HudsonValleyHost (HVH) new VPS with strange specs

Hello folks,

I've got a VPS with HVH lately and it is advertised as "4 vCPU" on an E3 node. Nice!

https://lowendbox.com/blog/hudsonvalleyhost-4gb-openvz-5mo-500gb-storage-openvz-7-50mo-and-40-off-site-wide

The problem is each vCPU is locked to 848Mhz, which is in reality a quarter of 3400Mhz

So they are giving 1 core at 3400Mhz splitted in 4 ?

See the Geekbench here: http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/8240643 -- Only one core fully effective... hum!

I opened a ticket and their answer it is IntelSpeedStep technology ? Seriously ?

I've always had positive things to say about Ernie when he was the Chief commander of HVH, aka support was more "helpful".

What do you think ?

Thanks!

  • Run something CPU intensive for a couple minutes and check to see what the core is reporting?

    Ah, you mean the CPU speed, well like I said it's locked at 848Mhz

    Then I'd be pissed. I understand fair use, but if they are advertising 4 vCPUs and only allowing full burst of one, welp- they should say so.

    What's /proc/cpuinfo say, anyhow?

  • Ask them if your vzctl has a cpulimit of 25. I wouldn't doubt that this is the case.

  • mikhomikho Member, Provider

    from what I can read in this thread you got 4vCPU. they are however capped @ 848Mhz.

    You got what was advertised but it should have mentioned that you only got access to a 1/4 of the core speed.

    My recommendation; cancel and move away. choose a provider that doesn't hide stuff by leaving important information out of the advert.

    Get a LES NAT VPS! (or 10) in United States (3), Germany, Bulgaria, France, Norway, Australia (2), Singapore. | -> 500gb NAT Storage

    Yeah, I have a few vps with Virmach that comes with capped cpus and I do not have a problem with that. What piss me off is that HVH try to hide this or look innocent like no capping is effective on the vps. Come on... tell the truth at least ;)

  • Further deception, but what do you really expect, if it was something different I really don't know why.

    Not like anything will be done about it round here either the parent company owns this forum.

    Well, duh:

    [[email protected] ~]# sysbench --num-threads=1 --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=50000 run
    

    Note the --num-threads=1

    Running this same bench on my online.net atom server (C2750) I get this result:

    sysbench 0.4.12:  multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark
    
    Running the test with following options:
    Number of threads: 1

    So my atom cores, clocked at 2.4ghz are about half as fast as your cores. Sounds about right. (but only if they speed up when under load, which is what support was trying to tell you)

    Now add --num-threads=4 to your bench, and watch the top/htop output. My sysbench time got down to 44s using --num-threads=4, and even down to 22s using --num-threads=8, given that the server I'm on is 8-core.

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

  • teamacc said: Now add --num-threads=4 to your bench, and watch the top/htop output.

    Look further down I've already done with 4 cores, which gives the same results.

  • And just for shits n giggles I ran the same command on an E3 1231v3, with 80 seconds as output score (1 thread used). Now, if your server really was clocked down to 25% of its original speed, you'd get around 300+ seconds output. You didn't, so your server is not clocked down (under load)

    So yes, HVH is delivering the performance you want, and no, support is not lying to you.

    Well, THAT is interesting. However, given that your 1-thread sysbench did produce proper output, your cpu is most likely not downclocked. Why you're getting 1-core scores for a 4-core vps I dont know.

    Well, if you had read in full, I think that you would not come to this conclusion.

    teamacc said: your cpu is most likely not downclocked

    What I'm saying is that I was assigned one core out of four or the equivalent. 3400 / 4 = 850

    There is some throttling in place, but was not mentioned in first place. And they try to hide it.

  • It has always been 1 Core CPU. That's why you can upgrade to more when you order.

    If they are giving you 4 that amounts to one, no problem there.

    I can't stand providers who do that =/ where a single problem ends up becoming a huge thread of ticket replies that don't do anything.

  • I still think it would be common courtesy saying that along with 4vCPUs, that you were given 1/4 core each- but that's just me.

  • @WSS said:

    Then why would a single-threaded benchmark score the same as a 4-thread bench?

    Might be a problem with their provisioning system, putting all your vCPUs on the same host-core.

    Because bullshit metrics, OpenVZ+NoGiveAShit? I already suggested he ask if there is a cpulimit setup on the vzctl on his VPS; I have no idea if it's gone farther than there. If he was locked to 25%, it works differently depending on CentOS 5 and CentOS 6 for figuring that out, so it certainly seems to be throttled, however I don't deal with OVZ enough to tell you why you'd have the exact same meter of use independent of threads.

    Ahh...

    cat /proc/cpuinfo cpu MHz : 3392.421

    execution time (avg/stddev): 21.2116/0.00

    You are the real MVP !

    Why does it takes a LET thread to makes all things works?

    Anyway, thank you.

    Just for giggles, I decided to sysbench my own service similar to the $5 special from the LEB front page on January 6th:

    `./sysbench --num-threads=1 --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=50000 run
    sysbench 0.4.12: multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark

    Running the test with following options:
    Number of threads: 1

    Doing CPU performance benchmark

    Threads started!
    Done.

    Maximum prime number checked in CPU test: 50000

    Test execution summary:
    total time: 86.9962s
    total number of events: 10000
    total time taken by event execution: 86.9922
    per-request statistics:
    min: 8.50ms
    avg: 8.70ms
    max: 13.86ms
    approx. 95 percentile: 8.98ms

    Threads fairness:
    events (avg/stddev): 10000.0000/0.00
    execution time (avg/stddev): 86.9922/0.00`

    OK, so...

    `./sysbench --num-threads=4 --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=50000 run
    sysbench 0.4.12: multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark

    Running the test with following options:
    Number of threads: 4

    Doing CPU performance benchmark

    Threads started!
    Done.

    Maximum prime number checked in CPU test: 50000

    Test execution summary:
    total time: 86.6999s
    total number of events: 10000
    total time taken by event execution: 346.7389
    per-request statistics:
    min: 11.53ms
    avg: 34.67ms
    max: 59.69ms
    approx. 95 percentile: 40.40ms

    Threads fairness:
    events (avg/stddev): 2500.0000/0.71
    execution time (avg/stddev): 86.6847/0.01
    `

    Interesting that a special for 25% of the usual price gives you.. 25% of the service. Cancelling out of general principle.

    I can't get this damn formatting to work. Anyhow- I paid more than $5/mo for this deal, I got the "Self-Managed 300GB VPS" deal on this one.

    Also hard set cpulimit to 100 in case it was 25 before as someone suggested.

    What about all other clients you sold services to? Do they still get the limited cpu power until they also make a 30-post thread on LET?

    Or anyone can drop me a PM with issues. No core speed was advertised and they are vCPU's, not full cores as advertised on the KVM plan from the same offer. Same 4gb plan offered for years.

    One would assume that if one vCPU can obtain a certain benchmark, 4 vCPUs can at least obtain double that benchmark score, if not 4x.

    The current design seems broken, and given that you admit such by altering settings for one client, why not alter them for all your clients?

    CPU Governator / CPU Dynamic Scale, can be disabled in the nodes.

    You shouldn't set a limit for 1000% / 10000.
    Note that the solusvm's limits aren't that good, it doesn't limit properly. It sucks.

    Thanks @MikePT - I will check into that.

    So you got the same vps as me, but managed? Interesting.

    Self-Managed. It wasn't one of the $5 specials, but the specs were pretty much precisely the same. I don't disagree with their practice of keeping any random retard from pegging the CPU, but if I am told I have 4 cores, I don't generally expect to be limited to using (the equivalent to) one of them.

  • WSS said: Self-Managed.

    I've read too fast, sorry. Well, if I order one vps with 4 cores, I want to be able to burst that 4 cores (400%). If not then I would order a vps with just one core :P

    So, we're in agreement. :)

  • @Nick I suggest to have it more clear in your advertisement that a vCPU is not a full node core but a capped one. And rise a little the speed cap to something more than ~800MHz with fair share, of course. This way, you will not have any other troubles with your clients. Anyway, 5$ per month for 300GB hard disk, 5TB bandwidth and 4GB of memory, even with the speed of a single full core, couldn't be stated as a bad deal...

    In any case, most of providers that do advertise vCPU, do not offer the full speed of a plain core but a capped one. If speed is critical, then, any potential byuer should ask the provider what are the hard limits of the core's speed.

    I am here occasionally nowadays, because I really prefer https://talk.lowendspirit.com . You should try it, it is fat-free, delicious with fresh ingredients combined with the deep knowledge of the old chefs!

    Also, interestingly enough, my VPS seems to have me locked down to 1.00 CPU time, which I expect to not be as well managed for the hard bursting numerics.

    top - 03:33:35 up 63 days, 4:52, 1 user, load average: 1.01, 1.05, 1.00

    So typical of a CC company, its what you don't tell people that is actually important, this thread is so completely ridiculous.

    Those of you who know why, know; those of you who don't, have no reason to know better or you know... work for HVH.

    I am pretty shocked this is the standard we have slipped too these days.

    First it was the 'dedicated' servers that turned out to be KVM VM's, now this.

    Ya know, I've been toying with making lower-and-lower end VPS just to amuse myself, but so far I can't find anyone who will give me an ne2k and VNC so I can setup Lantastic.. I don't think I'd ever need more than a quarter-CPU..

  • AnthonySmith said: this thread is so completely ridiculous.

    When I thought about opening this thread or not I thought exactly about this, that it would become a mess and a CC bashing thread etc. It was not my intention anyhow. But thanks to me now, it as been resolved :) Well, thanks @teamacc in first place

    There will always be CC bashing, and the reason for doing so is pretty clear in this case. Someone has to call them on their shit.
