I have run into an intermittent problem in a web application the last two mornings. The application has been in production for a while, with no recent changes. The error ocurrs when a certain SQL query is executed. The problem occured at around 8 am yesterday and went away at around 11 am. It reoccured this morning (and has not gone away yet). The error is: I quick search on Google and some testing suggest that it is server load/network related. I would appreciate any pointers on how to resolve it.
