    Fedora 30 super laggy on beefy server hardware

    Hello fellow Fedora fans.

    I've been using Fedora for a while now and just got my hands on a nice Dell Poweredge R610 server.

    The server has very "beefy" specs:
    2 x Intel XEON processors with 4 cores each
    32GB of RAM
    500GB of combined hard drive space

    So I thought it would be a good home for Fedora and it would be a fast performing system.

    Well, not really. I booted into live mode and it was very laggy. I gave it the benefit of the doubt, blamed it on the slow USB interface, and still went through the install. Very painful when the mouse moves 30 seconds later to where you want it to be. Also, when the keyboard thinks you pressed a key more than once.

    After the install process was done, rebooted into the hard drive and still same laggy performance.

    What am I missing here? Shouldn't all that server hardware make for a nice home to a Fedora 30 workstation install?

    My first thoughts on this are:

    • Some kind of issue with the video drivers.
    • Problem during the installation which would require a reinstall.

    Is the desktop session running under Wayland or X server? If Wayland then try logging in via X server session instead.

    Linux is very talkative on booting up. Check out the output on the console terminal (CtrlAltF1) or use
    Code:
    dmesg
    command. There will most likely be an obvious culprit.
