Server Health

Recommended Posts

Hello Squaddies!


OWI has added in the ability to see server health from the server browser. This will help players find a server that is performing well that they want to join. Currently it shows live server performance. In the browser, you will see a Red, Yellow, or Green icon which relates to how well the server is performing.


We will be enabling this feature remotely shortly, so that server owners can prepare their servers hardware for the Alpha 8 release. We hope this will also help server owners monitor their servers for performance issues. This is also a very useful feature for the end user, as they don't have to join as many servers, looking for one with good performance.


In addition to the server browser feature, you can now see the performance icon by looking at the scoreboard in game. This will let you know if the server is performing bad, or if it is your client.


Servers in the Yellow category may see issues along the lines of vehicle slowness, users rubber banding and VOIP issues. Licensed servers should remain in the Green. Servers in the Red, will be pretty much unplayable. There may be times when it may go into the red or yellow but the majority of a full server should remain in the green. It is also important to remember that performance can lower as a round progresses due to the increase of placed deployables, as will as the amount of firefights and players in close proximity increasing. Servers not up to the performance standards may lose their license until the performance issues can be resolved.




If you have any questions feel free to post here or in our discord!


Happy Fragging!
