Any known network shared library file issues?

Hello all,


I am looking to see whether or not there is know issue when sharing libraries from a network server. We have moved our libraries to a server and share them across the network but experience some sever lag at times. Does anyone have any experience with this? Also, if so, are there any recommendations on server settings, HD access speed suggestions and such?


Issue: When searching or creating a part into a library on the network share we see long lag times. At times the lag can be as short as a few seconds to as long a full minute. We are on a 100meg network working off of a dedicated file server. Mind you, this is an issue within libraries only and not with PCB creation, editing or schematic design. I feel this is an issue with the libraries exclusively.


I would appreciate any help and info.
