OVH (BHS) to Hetzner Peering

Anyone know how the connection between OVH (BHS Canada) to Hetzner is? I currently have an FS-72 server over at OVH that connects to another OVH server but Hetzner's SX291 server has a lot more storage for a much lower price. I was hoping I could connect the other OVH server over to a Hetzner SX291 without having any connection issues like really high latency or low bandwidth.

Any information would be helpful, thanks!

  • It's a bit tenuous since the Germans and French don't tend to be good friends.

    In two minutes from OVH and Hetzner to Hitler. You guys are special snowflakes...

    Hetzner sometimes bans the connection from OVH. When doing a site for the Benchmark database, there was a problem, the server in RBX did not want to ping server in Hetzner. But the Hetzner server was calmly downloading files from OVH.

    It's like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon but a lot worse.

    Do you know if that was only to RBX or OVH in general?

    OVH in general I think.

    OVH in general I think.

    If it was only ICMP I can deal with that. I just need it to be able to transfer files between the two servers at a reasonable speed.

    latency wise Hetzner to Ovh Bhs is just under 100ms at 99ms.

    Speed slow at start after a number of secs stable around 20.0MB/s.

    Run iperf3 -s on your server and PM me the IP, I can post a benchmark of transfer speed to/from BHS for you.

    Here you go, 2 times BHS -> Hetzner and 2 times Hetzner -> BHS. My upload is capped at 100 Mbit, and looks like yours is at 250 Mbit.

    Yeah, it's an MC-64 from OVH so it's capped at 250 Mbps like you said. Looks like I wouldn't have any problems with transfers between the two. I really appreciate the help.

  • Ha, I didn't read your message closely, sorry. I thought you have a Hetzner server already, and asked for an IP of that... As currently, we have just measured bandwidth of BHS<>BHS.

    Haha, I was going to say that those were really great speeds. Guess I’ll see if anyone that has a Hetzner server can run the same ipef test. Thanks for trying though!

    This is my speed downloading a hetzner test file: Avg 1.01MB/s (max 5MB/s) (http://speed.hetzner.de/10GB.bin) after downloading it for some minutes it went up to 2,5 - 3MB/s avg.

    It's really weird. I used mikho's looking glass and on my MC-64 the speeds were terrible (1.25 MB/s) but on my FS-72 I was getting around 28.6 MB/s. Not sure why two servers in the same datacenter are getting speeds that different from each other.

  • Did you test it at the same time?

    Yeah, one right after another.

    @Vova1234 - We do not block any connections from OVH. We have a direct peering with them. https://www.hetzner.de/unternehmen/rechenzentrum
    @SprkFade - You can check the speed with our speedtest server "wget -O /dev/null http://speed.hetzner.de/1GB.bin" You can do a trace to our speed test server and check if OVH uses the direct peering. Send me a PM here on LET with your IP, and I'll ask my colleagues if they can trace the other direction. --Katie, Marketing

    BHS has some interesting network issues that I'm trying to see if I can help them work out. I have 2 servers in BHS on different ip subnets. Using the 10GB hetzner test file one server is maxing out at ~7MB/sec in rescue mode and is a bit jumpy (goes between 6MB and 7MB). At the exact same time (they are running side by side) the other server is maxing out the connection at 11.2MB/sec and holding steady. Identical spec systems.

    EDIT: I guess I should mention I'm using Kimsufi KS-3C. It's a 100Mbit link. That's the only reason I'm capping off at 11.2MB/sec on the one.

  • Hetzner to OVH France is great, to OVH BHS nowhere near as fast IME. I should test OVH France to BHS. It might be worthwhile to use France as an intermediate hop.

    #lexit spread the word.

  • In my experience OVH SBG has the fastest connection to Hetzner FSN. i did not test OVH germany yet.
