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!
