I have a question...

  1. If I'm mining with a litecoind/bitcoind process, and a pushpool. How can i move the whole shablam to a new server/copmputer WHILEST saving the progress I have on this current round?

  2. Also, can i move the litecoind/bitcoind and/or pushpoold service and files without having to rebuild them from source on the new machine?

Help is highly appriciated!

  • Are you hosting a pushpool yourself? Doesn't the pool save the amount of shares you submitted to your account so that your progress is automatically saved to your account? – Steven Roose May 14 '13 at 12:22
  • The answer on your second question will heavily depend on how similar the two machines are you are moving between. – Steven Roose May 14 '13 at 12:23
  • Yes, I'm hosting a pushpool myself. I don't know... All I know is that it puts shares into a database, that's neat and all, but does the progress actually save on the litecoind "account" ? – Robin Jonsson May 14 '13 at 14:41
  • Oh and the second question, well it's basicly the same machine, one more core and double the ram. Same Ubuntu image. – Robin Jonsson May 14 '13 at 14:42

    I changed the title, now I upvoted. You need to know that Bitcoin doesn't have such a thing as "progress". Mining is about trying a random puzzle, every hash your computer calculates has an equal chance of finding a block, regardless of how long you have been looking for that block. – Steven Roose May 14 '13 at 16:32

If you're the only person using the pool server, it doesn't matter how many shares you have -- all the profits are yours. Who would you be sharing them with?

  • It's me and my friends. Shares are kept in the database, which i will move over to the new server as well, of course. – Robin Jonsson May 14 '13 at 17:56
  1. To move work stats/shares you have to move those stored data. In your case probably a database.

  2. You can use the same binaries if the new computer runs the same operating system on the same architecture. Otherwise just recompile them.

  • Yeah, I went ahead and recompiled them. – Robin Jonsson May 16 '13 at 10:17

Well basically I went ahead and moved the database (mysql) and rebuilt the pushpool, stratum and litecoind sources on linux.

  • Pretty much what I said – Dr.Haribo Jun 5 '13 at 20:58
