Thank you everybody for your responses, I really appreciate it.
This is a machine I'm leasing- it is a colo facility, and was built by the
provider. I have full root on the box... are there commands that I could use

commands to do that too?
The CPU itself is spiking when the player count goes above 30.. and TOP does
not show any spikes in any other processes (Don't know if disk access/network
access are bundled into the aplication CPU usage or not)
Right now it seems better, 56% cpu at 29 people...
Maybe I should just try 34 people again, maybe the new CPU just needed time to
