Sorry that the website has been up and down for the last few hours.  Last night I added some extra defense to eliminate the effectiveness of the person that was basically running a distributed password scan (posting leaked database details from other websites and trying to use them to login to BTC Guild accounts).  These attacks were lagging the site badly due to how hard it was hitting the database with constant login attempts.

I woke up this morning seeing a new attack, this time just flooding the server over port 80 passing complete garbage through, rather than trying to log in.  Whether it is the same person or not, I am not sure at this time.

Mining should not have been affected during these attacks, everything has been limited to taking down the website so far.

Where are we on redistribution of PPS NMC? And how can I get NMC out. If I set auto payout I can get only the amount set per hour but not all that is in the accaunt. And I can't set auto payout to exact number of NMC...

As I stated in the beginning, NMC support is not even close to a priority.  For now automatic payouts will continue to be the only method to withdraw in order to avoid heavily fragmenting the wallet.  Namecoin's code is ancient and lacks a significant number of optimizations that have been added to Bitcoin over the last two years.  You will likely never see amounts under 0.01 NMC available for payout.  NMC's transaction fees are higher than BTC for sending small amounts.
I know you stated hire that NMC has no priority but that was long time ago. Are you kepping PPS NMC for yourself and you give as wrong information or are you doing this? At the start it was to be solved in days not months...

And I drooped that part since i didn't care enough for not even cents but now I'm writing again... About getting NMC out. I don't wont to take out 0.0023 or something like that but i would like to take out all not just a multiplication of auto-payout...

About 45 minutes ago a DDoS attack was launched against the pool.  My alarms woke me up shortly after.  For the last ~40 minutes I have been actively launching proxy servers and changing DNS settings while redirecting traffic to backends without exposed IPs.  I am sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused.

Long term BTC Guild users:  Please contact me (webmaster@btcguild.com) to request direct access to one of the backend servers.   There has been a private server for a long time reserved for high speed users.  I am now ready to launch 1-2 additional private servers designed for slower miners who have been with the pool for a long time.

Define "long term users".

Glad you're working on it anyway. Smiley  I'm running load balanced, hadn't noticed things going wrong with the pool, still seems to be accepting shares.

Long term would be a user that has been mining for more than a month or two in this circumstance.

I am just wondering whether we really haven't found a block for the past 3 hours, or it's it just the website not updating due to the DDOS?

Anyway, thanks for all the hardwork, Eleuthria!

We have not found a block recently.  This is not directly related to the DDoS (other than losing speed = longer block solve time on average).  They just happen to be occurring simultaneously.

indeed, good question.

It's 'funny': I started mining for the very first time when the shifts with no blocks started...
I hope the problem is fixed soon, or I maybe need to switch to another pool...

Eleuthria,
Have you thought about applying notifications on a per worker basis?

A worker was throwing spurious work at BTC Guild and I got about 10 notifications emails for that worker while it was mining another pool.
Sam

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.

Sam

It's something I'll consider.  If it's a big annoyance, one current workaround is hiding that worker.  Hidden workers will not generate idle notification emails.  Idle miner code is something I have been meaning to rewrite the script for to find a more efficient way to scan through the last share times of workers, so once I get to that (right now my focus is DDoS mitigation + new colocation), I will likely fit in the per-worker notification settings.

Yes, hidden workers will still mine.  They just won't be visible on your charts (if you unhide it, they will show up again).

That sounds like a workable solution.  If you get around to doing per worker notifications that would be great.

Thanks,

I would like to see code for a minimum threshold too. One of my ASICs dropped off and required a restart to get it active again.... The others kept churning away and I did not notice it until I saw the green light was on as I walked by...  Not sure if that is really possible though due to variance over time..

Unfortunately, anything related to a worker's actual speed will need to be a local warning system.  It's much more reliable, and more feasible to implement.  Some kind of API monitor that sends you an email when a worker drops too low would not be hard to implement, whereas offering it as a standard feature could add a lot of extra load to the pool given how many actual workers are running at any given time.

I have been seeing this error intermittently since some time just after 09:55 PDT on 7/17:

504 Gateway Time-out

cloudflare-nginx



It is affecting access to the web interface and API stats.

Could this be collateral damage from the Network Solutions DDOS?

Looks like this finally cleared up around 14:20 today (GMT-7), and had been happening for me since my earlier post.
