Virtual SQL Server Running Slow

Last Modified: 2017-12-02
We have a Windows Server 2012 R2 Server running Hyper-V.  The virtual server is also Windows Server 2012 R2.  The virtual server is running SQL Server 2012.  I have allocated 16GB of RAM to the server and it has 12 virtual processors.  The resource manager shows that it is not being worked hard but we have a program that uses SQL to pull reports and it is extremely slow doing it.  Are there any thoughts?

Thanks for any help.
