Slow access to a web page.

By Shanghai Sam ·
We have a server that we are using as a web server for ASP. It has dual PIII 933 processors, 512MB RAM, 2 18G SCSI mirrored hard drives running W2K Server sp2. We currently just access the web pages thru our LAN and normally it works fine but sometimes it goes from page to page very, very slowly. When this happens, the server itself does not run slow and the system idle process almost always shows 97 - 99 percent. It is a fairly new server and doesn't have that much loaded on it and has only 2people hitting it thru the LAN. What can I do to make it stop this?

Slow access to a web page.

The CPUs and RAM have little to do with how fast you download from the web. All the pathways in the computer are faster than the pipeline we call a network. How many people are using your network? I understand only two connect to the web but eachuser fills up the pipeline and slows down the rest if it is not designed to handle the load. I suspect that too many people are on you network when you go to the web. It is almost impossible to tell you rather more routers, switches, or faster media is your answer. It also maybe just which protocols you are using.
