Hello Everyone,

I have been renting out my hashing power in increments to people. That means I enter their pool information for a set amount of time then have to set a reminder to manually switch back. Is there any software that will work with the Antminer S1 that will allow me to set schedules? Or set up a quick if/than statement?

For example, for 12 hours mine using this pool information. After 12 hours, switch back to this pool information?

Antminer uses cgminer which includes the --rotate option to switch pools at regular intervals. Just set that pool strategy, specifying how long between each pool.

Developer/maintainer for cgminer and ckpool/ckproxy.
ZERO FEE Pooled mining at ckpool.org, 1% Fee Solo mining at solo.ckpool.org

Problem with this though is it will switch back to the other pool eventually. I dont want to rotate, I just want it to revert at a certain time frame.

Use cron to rotate your own config in place and restart the miner.

One thing in the same category I am more intered in is switching pool based on luck.

Say I have worked at pool 1 for 1 hour until its luck has decreased to 100%. Now I feel that I will get less profit from the rest of my shares. If I work 1 more hour, I will get half the pay I would have received if I had dedicated my miner to another pool with 100% luck.

Actually, after 2 hours, switching will give me:
1 hour that gets dilluted to 50% value (2 hour block)
1 hour at 100% luck.

So by switching, I would get 1.50 times the value compared to mining the same block to finish.

I am seeing more and more very long blocks, and bad pool luck. So would like to try something like that.
