Theaverage disk queue length for server  is currently 49.
 Physical disk time for server  is currently 165.31%.
Available operating system memory on server is currently 7 MB.

Newbie, sorry, was wondering what the above figures mean and how do they effect SQL Server 2000?

They indicate that your SQL Server is definitely suffering performance issues due to the disk I/O system being insufficient.

Accordong to general guidlines you need to get your queue down to under 10 at least.

Do some of these things:

1. Defrag your disk
2. Stop the SQL Service and defrag your disk if possible
3. Add some more disk drives and spread your data files, indexes and logs over them
4. Turn off any software compression
