There doesn't seem to be any problems with the private server which I believe is in the US.

There is a private server? Why is it private? You pay more fees or something?

Is there an ETA when we will be able to connect to the US server again?
I think we have 5 or 6 confirmed cases already.



Access to the private server is by invitation.  In the past, Eleuthria has offered access to many others during persistent DoS attacks.

So us public scum bags pay the same fees you pay but you have access to "private" servers we can't access? Nepotism at its best here. I guess the fees I pay aren't that good to get into the "private" club.


Hey, why don't you ask for access?  If you have some significant hashing power I'm sure eleuthria would be happy to oblige.

But then again, you're such a DICK he might not.

Lol

What is this high school here? I'm a DICK, get over it and deal with it. Ignore me. I was the first one to mention having connection problems and bitched about it. So what. The pool operator has to keep his public pool going just as smoothly as the private pool or that means lost revenue. If everyone jumps on the private pool then it wouldn't be private anymore, would it.

Alright damn it. I'm a dick, but I'll apologize for being one last night. Me and the wife had a horrible argument that set me off and she's the only one in this world that knows how to press my buttons. Compounding my misery last night I also had a 4TB hard drive die on my media server which caused a big headache. Then to finally sit down and apply a new shiney firmware to my miner only to not able to connect to the Guild was too much for me to handle. It was just a really bad night.

You could have had the EU server as failover/backup and you would have been fine, it would have just switched over when the US frontend server went kablooey.

Sorry for calling you a dick, lol.  But you do see in the title of this thread "private servers"?  It's not like it is a hidden feature of BTCGuild.  So your rant did seem to be a bit over-the-top.

Could've been worse.  Try being in my shoes where I was too sick to get out of bed for more than a few minutes at a time, and there weren't any signs of issues I could identify via my phone until a few hours after it started (due to the fact that it was only stopping new/restarted connections).

The private servers have been around with BTC Guild, and actually quite a few other pools have had them as well, for over a year.  Whenever a strong, persistent DDoS hits, one of the first things pools do is try to get a server running and slowly spread the connection information to users with a long history, or a high speed.  BTC Guild pre-emptively gives out this information to high end accounts.  The logic is pretty simple:  The more you have invested, the more downtime hurts you.  Obviously it's in my best interests AND the user's best interest to have a server designated for those types of clients.

There have also been semi-private (designated this way because the criteria for receiving them was not strict) servers distributed during previous attacks, most of which are still online and available to this day.

How come BTC Guild reports much higher hashing rate when I'm connected to the EU server then the US server? I'm located in the Northeast of the US.

It wouldn't...either you're comparing bad numbers (one with downtime in the average window), or "much higher" is only a few %, which is standard variance.

The fact is people who mine with their own equipment pay 0 fees. Whatever I mine with my share of the pool I withdraw at 100%.

No you don't. You pay a withdrawal fee.

I'm running from CA on US servers and not experiencing any problems or drops in hashrate.

I just got a new miner last night and was having trouble getting it to stay connected to the pool. I tried both the US and EU URL's but it would mine for 5 to 10 minutes and then stop. I tried several times and was worried I got hosed on this one. I tried connecting it to another pool and it stayed running just fine over night to current. Not sure what could be going on, my other miners have been connected for the last week without issues. Just thought I'd report it, I'm going to try connecting back here tonight when I get home from work.

Does anybody else see something wonky with the PPLNS payout of block 280856?

I've been mining with a constant hashrate past 24 hours or so, and this block is showing half the normal payout of the rest? Just wondering if this is a display glitch, a calculation glitch, or if there's a legitimate reason.

(EDIT: corrected to PPLNS, not pps)

Same here.  Block 280856 payout is only half what it should be.  My hashrate has not changed and my submitted shares per PPLNS shift did not go down but it show my contribution % and payout for the block as only half of what it should be.

Well glad it's not just me.

In other news, I checked all the open shifts and the block shows there as a full payout, in all of them, so I'm willing to bet it's just a display glitch. We'll see what happens after the next found block I suppose.

EDIT:  Rewritten to reflect updated information


The "Block Rewards" table is a calculated value, since your actual rewards are determined by the shift payments.  It's fairly accurate, usually within a few decimals (normally past the ones displayed since rewards are tracked out to 14 decimals).

It looks like the block in question was recorded twice.  This was likely due to bitcoind being extremely slow (it's time to defrag the payout wallet).  I've tweaked the table where it records blocks to prevent a block from showing up twice.

Since the Block Rewards table is keyed based on the Block #, but the payouts are keyed based on an internal ID, it was looking up the rewards for the block twice (since it was recorded twice), but only used one ID, resulting in only half the reward being displayed.


I've removed the double-payment of that block, and the value in the Block Rewards table should now be showing up correctly.
