I am running a wordpress on a Xen 128MB vps from StylexNetworks. The system was installed by LEB script. what's the max PV each day it can handle?

    @jeffpan What's 'PV'?

    Xen Paravirtualization?

    Page Views?

    How about running an Apache benchmark script or something similar?

    If you mean Page Views, that really depends on the CPU, the amount of the CPU cores, your software configuration and which software you are running. So without details we cannot answer your question, sorry.

    But be sure in the most cases, it's harder to get the amount of visitors that let crash your server than optimize it ;)

    However, a good way to test how many page views your server could handle is "ab" from the apache2-utils. Benchmark some seconds and calculate it over a day. (But always know, the CPU is shared, so the hoster will hate you if you would need the full CPU the whole time)

  • Ah yes, I forgot the ab benchmark, :)

    @Amfy, the cpu info is below:

    processor : 0 vendor_id : GenuineIntel cpu family : 6 model : 45 model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 0 @ 2.00GHz stepping : 7 cpu MHz : 1999.999 cache size : 15360 KB fpu : yes fpu_exception : yes cpuid level : 13 wp : yes flags : fpu de tsc msr pae cx8 sep cmov pat clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht syscall nx lm constant_tsc up rep_good nonstop_tsc pni pclmulqdq ssse3 cx16 sse4_1 sse4_2 x2apic popcnt aes avx hypervisor lahf_lm bogomips : 3999.99 clflush size : 64 cache_alignment : 64 address sizes : 46 bits physical, 48 bits virtual power management:

    Thank you.

    Thanks for providing the info. If you would have this CPU core dedicated I would say you can expect about 9 req/s with wordpress and when you install xcache, you can expect about 25 req/s.

    Of course there are more facts on what it depends, like which version (php, wordpress) you're running, which plugins you have installed and so on. But the best is, just test it :)

    ab -c 50 -t 60

  • it really depends. As the MySQL query will be killer,10k PV at most in my opinion.

    I run my own company Stack Network Ltd, i am serious to business, talk to me on skype: colomx.

    depend on plugin you use, if you only use standart wp plugin (page cache installed), I think your vps can handle 1k-10k PV.

    Let's bet which dot-name will collapse first ;)
