I have no idea... Did you use the same vps for testing the testnet sanctuaries?

yes, I used the same VPS

Okay, then I don't know what could be it. But I got another 'win' so maybe it will flatten out in the long run. Looking at the other winners, the list seems to diversify a bit. Did you win any, except the '1 part'?

yes, I've got 2 more wins shortly after the 1st one.   
looking at other MN stats it's by far not a fair distribution for now. 
Rob was mentioning that some minor updates  will follow.
Hopefully they will improve round -robin algorithm here .

Have to be careful extrapolating from a small data set, there is going to be randomness / fluctuations with smaller amount of data

I think Rob mentioned the algorithm has something to do with a hash number being near a masternode's number, Id have to look into it, sounds interesting

Good Morning Community (its 08:30 am here )

I got a Problem with this happybeecloud-vps: randomly biblepay (v1.0.6.9) stopping. I dont know the reason. When i start it with

Code: [Select]
cd /home/root/biblepay/src
./biblepayd -daemon

and some seconds later i check status with:

Code: [Select]
./biblepay-cli getmininginfo
i only get an error: couldn't connect to server back.

But sometimes, everything works fine, and biblepay runs stable until it stopps random.
I was looking for a log to solve this but cant find something in /var/log or in biblepay directory.


An other thing: i want to testing such an 8-core vps from hyperexpert, but they dont sell any vps. Maybe they are in hollyday.

Yeah, you're absolutely right :) It's just that I didn't get any 'win' in the first 140 blocks (counting from block 21600), although my masternode was online or upgrading all that time, so I was getting worried that something might be wrong with my VPS.

Good morning (also for me, living in the Netherlands) :)

When you get the 'couldn't connect to server' error, that indeed most probably means that biblepay crashed. I've had that in the past with a few installations. You could try a reindex, but I don't know if that would help to be honest. Maybe someone else can answer this question more accurately for you.

About hyperexpert: It checked, and it's probably something temporary and/of holidays, but I can't find an announcement no their blog.

About the hps vs hps2: the hps2 is what the pool is using as your 'actual hps', and uses that to calculate your payout (it's correlated to the amount of shares). And the hps is what your wallet reports, but I don't think it's really accurate as of yet. I don't have enough knowledge te explain the details, but you could try and find information about this on bitcointalk (although it might be kind of hard to find between the mountains of posts).

Its the 2 GB RAM Quadcore VPS.

I had the same thing on a 1GB VPS and I just dropped it . 
You could create some kind of a cron job calling a shell script checking if daemon is running and restarting it .
I guess provider does not favor mining on it's premises.  that's it . 
they can control the processes on VPSes .

Same with you , I cancelled it as I tried many times to test,  look like the provider had a detector tool for monitor their vps ....

I looked up Rob's notes on the winning algorithm

"As far as "luck" of winning the spot, we are using an algorithm where the nodes rank is determined by how close its vin is to the blockhash its voting on, so its really luck."

"The winner is based on the delta between the masternode vin and the blockhash, so that makes the winner random, thats why they can repeat back to back."

What is the masternode VIN?

This kind of reminds me of the Price is Right LOL but going both ways up and down
I think some VINs could have really unlucky spots being sandwhiched between other VINs, does that make sense?
