Hiveon Pool is the cause of the increase in stale shares? 0.5% to 2%

Since January 13, my stale shares increased from 0.5% to 2% without any obvious explanation. In my flight sheet I tried to use my closest pool (45ms) and I also tried the AUTO option that locates me in the same pool. Nothing changed.

my nearest pool is

In the first image you can see the use of the “pool-ping” tool that is in HiveOS.

Here you can see that the latency of the stratum is not stable.

I also attach the image of the PING I made to at the same time to show the stability of my connection

does anyone have any suggestions other than switching to flexpool or ethermine?

The single address upgrade was on 1/6/2022.

The method of targeting a single server is a bit different now and not recommended with the exception of a narrow cases. To point at a single address and accept the responsibility of failover, there is a “direct” added to the addresses as this baseline:

Hiveon Pool still pays out 50% value up to <5% stale shares. Factor such into your analysis.

Full disclosure, I mine on various pools to suit certain payout criteria and stales still vary for me after I aggressively tuned my systems to the service provider demarcation. Whether the % range matters to you will require a calculation of all the variables.

Good luck in the hunt!

Same here. This morning I have split the mining over three pools (hive, 2miners and ethermine). I have meantime about 1.5% stales with hive and zero stales with 2miners/ethermine.

Considering hive pays 50% of the stales, i am starting to have funny ideas how they make their money.

I will continue the testing for another two-three days.
