Telnet Application Processing Times
The Telnet Application Processing Time exceeds the critical value set in Expert Thresholds. "Application Processing Time" measures the time spent waiting for the application or server, as opposed to network latency. Network Latency plus application processing time is referred to as Session Delay, which is tracked by a separate Expert Threshold.
Possible reasons for the event:
The slowdown is probably the result of a server or application configuration issue. Perhaps the server hardware is overloaded with disk I/0 requests, or some other system component (for example, the CPU or NIC) is too slow given the traffic it is expected to handle.
If you are running the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server telnet server in VTNT emulation mode, you may be observing a bug acknowledge by Microsoft (KB244681) that is unpatchable as of this writing.
