  1. QuickWeb is always a great host. I have, at the moment, three VPS with them. Great service, superb pricing!

    I was hoping to see an exclusive offer to LEB readers.

  6. @Nizar Here is my initial report about the disk i/o speed:


    dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k
    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out
    1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 143.988 s, 7.5 MB/s

    It seem to be pretty slow if compared to my other VPS.

    I guess with only 80MB you won’t be doing anything too crazy on it, but it looks like they’re cramming the users onto it, judging by the IO speed. Still, there’s plenty of uses for a box like that, and it’s a decent price.

  8. @Gary I’ve submitted ticket to them. They are suspecting some users abusing the server and will check for this. I wish them can fix this, or I’m going to cancel it as it’s too slow.

    Yeah, I guess it could be that. I’m not sure how you could abuse a server with 80MB and 3GB space, but maybe I’m just not imaginative enough. :D

    When there’s bad IO the first thing I’d suspect is another user running rtorrent or something, but you wouldn’t get far with such low specs.

  10. Just FYI, I’m using their 128MB package with 5GB diskspace and 120GB bandwidth.
    Let’s see how can they fix it. :)

  11. A quick update from me, QuickWeb has recreated my VPS on another node, everything working fine now. :D

    As I thought. I was pretty sure that this will be “fix” – moving those which complain from heavily oversold server to another node. Standard. Next step would be argumenting that I am wrong (while we all know that I am not :-)

    @Sei Kan – Out of interest, what node were you previously on? I had the same issue and also got moved…

  14. You’ll think that Xen with credit based IO scheduler would be less prone to abuse than OpenVZ. Or it could be right after Nizar’s request for Unixbench everyone fires up to check the benchmark :)

  15. @Jamie I forget my previous node, but I’m currently in Xen4.

    That’s great. It is a lot faster than my current VPS with you.
    Is is a XEN based or OpenVZ?

  22. we are introducing OpenVZ SSD VPS at San Jose because as of the moment all of them are XEN, yeah no SATA can match the speed of SSD (Intel X25-Ms) though they are bit more expensive :)
