    I have a Leopard server running at my work but for some reason it is now running very slow compared to this Friday.

    Over the weekend we had some storms and had a power outage, I do have a battery backup on all of my servers.

    The server specs are as follows:
    2.8 Quad-Core (Single Processor)
    6GB ram
    Server HD of 80gb with about 50gb open.
    The other two drive bays are set up in a raid and is used for storage.

    The speed problems are very apparent when I log into the server at the log in screen, it takes about 25-30 seconds. Also this computer is set up as an AFP and SMB share, the SMB will not connect at all. The AFP share is connecting but it will take about 10-15 seconds.

    I have repaired permissions both Saturday and again this morning, both times there were repairs made.

    Any suggestions on what else I can try?

    I'd try resetting the PRAM just for the hell of it. Perhaps something is off with the cache.

    This problem has just popped back up again, well maybe it has been there but was not as noticeable.

    Here is a list of what I just did.

    Single user FSCK
    PRAM Zap (not sure if it worked didn't ever notice the second restart)
    Power down, unplug, press power button for extended amount of time.

    Any suggestions on where I should go from here?

    Check your log files and running processes. See if maybe you have a runaway process hogging up resources.
