I have a strange morning ritual; the first thing I do before I shower or get dressed is I check my email. I like to know, as soon as possible, what's going on for the day.
Here's an idea... Fix your SQL server.
Either use entrprise mgr or qa to look at what is running and what it is doing.
Mike - never used Profiler?
Yes you can find out exactly what is going on with that. But I thought EM or QA would be a quick way to see what user, app, whatever was problematic. Then you could trace it with profiler.
My hosting company rebooted their SQL server because it was busy this morning too. I would never have noticed, but Inktome discovered my site and has been spidering it 24/7 these past few days so any down time generated an e-mail to me.
Did you make sure you have the slammer patch installed on that sql server? Those are some similar symptoms of that worm.
So what's the URL of the site? Now you've got us all curious.
BTW, I didn't mean to imply that we were using MS SQL server. I guess I should use the even more generic term "database server" rather "SQL server". My Bad.
Cool, maybe a linux or mysql worm to shut the holier than thou penguinistas up.
Zone alarm reported a couple fo dozen attempts by SQL destop server to access different IP adresses when I reinstalled it (Zone Alarm), and then suddenly they all went away. Anti-virus found nothing and it doesn't seem to be running anyway. Strange
Actually something is going on, here are a couple interesting links
Hey, so if there's a MySQL worm then that's reason to abandon MySQL wholesale, right? After all, that's what a lot of the Linux zealots said about SQL Server after slammer... [grin]
No, I am sure they will find another reason to stick with it.
What I don't understand is why you would ever have your database on an open port on your server!
Actually the New-York Times is worse than slashdotting.
