Server crashing, overload, not draining memory?

  1. Hey my server keeps crashing after a few minutes and before that i get spammed with this line in my terminal:

    [WARNING] Can't keep up! Did the system time change, or is the server overloaded?

    and the lag just increases until it kicks me out and end and restart the server. Something i have noticed however is that i don't think the memory consumed by this is draining. i watched it using Activity Monitor and every time i logged in it increased the memory consumed by a bit and it did not drain when i logged out. Any ideas how to fix this or what the real problem is?

    I'm not sure but I have both Ptweaks and NoLagg on my server, and after a while when the server uses alot of RAM, Ptweaks or NoLagg magically sets the ram usage to 400 megabytes.

    Also, you could try adding more RAM, and sequentially restart the server every few hours.
    To allocate more RAM, all you have to do is to set the -Xmx and -Xms parameteres like below:

    -Xmx0G -Xms0G

    The 0 represents the number of Gigabytes, and the G represents Gigabytes.
    You could also use M as in Megabytes by using the reference table below:

    0.25 GB = 256 MB
    0.5 GB = 512 MB
    0.75 GB = 768 MB
    1 GB = 1024 MB
    1.5 GB = 1536 MB ?
    2 GB = 2048 MB
    3 GB = 3072 MB
    4 GB = 4096 MB
    6 GB = 6144 MB
    8 GB = 8192 MB

    And so on.
    You could also do the calculation yourself.

    Moved to correct forum.

    I, personally, wouldn't suggest NoLagg. It sounds like you have an issue with a plugin taking up too many resources, so throwing anther plugin at the issue won't likely help.
