i've found that sqlagent$msfw service causes loss of hdd read write performance.
That process takes large amount of ram and performs many HDD read-write operations.
Process is connected with microsoft ISA.
Im not sure if i can just disable process, cause i need to keep all functions working.
I can only say that turning off this service BRINGS MY TRANSFERS BACK to normal speed. Now i have average 60mb/s read on main hdd.
Booting didn't speed up.
Booting time isn't as important because that occurs only a few times a year on a server. How much memory is free when not running sqlagent$msfw (required when MSDE logging is used for ISA Server)?Does it boot faster if you disable the service?
