Hi, I'm new to hosting servers, and though my company has been successful, I'm noticing my servers performance getting worst, and was seeking some advice. My servers are Dual Opteron 246's, and Dual Xeon 2.8/3.0, all with 2gb of memory or more. I also run Redhat Distributions on all of them
Firstly, my boxes are becoming very full, I have been spiking all the way to 90% cpu usage on some boxes, and it is causing very bad experiences for my clients. I offer game server hosting, and customers are extremely picky on the performance of the server. What would you guys suggest that I try to keep my cpu usage at to avoid any performance problems.
Also it seems like over time, my servers cpu usage gets a little higher. Should I be rebooting my server from time to time? Should I be doing any other things to keep it running good. Any other suggestions are much appreciated.
Thank You, Brad
