   5 2013-03-12 00:00:56 <thermoman> could it be that someone tried to sneak a falsified block into the network?
   6 2013-03-12 00:01:02 <sipa> no
   7 2013-03-12 00:01:16 <sipa> but it seems blockexplorer is stuck too...
   8 2013-03-12 00:01:24 <sipa> as i'm on 225439
   9 2013-03-12 00:01:36 <thermoman> because at the time when 225429 was current my debug.log showed a client with block cont 225431 !
  10 2013-03-12 00:02:01 <sipa> Luke-Jr: you running a pre-0.8 client somewhere?
  11 2013-03-12 00:02:14 <Luke-Jr> sipa: yes
  12 2013-03-12 00:02:23 <sipa> no out-of-locks issue?

  51 2013-03-12 00:07:07 <Luke-Jr> MagicalTux: is MtGox on the 0.8 or pre-0.8 side of the fork?
  52 2013-03-12 00:07:08 <jgarzik> hmmmm
  53 2013-03-12 00:07:20 <MagicalTux> are we already at the fork's point ?
  54 2013-03-12 00:07:26 <Luke-Jr> MagicalTux: it was an accident.
  55 2013-03-12 00:07:40 <MagicalTux> then it'll be dropped by us
  56 2013-03-12 00:07:45 <Luke-Jr> …
  57 2013-03-12 00:07:49 <Luke-Jr> which side? :P

  59 2013-03-12 00:08:00 <sipa> MagicalTux: which is your last block?
  60 2013-03-12 00:08:06 <sipa> it seems many (all?) 0.7.x nodes ran out of lock entries, and are stuck
  61 2013-03-12 00:08:21 <Luke-Jr> my immediate concern is, which fork are the majority of miners on?
  62 2013-03-12 00:08:25 <sipa> Luke-Jr: mine too
  63 2013-03-12 00:08:32 <lianj> fork point?
  64 2013-03-12 00:09:15 <sipa> thermoman: that could help, but those numbers seem low
  65 2013-03-12 00:09:19 <MagicalTux> last considered "valid" block is 225427
  66 2013-03-12 00:09:52 <Luke-Jr> MagicalTux: so you're on a 3rd fork? :/
  67 2013-03-12 00:09:55 <MagicalTux> (we mark blocks as "valid" when we have 6 blocks after that)
  68 2013-03-12 00:09:58 <Luke-Jr> oh
  69 2013-03-12 00:10:05 <Luke-Jr> sounds like pre-0.8
  70 2013-03-12 00:10:08 <jgarzik> hrm
  71 2013-03-12 00:10:16 <Luke-Jr> MagicalTux: I'd suggest freezing acceptance after 430 or so
  72 2013-03-12 00:10:18 <jgarzik> so pre-0.8 has 2000-transaction limit?
  73 2013-03-12 00:10:22 <thermoman> sipa: what would you suggest? 10.000 instead?
  74 2013-03-12 00:10:38 <sipa> thermoman: the default 0.7.x code uses is 40000
  75 2013-03-12 00:10:44 <thermoman> ok

 131 2013-03-12 00:20:38 <Luke-Jr> sipa: seems to me the best short-term fix is to get miners off 0.8
 132 2013-03-12 00:20:46 <Luke-Jr> but at least 38% is on 0.8 right now

 134 2013-03-12 00:20:52 <Luke-Jr> otoh, that 38% is actively reachable
 135 2013-03-12 00:21:10 <lianj> Luke-Jr: why did .8 create a forked chain?
 136 2013-03-12 00:21:12 <PRab> does it make sense to shut down .8 nodes?
 137 2013-03-12 00:21:31 <sipa> lianj: miners increases maximum block size; it seems old nodes break on too large blocks
 138 2013-03-12 00:21:37 <Luke-Jr> PRab: I think so

 140 2013-03-12 00:21:57 <lianj> sipa: increased to what? what was it before?

 150 2013-03-12 00:22:53 <Luke-Jr> gavinandresen: if we go with 0.8, we are hardforking
 151 2013-03-12 00:22:56 <sipa> Luke-Jr, gavinandresen, Luke-Jr: the forking action is a too large block - if we ask miners to switch temporarily to smaller blocks again, we should get to a single chain soon
 152 2013-03-12 00:23:19 <sipa> with a majority of miners on small blocks, there is no risk
 153 2013-03-12 00:23:22 <genbtc> how large was the large block? beyond a meg ?
 154 2013-03-12 00:23:26 <Eleuthria> The pre-0.8 will never accept the post-0.8 chain will they?
 155 2013-03-12 00:23:28 <Luke-Jr> gavinandresen: majority hashpower has never ruled on a hardfork before
 156 2013-03-12 00:23:31 <Eleuthria> So it wouldn't converge.
 157 2013-03-12 00:23:31 maaku has quit (Quit: maaku)
 158 2013-03-12 00:23:32 <sipa> Eleuthria: indeed
 159 2013-03-12 00:23:47 <Luke-Jr> there is no precedent to this
 160 2013-03-12 00:23:47 <sipa> Eleuthria: except pre-0.8 with manually increased lock sizes
 161 2013-03-12 00:24:04 <jrmithdobbs> ouch that's nasty
 162 2013-03-12 00:24:29 <sipa> and i disagree with majority hashpower wins; this is a hardfork - just a majority isn't enough
 163 2013-03-12 00:24:40 <Luke-Jr> so it's either 1) lose 6 blocks, or 2) hardfork for no benefit
 164 2013-03-12 00:24:48 <Eleuthria> We'll lose more than 6
 165 2013-03-12 00:24:58 <Eleuthria> The chains are 6 different in size
 166 2013-03-12 00:25:04 <Eleuthria> But didn't they fork much earlier than this?
 167 2013-03-12 00:25:05 <sipa> all old miners will stick to their own chain, regardless of the mining power behind the other
 168 2013-03-12 00:25:06 <Luke-Jr> and the sooner we decide on #1, the fewer it loses

 171 2013-03-12 00:25:31 <Luke-Jr> ideally before 100 blocks IMO
 172 2013-03-12 00:25:34 <sipa> i don't think we can risk this
 173 2013-03-12 00:25:47 <Luke-Jr> sipa: either way is a risk
 174 2013-03-12 00:26:00 <sipa> even with 90% of mining power on 0.8, all merchants on an old client will be vulnerable
 175 2013-03-12 00:26:00 <genbtc> what about miners who have left their shit unattended forever, how will they even know they have to do something new
 176 2013-03-12 00:26:02 <Luke-Jr> if we hardfork, all Bitcoin service providers have an emergency situation
 177 2013-03-12 00:26:19 <Luke-Jr> genbtc: not our problem IMO
 178 2013-03-12 00:26:24 <sipa> the only sane choice is making a chain that we know now everyone accepts
 179 2013-03-12 00:26:31 <Eleuthria> The fork happened at 225430

 187 2013-03-12 00:27:36 <etotheipi_> (sorry, jumping in late, here)
 188 2013-03-12 00:27:40 <Luke-Jr> etotheipi_: it's only for a 0.8-made block
 189 2013-03-12 00:27:45 <sipa> etotheipi_: the locks are only held per-block-connection
 190 2013-03-12 00:27:54 <sipa> etotheipi_: so it's just "too large" blocks that are rejected

 192 2013-03-12 00:28:06 <genbtc> so how large WAS the forking block
 193 2013-03-12 00:28:06 <sipa> gavinandresen, Luke-Jr, jgarzik, MagicalTux, Eleuthria: i don't think we can choose the 0.8 fork at this point, there is too much risk
 194 2013-03-12 00:28:10 <etotheipi_> what's "too large"?
 195 2013-03-12 00:28:11 <Eleuthria> Rolling back to pre-0.8 seems to be the right solution.
 196 2013-03-12 00:28:14 <deego> If I delete (corrupted file, for some reasn) blk0003.dat, but keep the other blk* files, will my client re-construct it? Or, do I need to delete all the files the blk* ?

 198 2013-03-12 00:28:35 <sipa> deego: you'll need a -reindex after that, but that will work
 199 2013-03-12 00:28:36 <genbtc> you can -reindex
 200 2013-03-12 00:28:40 <Luke-Jr> sipa: I agree, hoping gavinandresen didn't disappear on us ..
 201 2013-03-12 00:28:46 <sipa> deego: also, do just a -reindex, without deleting the file
 202 2013-03-12 00:28:51 <gavinandresen> I'm here, just thinking….
 203 2013-03-12 00:29:08 <deego> sipa, genbtc: Thanks. sipa: Without deleting? It wouldn't even cp to another file. Input/output error. :(
 204 2013-03-12 00:29:10 <jgarzik> indeed, what's "too large"
 205 2013-03-12 00:29:12 <HM> I say alert the exchanges and the likes of Bitpay immediately
 206 2013-03-12 00:29:15 <jgarzik> we need to identify the triggering conditions

 208 2013-03-12 00:29:16 <sipa> gavinandresen: there was an implicit rule "no too large blocks"; we widened the rule with 0.8 apparently
 209 2013-03-12 00:29:22 <jgarzik> we have had > 400k blocks before
 210 2013-03-12 00:29:26 <MagicalTux> [09:28:59] <HM> I say alert the exchanges and the likes of Bitpay immediately <- we already disabled import of new blocks at MtGox
 211 2013-03-12 00:29:27 <jgarzik> and testnet has seen max size
 212 2013-03-12 00:29:31 <jgarzik> it's not just "big block"
 213 2013-03-12 00:29:35 <jgarzik> it is some other condition

 220 2013-03-12 00:30:22 <sipa> and we _cannot_ get every bitcoin user in the world to now instantly switch to 0.8
 221 2013-03-12 00:30:23 <HM> what block caused the fork
 222 2013-03-12 00:30:31 <sipa> so no, we need to rollback to the 0.7 chain
 223 2013-03-12 00:30:37 <jgarzik> sipa: we did not fork before on large blocks
 224 2013-03-12 00:30:42 <lianj> which bitcoin git commit is in question?
 225 2013-03-12 00:30:44 <jgarzik> sipa: so what was special about the block in question?
 226 2013-03-12 00:30:45 <Eleuthria> Working on rolling back BTC Guild to 0.7 now.
 227 2013-03-12 00:30:48 <genbtc> 225430
 228 2013-03-12 00:31:02 <jrmithdobbs> sipa: ya, sounds like that change needs to be reverted in the .8 tree, like *now*, and everyone who *has* already upgraded needs to be encouraged to do so again
 229 2013-03-12 00:31:03 <gavinandresen> jgarzik: 998,081 byte, 1700+ transaction block
 230 2013-03-12 00:31:10 <Eleuthria> I absolutely agree, there is no way the 0.8 chain can continue in this situation.  An involuntary hardfork doesn't gain legitimacy due to majority.
 231 2013-03-12 00:31:23 <Graet> ozcoin wont even get looked at for an hour or so
 232 2013-03-12 00:31:24 <cyphase> so they forked at 225430? just to be clear
 233 2013-03-12 00:31:26 <sipa> jgarzik: whatever triggered it (be it large block or some other property), it is something that 0.8 allows and 0.7 doesn't
 234 2013-03-12 00:31:29 <jrmithdobbs> also, if this isn't an alert message scenario I don't know what is, where's that at? :)
 235 2013-03-12 00:31:33 <Graet> no-one is avalable and i need to take kids to school
 236 2013-03-12 00:31:39 <jgarzik> alert is definitely needed
 237 2013-03-12 00:31:40 <jgarzik> here
 238 2013-03-12 00:31:41 <sipa> jrmithdobbs: we can't just revert back to BDB
 239 2013-03-12 00:31:42 <gavinandresen> this is definitely an alert message scenario
 240 2013-03-12 00:31:47 <jrmithdobbs> sipa: aware
 241 2013-03-12 00:31:49 <gavinandresen> … just have to decide what to say first
 242 2013-03-12 00:31:58 <sipa> and it is BDB that implicitly defined a condition for us
 243 2013-03-12 00:32:02 <jrmithdobbs> sipa: i'm saying the larger txn limit or whatever is determined to have caused the fork
 244 2013-03-12 00:32:02 <sipa> (or our config of it)
 245 2013-03-12 00:32:03 <phantomcircuit> jrmithdobbs, 0.7 clients are already displaying a big scary warning
 246 2013-03-12 00:32:03 <gwillen> If we don't even understand _what_ the triggering condition is, it seems like a rollback is the only sensible response.
 247 2013-03-12 00:32:19 <Luke-Jr> gavinandresen: it's only critical for miners IMO
 248 2013-03-12 00:32:19 <phantomcircuit> Warning: Displayed transactions may not be correct! You may need to upgrade, or other nodes may need to upgrade.

 255 2013-03-12 00:32:48 <sipa> we need to get a majority of miners on "small blocks" again (whatever small blocks means; it must be what 0.7 accepts)

 261 2013-03-12 00:33:32 <GMP> form my point of view, _very_ old code (0.5) reorg just fine to the longest chain, SetBestChain: new best=000000000000015c50b1  height=225430,  it just take time to connect to correct node
 262 2013-03-12 00:33:42 <lianj> if a rollback happens, which git commit is rolled back?

 301 2013-03-12 00:37:36 <gavinandresen> sipa: how does that solve the problem?  the 0.7 nodes are still stuck
 302 2013-03-12 00:37:39 <Eleuthria> There is no converging of these chains.
 303 2013-03-12 00:37:40 <sipa> not if the majority is on 0.8
 304 2013-03-12 00:37:57 <Eleuthria> Unless pools roll back to 0.7
 305 2013-03-12 00:38:04 <sipa> so the only immediately solution is having a majority of pools switch back to 0.7

 309 2013-03-12 00:38:34 <Luke-Jr> FWIW, Josh (EclipseMC) has to be on a plane in 20 minutes, so he needs this decided before then :/
 310 2013-03-12 00:38:44 <HM> is switching people back to 0.7 any easier than switching back to 0.8? presumably the upgrade path is better tested
 311 2013-03-12 00:38:53 <Luke-Jr> (EMC is currently 0.6)
 312 2013-03-12 00:38:53 <senseless> So whats the issue?
 313 2013-03-12 00:39:01 <senseless> I got the warning you need to upgrade. So I upgraded.
 314 2013-03-12 00:39:03 <K1773R> HM: should be easy if you didnt delete the old blockchain
 315 2013-03-12 00:39:04 <Graet> switching back will be pain, and will it actually solve anything?
 316 2013-03-12 00:39:13 <Luke-Jr> Graet: it will converge
 317 2013-03-12 00:39:15 <Eleuthria> Switching back would put 0.8 users back on the 0.7 chain

 320 2013-03-12 00:39:20 <Eleuthria> Once the 0.7 chain surpasses 0.8
 321 2013-03-12 00:39:20 <genbtc> a couple blocks just got mined that had literally 5 and 6 transactions in them
 322 2013-03-12 00:39:30 <lianj> Eleuthria: miners switching to 0.7 that is
 323 2013-03-12 00:39:31 <sipa> yes, as 0.8 accepts the 0.7 chain but not the other way around
 324 2013-03-12 00:39:36 <genbtc> but slush just mined a 444KB block that was fine
 325 2013-03-12 00:39:41 <genbtc> how can that be ?

 368 2013-03-12 00:42:33 <Shuro3> Yay, two fronts, 0.7 is the problem and 0.8 is the problem

 375 2013-03-12 00:43:03 <gyver> Luke-Jr: good luck convincing the majority of miners reverting and losing income
 376 2013-03-12 00:43:12 <jrmithdobbs> ya, there was an unknown limitation in .7 (which wouldn't lead to a bad situation by itself) which .8 accidentally fixed and the change just happens to hard fork
 377 2013-03-12 00:43:15 <sipa> it uses the longest chain visible

 385 2013-03-12 00:44:12 <DBordello> I have a service that accepts bitcoins, I don't want to end up on the wrong side of a split.  I am on 0.70.  what is the safest route?
 386 2013-03-12 00:44:13 <gyver> Eleuthria: that would remove a big problem, not sure if it's the right thing to do
 387 2013-03-12 00:44:13 <HM> it's a shame there isn't a dead-mans switch in bitcoind that kills transactions apis when the blockchain is forked by a large degree
 388 2013-03-12 00:44:18 <MagicalTux> [09:40:13] <gavinandresen> If we go back to 0.7, then we risk some other block triggering the same condition. <- if every miner is back on 0.7, those blocks will just be failed forks
 389 2013-03-12 00:44:27 <jgarzik> sipa, Eleuthria: ACK on preferring 0.7 chain, for the moment

 449 2013-03-12 00:49:34 <Luke-Jr> surge_: downgrade to 0.7 if you mine, or just wait
 450 2013-03-12 00:49:38 <jgarzik> piuk: It is a <= 0.7 bug in BDB, that larger blocks and 0.8 exposed

 472 2013-03-12 00:50:36 <Shuro3> Now iam courious about Eleuthria who said that he  can single handedly put 0.7 back to the majority hash power. How can he do that?
 473 2013-03-12 00:50:36 <Luke-Jr> doublec: worst case should be a little wasted space
 474 2013-03-12 00:50:47 <gyver> bock: on both forks
 475 2013-03-12 00:50:49 <sipa> Shuro3: he has some ASICs pointing at him
 476 2013-03-12 00:50:55 <Eleuthria> Shuro3:  BTC Guild represents about half of the 0.8 chain fork
 477 2013-03-12 00:51:01 * jgarzik switched over to BTC Guild just now, too
 478 2013-03-12 00:51:04 <Eleuthria> So if BTC Guild moves from 0.8 to 0.7
 479 2013-03-12 00:51:10 <Eleuthria> 0.7 will have the majority hash power again
 480 2013-03-12 00:51:24 <doublec> are setting block size parameteres still safe?
 481 2013-03-12 00:51:26 <Luke-Jr> Shuro3: it was already close
 482 2013-03-12 00:51:26 <Shuro3> okay, so Eleuthria is from BTC Guild, okay.
 483 2013-03-12 00:51:28 <doublec> or should I leave it default?

 507 2013-03-12 00:53:05 <lianj> gyver: true, but .8 clients are affected by the wrong chain too. but in the solution case, the miners taking the hash power back to .7 matters so that a longer .7 compatible chain emerges
 508 2013-03-12 00:53:05 <sipa> we have ~decided that getting miners temporarily back on 0.7 is the best solution now

 563 2013-03-12 00:58:31 <phantomcircuit> but it disappeared
 564 2013-03-12 00:58:32 <thermoman> should the 0.7 clients be shutdown for security?

 577 2013-03-12 00:59:24 <Luke-Jr> gavinandresen: probably still should send an alert not to trust confirms?
 578 2013-03-12 00:59:35 <crashoveride4> i have .7.1beta and it's not even sync'in up anymore
 579 2013-03-12 00:59:38 <jgarzik> by the time the alert is read
 580 2013-03-12 00:59:41 <jgarzik> we'll have converged
 581 2013-03-12 00:59:50 <phantomcircuit> gavinandresen, an alert should go out, for some reason the warning message disappears after a very short period of time
 582 2013-03-12 00:59:50 <Luke-Jr> jgarzik: 45 minutes?
 583 2013-03-12 01:00:37 <K1773R> Luke-Jr: there should be definitely a warning for the 0.8 users, this way solo miners know the problem faster and can downgrade earlier
 584 2013-03-12 01:00:39 <Shuro3> so what should 0.7.2 do? Some people are brabbeling about an old blockchain and I've lost the thread a while ago
 585 2013-03-12 01:00:48 <holorga> btw, people, email http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=30587843 recommending "Immediate solution is upgrading to 0.8" is circulating fast, maybe update this info if you are reverting to 0.7

 594 2013-03-12 01:01:28 <piuk> for 0.7 i guess dp.cpp: dbenv.set_lk_max_locks() needs increasing?
 595 2013-03-12 01:01:31 <JWU42> send hashes to btcguild one E is on 0.7 ?
 596 2013-03-12 01:01:32 <Eleuthria> Luke:  At least one of slush's nodes is on pre-0.8

 608 2013-03-12 01:02:18 <gwillen> so, will all 0.7.x nodes run out of lock entries deterministically on the same set of blocks?
 609 2013-03-12 01:02:22 <randy-waterhouse> so now we can stop SatoshiDICE ... how convenient
 610 2013-03-12 01:02:22 <schmoe> so what´s the worst case scenario of this? i mean not for the value in $ but for the system?
 611 2013-03-12 01:02:27 <gwillen> Assuming not, this means there is still fork potential, right?

 617 2013-03-12 01:02:43 <K1773R> schmoe: 0.8 chain will be invalidated, the faster its down the less harm
 618 2013-03-12 01:02:57 <gmaxwell> Making 0.7 compatible with 0.8 just make it problematic too. This is a hardfork. We need to get consistency with a chain accepted by the least common denominator.

 649 2013-03-12 01:04:49 <gwillen> KuDeTa: I am not a canonical source, but it appears to me that the problem is that a bug in 0.7 is triggered on blocks with many transactions

 787 2013-03-12 01:12:17 <gavinandresen> Everybody mining on version 0.8 should stop mining for now.  When you start again in a few hours, you should set your maxblocksize to 500k or less.

 809 2013-03-12 01:13:40 <gwillen> Can I ask again: Is the set of blocks which will fail validation due to the 0.7 bug a deterministic set? Or will it differ from client to client?
 810 2013-03-12 01:13:42 <Ukto> if the db is up to date, shows latest block, it should be fine, right?

 946 2013-03-12 01:23:08 <thermoman> clients on 0.7 don't have issues with payments (spent double) or anything like this, right? so a market with bitcoin clients running 0.7.2 just has to sit tight and wait, right?
 947 2013-03-12 01:23:09 <Eleuthria> 50.31.149.57:3333 is now on pre-0.8 chain

 981 2013-03-12 01:24:58 <moartr4dez> jrmithdobbs: that's what I thought - because it's a bug in 0.7 (I'm not concerned about the official blockchain, just disruption to miners)
 982 2013-03-12 01:25:00 <jrmithdobbs> moartr4dez: there's more to the fix than just getting the majority of miners on .7
 983 2013-03-12 01:25:21 <K1773R> jrmithdobbs, true, but we have to get the majority back to 0.7 first
 984 2013-03-12 01:25:23 <jrmithdobbs> moartr4dez: but that part has to happen before fixing .8 will matter, once .8 is patched the scenario you describe should not be possible

 993 2013-03-12 01:25:51 <moartr4dez> sounds good - but miners could still run an unpatched 0.8 - so seems like 0.7 needs patching too?

1009 2013-03-12 01:26:37 <jrmithdobbs> moartr4dez: no, .7 wont need patching once the chain reconvenes the regression was in .8 due to an oversight in an unintended limitation in the bdb code in .7 (which was removed and replaced in .8)

1017 2013-03-12 01:27:24 <jrmithdobbs> if you have a .8 node running, shut it down
1018 2013-03-12 01:27:34 <jrmithdobbs> if you have a large ammount of hash power, revert to .7.2
1019 2013-03-12 01:27:40 <KuDeTa> shaded, i made a post a few minutes ago so my people can see whats going on easily
1020 2013-03-12 01:27:40 <jouke> thermoman: about the transactions that may not be correct.
1021 2013-03-12 01:27:41 <jrmithdobbs> if neither applies to you, shut up and wait a bit

1031 2013-03-12 01:28:33 <phantomcircuit> anachron, 0.8 nodes which are not mining are fine
1032 2013-03-12 01:28:36 <Luke-Jr> jrmithdobbs: yes, but any node mining 0.8 right now will make invalid blocks

2316 2013-03-12 02:28:47 <theymos> Did the DoS protections cause 0.7 and 0.8 to also segment on the TCP network? That's something I've been worried about since the DoS protections were added.
2317 2013-03-12 02:28:51 <Luke-Jr> [02:28:26] <random_cat> my .324 client appeared to use the .8 chain
2318 2013-03-12 02:28:53 <jgarzik> Current stock advice:  merchants should pause transaction processing.  miners should mine 0.7.  everyone else just wait.

2784 2013-03-12 03:06:51 <Eleuthria> slush:  It can happen again if 0.8 chain gets yet another block that isn't valid on 0.7
2785 2013-03-12 03:06:57 <gmaxwell> Eleuthria: once we're sure we completely understand the limit we'll impose it in 0.8.1. Likely it will just slightly limit the number of very small transactions in a block or similar.
2786 2013-03-12 03:07:02 <Eleuthria> slush:  At least until a patched 0.8 is available that won't accept blocks that cause the fork

2859 2013-03-12 03:13:55 <novusordo> could a patch be released for previous versions of bitcoin to accomodate a hardfork at some point? that way, people who are hesitant about upgrading to newer versions could still choose to vote in favor of the fork.

E.g. reindex implicit + some way of mining on a reindexing mode + you making the procedural error + crediting users for diff 1 and allowing instant withdraw

3310 2013-03-12 03:57:06 <petertodd> gmaxwell: Excellent example.
3311 2013-03-12 03:57:14 <Luke-Jr> jrmithdobbs: if <50% had 0.8, they'd just get orphaned over
3312 2013-03-12 03:57:17 <gmaxwell> It's somewhat unusual that so much hashpower upgrade to 0.8 so quickly.
3313 2013-03-12 03:57:32 <Luke-Jr> jrmithdobbs: if >50% had 0.8, it would effectively enforce a hardfork and the rest would have to upgrade

3317 2013-03-12 03:57:38 <sipa> well, in theory, bitcoin is a consensus of its community; it being decentralized doesn't mean there is necessarily no communication between miners and other members of the community
3318 2013-03-12 03:57:39 <Eleuthria> Right now there's a severe imbalance in hashpower, that would be fully anonymous/hard to contact.
3319 2013-03-12 03:57:40 <gmaxwell> You know we'd seriously discussed things like disabling mining in 0.8 or actively discouraging it for mining.
3320 2013-03-12 03:57:42 <slush> it's not a surprise for me
3321 2013-03-12 03:58:04 <jrmithdobbs> Luke-Jr: yes, so we'd have a split chain like earlier, i'm talking about the resolution not the problem

3449 2013-03-12 04:14:54 <pizzacat> so.. rough estimate, let's say the 0.7 chain miners are now 75% of the net, 1 block every 15 minutes, about 13 blocks needed at that growth, 15*13=195 minutes, about 3:15 hours.. And this is based on no miners switching to 0.7 in the upcoming hours (some will). I say at most, 3 hours max?
3450 2013-03-12 04:15:07 <gmaxwell> Eleuthria: thats a misunderstanding of a hardfork. :P  In a hardfork it doesn't matter how much hash power you have, unless you mean by attacking the one you want to lose and adding DOS blocks it. :P

3517 2013-03-12 04:21:07 <gmaxwell> randy-waterhouse: thats part of why when we switch to leveldb we bundled it instead of linking it.
3518 2013-03-12 04:21:07 <Eleuthria> 11,800 GH/s looks way more impressive than 11.8 TH/s
3519 2013-03-12 04:21:09 <num1> Yes. Thanks for your hard work! I'm especially impressed by MagicalTux, who disabled mtgox's imports literally 5 minutes after the problem was discovered
3520 2013-03-12 04:21:11 <samurai1200> question!!! what would have happened if the botnet threat were worse than we thought, and 0.8 outpaced 0.7?
3521 2013-03-12 04:21:26 <drakness> that was riveting to watch.  Good job devs.
3522 2013-03-12 04:21:30 <Sydna> Eleuthria: for that matter, 11,800,000MH/s looks even more impressive

3526 2013-03-12 04:21:44 <petertodd> samurai1200: The advice would be for clients and miners to upgrade to 0.8
3527 2013-03-12 04:21:51 <Eleuthria> When you get into millions, people lose grasp of how big the number really is :P

3532 2013-03-12 04:22:04 <samurai1200> would we have been forced to join 0.8? would that mean some transactions part of that large block would be lost?
3533 2013-03-12 04:22:07 <PRab> Dev team: +1 very professional handling of this. Keep up the good work.
3534 2013-03-12 04:22:19 <k9quaint> Eleuthria: how is it that your webpage does not say "this pool goes to 11" somewhere?
3535 2013-03-12 04:22:20 <gmaxwell> samurai1200: would have made that one the winner if we didn't think we could have gone the other way, and checkpointed it so that it had to win in those.. but that would have been far more risky.
3536 2013-03-12 04:22:21 <Xenon481> Samurai1200: Nothing would have been lost.
3537 2013-03-12 04:22:23 <petertodd> samurai1200: Transactions that are on one chain get remined in the other.
3538 2013-03-12 04:22:26 <Eleuthria> samurai1200:  Since this was a hard fork, you couldn't be forced to move on to 0.8
3539 2013-03-12 04:22:40 <samurai1200> ah ah i see now
3540 2013-03-12 04:22:40 <Eleuthria> No matter how much power was on 0.8
3541 2013-03-12 04:22:43 <gmaxwell> Also would have issued a patched 0.7 and 0.6, and 0.5, and 0.4  and maybe even 0.3 (or at least luke would have done the last couple)
3542 2013-03-12 04:22:46 <BlackPrapor> Hello guys, is there a link which explains how block size limit could be avoided in the future release?
3543 2013-03-12 04:22:56 <samurai1200> 're-mined'

3552 2013-03-12 04:23:31 <Eleuthria> We caught the hardfork before any of the forked blocks were spendable, so for the most part, network transactions should not be too screwed up
3553 2013-03-12 04:23:34 <DrGuns4Hands> Glad you could all work together to get this resolved quickly ^^
3554 2013-03-12 04:23:35 <gmaxwell> BlackPrapor: if you're asking about the thing that happened tonight, that wasn't really a "block size limit"
3555 2013-03-12 04:23:37 <petertodd> samurai1200: Yes. Transactions are included in blocks right? So if a block gets orphaned, those transactions go back into the mempool to be mined again.
3556 2013-03-12 04:23:50 <BlackPrapor> gmaxwell: what was it then?

3568 2013-03-12 04:24:24 <Eleuthria> epylar:  There was a limited double spend window
3569 2013-03-12 04:24:30 <gmaxwell> BlackPrapor: we don't have it fully measured and determined yet, but its most likely the number of transaction outputs being spent plus the number of outputs being created.
3570 2013-03-12 04:24:51 <Eleuthria> It would have been easier to pull off (less hash power needed)
3571 2013-03-12 04:25:03 <gdoteoff> Any double spend analysis?
3572 2013-03-12 04:25:06 sddfddf has quit (Quit: Page closed)
3573 2013-03-12 04:25:08 <petertodd> Eleuthria: A hard one though keep in mind, the network itself isn't forked, so both sides use the same mempool and won't let double-spends propagate.
3574 2013-03-12 04:25:09 <gmaxwell> BlackPrapor: once we fully understand the limit 0.7 is implicitly creating due to bdb behavior we'll add a rule in a bitcoin 0.8. My expectation is that the limit will not be a major imposition.

3582 2013-03-12 04:25:37 <epylar> Well, obviously no lasting double spends, but theoretically you could convince more than one person that you had paid them with the same money and received physical goods, say.
3583 2013-03-12 04:25:39 <Eleuthria> ptertodd:  The network would have been forked IF this continued long enough for blocks mined on one fork for a block to become spendable
3584 2013-03-12 04:25:45 <gmaxwell> In this case there wasn't much double spend risk because there were blocks on the 0.7 chain right away. And those blocks were already duplicating transactions from the 0.8 chain.
3585 2013-03-12 04:25:50 <B0g4r7> I recommend that copious unit tests be built around the affected section of code.
3586 2013-03-12 04:25:53 <Eleuthria> Because those generations would not exist on the other side
3587 2013-03-12 04:26:03 <samurai1200> Watching the IRC chat in here after +m was like watching the scene in Apollo13 where they were figuring out the filter problem
3588 2013-03-12 04:26:07 <BlackPrapor> gmaxwell: so in the future, there its unlikely we would have a problem of too large blocks?

3590 2013-03-12 04:26:13 <petertodd> Eleuthria: Right, but only the affected transactions, other ones are still ok. Much more of a problem for sure though.
3591 2013-03-12 04:26:21 <num1> B0g4r7, after everything they just went though, I think you're preaching to the choir
3592 2013-03-12 04:26:43 <petertodd> B0g4r7: Unit testing for Bitcoin is limited by man power right now. Testing is hard frankly.
3593 2013-03-12 04:26:50 <gmaxwell> BlackPrapor: Correct.
3594 2013-03-12 04:26:52 <nanotube> hehe maybe -m was a little premature >____>

3604 2013-03-12 04:27:20 <EvilPete> B0g4r7: the problem wasn't a bug in 0.8 as such, but rather a bug in 0.7 and earlier that nobody knew existed, and hence 0.8 wasn't bug-compatible with.

3619 2013-03-12 04:28:13 <samurai1200> it boggles my mind to see so many folks that know the btc protocol inside out come together like that
3620 2013-03-12 04:28:20 <Eleuthria> lnxmad:  It was a good time to stumble in.  You got to see how well the network reacts to a crisis
3621 2013-03-12 04:28:22 <PRab> Also to do, rethink default error message to something other than please upgrade. In this situation, upgrading ended up not being the ideal path.

3641 2013-03-12 04:30:13 <gmaxwell> well, I think all of us had already thought about these kinds of situations before, so that helps. This wasn't an entirely unexpected class of problem.

3644 2013-03-12 04:30:42 <epylar> individual people with the ability to mine blocks is pretty rare.
3645 2013-03-12 04:30:42 <petertodd> etotheipi_: We should add a "getcurrentalert" RPC call so stuff like BitcoinArmory can display alerts too...
3646 2013-03-12 04:30:43 <samurai1200> Xenon481: technically those blocks were mined unfairly compared to the difficulty though
3647 2013-03-12 04:30:46 <etotheipi_> Xenon481: anyone with enough mining power to be so affected already understands that
3648 2013-03-12 04:30:53 <epylar> most people are part of a pool, and i don't think those people are losing anything

3656 2013-03-12 04:31:37 <etotheipi_> I guess I'll bump it up on my priority list
3657 2013-03-12 04:31:37 <EvilPete> the offending block was what? 974K out of the theoretical 1024K limit, right? and that tripped up the 0.7 code?
3658 2013-03-12 04:31:47 <bVector> I wanna watch the old chain catch up, like a dograce
3659 2013-03-12 04:31:51 <gmaxwell> EvilPete: it wasn't the sheer size.
3660 2013-03-12 04:31:52 <bVector> can anyone make that happen?
3661 2013-03-12 04:32:00 <petertodd> EvilPete: 1000K limit, and it wasn't size that caused the limit.

3669 2013-03-12 04:32:21 <anachron> Yeah, do be thinking about the PR angle.
3670 2013-03-12 04:32:34 <Xenon481> Slush mentioned that he was going to go back and make sure that his mined blocks DB correctly reflected only mining on the 0.7 fork, so all those miners while slush was still on 0.8.0 will not be paid (not saying they should) for their shares submitted during that timeframe.
3671 2013-03-12 04:32:35 <BlackPrapor> gmaxwell: aren't you guys suppose to test it on test net first?
3672 2013-03-12 04:32:41 <anachron> Probably 80% of the BTC market, or more, hasn't even heard of this situation yet.
3673 2013-03-12 04:32:42 <TradeFortress> BlackPrapor, discussed over and over again

3675 2013-03-12 04:32:43 <rowit_> Definitely. This should really be a win for BTC.
3676 2013-03-12 04:32:47 <anachron> It will have an impact tomorrow methinks.
3677 2013-03-12 04:32:48 <etotheipi_> get a few people to watch slashdot, and when the article shows up, have a few people post comments quickly that dispell the FUD
3678 2013-03-12 04:32:52 <petertodd> etotheipi_: It'd be good to stress that ultimately Bitcoin does have people working on it I think, and that the community can get together and solve problems.
3679 2013-03-12 04:32:54 <xfaust> To those involved in discussion and solution of the problem - thank you.

3685 2013-03-12 04:33:08 <rowit_> Huge!
3686 2013-03-12 04:33:08 <anachron> Ideally, watch a slew of major news sources
3687 2013-03-12 04:33:08 <sipa> BlackPrapor: 0.8 was tested for months on testnet and in other ways
3688 2013-03-12 04:33:10 <gmaxwell> BlackPrapor: sure, it was extensively tested, in ways far beyond the testnet too. We found and fixed several consensus breaking bugs that were introduced in 0.8, but not this one.

3806 2013-03-12 04:41:20 <gmaxwell> We had discussed discouraging mining— even explicitly removing it for 0.8, earlier in the process... but after fixing a number of things it felt solid and it seemed likely that people would ignore the advice.
3807 2013-03-12 04:41:27 <Eleuthria> theymost:  No...you're not one of those 0.3.24 people are you?
3808 2013-03-12 04:41:31 <helo> so most nodes right now are receiving blocks on and maintaining two different chains?

3821 2013-03-12 04:42:09 <randy-waterhouse> what i'm trying to say is if miners were investing better in s/ware upgrades and testing they may not be losing money ... just a suggestion
3822 2013-03-12 04:42:19 <jrmithdobbs> helo: currently .8 is still longest but it'll sort shortly
3823 2013-03-12 04:42:26 <cjd> gmaxwell: IMO one of the disasters of the blockchain design is that any bug in validation is devistating, you just can't be perfect all the time. Seeing one handled well makes me feel a lot better.

3836 2013-03-12 04:43:01 <gmaxwell> cjd: I don't agree— it's an important and fundimental thing. Bitcoin is a consensus system. Nodes trust _no one_ else. That means they must think for themselves.

3858 2013-03-12 04:44:34 <BenderCoin> gmaxwell, you can monetize the decentralized system with a little creativity

3867 2013-03-12 04:45:10 <BenderCoin> gmaxwell, for example create a developer lottery, 99% payout to players and 1% to dev core team.
3868 2013-03-12 04:45:16 <cjd> So maybe people will stop talking about block size limits and demarrage and such things now that we've seen a hard fork in action...

3872 2013-03-12 04:45:33 <epylar> i would assume anyone who's a core dev probably already has a lot of BTC due to being a very early adopter
3873 2013-03-12 04:45:51 <gmaxwell> cjd: this was hardly much of a fork, in fact.
3874 2013-03-12 04:45:53 <egecko> that would probably be a bad assumption too
3875 2013-03-12 04:45:56 <TradeFortress> epylar, but that's an indirect incentive
3876 2013-03-12 04:45:56 <gmaxwell> epylar: bad assumption.

3887 2013-03-12 04:46:36 <gmaxwell> epylar: being around a long time ago just meant the bar for giving away coin was lower. :P

3943 2013-03-12 04:51:05 <BlackPrapor> what's the number of transactions can a 1mb block hold?

3945 2013-03-12 04:51:14 <ligar> or so
3946 2013-03-12 04:51:17 <gmaxwell> ligar: no. The system's rules constrain the block sizes (for a number of good and important reasons). They can't be changed without a risky and long transistion.
3947 2013-03-12 04:51:20 <TradeFortress> ligar, depends on the size

4025 2013-03-12 04:57:45 <TradeFortress> would fuzz testing have prevented this bug?

4028 2013-03-12 04:57:53 <TradeFortress> compare to see if versions handle it differently

4031 2013-03-12 04:58:12 <BlackPrapor> either way, bitcoin can't handle it all
4032 2013-03-12 04:58:16 <perhapstired> is the buggy block on 0.7.x created when two people did a transaction and one of them didn't have enough hard disk space, or was the buggy block created when some guy was mining but didn't have enough hard disk space?

4034 2013-03-12 04:58:19 <helo> TradeFortress: there were tests for the size of blocks, but not the reoranization complexity
4035 2013-03-12 04:58:22 <gmaxwell> TradeFortress: no. We do fuzz test. Perhaps a very specialized kind of fuzztester (that produced valid blocks with random txn, e.g. simulating a whole network) would.
4036 2013-03-12 04:58:38 <TradeFortress> BlackPrapor, Bitcoin does not need to handle everything.
4037 2013-03-12 04:58:49 <perhapstired> Or did I misunderstand?
4038 2013-03-12 04:58:55 <gmaxwell> helo: blocktester actually tests reorgs of (all?) it's blocks. But it never mines one with a ton of input and outputs, just a large maximum size.
4039 2013-03-12 04:58:59 <lianj> perhapstired: yes, nothing of those

4047 2013-03-12 04:59:46 <gmaxwell> BlackPrapor: it's not clear why you think that. Litecoin is almost exactly bitcoin... just with the interblock time reduced and the POW changed. The smaller block time may result in convergence problems when it has more traffic.
4048 2013-03-12 05:00:01 <epylar> This is only a miner issue.

4057 2013-03-12 05:01:25 <gmaxwell> TradeFortress: I have a whole long list of interesting things for altcoins to do... but basically 95% of all altcoins just make some trivial change that takes about 10 minutes to the code and thats it.
4058 2013-03-12 05:01:41 <satrina> TradeFortress: that is debateable, because unless they gather enough support and integration (merchants etc) they are mainly i'll mine and trade for the currency of my choice, hence failing their purpose as a medium of trade

4062 2013-03-12 05:02:40 <nanotube> perhapstired: see first link in topic for summary of what happened.
4063 2013-03-12 05:02:41 <BlackPrapor> gmaxwell: I see it like that, because eventually bitcoin will hit the limit, and then fees will go up. Only businesses will be able to afford it more or less. For business security is more important, and bitcoin being more developed will provide it. Litecoin has faster transactions, therefore its more suitable for consumers

4203 2013-03-12 05:13:52 <phantomcircuit> but im pretty sure that isn't right for either fork
4204 2013-03-12 05:14:02 <satrina> BlackPrapor: ofc ;)
4205 2013-03-12 05:14:12 <TradeFortress> BlackPrapor, nope, but there would have to be inter-PSP trades. predicting the miners fee where is no coinbase is hard.

4211 2013-03-12 05:14:48 <perhapstired> What are some of the serious and not so serious reasons as to why 0.7.x has this 'pathological block', if the issue isn't that it was too large a block?
4212 2013-03-12 05:14:49 <lianj> TradeFortress: coinbase.com doesnt do inter-psp trades

4333 2013-03-12 05:25:50 <RoboTeddy> samurai1200: it won't be an infinitesimal amount of time -- the 0.7 and 0.8 chains will be the same length for maybe ~ 20 minutes or so

4335 2013-03-12 05:26:15 <samurai1200> so how does blockchain.info decide who is main?

4338 2013-03-12 05:26:22 <user11> it is hard to double spent now?

4340 2013-03-12 05:26:33 <RoboTeddy> samurai1200: blockchain.info goes based off which chain is longest I think

4342 2013-03-12 05:26:40 <epylar> if the two chains are equal, there is no longest chain.

4378 2013-03-12 05:29:05 <phantomcircuit> Eleuthria, you need to convince a miner to mine your double spend (not gonna happen)
4379 2013-03-12 05:29:08 <epylar> Yes, the NSA only has to turn on half of its secret video cards to double spend now.
4380 2013-03-12 05:29:12 <phantomcircuit> or mine a block yourself (lol right)
4381 2013-03-12 05:29:28 <BlackPrapor> What happens if the "wrong" chain takes over?
4382 2013-03-12 05:29:30 <phantomcircuit> notice however i say ONE block

4387 2013-03-12 05:29:45 <kanoi> yep ignoring that it can be statistical, the hash rate at the moment on 0.7 is about lahf
4388 2013-03-12 05:29:46 <samurai1200> one day i will understand bitcoin

4390 2013-03-12 05:29:55 <B0g4r7> BlackPrapor: the everyone running < 0.8 stays broken.
4391 2013-03-12 05:30:00 <gmaxwell> Bowjob653: This is not the time or place for whatever you're doing.
4392 2013-03-12 05:30:06 <TradeFortress> BlackPrapor, it is already "taking over"
4393 2013-03-12 05:30:08 <anachron> I hope none of this threatens a v0.8 transaction (a send) I made at 02:20UTC 3/12/2013.

4399 2013-03-12 05:30:34 <BlackPrapor> gmaxwell: well, we rolled back to 0.7, in that case those mining on 0.8 are wrong, i.e. forking, right?
4400 2013-03-12 05:30:36 <anachron> I have 8 confirms on it FWIW.

4414 2013-03-12 05:31:40 <gmaxwell> BlackPrapor: more hashpower has moved to the "0.7" chain, so it will eventually overtake and history will be rewritten.

4446 2013-03-12 05:33:21 <samurai1200> ah, but if nobody is watching....
4447 2013-03-12 05:33:23 <gmaxwell> samurai1200: it's probably confusing to call it "large" it was, but it wasn't specifically the size that broke it. (though large is likely a prereq)

4453 2013-03-12 05:34:06 <gmaxwell> samurai1200: no, more subtle than that. Very likely the sum of inputs created and outputs created. But it's a bit too early to say for sure.

4511 2013-03-12 05:43:09 <[269]gbg> when it goes even, then all miners will contribute to the 'right' chain, both .7 and .8 clients?

4533 2013-03-12 05:45:07 <gmaxwell> about 1% of blocks get forked.
4534 2013-03-12 05:45:14 <samurai1200> ah so the plan is to keep people on 0.7

4536 2013-03-12 05:45:23 <samurai1200> to avoid this fork poss for the time being
4537 2013-03-12 05:45:29 <gmaxwell> samurai1200: also, even with 0.8 miners, it appears the default settings can not produce a trigger block.

4542 2013-03-12 05:45:54 <samurai1200> someone with modded bitcoin forced this?
4543 2013-03-12 05:46:00 <gmaxwell> the miner that produced the trigger block turned the target blocksize from the default 250 to 1000.
4544 2013-03-12 05:46:00 <samurai1200> i mean, unknowingly
4545 2013-03-12 05:46:04 <[269]gbg> so when will the advice be to mine on .8?

4553 2013-03-12 05:46:56 <gmaxwell> though mining on 0.8 will likely not be too horrible once the reorg happens, so long as you haven't upped your blocksize limit.

4570 2013-03-12 05:48:13 <gmaxwell> samurai1200: the _maximum size_ wasn't expanded.
4571 2013-03-12 05:48:22 hi has joined
4572 2013-03-12 05:48:38 <MK`> Yeah, I recommended a friend to your pool yesterday slush
4573 2013-03-12 05:48:42 <hi> ( <> . . <> )
4574 2013-03-12 05:48:47 hi is now known as Guest56517
4575 2013-03-12 05:48:49 <MK`> he was not amused when I messaged him an hour ago telling him to stop mining lol
4576 2013-03-12 05:48:58 <gmaxwell> samurai1200: there is a target blocksize. It defaults to 250k. With txn slow last week due to SD being 90+% of all blocks, Gavin and Mike went around and nagged pools to increase their target sizes.. so its not surprising that someone was running with a big setting. The target size is just a commandline option.
4577 2013-03-12 05:49:01 <LightRider> Just a few days ago, Gavin was advocating everyone jump on 0.8 on the foundation blog.

4579 2013-03-12 05:49:14 <slush> MK`: there wasn't a reason to stop mining
4580 2013-03-12 05:49:24 <slush> it wasn't thing on miner side, just bitcoind update
4581 2013-03-12 05:49:30 <MK`> ah, if he's on your pool then all is well?
4582 2013-03-12 05:49:31 <gmaxwell> Arguably any setting over 500 is exposing undertested parts of bitcoin, because prior to 0.7.x (?) the target size was hard coded at 500.
4583 2013-03-12 05:49:36 <samurai1200> gmaxwell: AH thats the puzzle piece i was missing. i get it now.
4584 2013-03-12 05:49:59 <samurai1200> in retrospect we should have just dealt with the SDice traffic for a while?
4585 2013-03-12 05:50:22 <samurai1200> or was the fork the only thing to get us to look at the issue
4586 2013-03-12 05:50:22 <SomeoneWeird> do we know what caused he chain to fork?

4589 2013-03-12 05:50:30 <BlueMatt> gmaxwell: can I cheat and make all the scriptPubKeys being spent OP_TRUE instead of requiring checksigs?
4590 2013-03-12 05:50:31 <gmaxwell> samurai1200: this issue would have existed either way. Though maybe we would have found it on testnet eventually or with the next round of blocktester improvements.
4591 2013-03-12 05:50:36 <EvilPete> basically, the slush pool generated a larger block (within protocol limits) and the old 0.7 bitcoind stuff tripped over its bdb usage and dropped it, causing the fork.

4664 2013-03-12 06:02:43 <Xenon481> guest892735: We are relatively close enough to a difficulty change and have spent enough time significantly above the difficulty that it is likely that even this temporary dip in effective hashing power will not bring the expected next difficulty below the current difficulty.

4834 2013-03-12 06:16:31 <MagicalTux> because most websites are not accepting deposits
4835 2013-03-12 06:16:36 <keystroke> why does it say it is BTC guild if it is not?

4849 2013-03-12 06:18:25 <cjd> does satoshidice's micropayment trick have any security properties at all or is it just for novelty?

4854 2013-03-12 06:18:49 <randy-waterhouse> satoshiDICE broke bitcoin?
4855 2013-03-12 06:18:52 <Sydna> sawtooth: presumably any fork longer than one or two blocks is problematic
4856 2013-03-12 06:19:18 <MagicalTux> randy-waterhouse: slush did, it seems
4857 2013-03-12 06:19:20 <samurai1200> 1 block fork = yellow
4858 2013-03-12 06:19:22 <samurai1200> 2 block fork = red

4954 2013-03-12 06:25:35 <ThiagoCMC> good
4955 2013-03-12 06:25:37 <epylar> that seems prudent
4956 2013-03-12 06:25:38 <gmaxwell> MagicalTux: Thats reasonable.
4957 2013-03-12 06:25:49 <keystroke> there can only be one chain now, right?

4965 2013-03-12 06:26:16 <epylar> yeah, the wrong one won't advance any more.
4966 2013-03-12 06:26:18 <MagicalTux> keystroke: better waiting a bit
4967 2013-03-12 06:26:23 <epylar> because the right one is compatible with 0.7 and 0.8

4969 2013-03-12 06:26:36 <MagicalTux> [15:26:02] <epylar> yeah, the wrong one won't advance any more. <- technically it could if someone wanted to
4970 2013-03-12 06:26:46 <keystroke> i agree that is a good policy MagicalTux but what is the technical reason out of curiosity?
4971 2013-03-12 06:26:47 <epylar> that's true.
4972 2013-03-12 06:26:48 <nanotube> yea better safe

4974 2013-03-12 06:26:52 <Sydna> there's a very competent security researcher poking through bitcoin-qt at the moment; should someone from the core team reach out to her? — https://twitter.com/0xabad1dea/status/311329145458130946

4999 2013-03-12 06:28:54 <blah> this is probably a stupid question. forgive me. is difficulty per chain? if so, is it possible for someone to mine a huge number of blocks in the 0.8 chain after it falls?

5130 2013-03-12 06:43:01 <sawtooth> I wonder if mining pools should build in failsafes of some kind. Obviously there shouldn't be a way to push arbitrary updates to them, but maybe there should be a way to automatically rollback to previous versions (perhaps triggered by an alert)
5131 2013-03-12 06:43:05 <Phraust> indeed.  that was fucking phenomenal.

5143 2013-03-12 06:44:30 <keystroke> we at least need to get some amphetamine into the hands of devs in case these things run late into the night...

5145 2013-03-12 06:44:38 <Eleuthria> If BTC Guild kept on 0.8, this could've taken a long time to fix
5146 2013-03-12 06:44:43 <dgriffi> I made a pull request for a rather simple patch a few days ago.  is there anyone in here with pull on the project who can check it out?
5147 2013-03-12 06:44:47 <keystroke> yea BTC Guild switch is what did it
5148 2013-03-12 06:45:19 <anachron> It was fortuitous that this happened "after market hours" also, so that it's all resolved before tomorrow / today's trading gets going.
5149 2013-03-12 06:45:20 <EvilPete> Eleuthria: you can probably restart that merged miner node now..

5161 2013-03-12 06:46:55 <dgriffi> my patch is to make the "copy address to clipboard" button also copy to the classic X11 clipboard so you can do highlight and middle click pasting.
5162 2013-03-12 06:46:57 <moore_> so has any one looked in to the source of transactions like this one in the "bad" block: http://blockchain.info/tx/9867370fede3b646fe6122c7f25f6b822bc143f0d780dbb9cd6ccf5626f692cc

5164 2013-03-12 06:47:19 <jrmithdobbs> no they should fix themselves
5165 2013-03-12 06:47:26 <moore_> I have been wondering if some one caused this problem intentionally
5166 2013-03-12 06:47:28 <epylar> clients that tried to send transactions to a losing chain will resubmit them automatically

5175 2013-03-12 06:48:22 <Sydna> doesn't block chain.info have a way of making trees of TX?

5324 2013-03-12 07:06:57 <molec> kanoi, had the same thought
5325 2013-03-12 07:06:57 <Eleuthria> Kireji:  If you had any 0.8 blocks mined on your bitcoind, it will show them as orphans now.
5326 2013-03-12 07:07:17 EvanR has joined
5327 2013-03-12 07:07:19 <Kireji> not mined - I understand those will orphan
5328 2013-03-12 07:07:20 <Eleuthria> Kireji:  Luckily, bitcoin doesn't allow you to spend mined blocks right away, so this fork didn't allow for any blocks mined during the fork to actually be used to fund payments
5329 2013-03-12 07:07:23 <EvanR> so what exactly do miners have to do?
5330 2013-03-12 07:07:25 <ciphermonk> I think we have been very lucky with this issue
5331 2013-03-12 07:07:42 <ThiagoCMC> agree

5333 2013-03-12 07:07:52 <RoboTeddy> grau: fair point. Thanks for the new/fundamentally different implementation, congrats on it handling the reorg
5334 2013-03-12 07:07:53 <oldbushie> I'm just shocked that BTC price bounced back so quickly
5335 2013-03-12 07:07:57 <MK`> Lucky Eleuthria wasn't feeling rebellious, perhaps
5336 2013-03-12 07:08:00 <Eleuthria> EvanR:  If you solo mine/p2pool mine, 0.7 is the preferred bitcoind right now.
5337 2013-03-12 07:08:09 <MK`> aside from that, just a lot of hard work :P
5338 2013-03-12 07:08:25 <Kireji> confirmed blocks on the other fork - will 0.8 clients have shared and accepted blocks on the now defunct blockchain?

5342 2013-03-12 07:08:58 <phantomcircuit> that's the head of the 0.7 chain right
5343 2013-03-12 07:09:00 <Eleuthria> Kireji:  Any block found on the forked chain is now orphaned (unspendable)
5344 2013-03-12 07:09:04 <phantomcircuit> gmaxwell, ^
5345 2013-03-12 07:09:05 <grau> RoboTeddy: Thanks a lot. I think I will call it beta now. It was the most elaborate test case until know....

5347 2013-03-12 07:09:32 <phantomcircuit> nvm it is
5348 2013-03-12 07:09:37 <Kireji> how many hours/blocks went by from the fork to when 0.7 chain passed 0.8?
5349 2013-03-12 07:09:48 <RoboTeddy> Kireji: 25 blocks I think
5350 2013-03-12 07:09:51 <kanoi> 6 or 7

5355 2013-03-12 07:10:14 <Eleuthria> That's a beautiful chart
5356 2013-03-12 07:10:42 <molec> how many tx are in the orphaned chain that are not in the longest? any double spends?
5357 2013-03-12 07:10:42 <Kireji> Eleuthria: which chart?

5371 2013-03-12 07:12:33 <RoboTeddy> molec asked a good question; did anyone manage to double-spend?

5557 2013-03-12 07:36:15 <tockitj> is there a mining test network where x.y is tested before being sent to public ?

5564 2013-03-12 07:37:34 <tockitj> do miners have monetary incentive to be in testnet ?
5565 2013-03-12 07:37:40 <gmaxwell> tockitj: yes, and of course as single nodes on the production network too. (where they can't do serious harm)
5566 2013-03-12 07:38:06 <gmaxwell> tockitj: testnet is insanely cheap to mine. You can cpumine it compfortably.

5571 2013-03-12 07:38:48 <gmaxwell> Unfortuantely it's hard to get anyone but developers and miners to use it.  I've tried to get popular services to setup their preproduction sites on it, both to test them and generate more traffic than the developers can think of... and while some agree, none do it.
5572 2013-03-12 07:39:03 <Wayward> Maybe new releases should go through a more vigorous testing session, where they are HARD CODED to testnet only

5575 2013-03-12 07:39:23 <gmaxwell> SD asked for 1000 BTC when they were asked to put a copy of SD on testnet. (though this was back when BTC was somewhat cheaper)
5576 2013-03-12 07:39:47 <comboy> is there any way to get this bitcoin alert message from command line?
5577 2013-03-12 07:39:50 <lianj> tockitj: the issue showed up with a block that prolly never happened in testnet in this case
5578 2013-03-12 07:39:52 <MK`> would this issue have appeared on testnet? Aren't the blocks mined there too fast?

5586 2013-03-12 07:40:50 <Wayward> tockitj: Remember.  The bug was not in 0.8.  The bug is exhibited by OLDer versions; 0.7 and earlier.
5587 2013-03-12 07:40:57 <tockitj> hmmz.. how many nodes are there on testnet now ?
5588 2013-03-12 07:41:00 <gmaxwell> Wayward: this can be tested. And we found bugs of that kind during the development of 0.8 and fixed them.
5589 2013-03-12 07:41:06 <Wayward> 0.8 is actually the GOOD worker.
5590 2013-03-12 07:41:09 <gmaxwell> And testnet consists of multiple versions.

5600 2013-03-12 07:42:03 <tockitj> miners on testnet should have some kind of incentive of being there imho

5606 2013-03-12 07:42:22 <gmaxwell> tockitj: huh? testnet gets mined just fine as it is.
5607 2013-03-12 07:42:24 <MC-Droid> gmaxwell so was it actual undocumented behavior of bdb?
5608 2013-03-12 07:42:28 <Wayward> McKay: Software QA
5609 2013-03-12 07:42:37 <MC-Droid> or something the dev team missed
5610 2013-03-12 07:42:45 <tockitj> gmaxwell, how many nodes ?
5611 2013-03-12 07:42:53 <McKay> Wayward: I highly doubt that would've helped to catch this issue beforehand
5612 2013-03-12 07:42:59 <gmaxwell> tockitj: there isn't any easy way to count.

5614 2013-03-12 07:43:20 <tockitj> there is way much less i think than in production
5615 2013-03-12 07:43:22 <Wayward> McKay: I will agree, simply because it depended on the presence of older clients, which are not as likely found on tesnet
5616 2013-03-12 07:43:32 <McKay> Even if there was some incentive to mine on testnet, it'll never match the traffic of the realnet
5617 2013-03-12 07:43:38 <gmaxwell> Wayward: testnet has a bunch of them.
5618 2013-03-12 07:43:44 <McKay> And 0.8 was out for a full month before this actually happened
5619 2013-03-12 07:43:51 <gmaxwell> MC-Droid: it has the same blockrate as realnet.
5620 2013-03-12 07:44:00 <gmaxwell> mckay
5621 2013-03-12 07:44:01 <Wayward> McKay: Remember, the 0.8 is not the bad guy; it's the habitual behavior of people using old software that is to blame.
5622 2013-03-12 07:44:03 <McKay> Full-ish month, anyway
5623 2013-03-12 07:44:06 intx has joined
5624 2013-03-12 07:44:13 <McKay> Right, 0.8 is actually the "correct" one
5625 2013-03-12 07:44:21 <jgarzik> MC-Droid: Technically speaking, any bug is something the dev team missed!
5626 2013-03-12 07:44:23 <McKay> My point is that I highly doubt this would have been caught on testnet even if it was active
5627 2013-03-12 07:44:28 <gmaxwell> Wayward: no, thats not realistic. 0.8 is less than a month old. It would be negiligant to pain rush high value services onto 0.8.
5628 2013-03-12 07:44:29 <ciphermonk> Whats the plan to move on to 0.8 now in the future for mining?
5629 2013-03-12 07:44:34 <bVector> Wayward: what if everyone switched to .8 and there was an issue that made all versions just halt in their tracks
5630 2013-03-12 07:44:42 <tockitj> McKay, well that would depend on type of incentive ~1% of prod traffic would be enough to get rock solid i think
5631 2013-03-12 07:44:44 <gmaxwell> mckay: we did catch other similar issues. Just not this one.
5632 2013-03-12 07:45:01 <McKay> Right, I suppose my wording wasn't good enough
5633 2013-03-12 07:45:09 <Wayward> bVector: I didn't understand your statement.
5634 2013-03-12 07:45:13 <McKay> I'm not saying that testnet in itself is useless or that activity on it is pointless
5635 2013-03-12 07:45:14 <MC-Droid> well dont feel too bad, the damage control was exemplary
5636 2013-03-12 07:45:20 <tockitj> jgarzik, nah - its not dev teams fault.. its just about clever testing

5644 2013-03-12 07:45:53 <bVector> there were two baskets
5645 2013-03-12 07:46:00 <bVector> eggs were shuffled around
5646 2013-03-12 07:46:01 <gmaxwell> tockitj: there are an absolute minimum of 42 testnet nodes, but probably more like 2-3x that.
5647 2013-03-12 07:46:05 <Wayward> bVector: Having a fork is having a fork.  you will have a fork if everyone isn't on the same page.
5648 2013-03-12 07:46:16 <bVector> right, but that only prevents a fork

5652 2013-03-12 07:46:29 <ciphermonk> I agree, these issues are very hard to predict and it's hard to write unit tests to catch them beforehand. The more testers and code reviews we have, the better
5653 2013-03-12 07:46:36 <gmaxwell> tockitj: no, two would be enough to see this.

5656 2013-03-12 07:47:04 <tockitj> two are definitely not enough
5657 2013-03-12 07:47:08 <McKay> How long was 0.8 tested on testnet bug-free before release?
5658 2013-03-12 07:47:10 <gmaxwell> For example, one time I reorged over 2500 blocks on testnet.

5661 2013-03-12 07:47:28 <Wayward> Anyway:  If any of you guys are writing an article for CNN Money, please report that the issue was with "the tendancy of people to neglect updating their software."
5662 2013-03-12 07:47:36 <phantomcircuit> gmaxwell, i can never get testnet to actually run
5663 2013-03-12 07:47:38 <gmaxwell> McKay: or at least free of chain splitting related bugs.
5664 2013-03-12 07:47:40 <phantomcircuit> it never finds a peer
5665 2013-03-12 07:47:44 <gwillen> tockitj: two would be plenty -- you just need one to be notably faster than the other, and the faster one running 0.8
5666 2013-03-12 07:47:44 <McKay> Oh really? That's... quite a bit more than I'd have thought

5670 2013-03-12 07:47:57 <gmaxwell> phantomcircuit: testnet has dnsseeds now, so perhaps your luck would be better.
5671 2013-03-12 07:47:59 <gwillen> tockitj: then the test chain would fork, with the faster one making a long chain and the slower one making a short chain

5673 2013-03-12 07:48:09 <bVector> stating that its about software upgrades is a gross misrepresentation of the problem
5674 2013-03-12 07:48:20 <gwillen> tockitj: oh, and you'd need to reproduce the block that triggered the problem in the first place
5675 2013-03-12 07:48:32 <tockitj> gwillen, meh.. that is in the case you know of the bug in advance.. but real testenv has to account for much more
5676 2013-03-12 07:48:33 <phantomcircuit> gmaxwell, yeah i see it does work now
5677 2013-03-12 07:48:35 <bVector> there are always going to be a mix of versions on the network

5683 2013-03-12 07:49:07 <McKay> Would it be possible for the dev team to create their own testnet for testing purposes and hammer it with transactions?
5684 2013-03-12 07:49:09 <Wayward> gwillen: If everyone were using 0.8 software, noone would have noticed.
5685 2013-03-12 07:49:11 <bVector> what if 100% were on .8?
5686 2013-03-12 07:49:12 <gwillen> Wayward: this kind of incompatible change can only be made safely with advance notice and 100% support
5687 2013-03-12 07:49:14 <MK`> so, testnet needs more legit users?
5688 2013-03-12 07:49:22 <phantomcircuit> McKay, that's what the testnet is...
5689 2013-03-12 07:49:31 <gwillen> Wayward: 100% usage is not realistic, and even a single user less than 100% would have been a problem
5690 2013-03-12 07:49:38 <LightRider> I blame the leveldb devs for not conforming to bdb specifications.
5691 2013-03-12 07:49:40 <tockitj> McKay, no! it needs to be as realistic as possible - with real-miners if possible
5692 2013-03-12 07:49:41 <Wayward> gwillen: People using 0.3 cannot use 0.3
5693 2013-03-12 07:49:47 <McKay> phantomcircuit: I don't mean *the* testnet, I mean a private one
5694 2013-03-12 07:49:53 <McKay> One that's free of abusive transactions

5702 2013-03-12 20:55:05 <gmaxwell> wizkid057: are they spinning disks? well. two minutes sounds high but at current block sizes.. <0.8 is darn slow.. why do you think 0.8 got deployed so cray fast.
5703 2013-03-12 20:55:05 <gmaxwell> tre-spective: yes.
5704 2013-03-12 20:55:07 <gmaxwell> tre-spective: not clear if anyone lost any money as a result however.

5749 2013-03-12 21:05:41 <gmaxwell> lianj: "still mining on .8" you mean mining on the chain we're calling .8, right?

5751 2013-03-12 21:06:07 <gmaxwell> It's fine to mine on 0.8 now, since the pre-0.8 accepted chain is the longest one.

5776 2013-03-12 21:09:53 <jaakkos> how about 1) putting a timer to 0-confirmed transactions, that they get deleted from mempools after several days/weeks/... or so, and 2) spreading mempool to joining nodes

5851 2013-03-12 21:23:48 <amiller> ymirhotfoot, this is my unpublished bitcoin paper https://socrates1024.s3.amazonaws.com/consensus.pdf

5854 2013-03-12 21:24:08 <jaakkos> does the reference client test suite not test the client with big blocks? if it does, why was the fork problem not caught?

5858 2013-03-12 21:24:31 <jaakkos> specifially, the bdb problem
5859 2013-03-12 21:24:34 <gmaxwell> jaakkos: sure it does. Because being big isn't enough.
5860 2013-03-12 21:24:37 <jaakkos> i think i need to study the bdb problem a bit
5861 2013-03-12 21:24:38 <amiller> i don't care much if it circulates its just i think it's kinda lame i submitted it to a big persons conference and they said (rightfully) that it doesn't say anything new compared to the whitepaper (truly it does not, it just formalizes what's in the satoshi whitepaper) and it leaves out everything about how the incentives work
5862 2013-03-12 21:25:56 <twixed> I am a french bitcoin user (for more than a year), and I found the lack of content in the french version of the bitcoin.it forum saddening.
5863 2013-03-12 21:26:05 <gmaxwell> jaakkos: locks are proportional to transactions modified in the tx index, not the size of the block.

5885 2013-03-12 21:29:56 <molec> gmaxwell, in other words: didn't the 0.7-miners who ran uninterruptedly have the tx and shouldn't they have mined a block at some point including it? Or was 0.7-miners a really small priority right before the split?
5886 2013-03-12 21:29:56 <gmaxwell> amiller: if you're going to give up on publishing it elsewhere, I'd like to include your paper as technical information on bitcoin.org eventually.

5889 2013-03-12 21:30:36 <etotheipi_> molec: at that point it was a race...
5890 2013-03-12 21:30:47 <Luke-Jr> molec: it's not like he had anything to lose by trying..
5891 2013-03-12 21:30:47 <gmaxwell> amiller: I think your paper only fails to describe things beyond the whitepaper iff you already accept that bitcoin works. :)
5892 2013-03-12 21:31:02 <etotheipi_> the old un-restarted nodes were mining the first spend, the restarted nodes were mining the second-spend
5893 2013-03-12 21:31:06 <gmaxwell> molec: they probably did but they had fairly low hashpower.
5894 2013-03-12 21:31:15 grau has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
5895 2013-03-12 21:31:21 <gmaxwell> molec: and by then it was too late and it had been conflicted by the switching miners that had a LOT of hashpower.

5898 2013-03-12 21:31:48 <coinspinner_> How many transactions/kb does the mempool of bitcoind hold before it starts flushing out old/unconfirmed transactions?
5899 2013-03-12 21:31:48 <gmaxwell> molec: e.g. 0.7 miners had 10% hashpower. Then some 0.8 miners (60% hashpower) switched.
5900 2013-03-12 21:32:00 i2pRelay has joined
5901 2013-03-12 21:32:07 <twixed> Is the header "669 articles. Anti-spam protection from BitcoinPayment" the only notice for the "donation" requirement or did I missed it elsewhere ?
5902 2013-03-12 21:32:07 <gmaxwell> coinspinner_: it's unbounded, except by the host running out of memory.
5903 2013-03-12 21:32:10 <molec> "<gmaxwell> molec: and the ones who converted had most of the hashpower." <- I don't quite understand why the 0.8 chain was "chosen", then.
5904 2013-03-12 21:32:50 <helo> molec: the 0.7 chain is valid for 0.8, but not vice-versa. so the 0.8 chain was abandoned
5905 2013-03-12 21:32:58 <ymirhotfoot> amiller: If the paper rightly formalizes part of the Bitcoin system, then it is worthwhile.  Clearly one does not have to include the incentives to lay out the 'anti-double spending by means of a crypto hardened public ledger' part of the system.
5906 2013-03-12 21:33:05 <molec> "<gmaxwell> molec: e.g. 0.7 miners had 10% hashpower. Then some 0.8 miners (60% hashpower) switched." <- this would be a possible explanation. the "original 0.7" miners who still had the tx simply didn't find a block
5907 2013-03-12 21:33:08 <K1773R> @devs/all so, how did you sleep after all this happend (i went to sleep while the chain was forked, i was sleeping horrible)
5908 2013-03-12 21:33:32 Webbah_ has quit (Quit: Webbah_)
5909 2013-03-12 21:33:36 <gmaxwell> molec: right, they were slow compared to the converting miners so the converting miners beat them to a block.
5910 2013-03-12 21:33:38 <TheSeven> flicking through the last screens of log, does this chatter mean that there was actually a transaction reversal (beyond generation transactions)?
5911 2013-03-12 21:33:44 <TD> indeed
5912 2013-03-12 21:33:44 <sipa> K1773R: i went to sleep when the 0.7 chain was catching up :)
5913 2013-03-12 21:33:53 <coinspinner_> gmaxwell: So basically if the number of tx grows significantly bitcoind will max out my computer?
5914 2013-03-12 21:33:54 <gwillen> what volume of claimed double-spends have we seen from the fork?
5915 2013-03-12 21:33:58 <TD> it was an non-malicious guy who wanted to experiment
5916 2013-03-12 21:34:05 <helo> vig
5917 2013-03-12 21:34:06 <gmaxwell> TheSeven: there are ~400 txn in the stub not in the main.
5918 2013-03-12 21:34:07 <TD> gwillen: 1 if you ignore some random SD transactions
5919 2013-03-12 21:34:12 <TheSeven> ouch
5920 2013-03-12 21:34:15 <gmaxwell> including a $10,000 expirement.
5921 2013-03-12 21:34:19 <gwillen> TD: and ignore them I will! How big a transaction was it?
5922 2013-03-12 21:34:23 <TheSeven> how many of them are double spent?
5923 2013-03-12 21:34:25 <TD> heh
5924 2013-03-12 21:34:36 <gmaxwell> TD: no, more than one without the SD txn. e.g. phantomcircuit was pointing to the btc-e one.
5925 2013-03-12 21:34:39 <K1773R> sipa: im happy the problem was resolved so fast.
5926 2013-03-12 21:34:42 <sipa> TheSeven: there was a recent post on the bitcoin-dev mailing list about this
5927 2013-03-12 21:34:45 <sipa> K1773R: me too :D

5931 2013-03-12 21:35:14 <molec> gmaxwell, ok. I kind-of understand the rationale of not forcing the 10% 0.7-miners to upgrade... but in the light of this double-spend, it might've been the better option, or am I missing something yet?
5932 2013-03-12 21:35:32 <gwillen> molec: there was double-spend potential whichever direction it went
5933 2013-03-12 21:35:42 <TheSeven> so what is the reason why those 400 txns didn't get into the main chain? sufficient SD spam pushing them out? or something completely different?
5934 2013-03-12 21:35:46 zooko` is now known as zooko
5935 2013-03-12 21:35:58 <coinspinner_> gmaxwell: So basically if the number of tx grows significantly bitcoind will max out the mem of my computer?
5936 2013-03-12 21:36:12 <gwillen> molec: in some ways, the opposite switch would have increased the double-spend potential, because any merchant running 0.7 could then have been double-spent against for an indefinite period, until they found out and upgraded
5937 2013-03-12 21:36:22 <sipa> coinspinner_: well, every unspent coin can only be spent once
5938 2013-03-12 21:36:27 <gwillen> molec: whereas the switch that was done made double-spends impossible again once the chains remerged
5939 2013-03-12 21:36:29 <K1773R> sipa: i especially liked what happend -> problem found -> devs (not only coredevs) create a hive-mind to resolve it ignoring all the emotions about the others
5940 2013-03-12 21:36:54 <K1773R> sipa: well, bad emotions so you couldnt work together to be precise...
5941 2013-03-12 21:37:09 <molec> gwillen, I see. thanks for the explanation.
5942 2013-03-12 21:37:10 <sipa> coinspinner_: though the mempool can contain transactions that spend outputs from other mempool txn
5943 2013-03-12 21:37:15 <gwillen> molec: no problem
5944 2013-03-12 21:37:41 <gmaxwell> coinspinner_: if it grows by a factor of 1000 to a million txn then maybe it would be using 100MB ram.
5945 2013-03-12 21:37:55 <gmaxwell> or whatever... it's not a _current_ concern.
5946 2013-03-12 21:38:09 skinnkavaj has joined
5947 2013-03-12 21:38:41 <devrandom> so it sounds like there should be an alert mechanism for merchants to notice forks... perhaps an RPC call?

5950 2013-03-12 21:38:55 <gmaxwell> devrandom: you mean running getinfo and seeing the error line?
5951 2013-03-12 21:39:06 i2pRelay has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
5952 2013-03-12 21:39:16 <gwillen> gmaxwell: was there an error for people on 0.8, who were not rejecting any blocks?
5953 2013-03-12 21:39:18 <devrandom> 0.8 didn't get the error line
5954 2013-03-12 21:39:22 <K1773R> devrandom: there is and its being triggered
5955 2013-03-12 21:39:25 <coinspinner_> sipa, gmaxwell: So if I have enough memory and a tx for some reason does not confirm, let say due to insifficient block space, then my tx will stay in mempool indefinitely, or until bitcoind is restarted

5958 2013-03-12 21:40:52 <K1773R> devrandom: 0.8 has/had it, warning ppls to not mine with 0.8 because of a forked chain
5959 2013-03-12 21:41:00 <skinnkavaj> so first double spending happened yesterday https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=152348.0
5960 2013-03-12 21:41:13 <gwillen> K1773R: that was a manually-issued alert, though
5961 2013-03-12 21:41:20 <devrandom> gmaxwell: the error line is only when an invalid block is seen with higher work...  that wouldn't trigger on permissive side of hardfork, right?
5962 2013-03-12 21:41:26 <jgarzik> forum troll Blowfeld gets it right, "I don't think it is possible to raise the fees in a way that would make SD unprofitable, without raising the fees in a way that makes bitcoin unprofitable for many other economic purposes."   https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=149668.msg1617500#msg1617500
5963 2013-03-12 21:41:29 <gmaxwell> gwillen: they got the alert.
5964 2013-03-12 21:41:46 <sipa> gmaxwell: i think 300-400 bytes per transaction is more correct
5965 2013-03-12 21:41:48 <gwillen> gmaxwell: I don't think devrandom is asking about a manually-issued alert, though
5966 2013-03-12 21:42:00 <jgarzik> skinnkavaj: The first double spending happened long ago
5967 2013-03-12 21:42:17 <gwillen> it would be nice -- if there isn't already -- for someone to be able to see that there was a second chain forming, of blocks that are not ancesstors of their own chain
5968 2013-03-12 21:42:20 <devrandom> we can't always depend on devs noticing before 6 blocks
5969 2013-03-12 21:42:20 <jgarzik> skinnkavaj: Foolish vendors that accept zero-confirmation transactions have been hit, including SatoshiDICE
5970 2013-03-12 21:42:26 <gmaxwell> devrandom: correct.
5971 2013-03-12 21:42:38 <gmaxwell> devrandom: you don't ever hear about other forks, sadly, not even on the shorter side.
5972 2013-03-12 21:42:48 <gmaxwell> devrandom: if your peers are all on the same fork as you— you hear nothing.
5973 2013-03-12 21:43:07 <BTCOxygen> Is Tyco on IRC?
5974 2013-03-12 21:43:16 <BTCOxygen> Deepbit mining on wrong chain
5975 2013-03-12 21:43:17 <sipa> [Tycho] ?
5976 2013-03-12 21:43:17 <gwillen> gmaxwell: but presuming they aren't, your client will see those blocks, yes? And could in theory warn you about them?
5977 2013-03-12 21:43:20 <devrandom> gmaxwell: maybe it's worth alerting on seeing peers on forks with significant work
5978 2013-03-12 21:43:31 <gwillen> ==
5979 2013-03-12 21:43:34 <gavinandresen> devrandom: -alertnotify=command is an idea I'd actually been meaning to implement....
5980 2013-03-12 21:43:49 <[Tycho]> I'm investigating the issue.
5981 2013-03-12 21:43:53 <devrandom> merchants that care would be connected to many peers, so they should get enough short-fork peers
5982 2013-03-12 21:43:59 <BTCOxygen> [Tycho]: ping
5983 2013-03-12 21:44:02 <gmaxwell> devrandom: well 1-2 deep forks happen all the time.
5984 2013-03-12 21:44:02 <BTCOxygen> [Tycho]: you here?
5985 2013-03-12 21:44:11 <gmaxwell> BTCOxygen: no, he types without being here.
5986 2013-03-12 21:44:11 <sipa> BTCOxygen: i think he's aware of the problem
5987 2013-03-12 21:44:13 <[Tycho]> Don't know how this affected my nodes even if they are pre-0.8
5988 2013-03-12 21:44:16 <gwillen> gmaxwell: if a fork gets to 5, I think that's a point at which to definitely worry
5989 2013-03-12 21:44:19 PlantMan has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
5990 2013-03-12 21:44:24 <devrandom> gmaxwell: right, so maybe only notify on 4+
5991 2013-03-12 21:44:32 <sipa> [Tycho]: what code are they based on?
5992 2013-03-12 21:44:43 <devrandom> and maybe go to failsafe on 6+, requiring manual intervention
5993 2013-03-12 21:44:43 <gwillen> since 5 means that in one more block, people on the fork may be confirming txns you aren't seeing
5994 2013-03-12 21:44:46 <[Tycho]> I think about 0.3+
5995 2013-03-12 21:45:02 <[Tycho]> Maybe 0.3.4 or something like that
5996 2013-03-12 21:45:10 <gwillen> devrandom: well, there is DoS potential if everyone in the world goes failsafe just because some asshole is mining off-chain blocks
5997 2013-03-12 21:45:11 <sipa> i know it's at least 0.3.19
5998 2013-03-12 21:45:15 <gwillen> devrandom: which any asshole could do
5999 2013-03-12 21:45:23 <BTCOxygen> [Tycho]: PM?
6000 2013-03-12 21:45:24 <gmaxwell> [Tycho]: old nodes (prior to 0.6) had problems with big reorgs that removed a bunch of transactions, the reorg would fail.
6001 2013-03-12 21:45:41 <gwillen> devrandom: but I agree with the basic idea
6002 2013-03-12 21:45:50 <[Tycho]> But there shouldn't be a reorg if I was on a "right" branch ?
6003 2013-03-12 21:46:06 <sipa> [Tycho]: unless you forked off even earlier than most
6004 2013-03-12 21:46:09 <gmaxwell> devrandom: simply telling you what it knows would be helpful, without the risk of "failsafe"
6005 2013-03-12 21:46:22 <devrandom> gwillen: only very few peers would go onto that fork if it's just a random person trying to DoS... (assuming no sybil attack)
6006 2013-03-12 21:46:36 <gmaxwell> devrandom: because sybil attacks are hard? :P
6007 2013-03-12 21:46:47 <BTCOxygen> [Tycho]: Once you finish with the pool please PM me
6008 2013-03-12 21:46:50 <phantomcircuit> gmaxwell, suuure they are
6009 2013-03-12 21:46:54 <gwillen> I don't know what sort of alerting mechanisms the major merchants have
6010 2013-03-12 21:46:56 i2pRelay has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
6011 2013-03-12 21:47:00 <devrandom> gmaxwell: true... people can just implement some kind of internal alert that pages someone
6012 2013-03-12 21:47:04 <gwillen> but seeing a fork should definitely be something they can alert on
6013 2013-03-12 21:47:04 <Luke-Jr> [Tycho]: likely a reorg failure
6014 2013-03-12 21:47:05 <phantomcircuit> oh

6019 2013-03-12 21:47:30 <coinspinner_> sipa, gmaxwell: If bitcoind has enough memory and a tx for some reason does not confirm, then the tx will stay in mempool indefinitely (or until bitcoind is restarted)

6029 2013-03-12 21:48:13 <Luke-Jr> [Tycho]: what next one?
6030 2013-03-12 21:48:23 <jgarzik> huh
6031 2013-03-12 21:48:24 <gmaxwell> Luke-Jr: now its such a large reorg I'm not sure about that. might be worth trying.
6032 2013-03-12 21:48:35 <jgarzik> another example of mempool-on-startup being useful to miners: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=152348.msg1617466#msg1617466

6034 2013-03-12 21:48:51 <jgarzik> again, I ponder a -mempool-on-startup command line flag

6056 2013-03-12 21:51:27 <gmaxwell> jgarzik: I feel kinda bad that I didn't suggest that slush do a manual mempool graft. It's not hard to do.

6058 2013-03-12 21:51:29 <molec> jgarzic, would a saved mempool have helped at all? see: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=152348.msg1617529#msg1617529

6061 2013-03-12 21:51:51 <molec> jgarzik, or what would "-mempool-on-startup" do?

6064 2013-03-12 21:52:00 <jgarzik> I think miners should grab mempool on startup, to maximize fees

6067 2013-03-12 21:52:37 <jgarzik> but ah well, nobody cares with tiny fees and block subsidy
6068 2013-03-12 21:52:46 <gmaxwell> jgarzik: I agree, and not just for that— to prevent doublespends. But we _must_ solve the immortal irreplacable txn fist. :P
6069 2013-03-12 21:52:59 <coinspinner_> sipa, gmaxwell: Wouldn't that allow me to broadcast a long chain of tx that link to a yet-to-be-seen tx and flood the mempool of connected nodes?
6070 2013-03-12 21:52:59 <gmaxwell> first too
6071 2013-03-12 21:53:10 <molec> jgarzik, what do you mean by "grab mempool"? from where?
6072 2013-03-12 21:53:24 <gwillen> gmaxwell: will a txn get kicked out of the mempool if it becomes impossible, because the inputs get spent elsewhere?

6079 2013-03-12 21:54:21 <gwillen> It occurred to me at some point that a miner could provide a service of accepting, out-of-band, replacements for stuck transactions
6080 2013-03-12 21:54:25 <gwillen> and charge a bit extra for it
6081 2013-03-12 21:54:35 <gwillen> since there's no rule that the txn has to go through the mempool before it hits a block

6087 2013-03-12 21:55:37 <gwillen> sipa: well, the case I had in mind was sending a transaction with an inadequate fee, and having it get stuck in the tubes, so to speak
6088 2013-03-12 21:55:42 <gmaxwell> gwillen: in network replacement would be better and more transparent.
6089 2013-03-12 21:55:48 <gwillen> gmaxwell: definitely agree.
6090 2013-03-12 21:56:32 <coinspinner_> spia: The only prevention I can imagine against a flood of tx linking to yet-to-be-seen tx is to have an upper limit of those kind of transactions. Hmm.. time for me to dive into the code
6091 2013-03-12 21:56:43 <gmaxwell> it's not technically hard.. if a conflicting txn has greater fee (by some threshold) and pays at least as much to all the original outputs from all conflicted txn, AND the conflict has no children... then accept the replacement.

6095 2013-03-12 21:57:58 <gwillen> gmaxwell: yeah, I certainly hope something of that nature gets in soon
6096 2013-03-12 21:57:59 <sipa> the mempool only contains fully validated transactions

6101 2013-03-12 21:59:08 <coinspinner_> sipa:no, I am talking about unconfirmed tx. I would guess that mempool accepts a tx that links to another unconfirmed tx, and even that it would accept a tx that links to a tx that it hasn't seen yet
6102 2013-03-12 21:59:23 <sipa> coinspinner_: read what i said
6103 2013-03-12 21:59:45 <coinspinner_> sipa: ok
6104 2013-03-12 21:59:46 <gwillen> gmaxwell: I'm actually curious why the no-children requirement is present
6105 2013-03-12 21:59:54 <gwillen> gmaxwell: if you mandate preservation of all existing outputs
6106 2013-03-12 21:59:56 <helo> gmaxwell: that seems so obvious in retrospect... i was very afraid of the whole tx replacement
6107 2013-03-12 21:59:59 <gmaxwell> gwillen: because the replacement invalidate the chidren.
6108 2013-03-12 22:00:10 <sipa> coinspinner_: the mempool only contains fully validated transactions; if any dependency is now known, it - by definition - cannot be validated
6109 2013-03-12 22:00:12 <gmaxwell> gwillen: child txn refer to parent by txid!
6110 2013-03-12 22:00:16 <gwillen> oh, because they depend on not just their own output

6115 2013-03-12 22:00:24 <sipa> coinspinner_: there is a separate orphan pool with seen but unverified transactions
6116 2013-03-12 22:00:33 <sipa> coinspinner_: and this orphan pool is limited in size
6117 2013-03-12 22:00:43 <gmaxwell> gwillen: also, if we have child-pays-for-parent, replacing only the last child would be sufficient to get the chain mined.
6118 2013-03-12 22:00:46 <gwillen> I guess also, if you allow increasing the size of outputs, that would be bad for children even if they weren't invalidated
6119 2013-03-12 22:00:54 <gmaxwell> gwillen: hah, indeed.
6120 2013-03-12 22:00:57 <sipa> coinspinner_: don't confuse orphan here with stale blocks; the terminology is somewhat confusion
6121 2013-03-12 22:00:58 <coinspinner_> sipa: i see
6122 2013-03-12 22:01:00 <gwillen> gmaxwell: oh, interesting. Do we have child-pays-for-parent now?
6123 2013-03-12 22:01:08 <gwillen> gmaxwell: I didn't see that proposal but it makes a lot of sense
6124 2013-03-12 22:01:10 <sipa> coinspinner_: orphan means "parent not known"
6125 2013-03-12 22:01:14 <Luke-Jr> gwillen: only on the "eligius" miner bitcoind branches
6126 2013-03-12 22:01:15 <gmaxwell> gwillen: luke has a patch it's a little scary so its not merged.
6127 2013-03-12 22:01:20 <gwillen> haha.
6128 2013-03-12 22:01:28 <gwillen> It does seem like a very reasonable idea.
6129 2013-03-12 22:01:32 <sipa> it is
6130 2013-03-12 22:01:33 <Luke-Jr> gmaxwell: meh, it just needs unit tests IMO
6131 2013-03-12 22:01:34 <gwillen> Like priority inheritance.

6135 2013-03-12 22:02:08 <gwillen> actually, child-pays alone would give you a way to unstick stuck txns without replacement
6136 2013-03-12 22:02:12 <gmaxwell> though a more efficient implementation would be possible.
6137 2013-03-12 22:02:17 <gwillen> although only the recipient could do it
6138 2013-03-12 22:02:20 <gmaxwell> gwillen: it would it would let the reciever do it.
6139 2013-03-12 22:02:25 <gwillen> so it wouldn't help people sending coins to anonymous bureaucracies
6140 2013-03-12 22:02:25 <gmaxwell> We should have both.

6143 2013-03-12 22:02:32 <sipa> to be honest, i haven't worked through the patch myself either completely - i find it hard to follow

6150 2013-03-12 22:03:43 <Luke-Jr> sipa: most of the difficulty reading it IMO, is due to optimizations necessary for O(1)
6151 2013-03-12 22:03:44 <sipa> gmaxwell: that's my point
6152 2013-03-12 22:03:53 <skinnkavaj> is satoschidice going to be banned or stopped somehow? i hope not

6164 2013-03-12 22:05:59 <coinspinner_> spia: reason why I ask is that I have my own custom code which does it slightly different. It has what I call an Assembly in front of the mempool, where it eagerly tries to pull transactions it doesn't know of. This allows me to faster get a fairly up to date mempool.
