Code optimizations for scotbot

in #steem-engine2 years ago (edited)

As more and more posts were created that have at least one of the scot tags included, my previous scotbot implementation was not efficient anymore.

I rewrote the part that handles the all pending rshares and the token reward pool. In order to show the pending token rewards for one posts, I need to know the current reward pool size and the sum of all pending rshares of all posts.

As there are currently around 15000 pending posts/comments and 217000 votes on palnet, going everytime through all posts and votes is not very efficient.

The first part of improving this is now completed. The pending token amount for a post is no longer stored directly in the database and calculated directly on request. With this change, it is no longer necessary to change all pending posts/comments objects in the database at every round.

The complete sum of all rshares and the current reward pool can be received from the API:
with the parameter pending_rshares and reward_pool. pending_rshares includes the author nonlinear curve.
The reward_pool is stored as integer, the token amount can be calculated by dividing it through 10**precision.

Every posts has now a vote_rsharesparameter, which is the sum of all vote rshares. The nonlinear author curve exponent is also stored in every posts with theauthor_curve_exponent parameter. The vote_rsharesparameter and the global pending_rshares are updated whenever a new vote arrives.

The pending token amount can then be calculated on request by:

pending_token = int_pow(vote_rshares, author_curve_exponent) / pending_rshares * reward_pool / 10**precision

Blacklisted accounts

Whenever the @steemsc accounts mutes an account, this account will be blacklisted from all SCOT instances. A blacklisted account can not vote and can only post once a day.

Currently, only animalcontrol is muted by steemsc.


Love your work, Holger. You're an absolute machine, and the chain wouldn't be the same without your incredible efforts.

Thanks for the update. Any plan on open source Scotbot? and seems there is a problem on paid out posts now. Number doesn't match with actual payout.
