Hello, so we have this (quite old) SBS 2011 Standard which has recently become abismally slow.
It's mainly a data server (we're not using Exchange) and sometimes when a client opens files on the server there are very heavy slowdowns, to the point where I had to reboot a client yesterday because it would hang on a small Access database.
I think I've found the culprit though. Disk activity is always very very high, and the processes behind this activity are related to SQL Server 99% of the time.
It looks like the main cause is the SBS Monitoring service, which relies on SQL Server to function.
So I think I nailed down the cause, but the question is: what to do about it? Is there a way to circumvent this? Thanks.
