Another LetBox KVM VPS Free Trial Review

Hi there,

I would like to give LetBox KVM VPS Free Trial feedback from @key900 . I had fresh install Debian 8 before the test. Below is the specification:

root@debian:~# wget --no-check-certificate https://vhwinfo.com/vhwinfo.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash
____
_____/ __ ___ _______ ____________

/ / vHWINFO 1.1 May 2015 | https://vhwinfo.com

dnsdomainname: Name or service not known
hostname: debian. (public ip )
SO: Debian GNU/Linux 8.8 (jessie) 64 bits
kernel: 3.16.0-4-amd64
virtual: KVM
cpu: Common KVM processor
vcpu: 2 cores / 6600.21 bogomips
RAM: 1000 MB (49% used) / swap 0 MB (0% used)
HD: 16G (8% used) / inkling speed 1.5 GB/s
cachefly 10MB: 65.8 MB/s (probably Gigabit Port)


VPS specification is very good. I think the CPU should be 1 core. I don't know why vHWInfo read it as 2 cores processor.

Then I do memory usage check:

root@debian:~# time free -h
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 1.0G 150M 849M 24M 26M 71M
-/+ buffers/cache: 52M 947M
Swap: 0B 0B 0B

real 0m0.002s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.000s


Then I do storage usage check:

root@debian:~# time df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1 15G 864M 14G 7% /
udev 10M 0 10M 0% /dev

tmpfs 501M 0 501M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup

real 0m0.003s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.000s


Then I do apt-get update and upgrade:

root@debian:~# time apt-get update

sys 0m3.848s


Then do DD to test storage performance:

root@debian:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=sb-io-test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync; rm -rf sb-io-test
16384+0 records in
16384+0 records out

root@debian:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=sb-io-test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync; rm -rf sb-io-test
16384+0 records in
16384+0 records out
1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 0.749328 s, 1.4 GB/s

root@debian:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=sb-io-test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync; rm -rf sb-io-test
16384+0 records in
16384+0 records out
1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 0.788809 s, 1.4 GB/s


Storage performace is very good, 1.4 GB/s , this is epic. Then I do benchmark from FreeVPS script to test storage and network:

root@debian:~# wget freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash
Benchmark started on Tue May 16 13:45:44 EDT 2017
Full benchmark log: /root/bench.log

Network performance is good on 1 Gbps port.

Then I do Nench benchmark to test cpu performance beside storage performance and network performance:

root@debian:~# wget -qO- wget.racing/nench.sh | bash

-------------------------------------------------


I don't know why some IPv4 speed test server have zero connection. Maybe @key900 can give the explanation. IPv6 performance is good. CPU performace is very fast.

Then I do PetaByet benchmark:

root@debian:~# cd && curl -4k https://www.petabyet.com/ptb.sh > ptb.sh && chmod +x ptb.sh && ./ptb.sh 'LA+KVM+Free+Trial' '9999' 'LetBox' '59897xxx' && rm -f ptb.sh

Then I do ServerScope.io benchmark:

root@debian:~# bash <(curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/serverscope/serverscope-benchmark/master/install-serverscope.sh ) -uvc -e "xxxxx@gmail.com" -p "KVM Free Trial|LetBox"

The benchmark is complete!

Last but not least is I do trace route from Indonesia. The route seem

C:UsersChocolateshirt>tracert la.bau.xxx

It took 16 hops from my location to VPS in the Psychz Networks. It took more route compared with my VPS in Los Angeles, which is only 11 hops. But overall the VPS performace is very good.

I think my short feedback is enough. Thank you @key900 .

Choco
