    I'm about to jump from OVH SGP due to network issue.
    Any feedbacks from old/current users?

    Thanks!

    Search WHT and lowendtalk forums. From memory, Leaseweb have high bandwidth overage charges and customers are reporting sometimes their bandwidth overages reported by Leaseweb don't match what their own server's bandwidth usage or the control panel set bandwidth threshold preset they set doesn't work and Leaseweb continue to serve visitors pass the preset bandwidth threshold. So they get bills for bandwidth overage in the $10,000s of dollars. Or if you get DDOS attacked, Leaseweb does pass the bandwidth cost over to customer too.

    I haven't used them myself, but I definitely wouldn't be using them from what I read.

    examples
    Problem is even if you do set bandwidth limits, customers have reported the limits don't work, so you end up with a very high bandwidth overage amount/cost if you have alot of traffic !

    Yeah knowing your bandwidth usage, Leaseweb would be a costly affair for you !!!

    I pull the trigger and purchased Hongkong Dedicated Server.
    30-40 ms ping from my local ISP.

    I'm just afraid of this: Viewing Null Route history - Knowledge Base
    They will null route if attack exceed my current plan :|

    I think that isn't applicable anymore, as they will null route the server now if the attack exceed the limit (5gbps for standard protection).

    As far as I understood if the attack is below 5gbps, they will scrub it and if exceed 5gbps they will null route the IP which is too bad also :(

    Maybe I'll just hang on to my old OVH server until I can feel it slow down before moving out.
    Right now 6pm here:

    Server Load will increase up to 45% for the next 4 hours.

    guess you need to figure out where the load is coming from. cminfo commands might help for
    Code (Text):
    cminfo top
    cminfo sar-cpu
    cminfo sar-mem
    cminfo phpstats
    cminfo phpmem
    

    but up to you to interpret the output

    It's more on MYSQL then PHP-FPM.
    I can surely lower down the load if I disable Push Notifications, but it's a must have for me.
