I've been using the pool for a few days now and I notice my "estimated" hash rate is less than 60% of my actual? Is there any reason for this? I'm not getting a lot of rejected or invalid blocks on my miner, and my generation rate seems to be lacking somewhat as well.
FWIW I'm using DiabloMiner.
what do you mean by estimated Hash rate ?
do you mean this side: http://eligius.st/~artefact2/eu/1FjGRR6hDTGhVmQ3ZYc1QBBTJ5TQH1Vtft
(your ID ofc)
theres only 1 time estimate : 1.) "Current block estimate :"
(this dosent belong to your hash rate)
the 2 things with Hash rate i found where:
2.) "This user has submitted 175 shares in the last 3 hours. This represents a contribution in average of 69.59 Mhashes/sec to the pool."
3.) "and the Graph with your Hash rate at each time."
if you mean the third:
Iam not realy shure about bitcoin and what itt dose but if iam right its like this.
- you get a block and have to calculate something
- after you done this you write your awnser
- because your computer is stupid he hase to brotforce the awnser so he juses try and error
- so there is a total of X possibles Awnsers and the pool says "You get a block and after Y Trys you have to get the awnser"
- so the pool sends you the Block and starts counting how long it takes for you to "Calculate" (its Try and Error) the awnser and he stops the time when he gets the awnser
so there are 2 Difficultis your lag in internet capacity/ping this time is your comp not calculation but the pool is counting (so you lose some Hashs)
because you try and error the awnser you mabye get the result after Y/2 so the pool things your faster then you are
same if you need 2 * Y for the awnser so the pool things you need to much time means you got low hash rate
Why i think my interpretation is right.
i followed the receved block times
normaly i thing i need 15 sec per block
but form time to time i get some 1 sec blocks (menas i get 1 block every 1 sec)
and so the pool things iam faster then iam
foir this i refer to my site: http://eligius.st/~artefact2/eu/1FjGRR6hDTGhVmQ3ZYc1QBBTJ5TQH1Vtft
i got a top pick of 170 MHash/s but my comp is only 150MHash/s for the hole time so in this time intervall i was very lucky and got some nice trys
at the end (so around 20o'clock i got only 130MHash/s but iam still running on 150MHash)
thats all i have to say to three
about second one its how many shares you got since last 3 hours if your Mining like me only in the eavaning
you start with 1 solved in 3 hours this revers to low MHash but if your going 3h with your full hash rate than the pool shoud estimate your right Hash rate
if somethigns wrong pls say whats wrong
