The Monerodo OS from gingeropolous is a customized version of Ubuntu that includes Monero Core, Monero Pool Server, Nvidia mining software, various CPU mining software, and the MiniNodo Wallet server, already preinstalled and is easily configured with a simple text menu interface. Step by step Monerodo OS instructions Alternatively this CryptoNote pool ...

Edit 11/19/2017: another pool mining software has been crowdfunded. Source and instructions can be found here. People with limited linux skills should try Monerodo, which is an ubuntu with a bunch of monero software pre-installed, including a pool software. Otherwise, zone117x node-cryptonote-pool is a crowdfunded open source mining pool software and is ...

Here is the answer when it comes to Bitcoin mining pools. https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/a/10693 TL;DR: The miner will find a valid hash based on the merkle root provided initially by the pool. Once a solution is found, the miner will submit it to the owner. The owner would not be able to change the transactions (to divert the BTC to their own address) ...

Overall The bandwidth usage for running a pool is surprisingly low. Any given month my pool mine.moneroworld.com only has 1-2% utilization of a 2TB allowance. The cost comes in the actual hardware. 10's of users I am currently running mine.moneroworld.com on a 2$ / month VPS with 1 gig of ram and 2 virtual CPUs. (for those that mine there, why do you ...

It is possible to run several nodes, in a load balancing way. I know of at least one pool which does this (crypto-pool.fr). The specifics, however, I can't say. The usual suspects: faster CPU, faster network connection. For the latter, this may come in handy if you end up DDoSed. Unfortunately, there are DDoS campaigns from time to time on pools. Whether ...

With that budget I'd probably build a rig around the following components: AsRock H110 Pro BTC+ (~140€) 6xMSI GTX 1060 GAMING X6G (~360€ each = 2160€ total) One GTX 1060 overclocked using the following settings will be able to sustain about 540 H/s resulting in 3.2 kH/s with very moderate power consumption: Core Clock +200 MHz Memory Clock +800 MHz Power ...

Maybe the easiest would be to go through VPN, although I don't know exact instructions. The amount of traffic shouldn't be much considering what's being transmitted and the frequency of it. Possibly increase your mining difficulty so that your miner doesn't spam solved shares every second (which also reduces efficiency of your mining due to communication ...

"transferFee" should be set to 0, as it's an obsolete setting: the wallet will calculate the fee for this transaction based on its size. "minPayment" is the amount of monero a miner should reach before a payment is made. "denomination" is the granularity of the payment made. That is, payments will be made in multiples of that number (most likely leaving ...

The Redis database constains all the memory of miners' work and balances, found blocks, etc. So losing it would be a bad thing, though not extra bad. Assuming everything got wiped at once, it'd be functionally identical to starting a new pool from scratch, except you already have miners connected and mining. This means mainly three things: the work ...

You can try applying the help-to-your-door patch: https://github.com/moneromooo-monero/bitmonero/tree/cache-block-template It caches block templates, which helps mining pools a lot.

I'm not mining monerpool.com right now but it looks like the server is working. Last block found was just a few minutes ago and payments are being given. How much exactly is your hash rate 7.8 h/s or 7.8 KH/s? If it is h/s it is very low and you may not get anything. How long it has stopped at 0.2 XMR and how long did you get to 0.2XMR? On the other hand if ...

Check your pool logs for "Error submitting block". That's in logs/pool-info.log. If one of those shows up, then a miner found a share matching network difficulty, but the block was rejected. Then check the same log file for "found at height". If you find any, but your pool did not get the block, then the block got orphaned. This may be due to bad luck (...

There is no definite number here... It mostly depends on how lucky you feel ;) If you think that you will be the only miner connected to your pool once you make it public, that will be the equivalent of solo mining then... Depends on your hash rate (and lots of luck), this might or might not be profitable for you. However, every beginning is hard, so once ...

I use a server at home and it is an old Power Edge 2950 (2 x duel quad core Xeons and 32gb RAM). I am running UBUNTU 14.04 LTS and it seems to run the daemon, wallet, and front end via Apache2 pretty well. I haven't had a bunch of traffic on it yet because it is still in the testing phase and it is like pulling teeth finding miners to connect and hash to ...

Running a pool requires a pretty reliable machine. Pi's are fun, but they don't fit the bill. Spend a few bucks a month on a VPS with 2GB of RAM at least and enough disk space to house the Monero blockchain (to run the full-node daemon), and you'll reliably be able to keep a pool up. Who knows, make it public and others might use it too! Also, wouldn't ...

Pools send a new job when they see a new blockchain height, in response to a getjob request, in response to a login request or sending a job to a miner with a new difficulty. prev_id will stay the same so long as the blockchain height is the same. Almost exactly the same job. Each miners job is identical except for the jobs extra field in the blob which ...

Your best bet is to install one of the XMRRig supported pools if you are wanting to test localhost. For large page support, I believe you just need to run the app as an administrator. Information on the XMRRig project page https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig#huge-pages-unavailable


1

With xmrig alone, you can't. You can set up monero-stratum if you would like a really simple solo mining pool. This also requires a daemon, so you won't be mining 'fake' coins unless you joined the testnet or the stagenet.

The email address is used as a login password to manage your payout threshold. Without a login password, anyone knowing your Monero address can manipulate your payout threshold. Some pools also use email address to send you regular hash rate reports or payout notifications. Once you start mining using your email as pool password, and have submitted a few ...

I had this problem and it turned out my blockchain was corrupt. I had to resync monerod to fix it.

CCMINER should work with NP106 models. The only difference is the I/O port is disabled. Have you tested it with CCMINER yet? What errors have you ran into?

Not a good idea as answered here https://www.reddit.com/r/MoneroMining/comments/7lrv3r/starting_a_new_pool_questions_arize/ the Tx fee would eat up 30% of miner profit...

Make sure you have also updated the epools.txt file with your address details. This resolved the error for me.

you should use some AMD sapphire radeon rx 64s because they have just shy of 2kh/s each and only use about 150 watts per card for mining. I do agree with the motherboard though because it has the ability to reinvest and hold up to 13 gpus!

You could use the stunnel program to do that (https://www.stunnel.org). It waits for incoming SSL/TLS connections and redirects the decrypted data streams to a local port (e.g. a server that doesn't support SSL/TLS on its own).
