I am trying to solve some performance problems.

We have a web server that calls another web server with WCF services installed.

There are about 20,000 calls in 1 hour, most are a few milliseconds.

But about 20 of them are 10 to 50 seconds

All of these have sc-win32-status 121 or 1236.

Question is what could be causing sc-win32-status 121 or 1236, and how could I solve this?

are they with sc-status 200? – Vivek Kumbhar Nov 15 '10 at 6:38

Could be a denial of service attack via and improperly set MinFileBytesPerSec metabase setting.

Thanks for the answer, it turned out that it was just normal use of the system with browser caching turned off – Shiraz Bhaiji Nov 30 '10 at 7:56
