I don't know what they have changed, but our server has been lagging for 2 weeks now, and tonight the rubber banding is about as extreme as it gets.

We haven't changed anything or adding anything in the past month or more, so I have to assume its the game itself.

Things have always been running fine until the last 2 weeks.

Have you opened a support request so we can look at the machine CPU usage..etc?

I had another customer mention problems like this recently, and he was running multiple 3rd-party admin tools, 3rd-party PB tools, and also had automatic screenshots enabled with a high frequency (every 5-10 minutes). If any of those apply to you, I strongly recommend troubleshooting by disabling that feature temporarily, as all of these can potentially cause performance problems. I'd be particularly concerned with the possibility of a PB-related problem, since I know that they came out with a recent release (whereas the game itself hasn't). (Auto PB screenshots also just always cause lag, in every game.)

We have been running auto ss since the release and never had lag.
I had turned it off and running a ss grabber now based on player stats, so it will only be triggered on suspicious people.

PB has updated recently and could be broken in some ways (it is also possible that the performance problems are due to other PB client functions, as we've seen that before, too).

Did this make a difference for you?

One think you might want to consider is the plugin we talked about that takes the ss after a specific k/d is reached. Lets say that the k/d ratio is set at 4.0 , after that k/d is reached the plugin will ask for another ss after every kill that persons gets. It could be very possible that could be causing the lag.

could not edit the previous post here is a possible cause

per the plugin notes

Quote:
PunkBuster puts restrictions on how often you can request player screenshots. (Max of 3 screenshots in 10 minutes, Requests must be at least 30 seconds apart). Because of this restriction, you are only guaranteed that the first screenshot will succeed in any 10 minute period. The remaining screenshots requests in that 10 minute period may not succeed.


Like i mentioned once the plugin starts issuing the pb_sv_getss command it continues issue that command after every kill. It could be causing "flooding" by issuing the command to often.

I know i have lagged our servers by issuing unban commands to fast.

Actually I resolved that issue by changing the frequency of the checks from 20 secs to 60 secs.

And before when auto SS was on, it was taking 32 or more SS every 2-5 mins with default pb setting, and we had no lag.

Now it takes 1 SS every 1 min per person that triggers the check of kdr>4.
Which last night over 6 hr period was only a total of 57 SS.

So I can't blame the SS since there are far fewer taken now then before.

It's disappointing to see such a serious performance regression in PB. I hope that they made other changes at the same time that actually help them catch more cheaters.

Actually seem to be more effort by the anti-cheat groups with md5 checks.
Usually see a monthly update, and sometimes more.
