Are you using any profile management tools such as AppSense?

Subject: [THIN] Excel performance Issue



I have an interesting issue where some Excel power users are complaining
about performance on my Windows 2003 XenApp 4.5 farm (x86).  We are running
Office 2003 and performance is very bad when large XLS files are opened.
Its not uncommon for a user to have 2 x Excel + MS Access programs open
often using around 800Mb RAM.  I did some tests with only 1 user on the
server and Excel was very slow.  User was using 700MB RAM but no CPU.  The
XLS file is on the same network as the XenApp server so there are no issues
here (Gig networking). 

Server hardware 
2 x Quad Core CPU 
10Gb RAM 

Are there any tweaks I can perform to improve performance for Excel?  I have
a dedicated XenApp Server specifically for my 5 finance users so there is
plenty of resources
