Tips to Operating Game Server

Internet Connection

Some games require a super fast connection. If your connection is slow, the server will cause lags giving you a lot of headache. Ideally, we suggest that you go for at least 20 Mbps connection. This should be the upload speed, not download. In other words, you should do your homework in order to know how much upload speed you need.

Player Slots

Some servers are not setup properly. At times, the server operator don’t have any idea about the number of players that will use the machine. For instance, Minecraft makes use of the RAM of your computer for allocation to each user. Therefore, your machine should have a lot of RAM so that hundreds of users can connect without any problem. However, make sure that you don’t allocate all of memory to users. The server also needs some RAM to work properly.

Up Time of the Servers

The up time of the server is based on one thing: do you need the server to be live at all times? In other words, if you have a small server and you need it to be online for you and your friends, then you don’t have to keep it on all the time. On the other hand, if you are going to make your server live for public, make sure it gives an up time of 99.99%. if your server goes offline frequently, you may end up losing a lot of users. You don’t know when a user will connect to your server to play their desired game. After a couple of repeated attempts, the users will leave you to never come back again.

Required operators

Some servers don’t need a lot of operators. Actually, this decision depends upon the owner. For a public server, you should have an operator no matter what. However, if you have a private server to manage, you don’t necessarily have to hire an operator. Actually, public servers at a higher risk of being hacked or destroyed. Therefore, you have to have someone in order to take care of the machines. Actually, it is also dependent upon the simulator or game that you want to play.

 

Know Game Servers Types

Listen server

The process of listen servers is the same as a game client. In other words, they act like dedicated servers. However, the difference is that they have to “talk to” the remote players through the residential internet of the hosting game player. The problem is that not all residential internet connections are fast enough to support the game’s upload requirements, especially if the game is a very popular one. Normally, the limit is 16 players. Another problem is that the performance also goes down due to too much load on the server, as the server also has to generate an output image.

Dedicated server

As the name suggests, dedicated servers tend to trigger game worlds and don’t support direct outputs or inputs. However, they do support the required input and output for required administration. Moreover, the players have to login to the server with different client apps to play the game.

The biggest benefit of dedicated servers is that they are suitable for hosting in high-end data centers. Aside from this, these servers offer lots of performance and reliability benefits. Remote hosting also gets rid of the low-latency benefits the low-latency benefit that would be held by a player that logs into the server through the local network or same machine.

But the problem is that dedicated servers cost a great deal of money to operate. At times, the developers of the game bear the costs. In some cases, the cost is born by clan groups. No matter what the case is, the public depends upon third parties. For this reason, the majority of games that make use of dedicated servers also offer listen server support.

Peer-to-Peer

In the peer-to-peer model, you have no server. Instead, each “peer” gets the input streams of every player and decides on the results itself. Generally, peer-to-peer is considered outdated for today’s action games. However, peer-to-peer servers is a good choice for real-time strategy games because of its suitability for video games with tons of tokens and fewer players. Rather than sending the positions of thousands of troops, what happens is that the game sends one transmission that a thousand soldiers have been chosen.

The disadvantage of these servers is that you will find it hard to synchronize all peers. With time, small differences between the peers may get worse. Moreover, it is hard to support fresh players during the game.
