recommended connection_download and uploadrate?

Post by Fisch.666 » 10 Jun 2008 23:36

Hi!

Are there any recommended connection_uploadrate and conection_downloadrate settings:
<connection_uploadrate>512</connection_uploadrate>
<connection_donwloadrate>8192</connection_donwloadrate>
for an dedicated root server with a high bandwith? How many upload and downloadrate does an TMNF and a TMUF server use?

Thanks in advance for an reply.

More than anything, it depends on how much you need -- basically, how many players are you expecting..?

Hi!

First thanks for your replys.

Mhhh, i don't know my uploadrate because its not possible for me to test the uploadrate of the server from my home. (slow DSL). But it's a DS3000 dedicated server from hetzner.de:

I have set the max_players for both servers to 48, but i don't think that the TMUF server will be very popular...

Hmmm, I suggest 2048/2048.

If you'll know your connection rate i will help you.

if you have really high bandwidth and no usage limitation, i will personally suggest between 8000/8000 and 20000/20000, especially if you keep the server p2p enabled. 2000/2000 is perhaps (probably?) sufficient, but why risking limitation if you have no reason to do it ?

I use 16384, and it seems to run fine with 40+ players all day long.... That host seems to be pretty speedy though, so I'm sure you can get away with whatever you want.

1. What's the server's bandwidth?

2. Is the connection being used for anything else (ie, do you run the server off of your personal PC) ?

3. How many players are you expecting?

1. dont know telling you the truth. im using roadrunner cable internet. i've been using this internet and running the servers for about 3 years now. they have never said anything to me yet.
2. Is the connection being used for anything else (ie, do you run the server off of your personal PC) ?


2. i have the server pc going to the cable modem, and then i have the router going to the cable modem. which is suppling internet to 2 other pc's. the cable modem has 2 IP's.
3. How many players are you expecting?
3. ohhh around 40 i would say.

thx for all of your help.

Edit : *Traffic Usage is for free. We will restrict the connection speed to 10 MBit/s if more than 1000 GB/month are exceeded. Optional, a permanent 100 MBit/s-bandwidth will be charged 0,09 € (incl. VAT) per additional GB.

So you have a Gigabit connection which is reduced if you go over 1000 GB/month - Not much chance of that unless you stick a jukebox on there as well.

Based on a 10MBit/s connection = 10,485,760 bits per second = (divide 8.) 1,310,720 bytes per second = (divide 1024.) 1,280 Kilobytes per second.
Based on a 100MBit/s connection = 104,857,600 bits per second = 13,107,200 bytes per second = 12,800 Kilobytes per second
based on a 1000MBit/s connection = 1,048,576,000 bits per second = 131,072,000 bytes per second = 128,000 Kilobytes per second

I think :)

The dedicated config is in Kbps (kilo bits per second, yes in old config files it was wrongly indicated KBps), so only divide Mbps by 1024. Anyway the main rate of interface can't be reached in reality for real used datas, so you should at least divide by 2 or 3 to have a more realist max value.
Also, if the server have some other usage, or other TM servers, don't forget to reduce each server/tool rate ;)

:) I rarely see over 5Mb/s on my server - anything up to 32 players normally.

No, there are no methods to control that on a server. Restarting is the only way AFAIK.
