There has been recent cosmetic changes, but they worked for a day or so before the slowdown.  There is nothing new or unusual in the event log and traffic to the server is minimal (probably because it has been unusable for a day).  The Data.fs is about 500 mb.

I found that "cosmetic changes" I made cause an unintential self
induced, intermittent DOS attack with similar results. Maybe you are
experiencing something along the same lines?

The DeadlockDebugger product helped me figure out what was going on

(in my case I had buggy Javascript that caused an infinite reload loop)
