I have recently purchased a machine to run an online game server. I put the machine together and have installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu Server 10.10. I have noticed that the game server produces a massive amount of lag despite being more than capable of running the server application.
I have been trying to track down the problem all day and now believe it might be something to do with the network connection as when I connect to the server using SSH, on the local network, I get a large dollop of lag before the password field appears. Connecting to the old server on the same network displays the prompt instantly.
My hardware is as follows:
Core i5 2500 3.3GHz Socket 1155 Asus P8P67 R3 Socket 1155 4GB DDR3 1333MHz 500GB 3.5" SAT-III Hard Drive
I use Windows primarily and would ordinarily look for updated drivers if this happened there but I don't really know where to start to solve this problem on Linux.
Any help would be most appreciated.
