Parameters of test of VPS performance

I have used the following code to test the performance of the VPS:

bash <(wget --no-check-certificate -O - https://raw.github.com/mgutz/vpsbench/master/vpsbench)

This test gives details of:
(i) The CPU,
(ii) The RAM,
(iii) The I/O (Input Output) speed;
(iv) The time to BZip a 25 MB file and
(iv) The download speed.
