very poor interactive performance during network copy on dl 360g5

I have a proliant dl360g5 with windows 2000 server installed.
nic is nc131i i guess.
I copy a file to the server at maximum speed on our network, which is 100mbit full duplex. During the copy process the taskmanager is showing 4% cpu usage at maximum, nothing more. But on that box i can't do anything else I can't even press start button. the menu will open about 2 minutes later. It looked like a scheduler problem or whatever. No other process will get CPUtime. It's really annoying. After stopping the copy process everything works fine again. Does somebody else discover this problem? regards,dennis

Hello Dennis,

As always, I would recommend the basics; Firmwares & drivers & softwares !!

http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/locate/20_6215.html

Or You can use the firmware maintenance CD from

http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/27783.html?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
&

Proliant Support Pack 7.6 from :
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/24183.html

& if even this don't resolve it, then
Boot from a SmartStart CD & run a Complete Diagnostics !

Regards,
James.

Re: very poor interactive performance during network copy on dl 360g5

Hi,

after updating everything try disable TOE.

Since this is a G5 server and uses the 373i Multifunction NICs, try disabling TCP Offload Engine for each NIC, there are known issues with these NICs.
If you use teaming, disable TOE from NCU and recreate the team.

are you using NIc teaming?

errors on Integrated Management log or event Viewer?

Re: very poor interactive performance during network copy on dl 360g5

After you've investigated the teaming and TOE enabled/disabled, what sort of memory size does your DL360G5 have and how large a file are you transferring? Is there still free memory on the system during the transfer?

If you do a transfer which does not involve the transfer of a file (eg netperf TCP_STREAM) does the system become similarly unresponsive?
