How to speed up IBM RAD?

I was recently forced to start using IBM RAD (rational application developer) due to corporate policy. I found it extremely slow and I am wondering if there is something wrong with it? I used eclipse and jboss before and although it wasn't lighting fast, it is at least acceptable. Are there any settings that I should check?

Kelly,
RAD uses a ton of RAM. Do you have enough? Do your teammates experience the same problem?
