So I've been trying to get scoreboards to works on my server for the past year or so without causing lag but every time I've tried at 40+ players it starts to hit the TPS so I'm hoping the spigot community can help me find a solution I have multiple scoreboards setup for mob arenas, parkour, votes etc. These all work fine. However, when I set one up for top balance is lags the server to high hell, I believe this is caused by essentials player data being at around 20,000+ unique players and it takes essentials a hot second to sort them all. This in turn delays placeholders in holographic displays from updating. This is a serious issue on one of the older servers, trying to load a baltop scoreboard after a restart will just crash the server. I've tried: - Giving the server 30GB RAM but it doesn't fix the hit on TPS each time the scoreboard is loaded - Using /essentials cleanup 1 1000 2 to remove old player data but all the data seems to return after a restart (maybe doing something wrong) - Only using single placeholder leaderboards instead of one that holds top 10 - Manually removing player data that hasn't been used in a while but that kinda risky and time-consuming - Using the holographic scoreboards plugin rather than extensions but this has the same issue So I'm at a loss for how to get a baltop scoreboard to work consistently. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated or just another way to display these leaderboards.
