Fleets

Note: The content on this page pertains to Game Server Hosting (Multiplay) available on the Unity Dashboard. If you’re using Game Server Hosting (Clanforge), see the Game Server Hosting (Clanforge) documentation.

A fleet is a collection of servers that host a game or application in specific regionsClosedA region is a geographical locations in which a fleet can host servers. Each fleet can have access to one or more regions and each region within a fleet has independent scaling settings.. Once your fleet is online, you can start making allocations via your matchmakerClosedA multiplayer networking feature in games that groups players into a game session.. You can have one or more fleets, and each fleet has a view where you can view the fleet details, the linked build configurations, the scaling settings, and the fleet analytics.

Each fleet has the following associated information:

Fleet analytics

Each fleet has a collection of analytic data that Game Server Hosting collects from the implemented server query protocol, such as simultaneous users, usage, crashes, and major events. The Unity Dashboard displays each data type as a chart or graph, and you can view the fleet data at a global or regional level.

The fleet analytic data includes:

Concurrent users

The concurrent users graph displays the number of live concurrent playersClosedConcurrently connected users (CCU) is the number of players simultaneously connected to a fleet, region, or server at a given point in time. within the fleet’s servers.

User capacity

The user capacity graph shows the correlation between the total number of user slots and the number of allocated user slots.

Server density

Server density is the number of players connected to allocated servers. This number is tracked across time and displayed on a graph on the fleet analytics view.

Server allocations

Server allocations are the number of allocated servers within the fleet at a given time.

Users per build configuration

Users per build configuration is the number of concurrent usersClosedConcurrently connected users (CCU) is the number of players simultaneously connected to a fleet, region, or server at a given point in time. connected to a game session running a specific build configuration. The graph shows this number for each build configuration across time.

Crashes

Crashes happen when a server within the fleet exits unexpectedly or when a server stops sending query data. The crashes graph displays the number of server crashes within the fleet over time.

Major events

Major events include servers restarting and servers crashing. Most server events, apart from crashes, are triggered by performing a server action. The major events graph displays the number of major events.
