I want to rent more powerful dedicated server for sake of Minecraft hosting.
Currently I own
Sandy Bridge i3 2130 2-Core 4-Threads 3.4+ GHz 64bits 8GB RAM (KS R-8G from Kimsufi).
It’s performance is very flat. Going over 100% of CPU usage simply means “lag”:
@ 25 players:
top –c = 100% ~ 120%
@ 50 players
top –c = 150% ~ 190%!

I want to hover up to 300 players and need advice what machine to order (prefably from OVH.co.uk).
I have eye on:
Sandy Bridge E Intel Xeon E5-1620 Intel Smart Cache: 10MB 3.6GHz 64 GB DDR3 ECC (EG 64G SSD from OVH)
Is it suitable?
Side question is why
top –c and
htop show 2 different values? Htop shows that cores/threads are balanced, but it seems they are not.
Second side question would be whre to ask is there a way to optimalise this process:
