Hi Chaps,

We have an SBS 2008 install which has been running fine for around 8 months, now we have an issues when users are using a custom application that access data from the SQL server, the application hangs / runs very slowly. The same happens when users access Sage, the data files are also on a network drive, this is with XP clients.

Many Thanks

can you see how much disk space is left ?
is the SQL Server been properly maintained, Backups, reindexes etc ?
Does your SQL Logs give any errors, timeouts or anything ?
has anything changed recently or were things just getting progressivly worse ?

Hi,

We have over 200GB disk space left, SQL Backups & ReIndexes are being done, there are no errors or timeouts that I can see.

I wouldnt say things are getting progressivly worse, its just random times when applications that need to access network data will freeze or hang.

have you checked your network traffic as a bottlekneck ?

when it's slow, I would turn on SQL profiler to see if the database is acting up.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
