    Hello, is this possible to install linux on the KVM vps? Also, it possible to configure the CPUs to host passthrough instead of QEMU (for AES-IN instructions) ?

    does the 5GB OpenVZ Linux VPS support cpu intensive tasks?

    January 16, 2017 @ 5:50 pm | Reply
    • What sort of tasks are you looking to run?

      January 16, 2017 @ 5:58 pm | Reply
      • Gudeos:

        tasks that pull 100% cpu most of the time

        January 16, 2017 @ 6:05 pm | Reply
        • I would advise against it and would recommend a smart server @ https://www.chicagovps.net/services/dedicated-servers

          These will allocate you dedicated resources like CPU etc.

          January 16, 2017 @ 6:08 pm | Reply
          • Gudeos:

            why would you advise against it? will using 100% cpu get my service terminated? don’t see anything regarding it on the AUP

            January 16, 2017 @ 6:14 pm
          • Just being courteous in case you do get suspended due to any issues, don’t want to steer you in the wrong direction bud :P

            AUP indeed does reference a “VPS Hosting – CPU Policy”.

            We wish you luck!

            January 16, 2017 @ 6:18 pm
          • Gudeos:

            indeed it does, sorry. dedicated servers have too many resources and too few cpu cores. thanks anyways…

            January 16, 2017 @ 6:26 pm
          • No worries at all, if feel free to PM me on LET here if you require my personal assistance!

  11. Jason:

    When I try to order an OpenVZ box, it defaults to Chicago and Buffalo isnt an option in the dropdown. Are those servers available in Buffalo? 1000MB test file is twice as fast from Buffalo as Chicago for me across my tests. Thanks in advance.

  12. when will ChicagoVPS support IPv6?
    come on guys, it’s been 20 years since IPv6 was first being drafted, there’s no excuses any more.
    take a look at some of the interesting things that IPv6 makes possible: https://indico.uknof.org.uk/event/38/other-view?view=standard

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
