Post What Slows Down Model Speed?

I am trying to run an experiment with a large number of scenarios as well as replications. I am running the experiment overnight with the intention of finding it done or near completion in the morning but I am having trouble getting the model to get through the run quickly enough to finish overnight (run at the "unlimited" speed).

I have a queue which is quickly filling with close to two thousand flow items from which 18 are randomly pulled by a processor (matching itemtypes, based on input, to an array filled with random numbers) and the remaining flowitems are quickly passed across another processor, 100 at a time, before being deposited in a sink.

I have a few visual tools recording some queue input data but that is all I can think of in the model that might slow it down.

If it is known that anything in my model is notorious for slowing model speed please let me know.

Also post other things that are known to slow the model speed.
