What do you guys think about these servers as a possible replacement for the MC server(linux) and maybe even the 144. Windows(ark/Terraria)?

https://www.soyoustart.com/us/offers/2004sys29.xml

I'm looking at the prices, cores, GHz, HD, RAM specs for that 'SYS-LE-3' one in particular. The MC box would get a +2 core, 0.1GHz cpu boost, and 64GB RAM(32GB current). The Windows one, would get the +2 cores, 64GB RAM(32GB current), but it'd lose 0.5GHz. Everything I am seeing online is a mix up; most people say a higher GHz is better, but some say it's better to have the extra 2 cores even if it is a lower frequency.

I've been keeping an eye out for 64GB RAM ones lately, and this seems to good to pass up. I think it'd also save us about $35/month(i'm going to contact them after work today).

If we did get this, would @Strike , @raven, or @Shadow be able to set it up? Linux. 😐

What do we have now?  It hard to compare without having something to compare against.

Personally, I believe more cores are better,  You can process more data at the same time, imo, it is better than processing less data faster.

I'd say keep the Windows Box as is and upgrade MC. For the 144 box, Terrarias and Starbound would probably suffer a bit ingame wise - Those games can only take advantage of 1 CPU Core/thread, as a result a higher core clock makes them run better, could have a 64 core machine at 1 ghz, and they'd die ingame. (If they were coded properly, then it'd be great to have more cores - Minecraft is also coded this way, an MC Server only replies on 1 core rather than several). 

 

TL;DR
I think MC would do great on the new box, no obvious downsides 
144 Needs the core clock as a high as possible to make them run as well as possible (Due to programming negligence I guess), Terraria and Starbound can only take advantage of 1 cpu core, so the higher the speed the better. Would love to see a blistering 5ghz lol

From what I am seeing, the RAM speeds themselves would stay the 1600MHz DDR3 for the MC box("dmidecode -t memory"  command in putty). It'd get a huge bump on the 144 box. That one is 1063MHz, it'd get 1600MHz too.

P.S. Star/terraria do use multiple cores/threads(clicky). About the only time you're going to see differently is for old old games(Renegade is one, it does not play well with any other server).

Can you look at the performances (task manager on windows for example, htop on linux terminal (I think), I don't know what is the current server OS) when it's under stress and see whether the bottleneck is the CPU or the RAM memory or something else?

Plunge is taken; ordered two new server PC's. It came out to $176.26($48 was setup fees, and $20.28 taxes). @Shadow said he'd work on getting the MC one setup, the Windows one I am waiting for them to reply to my Q's about licensing(offered Windows Server 2012 R2 OS, yet there's no option when I try), KVM , and anti-ddos.

We got the rest of the month to toy around with those things, so I'm not in a hurry atm. Looks like Shadow has already started on the MC side of things.:yahoo-coffee:

Plans this month are: 

  • Dropping the current 'Temp' Renegade Marathon box before the 20th, copying ranks/etc to the regular Marathon box. That was something I tried to do last month, but it just didn't work out with what I thought was Ddosings(whole NY datacenter was flooded at the same time instead).
  • Dropping the MC box for one of the new servers(IP: 142.4.217.102)
  • Dropping the Ark/Terraria/Backups box for the other new server(IP: 142.4.218.51). If it can handle everything ofc, cpu wise. 

It should save us about $25.39/month(forgot about the VAT tax).
License + Ark + MC currently
25 + 83.99 + 66.67
=175.66 

License + Ark + MC possibly
25 + 53.99 + 53.99 + 13% VAT tax
=150.27

Moving this topic to Announcements since we have no hidden information...and so I don't have to make a new topic(cause lazy). :yahoo-onthephone:

Mini update: before I even got a reply to the support ticket, Shadow's already getting things done on the new MC box. lol. You may see some irc spam if you're an IrcOP.

I got most of the updates and other Windows crap done today. Got 4 Ark servers running, two Terraria's, and a Starbound running. Atm it's copying over about 400GB of backups.

So, those of you who play those games, get to testing the servers out. IP: 142.4.218.51. The ports will be the same as what you connect to now.

Setup of the IRC / MC box went well over the weekend , have the majority of it ready to go, I've upgraded the OS from CentOS 7 -> CentOS 8 and our IRC from UnrealIRCD 4 -> 5 which basically means,

Pro's: Security++

Cons: Shall need to re-generate all the IrcOP passwords with the new encryption UnrealIRCD 5 uses.

---

Also with the new beefed up specs of this box I've been able to provision all the MC servers with double the RAM they had before 😄

You can test the new IRC / MC server @ 142.4.217.102 , I want to make sure everything's as solid as possible before making the official switch over so that migration issues are kept to a minimum / zero (fingers crossed)
