How to debug a Minecraft networking issue

Recommendations for debugging a Minecraft networking issue

If you are experiencing a network issue, and performance reports such as timings or spark reports provide no insights, please collect the following information and submit a support ticket.

Note: it is important to prepare in advance for use of these tools. You will need the following:

WinMTR: Download
Command Prompt or PowerShell (Start > Run > cmd or powershell > Enter)
Identify your server IP and port: Check your HostEZ welcome e-mail for the server IP

Collect the outputs of the following information and submit it to us through the HostEZ client portal.

  1. Run a traceroute to your server IP


    Replace with your server IP

  2. Open WinMTR and enter your server IP, then press Start. Let the MTR run for about 3 minutes. Share the output with HostEZ Support.

  3. Ping your server 100 times and capture the output in a screenshot or, copy and paste from Command Prompt/PowerShell

    ping -n 100

    Replace with your server IP

  4. Collect all log files from your server, and any debug or error messages from your game within the affected time frame. Open a ticket with HostEZ support. Provide the date, time and symptoms of the issue in the ticket. Our team will investigate the issue and respond within your SLA timeframe.
