Epicor 9 down to a crawl ..... SOLVED - Email found in subject

Thanks so much for the scripts! The only one I hadn't used before was the one to clean out the Reports folder. That will free up a lot of my Monday time.

Thanks again!

Hi all

We experienced a sudden slowdown beginning of this week and finally solved
it and i want to share it with the group.

We upgraded our server about 6 months ago to accommodate Epicor 9 and we
where really happy with the speed of epicor running on the new server.
Suddenly beginning of this week we started experiencing slowdowns that
almost brought us to a halt. i tried restarting the server but to no avail.
Our first guess was that since we changed our switches over the weekend this
would be the issue and we tested epicor directly on the server and it was
working relatively fast so we where sure that the network connection is the
issue.
We called in our network guy and we ran various tests and we saw that the
network throughput is very good and we don't even utilise 1% of it so we had
to find other things that can slow down the system.
We did think that its a result of upgrading to patch level 9.04.507A 2 weeks
ago but we checked trough all settings and it was fine.
The last thing (as always) i reminded myself reading here on the group a
while ago about cleaning the temp files so i went and checked our
epicor904data directory and it was about 25 GB and when i looked into this
there was so temp files in the root of the folder the size of 1.3 GB each.
So i backed up that folder then shut down the appservers and deleted all
files in that folder then restarted the system and once i did that all got
back to speed ...........

So my question is what causes these files to grow out of proportion? and is
it pure coincidence that it happened when we changed switches? maybe the
server was not shut down properly while the network guy did his job?

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Those strange files in your EpicorData folder are generated when you run
reports. If they are getting overly large, you likely have some queries that
are returning more data than you may need.
Unfortunately you can't determine the source query by looking at the files.
Check your custom reports and such. Anything that is taking especially long
to print is a likely culprit.

Thanks,
John

From what I know, the temp files can be created if processes are interupted
(such as sever not been shut down when processes were running).

I would recommend running a script to clear out the temp files on a regular
basis. Of course adding and removing files regularly mashes up your hard drive
so it's also advisable to defrag your hard drives weekly.

I have a script that does all of this weekly as we used to have slow-downs.
Since implementing it, we havent had one single issue in about 9-12 months
related to speed.

Are you progress or SQL?

Thanks.
