This is just a random thought that I might share
I'm in slush's pool, using DaCoinMinster's Chrome extension. One of the additional statistics displayed is a calculated MH/s. I assume that this is calculated based on something like: (cluster GH per sec / total shares) * shares I produced. I believe that some other pools also display this information, although I haven't dug too far into many of them.
I push a (stonking) 35MH/s total at the moment (soon to be moderately and prudently improved), and there is pretty large variance in the calculated MH/s displayed for each round - sometimes I'm seeing 100.64MH/s, others 7.30MH/s and anywhere in between. This variance sometimes evens out over longer rounds (which you'd expect) but often it makes no difference whether it is a 2.5 hour round or an 8 minute round.
Do you all think that this could be perceived as a measure of "luck"? As in, for rounds in which I'm fortunate my MH/s is over-represented, and on bung rounds it is lower?
Or am I pushing so few MH/s into the pool that the overall measure is probably going to be completely out of wack anyway?
Keen to hear any insight or general musings
