GroupDocs.Viewer conversion is much slower when running von VirtualBox machines.
I also tried with VMWare and Hyper-V virtual machines and there was only a small (and expected) performance drop from virtualization.
With VirtualBox however it’s 3 to 4 times as slow.
For example the included “K03.10289.101.1_REV4.dwg” takes about 8 seconds to convert locally and 35 seconds on the VM. A docx file for example was 3,6 times slower.
I have prepared a minimal VirtualBox VM with the issue reproducible.

On the Desktop there are is a “ViewerSpeedTest” folder with a simple test app. (You can of course test with your own apps, it should not matter)
You can use it to convert the included “K03.10289.101.1_REV4.dwg” file like this:.

So it should convert way faster than that.
Can you please check why conversion is that much slower on VirtualBox VMs?
