Issue:
Command lines on the Virtual Appliance are done through the SSH interface.
Some machines exhibit sluggishness with certain commands. Specifically, those involved with rsyslogd. 
Environment:
Virtual Appliance 14.0 and above
Cause:
The issue is usually the rsyslogd which is forwarding its logs to a remote location.
When this forwarding is either reduced or cut back completely the performance will pick up.
Resolution:
Go over the file "/etc/rsyslog.d/rsyslog-custom.conf" and make relevant modifications and restart the rsyslogd daemon.
