I have two Windows Server 2008, Server A and B. Both ones have exact same hardware and same O/S version. However, server A is slower than server B. How do I realize that? For example, if I have to unzip a zip file of 1GB, in server A this task takes double time than in server B.
I can only think that there is some program in server A that makes it slower.
However, if I run "resmon", it shows that server A is consuming 8% of memory and server B 9%.
So, what could be making server A to be slow?
How could I compare what programs have server A and B?
Would be OK for both servers to list installed programs or to list services? Would be there a way to list both things?
I compared services between them, and they have almost the same. Few services in Server A that were not running in Server B, were disabled. Also, I run last Windows updates for both servers.
Still, server A is slower than Server B.
However, comparing taskmanager processes I realized that server A has more processes than B.
Server A has more processes like: cmd.exe, cpqteam.exe, csrss.exe, dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.e , dwm.exe, mmc.exe, wuauclt.exe. Those processes exist in both servers, but A has more of them.
There is one process in server A that does not appear in Server B:
Could it mean something?
