    Hey @Bryan!

    If I'm not mistaken, this was a issue at first when my container was initially capped at 10mbps. It appears that my container is stuck at being able to push only 10mbps in or out of the container. I ran a speedtest and also tried to download a Cachefly test file and they both show the same speed.

    Speedtest:

    Is this normal or has it automatically changed my speed limit to 10mbps again?

    Edit: Opened screen and ran a benchmark in the background, here's what I got:

    Disk speed looks okay, but the funny thing is that I can push more data over IPv6 than IPv4 so I assume it's some glitch in the settings that I'm being capped to 10mbps over IPv4. I was able to download at ~300mbps over IPv6:

    root@server7:~# wget http://repos.lax-noc.com/1gb.bin

    It's probably a quick fix by changing a setting so it doesn't restrict my network speed so if you don't mind, please fix it for me Bryan!!!

    Can you try now? It was showing the speed as not being capped in one box, but in the other it was showing it as being capped again.

    Not really sure how that happened.

    Download is resolved, upload is still stuck at 10mbps:

    I'll keep seeing what I can come up with. There are no settings I can see that would be causing this. Do you have a test file I can try pulling from another server?

    As in test file, did you want me to place a test file on the server for you to download from?

    If you could, yes. Hopefully somewhat large since I'll be pulling it from other servers to test the speed. If you need some files, you can download them here: http://wswdsupport.com/testdownloadfiles/

    I've sent you the links via PM, it's basically just the server's IP, sitting right at the front after I disabled that redirect to my domain. Thanks for your help so far!

    It should be fixed. There are some other weird things taking place here that I'm going to take up to the datacenter. The ping to Dallas is 30ms, but over 110ms to Los Angeles. So one of our servers in Los Angeles is barely able to pull the test file off your VPS, but Dallas was pulling it at around 500 Mbps.

    I'll bring it up to the datacenter and see what they can come up with. It definitely appears to be a routing issue somewhere along the route.

    Actually, it appears to have fixed itself now. Down to 8ms to LA.

    I would honestly like it to be faster than this, so I'm going to converse with the datacenter anyway, but here are some results:

    Seems to be all fine again, which I'm very happy with, I was able to get a few hundred mbps out of it too. Thanks again for all your help!!! :)

    I just had one final question, is the processor speed supposed to be limited? From that benchmark, I saw the processor speed was set at ~25% of the core. Is this normal?

    Edit: It might not be your datacenter, probably just how much the VPS can get out of it at once. I tested this from Colocrossing in LA and it was actually a bit lower than your LA test:

    You're welcome! I'd still like to get that speed up. 250 Mbps to Los Angeles is not that good, TBH. At 8ms, it should be able to pull darn near 1 Gbps.

    Where are you seeing that? No, you should be able to burst to 2 full cores. If it's idle, it usually will not show the full power of the cores, but if you're seeing that it's set somewhere to 25%, no, that is incorrect and needs to be changed.

    Oh never mind that then, might be incorrect then, as long as the VPS has enough to work with, I'll be fine. Thanks for your help!

    If it helps at all, here's some tests from elsewhere. It's probably not the LA datacenter your testing from, might be either Apache not being able to serve the file that quickly or the VPS's network/datacenter. I'm guessing the datacenter? Since Apache isn't using up all the resources just to serve a file...

    It could just be routing around the world, sometimes it's better, sometimes it's a bit slower. Probably dependent on the current network load because I got better speeds as I tested more far away from the VPS.

    Helpful for sure! Thank you. The RBX doesn't look bad at all. Slightly over 115 Mbps across the ocean, which isn't terrible. New York definitely seems slow, as does Canada.
