Extreme poor performance of "Form Submissions Cleanup" Schedule Job


EPiServer Forms: 4.25.0
EPiserver CMS: 11.12.0

For us, 'Form Submissions Cleanup' job takes 45 mins and more 

Consumes 45% of DTU. Wondering is it same for any of you also? 

(Investigations are in progress)

Best Regards

Forms are stored on DDS so if you have a big number of forms submitted and if a considerable amount of that need to be deleted, it will be slow. Not saying 45 minutes is totally fine, but it sounds to me it is kind of "reasonable range"

Ignore (Consumes 45% of DTU. Wondering is it same for any of you also? ) for above Job.

Hi guys,

I know this is an old Thread, but I have a similar experience and did not want to start a new thread.

Current versions for CMS and Froms:



The "Form Submissions Cleanup" job runs for over 12 hours, retention is currently set to 30days. There is around 300 form submissions per day. Is this performace to be expected?

What are the steps we can take to try and lower the performace and cost considerations? Your advice and guidance will be greatly appreciated.

That does not sound right. I will file a bug to Forms team
