Thank you all!


Sure. Here’s a Geekbench from my NVMe VPS in Stockholm:


@Mason did you get the E3 from Virmach? Would you run, please?


Sure did. Here you go -

I got the 2x1TB HDD variant. I’m awaiting IPMI details so I can install Proxmox & RAID0 (YOLO mofos) the drives :slight_smile:


Installed Proxmox w/ RAID0 ZFS. I always laugh at disk speed tests when ZFS is enabled

Or I have the fastest spinning rust on the planet :smiley:


I experienced the same with an old E3. Any idea why it happens?


Because it’s not actually writing to disk. ZFS does a bunch of caching with RAM, so it’s not really a true test of your HDD speeds.


Oh boy


Niceee! Is that the free 3-month VPS?


What a beast! :slight_smile:


Yes, but it has the recurring price at $0. Not sure if it’s a mistake or my Christmas present :rofl:


Virmach commented that even if WHMCS seems to show $0 recurring, you will still be billed for it if you don’t cancel it soon enough: ( tldr: WHMCS being WHMCS


I believe it’s 3 months for free, you may pm me your registered email and I’ll check this for you @imok.


Thanks but I already asked them, I’m not in a hurry right now. If I don’t get a reply I will PM you.


@Mason I got my IPMI details but it looks like I’m unable to mount an iso (no privileges). Did you have a similar issue?


I mean, I’m “them”… :-).

As for the IPMI issue, can also sort it for you.


I know, I just didn’t want to bother more people from Virmach if I’ve already asked to someone and is not urgent :grin: You guys should have a lot of tickets pending.

About the IPMI, I’m quite new to that stuff so I was not sure if I was in the correct menu item.

But if you insist… I will reply the ticket now.



We don’t have that many tickets pending - and you should be able to mount your ISO just fine.
In regards to mounting it, you probably lack the permissions. Simply toss me the ticket ID to my PM so I can have that escalated and get it sorted for you.


Mount it via the Virtual Storage option in the Java app, not on the IPMI Web interface
