Released in 2004, Garry’s Mod is a sandbox physics game based off of the modified Sourcegame engine. Developed by Garry Newman, Garry’s Mod was originally a modification of Half
Life 2, but later developed into a standalone game.

Garry's Mod Server Requirements
CPU and bandwidth are the most important considerations in running a dedicated gaming server for Garry’s Mod. The game isn’t very disk or RAM intensive, but the more popular your server is, the more CPU and bandwidth processes you are going to want to allocate. A heavily populated GMod server can use upwards of 2TB of bandwidth a month, but this will vary based on setup and usage needs. At least a 100Mbps port speed is recommended for effective network traffic management. A Garry's Mod dedicated server would need the minimum processing power of 2GHz or higher. The server software can be installed on Linux or Windows. Ports 27015-27016 should be open on your server firewall for complete network access to the dedicated game server.
