Hi lkacso, SFW supports vss. 

Hi lkacso,

SFW supports vss.  You might want to try installing the latest cumulative patch (CP.)  There have been a few fixes that address performance issues similar to what you describe.  The latest CP (CP3) was released yesterday.  They are released on the last Monday of the month and contain all of the fixes from earlier CPs.

If you are concerned with using the latest release, then you should try CP2 that was released last month.

Thanks,

Wally
