Just saw a payment that was too high and found this
Code:
2012-02-24 21:29:38.976578 GOT BLOCK FROM MINER! Passing to bitcoind! http://blockexplorer.com/block/000000000000094d9ff2c8bfad49aeb36f569f4f9e5f9750f27924323eec244b

That's my first block on p2pool.
Hmm I wonder what that is:
value :   0.00077170 BTC
scriptPubKey :   OP_IFDUP OP_IF OP_2SWAP OP_VERIFY OP_2OVER OP_DEPTH

also Smiley Your coinbase (7) : 062f503253482f (./P2SH/)

Does that translate to yay I found a block and got some extra BTC?  Tongue

block finder bounty?
The miner  which finds an actual block (main blockchain block) will receive a bonus (5% if I recall correctly), as an extra incentive to report winning blocks Smiley

It also affects people who have bitcoin with a crappy network connection, because if all the blocks you find end up being orphaned because of a poor bitcoin configuration, you will not get the block finder bonus you were due.

Keep in mind that it's not an "extra payment" (as "bonus" might imply) since is taken out of the available 50 BTC for the block.  In other words, every non-block finder gets a little less than they would normally have if the entire block was being split.  Because blocks are found (over time) proportionally to the hashrate of the miners, it ends up being a wash in the long term.  You make a little less in the blocks you don't find, but you make more for any blocks you find, and the two offset each other over time.

So it ends up being neutral for people who are doing everything correctly and it is a penalty for anyone who is not doing things correctly (either bad bitcoin setup or intentionally withholding blocks).

I guess it's a good thing to use the --irc-announce switch, but is there anything needed in terms of firewall configuration for this to work? If it's only an outgoing connection it should simply work ...

No. It'll only increase spam in p2pool's IRC channel.

but is there anything needed in terms of firewall configuration for this to work?

Yes.

Okay, disabled it ^^ ... didn't know it was really just a chat announce, I thought it would improve something ^^. Thanks for your reply!

Are you using the latest version of CGminer? With no options (=dynamic, 2 gpu threads), I only get ~1% rejected. You are talking about the rejects that cgminer shows, right?

Sigh ... copied directly from the cgminer README:
Q: How do I tune for p2pool?
A: p2pool has very rapid expiration of work and new blocks, it is suggested you decrease intensity by 1 from your optimal value, and decrease GPU threads to 1 with -g 1.

Is the machine running P2Pool overloaded or underprovisioned? Some people running it on Atom processors have reported higher miner rejection rates.

I am merged mining, BTC, NMC, IXC, I0C, DVC, GRP and CLC all at once.

I0coin has a much lower difficulty than IXCoin, yet I am seeing IXCoin blocks but no I0Coin blocks.

Does it actually submit the work to all the daemons it has enough difficulty for?

I've gotten a few i0coin blocks but no ixcoin blocks so far..

How many CLC connections do you have?  I've got CLC merged with me but I only have 2 connections so I'm guessing I'm on my own fork of the chain now...

I have two CLC connections too, and presumably luke-jr is no longer merged mining it with Eligius miners' hashing power as I have also got some confirmed blocks. Hmm or he is and I too am on a fork?

Maybe you are one of my two connections and I am one of your two? 142.177.234.* is one of the class C networks my ISP assigns me an IP on, and is the one I am on right now. Got a connection from that net?

It should, though it hasn't been tested well. Can you check P2Pool's log for any mentions of "Merged block submittal"?

Hmm heading off to check log, I just noticed I am now constantly getting "2012-02-26 01:51:47.863969 Bitcoin connection lost. Reason: Connection was closed cleanly." and/or not cleanly. Often its non-cleanly once followed by cleanly twice. This is with my instance that is mining litecoins and no merged ming so there aren't three daemons its talking too it must be makign and breacking connections to litecoind over and over very fast or something but neither the litecoind nor the minerd outputs show any inidcation they thing anythign is wrong.

Hmm where does p2pool put its log? Offhand I don't see one in the current directory of the tasks running it nor in its own directory nor in /var/log ...

(It is running in screen, which doesn't seem to have scrollback so all I can see of its output is one terminal windows worth at any given moment.)

Have you updated P2Pool recently? Bitcoin/Litecoin changed their protocols on Feb 20. The log is in data/<NET>/log

Yike the logs were over 32 megs, I emptied them in case sheer size of log was causing some of the problems I am seeing.

Git pull claims I am up to date with github.

The other day I saw litecoin has 124 or more connections, and killing it suddenly made my bandwidth stop lagging, so I figured its huge number of connections must be what was throttling my internet connection.

I set maxconnections=8, and it seems that is what has led to p2pool getting disconnected, since it gets 8 outgoing connections and subtracts that from total to see if it can also fit any incoming connections.

None of the other *coin daemons show any signs that the UPNP stuff works, plus in any case getinfo claims its not activated. So I wonder if my bandwidth was mere coincidence and actually my litecoind is not more reachable from the net on its p2p port than any other *coin daemon and maybe p2pool was somehoe those 116 or so incoming connections?

I am trying again now with maxconnections=9

I am also seeing old share over an hour old errors...

2012-02-26 02:31:41.256425 >     raise ValueError('old share an hour after switch time')
2012-02-26 02:31:41.256481 > exceptions.ValueError: old share an hour after switch time

All this is mining litecoins, the merged mining looks fine.
