Question Pages loading slow from remote computers

Here is what I am using
Red Hat 9 Linux

Here is the problem:
I am running a PHP/MySQL program on an internal network. The pages are taking 10 seconds to load.

Here is what I have tested:

1. The pages load quickly on the local machine via IP or localhost
2. HTML and PHP pages load equally slow regardless of size by IP or hostname on remote systems on all Browsers. (The IP address is static)
3. Ping replies return quickly to and from host.
4. Host can pull up other pages on network quickly.

I am truly stumped.. Any answers or suggestions for further testing would be really helpful!

You might check to see that the computers that are the slower on the network, that the network devices in use are using 100MBS LAN speed.

They are 100mbs .. I don't believe the LAN speed to be the problem..

All other computers on the network are able to load pages from other servers without any delay

I am expecting the problem to be somewhere in the apache and or network configurations on my Linux box.

I seem to be having the same problem. I'm running an apache serevr on linux. I can access the webmin panel (via port 10000) and download from my IRC bot both at relatively fast speeds, but when I try to view plain webpages, it's really slow. As soon as I restart apache it's fast but then starts to get slower every few minutes until it's inaccesable again. I figure it's a problem with either port 80, or apache. Any suggestions?

My problem was in my network configurations. I had entered my domain information for logging on purposes. Even though I connect to the pages via IP address, it was slowing down trying to resolve the host. Your problem sounds like something different. Perhaps you are being attacked with a DoS program. Maybe there is a memory leak? Are you logging a lot of data?
