QuickWeb VPS Benchmark

Unix Benchmark results from QuickWeb using unixbench v 5.1.2. QuickWeb offers 2 Core i5 750 @ 2.67GHz cores on their Germany node.

Brilliant result!. I am really impressed with the benchmark numbers because this is pretty close to the benchmark results of 1024MB OpenVZ with another provider that I posted earlier.

Specs: 512MB OpenVZ running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32bit

HazeNet VPS Benchmark (latest from their XEON nodes)

Update (14-May-2011): HazeNet has been taken over by ThrustVPS / Rus Foster. Read more about it here

This benchmark is #2 in the series from HazNet, the previous one was done on their Core2Quad series and this one is on their latest XEON nodes.

Unix Benchmark results from HazNet using unixbench v 5.1.2. HazeNet offers 4 cores on their 1024 and 2048 packages.

Specs: 1024MB OpenVZ running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32bit

Spacerich VPS Benchmark

Update (26-Aug-2010): From my experience, they have very huge iowait and hence I/O problems on their VPS servers. You have to wait for like 10-15 seconds for a ‘uptime’ command to execute which is pretty pathetic. So in my opinion, it was useless for me.

Unix Benchmark results from Spacerich (OpenVZ running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32bit on their Munich, Germany node) using unixbench v 5.1.2

Specs: 256MB / 25GB OpenVZ running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32bit

Note: Being in Europe, it has the best response time to Asia especially Pakistan

ThrustVPS XEN HVM Benchmark

Update (25-Aug-2010): Rus Foster from ThrustVPS.com is a blackmailer and a person with low self-esteem. He actually blackmailed me to hand him over certain domain names which he thinks believes is breaching the AUP. My accounts, VPS and the $60 of affiliate commission was terminated. I will advise everyone to KEEP AWAY from Rus Foster and ThrustVPS.com (click here to read the full review)

Unix Benchmark results from ThrustVPS (XEN HVM running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on their West Coast (LA) node) using unixbench v 5.1.2

Specs: 512MB / 15GB XEN HVM running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32bit

Note: Although the test results from the previous bechmark on their XEN PV is just average, this one is the best benchmark I had on a 512MB VPS ever!

RackVM Benchmark

Alert: (05-Sep-2010) RackVM is/was a shady business and Ben, owner of RackVM, has run away with hundreds of client’s payments. As of today, all of their nodes are down. Ben just tricked everyone to his per annum offers and ran away with cash in hand. Unfortunately, I was also one of these victims.

Unix Benchmark results from RackVM using unixbench v 5.1.2

Specs: 128MB / 10GB XEN PV running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
The most amazing part? well, I got this VPS for just 6pounds bi-annually (6 months), thats 1 pound per month 🙂

Note: Although their servers are Core2Quad, I have access to 4 cores and the benchmark results (as compared with my QuickWeb 128MB XEN PV) are very good

HazeNet Benchmark

Update (14-May-2011): HazeNet has been taken over by ThrustVPS / Rus Foster. Read more about it here

Update (29-Aug-2010): Please check the latest benchmark results from their XEON node, pretty awesome for a 1024MB VPS.

Unix Benchmark results from HazeNet VPS using unixbench v 5.1.2 (please note that these are Quad-Core benchmark and not the new i7s and XEON that they are offering)

Specs: 1GB / 50GB OpenVZ

How to install byte-unixBench on Ubuntu

From UnixBench project homepage:

UnixBench is the original BYTE UNIX benchmark suite, updated and revised by many people over the years.

The purpose of UnixBench is to provide a basic indicator of the performance of a Unix-like system; hence, multiple tests are used to test various aspects of the system’s performance. These test results are then compared to the scores from a baseline system to produce an index value, which is generally easier to handle than the raw scores. The entire set of index values is then combined to make an overall index for the system.

Some very simple graphics tests are included to measure the 2D and 3D graphics performance of the system.

Multi-CPU systems are handled. If your system has multiple CPUs, the default behaviour is to run the selected tests twice — once with one copy of each test program running at a time, and once with N copies, where N is the number of CPUs. This is designed to allow you to assess:

* the performance of your system when running a single task
* the performance of your system when running multiple tasks
* the gain from your system’s implementation of parallel processing

Do be aware that this is a system benchmark, not a CPU, RAM or disk benchmark. The results will depend not only on your hardware, but on your operating system, libraries, and even compiler.

First install required libraries for compilation :

apt-get install libx11-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libxext-dev perl  perl-modules make

Then get the unixbench and run it :

wget http://byte-unixbench.googlecode.com/files/unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
tar xvf unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
cd unixbench-5.1.2
./Run
