Aw man, It’s hard enough as it is to go a day without minecraft. But a day without the SMP server like traveling to Mordor in a wheelchair…without any wheels on it. Hope the server gets back up soon! :’(
well i would say min for ramm would be around 2gb, 4 for a good server, and im not too sure about bandwith, all i know is i dont have a fast enough connection XD, 4mb download 0.6mb upload and with lag of 130ms on a bad day… (today) XD
Andy. Whos Hosting the server at the moment? because i have alot to tell you.
Cause Of Lag= Map Plugin (if being viewed), some other plguins, BB (i reaserched it. its alot of cpu. we might have to turn that off and go whitelisted)
Server Host= where is it hosted? our best bet for a host should be in the UK as its the central for all of us/ Or the east cost. I Will look for another host because from what i hear. the one were on is NOT good at all.
The New Joining Rule- need votes for this. I vote that when somone joins. we say hellothere name
they have 10 seconds to respond. then we tell them to respond in 10 seconds. if they do not respond then we kick them. if they rejoin repeat the process. This is to asure that no Bots- afkers- greifers get in, it also can free up server space.
Ugh, its been two days without the server…I feel like I’m going to die! That server consumed my life and now I dont know what to do without it! Well, I could always go outside but, that would mean I actually have to, you know, leave my room… shivers
A support ticket was submitted, and is currently being looked at.
The cause of the suspension was for using more than 200% of our alloted CPU for a prolonged period of time. We have access to 2 x 2.8Ghz CPUs.
We are having the same problems as alot of other servers at the moment running bukkit (see http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/high-cpu-usage.8295/). The server load would usually be around 10-30%, but lately it has been much higher. The problem may not even be bukkit itself, but changes in the Minecraft code.
So please bear with us, we will hopefully try and get the server up within the next day, and then start a long process of trying to get everything sorted out.
