Lag

    This lag is ridiculous.
    Constant minor lagging spikes.

    I get lag spikes too, sometimes really big ones, that they last 15+ second O.o

    Any tips on how to reduce in game lag would be great =)

    I'm working on it as we speak.

    This is not going to be an easy task. It's a server-side problem.

    Currently I made a few adjustments.

    Tweaked permissions (srcds folder was owned by root)
    Code:
    chown srcds -R /home/srcds
    Changed server startup line..
    Code:
    /bin/nice -n -1 screen -A -m -d -S css-server ./srcds_run -console -secure -game cstrike +exec server.cfg +map zm_survival_Final +maxplayers 64 +fps_max 2000 +ip 66.197.126.19 +port 27015 -pidfile srcds.pid
    Currently messing around with process affinities:
    Code:
     taskset -p 0x3 `cat /home/srcds/srcds_l/cstrike/srcds.pid` >/dev/null 2>&1
    And, a very simple and sweet "fix" that appears to be making a huge difference so far...
    Code:
    [root@ags015 srcds_l]# ps aux | grep irq
    root		 3  0.0  0.0	 0	0 ?		SN   00:17   0:00 [ksoftirqd/0]
    root		 6  0.0  0.0	 0	0 ?		SN   00:17   0:00 [ksoftirqd/1]
    root	  2788  0.0  0.0  2628  300 ?		Ss   00:17   0:00 irqbalance
    root	 25525  0.0  0.0 51184  704 pts/3	S+   01:11   0:00 grep irq
    [root@ags015 srcds_l]# kill 2788
    IRQ was was fucking with the server process priority which was causing the lag. Death to irqbalance! (it's purely experimental so far)
