We are working with Inventor on a Novell network where the software resides on the PC and the drawing files reside on the server. Our IT dept has noticed that once we open an INV file the pings to the server grows exponentially even if we are not doing anything to the files, INV is just sitting there. It only drops when we close the assemblies. His concern is that we only have 3 people on INV now and we are using upto 15% of the server, what will happen when we put all 17 people on inventor. I would think our server will be maxed out.
