Goldcoin Block Explorer
« on: April 30, 2015, 09:36:54 am »
The Goldcoin block explorer seems to be down currently. I have notified Dreamwatcher (the site admin) and asked him to investigate the issue.

HI,

Received your PM and am responding here due to BTC talk being down.

To be honest there was never an issue, the explorer was not stuck. The block chain simply did not move for 10 hours between 245677 and 24568.

Code: [Select]
{
    "hash" : "c10fe65d199b253b96ff339403a57739ab010501ca323c3a6083559789b617e4",

    ],
    "time" : 1430369616,
    "nonce" : 2230978672,
    "bits" : "1c027d19",
    "difficulty" : 102.86492088,
    "previousblockhash" : "09fa492663213441e5670fa8b03fd36f8b4b8597da80b92352135bf213b92016",

}

{
    "hash" : "199dcd23b32f3717a35915a70cd42c4dd713bd3b7a12d74cbb02e2165b457948",

    "time" : 1430404983,

}

1430404983 - 1430369616 = 35367 seconds / 3600 seconds per hour = ~9.82 hours

In the current code of the database loader there are two timers. One times each RPC request and times out at 10 seconds. The other times the main database loader loop and times out at 5 minutes. This is accomplished using a python module called Interrupting cow that wraps around the code. When either one these timers timeout, it completely exits (shuts down) the database loader after it raises an exception.
Currently the only way for the explorers to get stuck is if the coin daemon stops responding for whatever reason. However, the database loader will continue to start-up and try to parse blocks if the coin daemon continues to call it through block notify.


People will be able to see how all this works when I release the open-source version of CCE 4.0 (The current version in development). The database loader is ready to be released, and I have had a few developers take a peek at it.
In the mean time ,I have decided to release a full open source package including the web server. I am currently working on the web server at this moment.

The open source version of CCE 4.0 will be a very basic version. The closed source production version is more robust with many more features.
The open source version is meant as a foundation to building a full featured block explorer, though it can serve as an explorer on its own.

I will be releasing the open source version soon. The production version to be rolled out on CCE will come later, along with a new pricing structure and a ton more features.

I'm bumping this thread as a reminder that the block explorer needs updating before the fork at 253000.

Trying to get in touch with Dreamwatcher now to obtain the explorer's status.

The Goldcoin explorer coin daemon was updated to 7.2.0 a couple of hours ago and it appears everything is running fine.  :)

9 blocks until fork.....

Ok, the site is working and shows content  :)

but they show the wrong height and the wrong difficulty , so the blockexplorer on these sites seems not working, http://miningpool.net/explorer/gld/ seems stuck at block 296500 with a diff of 53 .

on https://coinplorer.com/GLD the explorer stuck on block 325320 with a diff of 33.18

and the http://gld.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ is on block 327036 with a diff of 24.47

The first time I checked these sites, I didn't look at their outputs.

Today, when I looked, https://coinplorer.com/GLD and http://gld.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ were at the same point, but http://miningpool.net/explorer/gld/ is still stuck at block 296500.  The block information for 296500 matches that of the other two sites.  http://miningpool.net/explorer/gld/ is not an a different fork at least.  This explorer is akumaburn's site, so I will send him a message.

While we're on the subject of explorers ...

I guess this is a good time to mention that we have a payment due of $275.00 if we want to keep the current explorer http://gld.cryptocoinexplorer.com/. Dreamwatcher sent me a notice a couple of days ago reminding me that the payment is due for 2016.

Some of the top coins are using Coinployer (which is free), but I'm torn because the current explorer is reliable - and honestly - it feels almost like a family member.

What do you guys think we should do?

Hi Greg,

Coinmarketcap is already using the explorer at http://miningpool.net/explorer/gld/

No need to pay so much for an explorer :)

I'll get to vamping ours once my finances get stable.
Want to donate to the Development Team?

- If Coinployer is free we can also use it maybe  :) , it would be another site on the Internet which provides good and useful Information about Goldcoin, it is also good to have another Block explorer up and running to have something like a little backup, it is also a free site where people get involved into Goldcoin. I can maybe take a look at Coinployer and take care about this to the end of the year.

https://coinplorer.com/GLD is working again since a few days ,

- i ve got further e-mail conversation with them :

I ve said that Goldcoin team will eventually make Coinplorer to the Official Blockexplorer, so it would gain clicks on coinplorer and save over 200 $ yearly on GLD development Costs.
-In order to stay save and decentralized we should have a second Blockexplorer  :)
(calling for Akumaburn  :)) )

asked for backup file but they do not provide something like that.

You can Donate with GLD  :)

- someone Donated 5000 GLD
