I have a CloudLinux server. It is running as a virtual machine on VMWare ESXi 5.5. The virtual machine has 8 logical processors. The physical CPU is a Xeon 5570 Quad Core. I have the LVE Packages set to 25% for speed to limit the CPU usage on accounts. Running kernel: 2.6.32-531.17.1.lve1.2.60.el6.x86_64
When I benchmark the server fr om an external server, the server load goes up over 50.00. Is this normal behaviour?
I would have expected the LVE Speed limits to lim it the server load keeping it within a normal range. (The server when running without the benchmark runs at approx 1.20 load normally)
The benchmark command I am running on the other server is: ./ab -n 3000 -c 100 -v5 http://www.domainoncloudlinuxserver.com/
