I usually get a warning when the server starts running 3-4 sec behind and I had to kill most of the livestock in order to reduce the lag, but I'm curious if there is a server command to check how many ticks/ms behind is the server?



Unfortunately there is no way to check your ticks per second in vanilla minecraft. Running /debug start followed by /debug stop after a few seconds will create a debug log file with time stamps. This is fairly inaccurate so your best bet would be with a spigot or bukkit server. On one of those servers you can use the command /tps to see all sorts of different stats about the ticks per second.

Best of luck!

  • Thanks for the answer! I don't know anything about bukkit or spigot, is it possible to upgrade my server to any of them? Dec 9 '15 at 17:51
  • @NikolayDyankov Certainly, just head over to spigotmc.org/wiki/buildtools and follow the instructions on creating a server jar. From there you can just run it like a normal minecraft server
