I have a server which i P2ved as it is and this is giving us a lot of grief, the CPU usage (graph) sometimes rises to 100% and stays like that for 15 min, while users have to wait 10 min for a result to be displayed. there is a progress database on this server and an pplication uses this. it could be because of the bad programming as well, i just want to rule out the possibilty of it being CPU related
So basically how do i go about decreasing the numvber of CPu's to 1 from 4, this is a server 2000, do i just reduce the number or do i have to do somethin with the HAL
