Community Review: GoWEB 256 MB Xen PV

edited August 2011 in Reviews

Hey everyone, I'm going to try a new kind of review format out :)
Basically, I'll have a VPS and will do basic benchmarks and you guys can ask me to test certain things or ask me for views and opinions on the service! Please note this is my first review of a VPS, I looked at 96mb.com for inspiration (thanks for the blog, it's awesome!) and if anyone has suggestions please note them below :)

Anyway, for this review I have a 256 MB Xen PV GoWEB review server based in Germany. The base plan is 3.50 euros a month and comes with 256 MB RAM, 1 CPU Core, 5 GB HD and 100 GB bandwidth. Standard disclaimers apply: I am not affiliated with GoWEB in any way and this server was given to me for review purposes, it could have been rigged to perform faster then the usual plans.

Basics:

IRC is disallowed in the TOS (which can be found here: https://www.goweb.de/tos.php) which may discourage some people. Fortunately there doesn't appear to be anything about torrenting so as far as I know it's allowed (legal files only of course!) :)

Support:

Support was fast with my review VPS request being answered within half an hour (I sent the request via email and it was added to the WHMC ticket system automatically). In the first email support gave me the wrong IP (it was manually provisioned with me not having a Solus account) but after sending an email support sent me the correct details and reinstalled the server to Debian 6 as I requested (Unfortunately they only offer 32 bit Debian 6 so I had to request Debian 5 to do the tests). The setup email contained the password in plain text and requests to remove the network cap and add more inodes were met with a swift response (about 20 minutes) and the actions were carried out quickly.

Defaults:

Default RAM usage was fairly low with the install using maybe 30 MB of RAM after boot up (it seems to be a stock Debian install).

max:~# free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:           270         48        221          0          2         14
-/+ buffers/cache:         31        238
Swap:         1023          0       1023

Default disk usage was quite fairly low, I suspect that the Debian 6 install is simply a stock install.

max:~# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1            5.0G  634M  4.1G  14% /

tmpfs                 127M     0  127M   0% /dev/shm

Basic Information:

/proc/cpuinfo showed one usable core which matched the plan description well:

max:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo

cpu family      : 6

power management:

/proc/meminfo showed typical results as well:

Inode allocation was fairly good for a budget VPS (as far as I know, I don't have a great deal of experience with inode counts):

max:~# df -i
Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1            327680   18385  309295    6% /
tmpfs                  32363       4   32359    1% /lib/init/rw
udev                   27976     447   27529    2% /dev
tmpfs                  32363       1   32362    1% /dev/shm

After sending a message the count was increased:

max:~# df -i
Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1            983040   21069  961971    3% /
tmpfs                  34622       4   34618    1% /lib/init/rw
udev                   34622    1022   33600    3% /dev
tmpfs                  34622       1   34621    1% /dev/shm

VMStat showed good values:

max:~# vmstat
procs -----------memory---------- ---swap-- -----io---- -system-- ----cpu----
 r  b   swpd   free   buff  cache   si   so    bi    bo   in   cs us sy id wa

Tests:

Each test was run three times and the middle ranked test was picked.

Cachefly Speedtest (the network on the test VPS seems to have been limited, take this with a grain of salt):

max:~#  wget -O /dev/null http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test

Ping Tests (IPv6 didn't appear to work out of the box):

    Conclusion:

    GoWEB are an established player in the VPS market (as shown by LEA on this recent post: http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/goweb-e3-15-256mb-xen-vps-in-germany/) and this shows on their server offerings as the results are very good and support is great. Give them a try if you've been convinced and tell everyone how you go!

    Thanks for reading, please give me tips and suggestions :)

  • InfinityInfinity Member, Host Rep

    Really nice review, that pretty much covered everything that I'd need. I think this would be perfect if you bought every single budget VPS out there and reviewed it :P

  • Thanks for the comment :)
    Check out 96mb.com for similar reviews (it isn't my site but the guy has done a whole bunch of nice reviews!)

  • Very satisfied with GoWeb... really recommended

  • Great review! Thanks.

  • If anyone else wants me to review a host just ask, I would love to!

  • Just some updates on this:

    Support is still fast with most tickets being answered in under two hours.

    RAM Usage has stayed roughly the same.

    Tests:

    The Cachefly speed test was much faster:

    The Ping Test was slightly better:

    [email protected]:~# ping -c 3 google.com
    PING google.com (209.85.148.106) 56(84) bytes of data.

    rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1.789/1.970/2.254/0.203 ms
    

    Disk IO seemed to be slower (but still great):

    [email protected]:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync; rm test

    Hi Maxexcloo

    That's quite an in-depth review. Goweb's sustained 150MB/s+ is impressive.

    We would appreciate such a review on us.

    However, I'd like it to be more anonymous so there is no doubt about the results. Just sign up and pay as any "normal" client would so we won't know it's you.

    After you have posted the review, just send us the link and we will refund your payment.

  • How about pygrub? Do they support it on debian 6?

  • I don't have Solus access so I have no easy way to test it :\

  • Something I have to note about GoWEB is the lack of IPv6, hopefully they add it in the future...

  • I forgot the UNIXBench benchmark!
