    On my KVM based VM I have @ Hostslim for 1,5 years I have made the following YABS bench result for you guys:

    That VMs specs are basically identical to the OVZ VPS #2, but with half the amount of RAM/SWAP and on KVM instead of OVZ.

      Hi, can you please open a ticket @groentjuh as I want to look into this. The disk space IO on your VM seems way too low compared the available IO speed currently. Thank you.
