Has anyone measured what are the hardware and bandwidth requirements to run a mining pool? Are there any statistics on that per amount of active miners, their hashspeed and other variables?

1 Answer 1

  • a good dedicated server will be enough to run a pool like eligius
  • you will need to ln -s /dev/null debug.log ( or logrotate the file ) if you dont want to run out of space
  • you could use a good anti-ddos protection if your pool becomes popular ( most pools and bitcoin businesses are regularly ddosed .
  • concerning server load and bandwidth usage, you could be interested in reading this ( very technical ) log extract , setting this parameter ( difficulty rewrite ) can help to reduce load ( receiving more or less miners requests / second ) and / or make your pool more or less cpuminer friendly
