    Hi I have a new VPS

    I have move some accounts with no traffic, but memory shows 53.6% used. Is this normal?

    Memory Used 53.6 %
    Swap 0.711 %
    Disk vzfs (/) 14 %
    Regards!

    couple things, VPS hog memory more than anything else and that could be your entire system.......... what suprises me is its not running up the full 99 percent for the heck of it

    I had similar concerns when I tested the water with a few VPS providers in the last few weeks. I thought it was cheaper to try a few of them for a month and burn a bit of money before moving too many clients over to one provider and having a disaster.

    My stats with SERVINT at the moment are :
    Server Load 0.04 (4 cpus)
    Memory Used 44 %
    Swap 0.816 %
    Disk vzfs (/) 23 %


    Other companies I tried had much much higher server load on VPSs doing nothing. From memory they all showed around 50% memory used. SERVINT was by far the best stats from the three companies I have chosen

    Guess the best option is to do a gradual migration of clients and see how it goes.

    I have an old client who had their domain with another co who must have a reseller account on a EV1 server. Just to compare the server load on this account is always over 2.0 (1cpu only) and on sold red but the site is always reponsive and has been for years.

    Good luck..

    LiquidWeb and PowerVPS.

    Have got to say also SERVINT seems the most professional. I have had a few support issues due to my incompetence and they were handled beautifully. From my research throught these forums those three were reported as most reliable. Dont waste time with anyone else.

    There's omly marginal differece between the three on a price basis. Servint also has a forum which appears to be reasonably active.

    Still pretty good, but I'd go with Servint. They also seem to be the most favoured in this forum if you do some digging.

    My stats at PowerVPS currently are (I have taken all accounts off so its doing nothing) :
    Server Load 0.35 (4 cpus)
    Memory Used 56.8 %
    Swap 0.709 %
    Disk vzfs (/) 11 %

    All three companies had similar times from order to getting the VPS setup so not much difference there. LiquidWeb actually called me up to verify the order which I thought was a 'nice' touch.

    Good luck !!!

    is it just me, or is the PowerVPS load a bit high? have you done that check at more 'idle times', like first thing in the morning? Just wondering, as they're high on my list (which is as others have said: PowerVPS, ServInt, Liquid). The fact that Power does some pre-securing of the VPS is a real bonus (Liquid does as well), and yet their costs are lower.

    Since from what I understand, ServInt has upper-caps on resources to avoid systems getting locked up, I guess I'm not necessarily surprised that Power might show higher avg load, but...

    David,

    The PowerVPS box is doing nothing but is most times hovering around this load. I have checked all three many many times at random times during the day. Servint is consistantly lower than them and Liquidweb.

    I guess one thing is that all the three I tried havent had any 'real' load on them. The Servint box has currently about 15 domains but all static and most are really only used for email.

    The server load when idle may or may not be a usefull indicator.

    This means that your main partition is 81% full.
