Proper Affinity
What would be the best way to do this?
I'm looking for proper affinity on the processes.

I had each srcds on one affinity each
CPU 0/Server 1, CPU 1/Server 2, ect...

Had a lot of people complaining,
So I placed Server 1 on CPU 0 & 1, and then everyone was like WOW what happened it's running so smooth...

Maybe because the OS was using CPU 0 also?

Also, The Priority is set to Normal for each srcds.
If it matters, I'm also running a FPSBooster, Affinity is on all CPU's and Priority is Normal at +fps_max 500.

Box Specs
  • CORE 2 QUAD Q6600(4CPUs @ 2.4Ghz ea.)
  • 4 Gigs RAM
  • 250GB SATA II HD
  • 100Mbit dedicated port
  • Affinity: CPU 0, CPU 1, CPU 2, CPU 3
  • Server 1: CS:S 32 Slot 100Tick
  • Server 2: CS:S 32 Slot 100Tick
  • Server 3: CS:S 32 Slot 100Tick
  • Server 4: CS:S 32 Slot 100Tick

Thanks for any advice!
To be honest, if you are running Windows just don't assign the servers to cores and let Windows balance it, then set the servers to high priority.

Thanks Hazz, I'll try that.
