    What kind of processors are they exactly, and what are they clocked at. If you have the model numbers I can probably find out for you from them alone, but any information with them will help. Typically CPU mining would be out of the question though honestly and I'll give you an example to help you understand. I have a six-core processor @3.3 GHz. At most I can get 40-45 KH/s, maybe I could hit 50 KH/s but that would be tops. Even with 20 of these at max throttle, you're only talking about a maximum of 1,000 KH/s or 1 MH/s. Maybe you can get close to that and pull 850 KH/s, that would net you about 3250-3750 Dogecoins per day (at the current difficulty). Considering what the VPS's cost, unless they're free you won't be making any profit.

    https://litecoin.info/Mining_hardware_comparison is a great little chart that you can use to get rough estimates of what you can expect from specific types of hardware for your hashrate/speed. It's not 100% accurate, and your own rates will depend on a number of factors, but it's a very helpful guide to estimate what you might see.

    Never mine dogecoin, litecoin, bitcoin or any other satured cryptocurrency. It's just a waste of time. If you want to make money in crypto, you need to always mine at new coin launches and hope that the coin will become big and raise in value. 4/5 times this will not be case, and you will make $5-10 per MH/s and day. However, that fifth time you can make up to $100 per day. You can look here for new releases: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=159.0

    CPU mining is almost never profitable, especially now when the scrypt ASIC miners are on the way. Instead I'd recommend you setting up some sort of bot on your VPN's.

    If you get free electricity and you're not using the vps for anything else, why not?

    It would be easier to buy a mining rig that can pull 1600khs That way you can mine any coin.

    Day of cpu mining is dead. You can do it if you have free electricity. It would be better for you to join a pool as you mentioned that you are not so expert.
