Server Lags

Since Friday the BF1942 server has been laggy, most players having jerky play at some times. This is happening, because the server is undergoing a RAID building at the moment. Hopefully, the server will be back to normal by tomorrow.

Re: Server Lags

I've already contacted the hosting company and they said they would do something about it. As it is now, the server is shitty. Really sorry about that, i know it's annoying playing with constant freezes.

Re: Server Lags

The lags started exactly midnight CET between friday and saturday, so whatever was done then caused this.

Re: Server Lags

Thank you for the information. It seems the lag problems stopped today at around 09:00 CET. At least, the players stopped complaining about it at that time. I entered the server some minutes ago and it was much better. I can't guarantee that the issue is over, because I had no reply, yet, from the hosting company.

Re: Server Lags

A brief update: the server lags still occasionally happen, but much less frequent. I don't know exactly what is the cause of it, since the hosting company said that everything was fine on their side. However, noticed yesterday a large amount of packets on gameport 14567. Maybe, someone is packet flooding the server, causing the lags. I'll monitor the traffic, now.

Re: Server Lags

Although, I've placed some firewall rules that should block any packet flood on gameport, now, the server freezes/lags still happen at some random times of the day. It's most certainly a problem with the CPU resources on the server, some other clients on the same hardware node are abusing it. The hosting company has terrible support, they don't answer and just close my tickets. I've asked them for an upgrade of the server and they simply ignore it.
