    Dedicated Server specs

    Hello 476th !
    We (3rd-wing.net) have problems running our server properly with DCS. Lastly, we can not fly more than 45 minutes on it. I would like to know if you encounter this kind of problems and if not, what are the specifications of your dedicated server (hardware / OS version / hosting provider etc) if you don't mind.

    Thanks and happy flying !

    Hi toubib,

    No, no such problems here (most of the time). We've got a system we built running an i5-3570K CPU but the key thing we found helped with long term stability was RAM so we e have 32Gb in our DS box. It's running on a domestic internet connection.

    Hey Toubib, as Eddie is looking in to that for you, our GPU doesn't matter that much as we run with the 3D environment disabled on the DS. How long have you had these problems? Outside of LotATC, are you running any special mods? When you disconnect after ~45 mins, do you just reconnect, or does someone need to restart DCS as well before it can be seen in the multiplayer list?

    As Eddie said, memory is what's premium. That and a CPU that has very good single core performance.

    Also, is this a new problem? i.e. is the server new or did this recently started happening with a server that was historically stable?

    Hello Dojo,
    First of all, thanks to you both for your help. We have this problem for at least 2 weeks. From what I know, we do not run any mods apart LotATC and tacview. It is a DCS crash : everyone is ejected from the session and DCS has to be restarted.. We are running the latest DCS stable version (Caucasus). However, apart from that very annoying bug, the server works flawlessly without lags (which is why some of us thinks we can't do anything before ED's patch).

    You guys use any scripts on the server/mission?

    Providing CAS when you're all out of HUA!

    Hi Stuka ! Nope : only one trigger on the mission (and no script).
