I have been running into an issue on MOSS 2007 for the last two weeks, users are reporting extremely slow responses from SharePoint, a lot are reporting time outs when doing anything within Sharepoint. I have run through all the usual items and cant find anything that could be causing this, it is definitely not load as there are roughly 10 to 20 people using SharePoint currently in the Christmas period, which is at roughly 200 when everyone is in the office.
We have found some locks on the UserData table in the DB but clearing these when they happen only provides a marginal improvement. I have checked with both the server and network teams who have indicated that there is no updates/work happening on the servers/networks.
Has anyone have some ideas on other stuff to look at in or out of SharePoint that maybe causing this slow response and time out?
