M0mchil, the help message for the failback parameter still refers to "2" instead of the new default "10":

Code:
group.add_option('-b', '--failback',  dest='failback',   default=10,          help='attempt to fail back to the primary pool every N getworks, [b]default 2[/b]', type='int')

So what is the difference between 6000 botnet machines doing CPU mining and 6000 normal users doing CPU mining? Aren't they just as bad for the network/pool  because of their effect on the server? Enforcing some kind of efficiency standard would help everyone else in the pool who is pulling their weight.

What's the proper "git" way to keep the software up-to-date? If I already have it installed and just want to freshen it up?

The account balance of the botnet has been donated to Bitcoin Faucet.

While I enjoy the "revenge" and "justice" of denying them their money, I think that legally, it was not the proper thing to do. Courts decide how to award damages, not site owners.

Run Chris Howie's bitcoin mining proxy on your rig. It provides multi level instant failover to other pools in case your favorite pool has any kind of problems. Your miners will just keep mining and never even know there was a problem. I love this program.

The newest poclbm makes this unnecessary - the software supports multiple servers with failover. Of course if you're running another miner...

I recently came back to Deepbit after using BTCGuild. Everything is wonderful, but one thing I miss is the hash rate for each worker. I think it was computed over a 15 minute period. It helps to see this on the account page so I can see if all of the workers are doing their job and haven't failed. I also can't believe how fast the website is compared to BTCGuild. Thanks Tycho.

The latest version doesn't accept the HOST command - it requires a SERVER entry instead.


It also has an annoying blank-line scrolling behavior that only goes away if you make xterm full screen.

Something doesn't add up - if all these people are returning their systems to Newegg, why isn't the hash rate dropping:

Unless they never built their miner or go it online.

Are you overclocking the cards? If so, you pushed it too far.

If you aren't overclocking, then one or more of your cards are bad.

Hey eleuthria, you know what would really make the site better? If you have a "total reward" that added up the confirmed and unconfirmed. Put it on top of confirmed or below unconfirmed and the page that shows miners and work would be alot more awesome.  Wink

It would be even better if you donated 2.5%, then you wouldn't need to worry about adding the confirmed and unconfirmed amounts together.
431  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: BTC Guild - 0% Fees, Long polling, SSL, JSON API, and more [~500 gH/sec] on: June 03, 2011, 07:30:07 PM
I think eleuthria has gotten things under control again. My hash rate (on the website) has gone back up and the total GHash rate of btcguild is skyrocketing.
432  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: BTC Guild - 0% Fees, Long polling, SSL, JSON API, and more [~500 gH/sec] on: June 03, 2011, 06:53:50 PM
What is the problem to do this banning automatically? either using iptables or directly in the pool server daemon?

Doing it automatically will take more time to develop the code. I'd rather he fix the problem quickly, then go back and look for an elegant way to do it.
433  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Linux vs Windows for Dedicated Mining on: June 03, 2011, 05:37:12 PM
I run one of my cards on Windows, and two more of the same kind on Linux. Same software (poclbm), same settings, same exact amount of overclocking.  Here is the result:

Shares:
24279 (Windows)
28622 (Linux)
28575 (Linux)

Notice any difference?

deepbit creates a prototype "mobile" summary page - https://deepbit.net/m

could we get something similar?
435  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: BTC Guild - 0% Fees, Long polling, SSL, JSON API, and more [~500 gH/sec] on: June 02, 2011, 04:13:32 PM
I noticed the times on the blocks screen https://www.btcguild.com/blocks.php are in UTC, but the times on the payout history screen https://www.btcguild.com/my_payouts.php are local (US/Pacific)?
436  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: BTC Guild - 0% Fees, Long polling, SSL, JSON API, and more [~500 gH/sec] on: June 02, 2011, 01:45:17 PM
I'm going to be having a short (< 1 minute) restart on the server this weekend to update pushpool.  The update will reduce overall load on the MySQL database, and it will include a fix to the reset column so it won't be resetting the counts.

Do we need to restart the miners (poclbm) after the outage or will they just recover on their own?

How is the payout for each donating user for invalid blocks calculated?

eleuthria, what is the pool's percentage of invalid blocks (since inception)?  (I'm considering donating).

440  Bitcoin / Mining / Linux bitcoin text tricks on: May 26, 2011, 01:31:54 PM
These snippets are made to be used in a linux terminal instead of using a browser. I've actually had my system lock up when I started the browser because I was so close to the "edge" when overclocking. They use the linux "watch" command which runs a command periodically over and over. Please don't lower the number of seconds between updates too low when accessing data from someone else's website - you risk having your IP address blocked by the owner.

Show mining progress on Deepbit.net
This could be adapted for other pools that provide JSON statistics. The command requires that you replace the xxxxxxxxx stuff with your JSON API token available on this page: https://deepbit.net/settings
Code:
curl -s 'http://deepbit.net/api/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' |
sed -e 's/[{}]/''/g' | awk -v k="text" '{n=split($0,a,","); for (i=1;
i<=n; i++) print a[i]}' | grep -e 'confirmed_reward' -e 'hashrate'
The sed and awk stuff is from this page: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1955505/parsing-json-with-sed-and-awk
To show the results continuously, put the command above into a file in /tmp/miningstats, make miningstats executable with "chmod 755 /tmp/miningstats" and use the following command to update it every 60 seconds:
Code:
sudo -u nobody watch -n 60 /tmp/miningstats
I run the code under the userid nobody so that the website owner can't do anything to your system.

Show Current Prices from MtGox
Put the following command in /tmp/mtgoxquote:
Code:
curl -s 'https://mtgox.com/code/data/ticker.php' | sed -e 's/[{}]/''/g' | awk -v k="text" '{n=split($0,a,","); for (i=1; i<=n; i++) print a[i]}'
Make the file executable with "chmod 755 /tmp/mtgoxquote"
Show it every 5 minutes in a terminal:
Code:
sudo -u nobody watch -n 300 /tmp/mtgoxquote

Show Wallet Status
This will show your balance, the number of connections, etc.
Code:
watch -n 30 bitcoind getinfo

If you have any additional tips, post them here.
