Compare VPS Plans Sysbench Performance

This page compares the results of Sysbench tests run on the selected VPS plans. Fio file io test results are also included in this page for plans where it's available.

The Sysbench tests measure the raw performance of CPU, memory and disk of the VM for a short period of time.

Sysbench Results

Learn how to read Sysbench test results

CPU Test

The cpu test is one of the most simple benchmarks in SysBench. In this mode each request consists in calculation of prime numbers up to a value specified by the --cpu-max-primes option. All calculations are performed using 64-bit integers. Each thread executes the requests concurrently until either the total number of requests or the total execution time exceed the limits specified with the common command line options.

CPU Intensive Operation Rate

Higher is better

cpu

Multithreaded


Sysbench File IO Tests

This test mode can be used to produce various kinds of file I/O workloads. At the prepare stage SysBench creates a specified number of files with a specified total size, then at the run stage, each thread performs specified I/O operations on this set of files.

Random Read/Write Rates

Read and Write tests are performed separately. Block size: 4k.

Higher is better

fileio

Random Read 4k,Random Write 4k


Combined Random Read+Write Rates

This is a combined test where reads and writes are performed at the same time. Block size: 4k.

Higher is better

fileio: Random Read-Write 4k

Read transfer rate, Write transfer rate


Sequential Read/Write Rates

Read and Write tests are performed separately. Block size: 128k.

Higher is better

fileio: Sequential Read 128k,Sequential Write 128k

Random Write Latencies

Only writes were performed during this test. Block size: 4k.

Lower is better

fileio: Random Write 4k
