Witch program slows down the Server

Hello experts.

I have a client who has a Windows Small Business Server 2003.
The server has 4gb Ram
Customer complaints, however, still about the server is slow when using their financial system (Navision).
My question is whether a program can be run on the server so that you can see what possible could spend too much process/ram-
I've looked in task mgr without finding an answer, because everything seems to run as it should, and the server has 1,5 free memory

Thanks.
Regards Upgrade IT..

Try to run perfmon and find some info about performance monitoring.
Look at CPU usage, RAM used and Disk qeue length.

Probably you have not enough ram, but you have to be sure your server will support more...

If you have not enough ram, system will page virtual memory to the disk which is much much slower. This slows down entire server.

Hi i had the same problem and i use a proccesing  tool called procexp.exe and it picked up alot of unused programs on the server

You are right!
Procmon is great but you have to really know what is unused by your server. Otherwise you may cause some trouble...

yes that i know but if he is just running financial system (Navision).Then 4Gb of ram is more then enough so it is not a problem with the ram

Commented:
