    Question Poor disk IO on ThrustVPS

    I'm trying out a couple of VPSes as I want to go from a cPanel/WHM account with multiple sub-accounts (friends mostly) to something with more control.

    Signed up with a couple of providers, to try them out before switching anything.
    ThrustVPS were instantly setup (minus a directadmin license) which puts them ahead of anyone else at the moment but I'm seeing very slow disk access speeds. yum update took forever.

    [[email protected] ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=80 oflag=dsync
    80+0 records in
    80+0 records out
    5242880 bytes (5.2 MB) copied, 50.6944 seconds, 103 kB/s
    Does this indicate a problem with the host, or is this normal for a VPS?

    I was asking whether this is normal for a VPS because of the shared nature of the hardware?

    My only other experience with linux is my media centre, but I get a couple of hundred mb/s on that.

    I'll open a support ticket if it's not normal...

    This is not a normal speed. Most people see around 50MB/s on average. I would submit a ticket for anything lower than 30MB/s for a sustained period of time.
