    I started using xmrig-proxy, and more recently switched from the xmrig docker image to using xmr-stak.

    It seemed to work fine, other than xmrig-proxy reporting some duplicate jobs from dwarfpool and occasional batches of rejected shares. (Less than 1%, so annoying, but not a huge deal.)

    I ignored it for a week, and today I noticed my overall hash rate on dwarfpool was around 1/2 of what it should have been.

    m1 should be the fastest worker on that list, but it turns out xmrig-proxy was silently rejecting all it's shares for some time, with "Invalid job id". Only 8% of shares had been accepted. m4 had the same issue, and I had just restarted it in the screenshot above, hence the much lower 24h hashrate. (13% success rate)

    Now it's happening again, starting at 2018-04-27 11:43:04. I'm not sure if it's a bug in xmrig-proxy or xmr-stak, or just some weird incompatibility. Is anyone else seeing anything similar? (Either with xmrig-proxy + xmr-stak, or some subset thereof.)

    This is with the latest versions: xmrix-proxy 2.5.2 and xmr-stak 2.4.2.

    Most likely the proxy is not forwarding new jobs to workers occasionally. Maybe a race condition?

    May have been the pool. Had some issues with Dwarfpool. Lots of rejects for some hours. Seems to have been fixed.
