I moved the database to a new server this morning. I hope that this will relieve the slowdowns that have been seen. Please let me know if you see anymore bad behavior.

The following is what PAIR found...

----------

Thank you for contacting pair Networks.

I found another database on this database server that appears to have been
causing this problem. I have disabled that database and this should help
the overall speed of the server. Thank you for notifying me of this
problem.

Thank you,
