      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

What services are running?

  • lighttpd
  • openvpn
  • cron + phython
  • sendmail
  • ruby worker

Support:

One ticket to get the latest FreeBSD image.

 

Overall experience:

A snappy vps with a ok network connection.

 

Update status:

aheadkvm1.JPG

0 minutes of network downtime since the first month.
Uptime of the vps itself is 1 day. I rebooted the server today to check my rc.conf and shutdown the server for 1 day because my pf.conf was not ready yet. 

CPU and I/O are good.

Network is ok for EU connections. Ok for a i3d reseller.

I will refresh the uptime report every two months.

Time for an update:

aheadkvm2.JPG

3 days and 43 minutes of network downtime since the last update.

I switched off the vps on 2015-10-09 - so this is not a real downtime.
