32 Slot MTA - Can my box handle it?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of ordering a dedicated server in Texas to host a 32 player MTA server on. It has the following specs:

· AMD 2000+

· 256 MB DDR RAM

· 40 GB Hard Drive

· 200 GB Traffic

· 100Mbps Connection

· Fedora Core 5 OS

Do you think it could handle 32 players in the server all at once, or is the hardware/bandwidth expectations for that kind of usage higher?

Thanks for any help,

Connection is fine, but you may have probalems running 32 players on that hardware.

K, thanks for the help. I'm probably going to go ahead and get it for a month and see what it can handle.

Mmm, I disagree - the hardware should be fine but if the server is going to be popular, 200gb traffic isn't enough

hmm, I'll see what happens when i order it.

Well, my MTA:SA server is using 5.3mbit a second (quite a lot) right now whilst full with 32 players.. that's about 160Kb/s per player.

If this was constant then it'd use around 1.6TB of bandwidth a month ..which is a lot more than 200gb. I'm not trying to put you off ordering your server or anything - just warning you. :-#

Thanks for the warning, now I have an idea what the MTA server uses. I guess I'll have to pay some extra money for more bandwidth if i get this server. I might just go to a game server company I've ordered from in the past and ask them to host me an MTA server, they are very reasonable.
