mod6: the box was doing nothing else while this thing was running.
mircea_popescu: mod6 doesn't matter which chart per se, just trying to put this in context. what was bitcoind doing in the interval ?
ascii_field: so far, i'm 90% certain that this is mainly due to fragging.
mod6: OH
mircea_popescu: ascii_field i don't recall ever running a node under 8gb, and for that matter that was more like 2012. i think everything now's 32.
mod6: yeah, full blockchain sync
mod6: sorry.
mircea_popescu: 6 days ?
mircea_popescu: also pretty good.
mod6: yeah about that.
mod6: started on 20150505
mod6: ended yesterday, the 11th.
mircea_popescu: http://thebitcoin.foundation/OrphanageThermonukeCharts/Page_Faults.png << negative page faults o.O
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1FiQ5wQ )
mod6: yeah, some of these charts don't make sense to me.
mod6: maybe that just means there was only a few page faults.
mod6: most of the time, looks like 0? except for the beginning.
mircea_popescu: mod6 yeah kinda what i was trying to evaluate, if the "0, usually" is valid.
trinque: lol is it a signed int that wrapped?
mod6: no idea. i can post the raw data if someone wants to pour through it.
mod6: 112Mb lol
mircea_popescu: anyway, i must say the profiling seen here crowns an expectation that has been slowly building from what was shown prior, ie that the snipped bitcoin 5 we're using is actually a major improvement over the old bitcoin 5, and thus very, very far ahead of bitcoin 10/11/etc.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu did read the patch iirc
mircea_popescu: ascii_field industrial engineering is a three century old history of "minimal improvements have astounding effects"
ascii_field: doesn't change much
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: aha, 'the right screw' (tm)
mircea_popescu: exactly.
ascii_field specializes in approximately this kind of circus trick
mod6: anyway, I was considering running another full-sync without the OrphanageThermonuke patch -- just a v0.5.3.1-RELEASE baseline.
mircea_popescu: dabbled in same, back in the day.
mod6: then maybe we have something to compare too... and maybe even a v0.5.3 original baseline as well.
ascii_field: mod6: by all means, the more - the merrier
ascii_field: ben_vulpes iirc had a few graphs
mircea_popescu: mod6 not a bad idea. but make sure you package these with the required context and publish them.
mod6: gotcha.
ascii_field: mod6: best to let these run in parallel
mod6: anyway, sorry if the charts were less then stellar, but at least /something/ to look at.
mircea_popescu: as it is, this reporting, it is a 90% of an excellent job. make the extra 10%. make it whole, it'll be great.
ascii_field: (they still won't deterministically sync from same places, but still)
mod6: ascii_field: parallel?!
mircea_popescu: mod6 maybe even think about writing a qntra piece, or ben_vulpes
ascii_field: mod6: on two identical boxes
ascii_field: simultaneously
mod6: hrm. well...
mod6: too expensive.
mod6: the one alone costs me $89/mo. and now i've got 2 others for gentoo, and another one is gonna get pricy for this month.
ascii_field: do it at home ?
mod6: so, i probably just run them consecutively unless it /really/ matters.
mod6: i don't have the kinda hardware for this sort of ting.
mod6: *thing
mircea_popescu: i don't see it makes that big of a difference.
ascii_field: probably doesn't
mod6: if you're looking at timing metrics, I can just use 'time' or just rely on the time started in PS and subtract that from the end time.

ascii_field: recall, we aren't using the leveldb thing

mircea_popescu: back to the lulzlaw department for a moment, " Nonetheless, the government concedes that it failed to file a timely certificate with the district court "that the appeal was not taken for purpose of delay and that the evidence is a substantial proof of a fact material in the proceeding," although § 3731 required it to do so. The government has now filed such a certificate, and correctly notes that the late filing, alth
mircea_popescu: ough not regarded with favor, does not rise to jurisdictional dimensions."
mircea_popescu: o, so the government filed late ? it's ok, we'll invent some legally meaningless words it can be bad in, but otherwise it's fine.
mircea_popescu: you try filing late.
mircea_popescu: fuckheads delayed filing the certificate that they're not appealing to delay.
mircea_popescu: "The certificate was filed seven months after the entry of the district court's order and six months after the filing of the government's notice of appeal. It was filed only after the defendants raised the issue of its absence in their briefs to this Court."
mircea_popescu: and so therefore, " If the requirement of the timely filing of a certificate is to have substantial meaning, the government's appeal here should be dismissed. Indeed, the purpose of the certificate requirement is to ensure the government has verified the propriety of its appeal, and so certified to the district court, at the time it files its notice of appeal. That purpose is defeated by the perfunctory filing of the c
mircea_popescu: ertificate after the appeal has been docketed and briefed and within days of its argument in this Court."
mircea_popescu: but is there a disbarment of the government counsel as a result of attempted fraud in open court ?
jurov: "but that does not rise to jurisdictional dimensions"
mircea_popescu: where is the one year in the can for contempt + civil liability for the prosecuting team + their eighteen indictment trial for all sorts of fraud, abuse of legal process etc.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: rule of law is a statal fiction, news-at-eleven.
mircea_popescu: check it out, the government is required to file a certificate. and if they don't... fuckall. and if it's fraudulent ? all the better.
mircea_popescu: and moreover, the government can contempt the court all it wants, that's what it's there for after all.

Being subject to the prejudice and technical limitations of the times is inescapable (the notion of "humors" may have made more sense without knowing of chemical reactions).

mod6: <+hanbot> ... hey mod6, could you make a version of this that isn't aws-specific? or wouldja be willing to me make one? << yea, absolutely. I'll get there at some point soon hopefully.
BingoBoingo: http://i.imgur.com/RvF9Pje.jpg
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1HctjnQ )
mod6: Allow me to elaborate for a minute here and I'll explain why I did what I did.
mod6: To begin with, I was completely unfamiliar with gentoo in any sense -- aside from once trying to set it up from the Handbook, which I found that I didn't have time to work my way through and get it set up properly. So my goal was to get familiar with Gentoo and to start to build a system that can be agreed upon that suits our needs for building bitcoind.
mod6: One of my goals was to get this going as soon as possible in AWS so we could continue with builds/testing/development and ditch Debian6. And additonally, I have a 350Gb storage volume there that I wanted to not just discard as it has at least half-a-dozen fully sync'd blockchains on there.
mod6: So the idea was that I would learn a few things about Gentoo, get a hand-rolled stage3 + a fully blessed tool chain and be able to attch my "btc-dev" storage volume and just pick up where we left-off -- at lesat as far as what artifacts I'd already collected.
mod6: Upon news of my endevour, Mr. P. asked me to document what I'd done carefully so we all can be on the same page -- which is also good because I don't know what I'm doing with Gentoo anyway. Having people look over what I'm doing provides some bit of steering in-case I get off course.
mod6: So basically that's where we are. I've gotten to the point where I can create an AWS AMI -> deploy hand-rolled Gentoo instance. I'll certainly continue to build out the blessed toolchain over the next week and beyond. Further, then I'll take what I've learned from all of this and apply it to building a hand-rolled Gentoo on a bare-rails environment.
mod6: Apparently this is not much different than what I've already done, but I really don't know.
gabriel_laddel: mod6: have you looked into the portage sources?
gabriel_laddel: I was poking around the other day - first there is ~70k LoC, which wtf seriously
mod6: And lastly, I really need to get some sort of physical environment here to support that last part. So I'll work on figuring out something for that as well. Maybe even an old laptop.
mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel but if anyone opposed to smoking, drinking and eating whatever falls into your hads is "new age bs", then hippo should be too.

gabriel_laddel: mod6: portage is the project that houses "emerge"
mod6: yeah, well, I did add the "portage-latest" into the handrolled gentoo.

mircea_popescu: well ok, but in terms of standards : as a young man with no property, your options were essentially to go into military service, which offered pay and, upon serving 18ish to 20something years, a large settlement payment and provincial land.
mircea_popescu: this allowed you to take a young woman and start a household in relative security. the exact american dream.
mircea_popescu: the alternatives to this are unclear. if very clever you could have traded, but various ethic groups had a defacto monopoly on that, and a very large cultural advantage.
williamdunne: Yes, I'm familiar with the land-ownership. Truly brilliant option IMO. As you say, American dream.
mircea_popescu: otherwise... maybe become a client for some important patron, and done what the us sub-political class does today. in the day's huffington post and astroturfed meetings and whatnot. a very precarious existence, certainly the slavegirls had it better.
