Help us with Beta testing - Free KVM VPS for testing

Help us with Beta testing - Free KVM VPS for testing

AlexBarakovAlexBarakov Member
edited July 2012 in General

Hello,

So the past 5 days were way too long. Problems kept appearing one after another with my new provider (Talking about Limestonenetworks). Anyway, finally everything is resolved and I am ready to move the KVM testing from my dev server to a production server and I was hoping that you guys can test it out for 10 days, do whatever you want with it and in the meantime review the performance and give me feedback and suggestions on improving the quality.

It is planned to release a new line of KVM beta servers along with other new improvements, on my first anniversary after 1 whole year in the hosting industry. So far I have been testing it in a clsoe enviroment, without other users on the node, now I was hoping to see how the things work out with 10-20 users on a production node.

The node itself is: E3 1230 v2 16GB of RAM, ready to be upgraded to 32GB if needed for the testing 4x750GB WD HDDs in hardware RAID10

The beta plans are: Hdd Space: 50GB CPU Cores: 4 RAM: 512MB Bandwidth: 400GB Port: 100mbps

Upgrades are possible, just include your reason for additional resources in your request.

A couple of things that are important as well: - This plan comes with absolutely no SLA or uptime guarantee - This package will be cancelled and terminated on 28th of July 2012. - Please do not keep absolutely no valuable data on this VPS, as random data-loss might occur. We should not be held responsible for any data loss.

And finally the order link: https://liquid-solutions.biz/clients/cart.php?a=add&pid=51

The ISO's are: CentOS 5.8 32/64 bit netinstall CentOS 6.3 32/64 bit netinstall Debian 6 netinstall More can be added on request

And apologise for my bad English

    Preferably not atleast at the begining, as I asume that everyone that signs up would start doing different benchmarks. Maybe in a couple of days if you are still up to it?

    The .com domain is myne as well and redirects to the same website. Anyway, the thread is about something else, hoping not to get the thread derailed, atleast before I get a couple of results and feedbacks.

    @ErawanArifNugroho said: May I have one?

    Yes of course, just sign up through the link in the begining :) It should be delivered automatically.

    either vnc or debian netinstall is crashing a lot and is really slow... might wanna take a look

  • VNC Kept Crashing for me; the one on Solus anyway. I got debian installed fine.

    Did you by any chance use the "back" button to get on the control page for the VPS? I found out that on my side if I kept the page opened (the one for VNC), it does not close.

    Debian install works fine, just tested it.

    @kbar said: partitioner is frozen

    Can you elabore this? As it seems to be installing fine?

    first time it crashed saying something about sockets or w/e... second time it just hung at the place where you select locales, and right now it's moving 1% per 5 or so minutes on partitioning the disk.

    This is extremely weird. I will make sure to check the VNC thing, if possible to take a screenshot or just copy the error the next time it appears, as it has not happened to be About the HDD, it gets weirder as I have just installed debian without a problem, but I did use standard partitioning.

    Experiencing some node problems, apperantely a process is eating a huge amount of RAM and working on resolving it. Only 7 are deployed at the moment, I will reopen the page ASAP I get this resolved.

    As mentioned, server had to be rebooted ASAP, there were problems with memory allocation, I posted it on the previous post.

    Also, taking a look at your issue, as all the other users installed debian in a couple of minutes, something is wrong with your partitioning. Did you do anything custom or left it as default?

  • @LiquidHost personally I just installed it as standard, using GUI and only using "reccomended" options, being this my first KVM VPS :P

    It was targeted at @kbar :) As he has been stuck on partitioning for 20-30 minutes.

    @ErawanArifNugroho said: How do I use the virtio?

    Go into SolusVM ..

    Go to settings i think

    Disk driver at the bottom click drop down...

    select virtio

    reboot

  • I can only find virtio in Network Card option. Is that it?

    No is there not a disk driver?

  • Nope :( At another provider, it's there, and I can easily change it. But in this beta kvm, I can't find it

    My blog | Server Uptime | I'm not working for any providers in here, all my comments just my own opinion.image
  • Nope, just checked myself.

    Give me a second, there is someone from solusVM logged in to the node checking up the RAM allocation .

    @Mon5t3r said: @LiquidHost do /scripts/upcp-beta

    Was just doing it :)

    Anyway, the disk driver should appear now. Also, the memmory allocation problem is now resolved.

    EDIT: I did think that virtio driver option was available in stable release as well, as it is available at the admin side. Didnt even bother to log through a user panel, not even on my dev node. Weird.

    EDIT2: About the IO:

    [root@115-242-63-74 ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync 16384+0 records in 16384+0 records out 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 6.26191 s, 171 MB/s

    Not great, but reasonable for the server and should keep around 90MB/s on filled node.


    5 more are added as stock, more will be added tommorow, just want to keep it slower.

  • Well, 12 VMs have been sold and only 2 of the users responded to this thread (kbar and Erawan). What a shame. I will wait a couple of days for feedback from them and if I do not get any feedback, I will cancel them and give the VMs to someone that would do the testing.

    You have to give people a little more time, a week at least. It's not even been a full day, not everyone has spare time, granted most of them will still end up idle it's the hallmark of a LEB.

    Yes, I will give them more time. I am waiting for my /26 block now and will set up more VPS. I just tend to post always when I get a test vps to try out, while signing up, just for the provider to see that I do take it realtively serious and will indeed do something. I have actually already terminated a user that ordered 3 -.-

    They got sold out.. Once my /26 arrives there will be plenty for everyone.

    Anyway @ErawanArifNugroho The plans would be as follows: 512MB 30GB RAM 400 BW 7$ monthly

    and 4$ monthly for a 256MB one.

    Atleast this is what I am considering, most likely will go with that setup.
