Speed Issues on Hetzner Dedi in Finland

I signed up for a Dual Xeon E5, 480GB SSD, 32GB server for $59 a month. Sucks that it won't support hardware transcoding but I am very interested to see the difference in reliability. I am going to give this server a try for a couple of weeks. I can report back here for any who are interested in finding a North American host.

FYI, my speeds to Hetzner are very good this evening with 175Mbps down.
I know it hasn't even been a week yet (lol), but how is it so far? How many remote streams do you normally do? Just thinking if I want to get the i7 6700k for HW transcoding or not.

I have not fully migrated to the WholeSaleInternet. I installed and configured PG. Speedtests are great but speeds to the tdrive are horrible. Speedtest shows 800Mbps upload but when uploading a file to the tdrive I get around 2Mbps. Usnet download speeds are also less then desired at around 30Mbps. I have tried reinstalling PG and tried a different OS. No matter what I do I get the same results.

I was with wholesaleinternet years ago. I had to run my Usenet and torrents thru VPN as I did get a warning once for my Usenet usage. I’ve been looking into getting a Hetzner machine in Finland but these speed issues worry me a bit, even if they are intermittent.

Be careful what you do on wholesaleinternet as they will shut ya down. Route thru a VPN and save yourself any headaches.

I was thinking of just running plex on wholesaleinternet, and hetzner as the feeder. Even if the speeds were inconsistent - I wouldn't be too concerned.

I never had problems with wholesale. I ran a dedicated so I'm unsure why unless a vps was used.
I am running a dedicated with Dual Xeon processor and 480GB SSD. No matter how I set things up I have a few issues.

As noted my downloads speeds vis sabnzbd are less than expected but not horrible.

When I run the Blitz command here are my results. On hetzner I would normally see around 30M/s upload and you can see here I am getting 3.5M/s. Also there is an error reading the log files. I have been running a stable Hetzner Dedi for months now so I thought maybe I am doing something wrong since I had not installed from scratch in a long time. I went and got me a Hetzner VPS for testing. Set that up the exact same way and no issues what so ever. I then had WSI reload my OS. Did the install again and same exact issues. So something is up with WSI.

It seems I fixed my network issue on the hetzner server. I am not sure if all of them or only one fixed it or if it is fixed permanently. I have 2 nights without issues now. Had issues every night for 2 weeks before.

Thats what i did:

* Perform speed test from Hetzner support (they didn't find issues)
* Moved BGBlitz from Ubuntu to Debian
* Moved BGBlitz from v8.5.6 to v8.6.5
* Routing all traffic over cloudflare network

Probably that 4th one fixed it

I think most of us having the issue were already using cloudflare. I know I was. The only thing @mobo did that would be different from my setup is switching to Debian. A while back I remember someone saying that the Hetzner Ubuntu image had some issues.

Either way I have not had any issues for the last two days myself and nothing changed on my end. So whatever the issue was I think it may have been fixed.

It's been ongoing for me as well, pretty frustrating when for once it wasn't because I decided to "tweak" something. I'm testing out a incero now to see how that works out. I'm at the same $40 price point but on a weaker system in comparison but with a much closer data center. What I learned was man it's easy to restore my data, plex had virtually no down time.

I switched to a server in Hetzner's Germany data center. Been testing for two days and so far my speed tests are faster than they ever were on the Finland data center.
