why is the diff so high in version 13.1?

9k is a little bit high isn't it?

I don't get any shares. What can I do?

I think it has to do with the new “dust payout” elimination feature. It raises the difficulty enough to minimize transaction fees when spending mined coins. It appears you may be able to reduce the share difficulty again by adding “+n” to the miner username, where n is the desired share difficulty. However, you may incur heavy transaction fees in the future when you go to spend the mined coins.

Maybe someone can confirm this for sure. I've been finding it difficult to find detailed p2pool documentation lately for some reason.

3x longer shares = 3x higher difficulty = shares last 3x longer = approx. same payout per share per before, just find them less often and they stick around for longer.

The dust payout feature would raise difficulty on people, but I think that is more evident on LTC than BTC. I think the difficulty of dust in BTC is something like 1.5 or 2, but it is something reasonably larger on LTC (since LTC difficulty is commonly < 1)

You can override the dust-preventing difficulty with the "/" option, which sets the desired share difficulty ("+" option sets desired pseudoshare difficulty). Sorry about not adequately describing the new features. Documenting them will happen.

I believe I saw it somewhere - might be problem with ulimit -n,but I think I increased it to 2048 and it did not help.
Restarting p2pool helps.
Any ideas how to debug the problem or what to do ?
Shall I upgrade fedora (python-twisted-core-12.2.0-2.fc19.x86_64) ?
Thanks a lot for your time !

"fc19" is Fedora Core 19, that's really new, I'm unsure why they don't have a higher limit by default.  On a modern Linux system, with a lot going on, you should give yourself as many open file descriptors as you can.

I don't use Fedora, but the file should still be in the same place (I hope).  Edit the /etc/security/limits.conf file, put this at the bottom, don't forget the stars in the far left column:

Code:
* soft nofile 65536
* hard nofile 65536

Get rid of any other lines in the file that have "nofile" in them.  Unfortunately, it seems the maximum is 65536, the system simply won't let you set a higher limit (even though I wanted to).

Then, log out and log back in.  You should have a much higher limit now, verify with "ulimit -n" as you said.

Also, in your text you pasted, it says (in the big loud message) your Bitcoin daemon isn't running.  Something's seriously wrong on your system.  You should always have 3 programs running: bitcoind (or Bitcoin-Qt), p2pool, and bfgminer (or whatever miner you use).

My ulimit is 1024.... am I supposed to be having problems?

For some reason I got two payouts on the last two blocks (one normalish sized and one super tiny)?



Also, the payout on my node looks way low:

Payout if a block were found NOW: 0.01026656 BTC to ***. Expected after mining for 24 hours: 0.134 BTC per block.

This is running at ~7.5Ghash for well over a day, so it should be closer to the 0.134 value. It seems like the "payout if block were found now" is actually the smaller of the two payments that I got for the last couple blocks? What's going on here??

p2pool mining is beginning to look like a regular pool mining, something about it is definitely off...

You have two different addresses with shares in the current share chain.

And you can only expect the 24 hour payment estimate to match the actual payment you get from a block when the expected time per block is 24 hours.

I use the following in my setup script for ubuntu
Code:
# Increase open file limits
sudo sh -c 'echo "* soft nofile 16384" >> /etc/security/limits.conf'
sudo sh -c 'echo "* hard nofile 65536" >> /etc/security/limits.conf'
sudo sh -c 'echo "* soft nproc 4096" >> /etc/security/limits.conf'
sudo sh -c 'echo "* hard nproc 16384" >> /etc/security/limits.conf'

for Fedora it's  /etc/security/limits.d/90-nproc.conf

I have a question in regards to the pseudo difficulty set by the client.

Being that the share difficulty is 3x higher than it was before and I'm mining between 5,500 MH/s and 6,000 MH/s with my Jalapeno and having a poor connection at the current moment; would increasing the difficulty factor to say 4-8:

A.) Find shares more quickly?
B.) Raise my income vs running it at the default '1' difficulty

Thanks!

Thanks a lot for the tips.
The problem is cgminer - it just does not like p2pool or the fedora core 17 combination. Switched back to DiabloMiner.
I was using BFGminer some year ago with no problems (dunno now).

i just haven't seen a case of it recently, since i've sold nearly all my mining stuff and i don't get shares frequently enough on 'NewShare'...  I'm pretty sure I have all the commits in that v11?

oh, here is the share that my node punished, but was built on by another node, after the new block hit the network (note the # of transactions):

P2Pool > Share 360c92d3

here's mine:

here is the share that orphaned mine:

----------------------------

Share 360c92d3 was invalid, if it had been a block, it would have been an orphaned block.  Yet share 6b5c7b6f built off of it anyway.

That's why it seems to me like a slow bitcoind is actually beneficial to your p2pool payout... (but if you were to find a block, it'd significantly increase the chances of it being orphaned)

2013-07-19 08:34:40 received block 000000000000007001ad6e6314607c256c0d40ff802e0854978ae76bd5f89813 from xxxx

(last ed)

remember the couple of times I had a share say DOA, but it became 'undead'?   it stated 'punishing share X, Jumping from XYZ to ABC', but my share didn't build off of ABC, it built off of something else.

... so I'm guessing I must have built on some super old share, since I punished some godawful amount of other ones....   so it had no chance to not be orphaned...  btw, wtf changing the share it's jumping to as well

I guess w/ 30s this won't occur as much...  that makes 3 out of 5 orphans, possibly 4 out of 5 if you count the one up above (not sure about that).   same 3/5ths or so as before.   if pool hash rate was unchanged, presumably with 30s shares, it'd only be about 1/5th of the orphans

I've actually watched it as it occurred a couple of times now.

It places these late shares into my 'headers' section.  If I get a share during this time, then it builds off the share before all these 'punished' ones started appearing in my headers section.... the problem is, by the time I build off share x, punished share y already has one or two other shares below it.... but as it is never put in my share chain, I don't build off of it

re just happened like 3 minutes ago:

not a chance,

instead, this happened

the share that is shown as building off of d7be892d is @ 09:03:39 (209 transactions), prev block  000000000000003aecb7f4a40238707f6223f6a12160a1d71fd97e98b09facf6

the next share is at 09:04:10, but since I rejected the share @ 09:03:39, my share is automatically orphaned, once this other person with slower bitcoind builds off of it

zvs, you are complaining about a « problem » on an old version of p2pool running on a fork with an efficiency that would make even me jealous (my efficiency on the new code is between 102 and 107%).

AFAIK your efficiency was always stellar in your reports, even if what you describe happened in the most recent p2pool version what would be the problem and why should someone spend some time on this?

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

This has been already discussed here. Current share "punishing" mechanism is broken. I hope forrestv will eventually notice and fix it. Until then, I just comment out those three lines which "jump" to previous share and I don't really care if anyone suffers from it.

I have a question in regards to the pseudo difficulty set by the client.

Being that the share difficulty is 3x higher than it was before and I'm mining between 5,500 MH/s and 6,000 MH/s with my Jalapeno and having a poor connection at the current moment; would increasing the difficulty factor to say 4-8:

A.) Find shares more quickly?
B.) Raise my income vs running it at the default '1' difficulty

Thanks!

Anyone happen to know? /bump

Neither one. Pseudo shares are only there to keep track of your hashrate. Increasing the difficulty will just decrease the bandwidth between your miner and p2pool.

So, being that for the next 2 weeks I have a really bad internet connection; I should set my pseudo difficulty share to a higher amount so that it's not killing my internet speeds?

Also, thank you for answering my first question! Smiley

A higher share difficulty won't hurt anything; it'll just make your graphs go all over the place. I personally use difficulty 8 on my Jalapeno just to save some bandwidth. If you're mining on a node on your local network, however, the only thing you're really saving is maybe a tiny amount of CPU power.
