Please
respond to
mohaa

I forgor to ask, the lower the maxrate, higher the lag? Does a 2200 rate
work good for cable clients?

Regards
André

For each server? I have 2.2 Mbits of bandwidth and 10 servers of 12
players.
How do I calculate this? For each server or using all players (120) as if
was one big server?

Regards
André

Don't you guys read the guides @ mohadmin.com?

------------------------------------------------------
How to set Max rate

The sv_maxrate determines the amount of bandwidth your server uses for each
client. To determine the sv_maxrate, use this formula:
# of clients * sv_maxrate * 8(for 8bits) = upload speed

or

Upload speed / ( # of clients * 8 ) = sv_maxrate

For example, my cable modem downloads at 2mbit/sec. However, it uploads at
270kbps/sec. So, if I want to run a server that will host 16 clients I need
to set my sv_maxrate to 2100 and my formula will look like this:
16 * 2100 * 8 = 268kbps

I would then open the console and type in the following command:
set sv_maxrate "2100"

In the end, you're trying to get the formula to equal your upload
capabilities. This can be done by altering either the max clients or the
sv_maxrate values.
Follow this formula and your server should run a little better.

Keep in mind that your upload
speed ( the speed in which you send data back to the internet ) can be quit
a
bit slower then you upload speed ( the speed in which you receive data from
the
internet)

You can use one of many speed test
site's on the internet.  I would recommend DSLreports.
Not only can you test your upload
speed but there are many other test you can run. They even have some guides
to
help you improve your upload and download speeds.
Check them out at http://www.dslreports.com/stest
