It might not be your applications themselves that are the problem, it could very well be your device. In order to rule out any device-related troubles, you should troubleshoot it. Your processor’s troubleshooter will check your device extensively for any issues that may be slowing its performance down — it will check for a wide range of problems, from the amount of people that are logged on to how many programs are running to whether or not malicious software has been unknowingly downloaded. If it does, in fact, find any problems, your troubleshooter will get to work right away in fixing your troubles.

Your device will be full of programs that you never use. This is because manufacturers have a tendency to pack the devices that they create with programs that in no way, shape, or form benefit the consumer. For instance, if you were to look on your PC now, you’d probably find a multitude of trial editions of programs that you’ve never even considered using — these versions are added to devices by manufacturers and software companies in the hope that you, the consumer, will use them, find them to be useful, and then pay for the whole package.

This kind of tech will allow you to move your applications from one infrastructure to another with all the libraries, files and other things that they need to work in one big unit. This kind of tech can also be used to minimize your attack surface and reduce the likelihood of a cybercriminal exploiting your applications. Keep in mind that containers to truly benefit from the containers, you must ensure you are securing containers before deploying them.
You deserve for the applications that you run to be efficient. That's not always going to be the case, though, which means you may find yourself having to take the above advice from time to time.
