Hello there!

I looked up your account and had a look at the server. The hypervisor looks great, about 70% idle. The best thing to do at this stage would be to dive in deep and see if these questions lead you down a path toward resolution:

  1. What is slow?
  2. How is it measured?
  3. What are the pieces that are involved?
  4. What are the pieces that have the potential to cause it to be slow?

Breaking down the possibilities and ruling them out is the name of the game, and you’re best equipped to know those answers for your software stack.
