Hi I’m new to using Balena, I have set up a minecraft server that runs through balena and everything works, however the cpu of the pi is always at over 95% (I use the rasberry pi 4 8gb) Is there a way that I can use 2 pi’s so that they share the workload to power the server or is it made to only run 1 pi per server?
not quite sure, but running a server distributed over different devices is usually a complex problem and it is highly unlikely that the minecraft server or the balena implementation supports that feature. Apparently the balena solution is based on the paper server ( https://papermc.io/ ) and I can find no hint in the docs that they support a distributed implementation. Looking for ‘distributed minecraft server’ I actually found an implementation that supports a distributed setup: https://github.com/dotnetGame/MineCase .
The balena server has a little chapter on modifying the server so you might want to look into that : https://github.com/AlexProgrammerDE/balena-minecraft-server#custom-server-optional-eyeglasses
Thanks for you help, I really appreciate it
