I will try and read this but, you can't srcds does not support multi-core.

Also if english is not your first language we have support forums in many languages.

Hi, install "screen" (aptitude install screen).

Then, use this command to start SRCDS :

screen -dmS <name of the screen> taskset -c <processor number> <command>

example :

screen -adsml cssource taskset -c 0 ./srcds_run -game cstrike +maxplayers 16 +map de_dust2 -port 27015 -console

PS: Could you tell me where you from ?

i'm from romania.

what you gave me there is for set affinity.

I want to use both processors for one srcds server
You can't use more than one processors for one srcds server.

You can use "taskset -c 0,1 ..." to set affinity for both processors. If you omit the whole "taskset -c 0" part the linux scheduler automatically uses both processors for the server.

The game server itself isn't programmed to make use of multiple processors in parallel. Thus there is no additional boost of "using" the both processors. That's why it's usually recommended to use "taskset -c 0", "taskset -c 1" etc. to assign the servers to specific processors. That way the linux scheduler doesn't have to change the processor where the game server process is run. This is technically the optimal solution, but here it's given too much value by server admins who don't actually know what they're talking about.
I tried to give a simple answer.
