Merged Mining[edit]

Eloipool supports merged mining using the setworkaux/gotwork RPC interface. A simple port of namecoin's merged-mine-proxy to this interface is available here: https://gitorious.org/~Luke-Jr/bitcoin/luke-jr-bitcoin/blobs/namecoin_mmm/contrib/merged-mine-proxy

Please be advised that:

  • Eloipool does not provide any interface for longpolling aux chains.
  • Empty and longpoll merkle roots are generated only as-needed, and will NOT be regenerated when CoinbaseAux changes. This means shares found by getwork miners after a longpoll will almost always be stale on your aux chain(s). This problem does not affect GBT or stratum miners.
