Any one know what CPU's Inception Hosting run on?

Any one know what CPU's @InceptionHosting run on as the model is hidden by "QEMU Virtual CPU"? Do we think there will ever be AMD Ryzen / Epyc chips with @InceptionHosting

    Will depend on location and package, I'd imagine. Easiest way would be to put in a ticket to enable cpu passthrough (assuming they allow that) and then check.

    Check Ant's offer threads.

  • My DE and NL VPSes both say: "Intel(R) Xeon(R) E-2278G CPU @ 3.40GHz"

    Oh, I thought that were running older CPU's but happy days if they are running some of newer Intel CPU's =)

    In the case of IH, I've heard that there's a trick such that if you first install an OS from a template (as opposed to from an ISO), then the CPU will be passed through. (Apparently, this is due to a bug in SolusVM.) Afterwards, you can install an OS from an ISO and you will still have the CPU passed through.

    (I'm not 100% certain about this trick, but perhaps others can confirm.)

    "A single swap file or partition may be up to 128 MB in size. [...] [I]f you need 256 MB of swap, you can create two 128-MB swap partitions." (M. Welsh & L. Kaufman, Running Linux, 2e, 1996, p. 49)

    Yes I think that still works.

    # grep 'model name' /proc/cpuinfo
    model name      : Intel(R) Xeon(R) E-2276G CPU @ 3.80GHz
    model name      : Intel(R) Xeon(R) E-2276G CPU @ 3.80GHz
    

    That's what I have.

  • I believe there are some older E3s in London too. Not sure what the CPUs were though when they were using ioflood in pheonix.

    I believe they were E3-1270v6 i had a VM in the London location a number of years back.

    Interesting, I reinstalled from AlmaLinux 8 to Debian 11 and I get the proper name of the CPU now and the extra VPS I ordered today has the same CPU:

    OP welcome to LES and next time please search around before asking. Since you tagged Inception Hosting a couple of times, an extra step- looking up their profile, and checking their recent discussions- could have avoided this thread altogether.

    There are quite a bit of YABS for IH VPS’es in the YABS thread and bench.monster one. Also Ant mentions the cpu configs in the offers IIrC..

    Of course search in vanilla is wonderful so it will take a while to look up. Else do a ctrl+f on a few pages (recent ones recommended, for upgrade if any and possible post-Clouvider acquisition there might have been some changes).

    I looked up my blog and yabs showed for eg (London, BF 2020 offer)

    Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2640 v4 @ 2.40GHz

    Turns out it is not so difficult to start with the last page (p55 at time of posting) and moving backwards towards p54, p53 etc..
    for e.g.

    of course watch out for signature of @chocolateshirt :-)
