How to check your VPS Performance


New Member
I bought a VPS some months ago. Although my web hosting showed me featured and statistics about your VPS but I have still wanted to know exact things about my VPS getting. But how to check VPS performance, after some researches, I have some easy ways to check my VPS performance :D

Check the number of the number of cores, processor, CPU speed..etc on your VPS

Although these parameters showed out their websites and you can see them before you buy, but it's best to manually check whether these parameters coincide with things you are paying for.

To view the number of processors, you can use the command to check with nproc, after entering the command, the server will return the results as the number of processors are available.

That means you have 4 processors on a server.

To test more parameters such as CPU speed, number of cores, cache,..etc. Using the following command:

less /proc/cpuinfo
For example, the result returned:
processor: 0
vendor_id: GenuineIntel
cpu family: 6
model: 60
model name: Intel (R) Xeon (R) CPU 3.40GHz @ v3 E3-1231
stepping: 3
cpu MHz: 3400.321
cache size: 8192 KB
physical id: 0

fpu_exception: yes

Press Ctrl + Z to exit.

It is the manipulation of test performance server that I use most often because of the thorough inspection will help you not to waste your money because sometimes, we spent money to buy one VPS or Dedicated is not cheap. Hopefully it will be more useful to you. :D
