Hi, I have some slow response on my web server. Fallowing the caputre, i noticed a 5s' gap after the server's first ACK to the client's http request, which to my understanding should be the first segment of the data transfer packet. I think a network congestion or tcp slow start, or an I/O interruption could've been the cause, but have no idea how to figure it out, could someone help to take a look at the capture and help about? Thanks in advance.

It would appear it's the server that's slow to respond to the client request.

Frame 4 is the client POST request, frame 5 is the server TCP ack of that request and frame 6 is the start of the server response and this frame is 5 seconds later than the previous, so something is slow on the server side, likely NOT network related with the TCP stream to the client.
