I'm seeing a very annoying pause when I run certain applications on my machine. Basically the machine pauses for about 60 seconds with no excessive processor, disk, or network usage during this time (just regular amounts of usage). I have no idea what the process is waiting for. Are there any tools to help me diagnose a system/network/domain error?
I think it might be a domain issue because I am building a web application (Asp.Net MVC in IIS 7.5) and I get this 60 second pause whenever it throws an exception on my machine but it works as expected on the test server (the error renders in under a second). The test server is not on the domain.
Again, this pause (about 60 seconds with no excessive CPU, network, or disk usage) happens in multiple applications, but the most annoying one is when an error occurs in my web app (it's very difficult to debug when it takes so long to fail). As a note, if I start my debugger (I typically don't) the error is caught right away, but once I run the code it pauses. Moral of the story, the pause is after the error is thrown - it is not in my code (happens in other apps anyway).
