any way to know the real capacity of a vps offer
A company offers vps and promises this and that but how am I supposed to know and if I get a one moth trial any way I can test the vps to make sure I want to stay with them for a long time?
For HD storage you can use "df -h"
For Memory you can use "free -m"
For CPU you can use "cat /proc/cpuinfo"
If it is a Virtuozzo based VPS you can also check your bean counters to see if you are really getting your dedicated/burst memory - use " cat /proc/user_beancounters"
If you want to test the performance run the UnixBench located in the dedicated forum here: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=308055
These are all very good methods for checking your VPS. Another option to think about is the type of virtual technology your host is using.
