I hope this is the place to put this type of concern.  Please let me know if it is not. : )

My main property I am working on, at the moment, lags terribly.  I've researched how to reduce all my computer settings to help with lag.  I've also travelled to other areas to test my lag and found I don't lag anywhere else nearly as badly, including mining in the outer reaches.  I was surrounded by 25+ bunnies at Rangasp's place and could run about gleefully among them without lag.  My entity count is no where near what was there or at Ravenshaugh's cow pen (50-60) and I could move about normally amongst the cows (not as fun as bunnies btw).  

Ravenshaugh came to my "lag property" and he had no problems while I was having problems.  I understand we are on different computers but in conversations, Rangasp said this has happened to him before and perhaps it had something to do with the server?  Perhaps a server cache not being cleared issue?

lag property: -14053 66 -3692

Any advice or help would be appreciated.  Meanwhile, there are bunnies to play with : )

Thank you!

i was having this same issue in the ocean in Arda at x:-21100 z:18000. Just huge ammounts of never ending lagg, to fix it i tried many diferent settings but nothing fixed it, even a clean install of minecraft and java with no mods or anything. Other players in the same area werent lagging.

at first i was thinking my internet was the problem, but it wasnt, i could surf the web without problems

i havent experienced this problem in any other area of the map thought

As you mentioned, it is tough to tell what is going on when not using the same system. Furthermore, there are so many urban myths about what causes lags and how to fix it, that it almost seems impossible to track down the cause.

I'm not passing the buck, its just a fact that 99.9% of lag issues are client/connection issues; the primary source therein being the rendering pipeline and/or sound engine. If it were server-based lag, it would be experienced by everyone visiting the area.The only type of server-lag that I could fathom is that one or more chunks currently are undergoing a ton of physics updates due to flowing lava/water. However, you would have noticed that right from the start and it would have stopped once all was properly dispersed.

I visited your location with a Vanilla client and two other Optifine configured clients - one using vanilla TP and the other Invictus TP (64-bit). Rendering was smooth and server-responsiveness was quick, which pretty much points the issue toward your client.

The most common problems are lag are:

  • Anti-virus software/firewalls. Try turning off AV before starting up Minecraft and visit the problem location. Should it be the AV software, there should be ways to configure an exception for Minecraft.
  • Texture Packs - Revert back to the Vanilla texture pack. Make sure to restart Minecraft after changing the texture pack.
  • Old Video drivers - Go to Options -> Video Settings. Change MIP Levels to 0. Restart game. If this improves your FPS then you have older video card drivers. Visit your manufacturer for updates.

Note, if you are running a modded version of Minecraft, I would strongly suggest that you perform above tests with a virgin Vanilla version.

Thank you for the suggestions Frelling and I agree that the issues are indeed 99.9% user caused.  I tried all your suggestions and googled a bunch more and in the end, just used a different laptop.  The following information is just for anyone else who may have similar issues.  Thanks for the speedy reply Frelling!

 

I've never run anything other than the vanilla texture pack so that one was easy.  My anti-virus software was not an issue either.  I ran a program called "can you run it" and upon review of my system I met the minimum but not the recommended system requirementsYell.  I'm sure there was more I could do (shut off features etc) but I strong-armed my husband into giving me his laptop for minecraft use and it seems to be working swimmingly.Laugh

There are several things you can try to lessen the rendering burden on your computer until you can "acquire" a new one Laugh

In Options->Video Settings

  • Graphics: Fast
  • Smooth Lighting: Minimum or Off
  • Clouds: OFF
  • Render Distance: Lower it by 2 or more
  • Particles: Minimal

Also, under Options -> Snooper Settings... Allow Snooper: OFF - this "monitoring" can get in the ways of things.
