Hey Spigoteers, I have some questions around the details of how the CPU factors into a Bungee Network. My main question is, considering that Minecraft is single threaded, how does the CPU work with multiple servers and Bungee running? For example, do the servers get given a single CPU core each, or is the work from all the servers being divided amongst all the CPU cores at the same time? - If they are given a single core each, can you control how the servers are grouped? - If not (most likely), is it then better to create many servers with a low player count on each, or one single server to handle the max amount of players based on other factors of the server (e.g. RAM)? My thinking is that each server has a standard overhead, so the more servers you launch, the more resources are taken up in these overheads BEFORE the server is even under load. This brings me to the mini games. Performance wise (and lets pretend we are speaking of a well built mini game plugin with negligible performance issues) would it be better to run multiple games (e.g. 4 seperate arena's, 16 players each) each on it's own server OR run multiple arenas (and potentially multiple games) in a single server. Again, my thinking is that running games, each on their own server, uses overhead that otherwise wouldn't be used if they were all run on a single server. I know that it is more complicated, with plugins, hardware specs, player number fluctuations and many more factors, but there must be some idea about the role of the CPU and the best way to approach a network of servers. NOTE. To give a specific example, I have (currently offline) a Dedicated that runs a Xeon E3-1241v3 (3.5ghz) with 32GB of RAM. I have two main servers running, a lobby and a survival world. There are also 3 mini game servers running Eggwars (gaelitoelquesito), Skywars (gabbo200), and Super Paintball (iSach). I have the basic group of plugins most have, including Essentials, PowerfulPerms, Minecompass and a 6 or so others. I intend to build in more plugins, but I am starting off slim, and building slowly. Thank you for any thoughts.
