Choke when users talking.
The problem I have is that the choke goes to like 30 and tickrate drops to around 80 when users are talking.
In my book it would be a rate/bandwidth issue.

sv_maxrate 30000
sv_minrate 25000
sv_maxupdaterate 101
sv_minupdaterate 100
sv_maxcmdrate 101
sv_mincmdrate 100
sv_unlag 1
sv_maxunlag .5

Servers Specs
CPU: E2180 @ 2.0GHz (Runs 1000 FPS stable, 20 - 30% usage on 12 slots).
HDD: 7.200 rpm
OS: Windows Server 2008 SP1 - Standard

Connection Specs
Download: 20 mbit
Upload: 2 mbit

If I change sv_voicecodec to vaudio_miles, the choke dissapears, so my conclusion would be that I lack the bandwidth.
The problem is that the choke and tickdrop happens even if there is only 2 users on the server so what else could be causing it?
You might try turning your rates down a little and trying it then. I am not sure if that is the problem however. Hope that works though!
Tried with maxrate at 15000, same problem Sad
Your bandwidth is definatly the problem try running it at 66 tick may save some bandwidth

Why does it happen when only 2 users are talking then :S? (Server is 12 slot)
Your bandwidth isn't good enough Toungue (Upload). It is 100TICK right? And do you use that connection to play on?
Also try lowering maxrate and min rate, does the choke go higher as there are more people? It happens because of your bandwidth limitations, you need a higher upload speed

Woot! We've posted at the same time Toungue Nice Big Grin
Hahaha, also it wont matter if he uses that connection to play on either, the server is hosted by him, and you spelled bandwidth wrong Smile not brandwidth

... typo.. Smile
Well at 75 tick the choke is gone, I can't feel a difference on 100 tick and 75 though, so I'll use 75 until I get a fiber connection Big Grin
Okay, good luck with fiber Toungue

I've waited 1½ year now! Smile
Same, ordered before Christmas (when I got a letter), but I have been waiting since I first heard of it Big Grin
I've requested it. Never heard back for them Sad
well source will use 10KB/s MAXIMUM. when you got 2 mbits, you should have about 210-220KB/s which means you could run a 20 slots server on 100TICK 1000FPS without any problems
Slå den med jeres fiberforbindelser...
