Intermittent Network Share Slowdown
Posted on 2011-03-02
Server is a HP ML310 G5P - Dual Core Zeon 3Ghz, 8GB RAM, RAID 10. All connected via an Allied Telesyn Gigabit switch.
SBS 2008 Std fully updated
Supporting about 5 users. Server is as far as I can see heathly, only about a year old. Loads of disk space, responds well, etc, never had any previous problems.
Yesterday my clients reported to me that each of them had problems with the shared drive:
1. Taking an age opening any files (mainly office docs, maybe few KB in size)
2. Double clicking a file, and nothig happening
3. Taking a long time to renumerate files in drive
Also, 1 isolated complaint of Outlook 2007 playing up, saying "Need Password" (even though the user's password was valid). After entering password, Outlook states online but rapidly switches between "updating folders" and "All folders up to date" non stop. Tried a reboot.
Mostly after 10 mins of so the issues disappears for a while. Happens 2-3 time throughout the day so far.
Only 2 warnings in the event logs are:
Event ID: 2262
Description: ISAPI 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll' reported itself as unhealthy for the following reason: 'Deadlock detected'.
