I have a about 12 sites that all run from the same SQL DB. To aid performance I split the db in 2, and run on 2 seperate machines. Every so often I am having problems with all sites hanging up, and getting slower and slower until they don&#039;t respond. This was partly why we split the db.<BR><BR>I have been concentrating on the db servers as I thought all the load was going on there, but now all sites go down at once, suggesting the web server. Also restarting IIS or the box itself usually kick starts the sites for a while.<BR><BR>If anyone knows any IIS/SQL Server/ASP gurus in operation in the South East region of the UK please mail chris@softwarefirst.com - we may have some work for them.<BR><BR>Thanks All.<BR><BR>
