I am the IT person at our orginization. We too see NV2 run slow to the point of unacceptable. I have NV2 Server on a 2003 server. However, NV2 is NOT a background application, but a foreground. It is my thinking that NV2 would run better on an XP PRo box rather then attempt to set the affinity of NV2 on a server at a higher priority (I tryed setting the NV2 to above normal and it took 100% of the processor). Since I have other Databases running in the background this is totally unacceptable.
When I find a faster way I will post it (xp pro box hopefully), if there is a faster way
