Validation servers are back online.  The backends did not go down, but stratum.btcguild.com/eu-stratum.btcguild.com 3333 validation servers did due to an error in the patch to support > 2.1b difficulty on those two instances.  Re-patched and now back online.

There isn't much difference between the two other than latency.  Both of them are workin.  EU took a few extra minutes to fix due to the slower CPU on the validation server requiring more time to compile the new patch.

Having both of them added can help if you restart your miners or have frequent disconnects on your local connection.  Both VALIDATION servers have intermittent outages as botnets slam against them, occasionally causing packet loss or temporary additional DDoS filtering which may be likely to cause false positives.  This was part of why the EU server took a couple minutes longer to come back up as well.

so assuming you went from a uint32_t to a uint64_t we're golden until diff approaches 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 Cheesy

Hey elu, in addition the the idle warning SMS / text message thing you said might take time to work on. I have another suggestion I was hoping you might consider implementing a bit sooner. Nothing like today mind you, just sooner then the other sugestion heh.

While I love the idle warning emails, I was wondering if you might add something like this.

Low hashrate warning: <number here> Mh/s

So if I'm running somehing that should always be doing about 600Mh/s and it starts hasing around 550Mh/s for say, 5 minutes... asuming my warning was 550Mh/s. Then I would get an email similar to the idle warning letting me eknow that worker x is hashing below the set threshold.

Only thing I see maybe being an issue is how much time must pass before said emails are sent but 5mins seems to be a standard on most pools with this feaure.

Edit: I just realized I stepped in it a little on this one, didn't consider it would have to be a per worker basis but would still lovee this feaure.

There's no chance of a Low Hashrate warning, the amount of calculations that would require is SIGNIFICANT since the pool does not actually track worker hash rates, only their shares over a certain time frame.  This may change in the future if I find a way to integrate hashrate tracking in the backends, but there are major problems with trying to do that when it comes to the same worker being present on multiple backend servers.


Also:  Fun fact...BTC Guild is around 23% of the network hash rate and just found 8 blocks in a row on the network.  This is after having a day with relatively terrible luck including multiple 2.5+ hour blocks.  Yay Variance!

I am a N00b and a roofer, so not a lot of understanding on pools and bitcoin.  I started about a month ago and was mining about 40k shares per shift on pplns.  Now it is around 35k shares.  Is it because of old mining equipment?  BFL 60 gh/s and Red Fury 2.2 gh/s.  Any help on updating firmware or is this because of difficulty? shift ID 444424

No.

It's because of the pools increased hash rate.

Probably my lack of understanding, but how is the amount of shares affected by hashrate?  I started with producing 40k shares per shift and now at 35k per shift average.  I know that # of bitcoin paid per share decreases by difficulty, but how is the number of shares produced decreased as well.  That is what I don't understand.

A shift takes less time when the pools hash rate increases so you get fewer shares in that shorter period of time.

No.

It's because of the pools increased hash rate.
As he said it's the pools hash rate, but if you look at rankings you will see where you stand. If that number were to stay the same your payout might stay the same based on submitted shares, even as the pool rate increases. This assumes everyone who signs up has a lower rate than you. But, if the pool rate is increasing, and your ranking is dropping that to me anyway, means that people with higher hash rates than you are joining the pool, thus droppin you ranking and lowering payouts.

If everyone currently in the pool increased their hash rate but kept the same rankings, their payouts should be the same.

That's just my 2c but that's what I believe.

Basically, the lower (5 compared to 10) your ranking the better the payout should be and the adverse for a higher ranking being a smaller payout.
