Hardware of Dulles test instance - chilly_bang - 10-24-2017 07:04 AM


I'm trying to test performance of different javascript frameworks and need for the tests reliable information about the hardware is in use.

I know from this thread, that Dulles Thinkpad would have "dedicated machines that are fairly high-end though that's just showing how much CPU would be consumed on high-end hardware".

But what is this hardware exactly? And what hardware runs on other Dulles instances?

Thank you! I would like to share my test results after i'm ready

Hey Chilly_bang -

I'm pretty sure Pat Meenan runs the Dulles agents out of his home, as referenced in this tweet: https://twitter.com/patmeenan/status/760183077058543617

Several years ago he gave a tour of that hardware here: http://blog.patrickmeenan.com/2014/09/updated-webpagetest-data-center-tour.html
But that was back in 2014 and I'm not sure if it's changed since then.
