Didn't we have scaling issues before? 

M

I was going to say, it seems like we are again. Browsing the p2pool.info logs, this is the worst string of long blocks in basically a month, and it happened right as the pool started getting more hashes. We were getting over 300ghash more and more often and now we're over 425 with ease.

I'm hoping that's not the case and we're just in the bad run. 

But if we drop below 95% according to the stats, I'm going back to ozcoin. Sad

Thanks, but I like Ozcoin.  I usually go PPS which is 5% anyhow.

We're now down to 89.5% for last 7 days.  It's been a really rough 7 days.

30 days is still > 100%.  If/when it drops to 95%, I'm switching back to ozcoin.

Does anyone know for sure if this is a really bad luck streak, or a scaling issue?  We were doing great until the additional 120g/h came online.  Seems awful coincidental to me.  And I don't believe in coincidence.

There are a lot of people here who know a lot more about how mining and p2pool works than I do.  But I haven't seen anyone chime in and indicate whether this appears to be a scaling issue, or a bad luck streak.  Surely there would be tell tale indicators if it was a scaling issue that would help us determine if it's really bad luck or not?


***DOUBLE EDIT - I did my math wrong twice. Sad

My stale rate hasn't increased.. I'm hovering around 5%.  Pool stale rate hasn't changed that much either.
My payout is higher than it should be for 1% of the pool hashpower.  Right now the pool is at 500g/h, I'm at 5 g/h.  That's 1%, so I should get a payout of .5btc.  The last couple days I've been around .6 to .65.  That tells me someone, or a bunch of someones out there aren't getting their fair share of hashes.

I really don't like the idea of leaving.. but I'm not seeing bright ideas as to what's going on.  Hopefully those bright people are furiously coding behind the scenes. Smiley

I think there's something wrong with the p2Pool 7 day stats. If you calculate manually, the last 7 days is better than average luck. In fact, there's been better than average luck at p2Pool for the last 6 weeks now. Check the last 7 days for yourself:

Any word on if Namecoin merged mining will ever be pooled like BTC?

doubt that, not worth worrying about anyway as nmc's keep dropping in price relative to btc.
and when you figure in NMC's current diff relative to BTC, the drop is even more significant about NMC's future...

-- Smoov

... also ... NMC are free - why would anyone expect them to have any value?

They seem to have more value than the other crypto currencies...

M

actually they're lower than ltc atm even though litecoin produces something like 3 times as many coins/day.

I think p2pool's hashrate is slightly underreported seeing as stales aren't included in the hashrate calculations even though stales can be blocks.

p2pool.info shows the last 7 days as 0.89.  I could see rounding error being the difference between your 0.91 and p2pool.info's 0.89.

What I'm not understanding is how that's better than average?  I thought 1 was average?

M

What you do is take all the "ActualShares" and divide by all the "ExpectedShares", and then take the average (add all the ActualShares/ExpectedShares and divide by the number of rounds, 22 in this case). That average is 0.91. This means that the rounds were 9% shorter than expected which means you solved more blocks for your shares (or it took fewer shares to solve your blocks.)

Round length / D gets smaller with good luck and larger with bad luck, and is what I was referring to. I'm not sure how the luck is calculated on the p2Pool graphs or what it means, exactly.

Anyway, the available stats say the good luck is still rolling for p2Pool. Don't sell it short!

I don't think it's that. I'm using the same data the luck graphs should be using, and this is not just a few percent points of difference. This is going from shorter than average rounds (what the data shows) to longer than average rounds ( what the luck graphs show).

I'm not trying to pick a fight with the p2Pool.info guys - I think that website is invaluable. I just think the luck graphs need to be fixed.

What you do is take all the "ActualShares" and divide by all the "ExpectedShares", and then take the average (add all the ActualShares/ExpectedShares and divide by the number of rounds, 22 in this case). That average is 0.91. This means that the rounds were 9% shorter than expected which means you solved more blocks for your shares (or it took fewer shares to solve your blocks.)

Round length / D gets smaller with good luck and larger with bad luck, and is what I was referring to. I'm not sure how the luck is calculated on the p2Pool graphs or what it means, exactly.

Anyway, the available stats say the good luck is still rolling for p2Pool. Don't sell it short!

It's just coincidental that your number is .02 different from the number on the stats page?

Yes.

I don't know what the stats page is measuring for luck. At a guess, it's probably measuring the inverse of round length / D. So if you want to compare the actual result to anything, compare it to 1/0.89 which makes it about 20% different.

I've been averaging 0.126btc/day over the last 37days on p2pool with my 5770, my guess is my avg hashrate is just below 200mhash/s(I game as well sometimes on the 5770).  This is well above 100%pps so I can confirm our recent good luck is real but the p2pool.info stats may be a bit off somehow.

On an unrelated point my 5770 is only 5$ away from paying for itself over those 37 days.

We were doing great until the last week.  We went from 3-7 blocks a day average to 1-3 blocks a day average, with lower payout per block. Sad  (Note the p2pool.info stats show great numbers except for the last week.)

I'm going to do a week comparison.  I can now easily split my miners 50/50, so I have 2.6g/h going to ozcoin at 5% donation, and 2.6g/h going to p2pool.

I don't know for sure but when talking about pools in the 300-500ghash range I don't think 1 week is long enough for luck to even out to a reasonable level(maybe organofcorti knows how long it would take).

Comparing rounds per day isn't helpful unless you also compare hashrates. And yes, you earned less this week than last because there was even better luck last week. Even comparing your week's earnings with last weeks is tricky unless you have a large hashrate.

I'm going to do a week comparison.  I can now easily split my miners 50/50, so I have 2.6g/h going to ozcoin at 5% donation, and 2.6g/h going to p2pool.

Good idea. But remember, your variance will be a bit higher at p2Pool so make sure you make the comparison over a substantial time period.

I don't know for sure but when talking about pools in the 300-500ghash range I don't think 1 week is long enough for luck to even out to a reasonable level(maybe organofcorti knows how long it would take). 

This too. I hadn't thought of that until racerguy brought it up. If p2pool has 1/4 the hashrate of Ozcoin, you should average your results for p2Pool over four times as long. Even at one week for Ozcoin and 4 weeks for p2Pool, you'd still have at 95% confidence interval of +/- 18%. And which week would you select for averaging at Ozcoin?

Still, it's a great idea mdude77, and getting more "hands on" in this fashion might help you get a feel for the differences between pools. Good luck, and a weekly update on your progress wouldn't go astray on the Weekly Pool Statistics thread.

I think there's something wrong with the p2Pool 7 day stats. If you calculate manually, the last 7 days is better than average luck. In fact, there's been better than average luck at p2Pool for the last 6 weeks now. Check the last 7 days for yourself:

Code:
         Timestamp   ActualShares ExpectedShares
1  1344745354.000000  547055.000000 2036671.000000
2  1344740792.000000 9116832.000000 2036671.000000
3  1344649552.000000  134207.000000 2036671.000000
4  1344648269.000000 2121584.000000 2036671.000000
5  1344627801.000000 3184026.000000 2036671.000000
6  1344596756.000000 7983068.000000 2036671.000000
7  1344487657.000000 3886934.000000 2036671.000000
8  1344430970.000000  839057.000000 2036671.000000
9  1344418762.000000 1225598.000000 2036671.000000
10 1344401496.000000  814265.000000 2036671.000000
11 1344389344.000000  395892.000000 2036671.000000
12 1344383399.000000 2019198.000000 2036671.000000
13 1344353201.000000  279105.000000 2036671.000000
14 1344349060.000000 1526951.000000 2036671.000000
15 1344325803.000000  644660.000000 2036671.000000
16 1344315777.000000   35732.000000 2036671.000000
17 1344315245.000000  271678.000000 2036671.000000
18 1344311286.000000 1395283.000000 2036671.000000
19 1344289928.000000 1986950.000000 2036671.000000
20 1344258323.000000  152132.000000 2036671.000000
21 1344256008.000000  815393.000000 2036671.000000
22 1344243762.000000 1675975.000000 2036671.000000


The average round length / difficulty = 0.91. This is better than average.

You didn't include this very long block in your calculation (and p2pool.info did):

Code:
23 1344216828.000000 11306170.000000 2036671.000000

Probably you and p2pool.info just used a different definitions of "last 7 days".  p2pool.info includes rounds based on their end time (the timestamp of when the block was found).  So, the 7 day luck calculation include all blocks that were found in the 604,800 seconds (7 days) since the most recent block was found (not since "now").  

At the time of your post, the most recent block had been found at 1344745354.  So the cuttoff was 1344745354 - 604800 = 1344140554, which means that the long block found at 1344216828 was included in the 7 day range.

I should have thought of that, twmz. Yes, I take "now", subtract 7 days and include only rounds completed in that time. So i missed that stonking great round. Good news is your stats will show a much improved 7 day luck shortly Smiley

Which just goes to show that the 7 day luck isn't something mdude77 shouldn't be basing his mining decisions on just the last weeks rounds - the variance in such a short period of time can be huge.

My payout is higher than it should be for 1% of the pool hashpower.  Right now the pool is at 500g/h, I'm at 5 g/h.  That's 1%, so I should get a payout of .5btc.  The last couple days I've been around .6 to .65.  That tells me someone, or a bunch of someones out there aren't getting their fair share of hashes.
Include me in there, I've only found 5 shares in the past 24 hours. Undecided

What you do is take all the "ActualShares" and divide by all the "ExpectedShares", and then take the average (add all the ActualShares/ExpectedShares and divide by the number of rounds, 22 in this case). That average is 0.91. This means that the rounds were 9% shorter than expected which means you solved more blocks for your shares (or it took fewer shares to solve your blocks.)

Round length / D gets smaller with good luck and larger with bad luck, and is what I was referring to. I'm not sure how the luck is calculated on the p2Pool graphs or what it means, exactly.

Anyway, the available stats say the good luck is still rolling for p2Pool. Don't sell it short!
How is that done exactly? Does it count all of the high difficulty shares or does it translate them into difficulty 1 shares?

The pool hashrate and round duration are used to estimate the number of difficulty 1 shares.

My p2pool efficiency is only about 93%, someone has a clue what the reason for this could be?

I run my p2pool instance on a server with 100mbit/s connection, my latency to the server is about 20ms.
My miners are cgminer (with icarus boards) and btcminer (with ztex quads).
I rarely run any downloads on my local link to avoid an increase of latency and thereby stales. I even have qos set up to prefer my miners traffic to the normal web traffic while surfing. But efficiency still sucks hard.
Any ideas what else I could try?
