Chris_Stewart_5: it would be a wrong assumption to assume the user wants all their memory used by bitcoin. :(
your comment wrt to bitcoin-qt
i think bitcoin-qt for example should just detect how much memory you have at startup, and based on that, choose something and let the user customize
I know blocksize/dbcache aren't really related, but I think I was thinking about that as policy for some defaults in bitcoin core.
the CVarInt in serialize.h is a bitcoin core internal thing, only used for the utxo database and undo data
According to the bitcoin.it wiki, "CompactSize" is a var int, and CVarInt is an "even more compact integer for the purpose of local storage (which is incompatible with "CompactSize" described here)". But it's described in all documentation there and elsewhere as a "varint". So the varint is the compact size and the CVarInt/VARINT refer to something else. Doesn't that cause confusion?
Sigh. He might have gotten confused here: "When spending your bitcoins after the upgrade to segwit, you will still be able to pay the original type of Bitcoin addresses that start with a ‘1’ (a P2PKH address) as well as being able to pay other users of P2SH addresses."
sipa: btw I still get no results from "host seed.bitcoin.sipa.be"
I triggered some kind of hang or deadlock today on master by running bitcoin-cli stop shortly after starting bitcoind but before it had come up. Was in a rush to fix something else so I didn't attach a debugger before killing it. Mentioning so that if someone else encounteres it, you're not imagining it.
morcos: so, initial report (see https://github.com/sipa/bitcoin/commits/pertxoutcache)... gmaxwell benchmarked it, and it seems to make normal operation somewhat faster, but the cache memory usage larger resulting in more frequent flushes, and the flushes themselves are maybe 3x slower
sorry, can't access github now, but rebased https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/9279 and the windows builds keep failing in a way I cannot understand or reproduce, it says "int64_t does not name a type". Any help welcomed
[bitcoin] rebroad opened pull request #9325: Allow first cmpctblock/blocktxn received to be processed (rather than first requested) (master...ProcessFirstCmpct) https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/9325
try #bitcoin or #bitcoin-dev... bitcoin core can't do this
i was wondering if i wanted to test myself and make a simple bitcoin app that is a website which allows you to enter an address and then list all the addresses that have sent the given address bitcoin, how would i go about doing this at a high level?
