      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

Dedicated Ram

Question

hello vpsboard may I ask if how can this be true? https://lowendbox.com/blog/yes-you-can-run-18-static-sites-on-a-64mb-link-1-vps/ and I inspect the site and he is using Xen 64mb dedicated ram . Does it mean my VPS with 512mb ram (KVM) is having more ram than what he have on the article? is dedicated ram more powerful than just a ram ?

There are three "types" of RAM with VPS allocations.  

Dedicated RAM is JUST that, RAM that you can use whenever/however you like. A VPS containing 1GB of dedicated RAM means you can have up to 1GB of usage with no "slow down" (assuming you're not trying to use more RAM, CPU is fine, and etc) 

Burstable RAM is a "grey" area of RAM allocation as it hard to estimate just how much of this is at your "disposal". BASICALLY the VPS provider set up a separate "pool"  of RAM just for this purpose. Then whenever the machine is underloaded this pool may be "drained" by ALL the VPSes on it. BUT not only it is shared among other VPSes you will also be limited by it. For example a VPS that have 1GB RAM and 2GB Burstable means you have 1GB "rain or shine" and 2GB "at best". 

The last one is not located at RAM at all but somewhat confused referred as  "SWAP" or "Paged" RAM. These allocations are basically a LOT slower (Even if decent SSDs are used for these allocations) than "native" RAM. Nothing "bad" having a bit of this at your disposal as some processes can "offload" to this and still operate just fine. However some CRAP provider saying you get 256MB RAM and 8GB of "SWAP/Paged RAM" is not going to get you any real "mileages".

The "short version" is try to stay away from Burstable and spend your good money on dedicated RAM.

my plan doesn't say it is burstable so its safe? I'm just intrigue about the article and if he can do that on a 64mb dedicated ram then I can put more than 18 static site on my 512mb?

Yes you SHOULD be getting dedicated RAM if nothing is stated otherwise and you're actually paying for it as well (don't expect dedicated RAM at less than $3/GB or similar pricing).  

The load that your 512MB RAM VPS can take "on" depends on other factors beside the mere MBs that you have... 

CPU, drive(s) configurations, disk I/O, and allocation of the mentioned things all plays in the determination of how much "strain" your VPS can take.  

Oh and of course the sites/optimization steps you take within the VPS and websites will make your "mileages varies" as well.

No problems! For that price I would expect it to be 100% dedicated as well.

      Running another out of box clean PHP-FPM instance.   
       
      Having issue where randomly PHP bursts up, smacks VPS RAM ceiling and PHP goes nuts/non responsive.
       
      For those that tinker with PHP and do so on limited RAM servers --- what are the tweaks you recommend to keep PHP within RAM limits and well behaved?
