We are facing a strange issue with ArcGIS Server on VMWare. We have installed ArcGIS Server 10.1 on (VMware® Workstation
10.0.1 build-1379776). We made sure that all settings were applied as described in ESRI documentation and both physical and virtual servers are barely loaded. The problem is as follows:
1- When we call REST Services URL's for the first time after starting ArcGIS server, it takes around 40 seconds, ~ 1 minute for the page to be displayed. After the first time, access becomes fast and normal
3- Find task, buffer task and geometry service operations take the same time as well to respond
We have assigned the VM 16 GB RAM and 4 cores. Any clue how to solve this issue ?
