Do we have Windows version already for 1090f? If you are too busy I can try compile it myself.
Thank you very much

Sorry, I did compile it but it appears to be buggy, there is something going on in testnet that is emitting huge logs.  So I cant release it.
It looks like the best thing to do if you can is build it on *nix for now.   Later today once we resolve this, Ill rebuild win again.  (The current windows release - that is out there now - is not good for testnet btw).

Ok, I think one nice thing about the PoDC is that we will reduce the number of VPS servers (which were really efficient at PoBH mining). Although I personally used vps to mine PoBH, I think in the long term it is better to rely on physical machines.

So a few stats

Physical server: Dell Power Edge: Xeon(R) CPU E5335 @ 2.00GHz, Quad Core:
                             On PoBH was getting HPS roughly 1000
                              On Rosetta, RAC = roughly 800

Vultr server: 1 cpu (not sure make model etc)
                            On PoBH was getting roughly 700 HPS
                            On Rosetta, RAC = roughly 350.


So the vps was ~70% of the physical server on PoBH, but ~45% on Rosetta.
So it seems, advantage physical machines (And that server I have is old, I imagine a newer i7 will kill a vps)

I think something happened, I must have been dreaming of something "failing" as its 230 AM here and I woke up and thought it was 6AM and started working, I see the hard disk is full in testnet, full of errors, and 2 of my vultr Prod nodes have "Emergency Failures" (this is on the vultr side, they said Non Recoverable), LOL, start of a great morning. 

I need to filter out the log to see whats going on.

Glad you got it fixed, I will compile the new version and wait a day before I deploy the other 9 nodes. It takes me about 2 hours to start all the nodes. No problem, it's just part of testing.

Cool, I think its working now, Im not seeing anything unusual in the logs. 

I forgot to mention the newest version does have the 100ms sleep feature in the miner, so technically BBP should be using 1% cpu power when mining unless you set 'fullspeed=true'.  This is defaulted to true in prod, of course.

Im the only miner mining right now in testned (ca89*).

So the blocks are taking 15 mins each...

Did you need me to turn on the mining? I think it would be helpful if the sleep feature was a variable from 0-100 so people can adjust it according to their needs.

What else do we need to test right now?

Not sure if it matters though, its on by default, and makes the miner run at 100 HPS or so.  If they turn it off, they can use genproclimit to mine as fast as they want if thats what they insist on.

Uhh, we definitely need to test headless's ability to download the file.  Could you run headless, and do a 'exec dcc' and see if it updates the /SAN files to current timestamp?

Then do an exec testvote also and lets see if we both vote on the same file.

Upgrading my 2 testnet sanctuaries now, one of them I had to totally clean the .dat files and blocks and chainstate folders,
the other one disconnected when compiling

Do we have the latest windows version compiled already? I cannot compile it myself even in linux as all my boxes don't have QT installed at the moment so no gui available for me.
Thank you.

With the newest version QT is not required anymore. You just need to compile and run the daemon.

Yeah, it looks like 1.0.9.1 is OK to release.

Windows is out there now guys.

Looks like we matched, great!

But we will need more hashers out here with CPIDs to speed up these blocks....

Edit: It looks like Im the only one mining.  The mining feature is working, Im mining at 1 HPS!  This is cool, 99.9% available for Rosetta....

Yeah, I started the mining, 0.84hps. How much mining power do we need to keep the network operating with 500k transactions per day? I mean, for bitcoin, if there was only 10 people mining, could it process 500k transactions per day?

But lets clarify one thing quickly first, its 1 HPS because we are sleeping, it rises up to more like 100 HPS when the CPID is actually available in an open spot (to mine the next block). 

As far as Tx per day, we would be able to process 32,767 per block * 202 per day, max.  But you would see very high fees after the 7000'th transaction because the size of the block would be very large.  Otoh, our fees are so small, compared to bitcoin, a 1000 bbp fee is still only .20 cent compared to bitcoin $17 fee.

Really you dont need much mining power as long as we are not getting attacked.  DGW kicks in when people throw a lot of hash our way.
In some POS coins like blackcoin, diff can stay at 5.0 for a whole day if hardly anyone is staking, and security is not suffering (as long as they have a wide distribution of holders).
