I have been messing with a p2pool which I like (no fee) but has latency about every week causing the miner to stop mining altogether. I would like to employ some kind of failover strategy so that the miner will mine somewhere else if unable to connect to this free p2pool, but I would like to be mining on the primary pool as often as possible.
I have tried looking at the multipool settings, but they weren't very informative in terms of what happens when. If I set
failover does that mean that it will only connect to the second if it can't connect to the first? If not, is there any way to set up cgminer this way?
