Hey Everyone.

I have been doing quite a bit of testing with this issue, and so everyone is aware I host Altis Life server. We have been plagued with these crashes. On average from 10 minutes to an hour at best.

I have done quite abit of research into what has been happening and One thing stands out, Windows.

As such I wanted to confirm my findings by setting up a server hosted under linux. So I purchased a VPS with Ubuntu pre-installed and installed my server on that. And the results were shocking to say the least.

Not one crash at all. Desync just as you'd expect from a low grade VPS server but that server survived without a crash for upto 7 hours where it was restarted normally.

This issue has been around since late July. Not sure why but there was evidence of this issue back then. So Bohemia Interactive this has something to do with the way ARMA is trying to store data to memory under a Windows Based environment.

Also anyone experiencing this issue. grab a VPS server with what you afford and or use HyperV to run ARMA under Ubuntu or other linux based OS

@stargatefreak: the problems of the server crashes months ago were caused by physix now we have different cause...

7 hours of testing isnt enough... i had it running for 2 days without a crash and then it crashed 3 times a day... so we cant tell a specific runtime when it crashes... its absolute random

Oh 7 hours is enough.

As I have stated. I had this crashing my server every 10 minutes to 45 minutes, 1 hour tops constantly. My server couldn't survive any longer than that.

The server has now been online without it a crash for 2 days now with nothing different other than running under Ubuntu.

i have tested the 1.54 performance v7 files yet
the server still crashes... although the reason has changed

i added the logs in the

Update to everyone still having issues.

Yes we are still crashing, this is because BI hasn't fixed their Windows Binaries.

I have now been running my server under Ubuntu and I have not had one crash.

Anyone having this problem please can someone please second my results.

changing the whole server from windows to linux just for arma3 is no solution...

also you cant compare arma on windows with arma on linux...
no one doubts that the update has fucked it up... no need to say that 100 times again...

@Gagi2 that is not what I am suggesting.

Keep everything the way it is. However get a VPS running Ubuntu and follow the instructions in the wiki about installing ARMA 3 under linux.

This is not a solution, but an effective workaround.

Do not expect anything out of Bohemia Interactive until mid to late January at the earliest. This will not be an easy thing to fix so it could be months until we see a full fix
