I have a RHEL 7.9 server running as a virtual machine within a VMware ESXi 6.7 host.
When I Putty/SSH over to this RHEL-7.9 machine there is slowness:
- most of the time I get a logon prompt immediately, sometimes not,
- after providing my login I sit and wait for at least another 60 seconds before I ever see a Password prompt, then immediately I am logged in.
How do I troubleshoot this with strace? When I tail the /var/log/secure or /var/log/messages file I do not see any delays in the logs updating.
Thanks in advance.
