Question

Underwhelming Performance

Link to my serverscope.io benchmark result: https://serverscope.io/trials/N0E1

Is it normal for disk write, disk read, bandwidth, and speed test to be that low?

I’m in the process of installing Cloudron ( https://cloudron.io/documentation/ ) and the process takes approximately 15m on my other server ( not DO ). It’s been 1h 30m so far ( on DO ) and ongoing!

I am a sad panda. :(

No. I just ran the tests myself and you should be seeing much higher results. What region is your Droplet located in?
