Linux srcds_i486 cpu usage

Postby dirker » Wed Sep 15, 2010 3:38 pm

Hi server owners,

I'm currently seeing quite a bit of CPU utilization with the KaYa - v1.3 server. It's running on an Athlon X2 5600 (2x 2.9ghz cores) and spikes up to 95% of one core.

I'm running the server with the following arguments:
Code: Select all
./srcds_i486 -game dystopia -maxplayers 18 -tickrate 66 +mp_startdelay 10 +map dys_vaccine -console -port 27115


Could you please post your results so I can get an idea of what is the usual resource usage?

You are Right Dirker my Server also has a cpu usage of 95% somehow. And I guess thats not how its supposed to be since 2 Dystopia Servers cannot stress out a i7-920 Quad-Core.

hmm looks ok to me, 15% for 5ppl playing, hard to measure though

looked at it earlier when it was full, dunno about cpu usage, but wasnt >90%, i recall load was around 0.25, whatever that means within a xen vm
oh one more number, when doing a "stats" in console cpu tab said ~50, that might all depend on hardware, vm etc. so no idea how accurate that is - think got the same hardware as fairy, i7 quad-core for sure

Hmmm, I'll monitor it some more, but right now with 4 ppl playing its about ~25%.

Somehow now the CPU usage is only 30% on full Meat Factory. But still spikes up on some points.

When US West is full at 16 players, it's 50-60% of one core. Xeon E5420

I still see occasional spikes up to 95%, but they seem less often now. I have a feeling they are very much map related, and I think I saw them mostly on dys_fusion for now.

Is this related to the lag players notice ingame, and to the recent crashes? Funk knows what i'm talking about.
Lyta had a little Vorlon, her skin was pale as snow. And everywhere that Lyta went, the Vorlon was sure to go.

Yes, I think so. Funk told me that there are complaints regarding lag, and I fixed something two days ago which resolves some of the load the machine has to carry.

Over the last days, did you still notice lag?

How often did the server crash? I know it crashed once yesterday while it was full with 16 players - but this could have been me toying around with it a bit trying to find bottlenecks. Did it crash some other time, too?

No, it was only this one crash i think,, the other times it was - albeit massive - only lag.

Didn't play on KaYa since the crash. Lag happened only two times, not counting the crash. Both on the same day i think, the second time was with funk around, the other one some hour or so ago.

If there was any more lag, it was before it finally crashed, as in the round before or something. At least while i was playing.
