Process running slow on Azure virtual machine at times RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a functionality in our app (installed on Azure virtual machine) that finishes in approximately 20 minutes normally in Azure virtual machine. But there have been instances, where the same process took hours.

    There was one instance when the same process kept on running for four hours and still did not complete. I had to log off from Azure VM, restarted the VM from Azure portal, logged back in, started the same process and was quick to finish, as expected.

    What is causing this performance degradation at times, where not much activity is going on in the VM, apart from running our Excel-integrated app and that is it.

    Please advise or suggest.

    Kind regards,
