Citrix Printing slowdown

Experts,

I currently have a situation where Citrix printing is becoming slower and slower for my users.  It's a Win2K AD environment with a Citrix MF XPe farm.  Logging in seems just fine for users (using Wyse and Compaq thin terms).   We have an old DOS 16 bit application at our manufacturing facility that needs to print for the users.

Some users may take up to 6- 7 minutes for printing to start.  It doesn't seem consistent at this time.  Does anyone have some ideas on where to start with this issue?

Thank you

I know this is silly, but when was the last time the machine was defraged?

When was the last time the farm was rebooted?

I'm only saying that the cache could need a flushing... and after a while the swap file gets a little tired...

Thanks for your reply.  We did try that already.  What we have found out it is that the specific application is causing the processor to spike and slow the network down.  The programmer that originally worked on this application did confirm the printing issue for us.  Thanks

You found the answer yourself, you should request a refund of points... Sense I'm the only answer I have no problem with that. :)
