I'm trying to nail down why our application is sluggish at certain times. The application sometimes is zippy almost instantaneous and other times it is slow as molasses. The application is run on a server with clients in our department. It is only intranet communication. During the day after 10 am, it becomes super slow (until after 4 pm).
I am having the problem where the developers are pointing to our I.T. and our I.T. pointing fingers to our developers. Is there any way that a general user like me can isolate which is the major contributing factor? The only tool I am aware of using is the ping. Is there any other simple way to help give a clearer picture? That is the challenge, using tools that easily available on most computers.
