  1. Hey Spigot Community!

    I was wondering, how many players/servers could this handle? (A range is fine e.g. 50-100 etc.)

    Hardware:

    Technology: Ivy Bridge
    Processor: Intel Xeon E3 1245v2 (Intel Smart Cache: 8MB)
    Cores: 4
    Threads: 8
    Frequency: 3.4GHz+
    Turbo Boost: 3.8GHz
    Virtualization: Yes
    Ram: 32GB DDR3
    Hard Drive: Intel SSD 320 (2x 120GB SSD)
    Raid: Soft - 0/1 (Raid-1 by default)
    NIC: GigaEthernet

    Network:


    Connection: 100Mbps
    Equipment: Cisco Catalyst
    Bandwidth: Unlimited

    Additional Information:

    Amount of servers: 3
    Plugins on each server:
    • Faction Server: 40-50 plugins
    • Kit PVP Server: 15-20 plugins
    • Prison Server: 30-40 plugins
    Hosting Company: Ovh.com (SP3 package $90.00/m)
    Server Location: North America (Most Likely Canada)
    DDos protection: None atm (Plan on using this idea. Click HERE)


    Thank you, make sure to leave a reply.

  2. 2-300...
     
  3. I would say 350-400. Also, I am looking at renting a server from OVH in the near future for my new server Craft Arcade. Post back with your experiences! I don't understand how they do it so cheap compared to other hosts... anyone got any ideas?

    zaptrem i am with OVH's 3.2GHZ CPU. (32GB RAM, 120GB SSD)
    I have had a large drop of players latley, however with 82 people online, the server did not have the faintest trace of lag - this was with the default bukkit.yml and at least 40 plugins.
     
  5. How do they stand in DDOS attacks? What's your average bandwidth use?

    Was DDoSd with up to 95Mb/sec. At 80Mb/sec server started to lag. At 95Mb/sec it lagged massivley, but did not actually go offline. (100Mb/sec bandwith)

    Ovh did not nullroute the IP or anything. They did not even contact me about it. they said they can nullroute IP's from DDoS attacks, but in practice i think it would take at least 500Mb/sec for them to do so.
     
  7. Is 100mb/s a hard limit? Or is it passable joehot200

    I would like to know that too, i send them a support ticket about it.
    (Tags RBS0 so he can see the info)
     
  9. If your ready for poor support, then OVH is your best choice, I was with them, their support is simply shit
     
  10. You don't need to, just run a speedtest from the server box. (If you have a Linux GUI use speedtest.net if you use the console... there's gotta be something out there.
     
  11. R3DY246 what was you bad experience with their support?

    The speed is 100Mb/sec.
    Thats what they say it is, that what i experience it is.

    However it would be interesting to email OVH and see if the internet is upgradable.
     
  13. ok. Your server banner says 123/140 players online. With those specs and internet you should raise your player limit to around 300 to take advantage of it.

    When i look at a server with large slots and few players - it almost looks like boasting to me.

    about 80 people online average and 300 slots? That would still look like boasting.

    Edit: sent ticket to OVH, lets see how fast they respond.
     
  15. I guess.... My server Zaptrem World has 250 slots but only around 10-30 players. It used to be that it was near full 24/7
