Great news is within this post!
It’s no secret that our 5/10x servers have been quite laggy on and off the past few weeks, and I’d like to blame it on full server/bad performance fix from rust dev's side.
I am NOT pleased with the way our servers run currently, and I’m not going to stop until I get it running way more stable! I'd like to apologize for the bad performance, but as said then I’m working on to getting this under control asap.
I've been running some tests with my host, and came to the decision to swap, as the current one simply can't supply enough power as promised! Which means I’ve been on the hunt for a new private host, and I’m pretty sure that I found it! Everything is ready to go, and the only change (of course other change than a way more powerful box "Fully dedicated" - which means no longer waiting time for box reboot on crash or ddos/heavy lag) is slight change in ip/gateway.
Servers overall fps should be increased as both the CPU and ram on the new machine is better, internet connection is up to 1Gps as well, and a high rate of bandwidth allowed!
Our current servers are running at about 7-8 Gigs of ram which is maximum shared to it atm, that’s why we are seeing so slow responds from it, huge delay spikes and even rubber banding.
Running more powerful dedicated boxes aren’t going to make it cheaper, but I’m more than willing to offer this to the community, as I’d like to see it grow even further than the 1000 members that we recently just hit! Remember any donation goes directly into hosting fee's as well as paying for website, coders and anything else regarding Rusticles community. At some point, I’ll be upgrading to personal owned dedicated, but there’s still some way to go!
Our servers will be down for up to 6 hours most likely, when we have to move them - this should be happening on Wednesday around 11-12 am gmt, and should be done hopefully around 18.00 pm gmt.
