I have recently set up a minecraft server on a 2GB RAM droplet.
I have assigned the server 1950MB of ram and also added swap. (The server is not running on root, but on a separate user with sudo privileges.)
However, quite frequently the whole server shuts down because it can’t keep up.
[Server thread/WARN]: Can't keep up! Is the server overloaded? Running 61557ms or 1231 ticks behind
To my understanding it can’t process the calculations and gets behind, but the CPU usage seems fine when I looked the chart.
I don’t really know why this happens, does anyone have a solution for this, or know why this is happening?
