      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

  1. So you just got the setup email for the impulsive purchase you just couldn't resist. What next? ____________________________________________________________________________________________ One of the simplest ways to test network and I/O speeds is with the FreeVPS.us benchmark script! wget freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash For an extremely comprehensive benchmark, try ServerBear.com and their all-in-one performance test. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Just want to know how fast those disks are spinning (or how fast the SSDs are, err, working)? Test the I/O with this! dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync; rm test Let's check the disk I/O latency while we're at it... wget https://ioping.googlecode.com/files/ioping-0.6.tar.gz tar -xzvf ioping-0.6.tar.gz cd ioping-0.6/ make ioping ./ioping . -c 10 ...and the I/O seek rate... ./ioping -RD . ...and the sequential I/O speed... ioping -RL . ...and the cached I/O speed! ?ioping -RC . Want to simply know what the network speeds are like? Try downloading a test file from another server! wget cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test How about the processor that's being used? cat /proc/cpuinfo Make sure you've got every single KB of disk space your provider promised by using the command... df ...or you could check the disk space in GB's if you'd prefer! (Note: Space reserved by the OS may not be listed!) df -h ____________________________________________________________________________________________ This is not the place to post your benchmarks - go take a look at the reviews section of the forum and share your results there! Did I miss anything? Something I should add? Let me know! :)
  2. I continue to monkey with ARM platform. One area I am meh with gear I have at this point is disk performance. My Pi's, Odroids, etc. all are SD card installations. SD cards are rather meh as general purpose disk at this point in history. Looking for some recommendations. Does anyone have an eMMC ARM device, a NAND based, some hybrid SSD, etc. that performs decently well? Running MySQL / MariaDB on these devices - lots of writes like thousands one after another at times. Small sized data. Optimized that by killing InnoDB / converting databases to MyISAM which made a big difference. Some other optimizations might happen, but I am hitting a wall soon either way and performance is less than I can tolerate. Anyone have anything I might enjoy?
