I am having a simple web application of file upload using apache file upload utility. I have a strange problem. When i was testing the application for 2000 records in the file it was taking 3 secs to process but when our business analyst is testing the same, it is taking 40-60 secs to process the same file. I took the same file and it took 3 secs for me on the same server at almost the same time. We are only 2 person testing right now so there is no chance that there can be many users testing. I tested 3 times on my PC and then tested from my colleagues PC and got the same results (i.e. 3 secs).
Can anyone have any idea what can go wrong for my Business Analyst PC? Any settings in IE6?
Here are some more details: 1) File size is 1.7 MB 2) Same file is used by me and my BA 3) We are connecting to the same test server and we are on the same network 4) I am using the Apache File Upload utility and most time difference is in executing the 2nd line of code which is parsing the incoming multipart request:
Its taking 33 secs for executing the above 2 lines for my BA and 3 secs for me.
Please let me know if any additional information will help.

We found that the problem is encountered only from that particular machine. I asked to install Mozilla and try uploading a file using that. If that gives the same result then it is a system problem else I will check the IE settings.
Karan, Your though process is sound. It is good that it is just the one machine as that means your web app is fine. I don't have any other thoughts. It's more of a troubleshooting a computer problem now. If you have more questions on this, you might want to post a new thread (possibly linking to this one) in General Computing. People there know more about what can go wrong on a computer.
