Filemaker Server 17 two to three times slower than 16

Since my recognised FM hosting specialist moved my databases to a different dedicated server with FM17 ( everything has been a lot slower than it was when we were running FM server 16.


I'm guessing that common tasks take two to three times as long.


In particular:

- viewing and scrolling a layout with one record per row and 500 rows takes ages to download enough data to be able to scroll

- exporting a CSV to my local desktop with three columns (two dates and a number) and 1,000 rows takes a minute or two. It seems to take maybe 3X as long as before.


In Admin Console the CPU is around 1%, the memory is around 45%, network throughput seems to peak at around 70,000 bps when downloading the CSVs.


Does this sound normal? What should I look at and what questions should I ask please?
