Server FPS Drop
[/quote]I'm hoping someone can help me out here as i've exhausted all possible ideas i can think of aside from telling myself the server hardware can't handle the server.

Here's my delima. I'm renting a server from AoWC so my access is very limited. When the server is idle i get 512FPS no problem... this is perfect till i get to about 23 players on the server. When i start exceeding 24+ to max 32. The server FPS drop drastically. It bounces around 12-35 causing massive ingame lag.

When talking to my provider they tell me the server is fine. When it was full i got them to check CPU and Memory usage which was @ 25%cpu and 384mb used.

Is there anything i can do to fix/find out what is going on.

My startup line is as follows:
Quote:-game tf -console +ip -port 27015 +maxplayers 32 +map pl_badwater +exec server.cfg

Here is my server.cfg

What's your processor? If it's a quad core, you're maxing out one core and it is a hardware issues.

Please do not PM me for server related help

tell art of war to move you to a different box. More then likely they have you on a box that is semi-overloaded and when your server gets full the box becomes overloaded. TF2 is resource heavy and is often misjudged by game server providers.
Thanks everyone -- I got them to move me to a different box and it fixed the issue. Getting solid 512ish fps now right up to 32/32
