    You must first identify the actual bottleneck before addressing it. "Latency" is a generic term which could mean network, disk, CPU, memory.

Some things to check consider:

  • Add RAM to SQL Server box
  • Decrease the distance between the SQL Server and the SharePoint servers
  • Isolate the SQL Server from other applications--just have SharePoint databases on one server, no other instances or non-SharePoint application databases
  • Point the web servers back to themselves ( in the HOSTS file.
  • Decrease the services on the web front end servers that should be application server specific.
  • Add more servers to the farm and scale out.
  • Follow the recommended requirements
