Test and Benchmark Your New Server

You just got a new VPS or Dedicated Server and you are wanting to test out its performance. You may not know all the commands needed for this information or maybe you don’t want to type them all out. Here are a few easy alternatives.

Server Info Bash Script

This will provide information about the server such as CPU, Storage Space, Ram, Etc. It will perform multiple network speed tests to other servers around the world. It will also test your Disk I/O speed. Run the following two commands in terminal.

wget comptutor.me/files/info.sh
sh info.sh (option)

You may run the test without any options which will display System information, IPv4 only speedtest and disk speed & IOPing benchmark.
-sys
Displays system information such as CPU, amount CPU cores, RAM and more.
-io
Runs a disk speed test and a IOPing benchmark and displays the results.
-iops
Runs a extended IOPing test for latency, reading and et cetera.
-6
Normal benchmark but with a IPv6 only speedtest (run when you have IPv6).
-46
Normal benchmark with IPv4 and IPv6 speedtest.
-64
Same as above.
-b
Normal benchmark with IPv4 only speedtest, I/O test and Geekbench system benchmark.
-b6
Normal benchmark with IPv6 only speedtest, I/O test and Geekbench system benchmark.
-b46
Normal benchmark with IPv4 and IPv6 speedtest, I/O test and Geekbench system benchmark.
-b64
Same as above.
-h

UnixBench 5.1.3

UnixBench provides a basic indicator of the performance of a Unix-like system; hence, multiple tests are used to test various aspects of the system’s performance. This test is very good at testing the overall performance of your server hardware, especially the processing power. Run the following five commands in terminal.

wget comptutor.me/files/UnixBench5.1.3.tgz
tar -zxvf UnixBench5.1.3.tgz
cd UnixBench
make
./Run
