    I have been experiencing a weird slowdown of my server and i thought i would post whats been happening to see if anyone can give me some direction on how to fix it.

    I have business class internet at my home office and i am running 10.6 server on my mac mini. I have an airport extreme hooked to the modem and it has the static ip information from my ISP and it redirects traffic to my server. I have dns set up and the web server running. It runs great then after awhile it starts to take several minutes to server a web page. One site is my main site in which a styled normal page takes several minutes to load but a test page with nothing but a paragraph of text loads fine. If i restart the server all pages start loading normally.

    The only thing i haven't tried is hooking the server up directly to the net through a switch instead of it having an internal ip and doing forwards but i don't think that will help since restarting seems to fix it temporally. Are there any logs anywhere i can look at to help narrow this down?

    The site load fine here, so I assume this is just an ad?

    not an ad

    no its not an ad. It doesn't happen all the time. When it does happen i restart the server and it fixes the problem. It happened again today. I have been pouring over log files and still not found anything. CPU usage only gores to about 40% and overall network traffic is low.
