I'm no programmer, but it may be sluggish due to inefficient coding. Optimizing whatever routines cause it to be slow would eliminate (or at least decrease) said slowness.

Simple code may not always be the most efficient.
Thus the 1st stab at a piece of code is often based on speed and simplicity in writing it.
Only when proven to be inefficient is the code revisited and a more complex yet more efficient system designed.
If you're counting sheep you might just put a pebble in a pile.
if you've 25 sheep that's ok. if you've 25,000 you might develop a system of 1 pile for 10s, 1 pile for 100s etc
