Game Server Bandwidth Usage?

May 4, 2008

For research can someone tell me what is the average transfer ratio for a game server (ie Inbound vs Outbound)

So if a game server used 200GB outbound. How much Inbound would this equate to?

Bandwidth Monitoring :: Create Bandwidth Charts Of Network Objects

Apr 3, 2009

I have a Sonicwall NSA 3500. Does anyone know if you can use it to create bandwidth charts of Network Objects (e.g. IPs or Groups of IPs)?

I am thinking something like Cacti, but I don't know the code to pull that info or if it's even technically possible.

Game VPS

May 3, 2007

i want to say that at one point in time, powervps or solarvps installed gaming software, like half life, so well, you couls have a game server.

Are there any vps hosts that allow this? I couldnt find any info on those websites, but a couple years ago im sure i saw such a feature.

Also, if i do buy a vps or a dedicated server that allows me to use such gaming software, via ssh how would i accomplish the installation?

Me and 2-3 others have this game we'd like to put on a server, but because it's going to be a private server with only us 2-3 people ~ we were also wondering if the software could be installed on a cpanel/whm vps or server at the same time?

Need A UK VPS For Game Server

Sep 6, 2008

Hello all, First time poster on the forum and i hope you can all answer my questions, thanks.

About 2 weeks ago I bought a team fortress 2 gameserver from a provider in the U.K and it has been great and it was a good price.

A few days ago i was speaking to a friend and he suggested that i should use a VPS because it is cheaper and i could run maybe 2 32 man slot servers on a VPS.

I was just wondering if anyone has tried this, is it a good idea?, what is the cheapest UK VPS provider? i think easyspace is the best i could find.

I am currently paying 15 pound a month for a 20 man team fortress 2 server and i can get a 32 man for 24, so anything below that is great.

Many thanks all, and look forward to seeing the replies.

Game Servers On A VPS

Apr 2, 2009

Personally I would never follow this route (hosting gameserver(s) on a VPS), but maybe some people on these forums do and I'm quite interested in what these people run (game+slots), on what hardware/OS, at which host and their opinion about the performance of it.

Looking For Web Hosting For A Web Game

Oct 21, 2009

First I would like to start by explaining my past and current situation.

When I was in High School I created a web game called that was intended for me to learn how to Code PHP and to create things with a couple of friends.

However, within 3 days the game exploded and receiving large amounts of hits and users by nothing but word of mouth. Before I knew what to do, my host said the price of my next month was going to go up from $5 to $50, and at the time I knew nothing about web hosting and was making (barely) enough money from Google Ad-sense so I gladly paid them to continue working on the game.

As the site got larger, the host continued to ask for large amounts of money until I could no longer afford the game because the host was kicking me off of his hosting because I was simply taking up too much of his space.

(I was going to link my daily usage data here, but apparently I have to post 5 times first to add links.)

Now, there is more.

I am NOT hosting the same game, but I am expecting similar numbers just increased a bit higher with a few differences.

This game extensively uses PHP GD Image Functions to generate images for characters and map data. So I expect the server load to be much higher. But PHP GD Image Functions must be on the server, Which I do not anticipate to be a problem.

What is the recommended solution for web hosting? I live in a fairly remote area and could not host my own server, but I am afraid of being removed from a hosting plan again after what happened last time.

Game Servers FPS Way Too Low Need Help

Oct 26, 2006

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?

Game Server On VPS ...

Aug 18, 2008

I just got a dedicated server yesterday for my website. I originally had it on a VPS, but sharing the server with numerous other people bogged down the harddrive.

Anyway, I got a dedicated with a Quad-Core 2.5Ghz processor(Q9300), 150gb Raptor, 8 Gb Ram (Yes, Eight), 100Mb connection, on Windows Server 2008 Standard. (Server is at )

Well, it will be a few months before the website takes off to heights requiring this power. I just bought it now so I don't have to keep upgrading when hitting the ceiling.

Unfortunately, I'm paying $200 a month with not much action. However, windows 2008 comes with Hyper-V software, so I can run VPS's. I was thinking about selling like one super-powerful VPS (at least 4 gig ram dedicated) to someone who wants to start a game server. I'd ask just for like $50 bucks a month, which is pretty darn good for the server specs.

As this is not the offers forum, which I can't post in, I'm asking if these are good enough specs for someone to host a bomb game server on? Anyone know a forum where I could get some offers?

Is My Game Server Doing Ok

Jun 2, 2007

I decided to setup a Counter Strike Source game server on my spare laptop which has the following specs:

850mhz Pentium III

Surprisingly, it can manage 24 players (haven't had more people on yet) with very little noticeable lag and only with a 1.3MBit upload speed. :-) It took some fine tuning with the server rates but it's doing pretty well so far.

Hosting For An Indie Game.

Sep 21, 2008

Looked around the site but I am so new to this that I could not tell if anyone had asked about a situation that was truly similar.

I am trying to find a good host for the promotion, download, purchase and forum for an indie game.

I estimate 220 gig per month at our peak. We have good programmers but we know nothing about web hosting. We just have one guy who made a website with Joomla once. (we will probably be using this to build our website.) We are looking for 30$ to 50$ range. Is this silly?

Have googled it but prices and services varied so wildly that I was forced to believe that some of them were lies.

Game Server Optimization?

Feb 18, 2008

I hope some of you folks could give me some pointers here. I have a server that is used for a gaming clan's purposes. Nothing major as far as games go, but what I got I want running at peak efficiency.

The most important is the Counter-Strike source. I really need the kernel frequency to be tweaked for this. The number one question is can I merely modify the existing config file and recompile that or do I need to start all over? If I could do that is it something like make old or something to that matter?

I am running a couple other servers as well, but there is never a time where all the servers have anyone in them. I keep everything running. After installing some weird stuffs here and there I got the memory usage to go down. I think. Regarding a scenario of having more than one instance of a game, is there any way to share memory between them?

My Swap. Is there a way to force idling games to move to it instead of using physical memory?

The kernel is what I really need to take care of. I'm still somewhat of a n00b and have just switched from centos to debian to top it off. So any tips would make my day. Thanks for reading me.

Running A Game On A Server

Apr 5, 2008

I'm a flight Sim Buffer, I use Microsoft flight simulator X Delux, I also have real flying hours under my belt too.

My Question is, what would I need to have FSX running 365 days of the year with upto 100 Connections at all times from it, plus teamSpeak?

Should I Rent a gaming server and allow my costs to increase, which taking into account I have three children, would be quite hard? Or is there a Gaming server service that I can use?

Any help would be great, also I picked this topic, and I'm quite new for posting, so do forgive me for posting in the wrong topic if thats the case.
