Server Bench


I proudly present to you the Server Benchmark v019!
The Server Bench is a simple mission for server admins to compare performance of different servers and headless client.
You could also use this mission to test out the effects of various AI improvement mods on the server-side frame rate.

In this mission some 'greenback' units are defending a hill on Altis from an attack from both the NATO and CSAT forces.
The outcome of the mission seems to vary a lot on the frame rate of the server. From my observations the greenbacks
seem to survive a lot longer when the server frame rate is lower.

This behavior seems to make sense to me as in theory bullets slow down if the server fps is lower than 30.
'time' variable will be updating slower than real-life time.
Assuming bullets take time to reach a target they should slow down.

- X Ending stats copied to the clipboard in the end
- X Dumps the ending stats into the server's report file
- X Headless Client Support (* Only supports 1 (one) Headless Client *)
- X Parameters for different several settings
- X AI is spawned "in the briefing screen"
- X Spectator script by Cyrokrypto to check out the firefight
- X Vanilla units on Altis
- X Uses Platinum Patrol by ComfyBlanket for Spawning AI

Installation / Usage:
Extract the .pbo file(s) to your Steam/SteamApps/common/ArmA 3/MPMissions folder.

1. Run the mission on your server
2. Set the parameters
3. Be sure to enable Headless Client's parameter if running HC!
4. Wait until benchmarking ends or spectate the battle
5. Look at the stats in the ending screen, paste the stats from clipboard or access the stats from the server logs (* uses diag_log, which creates a line in the report file *)

The stats are located in the ending screen, found by clicking on the highlighted arrow.

If you find any bugs, have any suggestions or problems with this mission please be sure to contact me via private message.
