Pool operators and big solo miners

FOR POOL OPERATORS AND BIG SOLO MINERS:

To sync faster with NW and reduce orphan blocks see following steps.
1] Keep Port 18090 open.
2] Use latest derod either from sources or from binary releases

Public pool operators pls post your contact details for for support, issues and updates.

Make sure you have dedicated/decent CPU( with AES instruction set)hardware for pool. CryptoNote algo requires lot of CPU and most of the VPS fails when other VPS on same host takes backup or are under heavy load. Also many VPS providers don’t expose full instruction set.
In linux use cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep -i aes to check for aes instructions.

Recent Intel Xeon 4-8 core CPU, 4 GB Ram, 120 GB SSD disk will make a decent stable pool.

Also check there is no firewall on port 18090
