You know something that makes me laugh is the fact that people come on here complain that the pool sucks. WELL considering that BTCGuild is the only pool that is racking in 252.58TH<- They GOT to be doing something right!  Grin

Rock on BTCGuild.  Cool

I just question why people always seem to blame the pool, like it's discriminating against them specifically while the other 240-260 TH/s worth of users run without issue.  Code does not discriminate.  The problem is always user settings/hardware settings, otherwise it would be affecting thousands of other users.  You'd get a lot more than one person posting if that was the case.


That said, right now, there is a small problem on 1 of the EU servers Sad.  Trying to route everybody to the other server right now until the problem is resolved (ETA: 10 minutes).  Looking into options for what to do with the EU servers right now, since those are the only ones having issues these days.  It's very tough to get a provider that matches the quality of our US datacenter, especially when you have no physical presence internationally.

Most datacenters have good uptime, but I've yet to have one that didn't at least have periods of high packetloss once a month or so.  Additionally, the setup in Chicago has significant upstream filtering, fat pipes, and I'm able to push nullroutes for my IPs to their network during attacks as well.  99.9% is not enough, especially when they never count periods of very high packet loss as downtime.

I have moved around but Like i said i have been happy with softlayer. They just build a new Level3 colation datacenter(or so i think it is. it says level3) I might be looking at to move some hardware to.

Sadly, level3 is normally the cause of a lot of packet loss in my experience with all the dedicated servers BTC Guild has moved between over the years before it went to full colo in the US.

I haven't dealt directly with SoftLayer, but I was on a SoftLayer reseller (I think).  I was also at CoreXchange which primarily used Level3 peering for the traffic at the time.  Obviously a reseller adds another step in the chain for the connections to break, but normally traceroutes would reveal the problem outside of their system and somewhere at the peering to get out of the datacenter.


EDIT:  Let's clear this out of the pool thread going forward.  I'm sure people have had enough posts about dedicated servers/datacenters for one night Smiley.

Side note. Have you ever thought about doing litecoin?

Block Erupter Blades are now available on the BTC Guild store page.  Orders of 10 units will include a backplane for easier setup/installation.

Units are in stock and shipping within 48 hours (normally same/next business day based on time of order).  Unlike USB Erupters, these will not remain on sale for the next batch once stock has run out.  The store is set to mark 'Out of Stock' in advance to allow people time to send their payments in, so if you see 'Out of Stock', check back on the forum to find out if there will be more available.  At this time I do not know if additional inventory will be ordered beyond the current batch of 100.

there is an error in spec

Hash Rate    10-11 GH/s+
Power    9-10A @ 12v (100-120w)
Shipping Time    Ships Within 2 Days
Price    4.60 BTC
Shipping (US)    Free
Shipping (Int'l.)    TBD - Not Yet Available

I got 5 blades not overclocked (1.09V old ones but new have same specs)
it took measured 360W so it takes about 72W each.
Hashrate reported was about 52GH/s from pool so 10.4 GH/s per blade

Is there any reason why I can't run eu-stratum and stratum in Load Balanced mode in BFGMiner?  I'm thinking it might help if the eu-stratum server is a bit wobbly?  All the work ends up in the same place, right?  Huh

I'm putting about 4GH/s in at the moment, shortly to increase to about 30GH/s.

I've never been happy with the balance nor load balance.

So I run multiple instances of my miner with equal number of Erupters to multiple pools.  That way I know I'm getting equal hash rate to the places I want.

There is no real point, that I know of, to load balance between servers of the same pool.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.

The new blades default to 1.2v according to everything I've read, and are overclocked as a result compared to the original models.

USB Block Erupter coupons (0.15/unit + 0.05 handling per order) will soon be extended to any order placed above 0.29 BTC, once the currently ordered units are packed & shipped.  This will probably be in the next 2-3 hours.

Block Erupter Coupons have now been distributed to any order placed above the current retail price.  These coupons have no expiration.  Currently coupons are limited 1:1 on past orders, but this will be extended as new inventory is received.

Those prices are the cost for resellers to obtain the units.  There will always be a markup from resellers for shipping and a profit.

Website/Database Maintenance

There will be a maintenance period tomorrow at approximately 3 PM Pacific Time.  During this time the website will be temporarily unavailable as the database is moved to the new server!  The pool servers will also have a brief restart once the new server migration is ready to be completed.

The website will simply have a placeholder message during maintenance notifying users that it is under maintenance, in order to make the migration as quickly as possible.  This transition will speed up website response times on data heavy pages, and significantly reduce the lag when major scripts execute.

I wonder if i will have to restart my Raspberry pi inorder for it to reconnect to the pooling server. I really hope not. It may not restart. Its at that stage where its working and i dont want to touch it. It may not work anymore if i do.. Cry

So did you move DataCenters again or you staying up there?
Should of gotten with me at the beginning of this year i have a rack full of server i sold for $1k i had 4 - poweredge 2850, 1 Poweredge 1950, 2 poweredge 2650, and 3 poweredge 6600 i think they were.

Holy smokes someone has a 26.83Th monster on the pool.. Shocked

I can't keep up with you guys!  I'm at an amazing 4.5 GH/s setup, and only starting to make enough for 2 erupters (push to 5.1 GH).  Actually will be 4.1 GH because I will be shutting down my GPU miners (1 GH total).

I don't know how you guys afford to build these monsters!

Put something in my tip jar if I made your day. Smiley
