I like this tool. It is great. With bitminter the store DB stats does not work. But for the rest it is great.
Same for me. I can't store DB stats or MPoolMonitor gives me "PJ:API ERROR".

do you have the x64 version of office or x86 (32-bit)?  I'm pretty sure it doesn't work properly with 64-bit access.

eheh... The Insurance Company where I work and tried the MPoolMiner has banned Microsoft Office. We use  LibreOffice.

I don't know what'll happen if you don't have access on your computer.  I assumed it would work... but apparently not.  I'll have to fire it up in a VM w/o office to see how it behaves.

I intend to release a new version of MPoolMonitor soon. 

Things already done:
- bunch of little bug fixes like it requiring you to save the config every time you start it if only BTCGuild is enabled
- changed to support to the 50BTC API changes and hashrate problems

Things I intend to do:
- remove the taskbar popup on block found logic.  it was only there for a few pools, and no one seemed to notice.
- add support for multipool
- add support for scryptguild
- add support for eligius
- add support for the API that all the "pool out of a box" scrypt pools are using (I assume it's the same for them all)
- add support for the blockchain.info stats API to show some close to realtime BTC data

Things I may do:
- see if I can get the DB stats code to be more friendly with different versions of office
- revise the idle worker notification code to work with more mail servers

Support for the additional pools with come with incremental versions, instead of all at once.

I will also probably post the code to github.

I've reviewed the posts here to see if I'm missing anything.  I saw a request or two for support of a pool.  If it's a small BTC pool, it's probably not worth my trouble, as few users will be using it.  In the age of absurd difficulty, and absurd increases in difficulty, I don't see this little pools lasting or them having a lot of users.

Is there anything I'm missing?  Any reasonable requests?

I just published v2.9, see op post for new screenshot and link.

Changes:

v2.9
- fixed problem with it not autostarting when BTCGuild is only one enabled
- 50btc works again.  apparently the API radically changed since I originally added support
- removed the popup on new block found option.  it was only enabled for some pools, and no one seemed to notice, so I assume it's not used.
- fixed problem with btcguild hash rate not showing on the tooltip icon
- fixed problem with slush hash rate not showing on the tooltip icon
- added support for multipool
- fixed problem with BTCGuild hashrate showing 1000 times smaller than it is
- added a Scrypt total hashrate separate from SHA256 total hashrate
- added a checkbox to the p2pool config to indicate it's a Scrypt pool instead of a SHA256 pool
- added the pending namecoin (NMC) stat to the BTCGuild output

I just released version 3.0. 

Changes in v3.0:
- added support for blockchain.info stats
- lots of internal changes to make it easier to add more pools
- fixed a minor problem with a parsing routine for Eclipse



Notes on the blockchain.info addition:

- I'm not sure how accurate the "estimated next difficulty" is.  That stat doesn't seem to be available from blockchain.info, so I derive it based on the avg number of minutes currently to solve to block.  Assuming that avg is accurate (it is a blockchain.info stat), and I don't have any rounding errors (I think it's as precise as I can get it), this estimate should be good.  I'll find out next difficulty change.
- You can configure it to refresh a minimum of once an hour, all the way up to every 24 hours.

Next up on the to do list is adding support for Scryptguild.

Version 3.1 is now released.

Changes:
- more internal changes to make it easier to add more pools
- upgraded to v6.0r1 of the JSON.net library to handle a parsing error that could occur with p2pool
- added support for ScryptGuild
- fixed a problem with BTC Guild payout info not being properly recorded to the database
- added a "bad" column to the worker listing for BTC Guild indicating the percentage of non valid shares

Note that there's a new "idle worker popup notification" config checkbox.  That functionality didn't make the cut for this version.

Next up: Eligius.

Update on source code availability:

I've created a repo on GitHub, but am having a learning curve issue when using it.  So far it looks like I could have another pool added to the app in the time it takes me to figure out how to use GitHub, so this may not happen soon.

In the meantime, if someone would like a copy of the code for their perusal and local use (not distribution), please PM me.

Donation sent.  It's a handy utility.

Suggestions:

Payable BTC value should be a little more prominent, and in the same place on the screen for each relevant pool, while the user's hash rate does not need to be so prominent (perhaps BTC on the left and hash rate on the right of the same line and in the same size font);  the BTC line could then be omitted from the list in the ScryptGuild balance tab;

Make the default refresh time 5 minutes - this would reduce the user's bandwidth and the server load, and should be perfectly adequate for most users, who could still vary it if they felt the need;

Neither the column containing the pointer nor the highlighting appear to serve any useful purpose;

Put the download link in your signature.

Believe it or not, I did try to be consistent across pools.  The problem is there is no consistency in the output from the pools. Smiley

I like the idea making the BTC value more prominent.  I think I'll change the label color at minimum.

BTW, I think you're a version or two behind right now.  For ScryptGuild, the confirmed BTC now has it's own spot to the right of the hash rate.

The user hash rate is prominent because it'll be your first clue there is something wrong if there is something wrong.

I actually changed that this prior version, and the minimum is now 5.  Good idea. Smiley

That's default grid functionality.  You're right, though, I could save some real estate by removing the selection column.  Thanks!

I've considered that.

MPoolMonitor won't check more often than every 60 seconds, but it's possible between your clock and the pool clock that the pool is slapping your hands when it shouldn't.
There's another possibility: I have just noticed that MPoolMonitor stays running in the background if the display is closed down.  If you restart it, a new instance runs, but the old one keeps going.  I currently have three running, as I haven't yet rebooted the pc or killed the processes with Task Manager.  It seems feasible, then, that one is trying to access the data within 60 seconds of another, resulting in the pool having a hissy fit.

(Sorry for resurrecting a rather old thread!)

Aha.  I guess if you aren't aware it runs in your "notification bar" when you minimize it, then yes, you could end up with multiple instances running.  To close "Close" it, right click anywhere on it and click exit.

I'll add a check to the startup to see if it's already running somewhere else.

Thanks.

The window closes and the icon disappears from the taskbar when the X is clicked, but it remains in the system tray (in the Hidden Icons section, so not normally visible, which is where I found them).  Perhaps "Minimise on X" would work, as that would leave it on the taskbar.
