Server slowdowns

My OS9.2 Appleshare server allows 90 workstations to read and write data to a reading application.  I am running 768 MB on my server(G4).  However, the server experiences overload causing data transaction slowdowns.  What can I do? Is there anyway I can distribute memory to deal with this slowdown?

How are the users connecting to the Server? What I'm wondering is, is it a Server issue or a network issue? Could be your switch / hub is playing up?

Why use ASIP on a G4 when you could run OS X? Much better server solution.

Thank you very much for your help. This question is resolved.  Multiple users had been using the same application over a server causing data slowdowns.  The solution I needed was to install the application on each workstation and save the data to a location on the server.  The end result was a faster running application.

Cool, glad you worked it out. Weed has a point though - you should think about upgrading your server platform soon as ASIP is rather obsolete now. It's likely to become more and more difficult to support it in the future.

Thanks for the suggestion.  Suppose I do upgrade to OS X, I do not have a budget upgrade each workstation.  Would it be possible to setup a smooth running server with connections from G3s running OS 9.1 and 9.2 until I am given a budget?

Yes, OS 9 machines will connect to OS X just fine.
