@vallsas - We have just been through a similar exercise ourselves. There are many different causes of slow VA performance, although the most likely culprit is your SAS web server and the many web apps that run on it. I suggest you check out VA Environment Manager. If your VA web server is using more that 20% of your CPU on average then that could be your problem area.Typically it should be using under 10%.


My best advice is to open a track with SAS Tech Support so they can collect the diagnostics that will allow you to identify the cause. This is what we did and the result is our VA platform is performing better than it ever did!

Thank you for the valuable information!

@vallsas - How are you getting on with this? Have you checked out Environment Manager for unusual behaviour like high CPU and memory usage or lots of performance alerts?
