Hi all,

Is it ok to have different rate of accepted shares while mining different pools? I am using exact same miner (phoenix with phatk2) with exact same hash rate on 5830, but getting different number of accepted shares from different pools (currently comparing slush, arsbitoin and bitcoins.lc) over a fixed period of time (say 2 hours at a stretch).

Is this normal? Does this have anything to do with the fact that all these pools have different aggregate hashrates?

The discovery of shares is subject to probability just like the discovery of blocks, so that's normal.
You may even get wildly different numbers across different pools if they use different difficulties for shares.

if you keep going with this, checking your shares and checking your payments for a given number of shares, you will find that there are some consistent differences and that some pools are much more "lucky" and generous than others.

Yes, but it should be made clear that luck varies with time, so it should not be used as a criterion for choosing a pool.

i put luck in quotations. i am suggesting that some pools have consistently worse "luck".

my point is to keep on testing the pools until you find the honest and generous ones.

To be frank, i have been feeling that way too, that's why i am mining at 3 pools right now. can you please share your experience about which pools you have found to be "lucky" and generous?
