What to check when the Orion website and server are very slow or there is a CPU and memory spike

Updated Oct 03, 2018


This article provides information on how to check your current server environment and health status. This helps you address the most common reasons for performance issues on your server without sending diagnostics to SolarWinds support.


This article can help you perform the following to eliminate bottlenecks that cause performance issues within the set environment:

  • Audit your environment and verify if it has been set up as recommended by the SolarWinds minimum requirements, or according to the settings
  • Save on time needed to upload the diagnostics 
  • Check the environment health internally if security procedures do not permit uploading diagnostics to SolarWinds support
  • Identify the root cause before opening a support ticket
