What's your invalid rate?

edited May 2014 in Vertcoin

Just switched my vertcoin miners to this pool, and after two hours I'm at 7.2% rejects :( 

While on the old pool, it was 0.1%

How many rejects do you have?

    alot of users have come to me saying rejects are very high lately. Im looking into this.

  • It woudl help if you can provide teh reason for the rejected share also

  • OK can you please reboot yrou miner and see if it makes any difference. We have had to reboot stratum to make these changes so hashrates might take a few min to catch back up.

    Please let me know

  • Just restarted the miner. No rejects in 5 minutes, will report again in an hour or two.

  • A few hours ago I noticed a lot of invalid shares (Invalid Lifetime reached 9%). I restarted everything and for a while it was OK (miner and site stats, BTW why Invalid Lifetime number, not only the percentage, was dropping? Invalid become valid?). Now again rejected shares about 3% in vertminer, invalid shares in stats 11% (VRT - lifetime, similar for MON and PLX).

  • Nothing helps. 5% rejected in vertminer. Invalid lifetime 12.5%!!!! And all was good until today morning.

    I'm also getting a higher invalid rate reported in the dashboard than in the miner.  Cudaminer shows 3-5% rejected and the dashboard shows over 14% now and rising.  Earlier this week(until today) the dashboard invalid rate stayed around 3-5%.


    I only started mining this past Saturday so my dashboard rate is probably more inflated than others will show. 

    Edit: I should mention this is for VTC.  I also have and old GPU mining LTC for shits and giggles and the invalid rate is about 5% which is only slightly higher than the 2% it was reporting earlier this week.
  • My dasboard invalid rate was under 2% until today. Now 12.67%!!!! Now I'm testing other coins / pools to make sure it's not my rig.

  • ok ill keep looking. I heard from a few peopel thats its only happening on VTC when we find new blocks?

    Yeah, something definitely seems up when it updates. It might be purely cosmetic since my payouts are roughly the same as they have been.  My hash is quite low since I'm only mining on my gaming GPU(for now =D) but my round payout has dropped from about "0.015" to "0.012". 


    Before this last block find my stats showed:
    Valid Lifetime: 6036
    Invalid Lifetime: 1025 (16.98%)

    After the block was found and these stats updated it showed:
    Valid Lifetime: 5984
    Invalid Lifetime: 1113 (18.6%)

    I don't think it's only cosmetic. I haven't followed payouts that closely but I think they not as good as yesterday. I run my rig on vertco.in  - no problems there (vertminer showed rejects under 0.005% !!!). I've returned here and 3% on the start but I will see how it goes.

  • Round payouts will drop as more miners join the pool that is competly normal as rewards have to be split between more users.

  • What I meant is profits = payouts / time unit (e.g. per day) which shouldn't depend on the number of miners (except for "smoothing" effect). But as I said I didn't took notes of what happened before, just eyeballing.

    Rejected in vertminer > 2% - it's still not good. Used to be about 0.5%. Invalid shares number in stats is a little lower, though still looks really ugly. At least WU improved so I hope other numbers will follow.

  • oh i thoguh you were referign to round estimate. in any case anythign over 2% is very bad i agree and we are looking into it

  • Didn't get to update my numbers yesterday, so doing it now. vertminer reports 2.8% rejects, pool reports 3.8% invalids.

    Thanks serraz for your work!
    Small update: In my vertminer rejected shares are slowly creeping UP, now almost 3%. Invalid in stats still horrible, 12.75% (better than 15% I saw at one moment). Other numbers are good and really stable: high WU, no HW, very occasional SS (they happen on this rather slow rig; I'm waiting for one part for my main rig).

  • The stats on teh site say slifetime which mean forever. it will take a while for those numbers to drop you need to go off your miner not the website as its valid and invalid since the account was created. Seeing the number goes down is a very good sign that things are better but we still have some work to do judging from the results

  • Just a note, previous pool set difficutly to 128/256 for my rig, GMC sets 32/64. Maybe this plays a role? Higher diff -> less frequent share submits -> less traffic -> faster new block propagation -> less rejects. 

  • strange what is your hashrate? our vardiff is capped at 128 now because users with less hashrate were nto submittign enough shares in blocks therefore gettign paid less (merged mining coins were only affected)

  • About 1.2 MH/s

  • I suspected something like that but first time saw it a moment ago. The rejections come in bunches like this (but single ones happen of course too):
