with _nmc appended.

The API also now displays your shares/stales/dupes/unknowns since last reset, as well as total.  Total values use the same names as before, since reset values have _since_reset appended.

As usual, any properly written API JSON parser should still continue working as normal since the format for the previous values has not changed at all.  Only new values were added, nothing was removed.

I noticed my machine is hashing a lot less compared to the switch over (from btc to pooled mining), any reason why?

I'm assuming you mean the switch from BTC to merged mining.  There is NO tradeoff of speed with merged mining unless you're experiencing connection errors.  The hashes are the exact same work your miner has always done.

On the contrary, I've noticed it's a tad faster--on average, I've noticed a 5-second/share reduction.  However, I have noticed more long poll(ing) requests (hopefully I used the correct term) since the switch to merged mining.  I just saw my miner finish off 7 shares in 5 second but then submit a long poll.  Does that mean anything?

how about "round_shares" and "round_shares-nmc" in the API?  I would like to use your pool as a backup.

There's no such thing as rounds, we're pure PPS.
