Re: How to evaluate server speed?
Well its a P4 (single core) @ 3ghz with 4gb of ram.
The question is how many clients is it hosting, and since you have your own ip, there’s no real way to determine that.
It’s taking almost a full second for 9 queries. Something is very, very, very wrong. You might want to enquire. If you do have access to /etc/my.cnf, you can turn on the mysql query cache and that should cause a radical improvement.
Last but not least if they can’t fix it, you can do better for your almost $150 a year.
