GMSC 2018 Update 4 - slow performance



we've just upgraded GMSC 2018 from Update 3 to Update 4. Everything works correctly but the client is significantly slower than before. The problem is not just in map performance, but also in workflow navigation, client functions as construction tools, edit mode, ...


Anybody else has problem with performance with new update? Is there something I might miss during the installation that may cause that?


Thanks for any suggestions,
