This is my first post here so please go easy on me
I recently just acquired a Dell Power Edge R415 server from work and have re-purposed it for some server hosting.
The VM Host / Physical Server;
x2 AMD Operteron 4386 (16 Cores)
32GB ECC RAM
x4 320GB 15k SAS HDD in a RAID 0 config using H700 controller that I just upgraded from the S300
The VM the minecraft server is running on is called Cortana;
This VM is running the lightest version of windows possible called windows 10 ameliorated
The VM has been given x2 cores, 4GB of RAM, and 120GB HDD Space
I am using Hyper-V Manager as my hypervisor.
My minecraft server seems to be struggling a little bit (looking at the screenshots). I have not changed any values within the Minecraft server config. My baseline is the 2 cores at 4gb of RAM with default configs settings for the server. I could go on a wild goose chase giving the server more ram or increasing the ram in the server config but I have decided to come to you guys for recommendations.
Along with that I totally understand the R415 was released in 2011 and the CPUs are mediocre at best. (Buttttt 've also seen people host stuff on was worse equipment, sheittt I hosted a server from a 4gb sony viao laptop from 2009 lmao)
What do you guys recommend? I hope I've provided enough information.
Please look at the image attachments to show more details.
Thank you guys so much and I look forward to your responses.
