I have several databases mirroring with a witness. All 3 machines are local to our network and have generous nics. Monitoring the mirroring, it does not seem like there is a lot of network traffic.
Yet some of the databases' mirroring is pausing without warning. When I restart them, they pause again almost immediately.
What could be the culprit?
Well, now it looks like they are mirroring again...when I went into mirroring manager and tried restarting them, it succeeded now--whereas yesterday it would automatically pause again.
Anyone know why mirrors would just pause? Wouldn't they just failover?
