About YABS

YABS "Yet-Another-Bench-Script", developed at, is an amazing tool that benchmarks your Linux server by running a single command. YABS reports performance numbers on CPU speed, network speed and disk IO speed using Geekbench, iperf3 and fio.

  • No root required.
  • No setup required.
  • Works out of the box on all recent CentOS, Debian, Fedora and Ubuntu versions.
  • A single command runs all the tests and prints the results in plain text.
  • Completes in 30 minutes max, generally around 10 minutes.

At VPSBenchmarks, we'll call the result of a run a "yab". Be sure to read the YABS Github page before creating your first yab.

You can collect, organize and visualize your yabs for free at VPSBenchmarks. Review the list of existing yabs.

How to create a new yab?

To create a new yab, store it and visualize it at VPSBenchmarks, you have 2 options:

  • Option 1: run on your server:
    curl -sL | bash
    and then copy and paste the output into the New Yab Form.

  • Option 2: run and upload the Yabs output from your server in one shot:
    curl -sL | bash > yabs.out
    curl -F "data=<yabs.out" -F "os_version=`lsb_release -s -d`"

    If successful, VPSBenchmarks response will include a URL where you can review your yab, set the provider name and the VPS plan name of the benchmarked server and visualize the results.

    For the yab to be linked to your account, you must be logged in when you submit the results.

How to Manage your Yabs?

If you were signed in when you created the new yab, you are the owner of the yab and you can decide to make it public or private, to delete it if desired and to edit its attributes.
