    Server Performance

    Hello,

    I have a Windows 2003 server and I have a big problem. It performs file management for the curriculum domain. But before anybody comes to school 7.30am the hard drive light is on constant I look at the performance in control panel and the paging file and memory is at 100%. The processor goes up and down but never reaches 100%.

    I have tried to look in the event viewer but there is nothing to suggest a problem.

    So this error occurs first thing in the morning and during the day, the hard drive light is on constant and the paging file and memory maxed out!!

    There should not be a lot happening on the server at any time it is only transferriung small files.

    I have tried everything but cannot resolve the issue

    Can anyone please help


    Steve

    Re: Server Performance

    Do you have volume shadow copies enabled? Its default run times are 7am and 12pm. Are there any other scheduled processes in task scheduler?

    Have you checked that the anti-virus isn't performing a scheduled full scan?

    What is shadow copying?

    I have backups being scheduled at 8.00pm every night but nothing is scheduled during the day because pupils are using the server.

    Using filemon might gives some clues

    Try process explorer also from sysinternals it will give you alot more information than task manager and it also tells you what files and reg keys are open as it has integrated filemon and regmon to some degree.

    Re: Server Performance

    Maybe the server has run out of ram and it's thrashing its page file?

    The paging file is 1.47 Gb and the server has 1Gb of memory.
