Advice needed for server

Hi

I'm using netcup for some years and they are very reliable.
I have a RS 2000 SAS G8 a2 (16Gb Ram with 460 SAS disk) from a black-friday for 9,24€ plus VAT.

I don't think I need 16Gb RAM (see image bellow), but I run some PHP and Python websites, 8GB MySQL DB and an Elasticsearch server.
The overall performance is good, CPU and Network are very good for my requirements, but disk speed is low.
InnoDB buffer pool size is set to 4G and Elasticsearch to 1Gb.

I'm tempted to get a RS 1000 G9 AMD EPYC 7702 for 10,40 € (19% VAT included), ask them to switch to a RS 2000 G8 SSD server (if they allow) or search for some alternatives with AMD EPYC or Ryzen and SSD/NVMe within this price range since 160Gb disk should be enough.

Any advice or suggestion within Europe for a similar price? Do you think 8GB of RAM should be enough for this usage?

PS:

  • Cloudiver is having some issues at the moment, so iperf tests are incomplete.
  • I'm not a big fan of SolusVM, so I would prefer some alternative if possible.

Thanks

    According to your graph, yes, 8GB will be enough since most of it is disk cache, and sice you're switching to a ssd you shouldn't need that cache that much.

    Assuming your usage doesn't increase.

    Thanked by 1nfn

    Will record my self doing 30 pushups for NAT vps, HIRE ME NOW ;)
