Understanding VPS limits and improving them

Hi everybody,

This is my second post here, but i've lurked for a long time

I'm quite new at the VPS world, I just got 1 for testing purpose. It is a Virtuozzo based with 128MB RAM (ok, maybe Xen is better, but I couldn't find a so cheap Xen as the Virtuozzo i got and this is all just for testing purposes).

I would like to know by people who use VPS since a long time, which kind of load a VPS can sustain keeping good response time, since I will never succed to produce a load big enough to test it myself. And which kind of optimization tecniques do you advice me to follow to get the most of it? I was thinking about installing Lighttpd and some MySQL finetuning, but what else?

Critical load will depends on resource and sites you put there but I don't like a load over 5 (not only for vps even for dedicated)

Optimization depends on what limitation you hit, have a look at QoS and see what are the alerts there (if any)

It's possible to start to give ideas but they'll be too much general.

Let me fix it for you
