Disk Performance

OVH SSD KVM vdisk (/dev/vda) performance varies a lot depending on hypervisor’s load.

some day early 2017,

Timing cached reads:   18348 MB in  2.00 seconds = 9184.72 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 2338 MB in  3.01 seconds = 777.99 MB/sec

some other day May 2017,

Timing cached reads:   19078 MB in  2.00 seconds = 9550.77 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads:  94 MB in  3.02 seconds =  31.09 MB/sec

Timing cached reads:   19172 MB in  2.00 seconds = 9598.49 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 194 MB in  3.08 seconds =  63.00 MB/sec

Timing cached reads:   18410 MB in  2.00 seconds = 9216.01 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 274 MB in  3.01 seconds =  91.06 MB/sec

Timing cached reads:   18512 MB in  2.00 seconds = 9267.82 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 346 MB in  3.13 seconds = 110.59 MB/sec

Online physical disk (/dev/sda) has stable performance every day May 2017,

Timing cached reads:   3488 MB in  2.00 seconds = 1744.73 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 406 MB in  3.00 seconds = 135.24 MB/sec

Timing cached reads:   3278 MB in  2.00 seconds = 1639.20 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 404 MB in  3.01 seconds = 134.24 MB/sec

Timing cached reads:   3338 MB in  2.00 seconds = 1668.96 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 404 MB in  3.01 seconds = 134.28 MB/sec

Pros & Cons

hosting provider OVH Online
remote console yes but sucks (char issues if non us-english keyboard) not on entry-level, XC2015 has one
ssh keys at install time yes, that rocks nope
install duration fast install process takes ages (bare-metal)
startup/reboot duration fast *1 reboot is slower (bare-metal)
IPv6 available as of 2017 partial as of 2017

*1 on centos vps at least, the VM does not reboot, you need to go to the console and restart your vps there…
