just from first look it seems that your DB server is having some kind file

    I'm not sure whether it was a windows update or a symantec update but
something caused my customer's pervasive database to start dragging.  I took
a capture from a workstation client and it only seems slow when retrieving
the data but once the data is retrieved, manipulating seems normal.  There
are 3-10 second delays in accessing tables etc.

    The workstation IP: (windows xp pro sp3)
    Database Server IP: (windows server 2008 standard)
    Application Name: Agris (pervasive database)

    I've completely disabled symantec on both the client and the server and
it hasn't made a bit of difference.  I'm having a hard time sifting through
the capture I took.  All I did was have the client login and access a report
during the capture.  Maybe 20 seconds tops.

    I've attached the capture file; if anyone can see anything useful, I
would appreciate you sharing it.
