Cisco Smart Switch SG200-18 issue

I bought a new switch lately - SG200-18 16-port 10/100/1000 SLM2016T

  • It is used for my colocation rack with 10 web servers
  • 3 different IP subnets used in this network
  • 1 Uplink port given by my data centre provider


Lately,  the network has been slowing down and eventually times out. Also when  downloading files from these servers, they will time out


When I swap the above switch with my 2 year old switch: Cisco SRW224 -

... It works fine! the speed is fast and good.

When I swap it back to the SG200-18 switch I bought, it crawls again!

I didn't change any setting in the switch I bought, everything was default and out of the box.

What is the issue? I felt I wasted money buying SG200-18.

Experts, really need your advise here.
