my payouts were a solid .03 to .086 per block,  now dropped to .006?  exactly same hashrate. Colour me confused....
Have you been finding less shares?

Your payout may change based on the amount of shares you find, and the variation of the pools hashrate.  If the pool hashrate goes down, the pools [share] difficulty goes down and you will earn a little more due to finding more shares.  If the pools hashrate increases, you will earn less.  The other side of this is as the pools hashrate increases, more blocks should be found; and as the pools hashrate decreases less blocks would be found. 

So your payout may change based on the pools hashrate, if your hashrate stays the same.
Typically when your expected payout drops way down, it's because you're either finding fewer than expected shares (variance) or the shares you are finding are orphaned or DOA.  Also, take a look at the node on which you're mining.  If the node's hash rate will lead it to finding a lot of shares, the node will adjust the share difficulty up to compensate.  You can counteract this by using the "/" parameter in your miner user name:
Code:
BTC_ADDRESS/1
This will tell the node that no matter what it determines the share difficulty to be, you want it to accept shares of minimum network difficulty from you.

Not that I know of...

that's why you MUST run your node on a local machine to view the prodution ... not use a remote P2Pool node that it count only the shares produces ...




French ... but not so much   ---===---   P2P ... it's people at the end   ---===---   P2Pool (10,9 GH/s).

Thank you for the information everyone.  At the moment I am using a +4096 difficulty on the end of my BTC address.  Is this a good idea or should I perhaps try the /1 as suggested?  Would there be a huge difference?

Those are two different and separate parameters, with different functions.  The "+" is the pseudo-share difficulty.  It's primary function is to provide you with feedback.  If you look at your miner logs, you'll only see accepts for shares greater than the value you use here.  The lower the number, the more shares you submit, the smoother the graphs become.

The "/" parameter is actual share difficulty, and its functionality is as I described in my previous post.

Interesting feature, P2Pool requires -rpcpassword to be explicitly set, so it will have no effect.

From the commit:

When no -rpcpassword is specified, use a special 'cookie' file for authentication.

Don't think so. I don't use it. I'm pretty sure it reads it from bitcoin.conf if it's not set explicitly.

Code:
  BITCOIND_RPCUSERPASS  bitcoind RPC interface username, then password, space-
                        separated (only one being provided will cause the
                        username to default to being empty, and none will
                        cause P2Pool to read them from bitcoin.conf)

You know, you may be right, I've never tried it without the user and pass....

For me starting p2pool looks something like this:

Code:
python ./run_p2pool.py RPC_USER RPC_PASS

RPC user and pass always set, it may work without it on localhost, will give it a try when I get a chance.

Has there been any word from forrestv as to weather this new "XT" client is actually compatible with p2pool with it's different block size params?

I'm using XT. Working good here. Still looking into what it actually patches and how it effects mining. Any info would be appreciated.

I wonder how this will change mining? Would it give Big pools a bigger advantage?
I know KNC are supporting it and that's one of there biggest sponsors.
Of course Bitmain is for this too.
Coming to a hard-fork means I'm supporting it at the moment.
"ChinaPool" is definitely going to kick it's weight around if this flies or not.
How do you feel about this please share.

No, but I've texted XT with P2Pool and it works as expected.

XT implements BIP101, among other things like improved double spend tracking.  BIP101 allows for increasing maximum block size, thereby removing the 1MB cap currently in place.

If you find a block with an XT node, you'll be able to tell because the version number will be different.  Currently, all blocks found by Core software are version 3.  Blocks found by XT are version 536870919.

Right now, it makes no difference because BIP101 (larger block sizes) doesn't go into effect until 1/11/2016 at the earliest.  However, come that date if 75% of blocks found are by XT then larger block support goes into effect and we've got a hard fork.

Have any blocks been found by a node running XT?

If it does fork to support larger block sizes I believe a code change on p2pool would need to be done for it to create larger blocks.

Thus far the only XT blocks found have been mined by Slush.  Sure, some of the other pools are putting things like "8MB" in their coinbase sigs, but they aren't mining to XT.  A few nodes here in p2pool are now, or are planning to very soon, use XT.

P2Pool.org - Now hosted on Github Pages!

I just moved p2pool.org over to Github pages, I'll save a few bucks on hosting, and now it's easy for anyone to contribute.

I'd love some help!

Some areas that could use improvement:

- Some of the links are out of date or broken
- Copy changes or additions welcome

And the big one:

The site was pretty much thrown together in a day, and the whole thing is a single HTML page using modals rather then traditional navigation, if anyone wants to fork it and redesign it with more traditional navigation and separate html pages for different content sections that would be just awesome!

The repo is: https://github.com/ChainQuery/p2pool.org/

The site lives in the 'gh-pages' branch: https://github.com/ChainQuery/p2pool.org/tree/gh-pages

Really hoping to get some folks to jump in and help out Smiley For anyone serious about helping that would like commit access, PM me.

WoW looks like things are moving fwd. thx windpath for putting up your effort, extra time & commitment towards p2p.

let's hope it'll expand further & attract more miners to come join us.
