Windows 2000 Performance

By wpete574 ·
In a 950 Mhz win 2000 server with 512 133 memory and a SCSI UW160 15000 rpm hard drive I keep getting wait periods. When I check the performance tap in task manager it tells me that the (system idle process) is using 99% of the CPU. Can anyone help me PLEASE? Wpete574@aol.com

Is this a stand alone server or a DC? Replication causing the delays? What type of services is this box providing?

Do you have installed SP1? Witch services are running on your computer?

Is login from workstation slow? In my case, it took serveral minutes to log in until I entered the servers address in the DNS field in the DHCP setup. I had an external ISPs DNS address entered and not the on-site Windows 2000 DNS servers address.

Just had a problem like this one...

The machine was slow browsing any drives through My computer or explorer.

We had a mapping in the path statement to a server that no longer existed. Once the path statement was changed the machine began to operate normally.
Check your path statement in the Evironment Variables and remove anything that may be a problem.

Good Luck

I dont know if you realise but having 99% cpu on your idle process is completely normal. Its just a way of distributing the percentages through the processes. It basically means there is 99% CPU power free to use. What do you mean by wait periods? It just takes a long time to boot up or is this during application execution? If its a boot up issue, you may get slow speeds because of the SCSI bus communicating...hope this helps..
