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.
Easy to run
Simply enter the SSH connection information to your Debian or Ubuntu instance, push the "Setup" button and then the "Benchmark" button. You're done, the results will be ready for you to review when the tests complete.
Your information is safe: only you can see the results of your trial and we delete the SSH connection information from our database after the private trial completes.
Keep track of all your trials
The results of all your Private Trials stay in your account for as long as you wish. You can review them at any time. You can share private links to your trials with your friends or colleagues. Finally, you can delete your private trials when they're no longer relevant.
Cloud Providers: optimize your servers
If you're a cloud provider, the faster your servers are, the most you will get of your Featured Provider subscription and the happier your customers will be. Test your servers first with a Private Trial. Tests and grades on private trials are generated the same way as those of public trials that are part of your subscription.
Run a private trial once, tune your infrastructure and repeat until the trial performance is up to your expectations.
Compare the results of all your Private Trials
Once you have run several trials, you can compare their results either in the Screener or in the various test specific comparison pages (Compare Web Runs, Compare Sysbench, ...).
Private trial results can also be compared to any public trial from any provider tested at VPSBenchmarks.
Regular and Modular Private Trials
After a private trial setup completes, you can choose between a "Regular Private Trial" or a "Modular Private Trial".
Regular Private Trial: It's the same as a public trial, the 5 usual tests run in sequence and the trial receives grades when all 5 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.
The first private trial credit for a new account is just $4. Subsequent single private trial credits are $10 each.
Featured providers get a 20% rebate on the prices above.

These are the requirements to setup the server and runs the benchmarks:
- The server runs Debian 11, Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04 or 22.04 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 connection user must have full sudo privileges (passwordless sudo).
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.
A regular private trial will take approximately a 26 hours to run all the tests (yabs, 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, each individual test you decide to run will complete in less than an hour (except for the Endurance test).
A detailed description of private trials can be found in this article. See also in depth description of Modular Private Trials.
