When comparing Megaera dps one should ALWAYS consinder the combination of heads each player is doing the boss in. For example: Ignoring green will result in a high amount of movement, lowering everyones dps and increasing SrpS contribution to the damage done ( Note: 17% sounds perfectly fine for single target application with that strategy). Ignoring the blue head on the other hand means MUCH less movement and higher dps. So, before judging anyone here by their dps done think twice and ask for their order of downing the heads!
Megaera is not Single target DPS. Well there is 1 target always that is true, but you are loosing dps during kiting the ice, deterrence on poison and new opening on each head. That is a lot of dps which is lost.
I'm Ilvl 516 atm (with 491 weapon) and on our last kill i did 105k dps (mage and rogue (512-514ilvl) did the same dps as me, but a bit more damage done overall). Our strat is to kill red and blue heads only, so at the end there is kinda a lot of ice we need to kite, and normaly we kite with no range of head...
So if you are doing 100k+ dps, you are pretty fine.
I've never done that many frozen heads, but without looking at logs it sounds like you're losing a lot more damage on movement than you should be.
As a reference point, I pad and end up around 17-20% on my SS. That's without moving, but moving shouldn't result in so many lost shots that it pushes your serpent sting almost 50% higher than the 11-12% it should be on pure patchwerk.

The link to your logs is broken.
As a general thing for the thread though, it's useless to talk about DPS. Mainly because:
1) If people actually did the DPS that they said they did, the rankings page would look a lot different. It's no different than any other epeen question on the internet. Somehow, by complete chance, the entire forum becomes filled with 6'4 hedge fund managers with japanese girlfriends that pull perfect numbers on their hunter. Go figure.
2) DPS numbers mean next to nothing. A hunter in a 25 man raid dropping 3 crit banners and 4 stormlash totems in a 6 minute fight will look radically different from a hunter in a 10 man raid with a buff missing that takes 8 minutes to do the fight. There's no use bothering with that when you can look at logs and see exactly how good a hunter is.
There's honestly nothing glaringly wrong. You can probably be a little cleaner getting everything right off CD, but that's most people.
Keep in mind that other classes were obviously cleaving off of the other head, so you can't look at the meters like it's a straight patchwerk fight.
OP your dps is fine imo. That fight is just not that great for surv compared to higher burst classes or multi dotters.
