CyberStation applications such as Graphics and Reports running slow

Issue

Continuum operation unacceptably slow.

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

CyberStation

All CXs, i2s and B3s

Cause

Wireshark capture shows lots of SMB traffic between the machine running CyberStation and the server.

The Server Message Block (SMB) protocol is a network file sharing protocol, and as implemented in Microsoft Windows is known as Microsoft SMB Protocol.

Resolution

Identify the application/service responsible for generating this traffic and stop it or relocate it to a different machine where it will not interfere with CyberStation operation.
