Hi there everybody,

I have an win 2k server that has an oracle database running on it. For for some reson the database is running slow.

When I look at the windows server Task manager, system idle process is 4% and the Total CPU usage is 5%. Where is the other 91% going?

Can someone direct me to where I might be able to tell?

Mant thanks

Eddy

Also, you can sort the running processes list by clicking on the header.  In this case it would be beneficial to click on the "CPU" header to see all the processes using up cpu time at the top.
