SwitchVM - Benchmarks?

edited August 2012 in General

Hello,

SwitchVM will be launching extremely soon, and I'd like 2-3 people to do some benchmarks for me, as I know you like doing that!

If you would like to take part, just reply to this post and I'll PM you with details.

Thanks guys!
Dominic

    Benchmark on an empty node? Big deal.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

    I didn't say somebody had to do them. I was asking if somebody could ;)

  • What makes you think this will work better than GuernseyHosting?

  • TazTaz Member

    But what would you get by benchmarking an empty node?

    Because Guernsey Hosting didn't have enough money to start up, and therefore was making a loss. Even if I am going to make a loss to start with (which all hosts do), I will have the money to carry on renewing.

    We aren't reselling VPS's (when GSYHosting did, it was painful).

    Results. I just want to see other people think it performs for them, and how it does perform

    Empty node Benchmark != Real usage, once you atleast feel it upto 50%, that
    benchmark will only be able to prove something.
    I might be wrong.

    Ah OK, fair enough. I'll wait until i'm 50-60% full and then ask a few to benchmark then :)

  • SimpleNodeSimpleNode Member, Provider

    I agree.

    We were getting over 240MB/s Disk I/O on an empty node, but only around 180MB/s now that our node is 75% full.

    You are not wrong. The point of the initial benchmarks* on empty node is to check if everything is actually okey with the hardware (for example RAID10 node, having 50MB/s read/write speeds on dd test) and eventually to compare once it is empty and once it is full. That should be done by 1 person only, the owner/staff member.

    I did a KVM beta testing a month ago - the purpose was not benchmarks, but ot see how the node performs under load, which is something that most hosts should do, when stepping into new waters (as it was KVM for me).

    Thanks for the input guys. I'll get somebody to test when this node is about 50-60% full.

  • Thanks for the laugh dom

  • @Taz_NinjaHawk said: atleast feel it upto 50%

    If you are going to be feeling up the node, please take it to the server porn thread

  • Sounds funny :)

    I'm still waiting for this topic:

    "SwitchVM - Stock??"

  • You should be benchmarking yourself before launch imo. That's the only way to tune performance.

    If your using SecuredServers... then just go get a gigabit port for your VPS node. It's only $5.
