Are you sure you're running a 64bit OS? (check the system status information)
Otherwise you should ask the author of the mining software.

i've added a link to your page on ptsweb info page

i just wanted to let you all know, that beeeeer has now its own *work-in-progress* board to gather all the good links/projects/faq/tutorials ets.pp.
it can be found here:

although i dont expect everyone to switch to that board (i won't beg or force you), i hope i'll see some of the community members from here on beeeeer's board too.

no panic, i will be still here and answer your questions/PMs  :)

could you give us at least some more details about your arguments, probably the pool name & mining software you're comparing with?
beeeeer's pts pool is quite small (compared to the overall network power), thus we're more depending on  luck, than other (=bigger) pools.

thank you for your miner stats page :thumbs-up:

regarding the payout barrier: yeah, sure, i can do that, but i don't think that 0.01 PTS is a good idea (atm), i think 0.1 would be a better next step.

i don't think that ypool & beeeer use the same share target, thus it's not useful to compare them directly
and secondly this is always a question of the used mining software and its efficiency

user stats are based on blocks & payouts
thus you'll have to wait until the first block you've been participated in will be found

(beeeeeer's pts pool is quite small (% of the network), thus this can take a few hours :-X)

not only the pool is doing pretty poorly
the whole network is kinda slow atm ->

transactions / payouts for everybody with more than 0.001 PTS and a valid PTS addres are out (for about an hour now!) and are currently in network limbo, we'll have to wait until a block is found and the transactions get their confirmations
Code: [Select]

beeeeer's pool just found block #57614, hopefully including some transactions

thank you, xolokram
you're welcome :P

yep, we were a little bit unlucky today
but choosing the 22th for comparison is a kind of cherry-picking here
i would say the average is still something around ~10 blocks per day with the current difficulty and the # of miners

its a automatic payout? I mined 2 hours in my wallet still its zero ?
payout is exectued when your reach 0.2 pts

I'm wondering if the pool is okay? I know difficulty has gone up but I don't think they've mined a block for awhile? Any ideas?
Is this the last block found on Beeeeeeer?
yep, pool is alright as far as i can tell
we're just 3-4% of the network (that's about 10 blocks per day on average, luck is a bitch)
and the difficult hit us hard (as everyone else)

ps. i plan to execute a dry-run for this evening/tonight to see if everything will work fine for tomorrow's big payout, just fyi
pps. how are the rejection rates atm?

ok, share target updated.

also: if you see more stales instead of rejects than before (stales should be actually pretty rare) -> they are basically just rejects, i currently use the stale-value for statistical purpose to get a better understanding of the problem to finally fix it hopefully soon

the pool had to struggle with some higher workload during the last days. i'll change the share difficulty to reduce the workload, thus the overall shares/minute will decrease (in total for everyone). payouts & blocks are not affected by this.

i hope this will also reduce the rejection problem.

i'll report back once the difficulty is changed. and once it has been changed: feel free to report your observation.

Although reject rate is very high, you wouldn't obtain better results on ypool. Everybody gets the same share of a block so you are not loosing 10% as in effect everybody is affected so everyone's share size remains the same with or without loss.
this ^

regarding your disconnect problem: what hardware are you using?

Or could you just revert your fix?
you're aware of the fact, that this would mean it'll be exploitable?!
btw. that's why i want to see the #share/block needed, it should decrease with the new (actually old, but now re-activated) security-fix, although i admit that the higher rejection rate looks crappy on the miner's side.

I am using ptsminer v0.7. Is it have the issue you mentioned above? If yes, how to fix it
by fixing the code or thinking of a better solution for blocktemplate-creation.

and not all rejections are caused by the security-fix, some might by caused by the increased workload of the server & decreased block time that's currently happening due to the rising popularity of protoshares.

first, i hope i won't miss a statement/message/question: i'm sorry if i'll do, post again pls :)

@rejection rate:
i've activated a few security measurements on the pool, this includes disconnecting spamming miners (very rare!) and rejecting shares that are identical clones of already submitted shares. i know that the original miner is having an issue with this on machines with a lot of computing power due to the blocktemplate-creating method. i don't know if this has been changed/updated/fixed/checked on the third-party miners?!?!

i hope (at least) one of the developer is reading this.

I just checked "...kzse4B", from what i'm able to tell it doesn't look like a botnet. But you could never know, as there are enough ways to obfuscate the connections. Anyway, thanks for finding, i'll keep an eye on that.

it also could be already existing server farm that is currently (temporary?) switching to PTS due to the 28th February event.

sorry :) but i think you're faster than me with this
feature request --> a general pool stats page with daily stats like: #shares / block

sorry for the late and *spoiler* unstatisfying reply:
i'm currently busy fixing the primecoin pool backend

i'll come back here later and answer the questions once i'm done there. sorry.

- xolokram

ps. i'm available on the irc channel for easy questions, but i'm busy, so don't expect quick answers :)

can you specify some details, like: % of rejects before and now, what miner/os are you using?

is somebody else seeing effects like this?

the (security) changes i've made shouldn't result in more rejects. but if you encounter reconnects, that could be the effect of the changes yesterday.

pool should be up again, yes *pheww*

i could schedule a "big" payout for all addresses that have PTS left for the 27th of February
everybody should check they addresses for typos before that
i don't want to have dozens of messages of because someone used a invalid address on the miner on 27/28th of February :)

- xolokram

ps. wallet/coins are safe
pps. i reset the network node, it might take a few minutes to re-download the blockchain, stay tuned
