Hello all,

So i've been using pgblitz for over a month now and I decided to give GCE a chance and use it as a feeder.
How should I proceed with creating and start using a GCE VM? Should I create the vm manually from Google's Cloud Platform or I must use the steps/process from pgblitz (option 8 - pg cloud).
Because reading around the forum there are a lot of people saying that they use nvme storage option and from what I saw that option is not available from the pbglitz process.

Now I'm using a cheap dedicated server from oneprovider with the specs below:
Intel Atom C2750 - 2.4 GHz - 8 core(s)
RAM: 8GB - DDR3
Storage: 1x 1TB (HDD SATA)

Generally it performs ok but repairing and unpacking sometimes take too much time (nzbget)!
Let's say I'm setting up the GCE VM. How it should perform compared to the one I have?

Thank you! :)

Ok great!

However now I have more questions!!
From the Cloud Platform you can select vcpu, ram, storage and see the monthly price.
With the built-in pgblitz process what's the setup/specs in terms of ram and storage?
Is there any chance we can know beforehand how much will it cost per month?

Also since you experiment a lot with GCE do you have any idea how well a 4 vCPU (maybe 2 vCPU) will performed compared with the Atom C2750 that I'm using know?
I mean, will 2 vCPU (longer period) perform decent enough for repairing/unpacking or a 4 vCPU (shorter period) is advisable?

Thank you for your time and sorry for all the questions! Since it's my first gce vm I don't want to make the wrong choices and stuck with it for 2 months!

2 core are a longer period but slow
4 core are not so long but faster
8 core are a beast / credit killer

2 gb ram to low !!!!
4gb ram are a longer period but slow
8gb ram are not low but faster
16Gb ram are a credit killer

1 Nvme are okay.
2 nvme are faster for basic filling. ( cost more )
3 nvme are credit killer.
4 nvme are to heavy

Some.user say

4 core 8 GB ram. 2 nvme as raid0

Enjoy. That was nearly 100hrs of coding but it cut out the confusion when we had our manual guide
