Hi all, bandwith at our branch offices seems to be throttled by some of ur terminal server users. We have about 20 users on at any one time, 8GB of RAM, of which 4/5GB is constantly utilised. Is this a problem? CPU usage is low except when it spikes when people open up docs and programmes etc.
However some staff connect in from home via TS Gateway, which incidentally is on the same server as the TS, not ideal but there we are, and i can therefore see the amount of data sent to them in kilobits. One user received 225MB from us yesterday! Im not sure if Adobe reader on the TS is partly to blame because as soon as he opened a PDF i kept refreshing and the amount of data sent to him was about 10MB in a minute or so! However i couldnt replicate this scenario with another user when i tried it to be certain that this was the cause but i will try again with another user. However if we were sending that amount of data over our line to him then i guess that leaves hardly any to service our branch office users? we do have a 10MB leased line but even that probably couldnt handle what we were sending to ihm and then all of the other offices, hence the slow down of TS for the other office users. ive enclosed a screenshot of the users TS gateway connection so you can see the volume of data sent. Any help or recommendations on how to solve this would be much appreciated.
