Koha 3.22.02 is a lot of versions behind the last 3.22.x version (3.22.21).
Take a look at the value of use_zebra_facets in your koha-conf.xml file.
If enabled, disable it (see bug 13665).
If you are not using Plack, take a look at this wiki page
You will see the performance you will gain to use it (and memcached) on
Koha versions >= 16.05
