I am mining on a single Antminer S9 with Slush Pool. The pool automatically assigns difficulty that corresponds to the hash rate of your miner. My scoring hash rate and hash rate are consistent with what the manufacturer of my mine advertises: 13. According too the table my difficulty should be 13 times 1024 which is 13312. This is way higher than the pool determined 128.
What should I set the minimum difficulty be? I tried to understand what minimum difficulty is but I was unable too find a clear and simple explanation what this number represents. The pool which you connect to distributes work for miners to solve. The more difficult each “package” of work sent to you, the longer you will take to find a solution and reply back to the pool with this solution, named share. As explained in this Post you will on average be rewarded the same solving problems of 10k difficulty at 10 seconds per share, as solving problems of 1k difficulty at 1 second per share.
Discarded – Discarded Work that has not been worked on. According to a developer of cgminer, meaningless. Stale – Number Shares that were sent after a block was already solved. You can now check to see which difficulty the pool has automatically assigned to you in the Miner Status Page. So some work you have done in solving problems has gone to waste as these solutions have been rejected. If the difficulty is very high, you may be working on solving a problem which no longer needs solving and so you will get no credit for the work. As far as I understand, these submited shares would be marked as Stale or Perhaps Rejected.
Currently a new bitcoin block is found every 10 minutes or so, sometimes under a minute sometimes more than 15 minutes. 0 then when blocks get found under 1 minute, you have lost that minute because the pool will generate new work with the latest new block to mine and the work you were working on that you couldn’t complete in time would be useless. So, ultimately you don’t want to overload the pool but you want to make sure that you risk as few shares as possible. From my experience hashing at 13. 3K will produce approximately 1 share every 4. 179712″ , Risk of approx 0.
