My brother (who keeps the serves up to date) has produced some
pictures of whatever the server is doing.

They can be found here:

The last 2 pictures shows, that the usage of the pagefile is some 55-60%.

This server is dedicated to run firebird and nothing else.

At this time we suspect that the users actually are doing some rather
heavy reports.
I'll take a look at them to see if any of them by any chance should
cause any problems (but if they do, it very funny, that the problems
comes now, when switching servers).
