I've been getting great peaks and troughs in my proportion of "dead on arrival" shares. Been seeing anywhere from 0.4% to 25.8% (!) over the course of the day...

I'm still ahead of the network average stale rate though, at least according to p2pool Grin

Anyone been experiencing anything similar?

Locally mine have been the same all week:

http://p2pool.hopto.org:9332/static/graphs.html

But I can see many others have been having trouble.. the graph shows the pool stale rate way up and lots of old clients keep trying to connect to me. Amazingly some major pools didn't upgrade it seems, like 50BTC, and they are generating multiple orphan forks and that is messing things up too. I think until this week multiple block orphans were quite rare.. now there are a bunch:

http://blockchain.info/orphaned-blocks

I'm not sure what advice to offer though.. other than double check you are running the latest bitcoin and maybe open up its port so it can connect to lots of nodes. If you only have a few connections, and they are all to old bitcoin clients that could be bad for you.

My node (Gyver's pool in London UK) supports BIP16 (in fact it will supports whatever forrestv's master branch of p2pool supports as it automatically updates itself when it's needed).

P2pool tuning guide
Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

I started making this html page to check on the stats of various servers.. if there is interest I can improve it a bit more I'm sure. It can be hosted or viewed anywhere.. just save the page to your own machine.

can anyone confirm the fee being paid?

have had several payouts now, I have a guest using my p2pool, plus me using a different address on my miners (as if I was also a guest), and haven't seen a satoshi yet.

It is probability based, if your fee is 1%, one out of every 100 shares will go to the pool op.

can anyone confirm the fee being paid?

As indicated above the fee is in the form of "free shares" to the operators address.

To test:
1) use the -a option to set a static address which is a good idea anyways (use a new address to get a 0 balance on shares)
2) Don't mine under operator account
3) Set a high fee (something like 20%) and mine as a guest on your test instance
4) You should see the guest avg revenue decline by 20% and you should see ~20% of the shares being added to the address in #1.

So, how are the public pools doing? Are miners taking advantage of these public pools?

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

I had someone with 200MH mine for a day or so.  In general, it's just my worker though.

I had someone on mine for around a week or so. Trickle hashing most of the time, keeping me as a backup, tho he set me as his primary for a couple days.

We had excellent latency, being on the same network, but variance was the main factor for going back to his other pool, I'm told.

Am hoping the improvements in the graphs will help out, making it easier to see what the 'global' (for my p2pool) and per-miner payouts are. Otherwise, all people will see, are what my own miners are doing, and since I mine to a different address than the default bitcoind login, my payout always shows 0. Smiley

It did seem to work well.

edit: might be useful to set each other up as backup pools, so when we're updating our p2pool or whatever, are miners just switch over to someone else's p2pool for a while Smiley

I've started updating my p2pool with virtually zero downtime

1) I have p2pool running in screen (although I really need/want to learn tmux)
2) I open another window and 'git pull'
3) I run p2pool in my new window (while it is still running in the old)
4) The updated p2pool loads all of the shares and then gives warnings about the ports already being taken
5) I switch to the first screen window and close the now outdated p2pool
6) The updated p2pool sees the ports are now free and grabs them while my miner notices only a momentary problem if any at all.

yeah, but that's when the process happens without a hitch Smiley

I'm thinking more for those unforseen problems with more downtime

like when my cat steps on the power switch of my UPS on the computer p2pool is running on Cheesy (which I'm starting to think he does intentionally)

@Red Emerald  - I was wondering if that were possible to run both and switch off to the newer one, now I know it is.  Smiley

It's good to see people performing a public service.  Smiley

Very true. There are lots of reasons for downtime. I had bitcoind crash once. p2pool stayed up and my miner stayed connected because it thought the pool was responding Sad

We need some sort of bitcoind_check script that runs on cron every 5 minutes or so to make sure bitcoind hasn't died.

I had someone mine for like 5 minutes a few weeks ago but other than that no one has been here from what I've seen.
