Server Running Slow

Issue – A school running PCSchool on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (64 bit) found that the server (and PCSchool) was running VERY slowly.

Solution – They increased the memory on the server (allowing for an additional 4GB) and  changed some settings on the server as follows:

  • Disable receive-side scaling
  • Disable chimney offload state
  • Disable receive Window auto tuning
  • Disable offloading in the network adapter properties
  • Disable IPv6 in the network adapter

After these adjustments the server ran much faster.
