Hello Everyone,
I have seen several members asking for a way to check the performances of their VPS, so I have create a small script to benchmark your vps with a single command.
You can launch it by running the following command as root via ssh.

Code:
bash <(wget -O - [COLOR=#990073]https:[/COLOR]/[COLOR=#009926]/git.virtubox.net/virtubox[/COLOR][COLOR=#009926]/vps-benchmark/raw[/COLOR][COLOR=#009926]/master/vpsbench[/COLOR].sh)
The output will be :

Code:
System Info
-----------
Processor       : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1620 v2 @ 3.70GHz
CPU Cores       : 4

I will update it in the next few days to measure also CPU performances.

The script is based on bench-sh-2

For just drive speed check you can use following command.

# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
