So today, Disco, Espon, Poop, Slimez and myself were playing TF2 when we experienced absolutely terrible lag. As of writing this, the lag is still happening. I restarted the server several times and the problem still persisted. I don't know if this will be a problem tomorrow, but if it is, I think we should TEMPORARILY not allow free players to the server, and see if it has any positive effect. I myself am of the mind that we should not allow free players, but that is a discussion for another time. I'll update this page tomorrow if it's still a problem.

According to the srcds mailing list, this update has caused way too much CPU. Usage. This means we have to wait for a fix from Valve, which should be out this week.

I have been on other servers that have no problem.

I have been on other servers that have no problem.

They might have beefier hardware. See this thread:
http://www.mail-archive.com/hlds_linux@list.valvesoftware.com/msg61568.html

This is in the linux list, but it may have spilled over onto Windows. I'll run an update right now in case there was a non-required ninja fix.

Also note that there were nearly 100 thousand people playing TF2 at the same time today, so the server box we are on could have been overloaded, especially if the CPU usage is going through the roof.

just dropped in for a moment and everything looks fine, but there were only 10-12 players on.
I won't be online tonight, but would like to see the server full again and compare - if the server can't handle 24 players then there is a problem.
