That makes me feel a lot better. I left my workers mining in hopes the shares were being counted. Glad to know all those shares will get paid! This is why I stick with this pool. Thanks eleuthria!

I'm going to have to do some work to calculate payout miners for some of that time.  It won't be 100% perfect, but anybody that is a dedicated miner should come out AHEAD of their normal 24 hour earnings.  I've made changes to the server logs now that we're on a stronger server [with significantly more HDD space], so if it happens again I can do a complete recalculation for the entire period with exact payment to the share.

Current plan is the following, unless I can pull some extra information from the partial logs:
  1) Calculate the average shares per hour submitted by each miner for the 3 hours before the problem.  Multiple that hourly average by 8 (downtime was very close to 8 hours).
  2) Take the shares submitted by each miner during that 8 hour time frame the previous day.

  Whichever number is LARGER, will be added to your earnings, at a 0% fee.

I noticed an unsually high number of failed job requests this morning. Were you doing something with the servers 5 - 10 min ago?

Should be fixed in the next 60 seconds.  One kernel tweak didn't carry over after rebooting the servers.

For anybody that has an unusual number of idles/connection errors [not counting this morning when the servers rebooted], try the following:

Change your miner from btcguild.com:8332 to one of the following (this is the recommended order to try):

mine3.btcguild.com:8332 ([removed] by direct IP)
mine2.btcguild.com:8332 ([removed] by direct IP)

Wow what a nice improvement. Perhaps there is something odd with the proxy/load balancer as when connecting directly work units are being dished out with amazing speed.

UPDATE: after restarting the miner 5 min ago a few failed job requests occured (5) in total (3.0% of total), but I guess it is normal to have a few of them once in a while, no? (network issues, etc)

Update: 10 failed job requests

Please update your post again in a while with fresh stats.  These types of problems really shouldn't be happening especially if you're connceting directly to the IP.  Other than the obvious problems that can occur when 2 LPs hit in a short window.

Looks like this load balancing setup just doesn't work well enough.  I'll be making some changes to the servers this afternoon after fixing the earnings from last night.  Remove the round robin, and move back to having 2 servers [primary + 2 backups].  Users will be able to manually point at any of the 3 (2 of which should be as effective as a private server due to how many users use the default).

Good to see you're on the ball as usual eleuthria.

Figured it was basically an accounting error or somesuch, and you would make it right eventually, though it was a bit of a shock to see my miners chugging away without their share counts working. Wink

btw, where are the new servers located? Spread out geographically like they used to be?

They're located in Chicago, IL.  Colocated with ServerCentral (nLayer).

mine2.btcguild.com:9332 (50.31.135.5 by direct IP)
mine1.btcguild.com:9332 (50.31.135.4 by direct IP)

Planning on leaving these DNS entries active for a while? I'll toss them in a cgminer script and set it to load balance. Any others you'd want us to add?

Those entries will stick around, but some changes may be made in the next few days:

1) Removing the load balance round robin (the overhead outweighs the benefit)
2) mine1.btcguild.com will become the default (btcguild.com)
3) mine2 and mine3 will be accessible directly via 8332 (9332 will redirect to 8332 though).


The setup will be *similar* to what happened back in June - September of last year.  You can pick your BTC Guild server.  They're still in the same physical location, and using the same central database server this time, so there won't be any ugly synchronization issues.  Obviously, mine2/mine3 will be what power users want to utilize.

I'm preparing to post the calculated shares for users from last night.  The rewards will show up as Difficulty = 1312154.  This is because the fee is currently hard coded.  1312154 is 1.052632x the current difficulty, which brings the reimbursement to the equivalent of current difficulty at a 0% fee.  The amount of shares you'll be credited is calculated as follows:

  The average shares you submitted per hour between 19:00 and 22:00 [the problem started ~24:00].  Multiplied by 8 [actual downtime was closer to 7.5 hrs].

Because some miners come & go, I stuck to only running the automatic reimbursement for miners who were active just before the problem happened.  If you regularly start your miners between 24:00 and 8:00 EST, but not between 19:00 and 22:00 (EST), please send me an email with your username, and I will investigate your mining patterns and run a special reimbursement on the account.

I am very sorry this happened, it was an error that the pool has never encountered before, and I have to take the hit (~360 BTC) to make things right.  I purposely reduced logging after moving to PPS because an issue requiring manual calculations based on the sharelog have never cropped up since the pool started, and performance was taking a hit keeping extensive logs.  I've extended the pool logging significantly in light of this event, thanks to the new server having significantly more storage space and processing power.


UPDATE:  The earnings have been updated for the calculation identified above.

Glad to hear about the server thing going back to how it was last year.  Also was getting some connection issues popping up about 15-20min ago.

The servers have been updated to reflect the changes in my previous post (responding to dlasher).

btcguild.com is now pointed only at 50.31.135.4, via port 8332.
mine1.btcguild.com is also pointed at 50.31.135.4, via port 8332.
mine2.btcguild.com is 50.31.135.5, via port 8332.
mine3.btcguild.com is 50.31.135.6, via port 8332.

Port 9332 is working as well, but may stop at some point in the future, so using 8332 is preferred.
