hdparm -t /dev/vda

test1:
/dev/vda:
Timing buffered disk reads: 8 MB in 3.84 seconds = 2.08 MB/sec

test2:
/dev/vda:
Timing buffered disk reads: 18 MB in 5.05 seconds = 3.57 MB/sec

test3:

/dev/vda:
Timing buffered disk reads: 10 MB in 3.80 seconds = 2.63 MB/sec

cant belivable!!!
its challenge to use

  • Can you try yabs ?

    yes, yabs show network is ok, disk still several mb/s

  • Yah well post the output here

  • disclare my vps location is Los Angeles. other location I dont know yet

  • Just post the yabs please :-D

    If you think that, behind the curtain, having to manage all those floppy disks by hand is easy...

    I dont know why its shows about 100-150mb/s, but when i copy file its only 1-3mb/s

  • Yeh. Learn to wait for ticket responsed. These promotion plans come with literally slow support. The provider has made this very transparent.

    Best bet: our thoughts and prayers to see you get a resolution soon

    I dont know why its shows about 100-150mb/s, but when i copy file its only 1-3mb/s

    YABS is reading a file that it has just written so it will be in the SSD cache

    Tools like ioping tell the whole story, these storage servers are only 10-40 iops in the worst case, around half an old hard disk. Disk latency similar at around 20ms on a good day up to near 100ms when shit is hitting the fan

    I’ve been through periods where the real world download perf is single digit MB/s, but it always returns to normal after a few days. Probably someone hammering it or a bad disk

    Over a year of ownership it has been slow in real world use for under 5% of the time, and never slow enough to be completely unusable. I wouldn’t take these figures as how it will always be

    Similar results here on disk.

    Seems like just the 4K and 64K performance sucks. 512K and 1M are just fine for normal storage VPS use for a backup cold store, not a production storage for a heavy traffic site or something.

    4K and 64K are on the low, but how many thousands of small files does one plan on writing/reading?

    So long as storing/retrieving large files is good enough, this storage VPS is good enough. If you want faster/better storage, pay more than $3/mo !

    I admit, using the server, installing packages, etc. etc. is about as slow as if you were on a Kimsufi KS-1, but still usable. I'm not using it as a production server. I'm only looking to store 2TB worth of cold store backup data here, and the files are usually archived and pretty large, so 4k/64K performance hit for me is not really an issue, .... but maybe.

    For daily use, it maybe nice if they allowed alpine Linux. It's small, tiny, fast, secure, the package manager is fast, from in memory to disk unpacking, not like apt or another where it downloads to disk first, then unpacks. Alpine would be a good daily driver for this storage box.

    Is it worth it to open support ticket and ask them about this? Is the server unusable for you? If so, how?

    Not the worst, it's definitely enough to run rsync / rclone at a very reasonable speed.

  • I'd rather have poor performance than no performance at all (still waiting for provisioning).
