It'd be nice if all the servers could be pinged also. I've tried pinging all the servers in this topic, but a few couldn't be reached. So far P2PMining.com is still the best for me at ~60ms.

http://p2pmining.com/ does more than most of the pools here.  He has built his pool with a special front end to pay based on diff 1 shares. This is probably a good choice for people with small rigs.  He also pays out Namecoin.

Most of the people here (including me) just have ports open to the normal p2pool.

I just setup my firewall to respond to pings.

http://just-ping.com is good for this kind of thing.

For example, mine's pretty decent all over europe but typically >100ms to the US:
http://just-ping.com/index.php?vh=195.234.11.101&c=&s=ping

There are a lot of dead servers in this topic though...
Running ping from your miner is probably the best idea since that is what you will actually be getting.

However, the server might not be setup to respond to pings. Mine wasn't until just now.  We need a script to time an http request to the pool for more accurate results.

I'll fix the ping issue in a little bit for that specific IP.

So it looks like only one of the listed servers is down.

I made a quick python script to check all of the servers and then sort them by average response time.

Obviously, my pool has a very low ping time since it is local.

Just thinking out loud. Public node advertising could be built into p2pool. Maybe if a flag is set, the client will join a special IRC channel.  Then a simple client could be written to look at all the nodes in that channel and connect to one.  Maybe the nodes could advertise fees, uptime, if they have merged mining, etc.  It could at least be a nice way to setup a backup pool.

EDIT: So I just realized my script does not distinguish between bitcoin and litecoin pools? I'll add that now. Done

Using your prog I get the same results, with ping in terminal I get 4 unanswered results, while ping in terminal shows thirdlight as up.
Code:
--- thirdlight.dynalias.com ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss,

I don't know why there is this discrepancy between the two tool results or which should be used to update the OP with. Are both results valid? Any Suggestions?

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.

Was down when Red Emerald tested, was up again when check_status checked, ahem, the status. Please disregard that discrepancy.

My script checks the response time to actually fetch work.  If this works, the pool is up.  If it doesn't work, the pool is down.

Pinging from the command line is just checking network latency.  If this works, the server p2pool runs on is up.  If it doesn't work, the pool might be on or off.  For example, my firewall used to block pings while letting p2pool traffic through.

tl;dr My script is more accurate than a simple ping.

Hi,

I've added graphs to my entry point, you need to use the bitcoin address for payments as username and graph as password to be able to see your worker/s at

spiccioli.

Anyone mind testing my BTC node? I am still building my first rig and I noticed lot of dead share on my p2pool local graph. I dunno if his miner is misconfigured or if the problem is  on my side.

Thank's!

So, who's seen extra hashes out of this thread?

I'm pointing 1 5830 at my node and getting 700-900Mh/s, so it's getting at least some use finally  Tongue

I've got my pool actually passing out payments again.
I guess the problem was me only having 12Mhash/s to play with. xD

Also, we've got some of the best pings for USA hashers.

When I first announced my public p2pool node (back in February), someone mined on it for like 6 hours.  I haven't had any activity since then.

You may remove my LTC pool from the list ( http://litep2pool.sytes.net:9327/ ). No interest from users with it so I see no reason of running it.

Just wondered what could help someone decide which pool is the best. Inserting the local rate for last month can show :
  • if the pool is currently up (graph is shown)
  • if it had downtimes in the recent past (mine was down ~3 weeks ago for some hours and it shows on the graph as a gap)
  • if it's used regularly (which make it more likely to be maintained)
I hope I didn't mistype anything as some nodes seem down: graphs don't show. The ones I checked were indeed down. I don't do fancy markup so feel free to improve on the idea. Currently it's just a 2 column table with images in the right column as I'm too lazy to look for any additional markup options Smiley

Edit: updated with flower1024's pool and separated LTC and BTC to make it easier to find a pool suited to someone's needs, replace :: by space to separate location and other info (help fit the info on small screens by breaking long lines)

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

Apologies, mine has been down for most of today due to this deeply unusual error (any help much appreciated) which keeps crashing the server at seemingly random intervals.



Right now I'm in the middle of a full reinstall of bitcoin 0.60 rc4 (+ blockchain) and p2pool.
I'll pm you once I get the server back online - shame really, I peaked at around 4.1Gh/s the other day...

Check your bitcoin.conf, it seems like there maybe some errors there.
