I have a Windows 2000 Server w/ latest patches.  This is a server and client software application issue
There is a client station program that communications with its server application and when that occurs the CPU on the server spikes to 90 and 100% for several seconds.  there are 10 of these client stations around the company.  When mulitple clients stations are used at the same time, well you can imagine the wait time while the server is trying to process the requests.
In monitoring the performance at the server, I noticed that while the server was spiking the memory usage appears low.  the server has 2GB of memory, but never goes above 400Kb.
Could it be that I don't have the settings optimized, or am I barking up the wrong tree?
Thanks for any assistance.
