Lotus Notes and MetaFrame XP
Posted on 2002-07-10
Please forgive me for not asking a purely Notes question here, but I need some help! A colleague of mine has encountered an issue when using MetaFrame XP FR1 and Lotus Notes 5.08.
The MetaFrame XP FR1 servers have the following spec : IBM x330, Dual PIII 1.13GHz, 2GB RAM, 2x36GB disk (hardware mirrored), Gigabit Ethernet, 2x100MB Ethernet (1 unused, 1 teamed with Gigabit card).
The problem is as follows. Normally, Notes takes approximately 20 seconds to load for each user. This is true up until the 14th user, at which point Notes suddenly takes 5 minutes to load. This always applies to only the 14th user, the 13th is always OK.
However, when the problem occurs, the machine shows no signs of being heavily utilised. CPU is at 15-20%, memory usage is fairly high (but this would be expected with 13 other users connected), and Task Manager shows the usual Notes 'exe' files trying to execute but getting nowhere.
Has anyone else encountered this problem, or got any suggestions?
