This has probably been asked before but I can't find it anywhere.

If i set a -f 5 when i run p2pool, where does the 5% go and how often.
I've been mining with an address as user name and have been getting paid normally, but i'm lost as to where my fees might be.

When you set a 5% fee, then there is a 5% random chance for each of the shares you find that it will be assigned to the fee address (specified on the command line or automatically chosen from the connected wallet) instead of the address you pass in as the username.

Thanks so much that information just seemed to not exist on the internet!

and asking 1.0% for the author ?


decent people wait for it , they dont take it.


It's entirely optional. If you don't want to pay it and can't be bothered to disable it, that's your own fault.

Sorry if this has been explained before but many people in the past couple of pages have been saying they are getting 200..400..600MHash/s.  Is that correct?  I thought mining with a single video card would be producing KHash/s and not MHash/s like bitcoin.

Currently I have:

AMD 7970: ~600KHash/s
AMD 7870: ~350KHash/s
AMD 5870: ~350KHash/s.

Technically I am running ~1.3MHash/s now.. so I doubt someone with a AMD 7770 is getting 200MHash/s but maybe I am totally missing out.  Moved from bitcoin mining to Litecoin yesterday.  Started with notroll pool but realized they have major issues paying out but in less than a day I got 2 LTC which seems about right.

..and of course after checking the litecoin calculator I come up with ~470 LTC a day if you ran 200MHash/s.. so I'm 99.9999% sure everyone else is misspeaking. 

I am p2pool mining BTC with an AMD 7770  and I am getting 220 MHash/s. I was getting 200 I got 20 more after a few tweaks in cgminer. I am also curious about what other people are getting with this card and what they are doing for said results.

From https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison, approx 200 looks about right for the HD7770.

If you don't set a address the fee percentage will go to a address in the bitcoind wallet that p2pool is set to use and creates a address in.

I wanted to makes sure I've done what I'm supposed to do here. My Mhash/s are maxed out for my card, my latency is at or below  .1s. I am using cgminer and was told I should use the --fix-protocol command to long poll vs. using stratum, I wasn’t having any known issues using stratum. Does someone mind telling me why one would be better for me vs the other.

if you aren't having any problems with stratum, then don't change it

it could just be a problem with high latency connections

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).

I was reading something about a divergence between other pools difficulty rating and p2p's, and cgminer was geared towards the other pools method. But yeah if it isn’t broke don’t fix it.

hi forrestv:
what do you think of the problems mentioned in this topic: https://forum.litecoin.net/index.php/topic,3193.0.html
when using popool for ltc mining,the payout rises at first,and when the payout for one miner reaches the standard level for the miner's hashrate ,the payout begin to drop very fast!
it seems the pool rate,the Share difficulty and the local rate haven't changes so much, why?
It seems it's very easy for a new worker to find the Shares when he first join the pool and begin to work,but with the time passes by,it will become more and more difficult to find the shares,In this progress,the worker's hash rate and the pool rate haven't changed so obviously ! I think this can't be simply caused by the "lucky",do u think so?

What kind of "latency issues" were you having? High "Bitcoin Getwork Latency" or low efficiency? The former doesn't matter too much.

In my experience, "Bitcoin Getwork Latency" starts to impact efficiency negatively when it reaches the [0.10s, 0.20s] range and things start to get ugly above that.

Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

Well don't I feel like an idiot.  My bad, I forgot that P2Pool allows all the different cryptocurrencies.  I am mining LTC and seems that everyone else is talking about BTC.  I followed this link directly from a Litecoin pool comparison chart.

...carry on

I screwed up somehow. I had everything running great and started messing around and somehow now when I start p2pool it doesn’t load the shares it says 0 shares verified.  In the data/bitcoin folder the shares.xx files are missing (I'm sure I'm at fault here) and when I download a new copy of p2p no new ones are created when I start it.
I just said in a previous post if it isn’t broke don’t fix it.


NEVERMIND: It seems to have worked itself out.I'm turning everything on and leaving it alone.....

EDIT:
Now that it's been brought up (by me). What are the shares.xx files?

It is normal and harmless when you restart node and download share chain.

I've done that a few times and my miner keeps telling me lost connection at " blah blah" when p2p hangs before it tells me got incomplete block.


p2p freezes says processing shares from blah blah, my cpu spikes to 100% (python), a minute or two later the incomplete message and then my miner is disconnected.

so you've never downloaded the complete share chain?

unless your p2pool is on a ramdrive and not backed up, you shouldnt be downloading the entire share chain every time you restart (unless it's been ~2 days since you last ran it)

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).

Yep every time I restart p2p it downloads the shares. I am just running p2p through the ubuntu terminal using "python run_p2p.py" command. I am new to mining and ubuntu so if I'm doing something wrong let me know.

I get an error when I try to make install. So I’ve just been inputting my parameters into the terminal and running python run_p2p.py.This is all very new to me. I have the dependencies.But yes I do download the share chain every time I start p2p.

Is anyone else getting errors like:

Quote
2013-05-13 22:24:44.834000 > p2pool.util.jsonrpc.NarrowError: -12345 lost contact with bitcoind

in the new 11.4 and are stuck with p2pool not accepting any shares?

as in:

Quote
2013-05-13 22:27:02.755000  Local: 0H/s in last 0.0 seconds Local dead on arrival: ?? ? Expected time to sh
are: ?? ?
2013-05-13 22:27:02.755000  Shares: 0 (0 orphan, 0 dead) Stale rate: ?? ? Efficiency: ?? ? Current payout: 0
.0000 BTC

I'm testing again by copying over all my old data to the the data dir in the new p2pool folder but I'm not sure. I'm also going to try running it for longer.

FYI: windows pre-compiled, doing merged mining with namecoind and I am also continually getting:

Quote
2013-05-13 22:27:05.797000 Processing 23 shares from 71.39.52.34:9335...
2013-05-13 22:27:13.082000 > Error while processing Event callbacks:

2013-05-13 22:27:13.082000 >   File "p2pool\node.pyc", line 289, in set_best_share

with a whole bunch of lines listed as per the last line.

Edit: watching it. The graph shows my hashrate and that seems to be working fine. Still no shares (0, 0 orphan, 0 dead) and I got a few "punishing share for block-stale detected". Not sure what those are. Also got some "twisted.internet.connectionlost" and something about being disconnected locally. My "dead" on the graph spiked once to 100% for 1 tick. Other oddities include only one incoming peer, when I limited to 8/8. 11.1 immediately connected to at least 3-4 and eventually to 8.


Edit, Edit: So I do have a number under "payout if block were found NOW" so I am thinking everything is working fine, regardless of these weird errors. I understand there are to be errors normally but I was worried since there were errors I was not getting in 11.1
