I’m running a minecraft server, and it’s CPU bound. Sadly, modded minecraft (and probably regular minecraft) is single core dependent. The load on the box is regularly less than 2, but it’ll be 100% on one of those cores.
All my other VMs don’t really stress the CPUs, and I don’t see performance problems with them, and it’s entirely possible that I’m really hyperoptimizing around it. It might be best to build an inexpensive standalone box that has hella CPU power to run the minecraft server.
Yeah I’m on v2 CPUs, I’m currently running: (I bought a v1 cpu for hella cheap to make sure I could update them when I built the boxes like 6 months ago now?)
In the VM server: dual 2.8 GHz Ten-Core E5-2680 v2
in the NAS: dual E5-2630LV2 2.40GHZ 6CORE
I was hoping to find one that included QuickSync, but that doesn’t seem to exist in the LGA2011 set.
These fit that category, dual 8cores at hella fast. Really good passmark scores, but I guess the GA-7PESH2 only does v2 cpus?
Seems as tho, I’ve done pretty good for what I need it to do. Do we have a Minecraft Server thread? heh
