I am installing an application which runs ADS version 7.1 (Medisoft).

The server software is installed on Windows NT 4.0 SP6, a dual-XEON server
with gigabit networking hardware.

Performance is a crawl, and I'm hard-pressed to see what action to take.
I've tried downloading 7.10.15, but it says something about the serial #
being wrong.

Anyway, I'm looking for quick suggestions here. Any ideas? I'll take
anything....

Thanks in advance...
DR

Hi,

Is it possible to narrow it down a little bit more? Is "everything" slow?
Or are certain operations slow? Can you run the application on the server
to see if it is slow there as well? Can you maybe open a table with
Advantage Data Architect from the client and see if browsing a table is
slow?

Without more information, my current guess is that it is a networking
problem. If you could get a trace of the activity with a network sniffer
such as Ethereal, we could look at it and determine if there are problems in
the communications.

This problem was determined to be a defective network switch.

Thanks
