Also, from the website, doesn't mention the tcp thing at all.

CGMiner is one of the most advanced and full feature miners available. It runs in a command line, but allows configuration while running using the keyboard. After launching cgminer, you will be prompted with the following:

URL: stratum.btcguild.com:3333
Username: username_workername (example: MoreBloodWine_1)
Password: 123 (or leave blank, it does not matter)

-------

Miner Connection Details
Stratum Servers
Host (USA)   stratum.btcguild.com:3333
Host (EU)   eu-stratum.btcguild.com:3333
Username    MoreBloodWine_1
Password   (anything)

Because the website doesn't go into explaining how to setup config files, since most users that need to know how to connect a miner have no interest or understanding of how to do it.  If you just type in stratum.btcguild.com/eu-stratum.btcguild.com:3333 into the prompt, it works fine.  You only need stratum+tcp:// when working directly in the config file (and I'm not even positive if it's required there).

The reason that luck is not zero sum is that producing a valid block is a statistically-independent event for every single individual candidate block hash. It doesn't matter who else is solving what (with the exception of an orphan race / whether or not you're mining the main consensus chain), the expected number of blocks solved by a given pool in a given timeframe is purely a function of difficulty/target and the number of hashes per unit time that pool produces.

The stratum servers will be getting restarted in 30 minutes (12:30 PM, PST) in order to deploy a fix.  bfgminer 4.1+ added TLS to Stratum as the default even though it was never a part of the protocol, and this ended up causing connections to hang for 1 minute+ when trying to connect to BTC Guild, and sometimes simply failing entirely.

The restart will only take a second to complete, but check your miners if they stop working, since historically there have always been certain miners which can't handle a disconnect properly.


EDIT/UPDATE:  Restart completed, everything appears to be working as expected.

was this necessary to do, basically without notice?  if the issue was with bfgminer wouldn't it be the responsibility of those that run it to revert to a previous version or change from the default - rather than bounce all miners?

Any way to look to see which pool solved blocks in real time?  I'm interested to see which pool is getting the good luck while we are in the bad.

Luck isn't zero-sum.  One pool being lucky has no impact on another pool being unlucky and vice-versa.  http://blockorigin.pfoe.be has the most accurate tracking of which pools solved which blocks, normally on a 5-10 block delay I believe.

Thanks for the link.  I was curious as to who was solving the blocks.  This was helpful.

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

Not all are aware of the issue and could possibly be lead to think btcguild was defective, and flood his inbox saying dafuq is going on.

He's just heading off the POTENTIAL problem before it happens

Although yes a little more time (24 hrs) would have been nicer

If there was any actual downtime expected, a 24h+ window would have been provided.  For properly working miner configurations/hardware, the restart was virtually transparent.

in hindsight it was more of personal issue for me getting upset due to the to Luke-jr/bfgminer connection - sending some hashes to ghash.io didn't help either.

thanks for your continued efforts keeping btcguild the best managed/performing pool out there.

What do I have to do to gain private server access? I have PMed eleuthria, but have not got any response yet. Do I have to qualify somehow, or anything? Are there any requirements?

Thanks.

You need a large farm to gain private server access, where "large" is defined by eleuthria. I suspect you would need to be running several TH to quality.

Is 15 TH/s enough to qualify?

If you have 15 Th/s and put it on the pool, it will notify you for private server information.  I don't respond to private server requests over the forum because of how many times it has been hacked.

So just to be clear, you have a notification set up that when user reached x amount of power that it notifies you of the servers availability ?

I know I asked this once before but don't recall your answer but what if any are the benefits to gaining access ?

It's a variable speed requirement based on recent hash rate (both user and pool).  The private servers are isolated from public servers for DDoS protection.  Similar to how during the last major attack, users were receiving notifications of alternate DNS that pointed to "semi-private" servers, except these are given out in advance to high hash rate users.

Once your in do you stay in ?

Ex. Pool hash continues to grow while the user adds occasional extra hash.

Sounds good. If I do not receive the notification, will ask you in PM again.

Once they've been notified of the private pool they are able to use it indefinitely.  It's purely a barrier to entry in order to keep it from becoming too public and forcing me to make the "Super Elite Invitation Only" Private Server.

A few withdrawals failed this morning because a user kept an obscenely high balance and withdrew it all at once, emptying the hot wallet.  It's being refilled now and the failed withdrawals will be pushed through.

A brief (2 hours or less hopefully) maintenance is happening on the hot wallet due to today's failed payouts.  There is an unconfirmed payout that is "stuck" currently, attempting to be done twice.  The hot wallet is being rebuilt which will correct the issue.  The concern is if another payout is prepared that uses the stuck transaction as one of its inputs, it could cause a chain of transactions which may never confirm.

Another post will be made when the maintenance is complete.  This maintenance has no effects on the pool's block solve rate (the mining servers have zero communication with the wallet server).
