All Trials

During each trial, the response times and system metrics of a public website are continuously measured and recorded. At the end of the trial, Sysbench tests are run and the results are available from the trial page.

A trial is for a single VPS provider on a single VPS plan and lasts for several days, generally one week.

OS and kernel vary between provider and plans. The web application, ruby and rails are upgraded when new versions become available but stay the same for the entire trial duration.
