Dedicated Server CPU Core Allocation

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I know this question has probably already been asked, but I just thought I'd ask it again here just to get a definitive answer.

When hosting a dedicated server from my own personal PC (CPU: i7-8700k), is it possible to force the dedicated server to use more than 1 core?

I have plenty of cores from which I can run the server, but it really loves to attempt to max out one core instead of utilizing any of the other cores/threads on my CPU. I understand that DST does not natively use more than a maximum of 1 core per shard, but I was wondering if there was a way to "force" the server to spread the load over multiple cores/threads.

Is this possible, or would DST need to be completely rewritten from the base code in order to accomplish this?

Thanks for any and all assistance!!

It does use more than one core, but most of the game is written in lua and the lua code is limited to a single thread of execution, therefore the speed of that one core is the limiting factor.
