Can these Dreanhost numbers be correct? (2 posts)

    I ran Benchmark scans on sites on two separate Dreamhost accounts and they consistently returned results seemingly too pitiful to be real. The averages being:
    CPU Speed: 8000 BogoWips
    Network Transfer Speed: 5.07 BPS
    Database Queries per Second: 300

    Can these numbers be real?

    They can, though they're not normal (FWIW, 20,000 BogoWips is more normal, and in fact my site gets 21k).

    Our network transfer speed really is close to 5 BPS :) On a high traffic day it can creep up, but that one's real. As for DB queries, it depends on your SQL server, but around 700 isn't abnormal at all.
