Anybody know how to run more than one instance in Linux(without GUI)?

Thanks in advance.

6-core here, how do I run more than one process in Win7?

Thank you

1. protoshares-qt -port=25550 -datadir=<dir1>
2. protoshares-qt -port=25551 -datadir=<dir2>

Replace dir1 and dir2 with the respective data directories.
Then, in each go to debug console and do "setgenerate true 3". Set the affinity of first process to the first 3 cores and the second process to next 3 cores.

Just run the

Code:
setgenerate true [Number of processess]

No need for more than one instance.

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

I'm getting about 100 hashes per minute in total between all my machines, but so far they've only generated 4 stales.

Is the crap in the git messed up?

There's a lot of orphans right now because the difficultly is still low and we're getting new blocks every 30 seconds. This was unexpected and should be considered atypical conditions. This will become much less of an issue after difficulty adjustment at block 4032.

They aren't even orphans though, they're coming up stale.  I'm receiving the blocks, but it's working on the block prior

The latest one happened with 3 cores being used out of 8 on a xeon 1270v3

It's a similar issue - the code only checks for new transactions at the start of the hash, and doesn't interrupt ongoing hashes when new blocks come in. The code is not optimized and not designed to gracefully deal with these conditions.

Yeah, I had forgotten about that.  I've disabled hyperthreading on the machines I could & the rest are just running 4 now.  Don't get a huge performance difference from the hyperthreaded *cores anyway

Can anyone that tested the AWS cluster instance with 32 cores and 60G RAM care to share the results ?
I tested them and got some bad results. With 32 threads memory load is around 24G , but it seems the memory is slow as hell. I couldn't get any instance to hash.

You may have noticed the block difficulty hasn't adjusted as expected at block 2016. I made a mistake with the parameters, and the block difficultly adjustment is set to 2 weeks rather than 1. I've had a quick discussion with ByteMaster, and we've decided the course of action is to leave difficultly adjustment at 2 weeks for now, and consider releasing a patch later to bring the difficulty adjustment back down to 1 week.

What this means is a further 24 hours or so of low-difficulty mining before the difficultly adjusts at block 4032.

I really don't see an issue , Re adjustment. It's untested , so it won't be exposed to anything like possible swings that an sCrypt or SHA256 would.

There is really no problem.

Firstly try to sell them  Undecided.
Everybody wants to sell PTS, but nobody wants to buy. It seems that price 0.01 BTC per PTS is overvalued.

Definitely needs some sort of pool now that team digitalOcean has joined hard.

otherwise this could effect dispersion, and thus in a slight way the principals of the new algorithm.

definitely not a game changer , but a pool wouldn't hurt at this stage.

I ran the client like 15 minutes ago, and it still can't connect to the network.
I'm working on Windows 7, enabled all the firewall exceptions it asked me to, and have never had similar problems with bitcoin-qt / litecoin-qt etc.

I'm just seeing zero peers.

Please do not pm me, use ron@bitcoin.org.il instead

Indeed, where did you pluck this price from?

The price maybe dates back to before the feeding frenzy of the usual pump and dump folks got underway with all the rented by the hour servers and such, likely most miners over the next 20 hours or whatever will be the usual folk who are only here for a quick dump...
