Very cool!

Any plans to release the p2pool+ckpool combined solution?
It's all there as the free software that exists already (I've been working on ckproxy changes all week aimed at p2pool). I'm providing the server and setting it up for them and running it as a customised solution in an optimised fashion for their particular hardware combination and geographical location.

How does ckpool and p2pool work together?  Ckpool is essentially a centralized service offering solo mining, correct?  How does that interact with the p2pool network?  Thanks.

You're thinking of solo.ckpool.org . ckpool is the software, it is not a pool, but there are numerous ckpool based pools.  It can also run as ckproxy which when it sits in front of p2pool it can take the load off the p2pool software allowing far more high speed clients to connect to the one p2pool node without adversely affecting its latency or efficiency. Yes that does make it yet another layer you need running which makes it even more awkward and I wasn't recommending that for anyone else, but it happens to be quite a good solution for very large miners as it ends up acting like a mini private pool for them while still being part of the distributed p2pool and avoid joining a regular pool. As the author of the ckpool software, I'm offering various mining solutions. You'll note that I'm personally not running a regular pool of my own, only the solo pool which is filling a different niche.

If you read the docs, -P MUST have a full ckpool instance upstream or it will not work, so you can only use -p with another pool, like p2pool.

Anyone know if the XBTech Pacific 1250's work OK with p2pool?

Thanks.

Anyone?

Also the Technobit HEX4M's?

Looks like the S4's are having problems mining on a centralised pool - let alone p2pool. I've asked on the S4 thread if someone would try them with p2pool, but I think they're too busy drowning in fail......I can't believe Bitmain didn't test the firmware properly before shipping them  Roll Eyes

S3 is basically a faster S1, and S1s worked fine (well, okay) with p2pool.
Stands to reason a S4 is basically a faster S2.  And we know how well S2s work with p2pool.

Well, according to Bitmain - they work with p2pool:

Replied questions:

1. S4 is compatible with p2pool?
Yes


But the proof is in the pudding. Can anyone confirm this? Anyone tried?

S2s "work" as well.  Just not very well.

Well, if you believe the BitmainWarranty account, and can stomach the screenshot where they "tested" for only a minute, then the S4 works with p2pool: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=796839.msg9075999#msg9075999.

By the way, Bitmain released a new firmware for the S4 in which they updated cgminer to 4.6.1: https://www.bitmaintech.com/support.htm?pid=00720140930114518599JXGHWWD80660.

EDIT: I do not own an S4, so I can't confirm Bitmain's statements.

Truten, I do not believe this thread is the right place to discuss altcoin p2pools as it is focused on Bitcoin.

Having said that I believe Rav removed dogecoin from his repository since he believes running a dedicated dogecoin pool is no longer a good idea due to doge now supporting auxPOW.

Added to that it appears that a number of nodes never updated their dogecoind so the dogecoin p2pool is finding blocks in both chains.

For the most part I would say that the dogecoin p2pool is dead.

It does, there's just problem with change to difficulties recently.  Move them back and you should be fine.

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

It's getting hard to find hardware that will work properly with p2pool nowadays, even 2nd hand gear, especially now that Bitmain are holding back on their next S3 batch release in an effort to sell more of their S4 train wrecks - I just hope they get the firmware fixed soon, but it ain't looking promising.

In a perfect world, someone will come along with a complete re-write of p2pool soon......... Tongue

Yeah, the S4 really is a train wreck.  PSUs burning out, boards with "x" all over, firmware that doesn't work, firmware updates that break and require you to remove the SD card.

As for hardware, Spondoolies gear still plays well with p2pool - every one of their SPx miners.  The S3s do just fine.  That's really about it at this point.

I've set up a private pool solution for a reasonably large miner using a combination of p2pool and ckpool technology. You should all see a decent increase in the overall pool size over the next 24-48 hours.
This hasher is now online. His hashrate should be obvious, right at the top of the list. Barring changes in plans, and provided the hardware continues to hash well, it should be remaining on this pool.

Now the interesting thing with this is, because I have connected the hardware via ckproxy instead of as 100 connections directly to the p2pool client, p2pool sees it as one client, which means that this miner's share target is more than 10 times larger than that for other miners. By doing this, even though I've dumped a large hashrate onto the pool, it won't substantially increase the target share rate for the smaller miners. This means smaller miners can benefit from the increased p2pool hashrate decreasing their variance without their share target increasing that much which normally increases their variance the same amount. If more larger miners did something similar on p2pool, it might keep the smaller miners. The large miner benefits from his p2pool client scaling where it otherwise couldn't and the smaller miners get to stay and benefit from his presence. While it's not a "fix" for the overall design, it might give p2pool some breathing space, allowing ever larger miners to join. That said, "small" these days is not really that small... Perhaps p2pool will actually end up being nothing but big miners (though that is what most of the network is now), provided their hardware is compatible :p
