What causes more server lag?

Post by Bainidhe » August 8th, 2018, 8:44 pm

I want to minimize server lag when re-building my guardian farm. Is it more costly to the server to build a minecart w/hopper system of 60 carts, each on their own straight track 60 blocks long, where they bounce back and forth depositing their contents on one end of the track via a hopper under the track, or is it better to cover the floor in hoppers (3,600 total)? The carts would be in constant motion, but the hoppers would mostly be idle. Which would be better for the server?

The server should handle this fine, no? I guess I'm missing something.

I have no doubt it can handle both. I just know server performance has been an issue in the past and want to make sure whatever design I use doesn't making things worse. Of course, this could be a six of one, half a dozen of the other situation. I was just curious if any of the admins would know if one is better than the other.

I think the carts would probably cause less lag. Hoppers are one of the biggest causes of server lag, so less of them is better.
That being said, the server can handle a lot (there were just a few people that took things to extremes in the old world which started to slow it down)

I thought hoppers has been an issue. I'll use the carts again. Thanks Clowner.
