1.15.2 running on low TPS

Hey,
I am new to this forum, I hope it is the right category.

I am running a little community server since a few days. Sadly it reaches low TPS since day one. And I don´t know why. It is one of the lifetime Servers of zaphosting. It has 5.4GB Ram and 24 Slots. But the maximum players are like 10 or something.

I did actually read a few posts and changed spigot, bukkit and paper settings like the optimisation thread told me. But it is still laggy. Maybe you can help me?

Thank you :slight_smile:

Discord is usually a better place for questions like this but there’s a few easy things you can do.

Firstly you need to change your startup flags to use aikars, https://mcflags.emc.gs/
make sure you set your xms and xmx 1.5gb~ lower than your total system memory

You can also get rid of EntityTrackingFixer as its now redundant in Paper, FAWE can be a little dangerous too.

Not sure which optimisation guide you followed but if it wasn’t these one’s take a look:
https://www.spigotmc.org/threads/guide-server-optimization⚡.283181/
https://www.spigotmc.org/posts/3684550

Your timings seem to suggest is mainly chunk loading so if after all of this you’re still having issues you can try the experimental light optimisation build found here https://github.com/PaperMC/Paper/pull/3506

Back up your world first though

Thank you very much for your help :slight_smile: Sadly I can´t change the startup flags, cause they are managed by zap-hosting. But I will try the other steps. Thank you :slight_smile: and I followed the first Link (Guide-server-optimization)

Thank you!

No problem, it’s worthing contacting your host though. The flags are really important and some times they’ll change them for you if you ask :slight_smile:
