Sharepoint 2013 Slow

Hi,

We recently implemented Sharepoint 2013 in our domain. 16GB RAM, plenty of HDD space. Since last Monday it became slow suddenly. Because this is new only 25 people using it at the moment. I see 12GB of RAM is being used all the time. When we reboot it the memory usage goes down to 8GB and eventually goes up to 12GB.
On the resource monitor i see the processes below
w3wp.exe 3.2GB,915MB,677MB
noderunner.exe 2.2GB,869MB,845MB,753,752
DistributedCacheService.exe 1.7GB

Is this normal? do they have an effect on the performance?

Please help.

Thank you.

make sure you dont run the service applications which arent necessary and not in use.
also check on the schedules of the timer job for eg, user profile import.and how often its running etc.

We have checked all that. To create a site collection it takes around 20mins.

We have rebooted the SQL server and then it came back to normal speed.

previously the SQL was using 10.4GB of memory and after the reboot it's only using 2.5GB.
