Should I be receiving shares for every block mined by the pool?

edited January 2014 in General

Should I be receiving shares for every block of LTC mined by this pool.  There are quite a few blocks that are skipped on my confirmed rewards stats page.  I do shut off my miner periodically so how would I correlate my down time to missing blocks on the stats page.  Is the date/time stamp on the payouts/comfirmed rewards page a representation of the actual time the block was mined or the time the payout was dispersed?


  • all transactions are listed on the payments page. if you keep turning off you miners then you wont give pplns a change to ramp up.

    you will only receive a reward when you have shares in a solved block so if you are mining with a cpu and shutting it off that would more then explain what you are seeing.
  • So I did a little tuning on my card last night and got an extra 15 Kh with out creating any hardware errors and my WU went up on CGminer as well.  I started it off at 3am and at %1.76 invalids/not paid or 4376.  I'm ready for the next step in monitoring my income to make sure I'm being credited properly as I will be expanding my mining capabilities this month.

    1. Do the invalids, in the dashboard, correlate to rejects in CGminer?
    2. if they do how do I use CGminer to compare rejected shares against invalids in a certain block?
    3. How do i know if I'm not being properly credited for shares in a particular block?
    4. How long does it take for this pools share distribution approach to "RAMP" UP to %100?

  • there was actually a issue with vardiff giving miners to high hashrate. it has since been resolved and you will now see better results. you can read more about it on pool news.

  • Thanks for the input.  I appreciate the speedy reply!  Does anyone have answers to my questions.  I've had these questions for awhile and this seemed a good time to ask them since this snafu probably has many of the same questions on peoples minds

    Looking at my stats on the dashboard my invalids and valids have been static since I restarted my miner.  no change whatsoever.  How do I know my FTC earnings are being reported correctly?  Inconsistent blocks are being shown in payments but the dashboard isn't updating!

  • BUMP...anyone have any answers to my 4 questions above?
