Is anyone having issues with Bitcoind/Bitcoin-QT v0.9.0?

I updated my P2Pool to v0.9.0 and I am getting an error now after restarting the server that it's lost connection with Bitcoind. Yet up until this point, I upgraded it a day after v0.9.0 came out its been running fine and transactions have been flowing.

working fine here.

It's working fine. I only notice that bitcoind getblock latency grows from 300ms to 800 - 900 ms.

default -minblocksize has been altered to 750,000, if you override that you'll maybe get your lower latency back

I've gone ahead and set up a public node for BTC to go along with my other couple coins.

http://us-east.royalminingco.com:9332/static/

The fee is .5% to pool and .5% donation to forrestv. This node has my patches related to helping small miners get less variance, and uses the interface which shows average "time to share" per-miner so you can see what's going on. Pseudo share vardiff is also set reasonably per miner so no ADDR+ tweaks are needed just for graph purposes. Next I want to fold in iongchun's miner-specific stats page, and add some extra charts/history/info to that.

It isn't like the world needs more public p2pool nodes, but I wanted to have at least one that I knew was using the changes I worked on for the alt coin pools. Smiley

More public node are a very good thing. People get less local latency and are able to compete better with dedicated nodes, lowering the barrier to entry, so more p2pool participants.

Nice to see p2pool steadily growing in hash rate and network share BTW. We are back down to about one day per block, after getting close to two days per block a few weeks ago.

I've gotta say an average share time of 5h40m hours compared to 1d8h block times (at the time I post) is better than I expected. At 6 shares per block found, and a SPREAD of 3, I'd average 18 shares at any given time once I've been mining for a few days. That'll drop if the pool hash rate grows, but atm, ~18 average blocks seems like plenty to make sure I'm paid on every block and my payments don't vary wildly. I'll need to actually see it in action first hand a few weeks, but personally I don't feel that is unacceptable variance at all.

It'll be nice if/when I can get some sort of miner-specific graph page up to plot this stuff over time and let you see visually at a glance your projected and real share values.

The absolutely biggest issue we have with variance is the block time. We've had four-day periods with NO blocks. That's just terrible for everyone. Thankfully our hash rate is growing faster than the network, so at the moment at least, this is becoming a slightly smaller problem, and hopefully this trend continues. Given that the new ASIC miners work so well with p2pool it seems like we have a real shot to survive. It was looking questionable for a while. People just would not tolerate rounds lasting a week or two, which is where we were headed.

I have a dedicated VPS node running bitcoind and p2pool and getting 5.8% DOA on local rate on 150Gh/s.  Everything running smooth and am now awaiting my first p2pool block.

What's the possibility of merging your tweaks, especially for the smaller miners, back up into forrestv's master branch?

I've sent in pull requests already and also for iongchun's auto-worker-diff branch which lets you have nice control over pseudo share difficulty. (This was better than my own little hack for pseudo shares so I dropped mine and use his myself.) iongchun also added an alt coin related fix for DIFF 0 work so I removed my pull request for that, since auto-worker-diff is all inclusive. My share difficulty change (branch vardiffbyaddress) was adopted by vertcoin p2pool repo when we did the hard fork long ago, so it's actually live network wide for them.

I still have more changes to the vardiff algorithm I want to test and such so my node will always run whatever experiment I'm doing at the time.

For the worker 'time to share' type stuff, I put in pull requests to p2pool for the minerstats branch and to p2pool-node-status as well.

I had problems - high latency, cpu peaks & connection errors like you - I gave up on it & went back to 0.8.6  Wink

what company are you using and how much is it?  I was considering the same thing and I couldn't find anything that had enough disk space for the entire btc chain w/o paying a bit more.

Hi Cart! You can review it here

https://github.com/forrestv/p2pool/pull/187

However there's nothing wrong with my original little fix if you don't want the auto-worker-diff options that iongchun added.

Yeah... Had to go with the second smallest droplet at Digital Ocean, where I already have droplets for other projects.  I first tried to piggy-back on an existing system but decided afterwards that I wanted a dedicated note to improve performance.  Less than ideal financially, but I really wanted to try out p2pool for a bit.

Thanks.  30gb drive is close.  would be really close if you tried merged mining.  I take it you're using linux?

Hey.. I've opened a bitcoin node in Portugal and hopefully I'll be able to drag some hashpower to the p2pool network.

http://176.111.106.65:9332

Please feel free to help me improve this node! Smiley
