BuyVM: Legacy OpenVZ service

This is a quick and dirty benchmark of my legacy OpenVZ service which I have with BuyVM. The company have more or less completely phased out OpenVZ from their product line and this particular service is the last I have — all other services have now been migrated to their far more superior KVM “slices” of which I have been very impressed with.

This particular server is acting as a Tor exit relay. It is located in Luxembourg (Roost).

As for some rudimentary results, below are the data using my tool

I might update this post before the end of 2020, or shortly before I make the move to have this converted into a KVM-based service. But for now, this will do fine.
