in command line:
ulimit -n 8192
and run p2pool

and check later if errors show.

Open files in linux-like system is also opened connections.


I edited /etc/security/limits.conf with limits of 10000 and I've been running p2pool for nearly 3 hours without a crash.
Weird though, because before I upgraded p2pool it was working, even with the limit set at 1024. Maybe it's because more users joined my pool?
Who knows.  Huh
Code:
$ lsof -c python | wc -l

On the node will tell you how many files p2pool has opened.
1494 files, wow.
That's why it was crashing, the limit was at 1024 before.
Thanks for the tip!

Code:
$ lsof -c python -a -i :9332 | wc -l  (miners should be 2xminers -1 )
$ lsof -c python -a -i :9333 | wc -l  (peers 2x -1 )

Can you do instead, replacing P2POOL_PID with run_p2pool.py's PID,
Code:
$ lsof -p P2POOL_PID
and pastebin the output and send it to me? P2Pool shouldn't be using that many files - seeing which it has open could help find the issue.

I am mining at 220 MH/s, are there any reasons why I shouldn’t raise my  difficulty? If I were to put it at 512 would this have any negative impact on my side? It's just less traffic right? I already know this doesn’t change my chances of finding a share of the required difficulty. I'm just wondering what happens on my end.

Is it true if you set it too high and not get a share in a round, it basically liked like you weren't there?

At that hashrate, you probably don't want to increase difficulty. It will not significantly change network load but will increase income variance.

This gets to the crux of my question. How or why would it increase income variance at a pool like p2pool where we are looking for high difficulty shares. I'm not disagreeing with you, I'm asking why? Do we need to submit these lower diff shares for some reason?

At 220MH/s estimated time to share is 8 hours. For instance, that means that there's 5% probability of not finding any shares for 24 hours. For two week period, your estimated number of shares is 42, and there's 5% probability to find 31 or less shares, which means only 75% of estimated income. Of course, this also works in positive direction, and your income may be higher than estimated as well. Now if you increase your share difficulty, this variation will be even higher. If you are not a gambler, you want stable income.

When mining in p2pool, your income variance depends on both pool's blockrate variance and your own sharerate variance. For details see my post here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=18313.msg2060914#msg2060914

I guess the only thing I would disagree with you about would be that when I change local diff my time to share goes up. The p2pool estimated time to share only goes up because I'm submitting less shares no? It's not a real measurement of hash speed. Doesn’t the work I’m doing locally stay the same I just submit less garbage.

If you double the difficulty then you half the number of shares you submit, but each share is worth double. Because you're submitting less shares, the variance you will see will increase.

i just turned my stuff back to p2pool for a final hurrah i suppose you could say, before i shut everything down

but doesn't anyone find it concerning that someone has 33% of the hashrate?  i also was unable to locate the IP address of this person, so they're probably behind a firewall, without many outgoing connections, judging from the other nodes I checked (IP address reported as relaying their share is quite a spread)

just found it curious since i've gotten 2 orphans out of 6 already,  both because of the double share from 1Nasty

although i guess it could be partally attributed to using a US server

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).

Why would it be disconcerting?  p2pool is really small.  there are filthy rich miners who have more than the entire hash rate of p2pool.

the answer to your question is

no, it wouldn't change anything, unless this amount was higher than the share difficulty

i.e. MrT/500+500, wouldnt matter.  MrT+2000 would, if the share difficulty was under 2000

the hash rate reported on your stats will be bizarre (that's what it uses those small ones for), but in the grand scheme of things you'd still get just as many shares

because it decreases efficiency of other people using p2pool when someone is using inefficient connection and is able to put out 33% of hashrate?

does it need further explaining?

ok, so i just decided to check the headers for the hell of it

This seems like a problem with p2pool, not with the miner.  We want more hashrate, but not too much in one spot?

...

well, the one share every 30 seconds would help.  should be implemented asap

and two seconds is a long time

ed: i dunno, 5 minutes later?

check the verified heads, you'll probably find at least one

ah, 15 minutes later.

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 just turned my stuff back to p2pool for a final hurrah i suppose you could say, before i shut everything down

but doesn't anyone find it concerning that someone has 33% of the hashrate?  i also was unable to locate the IP address of this person, so they're probably behind a firewall, without many outgoing connections, judging from the other nodes I checked (IP address reported as relaying their share is quite a spread)

just found it curious since i've gotten 2 orphans out of 6 already,  both because of the double share from 1Nasty

although i guess it could be partally attributed to using a US server

Why would it be disconcerting?  p2pool is really small.  there are filthy rich miners who have more than the entire hash rate of p2pool.

M
because it decreases efficiency of other people using p2pool when someone is using inefficient connection and is able to put out 33% of hashrate?

does it need further explaining?

Yes please! How a high-latency miner with 33% total hashrate can decrease other's efficiency?

Easy. He just need found 2 shares in row faster than rest of nodes.
share chain:
S1
S2<S1
...
Sa<S9
Sb<Sa - yours
Sc<Sa - thiers
Sd<Sc - thiers n2 -> your Sb is orphaned
Se<Sd - someone else
Sf<Sd - thier n3
Sg<Sf - thier n4 -> Se is orphaned too
He got 4 shares, 2 other orpahned in proecess. Because of high latency he is not aware of other shares.

But his probability to find a share faster than others is only 33%, and about 11% for finding two shares before the rest. If he fails, his shares will be orphaned. As a result, he harms himself more, just as planned!

Maybe he is hitting full power for 10 sec every 20 sec? ;]
Joking, but it is all about luck. Higher latency means that his shares will be "punished" each block.
How fast he can create 2 shares in row depends on his power and how good he is connected to network.
