I move both of my VM redeploying in West US. It was fine last night.

Today it's unusable. What should I do, move to West US 3?

    Hello, @Brian Parker ! Moving your VM will address only a small subset of potential causes. Usually performance decreases are due to traffic increases or workload surges on the VM.

    Why is my VM suddenly slow?

    If your VM isn't performing as expected, the first troubleshooting step is to use Performance Diagnostics to determine what the cause is: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/azure/virtual-machines/windows/performance-diagnostics

    1. In the Azure portal, select Virtual machines.
    2. From the list of VM names, select the VM that you want to run diagnostics on.
    3. In the Help section, select Performance Diagnostics.
    4. Select Enable Performance Diagnostics
    5. Select the options to install and run for the tool.
    6. Agree to the legal terms and accept the privacy policy.
    7. Select Apply to apply the selected options and install the tool.

    While looking at your diagnostics, keep these common VM performance issues in mind:
