Networking

I noticed my mouse movements have been a bit jerky since I started using 2000i. The network activity monitor in windows 2000 shows traffic whenever I move the mouse in 2000i. In release 14, (also installed on my computer) the there is no network traffic shown when I move the mouse. My question is, since we are maxing out our 10baseT network, is this network traffic necessary and is it causing the mouse delays? Thank you in advance.

FWIW, that doesn't sound like anything to do with AdLM or networking
AutoCAD. You've got something else going on. Check your mouse drivers,
network (NIC) drivers, and run some diagnostic logs (PERFMON on NT) to watch
for whatever may be hitting your box. We've been using 2000, 2000i and now
2002 in a network environment for years and have never seen this type of
behavior.

There is definately something going on....when we installed AutoCAD 2000, we
did not seem to have this problem, but with 2000i this problem appears
sporadically....I did not realize that network traffic was being generated,
but we definately saw EXTREMELY slow performance just moving the mouse
around in relatively simple drawings. Come to think of it, when that
happens, everybody complains about generally slow network performance! (100
mbps) I assumed that the network was slowing down AutoCAD, but now that you
mention it, it could have been AutoCAD slowing down the network.

We are running Windows NT4 SP6a workstation on an all windoze network, using
the ADLM with the software installed on each workstation (I think Autodesk
calls this a Client Deployment). We have cad stations ranging from P2-300
up to p3-933 all with at least 256 MB of RAM, Logitech mice, and DLINK
network cards.
