    posted a message on HOW-TO: Run a server on Amazon EC2
    So I just set myself up with EC2. I made a mini instance, and it's humming along nicely for one player. However, when I get 3 players concurrently it starts to really hang.

    top

    Indicates that I am maxing my cpu, though only using 52.4% memory.

    Everything is vanilla, I'm launching minecraft with the following command:
    screen -S smp java -Xmx512M -Xms512M - jar minecraft_server.jar nogui 


    Is this the best performance I'm likely to see out of this? Has anyone else run a minecraft server on a micro instance successfully? Is there a way to temporary upgrade the server's resources when demand is higher?
