Slow issue in NYC1 - cannot log support request!

I have an issue with one Droplet in NYC1 that takes several minutes to boot. Once booted it is pretty slow.

Another droplet is super quick in NYC1.

I would raise a support ticket but cannot log in to the Support console as it says account not found! I use Google SSO for my DO account.

  • Hi Alex,

    Thank you, I still cannot log into the support portal but managed to raise a ticket over email.

    Support said it might be a Linux issue but I just can’t see how! The BIOS screen where it says “Booting from Hard Disk” stays on screen for quite some time! Linux hasn’t even started the boot. It’s like the local storage it is loading from is super slow!

    I have 2 large volumes attached to the Droplet and they are performing fast!
