10 Months In...

Post by ThatBum » Wed Mar 21, 2012 9:55 pm

Yep, my Gmod server's been rolling for 10 months now, It's seen constant use. It's the top SpaceBuild server of all of Gmod according to GameTracker. Nothing but excellent service and performance from NFo. The uptime is legendary. And the machine is a flippin' dual Xeon beast. Can't ask for more than that.

Still loving the relative freedom on the machines and the custom control panel. I actually had my first learning experience with MySQL here in NFo, and am learning Lua scripting. :D

I got enough donations to run the game and web servers for two years yet. :P Apparently people really appreciate my way of running it. I put NFo prominently in my MOTD but no referrals yet...I wanna see what high CPU priority is like before I commit anything.

Keep on keepin' on, guys.

High CPU Priority does nothing except put your server above others when high server load comes up.

It is not only when high load comes up, it would be considered a higher priority all the time.

Well yeah, it's whatever the Windows equivalent of niceness is on Unix. Devotes more CPU time to the process over others of equal usage. Just wondering what it would practically do. Probably not much, as the machine has 8 physical cores, enough to satisfy the server processes on the machine, I'd imagine.

We underload our machines so much that higher CPU priority doesn't usually make a difference :).
