Hello All,

I post this same question like once a week in hopes someone (perhaps Dekbit) will reply Sad

does anybody have any experience with mining via RPC to the bitcoind service? i'm used both poclbm/poclbm-mod/phoenix all report differently regarding "shares" accpeted and calculated hash returned... I'm examined raw data flow between miners and mining server (bitcoind) and can attest that all are solving hashs, but somthing seems to be up... if you've worked with the bitcoind service please reply to this thread Sad

...i hate the fact that (while clearly not a noobe) i cant post to correct section of forum, i have valuable insight to contribute as well -should any mods come across this post, i would much appreciate you removing my inabilities to post in all forum sections.

regards,

J

you're talking about solo mining, right? because they're no shares in solo mining.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

i am talking about solo mining, as my post details... bitcoind is the native clients used for checking/solving hashs created by the various mining clients. while the term "share" may not be 100% accurate, a "getwork" is much the same...

thanks for your insightful reply...

bitcoind gives the miner a merkle root to work with, along with a target, and the miner checks through all the nonces, if none of the nonces result in a hash lower than the target, it asks for more. if it finds a nonce that is lower than the target, it submits the nonce to bitcoind, and it's broadcasted to the network.

in solo mining, as i said, there are no "shares". you either get a block or not. but some miners count imaginary "shares" when solo mining. where a imaginary share is a nonce that meets difficulty of 1.

Thank you for your reply Grue. I'm thinking the mining software i'm using (phoenix) does not use "imaginary" shares, while poclbm/poclbm-mod does... thus giving me different feedback via the console.

Is there any additional reporting capabilities to bitcoind besides the "getinfo" switch?

...bitcoind getinfo also reports "hashspersec" = 0, which i can attest via rawcaptures and the f'd up reporting behavior of poclbm is not true Smiley


again, thanks for your replies,

J
