Minecraft multiplayer - lagging

Welcome,
I am new to the Linux world, but have encountered a problem that irritates me.

When playing Minecraft in single player mode, the game runs around 2000-5000 fps, but after entering the multiplayer server, the game does not exceed 100 fps.

Does anyone know why this is happening? Below I am inserting a link to a video that presents the problem in more detail.

Link to the video: Linux Garuda - problem (Minecraft multiplayer) - YouTube

That's a problem with the Minecraft server, ask the server admin for it.

Also, to be honest it's pointless to have Minecraft at more than 60 FPS.

I doubt this is a server side problem because as I move away from the players the frames suddenly go up to around 500-1000fps.

In my opinion, it makes sense to play Minecraft at over 60 fps, because the gameplay is completely different than at lower fps.

What hardware do you have? You missed the request for information contained in the topic template.

So - it's dependent on multiplayer aspects? Have you checked things like CPU use in this specific situation that could be bottlenecking your FPS?

How can you tell, given your monitor is refreshing at 60Hz?

Oh, yeah, my mistake...
CPU: Intel Core i5-8400
GPU: GIGABYTE GTX 1060 3GB
RAM: 16 GB (2666 mHz)
Motherboard: ASUS B360-PLUS

During low frames in multiplayer, the CPU runs at 30-50%, which is normal.

As for the monitor, I have 144 Hz, not 60.

Actually this means:

Personally, I still believe this is a server side problem, if the performance is good in single player.
Or maybe somewhere in the involved packages (much more unlikely).
But I really don't see it as a Garuda problem.

Sorry, but I was not at the computer, that's why I wrote my specification in this way.

The first thing that comes to mind would be to try connecting to a few other servers besides that one, and see what kind of performance you observe.

I have already tried to connect to different servers and still the same :confused:

I see you have only an Ethernet card, no WiFi.
Have you tried replacing your network cable?
It would not be the first time I see randomly disconnecting Ethernet connections due to cabling issues. Maybe this could have an unnoticeable effect on general usability but bad side effects on Minecraft.
