It's an old AS400 Server, still running on old version, probably the load cannot handle or the TCP stack is buggy.
Surprising by placing an additional network card solve the latency issue. All the existing traffic will go through this new card except for file downloading or data transfer. AS400 is a mystery to me. It is a powerful system which can run multiple platforms concurrently (Linux, Windows NT, Windows 2000 etc).
I do not want to find out why it solved the problem, unless I really want to go deep into the architect of AS400 system.
