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

Live Web

Web performance is measured locally on the VPS and includes Rails app response times to live web traffic as well as system metrics.

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 Microsoft Azure - F2s v2 VPS plan.

Remote Timings

Response times for this VPS were continuously measured from 5 locations and 4 continents in the world. Each measure includes DNS resolution time, connection time, TLS handshake time and server response time.

Review and compare all Remote Timings numbers for the Microsoft Azure - F2s v2 VPS plan.

Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the Microsoft Azure - F2s v2 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 Microsoft Azure - F2s v2 VPS plan.
