    Thought I'd run Centmin Mod through some benchmarks. Nothing serious- just using the Benchmark Plugin on Wordpress as that's what I use. Currently, my website is hosted with Web Synthesis. Their Wordpress offering is also based on NGINX. Here is a result from their VPS with 1GB RAM:

    CPU Speed:31,481 BogoWips
    Database Queries per Second:2,011 Queries/Sec

    That's certainly a good score. To give you something to compare, I was interested in Cloudways that offers Digital Ocean hosting with nginx/varnish. Here is their score for the 1GB VPS

    CPU Speed:32,336 BogoWips
    Database Queries per Second:581 Queries/Sec

    Decent CPU performance but Database queries are much lower than the industry standard which is 1,292 Queries/Sec

    Next, I set up a VPS at Softlayer (my favourite provider). Again a 1GB VPS server, first with cPanel installed:

    CPU Speed:43,062 BogoWips
    Database Queries per Second:1,585 Queries/Sec

    Good score on the CPU- faster than Web Synthesis but a bit slower in Database. Same server as above but this time with Centmin Mod

    CPU Speed:44,513 BogoWips
    Database Queries per Second:3,973 Queries/Sec

    Same CPU score (as expected) as cPanel but look at those Database numbers- fastest in all the tests above and by a long margin!

    Do you see a reasonable difference between MariaDB 5.5 and 10.x? Also any ETA on .08 stable? I ask because I was planning on moving from Web Synthesis to Soft Layer (because of the server location) but I can wait a tad bit if .08 is around the corner and offers noticeable performance increases.

    Will be a while before .08 beta is stable - lots to test especially for CentOS 7 compatibility side :)

    Of course with .07 stable you can also try the MariaDB 5.5 to MariaDB 10 upgrade submenu with a minor tweak outlined at MariaDB - MariaDB 5.5 to 10 upgrade beta testing

    MariaDB 10 is general going to be faster than MariaDB 5.5 for most work loads/query types. But really depends on work load types and my.cnf tuning settings
