We are through with our experiment with running the DODS servers with the Mani plugin disabled.
Our experience in-game, and data from the game server performance gauge during play, show there is not a significant difference in the load on the server. With the plugin, the server runs at about 34% server capacity when both servers are full. Without the plugin, the server runs at about 30%. We're not near the point of overloading the server, at least as far as the server's CPU capacity is concerned.
The plugin is re-enabled. We have our map voting and other server admin tools back up and running.
