Is there any profile tool to tell which VPS I own is better? I have a VPS from rubyringtech & a VPS from burstNET. Both are CentOS 5.6 one is a intel i7 2600 & the other is a Xeon.

Is there any unix software I can use to test to see which one performs better?

The UnixBench script is a popular benchmarking tool, however, you should keep in mind that your results will vary depending upon what your neighbors are up to when you're using a VPS and your hosting provider will not appreciate it if you're running a benchmarking script regularly.
