    Game Servers FPS Way Too Low Need Help

    Alright, I have been running game servers for about 8 months now, but I am having some issues with a new box I just ordered in Ny. I only have 1 server on it, which is a CS 1.6 server and it is getting HORRIBLE FPS. Now usually when I put a new server on a box it always gets constant fps, so if I set it to 500 it will pretty much stay at 500, this has been the case on 10+ boxes I have. This one is getting from about 100-300 with a few spikes to 500. Now as far as running the game server, I know what I am doing, however this must me an issue with the server.

    It is a Dual Opteron 252 with 2gb's of ram.(Plenty to run a high fps server)

    The only thing I can think of is maybe the timer set in the linux kernel is too low. If so how would I change this (Never done it before)

    Anyone else have similar problems? Any ideas what could be the problem?

    Thanks in advanced!

    Regards, Brad

    Hey Steven, I am fairly new with Linux, and to be honest I am a bit unsure what you mean. If you could elaborate a bit I would appreciate it.

    Thanks A Lot, Brad

    Sorry i read the thread quick, download the latest kernel and compile it up change the HZ value to 1000 should do the trick.

    Look in the howto section on compiling the kernel if you don't know how.
