my hp5 win 8 64 qt clients were crashing on open (since diff 9 maybe) when I upgraded to hp6 it would still crash right away, but I had sievesize at 4000000 in conf; removed that (or set to 1M) and it runs and mines just fine on all machines.  would like to know good settings.

Nothing found since hp6, and using 2 i7 laptops running ~4kpps (300-840 5-chains/h) each on same wallet

Lately it's just trickle, like one every other day if lucky:

2013-07-20T23:46:31   Mined   12.34
2013-07-20T08:33:30   Mined   12.35
2013-07-18T04:36:15   Mined   12.52
2013-07-16T10:59:58   Mined   12.54
2013-07-15T21:51:30   Mined   12.62
2013-07-15T21:46:54   Mined   12.62
2013-07-15T19:59:33   Mined   12.65
2013-07-15T05:53:27   Mined   12.80
2013-07-14T11:52:08   Mined   13.47
2013-07-14T07:52:02   Mined   14.08

sievepercentage=1
sievesize=1000000

with sievepercentage=1,  I got biggest PPS and more chainspermin. Is it good?

Good question.. can anyone attest to this?

Increased PPS 1K-2K. Did not increase CPM for me (i7 860 @ 3.22 quad). 0 blocks 12 hrs.

Edit : Tried on testnet, it was the worst results I've seen yet. 1 block in 5 min, gave up.

Other notes (updating) ...
sieve% above 15 crashes client on testnet as soon as mining starts.

SS : 4000000 S% : 15% = 3 BPM
SS : 4000000 S% : 14% = 40 CPM, 6600 PPS, 3+ BPM  <-- sweet spot so far. Ended up beating best HP5 setting by a little after 10 min. Does not work on mainnet for me.
SS : 4000000 S% : 13% = 2.3 BPM
SS : 4000000 S% : 11% = 37 CPM, 6800 PPS, 2.6 BPM
SS : 2000000 S% : 14% = 36 CPM, 7284 PPS, 2.0 BPM  Works on mainnet @ 1849 PPS, 12 CPM (highest I've seen so far).
SS : 2200000 S% : 14% = 44 CPM, 7079 PPS, 2.1 BPM  Works on mainnet @ 1835, 10 CPM (highest so far)

Over a longer period of time the above settings may equal out. 15% gave block spurts of 4-6 @ a time, while 14% gave steady blocks over entire time and "appeared" faster due to this lack of stalls between blocks.

Update : Once again settings that work fine on testnet shut down the client immediately upon mining.  It's the 4M setting which works fine for HP5. I'm going to try to find the max sievesize for my i7 again since it appears to be lower for HP6 than HP5 (is this due to the higher difficulty or difference in builds?). Update 2 : The highest sievesize I can get on mainnet (i7 quad) is 2200000.

Observation : Higher sievesize settings always increased blocks per minute in HP5 & HP6. Adjusting sieve% also affected BPM's and it has sweet spots as you can see above. I recommend finding the highest sievesize first (that will work on  mainnet for you), then adjust sieve% for best results (on testnet) to find your sweet spot. Anything above 2200000 would shut the client down immediately in HP6 (for my i7 quad).

Since it appears (to me at least) that a larger sievesize increases BPM's, I will mention that HP3 gave 2 BPM (in 10 min runs) on testnet with SS : 6553600 and this will work on mainnet. However, I'm not positive that large of a sievesize was even supported in HP3 and it may be going to a default setting. However, with that in mind I set the sievesize to the default and results were much worse.

What are you running at DO ? With the 10$ droplets I get 600pps (sievesize=1M, sieve%age=8) which will not pay for itself mining.
I think vps mining was good last weeks but not anymore. Maybe amazon EC2 with high cpu option but those cost quite a lot !

I think no one will share what they use...many say private vps provider and that's about it, so they can keep getting 40 blocks per day.

I'm curious  Smiley
How much blocks per day are you doing on average with that cluster?

I've been consistently finding blocks once per day with my Core 2 Quad 9400 OC'ed to 3.5GHz on the second windows client.  My pps is usually around 2500, so I'm either very lucky or something is wrong on your end. 

Which build are you using, HP5?  If so, mind sharing your settings?

That 3200$ per month, are you sure you'll mine enough xpm with 100k pps to just get even ?

I did last week, made a killing. However I'm looking for a different VPS alternative because after the latest diff update this will no longer be profitable.

I'm thinking about switching to EC2. Anyone using them?

i have stopped it, because if the price drops - profit => lost with the long time the blocks need to mature im out!

but here are some stats:
Code:
-----   Mon Jul 22 19:24:42 CEST 2013   -----
------------      PRIMECOIN      ------------
20 Units - 16 Hours unit ~= 96 $ @30c /H*Unit
----    180544  PrimesPerSec
----     29460  5-chains
---------------------------------------------
Immature: 12 - Orphans: 0 => ~ 142 XPM
Blocks: 78175 - Difficulty: 9.22064346
Node Connections: 269
---------------------------------------------

so running 20 x cc2.8xlarge (0.25-0.28 each), 16 hours long => 12 blocks (aprox. 142 XPM)
with about 9000 pps or 1500 5-chains per cc2.8xlarge its "profitable", BUT you have to wait over a day until the blocks mature, sooo 30 % profit is not enough for taking the risk in my oppinion.
