SBS2003 Extremely Slow for no reason
Posted on 2006-06-13
At my company we only have one server with everything running on it (Exchange Cached mode, RIS, DATA, DHCP, DNS, SQL, etc). Lately the server has been running very, very slow.
Clients can't check their emails, some can't even login.
The server itself is also very slow. I have to wait like 2 minutes open the START menu (yeah it's THAT slow).
I have checked the system monitor and there are no processes hogging up the CPU. Tho CPU Usage is between 20 - 60%. Is there a hidden process which could cause this? My collegue told me there was no virus nor spyware on the server.
Server hardware is
Dual 2,4Ghx Xeon
2Gb of RAM
140 SCSI hard drives in RAID.
I think this is it.
Thanks in advance
EDIT: Sometimes the server is at it's normal speed (for like 5 minutes) and then it will go back to the Escargo like speeds... ah this is so frustrating.
