Tweaking your Counter-Strike: Global Offensive server

Small tweaks like server name and server settings.

If the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive process is running then first kill it. When the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive process isn't running then proceed to step 4.

1.  SSH to the server
2.  screen -r
3.  quit
4.  CTRL + c

5.  cd ~/csgo/csgo/cfg/
6.  mv server.cfg server.bak
7.  wget
8.  chmod 775 server.cfg

	- Don't forget to edit the newly downloaded server.cfg to your own needs and settings

9.  cd ~/csgo/
10. ./srcds_run -game csgo -ip -usercon +game_mode 1 +game_type 0 +map de_dust2 -maxplayers_override 24 +sv_setsteamaccount <gslt>
11. After a few seconds and some stuff in your console you should see the following:

	Connection to Steam servers successful.
	VAC secure mode is activated.

12. The server is running, you can check this bij typing 'status', you should see the following:

	hostname: My Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Server
	version : 1569/8853 secure  [G:1:9438415]
	udp/ip  :  (public ip:
	os      :  Linux
	type    :  community dedicated
	map     : de_dust2
	players : 0 humans, 0 bots (24/0 max) (not hibernating)

	# userid name uniqueid connected ping loss state rate adr

13. CTRL a + d (detached)
14. Done! You now have a fully functional and customized Counter-Strike: Global Offensive server running without mods/scripts.

Install 1000 HZ kernel and achieve a 1000 FPS server

Back in the days you had to manually compile a kernel and set it to 1000 Hz, nowadays it's a lot easier to get this done.

I don't think this works on VPS, cause those CPU's are virtual & shared. So this probably only works on dedicated servers.

Before with normal kernel:

1.  grep 'CONFIG_HZ=' /boot/config-$(uname -r)


2.  sudo apt update
3.  sudo apt -y install linux-lowlatency
4.  sudo reboot

Afterwards with low latency kernel:

5.  grep 'CONFIG_HZ=' /boot/config-$(uname -r)


And check in-game in your (rcon) console as well to see the result:

        CPU   In    Out   Uptime  Users   FPS    Players
        9.00  0.00  0.00     949      1       900.05        0

To remove the low latency kernel and go back to the normal kernel use the following:

6.  sudo apt-get -y autoremove --purge linux-lowlatency
