FYI,you can send commands to a running bitcoind instance from another window. It is annoying that it doesn't just log to stdout or else fork to the background by default, but since it doesn't, just open a new command window and run the commands to access bitcoind as usual, and the one that you run will talk to the already-running instance and send you the data.

So, to get information about the currently running instance of bitcoind, just open a new command window and type 'bitcoind getinfo' (no quotes) and it will start a new instance of bitcoind that talks to the running instance and will spit out the requested information.

Although I haven't tested it, I hear it should be possible to tell the GUI to talk to a running bitcoind as well, but I don't what arguments that would require.


You can use either bitcoind or bitcoin-qt (GUI) while mining w/ p2pool.
bitcoind when running unintuitively is blocking and responds to no commands.
Once bitcoind is running you can simply run the desired command from a second command line (in windows).

Code:
bitcoind getbalance

to get a list of all RPC
Code:
bitcoind help

Thanks.  I didn't know about the command line commands, I didn't start working with bitcoins until the GUI was already done.  Those work for my purposes.

Including wallet functionality in p2pool doesn't seem like a good solution.

Any particular reason why not?  It seems like the absolute easiest system for a newbie windows miner would be a simple one piece program that you install and it gives you the p2pool program, a wallet, bitcoind, and a usable GUI with info such as current payout, total mined, wallet balance, mined per day, perhaps even integrate a miner if that is possible.  Such that you just install the program using all defaults, run the .exe and you are mining.  If you don't want to use the included wallet and wallet functionality, you can use the equivalent of the -a command and use your own wallet located wherever.

talking of....
can I set static namecoin address in merged p2pool mining?
No, the namecoin (and other merged chains) side is pure solo mining.
Quote from: Ed
thank you, naimecoind getinfo show "generate" : false,
it is right?
That "generate" is whether namecoind is generating (using cpu). False is probably what you want.

Any particular reason why not?  It seems like the absolute easiest system for a newbie windows miner would be a simple one piece program that you install and it gives you the p2pool program, a wallet, bitcoind, and a usable GUI with info such as current payout, total mined, wallet balance, mined per day, perhaps even integrate a miner if that is possible.  Such that you just install the program using all defaults, run the .exe and you are mining.  If you don't want to use the included wallet and wallet functionality, you can use the equivalent of the -a command and use your own wallet located wherever.

Duplicated work, security, and the fact that bitcoind is in beta (v 0.6).  

Every time there is a change to bitcoind, p2pool developers would need to spend time figuring out what the change it, how to integrate it into bitcoind/p2pool hybrid.  bitcoind exposes JSON for a reason to allow integration without requiring a custom hybrid application.

Making a GUI or web dashboard for p2pool is currently possible.  If a static address is used you can even lookup total revenue via blockchain.info. You could also lookup low level miner stats via cgminer JSON API.  Someone just needs to do it.

Lastly making p2pool friendly to complete noobs is likely futile.  As p2pool grows it becomes less attractive to tiny noob miners no matter how easy the code becomes.  So building robust tools which are attractive to medium sized miners is likely a better use of resources.

Don't forget about http://p2pool.info/

I use it to check stats all the time from my phone.  It would be great if it had additional stats for individual mining addresses.

Fine with me.  Full disclosure, though, that I borrowed the idea from an image I saw in someone else's forum avatar, so it's not my original idea.

I dunno about on p2pool.info but if you go to blockchain.info you can get some good info about what's happening at your payout address

http://blockchain.info/address/1CLYeVZdVh5XWmQxU5euYbNQ3LwqLhBjbT

of course replace the address above with your own payout address.

How do i monitor my payout address on p2pool.info?

1. Go to http://p2pool.info
2. Switch to the Current Payouts tab
3. Find your address, and click the star icon
4. Come back from time to time and look for the yellow row

If your question really is, "how do I know what address I am using" then you are doing it wrong* Smiley  Instead of letting p2pool choose an address dynamically, pick one yourself.  Get a new address form your preferred bitcoin wallet  and do one of the following:

1. Specify that address as your username on all of your miners
2. Or specify that address using the command line when you run the p2pool node using the -a parameter



*Yes, technically it's not wrong to let p2pool get a dynamic address, but it just confuses people and there is no real benefit to letting it be dynamic, so just don't do it.

"specify that address using the command line when you run the p2pool node using the -a parameter"

then it won't be unknown.  If you have it setup for dynamic address it will change everytime p2pool restarts so even if you figure it out it will be different next time.  Just follow the recommendation.  STOP p2pool, start it with -a (payout address) parameter.  Then you will always know what it is.

It's only unknown if you not choosing it explicitly.  Stop doing that.

If you want to know what address it has been using for past mining, look through the log file.  It outputs the dynamic address in the log when it starts up.  You should also see it in the cached_payout_address file in the data directory.

Ah, I see that something broke on p2pool.info.  I'll have to fix it.

Based on your "current payout" graph and the info from the past 2 blocks, my guess is that your payout address is 1NPucNnkyxy2jaFSzMvWhTWByzUZBkX6oF.
