Hello everybody,

I would like to introduce a new tool I have written, it is called XiRates.
With XiRates you can calculate the recommended rates for your servers (Note: There is currently no cap implemented, so depending on your machine it may show values that are not possible in HLDS to reach, but still valid to use).
As an extra, which might make some of you happy, it calculates the recommended amount of slots your machine can host (Calculates from CPU, RAM and Internet Connection).

Always take the lowest value from that.

How calculations are done:

sv_maxrate = ((Speed in MBit/s * 0.95 * 125) * 125) / Slots you want to host
Recommended Slots based on Connection: (Speed in MBit/s * 0.95 * 125) / 41
Recommended Slots based on RAM: RAM in MB * 0.95 / 40
Recommended Slots based on CPU (1 Core): CPU Speed in MHz * 0.95 / 87
Recommanded Slots based on CPU (2+ Core): (CPU Speed in MHz * 0.95 / 87) * (Amount of Cores * 3.36)

Note to experts: Please review those calculations and tell me if there is something to fix.
Sources for those calculations are Dreks Calculator, Valve's Support Page and some other HLDS forum.

FAQ

Q: Why is Source disabled?
A: Because I did not implement any calculations for that.

Q: Why you did not make a website for that?
A: Because I did want to.

Q: Are you sure all those values are correct?
A: Hell no.

Q: The tool showed me three slot recommendations and I did not read the thread, which one to choose?
A: The one with the lowest number.

what is meaning of having more cores? it can take only 1 core anyway

sv_minrate 0
sv_maxrate 231934
sv_minupdaterate 4
sv_maxupdaterate 773

for example those are unreal, why use that much?

Code:
MetroToolTip1.SetToolTip(MetroLabel6, "Your Upload Speed in MBit/s. 10 MBit/s = 1 MB / s")
Isn't 1MB actually 8MBit?

Too bad I can't test it, I would like, but I am using LUbuntu. Good job anyway.
