    Not sure what you mean by this, but also not sure it matters.

    "Weblogic/Forms server is runing in a SaaS infrastrcuture..."

    To understand the possible cause(s) you need to better understand the type of "performance" issue. Here are some possible examples:

    • Slow startup time, even after caching has occurred.
    • Slow during navigation between application objects (e.g. moving text field to text field).
    • Slow to return data set after query.
    • Slow/delayed screen redraw.
    • And so on...

    If this is a networking issue. There are many factors that might cause such a problem, none of which are related to Forms. Consider this:

    • Bandwidth limitation on proxy.
    • Name resolution delays (DNS).
    • SSL cert or code cert revocation check delays.
    • Region. Meaning, where is the user in relationship to the target server. And where is the DB in relationship to the mid tier.
