Default Minor Packet Loss Issue

I'm running a few servers on CentOS and a couple of the regular players are experiencing minor PL, myself included. Generally it hovers between 1-5 PL, which is almost unnoticeable in terms of gameplay, but still annoying. I was wondering if there were any setting in the ini or the server itself that could help improve this. Our tickrate is around 60, but seems to happen regardless. We have full access to the box.

Thanks.

AFAIK we aren't running any virtual servers/users whatever.

U r not alone. I have been working with gameservers for almost a month now, only seems to b effecting 2k4, not our 99 stuff, i have unfortunately tried almost everything i can think of, gameservers says its not on their end, something is defiantly going on, i only have 1 idea i havent tried, which is a problem with file(s), but if ur having the same issue i doubt it will fix it, but will know for sure in the next week at the most. I have had the server in 3 different locations, St.Louis, Chicago and NY/NJ, with 2 or 3 different boxes for each. I would like to ask u some simple questions like who r u running it from if not ur own box (if its CentOS i apologize in advance as i dont know what that is, altho my guess is an operating system of some kind ), where is the servers locations and what gametype as well as style (normal weapons, instagib, ect.), maybe with both of us sharing info we can get this thing fixed

Well a pug just started, you're welcome to spectate.

ut2004://50.31.113.138:7777
or
ut2004://50.31.113.138:1337

pw:pug

We never have more than 10, but usually 10.

We've actually deleted most of the non DM or CTF maps. Not that maps would affect the performance anyway.

It's in chicago. There is no way a common file is affecting it. I'm thinking it has something to do with the network setup.

How many IP addresses do you have? I'd suggst for protection reasons you have one IP as the root IP and gameservers on additionals. That way any ddos on the gameservers IP all your have to do is disable the virtual interface and your server remains accessible and you won't incur any traffic.

If you are with gameservers I'd suggest you ditch them and go dedi with a host that owns their network. Nlayer are very good. OVH are pretty good too and have a datacenter in USA.
