just stick to dedicated servers guys
it's not worth messing with virtual servers, especially not virtual private servers

you can get a cheap PDS with less ram and cpu for the same price as a VPS, shoutcast or sc_trans really doesn't eat that much, but it really needs reliable resources

one theory I came up reading this thread is that the issue may be dynamic memory allocation. As you're sharing your resources with other people, their info may get in cells between your information, causing longer processing times as well as longer reading / writing times. I'm not sure how virtual software deals with this but it might be an issue.

Here's an image for reference, this is a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz with 8GB of RAM, four shoutcasts and transcoders running at a constant, steady 128kbps.
