  • 5-10 second delay on first open in IE

    I'm new to this site but I have been running SBS2003 for about two years now and have done a few installs from scratch. I have learned most of it as I went along as there was not too much information back then on SBS2003. So I may be able to help a little on here and I hope to learn a lot.

    Anyway, here is my first question for all of you

    Config Info:
    Sever SBS2003 Prem.
    Running ISA, Exchange etc...
    3GB Ram
    2- Xeon 2.4 Processors

    Workstations: all XP Pro

    When starting IE for the first time or even after it has been sitting idle for a few minutes there is always a delay of about 5-10 seconds. Is there anyway to reduce this delay? This is the same on all workstations, although the server's internet access is instant and always has been. I have heard this is normal and there is nothing you can do about it but I thought I would see of anyone has a fix. Keep in mind after the initial delay as long as you keep using IE it works fine, it's just the first start up or after is has been idle for a few minutes.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you suspect the delay is coming from ISA Server? That would be my suspicion.

      My idea is yes, it's taking a little time to apply all the rules, protocols and filters through the isa, once it determines what permissions you have then it's fine. Then when it sits idle for a number of minutes, it then has to recalculate the permissions, again causing the delay upon starting or going to another website.

      That would be my guess and based anyway, is there a way to increase the amount of time before you loose the permissions and it has to go through the same process again and causing another delay?

        Unfortunately, I'm not sure. I have NEVER used ISA Server before but it's on my list of things to play with once I finish MCSE 2003 certification (June timeframe).

        My gut tells me that for an adequately equipped server, it should not take more than 1 second, let alone 10-15 seconds, for ISA to calculate permissions and rules.

        Check the server's event logs and maybe run through some performance monitoring exercises of the server when the timeout is happening to see if anything real obvious jumps out at you.

        Sorry I can't help you more.

          I performed a GOOGLE search and found somethings that might also be helpful:

          http://www.isaserver.org/tutorials/3...ce_Tweaks.html
          "Our first performance tweak we will look at is configuring your client’s web browsers for optimal performance. Any time you have a component on your network make a decision instead of you telling it what to do, latency is added. In other words, if you let your browser try to find a proxy connection, then it may take longer than if you just tell it where it needs to go."

            Thanks for the reply, ya I have done some major time on this and come up with nothing but "it's normal" even from a couple tech's that work on them everyday. Just thought I would give you guy's a shot at it... lol

            It's workable but jut one of those things that would be so much better if it wasn't there.

            Thanks again.
