    Linode.com turned 17yrs and they have new product update news and a peak into their future development roadmap Linode at 17: A bunch of updates | Linode Blog including bare metal dedicated servers, private VLANs, managed databases and more dedicated cpu instance VPS plans (I suspect they'd be AMD EPYC based) :)

    Almost in synch with this I've been getting obscene steal. My 8vCpu has been fine for years chugging away.

    After a couple of live migrations and today enduring 70+% steal, I'm moving to a dedicated plan.

    The bare metal option will be nice. I often thought about scaleway or vultr, just no uk presence. although france/amsterdam isn't far for light to travel.

    that is alot of cpu steal ! make sure you're reading the numbers correctly.

    You can use cminfo sar-cpu command to get a breakdown of 123.09beta01 server's cpu stats for past 7 days

    cminfo sar-cpu

    So many cool tools you have built into this... That's a nicer view. I was sending them screenshots from nixstats which they liked very much.

    Yeah I mainly build Centmin Mod for my personal usage so handy tools are a must :D

    Looks like for Jun 25, 2020 your max cpu steal = 69.73% with 95% percentile at 39.36% cpu steal and similarly high for previous June 24, 2020 at max cpu steal = 64.84% and 95% percentile at 35.73% cpu steal. So yes when that happens, request Linode to move you to another less congested/crowded VPS host node or as you have planned move to dedicated cpu Linode plans so you are not sharing resources with other basic Linode plan users.
