Ever since late July I have been involved to diagnose a performance problem. After a few weeks of back and forth, dicing through the numbers and adding instrumentation to our code, it boils down to network delays in our .Net remoting calls. At that point I should have throw my hands up and pass the problem to the Network engineers. Unfortunately that person was on vacation and I need to carry on. After a bunch of trials and errors and flipping around options on the network driver level, the problem seems to be related to SNP/TOE. So next time you see a network slowdown, check if SNP/TOE is turned on.
