Sago Networks: Two Quick Benchmarks

Me and kollek bought two Xeon E3 dedicated servers from Sago Networks almost three days ago, and here’s two quick benchmarks which I ran on them. The servers are only loaded with Proxmox VE at the moment — so they’re more or less running stock — nothing else is running on them. All fresh and

VPSDepot Benchmark

Right, a quick and “dirty” benchmark report for VPSDepot — a company of whom I have only been a customer with since 02/06/2012. This is not a review, it is just a quick benchmark, that’s all. I have two servers with VPSDepot at almost 70 bucks a month per server, but I decided to cancel

Moving k0nsl.net to Gondor

There only is one rule, the unwritten one; no paedophilia-related discussions, channels or content of any kind. So in any case, feel free to become a frequent user of

Varnish not playing nice

As most of my readers know I’ve been caught up with improving the server the last couple of weeks and I’ve had great success with much of it. Most recantly I’ve played with Varnish — which no doubt worked very well — but up to now things took another turn and I seemed to get

Speed Optimizations – Done!

I’ve managed to optimize the server (and the underlying code in the blog) to be a lot snappier now, although WordPress still has that characteristic “sluggish” feel to it, regrettably. But obviously a lot of things has been done considering GTmetrix gave it an average rating of about 68 in Page Speed Score only some weeks ago.
