Since merged mining began on site I've found my system has become unstable when mining btc. Is seems fine on my backup site for mining.

Of course there was big problems with connectivity due to DDoS attacks. Not sure if you counted it. There was also few issues with backends two weeks back when pool started with merged mining, but then I disconnected problematic pools and thanks to recent update of backends, merged mining does not affect mining at all; now it's definitely not an issue. Thanks to my pool monitoring I can tell that now is pool in excellent condition.

Recently you said the whole network is used though for merged mining could this be causing issues for those of us that aren't interested in namecoins? If it is why not offer an opt out from merged mining for those of us that don't wish to mine namecoins?

Merged mining, when done properly, cannot affect "non-namecoin" users. And I'm absolutely sure that merged mining is working great. Technically merged mining is only small patch for bitcoin backend, nothing what you can 'opt out'. If you're not interested in namecoin, it won't affect you at all and you even don't need to know that your hashrate is 'used for merged mining'. However if you claim your namecoin address, you'll get bunch of coins on top of your bitcoin income.

Would it be possible with a further increase in the NMC limit? Just so we can keep it to 1 payment a day? Having a ton of different payments come in during a day is confusing. I realize that you aren't a bank but plz  Grin

Currently that threshold limit is 100NMC. Still not high enough? :-)

Ummm either we've had extreme luck on NMC while the BTC luck has been down or accounting is busted I only got back on fully about 7 rounds ago and well... Let's just say it looks like those extra backends being switched to merged has given a rather dramatic increase  Cheesy

Excuse me if i am wrong but it seems to me extremely unwise to opt out of NMC mining since even if you do, your hash rate is still used to generate NMC so you basically giving your NMC away. It is not that hard to run a namecoind (in a virtual machine if you don't trust the namecoind builds) once to create a wallet to receive the NMC.

You can just put the nmc wallet near your bitcoin wallet backup and forget about it, and one day you can exchange a large bunch of namecoins for bitcoins for some extra income.

I'd like to mention once again, that 'merged mining' isn't stealing of someone's hashrate for mining some alternative weird-currency; merged mining is something like testing submitted shares twice - first time against bitcoin target, then against namecoin target. And people which aren't interested in NMC will earn still the same amount of bitcoins.

Pardon my ignorance of NMC. Where do I get a NMC wallet?

you need to download namecoind, start it, and get some address.
this one is pretty informative

http://www.bluishcoder.co.nz/2011/05/12/namecoin-a-dns-alternative-based-on-bitcoin.html

I don't know what platform you are using, so you google from there Smiley namecoind has a separate wallet from bitcoind. Make sure to not confuse BTC address with NMC, or you will lose your money.

hint: nmc address will always start with N or M.

and of course check this:

I am using guiminer on win7 so I don't think I can use Namecoin at the moment. I created some NMC addresses at bitparking for now and set the payout threshold on slush high. I don't like using online wallets like this, but until I can figure out how to run namecoind.exe on win7, this should suffice.

So am I use the one that says "windows by twobits".  It works fine.

    This website is all about the new namecoin wallet. http://dot-bit.org/Main_Page
    It has a list on the right hand side for different operating systems.
    Version 0.3.24.64 :
            Linux 32bits by Khal
            Linux 64bits by Khal
            Windows by twobits

    I wouldn't go for the earlier downloads, they had some flaws and most of the mining pools will support the new 3.24.64 distro.

    Once you get it installed look at this page http://dot-bit.org/InstallAndConfigureNamecoin
    It has the same caching format as bitcoin, meaning it needs to get all of the blocks before it can payout.  Then you add the namecoin address to your favorite mining pool.[/list]

    Yeah, I tried running the Windows version by twobits. I setup a config file as instructed, but namecoind doesn't seem to work.

      Note: The namecoind file will only open and have a flashing underscorer "_".  You need to open another cmd prompt to type in the configuration, or the "namecoind getinfo" command.  You have to cd to the directory first.  If this is your first time using cd (change directory) then I would research it first.  For instance mine is in a folder on the desktop so I would type "cd \Users\Username\Desktop\NameCoin"
      Then you can type in the namecoind and the other commands (type "namecoind help").

      This thread helped me:
      How to control Namecoind.exe

      Just go to the folder where namecoind.exe is installed and double-click it to run it.  A window will appear with just a blinking cursor. That is namecoind running. Just minimize that window so that it continues to run so you can give it commands from another command prompt window.

      Back out of that folder where namecoind.exe is and shift-right-click on that folder and then choose 'open command window here' from the context menu
      ( or else just open a command prompt in the usual way and navigate to that folder ).

      Now you can give it commands by typing things like (you may need to give it a little bit of time to download the blockchain before giving it commands* ):
      namecoind getinfo
      namecoind help ( to get a full list of the commands... to create addresses... to send namecoins to other addresses etc. etc. )


      *You can check what the latest namecoin block is here:
      http://explorer.dot-bit.org

      And then use that 'namecoind getinfo' command to see if it is uptodate before using other commands.

      Then you can type in the namecoind and the other commands (type "namecoind help").

        Everything he said and;

        If you are able to create a bitcoin.conf file with proper file extension you can do the following;
      In the same directory as your namecoind make a new text file. In it include only the following one line;
      Code:
      cmd

       Now save the file as "namecmd.bat" and in the future when you run namecoind, you will then just run namecmd.bat and already be in the correct directory/prompt to run "namecoind" commands in. Its not much but will make life easier for anyone not accustomed to using cd to a bunch of long name directories.


        Cheers

      There were database problems for a half of a hour, but it didn't affected all hashpower. So it's basically bad luck, but it only balances very good luck right after DDoS attacks, when we found many blocks with really tiny hashpower.

      Also watching only round time isn't good enough, because hashpower (both network and pool) is climbing down, but difficulty is still high. That last 8+ hour round had "only" 7mil shares, which is not extremely bad (however it's still much worse than average).

      I managed to get namecoind to generate an address by redirecting the cmd "bitnamecoind.exe getnewaddress | clip" output to the clipboard. I am looking for documentation of the windows bitcoind syntax.

      Just use 'bitcoind help' to get a list of commands. If thats what you meant.
