High Performance Config

Why use sm_cvar to set a server cvar rather than just setting the cvar in the config like the others?

I know I am a few months late to this question, but I would like to answer it anyway. There are "hidden" ConVars that cannot be changed directly (prints out an "unknown command" error if attempted).

 

Using sm_cvar bypasses the hidden flag (FCVAR_HIDDEN). 

 

In this config, net_maxcleartime is a hidden ConVar. Therefore, we had to use sm_cvar to change it.

 

P.S. I still plan on adding documentation to this performance config and I believe I've found other settings to improve server performance.


Thanks!

I've added the net_splitpacket_maxrate CVar to the config since this is very useful for reducing choke for non-CS:GO game servers (mostly when there are bandwidth spikes such as going through an area portal).

 

Thanks.
