Recieving high choke spikes at times..
Hi guys,

I'm trying to find out why the servers we run sometimes have quite high choke spikes. (10 - 20)
Usuaully at the start of a round and dies down a little during the middle of round.
I'm not to sure why choke is caused so maybe some one could post me the correct answer. But my guess would be that its something to do with client wanting to send more packets than the server can take, so the server bounces them back giving off choke?

Server Spec:

Intel q6600
4GB Ram
Windows server 2003

Running off that:

4x 25 Slot CS:S
2x 13 Slot CS:S
1x 32 Slot TF2

Rates are currently set as for the 100tick servers:

sv_minrate 5000
sv_maxrate 30000
sv_maxupdaterate 101
sv_minupdaterate 1

Same for the 66Tick Servers but i'm thinking they may need to be changed?

(Anything else i should change there)?

all servers have some kind of choke spikes for most of our players at start of rounds and a bit during the round.

So basically if any one could give any tips on reducing the choke bursts for our players then that would be a great help.

Thanks in advance,

Got 1 of the 24 slot servers running at 100tick (although i know its not advised to be at that)
and also the 2x 13 slot match servers.

Cpu hasn't gone over about %50 atm and is uaully alot lower than that.

I've also updated my servers rates to:

sv_minrate 20000
sv_maxrate 35000
sv_maxupdaterate 100
sv_minupdaterate 67
sv_mincmdrate 67
sv_maxcmdrate 100

And this has helped a little in reducing the choke. Also a few people said it could be caused at the start of rounds by some of the eventscripts and things like that?

sv_minrate 12000
sv_maxrate 25000 or 30000
sv_maxupdaterate 101
sv_minupdaterate 34
sv_maxcmdrate 101

Can it be a bandwidth issue?

its possible, but doubt it. . . i personally think its a rate/setting issue. . .

Check your IO, check the network , do some maintence on the box , reinstall the game server could be so many things.
