James, > In the real world, number of users receiving sub second response time, IMO, -IS- > the point of all that we do. I agree, and I'd go further to say that, in the real world, sub-second response time depends upon many different factors within your client's NT network. I'll venture a guess that their actual configuration involves the application being installed on the client, with the DB centrally located on the server. In this configuration, NT isn't acting as an application server at all, but rather as a file server. The poor response time could be due to the client machines, or network congestion. > > MIPS, Mhz, cycles, etc. are just ways for bit flippers to compare weenies. > No, I think they're valid measures.
