PostSubject: Insane lag this morning   Sat Dec 21, 2013 8:09 am

We've had at least 4 or 5 people mention it nearly back to back. Im getting hit for 10+ seconds at a time personally. Doesn't seem quite as.. passive as it normally is.

There does not appear to be any lag at the moment.

Lag can be caused by a number of sources.
- Every hour on the half hour the games writes the in memory files back to disk (normall a few seconds lag)
- Every 6 hours the server zips and copies all the game data files (normally 10-20 seconds lag)
Outside of these the most common cause of lag is your ISP.  Symptoms are that you are the only one lagging.  Solution - reset your modem or change ISP provider or check your wireless connection.
If a group, but not all players are getting lag then it will be a local area ISP problem.  The closer the problem is to Florida the wider spread the lag will be.
If everyone is lagging then the problem is near or at the interface to the server itself.

Once previously, we had consistent lag that would not clear over time.  Almost all of the above will clear with time (and besides which there is nothing I can do about them).  It turned out that the server needed restarting and this clear it.  It is a very old version of Linux and it had been running continuously for several years.
There is no indication that we are there yet but I will monitor it.

There is no problem with the power of the server box, disk space, RAM or bandwidth available.

It affected us again just now. Me and Kurtz got at the same time major lag spikes while others didnt. Can it be cause both me and Kurtz come from europe? Cause the ones who are from N-America didnt get this.

It has nothing to do with my modem or router, checked internet and its working fine, am streaming a movie without problem for the last 5 hours. can open youtube next to it and its done loading in a flash. So I can almost positively say it is not from my side

It started with just us but I think now everyone has it, maybe it is time for one of those server-reboots? Smile
