How to test performance of VPS, Cloud or dedicated server?

When it comes to choose the right VPS or dedicated server for your solution, you may want to test its performance.

Some time ago, I stood before such choice. To optimize the testing process, I wrote a bash script for Ubuntu distributions based on SysBench.

  • You can also use it to test performance of any PC machine.
  • You will need root access.
  • Script will perform CPU, I/O and MySQL performance test, ten times each, so it should be 30 log files to take medium values and comapre with other machines results
