  • Are you happy with it?

    Is it fast for your needs?

    How's the uptime?

    It is excellent for a webserver.

  • What are you trying to run on it exactly, and what are your resource allocs that you're working with?

    when i write this thread that time speed is too slow...mayb some one doing hard stuff... but now its ok and fast.

    just 1 week running...not confirm about uptime.
    happy at that price only 2.36 usd with 128mb ram.
    i am not confirm is it fast server?cause i confused how you guys judge this mattter. :)

  • Looks good. Try dd when it gets slow, slow i/o is usually the reason for slowness.

    Does it seem slow? If not, don't worry about benchmarks.

  • @Kairus said: Does it seem slow? If not, don't worry about benchmarks.

    no its not slow.just asking you is it good?
    when you its bad?

  • @raihan0888 i think uptime is a universal measure of performance-Need to keep it up ...

    The only confirmed benchmark is the disk speed of 72 mb/s which is good enough IO for a webserver.

    A CPU and overall test can give you an idea of the CPU speed and system speed.

    http://byte-unixbench.googlecode.com/files/unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
    or

    Geekbench

    You mentioned sometimes it is slow, you should try testing at different times of the day to see what speeds you get.

    Once you get your numbers, do a search here at LEB, there are alot of benchmark threads where you can compare your numbers.

    For $2.36/month, you can't expect blazing speeds but it looks like a good deal to me.

  • From the benchmarks you posted it looks good. Another reason why it might seems slow is network. You can use mtr (or winmtr) on windows to check if there is some packet loss. Any loss above 10% would make ssh sluggish and make it seem as the server is slow.
