    Lag Test 3,000 TNT / With and Without Ptweaks (356MB server)



    Ptweaks is plugin to optimize your server, by changing chunk loading algorithms. Ptweaks is also huge on ram reduction, if you run a low ram server, or just want the improvements; Ptweaks is for you. Ptweaks also stops crashing and lag from TNT, and enables complex methods to improve your server in almost every aspect. Running a 16GB or 512MB Server, Ptweaks is for you.


    We ran 7 large plugins on a small 256MB server without PTweaks. The server couldn't load chunks, there was noticeable amounts of chat and block lag. The server was all around unplayable. We enabled Ptweaks and within minutes of being on, the chat and block lag we're gone. Chunk's loaded normal as they would on a 3GB Dedicated server.


    • Massively reduces needless disc usage
    • Loads Chunks faster
    • Priorities Chunk's in the direction your facing, To ensure smooth game play
    • Keep chunk's loaded at a configured amount
    • Chunks with higher activity such as a spawn, stay loaded to massively reduce Ram usage
    • Limits Mobs and Animals to a configured amount
    • Disable Mobs and Animals
    • Check Current Ram being used
    • Config file's for each part of the plugin
    • Dupe TNT Packet's, So TNT will no longer cause any server side lag
    • Add's highly advanced Chunk Algorithms
    Feature Description:

    AutoSave: Instead of writing every chunk to the disc every 2 seconds. This changes it to a custom time that you want, Default is 30m. This saves the server from writing about 9KBps to the disc (7 writes, 2 reads per chunk, on a 3 person server). As well as saves about 2 calls to deflate every 2 seconds. (per chunk)
    Chunk Persistance:
    This is a fully custom feature, that can be turned off. It will change how long chunks stay loaded. Chunks with lots of visitors will stay loaded longer, and not have to render again and again. This adding lots of performance to your server. This works for people just joining on that chunk or someone walking into it, So a spawn point works great with this. You can change how long they stay loaded, and how fast they unload. Default works for most though. This will no longer need extra ram.
    Monster Limiter:
    This is another fully custom feature. You can change it to a certain amount of Mobs spawn, or if they spawn at all. You can turn Mobs off and animals on, or vice versa.You can set a minimum mob limit and a maximum, That the server wont go below or above. Fixing some lag that can happen from mobs spawning or not spawning at all.
    When the server starts to save, It slows down the processes to normal speed, Causing the save to be instant.
    Ram Saver:
    Based on how the Ptweaks edit chunk loading, Ram drastically goes down. With the added features, such as slowing down disc usage. You can see up to a 80% Improvement
    Chunks in front of you get a higher priority too load then the ones to your side and back. Making smoother game play, and instant chunk loading.
    TNT Edit:
    This makes TNT only really have to load once, then it is saved until the TNT packet stops. Causing TNT cause no lag at all, Under 10k TNT, which it will start to give off lag. TNT packets are also saved, after the first and just duplicated so you dont get spammed with them, and causing lag.
    1. Download Ptweaks
    2. Stop your server
    3. Put Ptweaks.jar in your Plugins directory
    4. Start Your Server
    5. Edit Config's to your liking or leave default
    6. Relaod
    7. Done!

    Really like this plugin! Good job really helps out on my 30 slot server with everyone exploding tnt.

    Nice name :)
    TNT shouldn't be an issue again

    Thanks! TNT isn't an issue at all! No lag what so ever!
    Quick question, do you have any websites or anything you would recommend to learn Java? I really want to start coding plugins and help out the community.
  6. Offline


    I started years ago :confused:
    There are threads here on the bukkit forums that will give great websites.
    I can't think of any though.

    Alright thanks :D

    How it deals with multi worlds?
  9. Offline


    As of right now, you all worlds will have the same settings.
  10. Offline


    Add Multi Core CPU Support using Java 7. If you can. Only then I think I'll recommend this plugin.
  11. Offline


    If your server is running multiple cores this will work. It don't need added support there.

    Ok. :)

  14. I disagree, this thread is for discussing the issues related to a plugin, arguments about broken features or implementations (thanks for the input @bergerkiller ), are what this place is for.

    Good Plugin!

    Just tested this plugin on my 500+ server. The lag/RAM usage got WORSE with it enable.

  17. Offline


    It wasn't a bug report or any issues.
    We were talking about the features and what the plugin does.

    It must have been conflicting with something else.
    Or your not truthful :p

    Ill try to get some big updates out asap.

    Updated Version 1.5.1 fixed

    That is a before/after with default settings... To lazy to go into the server to check....

    I'll test this tonight on my ~60 player, ~15plugins server. We're constantly having problems and keep increasing the ram... I think we're at 8gb now and still have lag.
  22. Offline


    I have to say I was skeptical on this one, but so far after 12 hours I have actually noticed a difference. I have charts and graphs of my pre-Ptweaks server... I will compare some new post-Ptweaks stuff once I have enough info compiled... Initial look is about 30-35% less RAM usage, with 1-2% more CPU Usage. I will have to wait for more data to make an accurate comparison though, either way thanks for the hard work!!
  23. Offline


    Are there any features between Ptweaks 1.5.1 and NoLagg 1.27 that I should disable so they don't conflict with each other? I notice they both do something for chunk unloading and monster limiting, so I am concerned.
  24. Offline


    Hey, can you get that source up real soon?
  25. Ok nice plugin. NOT. After installing this whe can not log in in ower server. After deleting it. Same problem. Thanks alout.
  26. Offline


    I said you wont see results instantly.
    It takes a little extra ram at first when it gets started. It can take up to around an hour before real results appear.
    I say this in the main thread, Everyone who keeps it in over night see a big improvement.
    So far it is working great for everyone.. but one (excluding you, since you did your test wrong)

    This will help you :)

    Cool, That is the average expected result.
    Until a further update the small CPU going up can't be helped, But it says that in the main thread :_)

    Over a thousand servers are running it perfectly and getting the big results like they should.
    I promise its not this plugin. The fact that you removed it and still get the errors proves it.
    Be more mature about the subject and give more info if you want help. Make sure your running the correct CB, and your server is set up correctly.

    What was the results, I am really curious

    Here we go again... :)

    keeping it short: how are you going to reduce RAM usage? I bet people are interested in the pros and cons of your solution, because every solution has pros and cons. (Please do answer, it improves credibility)
