Alicloud ECS Instance Performance Test

Firstly, let see the processor used for the this Linux instance hosted in Alibaba Cloud Singapore Zone B datacenter.

This is the instance I created in the first post. It is a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2682 v4 @ 2.50GHz processor

Disk Write/Read Speed Test
Now, using a dd command to test the write speed of a disk.
I ran the test 3 times and this is the result. The result is between 110MB/s and 117MB/s.

The file tempfile created by the previous command was cached in a buffer, so we have to clear cache to get the actual speed.

Next is Speed Test
There is a simple speedtest script that will help me check the upload and download speeds.

wget -O speedtest-cli

Here are some speedtest results from the various randomly picked location.
