[Question] What are good server specs?


#1

This might be the wrong category I wasn’t sure where to put it!

So people keep timing out on my server and I keep getting a lot of hitch warnings of like 11000 ms, I was wondering if its a server issue and what is good specs for a decent sized server to have.

my current server specs:
2 cores
4 gb of ram
1tb hdd
windows server 2012 r2
Network speeds:
40mb download 350mbs upload.

Thanks

The specs are good, but you may wanna get at least 100mbps internet not to bottleneck connections.


#3

so download is important?


#4

It can be, yeah, especially if you have a lot of resources that need to send data to the server


#5

hmm ok ill look into that and 350 up is good enough?


#6

Yeah, even overkill, my server runs fine with 100 up and down


#7

oh ok thanks for the help

when you have many resources installed and many players with a strong internet connection connect at the same time downloading your resources, 100 mbit/s could be too less. But 350 upload should be more than fine. Maybe think of disable Windows Updates. When you only have 2 CPU cores and an update is started, it could lead to laggs. Check your taskmanager as well.

thank you and i ran a different speed test and i was actually getting 125Mbps download. So its probably i have to many resources and i will try disabling the windows upates asswell.
