So, I've checked the pools out.

unitedminers seems to have flaky at best performance, there's something wrong on their side (lots of network timeouts and such). Not much I can do about that.

BitcoinPool works for me with the exact same .cfg from the archive, are you sure you haven't changed/deleted something by accident?

btcserv have changed their hash rate display from MHash/s to GHash/s, here is the new .cfg (will be added to the archive but just copy-paste the content for the time being):
Code:
;BTCSERV
;Home Page: http:/btcserv.net
Type=PROP
Host=btcserv.net
Port=8335
JSON=http://btcserv.net
HashEx1=</span>[ \.0-9]+GHash/s <span>
HashEx2=[ \.0-9]+
HashRemove=
SharesEx1=</span>[ ,0-9]+shares <span>
SharesEx2=[ ,0-9]+
SharesRemove= ,
Div=1

hey,

i am the operator of btcserv.net and wanted to let you know that now json stats are available @ http://btcserv.net/json/pool/ .. would be cool if dev team could update/add whatever necessary so the data is fetched from there.

greetings.

Is anyone else having trouble with poolmunity?  It has been getting the lagging/time-out error for me.

I wouldn't even bother with poolmunity... The owner sent out an email saying he was closing the pool on the 1st of September since he wasn't getting any traffic.

@wtfman Sorry for posting the web scrape cfg, it was late at night when I wrote that post and accidentally opened the wrong one. So, everyone can safely use the JSON .cfg for btcserv, it's in the archive and should work fine. Remember to NOT have both of them active in CherryPicking, they are provided as alternative options.

You need 1 PPS pool for proper operation. Good hopping is not guaranteed if you do not have at least 1 PPS pool.

Ok, I will add ars back in.

What would the cfg be for this pool?

http://simplecoin.us/index.php

Thanks.

EDIT:

So I have been running CP for about 7 days now, and it seems like I have only made about 3 - 3.5 BTC on 950-1000 MHash/s.  That seems low to me.  What am I doing wrong/What are other people making with that speed?

Have you been running without a PPS/BACKUP pool for that week? That could definitely decrease efficiency. If not, have a look through the logs/stats to see if there were invalid hops or something. Also, what hopping algorithm are you using?

I think running without a pps pool is what hurt you the most. This last week 1 ghash/s gave me an average of .65 btc per day or 4.5 for the week

Running normal algorithm and I started with ars, but thought it would be better taking it out, didn't realize it is good to have.  But do I have to actually type in BACKUP somewhere?  In my pool.cfg it just list all the pools I want it to use is all.  And I haven't changed the pool types in each individual pool cfg file either.

EDIT:

I have had ABC pool in there the whole time, and I just realized they are PPS too.  I have a long list of pools I am using, I thought the more the better...

* Hey Bloodred or anyone that knows a bit more about this stuff, can you take a look at this to make sure its right...  I hacked together a .cfg for http://swepool.net which is another PROP pool. In order to use this one you need to get your own api key from the swepool settings page and replace the "user_api_key" with your personal key. No guarantees on this but it seems to work. 


Code:
;Swepool
Type=PROP
Host=swepool.net
Port=8337
JSON=http://swepool.net/json?key=user_api_key
HashEx1="pool_speed":"\d+\.?\d*
HashEx2=\d+\.?\d*
SharesEx1="round_shares":"\d+
SharesEx2=\d+
Div=1
Miner=

It's working properly if you're getting the valid hash rate and round shares in CP, that's about it. Wink

So, I have some Linux news. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop today (GeForce GT240M GPU) and got everything set up to give CherryPicking a test. Much to my surprise, CherryPicking works on Linux with no special changes, the exact same .jar that everybody uses on Windows and the latest poclbm from github and nothing weird in the .cfgs.

Since I suck at Linux I do not know how to get the NVIDIA GPU usage, but I managed to get the temperature before (46C) and after starting CherryPicking (65C) and I can see that poclbm is using 100% CPU in the System Monitor, here's a screenshot of that:

Note that there are no share accepted messages in CherryPicking because the GPU is very, very slow and manages only around 8.7MH/s, so it'd take quite a while to actually get a share and I only ran this for a few minutes before posting this here.

There IS however a bug, when you type "exit" to quit CherryPicking it starts throwing exceptions endlessly and you have to stop it with Ctrl+C, but other than that it seems to be working. This is just a quick test though, I'm not saying that CP has perfect compatibility just yet.

The popular version of Linus here seems to be LINUXCOIN. I have been using Linuxcoin now because I cannot get windows 7 to work with all 7 of my gpu's, but linuxcoin is perfect, but i have not been using cherry.

Blood where can I get the complete files to try running everything on linuxcoin? My linux skills are horrible but I can probably figure it out...jut need the CP files...

Well you don't need any special files. They're the same as the Windows version, just use those. The .cfgs work in exactly the same way and the .jar is the same as well. To run it navigate to its directory and type
Code:
java -jar CherryPicking.jar
If you want stats and logging use
Code:
java -jar CherryPicking.jar -logging -stats

Anyway, here's what I did from start to finish:
1) Installed the JRE (well JDK in my case, but you don't need the development kit to run CP)
2) Followed the guide here to get poclbm installed. You do not need to install bitcoin, that's just for solo mining. I also skipped the step regarding python-jsonrpc because the server seems to be down, but everything worked without me doing that, so I guess it was already installed or something. So now I have poclbm in my home directory (~/poclbm).
3) Extracted CherryPicking in a directory of the same name in my home folder (so ~/CherryPicking)
4) Set the path to poclbm, poclbm.py in this case. So in poclbm.cfg I have Path=/home/bloodred/poclbm/poclbm.py
5) Configure all the pools, just like on Windows. I only used eligius for testing purposes so I didn't waste time on adding lots of pools
6) Run CherryPicking and it worked.

I'm on it. here are the steps I vave done so far.

1. Go here and download the right version of Ubuntu. I first tried with the 32 bit but kept getting errors, so downloaded the 64 bit version.
2. I wanted to install this on a USB key, so went here http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/ and downloaded the tool and ran it. I used an 8 gig key, so left myself 4 gigs persistance.
3. Plugged the usb key into my mining machine and booted from the usb key.
4. Ubuntu seems to be up and running now to install ATI drivers.

Stay Tuned...
