We have 1 NW box that seems to have developed a problem. Copying files to or from the system results in dreadful trhoughput.

The machine is on a VMware ESX cluster and no other system seems to be affected.

The machine has 3GB of ram but the strangest thing of all is that if the swap file is turned on the system seems to swap straight to disk untill the swap is at 99% of all available memory.

throughput is Something like 1Mb/s through a 1Gb link.

I have built a new server to replace this one but we need to get the ZEN workstation Images off and it's taking forever even with the consolidation utility.
