My Minecraft server is lagging during each save.
Ubuntu Desktop 9.04 (planning on disabling desktop sometime, it's just easier to set up sometimes)
2.4 GHZ P4
1.5 GB RAM, Dual Channel'd
Some AGP Video card, I think it's a 6200.
I decided to try and put the server on flash media (read/write faster) that has helped I think, but I'm not sure. Java is -15 Nice (High Priority), and is using a lot of CPU. How can I check if the USB ports are USB 2.0?
Edit: I'm going to try less, faster, ram.
Nothing to do with my connection speed tbh. If I talk through console with "say" it doesn't come up untill the lag's over, a few seconds later. It has got much better when I lowered the map size. Right now it's 512x512x128, I'd really like to be able to run 512x512x256 though. I didn't know about ionice, trying it but it didn't give any response so I'm not sure if it's working...
