I rented a server for minecraft last year. Pre installed Debian 5 on Intel Xeon 3430 8Gb Ram.
Our server grew past last months and even upgrading to 16Gb Ram didnt help with the performance issues.
I decided to install gentoo from scratch this time via Dell remote console, but there a some questions open...
Our 5 maps are about 10GB big, (3K files @35mb) plus the livemapHD about 80GB (750K files @ 70kb).
There is also a running Lighttpd webserver with php4/mysql5.
Our last harddisk died right before christmas....

Which filesystem is the fastest for that huge amount of files?
Can bfs/bfq patchset improve performance? And if which configuration?
Should I use Icedtea7 or precompiled binarys from Oracles site?
Experimental CFLAGS? -march=core2 -mtune=core2 -O2 -pipe -floop-block -floop-interchange -floop-strip-mine -fgraphite-identity -floop-parallelize-all -ftree-parallelize-loops=4 -fopenmp

Any other exotic ideas?

(sorry for my bad english Iam an oldie :oops: )

I run mine on BFS (default zen-sources settings), ext4, icedtea7, and craftbukkit compiled from java-overlay. I've had no problems on that server and it only runs a single-core Atom; I've seen binary installs on equivalent hardware where the CPU is always pegged even with no users online.
