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.
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.
