SwitchVM - Benchmarks?

SwitchVM - Benchmarks?

dominicldominicl Member
edited August 2012 in General

Hello,

SwitchVM will be launching extremely soon, and I'd like 2-3 people to do some benchmarks for me, as I know you like doing that!

If you would like to take part, just reply to this post and I'll PM you with details.

Thanks guys! Dominic SwitchVM

    Benchmark on an empty node? Big deal.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk said: Benchmark on an empty node? Big deal.

    I didn't say somebody had to do them. I was asking if somebody could ;)

  • What makes you think this will work better than GuernseyHosting?

  • TazTaz Disabled

    But what would you get by benchmarking an empty node?

    Because Guernsey Hosting didn't have enough money to start up, and therefore was making a loss. Even if I am going to make a loss to start with (which all hosts do), I will have the money to carry on renewing.

    We aren't reselling VPS's (when GSYHosting did, it was painful).

    @Taz_NinjaHawk said: But what would you get by benchmarking an empty node?

    Results. I just want to see other people think it performs for them, and how it does perform

    Empty node Benchmark != Real usage, once you atleast feel it upto 50%, that benchmark will only be able to prove something. I might be wrong.

    Ah OK, fair enough. I'll wait until i'm 50-60% full and then ask a few to benchmark then :)

  • I agree.

    We were getting over 240MB/s Disk I/O on an empty node, but only around 180MB/s now that our node is 75% full.

    You are not wrong. The point of the initial benchmarks* on empty node is to check if everything is actually okey with the hardware (for example RAID10 node, having 50MB/s read/write speeds on dd test) and eventually to compare once it is empty and once it is full. That should be done by 1 person only, the owner/staff member.

    I did a KVM beta testing a month ago - the purpose was not benchmarks, but ot see how the node performs under load, which is something that most hosts should do, when stepping into new waters (as it was KVM for me).

    I own DA International Group Ltd.

  • Thanks for the input guys. I'll get somebody to test when this node is about 50-60% full.

    Thanks for the laugh dom

    If you are going to be feeling up the node, please take it to the server porn thread

  • Sounds funny :)

    I'm still waiting for this topic:

    "SwitchVM - Stock??"

  • You should be benchmarking yourself before launch imo. That's the only way to tune performance.

  • If your using SecuredServers... then just go get a gigabit port for your VPS node. It's only $5.

    I got a free upgrade because I called them.

  • I got a free upgrade to a E3-1270v2 from a 1230v1 because I told Gordon his network seemed amazing.

    Wow, just want to say that your network is also seems amazing and even more than amazing ^ ^

  • I will be getting gbit. Don't worry ;)

  • What you node configuration? :o

  • @budingyun said: What you node configuration? :o

    This has been said..so..many..times

    First node is an X3440 with 2xHDD's in SWRAID 1. Second node will be an E3-1230v2 with 4xHDD's in RAID10.

    Thanks!

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    which dc?

  • @Randy said: which dc?

    PhoenixNAP. I will get more US locations, eventually.

  • @dominicl How much RAM? Also, please get RAID10 on Both nodes :)

    Well, everyone loves RAID10..or so it seems. Get on Skype ;) The first node has 8GB, upgradable to 16GB. Second node will probably start at 16GB.

  • @jcaleb said: care to share?

    Last time i used vpsfx promo vps, got nice latency but not as good as from LA though. For now budgetvm LA vps give me lowest and stable latency from my location here (Malaysia).

    Glad to hear it ;) You'll be surprised by the LET offer coming up. It's well within the LET price point, don't worry.

    @dominicl your company is vpsfx? or is that dc?

  • @jcaleb said: @dominicl your company is vpsfx? or is that dc?

    No, I don't have a clue who VPSFX is. I think he was stating that he used them and had good connections to where he lives. The DC I'm using is PhoenixNAP

    PhoenixNAP Providers will drain your pennies, I used infinitie.net and I regret leaving them on a blackfriday sale I picked up 100TB Bandwidth for $50 on a Gbit port pooled between 2 or 3 servers(cannot remember).

    The invoices add up, and Jeesh you don't realise how much you have spent untill it is gone.

    I've seen so many bad reviews on Infinitie..I can't remember a good one. One quite recently too

    Any test ip?

    Vpsfx also located in PhoenixNAP. :D

  • @jcaleb said: 250ms from Manila

    Wow - yeah. There are other providers that use PhoenixNAP on here I believe. NodeDeploy and another one

  • budingyunbudingyun Member

    Same +-250ms from Malaysia.

    More 10ms from my connection to LA.

    ps: I'm using HSPA+ network, that's why the value a bit high.

  • Ah right, OK. From here, I get 160-170ms.
