Due to ARKs early development stage, VDS and dedicated server owners who wish to run a server must plan accordingly for the high resource requirements of this game. Currently, you can expect ARK to use 2.5 to 3.5GB of ram at idle, and anywhere from 5-10% CPU usage(25-35% of a single core). This usage will go up with active players. You can also expect ARK to do a decent amount of reading from the hard disk in the initial stages of booting. This may or may not cause problems for other servers on your machine.
