Constant Server Lag?? with 60+ players

Looking for some help with one of my server when i hit around 55-60 people server starts to lag

Server is already using a -16 tickrate

Hosting with NFO Servers

Some of my Config
fps_max 0
sv_maxrate 0
sv_minrate 100000
sv_maxupdaterate 99
sv_maxcmdrate 99
sv_timeout 120
sv_allowupload 0
sv_allowdownload 1
sv_parallel_packentities 0
sv_parallel_sendsnapshot 0
net_queued_packet_thread 1
net_splitpacket_maxrate 100000

In net_graph 1 Lerp is at a constant yellow and players start skipping and it can be very annoying server is using around 40-50 ADDONS nothing to big all around 10-15MB ive seen servers run better with the amount of addons i have.

Is there any extra command or something to help this? thanks for your time.

Turn that cmd/update rate down.
also provide start up launch parameters and obviously take out your authkey and workshop collection key

-game garrysmod +maxplayers 70 -debug -console -nocrashdialog -norestart +host_timer_spin_ms 0 +r_hunkalloclightmaps 0 -tickrate 16

What should they be lower too the cmd/update?

try -tickrate 33

also change your config to the appropriate tickrate

of course servers don’t magically run well anyway with that amount of players in the one server

People said running a higher tickrate such as 33 is worse for a server?

Tickrate directly correlates with framerate, but also maxes out CPU power too…too low of tickrate will make your server appear laggy

basically here’s a rule of thumb I’ve always gone by and this is pretty old.

At 20 tick rate doors start lagging and anything below 15 is just general arse.
p much 33/66 is common for GMod servers and most servers run well on 33/66.

if i put it too a 33tickrate what should my


be at?


Alright i set my server to those configs and tickrate hopefully the lag will not be as bad as it was

if anyone has more suggestions on the a config for server with 60+ players please let me know

You could try oub’s addon that checks what exactly is taking up the most resources on your server.

What is oub’s addon?

The issue is described in the title of the thread

There can be an underlying problem that oub’s addon could detect.
