One of the biggest concerns for server owners is lag. Lag can be caused from a variety of ways, whether it’s from resources you add to your server or the hardware your server runs on, however if you host with Apex hardware shouldn’t be an issue. There are certain Spigot plugins that can help reduce lag caused by resources or players. ClearLagg is one of the most common plugins for any type of Minecraft server. Essentially what it does is allows you to remove any trouble entities that may exist on your server. Perhaps someone dropped thousands of items in a single chunk, causing your server to lag. By clearing dropped entities, ClearLagg ensures that your server stays operating smoothly.

You can find your configuration file by heading to FTP File Access, the plugins folder, the Citizens folder, and clicking edit to the right of config.yml.
Most things in the config file are disabled by default and any line with a “#” in front of it is also disabled.
One of the most common configuration changes made is the broadcast message. If you would like to change the messages that are broadcast or disable them you’ll need to scroll down to the “auto-removal” portion of the config doc where you’ll find the “broadcast-message” and the “warnings” section, both of which can be changed to your liking, make sure that you follow the given format.
Another part in the configuration that you may want to modify is the entities that are removed when lag is cleared. In the configuration, locate the ‘auto-removal:’ section. Below it, you will see some items listed and set to either true or false. You can enable and disable which entities you want removed when lag clears. For example, if you wanted to stop minecarts from being removed you would find `minecart: true` and set it to false.
You can find an in-depth walkthrough of the config here.
Clearlagg is one of the most essential plugins for Minecraft Servers, having it helps significantly with lag reduction which is a key part to owning a public server. This plugin is nice because there is not much configuration you will have to do for it, but if you wanted to get configure it more detailed, that is possible as well. Don’t forget that plugins will not work unless your server is running Craftbukkit, Spigot, or Paper.
