Server 2003 user access slow, disk quota ?
Posted on 2008-11-03
Server 2003 containing 400 users profiles and mydocuments in a school.
At times when everone logs on together the access times slow up.
Memory and processor look fine, network around 3%, Avg disk quota peaks at 200
DNS I beleive OK.
It is raid 5 SCSCI (5 disks ) with my docs and profiles on different drives.
I assume its disk access times??
Would switching off disk quotas or shadow copy help?
Any other thoughts on improving disk throughput, what is the most important disk performance counter to watch ?
