Question [1.18.2] Low Server TPS


New member

We recently updated our Server.Pro server to Paper 1.18.2 (from Paper 1.18.1) and have been receiving low server tps since. As an uneducated player in anything debug-related, I was hoping someone would be able to shed some light on what might be causing the tps drop.

In 1.18.1, 7 people would still yield 20 tps.
In 1.18.2, 3 people will start to lower tps.
Ignore anything Worldedit or AsyncWorldEdit (AWE), unless it's causing majority lag.
Multiple custom datapacks & command block chains are running.
Version Output
This server is running Paper version git-Paper-345 (MC: 1.18.2) (Implementing API version 1.18.2-R0.1-SNAPSHOT) (Git: a90092e)

Try creating a new paper server with 100% stock settings and getting 3 people on it.
If that still has the same problem it's likely the host. If it doesn't you know it's a misconfiguration.

In the latter case try adding back your server settings ie: properties, start flags paper & spigot.yml etc, and see if the issue is still there.
If it isn't continue adding things such as worlds and then move onto plugins.

I have a suspicion it is to do with Vanilla Scheduled tasks in your world ie: command blocks, scripts etc
