Tough crowd here.  Didn't realize a simple reboot request would cause the tea party to rebel.   Snarkiness, name calling geeez.  Relax guys.   Too much caffeine or what?

WHO GIVES A FUCK WHAT YOUR "SECONDARY" QUESTION IS!?! Jesus fucknuts, you really ARE this stupid! The whole point of you even discussing rebooting the server at all is because you think somehow the server is to blame for your lag issues, or have you forgotten that little factoid, you brainless dick inhaler? And it's been proven to you that *GASP!* Nope! It's not the server with the problem, it's (for the 900th time) YOUR ISP.

Relax guys.

Ha! Fuck you very much! YOU relax! Go back and re-read the thread in it's entirety. It started off plenty relaxed... well other than how you made 6 different threads in 6 different places saying the same fucking thing in each thread like the fucking stubborn brainless retard that you apparently are... but that one slid past rather unnoticed. Everyone was respectful and polite to you in on the first page or two of this thread. Everyone offered you advice and help. It wasn't until you started chirping "reboot the server, it's the server, whats the harm" over and over and over again like an autistic parrot with a fucking stroke that other members of the boards including myself chose to treat you like the fucking asshole that you are. YOU relax, jackass.

I was asked to provide screenshot.  I did.    I provided tr route.  I respond directly to what is asked.

Frankly I've found it so difficult to get info from you I've stopped trying to help you diagnose your network issues.

I still haven't seen the 15 minute WinMTR trace I asked for (twice!) on page 2.

And the screenshot you finally posted after several requests shows about 5 seconds worth of data, barely enough to get a sense of the frequency of lag spikes vs. packetloss.

In any case, if there's one fact that needs to permeate your cranium, it's that if some players are experiencing smooth gameplay and a flat netgraph at the same time that yours looks choppy, the problem is not on the server.

BTW, when I wrote in my first post, "I don't mind restarting the vanilla/dm servers for the hell of it, as this is simple enough to do," I was referring to restarting the Q2 servers. There's no way in hell I'm rebooting fragbait.tastyspleen.net (aka the Linux host system.)

So basically you can either continue troubleshooting your network problem via the approaches above (WinMTR, more complete netgraph screenshot)... or you can keep posting requests for an unnecessary server reboot that's not going to happen.

Wow.   That's quite a potty mouth.    Again you miss the point. I understand that you don't think a reboot will help. What I don't understand is why you think it is such a big deal to reboot anyway just in the  maybe minor off chance it could be of some minuscule good effect.  You act like rebooting is like passing a kidney stone.   I never said it IS the server for sure.   You should reAd the thread.   Clearly you just want to entertain friends on the board rather than provide anything productive.    Nice job.   We are proud of you.   

Now chill out bro.   Too much caffeine clearly.

Thanks for restarting the q2 servers (if you did).   Haven't run winmtr yet.  Thought the netgrPh was sufficient instead.    Not asking for Linux host system reboot.   Not sure if there are others experiencing smooth play when I'm not.

Of course, not one person in their sarcastic responses has pointed out what HARM there could be to try a reboot to see what that does.  If it does nothing -- so what.  At least you tried.

i did, you can't read

the only time you ever SHOULD reboot a server is if you can't even get into the console or are completely out of swap space

I miss the point? Wrong. YOU miss the point. It's not that I don't "think" a reboot will, it's that I "KNOW" a reboot won't help. Several people have told you this several times. YOU miss the point, you feeb.

You don't know unless you've been on when I have lag etc and see whether all others have lag etc at the same time.  Even quads says that would mean a server issue.   It is PRESUMED otherwise based on anecdotal reports not on actual scientific testing.  No one knows 100% for sure either way.   But most assume (perhaps correctly) it is the internet.  Okay wise guy?

You don't know unless you've been on when I have lag etc and see whether all others have lag etc at the same time.  Even quads says that would mean a server issue.

That's more like the inversion of what I said. My position is that if you're lagging and other players aren't, then we have ruled out a server issue.

But if all players are lagging simultaneously, that still doesn't "mean a server issue". In terms of likelihood, it would mean there's probably a network router issue in SoftLayer's network close enough to the server to affect everyone.

But when one factors in your data about the problem occurring only during specific times of day, that makes it even more likely to be a network problem, and--unless we're certain it's affecting all players--it also suggests the problem is more likely to be closer to you than to the server.


It is PRESUMED otherwise based on anecdotal reports not on actual scientific testing.  No one knows 100% for sure either way.

Why don't you run the goddamned WinMTR trace for 15 minutes while you're experiencing lag, and find out?

However that expression goes about, "I'd rather light a candle than curse the darkness" -- it's the opposite of what you're doing in this thread.
