    Acceptable CPU overcommit ratio?

    Looking at the discussions and VPS offerings it seems almost all providers overcommit CPUs. What is an acceptable CPU overcommit ratio?

    Ok, the poll seems rather loaded but I'll bite. I dont care how many VPSs a providers has per core, provided I get my fair share - in proportion to what I'm paying. The proposition makes no sense to me - VPSs can be provisioned with a huge disparity in memory allocation, yet you think they should all be constrained to a fixed number of clients per core?

    In my limited experience CPU share hasn't been an issue anyway. Disk I/O has, and this is always shared, not necessarily fairly.

    I promise the poll is not loaded. I am truly interested in the result. I was thinking there would be a demand for VPS with a dedicated CPU, but it seems that is not the case so I need to re-examine our offerings to see what would be more interesting to customers.

    There may or may not be demand for a plan like that, the problem is that the poll (by my understanding anyway) doesn't address that question. With no specification of size, "each VPS" could have 128M memory or 2GB (or even more). I certainly wouldn't expect a dedicated core on a 128M VPS, but on a 2GB it could be good.

    Is there a place on the forum to talk about packages and pricing to determine what to offer?
