File upload taking forever

Posted on 2006-04-25

We have an ASP upload script that was migrated to Windows Server 2003. The permissions appear to be set correctly because I can see my file being created on the Doc server. However, it's taking 9-10 minutes to complete for a VERY small file with one line of text. Can anyone steer me in the right direction on what settings need to be made to get this working smoothly?

    Can you do a basic windows copy of the file to the Server.  If yes I would say your script has a bug in it.

    Can you copy the file to other servers quickly.  If no to first and yes to second I would say the  file server is having a problem.

    I have seen this with network problems as well.  MTU size can cause this type of issue.  MTU is the size of packets as that pass through a router or computer.

    Can the MTU size be increased?

    Generally MTU should be set at 1500.

    Read the following article.

    Were you able to transfer it to other machines?
