With 11 blocks solved since collecting DGM stats the numbers are interesting. So far DGM would have paid out 140+ bitcoins more than PPS. This is a bit of a skewed view though since the pool has been running well with no blocks with scores greater than difficulty since I started running the stats. I'm sure it'll balance out when that happens. Pity I didn't run the stats two weeks earlier when the pool was running bad!

I'm sure it'll balance out when that happens. Pity I didn't run the stats two weeks earlier when the pool was running bad!

And that's exactly why I don't like DGM: it has variance. During periods of bad luck it can be very frustrating! I prefer the nice and steady payouts of PPS, even if it returns a little bit less over the long term. Another reason is that DGM was designed to discourage pool hoppers. That means it's not a good idea to set a DGM pool as backup because that makes you a pool hopper and you get paid less. Or if you have to turn off your rig for a little while to do maintenance, when you switch it back on you get paid less for a while than what you would get with PPS.

PPS is so much more user friendly.

Those who cause problems for others also cause problems for themselves.

Not that I'm aware of. You'd have to ask Vircurex.

There was a few seconds of downtime a short time ago as I installed some pool updates to help with performance.

That was a horrible block at 6,907,591 shares. Hopefully we don't get too many of those!

Luckily we had a few good short blocks earlier so it balances out. The pool ran really bad in the early days, and someone ripped the pool off for about 300 btc back then after finding a flaw, so it's still catch up. In total it's 800 btc behind or so. Variance is crazy. It an easily be +-600 btc at any time.

I haven't decided on whether to go DGM yet - I'm just running stats for curiosities sake for now. If I did I'd do them side by side.

Is it just me, or do personal hash rate estimates on the pool seem kind of low/fluctuating right now?

BTW, awesome pool DoubleC, thanks!

I installed a queuing system for updating share data recently to help with performance. Unfortunately this resulted in hash rate estimates to be under-reported in times when the pool comes under load and the queue builds up. I'll fix this in the next update, sorry.

The pool hash rate has picked up again, ranging 200-300+ at the moment with some miners that mine for a time period then leave. I'm wondering if it's the result of being a backup pool for people that kicks in when their main pool has issues.

Well that was fun - unexpected pool downtime for 20 minutes or so. I've temporarily disabled DGM stats collection which was causing score updates to fall behind.

This is me, and I'm sure i'm not alone. Are you considering going DGM? If so, I'll be disappointed. I love this as a backup, and if MtRed keep going down like it has, I'll be here permanently. I prefer PPS than any other method because I can't guarantee uptime on my miners, so i dont' want to be penalized for that downtime.

Like my post? 1H7bfRYh7F89mfmFgsRCdn4awDaUHQmYqY

Thanks for using the pool! I'm not planning to go DGM but I was tracking DGM stats to compare payouts. If I did enable DGM it'd be an option and I'd keep PPS but I don't see me doing DGM in the near future.  It doesn't seem to be very good for sporadic miners and I think that form of mining will become more common as people switch pools regularly for backups, etc. I also much prefer the simplicity of PPS in terms of data the pool needs to keep. Currently most of my pool development efforts are going towards improving performance and scaling.

Although if we get many more 9 million+ share blocks like the current one I might have to rethink before going bankrupt! Pool needs more good luck!

Assuming I've implemented it right, pool now supports X-Roll-NTime.
