    acceptable cpu use

    For LEB VPS, what kind of CPU use is acceptable? Is 60% of 1 core out of a multi-cores plan acceptable? Thanks.

      "Don't be a dick" is acceptable most of the time.

      Some providers give their CPU policy in the AUP.

      "Don't be a dick" is very vague, any number to define "dick"?

      "Don't be a dick" mean dont use the cpu in this leb host because you pay cheap

      go in digitalocean and use all cpu and still pay cheap

      Its hard to say, depends how loaded the node/cores are and how many others have to share the same core(s)

      Generally the cheaper the VPS's the more volume required, more containers sharing said resources.
      Some providers charge more for their plans which in turn allows less amounts of containers per node. Some charge more and still oversell like crazy.

      I think using bursts of CPU for short periods is fine. If you really require atleast 60% of a core for a long period, perhaps discuss with the provider to confirm this is ok. If it's not might be time to look into a cheap dedicated server instead.

      60% of 1 core is all good fair game with us.

      Too bad using 100% Digital Ocean CPU is like using 10% CPU from any decent provider.

      We allow 100% usage of the cpu, meaning, if you have 4 cores, you can have a load of 4 with occasional spikes, not more than a few minutes is big and not more than a couple of hour if little. (Big being 2x, say load two for 1 core and little being load 5 for 4 cores)

      However, personally I am lashing out on users on the OVerZold plans which go higher then 100% shutting down and suspending them especially when I find out that the abuse comes from using forbidden software such as game clients and for spikes of 8x, we even had 2k loads on some containers...

      is digital ocean throttled?

      That's how it always works in the real world. You either have fair share and can use all of it sometimes OR you have a throttled CPU you can always use, but it'll be slow. Some people prefer 1, some people prefer the other. You can't get everything.

      I heard Xen has a really good CPU scheduler that it makes sure everyone gets a certain minimum but still allow CPU bursts as long as there is idle CPU. I guess then you don't have to worry about being a dick. Don't quote me on this though. I'd love to hear @AntonySmith if he can clarify about this as he seems to be the Xen expert around here.

      I can also confirm that Xen-PV has minimum overhead and a good resources separation, not allowing anyone lock cores as it happens in OVZ.

      On the other hand, KVM has also a very good separation, but the overhead is a couple of times higher than in Xen-PV, which, in turn, is 2 times higher than in OVZ. (Dont hold me to that, it is just how i feel it).

    • According to one lunatic a server load of up to 5.0 (on 2 cores) is perfectly OK because vBulletin's overload setting is 5.0 :P

      from the LEB comments:

      Domainbop also have no idea about nix server load....

      FYI, most forum board suggest 5.0 nix server load in a share hosting...

      ...irrelevant??? hahaha! appeal to vbuetin, smf, phpbb and mybb Domainbop… ask them why they suggest 5.0 nix serverload, or create a cause in internet that you are more genius about nix serverload that they put in their forum software. told them that they need to remove that.

      @dnom ^^ This :)

      My limit is above 70% of a core for 24 hours = warning

      Had enough of the scams on lowendbox, lowendtalk is now being infiltrated by corruption so I have chosen to make an low end exit #lexit for now - you can find me HERE

      Yes it does mean. Unless you pay for a dedicated CPU core, you shouldn't expect having a dedicated CPU core.

      If DigitalOcean is satisfying your needs why are you still here?

      Put in a cron to check if a container CPU is overloaded and then stop it.

      #! /bin/bash
      export PATH="/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin"
      maxload="10"; # put here the max loadavg permitted
      cat /dev/null > loads.txt;
      vzlist -o ctid,laverage > loads.txt;
      cat loads.txt | while read line; do
      vm=$(echo ${line:0:5});
      load=$(echo ${line} | cut -d'/' -f3);
      load2=$(echo ${load} | cut -d'.' -f1);
      if [ $load2 -gt $maxload ]
          then
          echo "stopping $vm - $load";
          vzctl stop $vm;
          echo "$vm - $load" | mail -s "$vm stopped for overload" [email protected]
      fi
