    When we updated to SP1 of Arc 10.1 we noticed a marked decline in the drawing performance of several of our feature classes. The only way that we were able to rectify this issue ( which also affected the ability to use the Measure and snapping tools) was to change the config status of the feature classes from Geometry (we're a SQL based shop) to SDEBinary.

    Once those changes were made the performance returned to the previously known levels.
