Hello, i want to know what do i need to run a no lag server...

Hmmm... if i have in these situation: 500 people/day and 1000 people/day:

-> CPU: P4? Dual Core? Opteron? Dual Opteron? Another?
-> Memory Ram: 1GB is ok? 2, 3, 4, 8? How does it influences on the speed? why?
-> Upload Rate: 1 Mbps? 10 Mbps? 100 Mbps? 1000 Mbps?
-> Bandwidth: 1000 GB, 1500 GB, 2500 GB or unlimited?
-> Can i run my website together?
-> Best server pack? L2J? Custom?

:smiley-go

Thank you!

lol. well you need ram. so put the best. for upload rate the best again. you can run your website together. for cpu take a server machine. my server is in a normal pc and it hasn't any problem. my opinion is that the best is the ram and upload rate.

I don't know which data is the best. My team Oneo are building a new one with many adds. So if you want wait. Thank you.

member24, here is what you should start with:

3.0 GHz CPU, best would be an Intel Pentium 4
1 GB ECC REG RAM, best for the start, can always upgrade to more.
80 GB HDD, good enought for the start, if you want more players, SCSI Drives are recommended.
100Mbps (100Mbit) Is also good for a start, you can also do 10Mbps (10Mbit), you won't feel any diff. at the start.
Traffic is not so important, with 400+ players daily, I use about 500GB / Month transfer, + 100 GB For website.(that's what I use)


If you want a good host, try server4sale.com, they got just what you want, for a cheap prize!

DarkAngelGT, you are talking crap, you don't need maxed on everything for a small server!

It seems that you dont know anything about pcs.For cpu if he want to use the usual and not dual cores amd athlon 64 is better that intel pntium4.See the tests man. Here is things that recommended Dual core cpu(intel core duo) At least 2gb ram i recommend 4gb 250 gb hard disk And very good internet connection

1) RAM: Much as you can; Fastest as can be;
2) Processor: Xeon Dual-Core;
3) HardDisk: SATA2 / SCSI; Speed matters, size came after;
4) Redundant Power Supply;
5) Fastest uptream ISP plan you can have;
6) Avoid share the game server w/ web server; Also, you can think about 3 servers, running under a switch (not a hub, please...), hardware router, to handle the database, login server, game server, and web server.

The "why" part can't be replied in a "quick reply". PM if u need more details.

hugz!

lol... i agree to codewarrior at points: 1,3,4,5,6, but i have somthing to tell more:
1) If you have a little-medium server you DON'T need xeon... cause they are very expensive... you just need intel core 2 duo.
2) If you have much money.... you should think about spliting the login and gamer server:
Login: Intel pentium 4 2.6-3.6, 1-2 gb ram , 20-40gb hdd, internet good connection
Game: Intel core 2 duo 1.8-2.6 Ghz, 2-4 gb ram, 73 gb (WD Raptor ....you should choose this cause is the best performance HDD actually is... ;)), and a good internet connection too ;)

did you even read the test?

What it does say is the following:

AMD CPU's are generaly designed for gaming, but, AMD Opteron versions are made for benchworks, which means, server, but no high end.

Intel are generaly designed for images, photos, hard services, i.e mysql, java and so on, In common words: for those who which to do multiply tasks at once.

Now, which one is best ?

Compare Intel Pentium 4 3.0 GHz with Hyper Threading and 800 FSB, + 1 or 2 MB Cache, with an
AMD Athon CPU, from the same prize are, Intel will overgo AMD in all ways but gaming, and as Server's are not meant for gaming, Intel win this round.

Now tell me, which of us does not know anything about Computers?

For Ram, you don't need to have the best of best, 1 GB RAM, ECC REG DDR 400 MHz is a good choice, one of the good ones, but still not the best.
1 GB RAM, is good enought for around 100 Players, but that realy depends on what Operation System you do run, i.e Linux or Windows.

Windows will be slower, taking mer resources for the GUI (Grapichal User Interface), and is generaly not meant for servers.
Linux is a high performance OS, designed for Servers, with alot of updates and fixes on problems you may occur.

My personal choice is Linux Debian, Stable, easy, and no problems at all installing any kind of programs i.e mysql, java, phpmyadmin, apache and so on.

Also, you don't need any huge Hard Drive (HD) for a game server like L2j, 80 GB HDD is good enought, even for a server with 400 players.

You have different types of HD's, IDE, ATA, SATA, SATA2, & SCSI, you may also choose to have a Raid system, Raid 0, 1 or 5, depends on how many HD's you got, and what you want to do with it.
Best for a new server is ether an ATA or SATA drive, most competent Hosting Companies does use SATA, it's more trustworthy, more stable, and so on.

For fast Drives, I would go Raptor, or SCSI, as they will have atleast 10k RPM, and some does have 15k RPM.

Summary, Intel owns AMD at servers, but at Gaming, AMD is alot faster than Intel.
Also, You don't need any super Server for a new L2j Server.


PS. Flame on, I will continue to show you what a PC is :D

today (after some sleep and) after search for C2D prices and check some benchs, i agree w/ kotor21: C2D is the best cost/performance avaible for now, and u dun need a xeon to run a server w/ 1000+ players =)

thx kotor21!

yeah... but remember... cause the raid are very very fast but they broke very very easy if you don't manipulate them easy ;)/.... or if the server is in a zone with electric energy floating... (or something like that... ), or it goes down many times... so you MUST buy and UPS... ;)
if you want more informations look here: (it was in my bookmarks :p)


home i helped ya ;)... good luck!

A Raid 0 spilts data evenly across two or more disks with no parity information fore redundancy.

A Raid 1 creates an exact copy of a set of data on two or more disks.

So, two Sata II Drives in Raid 0 ain't faster than a SCSI Drive with 10k RPM, it's only for securing the Data, as it will be writen on two or more drives.

And kotor21, you are wrong, the Raid 0 or higher( 1, 2 ,3 ,4 ,5, 10) will not lower the capacity for the hardware, and also the duration for the HD's.

about the OS use Linux Debian and as a CP use Webmin in webmin u can change easy config files from apache2 mysql etc.

but note on debian dont install mysql with this command

Code:
apt-get install mysql-server mysql-common mysql-client

use this for mysql

Code:
apt-get install mysql-server-4.1 mysql-common-4.1 mysql-client-4.1

nille02, you should install mysql 5 instead of 4.1, as that one is outdated.

are you an expert?? he asks what he needs for no lag server. i told that if he put the best cpu the highest ram , highest HDD and highest upload speed his server will not have lag. and you are talking crap because you don't know if he wants a small server. lol. for a small server you can put everything you will not have any problem but if you have many ppls you will need a good server machine to keep the server with no lag.
