What is VPS

CPU list of VPS (Judge whether it is good or not)

 

CPU Information of VPS


What does CPU’s information mean?

If you can know CPU’s information, you can know
1) Amount of CPU’s core
2) CPU clock speed

Amount of CPU means how many works your server’s CPU can do at the same time.

CPU clock speed means how often your server’s CPU can do the work.

But the information about how much work CPU can do in 1 cycle is missing.

So measuring real CPU performance is important to know the capacity of the server.
If CPU performance is higher, you can serve your server’s content with more speed and with less cost.


What we have to mind in the case of CPU of VPS

The virtual server can show fake information of CPU because it is not physical server.
So even if CPU information is available, the information may not be correct.

But in some of the cases, CPU’s information is correct.
We can connect CPU’s information and measured CPU’s performance, so we can judge whether your created instance has good CPU or not by CPU information.

So measuring real CPU performance is important to know the capacity of the server.

Results can chnage but too low CPU clock will lead to low performance. 2.3GHz is most common CPU in Feb/2020.

VPS not displaying real CPU information

Since it does not display real CPU information, it does not make sense to look at CPU information
