Outlook is Slow/ Reconfiguring TCP/IP
Posted on 2011-03-01
My friend is a network Administrator. The network
runs 3 servers with Exchange 2003. All users
access e-mail by using Microsoft Outlook
Last year there were 1500 users. Over the past
year the number of users increased by 15
percent, to its current level of 1725
Response time for Outlook increased
significantly as the number of users increased.
Currently, some users report that Outlook
requires more than three minutes to open and
that each e-mail message requires an additional
two minutes to open. However less than 10
percent of netework bandwidth is in use
I cannot understand how to solve this issue. The management is asking to reconfigure TCP/IP please tell how to do it?
Current projections indicate that the number of
users will increase by 25 percent within one
year. Management asks you whether upgrading the
Exchange servers will prevent further
degradation in Outlook performance? What should he do?
He needs to gather additional data in order to
reply. Which data should he monitor?
a. Usage of processor, memory and disk space on
each Exchange server
b. Usage of processor and memory on each global
c. Length of the SMTP queue on each Exchange
d. Number of messages sent to recipients inside
and outside the Exchange organisation
I think it c.
