When I am getting slow response from TMF the message at the bottom of my browser (Firefox) about what server it is waiting on changes. The various servers might resolve to the same physical box, or to several boxes at the same site, or to servers in diverse physical locations. To complicate that it is common for a single server name to have multiple servers behind it to share the load; each time you connect it gets resolved in some way to the specific server you will be using for a while.
