I'm running a dedicated server with a couple of game servers running on 4 different IP addresses. The most network-heavy server times out a few times during peak hours and all other communication (FTP/SSH) through the same IP also briefly times out. Other servers using other IPs are fine and unaffected as well as FTP/SSH using other IPs. The server is running Debian 6.
What causes this, and is there anything I can do?
EDIT: After changing host, we found out that the problem was actually with the game server itself and seems like other symptoms were just pure coincidences or perhaps the game server affecting the CPU and networking. We haven't yet found out how to fix it but we are working on it. It seems to be related to bugs with the game server itself so I'll be off to their bug-tracker.
