    Are there CPU throttling on CPU-optimized droplets?

    I do understand CPU throttling exists on non-dedicated CPU droplets, since each of those droplets share physical hardware with other droplets, and constant 100% CPU use would degrade the service quality for other user...
    Accepted Answer: With CPU optimized cores each core is assigned to a droplet and is 100% allocated to that droplet so you can use 100% of the cores that are associated with it. There is no throttling.

    How do I disable ipv6 on Ubuntu 20.04

    I have followed every guide to disable ipv6 and yet after EVERY reboot I am still seeing it enabled. How do I disable it? net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6 = 0
    Accepted Answer: Looks like /etc/default/grub.d/50-cloudimg-settings.cfg overrides the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="console=tty1 console=ttyS0 ipv6.disable=1" line. So set it in that file and then run update-grub.
