    So I log on this morning and I see over 6,000 entities with only 75 players online.
    Very strange considering I barely get 2-3k entities with over 100.

    So I butchered thinking it was mobs (cronjob broke with bungee have to fix it)
    I checked wg report and it was 4,500 arrows...

    Can someone explain how that happened? I highly doubt someone made that much to lag the server.
    Don't have any plugins that modify weapons.

    Skeletons are learning how to crash servers now :\

    But really, never ran into this - hope you get it fixed!!

    Nobody is OP nor Creative other than myself, heck my mods only have chat commands, and I know them all in real life. (none online)
    So no idea what is causing it, but it hasn't climbed up again in a while.

    Keeping an eye for a bit, rather not restart right now as I want to do some updates before restarting.
     
  5. Yeah sounds like a case of Skeles excessively shooting arrows. Probably at someone AFKing behind a closed door. I recall going AFK from time to time with tons of arrows stuck to my front door.

    Wouldn't they eventually disappear? o_O
     
  7. It might be skeleton mobspawner(also called "butcheries") + afk player, that wait for many skeletons spawn, to kill they and get xp.

    Doubt it, since I butchered and 1,500 appeared a few minutes later.

    I have had similar issues and had to write a scheduled task to remove all arrows every hour.

    No idea how they got there or why they don't despawn.

    I am setting up the same cronjob i have for myself just in case it happens to him again.
    There has to be a reason for this, and its not skeletons...

    When this happens go to the coordinates 0,0 - Are there a ton of arrows there?
     
  12. For me, there a ton of them spawning at 0,0.
