I have been hearing from some players of connection issues and lag spikes on the CS:S server over the past couple of weeks. I have requested that MPUK look in to the matter and they in turn have requested some network trace results taken at the time of the lag/ping issues. Here is what they need and how to do it In order to try and determine the point at which your data is being affected, you will need to run a network trace to our server. Please complete the following instructions: ** Windows Users ** ******************* - Download WinMTR - http://www.fileplay.net/file/12395/winmtr-v09 - Unzip the file and run the WinMTR.exe file inside it - Set the host as your server's IP address and hit 'Start' - Continue to play with this running the in background for at least 20 minutes - When you have finished, stop the trace and export the results to TEXT Please note that it will only help if you run this during a period where you experience ping issues. If you do not, then the results will be meaningless and we wont be able to help. Be handy if a few of you can do this over the next week or so and either post results in this thread or send them to me via private message. Obviously the more results we can submit to MPUK the more chance of finding the problem if there is one at all. Thanks in advance for anyone that can help with this.
