Sun 7410 Getting Hammered - Suggestions?
Hey all, looking for any possible advice here. I've raised a case with Cutter who are looking into it.
Weíve got a start menu share on our S7410 that has student and staff mapped/shared (via DFS) start menus on it. Everything has been fine for ages, but yesterday at just after 10:00 CIFS, Network and CPU started getting absolutely hammered, and CIFS is now showing a hurricane on the BUI.
The access is only to the staff start menu and is coming from staff PCs. It drops off overnight when no one is logged on then starts up again in the morning. The type of operation going on is NtTransact and isnít hitting the disks. Network traffic is an even split of in and out.
The only thing that changed around the time this started was that I added a new shortcut for software to the staff start menu. Itís just a shortcut to a html file but it did have a slightly unusual character in it (an e with an accent). Any idea if this could be the problem? Nothing else has changed to my knowledge. Iíve now removed that shortcut completely but so far it hasnít made a difference. It might not change until the DFS caching runs out (30 mins).
