Ubuntu: My Ubuntu on AWS is very slow


I have Ubuntu 14.04.1 install on AWS and it was getting slower and slower Not knowing what to do I updated and upgraded my system It did not help

Testing disk usage (df -h) I get

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on  /dev/xvda1      7.8G  5.9G  1.5G  80% /  none            4.0K     0  4.0K   0% /sys/fs/cgroup  udev            492M   12K  492M   1% /dev  tmpfs           100M  356K   99M   1% /run  none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock  none            497M     0  497M   0% /run/shm  none            100M     0  100M   0% /run/user  

It takes me some 6-7 minutes to login using PuTTY (use to instant) Where do I start?



Seeing that all resources are short (memory and disk) I upgraded my image to a new server with 4GB of ram and double the disk size and everything is back to normal.

Nice and fast

Thanks for all your help.
