API takes a very long time to respond


API takes a very long time to respond

I am sending 2 different api calls to the API.  One to look up existing contacts, and one to add a contact.  Both calls are taking just over 5 minutes to respond.


I've checked the code making that calls, and I can't see anything wrong there.  I have a number of different API calls set up the same way, and they all work fine.


Any ideas on why the API server is taking so long to respond?
