I'm using cgminer - is smartcoin the only option. Spent some time messing with it before to set it up. I'm not really that motivated to set it up at the moment. Anything simpler?

I'll research smartcoin again now in the meantime....

Thanks.

Bamt has been working great for me. the mgpumon utility is a wonderful way to see that everything is working at a glance. It's a snap to setup (under 10 minutes) and runs all of my machines.

We you on ars previously? - your setup is in my head from the pictures I have seen. Just wondering why you switched to this new pool - just had a quick browse to the site and it's looks like it's just starting off. It's hard to understand how it works though...

BAMT looks interesting but those munin plugins don't allow you to zoom in on the charts for a closer look. I find that annoying.

Yes, I was on ars previously. The DGM payout method is better because it is more like PPS in that the pool owner will cover some of the variance. Ars has also been having stability issues of late and that hurts profits.

I never look at the charts. The features that are most valuable are monitoring over ssh with mgpumon, email notification of issues, being able to switch the entire farm over without changing every config and the ease of setup. It took me hours to setup a windows system. BAMT is setup in minutes.

Yeah ars has been having issues but I'm using their second server since today which has been fine. I'll have to look into this DGM method...What your saying isn't clear to me though? You say it's more like PPS because of the variance, yet, you say it's better without giving the reason?  Smiley

Sorry for not being more clear.

Straight PPS == the pool owner takes all of the variance risk
PPLNS == you take all of the variance
SMPPS == when the pool is lucky, btc is held back for unlucky times but the pool does not share in the burden if it is very unlucky, miners must dig themselves out of the hole
DGM == the variance is shared between the pool owner and miners

http://yourbtc.net has also implemented poolserverj correctly so my stales are like .04% and they have a working implementation of merged mining which is extra profit.

I'm just trying out this yourbtc pool now, can you mine just bitcoin. I still don't know why I should care about namecoin.

Merged mining allows for you to do the same work but get paid more. Probably the one and only reason I care. Smiley

yourbtc.net will automatically sell the nmc and convert it to btc for you anyway, so it's like mining bitcoin alone.
