I have a question. Right no I'm running litecoind + pushpoold + mmcFE (as the front-end), it's a smal sized pool with peaks at around 3000kh/s so far, but we're growing rapidly.
However, some users are getting a LOT of invalid/stale shares. People have been saying their miner can stop for a while, and start subimitting only stales for a couple of minutes, then it goes back to submitting valid ones. Me myself only gets around 10% which seems fair while using getwork.
Now to the question: Is it difficult to switch from pushpoold to say... poolserverJ? I heard it's preferred since it uses GBT (getblocktemplate). This would decrease the amount of work our server does, whilst eliminating invalid shares.
- Are the shares saved if we switch back-end? (We haven't found a block yet, we're up to a total of about 200k shares so far)
- Will our users notice any difference on their end?
- Is poolserverJ compatible with mmcFE for litecoin?
Some help would be awesome!
