Tnx for pointer. I'll take a look and report back. SlimServer is running on
a relatively fast processor (AMD 64 FX-53) and 1GB RAM and normally there's
some 400M RAM free; no other applications running. Slim app takes some some
109M. Will advise with more details when problem occurs again. Any other way
of chasing this issue down?

Hi John,

Can you look at the process viewer when the breakups are happening and
see if your computer is low on memory or the CPU is loaded? That could
cause the issue you describe. Apart from that, congestion in the
network could be an issue.

Ok, thanks. From those specs, I doubt it's a CPU problem. :)
Probably more likely to be a network issue.
