I have three GPUs going at 350 MH/s each, totaling 1050 MH/s. Deepbit always reports a MH/s lower than 1050 MH/s. In fact, it's always between 800 MH/s - 950 MH/s. If Deepbit isn't even recognizing my increased hashing power I might as well get rid of my third GPU.

Deepbit counts the number of shares you have submitted in the past x minutes, where x can be set by you.

It's possible to transform that number of submitted shares into your expected hashrate. If you're lucky, you find more shares than a user with your hashrate would find on average, and then your deepbit hashmeter will show more than your actual hashrate. If you're experiencing bad luck, then the hash rate shown will be lower at deepbit.

If it's ALWAYS lower, that could mean something is wrong with your miner. On average (over a long period of time), it should be the hash rate shown in your miner.

I'm having problems with diablominer and my hardware, where every third hash that is found by the miner is actually invalid and thus not submitted to deepbit. So deepbit shows ~33% less hash rate on average. When using phoenix, my hardware works fine, and deepbit shows sometimes more, sometimes less than the hashrate shown in phoenix.

Use a real miner, did you know Nazis invented Java right?  Grin

The thing is Deepbit pays out proportionally by the hash rate. So if my hash rate gets reported 500 MH/s below my real hash rate of 1 GH/s, then I'll only receive a proportional payout equal to someone hashing at 500MH/s.

I look at Deepbit's reported MH/s as a luck indicator, if deepbit reports greater speed than my actual hashing speed I'm more lucky at finding and submitting shares at that point in time. If the number is lower then I'm obviously behind of expected results. Overall with time passing it all evens out (statistically).

EDIT: another note on the "luck" thing, I've noticed that when system runs unstable or 'semi-stable' which could due to extreme OC'ing or congestion of heat near GPUs and or PSU, performance in submitting accepted shares is 1-10% lower of that actual miner's reported throughput. I also think another reason for poor performance could be due to having not enough power.

No, that's not how it works.  DeepBit pays for the proportion of shares you submit to the pool during the round.  The hash rate that's displayed is just for display purposes and is an approximation.  The pool does not know your actual hashrate, it just sees the shares you are submitting.  Since your share submissions vary (you don't find shares at constant intervals), so does the rate DeepBit displays. 

I'm doing about 9500 MH/s right now.  Deepbit is showing about 8900 MH/s right now.  Sometimes it's showing closer to 10k MH/s.
