    Yo dude!

    I would start by checking the memory usage, you might find it creeping up
    constantly over the days, if so you have memory leaks.

    Then are there background tasks, for example if some automatic stuff was
    happening, like indexes being rebuilt, back ups etc, then maybe after the
    data goes past a certain point the maintenance takes up too much time.

    The other stuff is the network, are you alone? Maybe someone just found
    Kazaa and is attempting to download every known mp3 known to man. What
    about broadcast storms, I don't know what they are, but I saw it mentioned
    in a Cisco manual and I thought I might sound cleaver if I mentioned them.

    Upgrades, even if not your software maybe a side effect from something else.

    Hardware, loose conection, hey even when it sounds dumb, I had something
    stop working the other day, I want down to the test LAN and the RJ45 lead
    was in, but I still checked and it was not firmly pushed in.

    Then again as you may have surmised, although your question was easy for you
    to ask, it's not so easy for me to answer.

    There are special (and expensive) tools for testing memory leaks, you can
    get equipment to monitor network traffic, and windows has some useful built
    in stuff in some versions.

    If there was a simple button to press to tell them what is wrong, would they
    employ someone just to press it?

    Therefore it is a case of going through all the possibilities until you find
    it, but look for the memory usage creeping up first.
