    What do you mean? Please explain in a bit more detail.

    Do you mean ; you think your VPS is causing a load issue and are asking how to check if it is you?

    Command: uptime

    You'll see something like this:

     20:00:58 up 8 days, 20 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.08, 0.02, 0.01
    

    Concern yourself with the first number of load average:. This number needs to be less than the number of cores available in your system. You can determine the number of cores available in your system with the following command: cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep MHz and counting the number of lines output.

    There are other ways to see load, such as the sysstat package. Sysstat will also show you disk i/o and other factors.

  • 2 days ago, I am contact my VPS Support Provider. I am asking about the loading of website on my VPS is slowly (I mean, regading net speed). And they reply: "This was due to a load hike in the host node,and we rectified the issue. At present we are getting a good speed in your VPS ,please see the below given snippet."

  • I am using an OpenVZ VPS from virpus

  • I guess that means there was a client causing an issue on the host node which caused an issue for you too.

  • What's the below given snippet?

  • The server as a whole was under a heavy load. Could be that you are on a node that is at capacity.

  • ahh the server might have been under a ddos and they null routed the ip.

  • well, I was try to setup a firewall (like, iptables) and change shh port. But, not help out

  • no, your on a shared port so more like a ddos on another vps that was getting attacked would also slow down your connection.

  • @24khost what do you mean shared port? I got 3 IPv4 Public from them and using it for my DNS

    if your using a vps it is 1 server and you share a network port. Has nothing to do with your ip's each vps does not get it's own network cable.

  • Oh, do you mean they was using load balancing methods and mixing on a hub? I am sorry, I still confused.

  • And, how about a dedicate VPS? does its have own cable?

  • Here is what a VPS is (best explanation I could find).

    Basically, you have no control over what is happening with the speed....only the provider that owns the host node does.

  • No provider is going to give you a dedicated link, especially with LEBs. This would require 20+ network cards and 20+ network cables per server, it just isn't going to happen. A gigabit port would help, but a heavy DDOS is likely to overload the router, not just the server.

    Might as well get a dedicated server in this case? Whatever server that has this will cost more than the 20+ servers.
