Rylo Posted March 8, 2015 Share Posted March 8, 2015 I am experiencing network lag times whenever connected to my dedicated server, located on the same LAN. I feel the culprit may be the 5400 RPM used laptop hard drive I have put in the server. The server is a 2012 Hyper-V, with a VM running Ubuntu Server 14.04 with DST on it. Now keep in mind this server also runs a lightweight Ubiquiti Unifi Wireless Controller on Ubuntu 14.10 Desktop and PLEX on Linux MINT. It has 2 Xeon 5520s and I have given the DST server 4 threads of the 16 (Basically a Dual Core 2.26Ghz with Hyperthreading). It has 2 x Gigabit NICs and right now the DST Server has its own. Now if the other servers are pretty much idle I get the same results. I think it may be due to the fact that I put a 500GB 5400RPM used laptop hard drive in there that houses all of this. I plan on upgrading to an SSD and SSHD (2 x 2.5" hard drive slots only). And I feel this is my bottleneck in the network performance maybe. Any thoughts as to some other options that may be causing this lag? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
