Hello Jimontoro,

you have not provided many details.

A slowness in reaction to a command may be caused by the fact the device is attempting to contact an AAA server ,typically a TACACS+ server, in order to verify if the account you are using is authorized to perform that specific command.

If the server is configured but currently not available/reachable you can experience slowness

Or it can be the sign of SW bug or that the cpu is too much busy, it is not possible to say more.


sh run | inc aaa

sh run | beg line vty

sh ver | inc image

sh module

sh proc cpu history  can be useful to see if C4500 cpu resources are too much used or not

Hope to help
