Out of curiosity... how is MINT handling its age? Is the blockchain bloat causing any problems? How disk space does it consume? How much memory? CPU?

My Uncompressed current version datadir size is ~3.5GB, the compressed blockchain dat is ~1.2GB. CPU usage was improved a bit as well. Memory usage still remains high, though over the past year's worth of blocks it hasn't increased much.

Interesting, I would have expected the load to have increased much more. Maybe some of the changes you folks have made have helped slow down the memory usage creep.
Last I checked on my windows wallet, it was using about 1.2GB of RAM on my laptop . CPU usage is pretty much the same as it always has been about 20-40% of my quad core 1.40GHz AMD processor. Blockchain is only 2GB file.

Derek,

Presstab was talking about the new client currently in testing, well that's the results fuzzbawls provided them for anyways... there are some changes in the work that will lower the size for the blockchain so a lot of positive in the works, we just focusing on working through the bugs we find.

My main question and concern is the RAM usage. Why is it so high and steadily keeps rising? I'd like to know what causes it. Any ideas what could be done to calm that down?

Hello Derek,

RAM usage is high due to all the data being read constantly, while we could offload some of the data being accessed to disk, that would just cause disk I/O to go up and the trade off isn't really worth it in our eyes, although that isn't to rule anything out, we will continue to evaluate the situation and make improvements where we can.

Seems like it's going up at a pace of 500MB per year. I suppose that's not too bad; this could be worse.  But at this rate, in 30 years that would put us at about 15GB of RAM though lol. Not sure if this is a real problem considering most good new computers already have that much RAM. I guess if we have the ability to offload it if needed, then that's good. Could we make multiple wallet versions, like a low RAM version for people that may not much to spare? Just curious.

Does Mintcoin have any future plans in the works? I have a few thousand mints that I just found in an old wallet haven't sold wanna keep them and start minting them if there's any future for Mint

We're working on a number of projects at the moment:
Proposed revisions/changes to the existing line of desktop wallets (https://github.com/MintcoinCommunity/MintCoin-Docs/blob/master/Wallets/2.0-Proposed_Revisions.md).
Physical trading card game in which some cards act as paper wallets (http://mintymintcoin.com/MintCards.html)
Also the long project of overhauling desktop wallets completely (details forthcoming)
Thank you very much for replying.. also good to hear mint is still being worked on, very interesting physical trading card game acting as paper wallet sounds interesting. Will wait for the details for desktop wallets

Is it all official now? MINT is complete now at 5% per year and everything is going to be constant at this rate; smooth sailing from here on out; no more rate changes?
This is important to know for the future for planning and for economic reasons.
(I am in talks with a top- credentialed Austrian school economist). I will let you know more soon. Smiley

Right, but that would require hard forking. Correct?

The purpose of this video is to document the BURN or absolute destruction of Mint Lotus Alpha cards so existing cards become more rare.

A day or so ago I noticed my wallet stopped updating and so I figured I would see if the wallet needed repair. It did, so I did many clicks (20 mins or so worth) and it finally passed test.  I checked an hour or so ago and the last update was 1 day ago <last=  3,194,146, with 6 peers connected atm. After another 15 minutes of constant clicking the wallet still does not pass.  There is no delectable reading of the hard drive (console monitor), but 3 processes are each writing ~1mbps. 

MY peer count has always been single digit... wonde rif I am off in a bad group or something.. for sure hundreds of repair wallet claick shoud not be needed...
 Any help?

Tx in advance

sounds like you're off on a fork. Block #3,194,146 was certainly not just one day ago (happened on the 15th) http://www.fuzzbawls.pw/explore/MintCoin/block.php?height=3194146

compare some of your block hashes with the explorer, if they don't match you'll need to resync. Also make sure you're running v2.0.2.
