From reading this thread, I get the impression that running a merged p2pool requires quite a bit more Internet bandwidth than solo mining. Does anybody have a ballpark figure for the bandwidth requirements? Is it in the range of kbps/sec, Mbps/sec? I'm thinking of setting this up, but I don't want it to hog my bandwidth or cause me to hit my ISP's bandwidth cap.

Mine was doing about 40kB/s, BTC and NMC.   There's very little bandwidth required.

Thanks! Is that 40kB/s sustained? That seems like a lot in the course of a month, by my math: 40k * 60 * 60 * 24 * 30 = 103,680,000k/month. That's almost half my ISP's bandwidth cap.   Sad  But maybe I'm miscalculating?

Pretty much - you can look at any P2Pool's stats page, there's a graph for bandwidth right there.

WANTED: Active dev to fix & re-write p2pool in C

Hey guys,

Need a little advice here. I upgraded to the latest namecoin-qt client a few weeks ago, but since I did I've not had any merged mine payments into the wallet. I had a few problems getting the updated client compiled & running, resulting in me somehow loosing all but one of my receive addresses (don't ask me how I managed to do that  Huh) I created another receive address & called it "p2pool" hoping that would make a difference - but no - still no payments. I get absolutely no errors in p2pool and frequently get 5 x "got new merged mining work" for the 5 coins I'm mining, plus the btc one of course.

Is there any way to check that p2pool is recognising the wallet address it's supposed to be paying into? If so, could someone tell me how to check this?

Thanks people  Grin

Edit: or is it just an extraordinarily long bad luck streak?  Roll Eyes

Well, if it's any help, I've not had a payment in a week or so, I'm using the latest namecoin-qt on Windows.  My p2pool is saying it's getting merged mining work OK. 

I wonder now that BTCGuild and Eligius are doing NMC merged mining, is p2pool not finding so many blocks?  Those two big pools must be finding lots of blocks?

Before I give this all a try could someone tell me if this is still the best and most up to date P2Pool guide?

I plan on making a BTC/NMC/DVC/IXC/I0C p2pool just for a few friends.

Thanks,

It's not the most up to date, you'll have to find the latest versions of some of the wallets yourself as the git links have changed on a few of them, but it is the best guide. You can also add Groupcoin (GRP) to the mix if you like, if you're using Linux that is.

Think I finally have everything running, the bitcoin side certainly works but not so sure about the merged-mining. Any wait to test it?

You'll see "Got Merged Mining Work!" in the P2Pool console.  If you're getting that, it's working.  Then just wait for your payouts...

I did the screen command so i dont see any console. Is there a command I can use to bring up the p2pool console?

if you have no other screens running "screen -r" will connect you to the p2pool screen
To leave the screen and return to the main console press "ctl  a + d"

i think he's looking for like the website info?  "p2pool console"?

127.0.0.1:9332?

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).
