Arma 3 server file request amount issue (disc read)
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic


Hello there,

the disk usage from the arma3server.exe has an high amount of requests to the map_altis.pbo, and the map itself is requested very often.

The file itself is just 175mb big, and over the time, reading it again and again it causes alot of traffic.

Would it be possible to cache the file, so that the server reads it once, and if he need the pbo again he can use it from the prepared cache ?

The file requests could be a big issue in regard to the client and server performace. {F26588}
