Evaluate your own servers with Private Trials.
The same benchmarks that run on all VPS at vpsbenchmarks.com will run on your own servers. The results are private and are saved in your account to let you compare them to your other private trials or to any public trial at any time.
Regular and Modular Private Trials
After a private trial setup completes, you will have to choose between a "Regular Private Trial" or a "Modular Private Trial".
Regular Private Trial: It's the same as a public trial, the 4 usual tests run in sequence and the trial receives grades when all 4 tests have completed. It's ideal to verify that the VPS you just bought performs as expected.
Modular Private Trial: This type of private trial is for expert users who want to choose which tests to run and repeat those tests as many times as needed. Modular Private Trials don't receive grades but each test result can be compared to other test results of the same type. If you're a provider, this is the best solution to tune your systems incrementally and get the best performance out of them.
To run a private trial, you need private trial credits, which you can buy here.
Regular Private Trial cost: 1 credit.
Modular Private Trial cost: 0.25 credit per test with a minimum of 1 credit for the entire trial.
A detailed description of private trials can be found in this article.

To be able to setup the server and runs the benchmarks, there are a few requirements:
- The server runs Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04 x64.
- The server accepts SSH connections on port 22.
- The server has at least 1GB RAM.
- The server has at least 20GB disk storage on the root partition.
- If not root, the user must have full sudo privileges.
Important: We try hard to leave the server in the same state that we found it but to eliminate risks, some packages may be left behind. We strongly advise to remove all private data from the server before giving its connection information to vpsbenchmarks.com.

The first private trial for a new account is just $2. Subsequent single private trials are $10 each.
Featured providers get a 20% discount on the prices above.
A regular private trial will take approximately a day and a half to run all the tests (web, sysbench, network and endurance). When it completes, grades are calculated and can be compared to other trials at vpsbenchmarks.com.
In a modular private trial, the first test you decide to run can be complete in less than an hour.
