    Seeing Server Specifications?
    I don't totally understand what I'm asking, but it was suggested I find out this information.

    I want to know what the specifications are for the server that my site is on now... processor, ram size, hard drive size...without asking the hosting company.

    Is there a way to find this info. out without asking the company that hosts my site?

    Thanks

    Your hosting company may have the specs on their website.

    Some companies even post picture of their servers, buildings, conditions, etc.

    You may also ask what capacity the server is running at.
    50% or 99% etc
    imo, if you don't have a name and direct phone number to contact your host you are at a loss.

    If you're wondering if you can somehow see this information online, the answer is no. You'll have to find out by other means as suggested above...

    If it's a Linux server and you have SSH/telnet access to log in to the console, you may be able to get some of the info yourself with commands like cpuinfo, top, and df.

    But if you're wondering about performance on a shared server, what matters more is how many sites are sharing the resources with you and how much of the CPU and memory they're using. For example, a Celeron server with 100 sites might serve pages faster than a Pentium Dual Core server with 500 sites, and a server with 500 low-traffic sites will be faster than 500 busy sites with server-heavy scripting.

    If you're looking for a host - Use HostGator.

    You will not have any problems there!

    Some of the hosting review sites go so far as to include the average equipment.

    Here's a quick and dirty PHP script that MAY give you some information. It is possible that your host will not allow the script to get what it needs, but with luck it will give you some info. Hope it helps.

    -John.

    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $commands 
    = array (
                       
    "CPU Info" => "cat /proc/cpuinfo",
                       
    "Memory"   => "cat /proc/meminfo",
                       
    "Uptime"   => "uptime",
                       
    "Disks"    => "df",
                       );

    foreach (
    $commands as $label => $command) {
      echo 
    "<h1>$label</h1>\n";
      echo 
    "<pre>";
      
    system ($command);
      echo 
    "</pre>";
    }
    ?>
    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Leann,

    it's nice to know these things but the truth is specs don't mean squat if someone has a bad script taking up resources in a shared environment...you could have a slow box pushing 3 clients perform much better than a new super computer pushing 1000

    it's all relative
