I'm trialling ThreadMaster, it looks like it might be just what I'm after, thanks.

@mfinni I've got myself confused here - it is quad-core Xeon X3210, with 3 cores available to the VM. Still I'd call it 'very low-end' myself and I'm looking forward to replacing it :-)

@Miles very good point, I'll look into that and issues like compacting, expunging etc, thanks

@mfinni I trust the hardware about as far as I could throw it - particularly the UPS. The RAID is software-only so no battery-backed cache (the TS is virtualized on top of Linux/KVM).

@Miles I've swapped AVG for Microsoft FEP already (disabling the GUI for non-admin users) and that improved things a certain amount. Thunderbird (3.1) seems to be the worst culprit but I'm loath to try a newer version in case it makes things worse.

good point - though the active sessions can be as low as the dozen mark when the freezes occur, or as high as 30

@Greg can you provide a link for how to re-define where the profiles are stored?

@Evan that is very interesting - presumably I could redirect to a drive other than the system drive then? Can I use GPO to leave the Administrator profile on C: and redirect the rest to D:? With roaming profiles can you redirect the entire folder (ie not just the "My Documents" folder or whatever?)

I'm not sure I understand using Roaming Profiles in the context of Terminal Server - does it make a difference that we are talking about a pure TS environment?
