"The network is slow"
....is the very descriptive statement Ive been hearing from some staff today
However being so broad, its hard to detirmine whether its their PC's, or slow at heavy usage periods or if there really is a problem
There is no problem with logons, they are all quick as ever, havent heard any complaints about that either
What does seem to be slow though is document access on the servers, and general profile related stuff, such as a big delay in the start menu opening (it is redirected for all users)
The only concern I do have is one of my DC's seems to be straining a bit. Not only is it a DC (1 of 2) it is the primary DNS server, DHCP server, and holds all the users data.
Its a single 2.4Ghz Xeon, with 1GB RAM, and a 254GB RAID array, which is one of the lower spec servers.
I havent set up any proper trace logs or anything yet, but looking at the real time performance counter it is as follows:
% processor time averaging at 13%, maximum 28%
Disk Queue averaging at 0.347, maximum 1.2
Pages/sec averaging at 78, maximum 427
Do they look abnormally high? Stupidly I havent got a 'perfect' sample to compare to, since I never took any before
Are there any more useful counters I should be watching?
Just want to see if the server is being stretched too much thats all

Re: "The network is slow"
If logon times are ok and GPO etc is working fine to apply startmenu redirection, I would look at the server where the startmenu is redirected to.

Re: "The network is slow"
Long shot this one, but do you have a CD Server or something? We have a big network hit especially if the CD Server is down as the shortcuts stry to find the source everytime they're accessed!

Don't worry about it. Staff here just like a moan. One week they couldn't find anything to say so they thought of the excuse "The printer in the corridor is too slow" - this particular printer has a first page out time of 3-5 seconds and a print speed of 40 ppm. (it is mono). So we didn't even bother looking into the matter.

Does this solve your problem??

Your DC seems powerful enough. Granted we should (and plan to) upgrade our as they (2) are only Opteron 144s with 1gb ram and sata HDDs

hello fella, hope you had a good xmas.
I failed 291 this week!.
i've found the startmenu can be delayed if a link doens't exist, we for instance had a link to a random computer with a program on it, when we disconnected it the startmenu took ages to load.

I find that what the teachers actually mean by the term "network" is the "Internet" of which I have no control over as our ISP keeps dropping the ball.
