Best approach of vps/dedicated comprehensive benchmark

What is most common benchmarking package (and command to execute with args) to test server performance including disk and network. See a lot of different benchmark outputs, but dont have any idea how to run same tests and compare results. And may be timed tests strategy?

What are you hashtags?

  • I 'm very afraid to run scripts which I dont understand, and which are not from official repos at my dedi. Do any standard package exists?

  • https://github.com/K4Y5/ServerBench

    yet another script you might not understand ;-)

    but it doesn't do anything else then pull testfiles from different well-known providers and run dd three times to do a somewhat common benchmark.

    there is no magic in that script, it is a simple sequence of commands you could put into your shell manually.

    comparable in terms of ypu performance I'd suggest using geekbench v4 nowadays.

    and if you really want to look further into disk-performance fio is most probably the way to go but much harder to understand than simple shell-script... ;-)

    most recommended Provider: First-Root KVM Power-Edition /w SSD

    Try this one for even much more network locations

    wget x86.ca/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash

    ;-)

  • WHAT do you want to benchmark?

    And I do not simply mean "disks" or "cpu" - I mean that a benchmark needs a context. Getting the numbers, for instance, from a graphics oriented benchmark doesn't tell me much for my, say, nginx plus postgresql server scenario.

    My connectivity benchmark, for instance, for which you asked in the aruba thread, is great and fine for me because I chose the destinations that show the world like I'm interested in. The same benchmark would be all but worthless for a Chinese checking his HongKong server.

    Plus: Keep in mind that you need - well designed and specified - series of benchmark runs (e.g. at different times of the day) unless all you want is to get first rough impression.

    My favourite prime number is 42. - \forall cpu in {intel, amd, arm}: cpu->speed -= cpu->speed/100 x irandom(15, 30) | state := hacked

  • Is this actually benchmarking something or just the usual LowEndDickLength measuring?

    If only there was more australian servers ;)
