    i posted my experiences at Benchmarks - SSDNodes - ssdnodes.com upto 91% discount on KVM VPS until May 31, 2018 with latest opinions at end of thread at Benchmarks - SSDNodes - ssdnodes.com upto 91% discount on KVM VPS until May 31, 2018
    FYI, I still have a unreplied ticket from November 26, 2019 ~2 months ago from billing regarding why my referral credits where being credited the right amount. It resolved itself as they corrected the referral credits but never replied to my ticket so I closed it myself.

    Folks at LEB forums also reported memory allocated can't be utilised properly as disk/cache buffers get cleared out at 4GB mark SSDNodes RAM is not fully utilized. But that thread has no actual proof that I see and I don't have ssdnode VPS active anymore so wouldn't know if things have changed. So make up your own mind if it's true.

    Just the slow ticket support would rule out any important site/production usage when you need help etc. Probably good for testing type sites or learning the ropes for Centmin Mod testing. Though you could do that with any hourly billed VPS host like vultr, digitalocean, linode or like highly recommended Upcloud - signees also get US$25 credits to use as well.

    LEB member decided to investigate at SSDNodes Singapore Launch - 32GB for $8.25/m and discussion onwards from that post

    Virtio balloon driver Virtio balloon
    The original user reporting ssdnode taking away it's cache/buffered memory at 4+ GB reported he moved to Singapore ssdnodes and not seeing that behaviour like on Frankfurt ssdnodes VPS SSDNodes Singapore Launch - 32GB for $8.25/m so could be new ssdnode VPS host nodes not getting that virtio_balloon due to less neighbours sharing Singapore VPS host node yet.

    So looks like there's some evidence you may not get to use your full memory allocation when ssdnode VPS host node is crowded with neighhours and virtio_balloon driver is in play which is default for all ssdnode VPSes.

    so you can your memory buffer/cache usage via free command like
    Code (Text):
    free -mltw

    Code (Text):
    free -mltw
                  total        used        free      shared     buffers       cache   available
