**Note the CPU details Frequency is the frequency observed at the start of the trial.

It may vary as the trial progresses.

Grades are calculated by combining results from web, sysbench, endurance and network transfers tests.

Grade A is best, grade F is. Follow the letter links to find the test results backing the grade.

During the Web Run tests, a web application is loaded with locally generated HTTP requests at various rates. We measure latencies and rate of errors at each load level.

Review and compare Contabo - VDS S web runs with other cloud providers.

We ran Sysbench tests on this VPS, including CPU tests, random and sequential, read and write IO tests and memory tests.

Review and compare all Sysbench numbers for the Contabo - VDS S VPS plan.

We have performed large file transfers from the Contabo - VDS S VPS, both downloads and uploads and we measured the speed of the transfers.

The transfers involve multiple files, 10 threads and last for at least 10 seconds at maximum speed. The transfers are repeated 4 times from different nearby servers and only the fastest transfer is considered in grades and comparisons.

Can your VPS handle 24 hours of sustained CPU load without flinching? How much can it handle? Does the provider throttle your CPU after a while?
