BTC Guild - Stratum Pool Beta
The Stratum based pool for BTC Guild is now open for testing.  During testing, PPS rates will be paid at 100% (0 fee).  Payouts will be run on Wednesday and Sunday of each week during testing.  A "payout" from the Stratum beta will be moving your unpaid Stratum balance to your main account balance for withdrawal/automatic payout.

You can find full details on how to connect and downloads for the stratum-mining-proxy at https://www.btcguild.com/stratum_beta.php (or click the link at the top of the page).

Please report any bugs/crashes you may find.  When updating your miner settings to connect to your local stratum proxy, don't forget to include backup servers.  This is beta, so there will probably be a few brief restarts in the first few days.

Can you please help to set it up?

I have downloaded stratum-proxy folder and executed bat file. But i cant see there any different ip than -o 198.154.98.196 -p 9332
Do i need to write in place of this http://mine2.btcguild.com:8332 something like xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -p 9332, there is no need of username too? But i cant see where i have to read that proxy ip adress Sad

Just run the batch file that was included. Then on your current mining software change the URL to the IP address of the system running the proxy. Keep everything else the same. (port/account name/passwords/etc)

So i need to point miner to my actual system ip?
If that is where the proxy is running, yes. If you have more mining rigs, point them to that IP as well.

Thanks, this is working nice  Wink  Will report if there any bug, problem with it, and how it goes.

I'm looking into the dupe "issue".  Right now I have a feeling it's cgminer pushing shares twice for some reason.  I've noticed in earlier versions, cgminer sometimes had problems when things happened too fast (like saying "pool not providing work fast enough" when connecting to a pool with a <10ms latency).

I am testing the Windows proxy and find that pointing a new system at existing workers (that has already been on the list) at the proxy systems will not connect.

However when I use a miner / password combo that is working on another system then "new" system starts crunching away.

Presently I am using 1 miner account per gpu on a given system.

I notice that submitted shares on the online webpage not updating with submitted shares.

I am giving 1 miner per gpu on system.

Also I  notice the submitted shares on the webpage not updating.

If you try to connect to the new pool before a worker was made/renamed, it will never "re-authorize" to see if you eventually made that worker.  This will be changed later on, though it's not high on the list since workers should have been made -before- trying to connect with them.

The submitted shares update on the web page if you go back to the https://www.btcguild.com/stratum_beta.php page.  They update roughly every 50 seconds at the moment (will be every 10 seconds after the next restart).

FYI - For the Stratum testing, I'm using 3 rigs:
RIG
#1 - Pi with bfgminer 2.7.5 (4 BFL)
#2 - BAMT with cgminer 2.5.0 (2 GPU, 6950/5850, 1 BFL)
#3 - Win 7 x64 with cgminer 2.7.5 (1 GPU, 5870) - Running the Stratum Proxy

Current Stats: (after 3:52 hours)
RIG
#1 - 11 Stale / 61 Dupe
#2 - 4 Stale / 35 Dupe
#3 - 0 Stale / 3 Dupe

If you're experiencing dupes, please restart your proxy and have it output to a file.  On linux, this can be done by running the proxy with:

./mining_proxy.py 2>&1 | tee log.txt


Please let it run until you see a few duplicates reported, then send me a PM with your log (pastebin.org works well).  Luckily, if it's just mining software or proxy submitting a second time, it shouldn't be a problem (you aren't losing speed as a result of it).

The times I've seen this have been when the miner thinks the pool took to long in responding to a share submission and so sends it again.

Yes, that would be the normal case.  But I'm seeing consistent pool responses in less than 50ms from the time I send them (on my connection).  Hopefully some logs will shed light on the issue.

Firewall is off.

Proxy is up (ran as Administrator), getting templates, and listening on port 8332.

CGMiner won't connect.  I've tried network IP, computer name, computer name with full domain, and even 127.0.0.1.

   {
      "url" : "http://10.10.XX.YY:8332",

Worker names are case sensitive in the pool currently.  I think thats your problem.  Copy it _exactly_ as it appears on the My Workers page.

When connecting "normally" case doesnt matter for the worker name, for the stratum it seemed to suddenly matter (or maybe running as admin is needed).

Either way, i couldnt get it working at first either but after reading this post I was able to.. woot!

If you enjoyed the advice I gave, feel free to toss over some loose change Smiley

During testing, I would appreciate having miners keep logs of their miner output and/or proxy output to help debug problems.

I've experienced dupe problems with bfgminer on my FPGAs for months, on multiple pools, but it seems more pronounced with the proxy.  Other users with GPUs are seeing the same:

[2012-09-13 19:22:20] Accepted b4af7a23.6a019d65 GPU 1
[2012-09-13 19:23:20] Rejected b4af7a23.6a019d65 GPU 1

[2012-09-13 19:12:38] Accepted ff6aafd5.497364a1 ZTX 9
[2012-09-13 19:12:42] Rejected ff6aafd5.497364a1 ZTX 9
 [2012-09-13 19:34:54] Accepted 30f0b4fb.d177554c ZTX 3
 [2012-09-13 19:34:57] Rejected 30f0b4fb.d177554c ZTX 3
 [2012-09-13 19:34:59] Accepted 55ead1ab.d8efaa87 ZTX 9
 [2012-09-13 19:35:04] Rejected 55ead1ab.d8efaa87 ZTX 9


In these cases, it's apparent cgminer already submitted the share, so it is a real duplicate.  With added logging to the proxy, I've watched the work requests, and have not caught a situation where the proxy is sending duplicate getworks.  This isn't wasting hash power as far as I've been able to identify from the logs I've been given so far.

Update pushed to the stratum pool requiring its first restart of the day.  List of changes:


1) Worker names are no longer case sensitive
2) Shares flush every 10 seconds instead of every 50 seconds (with a 2nd flush 10 seconds after those 50)
3) Fixed a potential duplicate work bug [do not believe this is the cause of earlier problems]
4) Fixed potential exploit that would allow multiple share submissions without being caught as duplicates
5) Added some special logging on my end to monitor upstream block pushes.

I'm getting this when starting the proxy on Win7 x64: (first two lines in the log)
Code:
C:\stratum-proxy\mining_proxy.exe\twisted\internet\win32eventreactor.py:64: UserWarning: Reliable disconnection notification requires pywin32 215 or later
C:\stratum-proxy\mining_proxy.exe\twisted\web\util.py:372: DeprecationWarning: Passing filenames or file objects to XMLFile is deprecated since Twisted 12.1.  P
ass a FilePath instead.
Everything seems to be working fine, I just noticed it when the proxy started with no miners pointed at it, sitting idle. I did try to resolve it by installing Python 2.7.3 and PyWin32-217, but it didn't seem to help. I don't know if it just can't find pywin32 in the environment variables or what.

I saw a connection timeout on the poold, how long were you leaving it idle?  Could be your router dropped the connection silently during the idle time.

In other news....WE FOUND A BLOCK WITH THE STRATUM POOL!

It was only idle for about 5 min while I was adjusting pool files on the BAMT rigs. Those two lines of text appear on launch.

Grats on the block!  Grin

This is bad ass, to think that now I can have another proxy running as a failover pool pointing out the wi-fi hotspot as a backup. Nice...  Cool
