Running 2x pug servers currently on my dedicated machine, specs listed:

CPU: 4 Core Intel Xeon L5630 - 2.13Ghz

RAM: 4 GB

RAID Policy: Raid 1

HDD Bay 1: 146GB SAS 2.5"

HDD Bay 2: 146GB SAS 2.5"

Network Bandwidth: 500GB

Operating System: CentOS 7

# Config Options #
> pingboost 3
> fps_max 1200
> sys_ticrate 1200

# Server Rates #
> sv_maxrate 25000
> sv_minrate 15000
> sv_maxupdaterate 101
> sv_minupdaterate 61


Ideally how many more servers could I run ontop of the current 2? Anyone have personal recommendations

The general rule is one server per core.
So 4 servers should be fine.

Would 4gb ram be suffice for 4 servers though? I'm not sure what the ram usage is on a HLDS server with 15 people (max) in the server

The ram usage depends on your plugins but shouldn't exceed 1GB per server so 4GB for 4 servers should be fine.

You can run 4 pug servers easily with those specs, usually only heavily moded servers take much ram which is not the case for you...

4? Since he is running pub server, usually 12 slots, he can run double that, i used to have 4 servers 32 slots with a similar specs, you can run multiple instance of the servers using diferent configs, so wont take much space, the only way to be sure about ram, its to keep an eye on your ram, disable plugins you don't need, keep it clean

honestly, HLDS is pretty low tech

your bandwidth is probably a more relevant bottleneck than your server's specs (I'm pretty sure mine is, anyway)
