VPS vs. Dedicated - New Benchmark Results


Following the discussion in previous UnixBench thread, I tweaked the benchmark to bring it closer to today's typical webhosting condition. Disk READ is weighted more in the final score, and concurrency is included in all tests. I also changed the base index to a P233MMX machine because I don't have the READ result from the original base machine.

Download: UnixBench v4.1.0 - WHT Variant

# gunzip -dvc unixbench-4.1.0-wht.tar.gz | tar xvf -
# cd unixbench-4.1.0-wht
# make
# ./Run

Please download and run it on your dedicated or VPS. Then post your result here for discussion. Thanks!
