Gazetteer address locator timeout

I am still a newbie in the whole GIS field, so there may be an obvious answer that I am completely oblivious about.
I have, using ArcGIS desktop 10.2, and a feature class of roughly 125,000 record created a Gazetteer-style address locator, defining PlaceName, City, and Region attributes.
While testing the locator, using usually one-word place name, I found out that it performs very slowly, processing about 120 record/hour, which meant that on one single line address can take up to 4 minutes of processing, that is running on a 2.4GHz i5 processor.
Even when published on ArcGIS Server 10.1 on a different machine, it's still as slow.

Is the expected performance, or what am I doing wrong?
Thanks for your help.
