Performance Grades

To summarize the performance of each VPS plan, we generated grades based on the various tests that were run: web, sysbench, endurance and remote timing tests. Each grade focuses on one aspect of the VPS speed or stability (cpu, disk IO, network IO...) and is made of one or more metrics measured during the tests.

Grades are evenly distributed between A and F. A is best, F is worst.

Follow the letter links to find the test results backing the grade.

Performance Consistency

The provider consistency score shows how much variation can be expected between 2 servers of the same type at the same provider. A high consistency score (>65) means the performance of all servers of the provider is consistent over many trials and many plans.

Providers who don't have enough data yet at VPSBenchmarks don't have a consistency score.

Katapult ORACLE Cloud
Consistency Score - 55

Performance in Depth...

These are some of the test results that are used to determine the grades above.

Web Response Times

We ran a database intensive web application at various levels of load on cloud servers from Katapult and ORACLE Cloud. This is the average response time measured locally on the VPS for each plan we tested.

Local Response Time per Plan

Lower is better

Maximum HTTP Load

We ran a database intensive web application at various levels of load on cloud servers from Katapult and ORACLE Cloud. This is the maximum rate of HTTP requests that each server handled without timing out.

Maximum HTTP request rate

Higher is better

During the Web Test, we collect response time metrics, rate metrics and CPU metrics. All of those are measured locally on the VPS running the web server. All metrics can be compared on the Web Performance Comparison page.

Sysbench CPU Performance

We ran the full suite of Sysbench tests on VPS plans of Katapult and ORACLE Cloud. These are the Sysbench CPU test results:

Rate of operations

Higher is better

Sysbench Disk IO Performance

We ran the full suite of Sysbench tests on VPS plans of Katapult and ORACLE Cloud. These are the Sysbench Disk IO Random Read test results:

Rate of operations

Higher is better

Sysbench test results are also available for random disk IO tests, sequential disk IO tests and memory tests.

Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the Katapult and ORACLE Cloud VPS and we measured the speed of downloads and uploads.

The transfers involve multiple files, 10 threads and last for at least 10 seconds at maximum speed. The transfers are repeated 3 times from different servers and only the fastest transfer is reported here.

Download Speed per Plan

Higher is better

Network Transfers measurements including download and upload speeds can be compared for Katapult and ORACLE Cloud on the Network Transfers Comparison page.

Sustained CPU Endurance Tests

We pushed the CPU of those VPS plans hard for 24 hours straight.

This test shows how fast the VPS can go for long periods of time, how stable the performance is and it also gives clues on how overallocated the VPSs may be.

Throughput variations of the endurance test over 24 hours. The coefficient of variation is the standard deviation of the test throughput divided by its average value. Low variations mean that resources allocated to the server were stable for the duration of the test and there was little contention.

Ops/hour coefficient of variation

Lower is better
