@Leo65 Server FPS drop can be for a number of reasons. Your rpt looks normal for the most part and probably won't reflect any real issue to cause a FPS drop. Something to keep in mind is the mod Exile Occupation will in most cases spawn/create AI regardless of the total maximum AI that are supposed to be on the server at one time. Alot of the occupation features can be turned down or disabled. For instance the trader transport can be turned off or the amount of vehicle AI. Use infiSTAR to check your total AI counts by utilizing the function "Show Server Information". 

This is only a tip of the iceburg when it comes to FPS issues. Long story short monitor your server's FPS using infiSTAR anything lower than 20 FPS is usually not good.

Thanks for the reply but it's really strange that fps drop from 46 to 7 with no one in server... must be some reason for that.

Indeed it is, try it with method of elimination, disable occupation first - monitor sFPS. Disable DMS, monitor sFPS. 

 

You already have 130 active AI not sure if the DMS once are counted into that too - so yeh, while 130 ai shouldn't break the fps that drastically - i would defo give it a go and see what exactly causing it.

Maybe it's not even your ArmA server but something else on your system which eats CPU. Take a look at Task Manager and see if something weird is going on
