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.
  • Remote timings: latencies of a web application measured from 4 different continents.
  • Live Web Tests: latencies of a web application with live traffic.
  • 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.


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 - a1.medium VPS plan.

Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the Amazon EC2 - a1.medium 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.
