ASP Slow in IIS5

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Randy L. Martin, Jul 2, 2003.

  1. At 1pm today, all the ASP pages on my production server
    started to just crawl. HTML pages open quickly, but ASP
    pages take forever to load and often time out before they
    load. What would cause this so suddenly and what do I
    need to do to fix the problem?

    I see this question in all the other news groups, but no
    one has an answer and I've seen nothing of any use from
    Microsoft. Its seems to be a really common problem.
    What's the answer.

  2. My server guy just found the problem. Here's what he said.

    "It turned out to be that ODBC Tracing was turned on,
    which caused a dramatic slowdown in the processing of
    ODBC requests. This also created a 146 Meg log file in
    the D:/ drive called SQL.log. The moment I turned of the
    ODBC Tracing (found in Control Panel --> Administrative
    Tools --> Data Source (ODBC) --> Tracing Tab) the problem
    ceased and the sites began to serve up database driven

    We hadn't installed anything. There were not any
    indications in the logs. The CPU was running at 4-10%. I
    don't think this was just turned out either, it probably
    was turned on some time ago and just built up to a
    problem. The pages are running fine now.
