Server crashing since last update

Topic created · 2 Posts · 88 Views
  • Since the last update (r2385-r2462) our server crashes regularly.



    • Daily server crash (I've only been able to watch it happen once, but I'm assuming it goes like this every time it happens)
      • Process CPU usage goes up to over 30% (usually 0.2-1% idle/under 10% when full)
      • Server shows multiple hitch warning 500-1000ms
      • Lags, users ping increases
      • Server crashes
        • maybe on map rotation, not 100% sure about that
    • Rare random CPU spikes to over 20%


    • Started with update r2385-r2462
      • Server was running fine before & no changes were made except for updating pluto
    • Seems to only happen when people are playing as our private server doesn't crash nearly as often
    • T6 server is running fine
    • Removing all unnecessary scripts didn't help (see gsc script below for script in use)
    • Reinstalling pluto didn't help (see update bat below for installation command)
    • Nothing special in windows event log
    • Host
      • Windows Server 2016 (Fully updated)
        • winver
      • 4 dedicated CPU cores (AMD EPYC 7452)
      • 20GB RAM
      • 1Gbit uplink
      • 160GB NVMe storage
      • KVM
    • Additionally we are running IW4MAdmin
      • Since the update the server console is spammed with status by IW4MAdmin
        • Not an issue, but wanted to mention it
      • Neither latest nor older version fix the crashing issue


    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    • Nothing special in windows event log

    Somehow i managed to overlook the errors in the windows event log.
    It's always the same error, same offset, same exception yadda yadda
