I'm running an ALT coin daemon (reddcoin) on my Unix server. Using it maxes out the CPU. Has anyone experienced this before? I'm currently launching the daemon with "reddcoind".

I built the daemon with this guide: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=460178.msg5080166#msg5080166.

The coin I'm running can be seen here: https://github.com/reddcoin/reddcoin

I have tried various ways to launch the daemon including "reddcoind &", and "reddcoin -daemon". The original build guide (first link above), shows to run without any parameters.

The website that is querying the daemon does have a lot of registered users and wallet addresses. Does this need to be cleaned up? If so how? Thanks for your help. It will be very appreciated.

  • Are you still synchronizing or mining? Both could easily explain a high cpu load. – Murch Feb 28 '14 at 21:19
  • I don't believe it could be synching still as the server has been up a week. It's not a mining machine. It's the RPC server for a dice game on the same machine via LAMP. – Mayur Jobanputra Feb 28 '14 at 22:00
  • I also found some info here about limiting the cpu which seems to be working ok bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/13665/… but I still don't know why the CPU would spike with the daemon running – Mayur Jobanputra Feb 28 '14 at 22:11
