    Slow performance from NPM GUI

    rakem

      Hi,

      We run Orion NPM on a windows 2003 x64 (Virtual Machine) which has the following specs:

      16 x 2.9Ghz CPU

      12GB RAM

      The SQL DB is hosted on a dedicated SQL server, not the solarwinds box.

      Here are some more details from NPM

      Network Elements8038
      Nodes1770
      Interfaces6040
      Volumes228
          
      Alerts1272
      Events109067
      Pollers15554
      Polling Engines1

      The web GUI is generally very very slow.  It takes about 2 to 3 minutes to logon and just general browsing is slow and painfull.

      We also run NetFlow and NCM on the same box...

      We have been told by the vendor who implemented solarwinds that we need more polling engines as there is an 8000 element maxc per polling engine. Can anyone confirm or deny that?

      Is there anything we could do to make the server more responcive?  Running perfmon on the server shows that there really isn't to much going on, but for some reason its very slow.t

      thanks
