The engine or other aspects of the BPM environment may appear to be slow. The database may also appear to have an excessive load coming from the BPM engine.  You may see a high count of rows in the PTODOITEMS table where instid=-4444.  You may also find messages that look like the following in the engine logs:

The Server is running out of Automatic Execution Threads ( 98 % of the pool is in use). It is recommendable to expand the size through the Process Administrator.
