Hi folks,

up to now, I did some pooled mining on mining.bitcoin.cz as I was lacking some "serious" hardware. Now I set up a bitcoind server on my local net with 4 clients. Now I was wondering how to correctly monitor the creation of bitcoins, just to keep an eye on the overall progress of creating a block. When I query the server with getinfo it returns:
Code:
{
    "version" : 32100,
    "balance" : 0.00000000,
    "blocks" : 129788,
    "connections" : 6,
    "proxy" : "",
    "generate" : false,
    "genproclimit" : -1,
    "difficulty" : 567358.22457067,
    "hashespersec" : 0,
    "testnet" : false,
    "keypoololdest" : 1306930496,
    "paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
    "errors" : ""
}

That doesn't tell me that much, does it? On the web-based pooled mining site you have this clear overview of how much your workers have calculated so far. It would even be sufficient to see the cumulated local miner pool performance in bitcoins/time. Is there any way to get that out of a running server? I hope you know what I mean..?

Thanks in advance,
Rob

I would like to bring this subject back up.  I am currently mining solo and would like to get the info from bitcoind also.  Do I have to set up a local pool in order to do this?  

if so, is there any documentation about setting up a pool?

or can i just query the bitcoind to tell me how many workers are requesting work?

jim


edit:  does anyone know where to find info on the bitcoind and what I can 'ask' it?

maybe use bitcoin instead of its daemon, then you will see solved blocks

1. If you use the bitcoin GUI client instead of the daemon, you'll see the block count increase but you should also see the transactions appear in your wallet.  That's probably your best bet for monitoring solo mining, unless you REALLY want to see the nitty-gritty details.  But, the combination of what your miner is telling you, along with seeing the transactions & blocks in bitcoin, is probably enough.

2. The list of available RPC commands are here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Original_Bitcoin_client/API_calls_list

3. There's no built-in method to see the number of getworks/sec.  That's one of the things I'm working on building into my custom version of bitcoind and will release that code once it's finished and cleaned up.

Thank you.

edit:  jftr, i lasted about 12 hours....  went back to the pool.  I have about 15 G, but that still could be more then a week easy.
