    Low priced yearly plans in Estonia? You've got my attention.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

  • I have a 128 XEN with them for few months, port limits to 6M if I remembrance was right, and server quite reliable, going to get a KVM this time :)

    How many stars in your bowl? How many sorrows in your soul?
  • 5hi745hi74 Member

    great offer,but can the old annual kvm plan be upgraded?

  • tcreutcreu Member

    great provider. fast and reliable

  • custom plans or exra IPv4 addresses?
    2 or 3 KVM/XEN L0 merged together would be great.
    Basically I don't need a lot of disk and bw but I need more IPv4 and 512+MB of RAM.

    183 VPS tested in real time and counting... (86 active LEB providers).
    All links I'm posting are tracked affiliate links, whenever the provider has an affiliate program.

    @Ruriko: Loading the CPU to the maximum for prolonged periods of time is not allowed as the cores are not dedicated. Since encoding video would load it to maximum, this is not allowed.
    Upgrading cores is possible, but it is not cost effective compared to buying the next plan.
    Ping to Australia is indeed high because it goes via the USA. It would best to pick a US based offer for you.

    @AstroProfundis: The port speed should be 100mbps, so 11-12M should be achievable depending on your location. Could you please open a ticket or send a PM with your IP so we could check for packet loss to your location.
    @5hi74: Existing packages which were not bough as part of previous promotions can be upgraded (you are talking about data transfer amount?). Please open a ticket and we will upgrade you.

    @hostingwizard_net: Additional IPs are possible, but custom plans are not possible at this time. Thank you for the suggestion for another plan. We may consider it in the future to have a low disk space plan, but with higher RAM.

  • LAKidLAKid Member

    @torqhost manual provision?

  • @torqhost said: Could you please open a ticket or send a PM with your IP so we could check for packet loss to your location

    I just checked, no problem now, could be some very old issue or I was mixed with my memory :)

    How many stars in your bowl? How many sorrows in your soul?
  • @LAKid yes, provision is manual.

  • @AstroProfundis We changed to Linx Telecom last month. The network quality has actually improved since then.

  • How do you select USA as the location?
    Do you have windows template?

  • @Ruriko You could look at lowendbox.com for USA offers. We do not have US based servers.
    There are no Windows templates as we do not have a SPLA agreement with Microsoft.

    Update: All the KVMs have been sold. Surprisingly 1GB and 2GB RAM KVM plans were the most popular.
    Plenty of Xen and OpenVZ are left.

    @torqhost said: @AstroProfundis We changed to Linx Telecom last month. The network quality has actually improved since then.

    Oh, did not know that. I guess that would/could be the reason why my latency to Torqhost has more than doubled (I'm located in Finland) within the past few weeks or so ?

    Before, it was consistently (for several weeks) ~10ms on average, now within the past ~10 days it's been 16ms, then 1-2 days later 23ms, then ~30ms and now back to 22ms.

    I've been checking it with 'just-ping', as there is another Finnish location on their test list, to make sure it's not my connection (unless they're using the same ISP, not sure as there's no IP address shown). When my latency was ~10ms, their latency was very similar, when my latency was ~30ms, theirs was very close to that etc.

    Tracing route to torqhost.com [80.79.127.18]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    1 8 ms 8 ms 7 ms 10.20.8.1
    2 9 ms 7 ms 8 ms 141.208.212.177
    3 97 ms 8 ms 11 ms hkiasbr1-s0-0-0.datanet.tele.fi [141.208.8.10]
    4 9 ms 7 ms 42 ms hls-b1-link.telia.net [213.248.68.209]
    5 15 ms 17 ms 16 ms s-bb1-link.telia.net [80.91.251.33]
    6 16 ms 15 ms 16 ms s-b2-link.telia.net [80.91.246.149]
    7 15 ms 15 ms 15 ms level3-ic-155475-s-b2.c.telia.net [213.248.99.134]
    8 16 ms 16 ms 15 ms LINX-TELECO.bar1.Stockholm1.Level3.net [213.242.110.78]
    9 18 ms 16 ms 16 ms r9-ae4-0-Sto-TC-SE.linxtelecom.net [212.47.201.193]
    10 22 ms 22 ms 21 ms r9-ae5-0-Tln-TIX-EE.linxtelecom.net [212.47.201.121]
    11 22 ms 21 ms 21 ms 195.222.7.174
    12 24 ms 23 ms 24 ms 80.79.118.194
    13 22 ms 24 ms 23 ms mail.torqhost.com [80.79.127.18]

    The route/ping is identical to my actual VPS, except for the last hop obviously. I don't have a tracert saved from when the ping was ~10ms, but I'm pretty sure it was < 10 hops then.

    Oh well, it's still a pretty good latency and the first KVM I got has been stable so I ordered another one. Was just wondering why the sudden bump in ping. :-)

    Thanks.

    @pottu The ping for Finland depends on your ISP and in a lot of cases it is smaller. For example pinging helsinki.fi from the server shows 13ms, the same happens with finland.fi although they seem to be hosted in different DCs. Ping to Elisa Finland network is still 12-14ms. The hop increase was to be expected because Linx traffic goes to Sweden and then back to Finland (around +5ms was expected).

  • Sorry I didn't mean that if you provided windows license I actually meant do you have a windows template where the user can enter their own license key

  • @Ruriko I am sorry, but this is not possible. We would provide Windows only if we have proper licensing in place.

    XenPV level 1++ result: http://serverbear.com/benchmark/2013/03/05/wRx9xaqG3xrCzxfq

    @pottu seems that some traffic goes via Sweden from Finland, but for example DNA goes straight.

  • NeoNeo Banned

    I bougt 2, 1x 256KVM and 1x 512MB KVM both running like a charm.
    On the 512MB im running a littel Gameserver without laggs for 15Euros per Year awesome.

  • Be careful while doing a serverbear benchmark hence my KVM VPS has been suspended due to "Your server was suspended for extreme IO abuse. Heavily writing / reading from disk is not allowed as it is a shared resource. "

    @torqhost @serverbear

  • Yes, the benchmark tripped the IO latency alarm. The issue was caused because there were OS installations going on at the time on the node and the benchmark caused a latency increase.

    I feel it is best we do monitoring for this instead of letting individual servers cause performance degradation on the node.

  • LAKidLAKid Member

    @torqhost Hope you terminate those running any benchmarks for other's sake.
    What's the point of running benchmark anyway?

  • @LAKid Nobody got terminated, we stopped the server and notified the user. Do you feel we should let our customers be the sensors and report poor performance instead of monitoring it?

  • LAKidLAKid Member

    @torqhost I think either way is fine and what you're doing is perfect for me.
    You'll get less annoying clients and tickets because you've already stopped the abuser.

  • @LAKid

    To have comparable information about the VPS.

    @torqhost

    It is unsuspended.Now I am testing only download & upload speed.I hope it will not be suspended due to bandwidth abuse :D

    Btw Its nice to see you have sensitive monitoring this is the first time my VPS suspended while benchmarking as i have used serverbear script to test over 20 VPS.

    @imperio I still don't understand, so you have those numbers now, so what?
    It may change tomorrow or day after, also you already paid for a full year, so what if those numbers are low, are you going to ask refund?
    What's the point other than slowing down other customers' box?

  • @LAKid

    The reason we chose to do monitoring vs letting the users report it, is because it would seem a large percentage of people would simply not report the problem at all and either cancel or simply leave it as is and remember the poor performance.
    With LET crowd it seems to be less of an issue as the community is knowledgeable in terms of optimizations, but we have a lot of users who just use defaults for things like mysql for example. With large, busy databases, the default settings will absolutely kill performance.
    In terms of IO we monitor only latency to disk array, as this is the thing that matters (sequential, e.g. dd, doesn't really matter in real use based on statistical data we collected over the years).

    @imperio You would not be suspended for bandwidth abuse, this would not be a problem :)
    The benchmark would also normally not trigger an alarm. Because of the promotion here we provisioned many servers in a short time span and they were also busy with OS installs, etc, so this compounded with the benchmark caused the alarm.

  • imperioimperio Member
    edited March 2013

    @LAKid

    It is an early check if your VPS is performing poor or not.And also DD, IO ping and FIO tests finish at most 10 minutes on a healthy VPS. I guess i can peak my VPS for just 10 minutes if i paid monthly or yearly as 10 minutes peak usage can not be called as abuse.

    @imperio said: To have comparable information about the VPS.

    These "benchmark" tests are not valid for comparing VPS.

    Valid comparisons can only be done in a controlled environment, and it is obviously impossible for an end user to control the server environment (cf. Scientific control).

    If this benchmark had been allowed to run to completion it would have shown "poor" disk performance, and the conclusion would be "Torqhost IO sucks!" -- which is obviously an invalid conclusion.

    @LAKid

    I answered you before.10 minutes peak usage can not be called as abuse.VPS is a shared environment if the customer requests %100 resources dedicated to him 24/7/365 he should buy a dedicated server not VPS.

  • @imperio said: I am professional enough to judge and compare VPS correctly.

    That's good. But lots of people aren't and simply accept the numbers as gospel.

    I am not doing scientific research nor this is rocket science.

    Which doesn't change the fact that in a uncontrolled environment benchmark testing produces questionable results.

  • imperioimperio Member
    edited March 2013

    We are on lowendtalk and so I assume we know how to run, judge and optimize things in limited and shared environments.

  • @imperio Actually even doing something for a short period of time that causes bad effects for other users is considered abuse. This is part of the definition for the word abuse.
    10 minutes of peak usage also subjective. CPU peak usage for 10 minutes is nothing as there is plenty of reserve, but peak IO usage for 10 minutes that causes high latency increases is significant.

    But I think this has gone a bit offtopic now.

  • imperioimperio Member
    edited March 2013

    @torqhost

    Limiting I/O usage per customer is more good idea then monitoring and suspending.I expect 10 minutes peak cpu, I/O or bandwidth usage from any provider as it is provider's responsibility to share resources fairly when someone or all the customers are peaking.

  • @imperio

    There are also implications for limiting and "fairly sharing" resources (you can read about unmetered shared gigabit connections which is the same principle and issues encountered there). Basically there is no solution here that would make everyone happy and everyone can choose what fits their needs best. If you are not happy with the server, please contact us via a ticket and refunding it is not an issue.

  • @imperio said: Be careful while doing a serverbear benchmark hence my KVM VPS has been suspended due to "Your server was suspended for extreme IO abuse. Heavily writing / reading from disk is not allowed as it is a shared resource. "

    Sorry to hear, this has only ever happened on 1 other occasion (that we've been notified of), seen plenty of benches from Torq in the past.

    Solid provider, good support and uptime. Great offer too.

    @torqhost can we renew at this prices?

    I am very happy with my KVM Level 1, specially since the migration to Linx Telecom and would like to know if it's possible to apply the coupon to my existing plan for the renewals.

  • @Nyr Thank you.

    If your renewal is close (within 1-1.5 months), sure, we can apply the coupon. If it is not close, it is best to contact sales to discuss the options. It is possible to still use the coupon, but whether it makes sense depends on how far you are in your term. If you open a billing ticket, we can calculate it for you.

    Calculate what? He want new discounted pricing (15 EUR / year) for renewal after payment for current year expire not to apply coupon for existing payment ;-)

    Btw. hardly waiting IPv6. This will rocks!

  • @Spirit As explained, we can apply the coupon if renewal date is within 1.5 months. Otherwise, the service needs to be cancelled and re-ordered with the coupon, so calculate how much is left in the current term.

    KVM won't be restocked anymore?
    I have a little Xen one and was considering to change it for a KVM with this offer :P
