Help with "Could not get mining infos" errors in creepMiner 1.5.2



  • I am receiving the following error repeatedly in the logs for creepMiner. I am running the latest version (1.5.2) on Windows x64.

    I'm not sure if this is an issue or not, as I am mining on m.burst4all.com and have been getting deadlines and earning burst, but I want to be sure everything is configured correctly.

    I have not been paid yet today, so I'm not sure if that is related to this. I am still fairly new to all of this. Any help/advice is very appreciated!!

  • @Creepsky Do you have any thoughts/comment on this?





  • @groupthug sometimes (for example at the beginning of a new block) the pool server is under heavy load and can't process your mining info request.
    If you get deadlines, everything is ok and you don't need to worry about it 🙂
    But if you get a lot of "Could not get mining infos 5/5 times..." messages, something is not working properly.



  • @Creepsky45 Unfortunately my log files are filled with these messages right now. Any suggestions? Should I turn up the level of debug in the miner.conf file?



  • I got a similar

  • @bugduino if youre pool mining your pool could be down.

    @groupthug sorry for not answering, lost this thread out of my eyes. Do you still have this problem? This could also be a problem of the pool (ddos).



  • yeah probably i'm mining at http://pool.burstcoin.eu and it seems down.


  • admin

    @bugduino was down - back up now.



  • @Creepsky45 Hi, I am getting these (below), every few seconds, always 1/5 never even 2/5. 1.6.0 downloaded off github as binary. Pool seems alive and fine otherwise.

    Something is wrong with mining.conf?

            "miningInfo" : "http://pool.burstmining.club:8124",
            "submission" : "http://pool.burstmining.club:8124",
    

    Thaaanks! 🙂

  • @laydeals That is a good question, thats something i noticed some time ago while testing a bugfix on this pool.
    Somehow the server decides not to respond on every get mining info request - it just closes the connection.

    My theory is that there is an anti-flood-algorithm, that blocks requests that have not a particular amount of time between them.

    I will look at it and report back.



  • I changed pool from "ninja" to "club" 25 min ago - with there min DL I only had two confirmed DLs in two days on a different miner (earned 4!!!), so never really seen any confirmed DLs in creepminer. Two minutes ago - first confirmed DL in Creep! It works despite these messages! Thanks for the comment! @Creepsky45
