I'm wondering if someone has just started a new (large) mining op.... several pools (ie: not just p2pool) have sudden bad luck; slush for example has gone from 3-5 hours per round to over 15 hours for the current round.

Last new block on p2pool was about 4 days ago ?

Else p2pool will die in some month.

P2Pool is here since 2011 ... little boy !

I get extremely bad vibes looking at that picture, she's definitely attractive but I don't think she's a nice person to be around. There's a lot of talk about satanic/psychopathic people in Hollywood.

To stay on-topic I agree, p2pool isn't going away any time soon.

Nothing quite like a conspiracy theory... they come up every time luck doesn't look so good. Nope, it's just that p2pool's hashrate is insignificant.

The luck of one pool has absolutely no effect on the luck of other pools. Rapidly rising difficulty is to blame here.

It's not meant to be a conspiracy theory... just trying to figure why all of the pools I'm involved in are suddenly getting such bad luck/long rounds...

Same thing - bad luck. Look around and you'll see not all pools are having bad luck. Overall luck is "average" across all the pools. Some are having a streak of good luck.

hypotethical question
if kano used his pool to mine with p2pool as a node, would it be more efficient mining fot his pool or not?

I guess I've just selected a bad set of pools to look at then.

Interesting idea... however I suspect Kano wouldn't want to risk the stability of his pool software (I'm assuming you mean altering/extending ckpool so shares are distributed with/like p2pool).

I'd prefer to ask: What would need to be different within bitcoin to make solo mining feasible again ?

I suspect Smaller (not Larger) blocks would be the solution as it would give the 'small' guy (< 1Th/s) a better chance of an income......

OK, you want conspiracy theory?

I'm going to venture a guess that it's these hundreds of v14 p2pool clients that keep connecting to my node that are responsible for the python exploit that's causing the bitcoind memory leak. I'm also going to guess that sandboxing the compiled version of p2pool mitigated the problem and they hit me with an EMP targeted at the resonance frequency of the inductors in my PSUs shutting down both my mining computers as show of force that they can shut me down any time they want.

Tell me "Big boy" why P2pool is here since 2011, but now falls in a deep hole. And when the falls end and pool rise up?
Today global power is from 0.7 to 1Ph and 123 hours of waiting - do You think this is normal and nothing to worry about?
If you really think that you have leed balls.

P2Pool is a support (backup) for all pools of bitcoin around the world ... usually farm start, on P2Pool, different grid to measure the performance, and then switch to local stratum server.

P2Pool never die at the end, because, it's the last wall of mining process (DDoS proof).

The power of P2Pool, you earn the SAME AMOUNT of bitcoins when you are on a big pool or on the P2Pool ... after 3 months.  Roll Eyes

I mine on P2Pool since 2 years.

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

Hi all.  Thought I'd check out p2pool for my local 16.5TH of mining.

Happy to say it all went smoothly for doing straight bitcoin mining.  Saw a few python exceptions during startup, but once it got initialized, it appears to be working fine.

I'm not having as much luck with merged mining bitcoin and namecoin.

Syntactically all appears fine, and initialization proceeds as above.  However I see:



Reoccurring frequently in the console output.  All my miners are also showing a Diff of 1, which is a change.

Any thoughts?

Edit:  Also seem to be stuck at 8 connections, even though I'm starting up with " --max-conns=256" and my bitcoind has 19 connections.

Pool stats at:  http://ngspoe.carpenter-farms.us:9332/static/

Update:  Found my stupid mistake, was specifying namecoins coin port instead of the rpcport on the --merged line.  The Diff of 1 also cleared itself up after a few minutes.

Still concerned about the number of connections being low.  Any thoughts on how to encourage more of them?

Welcome!

Be sure port 9333 is open for inbound connections, if it already is be patient... The inbound peers will come Smiley

As an aside, 256 is an insanely high number of peers, not much benefit from that many peers... We limit our node to 35, 25 inbound and 10 out...

Thanks.  Somehow I missed that port reference from the guide I was using to install.  I had 9332 open, but not 9333.  It is now opened and dnatted to my p2pool VM.  Not sure it matters but I'll restart the p2pool just to be safe.  I'll drop max connections some while its down.

you do not need to bind with every existing node. I run my node satisfied with 3 out 1 in connections and relaynode by Matt. I use github bitcoind with no conf change with <0.2s gbt latency (0.165s daily average just now, monthly average 0.188s) and github p2pool 15.0-11 keeping both in last version.

Are you running the latest source from the github page?  There was a patch released post version 15 that fixed the connecting of version 14 peers.  That might be the issue you are having.  The swarm of remaining version 14 peers will keep on trying to connect and send you shares, creating problems on your node.

Good to know, thanks.  Over the past 24ish hours I've seen it vary from 6 out, 0 in to 7 out, 1 in.  No idea what drives that, but it sounds like those numbers are somewhat healthy.

The http://ngspoe.carpenter-farms.us:9332/static/ page is confusing me a bit.  As of this post, I've found 41 shares, 8 have been orphaned (which I kind of understand), but my payout should a block be found is forecasted at 0 btc?  Shouldn't I expect to get some small payout (my shares/totalshares * BTC reward)Huh
