We are using MS Windows Terminal Services (WTS), and have +/- 80 clients who connect to the box using Praim thin clients. We use MS Excel viewer for a lot of our users to view spreadsheets. Unfortunately, this seems to hog one of the processors on the terminal server. We lose 50% of CPU to the transaction according to the task manager stats. Is there a way around this, or do you know of another product for viewing Excel spreadsheets in a terminal server environment?
This sounds like an application question, sorry. You can sometimes tweak applications to make them stop hitting the processor so hard -- I'll refer you to the book
Mastering Windows Terminal Services to see how, as it's not a short explanation. If anyone has a suggestion of an alternative application, I'll be glad to hear it and pass it along.
