I was thinking solely a network bandwidth issue... If your box (cpu|I/O) is max'ed out, I agree with Sybrand and you need to upgrade to something that is even remotely close to being supported on a box that is supported. You would probably get a huge boost just going to newer hardware - of course recognizing that the newer hardware may not support   W2K and/or Oracle 7.3... Received on Tue Dec 02 2008 - 18:14:12 CST
