Port 80 users:  Change your mining server to:  port80.btcguild.com

The new load balancers rest on 'btcguild.com', and all DNS entries have been moved to that round robin.  Because of this, port 80 on the load balancers must redirect users to https://www.btcguild.com (due to the frequency of people not typing in 'www').

port80.btcguild.com will allow you to continue mining on port 80, and also experience the benefit of load balancing across the multiple backends.

So does that mean we should switch from mine2 or 3 to port80.btcguild.com?

If you have to mine on port 80, yes.  Port 80 no longer works when pointed at mine2 or mine3.btcguild.com, due to the overhaul of how the load balancing works.

Oh, that's why it's happening. Thanks, I really should check this thread more often.

Actually, you looked just after I discovered (and fixed) the issue.  Port 80 mining is one of those very rare cases, so when doing a massive overhaul on server setup, it wasn't something I was thinking about.  This morning I woke up to an email about Port 80 mining being broken, so I immediately went to work to correct the error since I knew exactly what was causing it.

Summary of Recent Changes
The last 48 hours have had some large changes to BTC Guild's server setup.  The following is a list of what has changed, what to do if you have any problems in the new setup.

Changes/Updates
1) BTC Guild is now using many load balancing servers in round robin DNS.  All DNS entries (except de.btcguild.com) have been updated to use the round robin load balancing.
2) There is now a payout confirmation page for BTC and NMC withdrawals, warning users that some exchanges may not allow you to reuse an address.
3) Database improvements have taken place in many areas, drastically increasing website performance for some of the routine tasks.

Problems/Fixes
1) Port 80 mining was broken for approximately 10 hours due to the new load balancing setup.  To resume port 80 mining, change your server from mine2/mine3, to 'port80.btcguild.com'
2) If you are seeing a large number of 'Unknown' rejected shares, please restart your miners.  It seems that some miners (exact clients/versions not yet determined) will add the new DNS entries from round robin, but still keep the old IP as well, meaning it might submit shares to the wrong server.  Restarting the miner should resolve the issue.


Aside from the above, I am encouraging users to stop using direct IP to connect their miners if possible.  There are still a couple users mining on an IP that has been inactive for weeks.  Please use the hostname (btcguild.com or port80.btcguild.com) to connect.  If you must use an IP to connect, please update to 107.21.115.160.



UPDATE:  Some emails are going out to the top users of BTC Guild to provide a way to bypass the load balancing/proxy layer.  As time goes on, more users will be given the credentials.  If you receive the email, please do not post a copy of it here, and do not provide the addresses to anybody else.

Edit: Mine2 is working just fine BTW.

I had a warning up for a few hours, guess I should put it back up.  It looks like some miners threw a fit with the DNS change.  mine2 and mine3 point to the exact same servers right now.  A simple restart seemed to fix all issues for the miners that were affected.

EDIT:  One thing to note is that the new servers have one quirk that shouldn't affect an average user.  The new servers direct you to a backend based on your source IP.  This means if your IP changes a lot (TOR?), these new servers can cause havoc to your reject rates.  "Other" means the share received by the server did not come from that server.

If you are in a situation where your outgoing IP changes at random (not dynamic IP, more like a network where your outbound IP can bounce between 2 or more connections on any given packet), please send me a PM and I'll work on setting you up with a special connection.

Sorry I should have tried the obvious solution before panicking/complaining.


I saw the notice about the new load balancing proxy layer but it looked more FYI than cautionary.  Of course I'd find a way to screw up something that should be transparent.  It's just strange that some miners are affected and some aren't.  I'm not using TOR or anything.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly why some miners are freaking out and others are not.  It almost seems like they're keeping the old DNS entries (that go directly to a backend) and adding the round robin on top of it, so some shares go back to old IPs that they shouldn't.

I for one would like to be the first to blame the Windoze IP stack.  Maybe cgminer could add a server validation thingy that activates after a reject threshold is reached, but this is so rare it's probably not worth it.

The crazyiness is cycling through now.  Only a couple of miners still derping half rejects.

I got 2900 rejected shares in last 2 days, until I restarted the miner. At the moment I'm using cgminer 2.4.3 on win7 64bit with DNS Client service enabled. This is the 2nd time I met this situation. I need to point out that I'm using an internal DNS server (CentOS 5.7, Bind 9.3.6-16.P1) which is configured as both caching and intranet master.

The big question remains unanswered:  Did the abnormally high rejects stop after restarting your miner?

The first time I met this situation it can't just simply restart cgminer. I had restarted the miner for 3 times but it still showed lots of rejected shares. So I turned the miner off, started it after about 2 hours then it became normal.

The second time I just simply restart the miner and it's ok then.

I'm assuming you were mining on the DE server.  Last night there were some connection problems between the Germany server and the database server.  No shares were lost, it just had a period of about 14 minutes where the shares weren't being posted.  After that time, the shares for the past 14 minutes were all dumped to Chicago, which is why your speed estimates suddenly shot up significantly higher than what they really were.

Some updates to worker speed calculations, hall of fame calculations, and graphing were made.  Unfortunately the changes to worker speed calculations made the previously recorded data unusable, requiring a reset on all worker performance graphs.

In lighter news, the new setup for servers is working extremely well.  Those users who have been granted access to the private server DNS entries are encouraged to update their miners.  The goal of these recent changes is trying to create a special defense layer to allow dedicated BTC Guild miners the ability to keep running if the servers are targetted by a DDoS.  Obviously I can't know it will work until one happens, but the outlook is very good.


EDIT:  The worker speeds reported on the My Account and API are currently overstated significantly.  The numbers will correct themselves over the next hour.

It hasn't been over a day, it's been about 12 hours Smiley.  The 24 hour earnings stat will be unavailable until later tonight (~10 PM PDT).  Since the 24 hour earnings stat is based on your actual share submissions in the last 24 hours, and last night I had to reset the table which marks your shares each hour, the stat is currently missing a full 24 hour period.
