I rent a 1.6 server, and I was recommended to set pingboost to 3 and ticrate to 10 000.
This took them a few weeks to add to launch options, and now that they have I actually read about it, which I regret not doing earlier.

The server is running on linux, here are some information from the provider: (roughly translated)

Our servers are directly connected via a 1 Gbps port against Admax Core at 40Gbit, which is then connected to Portlane Backbone with over 200Gbps capacity together with a redundant connection to Glesys.

I have no idea what this means and if its good or not..
When I use these settings (pingboost 3 and ticrate 10000)
I have around 8000 fps, but its unstable going from 6000 to 8000.

Can someone explain to me, because I don't understand why you would want so much fps when the game can only handle 1000 fps?

Is it because it goes down when players join?

What settings should I use? should I turn up the ticrate when server is full to make sure it goes as high as possible without going over 1000?

I live in Sweden and everyone has atleast 100mbit/s here.

Current settings:
rate 100000
maxupdaterate 100000
minupdaterate 80000
pingboost 3
fps_max 100 (still shows more when i type stats)
sys_ticrate 10000

Your settings are applied for high quality servers. If the server can really handle it(not struggling), then leave it as it is, since you pay da money just for aim da smooth gameplay minupdaterate 80k holymoly xP

cl_updaterate can't go higher than 101 (or 102, I don't remember). You should probably just fix it to 100.

Firstly, if the hardware of the dedicated server your server is hosted on is pretty good, which is most GSP's out there you should have no problem with hosting a 1000FPS server.

There is not much point in going over 1000FPS its just a waste and theres no real benifit to doing so.

Just use the following rate settings without pingboost.
// Set Rates
rate 100000
sv_maxrate 100000
sv_minrate 2500
sv_maxupdaterate 102
sv_minupdaterate 66
sv_maxcmdrate 105
sv_mincmdrate 66

And tell your players to
1. Goto there video card setting control panel and change Vertical Sync to "Always Off" or "Force off"
2. Set there rates in there client console to:

rate 100000
cl_updaterate 102
cl_cmdrate 105
fps_max 99
gl_vsync 0
ex_interp 0.01

If they have a very good video card

cl_updaterate 102
cl_cmdrate 105
fps_max 1000
fps_override 1
developer 1
gl_vsync 0
ex_interp 0.01

These don't exist. There is no such concept in HLDS.

These don't exist. There is cl_updaterate and cl_cmdrate for client rates.

Just curious, how much do you pay for the server's rent?
