    I currently have my server running on these specs
    Athlon 635 4 Core 2.9ghz
    12GB DDR3 1333 Mhz
    30GB Kingston SSD

    Any idea how many people i should be able to host?

    What's your bandwidth? With that properly setup, you could do 100+ if you had a good enough uplink.

    And this is where I falter. I have 20-24 Mbps download, but only a measly .5mbps upload.

    you will be able to handle 5-10 people from what i have noticed from my 1mbps upload speed (i can get 10-15 ok)

    mindless728, I've already handled 10 people with no lag, just want to find out what my max is.

    with that much ram you are limited only by your internet connection.

    in the mean time, move your world folder to a ram disk.

    Looking at my network output, each player takes roughly 16-30k/sec (thats kilobytes). As long as your hardware isn't a bottleneck, this is a good rule of thumb to determine how many players your link can support.

    There's no way that could handle 100+. I'm almost positive that CPU would breakdown before that many people hit.

    .5mbit is horrible for hosting. I'm surprised you could get 10, I'd say maybe 4 max on .5mbit.


    I cannot stress this enough, do not host Minecraft on an SSD, you're wasting it's life and your money that you spent on it.

    Perhaps, but his uplink will limit it far before his CPU's become the bottleneck.
