I'm posting this to find out if anyone else is experiencing this problem. I ran a server, originally, from my dedicated server and it was limited to 32 players, when it hit 26 players it crashed. I restarted it, it got to 26 players and crashed again. I then limited to 26 players, it filled up and crashed. I now limited it to 24, as soon as it hits 24 players it crashes. The problem seems to be that on the server becoming full it just ends. I now run a variety of servers all from a different dedicated server, they also have exactly the same problem. Upon hitting the top limit for players they just "die":
Does it consistantly die as soon as you hit 24 players?
I notice my servers crash a lot after awhile if I've got a lot of ports in FIN_WAIT1 status and not clearing.
The player number seems to be irrelevant, it's the fact it's full. I originally had it at 32, as soon as it hit 32 it crashed so I assumed it was too many players for my server to handle, then I moved it to 26 and it happened again, once again I assumed it was too much to handle, now it's 24 and I'm assuming it isn't the player number, because when the limit was 26, 24 players could play fine without a crash.
The only thing that seems to cause it is how full the server is, no other servers have crashed.
