Hi,

I'm new to pool mining but I'm trying to track down whether this is a bug or not.

I am running cellminer on my PS3, for no reason other than I like putting the cell broadband architecture to good use.

According to cellminer the ps3 should be doing 21.470 Mh/s. I am currently contributing to the Eligius US pool.

According to the pool's stats I am only doing ~7.9 Mh/s.

Which is correct? Or is there some way that both are correct and that my miner is somehow wasting cycles calculating old hashes? I dunno, is someone able to please enlighten me.
Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

The 21mh/s is correct. There is no way for the pool to know how many hashes your hashing per second. It estimates it from the amount of shares you submit. More luck (=more shares) = higher mh/s on the pool site, less luck (=less shares) = lower mh/s. etc.
