OVH VPS Cloud Disk I/O Performance
It's something horrible. There are pauses up to tens of seconds, where it's flat 0 IOPS. And if you're unlucky you'll hit those bumps one afther another. So then you'll get 15 seconds of 100 IOPS and then it drops to 0 for 35 seconds again.
It seems that their Ceph / NVMe storage system for VPS Cloud is completely falling apart at least in Strasbourg - SBG.
Has anyone else been having similar experiences? No this is not just one box, it's several dozens of VPSes ordered at different times and all of those are having totally nightmarish storage I/O data rates. 8 MB/s writes and reads between 0-20MB/s, but worst part is that it can be 0 MB/s for a minute or so.
I guess the only solution is to move out, helpdesk can't do anything about it. They've even claimed it's normal. But if that's normal, then OVH is absolute no no as a service provider. Issue report has been open on status for a long time. There's no information if this is going to change, or if this is actually the new normal.
