I’m having a strange problem with one of our IIS6 servers – it is dead slow delivering images to the browser.
I have a very simple static HTML page, with a couple of images. (60kb all in). Server is a P4, 1GB RAM, Windows 2003 Server, .NET 1.1
From the machine, I open the page via the filesystem (i.e. C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\sccstat
ic.htm). Instantanious (browser caching turned off), as expected.
Again from machine, open same page via IIS6 (i.e. http://localhost/sccstatic.htm
). Text loads instantaneously. But the images really trickle; 10 seconds in total; each image loading one at a time.
This can’t be right! (Same page on different server, instantaneous). Something must be configured incorrectly!
However, I’m not even sure where to start looking for the problem. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
