    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?

    Sure,

    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.

    For example, if using XEN then your resources are dedicated to you and cannot be oversold by the host, where as say OpenVZ allows the host to oversell resources. This leads to lower costs but can lead to problems if the host is not on top of it.
