Chris working on issue

Post by Steve Sokolowski » Tue Oct 03, 2017 5:02 pm

Chris is working on an issue that appeared suddenly last night. For an unknown reason, the share inserters get behind almost immediately after startup. The issue started this morning despite making no changes.

So far, we have been unable to determine the cause of the problem. Chris will keep everyone updated with his progress on troubleshooting once more information becomes available.

It seems as if the system is now catching up, but we don't know what's different now. A working theory is that these issues are somehow related to Javapipe's outages today. Javapipe's entire connection is going offline, while our servers are still fully operational.

Things seem to be working OK at the moment, and Chris is submitting a ticket to Javapipe to follow up on this theory.

My first post just joined.

I am assuming this topic has to do with the Pool being down?

Homepage eventually comes up but when I click to submit login for the pop up, it does nothing. Cant log in to Pool.

Earlier today before it went down totally I noticed it was still hashing but it showed I had Zero worker miners.

Are miners down or is it just the Pool Interface???

Have you identified the issue and have an approximate ETA when things are back online?

Hope to get a reply. Thank you

Hi,
As I can see miners are mining on PH, as they've been all day, but the income is about a 1/3 of the previous day :(.

oh no...

I noticed my hashing power on some of my workers are way under what my hashrate should be. I am not sure if that is on PH end or my end..

Some of the workers are way under performing like a difference of 70 MH/s to 150 MH/s under what they should be for most of the workers.

It looks like the cause of this problem was a few coin daemons that were using 100% CPU and disk on some servers. Chris is going to add a task to monitor coins over time, because we never considered this issue. He'll schedule coins that are inefficient for discontinuation.

The system will catch up its several hour backlog over time, and Chris will issue share corrections later in the evening for any shares that aren't inserted.

A software bug is an error, flaw, failure or fault in a computer program or system that causes it to produce an incorrect or unexpected result, or to behave in unintended ways. ... A program that contains a large number of bugs, and/or bugs that seriously interfere with its functionality, is said to be buggy (defective). I think there program is very buggy and needs an overhaul.
