what storage are you using (DAS/NAS/SAN etc?) did you follow the steps in the performance tuning section of the admin guide (enable name cache etc?).
there is a KB article in the knowledge base (mysupport.mcafee.com) detailing all the performance steps you can go through, but the name cache is the most significant.
you might also want to move from virtual to physical hardware - that gives better performance typically - mainly because most VM's are using SAN TierII storage which is a LOT slower than DAS (or TierI).Message was edited by: Greg Sanders on 11/6/09 3:35 PM
