The best way Comparing 2 VPS for performance?

I have 2 servers one is with Linode and the other one is with Vultr. I was wondering how and which benchmark script will be the best to compare them for performance. Thank you.

    Don’t blindly look at standard benchmarks. But instead,

    Setup both servers the exact same way and close to similar resources.

    Install your softwares.

    Load test. If it is a web app (Wordpress for example), something like loader.io would help.

    Thank you, I am going to install Directdmin on the server to use it with Wordpress.

    If you're going to run WordPress on it, you can also use Apache JMeter to check the measure the performance on both the servers. Keep in mind, this won't justify how the servers are performing because there might be network obstruction in between. But from an end-user perspective, you'll get to know whom to choose.

  • This tool seems to be great as it covers almost everything to test the performance of the VPS for most of the tasks.

    Let LET guys know the benchmark results after you perform them on both. I am really interested to know the performance of both with the same specifications.

    You can use benchmark script like the one below:

    curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/masonr/yet-another-bench-script/master/yabs.sh | bash

  • as mentioned by others Yet-Another-Bench-Script is a good choice to perform basic tests. However, you need to make sure that you are the same hardware specs on both. In fact, you can check this yourself using "dd" for disk performance checks and "iperf" for network tests
