Over the next week or two, I am testing some new mining pool software.  If you can spare a miner for an hour or day or three, testing is greatly appreciated.

Worker registration and basic pool details at http://pool.yyz.us/register.html

This is alpha quality software right now -- still have not found a single block.  Payments are made on a best effort basis; this is brand new software and bugs are guaranteed.  The server will go up and down as software updates are applied, so don't be surprised if you occasionally see connection errors.

Please send bug reports and other feedback to jgarzik@gmail.com.  Thanks!

I registered a worker and found a share, so that part works. Having a statistics page would be nice, but I suppose that's already on the todo list.

In the name of science I fired up my GPU and connected to the pool. I'm not sure if it's connected properly but I have a hash rate so something must be going right.

edit: I'm getting "accepted" messages so it looks like its doing things just fine.

A quick status update:

Initial testing seems to show the pool database working correctly.  Shares are being found, and correctly being credited to workers.

Still waiting on that first found block (and associated code), so more test workers are still wanted!

I should have a stats page up in 24-48 hours.  Thanks to everyone participating in this test.

I get "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC" errors after a short while. Does it mean that you restarted the pool, or is it something else ?

The pool will probably see many restarts in the first 24-48 hours of its lifetime.

Additionally, I am currently using python's BaseHTTPServer, which seems to sometimes pause for several seconds before giving up on a socket, and processing more.  As soon as this is turned into a multi-threaded server, that should not be a problem anymore.

Any chances of an open source pool?

The pool server was upgraded to a more robust multi-threaded model, which I'm hoping solves some of the timeout issues reported.

Email (or post here) any questions or issues.  Still searching for that first block, so the payout code has not yet been exercised.  If you can spare some GPU/CPU power for testing this pool, it is appreciated.

Right now the pool is around 9 getwork/second.

Stats are definitely on the todo list.

I have added 1 thread on a 2.6GHz i7 -- about 1k hash/second.

The pool found its first block last night, block # 105839.

Now that a block is in the database, work on statistics may commence.

Yes, still running with plenty of miners attached.

I would very much be interested in this!
I'm trying to setup a mining pool for me and my friends who've I've converted to bitcoin!

Where does one get started on writing a pooled server? Considering coding in any language is allready known. (c/c++ are preferred)

^_^

This is GPL'd: http://yyz.us/bitcoin/poold.py

Though it's not necessarily exactly what I'm running on the pool at any given time, as I'm constantly tweaking and fixing the server.
