Files on network drives (domain environment) are opening very slow
Posted on 2010-08-13
Hello all, users are reporting that network files are very slow to access when opening them from a network drive i.e. opening a spreadsheet in the accounting drive takes a few minutes, whereas before, it took a few seconds. The only change that took place was an upgraded fiberline that replaced a dsl line. I also set the router to full duplex so that we get the full throttle. All of this was done at the backend so i am not sure if it is coincidental or not, but is there a way to pinpoint bottlenecks with network drives and files? The files themsleves are not too large so it does not make sure sense why it takes minutes to open them.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
