some of these places will get lots more orphans now that i took 3 relays down ,

dunno why nobody makes proper use of p2pool-node

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).

the thing seems to scale up too much?  the 2.3m for 1CzLSNz7V6EufECrjvMXBiVo8Tu7z3XgkF seems excessive

there's a serious issue w/ propagation here, too many big miners on private nodes, probably with the default random 6 connections.

28 out of the last 30 shares received by 195.72.200.193 came from one of my 3 nodes, which I just restarted 90m ago...  195.72.200.193 is running @ 5thash.  It had 5 incoming connections, 9 good shares, 2 orphans, 3 doa after running for an hour.

WTF does it only have 5 incoming connections for?   I bet 2 or 3 of those were even just random connections.  Maybe 2 or 3 on --p2pool-node?  that's just absurd

then again, I guess p2pool is a bit of a microcosm of the bigger pools, right?  so it's good for the 5thash pool to get lots of orphans and DOAs?  shrug.

if you want to improve your own efficiency rating, --p2pool-node 5.9.24.81 and --p2pool-node 198.12.127.2 ..  they are hashing at a combined 8ghash right now, so it doesn't benefit those specific pools in any meaningful way

for any other person that does,  the person that doesn't loses efficiency relative to that person & hence to the pool as a whole (or at least until some get DDoSed again)

One of our Jupiters is hashing well currently on P2Pool using the latest firmware.  We're going to leave it on there for twenty-four hours and if all is well put both on there.  Which should add ~1.1TH/s to the pool.

Can you share your node address so we can see stats, and paste cgminer output from Jupiter? I am curious how you can say "it's hashing well" when AFAIK KNC firmware is still doing full stop for 2-3sec everytime when LP/work restart arrives, lol.

The .98 firmware and cgminer 3.6.6 solved the horrible work restarts.  KNC's do work well on p2pool now.  I restarted recently, but here is about a 12 hr run.  The cgminer hashrate displays lower than the pool average reports - so don't take that as the true rate.  I average around 520GH/s on my node stats page, that's what I'm paid on right?

Total
Area: 639PH

orphan
Area: 15.4PH (2.4% total)

8.33% is high orphan rate that can be fixed rather easily, that fellow in Taiwan that runs a node has a 7.34% orphan rate over 1648 shares

anyone in western or eastern europe (also including novgorod and basically anything else west of that) should be at 5% or less

i guess 36 shares isn't a very large sample though, maybe just got unlucky with the, uh, pot luck block switches

 it's strange when i look at all these european nodes and they're all at 7%+ orphan rate,  yet only 3 ppl  have even ever asked me about how to fix this

though i'd say it requires more like 8 outgoing connections to be a sure thing

would have to see more of the log to know about the rejected stuff

the output changes, i dunno, ive never seen anything like that.  i turned off all p2pools again like 3 hrs ago though.  is it some new git version?

I'm about to install the bitcoin-qt client on the computer i'm running my miner through, I guess it takes a few days now... will it impair the efficiency of my asic machine?
I want to join p2pool but I have one computer I work on, and one that does the mining (which I had to replace recently - thus - no client  Cry ).

You can use any public node you find, just use ur payout address as username.
Try ping to find node closest to you.

If your machine is reasonably fast, it can run P2Pool, your miners, the lot.  Anything with an i3 or better is fine.

The main restriction with running your own node is bandwidth.  The average DSL connection can't provide what p2pool and bitcoin need to keep your stale rate low.

You should define what the average DSL connection is (this changes wildly between countries). I have what I consider one (in my country >10/1 Mbps ADSL connections are common) and I don't have any problem with my stale rate (obviously I changed the default settings of both bitcoind and p2pool).

re: gogxmagog - the cost of running a node locally can possibly offset any fees or extra DOA incurred by pointing at a public node instead, depending on the cost of your elec and if you normally keep that system running 24/7, I guess.  I can mine @ a 200ms latency node and get about 2% DOA.  Dunno what ASIC you have, some of them have a few seconds latency, which would be useless w/ p2pool.  Some don't.

is it normal to always only have 6 out connections? i mean, every once in a while i will see 7 or 8, but the majority of the time its only 6.

Im trying to find ways to really improve performance. I had an older machine running my node with just ubuntu server, but my efficiency was terrible, less than 80% after 48 hours. So i switched up to my windows laptop and currently running over 100% at just under 48 hours. my latency has also decreased. but i have only produced 1 share with 13gh/s. When i was running on my slower server i had produced nearly 5 shares 1 orphan in 48 hours.

I just think something is wrong here but i cant pinpoint it.

71.91.202.165:9332 is my node running on a 30Mbps cable connection.

yeah, 6 is the default.  restart p2pool and use  --p2pool-node 5.9.24.81 and --p2pool-node 198.12.127.2   ... that'll give you 8 outgoing connections, with guaranteed connection to two good nodes

the shares sound perfectly normal for 13gh/s... just a little bit unlucky

(oh, and you got lucky before that.. isn't it like 12hrs per share on avg?)

Is bandwidth the isssue, or is it really latency?  I'm not using p2pool atm, but I don't recall it using much BW when I did...

There is no doubt i had great luck over the weekend.. i had racked up 10 shares with 2 orphans in 3 days. I was using p2pool a few weeks ago and had similar luck, but bitcoind became corrupted and i had to start all over.

Yes, with 13Gh/s, its showing 13hrs per share on avg

or so you say...  You should define what you consider a problematic stale rate.


Obviously it's anything that brings your average efficiency lower than what you can expect to earn on a competing pool.

If you are above 100% you know your stale rate isn't a problem. The grey area depends on what your other options are.

In my case I wouldn't switch to another pool unless my average efficiency were below 97%. So for me a problematic stale rate is one that brings my efficiency below 97%.
