Subject Re: Response time banding
Date Mon, 31 Jul 2006 11:08:14 GMT
Do your 2 second requests happen at a particular time of day?  In the  
early morning, when my database vacuum is running, my response times  
shoot way up (to around 5 seconds).  Check to see what else is going  
on with your system during the times the page response times increase.
