Hi guys,
I'm organizing an event with more than 100 online players and 2 hours race in the Ring.

Have anyone ever done something similiar?
What things i've to consider to avoid problems?

The bandwith and local graphics machine configuration are not a problem.

Thanks a lot!

The main issue will probably be the "monster" server required for this

You will need to have a huge amount of memory and a "nice" processor too.

Fast hard disk drives should also be considered (even if it's only required 1 or 2 times during the race)
On our old server, we had issues with 40 drivers during the session switch because it tooks to long time to load every player and some of them where disconencted by timeout.

Well... yesterday was the DAY!

Imposible to get the server stable with the 60th player and more, the server started to drop people out. The limit with the server stabilized was 53 players.

We will do 2 races with 50 player in everyone.

Thanks for all.

That's what I expected. Anyway, many thanks for the feedback.

Could you please let us know the server hardware configuration you used ?


Sure!

Server is running W2003Server Web Edition R2
Intel Xeon 3075 2.66GHz
4GB RAM
HD 700GB SAS

DSL Line 100MB

I think the problem, maybe are the number of different client connectios to manage. I don't know if the problem is with Rfactor or the Historics Mod.
I was monitoring the performance and the resources were enough, so with the DSL.
The server was only running the rfactordedicated in that moment.

I repeat that with 53 player all was perfect. If anytime anyone have the answer to get posible races with more than 60 drivers, please, let me know.

Thank again for this fantastic mod.
