Got a Windows server here that falls apart after several hours of use. Gets really slow, then speeds up for a few seconds, then gets really slow again and repeats until reboot. Can’t seem to pinpoint what is failing. Can’t reproduce the problem at will either. No obvious errors in Event Logs. Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic for several hours with no errors. Here’s the layout:
