HELP WITH LOWERING REJECTION RATE?!?

Postby mwinters » Sun Feb 11, 2018 5:29 pm

Hello, I seem to have a high rejection rate with prohashing compared to other pools like nicehash or litecoinpool. I do enjoy mining here and was wondering if there is anything I can do to help reduce that number? It seems to stick around 10-20%...Im running a couple Antminer L3+

Could you try pinging the server to see if the ping time is higher than those of the other pools?

How do I do that? Is that through the Antminer interface?

No. You can open up a command window and type "ping [x]", where [x] is the name of the site you want to ping.

Try it for both sites and report on the difference.

Both sites had 0 packet loss.

nicehash was a little quicker:

prohashing: Minimum: 44ms Maximum: 112ms Average: 62ms
nicehash: Minimum: 31ms Maximum: 95ms Average: 47ms

Actually, we found a bug yesterday that had been introduced with the latest release. The issue has since been resolved.

Could you check to see if the situation has improved?

I will point one of my miners and report back in 24-48 hours. Thanks!

I ran 24 hours and still seem to see a high rejection rate. It's right below 10% so it does seem a little better...anything else I can do?

Without access to your miners, it's difficult to determine exactly what's going on here. The most likely cause is latency, but since you said that your latency is the same at the other sites as here, that likely isn't the reason.

Perhaps someone else has had this problem before and could assist. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, what did you do to resolve it?

for judging latency you probably should use the packetsize option to the ping command to set a size close to what miners/pools use
