Does Linux distribution influence network speed?
Just find something interesting.
Today, when I use Centos5 x86 on Digtalocean, I did a network speed test by :
wget --no-check-certificate freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null | bash
then get result for 4.5 mb/s from Cachefly and other locations around 2-3 mb/s.
When I change to Centos6 x86 and Detian8 X86, doing the same thing , then result become 22 mb/s from cachefly and other locations around 5-8 mb/s. Just 5 times more.
I didn't test on Ubuntu.
What's wrong here? Just curious... Is this a issue related to OS or just DO template problem or anything else?
My vps current in Singapore, all systems are tested several times with clean install. and in a same instance, tests are done in a short time period, so the reason should not because of time change.
Any ideas? I don't have other IDCs to do this test, you may try on others
