AWS t2.medium vs. Linode 4GB


(Aivis Silins) #1

Hello,

Today I did performance tests (some kind of) between Linode 4GB and AWS
t2.medium - just to see which one is faster in this situation.
Test results are quite similar between these two - which is a bit
interesting (or probably not - let me know what do you think), because AWS
t2.medium are 2 vCPU, but Linode 4GB are 4vCPU and SSD.

Any additional information you can find in spreadsheet.

Test methodology - each request/query was executed in sync order 100 times
(so 1 requests isn't cached - all others I assume is)
Data was indexed in AWS machine and after that synced (with rsync) to
Linode (so data set is completely same and both instances Elasticsearch
config is completely same).

  • Java version same (Open-jdk 7)
  • Linux dist. same (Ubuntu 14.04 64bit)
  • 1 index/1 shard
  • Custom tokenization process (which generates a lot of tokens when
    indexing happens - that's why there is 8.4GB in total from 3.2GB of RAW
    data)

As measurement I take "took" property from Elasticsearch response.

This wasn't stress test or something like that - each query was executed
100 times in sync order - just to if there is difference.
Cluster (single node) - wasn't on stress or something like this - just
these queries...

Spreadsheet

So, the question is - Why AWS results are almost same as Linode? I would
expect that Linode is faster than AWS t2.medium.

Thank you!

Can you mention the clock Speed as I know T2's is upto 3.3 GHz
