[WARNING] Can't keep up! Did the system time change, or is the server overloaded?
2010-12-21 09:13:50

I keep getting this message when I try to log into a server I'm hosting. My friend says it has to do with the memory allocation, but I can't figure out how to throw it a bone and up the memory allocation. I know my computer can do it, I just don't know how.  Can somebody help please?

hi i had this exact problem.

hi i had this exact problem. The way I did it was, I deleted all my minecraft server beta files and started fresh again by redownloading the Minecraft_exe from minecraft.net. This time, I didn't do anything to the files except edit the port to 25565. Also I port forwarded after this. Now it doesn't give me the error. I didnt't have to do anything to the server time or memory. Make sure you don't put anyone in Ops.txt

Stopping this doesn't affect

Stopping this doesn't affect your server. I run 100 slot server and even when no ones on it does this. This will most likely be fixed when notch finds a way for minecraft to hog less ram.

Same Issues

 I've had this problem on both SMP, and Bukkit servers. It only shows up when no ones online, 12pm-8am-ish. I run with about 20 people.

 It hasn't affected anything, ever. I tried fixing it at first by deleting and downloading the servers again. Waste of time, I add memory to Java, also a waste of time.

 I also think it will be fixed later by Notch, and so far hasn't hurt anything.

Hope this added post helps.
