Test Results

  • Web Runs: performance of a web application running on the server with locally generated load. Latencies and max request rate.
  • Sysbench: CPU, disk IO and memory speed tests.
  • Endurance: output over time of a long running cpu intensive application.
  • Network Transfers: maximum download and upload speeds between the VPS and servers located nearby.

Web Runs

During the Web Run tests, a web application is loaded with locally generated HTTP requests at various rates. We measure latencies and rate of errors at each load level.

Review and compare Amazon EC2 - c6a.large web runs with other cloud providers.


Sysbench

We ran Sysbench tests on this VPS, including CPU tests, random and sequential, read and write IO tests and memory tests.

Review and compare all Sysbench numbers for the Amazon EC2 - c6a.large VPS plan.

Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the Amazon EC2 - c6a.large VPS, both downloads and uploads and we measured the speed of the transfers.

The transfers involve multiple files, 10 threads and last for at least 10 seconds at maximum speed. The transfers are repeated 4 times from different nearby servers and only the fastest transfer is considered in grades and comparisons.

Sustained CPU Endurance Run

Can your VPS handle 24 hours of sustained CPU load without flinching? How much can it handle? Does the provider throttle your CPU after a while?

Review and compare all Endurance numbers for the Amazon EC2 - c6a.large VPS plan.
