VPS connectivity and performance benchmark

by Ruchira on April 20, 2013



Easiest and best way to find the performance of your dedicated servers or VPS’s is to benchmark them. I have covered how to do a Geekbench test on your linux server here . But that doesn’t test for variables like bandwidth. I know that testing connectivity speeds is easy as running “wget”s against some test files. But I have found a great little script which does this very easily

This will test your VPS or Dedicated server for

  • Multiple download tests from various countries
  • System Uptime
  • Disk IO


Just run this command on terminal to run the script and it will display the results as it happens


wget freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash
