Well, I don't know much about the Windows-Server 2008 R2 but couldn't it 
be that if I share the realy server with too many other clients not only 
my performance goes down but as well the clock is getting slower?
If so (?) I can ask him to either reduce the no. of clients or I will 
look for another provider - no?

But as I said I don't know enough yet about this.

Do you know a tool to check easily the available performance of the vps?
