03:27<mohamedmansour>Hello! I need some help understanding how to get a VM with high IOPS? I have been with Linode for 12-14 years, which I use for personal load, but now I want to transfer my Azure stuff over here. I am hosting a Ethereum Node which requires high IOPS but I don't want to spend that much since it is for open source development.

03:40<d4n13L>mohamedmansour: I found most linodes quite fair in their IOPS/price factor. what is your definition of "high" IOPS?
03:48-!-haimai259 [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
04:03<mohamedmansour>I just did a test on the OS disk and the write IOPS is pretty slow:
04:04<mohamedmansour> read: IOPS=40.9k, BW=160MiB/s (168MB/s)(6141MiB/38438msec) bw ( KiB/s): min=83528, max=239616, per=100.00%, avg=163810.66, stdev=27576.03, samples=76 iops : min=20882, max=59904, avg=40952.71, stdev=6894.03, samples=76 write: IOPS=13.7k, BW=53.4MiB/s (55.9MB/s)(2051MiB/38438msec); 0 zone resets
04:04<mohamedmansour>Meanwhile on the volumes, the IOPS is currently just doing 400 IOPS
04:10<mohamedmansour>I created a forum post for this
04:11<linbot>New news from community: Low IOPS on Volumes <>
04:14<d4n13L>what type of linode are you using?
04:15<d4n13L>it obviously gets better the higher the tier

14:36<Andy_>do you have any examples of people using Linode for personal portfolios?
14:36<@_brian>greetings Andy_ - can you be more specific?
14:38<Andy_>Is Linode used at all for portfolios showcasing applications or code for showing to recruiters
14:38<Andy_>just want to see what others have done with the platform
14:40<@_brian>the answer to that is yes, but honestly off the top of my head i can't think of a customer's page to show you. hang tight i think i might be able to find a good one though
14:41<MTecknology>My site was on a linode vps for a long time (and where it started life), does that count? (site includes my resume)
14:43<Andy_>sure, did it go beyond just hosting ur resume. Like could u host an applicaiton on the shared hosting and work with the parameters of 25G storage and 1G memory?
14:44<@pwoods>That's certainly a possibility, since a Linode is basically a virtual server. You're given root access to go in and make it do what you want.
14:45<Andy_>that's good
14:46<linbot>New news from community: Can't press rebuild Linode button <>
14:46<Andy_>For me personally, i like the pricing on the purpose of hosting resume but also if I could be able to get some functionality in there that shows ability to connect to an API and tie that in to some functionality and workflow. I know like Android SDK might consume a good amount of that space getting that to work
14:46<Andy_>on say an android virtual device
14:48<@pwoods>Right, so just like on your local machine, you're going to want to make sure you have the resources you need to run what you're running. Whether that be storage, RAM, etc.
15:03<@_brian>for transparency's sake: i see you mentioned a 1GB server. that page is hosted on a 2GB plan. i don't know if it's using all of its resources, though
15:09<Andy_>awesome thanks a lot for the link Brian
15:10<@_brian>you're welcome :)
