VDS Speed Limit?

Post by stickz » Sat Aug 22, 2015 10:45 pm

Is the upload speed on VDS's limited in any way shape or forum, bellow the port speed? I had extra bandwidth to blow, so I spun up a test and couldn't achieve above 300mbps regardless how many clients I tried to upload to concurrently. The files were thrown in a large memory cache with plenty of CPU to spare.

Odd, I couldn't achieve faster than 300mbps in NYC with 500 seeder slots on transmission. 600mb ram cache and 50% CPU on 1/2 cores.

Torrents are a very poor way to test DL/UL speeds.

I was achieving the same results with 150 seeder slots as 500, so it was making me wonder why.

There was 5000+ leechers with 650 on my transmission, and an active connection to almost 500 clients.

They probably only downloaded part of the torrent, keeping them listed as leechers when they are actually partial seeders.
