Filed under: CentOS,Debian,linux — Tags: , , , , — admin @ 7:46 am
dd bs=1M count=512 if=/dev/zero of=test conv=fdatasync

The result is something like this :
512+0 records in
512+0 records out
536870912 bytes (537 MB) copied, 1.43334 s, 375 MB/s

  • This is true. However, will my results be impacted by the persons sharing my main node if Im on a Linux vps ?

    Yes, Your result will be definitely affected if you are on a shared environment.
