Lag spikes on server..

I have a server with 10 slots and mostly we play deathrun and other fun maps.

But the server have lag spikes every ~20 seconds. If you play deathrun thats very irritating.

My PC specs are:

Intel Quad Core q9450 2.66 ghz
2GB DDR2 1066mhz
500gb harddisk
Geforce 8800gtx.. not important.

My Server is 100 tick and this is SRCDS.exe:
Quote:C:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -insecure -tickrate 100 +fps_max 999 -game cstrike -autoupdate +maxplayers 10 +map fy_poolparty_v3

This is server.cfg:

100 tick on that connection above 3 players is going to lag.

For deathrun, 33 tick should be fine, and you will get around 8-12 players.
Clan of Doom:

Ok but is 33 tickrate not too low? Because we play also poolparty etc. How much players can play with 66 tickrate?

The problem doesnt really sit on the specs of the machine more of the network connection which is a home connection and its very very poor. I would drop the tickrate to 66 and work your way from there. Good luck

Ow ok, so if I set the best settings for srcds can I run 10 slots also? My pc using Vista(terrible), goes my server faster if I run windows XP Pro?

(sorry for my English im Dutch)

No it won't run faster or better, just less problems to get it online if you use XP.

And yes, you can run 10 slots
