We have an instance of VCO5.5.2 which runs parallel workflows. The parent workflow that triggers of the parallel workflows used to take around 3mins to complete.
We had some patches applied for shellshock and post that we see that there is clear performance degradation. The parent workflow takes 5-15 mins to complete.
Please let me know if there are any configuration files that I can look up to?
Most likely the patch for shellshock is not related to performance degradation.
It does not interfere with vCO workflow engine and I doubt that it is the couse for the performance issue.
Were there any other patches/changes in environment applied recently?
Consider also checking the connections timeouts of the external resources used by mentioned workflow.
