What should I check when order a vps
Ping, memory, server specifications
I have to account one with PIII and 88 ms ping and 1 MB guarantee
and one with Opteron 248 with 172 ms ping and 256 MB guarantee
Load is the same and memory
What should i choose?
How can check memory they promise (256 MB guarantee)?
If you can get a trial of both, get a benchmarking program and test both. I'd say RAM is the most important thing to look for, but if that P3 is too slow you might not get the same performance than with the Opteron.
Running a quick unix bench is a great way to gauge differences between your two options. But I would also have to say that the ping time of the Opteron concerns me... And I only have good things to say about PIII!
