Resolving the problem
Items to check:
1. Ensure no excessive logging in TIP
Remove the traces or set them to info to check whether it makes a difference or not.
2. Ensure no excessive logging in other applications in the system.
3. If LDAP Federated repository/VMM is being used, check whether it is contributing to the performance issue by creating a dummy tool with no group assignments and compare the results.
4. Check which tool operations are slow and which are fine. Try running a test to simply list all tools or delete a single tool. Compare the results.
