At about 30 players online, my server can start to drop TPS. When I hit 50 players online, my server can drop to about 13 TPS.
I have optimised entities as much as I can, and I don’t ever want to use a chunk border, so chunk loading is the biggest issue for me (about 50% of lag).
I feel that the server is as optimised as possible, although with more and more players playing the server, I need a way to keep up.
I’m currently on a 12gb plan with Humbleservers, using a Ryzen 9 5900X with 6 virtual cores.
If I want a performance boost, would it actually be any better to invest in a dedicated server (something like Bisect’s https://www.bisecthosting.com/dedicated.php)? Or would I not see much performance improvement seeming it’s still run on a single core CPU?
