that seems about right based on what I am getting as well. I have tried differing amounts of cpu cores in each VM. Currently a single core VM is hitting about 150 pps, dual core is on 330, dont have a quad core and my 8 core is on about 650.

Im probably gonna forget about them for a while now and just let them tick over. With the price being about $1.25 USD at the moment I dont think it makes any sense to be mining on a paid VPS so have abandoned that train of thought at the moment and will stick with my own server

Yeah even at this silly price 220PPS gets about $5.18 per month. So while not raking in the $ it's still breaking even. But I'm doing what you're doing at the moment. Just going to let it tick over and try and get a decent configuration going.

I've made a second VM on my server now so I'm looking at around 500PPS. 

I did made it to try out protoshares (PTS) which basically had the same setup as XPM. However, after mining overnight I didn't see any stats updating on beeeeer. Slightly confused. I downloaded the wallet (which gave me an address), start mining using that address. But nada. Gave up and turned it into an XPM miner instead.

Kingy: I've made a second VM on my server now so I'm looking at around 500PPS.

After playing around with some different mining software for a few weeks, now, I feel that PPS is a bad measurement to use - it is only valid when using the same software and settings across different platforms, because there are other criteria to determining the PPS - for example, how 'big' the prime is that is being looked for or how big the bucket is in which the primes are being sought. Even though the difficulty is currently 10, I notice in my log files, occaisionally a mine will find a 6 chain prime or a 7 chain prime, for example.

I wrote a follow up article using TandyUK's jhPrimeMiner at ypool.net here.

As it is a differnet piece of software in a different pool, lets discuss it in this thread.

Cheers and thanks for your support. I do get a higher take while using ypool and I can now confirm there is an advantage to using a 64bit operating system (at least, all the ones I tested so far. In time, I will produce a post with numbers to validate that statement.
